Do you feel unhealthy and overweight? Do you struggle with eating the right foods? Or maybe you already eat the right foods, but you eat too much of them? Do you wish there was a way to alleviate or completely eliminate your reliance on food as a source of comfort and stress relief?

One of the most common questions we get asked is, “Can hypnosis help me lose weight?

Our answer is, “You bet! And, unlike dieting, research indicates more lasting results.” 1,2 *

Our clients typically report a significant decrease in the behaviors that led to weight gain in the past (e.g. emotional eating, boredom eating, cleaning their plates, etc.) after only one session.*  We use a powerful, interactive and fun process of hypnosis whereby the therapist guides the client to the appropriate level (depth) of hypnosis for the presenting problem through a series of suggestions. Once at the appropriate level of hypnosis, the client’s subconscious mind is optimally open and receptive to the combination of positive suggestions co-created by the client and the therapist during the intake portion of the session. Because hypnotherapy occurs on the level of the subconscious mind, change can be more dramatic, noticeable and permanent then when the conscious mind is engaged.

Many of our clients have reported completely reversing their lifelong reliance on food for comfort after only four or five sessions.* 

Hypnosis is gaining more and more recognition nationwide as an established option for weight management. One University of Connecticut study reported that subjects who used hypnosis lost more weight than 90 percent of the other participants. Better yet, by two years later they had maintained the weight loss.1 Another study found that hypnosis more than doubled average weight loss among subjects.
