On the morning I woke up to see a hypnotherapist for the first time, I went to the gym for an agonizing 25 whole minutes and carefully avoided indulging in any caffeinated beverages, as instructed.
But before I get into all that, let’s rewind.
I decided to book my session because I’ve always had a problem with exercise and body image. I’ve looked at exercise as torture for the last 20 years, dreading it every morning and alternating between years of regular workouts and months (OK, also years) of no physical activity whatsoever.
Here's the true story of how I found myself in a hypnotherapist's office in an effort to tackle these issues and how it ended up changing my life forever.
