It’s THAT time of year again!

It’s time to start thinking about NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS…

There won’t be many people promising themselves that they’ll start smoking, but there are still a goodly number who would like help to make 2017 the year that they become non-smokers.

If you truly want to stop smoking, you can – IF you are really determined to say goodbye (and good riddance!)  to that smoking habit.

Do you suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome?

While the list of conditions that hypnotherapy can successfully treat is a long one, the most notable inclusion is Irritable Bowel Syndrome. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has recognised hypnotherapy as a possible treatment for IBS. Our hypnotherapy practice can offer IBS sufferers the proven benefits of the evidence-based North Carolina Protocol, which was created by Dr Olafur S. Pallson, Professor of Medicine at the University of North Carolina. This protocol can be delivered only by practitioners who have been given permission to use it.
For more information about the North Carolina Protocol please visit www.gutbetter.co.uk

Are your feelings eating you up?

This is the entry (submitted by artist Zoe Westwood) that won the British Obesity Society’s 2015 poster competition.

The message is clear: people sometimes eat in an attempt to overcome “bad” feelings; unhappily for them, it’s a strategy that doesn’t usually work in the way intended. They are unlikely to feel very much better – but they will probably get fatter!

Of course there’s nothing wrong with treating yourself to “a little bit of what you fancy” – but that “little bit” must stay a little bit. Too much is always too much!

One important way in which hypnotherapy can help people seeking to control their weight is through addressing the “bad feelings” that underpin some eating habits.

“The psychologic factors in obesity are paramount…Treatment of the patient should be based on an understanding of the psychologic reasons for his overeating”. – S. Charles Freed, endocrinologist, 1947.

Is it ‘irrational’ to be afraid of heights?

A Hypnotherapist writes…

I am currently working with a client who has a fear of heights – a.k.a. acrophobia. He is highly self-critical and says his fear is “irrational” and “stupid”. Is it? Not necessarily, according to Australian researchers who say that “…heights often evoke fear in the general population…and this suggests that acrophobia might actually represent the hypersensitive manifestation of an everyday, rational fear”. That supposition should help acrophobics “normalise” their fear – an important step on the road to managing it.

(Research citation: Coelho, C. M. and Wallis, G. (2010), Deconstructing acrophobia: physiological and psychological precursors to developing a fear of heights. Depression & Anxiety, 27: 864–870. doi: 10.1002/da.20698)
