Hypnosis – Valentines Day

Adv Dip H – Advance Diploma Hypnotherapy

I ended January on a high with the achievement of gaining the Advance diploma in hypnotherapy. After completing many hours of research, study and a few late nights I put it all together and passed with a high standard of work. Hypnotherapy is really about helping people help themselves, whilst studying is good for me it is done with the belief that it will be more beneficial for the client now and in the future. We live in a changing world and keeping up sometimes takes away our energy and motivation, the key is to make it work for you and not to become a slave to trends and fashions just to keep up.

I’m sure there are plenty of people around the Manchester area that are under stress from trying to keep up with:- work, the needs of family, money and possibly illness or caring for someone. Relaxation through hypnotherapy is just one way of winding down. There are many people throughout the world using self-hypnosis everyday to realise a state of  calmness and improve control over their lives. Hypnosis is not only for the individual, group sessions are often held to enable a group of friends to discover how hypnosis and relaxation therapy can work for them. Other groups use hypnotherapy for weight loss control or smoking, of course hypnotherapy in a group means that it is ‘generalised’ and not a specific tailored treatment for each individual. Having said that, group hypnosis and hypnotherapy does appeal to many.

A new month February – ‘Valentines day’ and ‘Pancake Tuesday’ (or Shrove Tuesday) just two days that generate a number of passions and commercial stimulation.  Cards, flowers, chocolate hearts, flour eggs and ‘squeezy’ lemon juice just a few items that will be on many of our shopping lists in the coming days. Whatever you are buying for your loved ones attach a special thought to the gift, think about what it means, what message do you want it to give and it will make it that little bit more special, go on give it a try!

 

 

Happy New Year – Goodbye to Christmas

The Festive Season 2011 is now over and done with bring on 2012!!

This time of year is when the pressure for many people becomes overwhelming. Thinking of the people who are no longer here to share the joy of life, thinking of the good times gone by and worrying about what the future holds. All of these thoughts and emotions can have an affect on us.  Some people cope well with this time and absorb the celebrations, enjoying the lifting of their spirits! Others are overcome with grief of a time or situation gone by and they become unsettled possibly suffering from stress or depression and wanting this time to pass quickly. Some may well turn to the relief of over drinking or even overeating. Help may be close at hand, just by simply listening and giving time to the person who is encountering this difficult period the gloom may be lifted and they too can enjoy the ‘time of goodwill’ and look forward to a New Year of valuable life.

It is also a great time to get in touch with those long standing friends and relatives who you meant to contact during the year and for the normal reasons of everyday life you failed to complete the excercise. Making ‘resolutions’ often seems to be a quick fix statement then the rest of the year kicks in and the resolutions are but a distant memory! Planning is not everyones’ cup of tea, I find that it helps me and I have helped clients through hypnosis to make planning work (see hypnotic coaching).

There is a saying attributed to John Lennon that says “Life is what happens to you while  you’re busy making plans” which is a good way to make us think about how we use plans in our life.  Making an effort to get in touch and see old friends can provide a welcome boost to your life whether or not you use a plan. Put a deadline date on when you will make that contact and just do it!! You do have to start somewhere and at some time, now or in the future, using New Year wishes is as good a place as any to start, good luck.

Thank you for reading this blog please accept my sincere wishes for a Happy New Year 2012, and make life work for you while you are here to enjoy.

 

Sir Jimmy Savile – a year after his death the truth is out!!

The Silent Saint????? Not anymore, just an accused child abuser and user.

This man once admired and loved by many has moved on from our world to another and is now in disgrace as appalling information comes to light about his secret or maybe not so secret past. For me although he was a popular broadcaster and personality he was also a person who dedicated his time and energy to helping hundreds, probably thousands of people to have a better future now all of this has been marred and soiled by his private predatory behaviour towards young people who trusted him.  Yes he did use his celebrity status to gain a stronger profile for charitable causes yet he obviously used this powerful position to put people in fear of him so that he could manipulate them for his own sexual pleasures. He seemingly did his own thing with numerous young women even under cover of the BBC and his behaviour is now officially part of an official enquiry by the police. For him he has no questions to answer as he is dead, leaving many people full of anger knowing that some important questions will never get the answers they deserve.

All of us who admired him are now disgusted that he could be this monster of a person, no matter what enquiries are  made there can be no punishment for him only the people who are left behind enduring the awful memories that they have hidden for so many years.

So what was Sir Jimmy’s secret? how could he dedicate himself to selfless tasks for example as a hospital porter, the charity jogging & walks and his work at Stoke Mandeville Hospital where he helped to raise money for the Spinal Unit, NSIC (National Spinal Injuries Centre).  His secret was something that we could never imagine the ideal cover and keys to the many doors to accessing his prey. The young and at risk individuals some who were fighting hard to overcome physical challenges should not have been placed at this kind of risk.

There will be many people who are still grateful for the long and productive life of Sir Jimmy Savile, for his help and kindness on all levels to people from all walks of life, sadly all of that good work will be tainted forever now by his secret molestations of underage children.

 

Stress how do I beat it?

Stress  how do I beat it and is it killing me? was a question put to me recently by a long standing friend  who feels he is running a marathon everyday just to stand still. Modern life appears to create greater stresses on us all in one form or another.

We have work and careers, all driven by targets and the threat of the outcome if you fail, the modern day whip! Irrespective of your profession or job the pressure of targets exist, many people have a need to achieve, others a desire to achieve and this is an area that helps to generate good and bad stresses.

Back to my friend who really believes that the stress in his life will eventually kill him, may be not directly, it could be the cause of an illness leading to his demise, who knows. He has worked hard in his job carving a way up the ladder and has in the main enjoyed his work coping with the ups and downs of management and life changes. Now factors outside of his control impinge on his performance, frustration creeps in he is no longer in control and thus stress changes his normally mild, easy going ‘can do’ manner to one of  ‘don’t bother me I’ve got things on my mind’.

Not only do people have their own issues to contemplate, there are the cutbacks to jobs, a longer working life, price rises, inflation and institutions you can no longer trust (dare we mention banks!) that muddy the already cloudy water. Yes there are people out there who take this stuff in their stride and what is stress to them? For every one person able to cope and manage their difficulties there is another who cannot. Maybe they like my friend have now turned a corner into an unknown street full of perceived threats that they have not experienced before, what do they do? What do we do?

Ever felt like that? Ever felt like you don’t want to go to work and stayed in bed? Do you struggle to smile or even laugh? Is every small issue likely to become a major problem? You have to eat something even though you have just had a meal? Drink has become a welcome friend? These are all indicators that stress could be knocking on your personal door.

Don’t think you have to grin and bare it! Some might say “keep your chin up and show some fighting spirit” which is a great attitude and normally imparted by the person who is sitting on top of the world where all of their ducks are in a row and life is a breeze (possibly a banker!).

Professional help is out there for you or at least talk to friend or someone close to you (wife, partner etc).  Getting things out in the open will help you to identify the issues that lead to a stressful existence, talk about how you could overcome some of the issues, one piece at a time and make a plan.  For example if you are going to improve your diet or start a fitness regime, write it down with a start date and put the note somewhere to remind you of your decision and then think about you and identify the great qualities you have!

Good luck

 

Fat, I’m Fat, what do I do? Help starving people

Plenty of people may think to themselves ‘I’m Fat, what do I do?’, not many will admit to friends or family that weight and eating is their problem.

Lets face it being fat has a number of negatives that cause concern not only in a medical, health related way, it also raises personal issues with loved ones and friends, it can damage your career, ouch! it can lead to depression and a miserable existence.

Eating can be seen as the essential function of life, the fuel that keeps the engine going yet here in the west we have too much choice in the way of food and we put a great deal of pressure on the engine by eating too much food.

In the poorer countries of the world there is scarcely enough grain and water to keep people from dying through starvation, just the extreme basics can keep people alive and often that is not available to them. Why is there such an imbalance? I fear that question would never receive a simple one line answer.

The internet has an array of products to buy and read all related to the latest miracle of how to lose weight, how to look good, have a flat tummy in 30 days, etc. etc. the list goes on and on.

I try and help people to overcome their weight issues and I’m sure there are plenty of other people out there doing the same.  I find that while we are all different and different foods effect us in different ways there is always one action or measure that can be successful in weight management – Eat Less, weigh your portions, keep a daily log of your intake, just one week will give you a picture that may surprise you!

Once you have a clear picture of the quantity you eat try and reduce it by say 20% and see what happens, the next week another 20% until you start to lose weight.

One thing we could all do throughout the wealthy west is to miss out just One meal every other day. Calculate how much that meal or fast food fix would have cost and donate the amount to the starving people of our world, just an idea, think what we could achieve?

Lose weight and feed people – would that make you happy?

NHS-Hypnotherapy, It’s The Future

In a recent BBC Radio 4 interview two ‘professional’ experts were discussing the merits of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy and how it has a part to play in the future of U.K. health-care.

Surprise, surprise at last these people and their associates have discovered what other people have known for decades that hypnotherapy does actually work WITHOUT the need for drugs.

Dr Peter Naish, president of the Royal Society Medicine and Dr Clare Gerada, chair of the Royal College of GPs agreed that using hypnosis for a range of conditions could serve patients better and save money.

How strange that after so many years of serious ‘drug pushing’ the scientific establishments are now keen to dabble in an art form to help people. And of course this approach should only be available through the trustworthy medical profession!!

Provision is currently under way to make training available to trainee medics. It should only be in the hands of “professional medically trained people, Doctors, nurses,  etc.” according to Dr. Naish and not left to ‘people listed in ‘Yellow pages’.  Are there any GPs in Yellow pages I wonder?.

Yes, no doubt there are some unscrupulous people out there who shouldn’t be offering any form of therapy to the public and yet recently we have seen how the NHS employ a number of people who shouldn’t be left in charge of a piece of wood least of all caring for patients. (Channel 4 showed appalling staff behaviour in a Northwest Hospital and the whistle blowing of (alleged) staff cruelty at a care home are two examples of  how our trustworthy establishment operates).

Being very cynical here and based on my own personal experience, is this acceptance of Hypnosis anything to do with a reduction in funds for GPs. There is pressure (or will be) to cut back on the dishing out of drugs and to ensure they (GPs) keep their own level of income add another ‘professional’ skill to the Gladstone bag.

I can’t see any of these trustworthy professionals standing up and saying ‘actually we have behaved like the bankers, for years we have been spending the tax payers money on outrageously expensive drugs when we could have been using Hypnosis and associated therapies to treat you with great outcomes in  shorter periods of time and without a string of side effects’.  Sorry that’s my cynicism getting in the way again. I wonder if they (GPs) are going to train in Reiki, Reflexology, Osteopathy, Herbal medicine to name just a few of the ‘alternative’ treatments on offer to the public outside of the NHS.

The above is just my personal view and thoughts on a topic that helps me to help people.

Herbalist Helps by getting to the root of the problem

I have been very fortunate to know Peter Jackson-Main during his time practicing from Abbotts of Leigh. Both my wife and I have received some outstanding support from him to help us through recent ‘blips’ in our health.

Now that Abbotts of Leigh has changed hands, and Peter will no longer be practicing from there we look forward to him sorting out new premises in the North West area and his continuing support.

For anyone who is unfamiliar with Peter’s work, he is a Naturopath and Herbalist specialising in herbal medicine and Iridology (for more information checkout the link to his website from my links page).

Peter has his main practice in Cambridge  (The Natural Centre) and has clients visiting him from around the country, so good is his reputation for getting down to the real cause of an illness and helping if he possibly can.

Talking Helps

Conversation – A Time to Chat

So often in this busy life that we lead time for whole hearted, honest conversation is at a premium. When you do manage to find some free time, getting together with family or friends for a free flowing chat isn’t always easy for a range of reasons. Luckily this weekend we have been fortunate enough to have a nephew stay with us and to catch up on what has been happening in his life the ups (which there are many) and the downs (very few).

He is a student in his final year and is excited about his future however there are areas of his future that he is nervous about and it was great to be asked for my thoughts and views on the issues he raised. In my role of  Hypnotherapist it would be unethical for me to treat him as a client, general talking and exploring different aspects of his plans as a caring Uncle is fine. So needless to say a few hours over dinner soon led into an engaging, enlightening marathon event that took us way into the early morning.

Being the mirror into which my nephew could reflect was interesting I started to see the real person with the attributes that I hadn’t noticed before perhaps because he is now an adult or the chance to talk and engage with each other was such a long time coming.

From a professional point of view from training in Hypnotherapy and NLP, building a rapport is a key to success with your client. So that is what we did naturally without trying or being aware of the need for an agenda, just a warm lengthy good natured discussion. Perhaps we should make more time to spend talking with family and friends, I’m sure we would feel better.
