Getting positive results with (Cambridge) Hypnotherapy

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”

Changing the way you feel with Cambridge Hypnotherapy

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.

Hypnotherapy and Sports Psychology

Sunday, June 29th, 2014

Over the past couple of years we at Cambridge Hypnotherapy developed a sister site called Cambridge Sports Psychology. We were getting lots of enquiries from sportsmen and women who knew that they were not achieving their potential and that their results were not being equalled by their talent and ability.

We have worked with pretty much any sport that you could think of including rugby, football, boxing, mma, showjumping, golf, shooting, snooker, archery, motocross and many many more. We have used our set of skills with clients ranging from hobbyists all the way through to professional and international sportspeople.

When it comes to performing, you can have all the talent in the world…. if you don’t have the correct mindset then the chances are high that you will never achieve the success that you are deserving of. There are countless examples of professional sportspeople who are some of, if not the very best in their field. However there are times in their careers that they simply cannot bring all of their skills and talents into play, including the following examples:

  • Tiger woods – Arguably the greatest ever golfer yet when he was going through his personal troubles his performances were nowhere no matching his ability
  • Fernando Torres – Signed for £50million after being world class at Madrid and Liverpool, yet a drop in form and confidence, as well as the burden of the price tag has led to      unbelievably below par performances.
  • Gareth Bale – Presently the worlds most expensive player but he started his Tottenham career with the jinxed reputation of being on the losing side in the first 24 games he played in leaving his performances lacking in confidence.
  • England cricket team – being one of the best in the world yet being whitewashed in Australia as the fear/anxiety became too much for them.

Now that Wimbledon has begun we have already seen an increase in tennis related enquiries as the sport is bought back into the public eye for another year.

No matter what sport you play, or the level that you play at, we at Cambridge Sports Psychology can help improve your performance, let go of any performance related anxiety, and most importantly of all get you to ENJOY your sport again.

Stop Smoking in only ONE session

Hypnotherapy in Cambridge to stop smoking

At Cambridge Hypnotherapy we have devised a fantastic session plan over the past few years that helps our clients quit smoking in only ONE session! We have literally worked it on hundreds of clients and this has helped us to offer it with a free back up session as we are that confident ! Using NLP and Hypnosis, we can start to reprogram what smoking and cigarettes mean to you.

You will no longer see them as a way to relieve that stressful day at work, or as a way to escape that boredom when you’re sat at home with not much to do. You won’t even be using the reason that it helps you socialise with your friends as an excuse as to why you smoke anymore. After our session, your unconscious mind will see that in fact cigarettes are stressing you out physically and even emotionally, that sitting around smoking is actually boring you and stopping you from doing something that you would enjoy doing, and that you can still even be in the same environments as before with friends etc without the need to smoke.

It only takes one session to make these changes, and we are so confident in our approach that we offer all of our clients a free back up session within the first 3 months. In the last 7 years, I have only seen a handful of clients (maybe 5 or 6) for a free back up session, it’s that effective!

To find out how you can be free from cigarettes and stop smoking with Hypnotherapy, contact us now on 01223 720120, or you can email us here and we will get back to you as soon as possible. We offer all of our clients a complimentary initial consultation where you can be sure you can proceed comfortably and stop smoking with Cambridge Hypnotherapy.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Luke.

Helping relationships over Christmas with Cambridge Hypnotherapy

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013

Following on from Luke’s latest Cambridge Hypnotherapy Blog posting about anxiety experienced at Christmas I think it would be good to have a look at why this anxiety comes about in families at this time of year.

Now it could just the drink talking and unfortunately this can be a big issue for some. Alcohol flows so much freer at this festive time ~ freer and usually earlier and for longer. It’s a recipe for trouble and usually brings the worst out of everybody. This calls for reconciliation and maybe dealing with possible drink related problems and addictions. To us that’s not a big problem to resolve it’s just a problem that gets bigger and uglier if you don’t resolve it

But even more than the drink, usually problems occur because we’re just not use to spending so much time with each other. Now spending time with loved ones should be something to treasure. But if this extended time together brings up problems in our relationship that are usually buried by you being at work, shopping, cleaning and all the usual stuff then it’s a signal to you something needs addressing.

Imagine having dealt with these relationship problems how wonderful would life be? How special would time be, spent with your love one, family and friends?

Why don’t we do something about it?

Here’s one reason:

You don’t realise you can do anything about it or you don’t realise with just a little effort and help from us you can make your life and the lives of others in your life awesome! You just have to want it!

Why would you commit your life to someone and not have your life improve because of that commitment? With just a little effort every relationship can grow better and better. This is specifically why we have a web site totally dedicated to improving every type of relationship called quite simply Improvingyourrelationships.co.uk.

Have a look if you’re interested in enjoying every part of your relationships, be they with family, friends and that special person in your life right now.

Either way you may only have one life to live or many live depending on your beliefs ~ either way you owe it to yourself to enjoy them all to the full and not have regrets such as “if only………”

Hypnotherapy for stress in Cambridge – Cambridge Hypnotherapy

Christmas time is meant to be a time to relax, to withdraw from the stresses of work and spend fun time with the family. Well in theory that’s what’s meant to happen anyway! In reality, we become stressed and overloaded with the thought of food shopping for the big day, buying everyone presents and worrying about whether they’ll be well accepted. In fact, many people just wish boxing day would come so that they could finally put their feet up and relax!

Every year we receive many enquiries from potential clients looking into whether using Hypnotherapy in Cambridge to let go of stress and anxiety is something that they should consider…. to which our answer is YES!

NLP and Hypnosis are fantastic tools to help you pay attention to the things that you want to do, not the things that you don’t want to do! Instead of hoping that nothing goes wrong, you’ll soon start to be focusing on everything that goes right and can enjoy those wonderful moments more than ever before. You will start to near enough immediately find yourself feeling much more relaxed, not rushing around trying to please everyone. Imagine kicking back and noticing just how calm you can be, and how this leads you to having so much more fun!

If Christmas is a time of year where you would like to feel different, contact us now at Cambridge Hypnotherapy for anxiety and stress. You can email us here, or you can call us on 01223 720 120 to arrange a complimentary initial consultation where you can find out just how quickly you can achieve your results! Most of our clients achieve their results in only 2-3 sessions!!!

I look forward to hearing from you,

Luke.

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.

If you want to know more then all you have to do is

SAD…… Letting go of Seasonal Affective Disorder with Hypnotherapy in Cambridge

Monday, October 21st, 2013

SAD – Seasonal Affective Disorder…. what exactly is it? According to the NHS it is “a type of depression that has a seasonal pattern. The episodes of depression tend to occur at the same time each year, usually during the winter”. We at Cambridge Hypnotherapy feel slightly different.

If you were to ask anyone you know how they feel in Summer compared to Winter however, I’m sure that you will get a common theme with your results. Most of us are much happier when the sun is shining and we can get out and about, and likewise we are commonly down when it is dark and dreary. Some people obviously suffer with these changes more than others and can often de diagnosed as having SAD.

I personally think that it can dangerous to label people with things such as SAD, or general depression for a few reasons. Firstly, if they have an issue such as depression or SAD, they lose track of any responsibility for their emotions and believe that they will last forever and start to simply try to manage them instead of letting go of them. Secondly, when we give someone a label they will start to live their life in a way that fits with this new identity. They will believe that they can’t go certain places, or do certain things in accordance with their new identity. To start with when it comes those with SAD, as soon as winter is approaching and summer is ending, they are instantly dreading the impending arrival of their depression and preparing themselves for when it arrives. One question though….. What if it didn’t arrive? That simple questions takes them out of their problem state and immediately makes them look at things from a different angle. How will their winter be knowing they can still go anywhere, cosy up in front a fire, play snowball fights with their children? seems kind of fun now, right?

Letting go of Depression with Cambridge Hypnotherapy can be very quick and easy. We are unlike Counselling and other forms of Hypnotherapy which seem to go on for 10 sessions plus, sometimes years! We work with our clients for rarely more than 3 sessions, and in fact in September 2013 100% of our clients achieved their results in 3 sessions or less.

If you would like to feel back in control and enjoy your life this winter, or let go of depression in other areas of your lives, please feel free to contact us here now, or call us on 01223 720 120 to arrange a free initial consultation. We will even send you 2 free downloads.

Do it NOW!
