Levels of obesity have been on the rise for decades now.
The New Zealand Health Survey 2019/20 found that around 1 in 3 adults (aged 15 years and over) were obese- that’s 30.9%.

Established in 2010, and now with over 2500 trained practitioners in 16 countries, The Virtual Gastric Band is a psychology-based hypnotic weight loss programme, designed to simply and radically change how you think about food.
The Virtual Gastric Band is NOT a diet and does NOT involve deprivation.
This hypnotherapy weight loss programme focuses on the resetting of your eating habits; it highlights any unhelpful food associations and helps you make small, realistic changes that you can live with easily.
It uses hypnosis and other psychology-based skills to train your mind to think about food more pragmatically- and results in steady, sustainable weight loss, without dieting and completely naturally.
For many people, dieting and exercising alone aren’t enough to keep the weight off. This hypnotherapy technique is used to apply a virtual gastric band that can help people lose weight by altering their state of mind, with no invasive, physiological impact. For many people, the urge to eat fattening and unhealthy foods stems from their attitudes towards food and these attitudes can be altered with hypnosis to reflect the change you want to achieve. This is what makes hypnosis an excellent method to address some of the underlying reasons for weight gain.
The Virtual Gastric Band alters your responses to food and encourages you to be satisfied on smaller portions.
The new habits you will develop mean that you can be free from thinking about food all of the time and will enable you to enjoy the food you do eat so much more!
If you want to achieve your desired body size and shape and make positive changes to your eating patterns easily and effortlessly, then this program may be for you.
Whether you have just a few kilos to discard or multiple kilos, The Virtual Gastric Band is suitable for almost everyone.
Please be aware that in order for this programme to be successful for you, you must be fully committed, have a strong desire to make positive changes in your eating habits to reinforce a healthy approach to food- this is NOT a diet.
How the programme works:
The hypnotherapy is delivered via four sessions spread over a six to eight week period, to help change your mind set on food and reinforce long-term behaviour change, including smaller portions and regular exercise.
The sessions are highly personalised and tailored to you as an individual- because we are all different and unique.
The hypnosis will address issues that have perhaps derailed your weight management in the past, including snacking and comfort eating.
Your sessions can be carried out in person but may be available over Zoom in the near future.
Hypnosis for weight loss is incredibly safe, effective and popular, and provides a fantastic life-long solution for those who struggle with food habits.
You will be asked to follow some simple guidelines at home. You will also be given hypnotherapy audio to listen to between sessions which will reinforce the changes that you will be making.
After the four session programme, should you desire extra support as you continue your journey, sessions can be arranged to meet long term goals.

Those receiving virtual gastric band hypnotherapy will not only be able to shed the pounds, they will help prevent further health complications, some of them long-term, that can arise from being overweight or obese. It also instils a healthier attitude towards diet and lifestyle so that users can change their life for the better without resorting to dieting or surgery, which can sometimes be disruptive to peoples’ lives.
One potential side effect of surgery is the risk of having to take time off work to recover, whereas employing The Virtual Gastric Band Technique means you will have no recovery time to deal with afterwards- nor any of the pain and discomfort sometimes experienced after surgery.
Increasing levels of self-confidence and self-belief are linked to this method because hypnotherapy treatment entails forming a positive body image.
For many people, gastric band hypnotherapy is about empowering them to make the right decisions to lead a healthy lifestyle and keep their bodies trim. In essence, it is a lifestyle change that is non-invasive and equips the patient with techniques that they can then go on to employ in the future. We know it works from clinical trials (results produced a 95% success rate), making it an excellent form of therapy for those struggling with their weight.
