Long term weight loss with hypnosis

Have you struggled to lose weight over the past  few months or even years, and are you fed up with diets that never seem to work? Well you’re not on your own. Statistics show that in the UK alone, more than one in four adults are trying to lose weight most of their lives, and more than 60% of adults are either overweight or obese, with these figures continuing to rise.

There are many different factors why a person may be overweight and struggle to shift excess weight. Hypnotherapy works on the basis that it can be these unconscious thought processes that cause us to behave in ways that consciously, we would prefer not to. Hypnotherapy is about waking people out of these trance states which can lead to unwanted behaviour like overeating, smoking or negative thinking.

Should you be considering hypnosis for the first time, you may be slightly apprehensive not knowing what to expect. Hypnosis is a natural state of deep relaxation during which your sub-conscious mind becomes more susceptible and open to suggestion. Contrary to some depictions of hypnosis, people who have been hypnotised do not lose control over their behaviour, in fact they typically remain aware of who and where they are, and they may also remember what transpired during hypnosis.

It is important people know about the health benefits of losing weight and the reasons behind wanting to lose weight. Hypnotherapy looks at the package as a whole. This includes looking at a person’s behaviours and emotions around food. By doing this it highlights what changes need to be made in order to see results, working on self-control so they are able to choose more positive and healthy habits.

Habits are a very difficult thing to break as human beings are creatures of repeating patterns. However, hypnotherapy can help break those habits in order to help gain a healthier way of living and get a clearer understanding of what's going on.

Exercise can be just as important as food intake, so whether you are a lover of exercise or you are somebody who dislikes any form of exercise, hypnotherapy can be a powerful tool to help you find the motivation within yourself.

Hypnotherapy can help with;

  • Finding new and healthy habits.

  • Reducing snacking and eating.

  • Finding motivation for exercise.

  • Reducing alcohol intake.
