Hypnotherapy for Eating Disorders

Learn to Feel Relaxed and Comfortable Around Food With Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy for Eating Disorders in CheltenhamEating disorders are a group of conditions, characterised by abnormal eating habits that may involve either insufficient or excessive food intake to the detriment of the individual’s physical and emotional health.

Eating disorders can affect anyone and are extremely common, affecting millions of people each year. The main characteristic of an eating disorder is the individual’s obsession with their weight. These obsessive thoughts can lead to severe consequences in both their health and their actions.

The most common include binge eating, bulimia nervosa and anorexia nervosa. These affect both males and females, although females outnumber the males affected quite considerably. The causes are complex and poorly understood.

In addition, research indicates that exposure to images of thin, young, air-brushed female bodies is linked to depression, loss of self-esteem and the development of unhealthy eating habits in women and girls.

How Hypnotherapy Can Help Put You Back in Control

Hypnotherapy works primarily at reducing the anxiety and stress that is created around food and eating. By using relaxation techniques and visualisation we are able to address the obsessional nature of the condition and identify small but achievable steps to get a more balanced relationship around food and weight management.

By understanding the thinking and behavior around binge-eating/anorexia and the associated obsessive thoughts and anxiety, you can start to let go of the feelings of guilt and deprivation and begin to focus on life beyond the thoughts of food or eating. An increased sense of calm and a break from the constant barrage of food related thoughts can increase self-belief, confidence and provide the possibility of change.

We help break the pattern of negative emotions around food, eating and body image and more positive habits can be learnt. Hypnotherapy helps to improve self-confidence and self-image so that the individuals are able to view themselves differently.

Overall, hypnotherapy is a very positive and relaxing experience that will help you gain a better way to cope with life and move forward safely.

Cheltenham Hypnotherapy for Eating Disorders

Like any disorder, the longer an individual suffers with it, the worse it usually becomes. Those with eating disorders are likely to hide their problem from others and often find it difficult to recognise that they have a problem that requires help. The first step is therefore to recognise the problem and speak to your GP.

I am passionate about helping people with eating disorders. In my opinion it doesn’t matter what ‘label’ your eating problem carries – or even if it has no ‘label’ at all.The fact is, if you feel you can’t stop eating and wonder “how can I stop binge eating?” or, if you are worried that you have gone too far and cant’ start eating, then, for you, it’s a problem – whatever your weight or size.

What is important is how it affects you personally; and to develop ways you can improve your relationship with food and yourself.
