Do I have to give up foods I love?

No, you just eat much smaller quantities. Although many of my clients more more into healthier foods, that is not a requirement. It’s up to you. Provided you follow the programme and the Four Golden Rules this can work for you.  

I'm afraid of "failing" again

This programme gives you much more support than other VGB programmes, and over a much longer time.  This is a powerful and effective transition as your mind set changes. And you will release the weight naturally.  It’s about managing expectations – it’s likely to be a gradual and safe transition, as your new habits replace your old habits at the subconscious level.   

I’m with you every step of the way!

I’ve got your back! 

Aren't people in a hypnosis show controlled by the stage hypnotist?

 No. Although I can understand that it looks ‘as if” the stage hypnotist “controls” them and can get them to do whatever he wants. However, that is not correct…

What you may not realise is, those people volunteer to go up and stage and they know they will be “instructed” to do entertaining and/or silly things. Often there is alcohol and certain amount of bravado involved. They may want to show off in front of their friends or mates, some may say things like “He won’t be able to hypnoptise me” etc.  And yet, they go up and go along with it!

What you only see in a live stage show, not on the highly edited TV shows, is that even after the stage hypnotist has hypnotised the people and they’re sitting on chairs on the stage, and he’s ready to give them instructions… there still may be one or two people that don’t “obey” his very simple first instructions.  This is because, although they volunteered, they have changed their mind.  This shows they still have free will and cannot be “made” to do something they don’t to do.

The stage hypnotist will ask those epopel some questions and usually, if they don’t follow instructions, he knows they won’t be entertaining, and he’ll send them back to their seat in the audience.

Note: when I refer to “he” or “his” this refers to any gender or non- identified gender, and is simply used for easier reading purposes.


What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a natural state we all go into a number of times during the day and night.  E.g. when we’re very focused on something (a book, game or movie), daydreaming, working, driving, crafting, etc. It’s also where our dreams occur. 

Hypnotherapy is simply therpy offered during hypnosis.

The way Sue Wood works is she guides you using relaxation, mindfulness, visualisation, therapy techniques and processes, etc. to focus on and change your mindset around food and eating. Once you’re mind’s reset, you can start release that excess weight.

Is hypnosis a form of mind control?

No.  Hypnosis helps you focus and change your own subconscious, away from the unhealthy habits you’ve learned over years and helps making the new habits easier.

Does hypnosis really work?

Yes. Here is some evidence gathered from research studies:

Hypnosis Subjects Lost More Weight Than 90% of Others and Kept it off
Researchers analyzed 18 studies comparing a cognitive behavioural therapy, such as relaxation training, guided imagery, self-monitoring or goal setting with the same therapy supplemented by hypnosis. Those who received the hypnosis lost more weight than 90 % of the non-hypnosis and maintained the weight loss two years after treatment ended.

Hypnosis Over 30 Times as Effective for Weight Loss
Researchers investigated the effects of hypnosis in weight loss for 60 females who were at least 20% overweight. Treatment included group hypnosis with metaphors for ego-strengthening, decision making and motivation, ideomotor exploration in individual hypnosis, and group hypnosis with maintenance suggestions. Hypnosis was more effective than a control group 17lbs vs. 0.5 lbs on follow-up.

Is it a diet-and-exercise programme?

No.  It’s about creating a belief in your subconscious that you’ve had a “gastric band” fitted, so you eat much smaller meals. There is no depriving yourself of foods you enjoy, you just eat smaller amounts.
It’s all about changing the automatic habits that you’ve built up over years. Once your mindset changes, your eating habits change and you can start releasing that unwanted weight and get your life back! 

What if I'm not able to attend?
As I plan to record each session that’s not a problem. You can chose from the following two options:
1. You can catch-up by watching the video. This will include the hypnosis session.
2. We can change your registration to the next set of dates


This was much more than weight loss!
Starting my journey on this which I thought was all about weight loss. How wrong I was! My relationship with food was unhealthy, fraught with binge eating and feeling guilty for overeating! My thoughts around food have changed into positive ones – Mel

I found this (programme) to be ideal to assist me!
I found unbelievable energy, confidence, drive and passion for my life again, and the motivation I feel now, to get on and live my life & achieve my goals, is great! – Caylie

My wife and I were consuming huge platefuls of food, no exercise and before we knew it we were out of control and heading towards long term health issues. We find that we now look forward to better health, regular exercise and our attitude towards life and ourselves has improved immensely. – “John & Joan” Not their real names

Other Virtual Gastric Band programmes charge nearly $900 for fewer sessions and resources.

If you’re over doing the dieting yo-yo and feeling guilty about eating foods you love…

it’s time to rest your mind and reach your body goals, naturally.
