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 Top 3 Limiting Beliefs That Hypnotherapists Have Around Technology

By Recording

The Top 3 Limiting Beliefs That Hypnotherapists Have Around Technology “It’s just too hard.” Well, that’s only because you don’t know it yet. And if you’re watching this video now, then I’m confident you’ll be able to figure out anything that you’re presented. I’ve run so many workshops now with people at various levels of skill and experience and I’ve yet to find someone who hasn’t learned something new through the workshop. Most people are pleasantly surprised to discover not only how easy it is, but also how creative and fun it is. I know that when one of the course participants starts to tell me how much they enjoyed the experience, they’ve tapped into a new skill set that they’re going to happily and willingly turn to over and over. “I’m just not technology-minded.” I’m sure prior to learning hypnosis, you might’ve said that weren’t hypnotically minded either yet that belief didn’t stop you from learning that new skill. And then when you were studying, you might’ve learned a process like parts or regression and it might’ve seemed so easy in class and then you went out to work with real people – remember that! – and it took…

Is There Such Thing As An Addictive Personality?

By Addiction

Is there such thing as an addictive personality? Stephen Bright, Edith Cowan University Most of us know somebody who tends to get over-involved in certain behaviours, and the saying often goes that they must have an “addictive personality”. But is there such a thing? The idea of an addictive personality is more pop-psychology than scientific. What is personality? To understand why the idea of an addictive personality is flawed, it’s important to first understand what psychologists mean when referring to personality. Personality is comprised of broad, measurable, stable, individual traits that predict behaviour. So by definition, engaging in excessive behaviours cannot be considered a personality trait. Read more: Everyone’s different: what parts of the brain make our personalities so unique? Though, there are personality traits that are associated with addiction. Neuroticism is one of the “big five” personality dimensions. These are the five core traits that drive behaviour. They include openness to experience, conscientiousness, extraversion/introversion, agreeableness and neuroticism. People who score high in neuroticism tend to be easily emotionally aroused. They are also more likely to engage in a number of excessive behaviours, including: over-eating, excessive online gaming, social media over-use and substance dependence. People who are highly neurotic might…

Review: Clive Girdham – Modified Rewind Online Training

By Hypnotherapy, NLP, Phobia, PTSD, Trauma

Review: Clive Girdham – Modified Rewind Online Training When Clive first started posting about the Modified Rewind, it immediately caught the interest of everyone. How could one approach be so effective at helping so many people overcoming their fears, phobias, and PTSD? One of the things I will say about Sydney based hypnotherapist Clive Girdham is that this man can definitely walk the walk as well as talk the talk. Scratch beneath the surface and every claim Clive makes about his work is absolutely true. For a few years, Clive offered a free online Mastermind series of presentations and, following that, produced a Stop Smoking online course that many consider being one of the best out there. Having worked with Clive on a few in-person workshops, Clive also has the uncanny knack of being endlessly engaging. While some training may have you feeling a bit sleepy after lunch, there is something about the energy that Clive brings to his work that provokes curiosity and interest. Perhaps he is using his own Jedi mind tricks in his presentation style but when it is being used for the purposes of good, you have to be grateful for that. Expanding the hypnotherapy toolkit…

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…
