Weight loss hypnotherapy is used far more widely than most people realize. Hypnosis is not something that is practiced by people on TV shows that immediately sends people to sleep, but a treatment therapy that has a far broader reach with positive results.
Weight loss hypnotherapy is used in a range of weight-related treatments such as binge eating and bulimia, but also helps treat trigger symptoms such as anxiety.
Below are the ten top reasons to use weight loss hypnotherapy as an alternative option or in support of a calorie controlled diet.
Hypnosis fundamentally changes your mind-set towards food.
Hypnosis therapy works by placing educative suggestion into the recipient’s subconscious with the sole aim of changing that person’s habits. When using this for weight loss, your therapist will change the way you focus on food, portion size and your trigger points.
It makes you not want to eat extra food or treats.
The mind conditioning that weight loss hypnotherapy provides allows you to transition away from snacking or treating yourself to the usual cakes, sweets or chocolates that ruin your balanced diet. Hypnotherapy works for weight loss by retraining the brain to visualise your ideal future weight and body shape. This then acts as a catalyst and built-in motivator.
Eating the right foods becomes automatic.
The power of hypnotherapy will enable you to work towards choosing the right foods upfront, not relying on fad diets, binge eating or relying on sweet or takeout-food meals.
It motivates you to feel good about eating less.
Hypnotherapy will enable you to choose the right portion size for your meals without the afterthought of being hungry again. Incorrect portion sizes are one of the largest contributors to weight gain..
Less food satisfies you more.
By reducing your portion size and effectively your calorie intake, you will see a reduction in your weight. You will find that eating smaller portions not only satisfies you, but also makes you feel better about yourself.
It promotes an overall change in mind-set that includes a motivation for regular physical exercise
Many of my own clients first come for a change in mind-set towards food. Once they find that they have achieved the mental outlook that a positive approach to food can achieve, a natural progression to sports or the gym soon follows and their confidence around their weight loss grows.
It replaces the old cycle of thinking, with a new confident and positive “can do” attitude
Many people who undertake hypnotherapy, do so unsure of what the results will be. There are no guarantees with hypnotherapy as much as there are no guarantees with a diet plan. Results will vary from person to person.
However, we consistently see patients using weight loss hypnotherapy very successfully, and they break their old cycle of thinking and develop a “can do” attitude without being forced into it.
It makes losing weight easy by rewiring the subconscious mind.
Weight loss hypnotherapy is designed to get your subconscious mind to have already made the decision to eat healthy, to take the correct portion size and the correct foodstuffs, and it promotes a good feeling when you do all of that.
Rewiring the subconscious mind is a powerful tool for weight loss and many other habits treated by hypnotherapy.
Less is more becomes the new mind motto.
Weight loss hypnotherapy enables you to accept that less is more. By this we mean when you first choose the correct portions size mentally, but view the plate as typically far smaller than you are used to, it won’t feel different or awkward or create a mind-set of thinking “that isn’t enough”.
The old “finish your plate” mentality is replaced with “I don’t have to finish my plate”; your appetite is fundamentally lowered on a long-term basis.
As well as portion size, overeating is another form of self-abuse when it comes to controlling our weight. Weight loss hypnotherapy enables the patient to transition away from an “I see, I eat” mentality to a more controlled way of eating that responds to the body telling you it’s full.
Who is weight loss hypnotherapy for?
Weight Loss Hypnotherapy is not for everyone. Results aren’t uniform and they depend on the person involved. Will power, desire, approach and need will play a part in your outcome, but nonetheless, you should give hypnosis serious consideration.
