Hypnotherapy Masterclass with Joseph and Paul Clough ~ Cambridge Hypnotherapy

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

 This weekend Joseph and I are sharing our developments in hypnosis and hypnotherapy in Cambridge to other hypnotherapists, NLP & Time Line Therapy practitioners.

 I believe we have taken previous processes, stripped them down to what really works and then made them even better with our own ‘stuff’. ‘Stuff’ being the very technical word for the things we (Joseph, Luke and I, Paul) have developed that create both remarkable change in our clients and really fast change. In effect how we at Cambridge Hypnotherapy manage to see our clients generally no more than three sessions where many others take 8 – 12 sessions.

 In fact we took this to Israel where the therapists we taught we taking that long and couldn’t believe change, real change could be so fast, comfortable and lasting ~ and now they do!

 So you can see we are and will be continually be striving to create even better ways to utilise in our brand of therapy here at Cambridge Hypnotherapy.

Cambridge Hypnotherapy on Christmas and relation(ships)

Sunday, November 27th, 2011

It’s an interesting but sad fact that divorce lawyers/solicitors do more business over the Christmas period than any other time of the year.

The time of year when we hear ‘Good will to all (wo)men’, the giving time and that time when we think of new resolutions.

Yet it seems for many we just can’t communicate our love for each other in a way that’s understood or received in a way we want it to be.

So what in essence should be a wonderful time of our year where we get more of that valuable thing called time to spend with our loved ones can end up in such an emotional minefield.

The thing is it doesn’t have to be this way at all if you don’t want it to be. YOU can make it a time that increases and intensifies your relationships.

Here at Cambridge Hypnotherapy we have worked with many clients to reinforce the core of their relationship with their partner or family easily and comfortably.

It doesn’t take long and it doesn’t always need you both to attend. You know as well as we do when one half of a relationship steps up and makes things better the other will automatically follow. That’s just a simple fact of life!

Here’s a thought:

Think about the first time you kissed your partner, the very first time. Remember what you felt back then, go on really feel it again and notice you can intensify or magnify that feeling.

And, as you dothat, think of another wonderful time when you really felt that love and again really feel that feeling.

And then……..

look at you partner holding on to that feeling and ask yourself

What can I do now to express this feeling?” and then just do it!

That’s only the tip of the iceberg of what we can do. Imagine having someone to guide you through empowering processes that will increase your love, your life and your future.

Treat yourself for Christmas by changing your life NOW!

Friday, November 25th, 2011

When you ask most people what they would like for Christmas, they will give you a material answer such as clothing, maybe a CD or DVD or even something for the home. Not many would take a second to think about what would actually personally benefit them forever.

For example, an item of clothing may make someone feel better whilst wearing it and whilst its new, but no doubt won’t help too much when they are in a meeting at work and start to feel their usual anxiety attacks kicking.

Or maybe listening to that CD will help them relax for the 30 minutes they spend listening to it, but what happens when they find that they have opened the second bottle of wine, and just can’t seem to stop? No doubt they start to become stressed out again pretty quickly!

When we take a second to look a little bit deeper, we all have something that we would like to change… maybe it’s letting of a phobia, maybe its losing weight, maybe it’s even letting go of jealousies and insecurities.

The added bonus of looking to change with us here at Cambridge Hypnotherapy is that your changes will last forever and will not wear away like that new jumper, or won’t become old like that current CD.

We, at Cambridge Hypnotherapy, have great experience helping others lose weight, increase confidence, let go of anxiety, stop smoking and even let go of depression in only 2-3 sessions….. Why don’t you become one of many success stories too!

Hypnotherapy in Cambridge ~ What to expect at an initial consultation

 What to expect at an initial consultation with Cambridge Hypnotherapy

 We think the bravest thing you do in solving your issues and making the changes you want is to arrange or book an initial consultation.

 So when you come along here’s what to expect:

Well firstly DON’T expect to be hypnotised because you won’t. We don’t do any work at all on your issues ~ so you can relax now.

 

But you can expect to made comfortable because that’s the most important thing about this consultation ~ It’s your 20 minutes to make a considered decision if you are comfortable with us and that we’re right for you together with having all your questions answered:

 

Questions like

 

  • How many sessions?
  • How long do sessions last?
  • How much?
  • What’s it like to be hypnotised?
  • What’s NLP, Time Line Therapy?
  • Some people ask if it’s okay to drive after a session.
  • Is it totally confidential?

 

We will answer all of the above and more so rest assured you will have all the information to make a choice.

 

AND

 

if we don’t think we’re right for you we will tell you and advise you how to get the right way. It’s really important to us to make sure you get what you want.

 

AND

 

Whether you proceed or not we will give you our ‘What will it mean to me’ CD with our compliments

 

AND

 

If you didn’t receive a link to our 30 minutes of hypnosis downloads we will send you that as well, again with our compliments.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our Hypnotherapy in Cambridge ~ So why do we do this stuff?

Saturday, November 12th, 2011

 Hypnosis, hypnotism ~ So why do we do this stuff?

This thing , which some people say doesn’t exist and others hold in mystery (if only they knew !).

 

Here’s the answer on the form of another question(s).

Why would two young men, 18 and 24 year old respectively, decide to enter into the world of helping people and in affect totally risk their livelihoods? Changing steady careers to one of uncertainty.

 

Why would someone highly experienced and respected in business say no to that life and change direction completely towards caring for people?

 

Why?

 

Because the answer to all the above must be PASSION. Having a passion for what we do and getting the best buzz life can give you when you see someone change, let go of old ‘stuff’ like depression which has held them back for years or overcoming low self esteem such as “I’m not good enough, deserving enough etc. etc. There are few things in life that gives you that feeling and we get to experience with our clients.

 

And the best thing is the passion is growing.

 

Sorry the answer is so short ~ but it is sweet.

Releasing anger ~ Cambridge Hypnotherapy

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

This article was written a little while ago for the Time Line Therapy Association about one of my clients and their most brilliant change in their life and showed how wonderful the effects of Time Line Therapy ™ are.

And because it was such a big experience we thought we should put in on our blog as well

Before we worked on this issue I was put to the test to see how good a hypnotist I was. To stop this client smoking in one session. I wouldn’t normally do therapy this way around ~ I would usually deal with issues and then the smoking but this client wasn’t having any of it.

This clients opening sentence to me was:

My Anger is Killing me.”

From the very first moment of learning Time Line Therapy(tm) I knew it worked. It just did. It worked with letting go of my negative emotions on the trainings and wth those I did the exercises with.

But then something happens to test this belief and it did with me, BIG time!
My client came into his session and during the personal history the full extent of his problem was presented to me with the words “If I don’t get help I will die ~ That’s what my doctor has told me so I’ve come to you” Wow.

His Doctor knew there was nothing physically wrong but the effects were physical. Our client was losing weight by the day  and dangerously so. This was also causing deterioration in his organs, blood pressure was above high and blood tests showed other malfunctions. On a personal level this man used to have his daughter and son living with him but that had now all changed. His son had left home and no longer wanted more than brief contact and his daughter, now married and recently a mother did not want any contact with her father or her child with her Grandfather.
What was at the root of this diagnosis – Anger but anger in the extreme.
How was this a problem was a question I didn’t need to ask.
How long have you had this problem ~ 11 years.

I asked “How do you do this problem? ” ~ I think about it every minute of my waking day and sometimes in my dreams when I eventually do get to sleep. I argue with this person in my head. I shout and scream in my head. It gets so loud I have to put on earphones and a CD player at full volume to drown out the noise, it’s constant.

I wanted to know as little content as possible but this client wanted me to know a little so I could understand him better.

This is what he told me:
“Briefly I am so angry with my wife and have been for 11 years, I’ve told you how it has affected my relationships with my son and daughter and that only fans the flames of this anger. I’ve told you how it has and is affecting my health to the point where I am killing myself. That makes me SO angry as well and I can’t stop it – The problem is my wife died 12 years ago and a year after her death I found out something about what she did behind my back with someone else so I’ll never be able to find out………………..”
As always, as I was taught and how I teach in my trainings, I simply follow the scripts which are deep inside me now I can say them unconsciously from memory.
We established where his time line was and a simple test flight which being so far away from what he had been talking about was done with ease.

I love to show the diagrams of the process which really pre-teaches the unconscious mind what to do and what will happen and when the emotion will disappear along with a little re-framing of how anger and negative emotions do not protect and are against the prime directive of the unconscious mind. All was going well.
What really began to blow him away was that finding the root cause was not 11 years ago but at such an early age.
Now for Time Line Therapy(tm) and ten minutes of time.

IT’S GONE! What? how? where? …………….”

After testing, still gone but the real test was to be outside, in the real world.
I had tried to make contact but could never get through just voice mail so I didn’t know what to think.
Then whilst I was out one day  a second appointment was made for me with this client. Why a second appointment? So maybe I hadn’t got the result we wanted, my belief was really being tested. All I could do is wait.

So there I am waiting for my client and in he comes.
“why are you here?” I ask
Well I just wanted to tell you what happened since we last met and felt it only right to make an appointment. Here is how I am now:
The anger I felt is gone I still can’t get it.
My doctor tells me my tests are now showing a dramatic improvement and is left wondering what happened and my weight is returning to what it should be.
Oh I’ve stopped smoking – don’t need them any more.
But more importantly to me my son has returned home to live with me.
Oh I nearly forgot I’m away this weekend to stay with my daughter and her new family and I am now part of the christening plans for my Granddaughter
Thank you

Isn’t great to be part of that, the buz you get and reaffirming why we do what we do.
Does Time line work? I wouldn’t and couldn’t use it or teach it if it didn’t.

Am I congruent when I talk about time line ~ You guess!

Cambridge Hypnotherapy spreading it’s wings?

Exciting times here at Cambridge Hypnotherapy.

I (Paul) am now involved in helping create a brand new hypnotherapy clinic and Therapy Centre “The Waterside” all the way down in Bournemouth. Taking all the ways we have learned and specially developed in helping people change or let go of issues really quickly and comfortably to a place 200 meters from the cliff side.

Luke continues here in Cambridge and it’s great to see the changes he is being involved with in our clients. When I’m here every day that sometimes is missed by me and taken for granted in our busy day.

I’ll be working both here and there so our contact details will always remain the same and if on the days I’m not here Luke will make arrangement for me. (how lucky am I?!) 01223 720 120
