Weight Loss

“Hypnotherapy for weight loss is about changing your habit with food for the rest of your life, so unlike crash diets it changes the root of your compulsive eating or lack of interest in exercise so you are free to enjoy the rest of your life – eating and exercising sensibly without having to think about it.” National Council of Hypnotherapy.

Hypnotherapy for weight loss, uncover what your issue with food and weight loss is about, changing to a better relationship/manage your food for life…

Food for thought

Healthy eating

Many people come to hypnotherapy after trying various diets or attending slimming clubs and it can be great to feel that social encouragement, but feelings of inadequacy follow if the results you achieve are at best temporary.

The diets themselves can work – but because most people expect their efforts to be just the quick fix they needed in reaching a targeted weight, the disappointment soon sets in when those pounds don’t miraculously stay off and so starts the constant battle with the weighing scales. As a result, most people end up blaming themselves for their inability to lose and keep the pounds off, spurring them to try yet another diet which ultimately can bring about the same dizzying, frustrating cycle.

Does this sound or feel a familiar pattern to you?

Stop blaming yourself! If you’ve been successful at losing weight on diets then you’ve already proved you have plenty of will power.

There are other reasons why you could be struggling with your weight. Like:

Emotional connections | Comfort eating | Food cravings | Boredom or learned habits |Social pressures | Self-image and self-esteem | Stress and anxiety| Reward tactics

Getting under the bonnet: 

Using Cognitive Hypnotherapy we uncover what your issue with food and weight management is about, then how we can use this information to help you to reprogram and replace those unwanted behaviours with something more positive because this can lead to lasting change, where the battle ends and a much more healthy relationship with food continues to be a normal part of everyday life.

This is NOT A DIET – this is a chance to MOVE FORWARD towards a much better understanding of your personal relationship with food and what these changes may mean to you. This is not a magic wand approach – you will need to be engaged in the process and prepared to take on some simple tasks to help yourself – this could be from listening to a download to setting and completing progressive steps or activities along the way to achieving that thing that will be the difference that makes the difference in your life with your issue changed.
