eating problem

  • Changing Seasons-Tampa Bay Hypno-Therapy Newsletter, September 2018

    Yet another couple has come through my office...their marriage falling apart...over politics. This has actually become so common, I am not the first to write of it.

    One might be inclined to say that politics was just a metaphor for the real problem in this marriage but that would deny that we are living in very highly charged times politically, economically and emotionally.

    Friends, families, the fabric of our community seems to be dividing into polar opposites; civility and rational discussions jettisoned as values collide in households and communities across the nation.

    For we students of the ART of INFLUENCE, there is a lot to study about our country’s current state. Fear is a powerful motivator, but in activating the fight or flight response, it results in more irrational thinking and greater openness to suggestion.

    Just want to encourage you all to VOTE.

    To VOTE INFORMED, and not “Influenced”.

    To VOTE WITH the COURAGE of your convictions, and not your fears.

    I found the League of Women Voter’s to have been helpful:

    Elections aside, and just in time for Halloween, our FREE Meetup for October is on “Overcoming Fear: Hypnosis and Life Mastery” with a special guest speaker, our fellow Mind Artist and CCHt, Ashley Caputo is leading!

    Our November presentation is our annual holiday encore “Weight Management through the Holidays: Hypnosis and Health”.

    Fear is but one of the emotions we must master, if we are to master our relationships, lives and even the fate of this great country. Anger, guilt, jealousy, shame, resentment…even love, kindness and compassion…our hypnotic download affiliate has oodles of recordings to facilitate “Emotional Intelligence”, too many to list. Check them out by clicking here!

    The Hypnosis Education Association of Florida is lining up for our November 9-11th Conference in Orlando. Will Horton is on deck, for 2 presentations and he will be offering a separate 2 day post conference course on working with addictions using hypnosis. Anyone with an interest in the hypnotic arts can attend. Stayed tuned for official announcements at

    Hope you all make time to enjoy the season change wherever you are…


  • Fear and the Season of Food

    Are you motivated by fear? It's time to overcome the fears in your own mind.

    Once at a Halloween Haunted House, I was so frightened by the costumed actors’ hands reaching out of the darkness and touching the back of my neck, that my mind went into autopilot-and I ran. Blinded by fear, focused only on putting distance between myself and those creepy hands, I hurled through the blackness. That is- until I finally slammed, face first, into a wall. I hit that wall so hard, I dropped to my knees.

  • Featured Trance for September: STOP COMFORT EATING

    From our Affiliates at Uncommon Knowledge and Hypnosis Downloads: A trance that recognizes how habits serve purposes in our lives, even bad habits. Changing them is really a matter of finding more useful ways to get those same needs met. Remember, these are for general audiences. If it does not help as much as you want, we are here to help you get past your individual "stuckness".!top100

    Escape the compulsion to make yourself feel better with food

    Do you turn to comfort eating more often than you would like?

    Are the costs outweighing the benefits?

    Life can be tough sometimes. And sometimes the things that make life difficult can go on for a long time. It's only human to want to help yourself feel better, and there's no getting away from it, what's easier to lay your hands on than what's in the fridge or food cupboard? Reaching for a tub of delicious ice-cream, a tasty deep base pizza or a packet of thick chocolate biscuits does not make you a bad person.

    But although you get the instant reward of the great taste or the satisfyingly filling sensation, you've already discovered that reaching out for those sweet, filling foods on a too regular basis is bringing other consequences that you're not so keen on. And making you an unhappy person.

    Which was why you reached out for them in the first place...

    It's a trap, isn't it?  But there is a way out.

    Hypnosis can help you overcome the habit of comfort eating

    Stop comfort eating is an audio hypnosis session created by psychologists with wide experience in helping people with the psychological side of healthy weight management. It uses the power of hypnosis to help you break out of the behavior patterns that seem to have such a grip on you.

    As you relax and listen repeatedly to your download, you'll notice that

    • the problems and challenges you're facing start to seem much less daunting you find yourself getting creative about developing real, practical solutions you develop a new relationship with your own emotions, and feel more at peace with them you find yourself naturally eating so much more healthily, and enjoying occasional treats without guilt or anxiety you feel much more relaxed and confident within yourself

    Download Stop comfort eating and take back control of your own life.

  • Holiday Temptations-TBHT Newsletter, October 2021

    Consciously, we are thinking “ I don’t want to eat too much this holiday.” “ I don’t want to drink too much…, spend too much…, you name the habit.

    BUT it is the season of excess and so for many of us, those powerful unconscious impulses override all of our good, conscious, intentions. In the hypnotic arts we say the conscious and unconscious are out of rapport, they are on conflict with one another ( and a note: the unconscious almost always wins).

    January 2nd arrives and we have put on an extra 2 pounds we will not get rid of ( research shows it adds up over the years), there may be long term consequences from the alcohol abuse, credit debt that takes until next December to pay off, and New Year Resolutions that we will probably not keep and feel bad about not keeping.

    It’s easy to avoid those temptations…when your unconscious is in alignment with the consciously held goal. You do this everyday, you might be tempted to run a red light but your conscious and unconscious agree, you don’t want a ticket or to be in an accident so you stop (most of us).

    The trick of course is aligning the conscious and unconscious, which is the goal of the hypnotic arts.

    What if your unconscious agreed that that the rewards for your restraint are far greater than the rewards of your excess. Behavior would easily and effortlessly flow from this alignment would it not?

    Our FREE monthly MeetUp for November to kick off the holiday season is “ Resisting Temptation: Hypnosis and Life Mastery”. On-line, Thursday 11/11 at 7pm.

    If you have some specific habits of excess you would like to curb easily and effortlessly, our affiliate offers over 1200 titles of hypnosis downloads at really affordable prices (15.00 or less!). There are over 15 titles related to weight management alone in the top 100, and dozens more if you click through to their site. These downloads make really unique and meaningful gifts! Explore their catalogue by starting here

    We will be doing our November COVID Support group call on WEDNESDAY the 24th, and am planning my favorite “Trance to Enhance Gratitude”. Everyone effected by COVID is welcome to attend.

    Mark you calendars, our last Meeting of the year will be our Free December presentation “Recovering Passion and Purpose;Hypnosis and Life Mastery” to get your creative unconscious juices flowing as we head onto the New Year.

    Hope you are all enjoying our Florida fall, and saying yes to the change in your life.

  • Renewing Inner Strength-TBHT Newsletter August 2020

    “I want my life back!”

    That is what I keep hearing myself, and my clients, say these days.Maybe you can relate.

    Now-one day, all of this will be a paragraph in a history book…ok maybe a whole page…maybe a whole chapter. We really are living through unprecedented change on a global scale and all of us are effected. Paradigms are shifting and it is destabilizing, disorienting, and depleting. If you are feeling tired, frustrated and worn out by all this “chaos” in the world at large,or even just all the change in your own personal world,YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

    Come recharge with us at our FREE “Inner Strength-Hypnosis and Life Mastery” Meetup. It’s on-line, its easy, its free. And who knows, maybe you will leave feeling a renewed sense of your own power to handle these challenging times. August 13, 7-8:30pm.

    Or maybe to even grow from this disruption to your life.

    Like a friend of mine, who has used the past few months to explore a new facet of his skills, creating trance inducing music and videos which he shares for FREE at “Happy Fool’s Meditation”. Check out his “Binaural Beats for Sleep”.

    Because good self-care is critical right now. We are STILL doing the FREE COVID19 Support Group, this is an open, on-line space to take care of yourself. Every Thursday morning, 9:30-11. Everyone is invited.

    We hear you-Lots of you are calling because of the changes to your eating habits since the pandemic began. Our affiliate offers a wide range of hypnosis downloads for all manner of food related issues, like “Stop Snacking Today - Instinctively”.!top100

  • September's FREE HYPNOSIS MEET UP-Changing Habits with Hypnosis

    Bad habits-how do we get them? More importantly, how do we change them!? And what if we suggested that every unwanted thought, feeling, or behavior was just a habit-in fact a kind of “trance” that could be unlearned as quickly as it was learned? How does hypnosis help make those changes even faster? We be discussing habit formation, how to get to the core of what your habits are doing for you, and how to easily establish new habits with the hypnotic arts.

  • TBHypnoTherapy-October 2016 Newsletter

    “What’s wrong with me? Why can’t I lose this weight?”


    A person asking questions like these, has just reinforced two very negatively skewed beliefs: 1) that something IS wrong with me and 2) I can’t lose this weight. That is some powerful self-hypnosis! It forces the brain to search for an answer. And the ever creative nature of the brain/mind is that it will find an answer to the questions asked of it.

    Even if it has to make one up.

    Even if it is not true.

    Even if it is not helpful to solving the problem.

    It has often been said, that the quality of our lives is, in a large part, determined by the quality of our questions and questions are powerful tools for change when asked from empowering frames. We will share some ideas on how to ask better questions when it comes to weight management in Our FREE October MeetUp “Hypnosis and Health: Weight Management through the Holidays”, which includes a FREE copy of the trance to participants.

    If you think you are ready to explore hypnosis as a tool for change, or Tampa Bay Hypno-Therapy, we offer our FREE “Intro to Hypnosis” this month. Ready to take your skills up a notch?

  • Weight Management and Hypnosis: How to Get Off the Roller Coaster.

    You already know the basic recipe for weight loss: less calories and more exercise so, why are you still struggling with your weight?

    The trick to lasting weight management is to “think” like a person with a healthy weight and that means changing the way you think about food, about exercise, about health and about yourself! When you change how you feel about these things, a healthy weight and body, for life, are the natural result.

    Now that may sound like a lot more work than another radical diet, a uncertain pill or invasive surgery, but it does not have to be.

    Hypnosis is a tool for making EXACTLY these kind of changes in our habits of thinking, feeling and behaving, quickly and automatically. And yes, it can help you to lose weight and maintain that weight for life.

    This presentation offers a basic introduction to hypnosis and its use in weight management. Participants will be offered instruction and opportunities to practice basic self-hypnosis skills for weight management that can be immediately implemented. The class includes a group guided meditation, a recorded copy of which is available to participants for reinforcement.

    REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED. You can simply join us at the Safety Harbor Public Library, 101 2nd Street North, Safety Harbor, FL on Thursday, June 30th, from 6:30-8:00pm.
