"For me the retreat was a life-changing experience. I knew it was going to be great but it gave me so much more than I could ever have imagined. I feel like a new person, so free, energised and motivated, like I can achieve anything I want. Not only did I release some body fat, I also dumped a lot of negative beliefs and excess baggage that had been weighing me down for years. I am now 40 Kilos lighter. Since I got home everyone is telling me how good I look, they all say my eyes are so clear and sparkling and I look lighter and happier, I guess it’s all that excess baggage I left at Little Forest!”

Carolyn Johnstone Victoria ’….. thanks so much.

The Innermakeover retreat is the ideal retreat to:

  • De-stress
  • Lose weight
  • Stop smoking
  • Get healthy

After you experience the Hypnotic Lap Band you will find you can comfortably and happily consume smaller portions of food. Eating smaller portions means you start slimming down straight away. You will feel fuller sooner. Some people comment if they try to eat too much that they feel uncomfortable or even a bit sick if they continue eating once full.
Julie Fennell - before and after

“My dinner last night would have been a 1/4 of what I would have normally eaten and this morning I haven't had breakfast and its 11.30, been up for hours and I am still not hungry. AMAZING.”
- Cathy Bruton

The fact is, your unconscious mind and therefore your body cannot tell the difference between a real experience and an imagined experience. The entire Hypnotic Lap Band experience is very realistic. The process is also very relaxing and completely painless.
Hi Mark, I FEEL GREAT! Thank you for such a great weekend.
I loved the retreat and feel so relaxed but energised.  The healing you gave me on my shoulder

which was rated at 8/10 on the pain scale for a couple of years is still down at 2/10 and I am still able to sleep on it.
The Hypnosis sessions were fantastic and the Lap Band session was so real.  I could feel the anaesthetic needle going into my left hand and also felt sensation, like tension, in my abdomen and when I awoke the vein in my left hand was swollen and sore and I could feel the tightness in my stomach.  All at the retreat was amazed with the reaction I had. The meal we had that night I could not do justice to. I only ate 1/2 the soup and 1/3 of the very small dessert and felt sooooooooooooo full. I didn't feel hungry at all. The time line sessions were amazing and the relaxation in the rainforest room was a great experience for me.  I have never had hypnotherapy before in my life and was apprehensive about at first BUT I would do a retreat again with you.  Thank you so much.

Sincerely Elaine.  

You will learn to tap into the unconscious part of your mind and have your unconscious working for you and with you instead of against you. You will discover exactly what you need to do physically, mentally and emotionally, to make the changes you need to make to get the successful results you want.
“Hypnosis has gained credibility in the past five years because of research using the latest brain-imaging technology…. Studies show hypnosis can help treat a multitude of disorders...”
- Business Week, 2/04

“The Hypnotic Lap Band Session is Scarily real and amazingly effective.  You feel like you are not hungry straight away! Little Forest Health Retreat is the most beautiful, amazing, wonderful place I've ever been to.  Everyone should go there at least once in their life! The hypnosis and sessions with Mark are Life-changing and soul revitalising.  Don't waste your money on quick fix "diets"- save your money and go to one of these- it will change your life!”
- Carole-Ann Kerford

Your brain is like a ten billion gigabyte neck top PC. Your brain is a super computer. The main reason for the high failure rate on diets is that most people do nothing to deal with or replace the outdated software and programs they are running in their brain.

“Though often denigrated as fakery or wishful thinking, hypnosis has been shown to be a real phenomenon with a variety of therapeutic uses…”
-Scientific American 7/01

Many of us live our life imprisoned by limiting beliefs and negative emotions. Limiting beliefs may include; diets don’t work, I’ll always be overweight, I can’t stop snacking, I have no control, etc, etc, etc. The list is endless.


“Attending the retreat and doing the Hypnotic Lap Band session has given me a new lease on life. I have been twice now and am planning on going again. From the amazing food to the views and all the hypnosis sessions it is life changing. I am now 47 Kilos lighter and have never felt better. I believe having a new mind set, thinking positively, feeling motivated, leaving behind those bad habits has been the key to my success. Thank you so much.”
- Rob Gourlay Melbourne.
P.S. As a total my whole family is now 125 kilos lighter. This is amazing.

The funny thing is everyone knows what to eat and what not to eat. If you’re like most people you already know what to do to slim down. We all know that more activity is needed to burn fat. Why then do we have such a growing weight problem? It all comes back to our thinking. It all comes back to our attitude, focus and motivation.

“I walked into a lolly shop yesterday to buy a little treat for my boys I felt physically sick and got them a little toy instead. The Lap band session was so real and doing it again today on the MP4 player just reinforced it. I also loved the other sessions. Who would have thought to get rid of years of anger could be so easy. I think my 2 1/2 year old said it all mummy your big blue eyes are shiny I haven't shined for years and am ready to shine again.”
- Katie Tucker - NSW

The actual hypnosis script was written with the help of an experienced Lap Band nurse who had assisted on thousands of actual Lap Band surgeries. This is accurate. You will feel like you have had a lap band.

The Hypnotic Lap Band hypnosis session has you imagine you are being wheeled in to an operating theatre. You then imagine you are being administered a general anaesthetic and once you have entered a trance state the imaginary surgery is performed.

Think and shrink at the Hypnotic Lap Band Weekend and take control of your eating.

You will:

  • Be satisfied with smaller amounts.
  • Feel fuller sooner
  • Choose healthy foods naturally.
  • Easily say no to junk food.
  • Be motivated to be more active
  • Burn the fat and get in shape.
The Mind Free / HypnoLap Band Weekend includes:
  • All meals
  • Accommodation.
  • All hypnosis sessions
  • All therapy sessions
  • For Interstate travellers (mini bus transfers to and from the airport to retreat if flying in - mini bus departs Sydney at 9am and on the trip home arrives back at the airport from the retreat at 5.30pm)
You could spend up to $15,000 on a Lap Band and not be guaranteed success. A number of people who have attended the retreat had failed with the Lap Band. Rest assured though it was not the band (in most cases) that failed. The real Lap Band surgery does work for many people. The most important thing however that any body who succeeds with any diet, weight loss program or even with weight loss surgery is that they get their mind set right.

Get your mind set right first.

“Participating in the Think Slim retreat was the best decision I have made in a very long time.
I was a 74 kg yo-yo dieter, emotional eater I had no energy and felt low.

This week turned my life upside down.

With the help of Mark’s therapy I got rid of all my limiting beliefs and it changed my whole mind-set about myself. I am no longer the last in the important list, but I am the most important on it now. I do a lot for myself now. The realization what I was doing with my own body, the unhealthy things hit home and that was the turning point for me.

Three weeks have passed since I came home and I am 68kg and I feel fantastic

I learned during the retreat that it is never late for a life change. We just have to reprogram our brain.

Thanks for everything."

"The meals, the juices, the accommodation, the pool, the rainforest, the company… hed out on a lounge next to the fire place, now that’s relaxing.

My daughter questioned on my return as to why I was speaking so softly and calmly – she said it wasn’t normal and it was freaking her out. My response was ‘get use to it’….. thanks so much.

Cheers"

Hi Mark,

After doing the Hypnotic Lap Band weekend I have burnt off 14kgs of FAT. The retreat has changed my life in so many ways. I am happy, really happy and I look forward to every moment of my life. I look at every problem that comes my way as a challenge instead of an excuse for a block of dairy milk chocolate. Nothing seems to hard anymore. After the retreat I don’t seem to get angry at little things, I don't feel like a volcano ready to explode, I have an inner peace that I haven't felt for years. It’s hard to explain, I just feel calm. I went to the gym today and saw all my gym buddies. They couldn't work out why I looked so different and it's not just the fat I have burnt. Its a glow that comes from being truly happy. I have meet some beautiful people I am proud to call my friends. I fell confident again. My family have noticed a huge difference in me. I am a better mother, wife and friend. I have so much energy and look forward to doing so much more with my life. It has being a new beginning. I am grabbing it with both hands a running with it. Thankyou does not seem enough

Saturday night at the retreat was the first time in 7 years that I have slept through the pain of a shattered right foot. The whole weekend at Little Forest brought me relief and a positive attitude to go on and control the pain by listening to the MP4 player. The portion sizes over the weekend have shown me how to eat sensibly and how to improve what I eat and how I eat it. I can’t thank you both enough.

Kind Regards Tonia-Anne Gray

“The Hypnotic Lap Band retreat for me was monumentally life changing - not just in weight loss but in all areas of my life. It has given me renewed strength of purpose and a freedom to be and do all that I need to do to keep me eating right, exercising right and thinking right. I have focus and purpose in my achievements, and yes I honestly can say, I have lost the hang ups about perceived put downs by others - I am who I am  - like me or leave me. It is so freeing and mind blowingly exciting.” Helen - South Australia
