A mother has lost four stones, (56 pounds), in weight after being hypnotised into thinking she has a gastric band fitted.
Marion Corns, 35, paid £780 for five sessions with a specialist hypnotherapist after her weight ballooned to 15st 6lbs.
The treatment involved her being 'put under' and talked through every step of the medical procedure as if she were in a real operating theatre.

At the end she was told her stomach had been shrunk to the size of a golf ball — and her brain has accepted the illusion.
In the four months following the treatment Marion saw her weight drop to just over 11 and a half stone and her dress size from a 22 to 14.
The mum-of-three says she now feels full if she tries to eat anything other than a small portion of food.
