Definition: A decrease in body weight for positive health outcomes
Solution focused hypnotherapy is a great resource for those seeking assistance with weight issues. Weight management is a complex topic as it is both a phycological and physical issue. We understand that sleep, genetics, hormones, stress levels, eating habits can all contribute to weight gain and that people may yoyo, losing weight only to gradually put it all back on. We also know medical issues can contribute to weight gain and that weight gain itself is a risk factor to developing cardiovascular complications such as raised blood pressure, raised cholesterol and type 2 diabetes.
In Solution Focused Hypnotherapy we explain how the brain works and how ‘eating’ can become a ‘go to’ behaviour despite our desire to be fit and healthy. How we almost have two brains, one wanting us to be a healthy weight and fit, and another one, urging us to rest and eat calorie dense food.
We know the brain has the ability to create new neural pathways, these pathways grow, when we repeatedly focus our attention in certain ways. To create healthy habits, we need to focus our attention on rehearsing healthy habits as normal, so that our brains ‘go to’ is also the one we want intellectually.
We have the advantage of using hypnosis in our sessions. Hypnosis is really no more than relaxed daydreaming. However, in this relaxed place we can by-pass the ‘critical faculty’ (the part of you that may object and complain) and allow positive messages to be absorbed by the subconscious mind. This has an enormously positive affect as healthier choices can become a very normal and pleasant thing, allowing by de fault, the body to heal and return to a more normal weight.
