According to the National Center for Health Statistics, roughly 71.6% of American adults are considered overweight or obese--a staggering number that continues to grow each year.
Because of these facts, most Americans are no stranger to the hundreds of diets, weight loss programs, and get-skinny-quick health schemes designed to help us lose weight fast. Yet, despite this massive abundance in resources, nothing ever seems to work. If one pound comes off today, two more replace it tomorrow.
Deep down, we all know eating healthy and exercise is the true key to weight loss--not some miracle pill or secret health plan. Unfortunately, that still doesn’t make losing weight any easier.
Rather than force another diet or join a new gym, however, hypnosis and hypnotherapy addresses the mental obstacles (rather than just the physical ones) that stand in your way from losing weight. By changing the way you think about food, exercise--and most importantly, yourself--hypnosis gives you the discipline and confidence needed to start losing weight and keep it off sustainably.
Hypnosis is a largely misunderstood practice based on a lot of negative and exaggerated stereotypes. The truth is, it’s a widely practiced and proven therapy treatment that uses intense concentration and focus to help make people more aware of their behaviors and how those behaviors influence their mind and body overall.
Applying this method to helping people lose weight, individuals receiving treatment will begin to understand their personal habits involved with overeating, recognize what those negative and self-destructive patterns involved with food look like, and then use that knowledge to establish positive eating habits that are conducive to a healthier lifestyle.
If you’re skeptical about hypnotherapy or feeling frustrated about not being able to manage your weight, we invite you to answer the questions below:
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, it’s not your fault that you haven’t been successful at losing weight. Instead, it’s more likely that nobody has ever taught you how to get yourself to make healthy choices consistently, over the long term. You may be thinking that you just haven’t yet found the right diet that will work for you. But, it’s not that you haven’t found the right diet, you just haven’t learned the right mindset.
At Pathways Counseling Services, we’re firm believers that every person needs to be in a healthy headspace to lose weight and keep it off. While a healthy diet and regular exercise is a critical component of losing weight, only a disciplined person in the right frame of mind can turn that into a consistent and effective practice.
With that in mind, our multi-step weight loss hypnosis program is customized to meet your specific weight loss challenges and goals. Led by a trained hypnotherapist, you will receive 1-on-1 treatment that will train you on how to manage hunger, navigate challenging environments, cope with stress or boredom, get back on track after any lapses in behavior, and a variety of other critical life skills and mental habits that will help you overcome the mental challenges that have kept you from losing weight in the past.
