As we all know, losing weight is difficult. The quest for a slim, healthy body can make us miserable as we guiltily “cheat” on those endless diets, craving the fattening foods we love, and hating ourselves for it!
If you are struggling to lose weight you are not alone – two thirds of adults in England are overweight or obese (with a Body Mass Index of 25 or more), according to Public Health England.
Fortunately, there is help available in the form of Solution Based Hypnotherapy, now being practiced by qualified clinical hypnotherapist, Fiona Robinson, in Frome, Westbury and Warminster.
This is no party trick – being hypnotised under relaxed, controlled, professional conditions can actually re-program your negative attitude to healthy food and exercise. Working on your subconscious, hypnosis can break the bad habits of a lifetime of eating the “wrong” food.
Even more importantly, weight loss hypnotherapy can help you get off of the emotional roller-coaster of “comfort” eating, often a result of low self-esteem and the stress of modern daily life. Hypnosis can also help you overcome the distressing practice of binge-eating by helping you to mentally control the impulse to eat.
It’s all about mindfulness and motivation. You may well have the will to lose weight, but it takes weight loss hypnosis to activate and sustain that will-power and keep on the losing track, building your confidence as you see the pounds melting away.
Hypnotherapy is able to slowly strengthen your assertiveness and self-respect, inducing a more positive outlook on life, which in turn helps strengthen your will to lose weight and improve your health and body image.
The reasons for being overweight are many and varied, and very personal to each individual. It could be depression, past traumas, a medical condition, a sedentary lifestyle … the weight loss hypnotherapist works with you to resolve the underlying anxieties that are stopping you from dealing positively with weight loss, hiding in a “fat” body.
A top class weight loss hypnotherapist ensures that the suggestion firmly planted in your mind is that you CAN lose weight; that you WILL benefit by losing weight; and that you are a person worthy of respect.
Many people are sceptical or afraid of hypnotherapy, their fears fuelled in part by the “showman” hypnotists that put hapless subjects into a trance to be exploited as comedic objects for the sake of entertaining an audience.
Hypnotherapy today is becoming increasingly recognised as a psychotherapy tool, used to ease the way when lifestyle change is indicated, including weight loss.
Fiona Robinson is fully qualified as a clinical hypnotherapist and is accountable to both the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and National Council for Hypnotherapy.
She runs her practice from Frome Therapy Rooms in Frome, offering clients from her home town as well as Westbury, Warminster and surrounding areas clinical hypnotherapy sessions on a flexible time schedule. She also offers Zoom online video hypnotherapy sessions.
During a session Fiona coaches you into a state of deep relaxation, during which she can quietly place suggestions and visualisations into your unconscious mind. At no time do you lose control over your own actions or lose the ability to reject any of the suggestions made by the hypnotherapist.
Hypnotherapy for weight loss works best as a complementary therapy alongside a healthy eating and exercise plan. Hypnosis is designed to empower you to reach your weight loss goals, adopt a healthier lifestyle and ultimately feel a good deal happier as a consequence.
