Eating disorders are not just about trying to be thin and fashionable. They may have any number of causes ranging from self-esteem issues to a feeling of lack of control over one’s life. There may be family or other relationship problems or even a fear of adult responsibilities.
Hypnotherapy is a complementary treatment which may assist in helping someone to better manage the issues which may be at the root of these problems. While hypnotherapy is not a substitute for professional counselling with eating disorder specialists, it may be a useful adjunct to other forms of counselling and therapy as part of a team approach to these issues.
