Each session normally lasts about 2 hours. There is free parking on site and if you are coming by car put the car nose into the driveway, there are traffic lights which give easy exit.

The hypno-gastric band is over 4 sessions, where self-hypnosis is taught so that you can use the CDs at home. A BMI chart is issued so that you can record your progress. The total cost is £350 and is over a four to five week period.

Clinical Hypnosis

What is Hypnosis?

Contrary to popular belief, hypnosis is not a state of deep sleep. It involves the induction of a trance-like state, the person is actually in an enhanced state of awareness, concentrating entirely on the hypnotists voice. In this state, the conscious mind is suppressed and the subconscious mind is revealed.

Will I lose control?

No! You will be in control at all times and be able to talk and if you wish you can get up and leave, this has never happened not because they can’t, but they are experiencing a pleasant time.

Will I get Stuck in hypnosis?

No! All hypnosis is self hypnosis and you will waken up in your own time. What has happened in the past is that some people enjoy the experience so much that they don’t wish to come back, but this is easily resolved.

Will I remember what has happened?

You will remember all or most of what has happened as if you had a normal conversation and probably more so because one of your senses has been shut down (Your sense of sight) and your other senses are improved to compensate for the temporary loss.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is the study of psychotherapy which helps people to overcome emotional problems.

Cognitive means everything that goes on in your mind.

Behaviour is the way you act.

Therapy is a systematic approach to combating a problem.

Neuro Linguistic Programming

Neurology The mind and how we think.

Linguistic How we use language and its effect on us.

Programming How we view our action in order to achieve our goals.

NLP is today one of the foremost therapies creating positive changes in business and personal development. Developed in 1970s by Richard Bandler and John Grinder. They studied Milton Erickson, Fritz Perls and Virginia Satir who were at the time the greatest exponents of positive changes in their clients.

Wondering why they achieved such remarkable results they analysed the way those people thought and viewed the world. NLP is about what works, not what might work. It can help you to achieve your goals in life by making positive changes to your emotions and internal thoughts.

Thought Field Therapy

Thought Field Therapy is a cutting edge treatment that can be used used to conquer emotional distress, including phobias, anxiety, stress, compulsions and many more emotional concerns.

TFT is based on time honoured principles of both contemporary clinical psychology and Chinese medicine. It is a drug-free method of literally tapping into the body’s energy and clearing up blockages – - without using acupuncture needles, drugs, or any other invasive means.

TFT can provide emotional renewal quickly and safely with no side effects and without having to go years of therapy. In working with a TFT therapist, you’ll find the tools you need to use this powerful yet simple therapy and discover how TFT can change your life for the better.

Aversion Therapy

This is a form of Behavioural Therapy which involves pairing unwanted behaviour with discomfort.

A person who wishes to stop smoking would be programmed to feel sick or a bad taste or foul smell or receive a mild electric shock, when ever they put a cigarette to their mouth.

Once this unpleasant feeling is associated with their addiction the hope is that the unwanted behaviour or actions will begin to decrease or stop entirely.

In minor cases the person may wear an elastic band around their wrist and whenever the unwanted behaviour presents itself they will snap the elastic band to create a slightly painful deterrent.

Hypno Gastric Band

Gastric Band Hypnotherapy at a fraction of the cost of a gastric band operation (£3000-£4000) and without invasive surgery and dangers as with all major surgery. It is considered by people who have tried to lose weight without success and wish to avoid major surgery.

The Therapist will use Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), positive thinking and visualisation during the sessions. There will be 4 sessions at a cost of £350 lasting over a period of 4-5 weeks, you will be issued when 3 CDs for homework and a BMI chart to monitor your progress.

During the first session I will gather information so that the treatment is tailor made to your needs. You will be taught self hypnosis, so that you can use the CDs at home to re-enforce the treatment and prepare yourself for the hypno-gastric band.

The hypno gastric band is fitted on the 3rd session. This normally lasts about one hour using hypnosis to convince the client that they have had the full surgical operation and their stomach reduced to one third of its present size. At the end of this session there should be a change in their eating habits and a reduction of food intake which will results in weight loss.

During the fourth session the client will be asked if they are happy with their band or whether they need the band tightened or loosened. One of the main benefits is that hypnosis addresses any emotional and psychological problems that the client has so that they maintain their ideal weight years after the hypnotherapy treatment.

  • What is TFT?

    Thought Field Therapy is a technique for resolving emotional and psychological issues. The advocates are sometimes known as the Tappers as they tap the meridians of the body in a precise order.

  • What is the Gastric Band?

    The Gastric Band is fitted around the top part of the stomach under a surgical operation reducing its size. When the stomach is full a message is sent to the brain to stop eating. The problem is the Gastric Banding looks at the problem not the cause. Under hypnosis the emotional and psychological issues are more important.

  • Aversion Therapy?

    Is a form of Behavioural Therapy where the unwanted adiviction is paired with dislike (Foul smell, Bad taste, which could make you sick). Sometimes an elastic band is fitted round the wrist and when ever a thought of smoking occurs, the band is plucked to cause a slight pain, which hopefully reduces the thought of smoking and eventually eliminates the desire to smoke.
