Losing weight can be difficult, for some there it is a process of losing weight, then putting it back on, losing weight again and so the yo-yo diet continues. It's not easy. Many people come to me for hypnotherapy for weight loss as a last resort, which I always feel is such a shame as hypnotherapy is a great way to help you to gain control and loose the weight you need to. Many clients have tried several different types of diet and have been unsuccessful or sucessfull only to a certain point, that last stone ma. If you are motivated to make a change hypnotherapy may very well be able to help you.
There are several factors that lead to obesity, these include eating the wrong foods, eating irregularly, portions sizes that are too large, lack of physical activity or comfort eating. What happens is we get into bad habits, we make associations, every time we have a cup of tea, that means we have a biscuit and so it goes on. It is our belief systems that lead us to behave, when we say 'I cant' loose weight, 'I cant' stop or 'I cant' say no, that determines our behaviour. As Henry Ford once said "whether you think you can, or you think you can't you're right" Programs that promise fast, easy results have their difficulties, we expect to lose weight without changing our eating patterns or lowering our calories, what we really need to focus on is removing our old patterns of behaviour and replacing them with new ones.
There are obvious health concerns to being overweight (you may need to lose weight if your BMI is over 25) these include
Type 2 diabetes
High blood pressure
Poor circulation or circulatory problems
Not only are there concerns for health, there is also the emotional aspect, being overweight can lead to low self esteem or self confidence, anxiety or stress.
Hypnotherapy can help you lose weight quickly and easily by removing our old though patterns and replacing them with new ones. It is a very safe, very natural process that has been used for centuries. Unfortunately many people have misconceptions about hypnotherapy due to television programs and stage shows that have people carrying out weird and wonderful performances for entertainment purposes. A typical session starts with taking the full details of the client and establishing the history of their presenting problem. I then act as a coach, I coach you into a deep state of relaxation, using guided visualisations, which then enables suggestions to be put to your subconscious mind (this part of the brain that controls bodily function) when a person enters such a state of relaxation, there is an increased concentration of the mind, the body relaxes and there is an increased susceptibility to the suggestion. Once the suggestion is accepted by the subconscious mind it must result in action. During hypnosis you are not asleep, out of control, you cannot be told to do anything you don't want to do or be forced to reveal any of your thoughts, feelings or deep dark secrets! Yes we can all be hypnotised (as long as we want to!)
The session lasts about 1 hour and 15 minutes and yes you are safe to drive home (many of my clients ask me this!) you will feel wonderfully relaxed and calm. I could share with you quotes from my clients saying great things about great results, but I will spare you the hard sell, all I can say is if you are motivated to make a change hypnotherapy could be very beneficial for you.

What is hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a wonderful therapeutic process that has benefits that enable you to make positive changes. There are may psychological, physical and emotional disorders that hypnosis can be applied to, these include weigh loss, stress and anxiety. It has been shown to help people overcome addictions such as smoking or alcoholism and It can help with stammering or blushing. Phobias lend themselves particularly well to hypnotherapy and panic attacks or obsessive compulsive behaviour, and stress-related problems like insomnia, may benefit. It is such a shame that people come for hypnotherapy as their last resort, hypnotherapy is a wonderful treatment that can produce great results.
How does it work?
Hypnotherapy is the process of inducing a deeply relaxing state in such a way that the analytical left-hand side of the brain is turned off, while the non-analytical right-hand side is made more alert. The conscious control of the mind is subdued, and the subconscious mind becomes alert and receptive. Since the subconscious mind is a deeper-seated, more automatic force than the conscious mind, this is the part which has to change for your behaviour and physical state to alter. For example if you want to overcome your fear of spiders you may have done several things to help you overcome this fear, but this fear will stay put as long as long as your subconscious mind holds onto this fear. Hypnotherapy will 'reprogram' your subconscious mind so that these deep seated fears are eliminated or changed.
What hypnotherapy isn’t!
During all times during the hypnotherapy process you are in control. You are not alseep, you will be very much awake and alert. You will not be asked to do anything you would not ordinarily do. You will remain fully aware of your surroundings and situation, and are not vulnerable to every given instruction of the therapist. The important thing is that you want to change some behavioural habit or addiction and that you are highly motivated to do so. Any suggestion accepted by the subconscious mind must result in action.
There is a tendency to think of hypnosis as something that is used as a form of entertainment, and this was the case a few years back. A highly trained hypnotherapist is absolutely not concerned with hypnosis for the purpose of entertainment. It is a therapeutic process that enables you make positive changes. It is not a magical form of mind control, at no point can you be made to do something you don't want to do. Anybody can be hypnotised, some are able to reach a deeper state of hypnosis than others, when we daydream, doze or meditate we actually enter the altered state we call hypnosis.
