I’ve been on several diets, managed to lose the weight and then gain the weight straight back. I’d got to a state where my weight wasn’t dropping anymore but I couldn’t find any more time to exercise with working full time. I was speaking to a friend who had suggested weight loss hypnosis and thought I’d give it a go as what had I got to lose.
I was very surprised; it wasn’t about cutting out the fat or not eating that piece of cake but training myself to stop eating when I was full.
At first it was difficult to get my head around it but after 4 sessions I am now automatically not cooking large portions so the temptation is not there to keep eating until it’s all gone and the biggest change of all is if there is any left then I throw it away; I don’t need to eat it for the sake of eating it.
I still exercise and eat healthily but I find it much easier at meal times and when eating out to stop once I am full and often don’t order as much food as I used to.
I have found hypnosis very helpful and retraining my brain has got me over another hurdle in my weight loss journey.*
Hypnotherapy was not at all what I was expecting. I did not feel like I was in a trance or spaced-out; just a complete relaxing experience where I could feel the subliminal messages having an impact. After just my first session I could see a real difference, not just in the way I looked, but also in my eating habits and attitude. Having been in the habit of eating the wrong foods at the wrong time for the best part of my life, at the age of 67 I wanted to start living healthier in order to live a longer and fuller life.
Due to my previous lifestyle and bad eating habits, I suffered from poor digestion, heartburn and low energy, all contributing towards a health scare that lead to me having my gall bladder removed. Nicola, the helpful and friendly counsellor and hypnotherapist at Therapy Services, helps guide you through every step and I couldn’t be happier with the service and results. After visiting Therapy Services I now feel I am on the road to a healthier and fuller life.*
Switch my mind off from troubled thoughts…
My life was at a standstill and everyday was filled with anxiety, no confidence, no self-belief and so much more that it’s hard to explain. After revisiting many past traumatic experiences and lying them to rest, finally I’m able to move on with my life on the path I was meant to be. It wasn’t easy at first but instead of dragging experiences around with me each day, I managed to put them away in the past where they belong and not in the here and now.
Hypnotherapy has given me the ability to keep myself calm and to find an inner peace and having the CDs at home helps me feel connected in times of stress.
My sleeping is now as if I were a child again, with no cares and all the techniques that I’ve learned help me to switch my mind off from troubled thoughts.
I know that there is always a special place for me in my subconscious where I can go in terms of trouble and that makes me feel safe.*
Great support and advice…
I thought turning to a bereavement counsellor, after the loss of my Mum made me a failure. Now I realise that identifying the problem and dealing with it is the first step to a better future. It was great to hear throughout my sessions that what I was feeling was normal and I was going through the grief process. I have been given several coping strategies and I can’t thank Nicola enough for her support and advice.*
