Ann had three weight loss hypnotherapy sessions with Julie in August and September 2006. In January 2007
this is what she wrote:
"I have always had a food problem. I love shopping for it, I love cooking it and I love eating it.
"What I have had to admit though, whilst all this is OK, is that I have an obsession with it. This obsession
has caused me to gradually pile on pound after pound of unwanted weight. I always felt I could lose the weight
if I really wanted to but this was not true because I couldn't.
"I reached a stage when no diet worked, having tried every one I heard about. I finally had to admit that
I needed help at 15 stone plus, aged 62 and 5' 2" tall. I had spent most of my life helping people to solve
their problems and it was hard for me to ask anyone to help me.
"My daughter already knew the benefit of Hypnotherapy (with Julie) and has been a non-smoker for exactly a year
now. She urged me to try it and I was dubious. I was worried initially about speaking to a stranger. It took
seconds to dispel this fear after I met Julie. Within minutes of speaking to her, I felt she wanted my weight
loss success almost as much as I did.
"What did she do? Through gentle, painless, non-threatening and non-frightening hypnotherapy, she put me
in touch with my "control centre" and once in touch, I became in control of my obsession with food. I still
love shopping for it, I still love cooking it and I still love eating it. BUT I am in control. I eat what I
need now. I do not binge and I do not cheat and fool myself.
"I am still 5' 2" but now weigh 13 stone after 5 months. I want to reduce further and know I will continue to
lose. I am not looking for a quick fix or a rapid loss. I have a long-term view that my eating habit, which is
now normal, will see me reduce to my goal weight in the year ahead. If I need Julie again, she will be there.
But I am confident that at last I have found a long-term solution to my weight problem.
"I would dearly love others to feel this liberation."
