Weight Control

Dr. Deborah Gilmour PSY.D. R.N. B.S.N. C.H.T

At Connecticut Hypnotherapy we use a variety of techniques, (including but not limited to hypnoses) Cutting edge Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and GASTRIC BAND WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM. A combination of techniques has proven very successful. Each program is set up individually for the client. I am with you every step of the way, no coming in and sitting listening to tapes. It is all done face-to-face, hands on treatment.


Excess weight has reached epidemic proportions globally, with more than 1 billion adults being overweight or obese and sadly our children are following suit.

It has been well researched that the majority of times emotions are at the root of eating patterns. It is important; therefore, to be successful, we must root out any behaviors that cause emotional and or physical pain. (Emotional or physical pain can be caused, by low self esteem, embarrassment, disappointments, failure, sexual abuse, etc.) It is of the utmost importance to understand WHY we eat, not WHAT we eat. The WHAT is the behavior, midnight runs. nibbling all day long, that extra scoop of potatoes, it’s the consequences of the behavior. The WHY is emotionally based, either to smother the emotional pain or fill an emotional void. If we understand and accept that as truth, stop denial and rationalization we can break down those barriers and self-defeating attitudes.

If we ask ourselves these questions,


Am I eating because I am stressed?


Am I eating because I am bored?


Am I eating because I am depressed?


Am I eating because I am unhappy?

If we can answer yes to any of these questions then we are taking ownership and responsibility for our overweight/obesity. Once we accept that responsibility we have reached the crossroads. WHICH ROAD WILL YOU CHOOSE?

For a while now you have wanted to lose some weight you feel that your size is getting to a point where it is unbearable. You must simply lose some of the excess pounds you have gained to continue the life you are used to.

You may feel your life has come to a standstill — you are at a crossroads where you must decide which path to take. We can decide together which path is right for you.


Let me help you on your journey.
