Anxiety, IBS and Weight Management
Anxiety can also show through IBS or Irritable Bowel Syndrome. This is where the lining of the bowel can be very sensitive, at times of anxiety. If this condition is anxiety based and not medically treatable then Hypnotherapy is a non-invasive, drug-free choice. If this is your situation then please take time to contact me for an initial consultation and more information.

With Weight Management whether loss or gain is needed, hypnotherapy is a powerful tool and once self-hypnosis is learned, then anxiety about weight can gradually be put into the past. You, the public, frequently enquire about weight-loss with many saying :'I've tried everything else, can you help?' Yes I can, if you are committed to changing your thinking about food, however other issues may need prior attention. This can be discovered through a consultation first. Hypnotherapy help for changing attitudes to food is assisted by joint programming between us and the hypnotic process, helping towards necessary goals to a healthier body. Nutrition and the sources/quality of your food play an important role too. Also regular exercise in the fresh air to burn off the calories and tone muscles. Imagery is included. What is your current image of yourself, as self motivation is powerful?
HEALTHY MIND - HEALTHY BODY.
Your belief of achievement is fundamental here as well as good planning, self-monitoring etc. Emphasis however, is on what you can create for yourself, as the weight anxieties fade away.
2013 update - for enquirers of Hypno-band therapy:
The Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy denounces gastric band hypnotherapy. Paul Howard who strted using it as part of therapy says :“I can understand the lure from a client’s point of view. It is an ideal scenario, no surgery, a fraction of the cost and no after-surgery complications or pain. But the fact of the matter is that for most people with weight control issues, it has little or no practical application.” He adds," When the idea for gastric band hypnotherapy was developed at the Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy in 2005, it was designed to be used as just part of our weight control programme. For the vast majority of weight loss clients, it is totally inappropriate and, therefore, unethical to be using it as a technique."
If you have not considered hypnotherapy for IBS or weight management then I would be delighted to help.
2 reasons you may have little success with weight management.
1 )The quality of your food
2 ) The additives in processed foods where Bromine - an anti bacterial agent (vegetable oil BVO)- can so thicken liquids that it is almost impossible to shift body fat that has been thickened by it.
