Hypnotherapy: a well-kept weight loss secret
Have you tried diet after diet but are unable to shed the pounds? Are you tired of spending money on nutritionists and personal trainers without tangible results?
Hypnotherapy may be the solution for you.
Research has shown hypnosis to be a surprisingly effective way to lose weight.
In a University of Connecticut study, hypnosis subjects lost more weight than 90% of others and kept it off 2 years after treatment ended.
Another study reported that weight loss with hypnosis can more than double the effects of traditional weight loss approaches. (University of Connecticut, Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology – 1996.)
You may be wondering:
Why is hypnosis so effective for permanent weight loss?
The secret is using your mind to control your cravings and emotional eating. Make permanent weight loss possible with hypnosis by changing your mind.
Working with hypnosis, I have witnessed patients finally successfully reach their weight loss goals and keep it off!
How does hypnosis work?
When experiencing hypnosis, also referred to as hypnotherapy or hypnotic suggestion, you may feel calm, relaxed and are more open to suggestions. It is usually done with the help of a trained hypnotherapist using verbal repetition and mental images.
Hypnosis is used to help you gain control over undesired behaviors or help you cope better with anxiety or pain. It’s important to know that although you’re more open to suggestion during hypnosis, you never lose control over your behavior.
Your unconscious mind may believe that certain chronic behaviors are necessary for you to function in a particular way. If a part of you believes that is true you are much less likely to change those habits for long.
The problem is that many folks who fail to lose weight are not aware of their unconscious thoughts, such as emotional eating.
Hypnosis helps you become aware of eating habits that are causing your excess weight. Then it will be possible to create new healthy eating behaviors.

Friends tell me I look great.”

“I was referred to Paula by my fitness trainer. She seemed confident that Paula could help me lose weight. Also, when I first came to see Paula I had high blood pressure and difficulty sleeping due to anxiety and stress. After working with Paula for 3 months I’ve continued to lose weight and sleep better. Also, my blood pressure has dropped from 140 to 120. I’m eating healthier, exercise regularly and deal with anxiety and stress with the relaxation methods Paula taught me. I’m very grateful for Paula and highly recommend her.”

“I believe working with Paula through hypnosis can help tennis players improve the level of their game. I was about to enter a tournament when I had trouble volleying at the net. I met with Paula and she worked with me with hypnosis on focus and stroke execution in our session. Several weeks later (after only the 1 session) I was thrilled to win 2nd place in my division. My volleying had never been so good. Thanks Paula.”
—J.S. Cupertino, CA
“As a golf pro and competitive golfer, I was amazed at the results of only one hypnosis session with Paula Leslie. I decided to see Paula because I had just lost a tournament due to my poor putting. A week after my hypnosis session with Paula I was on top of my game. My focus and putting allowed me to win the tournament. I definitely recommend Paula’s hypnosis work to any athlete.”
