Does hypnosis work for weight loss?

Hypnotherapy For Weight Loss

Does hypnosis help to achieve weight loss? The answer is a resounding ‘yes’ or at least recent studies suggest so. Hypnosis has had a positive effect on people looking to shed those extra kilos once and for all.

The reasons often cited for people suffering from overweight or obesity include lack of self-control, wrong attitude,and mood swings/imbalance. This is where hypnosis can come to the rescue, especially with clients sharing the characteristics above. Obesity raises the risk levels of developing several diseases including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes,and forms of cancer.

Hypnosis is a temporary, altered state of consciousness. Hypnosis for healthy weight loss and control is usually a two-part process: First, the expert therapist gathers the information from the client tofully comprehend their problematic behaviours like unusual craving for food, over binging tendencies or sedentary lifestyle. Second, while the clientis in a relaxed, alert state, the therapist suggests altering those behaviours.

Scientific studies may have varying conclusions about the effectiveness of hypnotism for weight loss. Individual reports from doctors and patients do suggest that hypnotherapy is beneficial in allowing people to change habits and beliefs about diet and lifestyle. Hypnosis will enable patterns to improve and new and better behaviours around food and exercise to become automatic so that you are not thinking about it consciously.

When all weight loss treatments and solutions have failed to produce substantial results, hypnosis may be something you can explore.

Some of the ways hypnosis worksin unlocking the keys to disciplined weight loss include:

  • Curb cravings for unhealthy foods
  • Stop eating in response to adverse emotions
  • Stop mindless eating
  • Develop motivation to involve yourself in your favourite pastime or hobby
  • Exercise appropriately
  • Supercharge self-esteem
  • Take confidence in your stride and be in command of your life

There is one thing you should bear in mind: hypnosis is psychotherapy that can work around weight loss only when people are willing to accept the therapist’s suggestions. If you are resistant, it may not work for you.

Furthermore, while hypnotherapy is safe, it pays to look for a qualified therapist, and one belonging to an Australian Professional Hypnotherapy Organisation, and one accepted by the Hypnotherapy Council of Australia– Professional Hypnotherapists of Australia (PHA) is an organisation that is recognised. Being a PHA member ensures the therapist is qualified and has maintained those qualifications.
