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….

How Much Does Hypnotherapy Cost in Australia?

By Counselling, Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy, Therapy

How Much Does Hypnotherapy Cost In Australia? I just want to know how much hypnotherapy costs… Imagine for a moment that you had a medical condition that was causing you enormous discomfort. You phone the doctor and you tell him the symptoms you’re experiencing. He tells you a list of possible causes that could be contributing to those symptoms. You would imagine in order to make a thorough assessment, the doctor would need to begin work and to go the process to assist you. For most people, the immediate question in these instances is, ‘when can I come to see you?’ In most cases when it involves mental health, it is ‘how much is this going to cost?’ Because mental health can often shape our reality, while living with it seems challenging, there almost seems to be more of a tolerance to this kind of mental pain than physical discomfort. When we see our loved ones experiencing mental anguish though, such as anxiety, stress, depression, or mental processes that encourage emotional eating and habitual behaviour, we have to wonder if they’re not being fooled by their own beliefs. So, if you’ve Googled and found this page and simply want to…

How To Use Your Brain’s “Delete” Button

By Addiction, Anxiety, Depression, Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy, Mindfulness, OCD, Smoking Cessation

How To Use Your Brain’s “Delete” Button Neurons that fire together, wire together. Back in 1949, Canadian Neuropsychologist Daniel Hebb first used this phrase to describe how pathways in the brain are formed and reinforced through repetition. This means that every experience, thought, feeling, and physical sensation triggers thousands of neurons, which form a neural network. When you repeat an experience over and over, the brain learns to trigger the same neurons each time. Our brain cells communicate with one another via synaptic transmission; one brain cell releases a chemical (neurotransmitter) that the next brain cell absorbs. This communication process is known as ‘neuronal firing’. When brain cells communicate frequently, the connection between them strengthens. Messages that travel the same pathway in the brain over and over begin to transmit faster and faster. With enough repetition, they become automatic. You’ve heard the saying that ‘practice makes perfect’; this is the scientific explanation of why it does. This is essentially how we create those unconscious programs that run who we are; the way we think, the perception we see, the experiences that form the beliefs we hold, and the habits that we do. Of course, this can be used in a…

Becoming a Non-Smoker: Establish New Habits

By Habits, Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy, Smoking Cessation

Becoming a Non-Smoker: Establish New Habits The positive intention of that smoking habit Last week, we explored the positive intention of that smoking habit and what benefits it offers you. When I talk to many people about why they continue the smoking habit, I hear all manner of reasons. Some will say that it gives them an opportunity to socialise with other people while some, ironically, will say that it gives them an opportunity to get away from other people. Some people will believe that it relaxes them and helps them to manage their stress, while others have even offered me excuses like ‘sex is always better when you have a cigarette’. I kid you not. Regardless of the reason why you began to smoke, there was some benefit that you received from it so strong and positive that you made the decision that this was a behaviour you were going to commit to as a coping strategy and manage to find the will power and strength to maintain that habit several times throughout the day. That’s pretty impressive, so who says you don’t have the resources available already to flip it around and use those same skills to become…
