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.

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………”

What can hypnotherapy & Hypnosis do? Cambridge Hypnotherapy

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

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.

 

tips to stop smoking from Cambridge Hypnotherapy

Saturday, January 5th, 2013

Tips to help you stop smoking.

Whilst we know hypnosis and hypnotherapy claim a great success rate helping smokers to be non-smokers.

And

We, here at Cambridge Hypnotherapy, believe we have developed even better ways and processes using our experience of hypnosis and NLP (Neuro-linguistic programming) we also understand this is not for everyone. Although it is far easier with us than going cold turkey we thought we would give a few pointers for those wanting to do it by themselves.

First of all the main reason we lose our will power or resolve is because when we stop smoking without planning properly most smokers begin to try to behave just the same as before not utilising a different behaviour in it’s place.

Some start drinking more alcohol, others eat more or keep picking at food between meals and some just get lethargic and watch TV more.

The result of all this is more weight and sluggishness ending going back to the dreaded weed!

Why does this happen? It’s because we have acknowledged what smoking was doing for us, such as taking us away from stress or boredom.  If we don’t re[place smoking with a new set of behaviours that also deal with what smoking was doing for us them we are doomed to failure.

So if you want to try and stop by yourself here’s a few tips:

·                  Pick a date suitably in the future when you will stop.

·                  Think about when you smoke what is smoking doing for you and write them down

·                  Think about necan rightly w ways you can achieve the same thing for you and write  them down

·                  Make notes on what you can do that’s really different and that you can’t smoke at the same time and prepare to them.

·                  On the evening before the set day really concentrate on smoking and realise it’s just a silly behaviour and that you know far better ways. After your last smoke ceremoniously crush and throw away the packet.

·                  When you wake up have a nice shower and put on some nice, clean comfortable clothes.

·                  Give yourself credit and praise every hour for doing so well.

So you can go this way if you like, some do and get great results but a lot fail with all good intentions because the thing is it’s our unconscious mind that runs the smoking behaviour and changing consciously is very hard.

That’s why we think coming to us for one session specially designed to help you stop smoking and get you unconscious mind to change using hypnosis can be the most rewarding thing you ever do for yourself. Changing your behaviours unconsciously and enjoy the change in you and what you will experience for the rest of your life.

Remember the reason we are so successful is that we always insist that you come for a complimentary consultation to make sure you are right for us and we for you, to get all your questions answered and when you are ready to commit we give you something to do along with our special hypnosis CD that gets you ready for the real session. Following the one session we will also give you our special Continue to take the trance CD along with Joseph’s Stop smoking now CD. It just makes sense.

Hypnosis & Hypnotherapy in Cambridge ~ can I be hypnotised?

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

We here at Cambridge Hypnotherapy always work with the intention our clients take full responsibility over their issues and also be responsible for their change and success. We (Luke, Joseph & myself) are purely the facilitators of that change ~ we have just developed processes and ways to use Hypnosis and NLP etc that enable our clients to change quickly and easily.

We take responsibility for being able to facilitate the change and on the extremely rare occasions our clients are unable to make the change they desire it is us not being able to help them not that they are “unhypnotizable” (if that’s actually a word) or able to make the change.

It’s when we hear of clients being told by other therapists that it’s they who are a bad client, cannot be hypnotized we shudder in disbelief.

Here’s an exert of a recent email we received:

“I did see a hypnotherapist a few years back to help me with my depression, she tried to take me back to a place in my childhood where she believed everything changed, after three sessions she told me that I was not able to be hypnotised and it was probably because whatever it was was too hard for even my subconscious to bring up, Im not convinced anything really bad happened to me as a child”

Needless to say we do not work in any, shape or form work like that or speak to our clients in such a way

here is part of our reply:

“As for your previous work, we work in a COMPLETELY different approach and
don’t believe everything goes back to childhood. It sounds very much like an
approach which personally we don’t agree with.

We, unlike many, Specialise in Brief Therapy and Lasting Change. With our
passion using NLP, Time Line Therapy, together with Hypnosis we assist in
helping people who really want to change in a comfortable way.

It is difficult to guess the number of sessions you may need, we believe
this should always remain your choice and the fewer the better is our belief
(normally 2-3 sessions).Many clients have achieved their goals even quicker!
We can explain all at an initial consultation.”

We believe (and also teach in our Trainings) that every client is unique and has all the resources they need to make the change they desire.

We also believe we are probably the best at facilitating quick, easy, comfortable and lasting change.

when Grief causes anxiety ~ Hypnotherapy in Cambridge

Saturday, January 14th, 2012

I know Luke will soon writing of two amazing successes he received feed back from last week. Both to do with Fears and Phobias but with totally different and startling results.

I’d like to tell of a client I saw last week too, which at the consultation the main issue was anxiety around driving (which is so so easy to change by the way).

This changed however when we began the session ~ was anxiety around driving the cause of this clients issue, they thought it was when they came but we soon discovered this was simply an effect of the real issue which when it came to light was that they were still suffering from  grief together with an un-supporting belief to boot.

Did I panic because I had only prepared for a driving session ~ absolutely not because I hadn’t prepared in that way. We here at Cambridge Hypnotherapy never assume any issue is the real issue until we are sure because as a general rule it isn’t. That’s why so many others (therapists) fail to help their clients quickly and comfortably which I think is a disservice to our clients. All of us here (Luke, Joseph and myself) are committed to brief therapy (the fewest amount of sessions) and complete and lasting change.

Anyway back to my client. Once we, well the client really discovered the real cause of their anxiety (they understood and new now that this was the real problem that needed being dealt with) we did deal with it quickly and with no tears. Well no tears until we had finished but they were tears of joy because they now had a set of wonderful memories and a loving connection with that person they had been grieving for, grieving for far to long and now they felt like a whole weight had been lifted from their shoulders. That really does make this job a brilliant one.

One session that’s all it took to get that kind of freedom.

Your problems could disappear that quickly too why not call 01223 720 120 or email us by clicking here

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.

 If you are a therapist and want to find out more or when our next weekend Masterclass is being held email info@josephcloughtrainings

Anxious about Hypnotherapy in Cambridge

Monday, February 28th, 2011
A little while ago I received a reply to an initial consultation reminder text we send out that made me think.

The text read something like this:

Thanks. Ironic that I am seeking your help as I am anxious about everything” and here’s the bit that got me “Including coming to see you!”It’s only because we know the initial consultation is our way to put you at your ease and we have been in so many we’re never anxious!

Being serious though I can really empathise with that comment, sometimes we can be so worried of the unknown we will stay stuck. Some people call it staying in their comfort zone and if you have ever thought that way and I think we all have maybe it should be renamed “the Familiar Zone”. You can be so familiar with your problems, issues and the negative way you feel it can be scary to think of being any other way.

Luke, Joseph and I know this here at Cambridge Hypnotherapy which is why we insist on our prospective clients come to an initial consultation. It’s a time where we can let you know all about our special kind of Hypnotherapy and make you feel really comfortable.

How do we do that?

Well firstly:

You can see we are real people and can tell we are both passionate about your results and you can see that what we are telling you is what we believe in. We don’t sell magically on the telephone or on the web ~ you get to see “the whites of our eyes!” and you get to do this with our compliments, it’s absolutely free.

Secondly:

You get to make a considered decision by getting all your concerns answered and if we’re not for you that’s great and if we are that’s great to.

Thirdly:

You have that worry of being regressed back to times in your life when things were bad ~ because we don’t do that here.

Fourthly:

For those that worry with phobias etc that you will be made to face the thing your fear so much ~ we don’t do that either!

There’s a lot more I could add but then I want you to find out for yourself and start making the changes to your life ~ with a little special help from us.

Paul
