Why? Because they focus on the wrong thing!
The subconscious mind is the place where the root cause of people's trauma, addiction, habits, or any other unwanted behaviour, tend to be buried. And since COACHD Hypnotherapy opens a doorway right to your subconscious, you too will be able to address any negative beliefs, and experience fast, powerful, lasting change.
Making smarter and healthier food choices and exercising are obvious components when trying to lose weight, and you shouldn’t ignore them. But in many cases, maintaining long-term success with your weight means ridding yourself of the deeply rooted subconscious beliefs that have been sabotaging your weight control efforts this whole time. That is precisely where my Rapid Transformational Therapy™(RTT™) and Hypnotherapy for weight loss and my COACHD Method Coaching™ sessions for weight management come in, and why my treatment is so succesful.
Trigger behaviours can be when a person habitually reaches out to eat junk food after a stressful day. It comforts them in some way, which is why junk food is also referred to as comfort food. One such trigger can be a feeling of loneliness or not feeling loved. COACHD Hypnotherapy for weight loss can help release these feelings in a profound and healthy way. Not only does COACHD Hypnotherapy combine hypnosis to help you lose weight, but it also helps you wire in powerful new feelings of strength, health, control, and confidence that can benefit you across all areas of your life.
Another name for your homeostasis is your ‘comfort zone’. This comfort zone is the point at which your mind and body consider themselves to be safe and ideally placed. It is all your mind has known for a very long time, and since your mind resists change, because change may equal danger, it will do everything it can to maintain this comfort zone.
There isn’t a quick fix to breaking your mind and body’s homeostasis. In fact, it is an emotionally laborious process that requires you to work with your subconscious mind and change your psychology. The good news is that when you start to work on the root of your problem at a subconscious level, then almost automatically your conscious actions will begin to correspond and align with what your subconscious is ultimately trying to achieve, such as achieving and maintaining a healthy weight.
COACHD Hypnotherapy helps you identify certain behaviour triggers that you may not even be aware of, and disarm them so that you can break the chain that is binding you to your weight control issues.
However, not all gains are created equal, and not all gains are obvious. Because of this, it is important for you to understand what your secondary gains are when it comes to your weight control issues. These secondary gains may be contributing significantly to your struggle. COACHD Hypnotherapy will help you identify your secondary gains and understand how they are influencing your eating habits.
Of the two types of gains, the most obvious one is called ‘primary gains’. These are the ones you can knowingly identify. For example, imagine you are feeling a sense of guilt because of missing an important work or social event due to not feeling ‘up to it’, however, a later medical diagnosis supports your excuse, and in turn your behaviour - so now you needn’t feel so guilty after all. That’s a primary gain so far as your mind is concerned.
Secondary gains on the other hand are the ones you have no idea you are seeking. For example, not attending a job interview because you didn’t prepare for it. In this case, missing the interview gives you a secondary gain which is a ‘sense of safety’ because not attending the interview also means you can’t fail the interview, thereby avoiding the feeling of failure and judgement.
A secondary gain is a secondary subconscious reason that you’ve given yourself for keeping your weight on. For example, not wanting to attract attention to your sudden weight change and just wanting to blend in and go by unnoticed. Another more common reason is when someone has been labelled as overweight or fat during their childhood and early development years. These people grow up self-identifying with the overweight or fat label, which because of the constant reinforcement has become part of their belief system. Now if they were to change their bodies and lose weight, they risk losing that identity and a sense of who they are. It can be very hard for someone to consciously let go of this identity part of them.
With that in mind, the reason why COACHD Hypnotherapy works so very well with weight loss is that it helps you identify your secondary gains so that you can see the role they are playing in your eating habits. Once you have a clear understanding of your secondary gains you are in a position of power over your subconscious mind and can actively work on letting them go.
Weight loss hypnosis is an incredible tool for helping you take control of a problem that you’ve been struggling with for years. A long term issue like this usually points to something deeper and more profound than just poor eating habits.
Hypnosis gets your mind in a highly relaxed and open state, from here I can help you find the root cause of your weight-loss issues so that you can free yourself from the beliefs, thoughts, feelings, and actions that have sabotaged your weight-loss goals time and time again. My clients can achieve powerful long-lasting results after just one to three sessions of COACHD Rapid Transformational Therapy™(RTT™) and Hypnotherapy for weight loss and/or disordered eating.

Here’s an example of a root cause in action. Imagine that during childhood a parent or carer constantly scolded you for your bad behaviour and banned you from eating sweets. Following each incident, you behaved well for a week or so and as a reward, you got your sweets back, and you feel good again. Over the years this positive reinforcement of your good behaviour by being rewarded with sweets results in you craving comfort foods whenever you feel bad or naughty.
You can see from the above example why it’s crucial for an expert therapist like me to help you investigate and interpret the root cause of your damaging relationship with junk food, or other disordered eating patterns. Once you have this knowledge and understanding I can help you eliminate the damaging beliefs and habits that have been holding you back in life. I then help you install positive new beliefs that trigger powerful new patterns of thought and behaviour so that you can finally achieve your weight management goals and become the person you want to be.
Forcing yourself into a restrictive diet won’t work and can often lead to the opposite of what you’re aiming for. This is because when you deny yourself something, by nature your mind and body will want it more. Fortunately, there is hope for your weight control future. Hope for a healthy new relationship with food and the life you deserve.
