That’s me before and after hypnosis to lose weight. I choose to write this article for UAE Hypnosis to inspire others out there looking to improve their physical and mental health. With hypnosis yes, I lost weight. I also become a healthier person, better mom and more active part of my community. And It all started with wanting to lose weight quickly. I wanted to look good at the beach for the upcoming holiday season. 16 months ago I gave birth to my beautiful baby girl that left me with some unwanted kilos lingering about. My arms, face and stomach were a little more pudgy than I wanted. After 4 hypnotherapy sessions at UAE Hypnosis not only did I lose some weight, but I began to see the world so differently. Today life is a touch more magical. Besides losing 5 kilos in a month, I have a healthier body image, I gained energy and feel inspired to live life more fully. I guess you can say I feel capable of anything.
Losing weight is a combination of physical, mental and spiritual practice.
Today most people recognize that diet and exercise play an important role in an individual’s ability to lose weight fast. However, there is a lot of misinformation about why people are overweight. Most people believe that being overweight has everything to do with the calories being consumed and burned. Although diet and exercise are incredibly important they alone are not the answer. Luckily, there are a few wise souls out there who have figured out the secret to weight loss. What’s the secret? Losing weight is a combination of physical, mental and spiritual practice. This is what I learned from my weight loss expert Adrian Rusin.
I heard about the popular hypnotherapy clinic in Dubai from an interview with the center’s owner on CCTV. He was talking about hypnotherapy and the success rate for those looking to quit smoking. I wondered if hypnosis could help with weight loss. So I called the center and set up a free consultation.
But here’s the kicker, as much as I wanted to slim down, I also had to face the fact that I had a demanding life. Time was of the essence. I did not have a lot of hours to travel back and forth to a clinic building, my office, deal with parking and traffic and be home for my baby and husband.
So this is my experience
I decided to go through with the free consultation. I drove to the clinic in Dubai and was greeted by a tall European man with a deep gentle voice and kind eyes. Adrian shook my hand and I immediately felt a new energy. I was surprised and intrigued to say the least. The room was well lit and I had a beautiful view of the city. The room had a slight smell of lavender and peppermint and the walls were framed with images of peaceful getaways. I was invited to sit in a comfortable recliner and tell Adrian about myself and why I was seeking help with hypnosis. After about an hour of conversation, I learned how hypnosis works. Adrian explained the science of hypnosis, self-hypnosis and how the mind body connection works. I asked all my questions like, can I get stuck in hypnosis? Or, will I quack like a chicken? Or, will I tell you things I don’t want to reveal? The answer to all of those questions by the way is, no. Unfortunately, Hollywood has glamorized the hypnosis industry into being mystical and manipulating. In reality hypnosis is extremely therapeutic and healing. Along the lines of meditation, yoga, and mindfulness. Hypnotherapy allows people to connect to their higher self, find answers to lifelong questions and gain motivation, energy and vitality for life.

After our discussion, Adrian gave me short hypnosis session for free so I could experience what it felt like. Feeling relaxed and at ease, I was convinced I needed to have hypnosis sessions not only to lose weight, but to calm my anxiety and stress as well.
However, I had only one issue. I could not get to the clinic office before closing hours due to the demands of my job. The next day I called Adrian and asked him if there was an alternative way to work with him. Perhaps he could extend his office hours or he could do a house call? He suggested we work on Skype from home. I was skeptical to say the least, but I trusted him and wanted to see if it would work, so I gave it a try.
I had the nanny care for the baby and my husband left for the gym. I went into our guest room and set up my laptop on the night stand next to our big comfortable chair. I signed into Skype and Adrian rang me. We chatted for a few minutes and I immediately felt the connection I had with him in the clinic office. He explained to me that our energy field breaks the boundaries of time and space and that there really is no magic to him being in the same room. In fact he conducts healing sessions worldwide not just for people in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

Snuggled into my chair I put my headphones on and listened to Adrian. He guided me into a peaceful hypnotic state, or what I like to call my “happy place.” From there he asked me a series of questions that helped me to understand why my weight was not coming off. There was a reason I was holding onto the weight that I wanted to release. I learned our bodies are a physical expression of what we hold deep inside of us. The beliefs and thoughts I held in my subconscious mind were creating the body I had. I needed to change my beliefs and thoughts to change the way my body looked. With Adrian’s help using hypnosis, NLP and coaching techniques I felt better and more inspired after only one 90 minute session.
I didn’t feel an out of body experience but I did feel an exceptional state of awareness.
I was hooked and I decided to continue. After only 4 sessions I lost weight and gained a new insight on life. The one thing that stood out the most was how in touch Adrian was. If I had a question during the day I was able to email him and he got back to me right away. If I needed some inspiration he was there. When you work with Adrian you work with someone who really cares about what he does. He is very passionate about helping people and teaching people what they are capable of.

Some things people might wonder is how long will it take to lose weight with hypnosis. I was able to lose 5 kilos in about a month. I did one 90 minute hypnosis session a week with Adrian. For me this seemed like a good steady pace for weight loss. Besides, Adrian explained that losing too much weight too fast can be unhealthy. Another thing people often ask me is what did hypnosis feel like? For me hypnosis was very relaxing. I didn’t feel an out of body experience but I did feel an exceptional state of awareness. I felt very connected to a source of energy that I don’t normally feel connected to during the day. My mind was able to relax enough were I was able to have those “aha” moments that you hear everyone talking about.
The night after a hypnosis session were the nights I slept the best. The mornings after my hypnosis sessions were the days I felt deeply inspired, creative and happy. People at work even noticed that I was a bit more cheerful. Because I started to relax my mind and release my anxieties even my baby slept better and was less fussy during the night. I can say without a doubt that hypnotherapy is something everyone should experience. It gives you a new outlook on life and brings back that childlike inspiration to go conquer your dreams with energy and confidence.

I learned that when you work with hypnosis you go to a part of the mind where issues take root. Once you are connected to this subconscious and superconscious part of you, you can easily let go of excess weight. People usually gain weight for reasons they are consciously unaware of. You see from a different perspective how the weight got there in the first place. You understand why you might eat late at night, or why you crave chocolate and burgers.
I learned to program my mind for healthy habits. I now regularly enjoy yoga, jogging and eating healthy. Before hypnosis I would always find excuses to avoid the gym and eat foods that were more comforting than nutritious.
Now that I have reached my weight loss goal. I’m curious to see what else I can achieve with hypnosis. It seems like the possibilities are endless and I’m excited to see where my mind will take me.
