Most smokers pick up the habit as young teens and keep it up for decades. But it doesn't matter how long and how many you've been smoking, you can stop now.The most comprehensive study into methods of quitting, reported in New Scientist Magazine, found that "hypnotherapy enjoys a greater success rate than any other method in helping people stop smoking."It beats nicotine replacement therapy simply because if nicotine were the real issue, you could just wean yourself off. Smoke one fewer cigarette per day and you'd be smoke-free in 3 weeks. Doesn't really work that way, does it?With hypnotherapy, we look at your habits, your triggers, your motivations and your needs to maximise your chances to stop smoking easily there and then.Call now to discuss how I can help you become a natural non-smoker again. #hypnosis #hypnotherapy #stopsmoking #chooselife #regaincontrol ...

Anxiety and depression affect your way of thinking. Catastrophising everything, continuous "what-if" thoughts and worse case scenarios are very common. Remember to fact-check what pops to mind. Just because you think it, just because it "feels" correct, it doesn't mean it is.#overcomeanxiety #regaincontrol ...

Don't ignore the signs. Often people wait until it's too late instead of looking after themselves. I know, I've been there too, thinking "I don't have time, there are things that need doing" or "I'll rest later, I can't possibly stop right now"... until your body and brain gives you no choice...

What comes to mind when you think mental health? It’s all in your head, isn’t it? 🤔Well, no. Your brain controls your whole body, so anything affecting your brain has the potential to affect everything else! Mental health is part of physical health, not a separate thing. If you leave your anxiety disorder untreated, it will have consequences on your body. Here are a few examples:🤧 Respiratory Problems An anxious person’s breathing is generally short, shallow and rapid. This leads to inefficient unhealthy breathing that can make conditions such as asthma and COPD worse. 🤢 Gastrointestinal Disorders Chronic anxiety and worry can lead to chronic digestion problems, such as stomach pains, bloating or cramping, diarrhoea, irritable bowel syndrome, vomiting, etc.💊 Immune system High levels of anxiety prevent your body from returning to its normal rested state, weakening your immune system and leaving you more vulnerable to illness and viral infections.💔 Heart Disease Heart palpitations are a common symptom of anxiety. Chronic anxiety may also cause high blood pressure and coronary problems such as heart disease or heart attack.💪 Muscle Tension and Chronic Pain Anxiety causes your body to constantly tense up. That constant muscle tension can lead to cramps, stiffness, and aches and pains, tension headaches and migraines, etc. This may also result in chronic pain conditions such as joint pains or fibromyalgia.The good news is that you can regain control over your anxiety. Give us a call now. ...

Imagine being free from having to light up. 🙌 Imagine having more energy, more money and being healthier. 💪Many smokers believe it is difficult and painful to quit, some having tried many times before. I know, I've been there too.If you go "cold-turkey", your chances of stopping are about 4%. With patches, that average goes up to 19% (1), still a 81% failure rate...But according to a study from the American College of Chest Physicians in 2007 (2), 50% of smoking patients who participated in one (yes, just ONE!) hypnotherapy session were still non-smokers 6 months later. To make those odds higher, I only work with people who genuinely want to stop smoking, not because they’ve been nagged into it or just want to give it a try. It’s teamwork. I also include a booster session within 4 weeks to increase those odds further.If you want to be free from tobacco in 2021, just give me a shout.(1) pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/8518571/(2) www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2007/10/071022124741.htm ...

Folkestone Hypnotherapy is still open! 👍There was initially a level of uncertainty and confusion about what we can and cannot do in this new tier 4, but I've had confirmation by the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council that CNHC registrants meet the definition of “other…health services, including services relating to mental health” contained in Section 17(o) of the new Health Protection legislation (www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2020/1374/schedule/3A). That means that if necessary, I can still have sessions face-to-face albeit in a limited fashion and with protective measures in place.That said, the various lockdowns we've experienced have also proven that hypnotherapy works very well using online tools such as Zoom Meetings. Also, no travelling, no worries about parking and you can do it from the comfort of your own home! Even if you're not good with tech, Zoom is super easy to use from a smartphone, tablet or computer (www.folkestone-hypnotherapy.co.uk/zoom/).So if you have issues with anxiety, depression, bad habits, smoking or phobias, remember that you don't have to put up with it.Give me a call to discuss how I can best help you, even between Christmas and New Year.Take care. ...

Don't do that!Stress, anxiety and depression can affect EVERYBODY. No matter how strong you think you are, it's always good to open up, talk about it and get some help. Hypnotherapy is a fantastic tool to help you regain control over your anxiety and your stress response. If things are getting too much, give me a call.

When you suffer from mental health condition, it will affect all aspects of your life. A common aspect that people are reluctant to address is work. Maybe you're worried you'll be judged, or being perceived as weak or incompetent. 👉Just remember: 1 in 4 people in the UK will have a mental health problem at some point. You are not the only one.Whether work is causing the health issue or aggravating it, employers have a legal responsibility to help their employees.Inform yourself about your rights and take positive action to make your workplace more bearable. If your managers don't know, they can't help you. More often than not, they will be keen to help. If they're not, well, they still have legal obligations.The main thing is, don't suffer in silence. You might be surprised how much of a difference opening up can make.Read more here:www.hse.gov.uk/stress/mental-health-employees.htm ...
