Bariatric Patients

Around half of bariatric patients regain weight within two years after surgery, as noted by a study published by the National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health. Hypnotherapy can be a helpful solution for individuals struggling with obesity as it addresses the psychological aspect of overeating.

Our subconscious habits and emotions often drive automatic behaviors like emotional eating, and must be targeted for successful and lasting change. A comprehensive approach to managing food intake, as well as addressing stress, relationships, fears, habits, self-esteem and emotional connections to food is crucial for successful weight loss and maintenance.


Hypnotherapy is an effective method for transforming negative emotions and behaviors by accessing the subconscious mind. By establishing a harmonious relationship between conscious desire and subconscious actions, hypnotherapy can help bring about lasting change.

Our subconscious is programmed with early childhood associations, which can interfere with efforts to change. For example, if you struggle with food addiction or yo-yo dieting, it’s essential to address the underlying thought patterns in the subconscious mind to achieve lasting results.

The conscious mind includes willpower, reasoning, and decision-making, but it is not enough to overcome negative subconscious associations. If food and body-related thought patterns are not addressed in the subconscious, it will continue to affect emotions and behaviors and result in a cycle of frustration.

Self Esteem

It is critical to address self-esteem and body image early on because young girls are bombarded with unrealistic images of skinny women from various sources such as social media, reality TV shows, and mainstream media. This exposure to over-sexualized and unattainable beauty standards can have a devastating effect on self-esteem. Unfortunately, pre-teens today are also frequently engaging in restrictive diets, consuming detox teas, and overexercising. Hypnotherapy can provide a powerful solution by helping young girls develop a positive body image, empowering them to focus on their talents, dreams, and aspirations.
