I will want to speak with you when you are ready to schedule your initial appointment, but I am sure you have questions about how this all works.
I offer a variety of sessions and the most popular ones are Hypnosis Weight Loss and Stop Smoking Hypnosis. These days I am seeing more people for weight loss, and
the majority of those people decide to work with the Gastric Band Hypnosis Program.
How Does It Work?
First it is important to understand that everyone does not qualify for the Gastric Band Hypnosis Program. The first thing I ask people on the phone is how much weight they want to lose.
You need to be at least 40-50 pounds overweight to qualify for Gastric Band Hypnosis, LAP-BAND® surgery requires that you be at least 100 pounds overweight. One client was told by the doctor that she needed to
gain 20 pounds to qualify for the surgery. It is also important that you really do want to lose the weight for yourself, some people are just following the suggestion of their doctor and just are not motivated to reduce their weight.
So, the first thing I ask people when I speak with them is how much weight they would like to lose.
The sessions are available in my office in Dallas, Texas as well as over Skype, and they typically last about 1.5-2 hours, though the first session may run a little longer.
We start out by talking, and this is very important, as it provides me with the ability to create a session for you and not a generic cookie-cutter session. This is important
because it will provide us with the opportunity to deal with your problems in terms of weight gain and weight reduction. We'll discuss your meals, what you eat, how much you eat and also
other times you eat. Many people eat for a variety of reasons, and a lot of those reasons is invalid. The only reason you need to eat is to provide fuel for your body, yet people eat out of boredom,
when they are sad, when they are happy, to reward themselves, and the list goes on and on.
With this program, our goal is to change your eating habits so that you become a conscious eater and only eat to supply fuel for your body. All of these triggers that prompt you to eat are
stored within a part of your mind called the subconscious mind. They are programs, like computer programs, and they cannot think or judge or analyze, they only react. You see part of what I just described
is the basis of how the subconscious mind works. The subconscious mind is like a recorder and a playback device. It records information and then it plays it back. So when smoker is stressed, the 'I am a Smoker'
program says, have a cigarette. People who eat for the wrong reasons will often eat because of negative or even positive emotions. Many people eat comfort foods, to help them feel better. Of course this does not work,
although it may feel as though it does while you are eating, but after you are finished, your problems are still there.
With hypnosis we can access the subconscious mind and make changes to these programs, so that you no longer react by reaching for the foods you know you should not be having. I stress to everyone that there is
more to reducing your weight than the Gastric Band Hypnosis session. I make sure my clients understand that Gastric Band Hypnosis is a powerful reinforcement to their weight loss program and not a magic bullet.
Why Are There Multiple Sessions?
Every time you enter into hypnosis, you go deeper than the time before. By having multiple sessions before the actual Gastric Band Hypnosis session you are able to learn to go deeper and deeper into hypnosis.
Dave Elamn, a well known Hypnosis instructor from the 1950's and 1960's, who by the way was one of my father's hypnosis instructors, determined that it is true that each time you go into hypnosis you do go deeper
than the time before. So the multiple sessions help you to be able to go so deep that by the time we get to the surgery session, which is session 4, you will be so deep that you will actually believe you experienced the actual
Gastric Band Surgery. The subconscious mind, since it is unable to judge, cannot tell the difference between something that is imagined and something that actually happened, so it accepts the fact that you have actually had the
Gastric Band Surgery.
In addition to learning to go deeper into hypnosis, the first 3 sessions allow us to begin working on your eating habits. This include reducing your portions, working on the quality of food you eat,
and discovering the root cause of your emotional eating. While we prepare for the Gastric Band Hypnosis session, we work on producing positive changes to your eating habits, so that by the time we
get to the 4th session you may find that you have reduced your weight by 5-8 pounds, which is the average.
OK, But How Much Does It Cost?
I offer several different multiple session packages for Gastric Band Hypnosis, including a 4 session package and a 5 session package, and the rates are the same for a live session in my office and a skype/phone session.
The 5 session package includes one follow up session after the Gastric Band Hypnosis session. Additional sessions are available for those who need them at the same per session price.
Let me start by saying the fee for an individual session in my office is $200.
Compare the regular prices above with the special package prices below and you'll see you save as
much as 28% when you decide to go with a session package.
In addition to the multiple session discount, you have the option to pay 1/2 at the first session and 1/2 at the third session, though
the best price is available when you pay for 5 sessions in full.
For multiple payments, $350 is due at the first & third sessions for the 5 session package or $300 is due at the first & third sessions for the 4 session package.
When making multiple payments, you are not obligated to continue after the first 2 sessions, though it is extremely rare for anyone not to continue.
What Do I Do Next?
If you got this far, then it is time to take action, and there are several choices at this point. Of course you could do nothing, but one of my teachers
has a saying about that, "If you do nothing, nothing is going to happen, if you do something, something might happen, The Future is
Yours, Do Something About It!"
That last part is the title of one of his books, "The Future is Yours, Do Something About It!" The author of that book is Raymon Grace.
