Hypnotherapy For Fast Weight Loss

Hypnosis For Fast Weight Loss

Hypnotherapy, Hypnosis and Weight Loss. The weight loss industry has always been an interesting space. For the most part, it is not a pure science, and people are still unsure of how effective many approaches are. Research shows that the average dieter will experiment with over 25 different diets in their life. The fact that the dieting industry is worth so much money does not help; their motivation is a little ‘skewed’. The advertising, marketing and promotional budget is incredible, so we are talking $250 Billion, not Millions! Another issue is the sheer number of new trends and approaches being launched literally on a daily basis.

Being overweight is more often a psychological issue, seldom is it a physical one. Ask an overweight person, do you eat when you are Tired, Sad, Lonely, Depressed, Bored, or maybe to please someone else? No amount of surgery or calorie-restriction diets will fix that, at least not permanently. Using hypnosis for weight loss is a psychological approach that helps you to increase your awareness of your body and its needs. During hypnosis, people tend to be more open to suggestions, which makes hypnosis the perfect tool to help achieve the desired result of Permanent Weight Loss. Hypnotherapy and weight loss work really well together!

We Were the Pioneers

In 2009, a two-page article appeared in the Daily Mail Newspaper unveiling the weight loss treatment that we had developed. We named the treatment the Gastric Mind Band; at the time, the surgical gastric band was making headlines just about everywhere. In the years that followed, we have appeared on TV programmes on both sides of the Atlantic, including a TV special on Good Morning America, then we were invited to sit on the sofa to be interviewed by Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield on the This Morning TV Show.

Our treatment then and now is unique. The approach is wrapped around an upgraded version of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, TCBT; it was developed in-house and has been the subject of many trials and numerous University Presentations. However, whilst that confirms that the treatment we provide is exclusive, it is not the only reason it is so successful. Around the same time, we simultaneously developed a system, an approach, where we were able to underpin a group of scientifically proven therapies with each other. To our knowledge, this had never been done before.

The underpinning strategy created a seamless ‘safety net’ whereby each therapy was very simply enhanced by the other. So NLP, TCBT, Clinical Hypnotherapy and a group of Mindfulness techniques are underpinned by each other, very simple, but very powerful. In 2009, we were the first people in the world to offer the Gastric Mind Band. The treatment delivered all of the benefits of the Surgical Gastric Band without the risks, complications or costs of surgery. And it works. Marie Claire was just one of an incredible 100-plus publications that featured our work globally.

Hypnosis has been used for many years to treat a variety of ailments and conditions, such as addiction, anxiety, and depression. It has also been used to finally motivate people to take ‘lifetime’ control of their weight. There are three ways that hypnotherapy can help you. It can boost your motivation and support your weight loss goals. It will involve you in an effort-based approach instead of dieting alone. And you can effortlessly integrate hypnotherapy with other dieting approaches. You can use hypnotherapy for fast weight loss. We also have a blog post about how to achieve fast, permanent weight loss.

Weight Loss Hypnosis is certainly not new and is more than just a trend. It’s possibly the future, maybe the ‘Magic Bullet’ of weight loss. Studies show that hypnosis helps people lose weight faster than dieting or exercising alone. It also provides vital tools to enable them to maintain their weight loss permanently. As an example, we use hypnosis to ensure that clients no longer hear the word Want; instead, without knowing it, they hear the word Need. Imagine the waiter says, “Do you want fries with that?” but you hear “Do you need Fries with that?” At a cognitive level, we handle those words differently, and we can change the way you think…

As the pioneers of Psychological Weight Loss interventions using Hypnosis/Hypnotherapy, we have accumulated over 15,000 1:1 clinical treatment hours working exclusively with overweight individuals. We are the authors of the two bestselling books on the subject, both published by the most prominent Mind and Body publisher in the world, Hay House, in New York. We understand the issues and problems that dieters face on a daily basis.

With the current state of the weight loss industry, there is no better way to lose weight than through hypnotherapy – hypnosis combination. The treatment has recently been described as a Hybrid approach with an incredible pedigree. The tools of the past just don’t provide the permanent solution people deserve. With the My Weigh Less programme, it is now possible to almost effortlessly leave old habits and trends behind you. You can complete a programme that will change your life for the better without leaving home! We hope you will allow us to empower, inspire and guide you along your weight loss journey.

In Conclusion

Contrary to the belief that weight gain is purely a physical issue, it is often a psychological one. People frequently eat due to a number of emotions. Surgery or calorie-restrictive diets can never address these emotional triggers permanently. Martin and Marions’ proven and now award-winning programme acknowledges this psychological aspect and cleverly leverages hypnosis as a tool to increase body awareness and support permanent weight loss.

Pioneers in the field, in 2009, they were responsible for the global introduction of the Gastric Mind Band approach as an alternative to the surgical gastric band. Their treatment combined the benefits of the surgical approach without its associated risks, complications, or costs, and it has proved to be highly effective.

Hypnosis for weight loss is not just another trend; it’s a well-established practice backed by considerable research. Studies have shown that hypnosis can lead to faster weight loss compared to dieting or exercising alone. Moreover, it equips individuals with vital tools for maintaining their weight loss permanently. For example, using hypnosis, we can help clients shift their cognitive associations, such as transforming “want” into “need,” leading to healthier choices without effort.

Hypnotherapy has been successfully used to treat various ailments, conditions, and motivational challenges, including weight loss. It offers a triple benefit by boosting motivation, supporting weight loss goals, and allowing seamless integration with other dieting approaches.

The future of weight loss lies in approaches like My Weigh Less, which leverage hypnotherapy to inspire long-lasting change and deliver effective results. By offering a unique combination of psychological therapies, including an upgraded version of Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Clinical Hypnotherapy, and Mindfulness techniques, it addresses the root psychological causes of weight gain and provides a promising path toward permanent weight loss.

Our psychology-focused weight loss programme provides a ‘Psychological Reset’ for those wishing to lose weight. The programme incorporates an updated version of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, TCBT, which is the subject of our bestselling book, published globally by Hay House. Professor Windy Dryden of Goldsmiths University in London endorsed the book, and Professor Philip Zimbardo of Stanford University in the USA wrote the foreword. We also incorporate the latest developments around Neuroplasticity and Neuro-Linguistic Programming along with many other disciplines. One component of our psychology-focused weight loss programme provides a ‘Psychological Reset’. At this statement, ‘Psychological Reset,’ we have observed many people raising their eyebrows; see below.

Let me give you a couple of examples: the programme will allow you to make a number of simple cognitive changes in your thought processes…small changes that deliver ‘massive results’. For example, think for a moment how different your relationship with food and weight loss would be if we re-programmed your subconscious mind to effortlessly replace the word “want” with the word “need”? The result, imagine you are out having dinner with friends, and after ordering a burger, instead of hearing the waiter asking: “Do you ‘want’ fries with that?” without thinking, you hear and automatically process the question as: “Do you ‘need’ fries with that?” Things would be very different, right? You see, at a cognitive level, we process those words differently. Later, maybe the waiter says, do you ‘want’ another glass of wine? You, of course, hear and cognitively process the word stream as do you ‘need’ another glass of wine. You can watch an animated video explaining ‘Want and Need’ and how it works at the bottom of this page.

Another ‘fix’ in the programme relates to just why people eat. So, during the programme, you will be asked when was the last time you ate in response to actual, physical hunger. Most people say: “Thinking about it, I haven’t been physically hungry for years”. And so we ask them: “Do you ever eat when you are bored, stressed, tired, lonely, depressed, sad, to reward yourself, when watching TV, or maybe just to please someone else?” Then, we do another reset, and so it goes on…
