When most people hear the word, “hypnotherapy”, images of lying on a couch and falling under a spell seem to come to mind. Then there is an expectation that we are magically “cured”, after a hypnosis session. This can be true, but not for weight loss programs. Relative to effective weight control or weight loss, unfortunately, hypnotists offer no quick fix.
We see and smell food in places like commercials, shopping areas, billboards, restaurant cooking, and the smell of bread or cinnamon being pushed out of shopping area vents. Most of us are fortunate enough to have great access to food, too! Also, modern day life can be sedentary. If you combine a food-centric lifestyle with a host of other issues such as low self-esteem, stress, depression, addiction, etc., one can see that hypnotherapy has a small influence.
Many times the bigger issue related to food and weight management is underlying depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, or stress. In these cases Aura Holistic Counseling has the tools and experience to help via therapy. Then you have an excellent chance to get real weight loss results. Questions?
