Sound interesting? Get in touch to find out more? Starts soon.
Many people find it difficult to lose weight and try lots of different diets. Some of us seem to make really good progress in the short term but find it difficult to maintain this over the long term. Some of us experience cycles of determination, motivation and progress followed by disappointment and frustration as we put all the weight back on. Some of us know what is good for us and have great intentions but feel a strong compulsion to eat the wrong things and eat in the wrong way. Does this sound familiar to you?
Why might this be? What might be missing from how we approach this?
The people we are talking about is you, me and most of us. We are intelligent, strong people in many areas of our lives. We hold a lot together. We have the determination and the will to make changes but we keep falling down with our diet. We are not weak people. So why is this part of our life so difficult?
I have developed a new programme based on my hypnotherapy training and my interest in this really important topic. I have followed the approach myself and already lost a stone in weight. I am really enjoying my new choices, so much so that I really don't want to go back.
I believe my new 7 week group programme offers something genuine and something different. It is not another diet or a quick fix. It doesn't tell you the types of food that you are and are not allowed. It doesn't ask you to go hungry and feel miserable. It is not a battle of wills.
The programme is different because it helps you, in a real way:
Most importantly, the programme sets you up to make long term, preferable lifestyle changes that make you feel better and more alive. We are talking about 1 or 2 pounds of weight loss per week over the long term coupled with other positive changes.
The programme believes in you and treats you with a huge amount of respect for who you are, what you already know and your capabilities.
The programme is fun and enjoyable and like nothing you have experienced before.
The Behypnotherapy Weight Loss Group programme uses techniques from solution-focused hypnotherapy. We'll pay a lot of attention to what you want to achieve (not what you don't). We'll focus on what works for you, what you discover each week and the small tangible realistic steps you will make each week toward the life you want.
When it comes to tracking your progress, there will be no weighing and shaming. Instead you will privately monitor what we refer to as CORP outcomes (https://www.corp-outcomes.com):
Specifically to this programme you will also choose a specific weight related measure of your choosing. This could be your weight, your Body Mass Index or your waist circumference for example.
The programme will give you the knowledge, the time and the support to establish a new relationship with food from a mind and body perspective. It is about living and enjoying food and achieving a healthier weight.
The programme consists of 7 sessions, each of about 1 hour 15 minutes long. Each week we take an important theme and encourage you make one change, however small. The 7 themes are as follows:
Week 1 - Becoming conscious about food - helping you get your mind on our side
Week 2 - Exploring your beliefs and identity when it comes to food
Week 3 - What already does you good - remembering all the things that you know really help
Week 4 - Your healthy weight environment - helpful triggers, habits and rituals
Week 5 - Mealtimes - what really works for you - learning how to enjoy natural and good hungry feelings and a taste bud sensation
Week 6 - Food choices - changing the types of food that make you feel better
Week 7 - What you've learnt, what really worked for you. Your plan for the longer term.
By the end of the 7 weeks you will have the knowledge, tools and confidence to make long term change that makes you feel better. To help people keep on track, there are two additional sessions planned at 3 months and 6 months. These are an opportunity to celebrate success, refresh learning and give you a boost to continue. (These follow up sessions are charged additionally at £10 per person).
The sessions use techniques from solution-focused hypnotherapy and will typically follow this format:
The whole programme costs £95. This includes attendance at all the sessions, a programme guide book, online support and a copy of a unique self hypnosis weight loss audio.
The additional 3 month and 6 month follow up sessions are charged separately at £10 per person.
