How one man saved $3,600 in two weeks with hypnosis

  This gambler’s results blew me away I have been practicing hypnotherapy for over twenty years and I class myself as a competent therapist. I have studied and attended workshops in England, America and Australia.  Now and again I get a client whose results blow me away I don’t usually work Sundays A man rang me on a Saturday evening and wanted help to stop gambling.  He was going away for two weeks and he wanted an appointment on the  following day, a Sunday.   I have never worked on a Sunday. I need that day to relax, clear my mind and get ready for Monday. I made the appointment for 11.00am Sunday. He arrived right on time.  The session went well.  I pride myself on having a good record treating gamblers.  Not only do I help them stop gambling, I help them find the reason why they gamble in the first place.   There is always a reason and sometimes it even goes back to their childhood. I also give them twelve months support.    He came back two weeks later. Not only had he not been gambling, he had also stopped smoking.  This was an extra he asked me to factor in. He’s up $3,600 in just two weeks  He had saved $4000 not gambling in those two weeks. He also saved $400 not smoking. My fee was $1000. That’s a positive $3,600 in just two weeks. Imagine how much his life – and yours – will change with that kind of difference. It’s your turn If you gamble more than you think you should, give me...

How Hypnosis Can Help With Bullying In The Workplace

If you are experiencing bullying at work, you may be wondering what you can do to deal with the problem. Bullying can be seriously detrimental to your mental health, and could even prompt further symptoms of depression and anxiety. You spend many hours per week at work, so an uncomfortable working environment can significantly impact on your overall well-being. The good news is, there are things you can do to combat workplace bullying – and methods you can use to cope with the problem. More people are turning to hypnotherapy in an effort to deal with a difficult workplace, and to help them find the strength to cope with work bullies. Are you Being Bullied at Work? According to the Fair Work Ombudsman, an employee is bullied at work if: – “A person or group of people repeatedly act unreasonably towards them or a group of workers.” – “The behaviour creates a risk to health and safety.” Bullying in the workplace can take many forms. Often, it manifests as aggressive or intimidating behaviour, such as managers yelling at staff or making threats. It can also include teasing and humiliating employees – for example, playing practical jokes on somebody. Bullying at work is often dismissed as ‘banter’ between colleagues, or a normal part of the working environment. However, a person who is being bullied can suffer serious harm to their mental health. No worker should have to put up with bullying behaviour or feel uncomfortable when they are at work. Other forms of workplace bullying include managers placing unfair work demands on their staff, excluding them from receiving rewards or...

My analogy of the Richards Process

My analogy of the Richards Process Judith Richards The Richards Process is something I have been practising for the last two years.  Prior to that I considered myself an accomplished practitioner.  I was satisfied with results that I was achieving.  Many of my clients were personal referrals.  I also had excellent testimonials and short video clips – see them here on my site. I have to attend so many workshops a year to keep up my qualifications.  At one event the main speaker for one of the workshops cancelled due to illness, Judith Richards was a ring-in.  Her presentation made sense.  Some of the presenters were, in my opinion, wafflers. First she gave her background of where she was coming from.   In her first marriage she had been extremely abused and traumatised, both physically and mentally – to the extent that she couldn’t show her face in public.  She didn’t go under; she worked out how to fix it.  She then studied hypnotherapy and used that skill as the tool.  She worked up a very good practice using the skill of hypnosis and the knowledge of what she had been through in her own personal life.  When she finished her presentation she stated she intended to run a two-day course to teach other therapists her own personal skills.  I immediately shot up my hand and fortunately I was one of the group she selected. As we go through life there are milestones that, on reflection, have a major influence on our lives.  One of the main ones in my life was joining the Royal Marines.  That was a period which...

Taking the Stress out of Achieving your New Years Resolutions

New Years Resolutions I am writing this blog, on the 1st January 2016. I can visualise the thoughts of thousands of people, making their New Years Resolutions. Why not it’s, naturals and it’s a positive step into the New Year. How resolute are you and can you keep them? There is no reason why you can’t. Why not let the power of hypnosis help you. I am speaking from experience of many years of practicing hypnotherapy. There is a lull just before Christmas and during Christmas week. In fact if a client wants help to lose weight, just before Christmas, I advise them to wait until the New Year. If they go ahead, making commitments, just before the festive season. They are only going to torture themselves during the Christmas period. Getting stressed and frustrated at the parties that welcome in the New Year. This creates stress and anxiety. Just imagine going to a party, drinking soft drinks and nibbling on healthy food, that’s if there is any healthy food available. You are going to feel the odd person out and not joining in. If there is a medical reason, that is different. If you over indulge, that’s better, giving that added impetus why hypnosis to help you? Because in the hypnotic state you are gaining even more control, than in the conscious state. Your subconscious is like a computer, better than any computer that Microsoft or Apple ever produced. It has all the fact of your life, from the day that you were conceived until now. Computing all that information and giving you the answer that you require....

Drinking, Smoking, Eating, Gambling – Each Is Temporary Relief

Smoking, Over Eating, Gambling, Drinking too much Alcohol Each is a Temporary relief for stress and anxiety This is a statement which is very relevant to the festive period. Also any other time when you are feeling stressed and anxious. You always pay for it later. It goes to the basic rule of cause and effect. The question WHY? Why do we over eat, over drink,  gamble excessively and smoke? I must point to the fact that all the above indulgences are perfectly OK in moderation. It’s the excess that’s the problem. In moderation it gives spice to life, some excitement, makes life worthwhile. It takes away the dullness and mundane periods of life. Temporary takes away the stress and anxiety. The age old saying “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”. It’s when you rely on the excesses of the above, where the problem is created. The over indulgence, the relief is tempory, you pay for it at a later date. I see it so many times in my therapy. Hopefully I catch them in time, before it has ruined their health, sometimes their relationships and can also be their career and their future. Back in the days of the sailing ships. The captain know the crew would get blind drunk and legless on the last night ashore, before they sailed the following day. The following day, before they set sailed the ship just anchored, did not sail till the following day. The captain knew the desires of the crew and the ports had all the facilities to provide for those needs and to excess. The crew...

Addicted to Excess Alcohol, Gambling or Smoking?

Time to make a change to your life and take away the Stress & Anxiety My pre Christmas blog. I pride myself that I talk to my clients in reality not morality.  I also say to my clients, you have never made a mistake.  They always look back in disbelief, as much as to say, what a stupid question!  I then say, you have had lessons and experiences. If you have done something and it has gone really ‘pearshaped’, you come out of it as a much wiser person.  Mistakes are the stepping stones to success.  Or should I reword it and say, experiences are the stepping stones to success. My clients come to me for help when their life has gone out of balance and they are out of control, they have become addicted. That creates Stress and Anxiety in their lives.  If someone is addicted to smoking, drinking alcohol and gambling and they are not harming anyone, I personally can’t see a problem.  They have the right to do that. This message I think is applicable, especially during the festive season. You are going to enjoy a few drinks, go to the races have a flutter, play the poker machines. It’s when it gets out of control and you become unbalanced, that you have a problem, then stress and anxiety is created.  Notice I left out the cigarettes, cigarettes are additive, you are either a smoker or a none smoker. I have witnessed on several occasions, a person has quit smoking, even after several years, they just have one cigarette, they are back in the trap. Smoking, usually starts...
