…Be the best you can, start today with hypnotherapy
Hypnotherapy is becoming an increasingly credible solution to many problems, with more and more research becoming available that shows just how effective it really is. The largest ever study into methods to quit smoking, which involved 6000 smokers and was published in New Scientist Magazine showed that hypnotherapy is by far the most effective way to quit smoking. Research in Israel showed the success rate of IVF treatments doubled when combined with hypnosis. In the past couple of years, media attention on the benefits of hypnotherapy has increased both in the press and on television.
Originally from a business background, during which he attended NLP based sales courses, Gary trained in Hypnotherapy, NLP and Life Coaching with Robin Oxley at British Ethical School of Therapies, as well as furthering his professional development with a number of different training organisations.
Gary is a member of the British Institute of Hypnotherapy, the General Hypnotherapy Register and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council and holds diplomas in Hypnotherapy and Stress Management, Advanced Hypnotherapy, Complete Mind Therapy, NLP, Life Coaching, EFT for Addiction Treatment, Master Practitioner In Applied Clinical Hypnotherapy and the Senior Qualification in Hypnotherapy Practice.
Gary has since returned to British Ethical School of Therapies as a tutor. From his success with one of his corporate contracts working with actors for performance and confidence, in 2009 Gary was chosen to work with Duncan Bannatyne’s team of experts for an episode of the Virgin Television series “Duncan Bannatyne’s Seaside Rescue”. Gary also works with professional athletes, particularly in fight sports such as boxing, Muay Thai, and Mixed Martial Arts.
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnosis is a naturally occurring phenomenon used widely throughout the world by many doctors, dentists, psychologists and psychotherapists. Often referred to as “trance” it is simply a mind skill – a way to communicate with the problem solving part of the human mind. If you think of trance as a mystical control state, where the recipient is unconscious, asleep or has had their mind “taken over”, you would be absolutely wrong – there is no truth in this whatsoever. When used with psychotherapeutic techniques and suggestion, hypnosis can be a very effective form of treatment in the management of many disorders, both physical and psychological.
Hypnosis can best be described as a state of profound physical and mental relaxation, during which we become inwardly focused, aware of our immediate reality but with a comfortable sense of detachment.
Without realising it, you already experience everyday trance states, for example daydreaming. When we daydream we become inwardly focused, completely involved in some memory or imaginary experience, even to the point of not being aware of someone talking to us – we become detached from the external world. Another example is having driven a car on a journey which you have covered many times before to find that when you arrive at your destination, you have no memory of a part or parts of the journey, reading a book, listening to music and watching television are all trance states where you become so involved with what you are doing that you don’t notice how time has slipped by or how deeply you have relaxed.
There are, of course, many similarities between these familiar trances and formal trance. In formal trance, the hypnotherapist will assist you to, as it were, “tune in” to this unique ability and help you use it in a far more focused and structured way. With the correct therapeutic approach it is possible to directly influence the unconscious mind, gaining access to part of our vast learning experience, searching for resources that we seldom believe we have and discovering change sometimes in a dramatic way
