Eating Disorders

What exactly are ‘eating disorders’?

Well, a generic description is often given as "any of a range of psychological disorders characterized by abnormal or disturbed eating habits" but as you can imagine this is so broad as to include almost everything 'unusual' involving the consumption of food or drink.

Eating Disorders are a serious condition and it is imperative that you consult your GP before deciding on any course of therapy.

A person with an eating disorder may focus obsessively on an aspect (or aspects) of their self image e.g. their weight or their shape, which results in them 'managing' the problem through the way that food is consumed.

These are, generally, unhealthy choices that lead to health damage.

It is of no surprise to find that more and more people are suffering from eating disorders. Every single day of your life you are presented with information, from a huge variety of sources, that challenge your self image:

1.       A multi-billion dollar weight loss industry is determined to keep you on the end of their yo-yo, releasing new and improved diets or exercise approaches as often as some people eat a cooked meal;

2.       An ever-expanding image obsessed social media pushing arguably unrealistic images of beauty, particularly amongst the most vulnerable young people;

3.       A TV and Newspaper media obsession with the growing impact of obesity (which now affects OVER 50% of the UK population);

4.       An increasingly 'processed' food source, coupled with aggressive psychological marketing techniques, resulting in decreased nutritional intake in food; and

5.       A society that all evidence suggests is Ageist, Sexist, Racist, and 'Sizeist' at it's core. Organisations are now discriminating against overweight people as part of their recruitment and interview processes, believing that such persons are not as motivated or energised as their slimmer colleagues;

What causes eating disorders?

In the paragraphs above, some of the obvious influences are discussed. These are influences only, the underlying CAUSES of eating disorders are psychological issues surrounding how we think about ourselves, including (but not limited to) the following:

How common are eating disorders?

Anorexia seems to be highlighted more in the media than the statistics would suggest is reasonable. Less than half a percent of the female population suffer, and ten times fewer males.

Bulimia is suffered by perhaps two to two and a half percent of the female population, males almost never.

The most common disorder is that of Compulsive Eating, which affects both men and women equally and tends to occur during their Thirties.

Therapy for eating disorders?

We would strongly suggest that you speak to your GP before undertaking any treatments with us as, if left untreated, these disorders can ultimately be life threatening.

Having consulted with us, it is possible that we could offer a number of potential therapy solutions:

1.       Suggestion Therapy can be used to strengthen self image, boost self confidence, and raise self esteem. This can help to ease the pressure that outside influences can bring to bear on your thought processes, and thus help control the problem.

2.     Analytical Hypnotherapy can be used to 'interrogate' the subconscious, drilling down to discover the root cause of the problematic thought processes, then Suggestion Therapy can be used to alter these processes;

3.       Cognitive Processing & Integration Therapy can, as above, offer a psychotherapeutic solution to re-process experiences that can contribute to behavioural patterns in later life. This is particularly relevant if you have experienced any kind of earlier emotional trauma contributing to your problem as the techniques of CPI can help you to re-process these events in a more objective context.

What forms can ‘eating disorders’ take?

With all these pressures being applied, it is no wonder that a person questions their own self image. The most commonly treated forms of eating disorder are:

Bulimia:-  Characterised by attempts to control weight by "stuffing" or "bingeing" on food followed by a second phase of "purging", deliberately making oneself sick in order to counteract the overeating. A very common feature is that this binge-purge cycle is usually kept very secret and sufferers feel very guilty about what they do.

Compulsive Eaters:-   A person continues to eat food even when feeling full. Most compulsive eaters are very overweight and use food as a way to alleviate or relieve "emotional" problems such as depression, stress or anxiety.

Anorexia:-     Characterised by the sufferer continuing to believe that they are "fat" or "overweight" even when they are terribly underweight. This "cognitive distortion" leads to behaviour where only tiny amounts of food are eaten with the body suffering very obvious malnutrition.

 “… you’ve made me a man again! I can’t thank you enough, and neither can Mrs ******! I wasn’t able to perform [sexually], and have had it like that for years. Going back and finding out why this happened meant that I could deal with it. My only issue is that the sessions aren’t long enough. I felt so good that I didn’t want to come out [of hypnosis]”
