Hypnosis is a tainted state of consciousness, frequently achieved with the help of a hypnotherapist using oral repetition and psychological images. When you’re under hypnosis, your concentration is extremely focused and you’re more responsive to suggestions, including behavior changes that can help you lose weight. After appropriate training, you can try self-hypnosis as well for weight loss. Weight-loss hypnosis is usually combined with cognitive behavioral therapy.
Think of the brain in three dissimilar parts — the awake mind, the self-image or ego mind and our subliminal mind.
“If someone thinks they aren’t good enough, it doesn’t matter how much they’re told otherwise, the mind defaults to the ego mind and the belief that they aren’t good enough,” explains Jennifer Burgess, Clinical Hypnotherapist at Calgary-based Full Circle Hypnosis Ltd. “In hypnosis, we go to the subconscious mind to set up a new belief system.”
