Hi, I'm a Hypnotherapist based on the Gold Coast, Australia. I love helping people overcoming a wide range of barriers with hypnotherapy.

Effective Weight Loss Therapy

Yes, it most certainly can!


While most people generally associate hypnosis with issues like lack of confidence or stop smoking help, it has also been proven time and time again to be an effective weight loss method to either kickstart, or compliment your slimming journey.

Hypnosis is by definition ‘The bypass of the critical factor to establish selective thinking’ which in layman terms means bypassing the barrier between the conscious mind to access and communicate with the unconscious mind.

Imagine being guided into a lovely relaxed state and then almost as if by magic suddenly stopping overeating, or stopping junk food cravings.

How wonderful would that be?

But just how does Weight Loss Hypnotherapy Work Exactly?

Emotional eating! This is the most common underlying issue that needs to be resolved.

Do you ever find yourself eating more than you need to make yourself feel better about a stressful situation or emotional event?

Do you often come home and after the evening chores are done find yourself eating things you know you shouldn’t and not being able to just have one? But instead finishing the whole bag of chips or packet of lollies or block of chocolate?

This is most likely emotional or boredom eating and it can feel good at the time and while we know we shouldn’t do it we just can’t seem to stop.

Usually, the cause of this is stress, anxiety or unresolved trauma that leads us to eat more than we should. We therefore eat the wrong things to feel better in the moment.

Luckily, a weight loss hypnotherapy program with Phil Cardow Hypnotherapy can help you resolve those traumas, change your eating habits, lower your stress and anxiety levels and get your weight loss journey underway.

Hypnotherapy for weight loss isn’t about following a fad diet, or restricting what you eat. It’s about resolving the underlying issues that cause habits like overeating, emotional eating, boredom eating, and snacking.
