Can hypnotherapy help me lose weight & keep it off for good?

With delicious and mouthwatering foods just around every corner, it’s difficult to stay away from cravings. Most of us have a negative body image and want to lose some extra pounds. Losing weight can be a daunting task. If you have tried losing weight and failed, you will know how depressing it can be. You might have been a victim of the ‘yo-yo dieting’ which is a cycle of dieting, over-eating, feeling bad about yourself and then dieting all over again. Does this sound familiar?

One therapy that is gaining some popularity is hypnosis for weight loss. Hypnosis in Leicester has been quite successful. Let’s take a look at what hypnosis is and how it can help you lose weight and keep it off.

What is hypnosis for weight loss?

While weight loss diets reduce the amount of fatty and sugary foods from your diet, hypnosis for weight loss focuses more on how you feel about what you eat and how much you eat. For example, when on a diet, you might eat a salad and resist the urge to eat your favourite burger, but under hypnotherapy, you will feel good about consuming that salad since it is a healthier option. It might be difficult to imagine saying no to your favourite burger and eating a salad instead, but positive hypnotic suggestions do change your patterns of thinking. You feel inclined towards a healthier lifestyle.

How does it work?

People have many misconceptions about hypnotherapy. Hypnosis is not about a therapist getting you under some charm and making you do things you would not normally do. You remain in complete control throughout the session. Here is what normally happens in hypnotherapy sessions for weight loss:

First, your therapist makes you relaxed using certain relaxation techniques.
By helping you get into a daydreaming mode, the therapist gets access to your unconscious mind where your deep desires and instincts lie.

The hypnotherapist then uses calming words and well-planned questions to find out about the reasons of your over-eating and gives you some positive techniques and suggestions for healthy eating.

As the sessions progress, you find ways to replace unhealthy eating habits with healthier ones and thus, reduce weight.

How does hypnotherapy help in keeping the weight off?

Hypnosis for weight loss is a process that takes time. The reason it works in keeping your weight off is that it changes behaviour and thought processing patterns. After hypnotherapy, you form a positive relationship with food and exercise. It makes you feel good about your body which helps you in continuing the good practices learnt during hypnotherapy. As you are happy with your healthy diet, you do not feel emotionally unstable and that will keep you away from unhealthy habits in the future as well.

Hypnosis in Leicester has become one of the most successful therapies in weight reduction. Considering its incredible results, you should absolutely give it a try. You will be amazed at how effective hypnotherapy can be for losing weight.
