How to lose weight with the Virtual Gastric Band Programme – Cathy Cowan’s Newshub Interview

Book your place in our FREE Webinar “Stop the Mindless Snacking” and learn how to curb the urge to snack uncontrollably.

The Virtual Gastric Band Programme has helped thousands of clients all over the world to help lose weight in a healthy, sustainable way.

Recently, Cathy Cowan appeared on Newshub to talk about her success with the Virtual Gastric Band Programme*. She was 97kgs and with the help of the programme* she lost 30kg in her first year and then 10kg later on. 

Cathy was so impressed with the results of the programme that she decided to train with Alpha Hypnosis to become a hypnotherapist herself. 

Here are some questions my clients have asked…..

  • How does the Virtual Gastric Band Programme help you to lose weight? 

Utilizing hypnotherapy and the Virtual Gastric Band helps to convince your stomach is a lot smaller.  This convinces you that you don’t need as much food to be satisfied. And while Cathy used to eat ‘man-size’ portions, once she started the VGB programme she realised that she did not need such a huge amount of food to be satisfied.

This has also helped my clients with snacking. 

  • Can this help me use weight quickly? 

This is not a quick fix or magic wand, but rather a safe, gentle and gradual way to lose weight. 

  • Do I have to do anything? 

You have to really want to lose weight. You have to bring your commitment to the programme. It’s a combination of need, want and commitment. 

The programme covers a number of sessions and you simply sit in a chair and get guided into a hypnotic state. 

Does Cathy’s story make it easier for you to take the first step? 

Reserve your place in our FREE Webinar “Stop the Mindless Snacking” and get a taste of what Hypnotherapy is really like. Sue will help you relax and the session can assist you curb the urge to snack.
