Help with Bulimia in Derby – Call 07582 865 265 Now Many people believe that eating disorders are of a recent origin, but (surprisingly perhaps) records show that patients with such problems have been described by Doctors since the 17th Century.
Whilst I work with clients with differing eating disorders, for the purposes of this article I have concentrated on help with Bulimia in Derby.
A good definition for help with Bulimia in Derby is :
“Repeated episodes of binge-eating (a lack of control over eating large amounts of food in a discrete time period), usually also to include recurring, inappropriate behaviour to then prevent weight gain by vomiting, use of laxatives, diuretics or similar medications, fasting or excessive exercise”. A minimum average of 2 episodes per week for 3 months or more and persistent self evaluation of body image (usually distorted) – many will however be within their ‘normal’ weight parameters.
People with this disorder can develop reckless behaviours, depression, inner anger, perfectionism, guilt / low self esteem, gastric / digestive problems, tooth enamel deterioration etc
Unfortunately there is no one single therapy that will help with Bulimia in Derby that
has been profound in treating eating disorders – which is precisely why I have become qualified in three areas : As a Hypnotherapist, Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and as a Stress Management Consultant. This will at least give the best chance of improvement. Over the years I have carried out in excess of 8,000 client sessions, a good percentage of which have been help with Bulimia in Derby. That stated, be aware that recovery requires major commitments from you to :
- Get into treatment
- Stay in treatment
- Make necessary lifestyle changes
- Resolve the underlying psychological and emotional issues that led to the bingeing and or purging in the first place.
Note, I am not a magician, I do not have a magic wand to wave over you, I cannot force you into therapy – you have to want it, and have the expectation that you will recover. Sometimes therapy for help with Bulimia in Derby can be tough, sometimes it may seem that you are not making progress, sometimes it may seem as though it’s too much hassle / cost / whatever. Unfortunately, you can even find yourself making excuses to drop out of therapy….that maybe you were not really that bad in the first place etc etc. The fact is, if our washing machine breaks down, our television packs up we repair them or replace them…but when we break down often we do nothing, and of course things end up then just getting worse. However, the good news is, you can do it. I’ll say it again…you CAN do it.
Please note I offer a free consultation, which enables me to build up an overall picture of you & discuss the best way forward. It also allows you to meet me, to ask any questions that you may have, and to feel comfortable with me and what I have to say. As you would expect, all therapy is in total confidence.
