Weighing in at 15 stone Kerry and her 17 stone daughter Amy had tried dieting together numerous times but had very little success in their endeavours. However, after Kerry had a heart attack back in march, both she and her 29 year old daughter Amy had found the motivation they needed to become a healthy weight.
The mother and daughter pair decided to try a different approach to weight loss and booked themselves in for a series of sessions with a Portsmouth hypnotherapy clinic specialising in gastric band hypnotherapy.
Kerry said that she had already booked herself in for a hypnotherapy consultation session when she told Amy, who also decided that it was time to sort her diet out for good.
“We’d talked about possibly having gastric surgery before, but it was too expensive. This seemed like a good cheaper alternative, so I thought I would give it a go.” Said Kerry.
Gastric band hypnotherapy is a process which involves a qualified practitioner training an individuals mind to make them believe they have actually undergone the real surgical procedure and now have a gastric band.
Kerry and Amy had five sessions with their hypnotherapist, who apparently went into much detail about the surgical procedure whilst they were in a hypnotic trance in order to make the procedure more realistic.
The outcome was that the pair both snapped out of their trance believing their stomachs had been reduced to the size of golf balls.
“It’s amazing. I’ve always struggled with my weight, but this is the first diet that showing real results.” Said Amy.
Amy also said that she doesn’t even crave problem foods and she puts this new outlook on food down to the hypnotherapy.
A few months down the line and Kerry who previously weighed 14st 2Ibs is now down to 12st 10Ibs, and Amy has dropped to 14st 11Ibs from 17st 7Ibs.
