Hypnotherapy v Counseling….. which to choose??

Thursday, April 25th, 2013

Recently I have had a client enquire into the differences between Hypnotherapy and Counseling. In their words they felt they “needed some feminine empathy right now from a female counselor” and it got me thinking about the differences between that and they way that we work.

As I am a 32 year old man, I have to hold my hands up and admit that when it comes to being a female counselor, the other therapist has got me beaten hands down there! Also being male, I think she’s pretty much got me beaten on the feminine empathy aspect too!

So what can I offer them that is different then? Well quite simply, a no nonsense, quick and long lasting change without all the fuss and talking that counseling can bring with it. Counseling can be very good at gaining an understanding as to why we do things by looking at our pasts and analyzing it. The downside of this can be that understanding something doesn’t mean you know who to change it as it’s the past, it’s already happened! Another huge downside is that trawling over painful memories can simply bring all the buried emotions and thoughts back up to the surface.

Here at Cambridge Hypnotherapy, we will allow your unconscious mind to learn every possible learning from your past at a level where you will experience none of the horrible emotions that you went through then, you’ll simply notice you feel a sense of ‘nothingness’ about it now.

So wether you’re looking to stop smoking with hypnotherapy, lose weight with hypnotherapy, increase your confidence with hypnotherapy or even let go of your phobia with hypnotherapy, we await your call 🙂

Getting or improving your Relationship ~ with Cambridge Hypnotherapy in Cambridge

Help to make your relationship special

Putting up with a relationship that is not working is something that so many people put up with.

Why would you do that?

Well the reasons are many

Fear of telling that other person

Fear of being alone

I wouldn’t look right in other people’s eyes

For the sake of the children

And on and on and on and on…………………


The thing is we don’t have to put up with something that does not make us happy and that does not mean the relationship has to end either.

Simply to talking to the other party may get a better picture of how they feel. But… the most important thing is to find out what you want in and from this relationship and equally what do they want. You may be very surprised when you get to understand and see things from another perspective ~ THEIRS! And they to YOURS!

Some lucky people get to be able to do this themselves but not many as we get in the way with our stuff.

So where to? How?

Well that’s where we (Cambridge Hypnotherapy & our sister site  Improving your relationships) come into play. Whether singly or as couple we can assist you to understand the things that are important to you, your values) and the reasons you fail to achieve the things you want.

To discover the beliefs you may have that no longer support you and what you want.

To learn how to communicate with yourself and that special person in your life

Plus many other ways we have learnt and developed to help you and your partner to create the relationship of your dreams.


Now the above has only really been directed at couples but you can apply similar ways to help you to find the relationship of your dreams. To let go of any anxiety around approaching people, to be able to communicate and gain the rapport with people you find yourself attracted to. You too will have formed beliefs that keep you from being hurt (again) and whilst they have that positive intention they don’t feel good and in order to find the right person for you you have to trust and know it’s not hurt from what you think is being rejected it’s actually a piece of brilliance that allows you not to waste time on someone not right for you and spend it wisely finding the right person that would make you and them happy.

 So what should / can you do right now?

Make up your mind(s) to do something because anything is possible with the will, you don’t have to know how ~ That’s our job!

Then do one of two things

Anxious or worried about hypnosis? don’t be with Cambridge Hypnotherapy

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

Recently, we had a client come to us and they were so frightened of being, going into trance or hypnosis it even affected listening to a simple 10 minute hypnosis CD. It also affected their thoughts of how the therapy sessions would go and making all kinds of pictures in their head of being uncomfortable and not getting the changes they really want. This is not usual but not exceptional, we all have our own perception of hypnosis from films or stage shows etc and the thing is when done well in a therapeutic situation nothing can be further from the truth. Unfortunately it has to experienced to break this misconception. (By the way we do this really well and really quickly!)

Here’s the thing ~

I have been in trance all my life, that’s right all my life! And the thing is so have you! Every moment of the day we are is some form of trance and in some ways it’s our job to undo the trances you have been living which no longer serve you.

Technically we could call it getting back in rapport with a true self or being totally aligned and congruent.

It’s only when we notice how far out of alignment or out of rapport with ourselves do we notice it. How? Because it doesn’t feel good, it may feel that we’re not being ourselves (you may hear people actually saying things like that)

Sometimes it’s because it doesn’t feel good we can be scared of hypnosis or hypnotherapy because we think of hypnosis as being zonked out, out of control or something else which is so far from the truth. It’s because we live in trance(s) every moment we forget we can control the trance we live in. That’s where can come in and help you enjoy changing the way you feel to how you want to feel in a given context or how to change a belief that you may had for most of your life that really no longer supports you.  You heard it right ENJOY CHANGING.

You see we know if you’re in a good state you can change your world instantly and with seemingly little effort ~ it’s not magic but it can be magical. This is not the case with all therapies but it is the way we have developed our way, our philosophy or our particular niche and it just seems to work.

All change and behaviour is unconscious so the only real way of changing the way you feel or behave/act/your habits is using your unconscious mind. Hey that’s using hypnosis or NLP or time line therapy™! ~~~~ Hey that’s what we do.

If you want to find out how we do what we do and help  clients get what they want in around 2-3 sessions here’s what to do:
