Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss

It is surprisingly easy to let that extra weight creep on but by the time you realise it and start to do something about it, you’ll know that it can be surprisingly difficult to get the weight back off again! If you’ve tried all the standard measures such as dieting and exercising but they’re just not working for you, why not consider hypnotherapy? Hypnotherapy can work when all else has failed and you’ll be back to feeling like yourself before you know it. Read on for more information.

Barriers to Weight Loss

People can become overweight for a number of reasons but some of the most common include eating too quickly, eating when you’re bored, eating to reward yourself, comfort eating, to clear the plate, and as the result of skipping meals. In order to repair the damage done, you try exercising too much, or going on strict diets but you find that the weight comes back on seemingly as soon as you’ve gotten it off.

These are all negative things that can be overcome using hypnotherapy. The goal of hypnotherapy is to quieten the conscious mind so that your subconscious mind can come to the fore, allowing you to change those deep-seated beliefs that you may not even realise that you have. The hypnotherapist will deeply relax you so that you enter a state of higher awareness, commonly known as the trance state. In this state, you will be more open to suggestions that will help you to affect positive change in your weight loss efforts. Hypnotherapy itself will not cause you to lose weight but it will give you the tools that you need to successfully lose the weight and keep it off yourself.

How Hypnotherapy Can Help You Successfully Lose Weight

Hypnotherapy can help you with losing weight in a number of ways. While you are in the “trance” state, the hypnotherapist will talk with you about the reasons that you may have for putting on weight. For example, you may have been bullied when you were younger and you used food to comfort you. Due to that, food is still what comforts you when things go wrong now and you can put on those sneaky kilos without even knowing. Hypnotherapy will help you to overcome those negative feelings and emotions and clear the obstacles that stand in your way.

Hypnotherapy can help you to improve your self esteem and self confidence. Any subconscious habits that are stopping you from losing weight will also be overcome (a good example is being made to finish your plate when you were younger, even if you weren’t hungry). You will also learn to make weight loss a natural part of your life instead of something that you have to suffer through and struggle to try and achieve. Hypnotherapy can also help you to develop a positive attitude to weight loss and make you more motivated to achieve your goals.
