You don’t have to spend another day guessing how recovery works, what to do, or be held back from forging ahead with recovery while providers around you don’t specialize in eating disorders or have a waitlist.

We know parents and caregivers can play a crucial role in eating disorder recovery. However, they often tell us that they don’t know where to begin, how to stabilize or keep going in the right direction. 

This doesn't have to be you.

Set yourself and your system up for success with focused action and intentional plan.

During an active eating disorder individuals, especially teens and their actions can be unrecognizable.

Eating behaviors taking over your child, pushing them into high levels of anxiety, resistance, anger and rage, obstructing healing and recovery.

The more malnourished their brain, the more extreme behaviors come forward. It can be hard to decipher what is what, how to manage it and comprehend “why can’t they just eat or….”.

Things in eating disorder recovery don’t always make intuitive sense but you can take control, and move forward empowered with the right knowledge, clarity, confidence and understanding of what works and what doesn’t work.

Eating disorders can be vicious, even deadly, and they are impossible to fight without up to date knowledge and tools supported by research as well as lived experiences of thousands and thousands of families.

TECP is here to help you get a strong footing and tools that will serve as YOUR ANCHOR while you embark on and continue the recovery journey.

Let's get started!

I am Ilona Phillips

I have spent the last couple of decades working with individuals and families struggling with eating disorders. I understand how stormy the recovery journey can be. I understand the ups and downs, overwhelm, pain and struggle that come with it. I have also had the privilege of seeing hundreds of individuals recover and find their way back to a deeply rich and satisfying life.

I also know just how much the eating disorder recovery journey is impacted by various factors including length and severity of symptoms as well as an effective plan and systems in place.

I am also aware that that finding effective treatment can seem impossible. The number of specialized and effective providers, who truly know eating disorders is limited and many have waiting lists. Trust me, I know. This has always frustrated me for my clients and the need is higher than ever.

However, you do not have to sit on the sidelines while that all is happening. Ready at your fingertips and without delay or waitlist, full of
knowledge and strategies, The Empowered Carer Program is here to support you in building crucial stepping stones and finding clarity and focus in the midst of it all.

This course is for you, the parent and carer

who is committed to helping and walking beside their child battling an eating disorder, the parent and carer who is ready to take action.

As a society we don’t teach about eating disorders in schools, certainly not in depth, and even some well intentioned medical providers are often unprepared to advise families effectively and based in current research. Providers who are equipped to help effectively often have a waitlist, especially at this time of unprecedented demand for mental health services.

Of course you wonder how to tackle an eating disorder, what’s next, how to help your child effectively, and without delay since day counts in eating disorder recovery. Eating disorders are complex and can be fatal. You already know you have to show up, and lack of confidence or direction don't have to stop you from taking action.

You don't have to keep feeling uncertain of where to start. You don't have to be finding yourself overwhelmed, disoriented, unsure of what to do next, feeling fearful, distressed, in shock or exhausted.

I have helped hundreds of individuals and families to tackle eating disorders.

Jump in, get your building blocks ready and start taking control back today.

Here to help you feel more confident and equipped in the healing process of your child.

I see you! This is not easy. I put this course together to help you go from feeling lost, uncertain and overwhelmed to feeling empowered and prepared to help your child and yourself navigate eating disorder recovery effectively. There is no room for guessing or winging it with eating disorders. They are ruthless. You give an inch and they take a mile.

The good news is that they don’t have to dominate your life forever.

Get your recovery roadmap in place and feel confident about your direction.
