Weight Management

Can hypnotherapy help you with weight management?

The power of our minds can significantly improve weight management. Furthermore, it has an impact on our psychological wellbeing and general quality of life. Importantly it sustains it’s effects over time. However, I direct most of my attention on reducing stress levels.

The primary stress hormone is known as cortisol and also acts as a steroid.  This is produced by the adrenal glands. It regulates the way you use fuel and is essential for recouping energy following stress.  So with excess levels of cortisol the appetite for sugary / high calorie foods increases.

I help you reduce the negative aspects of living a stressful / anxious lifestyle, naturally reducing cortisol within the body. We also work on the associated symptoms of stress, anxiety within sessions. Naturally I employ the utmost sensitivity and respect during your consultation and therapy. Hypnosis sessions involve deep relaxation, positive suggestions and various imagery techniques.  And I also provide a CD to take away to help ensure the most effective results.


Will I be under your control (most people ask this) ?

Not at all. You will not lose control of yourself. And as a result I cannot make you do anything you do not want to do.

What if I cannot be hypnotised?

Nearly everyone can enter the hypnotic state. The depth of hypnosis is irrelevant to a successful outcome. The intelligent individual with a high motivation for change will achieve the most.

Will I get stuck in hypnosis?

It is not possible to get stuck in hypnosis. People emerge naturally from hypnosis, particularly if there is a need to do so.

Is it safe?

Yes, I trained at the prestigious Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training in Plymouth.  Therefore, hypnotherapy is safe in the hands of a qualified practitioner like myself.

What will it cost?

FREE initial consultation followed up by hourly sessions at £55

Evidence shows that 6 sessions of treatment can work well. I also offer the opportunity to top these up in the longer term. Sometimes, hypnotherapy can work in a few sessions, or just one. I will monitor your progress on a session by session basis and make recommendations from there.  The crucial element is attitude. Without determination to overcome your problems, hypnotherapy is not likely to be successful. Your motivation to change is the key to a successful outcome. Motivation means more than just wanting to be eating more healthily. Consequently, it means being determined to overcome the symptoms. Therefore, the attitude I expect to see from you is  “I will achieve my aims”.
