Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss
in Altrincham, Cheshire, Manchester
Weight Loss Hypnotherapy, EFT and NLP with fully qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist Toni Mackenzie
Are you a yo-yo dieter? Fed up of losing weight only to put it on again?
Diets don’t work for long term weight control, but taking control of your mind does… Hypnotherapist Toni Mackenzie can help you take control of your mind and your eating habits using hypnotherapy for weight loss in Altrincham, Cheshire, Manchester and keep it off for good.
She will work with you as the unique individual you are, to help you become consciously aware of why, when, what, how much, you are eating, and whether you are feeling real physical hunger or emotional hunger.
Unlike wild animals who naturally eat just the right amount and therefore maintain their optimum weight, we eat for any number of reasons. We eat when weâ€™re bored, unhappy, upset, to commiserate, and we associate eating with happy times, socialising, celebrating, or we eat just out of habit. Eating habits and weight issues can also be the result of messages received and absorbed into your subconscious mind during childhood.
Once you are aware of why you over-eat, you can begin to deal with any unresolved emotional issues and limiting beliefs you may have, and lose the excess weight you wish to lose. EFT can help you let go of these issues and beliefs, and Hypnotherapy and NLP can re-programme your subconscious mind by creating new positive thoughts, feelings, and actions, helping you to take control of your eating habits, and reach and maintain your ideal weight.
Hypno Band Gastric Band Hypnotherapy
In order to lose weight, many people have resorted to the extreme method of having a gastric band fitted surgically, making their stomach extremely small so that it’s virtually impossible to over-eat. Now there is an easier and safer way to achieve a similar result, by using virtual gastric band hypnotherapy, and this method of achieving weight loss has proven to be very effective for many people.
GMTV’s Lorraine Kelly and Dr. Hilary Jones talk to a headteacher who successfully lost seven stone after Virtual Gastric Band Hypnotherapy.
Gastric Band Hypnotherapy is not for everyone and is not a quick fix, nor a ‘magic wand’ to enable you to stop over-eating. Before having the virtual gastric band fitted, it’s important that you deal with any emotional issues which have lead to you over-eating in the past, and begin to take control of your eating habits, eating consciously, mindfully, and in smaller portions.
For this weight loss method to work, you will need to be motivated, focused and prepared, with the help of hypnotherapy, to allow your subconscious mind to imagine your stomach is the size of a golf ball, so that you are only able to eat extremely small portions of food before feeling that you are full.
Gastric band surgery is designed for those with a Body Mass Indicator (BMI) over 25. A BMI between 18 and 25 is regarded as ‘normal’, between 25 and 30 is classed as ‘overweight’ and a BMI between 30 and 40 is in the ‘obese’ range. If you have a BMI over 40 you are classed as ‘morbidly obese’.
Obesity can lead to conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes Type II, stroke, cancer, joint problems such as osteoarthritis, high blood pressure, and can even affect life expectancy.
If you have a BMI of over 25, have read and fully absorbed the information on this page, and feel that gastric band surgery could help you to lose weight, the Hypno-Band is a safe, risk free and inexpensive alternative to actual surgery.
How the Hypno-Band Weight Loss System Works
The Hypno-Band system is normally carried out over three hypnotherapy sessions, preceded by an assessment session and then there is a follow up session six weeks after the virtual band has been fitted.
Please note that if there are psychological or emotional issues which need to be addressed before going ahead with the virtual gastric band surgery session, or if you have not changed your eating habits and already started to lose weight before the ‘pre-op’ hypnotherapy session, extra sessions will be required before your ‘surgery’ can be carried out, and these additional sessions will be charged for at the hourly rate.
You will be weighed and measured by your therapist and an assessment will be carried out to determine any underlying issues, negative habits, and limiting beliefs, as it is important to personalise the weight loss programme for each individual client. CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and (Emotional Freedom Technique) are likely to be used to help you begin to change your thoughts, feelings, and eating habits.
Your first hypnosis session will take you on a relaxing hypnotic journey to help you begin to release any negative emotions and limiting beliefs, then create positive imagery and suggestions to help you commence your weight loss. You will be given handouts including a food diary, healthy eating advice, exercise tips, and a hypnotherapy recording to listen to each day over the following week. (Sessions 1 and 2 are usually carried out over two consecutive hours during the first meeting.)
One week later your food diary entries will be discussed and you will again be weighed and measured by your therapist. Provided you have already changed your eating habits and lost weight and/or inches, you will be ready to have your second hypnotherapy session to prepare you for the procedure of fitting the virtual gastric band. You will be required to listen to the hypnotherapy recording from the previous week, four times over the following week.
The next week, your virtual gastric band is fitted whilst you once again relax into a hypnotic trance. You will be given a hypnotherapy recording to listen to each day over the following week and a copy of the Hypno-Band post-op diet, which is adapted from the BOSPA (British Obesity Surgery Patients Association) and contains six golden eating plan rules.
Approximately six weeks after the fitting of your virtual gastric band there will be a follow up session to check if the band needs to be tightened or loosened, positive suggestions are reinforced during a further session of hypnotherapy, and you are given another hypnotherapy recording to listen to over the following few months, to help keep you ‘on track’ with your new way of eating healthily, and staying in control.
Cost of the Gastric-Band Procedure
Actual Gastric Band Surgery costs around £7000 to £8500. ItÂ involves taking time off work for the operation, and recovery time, and as with any type of surgery, there can be complications. Actual Gastric Band Surgery does not address your psychological or emotional reasons for over-eating or help you change your relationship with food.
Hypno-Band Surgery costs just £375 for the standard five sessions, each lasting approximately one hour. However, if additional sessions are necessary to deal with any deeper emotional or psychological issues affecting your eating habits or if you haven’t changed your eating habits or lost any weight/inches, before returning for your second hypnotherapy session, your ‘pre-op’ hypnotherapy session will need to be postponed until these issues are dealt with.
The successful outcome of the Hypno-Band Weight Loss system requires that you have dealt with any such issues, with the help of your therapist, and begun to take control of your eating habits, before having your ‘surgery’ hypnotherapy session. If this should be the case, any additional sessions will be charged for at the rate of £75 per hour.
