Body Dysmorphia

Body Dysmorphia

Over the past 2 years I have worked with quiet a number of young women who are inflicted with this debilitating condition called Body Dysmorphia which can present itself in multiple ways including starving one’s body (having control), self-harming (control), distorted view of their body and/or face, lack of confidence, self-hate and a myriad of other ways.

As a multi-faceted condition is has been known to lead to suicide for extreme suffers.

Treating the cause of the condition by uncovering the “root cause of the condition” is part of an integrated programme that I have devised to support people with this disorder.

Of course, everyone is unique so there for their treatment must be tailored to them alone to help ensure a greater success.

Quite often the condition arises because these individuals believe and feel that they have no voice, they are invisible, so it is important that the individual understand and know that they are important, that they do have a voice and that they do have a reason for being on earth.

Social media and modern society have led a greater feeling of separation and isolation from others adding to the dilemma these individuals are facing.

There is however light for those with this disorder.  It is not an easy fix nor a panacea but a fully integrated programme which may include

  • Regression through Hypnotherapy to find out the “root cause” of the disorder so that on an intellectual level the disorder it is understood. It is a matter of uncovering how, when and why this condition arose. Regression may uncover layers of limited beliefs, trauma suffered and other issues which the unconscious mind has been holding onto.
  • Counselling
  • Education through re-framing to help reprogram the unconscious mind to a better way of thinking.
  • Balancing energy centres for wholeness of the body.

Individuals with BDD have a markedly increased risk for suicidality. Approximately 80% of those with BDD report that they have experienced suicidal thoughts, and about one in four or more have attempted suicide. For the majority of these individuals, BDD symptoms are the primary reason for their suicidal thinking and behaviour.

Suicide attempts appear to be even more common in youth and in Veterans with BDD. And in a small study on muscle dysmorphia in men (i.e., preoccupation with having an insufficiently large or muscular build, which often results in excessive weightlifting, dieting, and use of potentially dangerous drugs such as anabolic steroids), 50% reported a lifetime suicide attempt. Multiple studies have shown that suicidality is significantly more common in individuals with BDD than in those with OCD.
