If I only had time......

Time is the ultimate finite resource. You are given only a certain amount of it to spend in your life, and you never know how much you have been given. The only certainty is that you can only spend that time once. There are no refunds. Perhaps now is the time to consider a budget for your time, so that you get the best value for your investment.

We are living in an age of time poverty. Despite the technological advances of recent decades, people find that the amount of discretionary time available to them seems to be under ever increasing pressure. This is without doubt one of the commonest causes of stress that I deal with every day as a therapist and coach. It seems everyone is making demands on our time – the boss, the kids, the parents, friends, e-mail, and even Facebook. Finding the way to balance these demands is vital to reducing stress, getting things done, achieving goals, and finding that precious quality time to recharge the batteries!

Time management coaching gives you back the power to control your own life; your own time. You will learn simple techniques to manage the demands placed on you, so that you always feel in control. You will find yourself doing the things that are important – doing them in a planned way. This leaves plenty of flexibility to handle a crisis if it occurs – without ever feeling overwhelmed. It also makes time for the good stuff in life, enabling you to enjoy yourself without feeling guilty about what you think you “should” be doing.

You will also learn how to identify what is really important to you – your values in life. When you really understand your values and start living your life and managing your time around them you are on the fast track to happiness and fulfillment.

Weight loss

If you're considering shedding a few pounds for a special event, or maybe just thinking about how you'll look in those slightly less forgiving summer clothes, don't waste your time, energy and money on any of the diet programmes being touted in the popular press at this time of year. In any case, what is the point of losing weight just to gain it again later in the year? 

Rather than repeatedly dieting, why not change your relationship with food forever? If you are prepared to do that, to accept that you can survive and be happy on smaller portions and with taking more exercise then please look at my web site and find out how hypnotherapy and NLP can help you achieve that goal. If you just want a magic wand or a quick fix, move on!

Stopping smoking

Thinking of giving up the cigarettes? It's easier than you think.

When you smoke, it's not usually for a love of the taste or the smell of the cigarette. It's not even for the nicotine. You do it because it has become associated with a nice feeling of some sort, and that is what your “cravings” are actually for. Perhaps it’s relaxation, or just that self-indulgent "me" moment we all need from time to time, or maybe an excuse to escape work for a few minutes - but whatever it is, it feels good. Nicotine gum and patches don't let you keep that good feeling - hypnosis and NLP do. Imagine being able to feel that feeling just because you can, and then being able to access that good feeling instantly. There is no reason to smoke any more. That's what I teach - and it's surprisingly simple. 

Hypnosis is used to install this into the subconscious mind; the place where habits and other learned behaviours reside. The whole process takes about 90 minutes. The hypnotic part of the session, which is specific to you, is recorded and burned on to a CD for repeated listening over the next two weeks so the new habit is quickly put in place. You are now in control of your own feelings. There is no longer any need for a cigarette to achieve the feeling you were craving. It is easier and needs a lot less willpower than you think.
