I’m here to guide you, but it’s important that you consult a professional for specific questions or medical concerns. Your well-being is important. So be sure to consult the appropriate experts and take the best possible care of yourself.

Why hypnosis?

Allowing you to be more receptive, to access your unconscious and thus be able to communicate with it in order to offer positive suggestions and allowing you to mobilize YOUR deep or more “buried” resources.

As a dietitian trained in hypnosis, a question comes up very regularly.

How can hypnosis work if I want to lose weight?

Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness that you have already experienced. For example, when you are behind the wheel of your car making the same route every day, have you not reached your destination and thought to yourself that you were not paying attention to the road! It is a state that can be compared to moments of daydreaming.

From your earliest childhood, your brain responds and functions thanks to all these things you have heard, your environment and therefore it is in some way programmed.

On the subject of food, when you come to a consultation with the desire to go on a diet, you know the rules of balanced nutrition. “Eat five fruits and vegetables a day”, “do not eat too fatty, too sweet, too salty”… This implementation therefore does not depend on our will but on this unconscious programming.

Hypnosis can help us make changes in our lives

During a session we are brought back to our unconscious. The latter is described by Freud as our instinctual mode. It is an inner conflict between the personality traits developed by a person and the deep desires that seek to be satisfied.

You will regain your motivation and it will increase gradually over the sessions and in a rather natural way. These sessions can deprogram us from all those rules and thoughts making us slow down instead.

The progress of a session

During a session involving hypnosis and dietetics we first determine your objectives. These must be “ecological” for you. In other words, if it is feasible. With the help of the hypnotherapist, you will find all the answers to these questions. You will be in a deep state of relaxation and with the help of various suggestions, you will be able to regain access to your primary will.

You will be able, thanks to your resources, to find solutions and make previously targeted changes in your daily life. Of course, always subject to your free will.

Hypnosis is not a magic cure! It will allow you to move forward more serenely and freely. But also to take care of yourself again, by feeling better in your body and therefore in your mind. He It is necessary to combine these practices with monitoring your eating behavior with a trained dietitian.
