I have tried various diets in recent years due to my weight slowly increasing, none of which have been successful. I had read various articles on Hypnotic Gastric Bands so I researched providers and found Sam’s website where I read the excellent reviews from a number of her clients who have had amazing results. I have now completed the sessions and so far have lost 9lbs. and a few inches. I still have a way to go before I reach a weight that I will feel comfortable and happy with but I am most definitely on the right path to a more sensible way of eating and enjoying food. These sessions have not only allowed me to think more positively about other areas of my life but has also changed how I sleep which has been a problem for some time. Sam is extremely professional and supportive and I would most definitely recommend her

Just a quick note to say thank you so much for your help with eating meat. I’m well into my travels now and meat is a part of most meals here. It has been so nice to be able to eat whatever falls on my plate without it being an issue. I’m even managing to eat some meat on the bone, and actually enjoying some of it now as well.

I came to see you a few times starting April 2013 for gastric band hypnotherapy. It’s been a great success.
I’ve lost OVER 4 STONES since then. I listen to your CD regularly and it fairly helps. It’s the longest I’ve ever been committed to healthy eating.
Thank you so much for all your help. I’ll make an appointment soon for a top up session.

Having tried every diet known to man with very little success, I decided to give Sam’s therapy a try. A decision I’ll never regret! From the very first session I felt levels of motivation that were astounding. Before the GB had even been fitted, I’d lost 12lbs! But for me, looking back on the process so far, I’ve gained so much more than just weight loss. And being honest, the weight loss has paled in significance now I see all the other positive results from the therapy. I don’t recall a time in life when I’ve felt happier, more content and positive than I do now.
I’m only a few days into having the GB fitted but already through weight management alone I’ve dropped a dress size and feel amazing. My goal is still a little way off, but I have no doubts I’m going to achieve that. I have confidence in myself and feel in control of my eating for the first time ever.
This isn’t just a course of treatment over a few weeks. It’s a course of treatment to shape your whole attitude to the rest of your life.
Thank you Sam for all your guidance and support so far.

Since going to see Sam I have become a much more confident and happy person. I have been on every diet in the book and food had taken over my life completely, from the first session with Sam my eating habits altered and I am steadily losing weight and feel so much better about myself. I now eat from a smaller plate, I eat slowly and listen to my body when I am full instead of clearing my plate as I used to do. Sam made me feel very relaxed and was easy to talk to, after she explained how the brain works she took me through my first hypnosis and I felt extremely focussed and positive after the first session. I had a very traumatic episode to deal with in my life just shortly after I started seeing Sam and I have no doubt I would not have coped as I did if I had not been to see her. I listen to the CD she gave me almost every night and since the first session my sleep has improved, I rarely waken up though the night now and if I do I can easily get back to sleep. I have changed my attitude to a number of things which were controlling my life, I decide if I want to do something and can now say ‘no’ if I do not want to, before I would say yes just because I didn’t want to let others down.
I have now had six sessions with Sam and will continue to visit her when I feel I need further support with other aspects of my life.
If you are struggling with life then give Sam a call and just listening to her voice you will feel compelled to go and see how she can help you. Making my decision to go to see Sam was the best decision I could have made.

I came to Sam feeling desperately trapped in a vicious cycle of repeated binge eating episodes. I found my behaviour alarming, going to great lengths to get the food I wanted and gorging on it until I felt sick. Feelings of shame and guilt would follow, along with fasting, exercising or calorie control to try and ‘undo’ some of the damage I’d done. Sam has helped me to restore calmness into my life and address the underlying issues that are causing this. I found the hypnotherapy very relaxing and the exercises that Sam used on me were certainly thought provoking. I also found that Sam took a genuine interest in my problem and would always go the extra mile in directing me to further information or reading. I’m grateful for the help I have received to date and look forward to continuing my treatment and reaching my ultimate goal of no longer relying on this addictive behaviour to deal with my emotions. Sam is just lovely and I would happily recommend her to anyone.

I’ve lost 18lbs so far and I’ve just had the band fitted! It’s still coming off!
Having tried almost every diet going, I was at a point in my life that I needed to explore a different avenue.
I googled hypnotherapy and was very impressed with Sam’s site so asked to make an appointment.
When I first met Sam she immediately put me at ease as I was nervous about the whole concept. I needn’t have been, the information Sam gave me really helped me understand WHY I ate as opposed to the diets I had tried that want you to stop you eating certain things etc, Sam helped make me understand what triggered my eating which no diet had ever touched on.
The hypnosis part was so relaxing and felt so good, as soon as my first appointment had finished I knew something had changed in me.
By my second apointment I had lost 9lbs and can honestly say I was aware that I DIDN’T want the food anymore, I could say NO!
By my third appointment I had lost 12lbs and 5.5 inches off my body (3 inches from my waist)!
In a few short weeks this has changed my whole outlook on life. I am so confident and happy. Through the weeks of hypnosis you feel so realxed and calm, it is something I should have done a long time ago. The buzz I feel when people comment on my weight loss makes me so happy and I have Sam to thank for helping me with this, but I am also so proud of myself for getting here.
I feel amazing!

I’ve lost 21lbs so far!!
When I saw an advert for Gastric band hypnotherapy sessions with Sam, I must admit I thought, no, it doesnt work does it? Having a stressful job and not being able to sleep meant I was attempting to make my self feel better with food.
My curiosity go the better of my and my ever decreasing dispair over my weight.
My initial consultation with Sam was a bit nerve racking, mailnly bacause I was going into the unknown, I had researched a little bit but had never been hypnotised. Sam was wonderful, putting me at my ease from the get go. During our chat Sam explained to me about why I over ate, about my fight or flight responses, and the ‘polar bear'(negative thinking)! I never realised the the left side of my brain and my right side conflicted each other!! And that I had a stress buckret that I needed to empty on a regular basis, mine was overflowing!!! After discussing my general health and doing the science part, Sam then asked me to lie on the bed, I can honestly say that during the whole time I was ‘under’ I felt so relaxed and at the time could hear everything that Sam said, but on reflection later on I could not remember anything.
I walked away from that first session very relaxed, probably more so than I have in a long time, that night I listened to the cd that Sam had prepared for me and enjoyed a very refreshed nights sleep.
From that first day I can honestly say that I did not eat as much as I normally would.
Sam gave me a list of instructions to use as a guideline, eat when hungry, eat what I want, enjoy what I am eating and too stop when I am full. I lost 9lbs that first week, I listened to my cd religiously every night. The most amazing session for me was when (and i somehow remeber this bit more) that chocolate would no longer taste the same anymore….. and it doesnt!!!
I had four sessions with Sam, the last one was when I had the ‘surgery’, i can vaguely remember the noise of my trolley being wheeled down to theatre, the machines in the theatre and then the antiseptic smell of the room.
It was the most fantastic experience I have ever had. I have now lost a total of 21lbs.
I have to work at it, it is a tool for me to use but at the end of the day I have to make the healthy choice about what I put in my mouth, the weight loss is slow, but slow is better, it will stay off longer.
I no longer binge on bread and biscuits, I can have one if I want one but I no longer have to have copiuos amounts or feel the need to finish off the packet. I can open a box of chocolates and have one then throw it in the bin. There is an added bonus to the hypnotherapy, I sleep much better, when I start to get stressed or I notice my sleep pattern changing I put on my cd and close my eyes… I try and listen to it 3-4 times a week and will continue to do so.
I intend to have 2-3 follow up weight management sessions with Sam, it was a very positive experince for me and I will continue to visit Sam.
