Professional Guidance and Support

Eating disorder therapy offers professional guidance and support from therapists who specialize in treating eating disorders. These therapists have expertise in understanding the unique challenges and complexities of these conditions. They provide a safe, non-judgmental environment where individuals can express their concerns, fears, and emotions related to food, body image, and their eating disorder. Having a therapist who understands and validates their experiences can be incredibly empowering and beneficial.

Developing Coping Strategies and Skills

Eating disorder therapy helps individuals develop effective coping strategies and skills to manage the challenges associated with their disorder. Therapists teach techniques such as mindfulness, stress reduction, emotion regulation, and self-care practices. These skills can help individuals navigate triggers, manage negative thoughts and emotions, and develop healthier ways of coping with stress, anxiety, and body image concerns.

Addressing Underlying Issues

Eating disorders are often rooted in underlying emotional, psychological, and interpersonal issues. Eating disorder therapy provides an opportunity to explore and address these underlying issues. Therapists help individuals identify and understand the factors contributing to their disordered eating patterns. By addressing these issues, individuals can gain insight into the root causes of their eating disorder and work towards resolving them, leading to long-lasting recovery.

Restoring a Healthy Relationship with Food and Body

Eating disorder therapy focuses on helping individuals restore a healthy relationship with food and their bodies. Therapists work with individuals to challenge and modify distorted thoughts, beliefs, and behaviours related to food, weight, and body image. Through therapy, individuals can develop a more balanced and realistic perception of their bodies and learn to nourish themselves with a positive and intuitive approach to eating.

Developing Self-Compassion and Positive Self-Image

Eating disorder therapy fosters the development of self-compassion and a positive self-image. Therapists help individuals challenge self-critical thoughts and beliefs and promote self-acceptance and self-care. Through therapy, individuals can cultivate a kinder, more compassionate relationship with themselves, focusing on their strengths and unique qualities rather than solely on their appearance or weight.

Education and Relapse Prevention

Eating disorder therapy offers education about eating disorders, their consequences, and the process of recovery. Therapists provide information on nutrition, meal planning, and balanced eating. They also assist individuals in developing relapse prevention strategies, teaching them how to recognize warning signs and manage potential triggers. Education and relapse prevention strategies empower individuals to sustain their progress and maintain long-term recovery.

Improved Quality of Life

Eating disorder therapy ultimately aims to improve individuals' overall quality of life. As individuals progress in their recovery, they can experience increased self-esteem, improved body image, reduced anxiety and depression, enhanced relationships, and a greater sense of well-being. Therapy helps individuals reclaim their lives from the grip of the eating disorder, allowing them to experience life beyond the shell.

I am grateful to have had Shani be a resource and support during a difficult transition in my life. I had enough self-awareness to google 'therapy' and Hatch-Me came up. It was the reviews that led me to finally submit a request to connect with someone, and I met Shani. I understand why he encourages his patients, once we are in a better headspace, to share our experiences here in order to potentially attract other souls searching for support. There is no pressure, but an understanding of how reviews drive awareness - I am here for it. If you are looking for some guidance, support, or a path to a better headspace, I encourage you to check HM out and meet with anyone on the team. Shani - you are an angel. You provided appropriate therapeutic support and relevant guidance to me during a dark time in my life. Your dedication is unparalleled. You are so accommodating, work around my timings, when I'm late, hungry or when I am in a situation where I need a call or text - you do your best to be there, and you are. It tells me that you actually care about me, my wellbeing, and you want to see me thrive. I hope I am fortunate enough to know you forever. I can assure you I will continue to visit HM whenever I need to kick my negative thoughts in the 'behind'and focus on budling the life I know I deserve because, I Love myself enough to try a little more each day. Thank you for that. From my experience, Shani is patient, but he will also confront your thought patterns when needed. He will support you with reassurance and also challenge you to move outside of a comfort zone. He will be clear and forthright about what one needs to do (unique to them) for overall health and wellbeing. If you care and love yourself enough to want to make some positive changes in your headspace, I encourage you to make an appointment. I can assure you, you won't regret it. Thank you again Hatch-Me and Thank you always Shani. Love, an exposed Gill.

The best therapists around. My entire family has felt heard and supported. Shani is the best therapist/guide we’ve ever had. Other therapist are full of themselves and the advice they give is right off of google. Shani is direct and the way he breaks concepts down is just brilliant. We found our therapist for life.
Shani's incredible! He's very patient and understanding.
Very helpful and is very patient when things aren't going as smooth as they should be. Been a long time coming and I'm glad I started.

When you’re in a big city, it’s hard to find services that are incredibly professional, custom tailored to your needs AND leave you feeling hopeful. Hatch-Me’s approach to their services are heart-centred and personable, with exceptionally prompt and clear communication. Cassidy is a gem. Walk in with some trepidation and walk out feeling so very loved and cared for. My first ever cuddle session healed layers of my heart, gave me space to speak my truth about past hurt, and was welcomed by a compassionate and empathetic soul who gave me the confidence to continue healing myself. I am deeply grateful, thank you.
