Hypnotherapy CD success story ends love affair with chocolate

Julie Cook had been struggling with her need to eat chocolate for many years, using chocolate to cope with the day-to-day stresses of life and as comfort food when she was feeling down. She found it near impossible to control her cravings and realising that her weight and health were suffering. She knew she had to do something and turned to hypnotherapy for help.

On contacting counsellor and hypnotherapy expert Sharon Shinwell, Julie said “I have gained weight and also my self-confidence has taken a nose dive. I also have found that it has made me do sneaky things like pretend when buying lots of chocolate that it is a treat for my children but knowing full well that I would eat it all myself when on my own and they weren't around.”

Julie feels hypnotherapy has significantly changed her life, “I am a strong believer in trying to help yourself in making positive changes in your life. I feel I have succeeded in breaking a bad habit/addiction and am pleased with myself for being able to do something that I thought was impossible!”

Sharon Shinwell is a published author on the subject of Hypnotherapy and the producer of the ‘Here To Listen’ range of self-hypnosis Audio CDs and downloads which can be found on:
Hypnotherapy for chocolate addiction:

Sharon explains “In an ideal world, face to face Hypnotherapy is the preferred way to use this form of therapy, but in today's fast moving busy life, few of us has the luxury of time or money to go for regular Hypnotherapy sessions. With the advent of new technology, understanding of hypnotic scripts and techniques, and the public's motivation for self-help and alternative medicines, Self-Hypnosis has become a very good alternative.

“Self-Hypnosis is a powerful self-help tool for implementing change within your life. It is simple, effective, non-invasive, produces long-term changes, and can be used by almost everyone. By using a pre-recorded audio CD or download, you will have, at the touch of button, a full Hypnotherapy session that can be used whenever you need to, as often as you need to.”

Self-Hypnosis can be used to relieve many physical, psychological, and emotional problems. It is often used to change behaviours, break unwanted habits, for overcoming fears and phobias, conquering pain, stress, anxiety, and panic attacks, improving health, or for personal development. Often soothing music accompanies the therapy at strategic points, helping the listener to relax, and absorb the information whilst the therapist guides the listener with gentle suggestions, positive language, and life changing imagery.
