The Truth is Out.
Sometimes of our actions have long lasting consequences, often unforeseen at the time. I'm not going to dwell on who did what on the day but I'm going to use the Hillsborough disaster as an example. The events of this day still brings out a great deal of emotion to anyone from Liverpool because if you are a scouser and you weren't there or lost someone on that day, you know someone who was or did. It affects the whole city blue or red. People in charge on that day made bad de
Could Everton go down?
Wednesday night was Merseyside derby night and Liverpool beat Everton 4-0. These affairs are always a highly charged occasion and this was no exception. The trouble with this game is it was, in reality, all over very early in the second half. The teams came out for the second half with Liverpool in the lead by two goals to nil having looked the superior team for most of the first half. Both teams started the second half in pretty much the same attitude as they ended the first
The power of words
Hypnotherapy; hypnosis used for therapeutic purposes. Of course hypnosis is nothing more than talking to someone. It is the words used and how they’re used that makes it hypnosis. So can words really have a profound affect in changing our lives? Of course they can, we all have at least once felt a little down or happier because of something we’ve been told but change our mood a little is hardly having a profound affect. I am not going to write much more today, instead I’m goi
Last night Liverpool FC played Borussia Dortmund in a quarter final of the Europa League. This second leg of a two leg tie started 1-1 with Liverpool having the advantages of an away goal and playing at home. All they had to do was stop Dortmund scoring and they would go through. Liverpool didn’t have to score because of the away goals rule. Liverpool however don’t pay for draws so they attacked from the start. Unfortunately Dortmund are an excellent side who are not accustom
Mental health discrimination
Today read an article that unfortunately is a story of mental health discrimination. I say unfortunately because it’s 2016 and we are all supposed to have a better understanding of such things but to be honest, we still don’t like to publicly speak about mental illness. This story concerns a young lady, Miss Becci Wain, who had self-abuse scars on her arms, wanting to buy a bottle of champagne for her boyfriend’s birthday. As she is 21 years old there should not have been a p
In this post I’m explaining some changes I’ll be making to this website. I currently have eight pages and while I don’t want to just add pages for no reason I think one or two more can be justified. So I am going to create a page that explains the way I work with any client who desires to lose weight. I will explain where we start and why and then go through each phase and attempt to explain why we may feel about ourselves the way some of us do and our relationship with food.
After my last two posts regarding the help hypnotherapy can give the candidate when sitting exams or driving tests I thought, what about the nervous qualified driver, do they realise hypnotherapy can help their driving. You may know someone who is scared of using the outside lane of a motorway or even going on a motorway at all. They may just feel nerves when overtaking or being overtaken by a lorry. It’s not just drivers, passengers can by nervous too. These things can impac
Driving test pressure
On Friday I posted a blog about how I can help students prepare for their exams. The same process can be used for driving tests both the theory test and the practical test. Much of the anxiety people feel when going into tests or exam’s is self-produced. That is to say it is perceived stress or perceived pressure. It has been recognised in the military aviation world for quite some time. Most military flights in the UK are for training purposes but you still feel a certain am
Exam time is closing in.
Today is not only a Friday but for many of our school workers and their pupils it’s the last day of the Easter holidays. Back to school on Monday for another term. Not just another term for all though. This is traditionally the start of the end of GCSE courses and the like. That is to say it‘s the last learning period for subjects to be examined at levels of GSCE or higher. With the first exams on the GCSE time table normally starting in May. April will be mostly be given ove
The rule of consistency
When I was a technical instructor in the RAF I worked alongside civilian instructors. Now while we service personnel where only in post for a between 3 to 5 years after which we moved on back to actually maintaining aircraft, these civilian instructors where permanent. All where ex-servicemen themselves but most had been civilian instructors for quite some time, many over ten years. As a result when something had to change either in the curriculum or physically such as classr
