I am a registered psychologist with over 25 years experience working with individuals along the full spectrum of disordered eating. I also have experience working with individuals who struggle with depression, anxiety, trauma, self esteem, perfectionism, relationship difficulties etc. Making the commitment to seek therapy is a courageous step. Feelings of shame are common. I try to create a relaxed atmosphere that progresses at a pace that is comfortable for you and at the same time challenges you to heal and grow.
I believe symptoms such as restricting, bingeing etc are usually ways of coping with emotional issues. They can be ways to manage anxiety, numb difficult feelings, exert control over something, feel comfort or pleasure, give us a focus on something that is measurable etc.
In therapy we work together to understand what your symptoms are helping you with. We then work on learning alternate coping strategies that are not related to food/ shape or weight.
