Session #1: Detoxification/Elminating Contaminants of the Past
This is a very important session because this is where we get to know each other. You will have to be willing to share the details about yourself and your relationship with food. As the hypnotist, I need know all I can know about your eating habits in order for me to help you change your old habits and prepare you for your journey towards surgery. It is very likely that you will be asked to lose some weight in order to qualify for surgery. If so, I will help you. I will want to know what kinds of food you are having difficulty with. I will need to know the amounts you eat, the times you eat, the vitamins you will need to take and how they will affect you. We will discuss the “NEW” “Bariatric” rules of eating versus your current rules and the importance of these changes. There are many forms to be completed and we will take care of the financial contract.During the hypnotic portion of this session, you will experience a magnificent connection with your subconscious mind and you will come to the realization that you are in charge of your own life and your own future. You will emerge knowing that anything is possible and your relationship with food is no longer as important as you believed it once was. You will see yourself as a success and you will be so excited and ready to proceed with your preparation for surgery. You will be “Changing Your Life by Changing Your Mind”. During this session, you will learn the powers of hypnosis.
Session #2: Reclaiming Ownership of Self
This could very likely be the most important part of the whole program, particularly if you are looking for a reason to succeed. All past attempts have resulted in failure because you have been looking to succeed for all of the wrong reasons.This session is an amazingly powerful way in which to return to something that was taken away from you so many years ago, the power of self. From the time you were born you followed your parents, siblings, friends, teachers, religion, government and your partner or spouse. You never really got a chance to program yourself. Well now you will understand how to look at your life in a whole new way. You will be given back power over your life.
Session #3: Bariatric Surgery for the Mind
Whether you have had Gastric Bypass, the Lap Band, the Sleeve or you wish to mimic the effects of the bariatric surgery, you will have to make some major adjustments in your mind set. During this session, you will experience bariatric surgery without the scalpel. A Unique – one of a kind – bariatric experience that will introduce your mind to the concept of lap band surgery leaving you with the mental effects of the stomach restriction. We refer this as “Bariatric Surgery for the Mind”. If you have already experienced the actual surgery, we have a REINFORCEMENT script for you.
Session #4: Follow Up
This session will go over diagrams of post-operative digestive tracts. You will understand how the anatomy has changed and how those changes affect you. You should understand the concept of the minimized stomach in order to understand what you have experienced during the last session (display of post-operative bypass, lap-band & sleeve diagrams will be available for viewing).During this visit, we will review and understand compliancy. I will guide you gently through the transference process and help eliminate any fears or anxiety you may have.During the hypnotic portion of this session, you will be given a poster illustrating a positive outlook for your future. You will be given the power to heal yourself more rapidly and understand that your mind controls your body. You will be confident with the decision you have made for the future.
Session #5: Shedding Your Shield of Protection
Like the newborn child, you must learn many new life lessons. In this session, you will come to terms with how to deal with life as you shed the fat. For years you have successfully lived behind this layer of artificial protection which, as sad as it made you feel, gave you a sense of security and a feeling of power against the world. Now, as the shield melts away, you will learn how to empower yourself. You will, maybe for the first time in your life, feel and believe that you are as important as everyone around you. You will let go of your past and focus on the future. Your feelings of vulnerability will diminish. You will become strong within yourself.
Session #6: Living with the Emerging You
As you go through the process of weight loss, you will find that there will be changes in your relationships with those around you. As you get thinner, your self-confidence will build. Your role as a “second class citizen” will diminish and others will notice a difference in you. This may lead to stress within these relationships.During this session, you will come to terms with the changes within yourself and those around you and learn how to handle them before they become problematic. You will accept that you are #1 in the equation. You will also understand why you must love yourself before you can have true and happy relationships with others. You will also learn how to teach those around you what to expect and allow them to accompany you on this journey. This approach takes the stress out of change that could, and has been known to compromise your success.
Session #7: Eating to Live
Throughout your diet life, you have come to look at food as the enemy. Your relationship with food has become too distorted and therefore your obsession with it has increased. You have used food as an emotional pacifier. When you were lonely, you ate. When you were sad you ate. When you are stressed you ate. You ate for any reason because in your old world, food was a comfort and could help you through any and all situations.During this powerful session, you will develop a new relationship with food. Your subconscious mind will cancel out those food connections and you will learn how to deal with those emotions directly. After this portion of the program, you will understand that food is not to be feared. Your relationship with food is the key to your success: therefore, this step is an extremely important element in your life changing program. Like the newborn, you will learn to eat all over again. You have to educate your body and your mind in the art of healthy eating. You will emerge from this session, understanding that your love for yourself is much greater than your love of food.
Session #8: Declare Your Space in the World
This may well be the most important step to your success. For too long, your opinion of yourself has been that of a “second class citizen”. As the fat piled on to your body, you became less and less sure of your own importance. You not only lost faith in yourself, but in your ability to obtain long term success. You are important and you will emerge from this session reassured in that knowledge. The difference in saying it and understanding it through hypnosis must be experienced to be understood. Your life responds to your thought patterns and once those patterns change, your life changes. You will learn how to regain your power. You will understand why you can do anything you put your mind to. Self-praise and respect will become your new “comfort foods”. With self-hypnosis, you will reinforce this knowledge every day and over time you will become a true force to be reckoned with. Your self-respect and pride will make you realize that you can in fact do anything you set your mind to do. You will declare your rightful space in the world of which you are an important link.
Establishing a Plan for the Future
By the time you get to this point, you will have lost so much girth, yet gained so much worth that it is imperative that you devise a plan to keep you motivated right into the future. Anything worth having is worth fighting for and this is about the most important thing you have given yourself in a long time.You have learned so many important things about yourself and your power over that self. You are in the driver’s seat and this is where you must stay for the rest of your life. Remember, your mind is the most powerful asset you own. Once you decide that you want something and you notify your subconscious mind of that decision…. nothing and no one will have any power over it. You are the only one in charge of you.
