About me



Virtual Gastric Band & Weight Loss Specialist, Phobias, Anxiety, Stress

I am a  Virtual Gastric Band specialist trained by Michelle Hague of the London College of Clinical Hypnosis.  You may have recently watched the Channel 4 programme "How to Lose Weight Well", where one of the participants went for virtual gastric band hypnosis, and lost a significant amount of weight.  The method I use is very similar. 

I use this method because I find many of my clients report significant weight loss (varying between 3-8lbs in a week) even for those who have found weight loss extremely challenging in the past.   Due to the fact that the virtual gastric band acts on the subconscious mind and convinces your brain that you are full, you tend to eat smaller portions, just as you would after the surgical procedure.  The biggest problem people have is overcoming Self-Doubt.   Most people have been on a diet and have put the weight back on, so the concept not counting calories or obsessing about food can be very strange at first. 

It is not a diet and the program runs over four sessions plus I am available for ongoing support, mentoring and counselling out of hours.  CDs are also provided and these must be listened to as part of the therapeutic process.   I also run sessions AFTER the procedure to offer clients support until they get to their target weight, which although optional I recommend until you get to target weight.

This is a message/testimonial just received from one of my Gastric Band clients:  "Marie, I've just weighed myself and I have lost 7kgs in 12 days!"   And from another client, "I don't quite understand what is happening but I am losing weight without thinking about it".   (Weight loss 12 lbs over 3 weeks). 

I treat a great many other issues, and the number of sessions required for these is variable and can often depend on underlying issues which may have to be treated too.  These can vary from one person to another.  You may find that you experience positive change after only one or two sessions (eg phobias), or you may require more than this, (for example anxiety, addictions, relationship/sexual problems or issues which have a deep underlying cause).

Before I take a new client on, I would invite you in for a free consultation so that a proper assessment can be made before treatment commences.  Consultations are totally confidential, but it also my practice to contact your GP in writing to inform them you are undergoing hypnotherapy to ensure there are no contraindications as far as they are concerned.

Hypnotherapy or any kind of therapy is not inexpensive  but many people find that once their problem has been identified, treatment has begun and behavioural changes begin to be seen, that the initial outlay is well worth it.   However, the subconscious mind is very powerful and you can acquire the tools and the ability to achieve your goals.  It will be up to you to utilise them and as with any medical treatment, medications or surgical procedure, there are no guarantees.  I can guarantee that I will do everything I can to help you achieve your goals if you work with me and you are committed.

I run a professional, friendly and caring service from my home in Bearsden, Glasgow..
