Patrick MolloyThank you for visiting my site. I appreciate you taking the time and offer you a warm welcome. My name is Patrick Molloy, the Food Hypnotist.  Why the fancy title? Here’s why…. I absolutely love helping people to free themselves of habits, compulsions, limiting beliefs and low self-esteem and food has become a major source of such troubles in this day and age.

Here’s how it started. Whilst practising as a hypnotist and psychotherapist I have spent a lot of time working with people and helping them  with all sorts of issues. Weight loss, body-image issues, cravings and/or compulsive eating occupied a lot of my time. Yes, I got good results and felt satisfied I was doing good work. Deep down though, I found them puzzling.  Why didn’t they just eat healthily?  Why didn’t they believe in themselves?  I read every book I could find on the subject of food, diet, psychology and exercise.  I sought out advanced specialized training in hypnosis and cutting edge therapy techniques. Gradually the parts of the puzzle started to fit together.

I was fortunate that at around this time a number of people suffering with eating disorders sought help from me. I saw similar cycles of thinking and behaviour to those seen in the overweight population, but further complicated by body image issues and a high desire for control. I was struck by how tragic it was to see these lovely, talented young people having their lives blighted and health compromised in this way.

I resolved that I would do everything in my power to seek out the answers so that these people could receive the support, assistance and understanding necessary to find their way out of the maze. So that they can regain health, self respect and self acceptance.

Do I have all the answers? No. But I have developed some fantastically effective ways of helping people find their own answers.  I love what I do. It changes people’s lives and sometimes it even saves people’s lives.

Individual results may, of course, vary from person to person.
