Help with anorexia nervosa.
Going over the past in an attempt to understand how the anorexia began is something we dont do. Neither do we spend time searching for deep hidden meanings. This seems to us to be a very long-winded, and often fruitless approach.
By contrast, our approach is almost directly opposite to many counsellors and psychotherapists. We work directly with the anorexia patterns literally teaching you how to think differently. We do our best to help you to build flexibility and choice into your thoughts, feelings and behaviour’s in the present.
Hypnotherapy is also used to associate resources from times in your life when you have felt confident, relaxed and resourceful even if you haven’t felt these things for a while, to those times when you would have engaged in anorexia behaviour.
We find that on average we can often help people with up to ten hours of NLP and hypnotherapy. Sometimes it is faster. Occasionally people get do better quickly. This is the exception though, not the rule. It is our job to help you to change the cycles of behaviour. We do our very best to help you to feel better about yourself as you are. We work to help you to move away from anorexia, towards a healthier and happier way of living.
What we do is very much to be seen as working in conjunction with conventional medicine and therapy. Just because we don’t tend to work a in a counselling kind of way does not mean it isn’t useful for people.
Help with anorexia nervosa. Break the old patterns for good
Anorexia has much in common with bulimia. It manifests itself in patterns of behaviour created by the sufferer specifically to meet their own expectations of their self-image. These patterns are self-perpetuating, and need to be broken in order to stop anorexia.
In order to diagnose anorexia, three things must be happening:
- The sufferer must be significantly underweight
- This must be the result of their own efforts
- The sufferer must be extremely concerned about their weight and / or shape, but rather than worrying about being underweight, they will usually be terrified of gaining weight and becoming fat
Anorexia is most common in teenage girls and young women. But men also suffer.
Anyone suffering with anorexia will typically avoid foods they believe to be fattening, whether or not this belief is accurate. They may alternate between fasting and binging – although an anorexic binge is often subjective entirely to the sufferer. For example, they may eat two or three biscuits and consider themselves to have massively overeaten.
These extremes of anorexic behaviour are normally preceded by a period of distress or particularly low self-esteem. They are usually followed by feelings of shame and guilt, leading to still lower self-esteem, and thus the circle of self-destructive behaviour continues.
Hypnotherapy and NLP can be used successfully to help you to get you out of the self-destructive patterns of Anorexia Nervosa. Please do not hesitate to call us.
