For Eating disorders - Anorexia & Bulimia Nervosa (& Body Dysmorphic Disorder, BDD).
Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa & BDD are successfully treated by Alice Pinion at the Maldon Hypnotherapy Clinic in Essex with Hypnoanalysis - a unique and highly effective form of Hypnotherapy.
Anorexia Nervosa is characterised by very low body weight, an obsessive fear of gaining weight and often distorted body image. The individual becomes obsessed with rigidly controlling their weight by calorie restriction and also often over exercising, which leads to severe loss of weight that's not accepted as such by the individual. Although it's seen as an adolescent female problem, men, women and boys are also affected. Most anorexics are experts in exercise, nutrition and calorie counting, convincing themselves that they are in control of their eating habits. However, the pathological fear of being "fat" or looking flabby leads to the anorexic themselves setting the standard they must keep to. Any variation from their excessively strict ritualistic diet habits or intake restriction leads to a massive peak in anxiety. Anorexia Nervosa is often accompanied by Bulimia (Bulimarexia - swinging between the two conditions) and Body Dysmorphic Disorder.
Bulimia Nervosa is when the individual regularly swings from binge eating through to compensatory purging behaviours - often defensive vomiting, fasting and/or the use of laxatives, enemas or diuretics - all due to their resultant feelings of guilt. The preoccupation with body weight and size make this a very similar disorder to Anorexia nervosa. Again over exercising is common.
Body Dysmorphic disorder (BDD) as another anxiety disorder often coming hand in hand with both Anorexia and Bulimia. Also known as body dysmorphic syndrome, the sufferer is excessively preoccupied by a perceived defect in their features. It can be a disorder in its own right but very often accompanies an eating disorder and usually also the debilitating and extreme fear of being judged that is social anxiety/social phobia. Isolation results as the person withdraws from others leading often also to depression.
Sleep eating & Night eating can also classed as eating disorders. See more on the Sleep Disorder page.
Most people with eating disorders have tried many different therapies (CBT, psychotherapy, counseling etc.) and pills to get rid of or try and control it with little or no success. Many Anorexics or bulimics have been led to believe that nothing can be done. However, through hypnoanalysis, eating disorders and their associated other issues can be resolved permanently and completely.
Anxiety disorders are almost always created in childhood, regardless of the onset of symptoms, possibly even years later. Bottled up emotions are projected onto an object, behaviour or situation, causing the phobia or obsession. The only way to permanently get rid of an obsession such as with eating disorders is to release the bottled up emotions driving them. As these emotions are locked down out of the conscious domain, many other talking therapies can't access them, if anything they provoke more obsessional behaviour. However, using Pure Hypnoanalysis those feelings are accessed and can be released and resolved for good.
I'm often asked (generally nervously by those with eating disorders!) if I'll hypnotise the person and "make them eat". This is nothing to do with your therapy at all, as eating disorders are not about not liking or wanting food in the same way as "normal" people, they are just a way of trying to feel in control of something. Once again, like with a phobia, or any other form of obsession it's simply an external expression of ones internal anxiety. Release the anxiety and you'll get over the need to control everything obsessionally. You won't have to fight it, you just won't have to do it.
If any of this sounds interesting and you'd like to free yourself from your eating disorders limiting effects once and for all, be rest assured that Hypnoanalysis offers an effective, refreshing and altogether very different approach by actually getting to the genuine source of the problem rather than just masking or managing symptoms.
Just imagine not carrying all that baggage around with you for the rest of your life - no matter how much you think you've gotten "used to it", or "deserve it", or "it's just the way I'm made"! Just think of how very wonderfully different life would be if you didn't have to go through it with the handbrake on all the time?
In the entirely understanding and non-judgemental atmosphere of Alice's highly professional consulting room you will work together with her using Pure Hypnoanalysis to allow those bottled up emotions which reside deep within your unconscious mind to naturally surface and be cathartically released - leaving you feeling lighter, better, free from all those symptoms.
Support, understanding and empathy are all integral when working with Alice and you'll soon see it is not like that of other talking therapies or counseling. Instead of just raking over the past and trying to intellectually come to terms with issues, Hypnosis and Free Association allow clean excision of the unconscious reasons for your eating related problem and then those pent up emotions finally resolve and are truly released. In doing so any directly and often many indirectly related symptoms disappear for good and you can just simply get on with happily living that life you've always wanted and be the person you've always wanted to be. No brainwashing involved, no more management of stresses and insecurities just to get by - quite simply you will have the choices as the same person you were but crucially without all the unconscious baggage holding you back in life.
