What I really do in a hypnotherapy session and what I really don’t do!

Just a few words to tell you one or two things about the work I do and what I don’t do. So let’s start  first with what I don’t do.  I don’t do one stop, close your eyes, snap my fingers change…why? Because I want to be sure the  changes we make will last. I don’t do hypnosis tricks such as making clients forget their name. However I do give my clients  hypnotic words and phrases, ideas and valuable understandings that can really help improve the  quality of their experiences on a daily basis. I do therapy that works, trance that works, hypnosis that works, Neuro Linguistic Programming,  Emotional Freedom Technique and Eye Movement reprocessing. These are techniques that work. I encourage all my clients to take the information we work on in each session and practise it at  home to help them improve the present and the future for

Could breathing and looking be among the most important things to improve in our lives?

What have you been doing all day? Looking where you are going I presume. What have you been doing all day and all night? Breathing I hope. Looking and breathing are fundamental to our lives yet it is very easy to take them for granted. Think about it, if we aren’t “looking in the right place” and not breathing efficiently then we are spending a large part of our lives running our physical and mental systems inefficiently. This can lead to physical and mental issues, less control over our daily experiences and less pleasure and fulfillment in our daily lives. In my hypnotherapy, EFT and holistic therapy sessions these areas are two of the most important starting points and foundations for helping clients heal on any level. For instance, using our peripheral vision helps us engage our vagus nerve and the parasympathetic relaxation part of our autonomic nervous system. However,

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
