Counselling looks at the reasons holding back change and used with hypnosis to change attitudes and beliefs to re-enforce the motivation to succeed.

Weight management can be complex. Therapy looks at the cause or reason for eating unhealthily, as the drive behind the motivation to eat or crave foodstuffs may be a distraction strategy for emotional reasons or other benefit. The reasons why people find it difficult to manage weight are equally as mixed as the stressors that can affect weight. Keys to weight management using hypnotherapy involve addressing and empowering the belief system, self-esteem, reducing food cravings, and understanding the ‘reasons’ for weight gains. Therapy leading to a change of habits, attitude to food, and promoting a reduction of anxiety or stress and elimination of secondary gains is important. Therapy can aid provide a new focus on addressing and enhancing motivation to lose weight and address issues of weight management. Direct in-trance suggestions alone if they are strategic and measured will often work for weight management and should be re-enforced regularly after an initial 4 sessions.
