Do you find yourself constantly thinking about food and eating?
Have you noticed other areas of your life being affected by thoughts and behaviours surrounding food and your body?
Are you consumed with "sticking to your diet" at the expense of all other things?
Do you find yourself turning to food regularly to cope with unpleasant feelings?
Do you experience rebound eating - overeating in response to "breaking your diet"?
Are concerns about your weight and body making life miserable?
Do you find yourself in the "dieter's dilemma" - discouraged at the thought of going on another diet but unsure what the alternative is?
Are you confused about all the different food and health messages out there?
It's my greatest joy and pleasure to work together with those struggling in their relationship with food and body. If you answered yes to any of the above questions then please email me to book your free initial 20 minute consultation. I offer in-person and online counselling.
Please note: My counselling programs aren't appropriate for people struggling with active eating disorders (i.e. those who are engaging in dangerous behaviours such as purging, or those who are engaging in food restriction or binging once a week or more). My programs ARE for you if you've had an eating disorder and are now in the early (or late) stages of recovery.

Porn addiction, internet sex or cyber sex addiction are becoming increasingly prevalent. Not everyone who looks at pornography on the internet has a porn addiction. There is a large number of people who find they cannot stop watching porn even though the want to. Online porn addiction can affect a person’s work, family, and ability to date or form intimate relationships. Hours on the internet can pass before the addict realizes they have neglected their commitments. The internet has increased access to new sexual avenues and anonymous hookup sites. The wide availability of sex can be a problem for people who feel controlled by their sexual impulses.
What is porn addiction? Porn addiction is defined as the overuse of pornography in a way that has negative consequences. A porn addict feels powerless to stop watching porn even though they want to stop. The porn addict may find that they are unable to control their internet use despite negative consequences. Pornography addiction is often isolating and consuming. Many porn addicts report that hours can pass before they realize how much time they have spent watching porn. Porn addiction can be time consuming. Porn addiction takes away from the time a person might normally spend with their family, friends, or working. When a person watches too much pornography, emotional and sexual intimacy with a real live person can be overwhelming. A fear of intimacy may reinforce the cycle of porn addiction. It is easier to turn a video on or off than to relate to a real person.
