Our expert says:
I am most relieved for your sake that you are coming to grips with your bulimia which is a most destructive condition. If you are on the way to recovery then why are you going for hypnosis? I think you still have the underlying mindset of a bulimic - you are scared of food, you only want to eat very-low-energy foods, you are scared of gaining weight and of relapsing - so I would recommend that you do get some professional help. If the hypnosis will be done by a clinical psychologist who will also help you to sort out your underlying psychological problems then I think it is a good idea, but don't go for hypnosis if the person is not a qualified clinical psychologist. You may also benefit from seeing a clinical dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area), to help you with a balanced diet that will not cause weight gain and to learn how to eat normally again.
Wishing you all the best
