Stress is costing companies thousands of pounds in lost revenue and productivity, sick pay and benefits.
Are we spending on the right things? How much does a programme cost, what levels of support are there? Who is doing what?
If you are suffering from decreased profits due to absence, please do read this weeks blog.
This short excerpt was recorded on 8 July 2017 at my UK, Southampton office.
It is intended to provide an example of what you may hear during a hypnosis session. It is not a hypnosis inducing clip nor was it intended to be. It is best listened to with headphones.

Have you ever been to Starbuck's and ordered a drink? You know how they put you name on the cup and then when it is ready they shout your name? Well, in a recent post on LinkedIN it was suggested that this is similar to the training environment... This is the subject of this week's blog...
What is it that gets you down - simple little things like the washing machine every now and then going to Fault or perhaps you have to switch on the TV twice - you have the power to do something about these things before they become an issue...
Many people will go through their lives with a certain something hanging over them. This could be a fear of animals or maybe you drink or eat too much, perhaps you feel guilty, embarrassed or ashamed or even just too angry... There is an infinity of things which could be impacting on your life right now..
These things do not have to be a part of your life if you chose to let them go... Read more about positive change in this week's blog.
Do you dream of playing a better round of golf or is your football team looking to really take off into the future?
Read this week's blog to understand how a combination of coaching, hypnosis can unlock your potential and take your sport to new levels.
Having worked with a victim of stroke - Here is an article that I wrote from the Journal of the National Council for Hypnotherapy.
I hope that you find the article interesting and can begin to understand the power of the hypnotic process in action.
On 11th April 1993, Aryton Senna won the European F1 Grand Prix at the Donington Park circuit , England.
Senna was never meant to win this race. In a car which was technologically behind the curve, down on engine power and on a circuit that hadn't been raced before in Formula 1, he showed that he had something that was very special - belief.
There are so many people that worry about the world we live in. From wars in distant (and not so distant) lands to which celebrity has done what with who...
For some this type of worrying has become a way of life and their anxiety rises as they think and worry about every scenario...
When you realise that there is nothing you can do, you worry less and life becomes one for living.
A number of years ago I gave a presentation to new servicemen; it was part of an initiative designed to get the trainees thinking about their future Naval service and to inspire them to be the very best they could be. My presentation was based upon some observations I had across all levels of Naval personnel, from junior sailors all the way through to the officer corps.
This TED type talk was based upon their wishing their lives away...
Each year about 25 million people in the United Kingdom will consider making a New Year’s resolution. Why would we choose January 1st as the date to start? Why didn’t we start yesterday or even today? The truth is, no matter what the origin, people do like drawing a ‘line in the sand’ and having something to aim for. Yet potentially waiting till the start of the New Year could actually be sabotaging our efforts to make the changes that you actually desire. Out of those 25 million people it is only likely that only 2 million people, or 8%, will statistically achieve success.
Discovering that 39% of all work-related illnesses were due to stress and that 244,000 new cases of work-related stress were diagnosed last year I decided to see what the NHS reported about stress. They say that “anxiety, stress and depression are behind one in 5 visits to a GP” caused by work pressure, lack of support from managers and work-related violence and bullying.
Hypnotherapy can provide a quick, effective, positive result. In most cases you will see change and a difference in one top two sessions and you will get deeper insights into your own beliefs. I will work with you to support you through to normal life, like everyone else. I have helped many people regain confidence, eliminate sadness and the feeling of hopelessness following a relationship slit. Everything you say to me is in complete confidence.
As you will no doubt already be aware, Harley Street plays host to some of the most sought after private specialists in both medicine and surgery. As well as working in Southampton, I am also available by appointment in the city of London, perfectly positioned on Harley Street for anyone looking for an experienced and dedicated Hypnotherapist who cares about their clients and goes that extra mile to support them.
In the full article I explain a little bit about Harley Street, why you should come here, and a bit about my future here working as a Hypnotherapist. Please take the time to read what I have written and you will soon understand and value Harley Street as a centre of excellence and why so many people choose to come here for Hypnotherapy.
Everyone has differing levels of internal conscience and values, is this an article which is subconsciously asking for regulation in unregulated industries? Do we need the intervention of the law? Is selecting a therapy similar to that of "traditionally" selecting a tradesman? Whilst I am content that I am professional and do my CPD and have a great supervisor I would urge all members of the public to seek therapists that hold professional accreditation, insurance and that come with recommends. For everyone else, I urge you to reflect on your own business and ask:
"Am I doing things right? Would I happily buy goods/services from me?"
Dame Kelly Holmes was asked to undergo a course of hypnotherapy for her fear of water. She stated, like many clients, that she was a "bit skeptical" at first and thought of the therapist as someone who would wear a long black cloak, and would be wearing a top hat and be instantly hypnotising her on-sight by using energy coming from the pointed finger tips.
As with most clients, her fear was said to be extreme and the session took 2 hours. Afterwards, Dame Kelly Holmes actually went swimming because she “…felt she needed to try…” and successfully learnt how to front crawl and did a number of lengths. When asked to rate hypnotherapy she stated “… 10 out of 10, definitely!”
When my clients are in session with me, they sometimes ask "as a Hypnotherapist who specialism is in working with clients who have anxieties, do you actually know how I am feeling?"
This of course is a very relevant question - do I understand my clients condition and therefore their needs? Therefore, do I know how to treat them? You may feel like you are on your own and no-one understands... anxiety is, unfortunately, as wide spread as it is self-limiting and I have worked with so many people that I can say that I do understand your condition enough to support your journey through treatment to it's conclusion.
I would like to share Kady Morrisons story (licensed under creative commons - thank you Kady) about anxiety and her journey thus far.
For those who enjoy reading from the Kindle App or watching TV in bed, it would seem that exposure to the screen light is disrupting our natural body clock or "circadian rhythm".
This is because the "blue light" used in television, computer and tablet screens can be disruptive to sleep patterns more so than the traditional incandescent lighting.
Experts claim that be limiting the body's exposure to blue light could help with insomnia and other sleep issues.
