Hypnosis and weight control

Kilkenny Advertiser - 9 October 2008

Are you struggling with shifting those extra pounds that have crept on? Are you lacking in motivation to do something about it because of previous attempts (and failures) with diets? Well, if the answer is yes then hypnosis is the solution.

What makes weight loss hypnosis so different for weight control and how does it differ from other diets are two questions that hypnotists within Irish Hypnosis Ltd are frequently asked.

The first difference between hypnosis and “other diets” is that hypnosis is not a diet. To go “on” a diet suggests that at some stage you will come “off” it and this generally happens after a period of feeling starved, feeling deprived or counting points. Many diets are very effective on the body for a period of time but to feel healthy and maintain the weight loss and regain a sense of control, the mind must be working in harmony with the body. It’s like when you are trying to sleep and your mind is racing, the body can’t relax and go to sleep as it follows instruction from the mind. Similarly, if the mind feels it is being deprived of “goodies” then the body will crave them and that’s why we struggle on diets.

With hypnosis the subconscious part of the mind which governs our emotions, behaviours and habits is re-educated so that at the end of the first session, the client no longer desires unhealthy foods or large portions and has a desire to do an appropriate amount of exercise if possible or even a combination of all of these. And this is why hypnosis is so successful for weight control. Only by eating healthily and doing an appropriate amount of exercise appropriate to the individual will the client lose weight and maintain the weight loss. Clients also regain a sense of control and feel generally positive alongside the weight loss that results through the programme. As Sheila from Enniscorthy, Wexford says “I had tried so many diets before and each time I lost weight I put it back on, sometimes more. Thanks to hypnosis I now know I have control over what I put in my body and I can do anything I put my mind to”
