Hypnotherapy for Bulimia

Bulimia or Bulimia Nervosa is a form of eating disorder which involves cycles of overeating followed by periods of purging. Depending on the severity of the condition a person may have binges daily, weekly or at lesser intervals. Each binge is then following by a period of purging which does not just involve vomiting. In fact people with bulimia may also use laxatives or exercise excessively to try and lessen the impact of the calories from the food that they have eaten. When we use Hypnotherapy for Bulimia we work with you to reduce and then stop this binge/purge cycle as quickly as possible so that you feel more in control.

Symptoms of Bulimia

If you have Bulimia you may experience a number of the following:

  • Periods of Vomiting
  • Periods of Fasting
  • Feeling that your life lacks control.
  • Perfectionist tendencies
  • Use of Laxatives or Diuretics
  • Binge Eating followed by purging
  • Exercising to excess
  • Feel Anxious or depressed
  • Low self esteem
  • Fear of being overweight

At Balance Hypnotherapy we understand that when you have Bulimia it can feel as if you no longer have any control. Your life becomes ruled by thoughts of food. You try as hard as you can to eat small meals but because you eat too little you are unable to keep it up and give in to another binge. This makes you feel guilty and so the purging begins to try and remove the calories and the feelings of guilt. We are aware that Bulimia has links with Anorexia. If you have experienced Anorexia in the past it is not unusual for this to be replaced with Bulimia. Hypnotherapy for Bulimia helps you to understand the emotional reasons why you are feeling the need to binge or purge which will help you to stop the cycle.
