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.

Anxiety-a thing of the past for me. Cannot believe how different I feel after such a short time.
|Julie on May 29, 2018 at 22:00:18|
|I came to have hyponotherpy as my mother had passed away 7 months ago and I was suffering with anxiety, I felt that the anxiety was getting in the way of everything that I was doing even stopping me from greaving my mum. I had my doubts that hyponotherpy could help me but my daughter had recommended SICH as she had used them successfully in the past for panic attack’s. I felt that it was worth a try and that I had to do something. (I didn’t want to go to my doctor as I felt silly and did not want to be put on medication) .i am absolutely amazed at the results of my hyponotherpy sessions, my outlook has completely changed, I feel like “me “again , I have more energy as I’m not wasting it on pointless worrying . I can finally “greave “ my mum in a positive way ... I have learnt that I have control of how I feel and that guilt is really a pointless waste of time. I am writing this a week after my last session and I have had an unbelievable shocking stressful week but I am pleased to report that although it has been a very sad time, I have been able to step up and be strong and help in a productive way through the week without any anxiety.|
The Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy: Thank you, Julie, I'm so glad you are doing well.

|First I was a bit cautious about trying hypnotherapy as I was not sure what to expect. However, as my anxiety was getting worse, I was very keen to try anything to help me get out of the constant state of fear and racing heart and mind. After the very first session I already felt very hopeful about this technique. Paul H. is a very honest and easy to talk to person and despite my very shy personality and deep insecurities, I felt very comfortable discussing all my issues with him. I also very much appreciated all the advice Paul's given me. It was a real eye opener to see how many of my issues have connection to my past and how much I kept holding onto all my negative beliefs all these years. There has been a lot of questions constantly on my mind for many years and I very much appreciated the constant sense of relief I felt after they finally got answered. I found the therapy very effective, helpful and would very much recommend it to anyone who is no longer willing to put up with their anxiety. Again, thank you very much for everything, Paul.|
It worked! Four sessions for anxiety and fear of flying- the sessions were worth every penny.
|Lucy Furlong on May 01, 2018 at 13:26:40|
|I went to see Paul because I was flying to the USA for a holiday, and to get married, and had been struggling with general anxiety disorder and a fear of flying for several years. Four sessions later, three focused on the anxiety, and the final one on flying, I managed to fly to New York, then Houston and then San Fransisco, and had a wonderful wedding day! Not only that but I have also experienced a significant reduction in the daily anxiety I was experiencing, which has made life a whole lot easier and more enjoyable! I am so pleased I discovered the Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy - Paul was friendly and helpful and put me at ease. The sessions were worth every penny.|
The Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy: Thank you Lucy. I hope your married life is all you wanted.
My confidence at work is much improved
|Mr P on April 21, 2018 at 16:04:42|
|Paul Howard has successfully addressed two problems I've had - a fear of public speaking and a lack of confidence at work. The sessions have been very therapeutic - both the way he skillfully got to the root of the problems and then the highly effective hypnosis which I have been able to play back at home. I've felt a different person after each session, able to shed a lot of the negative thoughts that have built up and being much happier in myself. I'm now better equipped to take on challenges without my subconscious self holding me back.|
The Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy: Thank you Peter so glad you are doing well.
Helped me so much
|Jasmine-Amy on April 14, 2018 at 22:12:48|
|I went to Suzannah for help with a really traumatic incident that I was struggling to move on from. I had 4 sessions with Suzannah. Each time I visited the practice, she made me feel so comfortable and at ease. She was not judgmental in any way and made me feel very safe. She was very understanding of my circumstances and really helped me. She recorded all my sessions so I could listen at home too and she adapted the sessions to what I needed help with for that week. After my 4 sessions with Suzannah, she was still available when I needed advice and I’m so grateful for that. Such a lovely woman and a wonderful hypnotherapist. She has helped me so much! I will definitely be returning to Suzannah if I feel I need any other sessions in the future and I would highly recommend Suzannah|
Amazing result after only a few sessions.

|I came to see Paul Howard to help with confidence issues, and social anxiety symptoms. He took his time to listen to all my worries, and concerns, and what I wanted changed. He was clever in finding out where my confidence, and social anxiety issues came from, and made a treatment plan. I felt very comfortable being open with Paul, and it was easy to relax into hypnotherapy sessions. After only 4 sessions, I noticed a huge difference in how I felt about my confidence, and started to live my life more as someone with confidence would. I even applied for a job I would normally have shied away from, and got it ! Would highly recommend seeing Paul for social anxiety issues.|
Child with sleep issues.
|Kate Slatter on March 18, 2018 at 16:04:18|
|I recently brought my daughter Emily to see Suzannah as she has been suffering with nightmares and had been frightened to sleep on her own for around 6 months. Suzannah spent the first part of our session putting Emily at ease and finding out in depth all about her fears. She did a couple of visualisations and then went on to the main hypnotherapy. Emily ‘woke up’ from her session excited and happy, the effect was immediate. We had another session with Suzannah a week later where she worked on Emily’s confidence and self-belief. Since the sessions Emily has been a lot happier in herself and has been sleeping in her own room again. We both really liked Suzannah and I felt that she has a natural way with children. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her and would definitely go back to her should we need any help in the future.|
Clearly a life-changing experience
|Mrs Hendry on March 15, 2018 at 10:33:57|
|I can't recommend highly enough The Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy. I did 3 sessions with Paul Howard confronting my fear of flying and other issues. The sessions were very professional and he spent time beforehand to explain how clinical hypnotherapy works and the entire process of hypnosis . I felt safe and listened to . As a result of the sessions, I no longer fear getting on a plane and have been travelling in comfort ever since. Paul made me understand what causes fear on the first place and how to battle against it. After only 3 sessions, I have better understanding about the world around me and Paul has given me the tools to go thru everyday life without stress. My communication with Paul Howard and the sessions, gave me new strengths and I decided to enrol into one of the courses The Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy runs . Clearly a life-changing experience .|
Anxiety cured and inner peace secured
|Lindsay on February 22, 2018 at 22:48:01|
|Hi, I went to see Paul Howard looking for a new approach to anxiety issues, to be able to relax, embrace calm and to change my responses to unwanted and unsolicited stimuli. After four sessions I am living life differently as I want to live it and I now feel free to make choices when before I was paralysed but an inexplicable fear. I'm very pleased at my decision to try hypnotherapy, being originally very sceptical. Paul has helped me understand the role I play in my own anxiety and I now understand I am not in control. I have felt a deep calm descend over me in the past week which I have never felt before. Well worth the investment. Thank you for giving me a life!|
A success and highly recommend
|Russ on February 15, 2018 at 15:11:48|
|I visited the clinic for hypnotherapy to stop smoking. I saw Suzi Miller who I thought was absolutely fantastic. I was sceptical at first but her joyous manner relaxed me and I was hypnotised on the first attempt. I haven’t smoked for 4 months now and have been back for a top up session as I was thinking about it on a few occasions. I feel fitter, healthier, and have about £250 a month to use on something other than smoking cigarettes. Highly recommend if you’re looking to give up and ask for Suzi, she’s brilliant. Russ.
