Selective Eating Disorder (SED/ARFID)

“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.

more

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. To those that might say ”every child will eat if hungry enough” or ”every child will eat if it has to every time it sits at the dinner table”: not everyone is like that. Our child would go hungry instead of having ”unsafe” food, as well as being even more adamant with not eating if it was pressured (which actually happened at a period in kindergarten).

We talked with Mona about treating an individual young of age and were comforted that the treatment was a friendly conversation with some hypnotherapy at the end. We also were told that a treatment at an early age would not harm another treatment at a later stage, if needed, so we decided to give this a go. We had nothing to lose at this point.

We had extensive instructions before the treatment and we cooked an assortment of different foods, far from our childs comfort zone. We were, to say the least, anxious to watch the treatment unfold.

It felt like Mona hit a switch and changed all of our lives that day. By talking calmly, friendily and supportively, Mona made our child relax and open up to her. Mona helped our child talk to its own fear to realize why the aversion towards foods wasn’t actually doing any good, but doing only harm. Mona helped our child really understand the fear, why it was there and how one could help it become less afraid.

Since that day, our child has had no problems eating yoghurt with bits and pieces of fruit, no problems eating vegetables and is trying new foods. There is still work to be done, but the time of only eating safe foods is a thing of the past and we couldn’t be more grateful for Mona’s help.

We didn’t expect the treatment to be a quick fix, but in many ways it still was. Although we have to keep up the work of introducing new foods to keep the momentum going, Mona gave us the tools we needed to help our child after the treatment. These tools are still used today and will be used for the time to come.

If you are in a similar situation as ours, we wholeheartedly recommend Mona and we are so grateful that we made contact with her at a time when we were desperate for help.

P.S. We do not know Mona personally, nor are we affiliated in any way, so this is an unbiased opinion of the treatment we received for our child.”

“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.

more

Sticking to plain safe foods. 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 he sat and ate chicken something he hasn’t eaten in 3 years, followed by sausage again another food he’s had a phobia of. We’re 3 days into our new life with Jamie and he hasn’t stopped eating and he’s eating anything and everything I’d definitely recommend Mona I’d say to anyone go to her wherever you are in the world because she’s changed our lives massively. Thank you Mona we will forever be thankful for giving us our little boy back.”

“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.

more

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!

more

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.

more

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.”

Weight Loss & Weight Management

“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.

more

She educated me about food, what I was eating and how I could “eat healthy” easily. She also explored why I was eating so badly and helped me to understand this and how to deal with the issues more successfully. I should say at this point that I am a little cynical about very positive reviews and have volunteered to write this testimonial.

Since my first meeting with her, I have lost 90lbs and taken 12 inches off my waist. In addition, my blood pressure is much lower and I enjoy exercise, I used to avoid it. I walk much more and cycle most days, weather permitting! For me, a middle-aged man, her advice was based on easy changes to my diet and lifestyle, applied consistently.

I am happy to say that her influence and advice helped me achieve a dramatic change for the better in my life.”

“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.

more

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 pin-point exactly what Mona did, but the hypnotherapy combined with her in depth knowledge around nutrition caused me to adopt a new paradigm around eating.

more

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 was 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.”

Self Confidence, Smoking Cessation and Other Treatment

“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.

more

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 efficent. 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 was beautiful and calming.

more

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.”
