I think we can all agree that weight management begins with our mindset. Although many of us already know what we need to do to manage our weight, we still find it a challenge to actually do it. We attempt diet after diet, we make some progress, then we fall off our metaphorical weight-loss wagon and end up back at square one again. It’s a frustrating cycle and a constant 3 steps forward 2 steps back. To make it worse we are really hard on ourselves for it. Does this sound familiar?
In Solution Focused Hypnotherapy for weight management, we begin by helping you to understand how your brain and mind work in relation to your weight management, and how your mind ultimately affects how successful you will be in your weight loss goals. You will learn how the conflict in your mind of what you should do, and what you actually end up doing, can be stopped. I will help you to change your patterns of thinking, create positive achievable solution-focused goals, regain control, and get back on track. So you can enjoy the weight management journey feeling positive, confident, and knowing that this time you will achieve your goal, and maintain it.
Hypnotherapy is a type of talking therapy. It is a combination of Psychotherapy and hypnosis. Psychotherapy on its own is extremely beneficial and its effects are enhanced by the application of Hypnosis, which enables the subconscious mind to make positive changes. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is very much a collaborative process and it is important to understand that change happens because you want it to.
Hypnotherapy is not a magic wand for weight management, but having the knowledge and understanding of why you keep repeating these patterns of behaviour is a big step forwards. Understanding why ‘diets’ don’t work long-term, and why we need to reduce stress, make behavioural changes, and create new and healthy habits, is essential in moving forwards and implementing the necessary long-term changes for your weight management journey.
In Solution Focused hypnotherapy, because we don’t focus on the problem, we take the emphasis (and the pressure) away from diet, exercise, and weight. Instead, we help you to focus on feeling good and how you will achieve that. If you feel good you are more likely to make better food choices and feel more motivated to exercise, and ultimately more likely to achieve your goals.
