NLP

NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) is a powerful tool which can enable you to take control of your mind, thoughts, beliefs and emotional state.  It gives you freedom from the limitations that you have consciously or sub-consciously created in your mind.

NLP is useful for people struggling to lose weight as it addresses the issues associated with over-eating - such as confidence, self-esteem, motivation and negative coping strategies. NLP not only helps people to identify and resolve the issues causing them to over eat, it also helps them to implement long term health goals

NLP can also help with:

  • Low self confidence
  • Negative self image
  • Fears/Phobias
  • Limiting beliefs
  • Problem solving

EFT

EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) helps you return your mind, body and feelings to a state of balance and harmony so you are not limited by negative emotions.

We can all be affected by recurring emotions from past events such as relationships, trauma or loss. We can also be affected by ongoing or future events such as work-related stress, interpersonal problems, depression and various kinds of anxieties. This can cause our emotions to become stuck rather than dispersed.

EFT uses gentle pressure on meridian points - the body's electrical, or energy pathways - to change the way energy travels around the body. By tapping and pressing on the meridian points, small shock waves are sent through the energy system which stimulates smooth flow and clears blockages.

EFT is effective in weight management as it targets the emotional triggers that lead us to crave certain foods and comfort eat. These emotions are triggered by daily stress, issues from the past, a family history of obesity, limiting beliefs about your own ability to lose weight and sometimes fear of the future.

EFT is also effective for:

  • Personal issues
  • Performance blocks
  • Addictions
  • Pain

Hypnotherapy

When we relax and let go of our conscious thoughts we can establish contact with our subconscious minds. Our subconscious has the resources we need to need to deal with a whole range of issues. During a hypnotherapy session the therapist guides you into a deep state of relaxation where the conscious mind relaxes, allowing access to the subconscious mind. Negative thinking processes can then be reprogrammed to produce more effective coping strategies.

With the help of hypnotherapy you can successfully alter habits such as smoking, obesity, drug or alcohol addiction. Similarly when it comes to personal development, it can make you more confident and assertive, it can instill a positive self image, become a performance booster and even help make your life a better place to be in. Hypnotherapy is about empowering the individual to make changes in their life.

Hypnotherapy is completely safe - you are always in control as you cannot be hypnotised unless you agree to it, nor can you be made to do or say anything that you do not want to. Hypnosis can offer you opportunities to improve your life and help you on the path to empowerment.

Hypnotherapy is useful in weight management as it can help by allowing you to overcome unconscious obstacles which prevent you from losing weight and from keeping weight off after reaching your goal weight. Successful weight loss is as much about re-educating your unconscious mind as it is about adopting healthy eating habits, hypnotherapy is a highly effective way of doing this

Hypnotherapy can also assist with:

  • Confidence building/Self esteem
  • Phobias/Fears
  • Negative habits - smoking, alcohol use etc.
  • Panic attacks
  • Exam and public speaking nerves
