" Achievement Through Excellence "

'Dementia, Alzheimers, Hypnosis, Addictions, Depression, Relationships, Smoking, CBT, Hypnotherapy are just a small number of issues covered at the Elite Clinic in Fuengirola. Achievement Through Excellence' is what it says on the small sign outside the entrance to the Elite Clinic in Fuengirola, and that philosophy, and the daily commitment to total client satisfaction is, we strongly believe, the reason the clinic has achieved such a remarkable international reputation. We understand that every client ultimately has a choice with whom to place their trust and with whom they wish to work, so the fact that they have chosen Elite, ensures that each one is treated as an individual, with respect and total confidentiality.

We opened the doors of the Elite Clinic on Spain's Costa del Sol in 2004. The plan was to offer therapy and assistance only to English speaking residents. In all honesty nothing could have prepared us for the amazing journey that lay ahead of us. The success stories of the clinic and our unique approach was quickly covered on television and in print media on both sides of the Atlantic. This resulted in the situation that we still find ourselves in today, welcoming international clients that have flown in exclusively to be treated at the clinic on a weekly basis.

Following the media interest in the developments at the clinic, Martin and Marion signed an international, multi-title, publishing contract with Hay House the worlds leading Mind Body Publishers . The first two books, entitled 'The Gastric Mind Band: The Proven, Pain Free Alternative to Weight Loss Surgery', and 'Pause Button Therapy', were published internationally becoming best selling titles. It was in 2008 that we started the initial research into our groundbreaking and now internationally acclaimed Gastric Mind Band® permanent weight loss therapy, which we now provide at our clinic in Spain, and at a growing number of prestigious licensed clinics around the world.

During March 2018, following the attendance at the Post Graduate Training in London, with Dr Daniel Nightingale, we will be proud to be providing the new proven Hypnotherapy approach around the treating of Dementia. Read more here.
