Bulimia. Why do you do it?

Bulimia. Why do you do it?

How many time have you googled ‘bulimia’. Or ‘how to stop’, or ‘what it bulimia’?. You wanted clarity but instead, you have been feeling more and more confused in your search for the answers.

Many of the sites tend to talk about bulimia in terms of behaviours associated with it. It makes us believe that the behaviours are the problem. And of course they are, because they can make you really unwell. But at the same time, they aren’t the problem and therefore should not be the focus of your recovery. (more…)

Motivated to do… what?

Motivated to do… what?

When we talk about motivation, the usual view is that we are either motivated or not motivated.

It feels like that, especially when procrastination kicks in big time. And we simply feel too lazy, too distracted or too unwilling to do whatever it is we ‘should be doing’.

But i would like you to consider a different view. A view that we are always motivated. The question is: motivated to do what? (more…)

Do You Want To know Your Own Power?

Do You Want To know Your Own Power?

There are two types of clients that comes to see me. Those who are prepared to take control over their lives and want me to guide them to this state of ‘mastery’ and those who want a ‘magic pill’ that would take the problem away and want me to do all the magic. Well, I am a bit unfair, we all want some magic (myself included) and support and help. But nothing slows the process of overcoming eating problems or anxiety as much as this attitude of ‘give me the goods and don’t ask for me to do a thing’. (more…)

You can’t control your reactions? Here is why. Part 2

You can’t control your reactions? Here is why. Part 2

I hope you understand more about the importance of moods and emotions in the way you react to things. In fact they are important in all decision making processes. They influence how you see interactions, situations and events in your life and how you see others. And it influences how you react to what people say to you.

And of course you know that. You know that when you are in a bad mood, or disappointed with yourself in some ways, no matter how nice people are (and no matter how hard your partner tries to make you feel loved), you just don’t feel it anyway. It feels that they must be lying or trying too hard, and even if they are completely genuine in their affection, you just don’t trust it. (more…)

You can’t control your reactions? Here is why. Part 1

Have you ever tried to understand – or to change – your emotional responses to situations or to behaviours of others, only to feel more confused than ever. Have you tried to feel better about your body, your weight, your friends, your family, your work and yet couldn’t change any of that? Have you tried to be more positive only to end up feeling even more frustrated with yourself? (more…)

How to stop overeating – exercise

How to stop overeating – exercise

This is the exercise I promised in my previous post here.

Before I start a word of waning: it may seem strange to you because I am going to ask you to do something that feels counter intuitive at first. But after a short while you will discover how truly powerful this exercise is. After all, you have been doing what  seemed right for a while now: looking for answers in diets and food sensitivities, stressing, beating up on yourself, and nothing changed. This exercise is like nothing else you tried and it will create magical changes in your days and in your life and – if yous stick to it for a while – it has a potential of changing your life completely.

Quick Fix Solutions: Do They Work?

Quick Fix Solutions: Do They Work?

We all hope for quick fix answers. Because we want things to change. And it feels that life could be so good, if the problem simply disappeared today. We don’t have time to wait to move on and we don’t want to. This is why so many people go to hypnosis and expect a single session to take all the ‘problems’ away. And because of the demand, some practitioners incite clients with a promise of miracles they simply can’t deliver. (more…)
