Do you think you have an eating disorder? Betty Stockley Counselling is here to help you make a positive change in your life. We provide eating disorder counselling in Toronto and surrounding areas. Eating disorder is characterized by irregular eating habits and severe distress about your bodyweight. This disorder includes inadequate food intake which can damage an individual’s well-being. Ask yourself these questions if you think you have an eating disorder:
Have you ever tried to reach out for help?
Do you find yourself isolated from others?
Do you often feel lonely or misunderstood?
Do you feel that the emphasis in our society on thinness, the perfect figure, the right clothes, etc., has had a major impact on you?
Is your eating disorder your friend, your comforter, your way of dealing with feelings or your way of dealing with anxiety?
Many Women Try to Fit a Specific Image
Eating disorders can appear in various forms, including anorexia, bulimia, binging, purging, overeating, and excessive exercising. We have been bombarded by magazines filled with images of thin, beautiful women. Some of the models we have been programmed to revere have an anorexic, gaunt, often despairing look. Yet, women in particular, have starved themselves and risked their physical and emotional health in an attempt to achieve that look of the so-called perfect beauty. A professional team specialized in treating eating disorders is fundamental in healing and recovery. Our counsellor, Betty Stockley, is a Certified Addiction Specialist and has worked in the field of eating disorders for over 35 years providing eating disorder counselling services. She will assist you in finding new and creative ways to make the changes you need so that you can live a more fulfilling and happier life. To schedule an appointment, call us!
