Does that sound like you?  I should know, because I’ve had my own struggles in the past with weight issues, but I’ve found that hypnotherapy is an effective tool for losing and maintaining a healthy weight.

How does it work?

Hypnotherapy for weight loss works by using positive suggestion, determined by how you’d like your future self to be and in a relaxed state planting these suggestions into your unconscious mind to enable you to make the changes that you want.  You will learn powerful techniques which are designed to empower you so that you can take control of your choices, developing a positive relationship with food and exercise.  Through using hypnosis for weight management you will learn to stop craving unhealthy foods and feel more relaxed about choosing healthier food choices, as this becomes more natural to you.  Hypnotherapy gets to the root cause of any negative patterns around food, helping you to establish healthier foundations for your eating habits:

It will allow you to change the way you focus on food and control portion size and help you to identify your trigger points.

It will become a natural choice to reach for healthier foods, without relying on faddy diets and you’ll find yourself avoiding the usual trap of binge eating as you will feel so much more in control of your food choices.

It will motivate you to transition away from snacking, as hypnotherapy for weight loss enables you to retrain you unconscious mind to focus on how the future you wants to be, focusing on your ideal weight and body shape.

A key part of hypnosis for weight loss is helping yourself to eat consciously, making you aware of what you’re consuming, putting other emotional issues aside and developing a healthy relationship with food. This allows you to enjoy your favourite foods in moderation and avoid weight gain.

Hypnotherapy can help to address comfort eating, turning to food in times of stress, after a busy day or when we’re feeling sad or lonely. Whatever causes you to comfort eat, hypnotherapy helps you to learn how to process negative emotions.

Gastric band hypnotherapy is another tool that is useful for clients who struggle with mindful eating and don’t know when to stop, by planting the idea into your unconscious mind that you will feel fuller for longer, can help to eliminate constant snacking throughout the day.

Hypnotherapy also helps to motivate you towards your goal of exercising more and helps you to overcome any mental blocks that may be preventing you from achieving this.
