Lose Weight with Hypnotherapy in Highgate*
There are often certain times of the year which trigger a desire to lose weight and to get fit. Apart from the New Year resolutions, Summer days often motivate people into losing the extra kilos that may have been added during the colder months when it’s easier to disguise your body shape under layers of Winter clothing. Losing weight generally proves more difficult than putting it on and fad or crash dieting is rarely the solution.* Hypnotherapy in Highgate at the Conway Practice provides a safe and completely natural way to get your weight back under control.*
Jonathan Conway will discuss the reasons why you want to lose weight and what your personal goal is. You may be focusing on a Summer wedding or a holiday in the sun, or you may simply feel the need to be slimmer and fitter with a healthier lifestyle. During hypnosis Jonathan will help you to understand what causes you to overeat or why you are attracted to the wrong foods which contribute to weight gain.* Do you find that you eat when you are anxious during periods of stress? Comfort eating generally only brings a brief lift of mood, before guilt sets in and a negative relationship with food is established.*
Hypnotherapy in Highgate will help you to manage stress in your life through positive visualisation and relaxation methods.* You may relate to being fed with treats as a child when you were upset and subconsciously food is what you turn to now to make yourself feel better.* Emotional hunger can’t be satisfied with food and Jonathan will coach you in how to handle your cravings by recognising the triggers that may have sabotaged attempts to lose weight in the past.* Perhaps you find yourself eating through boredom and turn to food at certain times of the day without consciously being aware of why you do that.
Sessions with Jonathan at the Conway Practice in Highgate will address the deeper issues of your weight management and help you to increase your willpower to succeed in your weight loss with hypnotherapy, improve your self-esteem and know that everything is achievable if you believe in yourself and what you can accomplish.*

How Hypnotherapy can help you to Quit Smoking in Brighton*
You may ask how can hypnosis be more effective in helping you to stop smoking than any other method you may have tried in the past.* Hypnotherapy has a completely different approach to the problem and looks at the reasons not only why you are smoking now, but why you first became a smoker.* Part of the process will be to identify the reasons you now have for giving up and these can vary from health concerns, to a desire to be better off financially. Hypnotherapy will enable you to visualise how you will feel when you achieve that goal.*
Firstly, you must be fully committed to quitting smoking, not simply due to pressure from family or friends, as during hypnosis you can’t be made to do something that deep down you really don’t want to do.* During coaching sessions at the Conway Practice using hypnotherapy and NLP, Jonathan will take the time to fully understand your lifestyle, including your working environment and personal background, identifying any areas that may be increasing your difficulty to stop smoking.* There may well be certain situations that compel you to light a cigarette and these are frequently found to be triggered by anxiety and poor stress management.*
Of course withdrawal from nicotine can be stressful in itself, but while you are under the state of hypnosis you will be guided in relaxation methods which can be used to reduce your stress levels enabling you to manage all areas of your life with a calmer approach, without the need for a cigarette.* As smoking is also an involuntary habit, your subconscious mind will have to retrain to think as someone who is a non-smoker. Hypnotherapy can assist in establishing the behavioral cues that you associate with smoking, helping you to replace a bad habit with a positive approach to a healthier lifestyle over which you have full control.*

Hypnotherapy can help you to lose weight by uncovering the reasons behind your negative relationship with food that you may not be consciously aware of.*
You may have an issue with a specific type of food that is generally unhealthy and fattening. This might relate back to foods you associate from childhood as giving comfort or reward, compelling to you indulge yourself during times of stress or when you are feeling low. This can result in a cycle of eating to improve your mood, followed by disappointment and guilt that you have broken a resolve to follow a healthy eating regime. Using hypnosis, your subconscious mind can be guided to disassociate yourself from the image of food as a substitute for emotional stability, introducing a new perspective taking control of your dietary habits.*
During coaching sessions with hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice in Harley Street, Jonathan will also review your self-image and how you believe others will perceive you.* If you have low self esteem and lack confidence you may find yourself sabotaging attempts to lose weight without being realising why you are doing it.

Hypnotherapy can help you to make the significant changes that will make a
profound difference to long term weight control.* Whether you are committed to losing weight for health reasons or you have a personal incentive to achieve your target weight loss, hypnotherapy is a completely safe and natural way to guide you towards meeting that goal.*

Help to Stop Smoking with Hypnotherapy in Brighton*
For many smokers who are trying to break the habit, the biggest hurdle can be during times of stress when they feel compelled to reach for a cigarette. For those seeking help to stop smoking with Hypnotherapy in Brighton at the Conway Practice, Jonathan takes a holistic approach to not only the stress factor but all reasons as to why you first began to smoke and why you now find it difficult to give up to become a non smoker.*
It’s unlikely that you simply went out and bought your first packet of cigarettes without first being offered one by friends, or you tried the odd one or two as a teenager when family members were smoking at home. That first purchase however may have set you on a path to addiction in adulthood that is now proving extremely difficult to break. If you started smoking during your formative years, you may well have followed role models; parents, older siblings or others in your circle of friends who you aspired to be like.
Even now, if you spend time with other smokers you may feel that you don’t want to be the odd one out, making it all the more difficult to quit smoking. Hypnotherapy can help you to improve your self-worth and increase your level of confidence, enabling you to socialise without feeling that you need to impress others in order to fit in.* No one will like you less just because because you no longer share a habit.
If you smoke to relax when you are stressed, during hypnotherapy the root cause of your anxiety will be addressed.* You will learn how to manage situations which trigger your need for a cigarette and Jonathan Conway will coach you in deep relaxation methods which you can apply on your own when you need to feel calmer.*
Smoking may have become a ritual, without any conscious thought as to why you smoke at certain times of the day. You may associate lighting a cigarette after a meal, during a work break or social situations. It could be due to boredom and feeling that you need to do something with your hands to keep you occupied.
Of course nicotine is a highly addictive substance but although this actually remains in the system for a relatively short time there is also a psychological addiction to smoking.* The actual habit of smoking is more difficult to break but during hypnosis you can be released from that conditioned response and become indifferent to cigarettes.* You will be able to visualise just how much better you will feel as a non-smoker who has been successful giving up.*

Achieve Weight Loss with Hypnotherapy in Brighton*
Achieving and maintaining your ideal body size, is all about weight control and not about fad dieting where the weight just tends to increase again. During coaching sessions to lose weight with hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice Brighton & Hove, you will appreciate how to maintain a positive change to your eating habits and learn how to stop negative thoughts from bullying you into failure.*
There are many reasons why someone feels the need to eat when they’re not really hungry, or find themselves compelled to eat fattening and unhealthy food. Comfort eating is common, where food is often used as an emotional prop during times of stress or through boredom. This can spiral out of control to the extent that the more someone feels depressed over their weight gain, the more they turn to food to make themselves feel better. Negative behaviour patterns can be addressed with hypnotherapy, turning a fear of failure into motivation. With increased self-belief you will be able to visualise what successful weight loss looks like and focus on your goal.* The deeply relaxed state of hypnosis brings the reasons for the food craving cycles held in the sub-conscious to be brought the surface.* It’s possible that you’ve held suppressed feelings since childhood, when food was given either as a reward or as a form of emotional control, perhaps believing that you would displease your parents if you didn’t finish the meal you’d been given, leaving you feeling anxious now when you’re faced with limiting what you eat.
Hypnotherapy for weight loss is a safe and natural way to help you to untangle your emotional dependence on comfort or binge eating and guide you on how to respond to stress without overeating. Once your attachment to food decreases you will no longer be tormented by a seemingly never ending circle of dieting followed by weight gain.* Hypnotherapy can strengthen your confidence and self-belief, helping you to form healthy lifestyle habits and a positive long term relationship with food.*

How to Give Up Smoking with Hypnotherapy in Brighton*
Why do so many smokers find it difficult to stop? Of course nicotine is well known to be a powerful narcotic, causing addiction and unpleasant withdrawal symptoms, but this is only part of the problem. Hypnotherapy can help you to stop smoking by looking at the reason why you first started to smoke and what now compels you to continue.*
Peer pressure during the teenage years often has a lot to answer for as to why someone is attracted to smoking.* The desire to fit in with friends and appear more grown up can trigger a lifetime habit that is hard to break. Even now you may find that you are more comfortable socially with a cigarette in your hand, especially if you are with other smokers. Before the restriction on tobacco advertising was introduced, one particular brand told us that we’d never be alone if we smoked one of their cigarettes, while other brands featured attractive or celebrity couples smoking together. This implied that a smoker would find it easier to make friends, form relationships and find it easier to relax, leaving false impressions that can remain firmly fixed in the subconscious.*
While under hypnosis at the Conway Practice in Brighton, Jonathan will explore why you want to stop smoking and how you visualise your life will be improved as a non-smoker.* If you find yourself self-sabotaging your attempts to give up, is this due to not valuing yourself highly? Giving up smoking is a crucial step forward in putting your emotional and physical health first and erasing old negative patterns that you may have found difficult to change without help. Hypnotherapy will address any emotional baggage that may be stressful and the root cause of why you smoke when you are anxious.*
You will also learn how to break or the habit of smoking and of lighting a cigarette at certain situations and times of the day.* During hypnosis and NLP coaching you will understand how you are able to re-programme the association and interrupt the pattern, perhaps after enjoying a meal or when you ‘reward’ yourself while on a work break to re-wind after a difficult day. Hypnotherapy can help you to improve your willpower and strengthen your resolve to quit smoking and look forward to a healthier future as a non-smoker.*

The Benefits of Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss*
Imagine how you would feel if you could manage your weight without being a slave to dieting. At the Conway Practice, hypnotherapy for weight loss will help you to understand your reasons for overeating or why you feel compelled to eat the wrong foods.* You may be confused about why you are driven to eat more when you are anxious, lonely or bored. If you are stressed about your size, this may simply cause you to turn to food for comfort, followed by guilt and more stress leaving you in a negative cycle that is difficult to escape from.
Food has a very strong emotional connection and can be a means of showing love. This emotional link will have started from birth with nurturing from parents and your nostalgic recall of your early relationship with food will still be buried deep in the sub-conscious, either positively or negatively.* If someone close to you is a feeder, they will want to show they care by providing food often in abundance, which is difficult to refuse in fear of rejecting their feelings. Sharing food with friends and family is a form of camaraderie and of social bonding and could be called people-pleasing.
You may find that you blame others for your overeating instead of accepting personal responsibility. During hypnotherapy and NLP coaching sessions with Jonathan Conway, your desire to make other people feel comfortable even at your own expense will be discussed.* You will be able to recognise the reasons why you put the needs of others before your own, knowing that you will regret it later.*
Emotional eating for comfort or to alleviate stress may briefly lift your spirits, but it’s essential that the deeper issues triggering these self-destructive compulsions are addressed.* Losing weight with hypnotherapy can help you to take conscious control over your eating habits and prepare you for a lifetime of well-balanced, healthy eating and weight management.*

Help to Quit Smoking with Hypnotherapy in Harley Street
If you are a smoker who is wants to quit the habit once and for all, you may need to change your attitude to how what smoking means to you. Do you view a cigarette as your best friend that you are reluctant to let go, or your worst enemy that you can’t wait to see the last of? At the Conway Practice in Harley Street, during sessions using hypnosis, Jonathan will address the reasons why you smoke and what is now motivating you to stop.*
Hypnotherapy can be very affective as a help to stop smoking and is medication free and completely safe.* Smoking is an involuntary habit and you will find yourself reaching for a cigarette at certain times of the day, during work breaks, after a meal or when socialising for example. You are likely to naturally associate these situations with smoking and they become subconsciously linked. While you are in the deeply relaxed state of hypnosis, Jonathan Conway will guide you through a visualisation, enabling you to understand the trigger points which compel you to light a cigarette and how you can avoid them in the future.
Anxiety is often a major contributor and although smoking is used to reduce stress levels as a form of self-medication, the calming affect is very short-lived. The addiction to nicotine causes withdrawal symptoms and increased cravings, which in themselves are unpleasant and stressful. Using hypnotherapy, Jonathan will approach the underlying cause of your anxiety and guide you in relaxation methods and stress management, changing your reliance on cigarettes as a means of coping.
If you are truly committed, hypnotherapy can help you to stop smoking and to remain a non-smoker.* During hypnosis you will be able to imagine how much fitter and healthier you will feel once you are free of the habit with significant benefits to your lifestyle and improved finances.

Weight Management with Hypnotherapy in Brighton
Many people who seek help to manage their weight with hypnotherapy, do so following failed attempts at dieting which may have been affective in the short term, but are not a lasting solution to weight management.* During sessions in hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice, your relationship with food will be addressed.* There are many reasons why you may find yourself controlled by food, instead of being totally in control over what you eat and when you eat it. Hypnotherapy can help you to understand the trigger to your overeating.*
Of course there is a connection with the choice of food and the affect it has on our weight. A great deal may depend on your parents’ eating habits while you were growing up and the eating routine within the family is likely to continue later in life as this is what is naturally perceived as normal.* A child who is forced to clear everything on the plate whether they feel full or not may well carry this subconsciously into adulthood, eating despite not being hungry.*
Compulsive eating is likely to occur during times of boredom when reaching for a snack becomes an unconscious habit that is hard to break.* Most of us find eating pleasurable and food is frequently used to cheer ourselves up if we’re feeling low or stressed as a soothing self-reward.* Comfort foods however are generally the very ones that are high in fat, sugar and carbohydrates and can all be main contributors to an expanding waistline and weight gain.*
You also may find that you eat to please others in a social situation and feel that if you don’t mirror the eating habits of the those you’re sharing a meal with, they will think less of you, or you will be the odd one out. Even with families, there may be pressure to show that you appreciate the food, by eating everything you are offered. While you are deeply relaxed under hypnosis, Jonathan Conway will help you to become aware of the reasons why you overeat or feel compelled to eat unhealthy foods.* You will be coached in relaxation techniques that you will be able to continue after the sessions whenever you need to reduce your stress levels which would have previously enticed you to reach for food.* You will have greater motivation to control your weight and your self-worth will improve, resulting in long term weight management and a healthier lifestyle.*

Why Hypnotherapy Can Help You to Stop Smoking in Harley Street*
For most people who want to stop smoking, the challenge is generally how strong the personal resolve is for this is be the last cigarette. However much pressure and persuasion others put on you to give up, being free of the habit depends on your own determination to quit.* Hypnotherapy in Harley Street can help you to stop smoking* but as you can’t be forced to do something during hypnosis against your will, you must be ready to make the commitment for your own reasons.
In the same way that you now have a reason to give up smoking, there would have been a trigger to why you started in first place. During hypnotherapy sessions with Jonathan Conway at the Conway Practice in Harley Street, while you are deeply relaxed and your subconscious mind is more open to suggestion, you will be guided to recall the first time you became a smoker.* Perhaps it was during a time of stress and lighting a cigarette whenever you are anxious has become a negative habit which is only calming for a very short time.* Hypnotherapy enables the coping mechanism and the way in which you handle anxiety to be addressed, using deep breathing and anchoring techniques.* This can also help greatly when dealing with the withdrawal affects of the nicotine addiction.*
Stress isn’t the only contributor to why someone smokes. Until TV adverts promoting tobacco were banned in the UK in 1965, the public were conditioned by the media to believe that a cigarette made someone appear more popular and mature. Many teenagers will have tried their first cigarette to join in with their peers and smoking today may still be a means of feeling more confident in social situations. Jonathan Conway will talk through any issues you may have with self-esteem or negative self-image and discuss your reasons for quitting the habit.* You will learn to visualise how much fitter and healthier you will feel as a non-smoker and to understand that positive change is achievable.*
