Weight Loss Hypnosis in Nottingham
At Balance Hypnotherapy Nottingham we do not recommend starvation diets, expensive supplements or faddy eating patterns to help you lose weight. Instead we use the power of Hypnotherapy to help you work on your weight loss in a safe and natural way by helping you change your eating habits. Hypnosis can help you to take control of your hunger, boost your willpower and even assist you by increasing your motivation to exercise. Our Weight Loss Hypnotherapy Nottingham program looks to find out the reasons why you are having difficulty losing weight and part of that problem is likely to be held in the unconscious part of your mind. Unlike other weight loss programs we try and find out the emotional reasons why you are overeating so you can find ways to remove your old bad habits and behaviours.*
Weight Loss Hypnotherapy Nottingham Treatments
We currently offer two forms of Weight Loss treatment including the famous Hypno-Band program which has helped thousands of people to lose weight all over the world. This weight loss program has featured constantly in the media and has helped people gain control over their eating habits by using a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Hypnosis.*
In addition to Gastric Band Hypnotherapy we also offer a bespoke Weight Loss treatment program. This is an individually tailored plan which is suited directly to your needs. We recognise that every client is unique and has different needs which have to be addressed. This Weight Loss Nottingham program recognises that a typical standardised plan is not always enough to get the changes that you want. During this unique treatment a comprehensive case history is taken so that an individual Weight Loss Hypnosis plan is created which is unique to you. *
Which Weight Loss Hypnosis treatment should I choose?
The Hypno-Band system is ideal people who have a Body Mass Index of 25 or above and who do not have any physiological reasons for their weight problems. Gastric Band Hypnosis is generally not recommended for individuals with thyroid problems (unless stabilised). The Virtual Gastric Band is a system which makes your subconscious believe that you have had a gastric band fitted under hypnosis and therefore is ideally suited for individuals who are great at visualisation. This Weight Loss procedure takes place over five sessions during a period of two to three months.*
Our bespoke Weight Loss Hypnotherapy Nottingham treatment is particularly useful if you need to deal with other issues in your life such as stress, depression, or a lack of self control. It can also help you to tackle the reasons why you are over eating and teach you stress reduction methods, appetite control and habit adjustment so that you recognise when you are truly hungry. This is more suitable program for people who have more than just a weight problem that needs to be resolved during therapy. *
We generally place our bespoke clients into one of two weight loss programs. The first program runs for three sessions and is suitable for people who have two stone or less to lose and who do not suffer from problems such as anxiety, depression. Our alternative program runs for five sessions and tends to be more suitable for people who have greater amounts of weight to lose and who eat emotionally. If you feel that you are unable to assess which weight loss program you should choose then feel free to call us and we will be happy to talk to you to assess your issue and help you decide.*

How Many Weight Loss Hypnotherapy sessions will I need?
The Hypno-Band program consists of five sessions. The first four sessions take place over a period of 6 to 8 weeks with the final session taking place approximately one month to six weeks later.
The bespoke Weight Loss program is a flexible program which is tailored to your needs. The number of sessions depends on the severity of the problems that need to be addressed. Generally if you have two stone or less to lose and have no serious problems with anxiety or depression we start you on a three session program. If you have more than two stone to lose then our clients are placed on a five session program. For people who want longer term support we also have an eight session program. This is recommended for individuals who have significant weight to lose.*
Are all Weight Programs the Same?
Weight loss is a complex area and therefore we assess each of our clients depending on their needs and place them into the most appropriate program. Here are just some of the areas that we work with for weight loss.
Binge Eating – Although many clients with this condition come to us for weight loss help conventional dieting is the worst way forward with this condition. In fact binge eating usually increases the more you try and restrict your food. Therefore we take a very different approach with this problem. Usually we are looking for the root cause of the issue and we know from experience that binge eaters tend to suffer from problems such as perfectionism, low self-esteem, anxiety and stress. Unlesss these problems are resolved it is likely that the binge eating behaviour will continue. We do not recommend gastric band hypnotherapy for binge eaters because of this.*
Sugar Addiction – Providing our clients who have problems with sugar addiction do not have any significant emotional issues such as anxiety or depression we tend to place them on our three session program. Generally suggestion hypnosis and aversion therapy have good results in resolving this issue. It is worth noting that some clients do have an underlying issue related to sugar. A perfect example of this is mixing the emotions of sugar with love. To illustrate an example of this imagine a small child who has a father who works away from home alot of the time. When he returns he hands the child some sweets to make up for the absence and gives them a big hug. When he heads away again the child misses the love from the parent but the subconscious is reminded that sweets and their father are linked and so they eat the sugar to give them the same happy feeling.*
Emotional and Comfort Eating – Typically emotional and comfort eaters are placed on our five session program as hypnotherapy sessions are used to explore the emotions that are linked with food. Comfort eating is used subconsciously for many reasons including stress, anger, guilt, anxiety and as a form of distraction or dissociation. Unless these underlying problems are addressed and resolved then it is unlikely that a person will lose weight for a significant amount of time. This is why so many dieters end up losing and regaining weight throughout their lifetime.*
Mindful Eating – Some of our clients simply need help in reconnecting to natural signals of fullness and hunger. If a client justs wants to work on mindful eating then we structure a three session program for them to focus on these signals. As our lives are so busy and we are generally multi-tasking it is rare that people just sit down and concentrate on their food and eat. Now people grab food inbetween meetings, eat at their desks or are reading or watching TV at the same time. This does not allow you to consciously understand whether you really need to eat at that time or help you to stop eating when you have had enough. Mindful eating techniques when combined with hypnosis can help to take time out to listen to what their body is really saying.*
Portion Control – Many of our clients find it difficult to understand what portion sizes they should be eating. We have a specialised program that helps with this problem as well as a portion control audio download which we give to all our clients to help them eat less and feel full more quickly.
Exercise Motivation – Everyone knows that taking some exercise can assist with weight loss and energy levels yet sometimes the motivation simply is not there to make that happen. Many people experience a mental block when it comes to exercise which is why we can offer a three session program to help our clients boost their motivation and willpower.
