Understanding virtual gastric band hypnotherapy

Virtual gastric band hypnotherapy has gained significant attention as a powerful and non-invasive approach to weight management. This innovative technique harnesses the power of hypnosis to create the perception of a gastric band procedure without the need for actual surgery.


By exploring how virtual gastric band hypnotherapy works and the benefits it offers, individuals can discover a transformative path to sustainable weight loss.

How virtual gastric band hypnotherapy works

Virtual gastric band hypnotherapy utilises a combination of traditional hypnosis techniques and the concept of a surgical gastric band. The process typically involves a series of personalised hypnotherapy sessions tailored to the individual's unique needs. Here's a detailed breakdown of how it works:

Initial consultation and assessment

The journey begins with an in-depth consultation between myself and the client. During this assessment, I take the time to understand the client's weight management goals, current eating habits, emotional triggers, and psychological factors contributing to their challenges. This comprehensive assessment serves as the foundation for developing a personalised hypnotherapy plan.

Creating the virtual gastric band experience

In subsequent hypnosis sessions, I guide the client into a deeply relaxed state, inducing a state of focused attention and heightened suggestibility. During this receptive state, I skillfully utilise powerful suggestions and visualisation techniques to create the illusion of a gastric band being fitted around the stomach. The client's subconscious mind is convinced that their stomach size has reduced, leading to a feeling of satiety with smaller portions.

Addressing emotional and psychological factors

Virtual gastric band hypnotherapy goes beyond physical portion control by delving into the emotional and psychological aspects of overeating and unhealthy habits. I help the client explore and transform their relationship with food, addressing issues such as emotional eating, cravings, self-sabotaging beliefs, and negative body image.

By rewiring negative thought patterns and cultivating positive associations with food and healthy choices, the client develops a sustainable and empowering mindset.

Establishing new habits and behaviours

Through repetition and reinforcement, virtual gastric band hypnotherapy supports the development of new habits and behaviours that promote sustainable weight management.

The hypnotherapy sessions assist in establishing mindful eating practices, encouraging the client to become more aware of their hunger and fullness cues, make conscious food choices, and embrace a balanced and nutritious diet. Positive reinforcement and motivation enhance the client's ability to stay focused, overcome challenges, and maintain their weight loss journey.

Benefits of virtual gastric band hypnotherapy

Non-invasive and safe

One of the significant advantages of virtual gastric band hypnotherapy is its non-invasive nature. It eliminates the risks associated with surgical interventions, such as infections, complications, and extended recovery time. Individuals can experience the benefits of a gastric band without undergoing invasive procedures.

Sustainable weight management

Unlike fad diets or quick-fix solutions, virtual gastric band hypnotherapy focuses on sustainable weight management. By addressing the underlying psychological factors contributing to weight gain, it helps individuals develop healthier relationships with food and fosters long-term behaviour changes. This approach supports individuals in maintaining their desired weight and reduces the likelihood of weight regain.

Enhanced psychological well-being

Virtual gastric band hypnotherapy not only addresses physical weight concerns but also focuses on improving psychological well-being. By addressing emotional triggers, transforming self-limiting beliefs, and cultivating self-confidence, individuals experience a positive shift in their mindset. This newfound psychological resilience enables them to navigate life's challenges without resorting to unhealthy eating patterns.

Personalised and tailored approach

Virtual gastric band hypnotherapy offers a personalised and tailored approach to weight management. Each session is designed to address the specific needs and challenges of the individual client. I take into account the client's unique circumstances, preferences, and goals, ensuring a customised experience that maximises the potential for success.

Holistic approach to health

Virtual gastric band hypnotherapy promotes a holistic approach to health and well-being. By focusing on the mind-body connection, it encourages individuals to develop a deeper understanding of their body's needs, make conscious lifestyle choices, and adopt a comprehensive approach to their overall health. This holistic perspective creates a solid foundation for sustainable weight management and improved overall well-being.


Virtual gastric band hypnotherapy offers a unique and effective approach to weight management. By combining the power of hypnosis, visualisation, and psychological transformation, individuals can develop sustainable habits, improve their relationship with food, and achieve long-term weight loss success.
