  • Does Absence Make The Heart Grow Fonder?

    Another one of those tired old clichés?  Perhaps.  Regular followers of this blog will have noticed that it has been quite some time since I last posted anything.  In fact, it was New Year’s Eve 2012 that I posted on the vagaries of making New Year’s Resolutions, so many months ago.  Have these followers missed me?

  • The Weight of a New Year’s Resolution

    So here we are, at the end of an incredible 2012 where many inspiring individuals (and teams for that matter) have shown us just what can be achieved through the vehicle that was The London 2012 Olympics.  Here we are looking toward 2013 and wondering what might be in store for us and perhaps even considering making a New Year’s Resolution.

  • Is It Okay To Be Selfish Sometimes?

    Just lately, I’ve had a number of clients for whom this question would resonate quite powerfully.  Most of us would see “being selfish” as a negative. I’m sure we’ve all fallen foul of hidden agendas and the selfish desires of other people and possibly those quite close to us in our lives.  I for one remember my mother telling me not to be selfish for one reason or another.  Quite frankly I think that’s one memory most of us would have.  But, when you’re being that completely unselfish “will-do-anything-for-anyone” can it go on to have a detrimental affect on your own health?

  • Can You Measure Happiness?

    A report on BBC Breakfast News highlighting a piece of research by the Office of National Statistics (OFN) asks that very question.  The report suggests that the most unhappy people do not come from the most deprived areas in the country, perhaps questioning the notion that money makes you happy.

  • People Watching

    Sat in my local community centre today, answering questions about hypnosis for anyone that cares to ask, I can’t help but watch people.  How they behave, their body language, everything but what they are actually saying to each other. (more…)

  • Everyday Hypnosis

    They say that all hypnosis is self hypnosis, i.e. you have to accept and expect the hypnotist to hypnotise you.  I don’t bother to hypnotise anyone who challenges me with something like “You can’t hypnotise me” because they will clearly fight it and do their best to prove me wrong.  So if all hypnosis is self hypnosis, wouldn’t follow that you can use this wonderful natural state of relaxation in everyday situations?

  • The Vagaries of Time

    Well it has been quite some time since I last blogged on these pages.  No excuse really, apart from the fact I’ve been very busy and it has been difficult to have the time to sit and write a considered piece without taking the time from something else.  Considering this lack of time I seem to be experiencing at the moment got me thinking how vague we can be about it, especially where hypnosis is concerned.

  • Why Worry? – 12 Tips for Dealing With Worry.

    In the immortal words in the lyrics of the song of the same name by Dire Straits, Why Worry?  Or you could follow the philosophy of the very clever lyrics by Baz Luhrmann in his song “Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen)” which simply state, “Don’t worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum”.  It really is no surprise that in this ever changing world, financial, technological and cultural, that we all worry about things from time to time.  But when one’s worries start to become a more deep seated anxiety that stops us from behaving in an appropriate fashion, it really is time to so something about it.
