The Secrets Of Cultivating More Happiness Every Day 

 
How often have you searched for happiness in weight lose, promotion or feeling wanted? 
 
Often we search for happiness in external temporary things, which eventually predict disappointment. 
If only happiness was gained by losing weight, having a certain body type, a face lift, promotion or income.  
 
We have been fed these messages for years and at some point many have come to believe the fable that the fabulist would have us believe, that's correct, there is usually a corrupted moral to the story that inevitably will make someone else, wealthier or happier. 
 
Happiness though is an internal experience, enjoyed from within, our true self. 
 
We have many barriers that might sabotage our experience of happiness on a daily basis. 
 
We all have the internal saboteur, I wonder how you self sabotage? 
 
I wonder if you are ready to let go of what is holding you back, not allowing you to live your full life, the life you are meant and entitled to live. 
 
This self sabotage might include, worrying about what others think, just practising worrying about anything, placing ourselves in a hierarchy of success, staying busy, having a perfectionist mindset, noticing what is wrong in our world, this is known as an external locus of control. 
 
Thankfully, we can overcome these obstacles, here are some ways we can cultivate happiness every day by wondering. 
I Wonder How You Feel About Changing For The Better? 
 
I Wonder - Is So Much Better Than I Worry 
 
We can spend destructive time thinking about negative consequences that might never happen in our life, those possibilities that might never happen, can reduce the quality of our present experience and they are only possibilities?  
One of the fastest ways to reduce the frenetic pattern of over thinking about the “what-ifs" is to use the turn around approach. This is very different from just pretending everything is OK or even perfect, and yet allows balance to our emotional experience. 
 
Examples might be: 
 
Fear of failure: I might fail? 
Try the, I wonder: I wonder, how it would be if things go better than planned, and I am happier than I ever thought I could be? 
 
Fear of rejection: I could be rejected? 
Try the, I wonder: I wonder, what if I am accepted, how will my life change for the better? 
 
Fear: What will others think if it does not work out? 
The I wonder: I wonder how it will feel to realise my ambition. I look forward to living with more happiness. 
 
Another approach is to wonder how we might support a close friend, a younger you or a child. How would you guide and nurture them?  
 
How would an optimistic friend handle this scenario?  
 
What helps your optimistic friend to have a more optimistic perspective, have you asked them?  
See Life as an Adventure 
We all need to make plans and have direction however, allowing life to develop brings back spontaneity, surprise and enjoyment; by seeing life as unfolding and expanding, we can enjoy the creative adventure. Appreciating the moment, relaxing into the present, allows the surprise and wonderment into our lives. 
 
It can be disappointing when expectations are not met, acceptance is the key to happiness. Looking for five great things everyday, embracing the magic in every moment and noticing those tiny things that make us smile. Waiting for a miracle to happen or judging ourselves against others can be so destructive. 
 
Being an active participant in our own lives, realising how meaningful each moment is, allows the appreciation of life. 
Being Authentic (Carl Rogers) 
Being honest and real with ourselves and others instead trying to be what we think we should be, allows us to be who we truly 
are. We start by identifying how we feel about ourselves, our needs and what we want and slowly move toward acting on these.  
 
What excites and fascinates you, what engages, recharges and lifts you, debating your preferences and what you feel like doing is uplifting. A while ago, someone told me "good food is what you enjoy, if that's a burger, that's good food to you." 
 
The more you get to know who you really are and what you really want, the better you can understand and connect with your feelings and the happier you are likely to be, When you can, start moving away from the shoulds and shouldn'ts, these are parental words of control that we internalise, you are an adult now, within your own boundaries of morality, you can have, do and achieve what you want.  
 
Authentic living offers a freedom for those with the courage to be happy and live a real life.

What Are The Real Causes Of Depression And  How Do We Remain Resilient And Buoyant 

 
Certainly a lack of serotonin is now robustly rejected as the cause of depression, which fiercely places medication and pharma at question. 
 
Whilst "What Are The Causes of Depression" is a valid question, we come to the conclusion that there are many answers, certainly everyone's depression is different however, there are common denominators: 
 
1) Having a lack of control. 
 
2) Not having a voice, as we might experience by being passive and not assertive. 
 
3) A lack of meaning or purpose in life, include meaningful connections with others, 
 
4) Not being valued and the quality of what we value. 
 
Whilst ones experience might be of anger or anxiety, these are considered to be depressive states. 
" Man was born to fail but live in hope" 
Some see this statement as depressing, for me it highlights mans spiritual need for hope, to be able to continue, it identifies what makes us human. The need for hope is identified in the four common denominators, a reduction in hope is proportionate with our change in mood. 

Man's Search For Meaning Could Becoming A Therapist Bring More Meaning To Your Life?   

The classic tribute to hope, from the Holocaust  
Viktor E Frankl 
 
Existentially, depression can be seen as a healing process, providing there is a guide to light, which might offer hope. 
 
Perhaps it is time to become a therapist?  
The work offers meaning and purpose, the feeling of being valued by a client restores faith in the self. 
 
What of control? 
You are working for you as well, your needs, working when you need to means you are in control. 
 
 
 
 

Stress And Anxiety Can Double Your Risk Of Dementia  

Stress And Anxiety Can Double Your Risk Of Dementia  

Dementia risk doubled in people who suffer with stress and anxiety, poor sleep patterns, unhealthy diet and lack of exercise can be contributors to anxiety. 
 
Recent research indicates that people with tendencies toward worrying and moodiness are more likely to experience negative emotions like depression, anxiety, guilt and envy. However, the link between stress, anxiety and dementia only occurred in people experiencing long-term stress.  
 
Simply put, when we have a certain personality profile, worrier, perfectionist nature, external locus of control, internally sensitive, find it difficult to let things go and over conscientious, we are particularly sensitive to chronic stress. 
 
However, those with this personality profile not exposed to excessive stress, were at no greater risk of dementia. 
(Dr Lena Johannsson)  
 
Dr Johannson, could see that the women who developed Alzheimer disease had more often been identified in the personality test 40 years earlier as having the above tendencies. "We found a clear statistical correlation for the women who had at the same time been subject to a long period of stress.” 
 
The study followed 800 women with an average age of 46 for almost four decades. They were asked if they had experienced prolonged periods of stress. 
 
This meant a month or more of ongoing stress related to family, work or health that created feelings of nervousness, fear and irritability. 
 
Thirty-eight years later, one-in-five had developed dementia. The risk was substantially higher, though, in those who had the above personality profile. 
 
At higher risk were those who had the above personality profile with an introvert nature. 
 
“We know that many factors influence the risk of developing dementia. 
Our personality may determine behavior, lifestyle and how we react to stress, and in this way affect the risk of developing Alzheimer disease.” 
 
"However, this personality profile can be changed by therapy and its effects can be dramatically reduced." Dr Johannsson said: 
 
Those with this personality profile are more sensitive to stress than other people. 
 
The study was published in the journal Neurology (Johansson et al., 2014). 
 

Hypnotherapy 

In my experience these findings would escalate dramatically if the control group were left handed with a kinesthetic modality.  
 
Hypnotherapy is an ideal vehicle to address Anxiety & stress. 
 
No need to suffer, you can start to feel better after your first session and gain skills that you can own for the rest of your life.(James)

Hypnotherapy helps smokers kick the habit  

The pledge to stop smoking ranks among the top 10 New Year resolutions. An unusual tool for quitting is hypnotherapy. One ex-smoker who tried it suddenly lost his desire to light up, after only one session
 
Smokers know that tobacco use is linked to cancer and heart disease. However, it's not the rational, cognitive mind that keeps the nicotine habit in place - but rather, the recesses of the unconscious. And these can be reached through hypnosis. 
 
In Germany, hypnosis has been recognized as a treatment method in the field of psychotherapy since 2006 - but it still suffers from an image problem. This can be linked to how the practice of hypnotherapy is often confused with stage hypnosis, where a subject might be instructed to gulp down half-a-dozen raw eggs in front of a television audience and then have no memory of it afterwards. 
 
"In stage hypnosis, a person is in such a deep trance that cognitive thinking is switched off," explained Bonn hypnotherapist Norbert Schick. "Less than a third of all adults are capable of being hypnotized to that extent - it's like a blackout," continued Schick, who has been helping clients overcome their fears and addictions for the past 20 years. 
 
Bridge from conscious to unconscious 
 
By contrast, a smoker undergoing hypnotherapy to stop smoking is keenly aware of what's happening around him or her. 
 
"It is a natural state that everyone is capable of. When you're deeply engrossed in a great book or film, you're in a state of hypnosis," Schick said. 
 
The mind knows that it is watching a fictional film with actors playing characters, but is able to suspend disbelief for two hours in a dark movie theater. 
 
"In this trance-like state, the hypnotist communicates with the mind. You laugh, you cry, emotions swell, and the unconscious opens up," Schick added. 
 
Where there's a will, there's a way 
Cologne lawyer Jochen Gerhard, 58, had smoked at least a pack a day for 40 years until he quit cold turkey two years ago. In spite of coronary bypass surgery in his forties, Gerhard continued to smoke until his doctor gave him a hypothetical but realistic ultimatum: Quit smoking or die of a heart attack. The doctor then recommended a local hypnotherapist. 
 
"At that point, my will to quit was so great I said, okay, I'll try it," said Gerhard, who had nothing to lose except the 150 euros ($180) cost of a day-long group session. 
 
Gerhard was at first skeptical about hypnosis - especially when the day started with the hypnotherapist giving a pep talk like a Baptist preacher in a revival church. 
 
"He shouted and kept repeating: You don't want to smoke anymore! You can quit, you are strong! And we shouted back, 'Yes, we can, we are strong!'" he said. 
 
The motley group of young and old, men and women, were shown images of a smoker's lungs blackened by tar and yellow tobacco-stained teeth, among other grisly photos. Afterwards, they went outside to smoke their last cigarette. 
From skeptical to convinced 
When they returned to the gym, they lay down on mats to soft soothing music. The lights went out and a candle was lit to induce a hypnotic state. 
 
"I wondered if it wasn't all just hocus-pocus - but I tried to put aside those thoughts and concentrate on the hypnotist's voice," Gerhard said. "He kept repeating what he'd said earlier, but this time very slowly and emphatically." 
 
Then it was over, the lights went back up, and Gerhard threw out his remaining pack of cigarettes. 
 
"Since then, I've not had the urge to smoke. I don't miss it. I can't explain it," Gerhard said. 
 
The test of Gerhard's resistance to cigarettes came last Christmas when he and his wife Sabine spent the holidays with his relatives, who are all heavy smokers. "He didn't light up at all," said Sabine Gerhard, who had lived through Jochen's previous failed attempts to quit. 
 
This is what men don't like to talk about 
 
 
Smoking leads to impotence 
"He used to be a nervous wreck (without cigarettes) - but now he behaves like a normal, emotionally balanced person," she said. 
 
 
Reprogramming the mind 
Hypnotherapist Norbert Schick explained what happens during hypnotherapy: "It's like reprogramming the unconscious mind. The cigarette becomes less and less appealing until the smoker is indifferent to it." 
 
First attempts to quit smoking often fail - but it's not addiction to nicotine that keeps smokers from quitting, since the quickly metabolized chemical leaves the body in a matter of days. 
 
Martina Pötschke-Langer, head of the cancer prevention unit of the German Cancer Research Center, describes how a smoker's mind must be primed for quitting. "Quitting is a mental decision, and if a person is not ready, then no method will be successful," Pötschke-Langer told DW. 
 
"More than 80 percent of people quit without any support or methods. They decide they want to quit, and they do it," she said, adding that less than 1 percent of all ex-smokers in Germany had used hypnosis to quit smoking. 
 
"There is no recommendation by medical associations for hypnosis as an appropriate method to quit smoking," Pötschke-Langer said. But she conceded that in individual cases, hypnosis may help smokers kick the habit - depending on the skill and qualifications of the hypnotherapist.

Who Wants Change? 
We All Want Someone Or Something To Change. 
 
We Help You Use The Communications Skills That You Already Have: 
 
It doesn't matter how carefully we word things within our clinical or intimate relationships, we will create resentment if we do not follow a few simple steps: 
 
Is this just about your personal relationships, of course not. 
This is about our relationships in general, these skills are paramount with your client and personal relationships, if you are thinking about working with relationships or even couples please read on: 
 
The obvious tips are: 
 
Use "I" and not "you" statements, when we use "you" we usually appear critical and aggressive, criticism will agenda a defensive response, the other will usually feel attacked and defend. Defensive conversations are often destructive. 
 
Be careful about timing. You want to set aside a time to talk about problems, rather than spring them on your partner, who might be tired or wrestling with an issue of their own. 
 
Look for a compromise as a resolution and not a change. 
 
Listening means take turns, saying what you feel and why you feel that way, not waiting for the other to stop talking so that another point can be made. 
 
Be a good listener, make sure you repeat what you've just heard, so your partner or client knows you have herd, this is very much a Person Centred approach and part of the structure of the course. 
 
Negotiate a solution that works for both people, if we are relating this to your client, make sure your client would be comfortable with this approach in their lives. 
 
Please remember, when you feel upset, these are your feelings, when your client is upset it is their feelings, rarely the fault of anyone else but a response from previous experiences.  
 
Working these feelings through, by projecting your pain onto another will predict that you continue the cycle of pain throughout relationships, this will be the same for your client. 
 
If You Never Heal from What Hurt You, You Will Bleed On People That Didn't Cut You. 
 
And this is just the beginning.  
We practice these communication techniques, through role-play, exercises and lectures throughout the course. 
 
This not just a hypnotherapy course please read the syllabus here>>>>>>

Communication Skills That We Use In The Clinical Practice Can Be Similar To The Skills We Use In Our Personal And Intimate Relationships. 
 
 
We All Want Something Or Someone To Change  
 
Real Change  
Only  
Comes From Personal Change. 
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: 
 
In Our Next Blog 
We will be discussing how successful therapists and couples communicate, accepting that conflict is a natural part of any close relationship. 
Conflict resolution approaches. 
Realising and accepting, the reasons that we are upset are usually buried in the past, how to uncover and heal. 
The repetitive coping mechanisms that we use to defend our feelings, resentfully withdrawing, sulking, physically withdrawing, blaming the other etc. 
Yes, this is probably going on in your practice and at home, in relationships. 
How we live, work and cope with this pain whilst evolving. 
The secret ingredient that will help your client change, is the dynamic that helps us to remain in love in a long term relationship. 
Hey! And How to develop that ability. 
 
 
There is a reason why we refer to this course as advanced: 
 
We are not just teaching therapeutic techniques, and certainly not just hypnosis, this is a course for those who want to become a therapist.
