A woman who hated her size 18 frame has revealed how she’s tricked her mind with hypnosis into believing that she’s had a gastric band operation – and the weight has fallen off.
Charlotte Coker, 26, dropped three stone and three dress sizes following the one-off session and says the treatment ‘has changed her life dramatically’.
After battling with her weight since her teenage years, Charlotte tried a myriad of diets but remained unable to resist fast food and fizzy drinks.
Charlotte Coker, 22, from Wallingham, struggled with debilitating anxiety attacks and hated her 15-stone frame
With a gastric band operation costing between £5,000 and £8,000, Charlotte decided to try hypnotherapy instead – which cost just £350 for one session. During her three-hour meeting with The Hypnotist Man, Robert Hisee, she was told she’d had an imaginary band fitted
Charlotte reveals that while she was in a ‘deep trance’, she was told she’d had a gastric band installed
Desperate to get help curbing her cravings – and also with the crippling anxiety that she was suffering with – she enlisted the help The Hypnotist Man, Robert Hisee.
Hisee used a range of techniques to help Charlotte overcome her weight issues – one of which included fitting an imaginary gastric band.
Charlotte paid just £350 for the session;l a considerable saving on gastric band surgery, which costs between £5,000 to £8,000.
Almost immediately after being put in a deep trance, her cravings for unhealthy food disappeared and Charlotte has been leading a healthy lifestyle since.
Charlotte, from Wallington, Surrey, said: ‘It took three hours for Robert to fit the imaginary gastric band.
‘I was placed into a deep trance where I visualised the gastric band procedure with my mind.
‘I’d first decided to meet Robert as I was fed up with my weight and had battled severe anxiety but that all changed after my session. It was the best thing I have ever done, I have so much more confidence now.’
‘The weight just dropped off me and I had a new lease of life as my outlook on everything changed.
Instead of craving sugar-laden treats, Charlotte had no desire, after the session, to go back to her bad eating habits and the weight began to drop off. She says she’s happier too, after the hypnosis left her feeling less anxious
She says that her body shut down cravings for unhealthy snacks such as crisps and fizzy drinks: ‘Subconsciously I didn’t eat huge portions as the imaginary gastric band prevented it.’

Charlotte spent just £350 on the session after she became desperate to lose weight and combat her anxiety.
She added: ‘At my heaviest, I was 15 stone and although I’d lost some weight before meeting Robert, I couldn’t lose anymore.
‘He asked me to visualise how I wanted to look and how I’d feel having the body I’d always wanted.
‘Then he talked through the restrictions of having a gastric band and how you can think yourself thin.
‘Robert managed to put me at ease straight away and my life has improved dramatically.
Think yourself thin! The 22-year-old says she’s lost weight and is finally at ease, with her anxiety attacks now manageable
Portion control: Charlotte says her subconscious will no longer let her gorge on certain foods
She adds: ‘I’m no longer battling against my weight and I don’t suffer from regular panic attacks. I would recommend anyone going to see him as he helps with such a huge range of issues.’
Robert Hisee, The Hypnotist Man, said Charlotte was the perfect candidate for hypnosis: ‘Charlotte was in a bad place with her weight and more importantly her mind when we first met.
‘She hated how she looked, she had anxiety and it was taking its toll on her relationship.
He explained that the three-hour session involves talking first about what didn’t work for Charlotte.
‘Then I put her into a deep hypnotic trance where she then visualised the gastric band operation using her unconscious mind and making Charlotte visualise her body in the future.
‘After three hours I could see the change in her mind-set and colour in her cheeks. Then only about four months later I see pictures of her in New York with her boyfriend looking amazing.
‘She’s now not only happier in her body but more importantly in her mind.’
