Proven 95% successful in clinical trials, the Virtual Gastric Band, or VGB for short, is not a diet. It is a powerful weight loss hypnosis programme created by Sheila Granger, which is designed to help clients lose weight by convincing their minds that their stomachs are full after a smaller amount of food. 

As hypnosis is a completely safe, non-invasive, non-surgical technique, there are multiple benefits over a traditional gastric band surgery, including:

  • Far less costly than surgery (Results achieved in as little as four sessions)

  • No lengthy hospital stays or expensive medical bills

  • 100% safe, quick, and painless

  • Works on the mind to retrain, reset, build willpower, and help break unhealthy habits for good

  • Get started right away (No long surgical waiting lists)

  • No lotions, potions, meal replacements or dieting

  • Sessions conducted via ZOOM or in Clinic


Using the power of clinical hypnotherapy, I take clients through deep relaxation and focusing exercises that work to calm and subdue the conscious mind. Using these methods with clients over several sessions, I work to retrain the brain to be satisfied with smaller portions of food. 


Clients often describe the Virtual Gastric Band weight loss hypnotherapy process by saying: ‘it was like a switch flicking on in my brain’. By taking people through this effective weight loss hypnotherapy method, I can successfully change a person’s attitude towards food and help them regain control over their cravings and bad habits around food. The gastric band hypnotherapy convinces them that there is a gastric band fitted around the upper part of their stomach, encouraging them to eat less.


Feedback from clients shows increased willpower and no feelings of deprivation. (Don't worry, you don’t need to stop eating the foods you enjoy! Instead, you find you will begin to feel more in control and able to lose excess weight naturally and consistently without dieting). That's why the hypnotic gastric band or hypnotherapy for weight loss is very effective and safe.


By taking you through the Virtual Gastric Band hypnosis to lose weight programme, I am merely helping you unlock and harness the power you already hold to make a positive change in your life.

The whole reason I became interested in hypnosis was thanks to my own incredibly positive experience with weight loss hypnosis. Working in the stock market in London, I was 25kg heavier than I am now. On top of this, I felt stressed and unfit; to be honest, completely burnt out. 


Out of curiosity and sheer desperation, I finally wound up in a hypnotherapist's office. In a very short space of time, I noticed rapid, impressive changes. Not only did I start to shed the weight effortlessly, but I also began using hypnosis to unlock my potential and improve all sorts of areas in my life; motivation to exercise, help to de-stress, even to stop smoking; it was fantastic!


Hypnosis gave me a lot of clarity and changed the entire trajectory of my life. Moving to New Zealand almost a decade ago, it wasn't long after I arrived that I decided to change my career. After dedicating countless hours to learning how to deliver hypnotherapy myself, I am delighted to be able to offer people a way to experience positive change in their own lives. 


After many years helping people overcome their unhealthy relationship with food and access long-term solutions to their weight problems with Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis, I look forward to working with you to help you tap into your potential to reap the rewards you seek.
