Weight Loss

Do you:

  • Eat when you are bored, lonely, sad, angry or tired?
  • Think about food constantly?
  • Obsess over weighing yourself?
  • Overeat at meal times?
  • Try loads of different diets, lose weight then pile it back on again?
  • Binge on certain foods?

Eating isn't the solution if hunger isn't the problem.

Would you love to be naturally slim and think like a slim person? Finding diets hard to stick to? Losing willpower and motivation after a few days? Hypnosis can break those old eating habits and constant thinking about food and what you can and can't eat. It will break the cycle of binge eating and yoyo dieting for good. Leaving you feeling lighter and free to live your life how you have always wanted to.

Diets based on restriction and willpower alone just do not work. Food has a meaning to us whether it is a social thing, something we do when we are sad, angry or lonely. For many people, it is an addiction: a vicious cycle. Feel low comfort - eat, feel fat and bloated, feel even lower, eat more and so it goes on. Stealing time, money and thoughts. Many people who try dieting will have low self-esteem, a poor body image and will have an inner dialogue...one minute strong and saying 'No! I am going to be good' then 'Oh go on why not you are fat anyway you might as well'..... What is your inner dialogue?

I can teach you how to think like a naturally healthy, slim person. To think as food as fuel, not comfort. Too much food is stored as unwanted used energy. We can ditch those scales and talk about what size you want to be, not the weight. Stop calorie counting and enjoy the 80/20 rule (80% Good healthy food 20% Treat yourself) and a low GI healthy life style. I can help you to really recognise when you feel full and enjoy every mouthful slowly. You will leave the session with a very different healthier outlook on food. It will not be the main thought and focus anymore. You will feel lighter brighter with more energy and concentration. Best of all, you will start to enjoy being you, being kind to you.

A Success Story

"I went to see Kirsty because I was struggling with motivation, binge-eating and depression. When I was alone in the house, I would become quite down and miserable and, because of my low mood, I would seek comfort in junk food and binge on crisps, chocolate, cake and biscuits. Once I had finished eating my way through the cupboard, I would then feel more miserable as I had an ongoing battle with my weight since the birth of my daughter in 2009.

After just one session with Kirsty, I turned it all around. She asked me what I would like to do with my time instead of feeling down and binge-eating and, as I am a very crafty person, I wanted to have the motivation to finish various craft projects I had started, and to lose the weight I had gained during my binge-eating and pregnancy.

Since the session, I no longer have binge-eating sessions and now have so much more motivation and energy. I have also successfully lost 8lb and fell pregnant with my second baby and during this pregnancy I have maintained a healthy weight.

I am now looking forward to June 2012 and the birth of my baby. I can honestly say that once the baby is born, I will have the motivation to exercise and lose any weight I have gained during pregnancy."
