Have you ever struggled to lose weight? If you have you are not alone. Lack of willpower, procrastination and self-sabotage are often the source of failure.
Why? Because really effective weight loss always begins in your mind.
Changing your physical eating and exercising habits is really important of course but if you do all that and still have negative beliefs and self-talk such as "I hate dieting" or 'weight loss is always a struggle for me" then you will be going a long way to sabotaging your own best efforts.
This course is all about helping you to avoid those pitfalls, so that you can make the process of slimming down as effortless as possible. In each lesson I will be introducing you to a combination of coaching skills and powerful mind tools that can help to make your journey to slimness very much easier.
Why am I qualified to help?
Because I've been in practice as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Health Coach for over 15 years and I've helped hundreds of people just like you.

Welcome to Mind Skills for Weight Loss. In the lessons that follow I will be helping you to understand why your innermost thoughts and feelings might actually be stopping you from losing weight and I'll suggest some simple self-help tools to help you stay on track and use the power of your mind to make the journey to a slimmer you as easy as possible.
Setting a very clear and specific intention is the first step on your weight loss journey. This play sheet will help you discover how strong your intention really is for each of your goals. I suggest you use the planner to write out your specific weight loss intentions and then revisit them each week until you have reached your target weight.
In this lesson we will be exploring how you can measure and raise your commitment to succeed.
We will also look at how you can boost your natural enthusiasm to achieve your dieting goals.
You will be far more successful if you take the time to set yourself a goal for your weight loss. Setting SMART goals will be even more helpful. This lesson explains why and how you should go about it.
Writing down your goals is a step that many people miss. But it can bring great rewards, especially if your goals are SMART. Use this play sheet to help you focus your goals and stay on track.
This lesson is all about helping you to ensure your desire for success is stronger than your reluctance move forward.
In this lesson I'll be helping you to explore some of your inner beliefs about weight loss and I'll be suggesting some simple ways you can learn about overcoming any inner blockages that might be standing in your way of success.
Mind mapping is an excellent way of helping you get in touch with some of your more deeply hidden feelings and beliefs about your body shape and size and your willingness to lose weight. This is a fascinating exercise. Do try it if you can.
This play sheet builds on the previous lesson on mind mapping. It will help you discover if you have any secondary gain or hidden beliefs that are blocking your weight loss.
In this lesson you will learn about the six stages of the change process and where you are in the change process in relation to reaching your target weight.
One way to help you tap into the importance of making the effort to change is to look ahead at the consequence of ‘not changing’. It can be a great reality check and may well give you the motivation you need to move towards your ideal weight. This play sheet talks you through the process.
This lesson is all about exploring ways that you can overcome temptation and stay on track.
This is one of the most important aspects of the whole course! I suggest that each week you print out this weekly review, fill it in and keep it somewhere where you can refer to it often. Week by week these reviews will give you an excellent overview of your progress, and remember by actually demonstrating your commitment to change by writing out your intentions you will be much more likely to succeed than people who don't!
This lesson draws together the key threads of the course so far and also takes a look at the importance of evaluating your self-talk and inner beliefs about being thinner.
