Weight Loss and weight management

There is an increasing number of people who have issues with eating, drinking and weight loss in our society.

The BBC Word News reported that:

“People are getting fatter almost everywhere in the world”.  They stated that “obesity is a modern problem - statistics for it did not even exist 50 years ago.  The increase of convenience foods, labour-saving devices, motorised transport and more sedentary jobs means people are getting fatter.

In response to what some describe as the ‘obesity epidemic’, there are now an overwhelming number of diets and ‘magic cures’ advertised in the media and on the internet, but unfortunately many of them simply do not work.
This is because they fail to address the very reasons why you have issues with food and drink….   

How Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy can help you

The majority of people who have issues with their eating and drinking also have a variety of other issues which impact upon themselves, some of these may be listed below:

  1. Poor self-confidence
  2. Low self-esteem
  3. Poor, and/or factually inaccurate self and body image
  4. Lack of, or weak willpower
  5. Guilt
  6. Boredom
  7. High stress levels
  8. Loneliness
  9. Lack of exercise
  10. ‘Portion distortion’ – the name being applied to our lack of awareness of correct portion sizes in our ‘super-size’ culture
  11. Social Anxiety

Hypnosis and hypnotherapy combined with some mind management coaching is a more effective interventions for weight loss, and eating and drinking issues, as they aim to address and minimize unhelpful beliefs and issues.

Hypnosis, combined with suggestion therapy will enable you to move on from unhelpful thought patterns within just one session. It will provide you with a greater sense of self; it will boost self-confidence, willpower and self-esteem; it will help you build on your self-belief; you will become more consciously aware of what and when you are eating and drinking, thereby enabling you to become more in control; you will have greater motivation for exercise and you will have a strong visual image of yourself as a successful person who is in control if their eating and drinking. So, weight loss can be easier than you imagined.

An added bonus is that hypnosis is wonderfully relaxing and reduces stress levels.

Eating Disorders or serious issues with Eating or Drinking

If your eating or drinking are more serious, then you are not alone: Disordered-eating.co.uk report that at least 1.1 million people in the UK are affected by an eating disorder, with young people in the age-group 14-25 being most at risk of developing this type of illness.
As many as one woman in 20 will have eating habits which give cause for concern; most will be aged 14 to 25 years old.

The Royal College of Psychiatrists:
Girls and women are 10 times more likely than boys and men to suffer from anorexia or bulimia.

The Independent on Sunday:
An investigation into the problem of eating disorders revealed that at least 1 percent of women are affected by eating disorders.

Currently believes the number of people receiving treatment for anorexia or bulimia to be near to 90,000, while many more people have eating disorders undiagnosed, in particular those with bulimia nervosa.

The Hypno-Band

If you have a more serious long term problem with your eating or drinking, or perhaps you have an eating disorder such as bulimia or anorexia, then it is likely that you would benefit most from a course of analytical hypnotherapy combined with mind management. This type of therapy would provide you with all the benefits of hypnosis whilst also helping you to fully resolve your issues with eating and self-image, leaving you free to enjoy a more stable and relaxed approach to eating and drinking.

I have been a fully approved and Licensed Hypno-Band Practitioner since May 2010. If you wish to verify our credentials please click on this link which takes you to the Official Hypno-Band List of Practitioners.

The most important thing to consider if you are thinking about having the treatment is just how much you want to reach your target weight. It is important to be clear that just as with a REAL surgical gastric band, you will have to follow guidelines and procedures if you want to be successful.

The treatment was originally designed for people who have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or higher but after helping literally thousands of people to lose weight, it was found that people with a BMI of 25 and above can also benefit.

Your Body Mass Index is a measure of your body fat to weight ratio, and is a good indicator of your risk factor to potentially damaging health problems such as Type Two Diabetes.
