Hypnotherapy in Cambridge really works!

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

It’s great that our clients not only give us feed back on how they have changed they are also willing to share it with the world through allowing us to show it as testimonials.

We have had two this week and it’s only Wednesday morning!

Both Luke and I know it wasn’t what we both did that created the change in these and all our clients it was their desire to change and willingness to do whatever it takes that really made the change ~ They did it (with, we would like to think , a little help from our unique way of therapy)

“Hi Luke,
Sorry it has taken me a while to reply. I would like to say a massive massive thank you because my work with you has really made a big difference! I am feeling much more confident in a range of situations and am feeling better week by week”

“Dear Paul,

I wanted to let you know that I won’t be needing my next session as I feel extremely happy with what we covered, and I feel fantastic!! I am so grateful to you for helping me look at everyday as a positive and a happy one! Haven’t felt that way for such a long time!!!”

I know other people like to have testimonials to show ‘how good they are” but we see it differently and believe ours show:

  • what’s possible and give hope if hope were needed.
  • and to give encouragement to those who at the time of reading them feel isolated, lonely and and what we often hear looking for a last resort, a last chance.

And it’s been our experience that even the seemingly biggest problems, negative emotions/feelings do have simple and easy solutions when we are prepared not accept the way we feel and ready to do what it takes to change and have what we want for us.

Sometimes “have what we want for us”  can seem a little selfish doing this purely for us and no one else but when we feel back to being the real us and happy being us everyone around us gets to feel that good too! It this way it would be selfish to hold on to the old way,  not change for you and deny people seeing you at your happiest best.

We all deserve to have more happiness than you can stand (was that a hypnotic instruction? )

Hypnotherapy in Cambridge ~ Anxiety, feeling anxious a quick tip

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

I was reading some blogs about anxiety and some were sensationalist and talking about people in the music world etc. The thing is we all, yes all of us, suffer from anxiety in some way or other. For some it seems to propel them into action but I have the thought that this is an extreme way to motivate ourselves. Anxiety may be seen as a simple message from our unconscious minds to prepare for something and in that way have an intention to protect us and keep us safe.

One or the presuppositions of NLP is that ‘every behaviour has a positive intention’ and although the intention here is great, anxiety doesn’t make us feel safe or protected. So as we teach unconscious minds here at Cambridge Hypnotherapy ~ Keep that positive intention and find another way, an empowering way to behave. Knowing how to do this is our speciality which we developed and it works!

It’s great to read advice that comforts those who suffer from anxiety. There’s so much we can read from the internet and if we are careful in what we choose to read there are some very caring people out there sharing.

The thing is we all suffer to some extent although I guess when we feel really anxious we feel isolated and the only person in the world feeling like this.

Here’s a tip

When you begin to feel anxious close your eyes and remember a time when you felt in control and confident, a time when you succeeded. See what you saw then, hear what you heard and feel those feelings. Open your eyes and take some action ~ Now!

 This simple way that I hope helps, a sticking plaster or quick fix

If you however feel anxious often know that you can be helped to deal with those negative feelings easily and comfortably~ If not here with us then there’ll be someone near to you that can help

National No-Smoking Day

Wednesday, March 9th, 2011

Today, Wednesday March 9th 2011, marks No Smoking Day, so what better day than to decide to quit smoking with Cambridge Hypnotherapy. We here have helped countless ex smokers become free from their old daily habit, and start to enjoy the results form having given up smoking.

To start with, there is the financial benefit. The average smoker who smokes 20 a day will save around £2500 per year, and thats not even taking into account the ‘extras’ on nights out etc. What would you spend £2500 a year on if someone came up to you and handed it to you today? A car? Clothes? Maybe a nice holiday in the sun?

Then there is the undoubted health benefits of quitting smoking. In just 20 minutes an ex-smokers blood pressure and pulse would return back to normal. In just 24 hours carbon monoxide is eliminated from the body and the lungs will start to clear the build up of tar. Within 2-12 weeks circulation improves, making walking and running a lot easier. At 3-9 months all those nasty coughs, wheezing and breathing problems improve as the lungs increase their capacity for oxygen. Even the risk of heart attack is halved after 1 year of not smoking and after 10 years of quitting the risk of lung cancer is halved.

And lets not forget the appearance benefits? What would it be like to know that that smell s no longer lingering after you everywhere you go, or that the stains on the fingers have just disappeared? Maybe you would like to know that you’re gums are healthier and your teeth are whiter? Or knowing that you will no longer run the risk of premature ageing?

Giving up smoking doesn’t have to be hard, and using Cambridge Hypnotherapy will make it the easiest possible way for you. Using advanced levels of NLP, TimeLine Therapy and Hypnosis, we can help you achieve your goal of becoming a non smoker in only ONE session. We also offer all of our client a free initial consultation as well as giving you 2 CDs to help you on your journey

Resolving grief (hypnotherapy in Cambridge)

Monday, March 7th, 2011

 How long do we have to, need to grieve?

Some time ago I wrote about remembering in a different way which in no small way was brought about by my writing my own book about overcoming grief and a personal journey in resolving and moving on from grief.

You see we tend to immediately think as grief being caused by the loss of a loved one and so it is. The thing is there are so many more things that happen to us that cause us to grieve and create that hollow feeling inside. These can come from a myriad of losses such as:

  • the loss of a job
  • retirement and losing the feeling of being useful
  • someone leaving us but still alive
  • losing our home
  • losing a business we created
  • etc. etc. the list goes on.

There’s also the beliefs we have of how long should we grieve. Is it being disrespectful to only grieve for a short time and what will others think of us. All these factors create negative emotions within us, over and above that real grief feeling.

So with all that going on inside us it’s no wonder we suffer and usually in that isolated feeling of loneliness.

So that’s why I wrote my little piece following the progress of my ‘best friend’ until someone was brave enough to challenge me.

You tell the story of a “friend”. It is your own story, isn’t it? At least, it seemed to me to be your own story. If so, I wonder, if you would consider to tell your story using “I” ? Don’t feel embarrassed when you tell your own story. This is why books are read. Authors need to be shameless and find the words for what others can’t say.

and so I have re-written my book, my Story and no hiding behind the facade of my friend. I have told like it was, what I did to change and how it felt and how it feels to be free of all those horrible feelings.

Added to this I have included hypnosis tracks to download that take you through some of the exercises I describe in this book to compliment and speed up the process of letting go of grief and all the other emotions that are attached.

Track 1 Mind Mapping,

Track 2 Accessing your unique Qualities and finding your Passion

Track 3 Releasing and Moving On

My final piece is to narrate this to audio to make it easier for those who like to listen and hear which will happen sometime soon.

At the moment it’s called “IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY

It’s not meant to be instead of getting help from people like us at Cambridge Hypnotherapy and is intended to support, encourage and teach ways of finding our selves again.
