Growth Hypnosis uses hypnotherapy techniques to help treat eating disorders
Does hypnosis work for eating disorders?
Absolutely! You may be feeling hopeless as you've tried nearly everything and nothing seems to work. At least that's usually where clients are at by the time they discover Growth Hypnosis. And it's understandable, eating disorders including bulimia and anorexia are generally regarded as particularly difficult to treat. This does not have to be the case. CBT offers some of the most successful strategies for coping with eating disorders, however it's my experiences that a CBT approach can be much more effective and work far more quickly when applied in tandem with hypnosis.
Growth Hypnosis seeks to disrupt the habit cycle that maintains eating disorders
At Growth Hypnosis we look to disrupt the eating disorder 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 bulimia client had 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.
