New for 2021!
Lockdown has seen a rise in the number of people looking for weight management; it's a combination of factors, I suppose: there's been a huge surge in people baking and/or cooking from scratch; some people eat when they are bored and prevented from doing their usual activities and others eat as a comfort to deal with their anxieties because it's something they can control.
For a limited time I've decided to upgrade my 4 session Virtual Gastric Band programme and bring in an extra session ie 5 or 7 sessions as opposed to 4 /6, with the initial session focussed on removing barriers to healthy life style and weight management. If you have a significant amount of weight to manage then you may wish to purchase more sessions for a while or to settle on to a maintenance schedule to keep you on track.
I'll still be using the Virtual Gastric Band as part of the programme but there will be lots more put in to support emotional and mental wellbeing and, of course, lots of fun homework! I am a practitioner in a number of modalities which I will be using to enhance your weight management journey.
Remember that there are many sources of information about weight management across the social media channels including information about healthy eating, BMI, exercise etc. A reliable source of information is the nhs website Change4Life; there is also an app available which you can download to your phone or tablet.
So what is The Virtual Gastric Band?
It is a tried and trusted weight management programme which enables clients to take control of their eating habits and to make conscious decisions based on a healthy lifestyle. It is what I use as the basis of most weight management programmes. A basic programme of sessions will enable you to make a start on your weight management journey but remember, everyone is different, so results and sessions vary.
It's definitely not about being on a diet!
A surgical gastric band requires a skilled surgeon and will set you back thousands of pound as the surgeon creates a new smaller pouch so that you feel fuller, faster. It is major surgery with all the risks this brings, so should not be entered into lightly. In fact, the criteria for having this procedure on the NHS is very strict, so most obese people would not qualify, even though their lifestyle is restricted and their health may be compromised.
The Virtual Gastric Band, however, is performed in one session where the client's Unconscious is persuaded that a procedure has taken place to shrink the size of their stomach so that they feel fuller faster.
During the programme the client is encouraged to re-evaluate their relationship with food, to look at the reasons for overeating and to establish healthy eating routines alongside a programme of exercise to support the work of the Virtual Gastric Band.
It is quite normal for the client to find benefits in other aspects of their life as a result of the Virtual Gastric Band weight management hypnotherapy such as improved sleep patterns, a reduction in stress levels and a general feeling of wellbeing.
Every client is different so I am happy to discuss client needs on an individual basis to achieve realistic and healthy changes. If you are ready to make a start, book in for your consultation. I ask lots of questions and there will definitely be "homework" tasks to complete between sessions.
So, if you have tried them all - the diets that promise so much: the F Plan, the Cabbage Soup diet, the Low Carb, the low Protein, the Lemon Juice, the Atkins... and you are still struggling with your weight, this is for you!
Crisp addiction/ sugar loading/ midnight snacking or a pork pie fan... ? Whatever your weakness, I will tailor the programme to your individual needs.
Please know that this is very much about working together and having a positive intention to change; this is not for you if you are not willing to follow the programme, do the homework, make changes to your daily habits.
Results will vary so I am unable to give guarantee of a certain amount of weight loss but I will work with you to have realistic targets.
Remember : There is no change without change!
