What is Gastric Band Hypnotherapy?
Making the decision to have Gastric Band surgery is a big decision and not one to be taken lightly, especially as this kind of surgery is not without its risks and sometimes comes with side affects and complications. In fact Gastric Band surgery is often a last-case resort.
Luckily, this is where Gastric Band Hypnotherapy comes in.
Gastric band hypnotherapy or having a ‘virtual gastric band’ fitted does not require any form of surgery, has no side effects and is completely safe.
In short, it is a technique used in hypnotherapy to make the unconscious mind to believe it has had a gastric band fitted. The aim is that on a subconscious level, you will accept that you have had the procedure and that your stomach has reduced in size accordingly.
How it works:
Firstly, the most important aspect of all this is to try to find the root cause of the issue. That’s why we address any unhealthy thought patterns around eating, and this will be done in a safe and compassionate environment, with absolutely no judgement from me. But it’s an invaluable first step in making sure the Gastric Band Hypnotherapy is successful for you.
Next, in a relaxed, calm and safe approach where nothing is ever done against your will, I will carry out the virtual gastric band treatment. The idea behind this is to convince you at a subconscious level that you have had an operation to insert a gastric band. That way, your body responds to this suggestion by making you feel fuller quicker, as if you really have had the surgery.
It’s a powerful technique and can have amazing life-long results.
Your Virtual Gastric Band Treatment:
The process of embedding a Virtual Gastric Band goes roughly as follows, although of course it can vary from person to person, depending on your own unique needs. I always try to treat the individual rather than fit a one ‘treatment fits all’ approach.
Initial Consultation – this is a FREE of charge no-obligation consultation that lasts approximately 20 minutes long. I offer this for two reasons. Firstly so you can find out more information about the procedure and secondly to make sure I feel you are able to accept the hypnosis comfortably, and be are committed to the aftercare guidelines. This ensures that people who do invest in the procedure are most likely to get long-lasting results.
The following 2 steps take place on the same day during one session and lasts about 3.5 hours in total.
Once you arrive at The Therapy Cabin and we set up a safe, comfortable and relaxed environment, I will begin by asking you some questions about you and your relationship with food. This is an important part of the process as we need to address your unhealthy eating patterns and release any limiting beliefs you might have around food. If we skip this step, this might affect the eventual outcome of the procedure.
After we have looked at your relationship with food, I then move into the actual procedure of fitting the gastric band. I start with introducing the idea that you can be full on just a small amount of food, and we then we go onto “fit” the gastric band. Unlike real surgery, the virtual gastric band does not have any physical side effects and you will be aware of what is happening and in control at all times. In fact, as The Therapy Cabin offers such a calm, serene environment, the procedure should be a pleasantly relaxing experience, which many people actually find quite soothing.
After the gastric band has been fitted and your weight drops to the level where you ideally want it to be, you can then book a follow up session to have your Virtual Gastric Band adjusted. We can either reset it so you can eat a little more or to eat a little less or just to keep your ideal weight. This session usually lasts 45min-1 hour.
PLUS this includes

The Secret To A Successful Virtual Gastric Band
After your session, you will notice that your appetite has been curbed. This is because when your subconscious believes you have had a gastric band fitted, it will believe your stomach is smaller. This in turn makes your brain send out messages that you are full after consuming less food.
You are most likely to get positive results from Gastric Band Hypnotherapy if you trust in the process and in my ability to help you. This is why I offer the free, no-obligation consultation so we can set up rapport before your session as this element of trust is essential. During the session I also do my best to make sure you are comfortable, at ease and feel safe.
In terms of how it will work in the long term, the good news is that hypnotherapy can be really useful when it comes to helping people change their unhealthy eating habits, even if they have been ingrained for years and years. But just like any other weight loss system, it’s not some magical miracle cure that requires no effort on your behalf – a virtual gastric band can do wonders but it also requires your total commitment to be 100% successful.
That’s why Gastric Band Hypnosis should be part of a weight management plan that includes both nutrition and exercises because when you are able to change habits in both body and mind, you will experience the best results. If you are willing, I can recommend a nutritionist to further support your weight loss as this would support your body with the right types of food to aid weight loss and increase your overall wellness.
Finally, if you are committed to making a change in your eating habits, you believe in the process and you trust my ability to help you, then Gastric Band Hypnosis should work for you.
