Weight Loss Hypnotherapy Edinburgh


What if losing weight was actually easy?

Using the power of hypnotherapy, you can lose weight for good, once and for all. Your true struggle is not what you are eating…it is what is eating at you.


Welcome to Intelligent Weight-loss, a weight-loss programme that works with the root of why you overeat. Intelligent Weight-loss has been created by an expert hypnotherapist who has specialised in helping people like you to lose weight, and keep it off. 

The Intelligent Weight-loss Programme (IWL) is the culmination of more than twelve years experience of working with clients who want to lose weight, and have tried ‘everything else’- extreme diets, slimming clubs, and exercise regimes…all to no avail. 

You see, consciously, everybody knows how to lose weight – eat less, and move more! However, the cause of you being overweight lies at a subconscious level in your mind. That is where the power of hypnosis comes in.

Through hypnotherapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), you will learn proven tools and techniques that you can use on your own to:

  • Deal with cravings once and for all

  • Stop eating compulsively

  • Deal with your negative body image, and increase body confidence

  • Become motivated to exercise more

  • Increase your self-confidence

  • Deal with ‘relapse’ eating

  • Eliminate sugar cravings

  • Manage, and enjoy travelling and holidays

You will have access to a library of weight loss hypnotherapy videos and audio-recordings, for the days when a little support is useful.

Gastric Band Hypnotherapy Edinburgh

The Virtual, or hypnotic, Gastricband is a non-invasive technique that uses the power of hypnotherapy for weightloss. It does this by teaching your subconscious mind to believe your stomach has experienced an actual gastric-band surgery, meaning that you feel full quickly after eating smaller portions of food than you normally do.

There is NO DIETING involved in the use of the gastric-band approach, and you will be amazed to experience weight-loss without calorie counting, or hunger pains! This will happen as a result of your stomach shrinking, and becoming used to the smaller portions you are eating.

Unlike the actual surgery, there are no risks to your health, no ‘waiting time’ what weight-loss surgery would cost.


Andy MacArthur was one of the first hypnotherapists in Scotland to start sessions conducting virtual hypnotic gastric-bands with his weight-loss clients in 2009. Having done this work with 100+ people, Andy has learned that there is a certain client-type that uses this approach most successfully – these are often people who have given serious consideration to having weight-loss surgery, and consider their need to be urgent.

With the power of hypnosis, supported by your total commitment to lose weight, great things can happen! 

The Virtual Gastric-Band programme includes:

  • Four x weekly gastric-band sessions (face to face, or through Zoom)

  • A library of hypnotic recordings, to more deeply embed your gastric-band mindset

  • Daily WhatsApp check-ins

Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy Edinburgh

  • Do you really want to stop smoking for good?

  • Have you tried, and tried – but failed – to stop smoking?

  • Perhaps you tried hypnotherapy before, but it stopped working after a while?

  • Do you have a health condition, or other circumstance, that means you know that now is the time that you must, finally, stop smoking?


If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the above questions, let’s talk about how I can help you – as I know what works, and what doesn’t – in terms of stopping smoking for good. I have been an addictions counsellor and clinical hypnotherapist since 2008, and was always puzzled at the notion that smoking could be stopped with a single 90 minute session. I knew that nicotine is one of the most addictive drugs on the planet – and had my own experience of quitting a 20-a day habit, and knew it was challenging. 

When someone comes to see me with a cocaine or alcohol addiction, neither of us think it will take a single session. If that was possible, I would be a multi-millionaire! So, I applied my addiction counselling knowledge and my hypnotherapy training and experience, and created a stop-smoking programme that is robust and achieves long-lasting results.

In addition to hypnotherapy, the programmes includes nutrition-hacks that stop nicotine cravings fast, hypnotic recordings for you to listen to on your phone so that you can continually embed your new mindset of a non-smoker. A daily WhatsApp check-in for accountability, and support, is a unique feature of this programme, and can make a crucial difference for someone overcoming addiction.

I would like to stress that this stop-smoking programme is only for those who are truly committed, who have to stop. 

I know a lot about what helps people overcome addictions – and stay ‘clean’, whatever their issue was. This has taught me to use a more holistic approach, which I will do through providing you with a hypnotherapy library of recordings for daily use, daily WhatsApp check-ins, and sharing basic nutritional information when overcoming addictions.

By treating smoking tobacco as an addiction, you are more likely to make this change a permanent one. 

  • What will it mean for you to be free from this addiction? 

  • How will your life change for the better?
