Courses Info Gastric Band Hypnotherapy and Gastric Balloon hypnotherapy

The principle of the therapy is that the client is convinced, at a subconscious level, that a gastric band operation has been performed.

The subconscious mind therefore believes that there has been a major reduction in stomach capacity and the body therefore responds differently to hunger and the amount of food that can be eaten.

It goes without saying that the UK is struggling to cope with the rising number of people who are overweight.

There is a strain on the NHS, this due to the related illnesses now known to be linked to Obesity.

It is not something that has happened overnight; therefore it stands to reason it will not go away overnight.

It is becoming increasingly clear DIETS don’t work. Once into a cycle of dieting it can be very difficult to break that cycle without help… This is where Hypnotherapy can do what it does best… help the root of the problem.

So as Hypnotherapists what can we do to help?

We can use Hypnotherapy to help change eating habits, change lifestyles, and change the way we look at attitudes to food.

As Hypnotherapists we know we have the tools at hand to help almost anyone. There is no magic pill, no overnight success story. Just the Hypnotherapist and the client 50/50

This course is designed to show you how with the knowledge at hand you can help your clients work through their attitude to any weight problems.
