There are a lot of individuals suffering with one type or another of a group of conditions that don’t fit neatly into any classification and for which there is nobody present effective treatment.
Fairly little is known about Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) and the range of Eating Disorders such as Anorexia and Bulimia.” More is known about the eating conditions but still they continue as a real problem for many individuals”.
Some people discover assistance with drug treatments or with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) but these approaches do not work for everybody. I got into this occupation to help people, and so I have spent lots of long hours studying and searching out all that is understood about these conditions and their treatments.
I have been working with a young male with serious Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) and discovered the therapy to be assisting him to slowly remove away his sensations of being ‘unsightly’ and ‘revolting to look at’ and to form a brand-new image of himself. BDD – Body dysmorphic disorder – is a term utilized to explain a condition which involves feeling bad about some aspect of the body, the way it looks, smells or sounds, BDD generates, for instance, ‘my ears are too big’, my nose is too small’, my skin is too spotty’, I sweat too much’, ‘my voice sounds silly’ I just do not like the method I look, etc .

These ‘tensions’ generated by BDD can be really overstated and tend to trigger a large range of coping mechanisms and ‘security behaviours’, relying on the intensity of the sensations. Individuals with BDD will repeatedly check the method they look in the mirror or reflective surface areas such as store windows, use extreme makeup, or effort to mask their look, continuously asking for reassurance from family, pals and in some cases even lower recognized associates.
To Stop the BDD, 4 standard methods are used during treatment. First of all people who have actually struggled with body dysmorphic condition are taught to unwind and distress. This assists more than most people imagine.
They are carefully introduced to hypnosis and to the lots of therapeutic techniques that can be successfully used to help them. Second of all, a short look at the emotions and feelings causing this difficulty for an individual are softened in a symbolic and non-threatening way (a bit like a pre-wash cycle on a washering).
Third, people are taught ways to get out of those compulsive loops of thought which have actually triggered the feelings which have actually in turn generated the behaviours. This includes actually re-training the mindful mind ways to believe differently.
And the Subconscious mind ways to set up new, alternative, or much better thought patterns. we use a variety of hypnotherapeutic models to re-pattern the behaviours at a deeper unconscious level. 4th, individuals are assisted to forecast themselves and their new positive and confident self image into the future. The estimated variety of sessions for the treatment of BDD is 6 – 10, and theses sessions will be weekly for sessions 1 – 4. Further sessions will typically be arranged at two weekly periods.
The first session is 120 minutes and all following sessions are usually 60 – 90 minutes. Alan is really pleased to supply free consultations to anyone interested in discovering his work and how this form of Clinical Hypnosis may assist them.
They can then make an informed conversation after possibly examining back with their GP or expert. Any Clinical Hypnotherapists not proficient with these conditions can likewise contact Alan for an update about his methods. Just lately I’ve seen a boost in the number of individuals asking him to help them with one of these conditions.
