What is gastric band hypnosis
This doesn’t happen for real, only in your subconscious mind. Your mind then believes you have a gastric band fitted where you visualize your new stomach as the size of a golf ball.
This means that you eat slower and far less, as you mentally feel much fuller much quicker. Your appetite is drastically reduced and weight loss is far more natural because of the gastric band hypnosis sessions.
It’s a safe and a highly effective method of weight loss and shown throughout clinical trials worldwide and is commonly referred to as the hypnoband.
Is gastric band hypnosis safe?
Gastric band hypnotic therapy is 100% safe. Your experienced hypnotherapist will only work with you to help you convince yourself that the decision to reduce food consumption, food types and change diet is a perfectly normal one. The only focal point of the therapy is to help the patient lose weight, reduce the size of their stomach and to increase self-confidence and feel far more positive about themselves.
What are the advantages of gastric band hypnotherapy over surgery?
The main advantage of gastric band hypnotherapy is that it allows a far more natural weight loss occurrence to take place. One thing all experts agree on is that drastic shifts in weight loss or weight gain are not good for the body and quite often with gastric band surgery, there is drastic weight loss. This puts unnecessary strain on the bodies heart and other major organs.
Other things to consider are:
- The substantial savings in the cost of the surgery, which can be upwards of £7,000
- No invasive surgery and associated recovery time
- No potential surgery complications
- Gastric band hypnosis helps train the mind about food, so manageable portions, reduction in fatty food consumption and sweet food consumption
- Promotes a healthy more positive and optimistic future
What is involved in gastric band hypnosis?
Gastric band hypnosis is a session based therapy, you wouldn’t expect to be “cured” in a single session. We envisage 4-5 sessions have the best effect over a period. Remember most behavioural patterns, of which overeating and bad-diet are both, need to be “rained” out of our system. Gastric band hypnosis works with your subconscious mind to retrain underlying behavioural habits.
One thing you should consider is that whilst we average 4-5 sessions, each individual is different and the depth of therapy needed will vary.
Once your hypnotherapist has assessed the issues and needs of the patient, and they have agreed to move forward with the treatment, a full case history is created for records purposes.
Gastric band hypnotherapy also requires supporting activity and you would expect to be provided with either an MP3 or Cd that you can play to reinforce the subliminal suggestion.
Who can gastric band hypnotherapy help?
Again, gastric band hypnotherapy is judged on a case by case basis, at my practice my clients typically are looking to lose 3 or more stone in weight (around 20 kg). However, a good hypnotherapist will judge each case based on a very in-depth assessment for suitability.
How much does it cost and how long is treatment?
Gastric band hypnotherapy typically consists of 5-7 sessions over a 5 to 9 week, period and average costs are around £1000 – £1400. This is still significant saving over gastric band surgery.

Are you next for your Covid jab? Celebrity hypnotherapist reveals a 90% surge in calls to tackle needle phobia & reveals his best tips to tackle the problem
The Government’s mass vaccination programme against Covid-19 is continuing at pace.
However, while headlines about the jabs have been dominated by safety concerns, for many it is a fear of needles that is causing anxiety and extreme levels of upset.
The rollout has now moved on to the over-45s age group and those in their 30s are expected to be vaccinated in the coming months.
As it stands, there is no alternative to the needle. All Covid-19 vaccines have to be given via injection.
For many this has proved a turning point in wanting to confront their needle phobia. Hypnotherapist Aaron Surtees said he has seen a staggering 90% surge in calls asking for help to eliminate the problem following the start of the vaccination programme. The majority are young professionals who have had the problem since childhood.
He said: ‘’Before the Government announcement about Covid jabs it was not unusual for a year or a couple of years to pass before I would get a phone call asking for help to tackle needle phobia.
‘’In the last 3 months, since the vaccine rollout started, I have had at least one phone call a week.
‘’It has been an equal mix of males and females and they are in the 30s to 50s age group. A lot of them have had the problem for life but have been forced to confront their fears because of the vaccine.’’READ MORE
