A common challenge for many during the long months of lock-down has been weight management. With help to lose weight with hypnotherapy in Brighton at the Conway Practice, these issues can be addressed by identifying the subconscious prompts responsible for your food dependence.* There can be various reasons for an inability to control your eating habits, including boredom, a need for comfort or as compensation for social isolation.
During the hypnotherapy sessions, Jonathan Conway will help you to recognise the triggers which are relevant to you.* There is no one-size-fits all approach in therapeutic intervention. Boredom for example often leads to mindless eating when you reach for food simply to pass the time, with little or no conscious awareness of how much you are consuming. Comfort eating is often related to distant memories of childhood when your favourite food was given as a reward or as a soothing method. These memories remain stored within the subconscious mind and are triggered during stressful situations in an attempt to reduce anxiety.
Hypnosis enables any negative thoughts and self-limiting beliefs to be replaced with positive affirmations and new coping mechanisms. Hypnotherapy is a safe and relaxing experience similar to a pleasant day-dream, while you remain completely in control throughout the sessions.* Contrary to a common misconception, you can’t be made to do anything against your will.
If your eating habits originate from an anxious state of mind, stress-relieving strategies can be put in place which will be easy to carry out in your daily life. Relaxation methods will reduce anxiety and lessen your reliance on food for comfort and emotional support.* The hand-to-mouth habit can also be addressed with the practice of mindful eating and the recognition of the difference between emotional and physical hunger.*
Weight loss with hypnotherapy in Brighton can be achieved and a healthier eating regime put in place for long-term weight management.* If you are unable to travel for face-to-face sessions at The Conway Practice, Jonathan also provides remote coaching by Zoom, Skype or telephone.
