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.

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

Child abuse and how it affects victims in the long term – Cambridge Hypnotherapy

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

Over the past 12 months there have countless cases of child abuse reported by the media focusing on high profile names and famous personalities. These cases go back years and years, which has made us think about how long the victims have been holding on to their traumatic memories for and how their lives would have different if they had dealt with them at the time.

At Cambridge Hypnotherapy, we regularly work with clients who have been abused physically, sexually or emotionally, and in the majority of cases all 3! Typically they talk about how they occasionally wake up because of a nightmare, or if they hear about a similar situation in the news or watch something similar on a TV program then all of their old memories come flooding back into their mind. The vast majority of these clients also have something else in common, which is that they feel like there is something wrong with them and that they have a huge lack in self worth, because why were they treated like this… what was wrong with them?

Years and years of feeling like this has a huge effect on peoples lives and can often be diagnosed by the medical world as Depression. They may have started to develop an unhealthy relationship with alcohol as a way to escape these thoughts. As a youngster they may have found it hard to meet people as trusting people had become very hard to do, and as they grow up they find it safer and easier to spend time on their own rather than meet others, which has a knock on effect to relationships not only with friends, but romantically too. More often than not they also have not followed their chosen career path, rather chosen a safe, easy career where they can’t suffer any more trauma or upset.

The majority of clients that we work with reporting this type of situation are typically aged 40 years and above, therefore they have suffered with these emotions and problems for over 25 years of their lives, and thinking like this also makes them feel guilty and regretful for not dealing with it sooner! They dream about how their lives could really have been.

We can help them disconnect form those memories. Using advanced levels of NLP, Hypnosis and Time Line Therapy, we allow their unconscious mind to simply go back into their past, and learn from it. The learn every single learning from every possible unconscious memory that once learned and preserved, will allow them to no longer experience any emotion at the thought of it. The memory will still be there, but there will a nothingness kind of feeling about it.

If you have suffered any kind of trauma in your past that is still bothering you to this day, please feel free to contact us here for a FREE initial consultation to find out just how easy it can be to change you life in only 2-3 sessions, or you can call us on 01223 720 120.

I look forward to hearing form you.

Dealing with Jealousy with Cambridge Hypnotherapy

Friday, November 30th, 2012

Jealousy.

We all seem to suffer a little with jealousy I guess. Most of the time it’s just a passing thought that disappears as quickly as it comes.

We see the effects of jealousy and the green eyed monster in all the tabloids, in the tell tell tales of who did what with whom.

More importantly is the effect of our own jealous part in side us. Or should I say effects because not only do we have those thoughts and internal voices that go round and around inside our heads we also behave in such a way that actually pushes away the one person we want to be with. These behaviors and the way we attempt to communicate with that person actually does what we want least of all ~ to drive them away only to create more inner pictures we make up and feel so bad.

Is Jealousy something that can be eliminated from our relationships? ….. of course but you do need to know how to, shall we say, re-programme your mind and all it’s filters and more importantly understand why we act the way we did. It’s important to understand we do what we do for the very best of intentions (unconsciously) and we need to always honour the intention and change the behaviour to one of trust and love.

We have developed highly successful processes over the years to assist our clients to be free of jealousy and have the relationship they truly want and are able to enjoy.

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.

Spring clean your mind with Hypnotherapy in Cambridge

We all get he need to spring clean our house, desk, office or some other space that just gets so cluttered after time.

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

Cambridge Hypnotherapy ~ Advice How to get real results

Friday, December 16th, 2011

This is sort of a clients experience and it’s an experience that we here at Cambridge Hypnotherapy look out for and listen for.

It’s a time when we help our clients not to be clients until they are ready.

You see Hypnotherapy, especially the way we have developed it is extremely powerful at getting the results you want. And that’s the thing we listen for is it what you want and need. For many it’s just the right thing to change from what you’re feeling to how you want to feel in as little as 2-3 sessions with us.

But

And here is the but:

What if you don’t want to stop smoking but your partner wants you to stop?

What if you bite your nails and your family, not you, want you to stop it?

For some therapists you would be booked into a session with what measure of success? Well probably none and we’ll explain that later.

With us you come along to an initial consultation and we explain how we work and use this time to find out if it’s you who want to change. Because it’s so important to your success in changing if you want to stop and change ~ really important!

If we notice that you are here under someone else’s wishes we will not work with you, you don’t have a problem and you will waste your time and money and we will not let that happen. We will give you a complimentary hypnosis CD and when and if you change your mind and you want to change you then we will book you in to a session ~ only then though.

So you can rest assured when you do visit us we have only your best interests at heart and when you understand that you know you are in the right place at the right time with the right person that can help.

And when you do get the results you want we get to share in your pleasure of being the one who did it (with a little help from us)

Hypnotherapy without Hypnosis in Cambridge?

Saturday, December 3rd, 2011

So how deep do you have to go into hypnosis to get the benefit?

Some people, including some hypnotists still think you have to go really deep. Yet when you think about it, if you have an issue you have surely changed from what you did to what you do now. That’s just logical, isn’t it? And when you changed back then were you put in a deep trance? ~ I think not.

Which all goes on to suggest you may not need a trance to change ~ Hey that’s NLP and Time line therapy(tm) isn’t it? Well you may not know what they are but believe me they’re processes that do not require trance.

SO………….

Why use hypnosis?

Good question!

Well sometimes we have thought about our problem for ages, talked about it to everyone or just ourselves for a long time and we need to get away from all these conscious thoughts. Another great reason is that our issues, which we really believe are just behaviours, are being carried out by our unconscious mind (try walking with only your conscious mind ~ it doesn’t work) the place to change is at the unconscious level and get your unconscious mind to do all the work.

That’s the great thing about the way all three of us work here at Cambridge Hypnotherapy. We can adapt our processes to you and your needs so if hypnosis isn’t required then that’s okay.

We once had a client who really didn’t want to be hypnotised and for a hypnotist that could have been a real problem! Not here we used other ways to help that person change comfortably. We have also had clients who have heard just how good hypnosis is and only want that and that’s what we use, we just adapt what we do, it’s as simple as that.

So back to the original question

The Answer:

Who cares as long as you do (get the benefit)

How we don’t do Hypnotherapy in Cambridge

 There’s a wonderful clip on Youtube

To me, one of the funniest men to create stories that come to life in your head.

This one’s a skit video.

Okay so maybe you need a more empathetic solution
