At A Happier Life we use hypnosis for weight loss in a number of ways. Hypnotherapy can be used to support eating and exercise plans already in place. Hypnotherapy can be used as a single session method to reinforce the reasons a person needs to lose weight and create internal drive to complete the task, we are also registered to use the Virtual Gastric Band procedure which is a 3 or 4 step process.
What is the success rate of Hypnotherapy Weight Loss?
Studies over many years have shown that when hypnosis is used, any weight loss plans in place last longer due to reinforcement at a sub-conscious level. These studies do not include modern approaches much as the Virtual Gastric Band as this method in particular has gained popularity in more recent times. At A Happier Life we are proud to say that our success rate is approximately 70-80%. See paragraph below.

Virtual Gastric Band, how does it work?
Virtual Gastric Band procedure is scheduled for 4 session over a 4 week period. In some instances only 3 sessions may be required. Clients are given an MP3 to listen to for approximately 10 mins each day and this may change in content each week. Virtual Gastric Band employs hypnosis in each session and then underpins the entire program with mindfulness. The client feels like they have had a physical operation but of course that is not so (and not pain). The effects of the virtual surgery is very profound, clients stop snacking and pay attention to their body’s messages.
“For some years I was troubled with severe anxiety and some delusional episodes. My various mental health professionals in my home town were at a loss to find a solution except for drugs and very long chats. I was recommended to see Gary whilst on holidays in Queensland. It took 3 sessions to permit me to return a normal life and now I am applying Mindfulness with Gary’s assistance via Skype, I am so grateful”.
“Following the death of my mother, I locked myself in my house for days and did not want to come out. A friend recommended me to speak with Gary. I was not sure how he could help me but I was becoming severely depressed. It took 60 minutes for me to see myself and my life with new perceptions. I not only was able to attend my mother’s funeral, my siblings couldn’t believe how at ease and in control I was. I have never experienced feelings like this before”.
“Being a young mum with a busy family, my weight was becoming to depress me and effect my family life. I saw Gary for Virtual Gastric Band therapy and immediately I stopped snacking, started to respect my body and mind and reduced my food intake with ease. I lost 10 kgs in 7 weeks and have kept it off”.
“As an elite golfer I was struggling before a major tournament. It was a National teams event and I was captain. I struggled with my pre-tournament play and was recommended to see Gary. We played to entire round in my chair in office and he gave me ways of handling my stress. We won and I easily outplayed my opponents. I didn’t think it possible but this stuff works” Thanks Gaz!
“I was a bit uneasy about how the hypnosis thing worked and how I would handle it. Two sessions and I was done, one actually but I went back to say thanks and Gary did some reinforcement work and included Mindfulness. I am person who does not smoke ( since October 2017) and never will, it was so easy and I feel great. Thank you”.
Lack of social contact, self-worth, uncertainty, anxiety and depression are just a few of the personal challenges we may face during this time in our lives and our country’s history.
I have found many of my clients are happy and find positive outcomes from our online sessions, in fact online therapy has been around for many years however now at this time, it comes into its own.
What is required for an online session?
You need a good internet connection preferably with a headset but not essential.
You need a quiet space

Given this time a financial stress and need for positive mental health I have devised a package that will give you 8 sessions over 8 weeks. Each session will last between 30-45 mins. The cost of the 8 sessions over 8 week package is approximately the same as just one visit to my rooms! Online has its advantages.
If you wish to STOP SMOKING to reduce your exposure to COVID-19, I have devised a separate online package to suit your needs. This also applies to IBS clients which is a 12 week therapy.
Stay well everyone
