Healthy Weight Management with Brighton Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy in Brighton & Harley Street for weight lossUnderstanding your relationship with food and the emotional triggers responsible for disordered eating habits, is a vital step in achieving healthy weight management. You may already have become aware that fad or crash dieting isn’t a long term solution, as this often results in failure and disappointment when counting calories and food restriction isn’t sustainable. Support to lose weight with hypnotherapy in Brighton can be found at The Conway Practice, where a holistic approach will explore how positive changes can be made.*

Compulsive eating habits, like many behavioural patterns, often have complex origins rooted in a combination of factors. While each person’s journey into developing disordered eating practices may vary, there are common threads in how this begins.

For some, mindless or overeating starts as a coping mechanism for managing emotions such as stress, anxiety, despondency, or boredom. Food becomes a source of comfort or distraction, offering temporary relief from negative feelings. You may have found that over time this reliance on food to regulate emotions can evolve into a compulsive pattern, as you learn to associate eating with emotional relief. This is particularly common if you have a low sense of worth and lack self-esteem.

Early experiences and learned behaviours within the family environment can also shape your eating habits. Childhood exposure to restrictive diets, erratic eating patterns, or emotional eating influenced by caregivers where food is seen as a reward or discipline, can influence the development of an eating dependence later in life.

As these eating habits take hold, they often become intensified through a cycle of negative reinforcement. The temporary relief or pleasure derived from overeating validates the behaviour, leading to a sense of dependence on food as a coping mechanism. Over time, this can escalate, and is characterised by a loss of control over eating behaviours, with a negative impact on physical and emotional well-being.

Hypnosis is a safe and effective therapeutic process which will enable you to reframe any negative beliefs and self-limiting thoughts stored in your subconscious mind.* Positive affirmations can be introduced, together with new coping mechanisms and distraction methods.* You will learn how to recognise the difference between emotional and physical hunger, helping you to avoid the compulsion to rely on food for comfort.*  Relaxation techniques will reduce stress and anxiety, ensuring you have the right mindset to achieve a healthier lifestyle and improve your well-being.*
