Typically, hypnotherapy for weight loss will involve a combination of self-hypnosis and working with a therapist.
During your initial consultation, your therapist will ask about your medical history and lifestyle habits to get a better understanding of how best to help you.
Once your therapist has an idea of what it takes for you to lose weight, they will create a plan that is personalized just for you. This might involve some homework so that the hypnosis becomes more effective when performed live with your therapist.
For example, your therapist might instruct you to use self-hypnosis before every meal to prevent overeating and help you stick with your healthy eating plan.
During your session, you will be asked to close your eyes and relax. You may also be instructed to repeat certain phrases or perform mental images exercises that will help you to lose weight.
