Weight Loss 
 
Motivational Hypno-psychotherapy for weight loss
 
By combining Hypnosis and Psychotherapy together we begin by identifying what’s holding you back. There are no quick fixes or gimmicks for long-term weight loss
 
By identifying how you are motivated to lose weight naturally and easily we begin a programme thorough Hypnosis and develop a weight loss plan to work towards your goal - to increase you motivation using strong behavioural techniques.
 
Do you want to lose a lot or a little?
 
After an assessment, which is when you tell me about your goals, your medical history and any previous attempts at weight loss. After this we can build on the things that helped you succeed, and what didn't and identify problems and blockages and then we can put together an individual plan that will work alongside those healthier eating habits, (reinforced through hypnosis). Together we will explore your history of eating, find out what motivates you and what you would like to achieve.
 
The reason why this is important is because some people have other conditions that contribute to their weight gain, but I can work with these as well. Eating healthy is good for your mental health and wellbeing and our working together ensures that your therapy is based on my knowledge of you and your needs. 
 
 
As with anything your commitment is also important and psychotherapy and hypnosis together is a strong combination that gets your unconscious mind and your conscious mind working together.
 
We explore the reason for wanting to lose weight, and identify the motivation you have to increase this. Hypnosis is a very rescuers and I will teach you self-hypnosis for you to continue to use this for powerful results after your therapy with me has ended. 
 
I will help you find that balance in your life increase your ability to do this together. The healthy eating and weight loss therapy programme usually take 6 weeks with a planned follow up every two months (free)
 
Eating Disorders
 
If you have an eating disorder such as bulimia or anorexia this can be helped using CBT-E. I am also trained to use this with you. 
 
Working alongside your GP might be helpful if you have anorexia where you may be at risk
 
I have been trained and worked with people who have an eating disorder using CBT -E 
 
CBT-E is the abbreviation for “enhanced cognitive behavioural therapy”, and it refers to a “transdiagnostic” personalised psychological treatment for eating disorders. It was developed as an outpatient treatment for adults but is an intensive version for day patient and inpatient settings (Dalle Grave, 2012), and a version for younger people. A detailed treatment guide is available (Fairburn, 2008).
 
With people who are not significantly underweight, CBT-E generally involves an initial assessment appointment followed by twenty 50-minute treatment sessions over 20 weeks. 
 
With people who are significantly underweight treatment needs to be longer, often involving about 40 sessions over 40 weeks. This will always be in conjunction with your GP and may involve a referral to other more specialist services
 
CBT-E is a highly individualised treatment. It is designed to fit the person's difficulties like a glove and be modified in light of his or her progress.
 
CBT-E has four stages (see CBT-E map). In Stage One, the focus is on gaining a mutual understanding of the person's eating problem and helping him or her modify and stabilise their pattern of eating. There is also emphasis on personalised education and the addressing of concerns about weight. It is best if these initial sessions are twice weekly.
 
In the brief second stage progress is systematically reviewed and plans are made for the main body of treatment, Stage Three.
 
Stage Three consists of a run of weekly sessions focused on the processes that are maintaining the person's eating problem. Usually this involves addressing concerns about shape and eating; enhancing the ability to deal with day-to-day events and moods; and the addressing of extreme dietary restraint.
 
Towards the end of Stage Three and in Stage Four the emphasis shifts onto the future. There is a focus on dealing with setbacks and maintaining the changes that have been obtained.
 
Generally a review session is held some months after treatment has ended. It provides an opportunity for a review of progress and the addressing of any problems that remain or have emerged.
