Gastric Band Hypnotherapy
All the gain none of the pain
We developed the Gastric Band hypnotherapy at the Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy nearly 8 years ago and we have been using it since as part of our weight control programme. Since then many hypnotherapists have created a whole therapy based on it having you visualising the preparation, the pre-surgery interview and then go through the operation all whilst under hypnosis. This whole procedure can take up to 4 sometimes even 6 sessions. Quite simply this is completely unnecessary.
Firstly, the medical profession would only consider doing a gastric band if the person was over eating i.e. eating too much at one sitting. If you are a grazer and you like to snack, maybe eating sweets, biscuits, or you raid the fridge several times during the day and evening then the gastric band hypnotherapy is inappropriate for you.
Secondly, it is much better to look at all your behaviours around food and if one of those behaviours is over eating we may well use the Gastric Band hypnotherapy. If we do it will be done in just one of the sessions as part of the weight loss programme.
We feel this is a much more sensible, effective and longer lasting approach. We have a lot of experience using the Gastric Band hypnotherapy and we feel it is the most beneficial way of implementing it.
How does it work?
Gastric Band hypnotherapy works by generating the full feeling much earlier in the eating process. We can all remember how we felt when we have over eaten. A good example would be Christmas dinner where we might have over indulged. If you remember a time like that you will know just how uncomfortable that feeling is. The last thing you would want to do would be eat any more food, Even the thought of it can make you feel sick. In our Hypnotic Gastric Band programme we install this feeling at a sub-conscious level so as you eat your meal we can bring on this feeling in gradual increments. We help you to start generating this feeling from when you are say half way through your meal and increasing as you continue your meal. This encourages you to have less and less desire to eat large portions.
In our Gastric Band hypnotherapy we are able to ask the subconscious mind to modify a person’s behaviour easily and effortlessly. Factors such as old behaviours, feelings and emotions, habits and exercise levels can be altered during the hypnotic process. Losing weight is a matter of lifestyle change.
Close your eyes sit back in your chair and ask yourself the only question that matters at this moment. Are you ready for change? If so our Gastric Band hypnotherapy could be for you.

Excellent therapy by outstanding therapists
|Ms Miller on July 19, 2017 at 19:28:02|
|I have been going to hypnotherapy at SICH on and off for a few months. This was after a recommendation from a friend. One therapist, Paul Howard, specialises in anxiety, for example, and after suffering with an anxiety related tremor, I was so happy when he stopped it using hypnosis. I had seen psychotherapist's, taken medication which only helped me so far. It never cured me. But, amazingly, Paul Howard stopped the tremor and gave me back my confidence. I am now even able to go on dates without the fear of spilling my drink all over the date! Drink...mmm. that was something I became too accustomed to and reliant upon after a hard day at work. I was putting on weight and once I started drinking I found it difficult to stop. But, Paul White is a problem behaviour specialist so SICH referred me to him. I have now been sober for 2 months and 2 days and I don't even fancy a drink anymore. I goto the pub and nightclubs more than I did as a drinker and can dance as much as my friends. I even had a week in Ibiza without having a drop. Its cheaper as I only drink water and I have since lost half a stone without even watching my diet. Another problem SICH treated me for was depression. I was diagnosed 20yrs ago and have been on and off medication and in and out of counselling. I completely value counselling but the 4 hypnotherapy sessions I had at SICH got me out of my bed and back to work after 4 weeks of severe depression. I have since (with my GP guidance) stopped taking my medication. I feel as if the hypnotherapy has changed my life. It's reached parts of me that the psychologist's have taken years to help me discover. I can whole heartedly recommend it to anyone. But, I wouldn't just trust anyone and was very lucky to be recommended to SICH by a friend. Thank you to both Paul's at SICH.|

Easy weight loss
|Lin Mcgraw on October 12, 2016 at 10:08:32|
|So easy to follow. First time in years I have been able to loose weight.|
Excellent, non-judgemental learning experience.

|Hypnotherapy was very helpful in helping me think differently about issues relating to food|
|Tracey Spence on November 30, 2016 at 18:27:40|
|I have been struggling to lose weight since I hit my 40's, so decided to try hypnotherapy. I needed to lose approx 2 stone. After the first session of hypnotherapy I lost 9lbs in 2 weeks, I had another session and left a long gap before going back. Had a slight blip, but 3rd session got me back on track. Had 4th and last session last week. I have lost a stone and am still losing steadily. More than I have lost all year trying various diets. The hypnotherapy keeps you focused and pinpoints issues. I would recommend this for anyone struggling with their weight.|

Came for weight loss and anxiety
|Fiona Fernando-burke on July 05, 2016 at 16:42:08|
|I will be honest and say I came initially for weight loss and maybe had high expectations as I thought this will be the answer finally to years of being obese. I thought it would be an easy answer but I do have to work with the plan for it to work. I am slightly disappointed that I haven't lost more than a stone in over 6 weeks but remain positive as I now know what to do. Paul is very understanding and patient and am happy seeing him. I am still seeing Paul for Anxiety as only had one session so far. Hopeful that this will help.|
For 50 years we have been living with many fictitious beliefs about weight loss.
Now the truth is out. Read Olivia's story and the dramatic effect it had on her life.
Then, I would like to send you regular emails to help you to start taking control of your weight and give you a chance to think, feel and relate to food differently. I want you to know upfront that I will send you one or two emails every week.
