Eating Disorders Therapy

Are you struggling with your relationship with food and with your self-image? Do you feel continuously stuck and unsure of how to move forward? Eating disorders can be incredibly difficult and painful to live with as you replay the same cycles over and over again. These negative patterns can make you feel hopeless and alone and this can negatively impact your relationships. Understanding the complex origins of these conditions and having a safe space to explore and heal is critical. Oftentimes, our fixation with food can be a way to maintain control in an otherwise chaotic environment which can then further highlight all the things outside of our control, leaving us never feeling good enough.

Common Eating Disorder Symptoms:

Emotional and Behavioural

  • Refusal to eat certain food, severe restrictions of food categories

  • Discomfort with eating around others

  • Food rituals (i.e., only eating certain foods, monitoring chewing)

  • Skipping meals
