Well its a new year and so a lot of people will be looking at starting to lose those extra Christmas pounds and prepare for summer holidays.
Having had a life long battle with weight issues, I know first hand how easy it is to gain weight and just how difficult it is to shed those unwanted pounds. It seems as if there is a life time of dieting which always starts with success but then the diet stops and the pounds go back on.
Would you like to lose weight and keep the pounds off? Using hypnotherapy combined with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy could be the key to keeping those pounds off. With my treatment plan you will get one to one sessions tailored made to suit you. An initial consultation to see if you are suitable for the procedure and then to work!
I will provide you with information on healthy eating, tasty recipes, CBT therapy to help you change your attitudes and relationship with food and counselling support for the sometimes difficult feelings and thoughts about yourself as a person carrying extra weight. CD's to help you carry on the work outside of our sessions and on going support if wanted after initial treatment is completed.
So does it work? Dr.Sarah Clarke at the 2nd International Time Perspective Psychology conference at Warsaw University in Poland 2014 presented Clinical Evidence in the form of results of a large clinical trial conducted at the Elite weight loss clinic in Spain. 125 clients were entered into the trial. Out of the 125 people who did the combined CBT and Gastric Band Hypnotherapy , 117 lost weight. One person gained, although the average weight gain was 3.5kg and half gained less than 1kg. Of the 117 who lost weight, the average weight lost was 9.67kg. The average weight lost per month was 1.8kg.
This trial was highly statistically significant for their combined approach and technique. My own technique is also having good results and so if you would like to find out more, please ring for an appointment. Remember there is no magic wand to help you achieve your goals. It does still need you to participate in regular exercise, healthy eating and carrying on work outside of our sessions. Like all treatment, medical or otherwise, there are no guarantees. However if you are a person for who actual Gastric Band surgery is not recommended, this may be for you.
