Self Image Studio
Gabriella Phillips is a Certified RTT Hypnotherapist specializing in emotional eating, self esteem and compulsive overeating. She also holds a Specialty Certification in Weight Loss Hypnosis from the American Hypnosis Association as well as a Counseling Certification from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
Gabriella founded Self Image Studio with a mission; to inspire women to give up dieting forever. Gabriella started dieting at the age of 8, and eventually reached her highest weight of 332 pounds in her mid 30’s. She understands the emotional pain associated with binge eating, isolation, and overwhelming body shame.
More than simply understanding where her clients are coming from, Gabriella loves being able to provide the support to her clients that she never personally received.
We all know that the majority of dieters inevitably gain back all the weight they’ve lost and more. Emotional eating is a coping mechanism, a survival tactic. This self soothing technique is learned early in life to numb uncomfortable feelings. Dieting focuses on the external rather than the internal cues which fuel overeating
The repetitive cycle of gaining and losing weight leads to feelings of hopelessness, shame, failure, and desperation. In order to shift dysfunctional eating patterns, one must identify underlying experiences and belief systems that perpetuate emotional eating.
After applying these specialized techniques to her own life, Gabriella has finally reached a comfortable weight and more importantly, a happy, healthy, sustainable and balanced lifestyle.
She is proud to offer her clients the opportunity to learn effective and powerful self empowerment techniques that get results, shifting the
focus from dieting to lifestyle and self care, and giving them the ability to find and maintain balance in their own lives.
Give yourself the
tools to succeed
We live in a time where technology and proficiency are coveted more than self care and emotional well being. Many of us were never taught essential skills that help to retain balance and composure during some of lifes most difficult struggles. At Self Image Studio, we embolden our clients with empowering belief systems which enable them to realize their best potential.
It’s okay to Not be okay
It’s important to remember that everyone goes through struggles and personal battles in their lives. We live in a very critical world and are constantly bombarded with unrealistic imagery and negative media messaging that can have a detrimental impact on how people see themselves and experience the world. Be gentle with yourself. Remember that it’s okay to not have all the answers. At Self Image Studio, we help our clients find balance so they can rely on themselves when feeling overwhelmed by the adversities of life.
Did you know that experts estimate we have between 60,000 to 80,000 thoughts per day? Most people have never contemplated the effects of the quality of their thinking. When you feel better about yourself, you feel better about the world, and this can have a domino effect on your life positively effecting all areas. At Self Image Studio, we pride ourselves on commitment to helping our clients realize their highest emotional and physical well being. Through hypnotherapy, we have found that our clients blossom in many areas of their lives.
