Weight Management

Current statistics show that today, around 63% of all UK adults are overweight and that around half of these are living with obesity. It is undoubtedly true that losing weight can be a challenge, both physically and mentally. Many people spend years yo-yoing between drastic crash diets and regaining all the weight they lose – and more.

In order to change your life outside, you must first change inside.

So why is it so hard to succeed with long term weight loss? Being overweight doesn’t happen overnight, it happens gradually over time and often, people are not aware of the gradual increase until they are experiencing health issues resulting from being overweight or obese.

Weight issues can also often be the symptoms of anxiety, stress, depression and low self esteem. We are particularly likely to make poor food choices when we are tired, stressed or anxious. Very often, our own brain will actually be working against us.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is an evidence-based approach to weight management that is supported by neuroscience. The way that our brains work, as well as our habitual ways of thinking shape our often poor food choices. Our brains also regulate that food intake – dictating how much fat we store for example. The original, primitive part of our brain does not understand dieting, so when we diet our primitive brain reacts by assuming that there is a famine looming and will encourage us to reach for high energy foods and to build our fat reserves.

Hypnotherapy can help you understand how your brain works and the way that you think about things, whether that’s food or any other aspect of your life. It is possible to work with your brain to alter unhelpful reactions and patterns of behaviour to ones that are in-line with your long term health goals. This is NOT yet another diet! This is more about helping you to change the way you think and feel, so that you are able to take those small positive steps that can lead to big changes over time.

Hypnosis will also help you reduce anxiety and stress, as well as re-building your confidence and self-esteem, so that you can keep taking those consistent small steps that will lead to positive long-term change.
