However, when people think of hypnotherapy they mistake it with Stage Hypnosis. This is when the Hypnotist gets people to come up on stage and act out embarrassing scenarios such as clucking like a chicken or believing that they have just scored the winning goal in the AFL Grand Final. There is nothing wrong with this and it is great entertainment, however it is NOT Hypnotherapy.
Hypnotherapy is just a natural occurring state, one in which we all go in and out of each day. For example – when we drive a familiar road but can’t remember the details when we arrive at our destination or being so engrossed in a favourite hobby or book and are shocked to realise how much time has passed.
When we are in this state our conscious mind, that part responsible for the constant chatter that goes on inside our minds as we go about our day, relaxes. When this happens our critical thinking takes a break and our subconscious mind, where all our behaviours and patterns are stored becomes heightened.
A Hypnotherapist helps their clients to access this altered state. For when this is achieved the subconscious then becomes more receptive to the positive suggestions given that benefit the client most.
It is not a diet !! nor does it evolve shakes, calorie counting or endless hours at the gym. It works by using the power of Hypnosis to retrain your mind to be satisfied on smaller amounts of food.
Initial trials in the UK showed positive results in the 24 out of the 25 people that participated and as a result of this success, clinical trials are currently being negotiated with the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK. This groundbreaking system is having great success across the UK, USA, Canada and Australia.
Current research is showing that even a weight loss of 5% can have significant health benefits to the body such as reducing the risk of Type 2 Diabetes, lowering Cholesterol and decreasing blood pressure. My clients that have undergone the program also report that not only do they feel more confident, now they are the shape and size that they want to be but also to having more energy, sleeping better and just happier in general.
This program that gives safe and predictable results consists of four, one on one sessions, each 60 minutes in duration. After the first session you will receive a CD and a set of guidelines to take home. When followed clients are losing on average between 2-3 kg in the first week, followed by a kilo per week thereafter.
