Help for Anorexia Carers

Take the pressure off with hypnosis

Are you looking after someone who is struggling with anorexia?

Do you find yourself feeling guilty, frustrated or even angry as you try to help?

‘Anorexia’ is a puzzling complex of behaviors that everyone finds difficult to make sense of. The person manifesting these behaviors may be as puzzled as anyone else, and at a loss to explain why they have this distorted relationship with food and eating. And being pressured to come up with an explanation may make things worse, as raised stress levels tend to aggravate compulsive behavior patterns.

The challenges of caring for an anorexic

While the anorexia sufferer strives through their strange eating (or rather, not eating) pattern to satisfy their need to have a sense of control over their lives, the people who care for them can find themselves floundering. How exactly do you help someone who has got caught up in this pattern? How do you deal with your own responses – guilt, frustration, anger, anxiety or whatever it may be?

Above all, if you look after someone with anorexia, you may find yourself haunted night and day by the question: “Will this person ever recover…?”

You may already have worked hard to find out as much as possible about anorexia and other eating disorders, and discovered what sort of things make matters worse, and what sort of things seem to help. But even when you have a fair understanding of what is going on, and how compulsive behaviors ‘work’, it can still be very hard to know what to do for yourself as a carer in this situation.

We aim to remedy this.
