None of us set out to have a weight problem, or an eating problem. We all know that being overweight is harmful to our health, but also most people find that diets don't keep weight off permanently. As soon as people resume their normal eating, they put back any weight they have lost.

This is because weight problems and eating problems are usually psychological problems, and they can be overcome by tackling the psychological cause.

Why eating can be a problem?

We all have to eat to survive, but we often eat for reasons other than hunger. When we are young, we are often told things like "if you are good, you can have a sweet" "aren't you good, you've eaten everything on your plate" "don't be upset, have some chocolate and you will feel better".

So we are conditioned to eat even when we aren't hungry, and this becomes ingrained in our subconscious mind - we eat for emotional or habitual reasons, and we can end up becoming overweight.

Our subconscious mind is powerful, stronger than our conscious mind, and once ideas, even wrong ones, are ingrained in it, it can be very difficult to make changes.

How can TLC Dorset help?

With hypnotherapy, supported by counselling and NLP, we can get to the heart of the problem. We can get to that part of your subconscious that believes that eating will give you what you need - emotional support, satisfy a craving, cure boredom or smother uncomfortable emotions.

Working together, we can change your attitude towards eating and help free you from your negative behaviour patterns, and help you feel good about yourself.  

When you feel better about yourself, it is easier to take the steps you need to take control of your life, to make positive changes and eat healthily and sensibly, happily keeping your weight as you want it.

Or, why not try a Virtual Gastric Band?

The Virtual gastric Band is a non-surgical technique which uses the power of hypnosis to retrain you to be satisfied with smaller amounts of food.

The six session programme can change your relationship with food and gives very safe results.

The clinical hypnotherapy convinces the brain that the stomach is full after a certain level of intake, and that there is no need for more food.

No need to diet! – The Virtual Gastric Band allows you to eat what you want, but will encourage you to intake smaller portions. And, because it’s not a diet, you won’t feel deprived, miserable or hungry.

We offer 6x 1 hour sessions of hynotherapy including a                Virtual Gastric Band for only £250!
