Often women aren’t overweight simply because they have an appetite for large portions. It may not be because they loathe the treadmill, or because they have a thyroid problem, or because they are too busy/too lazy to plan a healthy meal or prioritise time for a workout.

Instead, unconsciously, they may just be wearing their excess weight as armour, as a protection against an ‘unsafe world’.

We all know what to do to lose weight, we just don’t do it. So what is the 'cause'? This is the question we need to ask and solution we need.

Weight loss, done in a healthy way, leads to mental and physical wellbeing.

However, if you don’t address the ‘cause’ of the overeating, the binge eating, the sugar cravings, the emotional eating, diets will just add frustration to an already frustrated person.

For individuals who’ve experienced a traumatic event, usually some kind of abuse, their weight helps them create a barrier to the outside world.

For some, weight is a consequence of emotional eating. They may use food to numb their feelings or soothe their discomfort. Perhaps it started out as an occasional comforting treat but mushroomed into a full-fledged habit. 

All the research agrees that to enable a person who has been severely abused, either sexually, emotionally or physically, to move forward, the past trauma must be dealt with. There are many ways to do this.

In 2015, Judith Richards spoke at an Australian Hypnotherapy Association meeting and launched that solution. TRTP – The Richards Trauma Process - a very quick, simple, but effective therapy to resolve trauma, stress and anxiety. 

As trainers of TRTP,  System for Success therapists incorporate both TRTP and the virtual gastric band to offer a new and exciting cutting edge, three session hypnotic weight loss program which quickly, elegantly and comprehensively changes the unconscious beliefs, resolves the ‘background unconscious’ issues – the reasons for the emotional over-eating.
