Get fast results from Ilona's Hypnotic Gastric Band

The Hypnotic Gastric Band is a remarkable weight loss hypnotherapy program.

It is a non-surgical technique, which uses the power of hypnosis to retrain the mind to accept and enjoy healthy eating patterns, and to be satisfied with smaller amounts of food.

The mind is such a powerful instrument and by using the hypnotherapy and other modalities such as NLP, you will gain the tools to change your eating habits forever. The hypnotherapy program convinces the brain that the stomach is full after consuming small portions so there is no desire for any more food. You begin to think about food differently and the program gives very safe, predictable results.
This program is definitely NOT a diet (diets only work in the short term). In fact, the Hypnotic Gastric Band allows you to eat whatever you wish, but in smaller amounts. Because it's not a diet there is no deprivation, hunger or misery. You are left with a long-term solution to your weight problems.

How long is the program?

The four-session “Hypno Gastric Band” Program is held over 10 weeks. The sessions are approximately one hour each.

You will receive at least three 17 minute hypnotherapy recordings, any of one of which you can use every day for 28 days. You may also receive a personalised CD for any specific blocks that arise.

Ilona is available for continued support during and beyond the four sessions. She may spend time with you addressing emotional eating or bingeing issues.

Same sex / gay couples counselling

Ilona offers a supportive and non-judgmental space for gay couples. There is no difference between her approach to heterosexual and homosexual couples, other than any specific issues that arise for homosexual partners.

The human needs for connection, significance, variety, safety and stability are universal.


Marriage & Relationship counselling

Why is my marriage faltering?

There are many reasons why your marriage might be at risk such as work-related stress, financial concerns, emotional incompatibility, and different ideas about child rearing, differing values, an affair, boredom, lack of fun, or sex & intimacy issues.

Is there any hope?

Few marital issues, however big, are unsolvable if each partner truly wants to repair the relationship.

Most fights are about emotional disconnection and this relates closely to poor communication skills. Love is an ongoing process of losing and recreating emotional connection. People have affairs because they are lonely and have lost emotional connection with their partners.

What’s needed to make my relationship flourish?

All couples in a marriage or relationship need:

  • Emotional security and a sense of safety with one another;
  • Variety and stimulus in daily life together;
  • Love and emotional connection through regular, honest communication;
  • A strong sense of significance from the partner – each feeling she/he is a priority and very special to the other.

    Are any of these basic human needs going unmet in your relationship?

    How can we repair our relationship?

    When your relationship runs into trouble, you should immediately seek help; waiting rarely solves the problem and the longer the tension is left, the more the outward, negative behaviours become entrenched.

    Ilona teaches how couples can fulfil each other’s needs and how to recover quickly after a fight. The fighting is actually not the problem; it is the ability to recover after a conflict that is the most important factor in creating or maintaining a healthy marriage.

    As a trained and very experienced therapist, Ilona helps you find the real underlying issues and then systematically eliminate them.

    You deserve to have the relationship you want!
