What is The Hypno Gastric Band system
The Hypno Gastric Band is a powerful technique that uses the power of your mind to fit a "virtual gastric or lap band" to your stomach. As the band restricts the volume of food that the stomach can hold, this results in a decrease of appetite and food consumption.
The Hypno Gastric Band system uses a combination of techniques, starting with identifying and analysing WHEN and WHY you're eating for reasons other than physical hunger. Most important of all, this helps you to CHANGE those negative thoughts and eating habits and replace them with positive habits which move you away from the old familiar 'yo-yo dieting'. Then, in hypnosis, you are given the powerful suggestion that you have been fitted with a "virtual gastric band" and that your stomach is now the size of a golf ball. This helps you to eat less food, and less often, but always in the right amount you need for health and wellness.
Does it involve surgery?
No! the Hypno Gastric Band system is a non-invasive behaviour-changing method using the techniques of hypnotherapy and cognitive behavioural therapy - in other words, looking at how the mind works and using the power of your mind to bring about change.
Does it hurt?
On the contrary. Hypno Gastric Band procedure is extremely relaxing and pleasurable.
Are there side effects?

So it's safe?
Yes! the Hypno Gastric Band system is perfectly safe.
Will I be under the hypnotherapists control?
Never. No hypnotherapist can make you do anything you do not want to do nor make you behave in a way you would not normally behave.
Am I suitable for the Hypno Gastric Band weight loss system?
If you are over-weight and really want and are committed to losing weight then you should be suitable. The only exception would be if there is a physiological reason for your weight problems or if you are taking certain medications. Your suitability will be assessed prior to booking an appointment.

If you are totally serious about losing weight then it will certainly work for you. The Hypno Gastric Band system provides you with the tools and ability to lose weight and maintain a healthier body.

Like any medical or therapy procedure there can be no definite guarantees. Even a surgeon cannot guarantee that an actual gastric band will work. It should be noted that it is YOU that holds the key to losing weight - with the full support of the Hypnotherapist. No system will work if you are not 100% committed. The mind is a very powerful instrument and by using the Hypno Gastric Band 'Virtual Gastric Band' system you will have the tools and power to change your eating habits.

What does the Hypno Gastric Band System consit of?
What do you get for your money?
The Hypno Gastric Band system comprises a series of four sessions, lasting roughly an hour, plus CD or mp3 recordings which you use for reinforcement. A full dietry and medical history will be taken and an initial assessment done during the first session. Also in the first session you will be introduced to hypnosis and experience the fantastic feelings of relaxation and calmness which results from being hypnotized. We will also begin your journey to losing weight, with sessions tailored to your individual issues, and not a 'one size fits all' approach.
In the second session you will encounter the Hypno Gastric Band system and we will begin the process of having the virtual gastric band fitted. In subsequent sessions the Hypno Gastric Band virtual gastric band will be fitted and adjusted.
In later sessions the process will be reinforced and you will learn a different way of eating. Following the sessions you should use your CD or MP3 to back-up and reinforce the work you have done.
As well as Hypnotherapy, I also use NLP or Neuro-Linguistic Programming - this might sound complicated, but basically, NLP techniques can help you to THINK differently about your problem or situation, so that you can FEEL and ACT differently. Using this cognitive approach can also help to resolve any anxiety problems, if you feel that anxiety and stress contribute to your overeating. Think how much better you would feel if you could live the life you want, instead of being held back by your anxieties, fears and unwanted habits.
Many people get a false impression about hypnotherapy, often from seeing stage hypnosis or on television, but these are some of the facts about hypnosis when it is used for therapeutic purposes:-
While under hypnosis, you cannot be made to do anything against your will
You do not lose control to the Hypnotherapist - opening your eyes will end the hypnotic state at any time
You will never get 'stuck' in a hypnotic state - if a fire alarm were to go off, you would be out of the room instantly!
You will be deeply relaxed but will remain aware of everything that is happening at all times
