Case Study: Handling Emotions
Beat Bulimia and Eating Disorders case study regards handling emotions by expert Debbie Williams. Learn how I help a client process her emotions, to have better ways to respond to difficult situations at home.
Overcoming Bulimia Discloses Raw Emotions
Did you know overcoming bulimia often unearths underlying raw emotions? You see, overcoming bulimia means that the bulimic now becomes more aware of their emotions, whereas before the bulimia helped mask the emotion.
As a bulimic gets better they have to find better ways of handling their emotions. With NLP you can teach strategies of how to process emotions and detach from them, by learning what their message is.
Bulimia Understanding Thoughts
With Bulimia and recovering fully from it, it is useful to understand your thoughts and to ‘up date’ the software, like you would do for a computer, particularly if the thoughts the bulimia sufferer has are no longer useful.
Many times there are gaps in the bulimics way of thinking, which need strategies to replace the benefits that bulimia gave them, otherwise when the going gets tough bulimia could return.
Case Study – Handling Emotions
Bulimia expert Debbie Williams replies to Miss D’s email, Debbie has insight already to some of the family issues and relationships that Miss D refers to, and points out similar situations where Debbie has used NLP to help Miss D process thoughts and grow to handle unsupportive family members.
Miss D: I can’t stop crying, I feel so low and things are a bit tricky at home – mum has damaged a tendon in her ankle and is in agony most of the day…she is on painkillers.. She could be off work for a while and I am trying to help her but she is being negative, crying etc I told her to stop it!
Debbie: YES she isn’t helping herself and neither are you being a cry baby, but it does pull you into wanting to feel sorry for yourself, and a good cry once in a while does you good, but there comes a point where you have to think enough is enough and think ‘What must I do to move on right now?
Miss D: She wants all my attention (but I am not going to give it to her it is always one thing after another with her) also my brother has said a few times ‘remember when you were in hospital you were worse than mum
Debbie: Your brother has some other ‘no so good patterns running’ it can’t feel good not to be working and sitting at home, far easier to have a go at you as on the outside you are getting better (you are on the inside to, you just haven’t realised it yet) it means he can avoid taking responsibility for his own ‘lazy life’
Miss D: This has upset me because it is not true, I was positive and upbeat most of the time I was in hospital, I did have a few bad days post operations but that was because of the painkillers I was on. I feel gutted that I did not say anything back to him at the time
Debbie: Start planning for next time then, it will come, he’s not going away, at Christmas at my house we have a talking grumpy Santa and one of his sayings is ‘’Back off’’ that comes to mind for some reason…..
