If you are reading this, you'll know how hard it is to stick to a diet and lose weight. I know I do!
We also know that none of those diets work in the long term anyway. After all, depriving yourself of food goes completely against nature's grain, we need to eat to live and to obtain the nutrients so essential both for health and for life itself. We are also social animals who like to share food with friends and family and denying it on these occasions can cause problems of it's own. We can't just stop eating in the same way we can stop smoking or drinking coffee.
In any case, when calorie intake falls below a certain level, the body goes into starvation mode and when the whole thing comes crashing down, as it inevitably does, we start eating again. The body, thinking the famine is over (remember the subconscious part of the brain evolved in these conditions and still works along these principles to ensure our survival) demands food and so the weight piles on again... until the next time when we decide that "I really MUST get a grip on this!". But now we have another problem... and that is that the harder we try, the more difficult it becomes.
But the good news is that we know why. As long ago as 1922, French pharmacist turned psychologist Emile Coue' declared that "When the imagination and will power are in conflict, are antagonistic, it is always the imagination which wins - without any exception." The imagination is the subconscious mind, the part of the brain which controls our thoughts, feelings, urges and desires and is responsible for the negative self-talk that we often feed ourselves. As Monsieur Coue' (and many others since have) observed, any attempt by the conscious mind to override the subconscious is doomed to failure.
By using hypnosis and other psychotherapeutic techniques, however, we can address the underlying issues such as anxiety, low self-esteem, feelings of low self-worth, inferiority or past conditioning which, amongst others, are often at the core of emotional or over eating, allowing you to build a new, healthy relationship with food and a new, sustainable, healthy lifestyle.
So please ďo get in touch by email, text or phone to arrange a free, no obligation, introductory consultation, I look forward to hearing from you.
"An analysis of five weight loss studies reported in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology in 1996 showed that the "… weight loss reported in the five studies indicates that hypnosis can more than double the effects" of traditional weight loss approaches." and "Two years later hypnosis subjects continued to lose significant amounts of weight". https://hypnosishealthinfo.com/weight-loss/efficacy-research-hypnosis-for-weight-loss/
