When people decide that they need to get in shape and lose weight, they often begin with the closest diet they can get their hands on. Things might be good for a couple of days before they notice cravings increasing. And with the cravings comes that mental chatter that begins to argue more loudly every day.
Before you know it, your conscious and subconscious mind are fighting a massive internal battle; before you even get a chance to put your running shoes on.
Is it any wonder that so many people fall short when it comes to losing weight and toning up?
Underneath the mental surface however is an enormous powerhouse that is dedicated to focusing your mind on achieving the goals that it believes are important. The problem begins when this supercomputer takes on an incorrect meaning or a negative habit and uses this to achieve something beyond your conscious recognition.
What this means is whilst you are consciously deciding to lose weight, the bigger and stronger part of your mind will keep on doing what it believes is “ultimately” in your best interest. Even if that means sabotaging your dieting efforts. Before you know it, you are sitting on the couch with a pack of Tim Tams or scoffing down another slice of pizza hating everything that you see in the mirror but feeling helpless to fight it.
Where clinical hypnotherapy comes into play is to access the part of your mind creating this conflict, in getting it on board through either reframing its behaviour (e.g., eating because you are bored or feeling a little emotional) or, gently reprogramming its behaviour to do something else that is positive in order to achieve the same result.
Hypnotherapy like any other form of therapy does require your commitment to yourself to get results. If you approach it with a negative mindset then you will likely find your subconscious mind (the supercomputer part) will grant your wish with little results to show.
Many people experience results using hypnotherapy for weight loss within their first session. With follow-up sessions, the new positive and empowering behaviour is reinforced and before you know it you are doing things effortlessly that supercharge your weight loss. This can be anything from eating healthier, eating smaller portions through to being more active without even giving it a thought.
