Firstly, sorry if I have hijacked this thread, I did not mean to.
I went to the hypnotherapist today and I have to say I was impressed. We started off with a 1/2 hour of filling in a questionnaire and a chat about my lifestyle and goal and what I was wanting to get out of the session. I had a few other things that I felt needed to be dealt with also, such as sleep and self esteem issues. So she thought that I may need 2 or 3 sessions in total to work through them. She then taught me a few realxation techniques for when I am feeling stressed or anything that causes me to feel less that "centered".
Then the hypnotherapy, through this she was not giving me dietary advice as such, but more suggesting that I stop and think about my goals (when I am feling anything that will trigger hunger as such) and if I am really hungry when I could actually be only thirsty. Also to always look at how I will feel afterwards (guilty, depressed etc). She was also telling me that how much better I feel when I do eat good, clean, healthy food. Other things were reinforcing my self esteem and self belief.
Before going in, on a consious level I knew what she was telling me was correct, but it had to reach a deeper level (I hope this is making sense and I am not sound like a complete tool!).
So I am going back in 2 weeks and in the meantime I am staying in contact with her via email if I have any questions.
