Messages ‘fed’ to us (usually unintentionally) when we were younger can be stored by the immature brain, and can often resurface later in life without us consciously realising that they are there. Common triggers often include: guilt (“Think of all the starving children in Africa”), comfort (“Have a piece of chocolate to make you feel better”), boredom, and love or acceptance (“If you’re a good boy/girl you can have some sweeties”).
We are led to believe from a young age that food has the ability to satisfy us emotionally as well as physically, and over the years this belief can lead to cycles of dieting (and we all know that diets don’t work), yo-yo-ing weight, and dissatisfaction with our shape/size and how we look and feel about ourselves.
Cognitive Hypnotherapy can help you change your relationship with food (and, ultimately, with yourself) by helping you to re-evaluate these unconscious beliefs from an adult perspective, meaning that it is possible to change the way you think & feel (and therefore the way you behave) with regards to food. No more diets, no more unwanted eating patterns or behaviours, no more feeling guilty for everything that you put in your mouth. Just seeing food for what it is – a source of energy that you can enjoy.
My approach of working with you to help you let go of your unconscious beliefs about food, combined with helping you find it easier (and preferable) to choose healthier foods, reduce portion sizes and increase (and actually enjoy) the amount of exercise you do, can be very successful in helping you to lose weight healthily and naturally, in a way that is sustainable for you.
So whether it’s a few pounds that you want to lose or several stone, or perhaps you just want to stop the unhelpful thoughts/feelings/behaviours that you have around food, contact me to find out more about how Cognitive Hypnotherapy can help you be the you that you want to be.
