Halifax Hypnosis
A Full Service Hypnosis Practice located in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Our Weight Management Program

Hypnosis has been proven to be one of the most effective ways to lose weight. Are you tired of trying and failing with weight loss pills and diets? Stop searching! Its here! 
Hypnosis goes to where the problem is ... the subconscious mind. Hypnosis plants positive and helpful suggestions in your subconscious mind to promote your own natural action of shedding those pounds.

I'm really excited to report that I have received training and certification in Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis for weight management. The course was taught by Sheila Granger who made the trip from the UK to New York to introduce her technique to Hypnotherapists from the US and Canada. This technique was developed in England and is just starting to catch on in the US.

I am the only Hypnotherapist this side of Montreal trained and certified in Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis.

Gastric Band Hypnosis has recently gotten a lot of attention in the US media including ABC's Good Morning America and The View. Click on the link below to see an ABC segment on Gastric Band Hypnosis.

Here is the link to the ABC show.

Hypnosis for Weight Loss... Does It Work? Yes, research demonstrates a significant effect when using hypnosis for weight loss.

In a 9-week study of two weight management groups (one using hypnosis and one not using hypnosis), the hypnosis group continued to get results in the two-year follow-up, while the non-hypnosis group showed no further results (Journal of Clinical Psychology).

In a study of 60 women separated into hypnosis versus non-hypnosis groups, the groups using hypnosis lost an average of 17 pounds, while the non-hypnosis group lost an average of only .5 pounds (Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology).

In a meta-analysis, comparing the results of adding hypnosis to weight loss treatment across multiple studies showed that adding hypnosis increased weight loss by an average of 97% during treatment, and even more importantly increased the effectiveness POST TREATMENT by over 146%. This shows that hypnosis works even better over time (Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology).

Ask Yourself...... 

What kind of foods am I eating? Are these foods actually sabotaging my body's ability to lose or maintain a healthy weight and just store fat instead?

Am I eating in excess, past the point of fullness? Are these extra calories the culprit in my weight gain or lack of weight loss?


Am I physically active in my everyday life? Am I convincing myself that I don't have time to exercise while my metabolism continues to slow down?


Am I constantly telling myself that I'm overweight and that I'm a failure when I look in the mirror? Am I feeling disappointed in myself? Is this telling my subconscious mind that this is my true identity, reinforcing negative behaviours?


This Can All Change For You

These questions are very important. By asking these questions, you have started a new dialogue with your mind and body. Now, with our weight loss hypnosis program, we can speak directly to your subconscious mind and reverse the negative answers you have been getting; and you start seeing and feeling those extra pounds melt away.

Hypnosis will set the stage for your personal program but it takes more to lose the weight and more importantly keep it off forever..it takes good eating habits and physical activity...thats why we have incorporated fitness and nutrition counselling by a Certified Personal Trainer and Nutrition and Wellness Specialist. This combo will give you all the tools to realize your goals...for now and forever.

Your goal of losing weight will come very easily once you have aligned your thinking and your beliefs with what your body needs to do to create a healthy operating system.
Our program works in 3 ways - here's how:

  • Hypnosis will create a mental desire to lose weight and the natural bodily actions to lose weight. You will acknowledge the choices set before you and choose a new direction that creates strong desire and dedication to your goals of losing weight. You will be given suggestions for your unconscious mind to speed up your metabolism, to burn un-needed fats and to create more energy for you to be more active throughout your days.
  • Our Certified Personal Trainer will custom design a fitness program for you. You don't have to join a gym or do anything if you wish..the program is there for you to use if you agree that a fitness program will get you to your goals faster.  
  • Our Certified Nutrition and Wellness Specialist will evaluate your diet and recommend changes you can make to eliminate unhealthy foods and incorporate healthy foods and eating habits into your new lifestyle. We will discuss in detail healthy food alternatives, balancing insulin release etc.
