Hypnosis has brought another dimension to my clinic. Clients have greater success with attaining their goals and you can too.
Who might benefit from hypnotherapy?
William Broom, The Chief Executive & Registrar of The General Hypnotherapy Register administered by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council, Lymington, England says:
'The answer to this question is 'virtually everyone'. Given that hypnotherapy can be utilised to access a person's inner potential and that probably no one is performing to their actual potential, then this answer is literally true. However, it is not just potential which Hypnotherapy is well placed to address but also one's inner resources to effect beneficial change. In this regard, it is the innate healing capacity of our own body that may be stimulated by Hypnotherapy. Consequently, the list of problems which may be amenable to Hypnotherapy is far too long and varied to catalogue but certainly includes: stress, anxiety, panic, phobias, unwanted habits and addictions...disrupted sleep patterns, lack of confidence and low self-esteem, fear of examinations and public speaking, allergies and skin disorders, migraine and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
The subconscious mind is phenomenally complex, yet it makes no distinction between destructive or constructive thought patterns. If you fill your head with negativity, fear, doubt, and disbelief in your ability to succeed, your subconscious mind will go to work to deliver this outcome for you. Conversely, feed your mind with positive thoughts and bingo! Try it.
Read this verse whenever you find yourself doubting your abilities, see how this resonates with you:
If you think you're beaten you are,
If you think you dare not, you don't
If you like to win, but you think you can't
Its almost certain you won't.
If you think you will lose, you're lost,
For out of the world we find,
Success begins with the fellow will -
Its all in the state of mind.
If you think you are outclassed you are
You've got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man
But sooner or later, the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can
10 Benefits of Hypnotherapy
The hypnotic state allows a person to be open to discussion and suggestion:
Post trauma anxiety
Recover buried memories
Grief and loss
Promote deep relaxation
Overcome habits/change behaviour: smoking; overeating etc.
The list is endless.
Hypnosis is not a dangerous procedure. It is not mind controlling or brainwashing. A therapist cannot make a person do something they don't want to do.
Clients often tell me that the experience is really pleasant and the added bonus of hypnotherapy is that the body releases endorphins the 'feel good factor' that heal and repair the body.
Who may benefit from hypnosis
Virtually anybody who is prepared to want to change - hypnotherapy can be utilised to access a persons inner potential to achieve beneficial change.
The human body is a self healing unit, hypnotherapy is able to tap into and stimulate ones healing resources to effect positive transformations.
We all have the ability to alter negative thoughts to make changes to alter our self beliefs that will continue for the rest of our lives.
Hypnosis uses guided relaxation, intense concentration and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness that is sometimes called a trance.
In the hypnotic state. People can elope painful thoughts, feelings, and memories they may have hidden from their concious mind.
Hypnosis enable people to perceive some things differently such as blocking an awareness of pain.
Suggestion therapy: the hypnotic state makes the person better able to respond to suggestion. Therefore hypnotherapy can help some people change certain behaviours such as stopping smoking or nail biting.
Clients report that hypnotherapy sessions are extremely relaxing and enjoyable and that the therapy has long lasting beneficial effects.
If you are in any doubt as to whether the therapy is suitable for you, have a chat with your doctor before booking with a therapist.
Achieve your Goals with the help of Hypnotherapy & Suggestion Therapy
One of the biggest problems in a society where there is an abundance of everything is that sometimes it is just TOO hard to say no!
If you lose the willpower, motivation and commitment to stick to a plan you will not achieve your goals.
Hypnotherapy can be used to access the unconscious mind which is the storage area of everything that takes place in our lives.
The conscious mind works through the here and now and processes what is currently taking place.
There is always a reason why our willpower fails or we develop fears and hypnotherapy works by relaxing the conscious mind and body so you can slip past the here and now 'judgemental & sometimes defiant conscious mind and work directly with the subconscious mind and mentally re-work an incident to obtain closure.
Once closure has been achieved clients are more able to move forward and live the life they want and achieve their goals.
With your 'will' and my 'power' together lets achieve your goals!

Fears are designed to protect us. If you have a bad experience, your mind may cause you to be afraid. The subconsicous mind is programmed to avoid pain, and anything which reminds you of a bad experience will be classified as pain.
The subconscous mind acts like a computer and simply links things together. You may not even be consciously aware of this linking process, but the next time a similar situation presents itself your subconscous mind will automatically alert you to possible trouble.
There may not be any trouble at all, but one of the jobs of the subconscious mind is to keep us away from pain so that we can emotionally and physically survive.
Thank goodness our minds have this capability...to help us steer clear of danger, so we learn by our mistakes and don't get hurt twice!
BUT, many times the programming becomes a problem. It can slow us down and fail to reflect our current situation. Certain situations don't always mean trouble....but until we change the programming..... we may avoid people and situations in which our subconsicous minds have labeled as scary!
Program Yourself for SUCCESS
Words have a profound effect on us so it is important to use positive words to help us to do our best.
Words are everywhere, we can declare war, declare love..........words move nations...... Winston Churchill, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King...........words surround us....we use them to communicate ...POSITIVE words can motivate......negative words can bring us down....
So.......... we can program ourselves for SUCCESS with POSITIVE words.......... BELIEVE AND I WILL ACHIEVE...................or we can program ourselves for failure.........'My life is going nowhere' ....
Words we say about ourselves are registered as fact by our subconscious mind. Whether or not they are valid is irrelevant. The subconscious mind does not know the difference between fact and fiction, right and wrong or good and bad. It simply stores data like a computer.
We have choices.............make them POSITIVE.
Talk POSITIVELY about your present, your future, and yourself....if you catch yourself using negative words....reword those phrases into something positive.
Surround yourself with positive people...
.......are there people in your life who bring you down?
.......who don't believe in your potential?.
.......who consistently talk you out of reaching higher?..
.......who want you to 'play it safe for your own good?.....
AVOID negative people and negative conversations and you will soon find your mind drifting toward positive ideas.
So much of our negative programming comes to us through the media......We passively watch and listen, but our subconscious mind records everything.
Control what you watch on TV, radio and read in the paper.........some networks have managed to train people to have anxiety on cue.....so control the box....
....Newpapers accomplish the same goal, raising our anxiety level....displaying tragedy as headline news.........take control of what goes in your head.
......There are real situations going on which need our attention.....but find ways to protect yourself from the constant barrage of negativity being aimed at us...
.......The information is often valid, but can be packaged in a very harmful way..... ......sensationalised..........events and topics in news stories and pieces are over-hyped to increase viewership or readership numbers........
....So become picky about who you allow to put information in your head......clear your mind of all the rubbish being aimed at it by yourself and others and then you will be better able to live your life on your own terms and help others........
