Many aetiological factors can contribute to the development of refractory overweight or obesity. Hypnosis would seem to be an obvious and powerful tool in facilitating effective weight management and in preventing recidivistic weight regain. This presentation discusses the reasons for the disappointing results reported however in early trials using hypnosis for weight reduction, and describes the author’s clinical and research experience of using “state” dissociative hypnosis to reveal and resolve the childhood emotional factors which seemingly can become aetiological for subsequent adult obesity.
