Appreciating Freedom highlights and supports any and all anti-anorexic/bulimic efforts clients make. Recognition of a persons counter-struggle while under anorexia/bulimia’s pressured regime is a magnificent experience for therapists and clients alike, and one worth truly appreciating. The following questions help outline, underline and colour in the picture of increasing and appreciating freedom:

  • At which time of the day are you most anorexic/bulimic-free?freedom?
  • I have been wondering in what ways you have “stepped outside anorexia/bulimia” this week, and I wonder what this stepping out steps you towards?
  • I wonder who in your life noticed these fantastic anorexic/bulimic free achievements?
  • Was the time spent outside anorexia/bulimic delicious?
  • Do you ever catch yourself living outside anorexia’s prison camp? What is it like? What colour is your freedom?
  • Do you ever find other people enjoying your own mind instead of them only experiencing the mind anorexia/bulimia gives you?
  • If you were to string together all of these victorious anti-anorexic/bulimic moments, what effect would it have on anorexia/bulimia?
  • What rules of anorexia/bulimia did you have to breach in order to come to today?
  • Do you think that your anti-anorexic/bulimic “noticing” of yourself has put anorexia/bulimia on notice?
  • Who in your life would be just barely amazed by your leaving anorexia/bulimia behind?
  • What advice do you have for my many colleagues who find themselves befuddled on how to best help people go free of anorexia/bulimia?
  • Have you ever plotted an escape from anorexia/bulimia?
  • I wonder what plans your own anorexic/bulimic-free person has for you?
  • I wonder which parts of your life you will retrieve and which good qualities will be re-remembered and come back to you once you go free of anorexia/bulimia?
  • I wonder how it will be for you when you are free to just have to “measure up” to yourself and not the culture of anorexia/bulimia’s nagging torment?
  • I wonder in which ways your come-back to your own life might be inspiring for other women?
