Losing weight is actually easy. Your body wants to lose weight, naturally, to return you to a healthy state of being. Our bodies are wonderful things.
The difficult part is motivation, isn’t it? Well, that’s where we step in to help!
“I’ll start my diet on Monday,” is often muttered on a Friday night before a weekend long binge. Come Monday morning and, feeling poorly and no little guilty for the weekend’s indulgences, motivation is sadly lacking and old habits continue. Or, as often happens, motivation is high on the Monday morning, and a week’s worth of reasonably healthy eating is then overwhelmed by the following weekend’s indulgences.
Every person has their own story, and it is motivation that sits at the centre of it.
Now … before anyone asks … it’s great to feel good about yourself, isn’t it? Imagine a time when you felt really great about you … not your body, not how much you weighed … just about how good it feels to be you! It is that feeling that we are aiming for.
Nobody here will be telling you that you need to weigh X or Y kg because that is the statistical average. If a person is happy, and they have found a weight that suits their lifestyle, we know we have succeeded. Experience shows us that most of our clients are happiest when they reach a comfortable level … not necessarily their medically perfect weight.
Everyone is different, and that is why we create weight management programmes that are often unique for each person.
And … as far as motivation is concerned … you will have more of that than you’ve ever had before!
We provide hypnotherapy supported weight management programmes. We help you to reduce your weight in a steady and manageable fashion, so that when you have reached that happy place about how you feel about yourself, you can manage it easily.
We don’t want you to lose weight.
We are programmed, psychologically speaking, to try to recover anything that we lose. Go ahead and try losing your car keys, or your phone, or your wallet and you will soon experience the anxiety, fretting and focus on bringing back that missing item. Now, imagine how that same reaction kicks in when we ‘lose’ weight. This is one of the reasons why we have such a financially powerful diet industry in the UK … because we have that unerring tendency to ‘find’ and ‘return’ to us that which we have ‘lost’. You’ve heard of yo-
A reduction in your weight is permanent. That is what you are going to achieve.
Notes on the above:
1. The person ‘hosting’ or arranging a Group session is treated FREE OF CHARGE … Yes!!! … FREE. We recognise that women benefit greatly from the shared emotional experience of losing weight with a group of friends, and so we really want to support this.
2. We are happy to help you, the ‘host’, to find a suitable location for your group meetings and, indeed can make all of the arrangements on your behalf by negotiation. We can discuss the terms and location when you make your booking.
3. All personal, one to one, and two person bookings will be conducted in our clinic. If your health is such that a home visit would be preferred, this can be arranged by negotiation. There will be additional charges for this service.
Perhaps this isn’t relevant for you, but quite a few of our customers have asked for longer term support to really help them embed the new behaviours that they have established from going through one of our plans.
We are now offering an extended weight management plan when you attend any one of our weight reduction programmes above. Once we have finished the initial plan, we will then meet once per month for the remainder of a twelve month period. During these sessions we will develop your self-
You’ll succeed … knowing that you have a top team in your corner, supporting you every step of the way!
This offer is open to both individuals and groups, and is available for the heavily discounted price of only £300.
[Please note: the “host goes free” offer also applies to this]
This may come as a surprise to you, but pretty much all of our clients are human! Yes … it makes absolutely no difference to us whether you are a man or a woman. We will welcome you with open arms in any event.
Seriously, of course, we recognise that there are different psychological reasons why men put on weight, compared to women, just as there are differences in where the weight will sit on each person. The relationship between food and emotion is a critical factor to consider and is something that we can positively help with.
Some of the differences that we consider:
Understanding these, and other, differences helps us to tailor our services to suit anyone who comes to us for help.
People love to have options, don’t they?
One of the things that you will love about hypnotherapy is the flexibility that it can offer when it comes to helping you to reduce your weight permanently.
It’s all about motivation, yes? Hypnotherapy can increase your motivation to levels that you’ve never before experienced, keeping you on the path to success.
But … what if you want more? Maybe you, like the majority of our clients now, have heard of Gastric Band Hypnotherapy?
There are a variety of different names it is sold under: Hypno-
The power of the hypnotic gastric band technique is that it really convinces your mind that your stomach has shrunk, thus dramatically reducing your intake of calories.
There are high instances of stress eating … ‘invisible’ calories that we consume when we are stressed and eat without realising it. Hypnotherapy can help manage the stress also.
A recent study by NHS Lothian (The Lothian Health and Lifestyle Survey) has published results that are quite shocking.
60% of adults in West Lothian are either overweight or obese (25%). This has serious psychological consequences. People are much less likely to accept that they have health risks brought about by their weight when the majority of people around them are also overweight. This is called ‘normalising’ the problem, i.e. it’s not a problem if everyone is the same!
These statistics are mirrored across Scotland, with figures from The Scottish Health Survey showing that 65 per cent of the adult population are overweight and 27 per cent obese. They also, unsurprisingly, show an increase in Type II diabetes across the country.
Does any of that matter?
No … and here’s why.
Only you need help to lose weight … not your town, your neighbour or your entire country … only you. Only when you are ready, absolutely ready and determined, to make this change in your life should you come to us. If you’re not … it won’t work. Fact.
The hypnotic techniques used with Gastric Band Hypnotherapy work by helping you only to eat small portions of food and adjust your thought processes to keep you feeling fuller for longer.
Over the course of the five sessions (or four if you elect not to have the Gastric Band Hypnotherapy session itself) you will be guided to learn new eating habits and, should you elect to have the Gastric Band session itself, your mind will be “re-
Our weight management programme, including Gastric Band Hypnotherapy, is totally unlike any other diet concept today, it literally changes your internal relationship with food, allowing you to take control and prevent yo-
This may not be how you feel, but many of our clients have felt out of control with their eating habits and came to us feeling desperate to make changes. As long as you genuinely want to reduce your weight, then this system is powerfully effective. So, yes, you are absolutely suitable for this procedure if you really want to become slimmer.
Some people, naturally, will not get the results they expect. When this has happened, our findings support other studies into the technique which highlight that 10% of clients just don’t follow the rules and a further 5% have a ‘hidden’ psychological reason for wanting to remain fat, so the mind doesn’t accept the program. We can reassure you that, if you fall into either one of those categories, we can treat the problem that stops you succeeding if you would like us to help with that.
Other than that, as with any hypnotherapy, there are just a small percentage of people who have medical conditions, are taking medication or have deep rooted psychological issues preventing them from succeeding. Generally, we would not continue with these individuals as clients if we identify any of these issues at our initial consultation.

“… you’ve made me a man again! I can’t thank you enough, and neither can Mrs ******! I wasn’t able to perform [sexually], and have had it like that for years. Going back and finding out why this happened meant that I could deal with it. My only issue is that the sessions aren’t long enough. I felt so good that I didn’t want to come out [of hypnosis]”
“I don’t know how to write this, so bear with me. For years, … I’ve pretended to orgasm so often that … I didn’t think it was even possible. You blew that idea out of my head alright. When I think about it it feels weird. I go to ‘sleep’ and wake up able to have shuddering orgasms but I feel so good about it that I just disregard my own surprise. I will certainly be recommending you.”
“Colin, we’re just back from holiday … I did the self hypnosis trick you showed me and imagined the flight as I wanted to experience it. It was great to be part of the trip this time … I must admit that I felt a little anxious in preparation for the holiday, but stuck with your ‘homework’ and it paid off big time. Thanks, buddy, for all your help.”
“I’ve tried the patches, tried the gum, and it didn’t make a blind bit of difference. I was stunned by what you were telling me in our session, couldn’t believe it, but you took the time to explain it and it really hit home. I AM A NON SMOKER … and I love it. Thank you so much. Can you please tell me why is this not available on the NHS?”
Caroline, East Calder
“Thank you, Colin, for giving me back my self confidence. You know what it’s like and you gave me the encouragement to lose my weight. This time, the weight is falling off me!I’ve lost almost two stones already … I feel in control again.”
