Creativity and Hypnosis

Over the years I have gained some insights into the ways in which memories, thoughts and behaviours influence the way the brain and mind work. Below are some articles reflecting some of those insights!

Article 1

The Power Of Words The Magic Of Fiction

It has long been my belief that hypnosis performs the equivalent, in a contextual manner, of miracles. Not in a magical way, per se, but in how it tickles the imagination and so doing, stimulates the brain via the mind.

The Garden of The Mind

In my home in London, I had a beautiful garden; at least that’s how I saw it. My passion was growing many types of conifers, I had over 30 of them in 11 different varieties. Later in life, I discovered the similarity between gardens, to minds!

Article 7

Memory, use it or lose it

Everyone has a “senior moment.” Maybe you’ve gone into the kitchen and can’t remember why, or can’t recall a familiar name during a chat. Memory lapses can occur at any age, but ageing alone isn't generally a cause of the cognitive decline

Article 10

Is hypnotherapy on the NHS; possible?

Hypnosis and its benefit to healthcare in countries like the UK, Europe and the United States. Hypnosis is well established and very effectively self-regulated. While moving towards regulation private practitioners are available to help.

Article 2

Depression is so depressing

Depression is not always easy to diagnose and many people suffer this life-limiting condition without ever seeking help or treatment. Sometimes they don't even know it's the problem! Then there is another class that actually self-diagnose themselves!

Article 5

What is the mind?

In a so-called normal world, it would seem somewhat irrational to talk about something that doesn't actually exist as if it did. Surely this is the stuff of Harry Potterdom! Yet, when it comes to the ubiquitous mind that is exactly what we are doing!

Article 8

Stress hormones promote building negative memories

When we experience a devastating or tragic event, why is every detail burned into memory; whereas, many positive experiences simply fade away? Actually, it's more complicated than scientists thought.

Article 11

Customising a client's therapy

Hypnosis is a medium in which therapeutic interventions are delivered straight to your subconscious brain. Which simply ensures the important information to maintain life, is processed subconsciously before becoming consciously aware.

Article 3

Mind is the destroyer and creator of a life worth living

The above means, that it doesn't really matter that much, to your brain. If thoughts are negative or positive, they both influence the way it processes sensory stimuli or stored memories or combinations of that stimuli.

Article 6

Flying, is the perfect plan for living

The first time I flew was in1970, we were going on our first holiday as a married couple. My wife had flown before and I somehow thought I would enjoy the experience. However, 3 months before the flight, a DeHavilland Comet crashed, what happened next?

Article 9

The art of breathing in a panic?

Then calm down and take a deep breath. Diaphragmatic breathing in a nutshell. If one could live by such any mantra, it should be: "do the right thing, the right way, every day" - that way, all things being equal, you will live a long and happy life!

Article 12

Why we're hooked on negative news!

So much of life is predicted by the way our brain is wired from birth. We may think we're autonomous individuals, but actually, life is coded by the way our childhood creates responses to novel experiences that garner a perceived value later in life.

Article 13

A real story of compassion!

So often I hear people say, "I know how you feel." Yet this is often on the pretext that they have experienced something similar, other times, it is merely rhetoric, the kind of talk that makes it appear that they are a caring person, which they may be. However, there is a real art to understanding how a person feels and unless you go thru that process, you really don't have a clue!

Article 14

The Mental Clean Up

From the day we are born, we start to hear, and then imitate the language of the world around us. However, it is rare for that language to be free from specific influences that shape the way we think, feel, and behave!
