Does Hypnotherapy & NLP Really Work For Weight Loss?

Weight Loss is a very popular program at our Hypnotherapy & NLP Practice with our clients online.

Over more than 24 years we have helped our clients achieve significant changes in their diet habits and physical shape.

Imagine your life as you want it to be, feeling thinner, fitter, healthier & glowing all over ....

There is no one obstacle to list here.  Instead there are many reasons why people find themselves stuck in a merry go around of losing and gaining weight for example;

  • no motivation to get started as the fear of failure overrides the positive desire
  • lethargy around physical activity with zero desire to sign up for another gym not to ever go to
  • addictions to certain foods or food types eg chocolate or carbs
  • fear of failure and either rejection or judgement of others
  • beliefs such as: 'I can't do it', 'its in my genes', 'I'm destined to be overweight', 'people won't like me when I'm thinner'
  • physical problems eg food intolerances, under active thryoid
  • addictions to other substances eg alcohol, cannabis
  • hormonal imbalances

Sometimes Physical delays in Weight Loss start with the mind

Whatever you believe is causing you the problems you've faced around maintaining your weight, keeping it off or losing the excess, we're here to help you explore and resolve those issues.

Hypnotherapy and NLP have both been effective tools when it comes to helping clients lose the weight by first altering their mindset.

You cannot change what you do not see ...

Our first step when we meet is to explore what you believe are your biggest obstacles.

Some of the changes will occur easily and others may require some deeper exploration.

Whether the problem appears to be a physical one or a psychological trigger, we will get to the roots together, and dismantle their power.

We have worked with clients who have a physical diagnosis who go on to challenge their unconscious programming and recover control over their body and it's functions.

Sometimes, we need someone with a deeper understanding of the mind body connection, to guide us to our ultimate goals and uproot the damaging beliefs we find there.

  • We understand the mind body connection. 
  • There is no judgement over what went wrong before, rather enquiry to help further our work in reversing negative beliefs or removing unconscious fears.
  • Hypnosis has been shown to be effective even when in deep trance and you receive a trance meditation as part of your program.
  • If there is a deep rooted anxiety around losing weight and what that might mean, we uncover that and using a variety of techniques, eg TFT, NLP, Havening etc, we move the anxiety out of the way of your goals.
  • Depending on the amount of weight and issues causing the gain, we offer programs to suit.
  • Leah Butler-Smith worked with Paul Mckenna for years on his Weight Loss seminars and has first hand experience of the most effective techniques he recommends.
  • With an understanding that weight gain and weight loss are more a mental issue than a physical one, we work towards understanding and then appropriate mindset/ programming change in equal measure.
  • Hypnotherapy combined with other techniques is still considered the most effective way to achieve lasting weight loss.

Weight Loss Weighing On The Mind

We can understand why some clients feel they have no option but to approach their overeating as something they have no control over and therefore to believe that only either having an operation or following the mind programming version, can help.

Hypnotic Gastric band has seen a lot of publicity and many who've attempted the program, have enjoyed success.

Clearly the choice between a major operation and the potential complications associated with that, versus hypnotic suggestions of the effects of the gastric band through a Hypnotherapy session - is an easy one to make.

Gastric Band operations (for bariatric surgery there are several options), have the effect of causing the patient to feel full more quickly and find overeating more difficult.

However, it is known that 20-30% of patients will regain weight even after surgery as nothing has changed in the way they think.

At Enhanced Life Practice, we've personally met several unhappy patients who wished they'd chosen mindset changes over an operation, but then hindsight is a wonderful thing!

The First mindset gastric band using Hypnosis is over ten years old

Beginning with Gastric Mind Band the original developers were Martin & Marion Shirran.  Virtual gastric band programs are known by many other names such as: Virtual Gastric Band, Hypnoband, the Hypnotic Gastric Band, and the Hypnosis Gastric Band.  Trainers and experienced Hypnotherapists developing their own format increased the number of variations on the theme.

At the Enhanced Life Practice, we adopt a mindset of doing what is right for you.  This involves a mix of exploring the finer details surrounding the problem you are having, how that is affecting your life, what your existing motivations are for change and the steps you've already attempted to achieve that.

We use a mix of Hypnotherapy, NLP and other advanced techniques.

What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is the combination of Hypnosis (relaxed focus) with therapeutic techniques that allow for rapid change to occur.  Focused attention provides an opportunity for the treatment to positively affect the client in resolution of their medical or psychological concern.  Popularized by 17th and 18th century psychologists such as James Braid and Milton H. Erickson.  Read More
