Binge Eating Disorders Food Addiction
EMDR WEIGHT LOSS (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)EMDR, involves alternating sensory simulation of the clinician's fingers, while the client is instructed to attend to while focusing their mind on what ever thought or memory is creating distress for them. This is then repeated while the client holds in mind a set of positive thoughts that they are trying to put in place. This process can also be achieved with tapping, and the use of light movements.
- EMDR is an integrative approach used to treat trauma and recovery from childhood, addictions, fears, and relationship abuse. Trauma and/or abuse can impact how we feel about ourselves and can leave us feeling:
- unworthy and undesirable
- unlovable and not wanted
- damaged and broken
- not enough and never measures up
- like a failure and unsuccessful
- lost and alone
- guilty for no know reason undesirable like everything is all our fault A person that has been a victim in an abusive relationship may have similar negative beliefs.
- This can have a negative impact on success, relationships, parenting, communication, career, choices, and self-esteem. it can also create other distressing psychological symptoms.
- Release, let go, and make room for more creativity, joy, happiness, and a brighter future.
