When we use hypnotherapy for weight loss, we use it in conjunction with looking at the reasons why you overeat.
It is not as simple as putting you in a trance state and then suggesting that you won’t want to eat anymore.”
Were you rewarded with sweets or naughty snacks or were they given to you when you came home from school?
At the cinema, do you go for the ‘go large’ popcorn, nachos and fizzy drink option?
Are you attracted to the ‘two for one’ promotions at the shops?
Is it chocolate, crisps, wine, eating out, eating in, beer, curry, biscuits etc, that you find impossible to resist?
There may be a clue here as to why weight loss elludes you
When you were growing up, was food used to make you happy, calm you down, as a bribe or reward or a threat? Were you told that if you didn’t eat all your dinner, something terrible would happen?
It is the belief systems you have formed, and remain at a subconscious level, that have led you to the relationship you have with food now.
Using hypnotherapy and some of its beneficial tools, we can work on neutralising these memories and re-programme your mind. This will create better, healthier thoughts and behaviours connected to food. All of which will help your weight loss.
We are not talking magic, nor are we talking diets and huge amounts of willpower, just a new way of thinking about food.
