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…)

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…)

Bulimia and change of mind

Bulimia and change of mind

Rosie had Bulimia since she could remember. This is why she was thrilled when she was free from it, finally! She loved the feeling of being in control, something she hasn’t experienced for a long time. You saved my live, she said to me in the last session, it feels so new to me, I want to run outside and just do things! she shouted. Her energy was palpable. I knew exactly what she was experiencing. This surge of energy always comes when we genuinely let go. She wasn’t used to it and it still felt like an exaggerated sense of vitality, something she could hardly contain. (more…)

What kind of OVEREATER are you?

What kind of OVEREATER are you?

Can you see yourself in any of these statements below?

Every time I get stressed I tend to eat chocolate, too much chocolate. I don’t seem to have much control over it, and often can’t stop until the whole block is gone. (You could replace ‘chocolate’ with any other food, if you like).

I overeat at night.I keep snacking after dinner, even though I am completely full, I keep going to the fridge or pantry and eating, eating, eating. It takes a lot of will power to stop, and often I cant stop until I go to bed, or until i feel sick. (more…)
