The company was established to continue the research and development of a downloadable version of the globally recognised Gastric Mind Band treatment (GMB). GMB was the brainchild of Martin and Marion Shirran. They provided the treatment for over fifteen years at their clinic, which was located in Southern Spain. They have treated in excess of a thousand individuals, accumulating over 15,000 1:1 clinical treatment hours. The new product My Weigh Less (MWL) has been developed as a completely downloadable version of their programme, incorporating many of the treatment protocols of GMB.

The story began in 2004 when Martin and Marion Shirran opened their Elite Clinic in Southern Spain. Their initial focus extended beyond weight loss, encompassing a range of conditions, including addictions like cocaine, alcohol, and nicotine. However, it was their groundbreaking weight-loss treatment that garnered widespread media acclaim.

In 2007, the Shirrans focused their attention on developing a psychology-based weight-loss treatment: the “Gastric Mind Band.” Recognising the need for non-surgical, risk-free, weight-loss alternatives, they committed their personal resources to finance research, development, and real-person trials of their innovative programme. The result was a treatment programme that incorporated a blend of proven therapies, including their enhanced version of cognitive behaviour therapy, which they ingeniously intertwined, developing an underpinned technique that helped them achieve an elevated level of success.

The Shirrans weight-loss approach has become the treatment of choice by many medical specialists, including doctors, dentists, nurses, anaesthetists and consultant surgeons. You may like to read more details on our Medical Endorsements page.

Their unique approach also drew inspiration from Time Perspective Theories developed by Professor Philip Zimbardo at Stanford University, San Francisco, and the latest research findings on Neuroplasticity, enhanced by advances in brain-imaging technology. Professor Zimbardo invited them to present details of their work at several university presentations.

The Shirrans’ pioneering treatment included their distinct underpinning technique, complemented by their in-house developed Forensic Weight-Loss Questionnaire. Remarkably, the success rate of their treatment proved comparable to weight-loss surgery, but at a fraction of the cost and without the need for a general anaesthetic, ensuring a completely risk-free experience. The world took notice as national newspapers, magazines, and lifestyle TV shows showcased the programme’s impressive results.

Global Media Interest

Interest in the new downloadable MWL has arisen from a number of maybe unusual sectors. It is receiving an ever-growing global interest from both orthopaedic surgeons and their patients who have been identified as being likely to benefit from pre-surgery weight loss ahead of hip or knee replacement surgery. Interest in the unique psychology-focused treatment has also arisen in the corporate sector. The annual cost of workforce obesity to corporate institutions runs into billions of pounds in the UK alone. Obesity is, of course, both a preventable and treatable condition. The medically endorsed GMB/MWL programme is non-surgical, does not involve any pharmaceutical intervention and is based on sound science. The product is entirely downloadable; it can be completed on any device, mobile phone, tablet or desktop computer. It is, of course, available globally.

Collaboration with World Leaders

In a momentous stride forward for healthcare, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recently gave its nod of approval to Tirzepatide, a medication that promises to reshape the landscape of type 2 diabetes treatments. With an estimated 180,000 individuals in the UK poised to benefit from this milestone decision, Tirzepatide’s significance goes far beyond diabetes management. It presents an exciting opportunity for collaboration with Oxford Therapeutics Ltd and their innovative “My Weigh Less” psychology-focused downloadable weight-loss treatment.

Healthcare Landscape Evolves

As the healthcare landscape evolves with this ground-breaking diabetes treatment, Oxford Therapeutics’ “My Weigh Less” psychology-focused, downloadable weight-loss programme has emerged as the ideal complement. While weight-loss injections are effective during use, the risk of weight “creep” and regain persists. Therefore it is believed that a psychology-focused intervention, like “My Weigh Less,” is the correct model to ensure sustained success in weight management alongside Tirzepatide’s diabetes management. Together, they offer a beacon of hope for millions in the UK, promising improved health outcomes and a brighter future.

Up-Grade to Cognitive Behavior Therapy

In 2009, Martin and Marion began to research and develop PBT, which was an upgrade to traditional CBT, and the foundation of TactileCBT®. PBT is a vital part of their psychology-focused weight-loss treatment. Its inclusion as the core element of the treatment also ensures their treatment programme remains totally unique. Their upgrade to CBT was featured in Psychologies Magazine.

Our weight-loss approach has been the subject of continued research and development over the last thirteen years. Sharon, above, lost 75 pounds. Our youngest client was just fourteen, and the oldest was eighty-six. Some clients wished to lose just a few pounds to fit into their wedding dress. But others, like Sarah below, went on to lose over 140 pounds. As a result, she was featured globally on TV and in the press.

Our psychology-focused weight loss programme provides a ‘Psychological Reset’ for those wishing to lose weight. The programme incorporates an updated version of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, TCBT, which is the subject of our bestselling book, published globally by Hay House. Professor Windy Dryden of Goldsmiths University in London endorsed the book, and Professor Philip Zimbardo of Stanford University in the USA wrote the foreword. We also incorporate the latest developments around Neuroplasticity and Neuro-Linguistic Programming along with many other disciplines. One component of our psychology-focused weight loss programme provides a ‘Psychological Reset’. At this statement, ‘Psychological Reset,’ we have observed many people raising their eyebrows; see below.

Oxford Therapeutics Limited

Let me give you a couple of examples: the programme will allow you to make a number of simple cognitive changes in your thought processes…small changes that deliver ‘massive results’. For example, think for a moment how different your relationship with food and weight loss would be if we re-programmed your subconscious mind to effortlessly replace the word “want” with the word “need”?

The result: imagine you are out having dinner with friends, ordering a burger. Instead of hearing the waiter asking: “Do you ‘want’ fries with that?” without thinking, you hear and automatically process the question as: “Do you ‘need’ fries with that?” Things would be very different, right? You see, at a cognitive level, we process those words differently. Later, maybe the waiter says, do you ‘want’ another glass of wine? You, of course, hear and cognitively process the word stream as do you ‘need’ another glass of wine. You can watch an animated video explaining ‘Want and Need’ and how it works at the bottom of this page.

Another ‘fix’ in the programme relates to just why people eat. So, during the programme, you will be asked when was the last time you ate in response to actual, physical hunger. Most people say: “Thinking about it, I haven’t been physically hungry for years”. And so we ask them: “Do you ever eat when you are bored, stressed, tired, lonely, depressed, sad, to reward yourself, when watching TV, or maybe just to please someone else?” Then, we do another reset, and so it goes on…
