Hypnosis is very effective in helping people who need to lose weight, as any experienced hypnotherapist will deal with the underlying causes and thinking patterns behind a person's weight problem. It really doesn't matter if you need to lose only a few pounds or several - once these issues have been resolved the weight should drop off easily.
This article will look behind some of the reasons why someone becomes overweight. It is important that your Hypnotherapist understands completely why you have been struggling to lose weight or to maintain a healthy weight.
The most obvious reasons are over-eating or under-eating as the body stores fat in both cases, in order to use it at a future date. If you are eating more calories than your body needs then clearly you need to cut down on the culprit foods, however everyone has different dietary needs so your therapist will need to have an understanding of food combinations and healthy and junk foods.
Most people are suffering from one or the other type of depression, one acute, the other chronic. The condition is so controlling and so painful, and the depressed person so needful, that skilled help is essential. Most counsellors who use "talking out things" as their therapy are used to dealing with depression and anxiety. However, for many people, talk therapy can seem to take forever; and, often, even when the reasons for the depression are known, the depression symptoms remain." What is depression? How does it affect people? Depression is not "the blues." Feeling blue is a temporary condition. Depression seems like it will never end and if not treated can get worse. It can last for weeks or months--even many years. Long-term depression is insidious because it can give rise to other conditions and symptoms, some of which can be very serious even life thrusting.
Insomnia, from the Latin "in" (not) and "somnus" (sleep), is a condition in which people have a difficulty falling asleep and remaining asleep. It includes a broad spectrum of sleep disorders, from lack of quantity of sleep to lack of quality of sleep. Insomnia is often separated into three types. Transient insomnia occurs when symptoms last from a few days to a few weeks. Acute or short-term insomnia is when symptoms last for several weeks. Chronic insomnia is characterized by insomnia that lasts for months and years.
Insomnia can affect all age groups and is more common in adult women than adult men. The condition can lead to poor performance at work or school, obesity, depression, anxiety, poor immune system function, reduced reaction time, and an increased risk and severity of long-term disease.
Unlike smoking cessation, which I normally treat in one session (unless further ones are required), those seeking to lose weight will not see an immediate result, therefore it is a good idea to have follow up sessions. However, there is no hard and fast rule to this and some clients just want some motivation to get started on a fitness plan as well many clients need hypnosis sessions for over eating or need an increase in desire to exercise. Losing weight is not easy, and clients should realize that the weight is not going to drop off overnight. As hypnotherapists we are giving clients suggestions that they need in order to eventually reach their goal weight, the mind needs time to take the suggestions and make them true for you as well you as the client must at a deep level accept them as well.. There can be a number of reasons why someone is overweight, therefore it is important we take a full case history and explore the habits and the secondary gain attached to you.
