Hypnotherapy for weight loss

If you’re reading this, then you’re probably at a point where you feel you’ve exhausted faddy diets and weight loss aids to no avail. Losing weight can be tough on the soul because often it requires more willpower than you can realistically maintain. Once you fail to achieve your goals, you may be left feeling depressed, anxious or hopeless. Once your confidence has been knocked, you enter into a relentless cycle of failed dieting attempts and/or exercise routines.

So how might hypnotherapy help?

Hypnosis is a form of relaxation that helps our subconscious become more alert and receptive. Hypnotherapy utilises this state of relaxation to help make changes at a subconscious level. When you’re failing to lose weight, there’s a conflict going on between your conscious and subconscious mind. You rationally know all the things you should be eating, the correct volume and the amount of exercise required daily, and yet that knowledge isn’t translating to your behaviours. Your instinct to overeat, under-exercise, give in to junk food cravings etc, is so much stronger than your desperation to lose weight. It makes no rational sense at all. This is why you can’t think yourself thin. We need to help your subconscious change its instinctive response to food.

How can you lose weight with hypnotherapy?

Weight loss hypnosis techniques differ considerably. The most common technique is to use persuasive and repetitive instructions to help override your unhealthy eating behaviours and replace them with new, positive messages of healthy eating. When you’re relaxed, your subconscious will be able to take on these suggestions more readily.

Curative hypnotherapy works differently. It recognises that all symptoms originate from somewhere, and thus seeks to answer why your subconscious needed you to gain weight in the first place. Take the analogy of a weed. If we chop it down it will grow back, and you’ll have to keep managing it over time. If instead, you pull it up from its roots, then the weed is gone for good without the chance of it coming back. Curative hypnotherapy works in much the same way. We need to get to the root of why you struggle to lose weight. Learn more about this hypnotherapy technique here.

Curative hypnotherapy for weight loss

Whilst in a lovely, enjoyable relaxed state, your therapist will ask your subconscious questions. By guiding the subconscious to identify, re-examine and then correct the root cause behind your weight loss difficulties, it will then stop resisting your attempts to change. Without a subconscious resistance, you will be able to lose weight effortlessly and naturally.

This isn’t a magical cure, but it’s an effective, logical treatment process that has helped many people lose weight permanently. It’s not a quick-fix, as it can take on average 6-8 sessions to complete treatment, but the aim is to provide long-term change.
