Along with Smoking Cessation, Weight Loss is one of the best-known uses of hypnosis. Almost everyone has heard of or knows someone who has used hypnosis for one of these.
Why is hypnosis so famous for these two items? Because hypnosis works to help reinforce what you are already doing. As part of a broader effort that may include exercise, nutritional changes and the adoption of healthy habits, hypnosis can create motivation and follow through. Most people who are trying to lose weight have already tried several methods with varying degrees of success. Sometimes the weight comes off, then goes back on. Other times, it just never comes off in the first place. In still different times, the entire process is so miserable that it’s not worth continuing the effort.
With hypnosis, your subconscious begins to recognize rewards from progress as more substantial than rewards from the food. When that happens, you start to celebrate victories, even small ones. While eating something may bring you instant pleasure, you will later regret it. However, deep down your subconscious craves the ultimate satisfaction of experiencing joy in the present by doing the right thing, and the subsequent enjoyment of celebrating that triumph afterward. Your psyche is a smug thing and once it’s fully supporting you, making progress is filled with triumphs and pleasure, rather than guilt and setbacks.
Every walked by some snack a dozen times and consciously said you weren’t going to do it, then found it in your hand later? That’s the cycle we need to break. Fortunately, hypnosis bypasses your inner doubting Thomas and makes it possible. What are you capable of if you ultimately believe that you can do it? Weight loss can be just the beginning.

If your goal is to lose a significant amount of weight, it is crucial to remember that we highly recommend, and may even strongly insist, on getting a referral from a healthcare professional. Additionally, having a well-structured plan to collaborate with a trainer, nutritionist, or other experts is highly recommended. I want to be part of a winning team that ensures your success!
I decline more weight-loss clients than I accept. Yes, you read that correctly. That is often because I have concerns about the level of committment that the client is ready for. To achieve weight loss, one must be fully committed. You need to be willing to do the work, make the sacrifices and use every tool at your disposal. In most cases, that means I will ask to coordinate services with your nutritionist and/or trainer. It is often best if we meet and talk before you book a single paid session. During this 30-minute consultation, I will assess your overall plan and if we choose to work together, we will come up with a schedule.
Please email me so that we can arrange to meet prior to your booking a paid appointment.
