There are many different reasons why we might over eat or over-control what we eat. All of them can respond well to Hypnotherapy for eating habits.
One of my recent hypnotherapy clients had developed a belief that chocolate treats were needed when she was upset. It could be this belief developed as she was growing up as she'd been given sweet treats as a child whenever she was upset. This led to her needing hypnotherapy to help her with her Comfort Eating.
Binge Eating can sometimes just be a habit we've developed. If we get into the habit of always having a big bag of crisps when we sit down in front of the TV then that habit can soon become automatic – “sit down, reach for crisps, eat them”. Hypnotherapy for binge eating can help to change that habit.
Occasionally binge eating fulfills an unmet need. I had a client from Reading recently who came for hypnotherapy for Binge Eating. During our hypnosis sessions together he realised he was bingeing because he was refusing to slow down. He was over-working himself and the only time he relaxed was when he sat down with those chocolate and crisps and ate. Essentially he was making himself Binge more so that he relaxed more. Some faulty logic perhaps but the signal was clear - he was not meeting his internal needs. Once he took a step back at his life and made some adjustments with the help of hypnotherapy in Reading the Bingeing stopped. The habit was no longer needed.
If we're planning to lose weight and keep it off it's important that all of parts of our mind are in agreement and pulling in the same direction. For example if you believe that you must lose weight before going for that promotion at work, start dating again, start making new friends, socialising etc etc then if you hold any inner fears about getting out there and doing those things you may find you subconsciously sabotage your own weight loss efforts. In these cases hypnotherapy for weight loss can help identify and address those hidden fears.
