HypnoBand - Gastric Band Hypnosis

HypnoBand™ approach to weight loss

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 Heather is a Licensed Practitioner of the HypnoBand™.  There are only a few Licensed Practitioners of the HypnoBand™ in Central Scotland and even less in Falkirk alone.  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, Heather 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.

How long does HypnoBand™ take?

The Hypnogastric band, virtual gastric band involves 4 sessions. In the first session Heather 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 MP3s for you to use at home and you will be asked to do some homework between sessions.

The HypnoBand has featured on TV on Embarrassing Fat Bodies and the Hypnotic gastric band technique successes were recently portrayed on This Morning with 2 ladies having lost over 5 stone.  We have had clients lose over 8 stone with this technique and regularly have people lose around 5 stone so much so that it really can be seen as an real alternative to gastric band surgery.

A deposit of £50 is required at book which is refundable on completion of session 4.  Then the price of the HypnoBand is £450 for the four sessions.  You can either pay this up front at the 1st session or split it into three payments over the 1st three sessions (e.g. session 1 – £150, session 2 – £150, session 3 – £150).  Complete all four sessions and receive your £50 deposit back.

Dear Heather, what you did for me changed my life forever. I′ve found a different me. I′m stronger, fitter and healthier physically and mentally. I have drive and determination I didn’t know I would have. Since meeting you I have lost 7 stones in weight. 7 stones! I have battled with my weight for 20 years and the fight between me and food is over. Food tastes better now. I eat a very healthy diet. I have never gone hungry. I know that people see a change in me, and from our very first appointment my mindset about food changed. I no longer waste food inside my body that my body didn′t need. I went on an aeroplane in December and didn′t need a seat belt extension! And used the table for the first time! I′m horse riding again. I never thought THAT would happen! I can go on all the rides at the fun fair! I′ve booked a sky dive! I′m going to do a shark dive at Deep Sea World too I hope – and all of these things were impossible dreams before. My life motto now is “go hard or go home”, I′m taking life by the hand and giving it PROPER GUTS. I am NO LONGER A BYSTANDER. Thank you Heather, for everything.

I would recommend Heather as she is a lovely woman with a relaxing voice. She has helped me so much with weight loss, I couldn’t have got this far in such a short time without her. I have lost 2 stone and 2 lbs in 9 weeks, and 48”, and I am continuing to lose weight steadily every week. I know that if I have any issues or I am struggling, Heather is on hand with great advice. Thanks Heather xx

Heather and the HypnoBand service is fantastic. It makes you think about what you need to change and the reasons for doing it. Each session has been great and value for money. 8 weeks in, 22lb + 17.5 inches down!

Lost a stone in 5/6 weeks. Completely positive thinking. These feelings reinforced by each hypnotherapy session. Have tried many different types of ‘diets.’ This new regime in eating habits is by far the best. Heather very good – explanation & hypnosis first class.

I had a HypnoBand fitted in March/April 2013 and Heather was brilliant. I had one really bad addiction to chocolate since I stopped smoking and could not kick it. Now I don’t eat chocolate at all or sweets that I used to eat all the time either. I am diabetic and at the time was taking 3 different medications for it and have just been to my diabetic clinic yearly appointment and the consultant was over the moon as I have lost nearly 2 stones in weight and have also cut out 6 milligrams of medication off the diabetic meds. So whatever Heather did it is working and I am quite happy to lose 1 lb or whatever a month as long as it keeps working. Heather worked her magic on me and would not hesitate to recommend her to others. Good luck Heather in your new venture in Livingston.

Just a wee update it’s 18 weeks since we met for our first session and I’d like to update you as to my progress, I reached my initial target and I’m really chuffed with my progress. I reached my 5 stone target this week and so far my weight loss is 5st 4lb and 18 inches thanks for all your support. I’ve set myself a new target of 7.5 stone and I feel setting myself small achievable goals is the way forward so the long term goal doesn’t seem so daunting and far off.

Had HypnoBand hypnosis and I would recommend using Heather for Anything in the future. Heather makes you feel at ease from the first time you meet her and is always there for her clients during and after their sessions for support. My HypnoBand has been great but through hypnosis and willpower I am losing weight.

I recently came to your clinic for a hypno band, I wasn’t sure at first because I had tried everything under the sun but the bottom line was I had no willpower at all. I had 2 hypno sessions with you before the gastric band session and was looking forward to the band session. I enjoyed the session but at the time I didn’t feel much difference and for the next 2 weeks I didn’t feel anything had changed and thought that it wasn’t for me and was readly (and willing) to give up. However a day or so later it was like a “light going off in my head” and I started to feel better in myself, not as hungry and I have started going to various exercise classes i.e. body combat, kettlecise, body pump which I have never tried before, I am now losing weight steadily, not eating to extreme and exercising regularly. The main thing I notice is that I am not thinking about food 24/7 the way I was previously and have managed to stop eating at least 6 packets of crisps per day !!!!!

Thank you for your support and I will let you know when I am at the weight I want to be, I would recommend the hypno band to anyone considering it.

I would recommend Heather as attending this program was very relaxing. Heather put me at ease, boosting my confidence, therefore making it a lot easier to lose weight using the Hypnoband rather than any slimming club I have attended.

Very positive. Hypnoband is definitely the best weight loss solution. Having tried every slimming club you can think of, a Hypnoband is the best. Don’t need to think about food anymore or count calories or points. Food is not a major thought. I am eating smaller portions and full quicker, and no longer snacking in between. Thank you very much Heather.

In May this year I went to see Heather at the clinic in Polmont. The clinic is lovely and relaxing and Heather is so friendly and welcoming. I have spent many years trying out different diets and all the latest fads, I could probably write a book there is nothing I don’t know, or so I thought. All the health professionals say eat less and move more, well it’s not rocket science and it does work believe it or not. However I was not in the frame of mind at the time until I met Heather and went through the hypnoband process. I went form being a totally frazzled mum, holding down a demanding job and juggling everything to being very relaxed and feeling like I was 6ft tall, bearing in mind I’m only 5ft 1in. The whole process made me look at why I constantly grazed at food and the reasons behind me over-eating, I found the food diary to be really helpful and for once did not think about how many calories was in something. I just ate 3 healthy meals a day with healthy snacks when I wanted something and in the first week I lost 8lb. The CD’s I also found to be very relaxing and my sub-conscious must have taken over as by the time I had finished doing my deep breathing I was so relaxed I was actually sleeping.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has struggled with their relationship with food. Heather is so friendly and easy to talk to and at times so relaxing that I don’t want to wake up. Not only has this helped with my own weight loss but also with relaxation and tools to cope in my often busy and hectic life.

Heather has helped me take back control of not only my eating but also my life. I found the therapy relaxing and it helped me find my old self.
