Now that the festive celebrations have passed and the new year begins, you may be among many who have resolved to achieve a healthier life-style and establish a better relationship with food. Hypnotherapy in Harley Street can help you to lose weight by addressing the subconscious cues which have a negative affect on your eating habits.*
Jonathan Conway provides therapeutic intervention with sessions in hypnosis or Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) face-to-face at the Conway Practice in Harley Street, or remotely by Skype, Zoom or telephone. There are various reasons for overeating or feeling compelled to consume weight-gaining comfort foods and you may well be unaware of the root cause.
This is often due to mindless eating where you are distracted by the television, reading a book, or surfing the internet without any conscious awareness of how much you are consuming. Once you learn how to appreciate what you are eating, focusing on the smell and flavour of the food on your plate, it will be easier to recognise the feeling of fullness and when your appetite has been satisfied.* Compulsive eating can also be attributed to boredom, with food as a diversion to pass the time. This has become more common during 2020 with the loss of daily routine and a limited freedom to leave the home for work or socialising.
Turning to food when anxious and stressed, is an attempt to satisfy emotional hunger rather than being physically hungry. Comfort foods are often associated with early childhood and emotional nurturing, which now evoke distant memories of security and soothing sustenance. The calming ‘feel-good’ effect however is generally short-lived, closely followed by guilt or regret and unresolved stress issues.
We’re often told as children to finish everything on our plates, even when we feel full. This can become habitual as adults, especially when socialising with others who like to consume large portions of food, leaving you compelled to follow suit as a way of social bonding and in appreciation for their hospitality.
So how can hypnotherapy in Harley Street help you to lose weight? During sessions using hypnosis while your mind is relaxed and receptive to positive suggestion, Jonathan will explore your relationship with food and address any negative self-talk which may be preventing you from reaching your weight-loss goal. Stress-reducing relaxation techniques can be introduced, together with new coping mechanisms enabling you to recognise the subconscious cues which are a trigger to the hand-to-mouth eating habit.*
With increased motivation and a true sense of self-worth, hypnotherapy in Harley Street with Jonathan at the Conway Practice provides the opportunity to achieve your target weight and to focus on your well-being. * For more information call Jonathan Conway on 07956 855 027
