"I was very sceptical but had tried every diet possible. My issue seems to be more stress and not eating. I was 115kgs at my heaviest i started to diet and not eat which caused all sorts of issues. I had lost 10kgs but felt horrible so I went to Caroline after seeing her success.
I was sitting at 105kgs (size 18-20) she did stress release and gastric band. I felt amazing after a few weeks and the weight was falling off i am now sitting at 95kgs (size 16) and am looking forward to achieving my goal. I can't believe how easy it is and Caroline is so supportive. I couldn't be happier with less stress, eating more, enjoying food and loosing weight. Thank you Caroline "
"I started my virtual gastric band journey back on March 17th 2022 weighing in at 96.6kg. I think after 3 kids and being over weight for 17 years i had given up on thinking i could ever lose the weight.
Caroline helped me get over some past emotions that were holding me back and helped me cut my portion size hugely. Now 5 months on I am back to being my bubbly out going self and loving this journey I am on.
Today 23rd of August weighing in at 78kg. I lost the first 15kg just by having the help to cut portion size down, I lost the rest when I started walking.
I recommend this to anyone struggling not only just for weight but to get rid of any emotions or trauma holding you back from being your true self."
"When I first contacted Caroline regarding the virtual gastric band I was a bit hesitant. I asked heaps of questions and Caroline was amazing answering them all and with no pressure to sign up.Throughout the first session I was a scared but excited. I came out feeling amazing and wanting more! We dug deep into my past and my relationship with food (which was bad). Listening to my recordings and guidance from Caroline I was loving my journey to make myself a happier healthier person both physically, mentally, and emotionally!
Letting go of my past and moving forward with my future was a huge step for me. I recreated my relationship with food, changed my habits, becoming a better me. A me who loves being me; A me who looks in the mirror proud of what’s looking back. A me who has confidence in myself, my choices, and my journey. Comparing my first Photo to my current sums up my journey, and that I am so, so proud."
"Going into hypnotherapy I had no idea what to expect and was a little sceptical. Caroline welcomed me into her environment, walked me through the process and answered all the questions and concerns I had.
She has helped me deal with so much more than just my eating habits, she helped me find the source of my problems and traumas and worked through them in a way I never thought imaginable. Honestly, an experience you have to experience yourself to truly understand the amazing benefits. My new eating habits and weight loss is the extra benefits I have gained from my time with Caroline. Life changing and 100% uplifting."
"12 months ago I took the plunge and did the virtual gastric band programme with Caroline.
I didn't really know what to expect but I am so bloody happy I did it. It really is the easiest way to lose weight. I've got back in tune with my body and eating when I am hungry. I am enjoying all the food I love, just in smaller portions and without any crazy intensive exercise regimes.
I just cant thank Caroline enough, she is amazing at what she does xx"
I have always been intrigued with hypnotherapy and wondered if it really worked or was just a fad... I was dubious going to my first session with Caroline, but I instantly felt comfortable and safe with her. Caroline took the time to really listen to me, with compassion and kindness and from there we made a plan. Our first session focused on me being kind to myself and letting go of unnecessary baggage. Caroline created a relaxed space, and I came away from my first session with a sense of calm and inner peace.
In my second session I wanted to work on weight loss and weight management. Already I have noticed a change in the way I feel about food and my relationship with food. The anxiety I had been feeling around food is gone and I feel great. I have another session booked with Caroline and I am really looking forward to it!
Caro at Higher Plane Hypnotherapy explains the process clearly and how hypnotherapy works and what to expect. I like this as have not done “unconscious mind” work before. We had a good bond and I felt comfortable to go ahead.
My main goal was to increase my self-belief and confidence in myself after a back injury, Covid job loss and no sleeping...I was pretty low and felt I had lost my spark. I really like the guided imagery and I still use these to distract my mind when thinking negatively. Caro genuinely believed in my potential and wanted the best for me. And as lofty as I thought my goal was, I found I was feeling better within myself each week. The power of the mind is a funny thing, and I am grateful to feel better, stronger, more confident, and sleeping better and have found an ideal job recently.
I was fortunate enough to receive hypnotherapy at Higher Plane Hypnotherapy recently. Initially I came to Caroline for help with weight loss but she ended up helping me to release a lot of past baggage and find self love again. I am very pleased to say I have also rid myself of unwanted weight.
I found it easy to relax under Caroline's care, she made me feel at ease and I put complete trust in her. I recommend Caroline and Higher Plane Hypnotherapy to anyone needing some assistance. You won't be sorry you did it.
Desire to change
I have had issues from being overweight almost all my life. I vividly remember being put on a diet by my GP whilst at primary school, some 50 years ago! Since then I have tried many ’diets’, often with success, but the weight just creeps back on when returning to ‘normal‘ eating.
I am blown away by the amazing success that Caroline has personally achieved, through hypnotherapy, in her own weight loss journey. I eagerly agreed to become one of her clients at a time when I was struggling with those COVID kilos and totally uninspired by the thought of “yet another diet”.
Over the course of 4 hypnotherapy sessions, Caroline talked to my subconscious about my desire to shift those kilos, by simply reducing the amount of food eaten. Not a diet, but just less. We eat for so many reasons – comfort, grief, happiness, boredom etc. I have found that now my brain is not seeking food for the sake of it, but when I need nourishment. I am enjoying each mouthful with greater awareness of my intake – be it healthy or a bit unhealthy at times! I have not given up anything, except my subconscious being over obsessed with food and eating.
I have lost 9kg in the last 2 months without trying very hard at all. I am well on my way to a much healthier and happier me. My subconscious is taking all the strain of the process, leaving my conscious self able to get on and enjoy life so much more!
Caroline has been so professional in her sessions with me. Her support has been amazing! I would recommend anyone to seek her out to help them with any difficult life journey they are having. We only live once, and no one else can live our lives for us. It is up to us to seize any opportunity to make that life better!
Thank you Caroline.
