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.

Best choice I have ever made.
|Charlotte on November 08, 2017 at 08:33:47|
|I came to resolve my anxiety and self deprecation. Honestly the BEST decision I have ever made - Paul was so easy to talk to and really understood where I was coming from. This has been life altering and could not recommend enough. Thank you so so much.|

|I was becoming increasingly inhibited with anxiety issues and not wanting to take the tablet path a friend of mine ( who had previously been successfully treated at SICH for a similar issue ) recommended I try hypnotherapy. I am after four sessions of hypnotherapy a born again anxiety free individual, with a clear mind and a positive outlook going forwards ... The process is conducted in an extremely relaxed, calming and above all professional environment .... I would therefore also recommend SICH as a very viable alternative to the regular well trodden path of GP's etc ....|
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.|

|I wanted to wait a few weeks before I gave my review to make sure I gave an honest review on how I have been since I've finished my sessions with Paul Howard. I can honestly say I think he's changed my life. I was suffering with bad anxiety alongside other side affects. He has given me a new sense of freedom and I feel like my old self again if not better. Thank you for everything you do to help people become the best versions of themselves. I am no longer stuck. Thank you. Charlotte|
Hypnosis for weightloss
|Glen Sinclair on November 01, 2016 at 21:32:07|

Exam nerves that froze me to the point of failure
|Pauline Mccullough on October 24, 2016 at 15:47:59|
|I came for hypnotherapy to ease my fears of taking an exam...I had failed the exam twice before, so felt going down the hypnotherapy route might help. I passed my third attempt. Paul was brilliant, the session and on-going recorded session that I was able to tap into at my leisure put me in a place of control. I highly recommend this company, I would definitely go back if I was faced with a situation again I felt would warrant support from Paul.|
I Feel a New Person Now
|Mark Eastwood on October 14, 2016 at 12:05:55|
|I would like to sincerely thank Paul Howard of the Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy who has helped me greatly to overcome a number of issues that I wanted to resolve. I feel a new person now. Specifically Paul is very direct, honest and out to help. I don't understand why more people do not seek out hypnotherapy - it can help improve so many areas of life quickly and permanently (in my experience).|
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.|
Can't thank you enough!!!
|Julie Wright on October 06, 2016 at 08:45:49|
|I have been to the clinic for two separate issues, one being the fear of flying the other being anxiety. On both occasions my hypnotherapy sessions helped immensely. Thank you so much Paul, I couldn't if done it without you|
|Gemma Cox on July 04, 2016 at 11:29:10|
|I have seen Paul H on and off for the past 8 years. I first experienced anxiety after the birth of my second child, Paul gave me the knowledge and tools to deal with my anxiety and eventually it disappeared. I had flare ups at different stages in my life yet never as bad as the first episode. Paul always has time and patience, I have recommended hypnotherapy to friends and family. I found it extremely helpful.|
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.
