Dysfunctional eating is a habit-formed, outward manifestation of underlying conflicts. The goal of therapy is to increase awareness of the underlying issues, develop healthier coping skills, and strengthen a positive sense of authentic self.
Clients are encouraged to develop an outlook of compassionate curiosity toward self and their healing journeys. Unlike other compulsive behaviours or addictions, people cannot stop eating. However, over time, eating habits can become healthier and less conflicted.
