Why is your job really stressful?

Why is your job really stressful? In my survey conducted a few weeks back I realised a very crucial fact pertaining to professional careers A common question Is your job really stressful? was the theme of the survey. What was really uncommon was the result of the survey. I realised that a majority of the survey takers were happy with their job. Every morning was a new challenge to them as far as their jobs were concerned. However this was a positive feedback and contradicts the fact that many people are unhappy with their jobs. So I researched more on this topic. This is what I found out, 90% of the masses are happy with their job but extremely stressed because of many allied factors.

Let us see these factors in detail

Here goes the boss’s pet, a phrase used commonly against people that try to be extra friendly to their seniors or bosses. This is mainly done with the motive to get noticed in the eyes of your seniors or bosses. People who are called so cause unavoidable stress to the rest of their colleagues. Their colleagues won’t just envy such people but would be worried that their contribution towards the company would be overlooked and decisions could be influenced by that particular person. On the other side of this story would be the fear incurred by such people, of loosing the attention that they got from the seniors in the company. The co-operation level attained by their colleague would constantly be reducing. Hatred and anger would be emotions constantly shown towards people with this behaviour. This could be considered as one important factor that could cause that person to part ways from the company or […]

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 […]

Sports Hypnosis

Sports Hypnosis

Sports Hypnosis – Get the edge and find out how it can make you a great performer

Whether you simply want to feel more motivated to go to the gym, or whether you need a competitive edge to win. I use hypnosis to eliminate many obstacles that can be removed from your mind leading you effortlessly towards your goals and desires.

Sports hypnosis is now in the mainstream of sports development. The mind is part of the art of great performance – no mental direction – no performance. The points raised below will allow you to appreciate the importance of non interrupted and controlled visualisation that can achieve the desired results. The history of hypnosis in sport goes back to the 1956 Olympics where the Russians are testament to that winning for what is now the  Soviet Union 37 (Gold)     29 (Silver)     32 (bronze)     98 (total)

They took 11 hypnotherapists to the games.

The biggest percentage of sports people coming to visit Sports hypnotherapists tends to be those wishing to improve their golf. However, hypnosis can be equally useful with all kinds of individual and competitive sports. The greatest of champions and athletes also tend to be the ones who have learned to think successfully, they have mastered the psychology of their individual sport. You can do this too…

Hypnosis in sports performance is focussed on enhancing the mental state of that sportsperson or team. Achieving the edge in competition, one contestant over another is what its all about. Could be described as YOUR secret weapon, no one need know if you don’t wish them too. Consultations are done usually away from […]

Left brain vs Right brain

Left brain vs Right brain: What does this mean to the way you work?

We’ve all heard the terms left-brained and right-brained, but you may not know which side of your brain you use most, or why this knowledge is even important to you. We’ve explored how the different sides of your brain influence the way you process information, ultimately affecting how you communicate and learn—in your work environment and beyond.

From IT to creative fields, knowing your brain dominance, and that of others in your workplace, can help you adapt your message and bridge the communication gap so everyone can work more efficiently and more contentedly.

Small misunderstanding, big consequences
According to Business performance.com, poor communication in the workplace can be directly linked to increased operating costs and reduced efficiency causing:

* lower productivity
* employee dissatisfaction and turnover
* lack of understanding of business strategy
* lack of common direction

And, poor communication can also be extremely costly. IDC research shows that UK and US enterprises are losing an estimated $37 billion a year as a result of employee misunderstanding.

To help you improve your communication, we’ll take a look at the root of communication—how your brain processes information—and give you tips on how to better maximize the full capacity of your brain in a workplace setting.

What’s the difference?
Although we all work using both the left and right hemispheres of our brain, most of us have a dominant side which affects the way we process information, approach problems and communicate. Understanding the key differences can help you communicate (and also be understood) better every day.

The left side of the brain processes information from part to whole. Think of it as a linear approach; taking pieces of […]

Group Hypnotherapy Reduces IBS Symptoms

Group Hypnotherapy Reduces IBS Symptoms

Mary-Joan Gerson, Ph.D. and Charles D. Gerson, M.D. of the Mind-Body Digestive Center have been kind enough to send me the results of the research they presented at Digestive Disease Week 2010. Entitled “Gut-Focused Hypnotherapy in a Group Format Significantly Reduces Symptoms in Refractory Irritable Bowel Syndrome”, their study took a rare look at the effectiveness of gut-directed hypnotherapy in a group setting.

The study involved 75 patients who received seven 45 minute hypnotherapy sessions, one every other week, led by a clinical psychologist specifically trained in an IBS hypnotherapy approach. Group meetings included a brief opening discussion of the experience of having IBS in work and relationship life. Patients listened to the hypnotherapy tape at home between sessions. Data regarding symptom improvement was gathered at the end of treatment, as well as three, six, and twelve months.

The results indicated that the treatment was effective in reducing IBS symptoms by the end of treatment and throughout the year following treatment. Patients shifted their categorization of IBS as being “severe and moderate” to “mild and inactive”. (How nice does that sound?)

The study also sought to determine what characteristics would be predictive of treatment success. Interestingly, patients who were more likely to attribute their symptoms to emotional factors experienced less symptom improvement. On a more optimistic note, patients whose symptoms were more severe at baseline experienced greater symptom improvement.

The Gersons said it perfectly: “We hope that this more cost-effective group approach will make it more feasible for this kind of effective treatment to be made available to IBS patients.” My thanks to the two Dr. Gersons for sharing this important research. Perhaps it will inspire you to give gut-directed hypnotherapy a try.

Golf Think Away Your ‘Double Bogey’ Baggage

Golf Think Away Your ‘Double Bogey’ Baggage

Millions of golfers stand at the first tee, address the ball, take their swing, and then wonder why they can’t achieve the coveted level of play that Tiger Woods has been known for year after year. “The answer is rigid training and, of course, total focus on your game,” explains Dr. Kenneth Grossman, internationally-known golf hypnotherapist. “Unfortunately, Mr. Woods has lost that intense game focus because of distracting and very negative mental chatter caused by his recent personal issues.”

Dr. Grossman, who was recently quoted in a Time Magazine article (April 4, 2010 Edition), “Tiger at the Masters: A Test of Mental Preparation”, has been counseling professional golfers and other athletes around the world for over 30 years. “One of the major problems with golfers is that they can drag all their problems such as marriage, health, money, and low self-confidence issues with them at every hole.” He went on to point out that, “Many golfers not only carry their golf bag around 18 holes but they also drag an even heavier bag of personal problems as well. This excess baggage is a major cause of sub-par performance.”

As many pros have said, “Golf is truly a mental game.” Dr. Grossman has observed that when players don’t do well, such as Tiger Woods’ recent inability to make the cut at Quail Hollow or withdrawing from the Players Championship after only six holes, it’s often because of tension, outside distractions and symptoms of anxiety. “Hypnosis is a tool that counteracts stress and helps a golfer to relax physically and mentally,” added Grossman.

Dr. Kenneth Grossman has trained thousands of golfers in self-hypnosis, a process whereby your conscious mind steps out of the […]

Hypnotherapy Helps Homecoming Heroes

Homecoming Heroes

Hypnotherapy Helps Homecoming Heroes

As I write this Remembrance Day is fast approaching and the United Kingdom’s ongoing involvement in war zones like Iraq and Afghanistan (& Now Libya Added 23/03/11 and now Syria, Somalia and South Sudan 28/09/2015) always in headlines, the troubles homecoming heroes have in adapting to their return to civilian life is often overlooked.

The National Council for Hypnotherapy has pioneered a programme which allows our members to offer homecoming servicemen and women a free consultation/session to help cope with their return to civilian life after the stresses of warfare.

Such sessions, says the NCH chairman Paul White, will help with relaxation, removing anxiety, dealing with depression, processing traumatic events, dealing with loss, re-adjustment and building self-esteem.

Many returning servicemen and women have shown a high rate of stress.

Sessions, says the NCH chairman Paul White, will help with relaxation, removing anxiety, dealing with depression, processing traumatic events, dealing with loss, re-adjustment and building self-esteem. Everyone reacts to stress in different ways and to different degrees. Some people have more stress than others. Some people handle stressful situations better than others. Each person is triggered by different stressful situations, depending on their own make-up.

“Stress is one of the biggest threats to people’s health, happiness, and well being,” says White.

“Stress may cause confused thinking, depression, over-eating, excessive drinking, reckless driving, high blood pressure, heart problems, and a myriad of other health problems. The symptoms of stress are sometimes insidious and undetectable, until one day you feel overwhelmed with life. Everything bothers you, from your work to your favourite pet at home. You may even start […]

Hypnosis ‘can help ease motor neurone disease

Motor Neurone Disease

Hypnosis ‘can help ease motor neurone disease

THE power of hypnosis is being used for the first time in Tyneside to help control symptoms in patients with motor neurone disease. Health Reporter Helen Rae takes a look at this alternative form of therapy.

HYPNOTHERAPY can, at times, be associated with showmen peddling silly pranks in front of packed-out theatres. But this holistic therapy can be an alternative form of health treatment, which is said to use the healing powers of the mind to help tackle a whole host of medical problems.

And for the first time in Tyneside, hypnosis is being used to help those live with debilitating motor neurone disease (MND).

Lisa Cairns, clinical hypnotist at Newcastle’s St Oswald’s Hospice, is currently carrying out a PhD to look at the use of hypnosis in controlling symptoms in patients with the condition.

Her study involves helping patients control their saliva secretions, a common symptom of MND.

Since qualifying as a hypnotist in 2002, Lisa, of Woodside, Ryton, has helped as many as 10 people alleviate their symptoms of MND and curb their saliva problems by the use of hypnotherapy.

The 39-year-old said: “The original idea to use hypnosis for MND came from a patient who had tried medication and radiotherapy to control one of her salivary glands, with little benefit. MND patients produce normal amounts of saliva, but in some patients the disease impairs swallowing, which causes the saliva to spill out of the mouth instead of being swallowed.

“The use of hypnosis could appear to be an unusual approach, but dentists trained in clinical hypnosis use this technique to dry the mouth to allow them to carry out procedures.

“We also know from existing research that hypnosis can influence the […]
