Hypnotherapy Psychotherapy Counselling Reiki


Weight Loss and Maintenance

If you're looking at this page hoping to find an answer to your weight issues, then hopefully this is it!

Maybe you've tried a variety of diets, some of which work, some of which don't, and some which may work but have so many negative side effects or are just so difficult to sustain that you gave up before you found out!

The good news is that when using hypnotherapy to obtain a healthy, sensible weight, diet plans are not needed.

That's not to say that you can go out and eat anything you want, it just means that there are no forbidden foods or quirky rules you have to follow. The only thing you need to follow is your body. Listen to your body and it will tell you what it needs; plenty of fruit, vegetables, water and balanced, sensible eating.

For those of you who aren't keen on fruit and vegetables, no problem, we can address that within a session too!

What we're aiming to do through the use of conscious learning (much of which you no doubt already know) and unconscious learning (the bit we do using hypnotherapy), is to alter the way in which you connect with food. We need to eat the right kind of food, the right amount and at the right times.

Some people overeat, some comfort eat, some compulsively eat, some emotionally eat and some don't even realise when they're eating. We need to create a relationship with food where you're in control. We'll re-frame those destructive eating habits so that you can make sensible food choices that are right for you

If you have a lot of weight to lose or believe that your problems lie in overeating, you may want to consider the Hypno Gastric Band. This is a very effective and powerful technique that can allow you to lose weight easily and safely. For more details, please click here.

If you're already at your ideal weight but would like help staying there, we would focus on your reasons for doing so and help eliminate any thoughts and behaviours that may have sabotaged your efforts in the past.

Then we need to motivate you to exercise, where safe and possible to do so. Even small changes have a profound effect on your health, self-esteem and overall image.

I'll help you set goals, determine what has stopped you in the past from getting to that goal and staying there. It could be an addiction to certain foods, low self-esteem, negative associations from the past...a myriad of reasons.

I'll help you change the way you think about food so you don't spend the day obsessing over foods or, as you may have done in the past, obsessing over the foods you shouldn't have! Most importantly, I'll motivate you to change. Everyone is motivated for different reasons. We'll establish what motivates you and increase that motivation further.

We'll focus on the benefits, the rewards and your success. Focusing on the positives, so in this case, on your goal is far more beneficial than focusing on how you are at present and what you want to change. Looking forward to your success and visualising yourself at goal is a prime motivator for the unconscious mind and this will be reinforced at each session.

Believe in yourself and your ability to succeed and you will. Together we can help you get there and stay there for good.
