Lynda Roberts Cert Ed. SQHP (GHR). CNHC. AWLH
Hi, and welcome to Hypnotherapy Southeast. My name is Lynda Roberts, and I run an established Hypnotherapy practice based in Colchester, Essex. I am a general practitioner, specialising in motivational weight loss and anxiety release.
Exclusive 6 week motivational weight loss and confidence building programme 'WEIGHT OFF YOUR PLATE' is available to you if you are someone who has had enough of dieting, or who eats for emotional reasons.
Emotional eating can be dissolved when you understand what your personal triggers are. No more dieting, restrictions or calorie counting, and no more feeling hungry and ratty! Once you enable your mind to release the emotions and their cause, losing weight in a healthy, safe way is an easy lifestyle choice. It isn't calories that determine your weight - it's your own thoughts!
MY NEW BOOK 'WEIGHT OFF YOUR PLATE' IS AVAILABLE NOW ON AMAZON. This book will give you a clear understanding of how your mind tricks you into reaching for unhealthy foods when you're feeling stressed, and how you can reverse that trick. Discover new ways of dealing with those familiar triggers that send you to the fridge, and find a new confidence as your shape and weight changes to what you want it to be. Self-hypnosis, examples of tasty, healthy recipes and much, much more!
Here's a little taster of what the book will give you, taken from Chapter 4:
SO YOU THINK SUGAR IS A SWEET LITTLE SUBSTANCE?
Here's just a few of the side effects of excessive sugar intake:
1.Sugar can add weight around your waist, known as visceral fat - linked to heart disease.
2. The liver stores excess sugar as fat, raising triglycerides, which can cause a fatty liver.
3. Cholesterol mixes with triglycerides, forming a dense low density lipoprotein ( the bad cholesterol), which can block arteries.
4. If blood sugar falls too low, glycogen is released by the liver (glycogen is your serve store of glucose). Once your body has used that, distress signals are sent out, and adrenaline is released. You feel shaky and tired. What will you reach for to give you a quick energy fix? Good old sugar!
5. If you're a sugar sensitive person, your moods and energy levels will spike and crash, sending you rushing for more comfort quick fix food.
6. Sugar sensitive people who are also taking anti depressants may find they are changing their medication frequently because the symptoms of sugar sensitivity can mimic depression.

ANXIETY, PANIC ATTACKS AND STRESS:
If you are experiencing anxiety , panic attacks and/or stress, hypnosis can help you to overcome those feelings, and find inner peace as your confidence grows. I will teach you powerful self-hypnosis techniques to use in between sessions, so that your feelings of anxiety soon become a thing of the past. Think of anxiety and panic as a faulty car alarm going off when there's no reason - reset it and it stops!
PHOBIAS may be dissolved in as little as one session!
Whatever it is you want to change, hypnotherapy can help you find a way that's just right for you.
Helping you become free of whatever has been holding you back is my top priority, so a free 30 minute initial consultation is offered either before or at the start of your first session, which gives you time to discuss the changes you are looking to explore. Sessions are available via Skype or Facetime if you live some distance from my practice in Colchester, Essex.
Sessions are approximately an hour long, but sometimes they may run over time slightly if you have reached an important point in your therapy. My aim is to help you to feel better about yourself and live the life you want to live ....I work with what you give me in session, so the therapy is not passive...it's both of us working together as a team to free your mind from whatever has been holding you back. Hypnotherapy is not a magic wand, but great results can be achieved when you really want to change more than anything else. It goes without saying that absolutely confidentiality is guaranteed, so you can relax in the knowledge that your privacy is paramount.
You will have support and guidance on every step of your journey towards a better future, and I am happy to take an SOS call or text between sessions if you need reassurance. I will motivate and guide you so that you can release old outdated feelings, and move on with your life.
During the free initial 30 minute consultation, you will have the opportunity to ask as many questions as you need to, and for us to work out the best way forward to help you feel better.
My experience enables me to offer you help whatever your problem. Often a combination of techniques can produce amazing positive changes in as little as two or three sessions. Some of the techniques I may use are content free, which means you do not have to tell me anything if you would rather not - the work is done in your own mind. In any event, your privacy is always respected.
Whatever changes you want to make, together we can find a solution.
If you feel that now is the time for someone to listen to you, the first step is to contact me and book in for your free consultation- just doing that will feel empowering, I promise. I understand it can be a little bit nerve wracking making that first contact to seek help, but you will be glad you did! Don't forget, if you live some distance away from my practice, Skype or FaceTime can be used.
