For example - on a diet you might eat a carrot and wish you were eating a carrot cake, but with hypnotherapy you can learn to enjoy the carrot and not give that cake a second thought.
It might be hard to imagine a world where you'd happily turn down your favourite food for something healthier, but with certain weight loss hypnotherapy techniques it may be possible to change your thinking patterns and gain control over cravings in a way that doesn't depress you.
The aim of hypnotherapy for weight loss is to promote and embed a feeling of confidence about your body, change any negative or impulsive thoughts about eating and help you to develop a mind-set that allows healthy eating and an appropriate level of exercise for you.
The weight management programme that I use is typically 6 to 8 sessions initially a week apart and then spaced at increasing intervals until we reach a point where sessions are perhaps 6 months apart.
As you will see from this I do not offer a 'quick-fix' solution like the so called "gastric-band hypnosis". My Hypnotherapy for weight loss programme is about helping you to develop changes in your responses to food and eating.
By working together on this journey our aim will be to promote and develop a calm and relaxed attitude towards the permanent life-style changes that are the path to improved health and emotional well-being.
This is certainly not a definitive list and any concerns you may have about weight-related health issues should first be discussed with your GP or other appropriate medical professional.
