I went to Diane in June for an initial consultation i was very impressed with her there was no pressure and even though i booked my gastric band session i cancelled at the last minute not sure why. I eventually plucked up the courage to have it done 3 weeks ago Diane was lovely made me feel totally comfortable and at ease. 3 weeks in iv lost 13lb and found that im not picking or snacking in between meals iv not had a take away or fast food trip. Not craved chocolate crisps ir snacks even during the dreaded week a month. Im no longer scared about eating out or eating worrying about what i will eat all the time. Im eating normal food what i fancy but just making sure its on my blue plate. Can honestly say visiting Diane has totally changed my view and relationship towards food and im enjoying everything i eat with no guilt involved im totally 100% satistied with my portion and not been hungry in between meals.

So on the 16th may I went for hypnosis to have a virtual gastric band fitted! Nothing is ever simple with me so there has been no huge weight loss but I have lost gradually and today I finally hit 1 stone down. As someone who has battled her weight the whole of my adult life this is fantastic for me, there has been no drastic diets and no deprivation, just smaller portions, lots of water and small changes, have still had treats just not as often. This is the most optimistic I have ever felt about my weight and i look forward to posting another stone loss in another 3 months More...

7 days into my journey after having the hypnosis gastric band and I'm 6lb down already.. I only had a stone to loose and we all know that last bit of weightloss is the hardest to shift. I went with an open mind and must say I'm so pleased with the difference it's made. My mindset towards food is totally different. I want to make the changes to my diet and no longer crave the bad foods. I stick to my portion sizes with no problems, sometimes not even finishing the plate which was my worst problem. I never left a plate with food on b4. The confidence it gives you to succeed is amazing. I Can't recommend diane enough. If your unsure or sceptical about this I say just give it a try and it may surprise u happy customer More...

I went to see Diane nearly 4 weeks ago. My problem was CHOCOLATE. Spending £50/75 a WEEK of my wages on the stuff, (£2/300 a month wasted) and have done so for the last 6 years. To be fair, I thought, there's no way this is going to work. How wrong was I. No chocolate in 21 DAYS!!! And Diane is so lovely to talk to.. actually listens . So yes..give her a go. I'm now spending money on driving lessons instead of chocolate. More...

I came to see Diane not long ago, she is so nice & pleasant. But in all fairness I didn’t think that hypnosis would work for me but oh my god how I was wrong my portion sizes has dropped, I don’t feel guilty about throwing away leftovers that the kids have left. I’ve become more aware of foods in general. Also since seeing Diane I’ve lost a total of 10 lbs & overall 8 inches. Thank you so much Diane ❤️ More...

I visited this lovely lady on the 12 th April and I am already down 13lb , I felt at ease all the time and found that Diane actually listens to you and talks to you not at you , I had the gastric band session and it’s working well for me , I’m never hungry i snack at on fruit at whereas before it would be chocolate biscuits and crisps , My advice would be do the research , read the reviews ,go along to the free half hour session and embrace the whole experience , I certainly did Thank you Diane ,it’s reassuring to know that your on the end of the phone if I need you !

I've waited a week to give my review and experience of the virtual gastric band so it's a fair and balanced one. The session was very relaxing and I learnt a lot from Diane about myself and my habits. The effect for me was immediate, I had food in the car for after my session but I didn't feel I wanted it! Things that have happened this week are: I've stopped snacking, massively reduced my portions, started eating a little more fruit and salad and stopped craving the carb foods I used to love. I have lived my life stress free, been to the pub for afternoons with the family and had a (small) KFC with the kids and the gastric band has had my back through it all. I've lost an inch off my hips and waist! In my first week I've lost 7lbs and never felt bloated since I've had it! I'd highly recommend this and Diane More...

This message is for all those considering this. I went to see Diane last Tuesday and boy oh boy is she worth a visit. I will be completely honest with you. I was very unsure about the process and was nervous. . When I was being put in to the hypnosis “sleep “. I thought To myself this isn’t going to work I’m not even hypnotised. Even though Diane was so nice professional and thorough. I felt wide awake and with it. How wrong could I be. I crave crisp bread and savoury things and because I enjoy eating so much i was eating chocolate too when I’m not even bothered about it. Since Tuesday, the 16th of April I can honestly say I’ve not eaten or craved anything of the above at all. Not even licked my fingers when preparing lunch for my granddaughter today, chocolate spread and crisps. I seriously cannot tell you what I feel like. This virtual gastric band and Diane are amazing!!!!! I would and have recommended this to my friends and family. Thank you Diane I am forever grateful xx More...

When greeted by Diane I instantly felt at ease. She helped me understand my food habits and the way i see food...in a way she cleared the fog and made me realise I've got to look at food differently and helped me with portion sizes and portion control also to eat more regularly. Within my first week of having the hypnosis ive lost 6lb thanks Diane for helping me I'm looking forward to the future xx More...

As a former weight watchers leader I know about healthy eating and weight loss but over years and doing an office job my weight crept up. I went to see Diane about 5 weeks ago, after a colleague who's doing fantastically recommended her. I had the virtual gastric band and very soon my mindset changed. I've cut my portion sizes by half and only have treats a couple of times a week. I get full much quicker and I go for healthy food instead of pastries or cakes. I definitely recommend Diane.

I have had the virtual gastric band fitted now for 3 days.. I have seen a positive change in my eating habits. I eat smaller portions, I eat healthier and more often and I veer towards the healthier options without any thought. I have not snacked and I have not felt hungry at all. AND best of all I have lost 2lbs without any effort. The best part is I feel positive and good in my skin and I look forward to the evening relaxation & reinforcement sessions. Highly recommended. THANK YOU DIANE More...
