I am a qualified and registered hypnotherapist in Moulton, Northwich, Cheshire, near Chester, Crewe, Runcorn, Warrington and Manchester using hypnosis within hypnotherapy for a wide range of conditions including programmes to help control and to lose weight and overcome diet problems and related issues of self esteem and confidence. We are within easy traveling distance of Altrincham, Sale, Lymm, Knutsford, Holmes Chapel, Sandbach, Nantwich, Tarporley, Tarvin, Wilmslow and other towns in the Cheshire, Staffordshire, Shropshire, Derbyshire, and Lancashire areas.

Overview of Hypnotherapy and Weight Control

The use of hypnosis within hypnotherapy can be very a effective aid to control and lose weight. There are a variety of approaches which hypnotherapists can use depending upon the specific nature of the problem.

As with other habit related problems it is crucial that you yourself are motivated to bring about change and lose weight. A hypnotherapist cannot wave a magic wand and cause you to lose weight. Likewise, using hypnosis within hypnotherapy is no substitute for an effective diet programme though it can complement this and aid you in keeping to a diet.

Persons seeking help through hypnotherapy for weight loss / to lose weight should first have checked with their doctor to determine if their are any physiological/medical causes for their condition. Even if such a condition is identified hypnotherapy may be a useful complement to other treatments but it is important that such conditions should have been identified and appropriate medical interventions put in place.

Problems relating to weight may have their origins in habitual behaviour. However, issues around self-esteem, self-image, depression, lack of fulfilling interests, etc, can bring about eating and weight problems. A thorough assessment is therefore essential to determine the factors which are affecting you and to devise a programme of hypnotherapy tailored to your individual needs.

Gastric Band Hypnotherapy is also available if appropriate. Details are given below.

Assessment for Hypnotherapy and Weight Control

Therefore an assessment may include some of the following:

  • Identifying past patterns regarding your weight and diet.

  • Considering your own specific motivations for reducing weight.

  • Identifying any general factors in your life relevant to weight and diet.

  • Identifying particular circumstances when you are more likely to feeling bored.

  • Identifying your daily pattern of eating including situations where you are more likely to eat, intake of different types of food, etc.

  • Consideration of how people around you are affecting you eg: sources of support.

Programme of Hypnotherapy for Weight Control

Depending upon the above we will then agree a programme of hypnotherapy to help weight loss / to lose weight. This could include:

  • Building upon your motivations for weight loss / losing weight.

  • Work to give you more awareness and control over the portions you give yourself.

  • Strengthen positive shopping patterns for low fat foods.

  • Encourage slower and more enjoyable eating, savouring your food.

  • Build in greater awareness and control over when you know you have had sufficient.

  • Build in alternative responses for those situations/circumstances where you would normally be tempted to snack.

  • Develop inhibition for buying/eating specific fatty foods (if you wish).

  • Tackle any underlying causes which are undermining your wish for weight loss / to lose weight.

  • Develop confidence in your new identity as a thinner person.

  • Reduce negative thoughts and doubts and reinforce your confidence in your ability to succeed in weight loss / losing weight.

  • If you wish during one of the sessions we will make a recording on CD to complement the live hypnotherapy session for a nominal charge. This will be tailored to your needs and can then be used in your own home to reinforce the work we have done in the "live sessions". This has generally been found to be the best way to produce audio recordings that will be effective.

The above is not exhaustive but will give you an indication of the general approach. All of the above would involve the use of direct and indirect suggestions, visualisation, imagery, etc. Because we are working together with your unconscious mind we are tapping into resources to help you change which are usually not easily accessible to your conscious mind.

The number of sessions required is likely to be three to four depending upon the range and complexity of the issues involved. For full details of my fees please click here.

Gastric Band Hypnotherapy

The Gastric Band Hypnotherapy programme is available to clients with a BMI of 30 or more. The programme consists of an assessment session plus 5 sessions of hypnotherapy.

Subject to discussion it may be appropriate for some clients with a BMI of less than 30 to have the Hypnotic Gastric Band procedure which may then be purchased as an add on. They must first undertake the assessment session and three sessions of hypnotherapy. The appropriateness of Gastric Band Hypnotherapy will be determined during the third session of hypnotherapy.
