Vancouver, British Columbia therapist: Nina Hopmeier, licensed professional counselor

Nina Hopmeier

Licensed Professional Counsellor, Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC)
Weight gain can result in people feeling judged, insecure, and helpless in their ability to feel comfortable in their own skin. Weight gain is often associated with emotional distress and a perceived inability to manage hardships in a constructive and healthy way. The therapy process regarding obesity and weight gain will largely depend on the unique situation of the client. We will explore the history of your weight gain struggles; when it began and what was going on for you at the time. We will also explore the purpose of turning toward food. Food may have helped you to temporarily manage difficult emotions. Understanding the purpose and function of turning toward food is a fundamental part of the therapy process, as clients learn to view their difficulty through a compassionate and nonjudgmental lens. By gaining insight into the meaning that you attach to food we will collaboratively establish a treatment plan that aligns with your unique wants and needs.

Toronto, Ontario therapist: Philip Starkman, registered psychotherapist

Philip Starkman

Registered Psychotherapist, MSW, RSW
In my approach to supporting clients dealing with obesity, I blend a compassionate understanding of the emotional and psychological dimensions of weight with practical strategies for change. By integrating holistic methods such as Mindfulness, the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Role-Playing, I create a personalized plan that addresses both the mind and body. This tailored approach helps clients uncover underlying emotional triggers, improve self-esteem, and develop healthier coping mechanisms. Through our work together, we explore lifestyle changes that support physical health, while also addressing the psychological factors that contribute to obesity. My goal is to empower clients to make sustainable changes, fostering a positive relationship with food and exercise, and ultimately, achieving a balanced and healthy life. For individuals seeking support in their journey toward weight management and overall wellness, I am committed to providing a nurturing and supportive environment to explore, grow, and succeed.

Calgary, Alberta therapist: Freedom & Hope Counselling and Therapeutic Services, licensed professional counselor

Freedom & Hope Counselling and Therapeutic Services

Licensed Professional Counsellor, RPC #3875, CT #2438, LSCC
This topic is inherently distressing for many. Once comfort and connection are established, attention shifts towards addressing, discussing, and hopefully resolving the root causes of trauma and pain below it. The primary concerns revolve around physical health and overall well-being, not weight perception.
