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 fo

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 co
Recently I read an article in the national newspapers highlighting a story about a young boy of 12 years old who had developed a phobia of flying and now been stranded in the Middle East for more than one year. Eventually, with the aid of Hypnotherapy, he managed to overcome his fear and fly back with his Father to meet up with his Mother and Sister who had already returned to the UK. Fear of flying is one of the more common phobias that we work with here at Cambridge Hypnoth
So once again Stoptober is here, and the government are trying to push helping smokers become a non smoker for 28 days. Although this is obviously a great initiative, I do find it flawed in many aspects! Firstly, why stop for 28 days? Why not stop smoking FOREVER? If people stop smoking for 28 days they are apparently 5 times more likely to stop smoking permanantly. I would counter that with 100% of those who do stop forever, actually have stopped forever? Strange, eh 😉 The
Recently my wife and I were lucky enough to be blessed with the birth of our first son. It was a truly magical experience, and something that will stay with me forever. I thought I’d write a bit here about the process as my wife has now had first hand experience of using Hypnotherapy for birthing, something which has become known as Hypnobirthing. As a full time Hypnotherapist in Cambridge, I guess my skills were always going to be called into action on this one! I had recent
I’ve now been a Hypnotherapist in Cambridge for over 6 years. My background has always been Sport and Psychology, going all the way back to when I was at College and studied the 2 subjects at A-Level. Luckily, with the P.E syllabus there was a section on Sports Psychology, and also within the Psychology Syllabus there was a section on Sports Psychology. Having left College, I decided to train and become qualified as a Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer having trained in
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
Every week here at Cambridge Hypnotherapy we receive numerous enquiries that seem to centre around a certain theme that is current in the news or media. When we watch or read about a particular situation in the news, or watch something happen in our favourite TV programme it be very easy to relate it to our own personal lives and allow it to stir up a wide range of emotions from regret, guilt, fear or even simply sadness or happiness. We have decided to focus upon this and st
The clearest indication for us at Cambridge Hypnotherapy that summer is on the way here is when our enquiries regarding losing weight with Hypnotherapy increase, as they have done over the past few weeks. Hypnotherapy is fantastic with helping clients to lose weight LONG TERM, and not just for the short term like many other weight loss plans such as Slimming World, Weight Watchers, and all those other fad diets out there. Make no doubt about it, they will ALL help you lose we
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 b
So it’s February, and we’re now 5 weeks into the New Year. How many of you made a New Years Resolution such as stopping smoking, losing weight, finding a new job or even starting a new hobby? More importantly, how many of you stuck to it and are STILL doing it? Over the past few weeks we have seen a rise in enquiries from clients who have fallen by the wayside with their resolutions and reverted back to their old unwanted behaviour and are now realizing that they need a littl
SO what is it about the Yo-yo effect of dieting? Why do so many people go on a diet and crash only to find they become heavier than they started and more saddened and unmotivated? Why do some people fall off the healthy eating and exercise regime and never get to their weight and shape they dream of and long for? There’s probably one answer to all those at the heart, with a few side issues tagged along. When we set our new weight goal how many know that the new you will be a
2013 is upon us, and no doubt 1000’s of people out there are now starting to plan their new healthy eating diets and joining up with their local gyms in order to lose weight, as this year they’re sure things will be different….. I admire their initial motivation, and their positive approach to weight loss is wonderful to see, but I really do think that these people are approaching losing weight COMPLETELY wrong. The reason I think this is simple….. FOOD is not the problem, TH
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 thems
Don’t stop smoking for Christmas! Some people think it would be great to stop and quit smoking over the Christmas period. But think about it seriously…. Yes, absolutely stop smoking and stop when you are at your best and can prepare for it properly. You see you smoke for a reason, it’s not addictive, it’s a behaviour you do for a positive reason / intention and if you just go ahead at one of the most stressful times of the year your heading for disappointment. “So what can I
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
Recently I had an interesting conversation with someone that got me thinking “I wonder who else feels this way?” On a night out last week, I was introduced to somebody as a ‘hypnotist’. This usually gets a common covering of the eyes gesture, or them comically looking away so as to prevent eye contact with the whole ‘look into my eyes not around the eyes” lines. However this time it was slightly different, in the sense that the individual I met was a huge psychology fan, who

What would it be like to spring clean your mind?
We all get he need to spring clean our house, desk, office or some other space that just gets so cluttered after time.
What would you say if I said that spring cleaning your mind is one of the easiest things we can do for ourselves.
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
