Not happy with your weight?
I am guessing that if you are overweight, maybe you have already tried many diets and feel frustrated that you might be able to lose some weight but it just comes straight back on again over the next few months. And even though that you might realise that diets just do not work, you just don’t know what else to do.
But it might also be that you are underweight and that you need to put on weight because you know that you cannot sustain the wieght you are the moment.
Is the problem your weight?
I wonder if you ask yourself this question what answer you will come up with. Is it that you are eating or not eating to manage something that is causing you pain and distress? Something in your past? or a way of thinking that just isn’t working for you and causing you to relieve that mental pain by over or under eating?
And if that is the case, then would it not be more efficient for us to focus on those issues, and would we not expect that once we have dealt with them, the weight and eating would be well on the way to normalising themselves?
Make permanent changes that will last.
I have to be honest, I haven’t always treated weight this way. I used to adopt the traditional approach, and it was successful to some degree. But the more I learnt and more experience I had working with weight issues I realised that this weight issue is often not the cause of the problem but rather a symptom for something else.
And just to add to the mix, it might be that any weight issues you have might also have caused you to have low self-esteem or a low level of confidence. And it a might be that your weight is having a negative affect on your health, which is causing you to worry about it or be anxious about.
What will we look at?
Over your sessions we will work on locating and resolving any issues which might be lurking in the background, using a variety of hypnotheraputic techniques.
And then once we have successfully completed that we will work on re-establishing a more useful relationship with food and eating patterns, whilst building self-esteem and confidence.
