How to lose weight with hypnosis
In my Cheshire hypnotherapy clinic and online, I work with people to help them lose weight. Hypnotherapy is a natural way to lose weight and doesn’t encourage you to restrict foods in the way that diets do, it works on changing your mindset.
When a person over eats there is normally an underlying reason, for example, they may eat due to boredom, stress or emotional reasons. In hypnotherapy sessions we identify your reasons and using the subconscious mind we change these behaviour patterns so you have a different response to these feelings.
When under hypnosis I teach you techniques to help you along the way and you are also given activities to complete to keep you motivated and on track.
Self-hypnosis is also taught so you can practice on a regular basis, allowing the messages to imprint in your subconscious mind.
So why work with the subconscious mind?
The subconscious mind is where all our past behaviours and patterns are stored. This is the part of us in charge of keeping us alive and safe. These behaviours can go all the way back to childhood and using hypnosis we can investigate these.
What could you be doing now to kick start this process?
You could identify your danger points. When do you eat the most? Where are you at the time? How are you feeling? Some of these patterns you could begin to change yourself. For example, if you eat in the car on the way home from work, replace your sugary or fatty foods with a tub of grapes or don’t have food in the car at all.
