A Practice Founded On Ethics

The Guiding Principle Of A Good Life

When It's Your Life On The Line

My Ethics Matter!

The essence of everything important in life initially stems from morality! Morality evolves out of us following a certain pattern of prohibition. Basically, there are a lot of bad things you shouldn't do and then, if you can adhere to that pathway, you are good enough! This is how we start with raising children, we place a series of prohibitions on their behaviours. Basically, if those errant behaviours were to manifest, it would make their life really miserable! As an adult, we have to understand how we got from where we started, to where we are right now! Then, we have to understand in what ways we contributed to where we now find ourselves? Just look around you, look in your direct sphere of influence, and look at the things that you can fix. Then start to fix the things that are in need of repair but start small and build up from there. But where to start? Well, start in the places where you spend a lot of your time. For example, your room, the office desk, then work towards tidying up your mind. Essentially, that's the place where it all, slowly, begins to change. From there, you can begin to develop your deeper values, morals, and principles. This means, they will begin to define who you are, what you stand for, and, more importantly, what you will not! From this position, your ethics become shaped, honed and polished and your life's purpose and meaning become very real; tangible!

As a therapist, I learned this principle over many years. I discovered, that in order to help clients get their life together, it was imperative that I first achieve this for myself. I found ethical values and sound morals to be of the utmost importance, especially when working with other people. Because these people place their trust in you! It is, precisely this, that makes an ethical practice of paramount importance, even more so in the world of therapeutic intervention. As my practice evolved, my ethics morphed into the cornerstone of my approach to clinical hypnotherapy. Of course, having a desire to help others, means reaching higher levels of cognitive acuity. As such, it was imperative that my own levels of cognitive acuity must align with my life's principles. And because of that, my life's vision and mission statements really must be on the same page. In order to walk the talk; I have to be the talk! To that end, my life's philosophy is, "say what you mean, mean what you say!" So, as a therapist, I must align myself, mentally and spiritually with my clients' needs and desires. Because that is the birthplace of empathy and compassion To view the Code of Ethics I conform to, please click here:
 

To Guide Your Life - You need a Philosophy

My Philosophies:
Say What You Mean And Mean What You Say
Happy To Help You And Happy If I Don't
It Does What It  Says On The Tin

My life's philosophies were born out of my personal experience and how slowly or quickly I learned from life's challenges!

Say What You Mean, Mean What You Say!
When I was younger, I was at the mercy of everything that opposed my current mindset. Essentially, you can choose to swim against the forces of life, nature and the universe. But in doing so, you will never appreciate how easy life can be until you turn around and swim with life! This does not mean we acquiesce or give up, it just means we discover how to make life less complicated!, Do I always say what I mean and mean what I say? Well, while it is always my intention, occasionally I falter but never on purpose. However, every time I do not achieve my philosophy becomes an opportunity to learn and move forward. That said, saying what I mean and meaning what I say, is my guiding principle and I do achieve it much more often than not! In that sense, it is an ever-evolving principle and one day, not too far away, I will achieve that. But for the moment I am a work in progress; getting better one day at a time!

Happy To Help You, Happy Not To
Basically, this means, my happiness is mine to manage and what I do or do not do for you will not change the fundamentals of my happiness. Albeit it could have a minor effect on what I call transient, at that moment, happiness. If we buy or are given something we like, then people will often say they feel happy about that. They also know this feeling of happiness will not last, hence it being transient. By the same virtue, when something happens that makes us unhappy, it too is transient, it won't last either. So, when I adopted my philosophies, I slowly began to see and understand, that by learning, knowing and repeating these philosophies regularly, they began to shape the way I lived my life. In much the same way the memories you have of your job, hobby, home/social life etc. allow you to do these things effortlessly, naturally and proficiently. What you know determines what you can do and, in some sense, you cannot do well what you do not know! More importantly, with this philosophy, you stop doing things to please people or curry favour. Even if they are pleased, it's not why you do it, you do it because it's who you are, what you do. This means you do things without expectation and/or the need for external validation, acceptance, approval etc. Abraham Maslow referred to this state as 'Self Actualisation.' The pinnacle of a life worth living!

Thom Bush (or You) Does What It Says On The Tin
This saying evolved out of Ronseal's, (a UK paint manufacturer) advertising campaign. A decorator, complete with a paintbrush and a can of Ronseal, proceeded to tell the viewers what Ronseal can do, ending by putting the tin down and tapping the top, saying, "Ronseal, it does what it says on the tin!" That's authenticity, meaning, your feelings, thoughts and behaviours have to be in alignment with your inner self-dialogue, you have to be congruent. If the way you live outwardly is in conflict with your inner self, then you experience cognitive dissonance. In essence, we have to be who we really are, do what we do, as in, being in alignment with the inner self, and say what truly reflects the essence of the true self!

Trans4mational Therapy
The aim of my therapy is to help each client discover this true self, meaning, that most people's current self is a consequence of their life experience thus far, Starting with parents, friends, teachers, governments and world events, these things shape who we are, how we feel, think and behave. Hypnotherapy can shape your true destiny by tapping into that uniqueness that is the blueprint of life!

My Mission
I see my mission as the reaching of a predetermined set of objectives; the natural consequence of clarity of mind and or purpose! The pursuit of understanding and appreciating the needs and wants of each client and setting in motion a course of action towards reaching that end.
So, I promise you, The Client, a total commitment of my time, my experience and my full care and concern for your welfare whilst in my charge. The basic tenets of my therapy and life are:
  • Compassion
  • Empathy
  • Honesty
  • Diligence
  • Appreciation
  • Integrity
In addition to all that I promise you, I promise myself the time to enjoy my family, my work and my life. Basically, if I can't deliver the pursuit of success, happiness and true inner love for myself. Then how can I feel congruent to do the same for you?

Very few of us are born with perfect circumstances. Therefore it is our duty, if only to ourselves, to pursue those attributes that define true success and happiness in our life. Thus, when we look back, from where we started, to where we ended up, we can hopefully, understand the growth and fulfilment of our ambitions, our achievements and our successes. A life of meaning evolves out of the pursuit of a higher calling in our spiritual progression!
