What is weight loss hypnotherapy?
Weight loss hypnotherapy is used far more widely than most people would realise. Hypnosis is not something that is practiced by people on TV shows that immediately send people to sleep, but a treatment therapy that has a far broader reach with positive results.
Weight loss hypnotherapy is used in a range of weight related treatments such as binge eating and bulemia, but also helps treat trigger symptoms such as anxiety.
Below are ten top reasons to use weight loss hypnotherapy as an alternative option or in support of a calorie controlled diet.
Hypnosis fundamentally changes your mindset towards food
Hypnosis therapy works by placing educative suggestion into the recipients subconscious with the sole aim of changing that person’s habits. When using this for weight loss, your therapist will change the way you focus on food, portion size and your trigger points.
It makes you not want to eat extra food or treats
The mind conditioning the weight loss hypnotherapy provides allows you to transition away from snacking or treating yourself to the usual cakes, sweets or chocolates that ruin your balanced diet. hypnotherapy works for weight loss by re training the brain to visualise your ideal future weight and body shape. This then acts as a catalyst and in built motivator
Eating the right foods becomes automatic
The power of hypnotherapy will enable you to work towards choosing the right foods upfront, not relying on fad diets, binge eating or relying on sweet or take away food meals.
It motivates you to feel good about eating less
Hypnotherapy will enable you to choose the right portion size for your meals without the after thought of being hungry again. Incorrect portion sizes are one of the largest contributors to weight gain.
Less food satisfies you more
By reducing your portion size and effectively your calorie intake, you will see a reduction in your weight. You will find that eating smaller potions not only satisfies you but makes you feel better about yourself too.
It promotes an overall change in mindset that includes a motivation for regular physical exercise
Many of my own clients firstly come for a change in mindset towards food. Once they find that they have achieved the mental outlook that a positive approach to food can achieve, a natural progression to sports or the gym soon follows and their confidence around their weight loss grows.
It replaces the old cycle of thinking, with a new confident and positive “can do” attitude
Many people that undertake hypnotherapy, do so unsure of what the results will be. There are no guarantees with hypnotherapy as much as there are no guarantees with a diet plan. Results will vary from person to person.
However, we consistently see patients using weight loss hypnotherapy very successfully and they break their old cycle of thinking and develop a “can do” attitude without being forced into it.
It makes losing weight easy by rewiring the subconscious mind
Weight loss hypnotherapy is designed to get your subconscious mind to have already made the decision to eat healthy, take the correct portions size, the correct foodstuffs and also promotes a good feeling when you do all of that.
Rewiring the subconscious mind is a powerful tool for weight loss and many other habits treated by hypnotherapy.
Less is more becomes the new mind motto
Weight loss hypnotherapy enables you to accept that less is more. By this we mean when you first choose the correct portions size mentally but view the plate as typically far smaller than you are used to, it won’t feel different or awkward or create a mindset of thinking “that isn’t enough”.
The old finish your plate mentality is replaced with I don’t have to finish my plate; your appetite is fundamentally lowered on a long-term basis
As well as portion size, overeating is another form of self-abuse when it comes to controlling our weight. Weight loss hypnotherapy enables the patient to transition away from an “I see, I eat” mentality to a more controlled way of eating that responds to the body telling you its full.
Who is weight loss hypnotherapy for?
Weight Loss Hypnotherapy is for everyone. Results aren’t uniform and depend on the person involved. Will power, desire, approach and need will play a part in your outcome, but none the less, you should give hypnosis serious consideration.
Do you want to lose weight?
Thousands of people are feeling just like you do right now. Christmas has been and gone, the festivities have brought a few extra pounds and the drinking sessions seem to have continued from there.
