Gastric Band Hypnotherapy

If you are considering gastric band hypnotherapy, it is important we discuss how appropriate the treatment is for you. Please contact me if you would like to discuss this with me further.

What is Gastric Band Hypnotherapy?

Gastric band hypnotherapy is a non-invasive alternative to weight loss surgery. It involves using suggestions and hypnotherapy to help you lose weight.

During the five-session program, I will work with you to create a visualisation of having a gastric band fitted, which will help you feel fuller quicker, make healthier food choices, and boost your self-esteem and confidence. I utilise my Solution Focused approach to Hypnotherapy to help you work towards your preferred future weight, focusing on what you do want rather than what you don’t want; to eat healthily, eat smaller portions, gain control over your eating habits and eat more appropriately rather than eat emotionally and comfort eat. Successfully achieve your desired goal weight and maintain it.

Gastric band hypnotherapy is not a quick fix, but it can be a helpful tool for people struggling to lose weight independently. It can help you to change your relationship with food and make lasting changes to your lifestyle.

Here are some of the benefits of gastric band hypnotherapy:

  • It is a non-invasive procedure, so there is no surgery or anaesthesia, which do carry their own risks.
  • It is a safe and effective way to lose weight.
  • It can help you to make long-term changes to your lifestyle.
  • It can help you to improve your self-esteem and confidence.

The five sessions are 60 minutes long and set out as follows and require your full commitment to attend and participate; this is not a passive activity: You have to be prepared to put the work in to achieve your desired goals.

What is Gastric Band Surgery?

A traditional Gastric Band involves a surgeon performing keyhole surgery under general anaesthetic to apply a (usually) silicone band to the patient’s stomach to create a smaller pouch or stomach. In doing so, the patient can only tolerate eating and drinking a smaller amount at a time and is initially counselled only to eat blended, healthy foods.

It is usually only performed on patients who have tried every method available to them to lose weight and need to lose more than 7 stone (45 kg approx). They can expect to pay £3000-4000+ privately or wait an excess of 18 months for bariatric surgery on the NHS once approved.

Follow-up appointments are required to ensure that the patients tolerate the gastric band, are not overeating, follow the strict regime, and cope with the new normal.

The band is adjusted by either adding or taking away saline via a port in the abdomen to ensure that the weight loss is within expected limits.

Before having surgery, patients are usually required to undergo a rigorous psychological assessment to determine whether or not they will adhere to the program, as it does require a lifestyle change that some may not be prepared to commit to.
