If you were buying a car, would you buy the one with rusty sides and an engine that spluttered? Or clothes... would you pick the ripped one from the rail, just because it was slightly cheaper?
Yet when it comes to your health and weight, you are willing to search for the cheapest option and expect the most expensive results.
Why do you hold onto that weight? Are you holding onto past habits too?
Take Jenny* a client I saw last year. She had tried every diet going and read every self help book available. Some worked for a while, but then she just piled the weight straight back on.
If these programmes worked there would just be one. They are all businesses and are all competing for your money and attention. If hypnotherapy had an advert it would probably read “I can’t make you thin but I can help you make you thin” or “take control of your self-defeating habits without feeling like you’re on a diet”.
Jenny discovered on her journey that she’d been sabotaging herself each time. Here are some of things she’d been telling herself.
‘I’ll lose weight for the holiday’. So she dieted for a few weeks and lost weight. In the process she told her subconscious to get ready "I’ll open those floodgates on food afterwards, as a reward".
‘I can’t eat chocolate, pastas and all those ‘bad’ foods when I’m dieting’. Funnily enough, after the holiday, she’d always eat more and more of those things.
So how did hypnotherapy make a life changing difference?
She had lost three stone last time I spoke to her and more importantly has not felt like she’s ever been on a diet.
