Whether you want a "virtual" Gastric Band, or long-term weight management plan, we have the right solution for you.

Gastric Band Hypnotherapy

Gastric band hypnotherapy is a specialist solution that can only be carried out by qualified a Gastric Band Practitioner (such as at Stepping Stones).

The technique used suggests to the subconscious that a gastric band has been fitted around the top part of your stomach, making you feel full quicker, as though your stomach has really been constricted. This band limits the amount of food that you can eat, helping you to lose excessive weight.

Once in a relaxed state, using hypnosis, you will be talked through the procedure as you really are having a band fitted. From meeting your surgeon, anesthetist (pre-op), the surgery itself, all the way through to tightening the gastric band. You then have follow up appointments to monitor the virtual bands success and to make any adjustments.

For some people it can be helpful to continue hypnotherapy sessions as part of a long-term weight management plan. This helps you to address underlying issues surrounding food and self-esteem.

The benefits over real surgery are substantial. No fear, no side effects and of course the cost of the actual surgical procedure is much less (average cost for surgical procedure is £5,000). In addition, it will address any emotional and psychological issues which may have caused you to begin over eating in the first place, and helping you to eliminate these so you can maintain a healthy weight even years after your initial hypnotherapy treatment.

If you are overweight it is not your fault, it is the natural result of your current mental programming in the way you feel and think about food. No diet or pill can change these feelings.

So the only way to lose weight and keep it off is to go to the unconscious mind and change your relationship with food forever. By reprogramming your mind, so you only eat as little or as much as is necessary for you to reach your ideal weight.

Once you learn to reprogramme your mind, it will be just as simple as to develop new habits of thinking and eating that will guarantee your success and slimmer life.

Individual sessions………………£ 55.00

A small price to pay for a slimmer you!

Of course, you need to want to make the change we can only help you if you are fully committed. So if you’re ready to see a new you smiling back in the mirror, take the next step to a better life and call today 07813 824604

Say Goodbye to ‘ the latest’ diets and achieve your ideal weight. Depriving yourself of food is the worst possible way to lose weight, and if what you are doing is not working, you need to do something different.

At Stepping Stones we have designed a unique programme to help you overcome the frustrations of dieting.

We are not only what we eat, but what we think as well. You can reprogramme your mind to slim your body. Before you know it, you will be doing this without even thinking about it.

By using a deeply relaxing hypnosis, losing weight can be an enjoyable and pleasurable experience.

Your body is smarter than any diet on earth. Forget about dieting forever. Diets are no more than training courses on how to get fat and feel like a failure.


Weight Control

What is Hypnotherapy?

It is not what you see on stage shows….but that it is a completely natural phenomenon which is drug free and non- addictive. It is a state which is self-induced assisted by the directions of the hypnotherapist. While in a state of hypnosis you are neither asleep nor unconscious, and you are fully aware of what is happening. The technique is a way of getting through to the subconscious mind and re-programming it. The subconscious mind influences our everyday experiences and a lot of memories, good and bad are stored there, even though we are not aware of these memories, which in turn, can affect our everyday lives, even though we are not aware that the subconscious is controlling us. Most sessions are carried out weekly over a four to six week period for the best results. Except quit smoking, this is usually a one off session, lasting a couple of hours.
