Achieve Weight Loss With Hypnotherapy in Brighton*

The Conway Practice - Hypnotherapy for weight lossIf you have set your self unrealistic targets to lose weight rapidly before an event or a special occasion you are likely to recognise the fact that crash or fad diets simply don’t achieve the results you’ve hoped for in the longer term. Your life may have become a cycle of yo-yo dieting, with short periods of abstinence followed by over-indulgence.

Hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice in Brighton takes an holistic approach to weight management and will help you to appreciate why you have a negative relationship with food.* Overeating can be a result of being scolded as a child for not clearing your plate and you may now subconsciously feel that you will upset the feeder if you don’t eat all the food being offered. These familial eating traits are frequently carried through to adulthood, continuing a negative and unhealthy eating pattern. During hypnosis Jonathan will help you to re-evaluate your self-belief with the understanding that by eating less food than everyone else at the table, no one will think badly of you.*

Compulsive eating is habitually consuming food when you’re not actually hungry.

This may be through boredom when your automatic response is to reach for a snack simply to pass the time. You may find that you eat compulsively as a means of self-reward and comfort when you are feeling lonely or are anxious or angry. Hypnotherapy can help you to recognise true hunger from emotional hunger and to enable you to understand how you can eat mindfully and find positive distractions from food.* Relaxation techniques will reduce your stress levels and activate your coping mechanism during difficult situations, without the need to eat for emotional well-being.*

Hypnosis can be very effective in a weight management programme, enabling you to improve your self-esteem, achieve your target and maintain your weight loss.*

Understanding the associated factors of what led you to start smoking can be a good indication of why you find it difficult to break the habit. Perhaps you were influenced by family or friends who were considered as role models and you didn’t want to feel like an outsider. Even though the majority of smokers would admit to it being unhealthy, smoking is still a social habit and often a way to bond with fellow smokers.

How Hypnotherapy in Brighton Can Help With Social Anxiety*

welcomeDoes the festive season fill you with dread, knowing that you will be expected to join in with the celebrations? For some, anxiety can spoil what should be an enjoyable time spent with friends and family, ranging from shyness to fear when faced with a social situation. So how can hypnotherapy help with social anxiety?* During sessions in hypnosis at the Conway Practice, Jonathan will sensitively reveal the core issues which trigger negative feelings.*

This problem is often related to a fear of being poorly judged and considered as the outsider within a group. You may be able to trace back to a particular incident which has left a negative imprint stored within your subconscious mind. However much you may wish to socialise with others, you may be reliving the same feeling
of a bad experience in the past and expect it to happen again. Recognising how you felt at the time and how you can now release and erase these feelings can be achieved through hypnotherapy.*

Social anxiety is often a combination of phobias. Agoraphobia for example manifests as a fear of being away from what you consider to be your safe place. You may be afraid that if you are not in control, you will be trapped and unable to leave if you wish to. Even if you are with people that you know, you might still be worried that you will say the wrong thing and be ridiculed in front of others and that a feeling of mild anxiety may turn into full blown panic. Whereas for some, an adrenalin surge is experienced as excitement, for others unable to manage their stress levels it could be felt as physical and emotional panic.*

Social anxiety is often a result of low self-esteem and Jonathan will help you to gain greater confidence and self-belief, enabling you to approach social situations in a relaxed state of mind.* Hypnotherapy can help you to look forward to socialising with others, opening up new friendships and opportunities.*

A fad or a crash diet isn’t the solution as it won’t be sustainable in the long term and bad eating habits with simply return.

Jonathan will show you relaxation and breathing techniques which can be followed whenever you need to reduce your stress levels, avoiding the temptation to turn to unhealthy, high calorie food.*

Help to Control Your Weight With Hypnotherapy*

The Conway Practice - Hypnotherapy for weight lossIf you are finding it difficult to control your weight, you first need to understand what is triggering a need to overeat or to be attracted to the wrong foods. Hypnotherapy for weight loss addresses the various reasons why food has become a negative issue in your life, helping you to resolve what may have been a long term struggle to lose weight and to maintain the weight loss.*

If you were to keep a diary you would no doubt find that your poor eating habits follow a distinct pattern. You may eat through boredom when you’re looking for stimulation and when this happens to be provided by food, often of the unhealthy and fattening variety, it may well give you a feeling of self-reward and briefly make you feel better. If you are trying to lose weight however, this lift in spirits is likely to be swiftly followed by a feeling of guilt or regret. Your relationship to food may have been formed very early in life and much depends on the eating habits within the family home. You might find that you now eat for comfort to satisfy your emotional hunger when you’re not actually physically hungry.

Dieting is often something of a roller coaster ride with highs rapidly followed by lows, leaving you disheartened when you’ve failed to achieve the weight loss you had hoped for. If you have low self-esteem you may become easily discouraged and feel that if you don’t like yourself, others will also think less of you despite their reassurances. Hypnotherapy for weight loss can be extremely effective by helping you to recognise how misguided you are in assessing your worth.* Do you overeat due to loneliness or when you are stressed and anxious? While you are in a relaxed stated of hypnosis, you will be able to bring your true feelings to the surface that may have remained deeply buried over a long period of time.*

During hypnotherapy sessions at the Conway practice, Jonathan will take the time to talk to you about any personal issues that may be inhibiting your attempts to manage your weight.* You will be able to look at food differently and have a far more positive and healthy approach to your eating habits, putting you back in control both physically and emotionally.*

Help to Overcome a Fear of Public Speaking with Hypnotherapy*

confidenceDo you have a dread of speaking in public? A fear of public speaking is one of the most common phobias and can affect people in both their professional and personal life. Stage fright is one form of this, where an experienced performer can be overcome with nerves when faced with an audience. However many may not be aware that for some, even giving a presentation on a one-to-one basis can be a stressful experience.

Hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice can help you to overcome your public speaking anxiety by addressing the reasons behind your fear.* You may be able to trace these negative feelings back to your school years when you were afraid you may be ridiculed by your peers or chastised by the tutor for giving a wrong answer in the classroom. These memories can be stored in your sub-conscious, surfacing whenever you find yourself in a situation where others will be listening to what you have to say. You may be so concerned that something will go wrong and you will be judged badly, you do everything possible to avoid making any speeches, including job interviews or delivering a presentation where you feel you will appear incompetent. For anyone who trying to cope with this phobia, even social celebrations can trigger anxiety when they are expected to give a wedding speech or address the guests.

While you are relaxed during hypnosis and your mind is in a receptive state, Jonathan will help you to identify the root source of your anxiety that the conscious mind may have easily forgotten.* These buried thoughts are likely to surface as a ‘flight or fight’ response, with a surge in adrenalyn causing uncomfortable physical reactions including a racing heart beat and shallow breathing. When we speak of words ‘drying up’ this actually relates to a dry mouth as a common nervous reaction before giving a speech or a presentation in front of others.

Hypnotherapy can enable you to make positive changes in managing this stress overload, learning improved communication skills and developing increased confidence.* You will be able to conquer your discomfort of public speaking, release old fears and visualise a positive response to your words and opinions.*

How to Break the Habit of Smoking with Hypnotherapy*

hypnosis to stop smokingIt’s not uncommon for smokers to believe that the only obstacle preventing them from giving up smoking, is the addiction to nicotine.* In reality, although nicotine is a very addictive substance, the withdrawal symptoms are relatively short-lived whereas the actual habit of smoking is often more difficult to break.

Hypnotherapy sessions with Jonathan at the Conway Practice provide a completely safe and natural help to stop smoking. The reasons why you first became a smoker and why you are now ready to stop are important factors in determining how your goal to quit can be achieved and maintained. Lifestyle and family are often very significant and Jonathan will discuss how outside influences may be preventing you from breaking the habit.* Although smoking may have become generally more anti-social, if you are spending time with other smokers as soon as someone lights up you may unconsciously mirror their action and immediately feel the need for a cigarette. This is often why adolescents living in an environment where parents or older siblings are smoking, are motivated to follow suit.

Lighting a cigarette becomes an automatic habit, triggered in certain situations and undermining any resolve you may have to stop smoking.* During hypnosis you will become aware of these triggers and how you can manage them effectively without the need for a cigarette.* If you smoke to relieve anxiety, hypnotherapy can help to reduce your stress levels with relaxation techniques and self-hypnosis you can use whenever you are feeling anxious.*

Regardless of how long you have been addicted to the habit, a smoking cessation programme with hypnotherapy will enable you to visualise yourself as a non-smoker, increasing your willpower to meet the challenge and make positive changes in your life.*
