One of our specialisms at our clinic in Binge Eating Hypnotherapy London. We work with many clients each week to help them stop their binge eating and to resolve the deep underlying reasons why they may have an issue. Often we find that people with Binge Eating may have suffered from another eating disorder in the past but this is no barrier to resolving this problem.
Generally Binge Eating is caused by one or more of the following:
Anxiety and Stress – When we are anxious we feel on edge and we are more out of control. It is not a nice feeling and so many people will use food to distract themselves from the horrible feelings. When the anxious feelings begin the food helps to dissociate people from the feelings if only for a short time. Of course when the binge ends feelings of guilt creep in and that causes anxiety levels to rise again fueling the binge eating cycle. Binge Eating Hypnotherapy London works with you to firstly reduce any anxiety and stress so you feel more in control.
Perfectionism – A person who feels the need to binge may have issues from childhood that make them believe they have to be perfect. In other words they need to achieve the best grades, work the hardest and look thin and toned. Of course the reality is that perfectionism does not really exist. The more they try to cut down their food portions the harder is becomes to eat so little forcing the need to binge. The more a binge eater doesn’t get the best marks or feedback the worse they feel also triggering the need to binge eat. Hypnosis for binge eating helps to get to the root cause of your particular issues.
Low Self Esteem – When you do not feel as good as everyone else then you end up comparing yourself to others and thinking of yourself in a negative light. The more those negative feelings are within you the more there is a need to comfort yourself to make things seem better. Food is often used as the method of comfort but in such large quantities that it constitutes a binge. We work with you to boost your self esteem and to help you change your negative thoughts into positive ones so that you start to feel better about yourself.
