The HypnoBand™ is the world leader in Gastric Band Hypnosis. It is this approach which all the other Gastric Band treatments try to copy. The HypnoBand™ is safe, risk free, affordable and offers a real alternative to Gastric Band Surgery. Our Hypnotherapist Naomi is a Licensed Practitioner of the HypnoBand™, and the only licensed practitioner in South Ayrshire at this time. There are only a few Licensed Practitioners in Scotland - this is because the founder of the system wishes to ensure that only the highest qualified, ethical Hypnotherapists use this technique.
The HypnoBand™ is suitable for clients who have tried everything else to lose weight and nothing seems to work, or they are just fed up with yo-yo dieting. It is suitable for clients with a BMI of 30 or above (although clients with a BMI of 25-29 will be considered on an individual basis). The HypnoBand™ is the original Gastric Band System and as a Licensed Practitioner of the method, Naomi will work with you using a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Hypnotherapy to help you to lose weight. The HypnoBand™ method has a success rate of 70-80% and many clients find this approach completely life changing as it allows them to gain control over their eating and many clients begin to lose weight after the initial session.
The Hypnogastric band, virtual gastric band involves 4 sessions. In the first session Naomi will take some background information as to your eating practices. We will then look at the Wheres, Whens and Whys of your eating and the associated thought patterns behind this. Then we will look at changing these thoughts. You will be given lots of opportunity to ask questions and hypnotherapy will only take place if you are completely happy.
In the second session you will meet with your anaesthetist and surgeon under hypnosis and we will go into detail as to what the gastric band procedure involves.
The third session is the one you will be waiting for – the fitting of the gastric band. This uses hypnosis and is supported by the sound effects of an actual gastric band operation.
The fourth session is the follow up session, where we look at your progress and make sure everything is going to plan.
The sessions are supported by CDs for you to use at home and you will be asked to do some homework between sessions.
The cost of the HypnoBand™ procedure through our clinic is £500, and covers all materials, CDs and support between sessions if needed.
