Weight Loss

Weight loss through hypnotherapy is not about diets, counting points, or denying yourself the things you want.

It’s about eating more of the foods that are good for you, and eating less of the not-so-good foods. Simply put, it’s about creating a healthy, natural and sensible lifestyle. This makes it easy for you to get off the diet roller-coaster. You can look forward to keeping those pounds off for life!

How does hypnosis work for weight loss?

By no means is this program a “one-size fits all” approach to healthy living. We here at New Horizons Hypnosis realize that everybody is different, and in today’s day and age not everyone has a whole lot of free time. However, when we work with you as an individual we work with all aspects of your life which are essential to your success…

Your attitude about food… Many people use food to gauge their own happiness or well-being on a day to day basis. Hypnosis can help to change your attitudes about food so that you no longer reach for it in times of stress, depression, or emotional insecurity.

Your ‘triggers’ for eating… Many people find themselves over-eating in times of stress or in response to emotional situations, however hypnosis aids you indentifying these ‘triggers’, allowing you to stop and make healthier decisions where you may not have before.

Confidence in yourself… A common technique we use for a variety of issues is the self-visualization method. The ability to imagine yourself at a healthy weight and living a healthy lifestyle is an important factor. Hypnosis works to reinforce these positive images in your mind. Keeping your goal uppermost in your mind makes it much easier to align your thoughts and your actions with reaching that goal.

Your overall health… As you begin to find satisfaction in eating more of the foods that are good for you (and less of the ones that aren’t), changing and sticking with these new eating patterns will be easier than ever. Hypnosis works by increasing your desire for the good foods, making the unhealthy options far less desireable.

We do not recommend or promote any one particular diet or nutritional program. Most clients already know how to eat healthy; you know what the good and bad foods are for you. Our goal is to remove the barriers, or change your core beliefs which have kept you from doing what you know is best.

How many sessions does it take?

Weight loss is probably one of the most complex issues we help people solve. It varies widely by client depending on your current eating habits, level of exercise and desire to change. Generally, three sessions (over a 2-3 week period) give us a good start at addressing the underlying issues involved.
