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.

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 :)

That’s the old saying by Henry Ford. It came back to mind as I was on my morning run yesterday. The weather was a little cool at 5.30am, (Gold Coast 15C, cool...not cold).
The sky was dark and I was already procrastinating on my 8klm run. I kicked my self into gear, got moving eventually and headed across the road to the beach.
Funny how the mind can try to trick you. From the moment I began to run the thoughts kept coming....you can turn back and exercise at home.....your ankle is sore....it doesn’t matter if you skip a day....and so on....
It would have been easy to turn around and go home.....and it was also easy to keep going. The only thing required was to reframe the meaning of the morning run. The same is true for any endeavour in life. We can choose to give in or we can choose to persevere.
So how did I reframe the run? I thought about the reasons for running...like... Small things each day make big things happen....ie you dont get fit in a day, its repetition and consistency in training...the right training in whatever it is you want to achieve.
The other helpful tool from an NLP angle is to change your perception...what I mean is I moved myself to imagine looking at the run from its completion and look back on the run. This way I could focus on the rewards I gained from doing the run. Such as, that feeling of accomplishment from having run 8klm...and knowing I did something positive for myself at the beginning of the day....having more energy and being pumped....
Looking at the run from the end gave me a new perspective on the run and it became easier to do...in fact while going through these things i found I was already half way through the run and it was time to turn back and make the run home.
What do you think you could do if you changed your perspective and made things happen because you persevered?
I’d love to hear your feedback.

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.

It happens to most people who are go on diets.
1. They start the latest fad diet.
2. They starve themselves.
3. They lose some weight.
4. They stop the diet or get distracted.
5. The weight comes back and even more.
Why is it so?
Firstly, it is based on willpower not belief. Willpower only accounts for about 5% of change. The problem is that most people don't have the rigid discipline required to consciously focus on their diet 24/7. Secondly, you are working against the life force of nature.
That may sound a little grandiose and here is how I understand it to work. The physical act of starving yourself, as well as your mental approach that you are starving yourself sends an almighty powerful message to your unconscious mind (the world of your beliefs and emotions). And that message is - WARNING, A FAMINE is in progress.
The unconscious mind reacts by storing every gram of fat in places where you do not want it and on top of that, sucks every little bit of fat of the few things you have left to eat.
Then as soon as you lose focus, you go back to your old eating habits just like a stretched rubber band snaps back and bites you. So you go on a diet and off the diet and on the diet etc etc.
What are you supposed to do?
That is where the reprogramming the unconscious mind comes in. Changing you on the inside to change you on the outside. With the unconscious mind letting go of old beliefs and taking on new ones ...you will become thinner!
You can join me for a 4 hours hypnosis workshop to help you learn how to get thin while you sleep. Sat Nov 30 at Currumbin, Qld, Australia

That's an interesting question and one I hear repeated often. A number of people have asked me if it really works.
The short answer is ...... YES. - The longer answer is the "how" it works.
Over recent months quite a number of people, mainly women, have attended my
"Weight Reduction Hypnosis" workshops.
You may be asking "What happens in that workshop?"
Well, basically, I deal with the beliefs that they have about themselves, food and exercise. The major issues that are absolutely consistent are
1. emotional issues
Quite often, an emotional event in the past has triggered a protection mechanism and so a sort of physical shield - excess weight - is created.
Beliefs precede thoughts which precede words which precede actions. If there are negative beliefs floating around then they will show up in results - in this case.....fat.
Nearly every person coming to my workshops has a focus on getting rid of fat. SO, while they are focused on fat.....they get more of the same. This is because we tend to realise what we focus on.
You should see the reactions when I start working on these areas. Initially there is shock...and then acceptance that they can change when they work through these issues.
and ....the magic happens....here is the feedback from one woman who came to my workshop....speaks for itself......
If you want this change.....then commit to change....
Have a great day.....send me a message if you want to know when I'm having my next workshop or to get the [email protected]
