Marisa: "I am very good at dieting. Over the past 15-20 years I’ve been on slimming world, the fasting diet, weight watchers, Carol Vorderman’s 28 day detox. They’ve all worked while I’ve been doing them but my weight always creeps back up as I return to poor eating habits. I approached Clare to see if she could help me break my classic yo-yo dieting cycle with hypnotherapy. Part of me secretly hoped I’d come away from the experience disliking chocolate and crisps and with a new found penchant for Brussel sprouts. Of course I didn’t! The genuine benefit of the hypnotherapy sessions was in helping me to identify what my issues with food are – in my case it was almost compulsive, mindless snacking between meals when I knew I wasn’t hungry. Once we’d taken that first step in identifying what I wanted to change, we then worked on identifying what was triggering my need to snack and how to try and break the habit. Hypnotherapy certainly isn’t a magic bullet to weight loss but the awareness I’ve gained from the process has been very beneficial.
*As an added bonus, Clare gives you recordings of the sessions to listen to. I listened to them before I went to sleep at night and had some of the best quality sleep I’ve had in years!"
