People often assume that hypnosis is used for weight issues when someone has too much weight.
Sometimes it can be helpful for those who are too thin because of eating disorders.
The National Institute of Mental Health‘s website states that “There is a commonly held view that eating disorders are a lifestyle choice”. But sometimes it isn’t.
Everything that we have experienced since the day we were born has influenced our behaviours, including things that are said to us.
Take Jane Fonda, for example.
She struggled for 25 years with an eating disorder.
It all started when she became a teen and her father’s hangups about how women were “supposed to look” were transferred to her. He’d have his current wife speak with her about her shape and size. And this led to her battles with bulimia and anorexia.
She was made to feel that she wouldn’t be loved if she didn’t look “perfect”.
Hypnosis can help with eating issues
Hypnosis can help a teenager or adult with getting over this issue so that she can have a healthy life.
If this is something that resonates with you, consider booking a hypnosis consultation to discuss how we can work together.
