THERAPY FOR DISORDERED EATING & BODY IMAGE
READY TO FINALLY MAKE PEACE WITH FOOD AND GET BACK TO YOUR LIFE?
Many people struggle with some low level eating disorder behaviour, and some may not even realize it because these types of behaviours are so commonplace nowadays.
In our current culture, it seems like being preoccupied with food and your body is the norm, rather than the exception. These behaviours and the pursuit of thinness tend to be glorified and praised, especially in social media, where there is a strong value placed on appearance and physical fitness.
IMAGINE A LIFE WHERE YOU ARE NOT STRESSED ABOUT WHAT YOU'RE EATING...
You may be finding yourself dissatisfied with your weight, anxious about your food choices and preoccupied about the way your body looks.
Constantly over thinking what you eat in a day adds significant stress to your life and you wish you could just relax a little.
If this sounds like you, then you are likely ready to get off the rollercoaster and find food freedom.
We’ll work together to help you break free from the obsessive thoughts, unhealthy behaviours, and deep fears that are keeping you stuck.
Body Image & Self Esteem
The experiences we've lived and the messages we've heard influence how we perceive ourselves.
Body image is the mental representation that you create for yourself.
The way you "see" your body can easily change from one day to the next, even though your body doesn't actually change. Developing a healthy relationship with your body involves mental and emotional work. Negative and distorted body image is not actually about your body at all...
Body image and self esteem start in the mind.
Let us help you unpack your beliefs and understanding about yourself. Together, we can work at changing your thoughts so that you can start feeling confident in yourself!
What We Do
The therapists at MODERN PSYCH have knowledge and experience working with individuals of all ages and genders struggling with eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, binge-eating disorder, atypical anorexia, as well as those struggling with behaviours such as food restriction, exercise addiction, compulsive overeating, chronic dieting, and emotional eating.
We work with clients who have completed inpatient or residential eating disorder treatment programs and are continuing their recovery process at home, those who are seeking recovery in an outpatient setting, those who have tried diets and weight loss programs and feel uncomfortable in their body, as well as individuals who are struggling to fuel themselves well and exercise appropriately.
We are also happy to support families on their recovery journey, and are experienced in Family Based Treatment (FBT).
