Foundations Counseling in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor offers hypnosis for weight loss to help you understand and acknowledge the subconscious reasons behind difficulty losing weight.
True hypnosis isn’t like what you see in the movies. It’s sometimes referred to as a mind-control technique, but at it’s core hypnosis is a state of deeply focused attention. You can enter this trance-like state on your own if you know how, or with a trained hypnotherapist who helps you relax and focus your mind before making specific suggestions. The suggestions work because your mind is focused and you’re more receptive toward ideas for behavior change.
Hypnosis has seen its share of controversy, but it could be the best weight loss program for you. It can be very effective when it comes to changing long-held habits, like emotional eating, excess eating, inaction caused by fear of failure, and more. Our counselors are familiar with the psychological struggles of weight loss. Together, you can utilize different techniques and methods, including hypnosis, to create a healthy weight loss plan for you.
What you can expect with Hypnosis for Weight Loss
Foundations Counseling offers hypnosis for weight loss in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor.
Your therapist will help you identify any emotional and subconscious elements that contribute to weight control, and will work with you to discover any underlying issues that may be contributing to your struggles with weight loss.
You might discover that you associate food with happy memories, which causes you to eat in search of those fond feelings. Perhaps you positively identify with overweight people in your life. You could be using weight as a means to distance yourself from others. There are many possibilities, and your therapist will help you identify and understand them.
Pairing other therapies with hypnosis is common, and your therapist may utilize a variety of tools and techniques, including:
- Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
- Mindfulness techniques
- Stress counseling
- Anxiety therapy
- Self-esteem counseling
When to Ask for Help
If you’ve tried other methods of weight loss, like diet and exercise, but can’t seem to lose weight no matter what you do, hypnosis could help you get over that plateau. Your therapist will work with you through hypnosis and the other methods mentioned above to unlock the deep-seated reasons behind your weight loss struggles.
However, you should also meet with your primary care physician or specialist healthcare provider to discuss underlying health factors that could be impacting your weight. Once you’ve ruled out other medical issues that could be contributing to your weight loss difficulties, hypnosis can be a great next step.
