Hypno-Band » Gastric Band Hypnotherapy in Cardiff

Hypno-Band® is the World Leader in gastric band hypnotherapy and the original Virtual Gastric Band method. Designed for those with a BMI (Body Mass Index) over 30, the Hypno-Band is a safe, risk free and cheap alternative to gastric band surgery.

Using a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Hypnotherapy the programme can help your change your eating habits forever!

A surgical gastric band works by reducing the size of the stomach –  therefore you eat smaller portions and feel full. Through this method it’s possible to lose weight easily. The surgical method does have drawbacks however. It’s very costly, typically between £4000 to £7000 and of course you will need to go through a surgical procedure.


The Hypno-Band system takes you through the process of having a gastric band fitted – only in your mind. By using suggestion and visualisation your mind will be convinced that your stomach has become smaller and you need less food. By eating smaller amounts and less often you will begin to lose weight.

The Hypno-Band system comprises a series of sessions spaced over a 10-12 week period plus CDs or MP3 recordings which you use for reinforcement between sessions.

After an initial assessment (usually done over the telephone) a full dietary and medical history will be taken during the first session. You will also be introduced to hypnosis and experience the fantastic feelings of relaxation, calmness and focus which result from being hypnotized. You will also start to learn news ways of eating and thinking about food. Typically clients start to lose weight from this first session.

In the second session you are taken through the processes involved in the fitting of the virtual gastric band. In subsequent sessions the Hypno-Band virtual gastric band will be fitted and adjusted. In later sessions the process will be reinforced and you will learn a different way of eating. Following the sessions you should use your CD or MP3 to back-up and reinforce the work you have done.

The programme costs £350 including all the sessions, hand-outs and recorded materials plus email and telephone support throughout the programme.

If you’re really committed to losing weight and changing your eating habits the Hypno-Band will help you to achieve your goals.
