Case confidential Hypnotherapy helped me kick my food cravings ‘Susan’ is 41 and lives in Dublin My weight was always going up and down by up to 1 ½ stone and it was down to my very sweet tooth. I love chocolate and could eat a lot of it every day, especially after dinner when my children had gone to bed. I am a real chocoholic. I had tried all the well-known diets, but just found it disappointing and the weight went back on again. When I decided to return to college I realised that the new routine would leave me very likely to put on weight again and I was concerned about it. Then I read a story in the paper about a woman who had found hypnotherapy helped with her food cravings. I showed it to my mum who said I should give it a go. So I contacted Fiona Brennan and we agreed to meet in six weeks’ time. She sent me a questionnaire which made me do a lot of thinking about what I wanted out of it. In the first session we explored why I eat and where I eat. Fiona is very good at getting you to pin down what you think your issue is. Then I had two more sessions – some people have more I have heard – and these were very much hypnosis based. Consultations cost €75 for an hour and sessions are €100. I dropped ½ stone the following week. It was like Fiona just switched off my desire for chocolate. At the end of the treatment I had dropped 1 ½ stone. I am now back into a loose size 12 with very little effort. My last treatment is now over six months ago and I just don’t want to eat anything sugary – it’s like the sugar demon has just gone. I am sleeping better and have less sugar highs followed by an energy crash. It has regulated my energy levels better and I am healthier overall. A year ago I would have been quite distrustful of something like hypnosis, but now I think it is the best weightloss technique ever.
