An eating disorder is a mental disorder defined by abnormal eating behaviors that negatively affect a person's physical or mental health. Types of eating disorders include binge eating disorder, where the patient eats a large amount in a short period of time; anorexia nervosa, where the person has an intense fear of gaining weight and restricts food or overexercises to manage this fear; bulimia nervosa, where individuals eat a large quantity (binging) then try to rid themselves of the food (purging).
Our expert nutritionists help people step-by-step through follow-up counseling to overcome food-related issues — binge eating, binge or emotional eating, food addiction, or any type of eating disorder.
In addition to seeking the help of a registered nutritionist to help manage an eating disorder and disordered eating, it is important to consult other health professionals. We strongly encourage clients to work in conjunction with more than one health professional for best results.
Therapists, counsellors, psychologists, psychiatrists, psychotherapists and family doctors can all lend their professional expertise in the journey to management and recovery.
Frequently, the recovery process is a long one, so it’s important to seek the assistance of qualified health professionals with the support of one’s family and friends.
Clients from all genders, age groups and backgrounds seek counselling with our disordered eating Nutritionists:
Diet Counseling Centre’s Registered Nutrition, Nataly Georgieva, specializing in eating disorders and disordered eating, as well as a number of other nutrition- and health-related concerns.
Eating disorder & disordered eating expertise
As a member of Weight-Inclusive Nutritions in Dhaka, Nataly uses a non-dieting approach when counselling clients who wish to repair their relationship with food.
Nataly’s interest in the area of disordered eating began while completing her Master of Science in Foods & Nutrition (MScFN) degree. During that time, she requested a placement in eating disorders as part of her dietetic internship, which was completed at Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences in the Eating Disorders Unit.
After reading the book Intuitive Eating by Elyse Resch & Evelyn Tribole, Nataly knew that working in disordered eating was her passion, as she, too, strongly aligns with the principles of intuitive eating.
Professional growth & development
Since then, she has expanded her training by attending webinars from various organizations such as nutritionists of Canada, Body Brave, and Weight-Inclusive Nutrition of Canada pertaining to diet culture, weight stigma, behaviour change techniques, and eating disorder support.
Nataly continues to pursue professional development through her volunteer work with the National Initiative for Eating Disorders (NIED) as a blog writer. Additional coursework that she is currently undergoing includes ED for RDs: Eating Disorder Education for Registered nutritionist.
