2015 is almost here. What are your dreams and resolutions for the coming year?
Will you try to quit smoking or maybe try to lose weight. These are two common New Year resolutions among many.
Others include not drinking as much, saving more, spending less, being a better person and.....the list goes on and on. In fact there are probably as many Mew Year resolutions as there are people.
Everyone has a different perspective on what that change means.
BUT, the big question is........
after making them how will you implement them in a way that makes them stick?
Here are 10 tips to help you turn those resolutions into the new you.
1. Know what you want.... specifically. A clearly defined goal makes it easier for your unconscious mind to look for ways to make it happen.
2. Write your New Year resolution down. Carry it with you, Read it often during the day. Ruminate on what it means for you.
3. Get intensely emotionally involved with your New Year resolution, Make it so compelling that it touches you deep inside to go forward with the change.
4. Make a list of ALL of the reasons how your change is going to improve your life. What are the rewards you experience as you go forward 1, 5, 10 and 20 years.
5. Make a list of ALL the consequences of not making this change in your life. What will happen to you over the next 1, 5, 10, 20 years as result of not taking action now.
6. Make a vision board. For visual people the process of making a vision board and having those pictures around you is a great support for youre unconscious mind.
7. Get a clear picture, a real sense of what you will be like after you have made the change you desire.
8. Visit your future self as described in Tip #7. Imagine stepping inside your future self "as if" you were trying on a new suit. Get a feel for what that is like.
9. Write a letter from your future self, say from 12 months ahead in December 2015. Things to include in the letter are a congratulations on making the change, maybe sharing how that change was made, how great it is to be living this new way as well as other encouragements.
10. See someone who knows how to get inside youre unconscious mind to tweak the programs you've already got running. Your current beliefs in the area you desire to change are the ones that are holding you back. When you see a skilled practitioner of change such as a hypnotherapist you will be better equipped to to create that change. Relying on will power only gets you so far. When your conscious mind is distracted you will fail. However, if the changes are made at the unconscious level where beliefs are situated then you will have a greater probability of making a successful change.
Did you know that January 4 is World Hypnotism Day. Its a day of dispelling the fears and myths around hypnosis and educating people about how hypnosis can help them access the power they have resident in their unconscious mind.
If ....you're ready to change .....then give me a call and I'll share the next steps for you.
Merry Christmas from the beautiful Gold Coast, Australia.

Welcome to Friday...and it is also World Mental Health Day!
Do you ever wonder why so many people get stressed, anxious, panicky and unhappy?
The statistics say there is something like 1 in 5 people at any one time experiencing mental illness. And the numbers for suicide is not too god either.
So, I thought I'd put together a list of tips to stay happy. How does that sound?

Whatever happened to the simple life of being a child?
There are so many pressures being applied to children these days it seems. One of these is the pressure to perform for selection at schools.
Recently I was contacted by a concerned Mum about her 9 year old daughter suffering anxiety, to the extent that the young girl became too ill to attend school. The cause?
A school test call NAPLAN. Apparently the school that the young girl wanted to go to uses the results of NAPLAN tests as part of their selection process.
The girl's Mum had tried psycholgists and doctors to no avail. She was still anxious to the point of nausea about the tests.
So, starting with the premise that nothing has a meaning until we give it a meaning...I began with the young girl by reframing what NAPLAN meant. After that, there was a number of conversational and NLP processes utilised to change her belief and associations with NAPLAN tests.
The result? She happily goes to school not worried about NAPLAN. In fact, NAPLAn reminds her of playing with her favourite toys (part of the change work).
Mum couldn't be happier.
Amazing what a few simple tweaks can do for our perception of the world around us.
After seeing the above story, if this sounds like something for you and you feel it could be right for your situation....then give me a call
Have a great day

Love to share with you two hypnotic concepts that will make a difference to how you experience your life......in a very positive way....would you like to know what they are?
One of my mates used to say "I've never had a bad day in my life...some are just better than others".. We all know the saying "shit happens". Right? Its how we deal with it that makes the difference...and you have a choice about how you deal with it.
We all have days that come to seemingly challenge us and knock us out of whatever comfort zone we've settled into. "Yours truly" is no exception and today was no exception. So I'd like to share two ways that I utilise myself to change how I work through things.
Firstly, REFRAMING....by which I mean, considering the situation from a different point of view. Have you ever had that experience before that when you looked at something differently you experienced it differently? You have....haven't you!
You can reframe things in a few different ways. One way is to ask yourself questions like "What else can this mean?" , "What's the gift inside this issue?", "Is there something for me to learn which I can be grateful for?" or even making statements such as "I'm grateful for the gift inside this ...". Play with it, ask yourself a few different questions and see what happens.
Another way to reframe, especially if you are a "feeling" type person is to move yourself physically into a different position. The movement and the different location create a change in perception. Actually, Anthony Robbins says "Motion creates emotion".
Secondly, STATE CHANGE, is a great way to change how you act/react to different situations. Being able to move your STATE OF MIND from negative to positive is a resource that you already have. Consciously using that resource is a skill to practise and develop. Remember a time when you felt flat, sad, negative.....how did you deal with stuff? Poorly, right?
Now flip that right around completely. Remember a time when you felt really strong, powerful and creative......how did you feel with stuff that happened? Like you could deal with it easily, confidently...didn't you?
Practise it with sincerity ....don't try to do it.... DO IT. You'll notice a difference.
"I'm grateful for what I've learnt today. It's a gift that is helping me to grow and be more of who I want to become"
Good night :)

Pain....it can be a terrible thing. It might be that you have had an accident or illness as the cause and you are stuck on pain killers.
OR, as in the video link attached, you could have decided to have a body piercing and didn't want to feel the pain.
What makes the difference between feeling pain and not feeling pain?
That's an interesting question, isn't it? And the answer is....
Well, we experience life through the filter of our beliefs. We represent to ourselves what the world means ...both inner and outer. If we believe that something is true for us then it is true in what we experience.
In the demonstration you will see on the link what I've done is suggested anesthesia to the volunteer and he believes that his forearm and then his nipple area are completely anesthetised while he gets his nipple pierced. Not once....but twice.
His mind, at an unconscious level, was able to change the meaning of his physical experience. The best thing is to watch for yourself and see his reaction.
I'd love to hear your feedback. Feel free to email me [email protected]

It happens at almost every show And in many one on one or group therapy sessions. Someone will come up and ask me "What if I can't be hypnotised?" or tell me"You can't hypnotise me!"
Both interesting questions and demonstrate that many people today are confused about what hypnosis is, and also , what it isn't"
Lets start with what hypnosis is.
It is a state of deep relaxation where the volunteer is so focused on the hypnotist's voice that they simply block everything else out. The critical conscious factor is bypassed and allows for the unconscious mind to accept suggestions.
While the volunteer appears to be asleep...they are only in a sleep like state and not sleep itself. Sort of like that zone between being awake and being asleep.
If you have a look at your activities each day...there are periods when you seem to operate on autopilot...from driving the car....to getting ready for the day....even to the work you do....
For example...have you ever driven to a location....got out of the car and say to yourself...how did I get here...you forgot the journey....because the unconscious mind took care of it.
The other statement - "You can't hypnotise me!", is usually a fear based statement. That is because the person making the statement is afraid that they will lose control of the mind and hand it to me, as the hypnotist. Simply not true. This is a joint venture. If you don't want to go on the journey then you won't....go on the journey.
Once there is understanding of the hypnotic state then the fear is removed and the volunteers can allow themselves to have fun and enjoy the experience.
And that is what its all about.
Have a sensational day, where ever you are.
PS I love to hear your feedback. Tell me what you want to hear more of.

Sometimes you can see great insights in simple things.
Take kid's movies for example. Like Kung Fu Panda.
Here is this panda, called Po, who works in a noodle shop.
All the time he is dreaming of being a kung fu master.
When he wakes from his dreams he is just a panda.
And yet, he still dreams of his goal in his waking moments.
An opportunity comes for him to train with the greats.
The turtle grand master decrees him to be the Dragon Warrior.
The trainer puts Po through his paces and discovers that Po is really
setting a new record low of achievement. Zero. Po becomes down on himself.
He is not like them. They do not make him welcome and he feels out of place.
Po goes to leave, he totally lacks any belief in himself. Yet the trainer
is given an insight about believing in Po and he will see Po become the Dragon Warrior.
If you haven't seen the movie - go and get it.
Events turn when Po realises the meaning of the Dragon scroll. Only the Dragon Warrior
is allowed to read it. When Po unrolls the scroll it is blank. He sees only his reflection.
What can this mean? The revelation is that there is no secret ingredient to being the master, or to success. The main ingredient is YOU.
Believing in yourself is the secret ingredient.
Many people find this the hardest thing to achieve. Yet, you can do it when you
have the right tools. And I'm blessed to be able to help people find that belief within
And in the end. Po has the final fight with his nemesis.....and because he believes in himself ....he wins.
We can all win when we believe we can.
Have an awesome day!

Usually I'm the one hypnotising others...yet the other day a shop assistant used a language pattern that through me into a spin. Fortunately, she didn't realise what she had done and she didn't have the knowledge to utilise the state she had put me in.
It was such an unusual experience. I went into the shop, confident that I knew what I wanted to buy. A Mac Book Air. I'd been a PC user long enough and I was ready to change.
After sitting down, telling her what I wanted she came back with this statement "You know it doesn't have a disk drive, don't you?" It was unexpected. For whatever reason it threw me out of kilter in my pattern of thinking. She just created confusion within me. If it was me, I would have built on that. WHat would I have done? mmm
Knowing that I was there to buy..well, you could add to the shopping list....add to the trance state.....take them on a journey to find out more about them....you could just about take someone from that state to where ever you wanted to go.
It was a fun experience to look back upon in retrospect. And, it provided a great learning opportunity. Isn't it true that you learn more from experience than from reading about an experience?
Listen to the language patterns being used around you and see if you can observe their impact on other people. Then practice them, if you want to.
Have a great week and enjoy what you learn.

If you've watched The Matrix movies you've probably heard that phrase before. But have you ever wondered what that means and how it relates to you?
When we observe people and what they do, we see that they live their lives in accordance with the belief systems that they have installed. The beliefs act like a thermostat. When they get too hot (outperforming to their beliefs) or too cold (underperforming to their beliefs) then the thermostat kicks in and brings them back to normal (whatever they perceive normal to be).
Can you identify that this may also happen in your own life? Maybe you believe that maybe you don't.
Have you seen people who believed that they are lucky? They same to fall on their feet in every situation, they might "be lucky enough" to see a $100 note on the path as they are walking. That fits in with their belief system. The belief system then impacts on perceptual filters so that they are looking for opportunity/good luck.
In contrast, the unlucky person who believes they are unlucky have set up their perceptual filters to exclude all opportunity and good luck to the extent of this belief.
Still not sure?
In my comedy hypnosis shows, the volunteers go through a number of situational changes in their beliefs. During the show their beliefs are suspended so that they can have other experiences - being a rick and roll star, a irish river dancer, forgetting their names, regression to an early age.
What would happen to your life if you could change your beliefs to those that support the life you would want to have?
Imagine the difference that would make? What would it be like?
Have a great day. Feel free to ask me questions.
