If you have tried lots of diets but they always fail long-term, leaving you feeling fed up and frustrated don’t despair; you may be one of the millions of people who are overweight because they have a long- term emotional relationship with food. Many overweight people use food emotionally when they feel sad, stressed or bored as they find it comforting as well as pleasurable. Often emotional foods are high in sugar and fat and so are high in calories so you keep getting bigger and bigger.
The reason why diets don’t work long-term in my opinion is because they are all about rigidity, avoidance of certain food, focussing on calories in food, rules, rules and more rules. Initially our motivation can get us to follow the particular diet but then the rules become too difficult. This is because without dealing with any underlying emotional issues, however motivated a person is, the subconscious mind which controls our eating patterns will always win over a person’s willpower with the result that diets invariably fail.
Why Mindbance Hypnotherapy can help you to lose weight
Hypnotherapy is a safe natural and effective way to help you to achieve a healthy weight and to maintain it long term. As eating is one of the pleasures in life hypnotherapy still encourages people to enjoy eating whilst having a healthy relationship with food.
It establishes healthy eating patterns by helping you to change the way you think and feel about food, boosts your motivation to exercise and addresses any underlying emotional issues that you may have been using food to help you to cope with. By establishing a healthy emotional relationship with food we can win back our control. This will not only give you a better chance of having a healthy life but will also improve your confidence, self esteem and happiness.
I use a combination of hypnotherapy, CBT and NLP to tackle any underlying emotional issues (subconsciously) together with general weight management.
