Why Cambridge Hypnotherapy?

Which Hypnotherapist do I choose?

If you do a google search for a hypnotherapist in your area you will undoubtedly be bombarded by countless websites all promising you they can help. The question you have to ask yourself is which one of them do you choose? How do you know they can deliver what they promise? They are very good questions, and I thought I’d give you a few reasons as to why we believe that we at Cambridge Hypnotherapy are the very best in the field.

  1. We offer a complimentary initial consultation to all of our clients. This allows you to come and meet us in person and to get a feel for the way that we talk about things. Anyone can have content written to go on a website but by meeting us face to face you will soon see that we don’t only ‘talk the talk’, we also ‘walk the walk’!
  2. We have over 50 years of combined experience. Whilst working with clients for this period of time we have worked with and helped clients let go of every issue you could imagine. No matter what your issue is, we believe we can help you.
  3. This had been our main and mostly only source of income. We don’t have other jobs which pays our bills, so we need to get results to continue to get our high levels of referrals.
  4. Our referral rate is super high. Many of our clients send their friends and family members to see us once they have experienced the power of change.
  5. Quick and long lasting change is what we specialise in. We don’t spend weeks and weeks talking about your issues. We want you to achieve your desired outcome and experience progress straight after our first session together.

Hypnotherapy v Counselling

Here at Cambridge Hypnotherapy we get a lot of enquiries from people asking about the difference between hypnotherapy and traditional counselling. I thought I’d take a few moments to give you a quick breakdown and hopefully highlight how we see Hypnotherapy as a quicker and easier way to change for you.

The brain:

The way the brain works, although a very complex organ, is pretty simple and straightforward. It is simply a computer inside your head that is constantly processing information and running behaviours accordingly. Whatever the situation we are in, whatever we touch, taste, hear or see is simply information that floods into our brain. We then unconsciously process that information, make sense of it and then choose a behaviour that fits. There is an input, a process and an output.

Which bit to work on

The input is completely out of our control, as we cannot dictate situations or other what people say/do. The output is the behaviour that needs to change, and that is what counselling tries to do however working with that, we feel, is a much harder way to change. You have to learn coping strategies which by default means we are learning to live with the problem. Imagine having an anxiety attack and trying to manage it? Those who suffer with anxiety will tell you how exhausting and near on impossible that is. Imagine someone with an alcohol problem not drinking, but still believing it is the best way to escape their problems. They would desperately want alcohol all day yet not be able to drink it. Sooner or later they will probably be so desperate to escape their issue that they will end up having a drink and be back at square one. You will always be treating the symptoms, so we believe the best way to make the change desired is to go to the middle part of this process. We can help our clients change the way their mind thinks about certain things. If this happens then the mind has to find a new behaviour to suit its new programming. They will also find themselves behaving completely differently without even having to put effort in as the mind will be doing it unconsciously.

We can help you

So what would you like to change? Would you like to  let go of a phobia, drink less, let go of anxiety, stop smoking or anything else in fact? We can help you do this in a very quick and easy way, so why not fill out the form on the right to arrange a complimentary initial consultation, we’d love to speak with you!


New Years Resolutions….. why I dislike them, and the reasons why….

Why limit yourself to one day?

So no doubt many of you made a New Years resolution just over 1 week ago, and I’m keen to find out how you are getting on. Did you decide to lose weight, stop smoking, to drink less alcohol, to train towards a marathon, or to make a particular lifestyle change……. for the umpteenth time again? I’m sure you made them with the absolute intention of following them through this time, yet a study of 3000 people showed that 88% of people who also made them failed for various reasons. These include setting unrealistic goals, failing to track and monitor them, all the way to actually forgetting about them!

One of the issues we at Cambridge Hypnotherapy have with New Years resolutions is why do you need to have only one day in a whole year to change? Quite often people plan their commitment for months before January 1st, so why not start as soon as they know they are going to be doing it? The other reason I dislike the resolutions that people generally make is that they are as mentioned above, either unrealistic or unmeasurable. For example someone wishing to lose weight will often focus on such a huge goal that they become disillusioned and give up. Imagine saying  to yourself that you won’t have chocolate again, its not realistic so when you eat some everything goes to pot and you give up. Or people decide to exercise 6 times a week when realistically only 3-4 are possible. The feeling of failure kicks in and again they give up.

The other reason is the goals are often not clear enough, which makes them impossible to track or measure. Someone may say they want to lose weight, and they way they are going to do it is just by trying to eat better. What does that actually mean? How can you work towards a goal if you don’t know what that goal is?

So, its now the 9th January 2020, and if you have made a resolution and still going strong then massive congratulations and keep going! If you made one and failed, or didn’t make one but don t want to wait 12 months to decide to change, then heres a few pointers to help you:

  • Set a specific goal
  • Make it measurable
  • Set a deadline, a date in which you want to have achieved it by.
  • Track your goal, and adjust your behaviour if need be
  • Be accountable

If you need any help and would like to discuss how we can help you make these changes permanent, why not drop us a message here and we’d be happy to offer you a complimentary initial consultation, or call us 0n 01223 720 120.
