Your Guide To Hypnosis

Your Guide To Hypnosis

There are many stories about hypnosis and hypnotherapy being dangerous, turning people into chickens, people not being able to wake up, and unscrupulous hypnotists exploiting their ‘vulnerable’ patients. However there are many people who are adamant that it has helped change their lives, some from Dudley, Tipton, Wolverhampton and much further afield – I know of for sure. I have helped them succeed in their goals. Millions of people swear that it has helped them with many issues such as weight loss, quitting smoking, other addictions, confidence, phobias, stress, success, IBS, and many more issues.

Many people are missing out on this powerful, yet very safe therapeutic tool because they are too afraid to use it. I hope to dispel these fears by answering these common questions about hypnotherapy right here and now!.

Can I be hypnotised? Most people can go into a hypnotic trance. The only types of people that cannot be hypnotised are … 1. Those suffering from psychosis or a thought disorder 2. A person with a low IQ 3. A person who does not want to be hypnotised. It is very easy to resist hypnosis if you want to.
What is a hypnotic trance? It is a normal and natural state that most of us experience several times a day without even knowing it. It commonly happens when people are driving. Have you ever driven somewhere and not really remembered the journey?, I have just missed my junction. It also often occurs when reading a book or watching TV. Sometimes you can be so absorbed in the book or TV programme that you are not consciously aware that someone is talking to you, or even where you are sat. Hypnosis […]

Diet Cokehead

Diet Cokehead – mum drinks SEVEN PINTS of fizzy pop a day

Diet Cokehead ... Claire Ayton

Diet Cokehead … Claire Ayton

CLAIRE’S headaches as she gave up Diet Coke are more likely to be down to caffeine withdrawal than the sweetener.Her 2424mg of aspartame a day is unlikely to have done any lasting harm. But I can only imagine the bloating she felt consuming such large  quantities of gassy drinks. On every level, kicking her four-litre a day habit is a step towards better health. Hopefully she can one day enjoy the odd can in moderation.

By AMANDA URSELL
Sun Nutritionist

   =====

A MUM told yesterday how she guzzled so much Diet Coke she was diagnosed as ADDICTED.

Thirsty Claire Ayton, 36, ended up needing a fizzy “fix” of SEVEN PINTS a day.

She said yesterday after finally beating a ten-year addiction to the low-calorie treat with the help of a hypnotherapist: “I’d drink it all day.

“People used to comment at how many bottles we bought.”

Teaching assistant Claire reckons that since getting hooked at the age of 26 she knocked back a whopping 25,692 pints — or 14,600 litres.

By the end she was buying 14 two-litre bottles a week — and it was costing her £1,300 a year. But none of the fizz was for husband Des, 37, who runs a car parts business, or sons Conor, 14, and Ellis, 12.

Claire, of Pailton, Warwicks, said: “It was me who drank it all.”

Eventually hypnotherapist Russell Hemming got her to quit her habit by going cold turkey.

He said: “This is the worst case of fizzy drink addiction I’ve ever treated.” He found Claire had become hooked on aspartame — the artificial sweetener in the […]

Hypnosis overrides your brain

Hypnosis overrides your brain

The air is spiked with the scent of antiseptic and the steady, punctuating beep of a heart monitor.

The patient is in a deep sleep; the gastric band operation she hopes will transform her life is due to commence.

But Natalie Couldwell, a size 22 mum of two whose weight has plagued her since early childhood, is lying fully-clad on a couch in a tiny meeting room at Hillsbrough Leisure Centre.

There’s the faint hum of conversation from the coffee shop next door. Every now and then, a tannoy call for a gym staff member rings out.

And the “surgeon” on whom Natalie is nailing her hopes has not a single medicinal qualification.

Alison Tynan is a qualified clinical hypnotherapist; she is hypnotising Natalie into believing she is undergoing a gastric band operation, the drastic weightloss surgery which has soared in popularity, despite its risks and costs of up to 6,000 for non NHS patients.

A real gastric band operation reduces the size of an obese patient’s stomach with an adjustable band so only small meals can be eaten; usually dramatic weightloss follows.

Natalie’s stomach will be untouched. But hypnosis will hopefully convince her mind that a band is in place – and be enough to stop her from binging on her beloved chips, bread, crisps and big family meals.

Moments earlier I had watched the Stocksbridge supermarket worker close her eyes and fall under Alison’s hypnotic spell.

Rhythmically and repetitively, she talked of steps Natalie was encouraged to slowly descend, […]

How hypnotherapy can help to cut down your drinking

Cut down your drinking

How hypnotherapy can help to cut down your drinking

It’s a blustery Saturday morning and a group of strangers – 14 women and one man – are discussing their drinking habits in a West London hotel. It’s not an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, but everyone at this one-day workshop, run by the clinical hypnotherapist Georgia Foster, is concerned about how much they are drinking.

champagneMany of them have fibbed to their families about where they are. One neat young mum, who would look more at home at an NCT coffee morning, admits that she can’t remember when she last managed a day without a drink. An older woman, with big curls and an emerald kaftan, says she feels deprived if she can’t look forward to several glasses of wine in the evenings. Her neighbour, elegant and fortyish, says she got so worried when she found she was drinking more than a bottle of wine a day that she went to Alcoholics Anonymous, but it wasn’t for her.

These women could hardly be described as binge drinkers or ladettes. Yet, along with other middle-class wine-lovers, they are the latest focus of government concern about alcohol. This month the Department of Health fired the latest salvo in its Know Your Limits campaign, after comments by the Public Health Minister Dawn Primarolo in March: “Professional women who drink too much, but do so without causing harm to others, have for a long time gone under the radar. People need to be reminded of the health consequences. It is not only the issues around breast cancer but also, increasingly, liver disease and ruptured bladders.”

Because they drink at home (or in […]

A tot of hypnosis stopped me drinking

Hypnosis stopped me drinking

A tot of hypnosis stopped me drinking

Over the Christmas period I was suddenly surprised by faith. I don’t mean that I found God; I mean that over a few days, against my preconceptions, I become a true believer in hypnosis. On December 5 I went to a hypnotherapist to be hypnotised into stopping drinking, and it worked.

ProseccoAs a scientific materialist, I have always been sceptical about alternative therapies. There may just be something in black boxes or Rolfing or homeopathy, but there just isn’t enough evidence – or in some cases any evidence – that they work. There certainly isn’t enough scientific evidence about any of them to justify chancing National Health Service money on them. All the same, hypnotism seems to have done something remarkable for me.

It began when my GP, who is a friend and knows I love medical talk, was discussing treatments of fashionable obsessive compulsive and eating disorders: he remarked that hypnotherapy seemed to work surprisingly well for some people. “Does it work for drinking?” I found myself asking. He replied that it was worth trying and recommended someone nearby.

This is not a confessional column. I am not proposing to use the word alcoholic. I reject the notion of middle-aged, middle-class binge drinkers. All I am saying is that I recognised late last year that the time had come for me to take control of alcohol before it took control of me; there are alcoholics in my family, and my husband’s parents conducted life afloat on a choppy sea of dry martinis, carefully chosen wine and digestifs. Hypnosis sounded quick, and if it worked, easy. So off I […]

Hypnosis for smoking cessation sees strong results

Cardiac patients more motivated to quit smoking than patients with respiratory disease

Hospitalized patients who smoke may be more likely to quit smoking through the use of hypnotherapy than patients using other smoking cessation methods. A new study presented at CHEST 2007, the 73rd annual international scientific assembly of the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP), shows that smoking patients who participated in one hypnotherapy session were more likely to be nonsmokers at 6 months compared with patients using nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) alone or patients who quit “cold turkey”. The study also shows that patients admitted to the hospital with a cardiac diagnosis are three times more likely to quit smoking at 6 months than patients admitted with a pulmonary diagnosis.

“Our results showed that hypnotherapy resulted in higher quit rates compared with NRT alone,” said Faysal Hasan, MD, FCCP, North Shore Medical Center, Salem, MA. “Hypnotherapy appears to be quite effective and a good modality to incorporate into a smoking cessation program after hospital discharge.”

Dr. Hasan and colleagues from North Shore Medical Center and Massachusetts General Hospital compared the quit rates of 67 smoking patients hospitalized with a cardiopulmonary diagnosis. All patients were approached about smoking cessation and all included in the study were patients who expressed a desire to quit smoking. At discharge, patients were divided into four groups based on their preferred method of smoking cessation treatment: hypnotherapy (n=14), NRT (n=19), NRT and hypnotherapy (n=18), and a group of controls who preferred to quit “cold turkey” (n=16). All patients received self-help brochures. The […]
