By supporting Feel Good Friday, you’ll help Samaritans continue to provide their life-saving service for the millions of cries for help they receive each year.

Chocoholics! Overcome your Chocolate Addiction!

Are you a chocolate addict?Hypnotherapy for Health Leicester

When it comes to chocolate addiction, chocoholics usually find the best of intentions get thrown out the window. No matter how hard you ‘put your foot down’, the chocolate usually finds some way to convince you to eat more.

So why is it that mere motivation or willpower is not enough? Anybody who experiences cravings for any substance finds that simply trying not to eat it falls short of what is required to quit successfully.

This is because this ‘decision’ is made at a conscious level whereas the chocolate addiction is being driven unconsciously.

What you need is a boost to your unconscious determination so that the desire to remain free of chocolate addiction becomes stronger than the desire to eat chocolate.

Overcoming your chocolate addiction will help you gently re-educate your unconscious mind to give you more freedom to choose when it comes to chocolate.

Why not see if you can give up chocolate from now until Easter, how much weight do you think you could lose by doing that? Get in touch to see how chocolate therapy in Leicester can help you today.

Hypnosis for Stress, Anxiety or Panic Attacks

Is this how you feel?Leicester Therapy Centre

Is this how you feel? Tired, angry, emotional and stressed?

The majority of us went back to work this week, for some its a blessed relief to get away from the family and get back into some kind of normal routine. The Christmas period can be an immensely stressful time of  for many families, how was it for you?

When you keep stressful and anxious feelings hidden, over days, weeks, months and years they can fester inside you and show themselves in other ways. Constantly putting the body in an anxious mode produces the stress hormone cortisol which is proven to hamper weight loss amongst other things.

Do you wonder why you drink so much coffee? Eat chocolate, snacks, have too much alcohol? It’s all down to stressful and anxious feelings which we try to self soothe ourselves with whatever takes our fancy.

When I see new clients for weight control, almost always the real issue is something else that is going on in their life. Unless you feel right in yourself first, you will not be able to tackle things like weight or smoking no matter how much you want to. Some people can change for a while, but then why do diets yoyo, why do smokers start up again? It’s all to do with stress and anxiety.

When the anxious feelings become too much, this can induce a panic attack. A really scary thing to go through. Anyone who suffers from panic attacks will tell you the main fear is worrying when the next panic attack will kick in. Imagine that?

‘Liberated living is not the absence of fear.. but the absence of fear of fear’

Hypnosis can help with panic attacks, anxiety, stress and your fears. With your unconscious mind we work to in input new ways of being for you, helping you to move on and live your life, being able to manage stress better, not absorbing to your detrimental effect.

Stop Smoking Campaign 2013

Have you seen the Department of Healths hard hitting campaign, where there is a Cancerous tumour growing inside a cigerette? It’s very graphic and is launched  in response to smokers who think that the health risks are greatly exagerated.

Stop Smoking 2013

If you’re a smoker its likely that you will quickly turn away from it as it is pretty gross, or like the smoker in the advert, pop outside for a well earned fag.

As an ex smoker, I know how hard people THINK it is to stop smoking. You’re ADDICTED to it, you can’t STOP yourself etc etc. The truth is, it isn’t difficult to stop smoking, you just have to want to do it. Usually something will trigger you to stop, whatever that may be is down to you. Most smokers wish they were non smokers. Of course there are the die hards who insist they love every fag they take, fine, see you in Hospital.

Does it look familiar, propped up outside the back door in all weathers, cold, lighting up and taking in that big inhale, seeing the grey noxious smoke billowing around you? Most smokers hate the smell of smoke, no matter how many times you scrub your hands, spray perfume and chew mints the smoke smell will still be there as it permeates through your SKIN. How can it not when you are inhaling poisonous smoke into the very core of your being?

A friend of mine contracted the Norovirus over Christmas along with a terrible chest and lung infection. As a smoker this was doubly worse as her lungs were smoke damaged and her recovery has been laborious. She has been in complete agony with bruised ribs and lungs through coughing so hard, amongst other unsalubrious symptoms. My smoker friends never ask me for help funnily enough, only when they need it, as was now in this case. She realised the damage she had some to herself and as a young mum didn’t want any repercussions that her past smoking habits can bring. I’m happy to report she hasn’t had a cigarette in 12 days and recovering well.

What will it take you to realise you need to/want to stop? Whatever it is, don’t let it be too late. Stopping smoking with hypnosis is one of the easiest ways to give up. The body starts to repair itself within hours and you can begin to feel better immediately. You can see my website and blog page for further details and my Stop Smoking New Year offer.

Don’t let it be too late for you, you can stop smoking anytime you want, it will be easier than you think.

Is it going to be New Year New You for 2013?

Hypnosis Health Leicester 

Its happening already isn’t it, the dreaded Christmas countdown is already upon us! If you follow Santa, the Coca Cola Truck or Rudolph Reindeer on Twitter you will already know ‘how many sleeps till Christmas’

The radios are now playing all those classic Christmas hits that we know and love, they sound fun now, how long will it be before they become tiresome? As well as all the festive movies on the TV. – Are we having Happy Holidays or a Merry Christmas?

No one wants to think about dieting or being overly healthy over Christmas. It is often the perfect excuse to eat, drink and be merry to complete excess ‘go on, it’s Christmas’ you hear everywhere you go. But just because it is the season, it doesn’t mean you have to take complete leave of your senses. How are you going to fit into that sparkly little party dress or dinner suit if the pounds start creeping on now?

Christmas dinners on their own, with all the lovely trimmings can come in at 2000 calories or more. By the time the Roses tin has been round, mince pies ate and left over turkey sandwiches consumed washed down with lots of mulled wine, how many notches will your belt be going up by?

One pound of fat on your body is made up by 3500 calories. Thats quite some going don’t you think? See how easily it can creep up on you? By all means have a great and happy Christmas but don’t make it extra hard for yourself in the New Year.

We should be eating 3 – 5 times a day, 7 days a week. The majority of those meals will not be out socialising, so be careful where you can, and indulge yourself when it matters.

For those of you thinking of stopping smoking in the New Year, I will be running a special promotion for you, keep in touch for further updates.

Take care all, Shelly 🙂

Losing Weight As You get Older

Leicester Therapy Centre

The older we get the harder it is to lose weight unfortunately.

We know its unhealthy to be overweight. We know that additional body fat can cause problems for our internal organs, our blood pressure and our bones and joints which which are all ailments that appear to rise with age.

This is another good reason to to reduce weight and improve your health and quality of life. With age the importance of weight loss can jostle for position with all the other responsibilities, lifestyle and health niggles we face.

But as medical experts continue to predict the rise of obesity especially with our reliance on processed foods and sugary drinks we must reassess our priorities and perhaps refocus. Obesity shortens lifespan and can lead to classic diseases such as heart failure and diabetes.

So achieving and maintaining a healthy weight as you get older may be the best way of improving your health and prolonging your life.

To help you refocus, see how hypnosis for health and weight loss can help you.

Know Your Nuts

Leicester Therapy Centre

There is a lot of talk about eating nuts and seeds as a healthy snack, and quite right too.

A good variety of raw nuts like almonds, pecans, macadamia and brazil nuts in your diet add many health benefits giving you a whole host of powerful vitamins, minerals and fats, essential for your good health.

Nuts and seeds contain heart healthy fats which maintain the normal structure of every cell in our body. The problem with nuts and weight loss is when we eat too much of them. A small handful of raw sunflower seeds can be 150 cals, have that twice a day for a week and you have added 2100 calories into your diet which will impact your weight loss goals.

Incorporate them into your meal planning and if necessary measure out your portions in advance. I know it’s all to easy to scoff a good few anything before you get to the actual portion part. Have say around 20g of mixed nuts with an apple as one of your daily snacks and you will see how it diminshes hunger pangs  as well as giving you important protein based energy.

Try it for a week instead of your usual snack and see how you get on.

Virtual Gastric Band Hypnotherapy Procedure

Hypnosis Health Clinic Leics UK; Dubai UAE

I get a lot of queries about the virtual gastric band hypnotherapy, it is a very effective procedure and the results gained thorough an entirely natural and safe process can be staggering.

A lot of inquirers tell me that they have been considering going in for the real operation as they think they ‘have tried every diet under the sun’ to no avail, but whilst researching gastric band surgery luckily have come across my information and have got in touch for more information.

Another common theme is that a lot of these ladies and gents do not have that much weight to lose. I mean, I know we have our BMI guidelines, weight/height/body type ratios but a lot of you just want to be able to fit in a decent size pair of jeans or a pretty dress again. But in sheer desperation are now considering going in for a very costly, very high risk operation. Is that you?

The danger with weight loss surgery is that as long as you have the money (thousands of pounds), you can be in tomorrow getting cut open and having bits of you removed or modified. Does your stomach make you eat, or is it your mind? Most weight gain is down to mindless eating and drinking, comfort eating or self soothing. Just because you have half your stomach removed won’t make your cravings any less, in fact it is reported it makes them even stronger as you become more willful in ways to still ingest calorific foods.

Another symptom of bariatric surgery that patients have recorded is an increased level of alcohol consumption. This is a direct result of trying to fulfill your emotional needs from an external substance, be that food or alcohol (Can a gastric band make you an alcoholic?) the emotional patterns and cycles continue, and you are still not happy – or slimmer.

Whether you meet the criteria for the virtual gastric band hypnotherapy or not, weight loss by hypnosis is achievable for everyone. The first part of the work is we look at your lifestyle, emotions and feelings around food, and I work with you to give YOU the CONTROL back. Get your control back over food so you can become the size and shape you want to be, once and for all.

Yes it will require will power, yes you will have to change your food and eating habits, yes you will have to do some exercise or activity. What you won’t get is any ‘fad’ advice, diet plans, food replacements, regiments or a depressing carb free existence to not look forward to (carbs are necessary for good serotonin production overnight so it IS recommended that you can eat them, even at night).

There is nothing more satisfying to see someone let go of all that ‘diet’ baggage and simply make healthier choices because that’s what they actually want to do. To say ‘no thank you’ to a piece of cake or dessert and not feel secretly gutted about it. How would you rather feel? Happy with your healthier choice and losing weight or constantly worrying about what you can eat next?

I am not saying you can never again eat chocolate or have pizza, instead you will have the power and control to think, that you just don’t want it TODAY.

I have some great clients and they keep inspiring which inturn makes me inspire you, one of my ladies had her surgery consultation in Spring (she only had around 3 stone to lose) luckily got in touch with me before the operation and is currently 2 st 7 lbs lighter and hasn’t touched a sweet/chocolate/cake/biscuit (her vices) since. All whilst cooking and eating the same as the rest of the family, going on holiday, working, socialising – all the things that we have to do every day/week/month and year.

I have also worked with ladies for whom unfortunately gastric band surgery hasn’t gone to plan and have been in immense danger which is unbelievably sad and frightening, I will cover more about this in another future post.

You want to be slim fit and healthy, you want to get into that pair of jeans again, you want to wear that little dress in the party season, see what hypnotherapy for weight loss can do for you. As long as you are ready to make the change, hypnotherapy will help you achive your goals.

Please feel free to get in touch with any queries via email, Facebook or Twitter @Hypno_Health let’s get you on the right track to becoming slim and healthy easily, once and for all.
