Weight Control

Losing weight and keeping it off are much, much easier than you probably think. Using hypnotherapy to help you; will make you feel good and keep you motivated from day one. Hypnotherapy can help you achieve a change in mind, which means that weight loss becomes easy, and an inevitable consequence of your new mind set and this of course ensures the change is long term.

Perhaps you want to stop going round in circles trying to break old habits? The reason hypnosis is such a powerful tool for weight loss is it’s potential to help you build new healthy habits. This is ideal for easy, natural weight loss. I am dedicated to the idea that this weight loss should be permanent and healthy.

Hypnotherapy can help with weight loss and weight management in many ways

  • Developing a new self image. See yourself in the future after losing weight and make that your desired future outcome
  • Learn to be more relaxed about weight loss and weight management. Stress is often a serious factor in bad diet and comfort eating.
  • Positive thinking about weight and diet. Stop worrying about your weight and about weight loss and start looking forward to losing weight and achieving your goals.
  • Create a self-fulfilling prophecy. In other words, start to feel better about yourself. This will help you to lose weight and, of course, losing weight will help you to feel even better about who you are and what you can achieve. The whole thing becomes a very positive cycle which goes round and round. Most people expect to have to lose weight in order to feel good about themselves. Interestingly, when you start to feel good about yourself, weight loss, health and happiness often follow.

General information on weight loss

Hypnosis can help by allowing you to overcome unconscious obstacles which prevent you from losing weight and from keeping weight off after a successful diet. You know that eating too much is not what you desire and you know that exercise and sensible diet are important. However, these are not conscious, logical issues. Successful weight loss is as much about re-educating your unconscious mind as it is about dieting. Hypnosis is one of the most natural ways to lose weight.

Understanding what hypnosis is and is not will help you to see a more clear connection between the mind and your weight. Everyone knows that to lose weight you need to eat less and exercise more. It is also clearly established that dieting does not work in any long term way. The statistics show that diets are almost certain to fail; they can sometimes be useful for losing a few pounds quickly for a special occasion but, to maintain a healthy weight in the long term, you really do need to be thinking about things differently. You also need to be developing new habits and breaking down old associations (the easiest way to do this is, of course, to build new positive associations).

Diets seem to encourage people to adopt two very strong beliefs. Firstly, they build up an expectation that you are going to have to make yourself do something you don’t want to do. Secondly, they are supposed to be difficult. Modern approaches to change, including hypnotherapy and other applied psychology methods create a very serious challenge to both of these beliefs.

Hypnosis and hypnotherapy work on a subconscious level to help you achieve a state of mind where you can actually lose weight willingly.
