Hypnotherapy training – aiding weight management

Do you struggle with diet and find that your weight management often yo-yos?

Well, you could learn to help people with this and many other issues when you train in just 10 months, to become a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is an effective and safe way to help someone help with their weight management by allowing them to gain control over their eating habits.

“It’s not a one-off therapy session”, explains David, the senior lecturer in Edinburgh. “You learn to work with a client over a number of appointments to help them take control over their eating habits, so they can start to make informed decisions on the food types they choose.”

David explains that Solution Focused Hypnotherapy works by helping someone to reduce their stress bucket levels.

“We all have our own stress bucket, and, when the levels fill up, we can find ourselves indulging in bad habits, such as comfort eating, to try to cope.”

Hypnosis is used as part of a therapy session to help drop the levels in the stress bucket through a natural process of Rapid Eye Movement (REM), which occurs when we are in a trance state and is a natural part of the sleep cycle.

When REM happens, we effectively start to see that our stress bucket levels drop, which provides a calmer outlook, so allowing the client to take control over some of those pesky cravings, which would otherwise see them reaching for the biscuit tin.

Every session focuses on positive steps taken since the last meeting and both therapist and client work together on what can be done to further help reduce stress by focusing on positive goals – either short term or long term including their weight management.

The hypnosis part of the session lasts for around 20 minutes and helps the brain to focus on those positive changes for the future, so allowing us to move forwards and notice a real difference in all areas of their life including weight management.

David is the senior lecturer at hypnotherapy training in Edinburgh and is a fully-qualified and insured practitioner with a diploma in hypnotherapy.  He is also the Chief Executive Officer of the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH).

The Hypnotherapy Practitioner’s Diploma (HPD) is widely regarded as the current “gold standard” in the industry.
