I went to Fern to help me eat more healthily. I did not have a weight problem, but I was "addicted" to sweet things - candy, cakes, baked gods of all descriptions, diet soda etc etc and I wanted to STOP! I wanted to make choices that were good for my health and welbeing. To see food as something to fuel my body and aloww great workouts at the gym and good health on a daily basis. The bonus of losing weight was something I hoped would come with the deal, but it was not my primary concern, although I was very much hoping to lose body fat and build lean body mass.
As soon as I met Fern I felt her positive energy and comforting and empathetic nature. I felt immediately at ease with her and knew I would be able to relax into hypnosis with her without fear. (I have been hypnotised succesfully before so sort of knew what to expect.)
I was seen at Ferns home office which is beautifully set up, displaying all her certificates and credentails which is another confidence boost. We talked for a while, setting goals for the session. Even this pre hypnosis chat was beneficial as Fern has a great way of helping you see things in a more positive light and I felt that this part of the session was as therapeutic as the hypnosis.
The hynosis itself is very relaxing. You have to give into it - really relax - but you are concious of what is going on and always in control. Sometimes you wonder if you are even really 'under'! But relax with it, go with it, follow her voice and trust....
It can be emotional, which is another reason it is good that Fern is so approachable and you can be at ease with her, even during the emotional bits.
At the end, you fel like - well - no different really! You leave and wonder if you were just fooling yourself! But then the days pass and you find yourself making the right decisions over and over again - some very easily - some with a little more will power required - but hey - the right decision made EVERY time. Thats when you know it has been succesful! In the 1st 10 days I lost about 3lbs - but more importantly, found I had drunk nothing but water and green tea, and had not touched ANY of my "bad" foods! (Even though I am allowed a taste if I want to/need to to be part of a celebration or whatever).
On my second visit we talked again, about how I had been, where it had gone really well, where things were stil a little more difficult and we again set goals for the second session. That was yesterday. And Christmas Eve is one week away....lets see if I can enjoy the Holidays and yet ramin healthy! I have no doubt at all that I will and I am therefore looking forward to celebrating with family and friends with no fear at all of post bingeing regrets that have been the curse of holidays past!
All I can say is Thanks Fern! You are a little miracle!
I look forward to session 3 in a few weeks time - but I am sure it will just be a nice little reinforcement to an already succesful new way of life. :)
