Due to increased workloads in addiction, anxiety and depression, I will not be running group work for the foreseeable future.
When it comes to Group weight management there
are no good foods or
bad foods, no counting points, no obsessing about what you can and can’t
Nor are there any reward foods. There is no public weigh in. My own weight loss and sustained weight
management has come from working with food rather than treating it as the
enemy and using this programme can help you make long term changes too.
The sessions consist of:
Participating each week, for 10 sessions will give you a range of skills to help you manage your weight and further sessions can be attended to reinforce all the skills and knowledge you obtain.
The groups will be approximately one hour per session.
The content will be a mix of all the techniques mentioned earlier and will touch on a mix of issues connected with group weight management. E.g. A session could include approaches to deal with what to eat, where to eat, why we overeat and aspects of motivation towards healthier foods and disinclination towards less health foods.
The groups are for 10-15 and the sessions will reflect the needs of the group. This means that you get a whole body approach to weight loss as well as being be able to self focus on your own issues.
In Hypnosis you can hear my voice, my suggestions and can use these supportive suggestions to support you after the sessions and into your longer term goals.

may find a new approach to eating. For me, it was a new pleasure in
eating. Being able to appreciate my food instead of being focused on
volume or not wasting anything. I found it easy to notice if I was
bored, stressed, or hungry. Now I can recognise when I used to eat out
of boredom or was snacking as I dealt with an issue or puzzle in my head
instead of actually being hungry. I still enjoy meals out, food choices and can eat with my family.
Each group costs £10 per session attended and there are no further costs involved or products to buy.
The sessions are for me to pass on my knowledge and experience to help you learn and practise the skills of managing your weight and to support you at the start of your weight loss journey.
Since using these Group Weight Management techniques I have experienced a slow and steady weight loss, averaging less than 2 lb per week and now have a healthy weight, my BMI is around 24, I am around 6 stone lighter and around 12 inches smaller in the waist.
I have never skipped a meal, nor have I fixated on food, obsessed about food, or cut any food or food group from my diet. I continue to socialise, eat out and entertain at home and found this new approach to eating both easy and refreshingly natural.
My partner has also lost weight as she absorbs my new interest in food by what I am choosing to eat.
