As you can see, from the list above, there are many facets to weight management. Perhaps you don't like yourself very much and are keeping the weight on as a form of self-protection. So, over-eating may be a form of self-sabotage.
Comfort eating may have started out as an attempt to fulfill an unmet need but the need wasn't met and the weight went on. Then, when the need was met, comfort eating became a habit.
It doesn't help that manufacturers add certain ingredients to their foods in order to make us want more of the same. Fast foods are, in a sense, not foods at all and they begin to steal your shape and energy, your dignity and even your sense of femininity or masculinity.
Maybe you have a sweet tooth? Added sugar is the single worst ingredient in the modern world. It contains no essential nutrients, it can have harmful effects on metabolism and contributes to fatty liver disease and diabetes, is the leading contributor to obesity and is one of the leading drivers of heart disease. Added to which, scientists believe that having constantly elevated insulin levels (a consequence of sugar consumption) contributes to cancer.

How Can Hypnotherapy Help?
The good news is that I don't advocate diets. Why? Because we can all lose weight on a diet but it's when we return to normal eating that the weight goes back on, And more! A further diet will have the same effect. So, constant dieting is not only training our bodies to live on less but to become very good fat storing machines. I see many clients who have been on all sorts of diets, have yo-yo dieted for years, yet are still not happy with their weight. They may talk about 'being good' and seem to be caught in the trap of trying to eat healthily but not knowing what to eat any more.
Using hypnotherapy I will explore possible past influences, eating habits and level of activity. Together we will formulate a healthier lifestyle by making small adjustments to what, when and how much you eat, usually resulting in three, correct and proper, satisfying, healthy meals a day with healthy snacks in between. This means that you will never be hungry, your blood sugar levels will remain stable, preventing cravings for sugary foods and the inevitable crash it brings, and you will enjoy eating delicious, healthy meals.
Under hypnosis, we will banish 'non-foods' and comfort eating. I will motivate you to choose the right foods in sensibly sized, filling portions and to become a little bit active, such as walking further from the car park to the office.
It's not a quick fix because quick fixes don't work in the long term. It is changing your lifestyle so that you effortlessly lose a few pounds a week to become, and stay, slim, healthy, youthful and active. So, won't it be great when: you feel energised? you enjoy buying clothes? you look in the mirror and like what you see? you are trim and fit? you are your true shape and size?
