ARFID (Selective Eating Disorder)

“We contacted Mona to ask if there was a possibility that she could help our 6-year-old child whom we believed was struggling with ARFID. We had tried different paths for several years, but no meaningful signs of any progress were to be seen.

Our child did not want to taste new food, couldn’t manage foods with ”lumps” or different textures, like berries in yoghurt or basil leaves in pâtés. If we managed an attempt to try something new or something out of the safe food group, our child would retch, as if the body was rejecting it.

ARFID (Selective Eating Disorder)

“We arrived for an appointment with our 13-year-old son Jamie on the 8/12/18. Our son has had an ED for over 3 years and it has had complete control of his life, major weight loss and food restriction… the phobia itself taking over his life completely.

We met with Mona and she put us all at ease, the appointment went amazingly and after our son doing the 3 steps with her and having hypnosis sat and ate chicken, something he hasn’t eaten in 3 years, followed by sausage, again another food he’s had a phobia of.

“Thank you so much. Toby has been struggling with selective eating disorder (SED) for years. I think we are in shock a little. Toby is over the moon and feels very proud of himself.

He messaged his older brother to say what he had tasted and his brother replied with “change your password” thinking someone had spammed him! He is still talking about what new things he is going to try, many many thanks again, I feel we are finally on the new path.”

“My 13 year old daughter had a Skype session with Mona today. It was a very positive experience for my daughter who has been afraid of trying new food since she was 2. Afterwards she tasted several things for the first time ever, and even mixed food!

Although it will take time to try more and more foods, my daughter is so happy to have the understanding of her own food phobia. It seems like a weight has been lifted off her shoulders now. She wants tomato soup for dinner today – for the first time in her life!!

Thank you, Mona Hansen.”

“Just got home from a trip to London for my daughter to have a face to face session with Mona Hansen. I left her in there for 1 hr 45 minutes and returned to find her EATING a bowl of fruit salad. She had successfully tried all 8 foods that she took with her.

We are still in complete shock. After 24 years of chicken nuggets chips and bread rolls, I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I have everything crossed for the days and weeks ahead but without a doubt today was like a miracle. So proud of my brave girl.”

ARFID (Selective Eating Disorder)

“After our first session with Mona our 8 year old daughter has already decided to try new food. She chose tomato soup with macaroni and sausages (something she’s never eaten before) when her friend came to visit and she even ate some!

On another occasion, I made spaghetti with sauce consisting of mince, onion, tomato and cream. Previously, she wouldn’t go near onion and If she discovered even the smallest piece in her meal she wouldn’t eat the rest. This time, when she saw I was adding onion I reminded her she had agreed to eat new foods, and lo and behold she tried it without any hesitation. This is the first time in 8 years I have been able to make the same meal for everyone to eat.

ARFID (Selective Eating Disorder)

Our 16-year-old son has had restricted eating since he was around 3 years old and we were really worried about how this would restrict his life as an adult. Two weeks after his session with Mona, there has been a huge change in his attitude. He has tried one (sometimes more) new foods every day, and has found in most cases that he actually doesn’t mind them or even quite likes them. Most amazing has been him independently ordering, and eating, a beetroot burger in a pub!! It’s early days but we are feeling optimistic about the future. There’s been such a big and immediate improvement in his ability to try new things, and the session really helped him understand the reasons behind his restricted eating. Thank you so much Mona – worth every last penny.

ARFID (Selective Eating Disorder)

I visited Mona in the last two weeks and she spent time with my 14 year old daughter Grace who was diagnosed with ARFID when she was 5 years old . The session was excellent and a benefit to Grace and also myself to understand more about ARFID and how the brain and body works causing issues with food . For the 1st time in nearly 12 years Grace has taken the plunge and is trying one new food a day. This has ranged from Chilli to a Satsuma , Baked Potato , Yogurts , Rice & Fish so a massive improvement and also in her confidence around food . She is keeping her diary and whilst we are taking it slowly she at last feels in control of decisions around food . I highly recommend anyone with ARFID seeing Mona . She was so welcoming and Grace whilst at first was nervous really enjoyed the session .

“When I first started to see Mona, my life was a mess. Professionally and personally, I was low on motivation. The traditional methods of ‘talk therapy,’ employed by my psychologist at the time, weren’t helping.

Mona had a technique that I hadn’t encountered before – dynamic therapy. Through this interactive and highly immersive methodology, I was able to break destructive behavioural patterns and move forward. Today, I am a more confident person; eager to take on any challenge that is thrown before me.”

“Therapy with Mona was amazing, she is extremely helpful and efficient. She is very kind and helpful, not judging anything, friendly and has a real desire to help other people.”

“Before I went to see Mona I had tried many times to quit smoking but had never managed a sustained period of abstinence. It always felt like a struggle and I was also anxious and nervous. Mona’s approach was very different; her aura and energy were beautiful and calming.

I had no doubt I was in great hands. I came out of the session feeling on top of the bloody world! But more importantly, I now feel I’m in control when saying no to smoking.”

“I was referred to Mona by a friend who had achieved a very significant weight loss. I was extremely sceptical about “hypnotherapy” having tried a different counsellor many years ago, without success.

“Having struggled for most of my life, like many others, with a weight problem someone suggested hypnotherapy. This resulted in an introduction to Mona Hansen. The result has been transformative. A combination of hypnotherapy, counselling and dietary advice resulted in a loss of 20 kg in a sustainable and sustained manner.

If someone had told me before this therapy that I would ever be seen inside a gym, disbelief would have been the least of my reactions. The physiological benefits of weight loss are obvious, the psychological benefit of attaining a persistently elusive goal is also significant. Undoubtedly Mona’s ability to empathise with her clients and share their goals and journeys contributes significantly to her and their success.”

“Stress was at a constant high. Sleep was not great at all. Eating was just awesome. Not. It was out of control. The wrong foods, at the wrong times, in the wrong quantities. What an unfortunate combination. I can’t pinpoint exactly what Mona did, but the hypnotherapy combined with her in-depth knowledge around nutrition caused me to adopt a new paradigm around eating.

My shopping basket changed in content; eating off-menu in restaurants became a new norm; my eating portions and cadence changed radically; my motivation for sport was heightened. My outlook and attitude were generally far more positive and I actually looked forward to the next healthy mealtime. The experience with Mona has been quite profound and life-changing in many ways.”
