After the couple of sessions I had focussing on losing weight, I have actually gone down a jeans size! And I’m not eating anything different, just in control of how much I eat and choosing whether or not to partake of the less healthy foods!
I am really pleased with how it’s going and feel quite settled that the behaviour is actually mine and not something that’ll wear off soon. Thank you for your time and expertise!
At my practice in Exeter, I use weight loss hypnosis and hypnotherapy to approach weight loss and cravings from all angles. Because you are unique, this is very much in your favour. What good is a diet if you are addicted to the fridge? Weight Loss Hypnosis is used in the following ways:
- Direct subconscious suggestions to program your thoughts and behaviours
- Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) to alter your compulsions, thoughts, cravings and impulses for the better
- Analytical therapy to uncover the real issues that lead to over eating
- Self image work to boost how you see yourself subconsciously
- Future goal planning for true subconscious motivation to succeed
As you can see, when the subconscious is changed and boosted towards what you want, controlled eating and exercise will take care of themselves! Your subconscious is always in the driving seat, you just need to give it the right directions.
People normally imagine weight loss through hypnosis to be simple direct suggestions: “yooouuu wiill beeee thiiiiinnnn!” But hypnotherapy is used to address other issues or associations, that then allow you to lose weight with ease and comfort. When you think about what your issue really is, what do you think? The issue is not that you are over the weight you would like to be. That is consequential, a reaction. The issue is not that you eat too much, or that you don’t exercise enough, as these are also consequential of something else. Your body knows how it works, subconsciously it knows how it metabolises food and how it burns off energy. You know subconsciously through experience, from eating everyday and knowing what you look like, how these processes work. So it’s not that you just accidentally do these things.
Origins of Weight Gain
The real issue is probably deeper than that. Somewhere deep inside, you may have subconsciously chosen to become overweight. This may sound crazy to you now, but it makes sense when you know exactly what will happen if you eat too much or don’t exercise enough. You didn’t overtly choose ‘I want to be overweight’ but you may have decided that the comfort of food was a greater value than looking lean. The values, fears and conditioning that ‘lock’ you into a certain lifestyle may have developed through a process not unlike hypnosis, so why not use hypnosis to lose weight? If you read more about the self-image afterwards (there is another link at the end of the page), this will make more sense. It is very relevant to using hypnosis to lose weight.
There are many reasons that you may have subconsciously chosen to become overweight. They aren’t appropriate to list here being that there are as many reasons as there are people, every one is unique. With hypnosis weight loss and hypnotherapy weight loss, you can uncover the real reasons as to why you are overweight, and then work towards changing that.
In case you haven’t already realised, the beauty about knowing that you subconsciously chose your self-image is that you can choose to change it to something you might prefer.
Why Diets don’t work
Have you tried dieting? Didn’t work? The only way a diet can work is on the level of psychological change. If you work hard enough at sticking to a diet, and love the results so much you couldn’t bare to go back, you may subconsciously alter your self-image and maintain the new you (like self-hypnosis). You may do. But the odds are against it, as you are up against all of the habitual and psychological things that originally persuaded you to be overweight.
In the end, what is a diet? It is a conscious effort to fight something that was created and maintained subconsciously. Dieting is like admitting that you have no real self control at all, that you are out of rapport with yourself. That’s why they can be so painful, because you are doing the opposite consciously, to what you want to do subconsciously. It’s a mental conflict!
Pain-free weight loss
So what’s the best way? Whatever is the real cause of the issue, work with it instead of against it. Just as easily as you became overweight, you can lose it again by changing the subconscious processes. Did you think to become overweight? Then why think to have to lose it?
With a hypnotherapist using a blend of hypnosis to lose weight, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and hypnoanalysis, you can effortlessly go inside and do some magical change work. If you change your self-image to something you would prefer, nothing will stop you achieving that. If you were tied to a table full of food you’d find a way to break free and run. It would be painful to eat too much, or to not exercise. You would find it difficult to do. Whatever it takes to get to where you want to be, your subconscious will guide you towards it. And you will enjoy it, because you are no longer in a mental conflict.
Will you stop eating? Of course not. You may enjoy eating smaller portions, or less frequently. You won’t need to feel guilty about it either, because you know subconsciously that its ok to do that, and so you can enjoy it.
Sit back and let the change begin
You may not realise it now, but as you’ve been reading about hypnosis, hypnotherapy and weight loss, you will have taken things in on a different level. And tonight, you may think about who you will be, when you will lose weight and come to new realisations about what you have been doing, and what you really want.
