Not every person with binge eating disorder will have exactly the same reasons for their problem but here are some of the most common issues:
Perfectionism – A common trait among binge eaters is the need for perfectionism. This will not just be confined to their looks but will also be present in situations such as in their work and their relationships. Usually the standards that they set themselves are extremely high and almost impossible to meet leading to negative emotions which can create the problem eating. The binge behaviour is either a way of comforting themselves for the problem or dissociating them from the negative emotions.
Anxiety – Moments of anxiety or high stress tend to increase the need to binge. So exams, relationship problems, stress in the workplace can all heighten the issue. Hypnosis is very helpful in these circumstances in reducing your stress levels so you can regain control of the problem.
Other Food Disorders – If you have suffered from previous eating disorders then there is a greater chance that you may have binge eating disorder.
Low Self Esteem – People who lack confidence or who have low self esteem may also be more likely to binge eat. Once again the need to binge is a way of blocking out negative feelings.
It is worth noting that binge eating disorder is not the same as bulimia where a person may purge following their overeating.
Binge Eating Therapy Nottingham
At our clinics in Nottinghamshire we work with our clients to help them address the underlying causes of the problem. This is done as part of our five session binge eating program that we conduct over a period of two months. In your first session we take an assessment so that we can understand the extent of the problem and also take note of any other problems which need to be considered such as anxiety or depression. During your first session you will be introduced to hypnosis techniques to assist you to relax which can help to reduce any stress. Following this initial session our clients are given a binge eating hypnosis download to listen to between their sessions.*
In the following sessions we then start a process called analytical hypnosis which put simply means asking you questions whilst you are in hypnosis. Our Hypnotherapy for Binge Eating Nottingham is designed to help you mind to relax sufficiently so that unhelpful unconscious thoughts and feelings can be found and addressed. Once we have an awareness of the root cause of the problem it becomes easier to directly target your issues.*
Self Hypnosis Binge Eating
All our clients will receive a self hypnosis Binge Eating audio to assist them between their sessions. This audio download can also be purchased in our online store today.
