Usually when I get a call from somebody who wants to become a client, what they typically describe is feeling out-of-control with their eating, and way of being with food.
I work with my clients in a holistic way that looks at what drive eating-disordered behavior, we look at beliefs, energy, issues with relationships that contribute, and of course ways of eating that will support them. I typically see people once they are feeling truly desperate.
All eating disorders are at heart, feelings and beliefs “disorders”. What I mean is that the entire purpose of
eating that is not serving you, is to block out painful
thoughts and feelings. It’s a diversion away from what you
might be feeling otherwise. Protection of sorts, from painful
experiences or trauma or ways of thinking about yourself.
It’s really important to understand that the eating piece or the weight-related piece is essentially all of your psychic pain that
has been made physical. Women and teens with eating disorders have found a sort of “container” to put all their painful thoughts, feelings, experiences into- a place that holds all of it, whether conscious or not. Whenever we feel vulnerable, shamed, depressed, unworthy, angry, not good-enough, etc we
will see it through the lens of our eating and weight.
Does this make sense so far?
The eating behaviors, the weight, the feelings of being out of control and hating ourselves for it, in a strange way are just a decoy- something that distracts you from the real deal.
When we start to uncover the painful beliefs, experiences, and pain stored in our cells and bodies, and hearts and minds and energy field (yes, we are literally embodying these memories/events/beliefs) and find new ways of soothing ourselves, managing the beliefs, relationship patterns and boundaries,
AND introduce loving self-care, the eating calms wayyyy down!
We will talk more about this.
In the meantime, shoot me an email or feel free to post your thoughts about all of this here on the blog. I am here to help you, and have learned the exact system for getting my clients out of the misery that has plagued them for decades.
I would love to help you too.
Wishing you much love and every blessing-
