There are many so called Hypnotherapists advertising a

Virtual Gastric Band
Don’t be Scammed

virtual gastric band. They claim that by taking you into a state of hypnosis and can give you suggestions that will convince you that they have fitted a virtual gastric band. You will be told that this virtual gastric band will have the same effects a real gastric band. I have never heard such absolute nonsense!  Any self-respecting and properly qualified hypnotherapist will tell you that this is rubbish, the reason being that the very fist rule of hypnotherapy we learn is that any suggestion must be believable. I ask you, is any person gullible enough to believe that a band has been mysteriously fitted into their gut…I think not!

Virtual Gastric Band – The Truth

Therapists offering a hypnotic or virtual gastric band generally will tell prospective clients that they are going to need at least five sessions in order to successfully fit a virtual gastric band. One of the sessions may just be a consultation, a second may be a pre-operation assessment, a third and fourth will be the virtual surgery and the fifth, if the client is lucky will be a session of traditional hypnotherapy for weight loss, and this is the one, if carried out correctly may work.

I am a degree qualified hypnotherapist with over 30 years of successful clinical practice, I wont try and con my clients into a virtual gastric band, but I will offer them traditional weight loss hypnotherapy in only one session. After the therapy their tastes will change, they will start to lose the taste for sweet, unhealthy or fatty foods, they will lose the desire to snack.

What you need to know before trying weight control hypnotherapy

As long as you’re seeing a qualified mental health professional who has extensive training in hypnosis, hypnotherapy for weight loss is considered very safe.

The first thing to consider when choosing a hypnotherapist is the practitioner’s qualifications. Look for a degree qualified mental health care professional — such as a psychologist, psychotherapist, psychiatric nurse practitioner, counsellor, social worker, or medical doctor — who is also a hypnotherapist. Unfortunately, there are many therapists advertising who have nothing more than an online qualification, they will usually claim to have either a diploma or certificate in Hypnotherapy, these are not recognised qualifications.

You can also ask if they’re affiliated with any professional associations, such as the International Hypnotherapy Association.

If for example, a hypnotist uncovers trauma while doing hypnotherapy, they need to know how to treat trauma. In other words, having the education and training to diagnose and treat mental health conditions — which comes from being a degree qualified Psychologist — is a key component in the success of hypnotherapy and of course your safety.
