About me

Sandy Robson is a fully qualified Hypnotherapist and NLP Practitioner; she trained with the Contemporary College of Therapeutic Studies and the Erickson Hypnosis School, London. She specializes in Weight Loss and Self Esteem related issues, including emotional, physical and sexual abuse.

Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss with the Virtual Gastric Band.

As the name suggests the system utilizes the concept of a “virtual” gastric band and clinical hypnotherapy, successfully harnessing the power of your subconscious mind to bring about lasting change, a potential that resides in everyone.

The Virtual Gastric Band is a non surgical technique which uses the influence of hypnosis to retrain you to be contented and satisfied with smaller portions of food. It changes how you think about food leading to safe, predictable results. The clinical hypnotherapy convinces the brain that the stomach is full after a certain level of food intake and that there is no need to eat more. This allows the body and digestion to get into a healthy rhythm.

The Virtual Gastric Band is not a diet; we know that diets do not work. The Virtual Gastric Band allows you to eat what you want, but in a reduced, healthy amount, enabling you to establish a natural sense of control. Because it is not a diet, you are not going to feel that dreaded deprived or hungry feeling, these are the issues that cause all those fad diets to fail.

The Virtual Gastric Band effectively eliminates these issues and you are left with a long term solution to your weight problems.

The Virtual Gastric Band has a 95% success rate.

Hypnotherapy for Self Esteem and Trauma

Sandy recognizes that low self-esteem is usually the result of past trauma and abuse. Women can be particularly affected, and she has worked with many clients who have experienced physical, emotional, sexual abuse and rape. She understands that these are deeply sensitive issues and produce devastating repercussions.

Sandy is particularly passionate about working with her clients to uncover and release negative, disempowering beliefs that, in turn, create challenging issues and adverse life circumstances.

“We live 95% of our lives led by the beliefs of the subconscious mind, and 70% of those beliefs are negative. The key to changing our lives is reprogramming the subconscious.” Bruce Lipton PhD. Bestselling Book - The Biology of Belief.

She believes that people deserve to reach their true potential, and not to be blindsided by their early subconscious programming. With Hypnosis, life can take on new meaning and direction. “With Hypnotherapy, the subconscious is no longer sabotaging our best conscious efforts; it is now on our side. We need to make the subconscious our best friend, or it will end up being our ill-fated enemy.”

We have within us the innate power to direct the course of our lives, a vast reservoir of resources within the subconscious that can be utilized for our benefit and ultimate freedom.  We have nothing to lose, but a whole new world to gain.

This is your life, live it to the fullest!

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Information about health conditions (*)

Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.


Additional information

I offer a free 20 minute telephone consultation where we can go through a brief history of your weight struggle or any other issue that needs addressing. I can then answer any questions you have. Do let me know if this would suit you and we can arrange a mutually convenient time.
