Safe Weight Loss with Gastric Banding Hypnosis
Bariatric surgery, or weight loss surgery, includes several procedures performed on people who are obese. It can cost more than £7,000 to have an actual gastric band fitted privately and it is only available on the NHS in extreme circumstances or where all other attempts to lose weight have proved futile. The surgery involves fitting a band around part of the stomach therefore slowing the passage of food so restricts the capacity of the stomach.
The size of the stomach is reduced by implanting a medical device.
When using a hypnotic gastric band, you will hear suggestions, guided imagery and hypnotherapy techniques, which can reproduce all the physical benefits of Gastric Banding just as though it has been performed in the operating theatre.
This form of therapy, for some, has actually been more successful than the real thing, with the added assurance that there are no medical complications, drugs or side effects. In 2009 it was reported in The Daily Mail that a mother with 3 children lost 56 pounds using this method.
After using our Gastric Band Hypnosis session you will actually feel feel as though you have actually undergone surgery, but of course without any of the discomfort, pain and health risks of actual surgery. After the session you should find that you are content with small portions of food, and larger meals will make you uncomfortable, and if you ignore the subconscious message that tells you, you have “eaten enough” you may feel sick and actually vomit. The power of your unconscious mind can cause strong reactions and Hypnotherapy taps into this phenomenon.
All memories of the hypnotic gastric band operation should stay with you so that you are always aware of your smaller stomach, and the impact this will have on how you eat. The whole Virtual hypnotic gastric band is painless, very relaxing, but at the same time realistic and effective.
With our hypnotic gastric band session, there is the added benefit of relaxing music at specific points, helping the listener to relax even more, and absorb the information whilst the therapist guides the listener with gentle suggestions, positive language, and life changing imagery.
During Hypnotherapy, whether using a CD or mp3 download, or face-to-face, rest assured that you are the one in control, able to wake up if you need to and attend to anything that you need to. Hypnotherapy won’t force you to do something or say something that you would not normally say or do, and it won’t try to coerce you into doing so.

How can I be more Confident?
To be more confident, try changing the way you think about yourself. You can re frame your negative thoughts about yourself into positive ones that support you instead of tearing you down. The following exercise will help you re frame your negative mental “snapshots” of yourself – replacing the dreary, old frame that surrounds each thought with a bright, shiny new one.To be more confident, try changing the way you think about yourself.

4 Top Tips To be more Confident
1 List the positives
Write a list of all the positive things about yourself – all the things you like, things people have complimented you on, your strengths, talents, and abilities, positive aspects of your character, appearance, etc. Write down everything you can think of.
2 List the negatives
Next, write a list of things you’d like to improve about yourself, or that are still “in process” – things you don’t like about yourself, etc.
3 Re frame the negatives
Now go through the list from #2 and – on a new sheet of paper – write a new positive version for each that “re frames” it in a self-supporting, self-encouraging way, (for example, if you wrote “I can’t jump higher than 2 feet,” you might write the new version of “I’ve increased my jumping ability by 6 inches during the last year” or “I can jump with more accuracy than I could 2 months ago.” Another example might be if you wrote “I don’t like my face,” you might rewrite it as “my nose gives me a wonderful, unique character all my own” or “my eyes convey my beauty and love very clearly.”
Make sure that you are still being honest in the new version you write – only write things that you honestly feel. In some cases, you may need to be creative to find the “silver lining.”
4 Release the negatives
When you are finished, tear up or burn your old list from #2 (to symbolically release the negatives), and keep your original list of positives (from #1) and your new “reframed” list (from #3) to review periodically to help keep your self-esteem on track.
Keep in mind that the idea of this exercise is not to reject your self-criticisms, but to first acknowledge them, and then use them as a springboard into a more positive, productive way of thinking about yourself. Self Hypnosis can be a great tool to help you to be more confident.
