How Hypnotherapy can Help with Weight Control*
If you are someone who is constantly striving to maintain an ideal weight, you will probably be well aware of how diets may not achieve the long-term results you have been hoping for. Hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice can help you to lose weight by focusing on the reasons behind a negative relationship with food, which may be causing you to overeat or to follow an unhealthy eating regime.*
For many, bad eating habits start from a young age and are often influenced by the dietary routine within the family, leaving you in a lifestyle trap well into adulthood. If you were made to finish everything on your plate even when full, this early conditioning is likely to remain stored in your subconscious mind, with the belief that if anything is left you are wasting good food that may have been lovingly prepared for you. When someone close to you is a ‘feeder’ it may be even more difficult to lose weight, when food is given as a symbolic symbol for caring and it feels disrespectful and ungrateful to refuse the offering. During hypnosis your food-related emotions will be addressed, enabling you to understand that no one will think less of you if only eat the amount you are comfortable with, rather than trying to please others.*
Emotional eating when you are feeling stressed or low will only provide a very brief release and a mood lift is often followed rapidly by a feeling of guilt that you’ve been over-indulgent. Using hypnotherapy Jonathan will help you to reduce your weight by defining a strategy to manage the triggers which weaken your resolve to maintain a balanced and healthy relationship with food.* You will be able to transform any negative thoughts into positive self-talk, increasing your confidence and motivation to achieve your weight loss goal.*

How Hypnotherapy can Help if you Want to Stop Smoking*
Even a long term smoker may reach a point in their life when they want to quit smoking. Quitting however, can prove to be far harder than it was to become a smoker in the first place. The very first seemingly harmless cigarette, can also be the first step towards becoming hooked very quickly not only on the highly addictive substance of nicotine, but also on the habit of smoking.
Hypnotherapy can help you to stop smoking by not only helping you through the uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms, but also by retracing why you began to smoke and why you are now determined to stop.* Influence from peers during the teenage years often plays a major part and can continue to do so even in adult life when it becomes far more difficult to stop smoking if you are surrounded by smokers. Hypnosis however can help to increase your willpower and self-discipline by making personal changes on a deeper level in your sub-conscious mind.*
Although you may believe that you are unable to give up smoking due to the reliance on nicotine, this may well be a false belief. There are certain situations where you are conditioned to not lighting a cigarette; during a flight, in a restaurant or other public places, or out of courtesy when enjoying a meal with non-smokers. You have consciously accepted that you will be able to cope without smoking. During hypnosis Jonathan will help you to visualise what triggers your need to smoke, even when nicotine may no longer be in your system.*
You may reach for a cigarette purely out of habit at certain times of the day, perhaps while on a work break, after a meal, or socialising with friends. Anxiety may also play a significant part in why you continue to smoke. With guidance from Jonathan Conway using hypnotherapy, you will be shown relaxation methods enabling you to reduce your stress levels and to respond more effectively to external stressors as and when they occur in your life.* You will learn how to replace habits when you would normally be tempted to smoke, with positive distractions which will take your mind off any cravings.*
Hypnotherapy to help you stop smoking is completely safe and medication free and effectively works by giving you control to find the inner strength to achieve your goal to become a non-smoker.*

Lose Weight with Hypnotherapy in Harley Street*
For anyone who finds it difficult to control their weight and maintain a size that they feel comfortable with, this may become an issue that eventually dominates their life. It’s common to be tempted by fad diets that promise significant weight loss, often in unrealistically short times, leaving the dieter disillusioned when they fail to achieve their target.*
Hypnotherapy in Harley Street takes a completely different approach by looking at the reasons behind a negative relationship with food, helping to change long term attitudes to why someone may overeat or be drawn to unhealthy and fattening foods.* Much can generally be traced back to earlier life, with family habits and how food was provided in the home. As an example, for anyone who can recall confectionery being de-rationed in the early 1950’s there were celebrations that a long period of perceived ‘deprivation’ had come to an end, with children in particular being encouraged to treat themselves and over-indulge in something that had previously been a limited luxury.
These or similar memories of associating food with reward or comfort remain stored deeply in the sub-conscious and frequently surface when unhappy or distressed, resulting in comfort eating.* Choosing to lose weight can be stressful, resulting in a negative cycle of overeating as a means of responding to emotional hunger meaning that you are more likely to turn to food which you sub-consciously associate with comfort as a child.* If you turn to food when you are anxious or bored, eating can become a distraction to take your mind off what may be missing in your life.
During hypnotherapy sessions at the Conway Practice in Harley Street, Jonathan will help you to discover the triggers to your eating patterns and to understand how you can improve your attitude to food with a far healthier balanced approach.* While in the deeply relaxed state of hypnosis you will learn how to bring suppressed emotions about lack of confidence and self-worth to the surface, not only helping to achieve your desired weight loss, but also to increase your motivation to reach your other life goals.*

Giving up Smoking with Hypnotherapy in Harley Street*
Breaking any habit can not only be challenging but also very stressful, even more so if it’s been part of your life for a considerable time. Smoking is a particularly difficult habit to break as the body also has to adjust to the physical symptoms of nicotine withdrawal. Hypnotherapy can help you to stop smoking safely and naturally without the use of medication or the need to replace a cigarette with tobacco substitutes.*
During hypnotherapy sessions at the Conway Practice in Harley Street, Jonathan Conway will help you to recognise why you have found it so difficult to quit smoking and how the habit first started.* You may have become a smoker quite unintentionally; perhaps accepting a cigarette from a friend and then buying your own packet to return the gesture. When everyone around you is smoking, the social influence of wanting to fit in with the crowd is common, making it all the more difficult to stop. Bad habits are often a means of coping with boredom, stress or low self-esteem and smoking is no exception.* Although nicotine withdrawal will actually last a relatively short time, breaking the habit of smoking requires dealing with the deeper issues.*
Hypnosis can help you to appreciate why you continue with a habit even though you know it may be harmful to your health and limit enjoyment of certain physical activities* You will be able to recognise the triggers which compel you to smoke and to find new routines, different rewards and positive ways in which to change your behaviour instead of reaching for a cigarette.* Using hypnotherapy in Harley Street, Jonathan Conway will show you how to look ahead and visualise how you can respond differently when faced with a situation where you would previously have craved tobacco.* You will begin to focus on your future as a non-smoker, with the understanding that bad habits really don’t have to last a lifetime.*

Weight Loss with Hypnotherapy in Brighton*
Do you feel that your life is controlled by food and you are unable to manage a healthy balance of how much you are eating? You may find that you are either on a diet or between diets, with no neutral ground. Hypnotherapy in Brighton & Hove can help you to lose weight by understanding your relationship with food and why it may be affecting your quality of life.*
Perhaps you have tried every fad diet and become disheartened when each one has failed, leaving you believing that you’re the failure rather than the diet regime. This is likely to result in a feeling of guilt, mentally punishing yourself for not achieving the desired weight loss. You may find that dieting is followed by periods of comfort eating in an attempt to feel better after breaking the strict rules you’d set for yourself. Dieting is frequently a negative cycle of highs and lows.
During hypnotherapy sessions at the Conway Practice in Brighton, Jonathan will address the reasons behind your disordered eating.* Do you turn to food when you are stressed or feeling bored and have a compulsion to eat high calorie food for comfort? Are your family or friends ‘feeders’, insisting you consume more than you would choose to eat but you’re reluctant to reject the food they’re offering, concerned you will hurt their feelings? You may for instance have been programmed as a child to believe that you must finish everything on your plate regardless of being full.
These subconscious triggers, whether due to anxiety, low self-esteem or pre-conditioning are a result of your feelings and beliefs which lead to your behaviour and relationship with food. While under hypnosis any negative thoughts and emotions can be brought to the surface and resolved.* Jonathan will guide you in positive imagery, enabling you to visualise how you will look and feel once you have achieved your ideal weight.* Hypnotherapy in Brighton & Hove is a completely safe and natural way in which to lose weight. It can be effective not only in establishing a healthy eating balance but can also be self-empowering, enabling you to accomplish your personal goals with positive intention.*

Quit smoking with hypnotherapy in Brighton*
As certain as anyone will remember the first time they tried their first cigarette, the last one will never be forgotten. The aim of everyone who wants to stop smoking is to light a final cigarette and never go back to the habit again. This can be difficult to achieve alone as not only is nicotine an addictive substance, the psychological addiction can be even more powerful.
Hypnotherapy can help you to stop smoking at the Conway Practice in Brighton by uncovering the reasons why you first started to smoke tobacco and why you are now ready to give up.* You can’t be forced to do anything while under hypnosis that subconsciously you don’t want to do and so in order for hypnotherapy to be effective you must be fully committed to quit smoking.* Family and friends may be putting you under pressure to stop, but this has to be something you do for yourself, not simply to please others. During coaching sessions and with the aid of hypnotherapy, Jonathan will help you to understand how you can successfully cope through the withdrawal stages.* It actually takes a relatively short time for the physical symptoms to subside, but the actual habit of smoking a cigarette needs to be eliminated by recognising the psychological root cause for the need to smoke.*
Perhaps you first took up the habit to impress others and to appear more sophisticated and popular with your peers. Attitudes to smoking have changed greatly however and whereas in the past a smoker may have fitted in well with the crowd, they may now feel something of an outsider, banned from smoking in public areas and banished to lighting up outside in uncomfortable all-weather shelters. If anxiety plays a significant part in your reason for continuing to smoke, Jonathan Conway will show you how to reduce your stress levels without the need for a cigarette.* During hypnosis while the mind is relaxed and open to positive suggestion, you will learn how to reduce your dependence on the habit of smoking, re-educating your subconscious mind to defuse your smoking triggers and become nicotine free.*

Managing your Weight Loss with Hypnotherapy in Brighton*
Do you find yourself trying out fad diets and then quickly become disillusioned and disheartened when they don’t help you to maintain any weight loss? Yo-Yo dieting is common, with periods of restricting certain foods followed by over-indulging in everything you’ve been depriving yourself of. Hypnotherapy in Brighton takes a different approach to managing weight loss, getting to the root cause of your negative relationship with food.*
Perhaps you overeat or are drawn to unhealthy fattening foods when you are feeling low. This emotional hunger triggers a need to make yourself feel better by eating for comfort, much as you may have done as a child. It’s natural for parents or care-givers to reward children with sugary, high-calorie treats which later in life becomes a subconscious association with a solution for stress, anxiety or loneliness.* Comfort eating when you are not in control of your eating habits, is only a temporary fix to the problem and is often immediately followed by a feeling of guilt. *
Hypnotherapy in Brighton can help to lose weight by dealing with the deeper issues, such as low self-esteem and lack of confidence. In some cases being overweight can severely limit your social life, believing that you will be judged for your body image alone. You may even find that you self-sabotage a healthier eating regime to give yourself an excuse for not socialising with others. During hypnosis Jonathan will help you to pin-point the triggers that cause you to eat when you’re not physically hungry, or why you turn to food that you know will prevent you from losing weight.*
Hypnotherapy with Jonathan at the Conway Practice in Brighton can help you to break free of long standing negative habits that have been preventing you from achieving your goal to lose weight. You will be able to focus on a future where you can achieve positive change in your eating behaviour and you are no longer controlled by food.

How Hypnotherapy can Help you to Give Up Smoking in Highgate*
Are you a smoker who constantly says that tomorrow will be your last day of lighting a cigarette, but that day somehow never comes? Quitting the habit can be very tough on your own, but hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice in Highgate provides a safe and natural way to stop smoking.*
Firstly, you must be totally committed to giving up and pressure from family or friends alone is unlikely to motivate you into becoming a non-smoker if you’re only doing it to please others. During hypnotherapy sessions, Jonathan will determine why you want to stop and how you see yourself once you are free of the habit.* Perhaps you want to be healthier and more active, or are simply fed up with wasting money on cigarettes that could be spent on something far more enjoyable and worthwhile.
Visualisation while under hypnosis can be very powerful and is a similar state to daydreaming, enabling your subconscious mind to respond and recreate the positive images later as reality.* A successful sports person doesn’t see themselves as a loser; they only visualise crossing the winning line and positive thoughts will result in positive actions. Hypnotherapy can help you to stop smoking by getting to the root of why you smoke and what made you start originally.* Smoking isn’t simply an addiction to nicotine, it’s also an habitual behaviour.* If the reason is due to anxiety, then Jonathan will show you how to relax during stressful situations and to find your ‘peaceful place’, eliminating any negative thoughts and imagery.* These deep relaxation methods can also be used to help you through any withdrawal symptoms.*
Perhaps you have been using a cigarette as a prop to make yourself appear more confident and in control in professional or social situations. This can often stem back to adolescence when trying to fit in with the crowd and impress peers who were smoking.* During hypnosis in Highgate your subconscious mind can be retrained to eliminate unfounded fears, remove unhelpful beliefs and increase confidence and self-worth.* If you are truly committed to giving up smoking, hypnotherapy can help you to achieve that goal.*

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.*
