The whole process takes five x 60 minute sessions. Usually this is achieved over 6-8 weeks but this is flexible depending on your progress. The first Talking assessment session gives us time to discuss any emotional eating, bad habits etc
- Session 1– Talking aspect – best to have a 2 hour session time to run through everything
- Session 2- Changing Behaviours Hypnotherapy – focusing on better eating habits, motivation to exercise, cravings, binge-eating etc – 1 hour
- Session 3 – Preparation for Surgery Hypnotherapy – visualisation of meeting your Surgeon and discussing the process of your Gastric Band – 1 hour
- Session 4 – Virtual Gastric Band Operation – Hypnotherapy – a visualisation using real theatre sounds to mimic the real operation. Very powerful and believable to the Subconscious mind -1 hour
- Session 5 – Adjusting the Band Hypnotherapy session – Visualisation of returning to the Surgeon’s office to have a minor operation to tighten the band some more just as you would in reality if the band had loosened. There is normally a gap of 5 weeks + after the operation before this last session to allow for some weight-loss – 1 hour

♥ I prefer to use photos on my phone to compare progress by being able to stretch the images to show the positive as well as negative aspects.
For example, we may just think we are fat all over but in actual fact you may have a nice hourglass shape that just needs slimming down or a good jawline, firm bottom etc.
We can also target areas by seeing where you carry that excess weight and see what exercise/activity would help to tone up that particular area.
I take photos at the first session then again after your operation to see any progress you’ve made up to that time (usually within a 4 week period) then the final photos when you come back for the ‘Tightening the Band’ hypno session (usually 5 – 8 weeks after the operation)
You will see results dependent on your progress re portion and lifestyle changes and it will give you that kickstart to continue until you reach your desired weight and maintain that with your new way of thinking about food and activity in your life.
Example 1 – This petite lady had difficulty losing weight by exercising due to having had a stroke which left some paralysis on the right side of her body causing more weight gain on that side.
She also needed a walking stick as she got so tired walking about which was affecting her posture and making her stoop forwards.
She was also on quite a lot of medication and one in particular had weight gain as a side effect. We formulated a simple exercise plan that she could do while sitting in her chair watching TV and over time, it balanced out the two sides.
She also lost some weight and felt more positive about losing the rest gradually as she had altered her portion size and made lifestyle changes.
The first photos in blue were taken at the first session and the second lot of photos were taken at the final session so we see an 8 week gap between the two.
She chose the Hypnoband and Happyweight Programme so we had 2 hours at each session to work through emotional, physical and lifestyle changes.
Even though she was limited in her abilities due to Fibromyalgic pain and loss of mobility, she felt empowered to carry on and was pleased with herself instead of feeling tired and frustrated. We also looked at how certain outfits made her look larger and hid her lovely hourglass figure as well as making her legs look short. She started dressing to complement her figure rather than hide it.
Example 2 –The next set of photos are actually of myself when I was going through a lot of personal stress in my life and I was bingeing on red wine and junk food (emotional and comfort eating).
I had also had an operation which appeared to trigger the Menopause, my immune system was depleted and I developed several chronic health conditions. I was on daily medication for Menieres Disease, Asthma, High Blood Pressure, GERD and Silent Reflux.
Due to the vertigo, dizziness, drop attacks and chronic fatigue with the Menieres at that time, I struggled to walk for even short distances so I really didn’t get any exercise.
I knew I was overweight but looking back now at these photo’s I didn’t realise exactly how much I’d gained. It had just sort of gradually crept up !!
To top it all, I developed the ‘fat around the middle Menopausal-belly’, double chin and bigger boobs. I knew where my ‘Target areas’ were and the photos confirmed this. I followed the Hypnoband Programme and you can see the difference 8 weeks later here in photo 3.
The Mid-section still needed toning up but at that point, my balance still wasn’t good enough to cope with Yoga or other forms of exercise. I actually had to give up massaging clients for 3 years.
Photo 4 dressed in blue top and jeans showed a marked difference a few months later.
My figure has been up and down since then due to allowing bad habits (and being lazy during the Covid-19 Lockdowns) to creep in so it really does need to be a lifestyle change just like any other diet/weight loss Programme.
However, the idea with the Hypnoband Programme is that you focus on eating smaller portions and lead a more active life rather than bingeing and sitting around all day if you have a sedentary job and just watching lots of TV.
It’s natural to gain weight again at certain times in your life … perhaps you went on a long cruise and ate and drank lots … perhaps you fell pregnant and had a few babies …perhaps you started progressing towards Menopause …. perhaps you broke your leg … perhaps their were too many pub quizzes with friends …. there are so many reasons why the healthy eating and exercise routines can go out the door.
The good thing about this Programme is that you can just set your mind to it, look at your notes, listen to the Hypnotherapy tracks and start again until you are back on track.
If you feel happier using a tape measure, weighing yourself on medical scales at Boots Pharmacy or your own than just going by the fit of your clothes and how you look in photos …. then that’s fine. Work out a system that feels right for you.
You develop a lifestyle and an eating plan that suits you, eating the foods you enjoy (although some choices would be in moderation of course) … as well as activities that you enjoy which can be Yoga, swimming, walking, dancing, golf, cycling, hiking or going to the gym !!
During the Programme, you can follow any eating plan that suits you and that you enjoy such as Vegetarian, Scottish Slimmers, Pescotarian, Vegan, High Protein Meat diets etc.
This is not a specific diet plan …. it’s about looking at food in a different way, listening to your body’s natural hunger signals rather than eating because it’s a set meal time … as well as eating smaller portions of the foods you enjoy.
