Do you love eating chocolate? It’s no surprise if you do as, apparently, we are a nation of chocolate lovers. For all who love chocolate, Easter is a very special time and very soon we can over-indulge ourselves in a chocolate Easter eggs binge and console ourselves that it is only once a year.
Unfortunately the pleasure of biting into that sugary chocolate mix, especially for those with a sweet tooth, can have a detrimental effect on our weight, particularly if we are trying to lose some. For those of us trying to lose or control their weight. Easter can provide a challenge that may need some help to overcome.
If you are looking for help in weight management then it is worth your while booking an appointment for a free initial consultation with a Clinical Solution-Focused Hypnotherapist, where you can learn more about the therapy and how it could help you in managing your weight. A key area where Clinical Hypnotherapy can help is by encouraging a healthy eating lifestyle which can aid weight control.
Sometimes the stresses and anxieties that arise in our day-to-day living can result in many reaching for those sugary foods and junk foods to offer a quick sugar/comfort fix. Even though by now we know it isn’t good for us and can be detrimental to our weight control we can’t seem to help ourselves and make a more healthy eating choice. That quick comfort, reward or temptation to snack on unhealthy foods is not only detrimental to our weight management but also potentially damaging to our general health and wellbeing, as by adding those extra pounds to our weight could lead to further anxiety and stress in many cases.
Solution-focused Hypnotherapy is specifically designed to reduce stress levels and so promote a calmer, more relaxed, attitude towards life. By doing so, we are able to make better decisions about what we eat and when we eat it. When our anxieties rise part of our brain can sometimes fool us into thinking that we need a ‘sugar buzz’ to help us, when, in fact, a piece of fruit would be far healthier physically and, when we reflect on what we have snacked on, probably emotionally as well.
Solution-focused Hypnotherapy will encourage you to look at solutions and positive outcomes rather than anxieties and negatives. This approach can help you take more control of your thought patterns and emotions, which, in turn, can help you take control of those ‘emotional and stressed eating’ patterns. Solution-focused Hypnotherapy can help you to work towards making healthier food choices and a healthier lifestyle.
Sessions generally last for an hour and the approach is to focus on working with you so you can make the changes you want to make. When people decide to embrace the changes they want to make then real change can happen, generally within nine-twelve sessions, possibly less, depending on the needs of the individual.
The structure of the session is designed to encourage positive thinking during the course of the first 35 minutes or so prior to the actual hypnosis itself – which lasts for around 20 minutes.
During this time you will be guided into a state of deep relaxation so your mind can start to feel positive about life and make decisions that are beneficial for you – including eating healthily.
Clinical Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy can be used to help other issues, such as to improve confidence, sleep patterns, to ease anger and anxiety-based issues, and for smoking cessation.
