HypnoBand or Weight Management?


Call today to make an appointment to reach your goal weight on 077 177 48203.

Different weight management programmes are available and during the initial consultation we will discuss in more depth which programme is most suitable to you.

Through Advanced Hypnotherapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and NLP you will be able to manage your weight with Ghitta based in a few locations in London Bridge, Elephant & Castle and Old Street.

Managing your weight is easier than you think. Hypnotherapy works with the subconscious mind – your feelings, patterns, behaviours and unconscious motivations. It works on a deeper level for you wanting to feel healthier rather than just thinking you should be healthier. It makes it possible for you to change your thinking patterns and gain control over cravings.

While diets and nutrition places the focus on what you eat and how often, hypnotherapy for weight loss changes how you feel about what you eat. For example – on a diet you might drink a health smoothie and wish you were eating a cake, but with hypnotherapy you can learn to enjoy the smoothie and not give the cake a second thought!

The Real Hypno-Band
Introducing the Hypno-Band. The world leader in gastric band hypnotherapy for weight loss! With over 350 Licensed Practitioners in 15 countries.


What is the HYPNO-BAND weight loss system?

The HYPNO-BAND System is a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and hypnotherapy techniques that helps you explore, analyse and change your eating habits. Then using the mind/body connection we fit a “virtual gastric band” to your stomach, helping you to eat less and less often.

Does it involve surgery?

No! the HYPNO-BAND system is a non-invasive behaviour changing method using the techniques of hypnotherapy and cognitive behavioural therapy.

Does it hurt?

On the contrary. The HYPNO-BAND procedure is extremely relaxing and pleasurable.

Are there side effects?

No. There are no known side effects associated with undergoing this procedure.

So it’s safe?

Yes! the HYPNO-BAND system is perfectly safe.

Will I be under the hypnotherapists’ control?

Never. No hypnotherapist can make you do anything you do not want to do nor make you behave in a way you would not normally behave.

Am I suitable for the HYPNO-BAND weight loss system?

If you are over-weight and really want and are committed to losing weight then you should be suitable. The only exception would be if there is a physiological reason for your weight problems or if you are taking certain medications. Your suitability will be assessed at the initial session.

Will it work for me?

The key to success is YOU! No weight loss system will work unless you are committed to losing weight. You must be prepared to change your eating habits and life-style. If you are totally serious about losing weight then it will certainly work for you. The HYPNO-BAND system provides you with the tools and ability to lose weight and maintain a healthier body.

So how do I start?

Search for a Licensed Practitioner in your area by using our Find a Practitioner search or contact us via our contact page and we will start the process.

Is it guaranteed?

Like any medical or therapy procedure there can be no definite guarantees. Even a surgeon cannot guarantee that an actual gastric band will work. It should be noted that it is YOU that holds the key to losing weight. No system will work if you are not 100% committed. The mind is a very powerful instrument and by using the HYPNO-BAND system you will have the tools and power to change your eating habits. The only way to lose significant amounts of weight is to eat less! The HYPNO-BAND system helps you to change behaviour and life-style which in turn provides you with the ability to lose weight and stay that way!

What will happen in the sessions?

Hypno-Band is a 5 session programme which costs £450 + £50 for the initial session. Sessions are usually held 2-4 weeks apart, with the exception of the last session which is about 4/6 weeks after session 4.

How Does Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis Work?

You will be prepared for the Virtual Surgery by having several sessions of hypno slimming prior to the hypno band procedure and by the time you undergo your hypnosis session you will be fully equipped both mentally and physically.  You will be induced into a hypnotic trance and your fully qualified hypnotherapist will take you through the procedure as if the operation is actually happening.
You will smell the antiseptic smells of the hospital hear the sounds of the operating theatre and feel the operation taking place as a virtual experience.  The subconscious mind is very powerful and also very susceptible and gullible and a practiced hypnotherapist can engage that part of your mind and make suggestions that, as long as you allow it, it cannot resist.  Hypnotic weight loss is fast becoming a viable and cost effective alternative to surgery.

‘Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis ‘v Actual Gastric Band Surgery

Actual surgery has a variable success rate and lots of those who have been operated on actually put weight on after the operation.  The problem with surgery is that the recipients’ mind stays the same and the issues that led to the overeating are still in situ.

Hypnosis deals with the mind and the problems that caused the overeating in the first place.  Buying a hypnosis CD off the internet might work for some but it may not work for those with food issues and those who comfort eat.

Many obese people eat because of emotional issues and these will not be addressed in the operating theatre or by listening to a generic CD.  There is no doubt that many people benefit from the actual surgical procedure but a great deal of people struggle as their underlying unhappiness and issues have not been dealt with.  Working with a hypnoslimmer hypnotherapist one to one can help you to overcome these kind of issues.
