Losing weight is very personal and therefore slimming groups/clubs often fail to provide an individual solution. It’s a fact that some weight loss can be achieved by these methods but shedding kilos is only one step in achieving a healthy lifestyle. With every new fad diet publicised, new food rules are introduced to be monitored, planned and followed. Disappointment sets in as the addictive nature of novelty isn’t sustainable and reverting to the old ways of eating is inevitable. When you’ve been good for so long and then it comes to an abrupt end when the pressure gets too much, you feel like you’ve failed. The diet is no longer new and exciting, people have stopped noticing your weight loss – the danger then is that you end up back where you started. Hypnotherapy can help to halt this repetition of behaviour by changing the way you think, feel and behave, encouraging you to change naturally and at your own pace. Hypnotherapy uses the power of your subconscious mind to help you towards choosing the right foods upfront, avoiding fad diets, binge eating or relying on sweet or take away meals. It works with you to recognise your successes, increase motivation and build the confidence that will help you to achieve a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
HypnoBand – ‘The Virtual Gastric Band’ for weight loss
We are a North East HypnoBand Weight Loss Specialist.
We know from our clients that deciding to opt for a gastric band is not easy. They spend sleepless nights questioning whether it is the right thing for them. As surgery doesn’t always solve underlying issues, clients often worry how they will cope once the operation is over. This is why Hypno-Band is a popular choice before resorting to gastric band surgery.
HypnoBand is designed for those with a BMI of over 25. The HypnoBand System combines Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and hypnotherapy techniques to help you explore and change your eating habits. Thereafter, using the mind/body connection a ‘virtual gastric band’ is fitted to your stomach, helping you to eat less, less often.
Success rates are high for those who are fully committed to participating with the HypnoBand System. It is not a quick fix and the part that you play is key to achieving what you want – namely losing weight.
If you have other concerns which may be connected to your eating habits, they will need to be discussed at the initial consultation.
From discussions at your initial consultation, you will have a clear idea of how you would like to see yourself. The real ‘shift’ begins with how you think, feel and behave.
Hypnotherapy works on the level of feelings, patterns and unconscious motivations. This is why it can help you to want to make the right lifestyle choices for your health and well-being. It can also provide you with the tools to deal with emotional distractions more effectively.
