Irena-Marie Makowska is a mind management coach, practitioner in BWRT® and clinical hypnotherapist.
Irena-Marie Makowska is a certified practitioner in the Virtual Gastric Band VGB.
The VGB hypnotherapy is a non surgical weight loss programme, that has undergone NHS clinical trials*. It is the only weight loss procedure worldwide to undergo these trials.
Most clients lose between 5-7lbs in the first week, and about 1-2lbs in the following weeks - until they reach their desired shape and size. It's safe and has very predictable results.
How it works:
Our subconscious mind is the storehouse of all our memories and past experiences (whether imagined or real). It’s where all habits, beliefs and behaviours are kept. Under hypnosis by ‘speaking’ to the subconscious mind, an individual can change just about anything they wish to - and losing weight is just one of them.
The VGB allows you to eat what you want, however will only enable you to intake smaller portions. And, because it’s not a diet, you won’t feel deprived, miserable or hungry, the issues which cause diets to fail. The VGB effectively negates these issues, you are left with a long term solution to your weight problems.
The medical procedure reduces the physical size of the stomach, and may achieve the same result, however the VGB can be undertaken quickly and privately, without the lengthy delay of hospital waiting lists, and of course carries no costly invasive surgery, no risks and no on-going medical treatment. The clinical hypnotherapy convinces the brain that a gastric band has been fitted around the top part of your stomach creating a smaller pouch, which restricts food intake. The subconscious mind cannot differentiate between imaginary and real events - hence the success rate.
This is a permanent weight loss programme - without dieting.
This four week programme is designed to meet each individual's different needs - as some may wish to lose 7lbs, while others may want to lose considerably more. Those aiming at losing more, will continue to do so safely and naturally, over the coming weeks and months.
All weight loss programmes are tailored to each individual.
* Results based on two UK trials. The first trial saw 24 out of 25 candidates lose an astounding 190 lbs in five weeks. This result attracted the attention of a General Practitioner in Yorkshire, England, and a second trial was conducted with 12 of his patients who had been removed from the NHS bariatric surgery waiting list. Again 95% of the group experienced a positive result.
There are many people, for a variety of different reasons, who would prefer to have their treatment plan in the privacy of their own home, via Skype. This technique is 100% as successful as face-to-face!
The VGB hypnotherapy is completely safe and natural. The results are very predictable and it's a permanent lifestyle change, in that you now enjoy smaller amounts of food and only eat when hungry. You eat to live, not live to eat!
The one hour weekly sessions are organised over four weeks, and includes two personalised audio recordings to support weight loss.
Sample Case Studies:
Lauren Bolakoro Brooks, France. Face-to-face sessions.
"I've lost 12kg and I'm still going!!!! This fabulous woman helped change my life."
Comments Irena: "Lauren was 78.5kg (12.36 stone) when she booked an appointment with me for the Virtual Gastric Band. So far she has lost just under two stone.
Lauren works as a nurse, with a physically demanding work schedule, so eating was a ‘grab it when I can’ scenario. "One of the main issues was overcoming snacking and reaffirming that this programme is not a diet. Lauren lost all this weight gradually, healthily and naturally.
"It's been about a year since Lauren first booked and is still maintaining her weight loss without effort."
Jane, who wishes to keep her surname private, is 44 years old and lives in France, and had her sessions via Skype, known as Skypenosis. “Irena-Marie has totally changed my life. I am in control now and food is no longer in control of me. I've been losing weight steadily, I now eat less than half the amount of food, and I no longer feel hungry whereas before having the band I obsessed about food. I don’t crave gluten (bread, pasta and pizza) or lactose which I have an intolerance to - and I've lost 10kgs (over 1 ½ stone) so far. My mind is clearer, I have lots of energy, no more aches and pains and I sleep better. I used to suffer from chronic depression. And now all aspects of my life have improved 100%.”
“Depression, anxiety and low self esteem is on the increase. We have such high expectation of life and ourselves, our food has so many additives and we have forgotten how to relax”, explains Irena. “To help my clients, I create personalised audios for them on how to create wellbeing in their lives, and overcome blocks that have stopped them living their potential.”
