What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is a therapy carried out while in hypnosis and is used along with the mind’s own natural abilities, to resolve issues, relieve emotional burdens and achieve personal goals. It is a safe, effective process and involves the client and therapist working together to bring about positive changes in how they think, feel and act.

What can Hypnotherapy used for?

Hypnotherapy can be used to improve, and in many cases entirely remove, any symptom or challenge that is caused by emotions, habits, behaviour or psychological issues. Resolving a problem that’s “inside you but feels out of your control” can give you your life back.  As well as resolving problems, many now use hypnotherapy to improve performance in sport, improve motivation and lose weight.

Hypnosis for Weight Loss

Hypnosis is included as an optional extra as part of my 3 month Weight Loss Program alongside Nutritional Advice

The interesting thing about weight loss with hypnosis is that you are retraining the subconscious mind. That means you are learning and changing past behaviours; accepting new behaviours that will help you eat healthier and have an interest in exercise. In other words, through repetitive and positive suggestions given by a professional hypnotist or hypnotherapist or even through self-hypnosis, you begin to learn new habits. Therefore, the formula for success with weight loss is actually easy. 

One important aspect that is sometimes missing when it comes to managing weight is that your mind can work against you and if that is the case your efforts at weight loss may only work for a short time.

Dieting stresses what you can’t eat, setting up an inner conflict that can enforce cravings for the very food you are trying to avoid and as you try to rely on will- power and fail, you end up blaming yourself when you can’t resist that unhealthy food. This is where Hypnosis can really help. 

The change you see with hypnosis is gradual, which ensures the weight loss is natural and more importantly, lasting. The most common problem with weight loss is that weight comes back because the the loss is too fast. However, by using hypnosis to change behaviours or habits, the changes come over time and the results stay.

Keep in mind that hypnotherapy can help you lose weight and then keep it off in a number of different ways:

  • You will develop a new self-image, seeing yourself as a thinner, more healthier person that makes you want to achieve the goal of weight loss
  • You will learn how to relax about weight loss and weight management, stressing less, which can have better results. Often when a person becomes stressed, they use food as a crutch.
  • You will become positive about the process of weight loss and weight management whereas before, you might have seen the process as something negative. Hypnosis will retrain the mind to view the entire process much differently.
  • You will be creating your future as a new person. You will feel better about yourself, and that confidence lets you work toward other goals pertaining to family, friends, work, hobbies, and so on.

Typically, when a person uses hypnosis to lose weight, they find themselves moving in a positive circle, being happier, stronger, and healthier individuals. The things that can do to the mind are incredible. Suddenly, the weight loss and exercise all makes sense and as the weight begins to drop off, life takes on an entirely different look, all for the better!
