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.

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.

Have you stuck to your new years resolution?

Friday, January 31st, 2014

How Hypnotherapy can kick your new resolutions back into action!

So we are nearly at the end of January, 31 days into 2014 and I’m keen to find out how many of you that made a new years resolution are still going strong?

According to research, 9 days in is the average date that people will give up and return to their old life. In fact, three-quarters of 3,000 British adults surveyed admitted they were no longer confident they would stick to their promises for the rest of the month. Were you one of those people?

Here at Cambridge Hypnotherapy we are starting to see an increase in enquiries from clients looking to lose weight, stop smoking or cut down their alcohol consumption with Hypnotherapy. In addition to these are the clients who are looking to boost their confidence levels and let go of their anxiety. They thought they would try and ‘just get on with it’ themselves, only to find that they are still in the same place as 2013!

If this is something that you can relate to , please click here or call us on 01223 720 120 to arrange a complimentary initial consultation. Here we can explain to you in more detail about exactly what Hypnotherapy is, and how you can achieve your results in only 2-3 sessions.

Cambridge Hypnotherapy are one of the few full time Hypnotherapist centres around, and we tailor our work to you as an individual so you can be sure you’re going to get your results. We are all Master Practitioners of Hypnosis, TimeLine therapy and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming).

I look forward to hearing from you.

Lose weight with Cambridge Hypnotherapys new system

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

Guaranteed to lose weight in Cambridge with Hypnotherapy

In the coming months we are pleased to announce that we are releasing our new system that will help you to lose weight with Hypnotherapy. Cambridge Hypnotherapy have worked with no end of clients to help them lose weight easily and effectively in only 3 sessions, and also make sure that their change in mindset when it comes to food and exercise is permanent. One thing that has started to become apparent for many of our clients is that due to their daily routines, wether it be work life or family life, it is simply not possible to belong to a gym. This limits the amount of high intensity exercise that they have been able to do, simply due to a lack of being taught the correct exercises and how to do them at home.

Using Luke’s previous experience as a qualified fitness instructor, personal trainer and nutritionist he has designed a plan that you can now follow in your own home. He will show you what to eat and when to eat it as well as provide you with an exercise routine to follow in the comfort of your own home using nothing but your own bodyweight.

So how does this differ from other home exercise routines you may be wondering?  Well, you will also be provided with a range of Hypnosis CD’s to allow you to make the changes at an unconscious level so that you find it easy to stick to and maintain your weight loss permanently. You will get one CD to listen to before each and every workout that you do, as well 4 other CD’s to listen to at weekly intervals of your plan.

If you would like to find out more about how easy it can be to lose weight at home, without needing to join a gym and be signed into 12 month contracts etc, please contact us here, or call us on 01223 720 120.

We GUARANTEE you will change on this plan……

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………”

Get in touch with Luke or myself, Paul, and find out how we can help by:

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

Either call us on 01223 720 120 and talk to us in person (we’re really nice and friendly to talk to)

Cambridge Hypnotherapy tips to feel better

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

I have just been asked to give a few quick tips on ways to carry on the great work one of our clients has made so I thought this would be great to share as they can be used by anyone ~ you don’t need to have been a client.

Use your count down timer on your mobile set to one hour and repeat this throughout the day. When it beeps, stop and notice how you feel right now and then make yourself feel just a little better. Little is the main thing ~ just a little better; you’ll find that easy I know. Just remember to turn it off before bed time!!!???

Whenever you catch yourself asking things like “Why do I……, Why can’t I……..? etc. etc” STOP and ask a better question like:

What would be like to feel X or do X (you choose which is appropriate) and enjoy the process of feeling X or doing X ?”  

and then just let that happen you don’t need to think of the answer.

 

Lastly ( for now anyway)

Before you get up , think of your day ahead and imagine how you want it to be if it were to be exactly how you want it to be. Do this for a few minutes. Then ask yourself this question:

What would it be like to have this day just like this or something even better and enjoy every minute of it?

 Then get up without thinking of an answer because your unconscious mind will create it for you.

 

Repeat the mantra

(Your name) comes first ~ number one

Try them out.

These are things everyone can do and remember if you do have issues that are holding you back from enjoying this life of yours you owe it to yourself to let them go and create the change inside of you to have the life you want and dream of. You can do this with a little help from us~ LUKE & PAUL of Cambridge Hypnotherapy

~ so call us today on 01223 720 120 to arrange a 20 minute complimentary consultation to find out how can help you.

Dealing with OCD with Cambridge Hypnotherapy – on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013

This week I was asked by BBC Radio Cambridgeshire to speak on their show, discussing the topic of OCD and looking at the different methods to treat it. As we work with many clients with OCD at Cambridge Hypnotherapy, I was asked on how Hypnotherapy can help change the way that people think or behave.

OCD can be displayed in many different ways including the following:

  • cleanliness and hand washing
  • checking appliances, lights and plug sockets are switched off
  • making sure doors and windows are locked over and over
  • having to perform a particular behaviour a set number of times
  • calorie counting and body image
  • thought about hurting themselves or others
  • having to organise things or line things up to an irrational level
  • Feeling anxious about things you know you don’t need to

To us here at Cambridge Hypnotherapy, even though all of the symptoms above are slightly different, they are also exactly the same in the sense that are just a behaviour or way of processing information and thinking about things.

Using NLP and Hypnosis, we can help change they way that our minds process information, which will in turn lead to a change in our behaviour too. We can allow your mind to accept that once you have done something, that memory can be real so that the mind doesn’t need to go back and re check it and you can start to trust your own judgement the first time you do something. No baby is born with OCD behaviours, which tells us that these symptoms and ways of being are simply  learned behaviour. More so, if we have learned it, what’s stopping us from learning a new one again, if we show your unconscious mind all the reasons why it needs to?

It doesn’t take long to let go of Obsessive Compulsive behaviours, in fact we here at Cambridge Hypnotherapy only work with clients for 2-3 sessions.

If there is something that is bothering you, then why not contact us now by clicking HERE, or call us on 01223 720 120 and we can talk you through it. We always offer you a FREE initial consultation to find out more before you ever proceed.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Luke.
