In other words, what goes on internally, even unconsciously, eventually becom...

Chaotic Eating and Food Choices??

Your internal voice will always present both sides of the argument, so if you are struggling with something and you stop and think, the chances are you will think something you have thought before. In terms of making choices that affect your health, if you love pizza and think often how good it tastes, then when trying to lose weight and make a different choice you stop and think about it before you decide, the thought you are most likely to have, is how delicious it is! That's clearly not going...

Hypnosis – Is it real and does it work

At last, it's official. Hypnotism really does work - and it has an impact on the brain which can be measured scientifically, according to one of America's leading psychiatrists. David Spiegel, from Stanford University, told the prestigious American Association for the Advancement of Science that he had scanned the brains of volunteers who were told they were looking at coloured objects when, in fact, they were black and white. A scan showing areas of the brain used to register colour highligh...

To stop feeling anxious, stressed or worried, you have to learn to just stop the thought

Every day it's estimated we have around of 50,000 thoughts, which is around 2083 per hour, or around 35 thoughts per minute. That's a lot of thinking!

But what's even more significant is that it...

Many adolescents and adults in treatment for an ED share that their symptoms serve a purpose, that of control. Control of what though? Their body? Their environment? Their lives? What I have experienced as an ED Therapist is that ED symptoms serve to control, numb, or even suppress the experience of uncomfortable emotion, whether it was fear, sadness, anger, shame, or all of the above.
