Weight Loss / Food addiction

Weight Loss and Virtual Gastric band

I run an extremely successful weight management clinic which uses the combined tools of the Virtual Gastric band technique (if appropriate to you) as well as my highly successful weight management programme. I have discovered that using these techniques together creates powerful and long lasting change in relation to how my clients look at food, nutrition, exercise and their eating habits.

My weight management system  is a comprehensive system that creates powerful and long lasting change. The programme includes food aversions to ‘problem foods’ so that they no longer prominently feature in my clients lifestyle. Some people have food addictions – they just can’t get enough chocolate, cakes, bread etc. I can help eradicate the cravings by using the super effective NLP Aversion Therapy and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)

My overall aim for working with weight control is to enable you to develop new and long lasting positive eating habits and break free from the binge/ diet cycle that many people find themselves in. Food is to be enjoyed in moderation and regular eating habits developed so that days are not regarded as ‘bad’ or ‘good’.

The idea behind the Virtual Gastric band it is that through hypnotherapy, the body reacts as though it has had a gastric band fitted resulting in a reduced appetite and interest in food. Sessions are held weekly on the basis that it takes 28 days to change a habit with a follow on appointment a month later.

This allows the individual to feel more in control of their food intake and therefore lose weight more easily. It is also a great way to get into ‘The Zone’ that most people need to in order to maintain the right mental state for long-term weigh loss.

I don’t use the The Virtual Gastric Band technique alone as I have found it is much more effective when integrated into a weight loss /weight management programme using other therapeutic techniques.

I have been personally trained by Sheila Granger who is the UK leader and creator of The Virtual Gastric band system. This is the only system in the UK to be taken to NHS Clinical trials due to the extremely high success rate in pre-trials! http://www.sheilagranger.com/

The programme consists of a 5 appointments. My weight management sessions are booked weekly and a support CD is provided from the offset. Follow on support is then offered on an ongoing and as needed basis.

If we use the Gastric Band as part of your plan, I also record your actual ‘operation’ and this is provided at the final session to enable you to ‘top up’ your own band as needed. This recording is personalised to you and the feedback from having the actual ‘operation’ recorded has been overwhelmingly positive since I have trialed this approach.

The Virtual Gastric Band is typically used with people with a BMI of over 25 or who struggle to feel that ‘full feeling’.
