Is Stoptober 2015 a good starting point to quit smoking ?
Of course, as you wisely have made that first step to quit. Do you genuinely want to remain a non-smoker. Hypnotherapy is fastest becoming the favourite amongst the stars to quit smoking. The list includes Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and Ewan McGregor. Why ? Because it has one of the highest success rates to quit smoking permanently. And it will work for you!
But I am afraid of quitting permanently ? Some smokers feel it`s part of their identity. Think about this. You are never a smoker, just some-one who smokes cigarettes; it is the cigarettes that smoke. This means smoking cigarettes are not part of you, but an external action. Life and the problems it throws at us is still there, with or without cigarettes. Smoking is an additional burden- to your finances and health. Hypnotherapy ends that fear and gives you the confidence and pride to move on to a healthy outlook, for life.
Addiction or habit ? some smokers can quit overnight, some only smoke socialising, most won`t smoke in front of their children or sleep through the night without the need to smoke. Addiction wouldn`t allow that luxury.
What is a habit ? Smoking by it`s very nature is a repetitive action. So as with anything that is repeated often enough, the mind takes this on board as normality and then this becomes a habit. Habits are really useful, because as with any habit it is way below conscious thought, so habits initiate that inner automated response. As any habituated action is undertaken without seemingly, having to think about it, so if necessary, will consequently allow the mind to focus efficiently on other tasks. Why do some smokers feel powerless to quit ? The part of the mind that runs the smoking habit loves the comfort of repetition and routine. Consequently hates change. Any habit starts to feel normal so being a non-smoker can feel as though there is something missing without cigarettes.
What about the nicotine ? Nicotine does play a part in all this, but not such a large part as many believe. After around 48-72 hours of stopping there is no nicotine left in your system. It is more about the associations you have built up over time. If a smoker always lights up at the end of meal this will somehow seem to finish and round it off ; the same may apply to alcohol. Or to relieve boredom while they decide what to do next. These are examples of triggers that often initiate the need for a cigarette and are far more powerful than nicotine. Smokers condition themselves to expect and recieve some benefit from smoking a cigarette. When there is that expection of some benefit from smoking, the thought of this triggers off the mind to totally focus on lighting up. So much so, people are, in essence, self hypnotising themselves to smoke.Why hypnotherapy? The fact smokers are so focused on that next cigarette the best way to redirect those thoughts are to work in the same place that triggers off the urge to smoke. Reasoning with the conscious mind usually doesn`t work long term. Every-one knows the risks of smoking, so if common sense was all people needed to quit, there would never be a struggle to quit or the need for willpower. The best way to change comfortably is to not only stop smoking but stop “being” a smoker by changing the way smoking is viewed. In this way the normality of smoking is restored back to feeling unnatural. In fact it will be something that is not even a consideration and they may even wonder why they had put off quitting for so long and why they even started smoking in the first place.Hypnotherapy is the natural route to successfully stop smoking. Hypnosis can really help smokers understand their reasons for smoking and the ability to appreciate the benefits of quitting. This offers a whole new perspective on smoking, by re-thinking all the situations that made it a compulsion, not a choice,to light up. By identifying these, new habits can then be created. Habits that put the smoker back in the driving seat giving back freedom of choice.
What are the first steps? identify your personal reasons for smoking- for instance is it to relax,to concentrate,to socialize or simply you enjoy a smoke? Also ask yourself what situations are linked to smoking; is it to end a meal, have with a drink, before bed. Possibly some other reasons and situations or a blend of these. With the help of a skilled hypnotherapist you can have a completely different perspective on smoking so those reasons along with the desire to smoke no longer exists.
* Hypnosis ends that fear, ends that denial. * Hypnosis gives back confidence and pride to move towards a healthy outlook- for life. * Ivertherapy can give you the best opportunity to successfully quit- for life.
How to get rid of fears and phobias with hypnotherapy is easier than you may realise. Once a person learns how to recognise the trigger and to stay in control, they are on the way to overcoming the phobia. So, how do you get rid of a phobia ? Panic originates from an external cue, which in turn triggers an internal response of fear. The cure for a phobia lies in weakening the bond between the fear stimulus and fear response. Hypnotherapy allows you to view the fear calmly, so the fear response is neutralised.
Do you need to know what initiated the fear? It can be useful, but also can be overcome, if it`s simply a fear. When do fears become phobias ? A fear, if ignored over time, often will not go away and in fact, will run the risk of intensifying the feeling that triggers the fear. This can then develop into a full blown phobia. What is the difference between phobias and fears ? Fears are easier to control, whereas dealing with phobias may appear impossible.You will have an over powering urge to avoid that situation under any circumstances, believing that your very survival is at risk. You will in fact, feel that you are under threat and this will initiate the fight or flight response. So you will do anything in your power to keep away from any similar future situations. * Top 10 fears *
Top fear – Fear of Flying Are you nervous just at the thought about booking a holiday abroad? And as the time gets nearer the more intense the feelings become. The day to fly out is viewed with a deep seated dread. Well,there is no need to suffer anymore. Ivertherapy puts you back in control through hypnosis and relaxation techniques.
The holiday will no longer be blighted with anxieties about the return flight. You can enjoy your holiday completely from start to finish. From booking right through to the return flight home.
Maybe your fear is something more diverse ? You are not alone. Here`s a list of strange phobias-
Scared ? Feel nauseaous ? Panicy ? This technique works for any anxieties-
Identify the particular emotion that initiates the anxiousness and then learn to neutralize this:
Imagine your fist is a powerful magnet and any tension you feel in your body are iron filings.
Think about where in your body you feel that tension.
Take a few deep breaths and very slowly draw together all the tension away from you and attract it all into a large bundle into your fist as you gently clench it.
As you clench your fist, you attract more and more tension away from your body and into your fist.
On a slow out breathe,relax your body as you release your fist and flick the tensions far away into the distance. Notice tension leaving your body.
Repeat this until you restore calm.
The more you practice this, the easier and quicker you can restore control.
This is just one of the many ways that I teach to overcome any type of anxiety.Once you are physically relaxed,then it is literally IMPOSSIBLE to go into panic mode.
Hypnotherapy is the fastest and easiest way to get rid of phobia.
You no longer have to live within the parameters of those self imposed limitations that you are forced to live under.There is one part of you that wants to be released from this. While another is reluctant. But there is no need- Ivertherapy leads you into a comfortably cure without any unecessary fear, without any undue stress. Ivertherapy * Hypnotherapy at it`s best *
Weight loss hypnosis may not be the first thing that springs to mind when you need help losing weight. But you can enjoy effective weight loss with hypnotherapy. Fast weight loss diets are not a healthy way to lose weight. If you want healthy weight loss, the best way to lose weight is slimming down gradually. Quick weight loss leads to a slow metabolism and encourages food cravings and bingeing. The chances are that you will gradually pile back the pounds once again.
Do you find weight loss diets a chore and you find that the weight creeps back on afterwards anyway? Hypnotherapy is for you. Do you want to fit into whatever clothes you want; knowing that they look will good on you ? Hypnotherapy is for you.
So, does hypnosis work for weight loss and if so how to lose weight ? Well, you need to identify your unwanted eating habits and by using hypnosis for weight loss they will no longer continue to influence you.
Because you change to a healthier life style and start losing weight , as you know, this doesn`t mean that you won`t eventually return back to your old habits. This is because the part of your mind that maintained the habits will be in the background waiting for an opportunity to hurl you back into those old familiar routines. yes, but WHY ?
When you keep doing something in the same way often enough, you will have created a habit. Let`s say, for instance, every time you have an afternoon cuppa, you have a biscuit with it, this forms a habit. Then, if you stop having that biscuit, it will feel strange and unfamiliar. So, by deciding you need to lose weight, this is only half the story…..so let`s provide you with the other half.
The mind runs on two integral parts; conscious and subconscious. Consciously you decide that you need to lose weight and make the decision to start a healthy diet. However, the subconscious mind still runs the old programmes, in this example, the biscuit going with a cuppa. Whenever you decide to do something, the mind looks to the subconscious for agreement, as the subconscious is the boss. Habits are automatic actions; something you have always done and the subconscious mind holds the belief that it is what you should continue to do, without question. So, despite all that hard work to stick to your diet plans and lose weight, before you know it, “the boss” will persuade you to return back to your old ways, yet again.
Consequently it`s that part of you that won`t let go of all those unwanted eating habits where the changes need to happen. Just taking the decision ” I want to lose weight ” is not enough.
Doing something different means that you need a whole new mindset, not just a small part of you…..but again- how ?
Your subconscious thoughts need to support your weight loss plan as they are still running the old eating habits. Consequently as hypnosis is a direct line to those inner thoughts, with the skill of a hypnotherapist, you can actually change those thoughts and end yo-yo dieting once and for all !
Hypnotherapy is the best way to lose weight
Eureka ! yes the weight really does stay off !
Hypnotherapy for permanent weight loss.
A natural and safe solution.
No embarrassing weigh-ins.
Effective weight loss without weight loss products or shakes or pills.

End craving certain foods and be back in control again.
Stop smoking made easy with hypnosis. Hypnosis gets fast results, without a struggle. No cravings, no weight gain, no denial and no fear about the unknown.
Do you find you don`t really enjoy smoking cigarettes ? Do you worry about the risks of smoking ? Have you tried to quit smoking before and then started again ? Are you wondering how to quit smoking cigarettes? If you had a magic formulae that would help you stop without any smoking withdrawal symptoms or weight gain, would you consider using this ?
Does hypnotherapy work ? Well, it`s not magic, but it will surprise you how you can quit smoking easily by working with an expert hypnotherapist at Ivertherapy.
The smoking habit itself, like any habit is under the control of the part of your mind that runs on routines and thus hates change. The only way this part will change comfortably is when you stop smoking with hypnosis.
You can end the feeling that smoking is part of your identity and subsequently your life. Think about this. You are never a smoker; you are just some-one who smokes cigarettes; it is the cigarettes that smoke ! This means smoking a cigarette is not part of you as a person, but an external action. Hypnosis ends that fear of being without cigarettes at your side and will give you the motivation to move confidently towards a healthier future.
We find out your reasons for smoking – possibly to relax, to concentrate, to socialize,maybe it just feels “right” to smoke in certain situations, such as last thing at night or when having a drink. Probably some other reasons or a blend of these. With the help of Ivertherapy you can feel completely different about smoking by targeting your reasons so your need for a cigarette no longer exists. The fact is this will allow you to realise that you have quit nothing at all …. and means that you have gained all the advantages that are important to you that being a happy non-smoker brings about.
A report on hypnosis myths and facts. Because there are many misconceptions about hypnosis in clinical hypnotherapy we hope to dispel these this month.
Lesson 1– Skeletons in The Closet
Under hypnosis, you will not reveal anything about yourself that you do not wish to. You will not say or do anything out of character. In fact you are more on your guard and alert to anything that may threaten your safety and wellbeing, as your mind will be fully focused.
Each session is explained briefly beforehand and you can run through any questions that you may have. The majority of sessions when under hypnosis, it not usually necessary to enquire on anything, unless it is to make an evaluation on what progress is being made towards the desired outcome.
What needs to remain private stays private.Added to this, sessions are always confidential and you will never be judged. Hypnotherapy works, so why go it alone, when professional advice and help will get the results you want.
Lesson 2-Only for weak-willed stupid people
The reverse is true. The best clients are those who are intelligent and have a vivid imagination. However, there is no such thing as good or bad hypnosis, because hypnosis works for every-one. So,you can still be helped if you are not particularly imaginative, although I find with a bit of encouragement, most people are more creative than what they think they are !
Think of your favourite room in the house,close your eyes and remember what`s in the room…. now describe something in it … see you can imagine, can`t you? Do you sometimes get anxious ? Well, that is using your imagination to create what might happen. When you employ the services of a professional hypnotherapist, you can then learn to create a better future. All this, while benefiting from the totally relaxing experience of hypnosis.
Lesson 3- Look into my eyes
If you do not want to be hypnotised, you won`t be. There are many theories that are quite unfounded. There is no bad hypnosis. There is no mind control. The reason people go to a clinical hypnotherapist is for help. Hypnosis works only with willing participants. You would never do anything that you wouldn`t do or say normally. So you can talk and look at a hypnotherapist, but no-one can “do hypnosis” for you. A hypnotherapist guides you to hypnotize yourself.
Lesson 4-Getting stuck in hypnosis
People self-hypnotise throughout the day and naturally bring themselves back out of hypnosis. Watching a film, reading a book, driving on a familiar route, in fact anything that takes you into “automatic pilot ” is all self hypnosis. This frees up the conscious part of the brain to get on with day-to-day decisions. Clients often enjoy the total relaxation that hypnotherapy brings about, so may be reluctant to return to their full alert state. This is similar to being in a day-dream and you may feel you don`t want to come out of it, as it feels so euphoric. Once instructed to return to full alertness. the mind will oblige, as the subconscious is always attentive.
Additionally, in an emergency, the subconscious mind will within an instant, activate the survival instinct. It will take over and bring you instantly out of hypnosis as it puts you on high alert. This is the subconcious`s prime objective, to protect and serve. No logic, just action.
Lesson 5-You are feeling Sleepy.
BUT you will not fall asleep while in hypnosis, unless the session is particularly boring or you are tired!
Hypnotherapy gives people the opportunity to enjoy the wonderful feeling of tranquillity as attention is aimed towards letting go of tension within the body. The mind can then concentrate on a new perspective in order to gain an insight into making the changes required.
Under hypnosis people can be totally relaxed but definitely not asleep. The mind is fully focused on the steps needed to achieve those life changing results.You will be totally alert once the hypnotherapist has counted you back into the room. Neither will you sleep at will, if commanded – that is tricks left to stage shows and tv. Stage hypnosis is different from clinical hypnosis on many levels. Stage hypnosis is there merely for entertainment and the people who participate are willing volunteers, as no-one would behave against their character as you will find the volunteers are extrovert characters and are happy to be up on stage for a laugh ……….. for instance thinking they are James Brown or dancing erotically.
Here`s a video that demonstrates that we are easily led to believe facts and become influenced by them. This is why advertisers spend thousands of pounds to tell us we need to purchase their particular brand. Hypnotherapists use hypnosis in a positive way and only have your best interests at heart.

Spring is in the air and Easter approaches. All good, unless you are trying to diet. If you find you binge on chocolate and find the urge is over whelming, fear not ! Provided there is a part of you that wants to change a behavior, hypnosis can help the other part to be in line with your wishes. So what may have seemed to be an addiction is nothing more than a distant thought. We create our own habits and behaviors, we are not born craving chocolate, cigarettes, alcohol even. So does it not make sense we can just as easily re-create new habits that are more in line with the person you are today.Hypnotherapy relaxes and focuses the mind so you do not need willpower. Instead we work with you and not against, so you can implement change as a natural process. Happy Easter from Ivertherapy !
1. Establish a bed-time routine. This means giving your body and mind the message you are starting to relax at least an hour before bed. Avoiding any mental stimulation such as the t.v. and computer- and keep these out of the bedroom.
2.Avoid alcohol,caffeine and products that incorporate caffeine.
3.Learn to switch off your mind. Have a notebook next to you,so you can then write it down. This can be sorted out in the morning, as your mind, after a good nights sleep, will be sharper and clearer.
4.Do not force yourself to sleep. You wouldn`t do it as a child, no doubt, so why would you now- you allow yourself to fall asleep, in your own good time.
5.Keep focused on the positives. Not what you don`t want, but what you do want – you want to relax and to wake up refreshed in the morning. Keep enforcing this and over time, your mind will accept this- and it will happen.
6.Keep the bedroom dark. Dusk stimulates us to get sleepy,and light stimulates us to naturaly wake.
7.Keep at a comfortable temperature. Your core body temperature will drop, so make sure your extremeties are kept warm, but don`t keep the room temperature high.
8.Turn your clock away from you.
9.Learn to visualise yourself going to bed, and sleeping throughout the night.
10.Check with your doctor that there are no medical reasons for insomnia. Often stress can be the main factor, and even when this situation has passed, we may still be holding onto the stress and need to learn to relax at night.
Sleep impacts heavily on our physical and mental health We are hard wired to sleep, so we are able to wake refreshed in the morning, suitably repaired and rested. Sometimes your sleep becomes disrupted and with repetiton becomes a tiresome habit- literally!
Restoring what is a natural instinct may seem impossible. Hypnotherapy can give you the results you require by changing old behaviours so easily restoring that inborn instinct.
The fact that Ivertherapy teaches people a series of techniques to help relax and maintain calm means you will Continue reading →
1.Avoid the term “lose” weight.
Think about it; when you lose something what do you do? Yes, you try to find it and get it back again.
2.Always think in the positive.
Stop using must not, should not .. but I will, I prefer.. The mind does not recognise negatives, only positives . For instance – DO NOT think of a Mars bar…… .. you probably have though!
3.Get a good night`s sleep.
Lack of sleep can lead to overeating. This is because the body has not adequately replenished the serotonin levels; serotonin activates the “feel good” factor. This can lead to craving carbohydrates and fatty foods.
4.Drink adequate water.
Water helps to flush out the toxins stored in body fat. The signal that you are hungry is the same as thirsty, so, especially in between meals always check this out first. If you are still genuinely hungry have a healthy snack.
Not just empty calories but you may be tempted to eat rubbish- same problem the next day if you have a hangover.
6.Think why you want to drop weight.
Make sure it is for yourself and not to please some-one else. Then give yourself an achievable target and set a date to aim for.
7. Visualization; ( best as you first wake or just before you sleep )
Imagine your day ahead, anticipating any weak moments and how you will overcome them and imagine how you want to look; this can be the final result or step by step. Hypnotherapy gets results everytime, no diets, no gimmicks, just dropping weight naturally.
Many people are taught as children not to be wasteful. Fine when you are a child. Take this forward to adult life and eating everything that is on your plate could have developed into an unwelcome habit. Habits often can be so deep-rooted, it seems a mammoth task to change. This is due to not working in the place the habit is stored ; the drivers that almost as if by magic “make us overeat. ” Hypnotherapy works alongside of habits, so can gently ease you into a more preferable way of thinking and behaving. Throwing out what we do not need to eat is not a waste. With only a few hypnotherapy sessions you can automatically eat less food each meal-time , so in turn you will serve up less on your plate. So you can find your waist again, hence “waste to waist.” http://www.ivertherapy.co.uk
To stop smoking is a mindset *1st : make it your decision then stick with it you do this for you initially, not to please some-one else.
*2nd : ask yourself the reasons why you smoke – stressed out, – bored, – concentrate easier, – relaxing , or simply enjoy – anything other reasons ?
*3rd : what situations leads you to smoking a cigarette – at the end of a meal, – before going to bed, – with a drink , – on the phone, – maybe you can add more ?
The mechanics and drivers that lead us to smoking are way below conscious decision, so it is far easier to use hypnotherapy , as this changes the way we view cigarette smoking.
Helping you identify what drives your smoking routine and the mechanics behind it. I am an expert in my field , so why go it alone ? Whether it is in one session or several my complete package gives you complete support throughout , empowering you to take total control and put an end to nicotine once and for all. Aiming for a life-time of total indifference to smoking.
