Eating Disorders

If you have been diagnosed as suffering from an eating disorder, such as anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa, then these will require us to provide you with specific hypnotherapeutic interventions aligned to current measures being taken by you and co-ordinated with clinician(s) treating you. If you are under psychiatric care, a referral letter from your psychiatrist is required. For these conditions we would have you take the MDTL Model™ Therapy Program originally developed for Anxiety Disorders, yet highly effective for eating disorders because of the overlap between these conditions, such as specific anxieties and fears around the eating disorder, which are to be alleviated.

Weight issue (not a diagnosed eating disorder)

Whether it is excessive weight or an inability to gain weight, whether the cause(s) are known or not, hypnotherapy can most definitely help. Where a diagnosis has not been forthcoming, hypnoanalysis can be used to identify the cause(s) though this may not be necessary to resolve the issue.

The unconscious, (which resides within every cell of your body), has its own reasons for holding onto weight or refusing to put on weight. The reasons are brought to the surface through hypnotherapy and recognised as sabotaging ones that may have served a purpose in the past, such as comforting you in a past trauma (which became hidden in your unconscious). As these sabotaging beliefs (both conscious and unconscious), are recognised in and out of hypnosis and released, new and more empowering beliefs are imprinted into the your unconscious so that you leave knowing that your weight issue has been permanently left behind in the past. All sabotaging and unhelpful thoughts, feelings, emotions and behaviours, which have become habitual, are addressed and replaced with beneficial life-affirming beliefs.

With our advanced weight loss program, you will begin to notice a very positive shift in your attitude towards food from your first session (as well as exercise, if that is an aspect that we decide needs incorporating into your program). You will wonder why you had not discovered Hypnosis & Health sooner – as you’ll see from the success stories below. Our advanced weight loss program is customised to your specific needs. These are some of the areas that will be customised as required, in your hypnotherapy program :

  • Constant or frequent thoughts of eating
  • Optimising awareness to the triggers around eating i.e. Emotional eating – take our emotional eating quiz (EEQ) to clarify those feelings and emotions which are triggers for eating or snacking when you are not hungry. This information will be used in your program/sessions when you decide to turn your life around with a new slimmer, fitter, healthier version of you. Addictions, cravings or urges for specific types of foods i.e. sugar addiction, cheese etc
  • Overeating or snacking in certain situations, with certain people at certain times of the day i.e. evening when home alone, stressful situations, when no one is looking, picking at food whilst preparing it etc.
  • Inability to do ‘normal’ exercise due to a medical condition
  • Lack of joy, energy and/or motivation to exercise
  • Inability to stick to an eating or/and exercise plan
  • Sluggish metabolism (not necessarily as the result of a diagnosed medical condition)
  • Anxiety over how others see your body shape or weight incl. body image and/or a lack of confidence
  • Awareness of the time/ period in your life when you started putting on weight
  • Specific (and realistic) S.M.A.R.T. goals you wish to achieve i.e. to be …. (waist size or body weight or image of self in a particular outfit etc.) By… (date - perhaps of a special occasion)
  • An inabilty from past experience to maintain a lower weight i.e. weight control
  • Other unhealthy eating, drinking (sugary drinks including alcohol) and shopping habits

The above is NOT a comprehensive list yet gives you an appreciation of some of the elements of our comprehensive advanced weight loss program – which is why it is a 5-session intensive lifestyle course* which utilises the best hypnotherapeutic tools to get the problem fixed once and for all. Finally you can set free that slimmer, energised future version of you that is 100% motivated to stay that way.

Sometimes clients’ confidence of shifting excess body weight and maintaining their weight loss, after one or two sessions, is such that they think that they may not need the remaining sessions. However, I assure you from our experience, 5 sessions are essential to ensuring continued outstanding results, and a life-long freedom from being overweight. We do not want you to ever yo-yo on diets again, if that has been your pattern! We do not want you to just be a larger person who is trying their best not to eat too much food.  We do not want you to turning to food ever again to stuff down a feeling or use food to comfort you. We want to assist you do much more than that. We will assist you become 100% committed to this new version of you, no matter what happens in your outer world, your inner world of thoughts, feelings and emotions and consequent behaviours, will ensure the health and vitality of your body, the slim and trim version of you. The five sessions are all different and again customised to your needs at that time.

Our Advanced Weight Loss program will result in you feeling ultra-confident that you:
  • Will experience a ‘lightness’ of being each day with your new way of thinking, feeling and behaving

Weight Gain

Whilst wishing to ‘loose weight’ is more common amongst clients that come to our practice, an inability to ‘gain weight’ can often be successfully treated with hypnotherapy. Even when the inability to gain weight is associated with a medical diagnosis such as cancer or diabetes, hypnotherapy has been scientifically proven to be effective for weight gain. Depending on the diagnosis, this may involve for example, using hypnotherapy to stimulate and maintain a healthy appetite or strenghthen the immune system or to restore harmony and so healthy functioning of specific bodily tissues/ organs.

Success Stories

Shifting the way you think about food, exercise and your body – Driven to drop the weight and keep it off

‘If you are reading this, you are looking for help. Like you, I wanted help. After many years of abusing food my problem was very ingrained. I wanted to be slimmer, healthier and fitter. I wanted to have a healthier view of food and my body. I know what a person needs to do to be slim, healthy and fit. But to do it, enjoy and keep doing it ‘ well, that is very hard for many people. And, I happen to be one of those people. I wanted to be able to naturally, instinctively and willingly think healthier. If I could change the way I thought about food, exercise and my body, I knew I could lick this for life. But, I needed help. Thank goodness, like you, I read about Sonia.

Sonia relaxed my conscious mind to a tranquil yet awareness state and spoke to my subconscious. During this state, I was aware of my surroundings but felt very serene. It was an amazing experience. But, did it help. Unbelievably so! Results were instant. I’m not lying!

Now I eat only to fuel, nourish and replenish my body. I never skip meals. I exercise 6 days a week for at least forty minutes ‘ I desire to do it!! I wake up at 6.30am each morning (I asked for this and incredibly ‘ no, instinctively this happens). I know what I am going to eat the next day and I am prepared. I DO NOT crave chocolate, chips, pizza or other fatty, starchy food. I eat anything healthy like vegetables, salads, fruit, fish and meat, all cooked in a healthy manner and ONLY to the amount my body needs ‘ it tells me when it is full. All my decisions about food and exercise come naturally and instinctively ‘ and they are all healthy!

I have only visited Sonia twice. I intend to have the remaining sessions to cement these practices for life. I am very, grateful to Sonia. She is a beautiful, intelligent and caring soul. Professionally, she really knows her stuff. If you want help, call Sonia. Give it a go; you have nothing to lose but a lot to gain’.

Freedom from emotional binge eating and cravings – totally in control when making food choices

“I found the hypnosis very effective for my problem – emotional eating. Also I would recommend the RESET- RENEW program – I didn’t go hungry and I didn’t crave ANYTHING. I now feel totally in control when making food choices – no guilt / not difficult anymore. I no longer BINGE eat, and these results are all with my first session. Thank-you”.

Getting your life back -The battle of needing a daily choc fix WON – Freedom from chocolate/ sugar addiction

After the first session:
“I just thought I’d give you a quick email to tell you that today I baked a pineapple cake to take to a meeting tomorrow and I do not have any interest in eating it!!! I’ll let you know how I go”

A few weeks later (after 3 sessions):
“Thought I’d write some words about my experience with you and hypnotherapy:
When I came to Sonia, I had been battling a chocolate addiction for the last 10 or so years. I have always been a closet chocoholic, hiding chocolate under my bed, in my wardrobe, making excuses to go eat it whenever I
could. I could easily eat two family sized blocks a day. Chocolate and sweet foods were taking over my life. I felt like I would die if I did not get my chocolate fix every day. Try as I may, the sweet food would win every time. Not only did this make me feel unhappy, but it also took its toll on my healthy body.

Sonia has helped me to kick my addiction to sweet foods. 3 days after my first session with Sonia, I no longer craved chocolate. Now after 3 sessions, I no longer feel the need to eat cakes, biscuits, chocolate etc… and I no longer bite my nails (from anxiety). I feel positive and motivated to getting back to my healthy self, and food no longer dictates my life. I am happy to exercise and look forward to this as opposed to feeling as if it is a chore.

After Program completion (~12 weeks from first session):
I’m sure, like me, some of you will have your doubts about the results hypnotherapy can yield, and yet, within 3 months I have had a complete 180 turnaround. I do not eat chocolate anymore, I do not eat biscuits or cake, and I have a wonderful lifestyle filled with healthy foods and exercise. I cannot shout loud enough about the positive changes hypnotherapy has brought about in me. Please have an open mind and give Sonia a try. She is a wonderful person and will get to the bottom of any problem. Thank you Sonia!

Freedom from obsessing over food – Enjoying exercise – Goodbye to cravings for sweet & unhealthy Foods

“Sonia gave me the inner strength, the motivation to do what I’ve always wanted to do and to stick with it. By focusing on a healthy lifestyle she showed me that food is not there to feed my emotions but as medicine for
my body. I now see food for it’s nutritional value and I am feeding my body in the way nature intended. The Program which for me included a 5 day RESET nutrition pack was easy and full of nutritional value, the food
tasted great and I lost 2 kg on the 5 day Program and then a further 1.5 kg after my first hypnosis session with no cravings for sweet or unhealthy things. So far I’ve lost 7.6kgs, I now have 6kgs to go to get to my goal weight of 65kgs! I’m still losing 0.6-1kg a week. Still exercising everyday and enjoying it (whereas I did not before the sessions) & still haven’t touched any sugar, I haven’t been craving sugar AT ALL and no longer obsess or think about food the way I used to. I was even able to stay focussed over Christmas and the New Year. ! I can definitely see myself continuing with this and keeping the weight off when I reach my goal. Thank-you Sonia”.

“Hi Sonia! Just letting you know I jumped on the scales this morning & I have reached my goal weight of 65kgs……3 weeks before the date I set myself:-) So, I’m 13.6kgs down and feel so absolutely amazing! Thankyou so much, you are an angel!”
