Gastric Band Hypnosis
In addition to traditional weight loss hypnosis we are also pleased to offer the revolutionary Hypno-band©. This unique system uses a combination of Hypnosis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Mindfulness to help you to change the way in which you eat. The Hypno-Band can only be offered by licensed practitioners and fully qualified hypnotherapists.
Gastric Band Hypnotherapy is safe and uses natural methods to help you change your eating patterns This means it can be a great alternative to drastic and risky surgery. During your sessions you will be taught how to pay attention to your body so that you can understand when you are hungry and when you are full. If you eat emotionally then during your therapy we will work with you to help identify the triggers behind this eating so that we can teach you methods to challenge your old behaviour. *
How does the Virtual Gastric Band Work?
At your first session your Hypno-Band Practitioner will take a full assessment. They will ask questions about your current eating patterns and your medical history. You will also be asked questions about whether you suffer from anxiety, depression or have had any incidents in the past which could have impacted your emotional well-being. This allows you therapist to have a complete background on your situation before commencing the first session of hypnosis. During your first hypnotherapy session you will be given hypnotic suggestions for weight loss and following that session you will receive an mp3 to listen to at home.
In your second and third sessions the Gastric Band Hypnotherapy process involves your hypnotherapist working with you to determine if there are any emotional reasons impacting the way in which you eat. If any are discovered the therapy works with you to help challenge old thought patterns and behaviours and where possible to alter your beliefs under hypnosis. We will also use standard suggestion hypnosis to suggest that you have a smaller stomach, that you are going to feel full more quickly and eat smaller portions of food.*
We also conduct a virtual surgery session usually around session four to suggest to your subconscious that you have had a gastric band fitted. Very often people eat for a deep rooted emotional reason. This may be because they are sad, bored or lonely or alternatively because they have always associated food with love, praise and good feelings. So before any virtual surgery takes place it is necessary to determine what the emotional root for your eating is and then retrain your subconscious to eat in a different fashion. This is the reason why the Hypno-Band can succeed where so many other diets fail.*
Free Gastric Hypnotic Band Consultations
All potential clients are offered a free telephone consultation before booking for the Hypno-Band London procedure. This enables you to ask questions about the Gastric Band Hypnotherapy so that you are comfortable with the procedure. We will also ask you medical questions to assess your suitability and make sure that you are aware that a certain level of input is required from yourself as well in order to make the treatment successful?
Who is suitable for the Hypno-Band?
The Gastric Hypnotic Band is designed for people who have a BMI of over 25 and who are committed to losing weight. All clients are assessed before commencing with the Virtual Gastric Band procedure. Generally if you are over-weight and committed to losing weight and changing your life style then you would be considered suitable. This program is not suitable for people who have a physiological reason for their weight gain or who have thyroid problems which are not stabilised.
Will the Virtual Gastric Band work for me?
The Hypnotic Gastric Band is a treatment that requires input from the therapist as well as the client. No weight loss system will ever work for a person who is not prepared to change their diet and lifestyle habits. The Gastric Band hypnosis sessions will look at your current eating patterns and exercise regime and between sessions you will be given tasks or homework to do. These tasks must be completed for the process to work. The Hypno-Band system will give you the tools to maintain a healthier lifestyle but you must be serious about losing weight and following the program.

Will I be Controlled by the Hypnotherapist?
No hypnotherapist is able to make anyone do anything that they do not want to do or which would be considered out of character. In fact you are the person who is in control at all times.
Is there a Hypno-Band Guarantee?
No form of medical procedure or therapy can offer a guarantee. Even surgeons who conduct the real Gastric Band surgery are aware that there is a considerable failure rate. The key to success with the Virtual Gastric Band is you. If you do not put in 100% commitment and continue to eat badly and not exercise then it will not work. You only lose significant amounts of food by eating less, eating healthier and exercising. The Hypno-Band sessions give you the tools to change your behaviour and lifestyle but you must be prepared to implement them.
Does the Virtual Gastric Band involve surgery?
No! The Hypno-Band system is a non-invasive behavior changing method using the techniques of Hypnotherapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
Will the Hypno-Band hurt?
No the Gastric Hypnotic Band procedure is relaxing, safe and comfortable.
Does Gastric Band Hypnosis create side effects?
No there will be no side effects associated with undergoing the Hypno-Band procedure.
How long does the Virtual Gastric Band procedure take?
The entire Hypno-Band process will take place over five one hour sessions. The five sessions take place over a period of 4 to 6 weeks however there is flexibility in the treatment program. We ask all our clients to finish their treatment within 10 weeks of commencing the treatment. Additional sessions may be needed before the Hypno-Band procedure begins if there are other significant issues which need to be addressed first.
What do you get in the Hypno-Band Program?
The Hypno Gastric Band procedure consists of five one hour sessions plus audio’s which you use for reinforcement between sessions. The therapist will take a dietary and medical history as well as a general assessment during the first session. During the first session you will be introduced to hypnosis which is a calm and relaxing experience.
In the second and third session you will be introduced to your virtual surgeon and anaesthetist under hypnosis and by the fourth session we normally fit the band. If in depth analytical work needs to be completed this is likely to take place between the second and third sessions. The fifth session is used to reinforce the suggestions and to check the Hypno-Band system progress.*
