Weight Loss


Hypnosis as a method to aid in Weight loss/Management has been both very popular and successful for effectively curbing negative eating behaviours leading to obesity and chronic weight gain over the past few decades.  If you have ever tried to lose weight by dieting, you know too well the many challenges you will face.  Sticking to a very restricted diet for a several weeks or months can all too often be very difficult bordering on impossible no matter how motivated you believe you are.  Most diets require a limited number of calories, which often lead to battles with hunger throughout the day.  Other diets require that you eat only certain foods, which can lead to significant boredom after a short period of time.

It is no wonder that many people fail when it comes to dieting. At Advance Hypnosis Clinic’s our standard weight management hypnosis interventions allow for a greater chance of success when changing or replacing old habits for new ones.

Diets often fail because people rely on sheer determination and will power.  Willpower is something you exert consciously.  When you attempt to use will power you are making a conscious decision to control your behaviour.  Unfortunately, so many of our behaviours, such as eating and all the emotional dynamics that go along with eating are unconsciously driven.  So by using willpower you are trying to change an often deeply ingrained behaviour (overeating) at a conscious level, when it is the unconscious which needs to be dealt with directly.  Willpower by itself simply fades for most people.  And that is where hypnosis comes in.

Hypnosis for weight loss/management can be very effective because it taps into your unconscious.  This is where significant change can take place.  Hypnosis will generally be the most effective when you combine two things:  a highly skilled and knowledgeable hypnotherapist and a very motivated client.  It is important that you are motivated to lose weight, so as to give the process 100% of your personal commitment and thus giving yourself the best opportunity to succeed.
