Weight Loss – How Hypnotherapy can help you slim down and improve your health.

Hypnotherapy can be an effective form of weight loss – as it seeks to find underlying issues and change behaviours – which differs to calorie restricted diets which often lead to “yo-yo” dieting.

Loosing excess weight not only helps you to feel confident and look great, but can bring enormous health benefits too.  Being over-weight can increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, strokes, diabetes – to name just a few – and being over-weight has shown to develop many problems if you were to contract COVID 19

          “Being obese or overweight puts you at greater risk of serious illness or death from Covid-19, experts say after examining existing studies.

            The review of evidence by Public Health England found excess weight put people at greater risk of needing hospital admission or intensive care.”

This page gives examples of how hypnotherapy can help with adopting healthy eating, controlling cravings, omit comfort eating, and using the hypnotic gastric band for weight-loss.

J S Hypnotherapy  offers clients  the option of having an HYPNOTIC GASTRIC BAND.  This works alongside the principles of the Surgical Gastric Band – a procedure to limit food intake to the stomach.  During hypnosis, the unconscious mind believes that the gastric band has been attached. This  gives the same results – weight loss! But without surgery or pain. And no risks!    …  further more …The results of surgical gastric band is an impressive 70% BUT the success rate of hypno-gastric bands is 80%    (Source: Centre of Excellence – Gastric Band Hypnotherapy, based on statistics between 1994 and 2011)

How J S Hypnotherapy can help YOU lose weight …

Whether you opt for traditional hypnotherapy for weight loss, or the Hypnotic Gastric Band, I will work with you by:

  • Devising a weight-loss packages specifically for YOU:  To meet your needs, goals, life-style
  • giving on-line support during the time I work with you.  This means you are never on your own and have someone to turn to if you need some extra support and encouragement.
  • Enhancing motivation
  • offering support and advice on weight-loss.  From checking your Body Mass Index (BMI) and assessing the perfect weight for you;
  • providing many tips for weight loss, alongside your hypnotherapy sessions
  • assisting you to eat “mindfully”.  I have a Diploma in Mindfulness, and can therefore incorporate “mindful eating”, if appropriate for you.    The art of mindfulness can transform our struggles with food—and renew our sense of pleasure, appreciation, and satisfaction with eating.   See the following article:    http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2014/jun/23/mindful-eating-how-to-get-more-from-your-meals  You may not realise, for example, that eating in front of the TV can result in eating extra calories.  Eating mindfully – without too many distractions, such as the TV – helps you enjoy your food more and limits over-eating.  See : http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2295303/Why-eating-TV-makes-fat-You-consume-25-LATER-day-realising.html#ixzz3gM5i7z3b
  • I can offer you the Hypnotic Gastric Band if appropriate (*depending on your BMI and individual needs)

Lose Weight By Hypnosis”  by Maurice Anslow   He starts by  highlighting how “ Hypnosis is an increasingly sought after therapy for those seeking to lose weight because shedding the pounds is all about changing how you see yourself and being convinced of how little food you really need.  Hypnotherapy is safe, always a pleasant experience, and many weight-watchers prefer to try this “mind-over-matter” approach rather than diets that rarely provide a long-term answer” …  He highlights the importance of a healthy weight and finishes “The benefits of weight loss to psychological issues like confidence and self-esteem hardly require mention..  http://www.hypnotherapy-directory.org.uk/hypnotherapist-articles/lose-weight-by-hypnosis
