"Savour The Flavour" is one of the many tips I give those who may be struggling with trying to lose weight. 
 
This is a quick tip that will reduce moments of stress and/or anxiety. 
 
 
Reasons to try hypnotherapy 
 
It's fast and effective 
Hypnotherapy is often used because it is often faster and more affective than many other therapies, of course this depends on the issues and the client. 
 
It is versatile for many issues/conditions 
From A-Z, Arthritic pain to Zero anxiety when faced with a fear. Ok so that's not really an issues beginning with "Z" but I think you get my point. 
If you're not born with it then the chances are very high that it can be changed - emotionally, mentally and psychologically speaking of course. 
 
Here is a wonderful and very interesting success story form a previous client. 
 
Fear of flying was so bad for Mum of three, Ali that she developed a painful outbreak of psoriasis at the prospect. It almost ruined the holiday of a lifetime but Ali was determined not to be beaten and was given my details from a personal fitness instructor based in Basingstoke. 
 
I worked with Ali to produce a realistic, effective and personalised treatment plan so that she could not only put her anxiety and panic behind her, but relax on the flight and enjoy her family holiday to Las Vegas. 
 
 
 
What is Hypnosis? 
 
Opinions vary on the exact definition of this naturally occurring state of mind. Contrary to what many people believe, hypnosis is not always a trance or a sleep state even though a person in hypnosis may appear to be sleeping. Hypnosis is really a natural state of mind and is an important part of everyday life. Whenever our mind wanders, daydreams or is focused on something, such as reading a book, driving a familiar route, watching a film we are in a state of hypnosis. 
 
Why do we experience post traumatic stress? 
 
There is a little part of the brain called the amygdala, which is shaped like an almond, this part of the brain is responsible for emotional reactions and is primarily involved with your survival, it is responsible for more than this but I will keep it simple for explanation purposes. 
When the amygdala is bombarded with huge volumes of emotional value it goes into a panic and is unable to send the information to the hippocampus, which would then pass this memory to the neocortex for evaluation. 
This means that the brain is unable to make sense of the situation or event experienced and so the amygdala stays in a constant state of arousal causing flashbacks and high levels of anxiety. 
If only I could watch as you click off this page when the reality of what I'm saying strikes a cord with you and begins to sink in, it is a horrible feeling, I know I've been there! I bet plenty of you will disagree with what I am about to say, but perhaps you want to look in your own back garden before you start disagreeing, all I ask for is that you keep an open mind and read till the end before you make a judgment. 
 
I hear all the excuses people give and time and time again it is money that comes top for reasons that is stopping someone seeking help, AND they wont go to the doctor because they don't like the therapy that's offered. 
Firstly, and the easiest to answer is, do you really want to change? 
Secondly, why are you using money as an excuse? 
Before you read on I would like to say that I have been in a position of being skint, in fact in debt and needing help from a therapist, so I know first hand what it's like. I have made all the excuses too! 
 
Ask yourself, what is more important than your health and wellbeing? 
Another success story, this one is from a former Doctor - keep climbing higher and higher Doc! 
 
For most of us, a family day out cycling to the top of a mountain with amazing views sounds idyllic, but for Georgia, also a keen triathlete, this would trigger crippling anxiety. Worrying that she would pass on her phobia to her children, former Doctor Georgia contacted me after a past client recommended me to her. 
 
When faced with the heights involved in mountain biking or the other activities that she and her family enjoy, Georgia found that she would freeze or cry uncontrollably and said that even high bridges or walkways could trigger a stress reaction. 
 
So many people out there are having difficulties with their weight in fact more and more people are becoming overweight and plenty are on a losing battle to reduce the weight they have gained for a couple of reason. 
 
Firstly, some people are emotional eaters; these people are getting some form of satisfaction from eating regardless of their emotional reasons for eating (comfort, reward, stress release etc.) 
 
Secondly, some are just simply over eating; by having 1 mouthful extra per meal is enough to make a big gain over the course of a year. 
If you have 3 meals a day that’s 21 extra mouthfuls per week, or 1092 extra mouthfuls per year that (I hope you’re ready for this bit) equates to around 80 meals extra per year and this is with out high days and holidays like Christmas! These numbers are based on average meal sizes, now who actually has an average size meal I don’t know. 
Anxiety seems to be a big thing these days, we all experience it on some level and some peoples’ experience of anxiety is gargantuan but it’s a perfectly normal and natural feeling! 
Anxiety is just our body and brain looking after us, so if you have ever experienced the feelings then well done, praises your mind and body for doing its job. 
 
If you can experience it, then of course you can “un-experience” it and I know those of you reading this who have Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) or suffer from anxiety on a regular basis will be thinking that I’m talking out of my derrière, right? 
Now here’s the thing, you were not born with GAD, it’s just learnt behaviour and I am going to give you a tool that I frequently use in my practice to help you to manage those symptoms. Please don’t think that anxiety is going to leave you forever, it is there to help you and to look after you.
