How Hypnotherapy can Help Remove Barriers to Losing Weight*
It should be easier to lose weight during the Summer months when the inclination for heavier foods diminishes in the warmer weather and there are greater opportunities for outdoor activity. However, the same subconscious barriers to successful weight loss remain and emotional factors can play a significant part in sabotaging any attempts to control your eating habits. Hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice provides help to lose weight by focusing on the reasons behind a negative relationship with food.*
Firstly, you must have the self-belief that you are capable of achieving your goal weight and not allow yourself to be deterred by any failures in the past. You may feel that you are in control of virtually every area of your life, but are unable to control your weight and are unable to understand why. During the hypnosis sessions, Jonathan will talk through your feelings of self-worth and whether you feel that you don’t deserve to look slimmer and healthier.* This can be a form of social anxiety, using your weight as an excuse not to socialise with others as you fear you will be criticised or be the centre of attention.
Sharing food with others can be a way in which you show that you care, in the same way in which your parents may have demonstrated their love when you were a child. Within your subconscious mind you could feel that by rejecting food you are being offered you are rejecting the feeder, despite being aware that this is undermining your weight-loss programme. Hypnotherapy can be very effective in helping to address emotional reasons behind poor food management and overeating issues. Many overindulge when feeling anxious or despondent and mindlessly eat as a form of comfort, even though this is likely to be swiftly followed by regret.
Hypnotherapy for weight loss will enable you to form a more positive relationship with food but will also give you the confidence to make lifestyle changes.* You will be aware of how your past behaviour has held you back from being the person you want to be and now have the increased motivation to get you there.*
