The loss gain weight Cycle

Fed up with the loss/gain weight cycle?

Tried most diets?

Some people find that it is relatively easy to reduce their weight when they are on a strict diet, but that it won't stay off, relapsing into old habits and gaining even more weight than before.

This is due to the fact that when you start a strict diet regime, and dramatically reduce your calorie intake, your body thinks it is going towards starvation mode and hence slows down your metabolic rate and makes it more prone to storing fat. With a reduced metabolic rate, when you start eating normally again, you will gain even more weight than before. The temptation is to then start another strict diet regime and so the cycle continues.

As a person's weight constantly goes up and down, often called yo-yo dieting, it can leave a person feeling a failure and with low self-esteem, hence comfort eating becomes more likely. Sounds familiar?

What will hypnotherapy do for you?

If you are committed to reducing your weight, then hypnotherapeutic suggestions can enable you to achieve your goals.

Simple suggestions, changing your perceptions about food and eating, will be made, whilst you are in a relaxed state. In this way, unhealthy eating habits such as eating too fast, eating unhealthy food for stress relief, binge eating (tailor made to your particular issues) can all be addressed.

Hypnotherapy also significantly boosts your will power, motivation and energy to succeed with your weight management programme.

Unhealthy Relationship With Food

Do you have an unhealthy relationship with food?

Could your weight gain be due to an unhealthy relationship with food?

For many people, food is used for more than just nourishment. It can often be used as a substitute for things that people are missing in their lives.

The majority of people who have issues with being over weight, find that their eating patterns are linked to their emotional states. People often eat when they are stressed, anxious, lonely, bored, angry, upset or fed up, not because they are hungry.

Quite quickly a habit is formed where food appears to sooth any emotional turbulence a person is experiencing. Often people are not aware of this connection; hence it can be a difficult habit to break without assistance.

What will hypnotherapy do for you?

Hypnotherapy can help you break the links between eating patterns and your emotional states.

Techniques will be taught that will enable you to deal with every day stressors in a more constructive manner, rather than turning to food as a solution.

herapeutic suggestions will further reinforce a desire to eat healthier foods and to have a more active life style.

It can quickly escalate into a vicious cycle:- being over weight can lead to a variety of health problems, which in turn can often make it difficult to find the motivation to exercise or eat healthily, which in turn leads to even more weight gain… and so the cycle continues.

About Me

Sandra Shephard
B.Ed (Hons), EYP, D32/33, Dip.Hyp

Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy, Diploma in Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Qualified Teacher, Assessor and Trainer.

" Sandra is an enthusiastic and highly motivated individual who is eager to help every one become the very best version of themselves. "

With over 25 years experience of teaching, training and coaching I have supported countless adults, teenagers and children through many stages and changes within their lives.

I initially qualified as a teacher, gaining promotion within a short period of time to be part of the senior management team within a large primary school. Educating, supporting and nurturing a wide range of children and families from a variety of different backgrounds was a privilege to undertake.

This managerial role, led on to setting up my own Company, where I undertook further training to become an Early Years Professional as well as qualifying as a NVQ assessor and trainer.

Through the many years of owning my own company, I have been able to coach and guide numerous staff, families and children to overcome difficulties in their lives and achieve real and lasting change.

As a result of my motivation to help others be the very best they can be, I felt inspired to become a qualified clinical hypnotherapy practitioner and a practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP).

During my one to one hypnotherapy sessions, I use a number of techniques to achieve great results for clients. Weight management and health are of particular interest to me, as a number of my friends and family have developed health problems due to weight related issues.

If you are ready to make a difference in your own life, feel free to get in touch for an initial consultation.
