Hypnotherapy for weight management

Think Better . Feel Better . Live Better

You just want to be able to lose weight without the need to follow a restrictive diet plan and join a gym. You’re done with will power. I understand.

There is a simple and effective solution!

Being repeatedly unsuccessful at losing weight can have a long term negative effect on both your physical and mental health and well being. It’s common for my clients to come and see me with low levels of confidence and a general feeling of despondency, as all methods and techniques they’ve previously used haven’t achieved the results they were hoping for.

There are many factors that contribute to whether or not you will be able to successfully lose and then keep weight off. The food that you eat is only one part of the puzzle.

One of the more important things to consider is the reason why you are eating. It will be difficult for you to lose weight if you are unhappy, stressed, have an irregular sleep pattern or a negative outlook on life.

The key to successful weight loss is changing your outlook and focus which is achieved by changing the area of your brain that drives your thinking.

We can use hypnotherapy for weight management to help you lose weight, increase your feelings of self-worth and help you to approach each day with a renewed ZEST for life.

Food can provide comfort, if you are unhappy then stopping eating foods that improve your mood is going to prove particularly challenging. This is especially true as eating high fat and sugar foods releases feel-good hormones that reward you for your choice, encouraging you to eat more. If you are not feeling happy in your everyday life, then denying yourself something that you know elevates your mood is going to need an incredible amount of willpower.

If you often feel anxious you will spend an increased amount of time thinking from the emotional, negative, obsessional part of your brain. This part of your brain can’t think with logic so you will repeat the same behaviours.

If you are stressed and say for example reach for chocolate, quite quickly your brain will recognise and then encourage this behaviour. It builds up patterns based on your behaviour.

You may well then start to become frustrated at yourself that no matter how hard you try you can’t resist chocolate. Through repetition, you have programmed your brain to associate chocolate with stress relief. Thankfully solution focused hypnotherapy is a really effective way to enable you to think from the rational, intellectual part of your brain.

The intellectual part of your brain is able to think logically about your food choices. It takes the emotion away from eating.

How does anxiety effect weight management?

Anxiety causes the release of the stress hormone cortisol, which encourages fat storage especially around the stomach. This fat then in turn produces more cortisol which encourages more fat storage and so the problem becomes self-perpetuating.

Your body needs to achieve a homeostasis in order for you to successfully lose weight.  Using hypnotherapy we can reduce your levels of damaging stress hormones and help to create the correct hormonal balance needed for you to successfully lose weight.

Anxiety can make enjoying peaceful sleep difficult. If you currently are having irregular sleep patterns, then you may find losing weight even more difficult. Adequate sleep is necessary for us to maintain both physical and mental health. If you are currently suffering from a lack of sleep, then your brain will respond by increasing your hunger in an attempt to re-energise itself.

Why have I found it so hard to lose weight before?

Your body is always looking to find balance. It really doesn’t respond well to you drastically reducing calories and changing your diet. It will see this as a threat and respond by activating your stress response, increasing your hunger and holding onto your fat stores. Your brain does this in order to get you back to your original weight, the weight that it feels you need to be. It is only when you have successfully addressed the areas in your life that are currently bringing stress that your body will achieve the correct conditions to lose weight.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is based on scientific research as to how your brain works. It offers a holistic approach to weight management. The methods used replicate the way your brain works when it’s functioning well.

By reducing your stress and anxiety levels we can lower the amount of cortisol that your body is producing.

As your cortisol levels lower your body will respond by storing less fat and enable it to be burned for energy. By lowering stress levels, we provide you with a better opportunity to improve the quality of your sleep.

As a result, your brain is in a much better position to make logical rather than emotional decisions about what you eat.

Achieving long term weight loss doesn’t have to be hard. It’s as simple as; 

#01 Discover

You learn what’s happening to make you feel the way you do and why up until now you’ve found it so hard to lose weight and keep it off.

#02 Change

We work together each week to bring about positive change, helping you to detach emotion from your food choices leading to sustained weight loss.

No more living with food controlling you. You’ve completely changed your way of thinking, allowing you to enjoy living the life you want.

What will you look forward to the most?
