Can you be hypnotised to lose weight?

Without a doubt, one of the most common uses of hypnotherapy, if not the most common, is to lose weight. In fact, I would see more people who are interested in losing weight, or have difficulties with maintaining healthy eating habits and exercise, than for any other concern. Healthy eating and exercise are so fundamental to longevity and quality of life, that they both arise regularly for everyone. Hypnosis is an excellent means by which anyone can get their eating and exercise habits on track.

How do you hypnotise yourself to lose weight?

While there are steps you can take to hypnotise yourself to achieve many things besides losing weight, the truth is it is far easier to consult with a qualified hypnotherapist who not only hypnotises you to lose weight, but also teaches you the steps you can take to reinforce the relevant hypnotic suggestions to help you achieve your weight loss goals.

The Gastric Band Hypnotherapy Program that I offer not only includes 4 hypnotherapy sessions, but also a support CD which you can play at home as a form of self hypnosis that reinforces the sessions with the therapist (me). After the fourth session, I also provide a personalised CD that you can use in place of self hypnosis to help you maintain your new healthy eating habits, as well as motivate you to exercise. The overall program is fantastically well organised and successful. Find out more here:

How much does it cost to see a hypnotherapist?

Fees can vary from $160 per hour up to $330 depending on the experience and qualifications of the Hypnotherapist. I try to keep my fees reasonable, although some say generous, at $180 per hour. I try to gear the fees I charge so that most people in the main will see their therapy through and not be thwarted because of a lack of funds. If you decide to do the four sessions of the Virtual Gastric Band Hypnotherapy, then the fee would need to cover the 4 sessions and 2 CDs.  This may work out to be around $720, depending on the therapist.

What is a virtual gastric band?

In essence, what you see in the picture is the premise of a Virtual Gastric Band. In other words, with the help of hypnosis, your unconscious mind can be convinced that you have had one of these bands placed around your stomach, making it feel much smaller than prior the hypnotic procedure. Despite your knowing it is virtual, our unconscious mind, with the help of hypnosis, will generally accept something designed to help you improve your health and wellbeing. When you add in the usual advice for behaviour with a real band, you end up with the same result without invasive surgery.

Can you lose weight with hypnosis?

Undoubtably, hypnosis has proven to be a very successful means to rectifying behaviour that leads to poor health as a result of lifestyle habits, including eating and exercise. If you have 40 Kg to lose, then hypnosis can help you lose it.  I have personally seen people literally lose an enormous amount of weight with the help of hypnosis. If you want to lose the weight, why would hypnosis not result in weight loss?

A Hypnotic Gastric Band is exactly the same as a Virtual Gastric Band.

The means less food can be eaten and so weight loss results. This has proven to be a highly successful means to losing weight.
