Weight loss has become a bit of a passion of mine, not from always being on a diet (yes i've been there too) but more so because of all the out dated and toxic belief systems out there still being followed and taught by so many people.
Did you know that Two thirds of people gain back more weight after dieting! So why are we still pushing diets?
I find that whenever I read about weight loss in the popular media or watch people on reality TV trying to fight off the pounds, or listen to the latest strategies from the experts – be it a drug, diet, or the promise of some genetic breakthrough – I’m left feeling empty, used, and uninspired. It seems to me that we’re collectively stuck in the same limited conversation around weight that keeps playing itself back and landing us in the same place – nowhere. With obesity rates at an all-time high and continuing to rise, I’m stunned at how these outdated messages about weight never change, and never truly work:
Eat less, exercise more
You’ve got to have more willpower
Try the latest weight loss drug
This new diet book is the answer
Staple your stomach
Count your calories
Someday, soon, we’ll simply just change your DNA
If you can’t lose weight, you must be a loser
What’s your problem?
When was the last time you tried a fad diet or an extreme exercise routine and found your weight remaining stagnant? Are you ready to gain a sense of control over your weight and your life?
Many of us find ourselves stuck in ‘yo-yo diets’ and we often find our daily visit to the gym a chore. We feel forced to do it, leading to negative self-talk and suggestions of disbelief. The moment we have negative associations, we are limiting the possibility for it to manifest into reality. The subconscious mind is here for us and goes into ‘flight or fight’ mode.
Now, have you ever considered using hypnosis for weight loss?
By using hypnosis, we can help you break the cycle. It is time to eliminate those limiting and negative thoughts by replacing them with positive ones. We focus on shifting your mindset by delving into the subconscious. We provide calming and positive suggestions to your mind and reintroduce the way you perceive weight loss.
Is staying fit, healthy and trim one of your long-term goals? Rather than focussing on short-term results, we are here with you for the long haul. We are focussed on slow and steady results that work naturally with the needs of your body. Weight loss is not an overnight sensation, it is the result of a positive lifestyle.
Hypnotherapy is a tool that can help you focus on what you need in order to achieve your goals. Now is the time to change your thought process. Hypnosis can help you overcome those obstacles that your mind has set up for you.
Through effective hypnosis, we will work to enable you to have a positive relationship with food and exercise. As a result, we work to unlock the barriers to weight loss.
Hypnosis for weight loss can be the very thing you need, to change the trajectory of your life course.

Fears & Phobias
Getting help with a phobia is one of the most common things people seek hypnosis for.
Hypnosis techniques are effective for dealing with this kind of problem as we can directly influence the part of our mind that triggers this fear response.
It is normal and helpful for us to feel fear in response to certain situations. For example, it is quite legitimate to be afraid when a dog comes running towards you with its teeth bared. Normal levels of fear can keep us safe, and encourage us to find solutions to problems.
We are not born with fears, but acquire them as we go through life, as a result of our experiences and the development of our thinking mind.
As such, we need to learn to listen to our bodies, and learn to trust our “gut feeling”.
A phobic response is a heightened and often inappropriate feeling of fear when confronted with an animal, situation, etc. People with a phobia can have a phobic reaction even when that trigger is not present. A phobia is a learned response to an experience.
Often, this learning is instantaneous and most phobias are created as a result of an appropriate feeling of fear (such as feeling scared when a dog rushes at you). But that response may not be reasonable in every situation involving the trigger (ie, feeling real physical fear whenever you see a dog is not normally helpful to you).
The symptoms of a phobia range from feeling mild anxiety, to sweating, shaking and in some cases, vomiting or even fainting. A fear becomes a phobia when it stops you from carrying on normal, safe activities. A phobic reaction can even occur when a link is made between the feeling of fear and a totally unrelated trigger.
People can experience a phobia of:
Because we learn our phobias so quickly we have the ability to un-learn the response quickly, with the right tools. Hypnosis has been shown to be rapidly effective in helping people to overcome even the most debilitating phobias.
Of course, hypnotherapy will not override your normal, natural response to danger, but will help you to differentiate between a real or imagined need for a fear response.
Health & Nutrition
Using Hypnosis to help you with your health & Nutrition is designed to give you the motivation to eat and drink in a thoughtful and appropriate way, finding your natural body balance.
This is not a denial program, but a good feeling program. By using your inner mind’s assistance through hypnotherapy techniques you can have relaxed, good feelings about yourself, enjoy eating, and secure lasting weight control.
Real change is beyond will-power, and using hypnosis for weight loss does not call upon you to perform heroic feats of self denial; it is beyond daily insecurities so continues to work for you even when you are distracted by other priorities in your world.
Hypnosis frees you to live more fully by subconsciously accomplishing all those things which you most desire but have, as yet, been unable to achieve even with your most focused thoughts.
Hypnosis is an amazing modality for weight & health challenges. It creates opportunity to change eating and exercise patterns that promote harmony and well-being. It allows the mind to be more effectively supportive of health and physical wellness, while supporting greater emotional stability.
This directly influences habits and patterns that allow the body to move to its naturally perfect weight, and stay there without constant struggle.
