What to expect from Hypnotherapy

Wednesday, 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

How to get results in 2-3 sessions with Cambridge Hypnotherapy

Friday, November 1st, 2013

Joseph and I (Paul) have just finished 2 back to back 8 day intensive trainings in both Cambridge & Bournemouth,  teaching NLP, Time Line Therapy™ and Real Hypnosis. For those that don’t know why anyone would want to learn these skills well there’s generally three reasons.

1 For Personal development

2 To thrive in business

3 To become a therapist and help others

The fact is, generally our participants get all three in abundance

It was great to see everyone pass with flying colours and get their certification as Practitioners in NLP, Time Line Therapy™ and as a Master Hypnotist.

The thing I enjoyed most was to firstly watch the delegates sit quietly on that very first morning of the training, probably thinking “what have I done?” to see them grow in confidence and ability far beyond their dreams.

Secondly to have them fully take on board that the things that clients come in with, of the things they themselves wanted to change were not the problem.

What do I mean?

Well Here at Cambridge Hypnotherapy both Luke and I know that the presenting problem is very rarely the problem. Like the metaphor of the weed it’s only a leaf and if you cut it out the weed will only continue to grow more leaves or problems in your life.

And this is where I think we excel better than most therapists because we take time to find the root cause of our client’s issues and then and only then work on that. When the ‘root’ cause disappears then all the presenting problems disappear.

That’s how we literally only require 2-3 sessions to assist our clients to get the change they want in their life and a whole lot more!. In fact you could probably count the clients that needed more than three sessions on the fingers of one hand.

What we don’t tell is what we do at our Complimentary initial consultation and between the sessions that really makes the difference or the processes that we use and have developed ~ that’s our secret of success with clients.

working as a hypnotherapist in cambridge

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013

I’ve now been a Hypnotherapist in Cambridge for over 6 years. My background has always been Sport and Psychology, going all the way back to when I was at College and studied the 2 subjects at A-Level. Luckily, with the P.E syllabus there was a section on Sports Psychology, and also within the Psychology Syllabus there was a section on Sports Psychology.

Having left College, I decided to train and become qualified as a Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer having trained in a gym from the age of 16. I became fascinated with how some people could motivate themselves to train on their own, yet others needed someone else to push them. There is also the strange way that people can be very motivated to train on January, yet come April they rarely visit  the gym at all!

The only problem I had with working a gym was job satisfaction. Yes I was helping people become fitter, but I personally was not overly enjoying going to work every day and knew something needed to change.

As it happened my brother and father were about to run a Practitioner course, training people to become a qualified practitioner of NLP, TimeLine Therapy and Hypnosis so I jumped at the chance of enrolling and taking part. Something just clicked during the course, and I realised that this was something that would allow me to help others in a much more satisfying way.

In the following days after successfully completing the course, I saw my first client at Cambridge Hypnotherapy, and have been a full time Hypnotherapist in Cambridge ever since.

Is there something that you want to change? If so, what;’s stopping you!!!

Can we Cure?

The other day a prospective client came to our complimentary initial consultation saying they had been told by their friends to see a hypnotherapist to get cured. Oh I forgot to add the cure was also to be guaranteed.

This begs the question

Who do we know who can say they can cure?” Or “Who do you know who can and does guarantee a cure?

Let’s see….

v     A physiotherapist….. No

v     A nurse……………No

v     Oh! I know a doctor…… No. We have all heard of patients being told   there’s nothing more we can do or the prognosis is ‘x’ amount of time left to live. Some cure!

v     A Surgeon…… No, they get you to sign a consent form and give percentage chances of a full recovery.

 

The thing is we believe if a client can be cured they actually cure themselves, it’s just they get help from someone like us, and the processes we have developed, here at Cambridge Hypnotherapy. You see we believe this because there are so many cases of remission of illnesses without a supposed cure so then logically, why can’t anyone do the same thing? Ordinary people doing extraordinary things.

 

Now we seem to be have been talking about really serious illnesses or dis-ease and whilst we jump at the chance to help anyone suffering in this way many of the symptoms we see with our clients are:

v     Depression

v     Anxiety

v     Low self-esteem

v     Eating disorders

v     Drinking issues

v    Weight Loss

v     Stopping or quitting smoking

v     Gambling

v     And the list goes on and on and on.

 

The thing is if someone can overcome serious illness (and they do, we all know that) then the list above should not be that difficult to resolve when the will is there, that “I’m prepared to do whatever it takes”. We are all ordinary people who can do extraordinary things!

 

Why do we believe this?

Because we (Paul, Luke and Joseph) have all have had many experiences of our clients making wonderful changes to their lives. It’s not magic but a very magical experience for us and our clients. It’s the reason we do this ‘job’ which isn’t really a job when you’re passionate, as we are, about what we do.

 

Getting or improving your Relationship ~ with Cambridge Hypnotherapy in Cambridge

Monday, April 22nd, 2013

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.

BUT WHAT IF I’M SINGLE?

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:

Yo-Yo Dieting? ~ Cambridge Hyponotherapy’s answer

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

SO what is it about the Yo-yo effect of dieting?

Why do so many people go on a diet and crash only to find they become heavier than they started and more saddened and unmotivated?

Why do some people fall off the healthy eating and exercise regime and never get to their weight and shape they dream of and long for?

There’s probably one answer to all those at the heart, with a few side issues tagged along.

When we set our new weight goal how many know that the new you will be a different person than the old in so many ways?

Very few is the answer. They seem to think when we reach the goal we can live like we did before. Some even think they can live like they did before during this transition.

Guess what? It will never happen!

The old adage of ‘do what you did before = get what you got before’ is there for a reason.

SO how can we make this change with ease?

Firstly if we understand we will be a different person then we need to let go of the underlying beliefs towards food and exercise that have underpinned the old you, when you do this the changes become exciting and natural and not ‘a regime’ or a hardship or a sacrifice.

Yes we know that this to the conscious and intellectual way of thinking makes complete sense, doing this without knowing how is almost impossible. That’s where someone like us comes in to play, because we do this part for a living ~ it’s second nature to us, it’s what we’re trained to do.

You don’t need fad diets, fad hypno bandy thingies (we’ve written about those before!) simply letting go of negative beliefs and old emotional attachments to food etc with a little tweak to our motivation strategy and away you go.

If for those who need company or assistance after that then you may consider:

  • A personal trainer to start you off gradually where you will see and feel quick improvements
  • A nutritionist to help you prepare your healthy eating life
  • Join one of the diet clubs because now you can with confidence of finishing where you want to be.
  • Get a couple of friends along and plan your own workouts
  • Find out about new and exotic foods that tantalize you taste buds and become a food connoisseur where you savor the taste not the quantity.
  • Plus any other wonderful pursuits your new you can explore….Hmmmmm.

There you go that should be enough to get you thinking in the right way.

We’re here to help and initially it only costs you 20 minutes of your time ~ no money involved at all to come a speak with us an learn how we can help you get that new you (remember the old one got you the way you are now) and keep it.

Here’s how

Spring clean your mind with Hypnotherapy in Cambridge

Monday, February 20th, 2012

What would it be like to spring clean your mind?
We all get he need to spring clean our house, desk, office or some other space that just gets so cluttered after time.
What would you say if I said that spring cleaning your mind is one of the easiest things we can do for ourselves.
Think about it for a moment…….. We defrag our computers once and a while and they   to run better. When we do clean up and throw away the stuff we’ve accumulated over time or if it’s special put in a place where we can either admire it or use it.
So………
How do you think you feel if you did the same with your mind and your memories.
let’s take that one at a time
Our mind
Being clear headed with no negative emotions running around to derail us or take us of course or lead us into procrastination. Wow!!!!
How would that feel and what things would you be able to start, do and finish??
And what about those memories…?
I am talking about those that, when we think of them or something reminds of them we get to feel either anxious, sad or angry. If we were able to change those so they didn’t bother us, became neutral how good would that be??
Well the good news is that all the above is possible in probably 2 sessions with us here at Cambridge Hypnotherapy.
How…?
Well that’s our little secret. But using our specially developed ways of using hypnosis, NLP and time line therapy(tm) we have found ways to spring clean our minds and have a better future. To enjoy life.

Cambridge Hypnotherapy ~ guaranteed to help in some way

Thursday, February 16th, 2012

I was talking to a prospective client on the telephone just the other day desperately seeking help for their child. Unfortunately I did not feel we were the right people to help, or may better put I had a feeling there must and should be someone more experienced in this particular field/problem area to deal with a client of such a young age.

The problem this lady had was she felt totally unsupported and left with no particular course of action. Obviously if she was unable to find someone we would offer to help ~ I just thought there must be a more experienced person used to dealing with this.

If I wasn’t the right person I could certainly be a person to offer support and help which is what I did ~ in two ways.

The first was to ask a simple question which I thought would have been asked by the ‘Experts’! Which was

Well what happened just before the problem started?”

 A simple question and generally there always seems to a trigger in our lives that creates our issues. To my disbelief it hadn’t been asked yet the answer gave all the information you would need to help heal the situation/issue and gave hope that having identified the why/how the problem started there was a way in resolving it for her child. Maybe you can forgive GPs not asking this question in the 10 minutes they have to deal with their patients but this was a serious thing to be happening to one so young it seemed to me the natural question to start with.

The second thing I did was to find information of someone more qualified to help, call them and relayed details to both parties. If all else fails we will see the child and do the best we can because that’s what caring people do.

Now the thing is, finding the trigger is one thing, it’s really a protection mechanism of the body and our unconscious mind. Getting that trigger to trigger off a better behaviour is the real key to success. If we spend just a little time, using our specially developed questioning we seem to find the cause as well. That’s why we rarely see our clients more than 2-3 sessions.

From there on it’s relatively easy to create the change both comfortably and easily that stays changed. Our metaphor is of a weed the more you pull the leaves the more leaves it seems to grow (the problem spreads to other areas of our lives) BUT when you pull out the root the weed and all its leaves disappear for good.

So I guess to sum up if you have a problem makes you feel bad or react in way you don’t like get in touch and ask if we can help. A consultation costs you nothing – It’s complimentary and it could just change your life for the better there and then. I know we can help if not personally we can help you find a way. Because that’s what we do
