My first question is: are you ready to strip off?
Over many years we put on layers and layers of bad behaviours and habits around food. It’s almost like leaving a T-shirt on, then adding another one just in case it gets cold. Even if it’s 30° outside. Because it’s something you’ve always done.
So let’s have a look at these layers.
The base layer, is just like your favourite underwear that you have worn for years and years. As a child we’re told we are not allowed to leave the table until we cleared our plates. How many of you now feel guilty unless you can clear the plate in front of you? I suspect quite a few. We still feel like that little child who wants to be rewarded by words or a treat once we clear our plates.
Next comes what we will call the mid layer. The comfort layer. Just like your favourite fleece you wear on a cold autumn’s day. The comfort layer is when we turn to foods in stressful situations.
Picture the scenario, you have a bad day at work and head to the nearest reward cupboard or maybe even go to a shop on your way home. You pick up that thing that you think makes you feel better. Does it really?
Finally the outer layer where we have certain habits that we follow. Maybe a set route to work. Or dropping off the kids at school. How many stop at a local shop for a food treat, or a friend’s house for a ‘coffee’ and biscuit? We almost see it as little mini rewards for ourselves. For example managing to get the kids to school on time or being ready for work.
So how can we peel some of these layers off? Using hypnotherapy we can go back and see these ‘rewards’ for what they really were, a form of bribery to ourselves or from our peers.
Encouraging the subconscious mind to realise that eating until we are full or even over full is actually a form of bullying ourselves. It’s like telling ourselves that we’re still that small child wanting to get down from the table. Hypnotherapy encourages self esteem, self-confidence and self belief around foods
Clearing out the middle layer using hypnosis encourages the subconscious mind to remember the brevity of that false comfort and how it potentially makes the situation feel even worse. As not only did the thoughts still remain but the guilt of eating inappropriate foods or drinks was planted on the top
We have an amazing control room within us that regulates all the things body does. A lot of this without us even thinking about it. Our mind has around 60,000 thought processes. With hypnotherapy we go back in and tweak them.
Learn how to change those habits and in doing so feel back in control. Gain greater confidence, greater self esteem and greater self-control by learning to be the real ‘YOU’
My last question is… are you ready to peel back those layers?
