Hypnosis for weight loss
Hypnotherapy for weight loss in London, EC2
If you’re reading this then it is likely that you have tried and failed in previous attempts to lose weight, whether that be through dieting, NLP, slimming aids or exercise. The reason for this persistent failure to lose weight (and more importantly, keeping it off) is simple: your subconscious mind does not want you to lose weight. It may be that you require food for emotional comfort, or for support when you’re stressed or anxious. It may be that your subconscious has a need to sabotage you and prevent you from being in control and looking your best. Whatever your subconscious is trying to achieve through your overeating and comfort eating, it will continue to override your efforts to lose weight since this is the most dominant part of your mind.
So how can weight loss hypnotherapy help? Most weight loss hypnotherapy methods aim to suppress or change your eating habits without addressing the cause behind your unhealthy relationship with food. This also includes conventional methods of weight loss hypnosis, such as Gastric Band hypnotherapy and NLP. They use instructions and suggestions to attempt to persuade or convince the subconscious to change its approach to eating. However, if there is a core subconscious belief that you need to be overweight, then any improvements will be short lived. This is why celebrities, such as Lily Allen, will report initial success with weight loss hypnotherapy, only for them to regain the pounds some time later. Sadly, any weight loss hypnotherapy method that aims to ‘restrict’, ‘suppress’, or ‘manage’ cravings and weight gain can only bring short-term, temporary benefits. Furthermore, if you force your body to suppress what it believes is essential or necessary, then it is likely to create some other reaction or symptom in its place. In our clinic, we have seen a number of cases where previously ‘managed’ overeating has manifested into phobias, anxiety disorders and depression.
So how can hypnosis help me lose weight permanently and safely?
Lesserian™ curative hypnotherapy is a gentle, logical and effective method that works WITH the subconscious, not against it. We must first find out *WHY* you can’t lose weight naturally.
Have you ever wondered why some people are able to enjoy eating without obsessing about food or putting on weight? Why they don’t feel compelled to use food as an emotional crutch or why they don’t experience cravings to binge on sweets, chocolate or carbs? If you have to battle against these instinctive urges, then you will never be able to lose weight permanently.
If there is no longer any cause, there can no longer be an effect.
Lesserian™ curative weight loss hypnotherapy asks the subconscious why it *needs* you to gain weight / overeat / obsess about food. Once that subconscious need has been identified, using logic we can help to re-examine the mistaken information that lies behind it. As long as the misinformation exists, so will your weight issue. Once your subconscious believes, rather than being told, that losing weight is in your best interests, then it will actively enable you to do so FOR GOOD.
How does Lesserian™ curative hypnotherapy work?
Hypnosis itself is an enjoyable, natural state of relaxation that we all enter into everyday. It’s like daydreaming at school; aware that the teacher is talking but not paying attention to what they are saying. So whilst your conscious mind is relaxed, the subconscious takes over and becomes more heightened and receptive. All hypnotherapists utilise this state, but it is the way in which it is used that is so different. Lesserian™ curative hypnotherapists use hypnosis not to suppress, but to correct. We treat the problem at the root source so that it can’t come back. The most effective way to resolve your weight problem completely and permanently, is to resolve what’s causing it: if there is no longer any cause, there can be no effect.
Lesserian™ curative hypnotherapy is distinguished from all other forms of weight loss hypnotherapy primarily by its use of logic. The hypnotherapist approaches each person without theories or preconceptions – except for one – that the answer to your weight issue lies only within your own subconscious mind. With curative weight loss hypnotherapy there is no need to suppress or manage your weight problem or eating habits. By helping to resolve and correct the root cause, you can lose the weight naturally without any effort and all related symptoms can automatically fade away, until eventually your problem with weight and food is nothing but a vague and distant memory.
With Lesserian™ curative weight loss hypnotherapy you will not be required to relive any traumatic or upsetting event. All you will feel is beautifully relaxed. To find out more about how The Lesserian™ Method works, please click here.
Lesserian™ Curative Hypnotherapy Trademark
Over the years many practitioners have incorporated the word “Curative” when describing their treatment, despite providing more basic methods of hypnotherapy. Due to concern over the confusion that was being caused by this, the trademark “Lesserian™ Curative Hypnotherapy ” was registered to mark the difference. The name “Lesserian™” Curative Hypnotherapy is therefore protected by law and denotes the method of treatment that requires the understanding of how people create their problems, which is the necessary first step on the path to correcting the cause of, and resolving, a symptom / condition. Only hypnotherapists licensed as Lesserian™ are qualified to use this technique.
