Hypnosis for Weight Loss

Hypnotherapy to lose weight

Many people who come here to lose weight or for help to change eating habits are already convinced that it is really hard to achieve lasting success with that.  This is because they have been trying to do it the hard way: through dieting and conscious efforts (willpower).  So they are genuinely astonished to find that hypnotherapy is both effective and effortless.

Word of Mouth

Diets are heavily promoted through advertising and magazine features because the dieting industry is big business. By contrast, most of my new clients have heard about me through word of mouth - the best recommendation there is! Only today I received an email from a lady who came for a session a couple of months ago:

"Hello Chris, I came to see you at the end of July, and had a session to help me with weight loss. I was also a little concerned about the amount of coffee I was consuming... I am pleased to say I have not had a cup of coffee since my visit!! I still enjoy the smell when others have it and don't mind making coffee for others, but I am definitely not tempted to have any myself. I have also stopped eating chocolate, biscuits and cakes - which to me and everyone who knows me is a miracle! None of this requires any willpower whatsoever!"

Not a Miracle

That message is typical of the reactions I get from new clients but it is not really miraculous at all. The impulse to eat a cake doesn't come from the cake, it comes from a part of the brain that doesn't know that cakes are fattening.  Only your conscious mind has been told about that, so the Subconscious is blissfully unaware of it.  So I simply explain to the Subconscious what the problem with cakes is - and hypnotherapy is the only way that can be done, by the way - then it stops sending the impulse to buy or eat cakes. Or drink coffee. Or smoke cigarettes, or eat chocolate, or pour a third glass of wine.  You see, there are many nuisance impulses we can remove this way, with immediate effect!

Once there is no further impulse to repeat the habitual behaviour, no willpower is required to fight against that impulse.  Simple.

Why go on fighting battles with yourself?  Just pick up the phone, and soon you too could be sending me a message like the one above. That lady is steadily losing weight and none of it will go back on - they can't promise you that at Weightwatchers or Slimming World, can they? And she's enjoying life too, she's not struggling with the issue any more.   more about this

How Many Sessions will I need?

Well, that client only needed one session to get that result. She may decide to have another one later just to keep everything moving along briskly, but two months have gone by and she certainly doesn't require any further help at this stage. Another lady who had five stones to lose ended up having about four sessions altogether, but that was over the course of a year. She lost it all, too. None of that will go back on either.

The misery of dieting is already a thing of the past for these people.  If you like the sound of that, just call us and you can join them!
