Food can become a solution for managing overwhelming feelings, rather than a way of nourishing ourselves.
I want to understand what purpose your eating is currently serving in your life and support you to find a more balanced relationship with food, yourself and others.
When we become conscious of how and why we use food as we do we can then create space to look for alternative ways of dealing with what troubles us. In this way, change is possible.
I was raised in Lebanon, a multiethnic and no doubt conflicted country, where every morning I woke up to a new crisis, a new threat, a new loss. However, living in Lebanon despite all the painful circumstances, taught me innovative ways of dealing with distress, trauma, and survival, but most of all, it taught me how to still strive and enjoy life no matter what. I understand how repressed emotions, anger, frustration, trauma and grief could lead to an unhealthy relationship with food, body and self-worth.
My approach is informed by my integrative training in counselling and psychotherapy and combines a wide range of theories and models, enabling me to create an approach which is tailored to you specifically.
I work from a holistic perspective and believe that all of us have many different aspects or parts to us. I provide a warm and non-judgemental space in which these parts can be safely uncovered and integrated.
Despite the hopelessness you may feel about your eating, I want you to know that recovery from eating problems, and the potential of a life that is not dominated by eating, is something that is absolutely possible.
