Two most important things to start a hypnotherapy session

Are “Breathing” and “Looking” the two most important things to start a hypnotherapy session? When arriving for a therapy session the main thing on our mind is the uncomfortable feelings we have been experiencing. After all we are there to resolve those issues. Whether it is stress, anxiety, depression, panic attacks or a phobia these are the problems we want to solve. But are they the issues we should work on first? Or are we missing other equally important areas that would be better to start with. If we think about it there are two things that are happening constantly in our lives and certainly without one of them we would not even have a life. They are looking and breathing. And put like that we begin to realise the importance of this. Because, if I am not literally and metaphorically “looking in the right place” then I am inputting

How Hypnotherapy can help Tinnitus

Tinnitus is an extremely debilitating experience that for many people takes over virtually every moment of their life. Tinnitus can be triggered from a physical source (e. g. loud noise) or an emotional source that we may not even remember or recognise. If you are suffering from tinnitus I don’t need to tell you how uncomfortable the experience is and I had personally suffered from Pulsatile Tinnitus (hearing the sound of your own heartbeat in your ears) for a long time before using my experience as a therapist to virtually eliminate it altogether. I had, in the past, read how hypnosis could help with tinnitus but felt there were too many gaps in the information presented. At the time this did not convince me that it would necessarily help most people be able to improve their experience on a long term basis. However one of my favorite points of interest

Covid, Hypnotherapy and Health Anxiety

Since Covid spread around the world Health Anxiety is probably even more prevalent than ever before. However obsessive worrying about one’s health is nothing new and nothing unusual. But it can easily turn into an obsession that takes over one’s life. Continuously checking Google, worrying, looking for confirmation from friends, if these habits and more are taking over your life then it may be time to take a step back and ask yourself if you are not becoming obsessed with your health in an unhealthy way. Of course it is important that our first step is to get good medical advice and look after ourselves physically and emotionally. Unfortunately continuous worrying about one’s physical health for no apparent reason is not going to help our mental health. This worry will negatively impact both our mental and physical health and it will certainly diminish the pleasure of our own life. Bringing

Build Happiness into your Life with Hypnotherapy

Wouldn’t we all like to feel happier?   Now I’m not saying we should feel happy every moment of the day since that wouldn’t be possible  and wouldn’t be healthy for us. Feeling sad, bored, distracted etc are feelings that are hardwired into our brains for important  reasons. These are what I call primal feelings and all those uncomfortable feelings have been part of our makeup since our ancestors lived in caves or in the jungle. Circumstances were different in  those days! Let’s say they are feelings that are designed to keep us safe in the jungle and enable us  to act appropriately to the dangers and different life situations that would occur there. However we are not living in the jungle now, BUT we are in effect living in a different jungle and  these primal instincts are still extremely strong. In fact they are hard wired to kick in unconsciously

Seven Chakras

How modern Hypnotherapy and EFT can be used with the ancient Chakra system

The origins of the seven chakras probably began in India around 1500 to 500 BC. They relate to seven points in the body starting at the base of the spine and traveling to the crown of the head. They are depicted as 7 whirling balls of energy located along a line starting at the base of the tailbone and ending just above the top of the head. Each chakra has its own colour and each chakra represents particular aspects of our physical, spiritual and mental well being. 1   Root Chakra 2   Sacral Chakra 3   Solar Plexus Chakra 4   Heart Chakra 5   Throat Chakra 6   Third Eye Chakra 7   Crown Chakra Survival, Security Pleasure, Sexual Centre Seat of your Personal Power Love and Connection Communication,Truth Intuition and Inner wisdom Higher consciousness and Spirituality Red Orange Yellow Green Blue Indigo Violet The idea is that

Alchol Addiction

Hypnosis for Addictions

Hypnosis is an extremely powerful tool in helping anyone recover from an addiction. Whether it be alcohol addiction, gambling addiction or drugs. In fact any addiction (and there are many) is very suitable for treatment with hypnosis. However to get help for addictions and achieve the results the client is expecting the route to success is in the quality of the therapy and the desire of the client to engage in the process of letting go of their addiction. We have all seen the street hypnotist appear to immediately put a passer by into a deep trance. Although that is possible there really are only about 10% of the population who will respond this way. Impressive but obviously it’s not therapy. Therapy implies that there is work to be done and of course that is the case. The words “Sleep” from a hypnotist are not likely to change anyone’s mind
