Growth Hypnosis provides hypnotherapy techniques for bulimia sufferers
Hypnotherapy specialist in bulimia
I started specialising in bulimia fairly early on in my career as a clinical hypnotherapist. Initially tackling this condition was quite daunting. Therapists in general tend not to be optimistic about the prospects for success, they talk in terms of management rather than recovery. And clients often come to me feeling hopeless, there is sense they have tried everything and nothing is going to work. However, I experimented, combing CBT strategies with hypnotherapy techniques and was surprised by the level of success I quickly achieved. I knew that CBT offers some of the most successful strategies for coping with eating disorders, however many clients came to me having failed with CBT and I came to understand that it could fall down where the client is not suitably optimistic and motivated to follow the program. I found I could easily bridge this gap using hypnosis combining both disciplines to impressive effect, and often to the great surprise of the client and their GP.
Growth Hypnosis seeks to disrupt the habit cycle that maintains bulimia
At Growth Hypnosis we look to disrupt bulimia and its maintaining patterns on many fronts. We use multiple CBT and hypnotherapy techniques to help you attain a more healthy relationship to food and a more objective self image, while at the same time, breaking the negative habit cycles and replacing them with more positive substitutes.
Once you're suitably committed to change, success can happen very quickly. Once a client sees the first signs of change and realises that it really is possible, it's amazing how quickly their motivation and commitment snowballs and their outlook for life dramatically transforms. After 6 years of living with the condition, one recent client stopped binging and purging altogether by her third* session. To put that into context, using CBT techniques alone, practitioners would generally expect to put in about 20 sessions, so hypnosis has the potential to really speed things up and break the deadlock.
*Results and duration of treatment vary by client.
