Hypno-Band™ Weight Loss System
The Hypno-Band weight loss system is the world’s most popular, and original, gastric band hypnotherapy programme which combines clinical hypnotherapy techniques with evidence-based CBT to help people develop effective weight management strategies, both ‘practical’ and ‘psychological’.
Hypno-Band has over 1,500 practitioners based in 45 countries and has been in existence since 2010. Not only were Paul and Joan amongst the earliest practitioners in the West Midlands, but they are now also the owners of the global Hypno-Band business.
You can visit the main Hypnoband website here.
The full Hypno-Band weight loss programme is still available with Joan here at the Tranceform Psychology clinic.
How Does it Work?
Normally taking place over 4 sessions, the system is designed to address your relationship with food through an examination of your eating habits which are then addressed using clinical hypnotherapy combined with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) worksheets which are filled-in during the week between sessions one and two. This process allows you to make the important link between your eating habits and your thought processes.
Once you have lost a sufficient amount of preliminary weight using this process you then move onto the next phase which involves more hypnotherapy in which it is suggested that you are having a gastric band fitted which makes your stomach feel smaller so that you can become satisfied with smaller portions of food.
The final session (4th session) takes place a few weeks after the ‘surgery’ session and is used to make adjustments to your ‘band’. This normally involves either tightening or loosening the band depending on how you have got on since the band was ‘fitted’.
Who Is it Suitable For?
Hypno-Band was originally designed for people with BMI’s over 35, however, in recent years it has also proven to be useful for people with lower BMI’s wanting to learn how to take more control over their eating habits.
It is equally suitable for men and women over the age of 18.
People with un-controlled Thyroid problems are not suitable, as are those people with weight problems associated with any kind of medical weight problem.
What Does it Cost?
The whole process costs £495 payable at commencement of the programme.
