I have had the privilege of being trained by Sheila Granger founder of The Sheila Granger Virtual Gastric Band.   This training, together with my experience in hypnosis and NLP, enables me to provide a very comprehensive treatment for my clients, but let me tell you a bit more about the Virtual Gastric Band and my reasons for choosing to utilise this particular product.


There are a lot of hypnotic weight loss plans out there using the gastric band principle.  I only want the best for my clients, so I undertook a lot of research regarding the differences before deciding to train with Sheila Granger.  One of the main reasons for my choice was that The Sheila Granger Virtual Gastric Band had been the method selected to be used as the subject of a formal clinical trial here in the UK, and that as a Trained Practitioner in her Virtual Gastric Band approach, I would be invited to add my experience to this clinical trial approach.


The Virtual Gastric Band is a remarkable weight loss programme, and one which Sheila Granger pioneered in the UK.   As the name suggests, the system utilises the concept of a “virtual” gastric band and clinical hypnotherapy. It successfully harnesses the power that every individual holds within them to make changes to their lives. Many people have already benefited from the Virtual Gastric Band.


The Virtual Gastric Band is a non-surgical technique which uses the power of hypnosis to retrain you to be satisfied with smaller amounts of food.  It changes how you think about food and gives very safe, very predictable results.

The Clinical hypnotherapy convinces the brain that the stomach is full after a certain level of intake, and that there is no need for more food.


It is most definitely NOT a diet – we known that diets only work in the short term.  The Virtual Gastric Band allows you to eat what you want, but will enable you to intake smaller portions.  Because it is not a diet, you won’t feel deprived, miserable of hungry – the issues which cause diets to fail.  As the Virtual Gastric Band effectively negates these issues, you are left with a long term solution to your weight problems.


A medical/surgical procedure reduces the physical size of the stomach, and may achieve the same result, but the Virtual Gastric Band can be undertaken quickly and privately, without the lengthy delay of hospital waiting lists, and of course carries no costly invasive surgery, no risks and no on-going medical treatment




Since undertaking her own small trial groups which proved the effectiveness of the Virtual Gastric Band, Sheila has made it a personal crusade to make this system more available to more people.


Sheila has spent a great deal of time over the last two years talking with medical practitioners, bringing their attention to this safe and viable method of weight loss.


Provisional arrangements are now underway for a pilot study to be carried out this October (2011) in the UK, together with the Humberside Obesity, Nutrition, Education and Innovation Centre.  The partners of this organisation include, The University of Hull, Hull and York Medical School and several members of the pharmaceutical industry.


In addition, a steering group is being formed to organise clinical trials internationally.


In the meantime, Sheila’s trained practitioners are invited to collect data which will form the basis of ongoing research and trials into this area.


Everyday I see hypnotherapy have a positive impact on the lives of my clients and I witness the power of the human mind, working to overcome both physical and psychological issues.


I always go the extra mile for my clients and will tailor your treatment and consultation specifically to meet your individual requirements. This includes a personalised CD, just for you, which you can listen to at home to reinforce the hypnotic suggestion from your session.
