How to Develop Self-Confidence

In a world that is increasingly too fast paced and competitive to allow genuine, deep and lasting relationships and self-care, it really should not come as a shock that low self-confidence has become a pandemic. Over 80% of the world’s population is said to suffer from low self-esteem and a lack of self-confidence.

The world cannot continue to run well on individuals who have no confidence to be leaders and to stand up for what is right.

The good news is that there are not “confident people” and “un-confident people,” as though it were a genetic trait you are stuck with. If you, like the majority of people in the world, struggle with a lack of self-confidence, know that you don’t have to struggle with it forever. You can achieve healthy self-confidence.

In this post, I will explain the importance of self-confidence and provide practical tips on how to develop self-confidence and positive attitude so that you can begin moving forward toward a more confident and effective you.

Let’s Clarify

First, it is important to understand what is meant by “self-confidence.”

Unfortunately, many assume that self-confidence is just arrogance or narcissism. For many suffering from low self-worth and confidence, this thought pattern can actually be a part of what holds them back from trying to change their outlook on themselves – they do not want to be “arrogant” and so don’t pursue a better view of themselves.

However, there is healthy self-confidence that is neither arrogant nor narcissistic, and it is vitally important for individuals to develop.

How to Develop Self-Confidence

So, if you are wondering “how can I be confident in myself,” be encouraged and know that it IS possible. It will take a little time, but be patient with yourself and after a while you will start noticing a difference.

So, if you are ready for a more confident you, try following these self-confidence tips:

  1. Change your thought patterns. That battle for self-confidence is won or lost in the mind. Negative thoughts, such as “I can’t do this,” “I’m just going to fail again,” “I don’t have anything valuable to say” tear down your confidence and prevent you from even trying.To change your negative thoughts into positive ones, first start identifying and calling out negative thoughts as soon as they occur. Second, replace the negative thought. Change the “I’ll never be able to do this” to “If I work really hard, I think I can do this.” When you think about something you can’t do, or something you don’t like about yourself, change it by thinking about something you can do or something about your personality that is positive.
  2. Create a gratitude list. One of the best ways to start changing your mindset is by focusing on the good things that you do have in your life, instead of all of the seemingly bad or lacking things.Each day, spend time writing down good things that happened to you, things that you have that you are thankful for, and things that you did or felt that day that you can feel good about. Big or small, write them down.
  3. Take care of yourself. How we treat our bodies translates into how we think about ourselves.Taking a shower each day, brushing your teeth, combing and fixing your hair, wearing nice clothes that fit you well, and being able to take pride in your appearance will all contribute to making your feel better and more confident about yourself.Self-care is a way of telling yourself that you are worth the time and attention and that you’re allowed to feel confident about how you look.
  4. Give yourself permission to make mistakes. If you strive for perfection, you will easily fail and/or keep yourself from even setting goals or trying new things. If your expectation is perfection, then you could easily think “Why even try – I won’t be able to do it right” or “Why do I always screw up.”No one is perfect. The most successful individuals in our world made huge mistakes on their journey to success. Failure, when handled with the right attitude, can actually be responsible for future success.So set reasonable, small goals for yourself that you can achieve one at a time, but then be ok when you make a mistake or something doesn’t go right. Instead of beating yourself up about a mistake, focus on how you can change your approach next time.
  5. Stop comparing yourself to others. With things like social media, we often only see the best and greatest successes of our friends, and we often have a “grass is always greener” approach when looking at everyone else.This can make you feel like a failure or like you’re not doing things right. But this is not true, as every single person has ups and downs and struggles.But what other people are doing or not doing is irrelevant. Focus on YOUR goals, what matters to YOU (if you don’t know what these are, spend some time pondering it and writing your thoughts down). Then strive for those goals and be satisfied with what you have decided matters most.

Next Steps

If you feel like you may need help retraining your thoughts and learning how to develop self-confidence while speaking or just in general, consider seeking professional assistance.

Help for Low Self-Esteem

More than 80% of the world’s population wrestles with low self-esteem and self-confidence.

Perhaps it is the nature of our ever increasing fast-paced living, increasing tech-induced disconnection from genuine, healthy relationships, highly competitive work lives, or social media convincing us that everyone’s lives are perfect except ours – whatever the reasons, low self-esteem now seems like an epidemic.

The good news is, if you are one of the majority of individuals suffering from low self-esteem, it doesn’t have to stay that way.

Identifying the Problem

First, what is low self esteem?

Low self-esteem is having a poor opinion of yourself. People suffering from low self-esteem often experience feelings of dislike and even disgust with themselves, often struggling with habits, behaviors, and attitudes that they do not like but feel hopeless to change.

Individuals with low self-esteem feel like the world is against them, that no one likes them, and that things will always go wrong. They tend to see themselves as victims of bad luck and a hostile world, and are convinced that nothing will ever change.

As a result, individuals with low self-esteem shy away from sharing their thoughts, trying new things, and joining in activities. They tend to be very needy, always seeking the approval and affirmation of those around them, yet when receiving it, are likely to scoff at it or disbelieve its sincerity.

This failure to participate and thrive in a social environments and life in general then feeds their low self-esteem and creates a vicious, downward cycle.

Clearly, this is not a healthy way to live and it hurts everyone. Low self-esteem in relationships, regardless of what type, can make the relationship feel like a burden, can lead to fights and complications over the smallest issues, and can ultimately sabotage and destroy the relationship all together.

If any of these habits or attitudes sound familiar, you may be struggling with low self-esteem. If you suspect you do, you can take a self confidence test to help you assess where you are.

If you do struggle with low self-esteem, there is hope! You can learn how to overcome low self-esteem!

Improving Self-Esteem

Improving self-esteem is an ongoing process and a constant check on your thoughts and attitudes. As you learn how to build self-esteem, just keep in mind that these new steps and habits need to become a way of life and are not just a quick, one-time fix. And be patient with yourself!

Now, here are a few tips on how to improve self-esteem:

  1. Say “no” to the negative voice in your head. We are our own worst critics and enemies, and the battle for self-esteem starts with our own thoughts about ourselves.When your inner critic begins saying destructive things, like: “You’re lazy,” “You’re too ugly to be with your partner / to get a partner,” “They’re going to find someone better at this job,” etc., it’s time to tell it “No.” You don’t have to listen to it. In fact, choose a word or phrase to say back to that voice to get it to stop. Then, replace the destructive thoughts with positive ones or helpful ones, or by refocusing your attention on something else that is good.
  2. Spend a little time affirming yourself each day. Each day, write down at least two or three things that you like about yourself or about what you did that day.It can be something small, like “I kept a positive attitude during a stressful moment at work today” or “I said something nice to my spouse.” Find something about yourself to be pleased with every day.
  3. Reject perfectionism. When you have the unrealistic expectations of perfection in tasks or relationships, you set yourself up for failure. You will either be too afraid to try something new, because you will tell yourself there is no way you can achieve it to your expectation, or you will attempt it, fail to reach perfection, and then beat yourself up for it.Nothing and no one is perfect. Do not set that as your goal and don’t beat yourself up for missing it. Instead, identify what is most important to achieve in the task or relationship, set a standard for what is sufficient, and aim for that.
  4. Look at mistakes and failures as opportunities. Beating yourself up for mistakes does not prevent you from making them again – it actually increases the likelihood that you will continue to make the same mistake. Instead, like with perfectionism, realize that everyone makes mistakes and fail at times. The greatest world leaders, inventors, authors, etc. all have massive failures and mistakes in their past. The difference is, they chose to learn from them, grow, pick themselves back up and try again.Next time you make a mistake or experience failure, don’t give in to abusing yourself for it. Admit it, then ask yourself what you should do differently next time to avoid making the same mistake again.
  5. Take care of yourself. The way you treat your body reflects how you feel about yourself. If you neglect showering and basic hygiene, if you always look sloppy and disheveled, it gives your inner critic ammunition and you will like make yourself feel bad about it.Take those daily showers, brush your teeth, fix your hair, put on clothes that fit you and make you feel good. Taking care of yourself reminds you that you are worth the time it takes to care for your body, and tells you that you can feel better about how you look.

If you struggle with low self-esteem but feel like you need help getting a start on changing your outlook, there are many methods that can help, including hypnotherapy and seeing a behaviour therapist.

Common Mistakes When Trying to Lose Weight fast

Obesity has become an increasing problem in our fast-paced world that often keeps us too busy to fix and enjoy healthy foods and lifestyles. Lose weight fast is no easy task. It requires changing our habits and routines and is not about one quick fix.

If we want to be successful at losing weight and maintaining a healthy weight, we must persevere in changing patterns regarding what and when we eat as well as our physical activity.

Often times, though, it is not only what we eat and what we do for exercise that impacts our success or failure to lose weight – it is also what we think and believe. So many people meet defeat in their minds long before their new diet or exercise regime fails. Then, when the fad diet or exercise plan of choice does fail (or we fail at it), it drops us deeper into self-defeating attitudes.

Losing weight fast for women is especially difficult. It is so easy for women especially to suffer from poor self-image and confidence based on their repeated struggles to lose weight. But self-defeating attitudes, poor self-esteem, and bad expectations or misguided beliefs can all sabotage our best attempts to achieve fast weight loss.

If you are struggling with unwanted weight gain and are looking for ways to lose weight, keep reading. I’ll first address many of the mistakes people make when they do try to lose weight, many of them based in wrong assumptions or bad attitudes. Then I’ll discuss methods of how to lose weight fast and easy and keep it off.

Finally, consider how cognitive behaviour hypnotherapy as part of your weight management program may benefit you and give you the jump start and motivation to lose weight.

Mistakes to Avoid When Trying to Lose Weight

Unfortunately, there are many weight loss myths and attitude out there that many of us believe, but which unfortunately are likely to have the opposite of what we’d hoped.

Here are some common mistakes to avoid when you are trying to lose weight and develop a healthy self-image:

  • Weighing every day: This is one of the least helpful and mentally discouraging habits you could have while trying to lose weight. Remember that our body weight fluctuates by up to 4lbs on a given day.
    Also remember that muscle weighs more than fat, so if you are exercising, the scale may not show the difference, but your clothes and profile certainly will. Do yourself a favour and avoid the scale except for occasional check-ins (maybe once a month).
  • Obsessing over calorie count: Food and healthy eating habits are more than calorie counting. Furthermore, even if you are consuming low calories, if you are not exercising, you may still not be burning more than you eat. But if you are exercising with a low-calorie diet, the lack of sufficient calories could lead to muscle loss and a slowing down of your metabolism.
  • Not exercising: Like it or not, exercising is necessary for a truly healthy body, and proper exercise is going to go a long way in helping you lose fat and excess weight. Additionally, because you can lose muscle mass as well as fat during weight loss, the best way to ensure that you keep muscle is by exercising. Of course, you can go to the other extreme and exercise too much, which could lead to potential stress and injury to your body. The biggest thing to remember is a healthy balance.
  • Overestimating exercise: Many people make the mistake of assuming that if they run (or exercise) for 30 minutes a day, it will burn off whatever unhealthy food they decide to consume that day. This simply isn’t true. What takes seconds to consume can take over an hour to burn off. You need to make healthy eating choices and exercise, not one or the other.
  • Diet foods: This is a tricky one. So many foods advertise themselves as diet or “natural,” but many of these products replace calories with sugar to help them taste better. This ends up being just as unhealthy and contributing to weight gain anyway. Additionally, while many of these foods may contain fewer calories up front, they leave you hungrier and more likely to overeat later.

Steps to Take to Start Losing Weight Fast

Successful weight loss is often much simpler than we want to make it. Often, the following simple steps can go a long way to starting you on a successful weight loss journey:

  • Stay positive: Do not allow negative thoughts and self-defeating attitude to creep in. When your inner critic tells you “I can’t do this” or “I’ll just quit again,” tell it to stop. Think about all of the positive long-term benefits and pleasures you will be able to enjoy by succeeding and tell yourself you can do it one small step at a time.
  • Keep it simple: Don’t over-complicate the process with difficult meal plans and exercise routines that take hours a day. Start small and keep it simple. Choose whole foods over processed foods when you can, eat when you feel hungry but eat smaller portions and stop when you are full.
  • Set realistic goals: Don’t start by trying to accomplish what you envision is the perfect, ideal diet and exercise routine. If you haven’t been disciplined in your eating or exercising habits before, jumping from nothing to body-builder plan will result in defeat. Set realistic goals, implementing just a couple of small changes at a time. Start with steps you know you can accomplish to build your confidence and momentum.

I love helping clients accomplish their weight loss goals and helping them see it can be much easier and simpler than they thought. Please give me a call today to learn more about how hypnotherapy can help you accomplish your weight loss goals.

Tips for dealing with anxiety and stress

 

The number of people suffering from anxiety and depression has unfortunately sky-rocketed even in just the last ten years, as they lack anxiety coping skills (tips for dealing with anxiety).

World events, ever-increasing demands to live fast-paced, non-stop lives, social media tends to make people compare their lives to others, times of recession – all of these and more are likely culprits for why so many individuals now find themselves wrestling with the beast of anxiety. So, how to deal with anxiety and stress?

But there is hope and there are methods you can begin right now to help you cope with anxiety when it comes. If you want to know how to control anxiety attacks and how to get rid of anxiety naturally, keep reading as we review simple tips you can do at home.

Then whether you want to find success and not using the anxiety self-help tips for dealing with anxiety without medication, you should still consider talking with a therapist to help ensure a proper foundation for staying mentally healthy and strong.

As a qualified clinical hypnotherapist and cognitive behaviour therapist, I have helped many people learn how to deal with anxiety attacks even without the use of medication. You can schedule your free 30-minute session with me to discover how hypnotherapy could help you learn how to overcome anxiety and depression in your life.

How to Overcome Anxiety and Fear

For those who wish to avoid the often potentially harmful depression and anxiety medications, there are options. Many have found themselves capable of dealing with anxiety without medication when they practice some of these mental exercises and habits (anxiety coping skills list).

Try one or all to see which ones help you overcome your anxiety:

  • Exercise: physical exercise has incredible physical AND mental health benefits. When you exercise, the brain releases chemicals and hormones that cause relaxation and feelings of well-being and happiness. Physical exercise also decreases stress hormones and helps the body get rid of toxins that could be contributing to an overall sense of poor physical and emotional health.
  • Self-soothe: when you feel anxiety coming on, learn methods to soothe and calm yourself down, such as:
    • Remind yourself that you will be okay and that this anxiety will pass – it won’t stick around indefinitely
    • Practice deep breathing and count as you breathe. The action of deep breathing does actually soothe the brain and counting will distract your thoughts from dwelling on your fears
    • If someone came to you about fears or anxiety, odds are you could think up a couple of phrases of encouragement and comfort. Do the same for yourself, instead of feeding your anxiety with negative thoughts.
  • Avoid anxiety-inducing foods and substances: unfortunately, there are many substances in the average diet that can instigate or contribute to anxiety. These include caffeine and alcohol. Caffeine is contained in foods and drink such as coffee, sodas, tea, chocolate, etc. and can trigger panic attacks, trembling and shaking. Having a healthy diet, in general, will also contribute to a healthy gut, which studies have discovered is very important for mental health. So try cleaning up your diet in multiple areas.
  • Journal: many times, keeping our fears and anxieties in our heads causes them to perpetuate and keep us from being able to move on. But when we write things down, our minds tend to relax and allow them to be let go more easily. To that end, start a journal where you write out your fears and anxieties. This will help your mind to stop fixating on them and could also help the more logical part of your brain see that these fears are often unwarranted. Also, keep a journal for positive things or a gratitude journal. Spend time every day writing about good things that happened and that you are thankful for.
  • Distract: while an anxiety attack often makes us want to be alone, that is actually the least helpful thing, as it gives us room to fixate and be consumed by our fears. Instead, distract yourself. If you can, go out with friends, go to that event you had planned, or even turn on a comedian’s podcast or show. Do something that distracts and redirects your thoughts.

It is OK to Seek Help

While there are many methods to controlling your anxiety at home, if you are struggling to figure out how to deal with anxiety attacks and fear in your life, there is no shame in seeking professional help.

Treat Infertility

Are you struggling to get pregnant due to fertility issues?

Hypnotherapy can improve your chances of a natural conception.

If you are exploring the use of hypnosis to treat infertility issues, it’s likely that you’ve tried a number of methods to become pregnant. With each set back I suspect you will be feeling more stressed, anxious and negative about your chances of conceiving: and being told to ‘relax’ is the last thing you need. However, negative thoughts, emotions and behaviours can affect your fertility and create an environment in your uterus that can be hostile for a body to get pregnant. Here is where hypnotherapy for fertility can help.

Hypnotherapy helps let go of limiting or unhealthy beliefs that disturb the natural balance in the body. It reduces stress and anxiety, which greatly affects your hormonal balance. This method uses relaxation techniques to also improve IVF success rates.

Annabelle

I was feeling nervous at the prospect of undergoing IVF. I had struggled to conceive for a number of years and IVF seemed like our only option left. I was anxious that if IVF might not work. I was feeling anxious about the IVF treatment and how it would effect me both emotionally and physically and I was also skeptical about IVF working! With Andrea’s help and positive attitude, I was able to find some coping strategies and I became less skeptical and more positive about the whole experience.

Sharon R.

I had been struggling for 3 years with infertility. After 3 failed IVF’s, I came to a realisation: while doctors played an important role in providing the technical means to get pregnant, they were not getting me any closer to my dream. The doctors had no idea why I could not fall pregnant. With Andrea’s help, I was able to gain useful insight into my issues, to feel confident during an otherwise uncertain time. I am 2 months pregnant and am positive that Andrea help me.

Maya B.

I was 33 and I have always wanted children and had been trying to have a baby for 3 ½ years. I'd had one miscarriage from a spontaneous pregnancy. I did some research, came across Andrea and decided to go along to see her and see how I could fall pregnant. The pervasive message I'd received was that my body was broken and I couldn’t get pregnant. Andrea and I worked through changing that belief And sure enough, two weeks later, the doctor called with the news that I was pregnant!

The use of hypnosis during embryo transfer doubles the IVF/ET outcome in terms of increased implantation and clinical pregnancy rates. 

For further information about the positive impact of hypnosis on IVF success rates, you can view an actual study here - The impact of hypnosis during embryo transfer on the outcome of in vitro fertilization-embryo transfer: a case-control study.

Overcome Phobias & Fears

Are irrational fears standing between you and a better life?

You can choose the life you live.

Phobia is irrational fear, or extreme aversion to something. People with phobias feel extremely distressed or terrified over a different number of things, and it often manifests physically as sweating, difficulty breathing, trembling, etc.

Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) uses exposure therapy and systematic desentisation. It involves restructuring the way you think and feel about the thing that causes you to feel overwhelmed with fear.

Matthew Samson

I had an unusual problem of having a fear of speaking professionally. I have been speaking and presenting professionally but suddenly there was this fear and a phobia being in front of a crowd. I was VERY skeptical before our session as I have zero tolerance for "all things woo," but Andrea came very highly-recommended from a colleague, so I gave it a go. And now I'm a raving fan and hope my testimonial gets her more business from you reading it. Hope this helps you with your "head challenge."

Ruth Beresford

I have had a fear of flying for at least 14 years becoming progressively worse. I would experience shaking, palpitations ad often cry with fear. I had no idea what hypnosis entailed and was surprised to be fully awake and aware of everything happening but was deeply relaxed. I was shown a breathing technique which from day one I practiced. I had a 4hour flight a few weeks ago and unbelievably I had no pre-flight nerves. I am so grateful to Andrea. I wish I had done this years ago. 

Victoria

I used to be so scared of spiders before that my husband had to check our house in the spring for spiders before I could enter the room. My fear was all consuming and over took all our activities and even effected our holiday plans. I would have a full blown anxiety, panic attack and my reactions would make me really ill. I am now with ease and calm, feeling happy and not afraid even though there is an increased spider population. Give Andrea a call for your phobia disorder treatment. I feel so much better now!

These are some phobias that I've helped clients overcome:

  • Fear of insects
  • Fear of heights
  • Fear of enclosed spaces
  • Fear of being alone
  • Fear of the dark
  • Fear of flying
  • ...plus many others

Manage Stress & Anxiety

Living with stress, anxiety, panic attacks, fear and helplessness?

Liberate yourself with hypnotherapy.

I believe that people who want to live a fulfilling and joyous life MUST become a master of their own mind and thought processes.


How can individuals find time to do this when there is so much negativity in the news, we are working longer and harder than ever before, and anxiety and stress levels are at an all time high? Over the last decade the number of people struggling with anxiety, negativity, fears, panic attacks, stress and depression has risen. Visits to doctors and therapists have also increased. When faced with certain situations such as bereavement, family issues, a difficult relationship, financial worries or pressures at work, our body launches a natural fight or flight response which often manifests as stress, anxiety, sleeplessness, panic attacks, or overwhelming fear. This is our body reacting to real or imagined danger.

In my experience, both as a Registered Nurse and as someone who frequently works with individuals suffering from anxiety and depression, I have found that the right tools and resources can help overcome anxiety. You don't have to struggle with it everyday. You CAN live a fulfilling and happy life. Hypnotherapy combined with Cognitive Behaviour Therapy can help you deal with these physical reactions. It will help you change your perspective and successfully manage these reactions, resulting in a more relaxed outlook, better sleep patterns, and a generally improved well-being.

Try my FREE 7-day Negativity Cleanse Challenge, and learn techniques that are proven to overcome anxiety and reduce negative thoughts with an 85% success rate.

​Adam Higgins

I am in my teens and about to move on to being a person of our society. Prior to visiting Andrea I was hardly outgoing and became stressed at the thought of meeting new people, I was even becoming unsocial towards my friends. Andrea believes in your best interests at all times. Her simple yet professional approach is what I believe enhances the outcome of the process. I have not long finished my sessions and already I feel a better person, someone who is confident to meet new faces and ensure new experiences. The help from Andrea couldn’t have come at a more vital phase in my life.

​Damian

After a series of debilitating traumas, I came to Andrea very distressed; unable to speak clearly and barely able to function properly. She calmly addressed my heightened emotional state immediately, enabling adrenalin to subside and issues to clear progressively throughout the course of the sessions. Her incisive comments provided support and perspective at both the difficult moments and the triumphant. Her generosity of spirit and pragmatic approach has allowed me to look beyond the effects of grief and the unkindness of others and to perceive a future without sadness and fear.

​Catherine Clark

I have suffered from depression for many years and have seen lots of different therapists - none of them seemed to really understand me or connect with me. I was originally not keen to open up to yet another therapist and I was also very skeptical about being hypnotised. Andrea immediately made me feel at ease and was very clear about what she was going to do. I took a deep breath and never looked back! With her experience and knowledge Andrea was able to steer me through my depression and anxiety and gave me techniques to help cope with any future attacks.

These subtle symptoms may become chronic and lead to illness or depression if ignored:

  • Feeling tense, irritable or unable to relax
  • Constant knots or butterflies in your stomach
  • A feeling of overwhelm or a heavy heart
  • Mind racing with random, disorganised thoughts

Lose Weight

Tried all sorts of diets but still unable to lose weight?

Enjoy the food you love and keep the weight off with hypnotherapy.

If you have found that diets don’t work, that losing weight is a rollercoaster of negative emotions, and that your hard work hasn’t paid off, you’ll wish that you had discovered hypnosis for weight loss sooner! 

Combining Cognitive Behaviour Therapy with hypnotherapy is a powerful formula for delivering excellent results. It will help you identify the real barriers to you losing weight and set out a clear pathway that will work for you, to lose those excess pounds and then keep them off. This is not a one size fits all solution. It’s about discovering the right solution for you.

Kath T

I had been suffering for years with yoyo weight issues. I would go from one diet to another, lose the weight but put it back on again after a few months. I had no idea of how hypnotherapy would work for me but am so relieved I found Andrea. I am a more confident person, I have lost weight now and kept it of for 6 months. I am able to live my life to the fullest now and my outlook is so much more positive. My friends and family say that I am a completely different person. 

Diane Marelli

I don’t know how to thank you for helping me achieve positivity after a quite a few years of grief followed by serious health issues within my close family. I felt unhappy with myself and came to you for weight loss. I thought by being slimmer I would be happy. Well I am losing weight but not because of diet but because you helped overcome other issues I had not allowed myself to deal with. However, our sessions produced an amazing result which has allowed me to face the reality of my weight gain. 

Alexander Werner

Andrea not only cured my IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) she helped me with my eating habits, especially my overeating issues. Hypnotherapy really helped me begin a path of self-love and self-acceptance. I was able to achieve my weight loss goals and stick to a healthy eating plan. I am doing things like getting into clothes that did not fit for a long long time, going to a Zumba class and go for adventurous walks with my friends. Andrea is such a light and I am blessed to know her.

Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss will help you to:

  • Identify those damaging eating patterns, so that you can lose pounds, yet still enjoy the food you love.
  • Be mindful of everything you put into your mouth (good or bad), so you can develop healthier eating habits.

  • Persist with the small changes you have made, so you can get to your weight loss goals, faster and easier.

Quit Smoking

Are you desperate to quit smoking?

85% of my clients report that they are still smoke-free after 3 months

Many people try to quit smoking unsuccessfully, or they manage to stop using other smoking cessation methods but start again because their smoking habits and behaviours have not been addressed.

This is why hypnotherapy combined with Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is so successful. It addresses the trigger points, the emotions, and the entrenched behaviours that make it so difficult to quit. It’s not about replacing smoking with something else like nicotine replacement products. It’s about replacing smoking with a whole new healthier lifestyle without cravings, weight gain or stress.

After 40 years smoking up to 30 a day I was truly hooked and had never wanted to give up – enjoyed it too much! One day I realised that I needed to quit smoking but knew my only hope was going to be through hypnotherapy. I searched the Internet and found Andrea. After one session in July I threw away 41 cigarettes and know I’ll never smoke again. I had 3 further sessions, which were really valuable. I’m never going to look back – I am a non-smoker, thanks to Andrea.

After 3 sessions I have successfully quit smoking cigarettes after 27 years. Through the smoking cessation hypnotherapy and CBT that Andrea specialises in, I have effective hypno coping strategies in place for the difficult moments and situations that inevitably arise. I feel confident and refer myself now as a non-smoker, which was something I would have never ever contemplated in the past. You have to want to quit smoking but when you are  ready this is the best way to stop smoking.

Just three sessions with Andrea changed my perspective completely and I was able to see the benefits of not smoking. Hypnotherapy is the easiest way to quit smoking. I was worried I would put on huge amounts of weight too, but Andrea made me see how positive a change this was and focused my mind on making myself fitter, healthier and ultimately happier. So not only I have I not gained weight, I have actually lost weight. Hurrah! Thank you very much and if I were you I would get help to stop smoking xx

6 Key Benefits of Quitting Smoking

  • Health: Reduces your risk of serious diseases such as cardiovascular disease, lung cancer and cancers of the throat and mouth. Boosts your immune systems so you can fight colds and flu more effectively.
  • Fitness: Better circulation makes physical activity easier and improves your all round fitness.
  • Finances: More money to spend or save as you want. If you smoke 10 cigarettes a day (with a typical packet of 20 costing almost £10) that's around £1,750 a year!
  • Fertility: Reduces infertility, miscarriage and pregnancy complications. Most importantly quitting smoking will increase your chances of having a healthy baby.
  • Appearance: Better skin including reduced wrinkles and a healthier complexion. Your breath smells sweet and you’ll also be able to smell and taste things better.
