In the UK and the USA, obesity has been labeled as an epidemic. (FAI 2014). Obesity is defined as carrying too much body fat for your height and gender, to the extent that it poses a risk to health. (Chrysalis 2010). People who have tried different ways to lose weight and find none “work”, will seek that “ultimate” solution. With many addictions, the resolving factor is to eliminate them from a person’s day to day living, those being alcohol, drugs etc. (FAI 2014). Food isn’t something that can be eliminated. It would be more effective that a change would need to be considered and an assessment of what the underlying issues are in order for the eating habit to be changed.

I would ask about their understanding of hypnosis and any previous experience ascertaining any ethical reasons why I may not treat Miss E, including any form of psychosis or contraindicated medications. If this were the case, I would refer Miss E to a qualified professional. Confidentiality will be held at all times. I would find out reasons for wanting to lose weight. It wouldn’t be in my remit to act as a nutritionist if I was not qualified to do so. (Chrysalis 2010). I would need to refer the client on if, after questioning, I felt the client needed more appropriate guidance.

Weight loss hypnosis is used in aiding to alter lifestyle to a healthier one instead of their previous more detrimental ways (Chrysalis 2010). I would ask what the client's goals are. Miss E wishes to lose 2 ½ stone and hopes to have lost this in three months. I would need to identify whether the time-frame is realistic and achievable. According to the UK NHS website, it is realistic to lose at a safe and sustainable rate of 0.5kg to 1kg (1lb to 2lbs) a week.(NHS 2014) For most men, consuming no more than 1,900kcal a day, and for most women, 1,400kcal. In terms of Miss E’s goal weight loss, this would mean longer than what she had set as her target. This would be addressed to eliminate false expectations towards the effects of hypnotherapy. We would readjust the goals, setting realistic and achievable goals that will not leave her feeling unsuccessful. I would find out a detailed history about her relationship with food and dieting using different questioning techniques – paraphrasing, reflecting, clarifying and summarising. It has been pointed out that Miss E has struggled with her weight, dieting and putting the weight back on.

The next step would be to discuss her motivation for losing weight. I would ask on a scale of 0 to 10 to lose the weight, where 10 is very motivated and 0 isn’t at all motivated. 8 and 10 will generally be more successful in their weight loss through hypnotherapy. A score lower than 8 will need to be investigated further to find out why they are attending the sessions and whether or not you can heighten their motivation, otherwise the hypnotherapy is likely to unsuccessful. (Chrysalis 2010) If a client is attending hypnotherapy because of someone else's desires, then there is a likelihood it will be unsuccessful. The techniques used require personal motivation. Miss E may be lacking in motivation from the many previous failures in weight loss from dieting that she has mentioned. “She has tried many diets” (Chrysalis 2010). I would say that her motivation is more for herself this time – “she is now ready” (Chrysalis2010). It would be important to discuss that diets vary, but most are based on the same themes (NHS 2014). I would reinforce that diets often use techniques relying on willpower or food supplements which generally work short term as they are hard to sustain, often leading to returning to old eating habits.
