Body Dysmorphia Ireland

hypnotherapist cork

Hi, my name is Paul Hunter. If you’ve been googling “body dysmorphia” or “body dymorphic disorder”, then you’ve come to the right place.

I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist, CBT Practitioner and Life Coach. Over the past fifteen years, I have helped quite a few people with body dysmorphia.

Body dysmorphic disorder is not a well-known condition and yet it hides in plain sight. I’m sure we’ve all come across the person who constantly checks their appearance, or seems a bit paranoid about how they look. Most of the time, we just dismiss it as being amusing and never give it a second thought.

However, for the person living with BDD, it can be horrific and can even drive them to commiting suicide in extreme cases.

I describe it as your internal critic “going rogue” and attacking you mercilessly. Most people don’t have any defences against BDD, mainly because they never expected it to happen. I’m guessing that you probably don’t even know how it has happened to you.

Don’t worry! Help is here! Using a powerful combination of hypnosis and CBT, we can quickly have you on the road to recovery. Interested? Book your appointment for your FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION now!

What Is Body Dysmorphia?

Body dysmorphia is where you believe that your body has an imperfection (or maybe a number of them). You just can’t stop thinking about it and it makes you feel so bad that you might even avoid social situations.

Now, of course, many of us think negative thoughts about our bodies at times, but when you suffer with BDD, it takes over your life and your emotions. People with severe BDD may even have suicidal thoughts.

The problem with body dysmorphia is that most people don’t know what it is and the people around you may not take it seriously.

Every time I looked in the mirror, I could see my lips were too thin, my cheeks were too fat. It was never-ending and so upsetting. You've helped me to realise that I am good looking enough as I am without changing anything.

Treatment For Body Dysmorphia In Cork

The good news is that there is help available. Body dysmorphia is essentially your mind trying to convince you of something that is not true. It is not just as simple as “stop doing it”. 

Hypnotherapy and CBT can help you to:

  • Question those thoughts when they come into your mind and ask yourself “is that really true?”.
  • Change those old negative thoughts to newer, more positive thoughts.
  • Practice the new thought pattern using hypnosis to speed up the process.
