Manchester Hypnotherapy Weight Loss By Being SMART

Manchester Hypnotherapy Weight Loss By Being SMART

People often set goals and wrongly believe they will easily achieve them. How many time have you said “I will lose X pounds” only to find yourself a week later eating a chocolate cake?

 

Goals can motivate you, but general unspecific goals won’t. The way to stay focused and motivated is to make your weight loss goals SMART.

 

SMART stands for: S – Specific M – Measurable A – Achievable R – Realistic T – Timed

 

The example goal I use is a common one, that many dieters say “I want to stop eating so much food, because I’m overweight” Even though the goal is seen as positive and when you say it for the first time, you feel committed and motivated, you will give up.

This is because the weight loss goal is to general. A week after setting your goal, you may find yourself saying “I will just have one slice of cake and I will start the diet next week” or “I can have one slice because I lost a few pound last week” By setting Measurable and Time bound goals will prevents this, because you will feel as if you are letting yourself down.

If you set a general goal, there are no specifics“I didn’t say I would lose 10 pound..” so you can, without breaking your own commitment have that extra slice of cake. A Specific goal means you have to make a real choice, you cant hide. Are you going to give up? As appose to moving the none committal, general boundaries of your diet.

 

To make the goal more achievable we can make it SMART.

 

 

101 coaching techniques

 

Specific: Don’t give yourself vague and ambiguous goals or you will achieve vague and ambiguous results. The key here is to make the goal detailed.

 

  • I want to stop eating so much food can become more detailed by saying:
  • I want to stop eating fatty food can become more detailed by saying:
  • I want to stop eating cake (So we have gone from ALL food to just Cake)

Measurable: Always set goals that are measurable. If you don’t measure your goals you will never know if you are moving forward or not.

  • I want to stop eating cake can become for measurable:
  • I eat 10 cakes a week and I want to cut down to 6 cakes a week 

Achievable: many people set goals that are so high or far that they become unattainable. You can have long term goals, but long term goals are so far away that you can allow yourself to cheat. Always set short and medium goals (or milestones) that are achievable.

  • I eat 10 cakes a week and I want to cut down to 6 cakes a week can become more achievable:
  • I eat 10 cakes a week and I want to cut down to 6 cakes a week, I will first cut down to 8 cakes a week.

Realistic: if your goal isn’t realistic then you soon realise that it can’t be achieved, which will in some cases lead to you giving up on your goal rather then creating a new goal. In our example, would the client be happy to cut down/give up eating cake? This maybe a yes or s/he may need to replace the cake with something else

  • I eat 10 cakes a week and I want to cut down to 6 cakes a week, I will first cut down to 8 cakes a week can become more realistic:
  • I eat 10 cakes a week and I want to cut down to 6 cakes a week, I will first cut down to 8 cakes a week, and instead of eating cake when I am hungry I will eat fruit.

In this case the client eats cake when they are hungry, it might have been unrealistic to not eat, but now they are replacing the cake, not giving it up

Time: Goals should have a timeframe, with no timeframe many people will just “never get around to it” deadlines can really spear people on. You may chunk a large goal down into several timed milestones.

  • I eat 10 cakes a week and I want to cut down to 6 cakes a week, I will first cut down to 8 cakes a week, and instead of eating cake when I am hungry I will eat fruit. Can become
  • By 5 Dec I will cut down from eating 10 cakes a week to 8 cakes a week, instead of eating cake when I am hungry I will eat fruit.

From “I want to stop eating so much food” we have “By 5 Dec I will cut down from eating 10 cakes a week to 8 cakes a week, instead of eating cake when I am hungry I will eat fruit.”

Manchester Hypnotherapy Weight Loss Is a Big Pain

Manchester Hypnotherapy Weight Loss  Is a Big Pain

People are motivated by Pain and Pleasure,  the Carrot or the Stick, through the thought of potential Benefits and Loses.

People who want to lose weight but can’t need to focus on the pain of their weight, rather then the pleasure of food they enjoy eating.

After Christmas many people think about the extra pounds they have put on during the holiday feasting.  They commit to dieting,  but this commitment is short lived.  When weekend comes the idea of dieting seems painful “I will miss out on a tasty burger..” with the dieter committing to starting the diet next week.

101 coaching techniques

 

Your mind will motivate you through Benefits and loses. The benefit of the eating a burger is twofold;  it’s tasty and it will fill you up. The loses of dieting are you feel really hungry (painful) and you will miss out on a great meal.

Hypnotherapy can help you by directing your unconscious mind to change the direction of your motivation.  Under hypnosis, your mind will concentrate,  automatically on the pain of eating the burger; how the fat will block your arteries,  how you will gain so much weight that your clothes will no longer fit and how you will feel ashamed of your self as you buy ever increasing clothes sizes.

Your unconscious mind start to see the benefits and gains of dieting.  You focus on how healthy you will feel, how others will find you attractive and how you live a longer and healthier life.

Hypnotherapy works because when in trance, the therapist can embed commands to change the direction of your thoughts-the images in your mind. You no longer see the burger as appealing,  you see the burger as fatty and disgusting.

Public Speaking Confidence

Public Speaking Confidence

At some point we all have to speak in public. You may have to introduce yourself at a training event during the dreaded ice breaker, the best-man will have to give a 5 minutes best-man speech and some will have to present ideas at working during staff meetings. 

Even having to introduce yourself at parties can bring on someones anxieties, and we have all felt our stomachs turning when we build up the courage to ask the person we fancy the most, out on a date.

Today I will share we you a couple of techniques to improve your confidence when speaking in public.

101 coaching techniques

 

Confidence Tips For Speaking in Public.

As a member of International Toastmasters and a Trainer, I have felt the fear of stepping onto stage in front of large crowds. Over the years my confidence has grown as I have implemented the techniques I will share with you today, to help you boost your confidence when speaking in public.

 

Public Speaking Confidence Tip One – Practice, Practice, Practice 

 

This first tip is so obvious and so underused. “Repetition is the key to mastering any skill – Anthony Robbins” I worked with a gentlemen called Andrew who had to deliver 4-5 presentations a year at work. He was an expert in his job sector, highly knowledgeable about his subject and confident in delivering team meetings to small groups.

What you will often find when someone is confident in one area of their life but lacks confidence in another area, is that the person uses different strategies for the different situations.

Andrew would always prepare for his staff meetings. He would write an agenda, have written notes for each agenda item and even questions to ask certain members of staff. He would also visualize the meeting, and imagine questions his staff would ask him, with this in mind he would prepare resources such as statistical reports to use when answering these predicted questions.

The preparation gave him confidence. When it came down to preparing for his quarterly presentations, Andrew would shy away from it. His original experience, where his lack of confidence got the better of him, is a memory that had stayed with him. When Andrew thought about the forthcoming presentation, he’d let procrastination take over, putting the preparation off. On the day of the presentation his lack of preparation would increase his anxiety and dramatically reducing his confidence.

 

Public Speaking Confidence Tip Two – Capture The Audiences Attention

 

The speech can be broken down into 3 sections; The Opening, The Body and The Conclusion. 

The Opening – with the opening section, use this to capture the audiences attention “Today I will teach you a secret technique for capturing the audiences attention”  you can even use this same technique, when asking someone out on a date “there is an amazing new place that everyone has been talking about, do you know about it?” now the potential date is intrigue, and will carry on the conversation, at the right point you offer the date.

Intrigue is powerful because the audience wants to listen to what you have to say. But from a confidence point of view, intrigue is shown on the audiences faces, when you can see that the audience wants to listen to you, your confidence will start to grow.

The Body – Delver 3 key points “there are 3 key things you need to know about capturing the audiences attention, the first is…” This also gives your speech a structure, you will know when to end. Nervous people often waffle, allowing their speech to go off into random and pointless directions. When you set yourself only 3 key points to discuss your speech is more focused, and you feel more confident.

When delivering large speeches, again, use the rule of three. But this time use 3 sub-points for every point you will be discussing (3 x 3 = 9 points to discuss)

The final part is to conclude the speech “to summaries, to become more confident at public speaking you need to…” By having an intriguing opening,  the rule of 3 body and a conclusion you have a structure to your speech that you can follow (again, as with the rule of 3 body, the overall speech structure is split into 3 sections)  

If you realize in the speech conclusion that you have missed a vital piece of information that you need to share, you can also add after the conclusion “before I go I want to give you one last thing to think about..add missed information..” This is a great technique to create intrigue even if you planned this into the speech, as the audience think “were getting something extra for free…I must listen to this” 

You can also use this trick if your speech is delivered under the assigned time.

Always remember the audience have no idea what you are going to say. If you have missed anything or say the points in the wrong order, no-one will ever know apart from you. 

 

Public Speaking Confidence Tip Three – Don’t Say Anything

 

When you talk to fast, even if your subject is interesting to the listener, they will often forget what you said as their mind becomes overloaded. After each key sentences leave a gap, I will often count to 3 or 5 in mind before saying the next point.

The gap will allow the audience to think about and digest what you have said. You can even end your point with a question to the audience, this way the gap (which can be longer then normal) is given to allow the audience to answer the question to themselves.

Leaving a gap is important for public speaking confidence. One because you have a chance to breath, if you talk to fast you cant breath which affects your state of relaxation. Two you have a chance to think about the next point you want to make, often when you keep talking you will forget the order of your script which increase anxiety. Three, I like to look at my audience and the gap gives you time for this, as you will see the people are finding you interesting, and when you see the smiles and nods this can only increase your confidence.

Before I go I want to give you one last thing to think about. These techniques are highly powerful, but if you can just enjoy yourself when you are on stage, if you can just delete any negative self talk, if you can just be yourself (remember as a public speaker you are generally talking about a subject you know well) your confidence will keep increasing.

Manchester Hypnosis for Relaxation

 Manchester Hypnosis for Relaxation

Stress is universal. All people at some point become stressed. Stressed can be brought on by work, family, money problems, deadlines, nerves, phobias and just about everything in the right context.

Stress is a warning sign that you need to relax. Most people fail to implement relaxation into their stressful routine, due to the stress itself. But by learning how to relax and how to control your stress levels you can achieve more.

You have notice that when you’re stressed it takes longer to complete tasks, its harder to achieve your goals and even your communication skills suffer, as you are more likely to snap at others.

101 coaching techniques

 

I have shared 3 techniques to help you relax more, controlling your stress levels.

5 Minutes and Then Relax

If you have kids, a wife/husband or even a dog, you know that when you arrive home they want to talk about their day, play and hug you or lick your face depending on who it is who’s greeting you.

When you’re stressed, this greeting can seem annoying, adding to your stress levels. When being bothered in this way, your stress increases as you don’t know when you will be able to relax. The problem here is, the more you are off with people the worse your stress is. Your partner will ask “what’s up?” causing more stress, as you know this negative identity you are portraying, isn’t you (in many instances you will feel ashamed of your self)

You might shout at your children for no reason causing more stress or you might ignore the dog, who will just want more attention, causing you more stress.

Your family and pets do this because they love you and want to share things with you, they don’t know if you have had a good or bad day or how stressed or relaxed you are feeling.

In most cases this initial welcome will only last around 5 minutes, so prepare yourself – when you arrive home the first 5 minutes is all about your loved ones, put everything else aside and spend the whole 5 minutes focused on your family and pets.

After this initial 5 minutes of love and affection, they will get on with their own task, the kids will play with their toys, the partner may read a book or watch TV and the dog will curl up in its basket. Now you have your time to relax.

Breathing and Relaxing

 

First buy some relaxing music – ocean waves, the sounds of the forest, etc

Second tell your loved ones that you will be down in 5 minutes and that you don’t want to be disturbed

Find a quite room and turn off your phone, as you don’t want to be interrupted. Ideally sit in a reclining chair and take of your shoes. When ready, turn on your relaxing music.

Take a deep breath.

Imagine all the muscles in your body relaxing; imagine the mussels in your forehead relaxing, the mussels in your cheeks and jaw, relaxing. Imagine all the mussels in your back and shoulders relaxing. All the mussels in your arms and legs relaxing. Relax all your mussels.

As you relax, imagine you are on a beach and see the beach from the eyes of the you on the beach. See what you can see, hear what you can hear. Smell the smells of the beach and taste the taste of the sea and beach, feel the feelings that all these senses are picking up.

Beach Visualisation

Spend 5 minutes walking along the beech, feel the sand between your toes, hearing the crunching of the sand with every step you take. Hear the sound of the waves, feel the spray on your face, taste the sea air with every breath you take which makes you feel more relaxed. Really feel like you are walking along a relaxing beach.

As you walk to the end of the beech you will feel more relaxed and distressed, take in a new breath and open your eyes.

This simple exercise when completed every night will help you feel more relaxed each time you use it, as you associate your beach to the feeling of relaxation. You will be amazed how completing a small relaxation visualisation exercise for 5 minutes can help you feel more calm and relaxed.

Hypnotherapy Weight Loss Manchester

Do you feel overweight? Are your clothes becoming tighter and tighter? Is a brief walk making you struggle for breath? Do you want to lose weight right now? Are you worried about Your Health and the Way You Look?…

 

…do you want to lose weight, but you still can’t resist the bag of chips, a hot fudge cake or a sugary drink? Surely there is a way of getting rid of these food urges that are not only bad for you, but can back your health at risk?

 

Dieting, What A Waste of Time

 

Have you tried dieting? Did it work for a little while, and then did you put more weight on then before? The reason dieting isn’t a long term solution, is due to the way your body stores fat.

 

Your body has a baseline; it is use to the amount of calories your body takes in on a daily basis. When you start to diet, you reduce the amount of daily calories you in take and your body which has no concept of dieting, quickly goes into starvation mode.

 

In starvation mode your body becomes super efficient at making the most of the calories it gets from food and drink you intake, to do this your body will protect its fat stores and instead use the calories in your muscles – this a natural defence against starvation, which means when you diet and stave your body you keep your fat and waste away your mussel

 

Hypnotherapy for weight loss doesn’t starve you. The secret is to delete the desire for the food that is bad for you, from your unconscious. With hypnotherapy you can walk past the chip shop, say no to hot fudge cake and choose water over sugary drinks, and still have a smile on your face.

As well as using hypnosis and NLP, we coach you to become healthier, giving you practicable solutions. Do you want to start to living healthier right now?

 

To become healthier and to naturally lose weight follow these 5 practical solutions and see what difference they make for you:

 

  • Empty your refrigerator of all the fatty and sugary foods – chocolate, cream, butter, fatty meats, snacks, biscuits and cakes. If there not there you cant eat them

 

  • Make smaller portionswe were often taught as a child to “eat everything on your plate – don’t leave anything” this embedded command rules your world today, overcome this by making smaller portions

 

  • Smaller Plates plate size affects the perceived amount of food on your plate; when you use a big plate the food portion will look small in comparison, if you use a small plate you can trick your mind in thinking that you are having a bigger portion off food

 

  •  Table Fruit – put fresh fruit and nuts out on your coffee table, if you need to snack you don’t need to go into the kitchen and look for left over stale cake instead help yourself to some tasty fresh fruit and nuts

 

  • Stick to the Listsupermarkets are killing you, they use a wide range of sales psychology to make you buy more food. Make a shopping list and stick to it – only buy what you have put on your shopping list and only add healthy items to your list; this techniques will save you money and keep you healthy

 

Manchester Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss Success

 

How do you want to feel about yourself? How do you want to look? What do you want others to say about you? If you are not happy with your weight and your weight is unhealthy, you can lose weight with hypnotherapy.

 

Parents know that children learn my copying what their parents do. If you eat unhealthy foods that are killing you then your children will copy you – it isn’t surprising that we are living in the only time when child obesity is a real problem. For some, gaining weight has come from their childhood, stress at work or hundreds of other reasons. Hypnotherapy helps you lose weight by finding the cause of your eating, and if you deal with cause the outcome changes.

 

 

We use tailored made sessions to help you lose weight and become healthier, by getting your subconscious to want to eat healthy foods, to encourage you to eat smaller portions and to unconsciously hate foods and snacks that are bad for you. If you want a different result do something different and book a hypnotherapy session today
