That, combined with its ease of use and relative affordability, makes it a wonderful choice for those who are looking to change unwanted behaviours and habits.

How is hypnotherapy finding its way to facilitate weight loss?

In hypnotherapy, the therapist will begin your session by describing how hypnosis functions. They’ll then discuss your specific goals so that the session can be tailored to your individual needs. Once the therapist has built a rapport with you and a sense of trust has been established between you,  you will be guided into a hypnotic trance state so that you become accepting of suggestions around your eating and weight control behaviors.

Your therapist may also assist you to envisage yourself accomplishing the goals through imparting vivid mental images.

Some additional tips to use as an adjunct to your weight loss hypnotherapy sessions:
