For those with less weight to lose, hypnotherapy can help with weight loss and weight management in many ways, by allowing you to change subconscious triggers which prevent you from losing weight, and from keeping the weight off after you have been successful. Your conscious mind knows that eating too much with very little exercise means weight gain. Successful weight loss is as much about re-educating your subconscious mind as it is about dieting.
As hypnotherapy works on a subconscious level to help you achieve the needed state of mind to willingly lose weight by behaviour control. Your hypnotherapist will guide you to feel more relaxed about weight loss and weight management, as stress is often a serious factor in bad diets and comfort eating.
To lose weight and keep it off, a new attitude towards food needs to be created and this is done during your hypnotherapy sessions, and with your CD's for self help at home, and then you can begin to enjoy food for the correct reasons, then you will only eat when you are hungry, and you can stop when you feel full. Using this method changes the subconscious and the desire for excess food, which means you can form new eating habits of healthier more nutritious food.
