Lose Weight With Hypnotherapy
In trying to tackle obesity, the government spends billions of pounds a year, running huge public campaigns, to promote healthy eating and educating people about the dangers of being overweight. The NHS spends even more, offering a variety of services, in an attempt to stem the tide of obesity; everything from support groups in your local community, gym vouchers, to increase exercise, referrals to dieticians and nutritionists, even bariatric surgery.
Despite this, obesity is rising faster than ever before. A third of people over the age of 35, are currently obese. Why? What do all these methods have in common; aside from the investment from the taxpayer?
They all attempt to tackle obesity at a conscious level, showing you the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and the dangers of obesity; presenting a well researched, logical argument to your conscious mind. You already know the health implications, of being overweight...but still, it isn’t enough. The motivation just isn't there.
You’re overweight because you overeat! Ok…so why do you overeat? What’s driving that behaviour? That’s the question no one is asking. It’s very difficult to stop doing something, if you don’t know why you’re doing it in the first place.
Lifestyle factors, contribute to weight gain but they aren’t the cause. In adults, who are 3 or more stone overweight, overeating is rarely, if ever the problem. It’s a symptom of an emotional state, buried deep in the unconscious mind, underneath your level of awareness.
Trying to tackle an unconscious problem, at a conscious level, such as going on a diet, is like trying to shoot a target in France, standing this side of the Channel…not exactly inefficient but takes a superhuman effort, all the same.
Hypnotherapy bypasses the conscious mind, to uncover the hidden processes, driving your behaviour. Sort that out and the weight loss takes care of itself; no dieting, no cravings.

Ditch The Diet
Yes...diets make you temporarily lose weight but 95% of all people who lose weight through dieting, will regain it in one to five years, with the vast majority putting on more weight than before they went on the diet. That’s because, they are tackling their weight at a conscious level. If you only treat the symptoms and not the cause of the behaviour, weight loss can only occur in the dieting period, meaning you’re either on a diet or you’re putting on weight, with very little in between. Many know this as “Yoyo dieting”.
Fad diets can be harmful, as they may lack essential nutrients. Moreover, they teach you nothing about healthy eating. Thus, when you've "completed" your fad diet, you simply boomerang back to the unhealthy eating patterns which caused your weight gain in the first place!
Since dieting, by definition, is a temporary food plan, it won't work in the long run. Moreover, the deprivation of restrictive diets may lead to a diet-overeat or diet-binge cycle. And since your body doesn't want you to starve, it responds to overly-restrictive diets by slowing your metabolism, which of course, makes it harder to lose weight.
Losing Weight with Hypnotherapy
Clear disruptive eating
Silence emotional hunger
Feel fuller, faster
Learn Mindful Eating
Increase motivation and control
The Weight Management Program utilizes a combination of hypnotherapy and analytical psychology, to uncover the hidden thought processes, driving your behaviour to overeat, providing you with an understanding of why you do the things you do. All your decisions about what you eat, when you eat and how much you eat, take place in your mind. This is why many people never feel full. They never get the signal to stop eating because they were never hungry for food in the first place. It is paramount, to deal with what is going on at an unconscious level, in order to achieve long term weight stability. Only then, will you have the clarity to distinguish between real and emotional hunger.
Following this, an image of the “ideal you…the best version of yourself” is cemented firmly in place. This increases motivation but most importantly, means your mind will accept that “idealized image” as reality and reject anything that goes against that belief…including unhealthy food.
The therapy then moves on to putting “anchors” around food and the way you eat. This means “reprogramming” your mind to eat more slowly, enjoy your food (without the guilt, normally associated with dieting) and feel fuller faster. With these suggestions locked in place, you will find yourself automatically eating less and losing weight, without really thinking about it.

We are constantly bombarded with TV programmes, advertising and social media feeds full of pictures of food, and the presence of these can make the temptation to veer away from healthy or intuitive eating very strong. We may have developed certain negative mindsets around what we put in our bodies too. Hypnotherapy for weight loss can be an effective method in challenging these mindsets and moments of temptation, and living a healthier life.
Losing weight can be a difficult process. Most weight loss pills and some commercial weight reducing programmes, (often endorsed by celebrities) focus on restricting what you eat, rather than considering how you eat, what you think about the food and how you are putting into your body.
The aim of hypnotherapy for weight loss is to make you feel confident about your body, change negative thoughts about eating and help you lose weight responsibly, without impacting your emotional wellbeing. By targeting the unconscious mind with powerful suggestion techniques, hypnotherapy can help you develop a positive relationship with food, which is key to healthy weight loss and long-term weight management.
