The Gastric Hypno-Band weight loss system has been shown to be incredibly effective at helping people who have failed to get ordinary weight loss systems and diets to work for them.

HOWEVER, Gastric  Hypno-Band Treatment is NOT a miracle cure, the people who succeed using this system are those who are DETERMINED to lose the weight and recognise that they MUST take responsibility.

Your  Gastric Hypno-Band weight loss treatment (one hour) weekly sessions will address many facets of your eating habits and together, we will help you to make PERMANENT changes to those habits so that you can finally achieve that slim body you’ve always dreamed of!

Initial Consultation

The Initial consultation is all about assessing your suitabiliity for the Gastric Hypno-band programme.  Rita is very experienced in helping people lose weight and will know by your current lifestyle, your present situation (work and personal), your personality type and your general thinking whether she believes the Gastric Hypnoband will be successful for you.  Other weight loss programmes may be discussed as well.  YOU losing weight and believing that you can lose weight and keeping it off is the key to YOU being successful and some of us may need some additional  ‘beliefs work to ensure that success.

We will also look at  your current weight, your target weight, what your emotional “triggers” are and how you respond to those triggers.

We will be looking at your current and prior medical conditions to ensure that we take full account of these within the programme.

By the time we have gone through this detailed intake Session you will already be thinking differently about the WAY that you eat and your relationship with food! You will definitely be feeling very motivated and positive by the end of the consultation and more importantly you will be feeling more in control then you have felt for a very long time.  Actually doing something instead of doing nothing is incredibly powerful on its own!

Treatment Session Two - “Hypnosis”

After your weigh in we will take a look at your food diaries and have a recap on your previous week. Look at any other unhelpful beliefs you have regarding portion size, snacking, sweet/savoury preferences to get a good understanding of YOUR personal relationship with food.  You  will then experience your first wonderfully relaxing Hypnosis Session during which we will give you some post-hypnotic suggestions for your new responses to snacking, portion size, eating too quickly etc! You will be visualising yourself at your target weight using your “Slimming Mirror” and you will also begin to feel your stomach beginning to shrink down in size!!

During the next week you can expect to feel quite different about your food and about your own personal control over food which is reinforced by CD one which we provide at this point.

Treatment Session Three - “Preparation For Surgery”

After your weigh in we will take a look at your food diaries and have a recap on your previous week. You will be  shown an animated version of how a Real Gastric Band is fitted under Surgical conditions, and we will prepare you for the Surgical Session at treatment session FOUR. You will be shown a picture of a leading gastric band surgeon which again will help reinforce suggestions that you are having surgery.

You will have another wonderfully relaxing session of Hypnosis where you will visualise “meeting  the surgeon and the anaesthetist”.  You will be advised not to eat or drink 12 hours before surgery.

Treatment Session Four - “Surgery Session”

Again, we measure your progress so far (by now you can reasonably expect to have lost between 5 and 10 lbs. (Research on Hypno-Band clients shows a National average weight loss of 3 lbs per week.) Once again we will examine how much your thinking has changed. Thinking and behaving differently to food is now starting to become your NEW HABIT and before long your new relationship with food will be “automatic”.

Its now time for your Surgery Hypnosis - Whilst under Hypnosis you will hear the sounds of the Hospital as well as the Surgery Team as they perform your Keyhole surgery to fit your Gastric Band and adjustment port.

Many people report being able to “feel” their stomach getting smaller and tighter during this session!

Your work-pack contains your Post Operative Diet sheets which tell you, in detail, the way to adapt your eating to your new Virtual Gastric Band. You will be given your second CD which should be played once a day for 7 days for maximum results.

Treatment Session Five - “Band Adjustment”

Session Five is held at least TWO weeks after the Surgery Treatment Session so that you have a chance to become used to your new “habitual eating style”.

At this stage you should have lost quite a significant amount of weight and your clothes should be getting looser!

Based on your experience of the last few weeks you may opt to either have your Virtual Gastric Band tightened or possible loosened if you are losing weight too quickly.

This is the last time you will see us for your Hypno-Band Treatment Sessions, but we hope that you decide to keep in touch with us and let us know when you achieve your Target Weight.

By following the Hypno-Band System with me here in Harlow, Essex you will also benefit from simultaneously following the Amazing Rob Kelly Thrive Programme.

Weight Loss Hypnotherapy Sessions

Outline of what happens during each session of the  Gastric Hypno-Band weight Loss system

Treatment Session one - “Retraining  your Mind”

Session ONE really gets you to understand  details of your “habitual eating” -We look at how YOUR mind works (Using the Thrive Programme) and how you process information and understand why YOU have put weight on. We take a look and re-educate your thinking on a conscious level and help you to understand how your beliefs have become distorted over the years which in turn have formed bad habits of thinking.  We look at how powerful your imagination and subconscious mind is and why powerful  suggestions from advertising and the media are taking over your mind which explains  why “diets” don’t work.  We spend time on how your thoughts affect your emotions and finally address what is triggering you and how to get you back in control.  Then we look at how your Subconscious mind will accept that you are having a virtual gastric band so that it makes perfect sense to you. A folder and food diaries will be given at this stage of the programme.
