*I’ve had many clients come to me for the Virtual Gastric Band Program, and the success rates have been wonderful. It’s not a crash diet program so the results are not so dramatic as to be unsustainable; however I’ve seen clients make lifestyle changes that they previously thought were not possible for them and what’s more they’ve made the changes without that inner struggle that we’ve all come to associate with the dreaded diet merry-go-round.
This program is not about shedding kilo’s and then slipping back into old ways because the ‘Fear of Missing Out’ and the feeling of being deprived become too much; this program is designed to change your relationship with food and often your relationship with yourself for good. It's about moderation, balance, eating mindfully and making good choices. You can still enjoy the occasional indulgence, especially given all the wonderful cafes and restaurants that Melbourne has to offer, but you learn to make better choices as your default.
Some clients come to me for the 4 sessions which are spread out over approximately 6 weeks and find that they are comfortably settled into their new mindset by week 6. Some clients opt to return for top up sessions thereafter; these would typically be clients with a bit more weight to lose and people that have found that they are getting so much out of the sessions in terms of personal growth, confidence and self –discovery that they want to continue the journey, sometimes tackling other issues like Fear of Flying, Fear of Public Speaking and Assertiveness at work (to name a few) as they find their confidence is growing and they're ready to face old fears and take on new challenges.
For some people being overweight is associated with very complex emotional issues and for these people I do recommend that they continue seeing me to receive the support and feedback that I as a trained Professional Counsellor as well as a Clinical Hypnotherapist trained in Advanced Virtual Gastric Band techniques can offer. Weight issues can go hand in hand with Depression, Anxiety and or Traumatic experience so it’s important that the underlying issues be addressed to ensure the best possible outcome and long term success. Band-aid solutions don't last the distance.
As a skilled Hypnotherapist I offer you not only a cognitive experience but help you create the emotional experience that is required to create a compelling sense of commitment and motivation that will enable you to stay on track to achieve your weight loss goals. This is how Hypnotherapy differs from other approaches. Hypnotherapy can create an incredibly tangible future in the mind and emotional experience of the client, a future where you have achieved your goal of losing weight you enjoy the benefits, you know in all of your senses how great it will feel to feel lighter both physically and emotionally, and once those feelings are experienced through the power of your imagination, the changes that are required to get there in reality seem much less overwhelming to you.
This is an incredibly rewarding journey for me to accompany my clients on, knowing what people that follow my weight loss programs incorporating the Virtual Gastric band achieve for themselves and how it improves their life continues to inspire and gratify me. I have no hesitation in recommending the programs to anyone wishing to lose weight and /or adopt healthier lifestyle habits or to tackle the deeper issues that may be keeping them stuck.
