You can become the professional that people seek out for Weight Control! Clients know how to lose weight, they’ve been in all the traditional programs. The client comes to you for the motivation, focus and amazing mental techniques available from hypnosis. Use Amnesia to stop nighttime eating, a Hallucination to make candy unappealing, or an Age Regression to release an emotional barrier. Weight Loss is a huge multibillion dollar industry and you have a unique tool as a hypnotist to offer clients real help. When you use Hypnotic Phenomena to change their mind, then the weight changes. Stretch the Mind then Shrink the Waist!
Weight loss clients need to experience results to reinforce the decision to use hypnosis for lifestyle changes. Hypnotic taste/food aversions, when used as part of a larger weight control plan, can give the client evidence and motivation to persist and succeed. Participants will be rewarded with helping clients who will refer more clients. William Mitchell has hypnotized hundreds of individuals that have lost from 10 to 100 pounds in one year.
