Losing weight can be a difficult process and there are a confusing amount of diet plans and conflicting information.
We are constantly bombarded with advertising pushing unhealthy foods. You are absorbing these messages to your unconscious mind every day. We may have developed certain negative mindsets around food too. Hypnosis for weight loss can be an effective method in challenging these mindsets and moments of temptation.
The aim of hypnotherapy for weight loss is to make you feel confident about your body, change negative thoughts about eating and help you lose weight in a healthy way without damaging your emotional well-being. By targeting the unconscious mind with powerful suggestion techniques, I can help you develop a positive relationship with food and exercise which is key to healthy weight loss and long-term weight management. There may be issues from the past creating blocks to successful weight loss and these can also be explored. Sometimes your extra weight is nothing to do with food. You could be trying to comfort yourself, reward yourself or protect yourself from harm. These issues may have arisen from past trauma which can be revisited in regression therapy.
While it is important for people to lose weight for health reasons it’s not good to feel ashamed of your body. Body shape and size is so tied in with the idea of beauty in our society so people are constantly looking for ‘quick fixes’ to cut corners. Ask yourself: am I happy doing this? Can I carry on doing this for the rest of my life? Your choices should enhance your life and well-being, not make you miserable.
This is where hypnotherapy for weight loss can help. In order to change your body, you need to first change your mind. You have to ask yourself – why am I unhappy with my body, and why can’t I lose weight?
