Are you ready to lose weight and change your life forever?

Diets don’t work!! Most people who follow a traditional dieting system will lose weight whilst they are on the diet but it’s estimated that 95% of people will put all (and sometimes more) of the weight back on when the diet is over!

Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis

After a restrictive eating plan or diet people usually go back to eating what they did before the diet started (these eating and lifestyle habits are what caused the weight gain in the first place). The weight comes back on and the cycle continues. Also, diets tend to make us more obsessed with food by requiring us to focus on calorie counting, assessing foods for their fat and sugar content and weighing ourselves constantly. Diets can also make us feel we are deprived due to having to emit our favourite foods.


How would you like to lose the weight you want to lose without dieting? And reach your goal weight or size and stay there permanently? The Virtual Gastric Band Programme can help you to do this!


Virtual Gastric Band Hypnotherapy - What Is It? - IT’S DEFINITELY NOT A DIET!!

The Virtual Gastric Band Programme was developed by Hypnotherapist Sheila Granger. It is a potentially life changing treatment which is conducted over a four to six week period and consists of four one-hour sessions designed to bring about permanent change in your eating habits. You will also be provided with support MP3 recordings which will reinforce the treatment both during the programme and afterwards.


How does it work?

The programme is a combination of the concept of a ‘virtual’ gastric band & clinical hypnotherapy. It is a non-surgical technique using advanced hypnosis to retrain you to be satisfied with smaller amounts of food. It positively changes your eating habits and attitude to food, giving safe, predictable results. The clinical hypnotherapy convinces the brain that the stomach is full after an adequate level of food consumption and that there is no need for more.


The programme  is not a short- term fix, it allows you to eat what you want but in smaller portion intake. This means that you won’t feel deprived and therefore gives you a long- term solution to weight control. The treatment works by helping you to permanently change your eating and lifestyle habits by communicating with the subconscious mind. 


An actual surgical gastric band reduces the size of the stomach and may achieve the same results but the Virtual Gastric Band can be undertaken quickly and privately, without long waiting lists, large financial costs and with no risks or need for ongoing medical treatment.




"I am really delighted with my recent course of weight-loss hypnotherapy sessions with Healthy Habits Hypnosis. Since the first session I have lost 15 lbs and several inches around my waist and hips! I shall definitely continue listening to my special recordings, exercising and drinking plenty of water, as instructed by my hypnotherapist Becca. It is really worth it - I’m still losing and am nearly at my target weight!”

- Alexandra 

"A serial dieter since my teens, I had always struggled with counting calories and bland diet regimes until Becca completely changed my approach to food and to weight loss. Despite being what I considered to be a healthy eater, I could never understand why I continued to gain weight rather than lose it. Becca's gastric-band hypnotherapy completely reprogrammed my sub-conscious so that I was able to self-limit my appetite and portion sizes, as well as completely stop grazing in between meals. Willpower was the key rather than changing my actual diet and because I could eat food that I liked and that suited my lifestyle, I was able to maintain it over a prolonged period of time. Becca also provided me with a recording that was specifically aimed at encouraging me to exercise daily to complement the reduction in portion sizes. The result was that after just 3 or 4 sessions I had very quickly lost 10lbs which I have continued to maintain! Gastric-band hypnotherapy was a complete revelation and I would highly recommend Becca- dieting has never been such a pleasure!"

What clients have to say:

Slim, trim, lean

How was the programme developed?

Sheila Granger was working as a hypnotherapist and realized that 80% of her clients were coming to see her for weight control. Her current system was working quite well but she decided to include the Virtual Gastric Band into her existing weight control programme.


To trial the effectiveness of this technique Sheila invited volunteers to take part in a free trial. She was inundated with volunteers but chose 25 people of different shapes, sizes, age ranges and gender and treated them in a group setting.  Because this was a less personalized way of working Sheila envisaged a success rate of approximately only 40%.


However, after seeing the group for just three one hour sessions she was amazed and thrilled to record that they lost over 14 stones between them in only three weeks! All but one reported a significant change in their eating habits!


Since this time the programme has helped many clients to lose weight and Sheila’s aim is to see the NHS refer people for hypnotherapy weight control, allowing all to benefit and addressing the UK’s increasing obesity problem.

Emotional Eating


One of the reasons that people fail to achieve weight loss is emotional or comfort eating. We don’t always eat to satisfy hunger, sometimes we also reach for food to deal with stress, unwanted feelings such as sadness, loneliness or when we’re bored. This type of habit can be difficult to change, especially as after eating we feel guilty and then a vicious circle is created. We feel down so we eat, then the guilt sets in. Because we feel even worse the temptation is to eat more to make ourselves feel better and then there's more guilt and so the cycle continues.


To deal with emotional/comfort eating and change this unwanted behaviour pattern for good a session of RTT (Rapid Transformational Therapy) may be advised in addition to this VGB Programme. RTT includes effective techniques to break this habit, enabling you to fully benefit from the programme and if you follow the guidelines you will attain your weight loss goals.


How much weight will I lose?

The average weight loss is 3-6 lbs in the first week and normally 1-2 lbs each week after that. This will vary from person to person.

"Having suddenly put on weight over a relatively short period of time, I felt very vulnerable and needed a rudder on my eating habits when I had the opportunity to work with Becca.  She held me in this and explained very clearly what it means to lose weight through the Gastric Band method but via hypnotherapy.  For me this was a fantastic genius way to find myself again.  The thought of putting my body through surgery to achieve the same thing, felt totally unnecessary.  So I was very excited about trying it out.   Becca was fantastic, she was very supportive and professional of me in my process and I began to lose weight.  What I really like about the Gastric Band hypno'  is that it does not involve dieting or eating especially different foods.  The emphasis is more on lifestyle changes which I experienced as eating for joy and changing my relationship to food.  Thank you Becca."

"I really enjoyed the hypnotherapy course. It was very relaxing and Becca put me at my ease. I found the effect was mainly in being more mindful of what I eat and taking my time to realise that I had eaten enough. I would thoroughly recommend the Virtual Gastric Band Program."
