A real mix

Lovely client who came in for a consultation that had some issues. The very time I met her, you could tell she was in distress, miserable and downtrodden in how she presented.

The consultation was interesting because this happens a lot, the client presents with an idea of why they are there, but by the end of the consultation, there is quite often other issues going on and some deep rooted from many years ago. So we agreed on a plan of action and a process of dealing with the issues individually in a particular order. Now, this order is really important as quite often when Hypnotherapy is used, one thing is determined by another and if you do it right, one issue has a knock on effect with the others, sometimes resolving an issue identified early on.

This process that I use, 

About

David Pook | Clinical Hypnotherapist, CBT Therapist and NLP Practitioner based in Gillingham, Dorset.

 

Positive Mental Attitude.

This is an attitude that i have and have been using since 2014. NLP has given me this thought process in everything I do and encounter. There's always a positive out of a negative.

In some way, its been a mantra for me since a life threatening event, it has become more and more of my "go to" attitude. Having experienced many things in life, it now serves me well.

Am I a therapist or a counsellor?Many people ask this question and its just a name. I am a qualified Hypnotherapist but I also have basic counselling skills amongst other things, but what I do know, is that I can help you achieve what you need and want to achieve.

Support I can offer you:

  • Anger Management
  • Anxiety
  • Confidence
  • Conflict
  • Depression
  • Low mood / self esteem
  • Relationship support
  • Stress

Anxiety

Anxiety is a feeling of unease, such as worry or fear, that can be mild or severe. Everyone has feelings of anxiety at some point in their life. For example, you may feel worried and anxious about sitting an exam or having a medical test or job interview.

Symptoms
  • Feeling nervous, restless or tense.
  • Having a sense of impending danger, panic or doom.
  • Having an increased heart rate.
  • Breathing rapidly (hyperventilation)
  • Sweating.
  • Trembling.
  • Feeling weak or tired.
  • Trouble concentrating or thinking about anything other than the present worry.

Exam Stress and Anxiety

What is exam stress?


Lots of us know what it's like to feel stressed, but it's not easy to describe what stress is.

There's no single definition of stress, and it might feel different for you than it does for someone else. How we experience stress can feel different at different times. It can also depend on what's causing it.

Feeling stressed, worried, or under pressure around exams can be difficult to manage. But there are things that can help – it's about finding what's right for you.

Hypnotherapy

Hypnosis is a state of heightened suggestibility in which a person is more open to suggestion. It is often used in therapy to help people change their behavior or overcome negative thoughts and emotions.

Hypnotherapy is a type of mind-body medicine that uses hypnosis to help people address a whole variety of issues, including some common ones:

  • Anxiety and stress
  • Pain management
  • Weight loss
  • Smoking cessation
  • Habit control
  • Insomnia
  • Performance anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Depression
  • Eating disorders

 

Hypnotherapy Myths !!!

  1. Hypnosis is mind control: Hypnosis is not mind control. It is a state of focused attention and heightened suggestibility. The person being hypnotized is always in control and can choose to accept or reject suggestions.

  2. Hypnosis can make you do things against your will: Hypnosis cannot make you do anything against your will or moral code. You are always aware of your actions and can refuse to comply with any suggestion.

  3. Hypnosis is only effective on weak-minded individuals: Hypnosis can be effective on individuals with a wide range of personalities and cognitive abilities. It is not a sign of weakness or gullibility.

  4. Hypnosis is the same as sleep: Hypnosis is not sleep. Although it can induce a deeply relaxed state, you remain awake and aware throughout the process.

  5. Hypnosis is a magical or supernatural phenomenon: Hypnosis is a natural state of mind that has been studied and used for therapeutic purposes for centuries. It does not involve any supernatural or magical powers.

 

There are several differences between a hypnotist and a certified clinical hypnotherapist. A hypnotist utilizes short-term hypnosis for entertainment purposes and intentionally attempting to humiliate someone to obtain laughs. Hypnotist also may or may not have training in hypnosis; some hypnotists are self-proclaimed, have no training other than self-taught, and trial and error efforts.

 

A certified clinical hypnotherapist is the complete opposite.  A certified clinical hypnotherapist utilizes hypnosis for long-term changes towards personal change and development. Clinical Hypnotherapist have received training and engaged in yearly continued education to provide the best ecology possible for client’s personal development and desired outcomes.

 

Why Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is considered a holistic approach to healing because it aims to address the root causes of problems by treating the whole person, including their physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects.

Hypnotherapy is based on the idea that the mind and body are interconnected, and that the mind has the power to influence physical health and wellbeing. Through hypnosis, I can help clients access their subconscious mind and create positive changes in their thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors.

Holistic therapies like hypnotherapy are often used in conjunction with traditional medical treatments to provide a more comprehensive approach to healing. By addressing the underlying causes of issues and promoting overall wellness, hypnotherapy can help people achieve a greater sense of balance and wholeness in their lives.

 

Hypnotherapy is a type of therapy that uses hypnosis as a tool to help individuals achieve a state of relaxation and heightened suggestibility. During a hypnotherapy session, the therapist guides the client into a trance-like state, where the client is deeply relaxed and open to suggestions.

In this state, the client is able to access their subconscious mind and explore thoughts, feelings, and memories that may be causing distress or hindering their progress. The therapist may use different techniques, such as visualization or positive affirmations, to help the client address and overcome their issues.

 

DOES HYPNOTHERAPY REALLY WORK?

Studies have shown that hypnotherapy can be an effective way of reducing symptoms and easing side effects of a number of issues, including pain management, stress, PTSD, anxiety, stopping smoking, and more. 

Hypnotherapy is a type of mind–body intervention in which hypnosis is used to create a state of focused attention and increased suggestibility in the treatment of a medical or psychological disorder or concern.

Info

1.Hypnosis can help to cut stress-related high blood pressure.

Your parasympathetic nervous system is a network of nerves that relaxes your body after periods of stress or danger. It also helps run life-sustaining processes, like digestion, during times when you feel safe and relaxed.

Relaxation has so many benefits where stress and stress on the body is concerned.
More relaxation = Better sleep, repair and body processes.
Better sleep = better overall functioning of the body and mind.
Better functioning of the body = less stress.
Less stress = positive interaction with blood pressure.
 
Perhaps try one of the Relaxation recordings to help.

Past Life Regression

Past life regression is a therapeutic or spiritual technique that aims to help individuals explore and potentially recall memories or experiences from what is believed to be their past lives. The concept behind past life regression is rooted in various belief systems, including some forms of Hinduism, Buddhism, and New Age spirituality. It suggests that a person's soul has lived through multiple lifetimes, each with its own set of experiences and lessons. Past Life Regression can also help identify problems with your current life and potentially the reasons around an issue.

Here's how past life regression typically works:

  1. Hypnosis or Deep Relaxation: I will guide you into a deep state of relaxation or hypnosis. This is intended to make you more receptive to accessing subconscious memories.

  2. Exploration: While in this relaxed state, you are encouraged to recall memories or images that surface. These memories are often described as coming from past lives and may involve specific events, locations, or individuals.

  3. Narration: You will verbally describe your experiences while under hypnosis. I will ask questions to help you explore and elaborate on the details of these past-life memories.

  4. Integration: After the regression session, you and I will discuss and interpret the memories and experiences that came up. This discussion can provide insight into current life challenges, relationships, and personal growth.

The Positive Need for Hypnotherapy

Ever wondered what went wrong and how to fix it?

Do you have a positive need to change things in your life?

 

One of the best things about hypnotherapy is its ability to help people make positive changes in their lives quickly and effectively. Hypnotherapy can be used to address a wide range of issues, from anxiety and depression to phobias and addiction, and it can often produce results in just one session.

Another great thing about hypnotherapy is that it is a non-invasive, drug-free therapy that can be used alongside traditional medical treatments or as a standalone treatment. This makes it a safe and accessible option for many people.

Hypnotherapy is also a client-centered approach, meaning that I can work collaboratively with you to identify and address your specific needs and goals. This personalized approach can help clients feel empowered and in control of their healing journey.

Finally, hypnotherapy can provide not only symptom relief but also a deeper understanding of the underlying issues that may be contributing to the problem. By addressing these root causes, hypnotherapy can help clients create long-lasting positive changes in their lives.
