Diet and weight loss programs tell people what to eat which most people already know. What they don't do is help a lonely person at 9 at night who is filled with probably years of failed diet attempts, hopelessness, and helplessness about weight loss, negative thoughts such as "I cannot do this. It is too hard. I have tried in the past only to fail multiple times."

If you have had any of these thoughts and experiences about weight loss or if you find yourself struggling with weight gain for the first time in your life, hypnosis is a powerful tool to gain access to that part of your mind that has the motivation, confidence, and determination to reach your weight loss goals. 

There is no diet that works for you when you are feeling lonely at 9 pm and you have a quart of ice cream in the freezer.

Therapeutically Supported WeightLoss

Quit Smoking

You probably already know how hard it is to quit smoking. You may have even tried multiple times to quit only to lose your resolve after a few days, (or even hours!). Many people have found that giving up smoking is one of the hardest things that they have ever done. Nicotine is as addicting as alcohol and other drugs and needs to be treated for the best chances of success. 

 

The SMART program is designed to give you the best chance of success in quitting smoking. Based on research into nicotine dependency and what makes one person successful and another not, the SMART program incorporates a multitude of components that give the hopeful quitter a boost up. Central to the program is the use of hypnosis to curb cravings and support a nicotine-free lifestyle. For those who are trying to quit smoking but have concerns about weight gain, hypnotic suggestions may be given that encourage other ways of dealing with the stress of quitting nicotine. 

 
 

The isolation and loneliness that social anxiety can cause can be very debilitating. Treatment involves the use of psychotherapy to figure out why anxiety is present and hypnosis to help you see new ways to make yourself more comfortable being out with people.

Social Anxiety

 

Reach New Heights

Have you avoided travel because of your fear of flying?  Have you missed family reunions, weddings, family trips and other activities that require you to fly?

 

Hypnosis is a great tool to assist you in reducing your anxiety about flying so that you can see places that you want to see, travel where and when you want and feel much more comfortable about flying. Who knows, maybe you will be able to enjoy the experience once it becomes less anxiety laden.

Would you like to be able to speak in front of groups without anxiety causing you panic and alarm?  Whether you are speaking at a meeting of 6 people or needing to stand up and address one hundred, hypnosis is a valuable tool to help you work through your anxiety and make public speaking less stressful.

Speak Confidently
