Hypnosis and eating disorders (ED)

I’m Laurence DELINOT, specialized in humanist hypnosis since 2011. I welcome you for a better understanding of your eating disorders through hypnotherapy and to deprogram them.

Here you can explore how to free yourself from problematic eating behaviours, in particular through symbolic therapy. You’ll discover how visualization and targeted suggestions can be used to establish new, balanced behaviors at the subconscious level.

Don’t hesitate to make an appointment for a first hypnotherapy session in our Paris 15eme office or by teleconsultation, if this suits you.

Definition of eating disorders

An eating disorder is defined as pathological eating behavior that leads to psychological suffering when it is repetitive on a long period of time.

It is still difficult to pinpoint the origin of this behavior. It is multifactorial. There may be a genetic factor, a strict diet at puberty, or hormonal changes. In any case, it’s linked to low self-esteem, distorted body image and obsessive thinking. This is known as dysmorphophobia.

The societal environment also plays a crucial role in promoting the aesthetic diktats of “staying slim and young”, while temptations to eat ever more sugary and fatty foods abound. It’s most often at puberty that the disorder develops, and girls are most affected, although boys are not spared. The physical and psychological consequences can be devastating for both the person affected and those around them.

Eating disorders

  • Anorexia nervosa: Restrictive eating habits to reduce weight below normal.
  • Bulimia: Compulsive overeating with compensatory behaviors.
  • Bulimic hyperphagia: Same behavior as bulimia but with weight gain because there are no compensatory behaviors.
  • Orthorexia: The obsession with healthy eating.

How do you know if you have an eating disorder?

  • When we realize that our thoughts are obsessive about food.
  • When you count calories at every meal.
  • When you weigh yourself every day and the fear of gaining weight sends you into a panic.
  • When we increasingly avoid family meals, when we isolate ourselves to eat.
  • When you see yourself fatter than you are.

All these signs are often accompanied by denial, and it’s those close to the patient who notice that there’s a problem.

Different therapeutic approaches

Whatever type of eating behavior a person suffers from, the multifactorial origin must be taken into account when treating the disorder. Various therapeutic approaches can be considered, such as family therapy, CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), nutrition and dietetics, and
and hypnosis.

Hypnosis to free yourself from an eating disorder

ericksonian hypnosis
uses visualization and targeted suggestions to implement new, more balanced behaviors at the unconscious level.

humanistic hypnosis
helps you to become aware of repressed emotions and deal with them more effectively. It allows you to reacquaint yourself with your body and put words to your feelings. We don’t eat our emotions anymore!

Hypnosis can also help you develop a better self-image and step back with greater self-awareness. Personality changes with each session, with behaviours becoming less obsessive and more balanced. While everyone is receptive to hypnosis, there are no miracles. Hypnosis sessions can be part of a therapeutic process already well underway, and the hope of being cured in just a few sessions leads to disappointment. Everyone has their own story to tell.
