Weight loss. Person with tape measure

Ditch the Diet Mindset...it’s all about denial, it leaves you feeling fed up!

Its not about faddy diets or supplements and shakes its about helping you to change your eating habits for good.

With the power of Hypnosis you can take control over your food choices, portion sizes and end sugar addictions.

STOP making excuses and take back control!

The Weight Loss Mindset Method

Change your mindset and learn to think slim...make the right choices, become more positive and motivated.

The weight loss mindset method is so much more than just weight loss hypnosis, this programme is designed to give you a much deeper understanding of your thoughts towards food, your behaviour, your emotions, why you make the food choices that you make, how these choices then effect your body and your mind.

In this programme I will also explain how the mind learns and how hypnosis enhances this learning capability.

Through the gut - brain axis, the food we eat has an impact upon both the physical and mental body, this impact effects hormones, how your body responds to food and how this in turn then impacts upon your mood and your mental well-being.

Throughout this individually designed programme of 6 sessions, I will look at the many different aspects that are required for successful weight loss.

This may range from emotional eating, sugar addiction, low self esteem, lack of motivation, self sabotaging behaviours...to name but a few.

With the use of Hypnosis, NLP & Coaching I then help you to retrain your brain, to change the habits, behaviours and choices that have lead to weight gain.

This programme is aimed at turning all your thoughts about diets completely on there head, everything about dieting revolves around denial. The very word ‘DIET’ sends your brain into a spin and makes you go and ‘stock up’ so you don’t starve!

The weight loss mindset programme is about putting you in control, it’s about giving you the confidence, the motivation and the positivity for change.

It teaches you how your mind ‘thinks’ so that you can reach your weight loss goal!

it’s NOT about willpower

It’s not a Diet

There’s not a start and stop date like a diet, it’s relearning to make different choices, to have different thoughts and beliefs.

Does this method work ? YES

Just take a read through what some of my clients have to say.

You will learn how and why weight loss starts with a change in your mindset!

Helping you to understand why you can't get rid of the weight, to challenge the beliefs that are holding you back and to dump the excuses that you have been hanging onto.

Successful weight loss needs to be do-able, so its looking for a steady amount each week, its about getting healthy.

It’s finding a new "CAN DO" attitude, raising your self esteem and self belief.

Virtual Gastric Band Hypnotherapy

How does it work

It is basically a method used to retraining the brain to be satisfied with smaller food portions, the brain is convinced that the stomach is full after a certain level of intake and that no more food is required. The client will think that a band has been placed around their stomach and that they can no longer eat as much as usual.

It is NOT a diet, as the virtual gastric band allows you to eat whatever you want, but to feel satisfied with smaller quantities. This way you can still enjoy meals and not feel deprived.

With hypnotherapy your relationship with food is also treated, and what triggers over eating. This is an area that is neglected through normal surgery and diets, which leads people to fail.

As part of the full weight management process, you will be taught techniques to cope with stress and the benefits of mindful eating.

How Weight Gain & Stress are connected

Stress can contribute in several ways to weight gain, one way is through hormones. When we are under stress our fight or flight response is triggered, this leads to hormones being released. One of these hormones is Cortisol.
So whether your stress is due to work problems, hectic lifestyle or a perceived real danger, our body responds in the same way.

Too much cortisol can slow the metabolism, causing weight gain and making dieting difficult.

Prolonged stress can also alter your blood sugar levels, causing mood swings & fatigue. This can then lead to greater health problems.

Excessive stress can even effect where fat is stored. High stress levels have been linked to an increase in abdominal fat storage, which again is associated with greater health risks.


People who are stressed generally crave more fatty, sugary and salty foods - sweets and processed foods. These foods are typically less healthy and contribute to weight gain.

To busy and stressed to exercise is another major factor, more and more people are leading a sedentary lifestyle - sat at a desk, stuck in traffic and then ending the day on the sofa in front of the TV.
Exercise is a great way of reducing the amount of cortisol in your body and at the same time burns calories.

People are hypnotized every day, the power of the mind can change your life and change your eating habits.

Just some of the things my clients have said to me:

Virtual Gastric Band has been great, I've lost a stone so far in 3 weeks.

from day one, I have been eating slower and felt full on smaller portions.

I have felt no guilt about leaving food on my plate, I felt full and I was happy to leave it.

I have no desire to eat chocolate.

I have been able to have one biscuit without then eating the whole packet.

Weight loss. quit smoking

Smoking Cessation

Stopping Smoking really doesn't have to be difficult. In fact it can be as simple as a one session treatment.

If you are looking to stop smoking then I have several practices in Nottinghamshire. You can choose from West Bridgford, Newark or Southwell. The smoking cessation programme is designed to help you quit quickly and easily.

Most smokers struggle with making the actual decision to stop, they will have a whole host of reasons as to why its not the right time to stop, so they will say things like after my holiday I'm going to stop, after Christmas, after my birthday...etc. However even after all these reasons to postpone, they will keep delaying. One of the reasons for this is FEAR.
This may sound strange, but its the fear of not being able to stop, or cope, or even the fear of missing out on a smoking break at work, the list of fears is many!

The physical addiction of nicotine is actually very quick to overcome, its the psychological aspect of the habit which is much harder to break. This is why most smokers struggle unless they have got their mind in exactly the right place and no longer fear giving up. This is where hypnotherapy tackles the habit.

If you have a genuine desire to Stop, then hypnotherapy can provide you with the mental aspect of quitting.

If you are a smoker and you are committed to kicking the habit, then with one 2hour 30min session you can leave with the conviction that you are a non smoker.

There are a wealth of benefits from stopping.

How to relieve stress with Hypnotherapy

We all think we know what stress is, because we have all experienced it. Yet Stress is something that covers a wide scope. Experiences range from mild irritation to Chronic stress, which can result in mental and physical problems. With day to day pressures of modern life stress is becoming a significant problem for more and more people.

What is Stress

When we experience stress our body reacts by triggering the release of powerful hormones, this raises our blood pressure and increases the heart rate. Your body is wired to react to stress in ways that are meant to protect you against a perceived threat, stress can be experienced when we think the demand being placed on us exceeds our ability to cope. This is the normal flight or fight response, however to experience prolonged fight or flight creates feelings of anxiety. Triggers are often rooted in a previous experience or situation where you felt fear or anxiety.

Small amounts of stress may be desired or even beneficial, as it can play a part in motivation or performance. Excessive amounts however can lead to many problems that can be harmful to your health.

Long term activation of the stress system and stress hormones can disrupt almost all your bodies processes. This puts you at increased risk of numerous health problems, including:

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Digestive Problems

  • Heart Disease

  • Sleep Problems

  • Weight Gain

  • Memory/Concentration Impairment

    That's why its important to learn healthy ways to cope with the stressors in your life.

  • Stressful events are a fact of life and you may not be able to change your current situation, but you can take steps to manage the impact these events have on you.

    You can learn to identify what stresses you and how to take care of yourself physically and emotionally when faced with stressful situations.

    Hypnotherapy can help to identify the root of the stress or anxiety, whether its a situation, physical issue or a past experience and allow you to break free from negative thought patterns and react more positively and confidently to situations that may have previously made you anxious.
