Hypnosis is for anyone looking for a gentle way to lose weight and make healthy eating into a habit. Reframing problematic thoughts about food takes time —in between appointments you also work hard to maintain your new healthy habits.
Hypnosis isn't meant to be a "diet" but rather one tool to help you be successful with eating nutritious food and exercising. Hypnosis helps you experience in a multi-sensory way what it feels like when you are strong, fit and in control and to overcome your mental barriers to achieving those goals. Hypnosis can specifically help you resolve the underlying psychological problems causing you to hate exercise, experience intense cravings, binge at night, or eat mindlessly for example. It helps you identify the triggers and disarm them."
In fact, it's helpful to not think of hypnosis as a diet at all. It works because it changes your way of thinking about food and eating, and it allows you to learn to be more calm and relaxed in your life. So instead of food and eating being an emotional solution, it becomes an appropriate solution to hunger, and new patterns of behaviour are developed that enable the person to deal with emotions and life, Hypnosis works for weight loss because it enables the person to separate food and eating from their emotional life."
