Freedom Technique (EFT) - Let Hypno-CBT® help YOU to reduce anxiety, let go of unwanted habits, tap into yourCREATIVITY
and improve PERFORMANCE
ALERT and TRADITIONAL HYPNOSIS are widely used to improve sports performance and the same methods can help you to break unwanted habits, let go of fears and apprehensions, enhance your sense of well-being, and increase your productivity and creativity, too.
The focus of our work together is on helping you identify and develop realistic and achievable goals, build your self-confidence, model positive processes and outcomes in your inner mind, reduce and get rid of your limiting beliefs and negative self-talk, and visualize making more positive choices and succeeding over time. If you are motivated, and if you do your homework, you may see improvement right away. Most people benefit in as few as two 60 to 75 minute sessions.
Sessions are tailored to YOU using cognitive behavioral ways to help you formulate your goals. I teach you to use an abbreviated form of self-hypnosis (Autogenic Training relaxation) along with other evidence-based, world class ALERTnon-trance self-hypnosis techniques to help you marshal your inner resources and reach your performance goals. Autogenic Training (AT) has been used by NASA in their astronaut programmes, as well as by Fortune 100 companies to foster improvements in individual performance and creativity. It can also be a powerful stress management, self-balancing tool. Click here for a partial list of research on stress-related situations where AT practice has been used tp help since its development over 90 years ago.
The EFT 'tapping' method can be done by yourself once
you have learned the technique. It is a form of self-hypnosis that uses
positive thought restructuring, graded desensitization to apprehensions
and fears, and physical relaxation combined with gentle tapping on a
sequence of accu-pressure points and repeating key self-help
affirmations and phrases. We work together to develop the affirmations
and phrases that you speak out loud while you tap on yourself. These
phrases focus on enhancing your own natural restorative and coping
EFT is an emotional version of acupuncture, without the needles! It is non-invasive and rapid-acting and is used by the Veteran's Stress Project to help vets deal with the trauma of combat.

on your needs.
Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Applied Relxation (AR) and Autogenic Training (AT) are proven self-maintenance, well-being enhancement tools for learning how to pay attention non-judgmentally in the present moment in everyday life. Although this may sound simple to do, for most people it takes training and practice. My role is to teach you how to train yourself to use these methods in your everyday life. These techniques help people to self-balance in relaxed and compassionate ways, at almost any time and anyplace.
No special clothing or postures are required, and even people who have limited mobility may benefit from the training. Classes run 90 minutes for groups and 60 minutes for one-to-one. They are held once weekly, although the schedule may vary as classes are individualised to meet your requirements. You train yourself between classes. I also ask you to keep a daily diary to track your personal progress, to note any questions you have, and so I can adjust training to your own specific needs. There is a pre-course 45 minute meeting, and a complimentary follow up session 3 months after the last class.
Did you know that research comparing many different studies of hypnosis has shown that on average smokers are over five times more likely break the habit with hypnosis than by willpower alone? And that hypnosis in general is also proven to be more than twice as effective as the use of nicotine gum?
We meet after you do at least a week of pre-session homework. Then we have a single 2 hour face to face session, with further homework assigned, and with optional phone, email and weekly face to face follow-up at no charge to you within the first 6 weeks. If you really want to stop smoking, and you must really be motivated and want to stop, then one session could be all you need.
