BA Hons, PGCE, Dip C Hyp, HPD, NLPP Cognitive Hypnotherapist
Through 5 years of academic research, extensive travelling and working abroad, I have gained an in-depth knowledge about human development and cultural differences. I learnt how our perception of our environment and experiences are fundamental to who we are. Through life’s hardships I gained resources to help me cope, but somehow was not fully aware I had them or how to conjure them when they were needed. Questions like, ‘I stopped smoking in the past, why can’t I switch that behaviour on now?’ frustrated me.
When I discovered Cognitive Hypnotherapy I found my knowledge and passions were a perfect fit, this enabled me to convert my understandings into a sense of purpose and a tangible asset to help others. Through my training, I had many eureka moments. The times in life when I pondered ‘what’s that about?’ felt like seeds waiting to be germinated. It took a sprinkle of Cognitive Hypnotherapy to unlock the growth and start reaching for the sun. See my blog page for a few of my ‘pondering moments’.
I am now aware of my resourcefulness and feel incredibly proud that I had managed to work out so much of this on my own. In hindsight how amazing was that? But would I ever have had this realisation without Cognitive Hypnotherapy? – probably not. Verbalising and finding techniques that made these subconscious understandings concrete, tangible and useful has revolutionised my future. I now recognise when my subconscious is putting me in a situation of ‘stuckness’ and have the techniques I need to work myself out of a destructive trance.
Think big, think possibilities
The founder of Cognitive Hypnotherapy and ‘WordweavingTM’ (Trevor Silvester Quest Institute link) taught me to ‘be water’ in my therapy and never stop innovating. He taught me to ‘hold strong beliefs, weekly held, and step aside from myself in therapy and enter the client’s model of the world. This means I am never quite sure what will happen in therapy. It keeps it interesting and thought provoking and so rewarding when powerful shifts in behaviour become apparent.
