Virtual Gastric Band
Virtual Gastric Band Hypnotherapy is a 100% safe, non-surgical, long-term solution to weight loss.
Pause for a moment and ask yourself this question, answering to yourself as honestly as possible …
Is it WHAT you eat … or WHY you eat, that is your challenge?
Is it just bad habits you’ve developed
Sometimes life’s experiences leave us carrying what we might call Excess Emotional Baggage and we turn to food to help us carry the load.
Whatever the reason there is a way forward for you to a slimmer, fitter, healthier future.
THE VIRTUAL GASTRIC BAND provides a great structure to support you in developing new habits, a new relationship with food.
THE RICHARDS PROCESS which you can learn about on the Excess Emotional Baggage page, allows you to identify your own excess emotional baggage and clear it from an empowered position, a powerful position, leaving you feeling light, free at ease and excited about your future. A wonderful starting point to develop a really healthy relationship with your food and health.
Virtual Gastric Band helps you to:
Your questions answered
To answer this question, I first have to explain what invasive gastric band surgery is.
Gastric Band surgery involves a surgeon surgically placing a silicon band around the top of your stomach. Naturally all of this takes place under general anaesthetic, and you will need to heal from the surgery. The surgery generally costs between $5,000 – $17,000 depending on your health insurance, surgeon of choice etc.
Virtual Gastric Band Hypnotherapy involves safely using hypnotherapy to convince your mind that you’ve had the surgery, thereby experiencing the same results, BUT:
- Without the invasive surgery
- Without the risks of going under general anaesthetic
- Without the complications associated with the gastric band, such as slippage, on-going food restrictions
- Without the risks and painful recovery time
- Without the expense.
We start with a relaxed interview where I decide whether you can be accepted into the program.
Virtual Gastric Band Hypnotherapy achieves powerful results for the majority of people, but it doesn’t work for everyone. The purpose of this interview is to decide whether I feel that Virtual Gastric Band Hypnotherapy is suitable for you. I will also only accept you into the program if I feel that you are fully committed to the program to achieve your weight loss.
During this interview I will ask you questions about your relationship with food, the issues you’ve had, your overall health etc. This is a friendly chat and I am completely non-judgemental about any information you share. I have struggled with weight issues myself so I am entirely empathetic.
During the interview you are able to ask me as many questions as you like. If I feel that you will achieve weight loss results, I will explain in detail what takes place during virtual gastric band hypnotherapy sessions. From there, we can decide whether it’s something suitable for you to pursue.
We share face-to-face sessions, ideally spaced one week apart. In between sessions you will follow the guidelines of the program that have been set out for you.
It’s important to note that during the sessions:
- You will always be 100% in control (hypnotherapy is the same state that you experience when you are engrossed in a book).
- You are not asleep, so you can interact and talk at any time.
- You can never be forced to do anything or say anything that you are not comfortable with – you are in control at all times. (If you were engrossed in a book and someone asked you to do something you weren’t comfortable with, you would simply look up at them and say ‘no’. Exactly the same applies with hypnotherapy).
- You will never feel any pain or discomfort
At the end of the first hypnotherapy session I’ll give you a daily support recording to listen to between sessions, as part of your program guidelines.
At the end of the program, I’ll give you an additional recording for ongoing support, should you wish.
Having tried everything, many people come to my clinic feeling frustrated and desperate for relief. They want a release from their problems, and in most cases NLP and hypnotherapy can help them achieve that release.
It’s important to note though that hypnotherapy is not a magic wand solution where problems will be fixed without any effort. All change requires some conscious choice, and if you wish to make that conscious choice, you can be richly rewarded.
Virtual Gastric Band Hypnotherapy is:
- Not a diet
- Not a short-term solution
- Not a vehicle to deprive you of food or to make you feel miserable and hungry.
Gastric Band hypnosis developed in Spain in 2006. Since then a number of different techniques have been developed. Sheila Granger developed her Virtual Gastric Band hypnotherapy program in the UK in 2007. Her program has a 95% success rate and is the only one that is undergoing full clinical trials.
