Healthy Weight Management with Hypnotherapy in Brighton

HYpnotherapy in Harley StreetCompulsive eating, also known as binge eating disorder (BED), is characterised by episodes of consuming food even though there is no physical hunger. This is often accompanied by feelings of guilt and shame. This leads to an increased appetite, decreased feelings of satisfaction after eating and a greater susceptibility to stress and negative emotions. Healthy weight management with hypnotherapy in Brighton at The Conway Practice will take a holistic approach by exploring the origin of your reliance on food to deal with everyday challenges in your personal and professional life.*

Emotional factors may also play a role in compulsive eating. Many people turn to food as a go-to coping method to manage anxiety and stress and they may use food as a way to self-soothe when feeling stressed or overwhelmed. Additionally, negative body image, low self-esteem and a fear of weight gain can lead to obsessive thoughts about food and a preoccupation with dieting, which can trigger binge eating episodes. Identifying the subconscious prompts with therapeutic intervention during hypnosis will enable you to recognise and address these negative responses.*

During weight management hypnotherapy sessions with Jonathan Conway you will feel calm and comfortable, similar to the experience of a pleasant day-dream.* Hypnosis is a state of heightened suggestibility, enabling the introduction of new coping mechanisms and positive affirmations.* Relaxation and distraction techniques will allow you to re-gain control and divert your focus away from food.*

Environmental factors also have a part to play in emotional or mindless eating. There may be a history of dieting, cultural pressures to be thin and easy access to high-calorie, low-nutrient foods which contribute to a negative eating pattern.  For example, yo-yo or crash dieting can lead to feelings of deprivation and trigger episodes of overeating, heightening a negative eating disorder. Therapeutic support to lose weight with hypnosis in Brighton will address your relationship with food and enable you recognise the difference between emotional and physical hunger.*

Confidential hypnotherapy sessions with Jonathan can be held at The Conway Practice, or remotely by Zoom, Skype or telephone if preferred.
