Hypnotherapy to help with food related issues
Problems with food can creep up over many years in some cases, they maybe circumstantial (related to work or family) or escalated childhood strategies.
In any case our relationship with food can – in the above cases – become distorted.
Too much or too little food creates fundamental problems – both physically through weight loss or gain and psychologically through thoughts and feelings of disgust, powerlessness or obsession.
In extreme cases the body can enter a state of malnutrition and sustain damage to organs, teeth and throat.
Often a distorted food relationship can seem a bit like somebody else has got the remote control. You may experience a slight dissociated sense of out-of-control.
These trance like moments – even if they are fleeting – demonstrate the power of unconscious to hi-jack good intentions and lead us into food difficulties. The most effective way to deal with these is to address the unconscious via hypnosis or EMDR.
