Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss

"I've been on a constant diet for over two decades and lost 789 pounds. By all accounts I should be hanging from a charm bracelet!"


You have probably read the well-publicised statistic that 95% of people who lose weight by dieting will regain the weight (and often with a bit extra!) within 1-5 years. 


So what can you do? If what you have tried in the past hasn’t worked, you need to do something different and that "something different" needs to last. 

Certainly, if you need or want to get rid of unwanted kilos, that is a primary goal for you but the key to success is about permanent lifestyle changes. Taking control of eating and exercise habits is all in the mind and your mind can help you to move forward with thoughts, feelings and behaviours that create and support a healthy weight and a positive self image.


In April 2013, the media reported that celebrity "foodie" Nigella Lawson lost 13 kg with the help of hypnotherapy: Nigella Lawson used Hypnotherapy to lose 13 kg and if Nigella can do it, so can you!


Hypnotherapy is an extremely effective vehicle for “re-programming” the subconscious mind to allow you to change your relationship with your body, with food, with exercise and with yourself.  I have helped many people get rid of unwanted kilos and my approach incorporates a range of techniques aimed at an everyday comfortable approach which is about healthy pleasurable eating and regular exercise which will last.
