What do you need to give up?

What do you need to give up? Do you often think you should be giving up something? Often you might think of giving up certain foods, or giving up eating too much. Sometimes overeating can be a symptom of other issues that could be going on in your life. Examples could be conflict either in work, with family or friends. When we feel stressed, or unable to deal with the conflict, or even be forced to continue relationships with those people you would rather give up. Many people say when they end a relationship they feel a huge release. They have [...]

What happens when you complete the course?

Many newly qualified therapists wonder what happens when you complete the course and can feel a lack of confidence when starting their new practice. They are concerned that they may not remember all the things they have learned. It’s particularly true if you are learning hypnotherapy and NLP at the same time. That is, if you are learning a recognised NLP course and not just a few techniques that have been included in a hypnotherapy course. There is a lot to remember and recall when undertaking a professionally accredited NLP course. It’s best to take one step at a time, [...]

Some thoughts about one to one training

I have been having some thoughts about one to one training and what makes it such an attractive option for many people. Having conducted many successful group training courses in Hypnotherapy and NLP over the last 10 years I thought about offering the option of one to one training at the end of 2015. I have been pleasantly surprised by how many people have taken up this option. Robert suggested that one of the things that happens in group training is that the brightest people may be brought down to the average level of the group, and maybe resented by [...]

Mind Associates confidence workshop

It was a great pleasure to be asked to create a confidence workshop for Mind Associates on Tuesday 27 May. 25 people took part and we explored how you find the confidence to do the things you would like to do. It was fun and enjoyable. Everyone participated and went away with some ideas to improve their thought processes and manage the negatives in life.

How can you trust a Hypnotherapist?

One way you can trust a hypnotherapist is to make sure they have the correct training. Anything less than what is termed as the 'Gold' standard in training is what you would initially look for. The Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma is the Gold standard in training. A properly recognised UK certification from the National Council for Hypnotherapy will offer this. It is vital you do receive the best, is anything less worth it. Look out for those therapists who display this kind of certification. A therapist who is also certified properly to use NLP will be best for you too. Some [...]

Extra strength non- deceptive placebo

Extra strength non- deceptive placebo Hypnosis has often been referred to as the placebo effect. Horizon programme featured hypnosis as the placebo effect, and demonstrated tooth extraction without any drugs. Hypnosis is the ultimate placebo as the client is aware of what changes need to happen. Medical intervention using placebos rely on deceiving the patient, which is fine if it works. The reason is does work is that the Dopamines in our brain are activated and produce our own bodies natural pain relievers. One thing the Horizon programme revealed is that the placebo works better if the GP or consultant [...]

How much is your relationship worth

How much is your relationship worth Is your relationship worth £5 10 or 20? Morrisons had a wide shelf of roses all different prices. Is there an assumption that the worth of the relationship is worth what you pay? Relationships will always be a work in progress. You can't take them for granted. When you do they start falling apart. A friend told me that she found that some people only focus on the negatives in any relationships, and forget to look at the bigger picture. When people do this to you, they are not worth your time and energy. [...]
