WHAT are beige foods? These are the first set of foods we look at when cutting back sugar from our daily intake of food. We’re talking about cakes, biscuits, sweets, chocolates, crisps, puddings, ice-creams etc. Foods that are high in added / refined sugars and are often mixed with fat which gives you pleasure when […]

I have been doing a deep dive into the latest research into food addictions and obesity, because while hypnotherapy can help you drop excess weight, there are other factors that need to be taken into consideration to make it easier for you to stick with a new eating plan for the rest of your life.

Not that long ago, a scientific study was widely reported by a variety of popular news media outlets. It showed that fewer than 1% of obese people manage to attain a normal weight. It also showed that most people who lose weight—even a modest amount, like 5% of their total mass—gain it right back. We […]

You either get better or you get bitter. Its that simple. You can take what has been dealt to you and allow it to shape you into a better person or you allow it to tear you down and you just become the aftereffects, not the whole of you anymore. The choice is always yours. […]

“We must say “no” to what, in our heart, we don’t want. We must say “no” to doing things out of obligation, thereby cheating those important to us of the purest expression of our love. We must say “no” to treating ourselves, our health, our needs as not as important as someone else’s. We must […]

When you say you’re going on a diet, how do you normally feel? Defeated maybe? Annoyed that you’ve reached a body shape and size you’re unhappy with? Frustrated that you have to start another programme of deprivation and denial? I think its fair to say that no-one has ever really been enthusiastic about going on […]

When people ask what I do, and I say Clinical Hypnotherapy, I inevitably get the ‘Oh, you help people stop smoking?’ thing.   In all honesty, I don’t. Not because there’s no value in doing that for people, there is of course and I have many great colleagues who do this work better than I […]
