Hypnotherapy to lose weight

Everyone knows that a healthy diet and plenty of exercise is recommended for a healthy lifestyle. It’s simple enough, eat less, eat healthier foods and exercise more. So why do so many of us struggle to control our weight?

No diets. No willpower

80% of all dieters fail to lose weight and one-third even gain additional weight. In a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine a group of researchers found that diet-induced weight loss alters hormone levels that regulate body weight and hunger levels. This leads to “successful” dieters putting the weight back on. Dieting does not address the root causes of weight issues.

Why do we struggle with food?

The human body has an amazing mechanism for letting us know when we are hungry and when we are full. Those who overeat often ignore the signs of being full and continue to eat. There are a number of reasons why individuals may do this.

The need to eat often satisfies our mind rather than the physical need to eat to survive. Changing the role food plays in our lives can be the key to long-term weight loss.

How can hypnotherapy help with weight loss?

Hypnotherapy can address the root causes behind an individual’s overeating. Once you have addressed, understood and changed the reasons why you overeat then you will feel there is no need to overeat.

Hypnotherapy can help to:

  • identify why you overeat

  • understand what you get from overeating

  • change your relationship with food

  • change your eating habits

  • give you control

  • develop a new self image

  • think more positively

  • learn how to enjoy food more

There are no diets involved, no forbidden foods, no complicated systems and no counting calories.

The research

In a study of 109 people spilt into two weight management groups (one using hypnosis for weight loss and one not using hypnosis), the hypnosis for weight loss group continued to get results in the two-year follow-up, while the non-hypnosis group showed no further results

Journal of Clinical Psychology, 1985

In a study of 60 women separated into hypnosis versus non-hypnosis groups, at the 6 month follow up stage, the groups using hypnosis lost an average of 17 pounds, while the non-hypnosis group lost an average of only 0.5 pounds

Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 1986.

In collective studies of hypnosis versus no hypnosis the average short-term weight loss was 6 pounds for those not using hypnosis and 11.83 pounds with hypnosis.

Even more importantly, over the long term the average weight loss without hypnosis remained at 6 pounds, but with hypnosis it jumped to 14.88 pounds indicating that the effects of hypnosis seem to continue over time.

TESTIMONIALS

Hi Barry

Just wanted to let you know that I’ve finaly achieved that 9st goal!
Since I had the sessions with you I’ve been much more determined and focused on achieving my goals and I wanted to say a huge thank you for that.

I hope you are well.

Kind regards,

LD

Hello Barry, I hope you are well. I am just letting you know that I would like to cancel my appointment next Tuesday, 12th. Things are going very well just now and I’m pleased to say that I am now in the process of reducing my medication – very slowly, but it’s a start. Until I came to see you it wasn’t something that I had ever really given much thought to but some of our conversations made me really think about it and, I feel, has given me the positive mental attitude and strength to start off on the path to being meds-free.

I’ve really benefited from our few sessions; this is the first time I have ever felt any form of therapy has been useful and I would like to thank you. I’m not saying you won’t see me again because I’m not sure how things will play out, but for the time being I would like to leave things. And as I say, thank you for the sessions that we have had.

JW

Hello Dear Barry,
I just thought that this skeptic would pop you a quick email to not only thank you but also to let you know that’s its been 2 weeks now since I’ve had the meeting/session
with you and have not smoked since!!!! Wow I feel so excited that I do not have that niggly craving anymore of going outside for a smoke whether at work or when I’m out with
friends having a social drink. I have never had hypnotherapy before so was a bit nervous about the session at first until speaking to you, you really made me feel comfortable
and at ease.

To anyone out there who is thinking about it or having second thoughts about booking a session, please don’t! I will be happy if I could convince at least 1 person to take
the bull by the horns and give it a shot. Just try it, what have you got to lose. This is a true testimonial written in my words so please don’t feel that because you’re
reading it on Barry’s webpage that it’s been edited- that’s a message to the doubting Thomas’s/pessimist’s out there. ;-))

Barry, a big ‘thank you’ again words cannot express how grateful and thankful I am and cheers to a healthier lifestyle that I thought was impossible!

Kindest regards

Rita
