Using Hypnosis for Weight Loss
Our weight loss process enjoys success because it is not only effective but also enjoyable. Unlike other systems that fight against your natural appetite and desires, our system works within and slightly alters them. Consequently, you will think about food in a subtly different, healthier way. Real change occurs when that mindset shift happens. It's not like you can't have that dessert; you simply don't want it quite as much.
While there are ways to use hypnosis to assist in a calorie-controlled diet, extreme calorie restriction goes against your inborn reflexes. If you're serious about managing your weight, there are far more effective ways to utilize hypnosis. Our objective with this program is to instill a healthier relationship with food and establish a change in the way you use and think about food. This way, you'll be eating for the right reasons, not due to stress, boredom, loneliness, etc.
Our assumption is that you already know what constitutes a healthy diet but may be encountering some challenges with eating in that healthy way. Our method involves some simple and easy-to-follow techniques around how you eat, using hypnosis to reinforce healthy reasons for eating.
Why Diets Fail
Diets are a lucrative industry, attracting a range of practitioners from genuine to dubious. Most diets merely restrict food temporarily, offering short-term results. They address the issue at a conscious level, while the real problem lies in the subconscious. Reducing calories may make you lighter for a short time, but the dissatisfaction often leads to regaining lost weight.
Choosing 'low-fat' or similar marketing tactics isn't a lasting solution. These options can contain problematic chemicals. The truth is, there's no effortless diet-fix.
The key is eating healthy foods in appropriate amounts and for the right reasons. Many struggle with emotional eating, often overlooked by diets.
Hypnosis tackles both eating behaviour and underlying beliefs, making our program highly effective. Clients not only shed pounds but also report improved overall well-being and positivity. That's real progress!
Why Our System Works
You will shift the way you think about food. This is no small task. Using hypnosis, we help you to reduce the impulse to use food in an unhealthy matter, and instill a measure of moderation that will ultimately bring about the desired effect. Additionally where needed, we can help with motivation towards an appropriate level of exercise. Your new and healthy outlook will leave you gently reducing in size until you stabilize at a comfortable new weight.
Most clients will see us for approximately 3 - 5 sessions (once per week). You can learn more about our rates here.
We consistently come back to a couple of basic points:
- Weight loss is dependent on a shift in eating patterns, and possibly a shift in activity levels.
- You need to address the way you think about food - or else you will revert to previous eating.
Our program establishes a process of healthy eating practices and ways of thinking about food that will underpin the way you think of food for the rest of your life.
How To Prepare
Having a plan is a valuable asset when embarking on any program. As you begin, you'll undergo a transformation in your relationship with food and ramp up your exercise routine. The key is to select an exercise that you genuinely enjoy, making it easier to stay committed.
Hypnotherapy facilitates these decisions seamlessly, fostering a newfound enthusiasm for nurturing your body.
Remember, you don't need to commit to running a marathon (unless that's your goal). It might mean a brisk daily walk for some or a daily yoga practice for others—it depends on your starting point. However, if you're determined to achieve results, consistency is key. Start thinking about what resonates with you for regular activity.
Some common options are:
- A daily walk.
- Taking a dance class.
- Walking your own or a friend's dog.
- Getting to a pool once or twice a week.
- Stepping up your time at the gym.
- Cycling to work.
- Deciding to do exercise with a friend, instead of alone.
This is a process that will require effort and that is okay, you can do it. Using hypnosis you will be reinforcing your own commitment and giving yourself the extra motivation necessary to make the difference.
