Hypnosis For Weight Loss

​Does Hypnosis for Weight Loss Work?

If you have ever tried to lose weight by dieting, you know the challenges you will face.  Sticking to a very restricted diet for a several weeks or months can be very difficult no matter how motivated you are. 

Hypnosis for weight loss can be an extremely effective solution for losing weight. In fact, studies have shown that hypnosis can be nearly twice as effective at supporting weight loss than traditional weight loss diets.

Why diets fail:

Diets often fail because people rely on sheer determination and will power.  Will power is something you exert consciously.  When you attempt to use will power you are making a conscious decision to control your behavior.  Unfortunately, so many of our behaviors, such as eating and all the emotional dynamics that go along with eating, are unconsciously driven.  So by using will power you are trying to change an often deeply ingrained behavior (overeating) at a conscious level, when it is the unconscious which needs to be dealt with directly.  Will power simply doesn’t work for most people.  And that is where hypnosis comes in. 

How does hypnosis for weight loss work?

Hypnosis for weight loss can be very effective because it taps into your unconscious.  This is where significant change can take place.  Hypnosis will generally be the most effective when you combine two things:  a highly skilled and knowledgeable hypnotherapist and a very motivated client.  It is important that you are motivated to lose weight, because you will be less resistant to the process and thus more likely to succeed. Hypnosis isn't teaching you to never have cravings. Instead, it trains your brain to easily and naturally overcome the cravings when you get them.

What to expect at your 1st session?

At your first hypnosis for weight loss session we will discuss your history with regards to issues about your weight and losing weight.  We'll talk about what your challenges are as well as the specific goals you want to achieve.  While general hypnosis work to some degree for everyone when it comes to weight loss, the more the hypnotherapy is tailored to your specific issues and goals, the more effective it will be in the long run. Your weight loss program will be customized and unique to you and your needs.

What will Hypnosis Feel Like?

Once we've identified your unique weight loss challenges, issues and goals, we'll begin the weight loss hypnosis. Laney, your hypnotherapist will help you get in to a highly relaxed state.  The more relaxed you are, the quieter your brain and the less inhibited you are.  You are still fully conscious, but you are very relaxed and focused.  It is in this state, referred to as a “trance” state, that you are the most open to suggestion.  All suggestions are  based on the information you have shared.

What Are Hypnosis Statements?

Once you are in a relaxed state, I will make various statements to you.  These statements are usually made in the present tense.  For example, if you struggle with craving a lot of sweets, I may say to you, “you have lost all desire for foods high in sugar and prefer only fresh fruit”.   Each hypnosis statement is a way of guiding your subconscious in a new direction so that you will make choices which result in weight loss. The more compatible the statements are with your issues and your goals, the more your subconscious mind will accept them and adopt them. 

Who should try weight loss hypnosis?

Hypnosis for weight loss can help most people, but it is especially helpful for emotional and unconscious eaters. By the time someone comes to me for weight loss hypnosis, they have usually tried every weight loss program on the planet. They know all the diets by heart and are often plagued by emotional guilt.  The challenge is that they have no will-power and more importantly they have developed negative associations with food.  The goal of hypnotherapy is to re-write those associations in the subconscious mind. Ultimately we want to help your subconscious associate food as fuel and nutrition.

How long does it take to get results with weight loss hypnosis?

A single hypnosis session may be helpful in jump starting your weight loss journey. Typically your program will consist of six to eight personalized hypnosis sessions.  This allows the new messages to become more deeply embedded in your unconscious mind.  In turn, the desired new habits and behaviors become a way of life for you, and you can lose the weight without the struggle.
