Mexborough Business Centre, the new home of Alexandra Hypnotherapy

I am delighted to announce that Alexandra Hypnotherapy is moving to a beautiful new office suite.

From Wednesday August 16 2017, I will be seeing clients in the lovely surroundings of Suite F14 of the Mexborough Business Centre on College Road, Mexborough, S64 9JP.

It is super-easy to find and is only just up the street from my current space at the Resource Centre.

The new office of Alexandra Hypnotherapy within the Mexborough Business Centre

You can find my new office here

There is plenty of free parking in the car park, or you can park on the street.

It’s light, airy, spacious, comfy and very quiet!!! And I know you’ll just love coming to see me there.

So that’s even more reason to book yourself in and start seeing awsome changes in your life.

Best wishes,

Alex

One great way to handle your anxiety

One of the big recurring themes in my clinic recently has been anxiety.

It’s that horrible stomach-churning feeling of dread of something which may or may not happen.

Sometimes it comes out of the blue; sometimes it’s a constant feeling; often it comes with added panic.

I am seeing a lot of people for anxiety currently and I’m seeing some common themes.

These include fear of being looked at and/or judged; fear of embarrassment/humiliation and a fear of not being able to cope with something and having an anxiety/panic attack. Effectively, a fear of fear.

These things can all be swiftly resolved in hypnosis but I find myself using a particular phrase more and more with clients which seems to resonate and bring deep lasting changes.

It’s something that has stayed with me for years since reading the fantastic Susan Jeffers book “Feel the fear and do it anyway”.

It’s simply this: “Whatever happens, you can handle it”.

Remember that whatever happens you can handle it

Susan Jeffers’ Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway

You can. If you are in my chair in my office then you are living proof that one way or another, you have handled it, whatever it was.

You have felt that fear and you have survived it.

That’s right. Whatever happened, you handled it.

Now what if you could believe this in the core of who you are – that you are a person that, when the crisis comes, you will deal with it in whatever way your subconscious deems best for you? You might not like it, but you come through it and you can know deep down that if it ever were to happen again, you’ll survive it. In fact you’ll come through it better and stronger.

So my clients come to me believing that they’ve failed at life when in reality they’ve passed difficult, awful things, and they’ve come out the other side.

That’s not to say we can’t fix the dread (we can), but if you have anxiety and you need a belief to get you through, try this one: “Whatever happens, I can handle it”.

Best wishes,

Alex

Who needs “Friends” like these? Brexit venom poisonous to mental health

This last week saw the UK vote to leave the EU and unsurprisingly, some of the social media reaction has been extremely emotional.

A scroll through news on Twitter and Facebook has brought up a flood of posts with intense feelings, particularly of incredulity and extreme anger.

We are fortunate enough to live in a democracy where freedom of speech is within our rights – but is it really okay to bully, shame and name-call people who voted a different way?

I’ve been horrified by what I’ve seen this week. Not by the shock result – but by the downright nastiness and cruelty from people towards their fellow human beings. And largely, this is from people whose “moral” stance suggests they should know better.

Now while politics has no place in a hypnotherapy clinic, the type of horrible behaviour I’ve witnessed this week is one of the Number One causes of the problems I do see every day in my treatment room.

I help people overcome the long-term effects of cruel words, jibes and insults – let alone all-out bullying and abuse – repeatedly, every single day.

Now to the untrained eye, the obvious issues that stem from these behaviours are shattered self-esteem and chronic low self-confidence. And I see people for just these issues alone daily.

After all, how do we imagine someone would feel after being called “stupid” and “ignorant” and much much worse?

Some people may be able to bat these remarks off, but to others, they burrow inside, lay eggs and thrive… And then they turn into anxiety problems, social anxiety, panic attacks, fears, phobias, paranoia, depression…

In short, they turn into big life-ruining problems.

But that’s just for starters. It frequently manifests in weight problems, relationship issues, habits, addictions, performance in all things.

You see our levels of confidence in ourselves are at the heart of everything we do. If we believe we can do something, we can do it. If we doubt ourselves because we’ve come to believe the nonsense about being stupid and believe we can’t, then we can’t.

Insults, jibes, bullying, abuse can have an insidious effect on a person’s psyche, which can destroy a person mentally in so many ways.

From the anxious teenager who was too scared to go to school from online abuse, to the unfulfilled ambitions of the full-time mum was once told she would never amount to anything, to the pensioner too anxious to hold a conversation with acquaintances because of a single taunt 50 years before. I have helped them all in just the last week – and that’s without going into the case of the mum having panic attacks from watching the news.

If these people who are all so busy calling others stupid,  ignorant and even OLD, over a vote they had a democratic right to cast, thought for one moment about the impact these remarks – both generically and personally – caused, would they still make them?

We can only hope not. So please, let’s start being nicer to each other. My mum always told me: “If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all.”

She also says: “Empty vessels make the most noise”.  :p

If you want help to overcome any of the issues raised above, then I’d be very happy to see you for that free initial assessment session. Simply contact me by email, text, phone or my contact form, or just book yourself in online in a slot that suits you. We’ll have a good chat and get you on the road to feeling better.

Best wishes,

Alex

Welcome to the new look Alexandra Hypnotherapy website

 

If you’re a regular visitor to this site, you might have noticed a few changes in recent weeks.

I’ve made some subtle changes to improve some features on the site – including adding an option for you to now book yourselves in online.

My existing clients know I’ve been running this system for some time, but now for the first time, you can access my booking system straight from the web, rather than needing to be invited via a link.

This means it’s now even easier than before to see what’s available and pick a time to suit you.

Of course, I’m still more than happy to speak to you first and answer any questions before you go-ahead and book. And I can still book you in myself if that’s easier for you.

You can access my booking system here.

Regular visitors may also notice that my previous blog posts have disappeared. That’s because I’ve changed blog hosts but I’ll be sure to keep this page regularly updated with news and features.

That’s all for now.

Best wishes,

Alex
