Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss
Hypnotherapy can provide relief and assistance with many of our day-to-day challenges, including weight loss. Hypnotherapy for weight loss has proven to be very effective, and can set you on the path to a happier, healthier version of yourself.
How Does Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss Work?
Hypnotherapy for weight loss is not like other weight loss activities or techniques, such as diets, exercise schedules or special teas; through hypnotherapy, you have the power to change your perception of food and of eating and promote healthier habits within your subconscious to make better choices regarding food. This is why the key to successful hypnotherapy is being open and willing to change your lifestyle - you must have the right mindset and attitude regarding the changes you want to make to your life.
Weight loss hypnotherapy is simply hypnotherapy and hypnosis that will focus on your eating habits and your perception of food. Hypnotherapy and hypnosis makes use of abilities you already posses. This is because the hypnotic state, or 'trance state', that you enter into during a hypnotherapy session should already be familiar to you: have you ever driven a car somewhere you regularly visit and 'zoned out'? That zoned out state is similar to the state you enter into during hypnosis. Hypnosis is a natural approach that uses the tools you already have to help you make the changes in your life that you want to.

Can Hypnotherapy Really Help with Weight Loss?
The simplest answer - yes! Hypnotherapy has proven to be a helpful and effective method of losing weight, managing food cravings, controlling what you eat and promoting healthier food choices.
When trying to lose weight, it can be extremely difficult to overcome the obstructions in your mind that are preventing you from losing weight or achieving the weight you want to be. It can be stressful to stick to diets or rigid exercise programmes, and certain judgements or fears may get in the way of you forming long-standing, healthy food and eating habits.
This is why hypnosis and hypnotherapy can be so effective for weight loss: by tapping into your subconscious mind, you bypass the analytical part of your mind that does all the thinking, but which can't always make the right decisions because of preconceived ideas, fears or judgements. Hypnotherapy engages your subconscious mind, allowing you to be more willing to make the healthy changes you need to in order to achieve your weight loss goals. This part of your brain has a major influence over your habits and behaviours, which is why it's the part of the brain necessary to make positive changes!
Does Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss Work Right Away?
Like any weight loss treatment or activity, hypnotherapy for weight loss doesn't work overnight, and requires commitment from the individual trying to lose weight. You won't start losing weight at the snap of a finger, but you may start to notice changes right after your first hypnosis session.
If you have been struggling with weight loss for some time, and have not seen any improvements when trying different diets or exercises, you may be feeling very negative about yourself and about your body. These negative thoughts and emotions can actually prevent you from losing weight; it's easy to become stuck in a cycle of negative thoughts and behaviours that don't help once you feel you have already tried everything and not seen any change.
Hypnotherapy can be an extremely effective remedy for this. By tapping into your subconscious mind, you can rewire your thoughts, emotions and behaviours to create the life you want for yourself, be that by eating healthier, exercising more, avoiding certain types of unhealthy food or by controlling when and how much you eat. Hypnotherapy allows you to remove the blockages from your mind that are preventing you from making these changes yourself, and allow you to internally motivate yourself to live the way you have always wanted to.

What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a type of psychotherapy. It is a guided form of therapy which makes use of a mixture of extreme concentration, attention, and relaxation to help an individual reach a heightened state of awareness, or a trance. Hypnosis, which is a form of hypnotherapy, is often used to enter into this state of altered awareness, in which an individual can access difficult thoughts, engage with painful emotions or become more open to suggestions that could bring about positive change. There are many benefits of hypnotherapy and, whether used alone or in conjunction with other forms of therapy, it can play a big role in protecting and promoting physical, emotional and mental health.
Online Hypnotherapy for Anxiety
As a tool, hypnotherapy benefits those who struggle with anxiety, nervousness or fear. Relaxation techniques like hypnosis can ease these feelings. Hypnosis encourages the body to reach a natural relaxation response through cues like slow breathing, lowering blood pressure, and instilling an overall sense of well-being.
Online Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss
Hypnotherapy as an aid for weight loss does not act as a replacement for diets or exercise. Instead, it assists with removing mental barriers that prevent weight loss, such as overeating or a fear of exercising. Hypnosis can help change your frame of mind to enable you to handle any weight loss issues better and more easily.
Online Hypnotherapy for Chronic Pain
Anyone dealing with chronic pain understands just how intensely it can affect your day-to-day life. Hypnotherapy can help individuals overcome that by enabling you to cope and deal with your pain. Over long periods of time, hypnosis can effectively aid you in managing your pain.
Online Hypnotherapy for Smoking
Smoking can be an extremely hard habit to kick. Nicotine patches, prescription medications or "going cold turkey" doesn't always help. Hypnosis can help you address your addiction or emotional attachment to smoking and enable you to replace it with a more healthy or productive habit.
Online Hypnotherapy for Insomnia
Hypnotherapy is a beneficial method of dealing with insomnia, sleeplessness and difficulty falling or staying asleep. It can even be a useful technique of dealing with sleepwalking. Hypnosis is a calm, relaxed, trance-like state that can aid you in teaching your body how to relax when it is time to sleep or rest.

Let's Talk Hypnotherapy
What is it costing you to remain stuck in old ways, with bad habits, behaviours, attitudes, negative emotions and thoughts?
Is there something you would really like to do in your life, but something is stopping you from doing it? Maybe you feel stuck and can’t move into better circumstances, or you struggle to break unwanted habits and behaviours? Whatever it is, you are probably using your conscious mind when contemplating what you want to achieve and are thinking of a reason why you can’t do it or achieve it!
Instead ask yourself, “What is the feeling that is stopping me from achieving this?”
And the reason I ask you to consider the feeling is because your emotions will always beat your logic.
We are either motivated to accomplish something based on feelings of confidence, belief, courage - all those wonderful, empowering, feel-good emotions that push us towards getting what we want. On the other hand, we can be demotivated and move away from something because we feel fear, rejection, failing, of not being good enough, or hurt and pain from past experiences - all these are negative emotions, beliefs and influences are disguised as what is keeping us safe and secure, but in reality are actually self-sabotaging behaviours and thoughts that can control us and prevent us from reaching our full potential and achieving our goals and aspirations.
Hypnotherapy, together with Matrix Therapy, is a powerful way to rewire your subconscious mind. Imagine shifting your beliefs, thoughts, attitudes, feelings and decisions to drive you towards things you want, easily and effortlessly, so you can experience new ways of being and have the success and happiness you desire.
If this is something you want for your life, hypnosis is the key to achieving it.
Hypnosis can seem scary – the unknown always is. In reality, hypnosis is a tried and tested therapeutic technique that has changed hundreds of thousands of lives.
I hear comments from people saying, “Hypnosis is mind control”, and my response is to ask “OK, which one do you think is being controlled?” Their response is usually, “Oh, what do you mean?”
The fact is we have two minds, a conscious mind and a subconscious mind. What’s the difference? The conscious mind is your logical thinking mind, your subconscious mind is your feeling mind. Think about it, what drives you more? A thought or a feeling?
Hypnosis is not mind control because you are not unconscious, you have not lost control and you are not asleep. On the contrary, hypnosis is where you can actually gain power and control over your emotions and behaviours to help you achieve a better future.
A common misconception is, “Hypnosis will put me to sleep”, and the truth is, it actually wakes you up to the potential to become the best version of yourself that you can be but didn't know how. What are the possibilities for you to BE the person who naturally creates everything you have ever wanted to do and have?
I have clients who snore during hypnosis yet as soon as I emerge them, they open their eyes, feeling calm and relaxed and in complete control. How do they snore but remain conscious? This is because, during hypnosis, you enter a deep trance state – something you do all the time! Have you driven to work or home and paid very little attention to the drive itself? Or have you been so absorbed in a movie you lost where you are? That’s a deep trance state and when you are in this state, your conscious critical mind can move to the side and we can tap into your powerful subconscious mind, which is when we can rewire and recode your mind to create the changes you want in your life far more quickly, easily and permanently. I have clients that feel lighter, calmer, weightless, relaxed and who achieve a sense of freedom that they have been trying to achieve for a very long time.
The truth is, we cannot change our life until we change the subconscious programming that we have been running. This is the programming you have been using all your life, the one that was built and developed from a very early age and during your youth which shaped you as a person. Often, this programming is what prevents us from becoming the person we want to be, or from achieving our dreams.
Imagine being able to change the course of your life? To re-write your own programming to feel and be different?
As a Master Life Coach and Hypnotherapist, I take clients back on their timeline, through the memory bank of experiences they have had in their life that is filed in their subconscious - not to change it, because we can’t change the events and experiences we have in the past, but to change and free yourself from the emotional attachment we have to those experiences, to gather the powerful positive resources, the learnings and insights from these events and bring them back to your present self, to use them and empower you to make better decisions to create a life free of struggle, a life where you can feel whole and happy with your authentic self.
I help people heal from their past to change their future and become who they wish to be to have the life they want to live.
