Weight gain happens when the amount of calories in the food you eat is greater than the amount of calories your mind & body uses up during activity. Most commonly this happens because of stress, leading to poor eating & exercise habits. Eating too much or too often, or eating the "wrong" type of food can lead to weight gain. But there are so many different diets available, many with conflicting information, that what exactly constitutes "wrong" foods depends largely upon which food "expert" authors you decide to believe. Weight gain can lead to obesity.

Obesity itself is not a disease, but rather is a symptom of pre-existing diseases & health issues, such as trauma, stress, anxiety, resulting in unhealthy eating & exercise habits. Obesity can also be a pre-cursor to diseases such as diabetes, hypertention (high blood pressure) & heart disease.

Over a decade ago, with the rise of the global obesity epidemic, surgeons created a way to reduce the useable size of the stomach, by the surgical implantation of a band near the top of the stomach. The reduced size of the stomach enables only small meals to be eaten, thus promoting weight loss.

Unfortunately, not everyone is suitable for the surgical gastric band procedure, ironically because their weight is already too high to risk anesthesia or the life-saving surgery that could save them. Then, along came a wonderful idea from British hypnotherapist Sheila Granger. Why not let the mind act "as if" the body has a gastric band in place, using hypnosis? And so was born the Virtual Gastric Band. Clinical trials in the UK are demonstrating success rates of 95% for the people who have used it!

Now, the Virtual Gastric Band is here in New Zealand, and I have been trained to use it by Sheila Granger herself.

In order for you make an informed decision, I am offering free complementary consultations of 30 minutes duration, so that you can ask me questions about how hypnosis, hypnotherapy and the Virtual Gastric Band Program can help you to lose weight. After this free complementary consultation of 30 minutes duration, you are under no obligation to purchase 1 of our paid Virtual Gastric Band Packages unless you choose to. But, if should decide to proceed, then we offer 3 Virtual Gastric Band Packages (Gold, Silver & Bronze) from which you can choose the 1 which best suits your budget and your weight loss needs.

As a Clinical Hypnotherapist I do not make diagnoses about your health, so I advise you to see your doctor if you have any of the above issues.

We are approved providers of the Virtual Gastric Band (VGB) developed by UK Clinical Hypnotherapist Sheila Granger, for which clinical trials demonstrate a 95% success rate. The 4 sessions of VGB are offered through Andrew Hardwick Hypnotherapy as our basic Bronze Package. We also offer Silver & Gold Packages for discerning clients who may like a little bit more too
