Doylestown Board-Certified Professional Counselor and Clinical Hypnotherapist Beth Herman is launching a six-week TRIM-LIFE weight release program beginning in early May.
Developed by the Wellness Institute of Washington and offered at the Cleveland Clinic for Integrative Medicine since 2010, the program uses hypnosis and counseling to help people lose weight. Over six sessions, Herman guides participants to discover the triggers and underlying emotions behind unhealthy eating habits that weigh them down. Once people recognize them, they can use techniques like mindfulness, meditation and visualization to change their unwanted behaviors and avoid giving in to their cravings.
The program is geared toward people that have had trouble losing weight through dieting or experience cycles of losing weight and gaining it back. As a weight release program, TRIM-LIFE focuses on the causes of weight gain to avoid putting on those pounds before having to work on losing them.
