Weight loss with Hypno Gastric Band

A Hypno Gastric Band can be a very effective way of achieving weight loss, by helping to reduce the amount you eat.

Lorraine Gleeson, of the Hampshire School of Hypnotherapy, was licensed in September 2009 to train and provide the original Gastric Band Hypnotherapy programme, created by John Maclean.

She further developed the system using additional hypnotherapy and NLP (Neuro Linguistic programming) techniques, with excellent results. Her Hypno Gastric Band system is unique, and uses techniques developed over many years of working with clients wanting to achieve weight loss.

How Hypno Gastric Band hypnotherapy works

Hypno Gastric Band hypnotherapy suggests to the unconscious mind that you have had a gastric band fitted around your stomach. Many people report feeling fuller quicker after the procedure, as if their stomach has really been constricted and reduced in size.

Real Gastric Band surgery involves fitting a band around the upper part of the stomach, which then limits the amount of food the person can eat, helping them to lose excess weight. As with any surgical procedure, it comes with potential risks and complications, as well as waiting lists and/or expense.

Crucially, it doesn't address the reasons why people over-eat. Many people who've had gastric band surgery will often still want to eat the way they've always eaten, liquidising food so they can still keep over-eating. Hypno Gastric band also addresses the reasons behind the over-eating, so that weight loss can be achieved and real change maintained.

Hypno Gastric Band hypnotherapy, or having a ‘virtual hypno gastric band’ fitted, doesn't need surgery. It is a technique that helps the unconscious mind to believe that a gastric band has been fitted. Once the unconscious mind accepts that the procedure has taken place and that your stomach has reduced in size, the amount of food eaten is also reduced, which can help in weight loss.

Testimonial: weight loss

I decided to have the HypnoGastric band fitted. Before the band fitting Pat helped me address the reasons for my overeating and what a revelation that was.

Had the band fitted at my third session. I could hear the sounds of theatre, smell the anaesthetic and hear my surgeon. I must stress that the band is not a magic cure, you have to work at it and I am so glad I did. I am losing weight slowly, making the right food choices, eating much smaller portions. My whole attitude to food has changed. I am relaxed and happy with my food choices and I savour every mouthful.

Pat is such a wonderful lady she really listens to you, straight talking and has such a desire to help you. I trust her implicitly and I am so glad I began this journey with her.

July 2018. Lady who had been overweight for most of her adult life and tried many different slimming clubs.

No magic involved

Hypno Gastric Band can be very effective - but it's not a magic wand. Hypnotherapy helps you to change your mindset, and can help your motivation if you really want to lose weight: but you still have to make changes in what and how you eat, and your exercise.  Losing excess weight and maintaining a healthy weight is still about eating regularly, planning ahead, eating sensibly most of the time with occasional treats (not the other way round...), and moving more.

If you want a method for losing weight without making any changes in your eating and exercise habits - Hypno Gastric Band isn't it, I'm afraid. But if you really want to lose weight and are prepared to make changes consciously and subconsciously - hypnotherapy in general, and Hypno Gastric Band in particular, can really make a dfiference.
