If you are ready to start a new weight management regime, you may well find it beneficial to address your typical eating habits and your relationship with food.
During the recent months while many of us have spent more time in the home with easy to access food without waiting for set break-times, eating has frequently become a compensation or prop to cope with various personal issues. Jonathan Conway has 25 years of experience as a qualified Hypnotherapist and NLP Master Practitioner, providing weight loss support with life coaching sessions by Skype, Zoom or telephone, exploring the subconscious cravings for food.*
You may have experienced comments by family, friend or colleagues that all you need to do in order to lose weight is to eat less. However weight management isn’t as simple as that, as you may already have discovered. Jonathan will listen carefully to your concerns and discuss what role food plays in your daily life.*
Does it represent a form of comfort and reward, or to relieve periods of boredom or stress? Identifying the subconscious prompts to this hand-to-mouth habit can be the first step towards establishing a healthier eating pattern where you are the one in control.*
Comfort eating triggered by stress and anxiety often results in brief feelings of relief, followed by an emotional void. An unbalanced relationship with food can relate back to childhood when parents or caregivers provided food as an expression of various emotions such as love and comfort, or control and discipline. These early recollections remain stored within the subconscious mind and are generally responsible for eating to satisfy emotional hunger, when there is no physical need for food.* Low self-esteem and a lack of confidence can trigger patterns of compulsive eating.
During the weight loss coaching sessions, Jonathan will help you to recognise your food attachment style and to put in place positive coping skills as building blocks for a healthier lifestyle. Mindless snacking can be replaced with intuitive eating once you understand the emotional impulses.* Life coaching can also be beneficial for overcoming any negative self-talk and your inner critic which may have been limiting your motivation and success in achieving your weight loss goal.*
Jonathan will introduce self-hypnosis techniques and other calming practices to assist in reducing anxiety and stress, with a therapeutic and holistic approach. Call today on 07956 855 027
