Spring will make you reflect on your weight nameSeptember 5th, 2018
Its spring and this time of year will make you reflect on your weight as you shed your winter woollies and try to dress for warmer weather.
Are you one of the many who added a few extra kilos of insulation during winter? So what do you do now?
Diets do not work… they make your problem worse because your body believes that you are starving and makes sure it stores more fat after the diet finishes in case there is another famine. Repeated diets simply increase your weight over time as your body fights to protect you from ongoing famine.
Our metabolism evolved to suit cave people who stored fat in their bodies when they were threatened by either cold or famine. We are not going to change our basic metabolism and physiology but we can change our mindset and our habits.
Studies show that Hypnosis is 40% more successful in achieving long-term weight loss than any other method.
The thing is that hypnosis allows you to change your unconscious beliefs and your habits about food and eating. This results in steady weight loss and maintenance of a healthy weight over a long time.

Shortcuts do not work. Diets put on more weight over time. We all know about yo-yo dieting. It is fabulous for selling magazines as people search for the latest version.
Stomach surgery comes with huge problems and often doesn’t work. I have had several clients who have done this then a few years later come to me for help.

It is possible to eat a tub of ice cream slowly, or a liquidised Big Mac. It is very difficult to swallow healthy food like meat so people often find their protein content decreases.
DON”T do this!
Just book in to my 5-session program because this gives you a good long-term result.
This is a general newsletter covering varied aspects of the relationship between your mind and your body.
Identifying and clearing clutterI moved two months ago and it has been a very interesting experience. Downsizing to a smaller more manageable house meant that two thirds of my belongings had to go and this was a slow process and surprisingly difficult.
It’s about identifying clutter and this can be complicated because clutter is not just physical stuff. Its also old ideas, toxic relationships and bad habits.
Some clutter becomes fairly obvious and can be sorted but then there is the rest…
Some things hark back to m...
There is a pattern of behaviour at ChristmasI love Christmas and enjoy looking for thoughtful gifts for my special people at this time of the year but beware of the pattern of behaviour at Christmas. Gifts don’t have to be expensive, just thoughtful.
However the pattern I see in many people is forgetting about the fact that THEY matter, running out of time and money and even cancelling their own care - they don’t want to “waste” time and money on themselves.
If you are falling into this trap please stop and remember that YO...
How much do you value yourself?Sometimes people don’t see the value in getting help for themselves and instead feel outraged by needing to pay. So how much do you value yourself?
What are your unconscious beliefs and how important is caring for yourself?
One problem is that people have become conditioned to having much of our medical treatment free or very heavily subsidised.
