You may be on this page because you have struggled with your weight for years. Perhaps you’ve tried the range of fad diets which are available. You may be at a stage in your life where you detest your body, where you confidence has been severely shaken and you’ve almost given up hope of being able to lose weight and become fitter and healthier. The fact that you’re here shows that you’ve got the desire and motivation to change things, so let’s explore how we can go about that.
Firstly, let’s debunk any myths that people with weight issues lack will power, are lazy or don’t know what to eat. On the contrary, most of my clients know more about nutrition than the average person. Many of them have displayed such huge acts of willpower in the past when it comes to eating – living off starvation diets, eating bland, tasteless food or completely cutting carbohydrates to the point that they feel sick and weak. None of this is desirable, of course, but it does display a huge amount of determination.
But fad diets and rapid weight loss takes its toll on the body, disrupting those signals which tell us when we are really full and hungry, and causing us to gain more weight following each of these attempts. Hypnotherapy allows you to connect with your body, to respond to these signals and to learn to eat in a more natural way.
You may view food as a reward or a comfort, something to make you feel good when you are down or to celebrate and feel better when you are feeling ok. You may please to eat others. You might binge eat because you feel like you are a worthless person. Hypnotherapy can identify why you are eating in particular ways and provide you with the tools to overcome emotional and destructive eating patterns.
Weight loss never takes place in a vacuum. We need to look at your stress levels, sleeping patterns and exercise levels. Are there bigger changes you need to make in your life to become fitter and healthier? Life coaching, in combination with hypnotherapy, can ensure that you stay motivated, make realistic and achievable goals and look at the bigger picture.
For some people, particularly those with larger amounts of weight to lose, fitting a virtual gastric band may be an effective option. This helps you to imagine that you have had a gastric band fitted and limits the amount of food you can eat at any time. I am a licensed HypnoBand practitioner and offer virtual gastric band treatment but I suggest that the band is fitted within the context of four sessions which allows us to look at all the emotional reasons behind your eating and identify any ways in which you might be blocking your weight loss attempts.
Weight loss sessions include:
- Nutritional information
- Food diary monitoring
- Exercise information
We will firstly set realistic, helpful goals that are going to work for you. Simply saying, ‘I want to be slim’, doesn’t motivate most people for very long. We will look at all those wonderful changes which are going to take place in your life as you embark on your weight loss journey and make sure they keep you motivated asking the way. We will then look at what type of eater you are – are you driven by emotional eating, binge eating or do you mindlessly graze throughout the day? Whatever your pattern, we will develop a programme to help you change the way you eat for ever.
