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 […]

PTSD – Are you Traumatised and Stressed?

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder isn’t an exclusive for war veterans! Anyone can have it given they have been in the wrong place at the wrong time so to speak. That’s not dispelling or minimising the after affects of war either.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder can affect people who have been in natural disasters, air crashes, boat sinking ‘s, in fact accidents and catastrophic events even a car accident PSTD can affect you.

Here are some facts about PTSD.

It’s natural to be afraid when you’re in danger. It’s natural to be upset when something bad happens to you or your loved ones or even someone you know. But if you feel afraid and upset weeks or months later, it’s time to talk with your doctor. You might have post-traumatic stress disorder.

What is post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD?

PTSD is a real illness I’ll make that quite clear. You can get PTSD after living through or experiencing or seeing a dangerous event, such as war, a hurricane, or bad accident. PTSD makes you feel stressed and afraid even after the ‘REAL’ danger is over. It affects your life and the people around you.

If you have PTSD, you can get treatment and feel better.

Who gets PTSD?

  1. PTSD can happen to anyone at any age.
  2. Children get PTSD too.
  3. Witnessing domestic violence could trigger it
  4. You don’t have to be physically hurt to get PTSD. You can get it after you see other people, such as a friend or family member, get hurt.

What causes PTSD?

Living through or seeing something that’s upsetting and dangerous can cause PTSD. This can include:

  1. Being a victim of or seeing violence
  2. The death or serious illness of a loved one
  3. War or combat
  4. Car accidents and plane crashes
  5. Hurricanes, tornadoes, and house & bush fires
  6. Violent crimes, like a […]

Dr Natheera’s sleep technique

Dr Natheera Indrasenan was a guest on the Late Show a few weeks ago and her self-hypnosis technique to aid a good night’s sleep has proved so popular that we have decided to publish this page to help all you insomniacs out there!

This self hypnosis technique was taught to me by Paul McKenna during Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) training and is originally by Betty Erickson, wife of the great hypnotist Dr. Milton H. Erickson.

Safety:

I like this technique  because you are in control and it results in a much lighter trance than you would get from professional hypnosis, so that you can easily wake from it if you need to. It is simple to use in bed to induce sleep, but to this end, only use this technique in bed and never when you have to be alert for driving, operating heavy machinery etc.

How it works:

Hypnosis is communication with our subconscious mind. Your conscious mind is the thinking, judging, evaluating mind. Your subconscious mind is more like a computer which does as you say as long as you communicate with it in the language it understands; pictures, sounds, feelings. Some of my patients find they are busy all day and tired, get to bed and then wake up. This is because the conscious, thinking mind now has the opportunity to mull over all their worries which keeps them awake. As they think to themselves “I cant sleep”, imagine themselves staying up all night, feeling stressed, their subconscious mind (understanding the images and feelings) ensures they get what they want!   It’s like a self-fulfilling prophecy.

So this technique is to confuse the conscious mind and stop […]

Enemy Within

On World Mental Health Day, Monday 10 October, we launched a campaign to battle the stigma of psychological disorders that prevents hundreds of Veterans from seeking help.

This second phase of The Enemy Within Appeal is planned to last two years.

The campaign, funded by Comic Relief, will address the stigma that surrounds Veterans’ mental health disorders. It will raise awareness of our services, and battle the perception of shame that deters these brave ex-Service men and women from seeking treatment for their mental wounds.

In a recent survey carried out by Combat Stress, 81% of Veterans suffering from mental ill health, who responded, revealed that […]

Insomnia destroyed my marriage

Insomnia destroyed my marriage

One woman’s account of how sleepless nights robbed her of a husband

Most of us know the pain of one sleepless night and the crippling tiredness it leaves the next day.

But for a  quarter of the population, insomnia is a daily struggle. Bridget Davidson, a 36-year-old florist from Cambridge, spent seven years lying awake in bed next to her sleeping husband.

Here, she tells LORRAINE FISHER how insomnia ruined her marriage . . .

Restless nights: Bridget Davidson spent seven years lying awake next to her sleeping husband... and it cost her their marriageRestless nights: Bridget Davidson spent seven years lying awake next to her sleeping husband… and it cost her their marriage

Walking around the house from room to room, I ran my hand over every single wall that had once been mine.

My mind raced back through myriad memories — one, in particular, of my husband John and I picking up the keys to our new home and moving endless boxes into each empty room, then collapsing, exhausted, into our bed on our very first night.

Now, as John asked if I was ready to go so we could lock up for the last time, tears ran down my cheeks. I was saying goodbye to the house — and the marriage — I’d once adored.

Most marriages end because of betrayals,  hurt and anger on either side, but after seven years together, ours had ended because of sheer exhaustion.

John had told me that I had changed beyond recognition, that I was no longer the carefree, happy woman he’d met more than a decade earlier. And, harsh though it was to hear, I could only agree.

I had become a walking shadow of my former […]
