Hypnosis has been known to be beneficial in treating many issues, but did you know that Hypnotherapy can help you lose weight and change your eating habits forever? Well it can!
The top three ways hypnosis can be helpful is by:
1. Motivating weight loss and exercise
2. Reprograming eating habits
3. Establishing a plan for weight maintenance
Promoting a Positive Mind-Set:
Many overeaters talk to themselves in a negative way. They tell themselves: “I can’t stop eating” or “I feel hopeless,” or “I’ll be too embarrassed at the gym to exercise in front of other people.” Hypnotherapy helps you replace your internal negative voice with a more positive and self-motivating inner voice.
Hypnosis is, in a way, self-hypnosis. In sessions with my clients, I am providing them mental tools to make the changes within themselves. I help to redirect negative inner talk toward talk that promotes making dramatic changes in your eating habits and toward feelings of well-being.
I can help you feel and think better about yourself by empowering you and by “shaking hands with your subconscious mind.” In order to know who you want to become, it’s important to know yourself better. Wouldn’t it be helpful to know the reasons you are overeating?
Getting Rid of Unhealthy Eating Habits:
Often overeaters can not recognize emotional eating from real hunger. Hypnotherapy can help you access your ability to know when your body really needs to eat, and when it’s your emotions that are eating at you.
We tend to project our emotions on to food. Food can become a God, a lover, a friend, a comforter, etc., and in this role, it can start to control your life. Hypnotherapy begins to let you be in control of food, no longer allowing food to control you. I can help you take back those projections and let food be the inanimate object that it truly is.
Create Results that Last:
Most diets or weight loss programs rely on will power. You punish yourself and then when you stop punishing yourself the weight comes right back on again. That’s no way to live, and it’s certainly not the way to promote a healthy lifestyle. Hypnotherapy gently “redirects” your subconscious mind to develop and maintain healthy eating habits and heal the emotional issues that sabotage your success.
Remember: A healthy mind is the first step towards a healthy – and happy! – body.
