Hypnotherapy for Food Addiction
An addiction to food is classified when you find it impossible to control your intake of food, in particular junk foods or high sugar food. If you have this problem you may have tried every weight loss solution that is out there but although you may have lost weight in the short term you may have found yourself falling back into your old habits and gaining weight again. Whilst some food addicts are overweight in some cases they are not because they will have used extreme measures to avoid putting on weight such as excessive exercise, purging or limiting of foods. Hypnotherapy for Food Addiction works with you to understand the psychological reasons why you may have this problem and then helps you to make changes to the way that you are thinking.*
Although many of the people we treat may believe that they are unable to control their food because they are greedy or lazy this is very rarely the case. Usually we find that there are deeper psychological problems which are held at a subconscious level causing the need for that food. Those reasons are numerous but typically may include anxiety, anger, guilt, sadness, grief or even abuse. At some point in that persons life the food helped them to deal with a problematic situation. From that point forward the food becomes associated with good feelings, safety or even reward and therefore the cravings for it increase.
A typical example of this can be seen with many people who have gained so much weight that they undergo gastric band or bypass surgery. At first many of these people will shed stones in weight and feel healthy for the first time in years. In many people these significant changes don’t last and before you know it they are craving the food in the same way they were before the surgery. They will find ways to cheat the operation and slowly pile on the weight again often ending up larger than they were before. This is because the psychological reason for their food addiction was never addressed. Hypnotherapy for Food Addiction can help you to understand the reasons for your problem and work with you to change the way you feel.
Food Addiction Help
At London Weight Loss Hypnotherapy we are experienced in working with food addiction. Generally we ask any potential clients looking to undergo our program to expect to undertake a minimum of five sessions. During these sessions we will be taking a comprehensive case history of your problem so that we understand exactly how it is impacting your life. Once this information has been gathered we start the process by teaching you hypnosis so that you can achieve the depth levels we need to retrieve information from your subconscious mind.
Once you are able to achieve a state of hypnosis quickly and easily our sessions move to the interactive stage where we will ask you a series of questions whilst in trance. At all times you will be aware of what you are saying however because you are more relaxed you may find that information and memories appear in your mind which you have never associated with your problem. Over a series of sessions we are aiming to get to the root cause of your problem and then help change the way your mind thinks so that food is no longer thought of as the solution to dealing with the emotion.*
