How Hypnotherapy Can Help Your Weight Loss Journey
Can hypnotherapy help you lose weight? Most people who consider this alternative treatment ask this one question. And yes, there have been countless studies that found that 60 – 90 percent of people who chose hypnotherapy became successful in reaching their weight loss goals. This relies upon them committing to a program over a period of time, and taking responsibility for their choices.
It is logical that changing the way you think will help you lose weight. After all, the cravings and urges we experience are generated by the mind, and besides poor eating patterns, most workouts are skipped when we feel depressed. We all know the effects our minds can have on a diet. The moment you decide to exclude certain foods from your diet, you start to crave these foods all the more and can’t seem to stop thinking about eating.
If your mind-set isn’t right at the beginning of your weight loss journey then you are setting yourself up for failure. So yes, hypnotherapy can help you lose weight and these treatments are a lot easier than you might think.
Why Does Hypnotherapy Work For Weight Loss?
Hypnotherapy is mostly focused on changing the way you think, and therefore, how you respond. During these sessions, you will develop an improved body/self image. This is important because it is much harder to do anything if you don’t feel good about yourself. Hypnotherapy sessions are also designed to help you feel more positive and open to eating healthily, and can help minimise cravings. These sessions are often also designed to help you feel more positive about working out and they are ideal for becoming increasingly goal-oriented. When you work out with the support of hypnotherapy sessions, you may become more focused, positive, and motivated; healthy living begins to feel natural; your chances of success are increased.
How Hypnotherapy Weight Loss Programs Work
Each weight loss program is unique because it is designed to suit each person’s unique lifestyle and challenges. Before hypnotherapy treatment there will be an assessment, including your past food and weight experiences.
This session helps the hypnotherapist identify the root cause of your problem, and negative underlying thoughts and behaviours regarding your weight are explored.
After that, you will start enjoying weekly programs. Generally, each week a different focus point is targeted. You will gradually learn to think more positively about your body. You will learn to set healthy goals and how to think positively about food, shopping, exercise, and nutrition. Your motivation will improve, and your confidence will be boosted. Weight loss programs often take approximately 6 weeks to10 weeks to complete. In this time, you should notice many positive behaviours and attitudes forming in the way you respond to food. You’re likely to have increased the activity in your life too. To remain on track, allow that it is wise to occasionally return for additional hypnosis to ensure the best results.
