You know you can lose the weight. You want to lose the weight. But you don't. Sound familiar?

Weight gain happens for a very simple reason: what we want in the moment overpowers our broader desire for a healthy body. Diet and exercise programs work for some people, but even then the success is often temporary. Old habits and behaviors tend to return because they were never really addressed to begin with.

Reaching and maintaining a healthy weight requires more than changing behaviors. It requires changing your state of mind. Instead obsessing over a list of dos and don'ts, my clients focus on creating change from within. Those changes include greater mindfulness surrounding food, increased motivation to make healthy choices, and releasing food as a source of emotional comfort. Once the correct mindset is in place, the healthy behaviors that lead to weight loss come naturally.

You can achieve lasting weight loss, and hypnosis can help!

Following a consultation this evening, a new client left my office voicing certainty of her success and excited for the changes to come. Now that's the way to approach hypnosis! Expentancy in large part determines an outcome, and this is especially true when working with the mind. That's the beauty of hypnosis: it works, as much as anything, because we decide it does. Because we decide to take charge!
