Does the sight of scales terrify you?
Put off going to the Doctor's because you know you're going to get weighed?
Stop yourself from doing leisure activities because you're embarrassed by your tummy, legs or thighs?
Buy your clothes online because you're afraid of judgement by store assistants?
If your answer is YES - you are not alone. The struggle is real, very real.
How Hypnosis works in relation to weight loss.
The science of losing weight is far more complicated than simply eating less. If that was the case, most people would do just that. We eat and overeat for many reasons.
In a vast majority of cases often that reason is a form of self-medication in order to dampen down emotions or as a form of reward.
Some of the other reasons we over eat are listed herewith:
To punish ourselves
To reward ourselves
Out of habit
As a form of self-nurturing
To feel loved
To feel comforted
To stuff emotions down instead of processing them
As a reaction to emotional stress
As a way to avoid confrontation
Out of boredom
When we feel broken hearted
As a form of protection
Of course, this does not cover all of the reasons, but, if we look at the myriad of reasons we overeat it's easy to see how we can very easily become overweight.
Furthermore, if we look at the psychology behind the process of overeating we can easily see why it's not as simple as eat less, exercise more.
Although, some people will argue that point, and that's okay as those two components do make up a very big part of health care management.
Hypnosis for weight loss allows an individual to get in touch with the part of themselves that desires real change and intuitively knows what the PURR-FECT (aka perfect) shape and size is for YOUR body.
Hypnotherapy of this type is about allowing yourself to bypass the critical self and tap into the intuitive self.
When undertaking weight loss hypnotherapy, it's important you are doing it for you, not for a partner, or a friend, or anyone else, except for you.
How many sessions will I need?
The short answer here is 3.
We scientifically know it takes 30 days to break a habit.
Overeating is a habit or can even be a learned behaviour.
Most times our first session is spent exploring why you overeat, and how we can assist in overriding and eliminating the reason behind the need to overeat.
Some clients report amazing and even drastic results in 1 session, however, as experienced and accredited hypnotherapists we believe a minimum of 3 sessions is required in order to provide you with the very best chance of achieving and maintaining your weight loss goals.
What type of results can I expect?
There is a huge amount of variance in the results we see.
Some clients report losing 2kgs in the first week, some report 1/2 kilo.
On occasion we have had clients report weight loss up to 4kgs in a week.
There are many factors that determine how much you will lose, some of these factors are:
How much exercise you do during the week
How much water you consume each day
How much time you spend inactive vs. active
How many steps you take per day
How much weight you need to lose from the outset
The type of work you do
Calories in vs. calories out
All of the above points are addressed during the hypnotic process.
Results do vary and there is no way we can give a defined amount of weight loss per session. We can, however, tell you that with hypnosis you are on track to improved health and wellbeing.
