Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss

About hypnotherapy for weight loss

Did you know that being overweight or obese makes you more likely to suffer from heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, gout and even bring on respiratory problems.  Have you tried restrictive or extreme diets but found it hard to stick to them and get the results they had promised?

At the very top level of sports many athletes say what separates the good from the great athlete is mental toughness and resilience, Runner's World even goes further to say that "running is 90% mental and the rest physical". Have you ever thought of using this approach to weight loss too? While individual results vary from person to person, hypnotherapy and hypnosis can be an effective aid in kick starting your weight loss journey.

Learning to adjust particular thinking patterns about yourself and your relationship to food can help you on your weight loss journey and to that allusive 'ideal weight' range that many people chase.

A key objective to my approach is to help you learn that your past history of food consumption and selection is a habit that you can unlearn if you want to. I believe that part of the issue is that the mind becomes entrenched in outdated ways of dealing with life. If you reach for food as a coping mechanism to feel better, to manage stress, irritation or then I can help you.

Hypnotherapy can help target food and weight management, maybe you have a few pounds to lose, or a few stone, or maybe you want to cut out sugar and ‘bad habit’ type foods. I bring a tailored and effective approach to being healthy and balanced, both physically and emotionally.

How does weight loss hypnotherapy work  for weight control?

Weight loss hypnosis is effective as it targets the ‘unconscious’ part of your mind to help bring about change. The unconscious part of our mind holds your beliefs, habits, memories and values about yourself and food. If our unconscious mind has a different ‘agenda’ to the conscious mind it creates internal conflict.

Have you ever heard yourself thinking and saying “I just can’t seem to stop eating. The more I try to stop myself the harder it becomes?” Typically the reason for this is that the ‘unconscious’ part of your mind is still moving you towards food and making it a struggle to potentially lose weight. During weight loss hypnotherapy I engage directly with the unconscious mind, helping to change your inner feelings and thoughts around food, working to understand how the ‘unconscious’ is operating. This helps resolve the conflict and consequently the ‘unconscious’ mind becomes aligned with the conscious mind, bringing forth beneficial change on all levels at which point easy weight loss will follow.

With weight loss hypnotherapy you will learn the power of your thoughts and then harness this force to focus on what you really want. Your unconscious mind can hold the direction to the healthy results you want, changing your behaviours and aiding to journey to a new you!

How does my approach work?

My approach is a tailored form of therapy using a multi-faceted approach which includes elements of clinical hypnosis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and strategic goal setting.

Your first consultation will be a fact-find where we will discuss your current situation, history regarding your weight, previous experiences with weight control and your goals and motives. This will become the foundation to a bespoke plan to help your ideal body become a reality.

The process will normally require 3 to 10 sessions depending on your goals and individual circumstances. All sessions will involve a hypnotic induction to induce a trance state, a deepening process to access and communicate with the unconscious mind, specific suggestions linked to your unique circumstances to enable change and an awakening to take you out of trance.

Through my weight loss hypnotherapy process you can feel in control of yourself, your weight and your life. I have helped past clients go on to enjoy a fulfilled and successful life. I hope you will give me the opportunity to help you too.

I look forward to speaking with you soon and helping you on your journey to a new you!
