While reading about the success of the Gabriel Method for weight loss we started to think about how the techniques described actually sounded a lot like hypnosis!
Jon Gabriel is the founder of this method and he speaks a lot about searching for the root of the reasons why people put on weight and how many people subconsciously put on weight in order to pad themselves and protect themselves from being hurt. He uses a visualization technique where people learn to feel empowered and strong and no longer need food as a source of comfort or the fat they carry as protection from past pain and trauma.
At Aim we some of our methods are similar but we additionally provide talk therapy and personalized hypnosis sessions to get to the root of food issues and emotional eating. By providing support and personalized plans we are able to look at both the emotional and the physical aspects of our clients weight issues and help them make lasting changes to their health and lifestyles.
This link is a conversation between Gabriel and Dr Roberta Themes on her use of hypnosis for weight loss. Dr Themes' explanation of what a typical hypnotherapy session is like is quite similar to a session at Aim.
