“I attended a weight loss seminar with Mike I learned to control my hunger with tapping techniques and with the hypnosis sessions can now eat less and not feel hungry. Hypnosis was just what I needed to finally get my control back.”

“I just wanted to say that it was a pleasure working with you I really felt like I had a breakthrough. I recognize that I haven’t investigated these feelings fully but find that the work we did has already provided me with improved ability to eat in a healthy manner. I’ve lost 2 pounds as of this morning and it hasn’t even been a full week. THANK YOU SO MUCH!”

  • Have you tried everything but you’re still overweight?
  • Are you a victim of emotional eating?
  • Reaching for food when stressed?
  • Eating when bored, happy or sad?
  • Over-eating – continuing to eat when full?
  • Craving sugar, fat, chocolate or salt?
  • Addicted to snacking?
  • Is food your friend, and a reward yourself at the end of a long day?

I have worked with a number of clients to help them reach their weight, image and exercise goals. As an experienced Hypnotherapist and Fitness Trainer I combine the Body – Mind connection to weight control and body image.

Hypnosis is a highly effective tool for change and for altering lifelong patterns. Hypnosis can allow you to resolve your issues surrounding food at the source in the deep levels of your being, the unconscious, where you hold your lifelong patterns, beliefs, fears, memories and motivations.

I record the Gentle Direct Suggestion Hypnosis portion of your session on your IPod or a CD while you are being hypnotized. At the end of the session you receive this recording to take home with you and the more you listen to this recording the faster you will see results. The key to transformation is repetition. The more you see/hear/experience your goals, the more they become real for you. Listen only in a comfortable, relaxed state. You can even put the recording on at night and fall asleep to it. Itʼs that easy!

Weak Willpower?

Donʼt blame weak willpower. The strength of your willpower, which is part of your conscious mind pales in comparison with the programming in your subconscious mind which drives nearly all your behavior, often in direct opposition to what you think you want.

Healing Regression Hypnotherapy enables you find the root cause of the blocks in your subconscious mind and release the negative energy around the memories or events. These events generally occurred much earlier in life, when you saw through a childʼs eyes. Once your are clear of the negative beliefs you can lose the weight you want and keep it off permanently.

End Emotional Eating

All eating when not feeling hunger is emotional. It can be motivated by boredom, anxiety, stress, loneliness, pleasure and a list of other emotions. The biggest reason traditional diets don’t work is that they focus on food and food is not the issue. Overeating stems from that mysterious impulse that makes us get off the couch forty five minutes after a satisfying meal and head to the frig or pantry to look around. The root cause of overeating is not the food, itʼs the the emotions underlying our compulsion to eat.

Hypnosis helps you understand what emotion you’re eating to suppress or create, helps your mind come up with healthier ways of dealing with that emotion or emotions and finally, separates food from emotions.

I use a number of techniques to help you control your weight. One example is the Hunger – Fullness Scale below:

The Hunger Scale can help you determine if you are eating for reasons other than that you are hungry. How can the Hunger Scale help you do this? It will force you to determine if you are truly hungry. By referring to the Hunger Scale, you will focus your attention to your stomach. You can tell if your stomach is starving or if it is actually full. If you are trying to eat food when your stomach feels just a little full or more, then there is likely some other reason why you are eating. This is called emotional eating. Emotional eating is when your emotions, not your hunger triggers you to eat. Often times, when a person is eating in response to feelings rather than hunger, they will binge their food at one sitting, which can lead to overeating.

Will it work for me?
