Hypnotherapy and Weight Loss -
change your mind and change your weight!
When you use hypnotherapy for weight loss, the aim is to help you to identify any underlying emotional needs or habits that affect your eating patterns or your relationship with food.
Once you have found healthier ways to think about and deal with food you become free to achieve your ideal, healthy body weight and to maintain it in the long term.
We also look at what benefits you will get out of being a healthy weight and size, and use this to help boost your will power, confidence, self esteem and motivation.

How weight loss hypnotherapy helps
Many people with a healthy body weight say they eat all they want to, and never gain a pound.
Where that's true, it's because what they want to eat is the right kind and amount of food to maintain their healthy weight. They eat when they are hungry, and they listen to their appetite when it tells them they are full.
Those with weight problems have often lost touch with this natural mechanism. Their eating habits depend on emotional or environmental factors rather than on physical hunger.
We all know that the only way to change your body weight is to eat and exercise correctly. But if you have ever received emotional benefit from your unhealthy eating habits, it may be difficult to do this.
If you overeat when you are feeling down, for example, trying to reduce your weight doesn't just involve reducing your food intake. It involves denying yourself a strong source of comfort and support.
Emotional hunger (for that feeling of comfort) may be what causes you to have cravings or to binge on unhealthy food. When you lose weight with hypnosis, you free yourself from these unhealthy habits, so you can achieve and maintain your ideal body weight.
Changes in your weight can, of course, be related to psychiatric or physical conditions requiring medical treatment. If you think this may apply to you, you should consult your GP.
I give all my weight control clients a support CD at their first session.
If you're too far away from my clinic to benefit from one to one hypnotherapy sessions with me, or if you simply prefer to try hypnotherapy on your own first, you can order a copy of this CD to help you.
If you order this support CD and decide within two months to come to me for a one to one session as well, I'll reduce the cost of your session by the price you've paid for the CD.
