Hypnotherapy For Weight Loss

Successfully losing weight and keeping it off is not about dieting. For sustainable weight loss, there must be a connection and alignment between the body and mind.

​Many overweight people have a very good understanding of healthy eating and the benefits of exercise when it comes to weight management. However, despite their best intentions, they find themselves unable to stick to their newly chosen healthy habits and the weight is still there.

Using hypnotherapy for weight loss can not only help tackle unconscious bad habits but it can also help to uncover and address the psychological patterns that prevent you from losing weight and keeping it off.

Using hypnotherapy for weight loss is not a short-term fix, it is about creating new habits for life and helping you to change your relationship with food so you can regain control for the long term, without dieting!

Diets Don't Work

When deciding to lose weight, most people will go on a restrictive diet. Although most will achieve weight loss while on a diet, research shows that 80-90% of people who have lost weight this way will put it back on, and usually more, within 2 years after stopping the diet.

Diets are not only unsustainable but they come with lots of unwanted side effects, such as cravings, feeling hungry, or thinking about food all the time, and will usually make you feel miserable, which in turn can increase a desire to comfort eat.

To successfully lose weight for the long term requires addressing what no diet or exercise regime takes into consideration: the brain connection. This means changing the way you think and behave around food.

How Can Hypnotherapy Help With Weight Loss?

Weight loss hypnosis is not about willpower and meal plans. It’s an approach that makes your weight loss journey easier by helping you to reconnect with your body.

It will give you a foundation for a life-changing new relationship with food that will enable you to achieve long-term freedom from excess weight and to become the person you want to be.

Typically, when used for weight loss, hypnotherapy can help you to:

  • Eat less and be satisfied with smaller amounts
  • Stop unhealthy snacking
  • Let go of cravings
  • Reduce emotional or binge eating
  • Increase motivation to exercise
  • Stop self-sabotage
  • Increase self-confidence
  • Make healthier choices

Working Together

For any program, the first session will start with me getting to know you. We will discuss your goals and find out your current patterns of eating and what you struggle with. I will explain the process and answer any questions you may have.

Each program, including the Virtual Gastric Band, will be tailored to your specific needs. When deemed appropriate, I may combine hypnotherapy techniques with other powerful mind-transforming tools such as NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) or EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique).

Will Weight Loss Hypnotherapy Work for Me?

The best way to make hypnotherapy work for you is to be ready to make positive changes and to be actively engaged in the work we do together. Conscious decisions are a key element of any transformational change. The more you follow the guidelines provided as part of a program, the most benefit you will get from your powerful hypnotherapy treatment.

Why Work With Me?

As a certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, NLP Practitioner, and EFT practitioner, I aim to empower clients and help them reach a healthy and positive relationship with food.

From my experience of working with many clients struggling to lose excess weight, I understand how disheartening or even isolating the weight battle can feel to some. My approach is compassionate and friendly and I run an ethically led practice.

I always offer a free consultation before committing to a therapy treatment. This is the opportunity to ask any questions you may have and make sure that this is right for you. Once you feel happy to go ahead, we will organise the sessions.

Success Stories


This was an amazing program and I really noticed the difference. The day after my first session I straightaway noticed that I no longer felt like snacking between meals which was a first for me!



 If you have tried all other methods of weight loss without lasting success, I would highly recommend working with Christine. I have completely changed my eating habits through this program and it has felt effortless. My relationship with food has completely changed. Thank you Christine



This is so different... Without thinking about it, I am eating less and I feel confident the weight will continue to drop off. It was such an easy experience.



Hypnotherapy is a gentle and well-established therapy that combines elements of psychotherapy with hypnosis techniques to facilitate therapeutic outcomes.  

Unlike cognitive behavioural therapy, which primarily focuses on the conscious mind, the focus of hypnotherapy is to work with the subconscious mind.

Hypnotherapy can be used to address a wide range of issues, including anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, smoking cessation, weight management, improving self-confidence, managing stress, and more.

Hypnosis is a modality that has been proven to work over the centuries. It is simply a state of focused awareness during which your conscious mind, your analytical brain is moved aside to allow your subconscious mind to become highly creative and receptive to new ideas.

It is a state of focused awareness that is induced through the clinical hypnotherapist’s directions.

Hypnosis is a natural state. People get into a hypnotic state daily while engrossed in various activities such as watching a film, reading a book, or even driving. All hypnosis is, in effect, self-hypnosis.

Hypnosis cannot happen without your participation. It is a collaborative process between the hypnotherapist and the individual being hypnotized.

During a hypnotherapy session, you will be guided into a state of trance, by the therapist. The more you are open to the process and the more you follow the therapist’s instructions, the more relaxed you will be and the more receptive you will become to the suggestions given during the session.

Clients who resist hypnosis or hold a limiting belief about hypnosis, may not benefit from hypnotherapy.

No, you will not lose control. In fact, during hypnosis, you remain in control the whole time

Despite the illusion of stage hypnosis, you cannot be hypnotised to do something that you would not be willing to do.

Unlike restrictive diets which promise to make you lose weight quickly, hypnotherapy offers a safe and natural way to lose weight. The aim is to achieve a sensible and progressive weight loss of 1-3lbs per week, however, some people may experience a quicker weight loss at the beginning.

Working with a professional weight loss hypnotherapist is a very supportive approach to weight loss that also provides mental health support.

The hypnotherapist will take time to understand any past and current struggles with your weight control to design a hypnotherapy treatment that suits you. This may include dealing with any anxiety, poor body image, or confidence issues linked to your weight management. It will seek to address the root cause of emotional eating or disrupted eating patterns that have hampered your weight loss efforts until now.


It is a tailored approach to help you lose weight, have a healthier body, and enjoy life more.

Whether you want to save on travel time or experience weight loss hypnosis from the comfort of your own home, online hypnotherapy provides the same results.  Each session takes place via Zoom. All you need is a quiet place where you will not be disturbed and a good and stable internet connection.

Each program contains a set number of sessions as a base. In most cases, it will be enough to create the required changes. However, it is important to remember that losing weight can be a complex process and may require additional sessions. The reason for this could be that people who have a significant amount of weight to lose will benefit from extra support along the way. Additionally, it is not unusual for emotional eating patterns to be linked to past traumatic experiences. When this is the case, more work may be required.

There is absolutely no risk in using hypnotherapy to help you lose weight. Unlike diets, weight loss hypnotherapy is used to help you reconnect with your body by becoming more naturally aware of your needs, hunger, and full signals.

The simple answer is yes. Hypnotherapy can help you with overeating, snacking, or cravings, whether for a chocolate bar or something else.

If overeating is your main issue, you may want to consider the Virtual Gastric Band Program which is specifically designed to help you eat less and be satisfied with smaller amounts of foods.

Clinical studies on weight loss hypnotherapy have shown that hypnotherapy has successfully helped adults and children avoid surgery and improve their behaviours around food.
