approach to weight loss
The Hypno-Band™ is the world leader in Gastric Band Hypnosis.
The Hypno-Band™ technique is safe, risk free, affordable and offers a real alternative to gastric band surgery. We are currently the only licensed practitioners of the Hypno-Band™ system in this area. There are few practitioners locally and this is because the founder of the system wishes to ensure that only the highest qualified, ethical hypnotherapists are able to offer the technique. You can be confident of our methods.
The Hypno-Band™ is suitable for clients who have tried everything else to lose weight and nothing seems to work, or they have become disillusioned with yo-yo dieting, having realised that in the main, this does not work. It is suitable for clients with a BMI of 30 or above (although clients with a BMI of 25-29 will be considered on an individual basis). The Hypno-Band™ is the original gastric band system and we will work with you using a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and hypnotherapy, to help you to lose weight. The Hypno-Band™ method has a success rate of 70-80% and many clients find this approach completely life changing as it allows them to gain control over their eating and many clients begin to lose weight after the initial session.
Commonly asked questions
What is the Hypno-Band weight loss system?
The Hypno-Band System is a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and hypnotherapy techniques that helps you explore, analyse and change your eating habits. Then, using the mind/body connection we fit a "virtual gastric band" to your stomach, helping you to eat less and less often.
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.
Does it hurt?
On the contrary. It is an extremely relaxing and pleasurable experience which will leave you feeling relaxed and motivated to lose weight.
Are there side effects?
No. There are no known side effects associated with undergoing this procedure. It is completely safe.
Am I suitable?
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 (such as having an eating disorder, for example), or if you are taking certain medications. Your suitability will be fully assessed at the initial session and before any hypnosis takes place.
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 lifestyle. If you are totally serious about losing weight then it will certainly work for you. This system provides you with the tools and ability to lose weight and maintain a healthier body.
How much does it cost? And what do you get for your money?
The Hypno-Band system comprises a series of four sessions, each lasting around an hour (although the first session will take slightly longer as we will be taking a full medical history from you before commencing with any treatment), plus CD recordings which you use for reinforcement. Also in the first session you will be introduced to hypnosis and experience the fantastic feelings of relaxation and calmness, which result from being hypnotised. We will also begin your journey to losing weight. 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 to back up and reinforce the work you have done.
The Hypno-Band system costs £400 for all four sessions, and includes all additional materials, CDs and ongoing support by telephone or email for the duration of your treatment.
