Hypnotherapy for Eating Disorders
Eating disorders are on the rise due to the accessibility of online ‘beauty’ via smartphones and any number of social media apps. This is in addition to the environmental causes such as bullying, abuse, abandonment and ‘gaslighting’ relationships.
Often eating disorders have their roots in developmental and teenage learning, so up to 20yrs old. Anyone can develop an eating disorder.
Although mainstream interventions focus on the food and weight, it is the feeling that drives the restricting or binging and that is what we focus on.
Hypnotherapy for Anorexia
The anorexic voice is very powerful and manipulative. It seeks to seclude and override the sufferers innate survival processes to the point of hospitalization and starvation. Mainstream treatment is focused on weighing twice a week but this is one of the worst things to do as it makes the anorexic voice stronger and confirms failure to someone already low on self-esteem. An anorexic will know how to ‘cheat’ the system to fool the scales. I hear so many stories from my clients of how to beat the system.
Hypnotherapy for anorexia can help by targeting the causing feelings that created the problem and then implement solutions and internal resources to aid the road to recovery. It is essential you have a support network outside of our sessions.
Hypnotherapy for Bulimia Nervosa
Bulimia is characterized by the binge / purge cycle and certainly has strong emotional roots. Hypnotherapy can help discover and positively process the roots, be it sadness, grief, anger, loneliness or others. Once the root emotions are dealt with then self-esteem is worked on to ensure resilience in the future.
We will help you break the destructive cycle of eating disorders so you can feel the freedom of being you and live your life to the fullest!
