Episode 28 - DISORDERED EATING CULTURE with Psychotherapist EMDR Practitioner Angela Taylor

Are you struggling with Disordered Eating? Psychotherapist EMDR Practitioner Angela Taylor shares the signs, triggers, and steps to recovery of disordered eating.

Are you hyper aware of your body’s imperfections? Are you or a loved one struggling with disordered eating? You are not alone! It affects so many of us. In our Western culture we are obsessed with weight and body- almost all of us are too obsessed of how our body looks and how it’s functioning or not functioning.  Psychotherapist EMDR Practitioner Angela Taylor joins Jill de Jong and explains that shame and grief are the triggers and birth ground of disordered eating. She also describes how to recognize the signs, how to best address and support others suffering from it, and reveals the best ingredients for the road to recovery.  It’s about being more, not less. It’s about feeling more, not less. It’s about feeling safe to be ALL of you.
