Photographers capture those special moments… they help to create memories… or even capture events on camera that you may not otherwise have ever actually seen for yourself.
Cake decorators create edible works of art, that make a celebration extra special by producing an amazing cake for everyone to enjoy looking at and of course, eat!
Doulas offer practical and emotional support before, during and after the birthing process.
These are three examples of skilled and passionate people that tend to come into your life at certain points and help to create positive experiences for short periods of time – and of course, to create the positive memories that those times provided their client with.
Hypnotherapists on the other hand, can actually assist their clients to strengthen neural-connections and create new neural pathways in the brain, that can cause great changes to their lives. Hypnotherapy can accelerate so many processes. For example, when it comes to quitting smoking, the NHS website states “By six weeks of NRT treatment, you should aim to have cut your usual cigarette consumption by half and have stopped smoking completely by six months.” – Six months to stop smoking?! I can help you stop smoking immediately, in under two hours! The brain has the power to do it, you just need a little help to give it the correct prompts, then hey presto, you’re a non-smoker!
Using hypnotherapy, I can help clients to stop using highly addictive, lethal, class A drugs and help them get through withdrawal, deal with the issues that caused them to start using in the first place, as well as addressing a myriad of other issues and helping them to create a positive future. In doing what I do, I can save lives, by helping my clients to stop using, before the drugs quite literally kill them. This can all be done, in many cases, without the need for methadone.
I certainly don't want to offend any photographers, cake decorators or doulas, as I have a lot of respect for the work they do.. I just want to explain from a different stand point, WHY I am so passionate about the work that I do. While all of these highly skilled people can help to change moments in a life, I can, in theory, help to change a whole life - to SAVE a life... and that is immense!
