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
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
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
Hypnotherapy for stress in Cambridge – Cambridge Hypnotherapy Christmas time is meant to be a time to relax, to withdraw from the stresses of work and spend fun time with the family. Well in theory that’s what’s meant to happen anyway! In reality, we become stressed and overloaded with the thought of food shopping for the big day, buying everyone presents and worrying about whether they’ll be well accepted. In fact, many people just wish boxing day would come so that they cou
Cambridge Hypnotherapy for Sleep Disorders Recently we have had a trend of enquiries at Cambridge Hypnotherapy for sleep disorders from potential clients. The term sleep disorders can mean anything from not being able to get to sleep, constantly waking up due to a light level of sleep, and all the way to people who sleep too much and are constantly tired! Hypnotherapy for sleep issues is a a great way to make a dramatic and easy change. When you think about it, sleep is 100%
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
Something special happening at Cambridge Hypnotherapy Lately I have been overwhelmed, in a good way, in having the opportunity to work with young people, young adults that is. With that I mean 19 – 21 year olds, wanting to get theirself together and doing something about it. It seems to me that it must take a lot of courage to get in touch with a Hypnotherapist, someone that does an ‘ism ~ Hypnotism and then be prepared to do whatever it takes to be the way they want to be! I
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
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 emotional
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
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 als
It’s here… The first of November… which means that Stoptober has officially ended! For those of you that don’t know, Stoptober was a public campaign backed by Cancer Research UK and The British Heart foundation set up to encourage mass quitting of smoking for the 28 days of October. Apparently research showed that those who quit smoking for 28 days are 5 times more likely to stay smoke free. This may well be the case, and for those that did participate in Stoptober I’d love t
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
I know Luke will soon writing of two amazing successes he received feed back from last week. Both to do with Fears and Phobias but with totally different and startling results. I’d like to tell of a client I saw last week too, which at the consultation the main issue was anxiety around driving (which is so so easy to change by the way). This changed however when we began the session ~ was anxiety around driving the cause of this clients issue, they thought it was when they ca
We have all made New Year’s Resolutions only to find them disappearing within a day or two from our minds. Why is that? One reason is that we all have a little baggage, some emotions like anger, sadness or guilt that seems to be around just when we don’t want it or lie in the background like a shadow. It’s these things that if we don’t let them go we will never get what we want and the thing is we deserve to have all the things we dream of having and experiencing ~ Well that’
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?

It’s an interesting but sad fact that divorce lawyers/solicitors do more business over the Christmas period than any other time of the year. The time of year when we hear ‘Good will to all (wo)men’, the giving time and that time when we think of new resolutions. Yet it seems for many we just can’t communicate our love for each other in a way that’s understood or received in a way we want it to be. So what in essence should be a wonderful time of our year where we get more of
Hypnosis, hypnotism ~ So why do we do this stuff? This thing , which some people say doesn’t exist and others hold in mystery (if only they knew !). Here’s the answer on the form of another question(s). Why would two young men, 18 and 24 year old respectively, decide to enter into the world of helping people and in affect totally risk their livelihoods? Changing steady careers to one of uncertainty. Why would someone highly experienced and respected in business say no to that
This article was written a little while ago for the Time Line Therapy Association about one of my clients and their most brilliant change in their life and showed how wonderful the effects of Time Line Therapy ™ are. And because it was such a big experience we thought we should put in on our blog as well Before we worked on this issue I was put to the test to see how good a hypnotist I was. To stop this client smoking in one session. I wouldn’t normally do therapy this way ar
