Understanding your relationship with food is a crucial step towards healthy weight management. Weight-loss support with hypnotherapy in Brighton is available at The Conway Practice, or remotely by Zoom, Skype or telephone, if you find this more convenient.* During therapeutic intervention with hypnosis, Jonathan Conway will explore how the food you eat is related to your mood and how you can change any deep-seated, negative eating habits and beliefs.* Emotional and mindless eating are two common but distinct patterns of consuming food that often contribute to unhealthy eating and weight management issues. Understanding these behaviours is essential for anyone striving to lose weight and to improve their well-being.*
Emotional eating is a response to subconscious triggers such as stress, anxiety, sadness, or boredom. In these moments, food becomes a source of comfort and distraction. You may find yourself relying on food to cope with your feelings, seeking solace in sugary, high-calorie snacks or comfort foods. This association with food for comfort or reward can often be traced back to early childhood, without any conscious awareness of the origin. Emotional eating can temporarily soothe distress, but it doesn’t address the underlying issues. Over time, it can lead to weight gain and a cycle of emotional eating that can be difficult to break. Hypnotherapy is a safe, holistic approach to re-framing any negative thoughts by introducing positive affirmations and new coping mechanisms to manage stress and anxiety.*
Mindless eating, on the other hand occurs when you consume food without paying full attention to what or how much you’re eating. This often happens in front of the TV, while scrolling through social media, or during other distractions. This can result in overeating when you aren’t fully aware of your hunger cues and it’s easy to lose track of portion sizes and make unhealthy food choices. Hypnotherapy for weight-loss will help you to combat these behaviour patterns and to develop self-awareness around eating.* This involves paying attention to your fullness cues and to recognise the difference between physical and emotional hunger.*
Relaxation techniques and calming methods will enable you take proactive steps to address your eating patterns, make better food choices and to maintain a more balanced and mindful approach to eating.* Hypnotherapy support for healthy weight management will provide guidance and strategies for long-term success in achieving a healthier relationship with food.*
