This message of the importance of beliefs in weight loss was also delivered recently by researcher Dr. Amelia Hollywood from the University of Surrey in the UK. Weight loss medication is widely prescribed but with very mixed results. Often patients do not lose any weight or lose some and then gain back more, the weight loss researcher reported.
Addressing key beliefs about self image and the weight loss process is something that experienced hypnotists can help people with very effectively, noted Gruber. However, Gruber, who runs a successful hypnosis practice at the Queen Elizabeth Health Center in Montreal, also cautioned how important it was to find the right hypnotist to work with to ensure success.
Finding a Calgary Hypnotist
While there may be several well trained hypnotists in Calgary and beyond, the term “Certified Hypnotist” does not necessarily mean you are working with the best hypnotist, Gruber frankly warned. You may be talking to a professional who has received excellent training and had years of experience. On the other hand it could just as easily be someone who has taken a one weekend course on how to hypnotize someone and opened up their doors to the public the following week.
That, Gruber revealed, is because there are no national standards as to who may call themselves a Certified Hypnotist. Caution is needed beyond just the use of the title though, he added.
Some hypnotists will offer so called guarantees. As a consumer, I would look carefully into the details of what such a guarantee actually offered, he continued. When it comes to human behavior, no one can control some one else. That is why you do not find doctors or psychologists offering guarantees. Why would you expect a hypnotist, however good, to be able to control someone else's behavior and hence guarantee the outcome of working with them?
Free Consumer Help for Calgary
It was concerns such as these that prompted Gruber to write the Consumer Guide to Choosing a Hypnotist. The guide provides over 12 key questions that anyone thinking of working with a hypnotist needs to ask before they commit to any individual.

Hypnosis is a very powerful tool to promote personal change and improve health, be it weight loss, stopping smoking or managing stress says Gruber. However, it is so important to be working with a well trained professional to be successful, he emphasized. After all, it is your time and hard earned money that is at stake!
