Relying on willpower and diets alone feels like going into battle with yourself….
Your mind and body are on auto pilot and no amount of beating yourself up will change that until..
You can start to unlock the emotional triggers, learned behaviours, coping mechanisms and traumas that have taught your body that being overweight = Feeling Safe. Hypnotherapy combined with EFT (tapping acupressure points) effectively supports weight loss because it can remove many of the emotional triggers that cause us to experience stress or depression and emotional eating.
Our habits are all stored deep in our subconscious mind. Will power depends on conscious thought and when this is in conflict with habits programmed into the subconscious, the subconscious always wins. To truly balance mind,body and soul, a more holistic approach is needed.
Hypnotherapy and EFT reduce cravings, emotional eating, insomnia and anxiety. I can help you establish healthy eating habits, reduce portion size, feel motivated to exercise in ways that feel comfortable and most importantly release any emotional pain and boost your self confidence to succeed.
Everyone is different!
We are each unique...different body types, personalities, passions and experiences...
We also respond to stress in different ways and it is because of all these factors that I look at the whole person and their unique journey to uncover the reasons they find it difficult to lose weight. Will power alone is not enough to stick to diets in the long term, when your subconscious mind is wholly responsible for continuing the patterns that have become second nature in our lives.
Our subconscious stores all memories and emotions, preferences and behaviours. It is responsible for ensuring our survival by maintaining all our bodily functions and ensuring that we are able to operate on auto pilot, following the behaviours we have learnt.
Will power can divert long term eating patterns only for the time we remain focused on a goal, however, it may also have to fight other beliefs and behaviours that your subconscious has prioritised as more important. So relax and stop beating yourself up.
You Are Not Weak Willed!
The Stress/Exhaustion/Weight Gain equation:
When we experience stress, our bodies release cortisol and andrenal, stress hormones which can build up in our bloodstream. These hormones can contribute to unsettled sleep patterns and you may wake feeling exhausted even if your are having more than 7 hours sleep. Going to bed late and or unsettled sleep are signals to the body to store weight as a survival mechanism. Our bodies interpret stress in the same way as prehistoric man did… food =survival and for many of us our stress response is to store weight at a time when it is safe to do so; when we sleep.
My Weight Loss Program
To help you lose weight without dieting, counting calories or the embarrasment of regular weigh-ins,
I recommend the Virtual Gastric Band Program in conjunction with The Gabriel Method (scroll down to read more).
Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis
The Virtual Gastric Band program was developed by Sheila Granger in the UK following the results of a free trial showed that 24 out of 25 clients collectively lost 14 stone in 3 weeks. Since then thousands of people have completed the program with The program helps you to retrain your mind to reduce portion size and cravings without dieting. The program will address over eating, comfort eating, eating from boredom and stress.
The Body/Mind Connection with Hypnosis
When in a deeply relaxed trance state, similar to daydreaming, the boundaries between what is real and what is imagined become blurred. Being guided through a relaxation process and an imagined operation to install a gastric band can impact us physically, resulting in the experience of feeling fuller and satisfied with less food.
