Weight Loss and hypnotherapy
Lots of us have been there at some point in our lives, that point where we want to lose weight, whether it is a few pounds or even a few stones. If you have ever been on a diet you know that it can be difficult to resist those foods you crave. If you try to cut something out then the chances are you can’t stop thinking about it and end up eating too much as you’ve been depriving yourself. Maybe you have had great success with a diet but the weight has crept back on further down the line as the reasons behind your previous overeating and your maladaptive habits were not addressed.

Many of us are aware of these yet our busy modern lifestyles can still distract us from taking note of these statistics and information and continuing our overeating habits.
There are many methods to which people can turn to help them lose weight and each person is different. Some people find food plans work for them, some do it alone with others preferring group meetings. Many do find success with such methods for a time but so often the weight returns when they stop. Hypnotherapy can help you to examine your individual reasons behind why you overeat, identify unhelpful eating patterns, and to work with you to find healthier alternatives to your previously detrimental habits, leaving you to live the life you wanted in a happier and healthier manner.
