ABOUT Grant Bodle
If you can't find a date & time that suits you, please contact me on 0274544220 & I will try to accomodate you.
I'm a Clinical Hypnotherapist, a VGB - Virtual Gastric Band Practitioner, Weight Loss Coach, Personal Trainer (Level 5), and a qualified Nutritionist. I'm passionate about helping people change their mindset, habits and subconscious programs to live a healthy, successful life.
In my 20’s and 30’s, I was a fit healthy adult - playing sport six days a week. But by the time I hit 40, like many people around that age, I struggled with my weight.
I had a tyre around my middle, was tired all the time, and always hungry – even after eating. At 117kg & 1.86m, I was obese, pre-diabetic, suffered from exercised induced asthma, and had high blood pressure (170/110). Basically I was on my way to a heart attack.
I knew I had to try something different - something that changed my mindset. After just a few sessions with a hypnotherapist, I could stick to a diet, with no cravings, and exercise became part of my daily routine, without any struggle. I have now lost 23kg and feel like I did in my 20's.
Now, I have retrained in hypnotherapy, coaching, all things nutrition and fitness based and am a healthy 94kg (a 23kg loss in a year.) I now have normal blood pressure under 110/75, have no asthma symptoms, and my hunger levels are normal.
I can help you achieve the results you want, by changing your subconscious programs to lose weight reduce stress, overcome addictions, and create lifelong nutrition and exercise habits, that will help you achieve the the results you are after. I look forward to chatting with you soon to give you the knowledge and advice you need for weight loss, reducing your stress and anxiety, and motivating you to change your life for the better…

Reviews and Testimonials:
My experience with Grant at Mind Body Health Hypnotherapy was overwhelmingly positive. His holistic approach to my issues has helped me to look at life very differently and in a much more positive way. The benefits so far have been apparent not just to myself but to family and friends. I fully recommend a session with Grant

Grant's VGB Program really does work!!! I lost 5kgs the first week and 2-3 kgs per week on an ongoing basis. Gave me great information and support. Best of all I didn’t feel deprived or hungry. I did follow all his instructions to get the success I have always wanted. 3 Months on and I am still going strong. Have to buy some smaller clothes now.

At a weight of 97kg I knew I needed to do something about it. I exercised and changed my eating / drinking habits. I lost a couple of kilograms but then got stuck. I had heard about the virtual gastric band hypnotherapy and I thought I would give it a go. Grant has a lovely calming way about him that totally puts you at ease. A discussion is had about your health, and what you want to achieve.
Then you have a lovely warm blanket put over you in a lazy boy chair and you get hypnotised. People have asked how do you know if you can get hypnotised. It worked for me and I can’t see why it wouldn’t work. You are still aware of what is going on but just in a very relaxed state, listening to some relaxing background music and Grant's voice. If you want to scratch your nose you can. You don’t feel like you are out of control as that is not the case. The course is 4 sessions spread over a few weeks, you get audio recordings of the sessions so you can play them back.
You also get some nutrition advice which is also very helpful and is part of what makes this program work. I have over a period of time changed my eating and drinking habits and lost 12kgs in approx 3 months. But more importantly the hypnotherapy has changed the cortex of the brain that means I now eat and drink less. I also don’t snack. I continue to lose weight at a steady rate which is great. I think if I exercised more this would all happen a bit quicker. I highly recommend this process if you want to make a change that does works, and is easy to keep up.

Just want to say thank you for the “magic” you performed. I must admit, I was a bit sceptical prior to our first meeting. But after trying various ways to drop some kilos, to no avail, I thought I had nothing to lose. Well, now being 8 weeks down the track and 20kgs lighter, I guess I have to say I’m a believer. I would thoroughly recommend your services, and you have been great to work with. The whole process has been a breeze and I cannot believe the will power I have gained. I’m still dropping steadily, and the cravings I initially had are definitely decreasing constantly.
Once again, thanks for your help. Regards,

Grant, I just wanted to thank you for helping me lose weight. I have struggled to lose weight since having kids who are now adults, and to lose 15kg in the first 6 weeks has been nothing but miraculous! I feel amazing, and I know I can lose the last 7kg to get to my goal weight before Christmas 2020. You are very knowledgeable at all things nutrition and fitness, you put me at ease, and you have a relaxed, friendly and professional manner. Thank you so much!

I have lost 6.5kgs in a month and for the first time believe i will achieve a total loss of 25kgs, simply and efficiently. Hypnosis has helped me feel in total control of my body; Grant has also helped me focus on correct eating plans and habits that have been easy and enjoyable to follow! I already have 3 friends following my footsteps with Grant, such is my success and wellness! People tell me i look extremely relaxed happy and full of life! That is how i feel!! Thank you Grant from an extremely happy customer (who doesn’t miss either wine nor bread unbelievably!) I thoroughly recommend this weight loss process!!! Do it!!!
Grant is totally amazing!! Its been 3 months since I started my weight loss journey with the Virtual Gastric Band Hypnotherapy and I have lost 18.5kg thanks to Grant’s expertise! I can totally recommend his services and I have done so with many of my friends.
Grant, thank you so much for my therapy sessions. I’ve lost 12 kg in 13 weeks and have reached my goal weight. My friends can’t believe it. It’s more than hypnosis. Grant is multiple avenues of help rolled into one big injection of help in four easy VGB sessions.
I highly recommend Grant services unreservedly. I left my appointments feeling relaxed, confident and more focused about losing weight. I feel so much better armed the knowledge and a new perspective about myself and my future. I have lost 7.8kg in 3 weeks. Grant was able to get me on the right path and did so in a thoroughly competent, understanding manner.
Thank you so much for helping me reduce my alcohol intake. I noticed major improvement after the first Hypnotherapy session!
I really enjoyed my weight loss session Grant. I have started listening to the audios you sent me and they have been a big help. I also feel like my appetite is under control.
Grant is very skilled and has a very relaxing soothing voice and manner. The gastric band package has made a huge difference to my appetite and food choices and I am on the way to my goal weight. The room, chair and atmosphere in his office is so comfortable and elegant.
