Eating Disorders

Have you ever wondered why you like the food you do and not the food you do'nt? Well, many of our choices and beliefs about food come from our child hood and that includes taste. 

 

Whether through associations to traumatic or emotional events or belief systems we can become picky eaters. Anxiety and stress levels play their part too as disorders are also associated to a form of OCD.

Food disorders like anorexia Nervosa, bulimia and binge/over eating are linked to anxiety, stress and depression. Anxiety is lowered by the perception of control , either vomiting or controlling intake, only to build up again after time.

 

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy helps to lower stress and anxiety levels and introduce alternate programming and decision making process to the subconscious mind  that allow us to make healthier and better choices.

 

The great thing is that we do not look back at the cause of the issue and the client remains in control by determining the pace of improvement.
