What's the difference between Stress, Worry & Anxiety 

17/8/20

Over the last 5 months I've morphed my in person hypnotherapy business to an online business.


As you may have noticed my website has taken on a new look. As I do make the changes and updates all myself as I enjoy the creative side if you notice any imperfections please forgive me as it's a work always in progress.  


Zooming in to the past 2 weeks I've enjoyed sharing 2 online Group Presentations on Zoom who I've shared with 19 people as my complementary gift during these times. The topic was sharing the awareness of the difference between Stress, Worry & Anxiety and tips in coping with the chaos of life to help find your inner peace.


From this I've created a 4 week online Helping You Find Your Inner Peace in amongst the chaos group program allowing us to go even deeper.  


The first online group will commence 25/8/20 weekly on Tuesdays if you'd like to join me. READ MORE

Children

30/6/20

Research studies found that teenagers who stress about doing well in their exams are likely to get lower results than peers who remain calmer.

  • Stress in students can lead to poor academic achievement, apathy, depression, behavioral problems.

  • Using a simple approach helps children and teenagers manage stress and develop their own ability to use mental skills for their well being and success.

  • Teaching them resilience and valuable life skills is crucial.

  • Giving children the right help early on can set them up for life.

  • It is estimated that one in ten children and young people aged 5-16 suffer from a mental health difficulty this is around three children in every school class.

  • As a Clinical Hypnotherapists I can consider alternative approaches to address these issues. Read More 

 Self-Esteem

23/6/20

In a 2017 research in the UK by Dove, it was found that 61% of 10-17 year old girls in the UK have low self-esteem.

  • Self-esteem is an area that can affect so many different areas of an individual life.
  • From sports professionals to teenagers, weight issues to addictions, self esteem can lie beneath many of the issues that I work with as a hypnotherapist.
  • We all have times when we lack confidence and do not feel good about ourselves. 
  • But when low self-esteem becomes a long-term problem, it can have a harmful effect on our mental health and our day-to-day lives.
  • Self-esteem is the opinion we have of ourselves. 

    Synonyms or near-synonyms of self-esteem include: self-worth, self-regard, self-respect, and self-integrity. 

  • Self-esteem is an individual's subjective evaluation of their own worth. Read More.

Hypnosis and Depression

17/6/20

  • The World Health Organisation (WHO) documents that 264 million people across the globe suffer with depression. 

  • It is a leading cause of disability worldwide, is a major contributor to the “overall global burden of disease”,

    and can also lead to suicide.

  • It affects all ages but afflicts more women than men.

  • It can cripple functionality in many areas of life, rendering null and void the ability to work, socialise and maintain healthy relationships.

  • It manifests itself in many ways both physically and emotionally

Lockdown and Alcohol

Have you been drinking more?

8/6/20

  • Let’s look at the effects in particular in Britain. They are drinking more alcohol during the COVID-19 lockdown, this could be felt for a generation, some experts have warned.
  • Alcohol sales rose by 67% just prior to the lockdown, as many prepared to drink at home.
  • The question remained, however – were people stocking up because they feared shortages? 
  • Or were they actually drinking more?
  • The research suggests that around 8.6 million UK adults have drunk alcohol more frequently under lockdown.
  • Worryingly, nearly one in five (18%) daily drinkers have further increased the amount of alcohol they have consumed since lockdown.
  • Why does it matter?

Hypnosis and Sport

by Sheila Henley Clinical Hypnotherapist 

29/5/20

The world continues to be gripped by the 

Coronavirus global pandemic. 

It affects everyone, including top-notch athletes, 

unable to physically train as they would like. 

  • Athletes require many attributes to excel at their chosen sport - practice, determination and skill are but a few.

BUT…

“Sport is 10% physical - and 90% mental.” 

  • Whoever coined the phrase (and no-one actually seems to know!) referred to the too-oft-neglected importance of mental attitude in sport. 
  • Athletes are well aware of how physical condition can affect performance - but how aware are they of MENTAL conditioning? 
  • Sport is largely about strength in adversity, and that makes it particularly relevant in our current lockdown world READ MORE!

Is Fear Keeping You Smoking? 

27/4/20

  • If you’re a smoker and worried about the risks around COVID-19 then now would be a good time to change it, to think about quitting for good. 
  • It’s a harsh reality that if you’re a smoker you’re more likely to get acute respiratory infections and have a higher risk of those infections becoming severe.
  • There has never been a better time to stop smoking.
  • But quitting is hard for many and perhaps particularly so at a time of great stress and when many of our routines have been so suddenly disrupted.
  • Perhaps, like the majority of smokers, the mere thought of stopping fills you with panic.
