Celebrities Who Use Hypnosis

It Seems The Rich And Famous Have Problems Too.

 
And hypnotherapy experts across the globe are run off their feet helping them to them lose weight, quit smoking and manage their lives in a more effective way.

Of course you don’t have to be a celebrity to have problems. You may think they have it easy, but being famous brings with it a whole new set of problems that ordinary every day people couldn’t even begin to imagine.

For starters, let’s take a close look at the ridiculous expectation placed on every female celebrity to starve themselves in order to fit into size zero clothes. Forget the fact that women come in all shapes and sizes; according to Hollywood there is only one size that matters.

And heaven help those who fail!  Luckily you and I don’t suffer under that kind of pressure  or do we? Negative body image is becoming a growing problem in Australia with more and more women developing eating disorders than ever.

The pressure to be thin can send your mind in a spin and the result is often uncontrollable binge eating. Singer Lily Allen went from size 12 to size 8 after  several sessions with a weight loss hypnotherapist, who she  claims has reprogrammed her mind to enjoy healthy organic food and associate trips to the gym with feeling happy.

Sophie Dahl, singer Geri Halliwell and the Sarah Ferguson have all undergone hypnosis for the same reason.

More power to them.

And look; I’m all for reprogramming the mind to enjoy healthy foods and regular exercise. That certainly helps to keep your mind on track. But for  some people that’s just not enough.  Think of overeating and lack of exercise as symptoms of weight gain;

Sure, you want to get rid of them.

But if you’re an emotion just to treat the symptom alone. That’s like putting a Band-Aid on a gaping wound that needs stitches and antibiotics. If you want a long term solution you have to get underneath and address the cause as well. The cause is usually a combination of unexpressed anxiety, low self-esteem and poor body image.

How many times have you chastised your body for not looking the way you want it to? (As if that’s going to help!) Your body is not the enemy here; but many people treat it as if it is. They say ‘I hate my fat stomach’ or ‘I’m a fat pig.’

If you want to be slim, healthy and happy I have a couple of suggestions:

STOP beating yourself up.

It doesn’t work. It’s never worked. Start treating yourself like a friend instead. Oh; and while you’re at it; ditch the gossip and beauty magazines. They’ll only make you feel worse. Find the cause of your weight problem and you’re half way there to solving it.

And of course if you need a little extra help, make like a movie-star; contact a contact a hypnotherapy expert today!
