As a weight control specialist I believe medication starts on the plate!!!!

Weight issues can have many implications.  I like to think of a weight issue of any kind, to a greater or lesser degree, is the body communicating that some thing needs to change.  We are all programmed to slip into unhealthy habits for comfort and food is no different.  You will be interested to know that once you understand the relationship between yourself and food, and get to the roots of the matter, you are then in a stronger position to understand your reactions, and start to choose healthier options.

Deep rooted repression

I have been interested in food for as long as I can remember; even before I became a therapist.  After all, it is enjoyable… it is nutrition… it is energy… it is a necessity to survive!!!  So do you want to survive feeling at your optimum or do you want to survive feeling held back.

Before your food hits the plate; a healthier outcome requires planning.  You will be interested to know that you can learn to plan better!!!  You will also be interested to know that better planning leads to taking control of food.  Taking control of the food you eat, rather than food having control over you.

Unhealthy food choices on the surface may have an underlying psychological cause! or a physical cause!

As a Counsellor I am trained and qualified to work at a much deeper level starting with the conscious mind, and thereafter exploring your inner personal world deeper, (getting beneath the surface and beyond the symptoms), the process starts at the point of assessment/s so that your pathway forward becomes clearer from the beginning.

Curved pathway

As a Hypnotherapist I specialise in helping people to control their weight issues; working with the subconscious/unconscious mind, as well as the conscious mind, to help behaviour change.  Habits reside in the subconscious/unconscious mind

As a NLP Life Coach I am experienced and qualified to help you to maintain your weight control for the longer-term.  Some people seem to be able to control their weight for a period of time only.  Yoyo dieting is communicating mixed messages to your body, and therefore you body will not serve you well, with mixed messages being received.  The relationship between you and your body, like any other relationship, needs to be built on good effective clear communication for a win-win outcome.

As a rule I prefer to help people to explore the relationship with food initially, and make some autonomous changes for the better.  These changes once measured can be information; information to make informed decisions, decisions for you which are unique to you and the outcome you want.

Therefore, as a specialist HYPNO-BAND Weight Loss System™ licensed practitioner, where I hold a Diploma in Weight Control;  for best results I underpin weight-management with Counselling; Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Hypnosis for healthy eating and/or the Hypno-band, coupled with coaching;  Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), for an all rounded flexible approach, to achieve best results.

There are more images below that will show you where I practise, which is very therapeutic in its own right, with water fountains splashing, the sound of nature, the aroma of peace…in a very natural setting.
