Irena-Marie Makowska, certified practitioner in the Virtual Gastric Band
(sessions now available via Skype)
Our programme has undergone clinical trials* by the NHS and is the only gastric band hypnosis, worldwide, to undergo clinical trials.
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 ensures 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 - it is about changing your thought patterns around food. Instead of thinking about food most of the time, as all diets make you do, you think about food, and eat, when you are hungry.
A client recently told me that on her last diet she decided not to socialise for one year, so she would not be "tempted". With the Virtual Gastric Band those issues will not come into your thought pattern, because it is no longer a subconscious thought. You are free to enjoy food without the angst or using it to combat boredom, loneliness, comfort - whatever your reason is.
Most clients lose half a stone in the first week, thereafter 1-2 lbs per week, until they have reached their goal (ongoing after the sessions).
The programme is run over four weeks, with one treatment a week. Each client will receive a personalised 'support' recording to listen to every day for 28 days. After the course, another recording is provided.
There are other alternatives to the timescale, and if interested, please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note if there are any other issues you wish to deal with, such as alcohol, we can address that as well.
* Results based on 2 UK trials. The first trial saw 24 out of 25 candidates lose an astounding 190lb in 5 weeks. This result attracted the attention of a General Practitioner in Beverley, East Yorkshire, England. The second trial was conducted with 12 of his patients who had been removed from the NHS surgery waiting list. Again 95% of the group experienced a positive result.

This programme is tailored for those suffering from IBS, period pain and pre-menstrual tension, pre and post operative, arthritis... to name a few..
A free personalised support recording can be provided.
Past Life Regression
This all depends on your belief system. I am curious as a person, and I thought it was more for 'entertainment'. After experiencing it myself and also with clients, it can be an invaluable tool in realising and overcoming current issues or events in your life.
The subconscious mind cannot distinguish between real and imagined memories, so it is unimportant if the 'past life experience' is real or not. If it serves to help you resolve conflict or illness or depression, then when not.
All consultations are free and tend to be about half an hour. During this session we discuss your 'case history' and what you would like to change in your life, and whether I can help you achieve that.
This session can be face-to-face, by telephone or via Skype video call.
