Why choose BACA?
A warm and welcoming team
At the BACA Clinic, we know that it takes a lot of courage to break the silence, overcome the isolation and ask for help.
Our team of professionals will support you from the very first contact to help you get through the entire range of emotions that accompanies the delicate process required to come to terms with an eating disorder (ED).
• Shame and sense of failure
• Discouragement and loss of hope
• Fear of failing or being beyond help, etc.
You will be welcomed with gentleness, openness and tolerance, in a comforting and peaceful environment, which promotes confidence.
Experience is what sets us apart
For over 15 years, we have had the privilege of welcoming thousands of people who share with us their inner world, their intimate thoughts and feelings.
Although training is of fundamental importance to us, our team stands out by the number of actual hours spent with people with EDs. We have developed our expertise by listening to your confidences and being responsive to your emotions, in order to understand the extent of the suffering and the complexity of the eating disorder.
In a psychotherapeutic context, several factors can influence the nature of the recommended follow-up:
• The individual’s resources
• The severity of the symptoms
• The state of physical health
• The level of motivation
• The type of personality, etc.
The BACA Clinic offers you different frameworks for intervention in order to meet the needs of each individual: outpatient, intensive, individual, group, multidisciplinary services, etc. Our experience enables us to quickly assess your needs and to propose the most appropriate intervention program for your particular situation.
The BACA Clinic was founded in 2001 by Tania Lemoine, a graduate of the University of Columbia, New York, and a psychotherapist specializing in the treatment of eating disorders. All BACA professionals have specialized training in the treatment of EDs. In addition, the clinic provides training and monitoring of several mental health professionals, in the form of individual supervisions, ongoing training and presentations at various conferences.
To stay abreast of the latest developments in our profession and to encourage various social agencies in the field of eating disorders, our clinic is a member of several organizations in Quebec, Canada and on the international scene. These organizations are recognized for their research, services and efforts in the prevention of this cause we all hold close to our hearts:
