Hypnosis for Weight Loss

Hypnosis for Weight Loss - It isn't just about what we eat or how much we exercise, it’s about getting to the core of the problem.  Gaining weight can be caused by lots of things - stress, lack of sleep, anxiety, and holding onto the past etc. . Losing weight, means changing emotional eating. Creating new  habits and behaviors, and knowing what foods are good for your body, without dieting.

How Hypnosis Can Change Your Mind and Body

Hypnosis can help you understand unconscious barriers to weight loss and enhance your chances of success via a variety of types of positive suggestion. Some examples include:

  • Development of an “inner ally” to help support you in making potentially challenging, but necessary changes.

  • Enhancing competence and confidence via encouraging, affirming language.

  • Visualization of already having achieved your goal and feeling good about it.

  • Accessing and partnering with the part of your unconscious that wants to make change.

  • Comforting the part of you that may be afraid of change.

  • Understanding why you have needed to use weight as a tool.

  • Visualization of the new, healthier “tools” for coping, navigating personal relationships, and communicating effectively.

  • Mental rehearsal to make using healthy tools more automatic.

To summarize, at present, excess weight affects more people than not, and losing the extra pounds remains a challenging task for most. Hypnosis – either with a qualified professional or via self-hypnosis techniques - can help you address the unconscious reasons for keeping weight on, and help you more easily shed those extra pounds.]
