“I am much better equipped to deal with my disorder and with anything else that life throws my way.”
Upon being diagnosed with Bulimia, Anxiety, and Depression, I began therapy with Mary Vogel. I had been binging and purging for about a year prior to seeking help.
The treatments Mary used came highly recommended so I decided to give it a try as an alternative to traditional talk therapy. Throughout the course of my time with Mary, we used EFT as well as LifeLine techniques. I found tapping (EFT) to be the most influential part of my treatment.
Through the use of tapping I learned to decrease my anxiety level and release anger, which were both large triggers for my bulimic behaviors. Also, The Lifeline techniques we used helped me to understand my emotional and physical responses to certain triggers in my life. It has been about three months since I was diagnosed and my binging and purging behaviors have significantly decreased. Although I still have a long way to go in terms of recovery, I feel that Mary helped me to better understand and control my urges. I have noticed improvements in my relationships with those closest to me, especially in terms of communication. At this point, I feel that I am much better equipped to deal with my disorder and with anything else that life throws my way.
