Program offers new approach to weight loss and lifestyle change

A NEW eight-week program run by Emerge Health and Wellness is taking a unique approach to helping people lose weight and gain control of their lives.

Run by Vicki Allan – a clinical hypnotherapist and neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) practitioner – the group weight loss and lifestyle program combines a dietician-designed eating plan with recipes, hypnotherapy, health and wellness coaching and small group personal training.

With her vast experience in this area, Ms Allan said she was able to offer something “very different” to help people achieve their health and wellness goals.

She said she had always been passionate about helping people live their happiest, most joyful life.

“I believe in walking the path of wellness with the client,” she said.

“There are no fad diets in this program, as we know that these do not work in the long term.

“Getting to the real issue is important – if it were just about eating the right foods and exercising, we would not have the obesity and chronic disease epidemic that we now face.

“The key is offering people the chance to get to the bottom of the issue and then changing those behaviours once and for all.”

The program will include a one-on-one session with a health professional, group sessions covering hypnotherapy, coaching and NLP, an MP3 player with recordings to take home, a Portion Perfection Healthy Eating Plan, small group personal training sessions, group nutritional information sessions, personal journal and discounts on private hypnotherapy.

Ms Allan has 40-years’ experience as a nurse, 30-years’ experience as a personal trainer and several years’ experience as a health and wellness coach.

“Now working as a clinical hypnotherapist and NLP master practitioner, I am also available to assist people with recovery from phobias, trauma, depression and anxiety,” Ms Allan said.

“Hypnotherapy has been proven as an effective treatment for chronic pain management, weight loss and to quit smoking.”

Emerge Health and Wellness is located at Level 1, Suite 9, 2 Bayfield Street, Bellerive.
