Gastric Band Hypnotherapy
Hypno-Band Licensed Practitioner
However, a new way of losing weight has come into play in the weight loss area. The principle of gastric band hypnotherapy is not new and has been in use for some time. John Maclean, at Newwave felt that an integrated system utilising current weight loss theory , and a different approach to virtual gastric band surgery was required. It is a system for those clients who fall into the obese range, which are clients with body mass index BMI of 30 or more.
Hypno-Band is a combination of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, visualisation and suggestion therapy which help you change your eating habits, by having smaller portions and feeling fuller, eating healthy foods, and cutting out snacking in between meals. When you have the gastric band fitted, it creates a state of mind where you believe that you have had a gastric band fitted, your stomach feels smaller and does not need as much food.
The Gastric Band Hypnotherapy Programme has had a lot of good Press and Television reports. GMTV Breakfast Show with Lorraine Kelly, The Daily Mail, and Telegraph, and many others.
For some people, The Gastric Band Weight Loss Programme may not be appropriate – for example, those clients who have an under or over active thyroid, and whose condition has not been stabilised by medication. If it has been stabilised there is no problem. Clients who are bulimic, or clients who have a genetic or physiological reason for their weight gain should be excluded. If this is you you will probably want to go to my hypnotherapy for weight loss page.
Gastric Band Hypnotherapy – So what happens:
In the first session, we explain the Gastric Band Hypnotherapy Weight Loss System to you, and discuss if it is suitable for you. We take you through a questionnaire, which enables me to discover the reasons why you over eat. You can then move on and begin to empower yourself to change your eating behaviours. It is important that you are committed to making changes in order for it to be successful.
We also go into the reasons for overeating, whether its psychological, (eating to deal with stress, or find comfort,) eating the wrong foods, or snacking in between meals, so that we can help you change –in this session we also work with any other negative eating patterns A medical history is taken, and you are asked what medications you take.
You then relax into hypnosis for an hour, starting those important positive changes, and we work on your eating habits. This is put on a CD which you take home to listen to re-enforce what we have achieved.
This first session usually lasts for two hours.
Over the next four sessions we start the Gastric Band Hypnotherapy weight loss system, properly. we identify and work on your eating behaviours and help you make the changes you need to make to lose weight. you will meet your surgeon and anaesthetist (in hypnosis), and you will have the gastric band fitted. By using the Virtual Gastric Band you will find that you can eat less and your stomach will feel smaller. We also take you through the process of having a gastric band fitted.
Although we have a good success rate of approximately 70% there can be no guarantee. However, if you are committed to the programme you can succeed.
