It’s possible to beat bulimia
The key to overcoming bulimia is to learn how to control two main areas of your thinking.
Firstly, learning to regain control of your imagination, rather than letting your imagination get ahead of you.
I’m sure you’ve experienced hopeful thoughts about recovery, only to have these thoughts and hopes dashed by anxious thoughts about what if I feel better, but then it gets worse again? What will happen if that happens? All those thoughts running through your mind are hard to compete with – let’s get them under control.
Secondly, we will develop skills to help you learn how to manage your expectations. Most people with bulimia are either experiencing it’s problematic thoughts and behaviours right now, or experiencing a brief respite, yet expecting it to rear it’s head at some point soon – there is very often a “fear of the fear” which comes along with the peaks and troughs bulimia creates.
We’ll neutralise that line of thinking, and give you a solid foundation to adopt more realistic thinking instead.
Why struggle quietly?
If you are struggling with bulimia, I genuinely believe CBT Therapy is a useful way to help you overcome your concerns. CBT isn’t about digging up the past and endlessly analysing it and looking intrusively for hidden meaning.
Whilst CBT will acknowledge root causes and what may be driving a problem, the work I do is focused on teaching you how to change right now.
The best approach for you
If My approach is as unique as the person I work with, so I’ll find the right way to work with you. Perhaps you would like to begin slowly? Just want to talk on a general level about your concerns and experiences around bulimia and get things off your chest – no problem.
Or perhaps you would prefer to really get stuck in straight away and learn to master some self mind control and coping techniques – no problem.
Or perhaps a mixture of the two? We’ll work out exactly how you will best respond to learning to change, and keep on working at it – I won’t give up on you.
Life can be different
Bulimia can be overcome. Whilst learning to change isn’t always simple and straightforward, it certainly can be done with time, effort and determination.
It can be a big step to admit that there is a problem beyond your control, and seeing someone for help may seem intimidating.
I would suggest that if you’ve made it to this webpage then you’ve probably made a decision on some level that enough is enough, and that it’s time to take action.
What do I do next?
Take action, you’ve struggled long enough. Don’t spend any more time hoping that it will just go away all by itself – it probably won’t.
The sooner you seek help, the sooner you will learn how to overcome it and future proof your results.
