Weight Loss Hypnotherapy

How does hypnotherapy work for weight control? In a nutshell, the answer to this question is: By rewiring your attitude towards food. During hypnosis, the therapist plants certain suggestions in your subconscious mind, such as: "Your hunger is satisfied by eating less and less each day. ... You only feel the need to eat 3 times a day, at meal- time. ... etc., etc." Since your conscious mind is shut down during the hypnotic state, the subconscious readily accepts these suggestions (which during normal waking state you would most likely resist). The seed of these ideas remains planted, like a subconscious program, in your brain. When faced with the 'trigger situation' (food), this subconscious program activates itself and kicks in: Without you even realizing it, it gives you signals of early satiety and disinterest in food. Thereby it consistently decreases your food intake, day after day. Several sessions of hypnotherapy are usually required to enforce these suggestions planted in the subconscious mind. Thereafter, these suggestions continue operating over time, even without being reinforced by hypnotherapy. They become part of your modus operandi (your new brain programming regarding the issues of food and nutrition).

Stop Smoking With Hypnotherapy

With the cost of an average 20-a-day smoking habit now nearly £60 a week (1), if you’re serious about quitting smoking for health or financial reasons, it makes sense to do it properly. The most comprehensive study into methods of quitting, reported in New Scientist Magazine, found that "hypnotherapy enjoys a greater success rate than any other method in helping people stop smoking."  So why does hypnosis work so well? And how is it that you can quit in just a single session of hypnosis, when other methods can take weeks or even months? The reason hypnosis works so well is easy to understand. Smoking, like all habits is controlled by the unconscious part of the mind. Hypnosis helps us access the REM state - nature's optimal learning state - and it is in this state that your deeper, unconscious mind is more open to new ideas and suggestions. When your unconscious is reprogrammed you don't have to try not to smoke; the urge is simply no longer there. Up until now of course, your unconscious mind has been programmed (through years of repetition) with the belief that smoking has done something positive for you. Yes, that’s right, there has been a positive intention to the smoking habit. You might have smoked to help you: relieve stress, boredom or other uncomfortable emotions feel more confident in social situations and fit in with your friends concentrate better control your weight (in other words, smoke instead of eat) give you something to do with your hands. These are all positive intentions. However, there are other, healthier ways to achieve them. Through hypnosis, your unconscious can generate healthy alternative behaviours which you will carry out automatically. In effect, your stop smoking hypnosis session will re-program your unconscious mind to produce the same positive intentions that you believe cigarettes have given you, but in far healthier and normal ways. (The human body was never designed to smoke, thus it is not a ‘normal’ behaviour).

Build Your Self Esteem

Hypnosis is a relaxing and safe process that involves redirecting the attention of both the conscious and subconscious mind. The aim of hypnosis for self- esteem is to identify and challenge patterns of negative thinking. It also encourages positive changes through the power of suggestion. Once you're under hypnosis, a hypnotherapist will present various hypnotic suggestions, visualisations and other techniques. These help to promote positive thoughts, attitudes and beliefs that support a healthy self- esteem.  In the deeply relaxed state of hypnosis, your subconscious is more accepting of suggestions to change. By identifying your problems and goals in an initial conscious enquiry, a hypnotherapist can tailor their suggestions to meet your needs. In the case of hypnotherapy for self-esteem, the primary aim is to encourage self-empowerment and reduce negative self-talk. Thus promoting the development of long- term, healthy self-esteem.

Depression and Hypnotherapy

The aim of hypnotherapy as a type of depression treatment is to target the root cause of the issue and to develop better coping behaviours. In most circumstances you will usually forget or suppress the cause of your depression because of the association with negative feelings. It’s not difficult to forget an event on a conscious level, but it is on a subconscious level. This is why it’s best to confront the issue head on, rather than burying it, which can worsen your depression. Hypnotherapy connects directly with the subconscious mind. Your hypnotherapist will address your perception of the event that has caused you to become depressed with the aim to improve your self- esteem, mood and help you gain your independence back. These are only a few of the many conditions, hypnotherapy can help with. Contact me for more details.
