Eating Disorders

A person’s relationship to food and to one’s’ own body can become some of the most complex relationships a person may have.  Issues of self -judgment, sexuality, blame, shame, guilt, pleasure, self consciousness, gluttony, power, control and well being are just some of the many facets involved in disordered eating.   The world of food often stands alongside social pressures, it is often part of family life, of family dynamics and culture, while it is a source of sustenance and fuel, and for many, it is a source of great strife.
