Weight Management Program

The Secret of Success

Why is losing weight & maintaining so difficult – Eat less, move more, it’s soooo easy – Or is it?

Using a combination of techniques to help you change your relationship with food, CHD Therapies will offer you a mixture of hypnotherapy, CBT, Emotional Freedom Technique, Mindfulness & Brain Bargaining.

This weight loss program is not about diets and constantly saying no to the foods you love, its about lifestyle change, making the right choices.  We’ll look at when you eat, your eating habits, the choices you make and ALL the excuses you make to yourself.

There are a couple of ways you can approach your lifestyle change with CHD Therapies, small group sessions of 6 people or individual sessions focussing solely on yourself

Do you lose weight only to put it all back on again, or maybe you find it harder to lose weight as you get older?

Do you feel out of control with your eating?

Do you feel that your weight is affecting your self-esteem and confidence …   your health?

Do you sabotage your weight loss attempts but have no idea why?

Do you lose motivation after you’ve lost a few pounds?

Do you feel deprived of your favourite foods, the more you say NO the more crave?

Independent Research

Hypnosis as an adjunct to cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy:
A meta-analysis.

Abstract
A meta-analysis was performed on 18 studies in which a cognitive–behavioral therapy was compared with the same therapy supplemented by hypnosis. The results indicated that the addition of hypnosis substantially enhanced treatment outcome, so that the average client receiving cognitive–behavioral hypnotherapy showed greater improvement than at least 70% of clients receiving nonhypnotic treatment. Effects seemed particularly pronounced for treatments of obesity, especially at long-term follow-up, indicating that unlike those in nonhypnotic treatment, clients to whom hypnotic inductions had been administered continued to lose weight after treatment ended.

These results were particularly striking because of the few procedural differences between the hypnotic and nonhypnotic treatments. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)

Effectiveness of hypnosis as an adjunct to behavioral weight management

Abstract
This study examined the effect of adding hypnosis to a behavioral weight‐management program on short‐ and long‐term weight change. One hundred nine subjects, who ranged in age from 17 to 67, completed a behavioral treatment either with or without the addition of hypnosis. At the end of the 9‐week program, both interventions resulted in significant weight reduction. However, at the 8‐month and 2‐year follow‐ups, the hypnosis clients showed significant additional weight loss, while those in the behavioral treatment exhibited little further change. More of the subjects who used hypnosis also achieved and maintained their personal weight goals.
The utility of employing hypnosis as an adjunct to a behavioral weight‐management program is discussed.
