I'm glad I've had a chance to write this one up: Richard had a session here - just one - to address his food texture phobia. As he explained in his initial enquiry: "There are certain foods I cannot eat, not because I don't like the taste but because I don't like the texture and/or have some kind of phobia of them - particularly onions, mushrooms and peppers."
Here is the feedback:
I promised to contact you and let you know how I’d been getting on after my hypnotherapy to combat my eating blocks. We met a few weeks ago now (Sat 16th May) and in summary since then it’s been going pretty well!
What has happened is that I’m no longer scared to eat onions and plenty of other fruit and vegetables, especially if it is combined with other foods and/or part of a meal. I have tried and eaten plenty of foods that I previously wouldn’t eat, some of which I like and eat easily, some of which I tolerate and some of which I don’t mind eating if combined with other foods.
This is a revelation to me. I can now look at a menu and not automatically rule half of it out.
I can visit friends and family without having the embarrassment of leaving large amounts of what I’ve been served. I can eat a more healthy and balanced diet of much more fruit and veg.
We recently went to Spain for a week and I ate all sorts of things that I may not have tried. In some meals I in fact ate and tried more than anyone else was willing to do as they were unsure what we were eating.
So, thank you, it was a fun session and the results would say successful.
Not bad, eh? All that was happening there was that the Subconscious mind was creating an aversion to certain foods for no good reason, and I put in a polite request for that to be reconsidered and the aversion/phobia dropped. And that was it. more about this
If you would like to feel more comfortable about eating a wider range of foods, just give me (Chris) a ring on 0161 474 8120 office hours or call/text 07748 838 644 any time.
