109 people completed a behavioral treatment for weight management either with or without the addition of hypnosis. At the end of the 9-week program, both interventions resulted in significant weight reduction. At 8-month and 2-year follow-ups, the hypnosis subjects were found to have continued to lose significant weight, while those in the behavioral-treatment-only group showed little further change.

Study of the effect of adding hypnosis to cognitive-behavioral treatments for weight reduction, additional data were obtained from authors of two studies. Analyses indicated that the benefits of hypnosis increased substantially over time.

An analysis of five weight loss studies reported in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology in 1996 showed that the “… weight loss reported in the five studies indicates that hypnosis can more than double the effects” of traditional weight loss approaches.
University of Connecticut, Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology in 1996 (Vol. 64, No. 3, pgs 517-519).
Researchers analyzed 18 studies comparing a cognitive behavioral therapy such as relaxation training, guided imagery, self monitoring, or goal setting with the same therapy supplemented by hypnosis.
Those who received the hypnosis lost more weight than 90 percent of those not receiving hypnosis and maintained the weight loss two years after treatment ended.

Thank You Tamara!! My wife and friends/customers have noticed a change already. I looked forward to our sessions and have already “shed” 8 lbs already. I used hypnosis to lose weight 20+ years ago-so I knew it worked. The group sessions don’t allow for the kind of personalization that many of us need. I highly recommend Tamara for anyone with a REAL desire to get thin. Believe you can do it and take it seriously-it REALLY works. Thanks Again!!!
1) Truthfulness – At this time it’s about taking the blinders off and being honest about where you’re at in your life, how you got here and how you’re feeling about it. It’s about taking a look at, and admitting, those things that might need to change about yourself and your life. And asking, “Why do I do the things I do?”
2) Responsibility -It’s important to take responsibility for where you are at in your live, and to take responsibility for your actions and reactions to all things. Not to focus the blame on anyone, but just to know that you have control and you need to be willing to take the reins and navigate to a better place, one step at a time to where you want to be, emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually.
3) Commitment – We are all committed to things that are important in our lives – family, children, loved ones, friends, jobs, relationships. We need to now commit to ourselves! “Make yourself just as important as the children, job or relationship. Make a commitment to yourself and take it seriously, it’s important and you deserve it! This is your life!!”
4) Inner Strength – There will be challenges that lie ahead and not everything is always going to be easy, but you will get through it with inner strength, perseverance and determination. It will require an understanding on your part, a resolve and an inner strength that you can meet the difficulties and challenges that lie ahead. Overcoming these challenges will increase your self-esteem and motivation with each hurdle. Hypnosis can and will increase this inner strength and motivation within your subconscious. You can receive great satisfaction and happiness with each step you take toward building an even healthier, happier, more fulfilling life.
It’s about going to a place inside where you deserve to be healthy.

I agree to look deep inside of myself and discover where I can make positive changes to move me toward my goal. This is not about a diet it’s about creating a happy “lifestyle” that supports me each day in achieving my goal weight of I and then maintaining it. It’s about working together like a coach and an athlete. We both have to do our part. I agree to find healthier solutions to my stress, take on new healthy eating patterns, clear away the old and allow my new beautiful self to emerge. I am committed to putting myself back on my own to-do-list, planning meals, moving my body more and having more fun-time with myself, family and friends.
