Melbourne Hypnotherapists Practice & Network Group Gets Tapping

By Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy

Melbourne Hypnotherapists Practice & Network Group Gets Tapping What is EFT/Tapping? For a while there, I was curious about what this ‘tapping’ was and if it actually worked. I had remembered speaking to a friend and asking him about his thoughts on tapping and discovered that he had just completed a course on it. When I asked him what it was, he spoke about meridian points and other related topics but one thing that struck me was how he talked out it getting out of the thought. I thought this was an interesting concept. Recently, when Gayle Dwyer was telling me about her upcoming Emotional Freedom Technique (aka EFT) course, I asked if she might like to present to the Melbourne Hypnotherapists Practice & Network Group to give them an experience of what tapping is. She certainly delivered. For those curious, check out the replay video below! The Melbourne Hypnotherapists Practice & Network Group The Melbourne Hypnotherapists Practice & Network Group began in 2019 with multiple aims; the first was to help build confidence in hypnotherapists with their craft, while a secondary aim was for experienced hypnotherapists to have a platform to share their wisdom, knowledge and to help mentor….

The Elmans Join The Melbourne Hypnotherapy Practice & Network Group There is rarely a bigger name in hypnotherapy than Elman Anyone who studies hypnosis and hypnotherapy is inevitably going to come across the name Elman at some point in their study.

How To Get The Best From Your Online Hypnotherapy Session

By Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy, Therapy

How To Get The Best From Your Online Hypnotherapy Session During the COVID-19 crisis, it is understandable that the safety of everyone through social distancing and innovative use of technology is paramount. As a result of this, Release Hypnosis has stopped seeing clients face to face for the time being and moved all the client sessions to either online or over the phone. While many may have had an initial reluctance to this, they’ve quickly come to recognise many of the benefits that this transition has offered. The two most notable of these is that there is no travel time and traffic to contend with, as well as allowing yourself the ability to feel more relaxed as you do the session in the comfort of your own home. Here are a few pointers that will help you to get the best out of your online hypnotherapy session. 1. Ensure you have a suitable space where you can relax and not be disturbed during your hypnosis session During self-isolation, some times trying to find a spot where you can remain undisturbed can be a challenge. Your session is likely to go for somewhere between one hour to an hour and a…

5 Ways To Become a Better Hypnotherapist

By Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy

5 Ways To Become a Better Hypnotherapist When it comes to being a hypnotherapist, I doubt there are few of us who can claim to know it all. I remember back to my days when I was studying, one of my lecturers was telling us a story about Milton Erickson, possibly one of the most famous hypnotherapists ever. Now, I will readily admit that I am paraphrasing here and I can’t seem to find the actual quote, but I do love this story and it does offer so much to me that I feel the need to share it. As Milton was drawing towards the end of his life, he apparently observed that he had been doing this hypnosis work for most of his life and he was only just beginning to get the hang of it. If the world’s greatest hypnotherapist felt that way, then it certainly gives me permission for feeling that there is still so much to learn at this early stage of my career. And yet I’m in a unique position because I’ve been doing this enough to have some insights about this, and I’ve been fortunate to frequently spend time with people who have been…

Here Is Why I Don’t Do New Year’s Resolutions

By Addiction, Anxiety, Habits, Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy, Motivation, Smoking Cessation, Uncategorized, Weight Management

Here Is Why I Don’t Do New Year’s Resolutions This time of year, your social media news-feed is likely to be inundated by posts about New Years Resolutions. It’s a great time of year to tell everyone how you’re disappointed with yourself for [insert problem behaviour] and how you’re going to stop doing [insert problem behaviour] in the new year. While it’s nice to have a resolution, rarely does it actually work with many people abandoning them within the first week. Being real with you for a second, even I have been guilty of flooding social media walls with marketing about ‘new year’s resolutions’ because there are still many people who subscribe to them. Regardless of my own personal beliefs, it is obviously a wise move to let people know I might be able to help them and I do stand by the benefit of getting additional support to achieve them. Statistically, most people will fail with their new years resolutions and it tends to feel more of a token gesture about which ‘flaw’ to fix than anything else. When we break it down, what we’re really looking at here is habitual behaviour and how to change the behaviour which…

Could Hypnosis Be a Great Christmas Gift?

By Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy

Could Hypnosis Be a Great Christmas Gift? With Christmas just around the corner, could hypnotherapy prove to be an ideal Christmas gift? This time of year can often be quite challenging in trying to determine what to get your loved ones. If you’re like me, you want to get those people you care about something of value and something that can be meaningful for them. You could get them a book, or a pair of socks, or an instore voucher and hope they like it. Or You could give them the opportunity to work on themselves using hypnotherapy. It’s the time of year to reflect and consider what next. This time of year inevitably makes people feel nostalgic and reflect upon their year. It’s also the time of year where people consider how they might want to be in the following year. This year is even more special because not only are we leaving 2019, we’re leaving ‘this decade’ and stepping into the ’20s. It really is the best time to consider what habits you would like to leave behind and what you want to come in 2020. Give the gift of healing to a loved one, or to yourself….
