Hypnotherapy can be an amazing tool to assist you on your weight management journey. Whether you would like to lose a few pounds, a few stone, maybe you would just like to have a better relationship with food and exercise? Or, in the case of more complex conditions like bulimia and anorexia your goal may be to gain weight. What ever it may be Solution Focused Hypnotherapy could be for you.
For us to be able to achieve our ideal weight, we need to refocus on our relationship with food. Hypnotherapy does not apply the usual focus on food. Instead we concentrate on achieving a result.
Losing weight for some people can be fairly easy but for a lot of us it can be a battle that lasts a life time. Most of us will have tried one or two fad diets over the years (me included) but we tend to find that when we start to eat 'normal' again all the weight, and more, creeps back on, this can be exhausting and leaves us in the grip of a vicious circle. Hypnotherapy for weight loss has huge benefits - it can help you lose weight long-term (no more fad diets) by changing your mindset and addressing the core of the problem with your eating habits. Unfortunately though, hypnotherapy isn’t a magic wand; you will need to make some changes to your eating and exercise habits. With full commitment and some will power hypnotherapy will give you the confidence, motivation and support you need in making those changes to achieve the correct mindset to maintain your ideal weight for life.
Solution focused hypnotherapy will help you to reduce your stress levels, studies have proven this is the best way and most effective way to lose weight. When we are stressed we produce too many stress hormones like cortisol. Too much cortisol impacts on our leptin levels. Studies have shown that an absence of leptin in the body can stop the signals to our brain to tell us when we are full, therefore we over eat and gain weight. Cortisol can also reduce your blood sugar levels making us crave sugary, fatty foods.
