Imagination Can Motivate Us To Lose Weight These Weight Loss Techniques Work Considerably Faster With Hypnotherapy Surrey
Latest research has found that people lost weight without any dietary or physical activity advice whatsoever — only psychological therapy, hypnotherapy.
Research reveals, the correct type of mental imagery can help motivate people to lose weight.
People using ‘Functional Imagery Training, hypnotherapy, lost eight times as much weight as those using a different talking therapies.
Imagery training, hypnotherapy, helped people to lose 4.3 cm more around their waist and continue to lose weight afterwards.
Unusually, people lost the weight without any dietary or physical activity advice whatsoever — only psychological therapy, hypnotherapy.
The study involved 141 people who were either given the imagery training as we use in hypnotherapy or a technique called Motivational Interviewing.
The results showed that, after six months, those using the imagery techniques, hypnotherapy, lost an average of 4 kg, while those given Motivational Interviewing only lost 0.7 kg.
Dr Linda Solbrig, who led the study, said:
“Most people agree that in order to lose weight, you need to eat less and exercise more, but in many cases, people simply are not’t motivated enough to heed this advice, however much they might agree with it, this does not address the emotional dynamic regarding eating.
So FIT, hypnotherapy, comes in with the key aim of encouraging someone to come up with their own imagery of what change might look and feel like to them, how it might be achieved and kept up, even when challenges arise.
Dr Solbrig explained the mental imagery techniques they used:
“We started with taking people through an exercise about a lemon.
We asked them to imagine seeing it, touching it, juicing it, drinking the juice and juice accidentally squirting in their eye, to emphasise how emotional and tight to our physical sensations imagery is, hypnotherapists have been using this approach for many years.
From there we are able to encourage them to fully imagine and embrace their own goals.
Not just ‘imagine how good it would be to lose weight’ but, for example, ‘what would losing weight enable you to do that you can’t do now? What would that look / sound / smell like?’, and encourage them to use all of their senses. This approach was originally developed through coaching skills and widely used within hypnotherapy.
After a year, the imagery group had lost 6 kg, while the Motivational Interviewing group had only lost 0.7 kg.
Dr Solbrig said:
“As well as being delighted by the success of the study in the short term, there are few studies that document weight loss past the end of treatment, so to see that people continued to lose weight despite not having any support shows the sustainability and effectiveness of this intervention.”
The study was published in the International Journal of Obesity (Solbrig et al., 2018) and adapted by the SCCP
We all know that hypnosis offers us the key to our unconscious mind.
We can all learn easier, quicker and at a profound level with hypnotherapy.
Imagine how much more effective your hypnotherapy would be if we also took into account the emotions that we experience, that might predict us to eat or even eat the wrong kind of food.
Amazingly James has been using this approach within the clinical practice for many years and teaches this approach, and many others on the Advance Hypnotherapy Diploma at the University of Surrey.

Some Advantages To Losing Weight
Lower Blood Pressure
Being over weight increases blood pressure. The bigger that we become the more weight we carry and our bodies increase the network of veins and arteries to the extra weight to keep it alive. This gives the heart more work to do; increasing blood pressure.
Losing weight reverses this process with the resultant reduction in blood pressure.
If you are having trouble sleeping this can trigger your body to want to eat in the search for energy.
If you are having trouble sleeping please let me know, we can address this first. Improved sleep patterns generally help in weight loss.
