Our Philosophy

Your health is our concern,
not our business.

Our Therapeutic Approach

We practice without judgement.
We empower our clients so they no longer feel as though they are a puppet to their emotions.
We provide a Holistic approach, viewing body-mind-soul as one entity.
We combine holistic nutrition with mindful practices, as well as CBT and NLP.
We teach our clients how to connect with their bodies through self caring activities in their daily lives, such as yoga, dance, drawing, and candle-lit evenings….
We meet every clients where they are in order to create an individualized care plan.
We provide our clients with the necessary tools to be able to cope with whatever life may throw at them.
We develop realistic goals and give our clients the opportunity to try out what works in their personal situations the best.
We take our approach to the next level and we also hold our sessions in a “real world” environment.

Hope is a possibility that gives strength.

Why We Are Different

We address emotional eating and eating disorders with a holistic approach.

  • We provide services for adults and children with their parents.
  • We emphasize on building and strengthening the mind and working towards the development of emotional well-being.
  • We work on gaining insight of what the root cause of the current behaviour, as opposed to just treating the symptoms.
  • We also address, face, and accept emotions such as fear, anger, and anxiety.
  • We develop and practice coping skills that can be accessed in times of relapse.
  • We accept relapse as a part of the journey.
  • We take our sessions into “real life” environments such as restaurants, parties, grocery stores, and business meetings.
  • We provide support through workshops for other health and wellness practitioners, medical professionals (i.e. MD’s, ND’s, nutritionists, etc.), as well as parents and relatives.
  • Our aspiration is to help our clients achieve a profound understanding of their relationship with food and its effect on their lives, as well as an appreciation of what is necessary for their own personal recovery.
  • Our approach addresses the wide range of factors that contribute to the development and maintenance of emotional eating behaviour.

Recovery and Emotional Wellness

We all have our own unique meaning of recovery, some of which may include:

  • “I no longer run away from my emotions. I allow myself to recognize them and accept them.”
  • “I take a new step every day towards my goals; even when I am scared, I will do it anyway!”
  • “I can put a halt to unwanted behaviours, and can direct my thoughts on a more positive pathway.”
  • “I am ready to face new challenges because I AM RECOVERED.”

We do not claim to be healers; we would rather you see us as your guide. We will be there to support you on your journey the whole way, but it must be you who takes the steps forward. Try to view this process as your own unique fight. It is our privilege and honour to be by your side and guide you to victory!

Once you choose hope, anything's possible.
