Hypnotherapy and Weight Loss
Obesity is considered not only a health problem but a social concern. People all over the world, including those in still developing countries, are gaining weight at an alarming rate. Among developed nations, Australia ranks as one of the fattest in the world. In fact, the incidence of obesity in Australia has more than doubled in the past 20 years. Without action, the trend will continue and by 2025, close to 80% of all Australian adults and a third of all children will struggle with weight-related problems.
The problem is society makes it easy to gain and hard to lose. Convenience foods full of fat and sugar are easily accessible. And cheap. They temporarily satisfy a need for comfort, stress relief and instant hunger gratification. In addition, the more we eat, the more our bodies seem to crave. Couple this with increasingly hectic lifestyles, modern technology constantly at work and little time or inclination to get outside and move our bodies. The equation inevitably adds up to weight gain as calories inwards outweigh calories outward.
To address this, the Clinical Hypnotherapy Centre, uses a whole of body approach. Utilizing Hypnotherapy as well as NLP techniques, mental and physical changes are targeted. Through this concise and tailored plan, the body and mind work together, leading to consistent and long term weight management. This in turn, will lead to better health, longevity and happiness.
Clinical Hypnotherapy to Manage Chronic Pain
People have the capacity to learn physiologic strategies in pain management. Training in such strategies can be accomplished in one to four training sessions, depending on the type of pain problems. Even in an acute emergency situation, patients can benefit from informal hypnotic and biofeedback techniques. Both clinical and laboratory studies confirm the ability of patients to self-regulate specific autonomic functions such as control of peripheral temperature and Electrodermal Activity. Such skills can be used to demonstrate to the patient the connections between changes in thinking and changes in body responses and pave the way for development of skills in self-regulation of pain.
Amanda Barnier, professor at Macquarie University's Department of Cognitive Science was quoted in August 2017. "Hypnosis has a really old history -- at least as old as psychology, if not older. "In the past it has been used to conduct surgeries, amputations and assist people with really severe pain. It actually has a really nice, long, experimental and clinical history and is very scientific.
According to Barnier, hypnosis can be used to provide effective relief for a number of psychological and physical symptoms.to help treat conditions including anxiety, depression, habit disorders, trauma, and acute and chronic pain. Going on to say "Indeed, economic and meta-analyses show that hypnotic treatments can have long-lasting effects and cost half as much as some traditional treatments. Studies have shown that Hypnotherapy is likely to be effective for more than 75% of people studied suffering from diverse forms of pain in both children and adults.
Hypnotherapy for Pain management addresses the body through the mind. This is ideal for those who are battling with long-term pain. Anxiety and stress are two common side effects that also become prevalent with chronic pain and exacerbate the situation. It is known the way the mind responds to pain also links to the perception of the physical sensations present.
The techniques for pain management psychotherapy often include forms of progressive distraction, relaxation induction and the power of visualizations to tackle pain itself. In combination with post-hypnotic suggestions, they help to release tools on how to control the chronic pain and provide focus on recovery.
Rather than pushing the mind to believe that pain is something that does not exist, a hypnosis session for pain will aim at managing the anxiety and fear related to the pain experienced. Hypnotherapy helps to relax the nervous system and reduce stress which makes it less reactive to pain.
Note that the duration and number of sessions for Pain hypnotherapy depends on circumstances. A standard hypnotherapy treatment will last 4-10 sessions. During these sessions, the pain management specialist may also make some recordings to use at home. Hypnotherapy is a safe and natural therapy that has no side effects and definitely worth using. Most people who choose it say it is a great tool to combat chronic pain.

How Hypnotherapy can Help
In any one year, around one million people in Australia experience depression. One in six women and one in eight men will experience depression at some time in their life. The good news is, depression is treatable and effective treatments are available. The sooner a person with depression seeks support, the sooner they can recover.
While we can all feel sad or miserable from time to time, some people experience these feelings intensely, for long periods of time (weeks, months or even years) and sometimes without any apparent reason. Depression is more than just a feeling blue– it's a serious condition that affects your physical and mental health.
Common signs and symptoms of Depression
Avoiding normal situations
Can’t get out of bed
Loss of interest
Over eating or loss of appetite
High Blood Pressure
The Clinical Hypnotherapy Solution

With hypnotherapy, we create long-term change, by addressing the traumatic experiences and stored emotions through the subconscious mind to release them from the mind and body. Leaving you ready to resume living normally again.
Research has shown the Clinical Hypnotherapy used in combination with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is more successful than CBT treatment alone for the treatment of Depression.

CBT has always been regarded as one of the most effective treatments for depression, and has been found to be useful for a wide range of ages, including children, adolescents, adults.
CBT combined with Hypnotherapy (Cognitive Hypnotherapy) is a natural progression for Psychotherapy now combining it with the powerful benefits of Hypnotherapy.
Cognitive Hypnotherapy involves identifying the thought and behaviour patterns that are creating your feelings of depression, and assists you in creating new conscious and subconscious pathways to better manage and alleviate your depression.
