Online Gastric Mind Band Treatment, by Skype, Zoom or FaceTime
Completing the GMB Permanent Weight Loss treatment course online, has become the most popular option following the current situation with Covid. The GMB online package can offer an array of benefits, and is a treatment protocol that we have completed with hundreds of clients over the last ten years. The online method brings Martin and Marion Shirran, the developers to your living room, regardless of where in the world you live.
The approach enables you to select your weight loss method based on the ability and specialisations offered, rather than on your, or the clinics geographical location. You can now benefit from working with a therapist with bespoke skills, specialising in cutting edge weight loss techniques. Additionally, as no travelling is involved, all the associated costs of time off work – travel, accommodation etc, no longer exist.
An additional possible benefit of the Online GMB therapy is that for some people at least, it is often easier, and emotionally safer, to talk to someone, who is initially a stranger, about personal issues, from the comfort and security of your own home. From a client’s perspective, many find the fact that sessions are available, morning, afternoon, evening, as well as over selected weekends, can be particularly helpful when planning their day to day activities.
Does it Work and Just How Effective Is It?
At the Elite Clinic, based in Spain, we have been delivering remotely the Gold Standard GMB Permanent Weight Loss Treatment globally across all time frames for a number of years. All of our sessions are conducted exclusively on a 1:1 basis. Of course, with the current Covid situation, the demand from clients to complete the GMB Treatment Online has increased dramatically, encouraging us, like many others, to continually enhance and improve the treatment packages we provide and increasing the number of treatment hours available.
We recognise and acknowledge that the decision made by individuals to seek assistance regarding their permanent weight loss is potentially one of the most important decisions they have ever made. We understand, and fully appreciate, that you are looking for real solutions: you want to feel, and see, improvements as soon as reasonably possible, and you want the results to be permanent. We know that all our clients are investing their time, energy, money, and trust in the GMB process, and have a right to want, and expect, something significant in return for this investment; our job is to deliver…as we have for the past 15 years…
Does Online Therapy Deliver the Same Results as those achieved at the Clinic ?
So can the Online GMB treatment really produce the same results as those experienced in an in-person situation at the clinic? The maybe surprising answer is: usually, yes!
In general, research studies regarding online and Skype therapy show that:
- Significant improvements are possible with online therapy
- Results are equal, or in some cases better, to that of in-person therapy
- Client satisfaction is high.
A considerable amount of research has been done around online counselling in general, which originally was carried out through emails, instant messaging, or ‘e-learning’. The studies found that not only were online counselling sessions effective, but in some cases it was even more so.
For example, a 2009 study led by the University of Bristol looking at the effects of online cognitive behavioural therapy on those who suffered depression, found a 43% rate of recovery in participants, and one Canadian study even found some subjects had better results with online CBT therapy than in-person CBT.
After each GMB session, you will be emailed a studio produced MP3 audio file containing the required Hypnosis session. During the course of the treatment you will be emailed, as and where appropriate, a number of videos, audio and image files.
As for any worries that you won’t have as good a personal connection with your therapist, Marion Shirran, a 2014 review carried out in Australia on the subject of client-therapist relationships in video therapy positively confirmed that clients felt at least as bonded with their therapist using video conference as those who had in-person therapy.
Providing our GMB weight loss treatment Online has become the ‘Go to Option’ recently, and is growing in both popularity and acceptance. We look forward to helping you achieve your weight loss goals.
Session Length, and Frequency.
Whilst at the outset we will inform you of what, in our opinion, would give you the most beneficial results, we prefer for you to tell us how long you would like each session to last, and how often you wish the sessions to be scheduled. It is common for clients to adjust both length and frequency, once they get into the process.
But doesn’t in-person therapy have benefits over online therapy…?
There are, of course, some elements of online GMB that makes the process more challenging, for that is, not you the client. Occasionally we have to work harder to ensure we carefully read all your body language, eye movements etc. However, the session will be completed in real-time, and after ten years of providing online treatment we know to look for verbal cues, eye contact, and other body clues.
