Have you experienced that during your diet, while eating a simple butterscotch, you start wishing if it was a butterscotch ice cream? If your answer is yes, then you might need to get a hypnotherapist as soon as possible so that you can learn how to enjoy the butterscotch and not have that ice cream as a second notion. I know it’s difficult to imagine a life without your favorite food just because your diet plan doesn’t allow you to eat it.
What is the Hypnotherapy process?
It is a wonderful aid to effect the patient’s state positively while being in an unconscious state. It allows the person to explore mental and emotional stresses that are often hidden from their conscious mind. During this whole therapy process, the patient needs to build his/her trust with the hypnotherapist in order to have better suggestions and reliable discussions.
How Hypnotherapy helps in weight loss?
As Hypnosis is a state of inner absorption and close attention, the treatment is done using mental images along with verbal repetition of words. During the treatment process, as the
patient is paying close attention, and responding deeply to the suggestions, his behavior changes to help him to lose weight. Though this treatment is becoming increasingly acceptable as the best means of weight loss, many people are still raising questions asking does it really work?

How Is it is done?
This therapy is used as a magnificent aid to weight loss. This is what happens during this treatment:
- Firstly, your hypnotherapist will guide you to go into a state of deep relaxation.
- After making sure that the patient is in his/her relaxation mode, the coach will be able to access the patient’s unconscious mind just as if he/she is having a daydream.
- Now, carefully choosing a good range of words that can be highly effective, he investigates the patient’s reasons for overeating and provides him with some good suggestions using the technique of thinking through visualization. The patient has a full control and can reject any suggestion made by his coach.
- Having a series of session with the coach, the patient will end up learning how to control the negative emotions and habits which result in over eating habits, replacing them with the positive suggestions of the hypnotherapist.
