One of today’s callers wants to lose weight with hypnosis and hynotherapy. In the FREE 20 minute phone consultation I had with her, she shared with me that she is an “emotional eater”.
Together we discussed what might be the unconscious drive underneath her emotional eating. We quickly determined that the first real issue to tackle and resolve was her anxiety pattern that had been driving her emotional eating pattern and ultimately her over weight problem. Her eating pattern was a form of self hypnosis and self medication, followed by guilt, shame, and helplessness.
She is now very excited about using hypnosis and hypnotherapy to end the cycle of destruction that she’s been struggling with for so many years, i.e., conscious or unconscious unhealthy eating patterns due to her underlying anxiety.
She began to understand that dealing with her anxiety could improve her entire life and relationships, starting with herself. She could also see that by taking back control of her own life with the use of hypnosis, she could finally take charge of her eating behavior.
And, it made sense to her that without dealing with the anxiety first, the hypnosis for weight loss would be a mere band-aid, at best, or as she’d done in the past, turn to another dysfunctional pattern to seek comfort when she felt anxious or worried.
