'The Hypnoband System has been life-changing for me. I found the hypnotherapy sessions very relaxing and I feel so positive about things now, compared to the past when I was constantly yo-yo dieting and going to diet classes without much success. I still enjoy all my favourite foods, but in smaller portions and I never feel deprived at all.' Testimonial from Rae
The HYPNO-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.
Here are some questions you might have about the Hypnoband System, which is suitable for clients with a Body Mass Index (BMI) or 30 or over - you can check this on the calculator below:-
Does it involve surgery?
No! the HYPNO-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. The HYPNO-BAND procedure is extremely relaxing and pleasurable.
Are there side effects?
No. There are no side effects associated with undergoing this procedure.
So it's safe?
Yes! the HYPNO-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-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.
Will it work for me?
The key to success is YOU! No weight loss system will work unless you are committed to losing weight. You must be prepared to change your eating habits and life-style. If you are totally serious about losing weight then it will certainly work for you. The HYPNO-BAND system provides you with the tools and ability to lose weight and maintain a healthier body.
Is it guaranteed?
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-BAND 'Virtual Gastric Band' system you will have the tools and power to change your eating habits. The only way to lose significant amounts of weight is to eat less! The HYPNO-BAND system helps you to change behaviour and life-style which in turn provides you with the ability to lose weight and stay that way!
The HYPNO-BAND Weight Loss System is extremely cost effective when compared to other methods. Whilst Gastric Band surgery can cost many thousands of pounds and even belonging to slimming clubs adds up after a time, HYPNO-BAND saves you money not only as a way to lose weight but in your weekly food bills! By using our system you will eat smaller portions and eat less often cutting your food bills in the process!
So, how much is the HYPNO-BAND system?
The total cost for the Hypnoband Sessions is £295, which includes all back-up CD's, so you can be assured that there are no hidden extras.
What do you get for your money?
The HYPNO-BAND system comprises a series of four sessions, lasting roughly an hour and a half, 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-BAND and we will begin the process of having the virtual gastric band fitted. In subsequent sessions the HYPNO-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:-
