If you are considering hypnotherapy for weight loss for example, you may be curious as to how it works, or have concerns as to the effects. Hypnotherapy for weight loss performed by specialist hypnotherapists here at the Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy is perfectly safe and effective.
Unlike many misconceptions, hypnotherapy does not involve being put into a deep sleep. In fact, hypnotherapy involves altering the state of consciousness. The aim is to allow your conscious mind to rest, and bring your subconscious forward. Your subconscious is seen as being a deeper state of mind, and by allowing changes to the subconscious mind, should in turn influence changes within the conscious mind, once awoken.
Hypnotherapy is effective for weight loss as it encourages your mind to begin a process of positive thinking and therefore achieve positive results. When you begin hypnotherapy for weight loss for example, you will be encouraged to enter a peaceful state of mind, yet alert to the voice of the hypnotherapist. Your breathing will slow down, and in turn your pulse will decrease also. This ensures your body and mind are relaxed and prepared for the hypnotherapy to take place, within a trance like state.
In terms of hypnotherapy for weight loss, the hypnotherapist will be looking to promote healthy eating and exercise habits. Many parts of being overweight or obese come down to compulsive habits. Hypnosis to help you lose weight will help to alleviate the compulsive habits, encourage healthy eating and regular exercise. This is especially good to kick start your motivation to lose weight, but obviously it is also important to have a desire to lose weight and follow the advice, otherwise it is not guaranteed or likely to work. As with any form of therapy, personal determination and aspirations to change are paramount to begin with.
Many health problems that can often be connected with being overweight can also be alleviated through the form of hypnotherapy. Joint problems or muscular aches and pains can be a problem due to the excess weight, as well as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and such like. When you contact a hypnotherapist for weight loss, you will discuss any of these connected issues, and over several sessions look to reduce the effects or prevent each one.
Ultimately, hypnotherapy is about achieving a positive state of mind, and allowing changes to be made to the deepest parts of the brain which is more adept at maintaining a healthier lifestyle.
