Daydreaming is always a good idea..

I’m sitting here with half an hour between clients, with ideas and thoughts whizzing around. You know the thing – contemplating the conversation I’ve just had and looking forward to the next one. Thinking about sleep, and trance. Listening to the sound of the…

Decisions, decisions

Isn’t it great to have choice? Choose what to eat for breakfast, what to wear, who to call today? Or big things like applying for a job, choosing where to live. Exciting, huh? Then again… if you’re anxious, choice can seem overwhelming. What if…

Stoptober – who’s in?

It’s STOPTOBER! (well, almost) “Can I really stop smoking with hypnotherapy?” Yes you can. If you have decided that you really want to stop, hypnotherapy can be the final piece of the jigsaw that actually makes it happen! It take just one, two hour…
