Eating Disorders

As a professional Hypnotherapist and Counsellor in Liverpool, I offer an integrative approach to therapy – including Hypnotherapy, Counselling and CBT – to help clients overcome their food related problems.

Anorexia nervosa and bulimia are debilitating illnesses affecting both men and women. People who suffer the symptoms of anorexia and bulimia have underlying sub-conscious conflicts with low self esteem and a distorted body self-image.

Anorexia nervosa and bulimia can have serious effects on a person’s emotional and physical health and can be associated with depression, low self-esteem and self-harm.

People who suffer the symptoms of anorexia often find themselves avoiding social situations, they usually feel people may be judging them because of their low body weight.

People suffering from anorexia or bulimia should always seek the advice of their GP.

Typical Symptoms of Anorexia nervosa

  • Refusal to maintain a normal body mass
  • Rapid weight loss leading to less than 85% of expected weight
  • Dieting with no desire to gain weight or becoming fat despite being underweight
  • Depression
  • Vomiting
  • Abdominal pains
  • Low blood pressure
  • Fatigue
  • Feeling low
  • Hair loss

Bulimia Nervosa

This is a binge and purge disorder and like Anorexia can serious effects on a person’s emotional and physical health.

Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy can help people resolve the symptoms of anorexia and bulimia.

Therapy sessions are tailored for your individual needs, to facilitate flexibility and choice into your thoughts, feelings and behaviour so that you can build a better healthy relationship with food in the future. You can access and associate your strengths and resources, for example when you have felt confident and relaxed to those times when you would have engaged in binge-eating or purging behaviour.
