A lot has happened in eh last week or so and I haven’t written about any of it. I especially decided to stare clear of the EU referendum, as which way to vote was a definite choice of personal conscience. I am going to now write about the aftermath though, without saying which vote, remain or leave, was right or wrong. I have noticed over the last couple of days the news stories on the internet report an increase in racial abuse. Some of it may be argued by the perpetrator to
It's the first day of summer
Well it’s here, you wouldn’t know it looking at the weather but it is finally here, summer. Yes today is the first day of summer. Those long hot glorious days are officially here. Although in this part of the country, today’s long hot glorious day is cunningly disguised as an autumn one. Add to the weather factor it’s Monday and as a result some of us will be feeling a little, blah, for want of a better term. As a result you may start thinking in the negative. Nothing good co
Who really benefits?

No, my problem lies with the marketing of this industry and the negative side effects on the lives of those who become addicted to the thrill of the gamble.

This unwillingness to accept the facts as presented may have, as I’ve already said, been down to him being fixated on his initial thoughts. Put simply fixation is when we make up our mind on someth
Do you stammer?
About four days ago I was at home planning a session and doing general paperwork. Unusually I was not alone. My wife was off work ill and watching TV when she drew my attention to Gareth Gates. He was on TV talking about his stammer. She asked, couldn’t you help someone with a stammer? The answer is in most cases they’re psychological so yes. I say in most cases because of personal experience. You see last year one of our sons developed a stammer. Over a short period of just
Hypnotherapy, Simply Explained the eBook
If you’re a regular reader you will know that I haven’t blogged in the last couple of weeks. A lot has happened in that relatively short space of time that normally I would have written about and so I may revisit those topics in the coming days or weeks. The reason I haven’t been writing the blog is I was busy writing a short book. Now I’m not hoping to have a best seller but just thought a short informative book would be ideal for anyone thinking of using the services of a h
