When you hear the word hypnosis, an image of a crazy doctor with swinging pendulums pops up. This is an inaccurate image given to us by Hollywood.
However, hypnosis is nothing like that. In fact, over the years, it has become an effective therapeutic procedure. One area in which hypnosis has proven to be really effective is weight loss.
Before we dive in deep, let’s take a look at some assumptions that hypnotherapists might make regarding weight loss with hypnosis:
For hypnosis to work, you need to believe that the process works and should be really committed to it.
It requires a strong intention to succeed. You really need to stick to the plan provided to you by your hypnotherapist.
The whole idea of hypnotherapy rests on the idea that our minds have immense capabilities. If you can train the mind, almost anything can be achieved.
Imagination plays a very important role in hypnosis. This is the reason it involves a wide variety of imagination techniques. People who are more imaginative are more likely to achieve quick results.
Different hypnotherapists have different techniques to tackle the weight loss issue. Generally, it involves a multi-sensory approach. The idea is to remove mental barriers and make the client feel in control of her situation.
It tackles counterproductive issues like binge eating, mindless eating, cravings, lethargy and so on. It communicates with the subconscious mind and equips the person to act in healthier ways.
Many people believe that hypnosis requires the patient to get into a dream-like state. However, that’s not true.
In fact, it’s the other way around. The patient is more focused and attentive and knows what is happening. At no point during the session does the patient lose control.
It is in this state that the hypnotherapist uses therapeutic techniques to bring about positive change.
Depending on your condition, the hypnotherapist might take 6 to 10 sessions. Once you start, you will begin to notice changes in your thinking patterns.
The hypnotherapist keeps assessing the improvements and suggesting new ways. Finally, the client will have resources to make the weight loss regimen work for them.
