What to expect from Hypnotherapy

June 22nd, 2016

A short podcast (audio) about hypnotherapy

A little while ago, through my personal development podcast, I decided to give a brief insight of what to expect or look for when considering hypnotherapy – well from my point of view, which is all I can give. I wanted people to know that whatever your issues, Hypnosis, NLP and Time Line Therapy(TM) can usually help and with such a great effect. No one should put up with not feeling how they want to feel  and so few know what’s really available from the wealth of good hypnotherapists around.

For some, you may be considering going to a hypnotherapist. Well, I thought you may want to have a heads up on to what to look for. These are only my thoughts and opinions so they are obviously based on what I have experienced or learnt along the way and I know there are other thoughts and opinions – I can only share you mine.

Most think of stopping smoking or weight loss when thinking of working with a hypnotherapist and in my experience these are the smaller percentages of client base. Anxiety, panic, depression, OCD, social phobia. PTSD, you fill in the blank etc are all emotional states and behaviours that part and parcel of what are helped overcome.

The most important thing to remember is – you’re NOT broken and do NOT need curing! There are so many great hypnotherapists around doing great work and helping people getting back on track. Go seek one out and make great changes to your life.

You deserve to create the life you wish for and getting a little help just makes that a little quicker.

Here’s the podcast

learning to forget people with hypnotherapy

July 27th, 2015

Changing the way you remember with Cambridge Hypnotherapy

We love to share our clients successes and their concerns. If we can help you see and feel the benefits of changing the way you feel to a way that you want feel and know how quick and easy it can be then it makes our job with you easier and quicker.

Here’s something that we think will give you the confidence to ask us how we can help you and knowing that we can……help you.

Last week I worked with another wonderful client. From the initial consultation she said she wanted to forget someone from her past – completely. No memory of that person, as if they never existed.

So let’s rewind to the initial consultation and this request. Could I or indeed anyone make a person disappear from your memories or past? I actually feel it probably is possible but this is where my training and some may call it code of ethics or simply best practise; because you see just because something may be possible doesn’t make it right when you consider the implications, the effects.

You see, consider if we did this together what would people think of my client when she denied ever having been with this person? What would my client be saying to herself when they saw photographs of the two of them together? You’re mad or “am I going mad?”

Even more important to me and the way I work is if we learn from every experience we won’t make the same mistake again. Imagine this client meeting the same type of person again and again and being totally unfulfilled. Oh…….. Isn’t that what some people actually do and you hear them saying “ I just don’t seem to meet someone different and end up with same old same old!” what an outlook to have!!

So……….although this client was continuing to question their want to have this person disappear from their memories I stood fast and continued to explain and reframe the need to learn from our experiences and that in some way that person taught us something valuable, only valuable however, if we choose to learn and use those learnings in the future.

So what happened??????

One session, yes in only one session this client did a fantastic job of working with me and let go of all those negative feelings. Feeling different in the therapy office/room is one thing but to have the changes in the real world outside is the only real test to know the work we have done together has really worked. So one week later having really gone out and tested our work, their work really as they have to do all the work, 100% result and usually happens other areas of their life had begun to get better too. A double/triple whammie (however you spell that??)

As usual if you wish to experience changes like these, or any other for that matter get in touch and come along for one of our complimentary consultations and find out how you can……..change now!!!!

How long to let go of bad emotions ~Cambridge Hypnotherapy

March 7th, 2015

Clearing negative emotions with NLP, Time Line Therapy(TM) and Hypnosis

I am continually amazed how long we (that’s all of us) can hold onto old negative emotions. Hold on to them even when we think they’re gone. How do I know this? I’ll tell you in a minute.

The thing is these negative emotions continue to affect our quality of life and the decisions we make. Like a snow ball, they start of very small and as life rolls on they get bigger and bigger and for some then it’s just overwhelm.

So how do I know this? Time Line Therapy™ that’s how. Now this probably makes no sense to you at all, unless you know about TLT.

So let’s make a little sense out of this. When working with a client who is suffering from anxiety, which is really fear of what has happened in the past will repeat in the future, we may use Time Line Therapy ™ processes.

A typical session would also include dealing with anger and sadness and although nearly every clients says well I’m not really an angry or sad person, when we look a little deeper we find memories from years ago that still hold those emotions. Because the processes work so quickly, normally around 5-10 minutes for each emotion, we can really clear the entire unconscious blocks that were all part of the problem and different processes may not so cleanly achieve. That’s what and why I like Time Line Therapy™, it’s thorough, quick and my clients are always comfortable in the change process.

Just so you know why they remain comfortable ~ it’s because my clients never go to any negatively charged memory and relive it. I know some therapist have the client do this but I don’t agree with this and I won’t let my clients be anything other than comfortable when making changes. In fact all of here at Cambridge Hypnotherapy we all have the same philosophy to make change, whatever or however bad the initial feelings our clients are experiencing it isn’t necessary to feel bad when we let them go and we won’t let our clients re-experience what caused the problem, we know too many better ways to work with clients.

Here’s a little tester:

Think of a specific memory of anger that when you think of it you can rate that anger out of 10. 10 being totally angry and 0 being completely neutral.

Have you done that? If you have and it’s not a 0 then you’re carrying around anger and it will affect what and how you act or react to greater or lesser degrees. If you notice how long ago that memory was and it may be years then it is probably time to let it go.

A Master Class in NLP and Hypnosis in Cambridge

February 23rd, 2015

A Master Class in NLP and Hypnosis with a difference!

This February it was so nice to be able to share the things that we do, within our Hypnotherapy Clinics in Cambridge and Bournemouth, to our Students who have become Practitioners with us.

This time was a little different as, with Joseph being in the USA and unable to attend Luke (Clough), yes there’s a bunch of us Cloughs around helping change clients problems quickly and comfortably, came and co-trained with me.

I’m so fortunate to be able to share the things we feel make the difference and have a wonderful rapport with my sons whilst doing so. It always amazes me how supportive we are to each other, wanting each other to excel ahead of ourselves. And it’s this that I feel makes a difference to our training courses and produces things like this

galaxies apart from the rest!

Massive gratitude and thanks to the talented Paul Clough and Luke Clough for the amazing NLP Master Class this wk end! Your skill and passion for helping others overcome their fears and limited beliefs knows no bounds and your exceptional training abilities and enthusiasm to see your practitioners get the best results sets you galaxies apart from the rest! Nat Harrison 1/2/15

And it’s comments like the one above and the enthusiasm show by all our practitioners spurs me on to find even better ways to learn NLP and Real Hypnosis that is useful from the very start and fun, creative and motivational.

Sometimes it’s just the reminding of the simple things that work so well but just need a little practice and more importantly ownership that can create real change. It’s how to make this practice without pressure or anxiety but with a passion to enjoy it all :o)

So be aware if you’re considering NLP and learning Hypnosis it may seriously affect you health……………………IN A GOOD WAY

 

 

Getting positive results with (Cambridge) Hypnotherapy

February 14th, 2015

Little steps to a full life of achievement

We’ve noticed lately that so many people when trying to either reach a goal or make changes in their life, with the best of intentions, go about it in a way that almost always ends up in failure!

What a great shame when we see what we want in life, read about it and dream of having it only to be another “I wish” or even worse “If only I’d persisted a little more”

There’s a sure fire way to stop this happening and it’s the same process we teach my clients here at Cambridge Hypnotherapy when they leave to really test our work together.

Before we get to this small but powerful and successful way let’s just take a moment to set the scene for both scenarios.

Achieving your goals ~ We are told in many books and such things as the Law of Attraction etc. to set our goals big and I mean BIG! And I agree whole heartily in this too. We live in our ‘adult Heads’ all day and are prepared to settle for something less than we deserve.

However, if we were to adopt a child’s imagination where anything and everything is possible we dream both Big and also with total freedom and acceptance -That’s the real magic of a dream!! When we do this we can literally feel what it will be like to achieve the dream that’s now a goal.

We can then, if we know the steps, can now work backwards, That’s right backwards, and work out what needs to happen just before achieving our goal and then the step before that and then the step before that and then….. well you get the picture.

But if we don’t know the steps does that mean the goal is unachievable? ~ absolutely

~ NOT!

But so many think so, which means they don’t even begin or think of the largest first step and get scared or have a feeling of failure and give up, re-enforcing their old negative beliefs around failure and not being good enough and any other number of limiting negative beliefs you can think of now.

Testing our change work ~ We’ve noticed and been told of great change work being done in the office but in testing in the real world the client either picked a test way too big for a first test or got so anxious of the same sort of extreme thing to do they just gave up and again reinforced their previous old belief that was so nearly a thing of the past and just needed a gentle push away.

The PROCESS ~

In the paragraph above a mentioned ‘just a gentle push away’ and that’s the essence of the process. Being GENTLE with ourselves.

In both achieving our goals, which we now will call outcomes, and ratifying consciously the great changes you made in a therapy session the process is exactly the same and it is sooooooooo simple!!

In imagining the biggest outcome we desire we get to know what that will feel like when we get it – so simply hold that feeling.

Following our session my clients know what the feeling is they will have to succeed being their true selves so they are simple asked to remember and hold that feeling.

Then………

As you think of what to do, either towards your outcome or test of the change work, you simply hold that feeling and think or ask yourself for the smallest step towards the outcome you can make and still have this feeling and then just do it.

If you think of a step and that feeling is less intense or disappears it just means the step is too big, that’s all! So simply return to that feeling you will feel and think or ask for a smaller step that still retains that feeling for you and do that instead.

You will notice at first the steps will be minute and that’s absolutely correct but the thing is you will soon be leaping forward and always with that feeling which will lead you to your outcome and more.

As Neville Goddard so wisely wrote many years before

“Assume the wish fulfilled and act upon it”

Nothing to do with Hypnotherapy

February 6th, 2015

A new project from one of my sons that has come to fruition

so please enjoy and allow a proud father a little indulgence

Rescover is Here

Wohoo! As of Tuesday, Rescover is now available in the App Store

If you don’t know already, Rescover lets you discover things you love, and reminds you when and where they come out.

You can follow TV Shows, Movies, Music, Games, Books etc. Rescover will then keep you in the loop with official release dates, descriptions, trailers and most importantly – remind you when it comes out.

We’re really happy with what we put together and we have lots of ideas for how to make it even better. We’re going to be working on those over the coming weeks.

Our main focuses now are 1/ get people to download it 2/ talk to them and get feedback 3/ make it better. Repeat ;-)

It’s starting to sink in that building the first version was the easy bit (well easier bit). Getting people to download it and like it is where the real work comes in!

On that note, I have a small favour to ask. I’d love it if you could give it a whirl and let me know what you think. And if you like it, please let others know in any way you can. Every little bit is a great help!

Changing the way you feel with Cambridge Hypnotherapy

January 17th, 2015

Learn How to be happy with Cambridge Hypnotherapy

We (Luke, Paul & Joseph AKA Cambridge Hypnotherapy) have been helping clients, people just like you, to change the way you feel ~ from something uncomfortable and in some cases really bad to ways they enjoy. Some even say thier old self but even better!!

Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy and NLP are great ways to change your state, the way you feel. The thing is that we use the natural ways we do this but in a good way. Too often we can be ok and in a moment something happens which we’re not consciously aware of and our mood (state) changes. Well if this can happen in a negative way the good news is we can use the same process to go from negative to positive feelings. You might want to check out our website to find out more how we can help you in particular?

Before you do that…………………

Have you ever seen lists of how to be this or do that or improve this in your life?

Well, I’ve just spent a little time on the internet reading such things as…101 ways to be happy, 40 ways to be happy 6 ways to be happy and the list went on and on!

Wow and the thing is whilst being right in a way that is giving advice of where and how to find happiness in the world I got the impression they were all forgetting one thing.

One thing Paul what’s that?
The one thing that appeared to be missing was to me the most important ~ shall I tell you now or later?
Well all these ways we telling people to do this and do that to experience happiness (Oh by the way this means I’ll tell you later) Yes you can go do these things but if you’re not feeling happy right now will you I doubt it. If you’re feeling low, down or depressed I know you won’t because it’s hard to imagine taking all that effort.

Now you may be thinking right now where’s this going? If all these articles are missing something what is it?

Now here’s the thing
You can go anywhere and everywhere to try to find happiness but the thing is you will only find it in one place. Looking for it outside isn’t where it is.

Where is happiness? True happiness?
It’s with you all the time, it’s in you and has been since you were created! And when you feel it on the inside, everything on the outside changes and so does everyone around you. It’s infectious the best virus in the world. Here’s a quick example of that virus ~ A simple happy smile cannot not make someone smile too and every smile as happy feelings. It’s that simple to start.

If you want to go further you may want to do this. (you will have to read this first and remember what to do)
• Close your eyes
• Breathe gently and ask inside with your inner voice “What’s made me feel happy in the past, one specific time?” and you will remember a time in your mind.
• Jump back into that memory, into your body in that memory and see what you saw and hear what you heard and FEEL the FEELINGS NOW.
• Double the feeling and double them again and smile on the inside and outside too.
• Do this again a couple of times maybe with a different memory and always finish with a smile on the most intense happy feelings.

Now to test:
Clear you mind and think of anything different your phone number backwards for example
Then
SMILE ~ Smile just like you did and…………………………………
Notice how you feel now.

Unfortunately you are now anchored in (something we teach in our NLP trainings)
Every time you smile you’re going to feel this intense happy feeling (what a shame) and you may just create happy feelings in everyone you smile at too.

Stoptober is nearly upon us!

September 17th, 2014

So it’s coming up to that time of year again, Stoptober! A month where smokers decide to stop smoking for 28 consecutive days, with the aim of staying a non smoker at the end of the challenge!

Apparently the Stoptober national campaign claims that if you stop smoking for a period of 28 days then you are 5 times more likely to remain a non smoker than someone who decides to just quit. Personally I think we would all have to agree that if you stopped doing something, or for that matter even started doing something for 4 weeks then you would find it easier to maintain this new behaviour than if you stuck to it for just a few days. For example, someone that simply stopped going to the pub on their way home from work every day for a month would start to not even think about stopping off… their new routine would simply be get in the car, arrive home. I know that when I have wanted to start hitting the gym more regularly, once I have been training and stuck to my plan for a few weeks then this becomes my new habit/routine and I start to feel bad, disappointed, and even annoyed/angry if I have to miss a workout for whatever reason.

Because of these factors, I think Stoptober CAN be a good programme, but only if used in the right way. For those that want to see it as a way to make it easier to stay a non smoker then GREAT, do it and I wish you every bit of success with it. However, where it falls down in my eyes is for those that see it as a challenge knowing that in 28 days they will be able to start smoking again. I think we all know of someone who has fasted before or stuck to an 8 week bootcamp/diet routine, and they are counting down the days until they can eat a nice big bar of chocolate again. Those people are the ones that I feel will be taking the Stoptober challenge each year, whereas in theory you should only ever need to take this challenge ONCE in your life!

So, lets say no to Stoptober but yes to StopForever, seems like a much better plan of action to me 🙂

If you think Cambridge Hypnotherapy can help you stop smoking, stop drinking alcohol, or start to lose weight why not contact us by clicking here or calling 01223 720 120 and find out just how easy it can be!

Successful Hypnotherapy in 2 Sessions in Cambridge

Successful Hypnotherapy in 2 Sessions

Yes that’s right you can make the changes to your life and be the way you want ~

Quickly and Easily

Here’s just two recent examples of clients testimonials from my recent work in Bournemouth

Bournemouth Hypnotherapy Clinic is our sister clinic and we carry on the work just as we do in Cambridge .

“I went to Bournemouth Hypnotherapy Clinic when I had exhausted all other ideas of how to overcome a personal issue. Apprehensive about the experience I met Paul for a free, no obligations consultation and was instantly put at ease about the process and knew from that moment this was the course of treatment for me.

After just two sessions I am now at a place where I am happy and I know that my issue will be resolved soon enough, as it is so much better following the sessions that I have had. Paul touches upon the wider issues surrounding the problem and therefore resolves some underlying situations that may be having an impact on your life also.

Others around me have noticed a difference as well and after battling for 8 years, in just 3 hours of hypnotherapy, I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel!!!!

Thank you so much Paul. “

SG Bournemouth

AND ANOTHER………………….

“I have had 2 sessions of hypnotherapy from Paul and I have found these 2 sessions have changed my way of thinking and life. I suffered from anxiety and found I couldn’t be in public places. These 2 sessions have completely changed my views on life and different situations. I would completely recommend Paul’s hypnotherapy to anyone and you find instant results. I am now able to be in public places without worrying or suffering from any panic attacks. Thank you again Paul.”
