Hypnosis To help with Weight Loss
Hypnosis can be incredibly effective to help with weight loss when used in conjunction with diet and exercise. Last year I lost two Stone five Pounds (15kg) using self hypnosis alone. It was easy to do as I had such effortless determination to stick to my diet and I even stopped drinking alcohol as it just felt like the right thing to do and was not originally part of my plan. I have always liked swimming but started doing far more and I now do five miles a week.
Hypnosis is not an easy option to magically make the weight fall off whilst eating and exercising the same and your determination to succeed makes a tremendous difference to how well it works. However where it makes such a difference over diet alone is that it can aid motivation to exercise and help you enjoy the foods that you know are good for you and are low in calories.
It is not about making you not eat unhelpful foods as Hypnosis can not be used to make people do things they don’t want to do.
In the first session we will agree on an achievable target weight based on your current weight and height. We will then set a date to achieve your target, assuming a realistic rate of loss.
Weight loss needs at minimum of three hypnotherapy sessions depending on how much weight you wish to lose. The first session addresses your relationship to food and exercise and starts you off on the road to a lighter, fitter you. The second session (usually after a week) deals with any problems that may have come up and reinforces the goal that we originally agreed on. There will need to be at least one session after a suitable period of time to check progress and make sure you stay on track for success.
I do not do gastric band hypnosis as I do not believe it to be a good way to reduce weight in the same way that physical gastric band surgery is not as good as a diet and is only a last resort.
