Local practitioner urges smokers to quit for Stoptober

A North London based hypnotherapist is encouraging the public to look for practitioners registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) if they want to use hypnotherapy to help them give up smoking during Public Health England’s (PHE) Stoptober campaign.

According to the Royal Society for Public Health and the government-backed Professional Standards Authority (PSA), practitioners on Accredited Registers such as CNHC’s are an untapped resource who have a key role to play in supporting public health initiatives such as giving up smoking.

Commenting on the accredited registers workforce, PSA Chief Executive Harry Cayton said: “It is a vital network through which we can support behaviour change and ultimately improve the public’s health: whether it is signposting people to smoking cessation services or offering brief lifestyle advice on healthy eating, accredited registers practitioners are undoubtedly an unsung and instrumental part of the wider public health workforce.” [1]

Bridgette Mansfield Hypnotherapy says: “Hypnotherapy is often used to help clients achieve the behavioural change needed to stop smoking but it’s so important the public use someone who knows what they are doing. As a CNHC registrant my credentials have been checked so the public can choose with confidence.”

Bridgette has been helping people to quit smoking for 10 years.  Being an ex-smoker herself, she knows the relief that comes with being a non- smoker.  In just one session, you can become a happy non-smoker easily and effortlessly.

Bridgette Mansfield Hypnotherapy added that: “Hypnotherapy is one of 16 therapies registered by the CNHC. There are over 6,000 practitioners on the register and members of the public can search the CNHC register to find practitioners in their local area.”

  • Stoptober is a campaign run by Public Health England in partnership with local authorities and the NHS. The campaign lasts 28 days because the evidence says if you can stop smoking for 28 days you are five times more likely to give up for good. Details of the campaign can be found here: Stoptober – Public Health England
  • CNHC’s register is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care.
  • All practitioners registered with CNHC have demonstrated they meet UK-wide standards.
  • In October 2017 the Royal Society for Public Health and the Professional Standards Authority published ‘Untapped Resources: Accredited Registers in the Wider Workforce’, a joint report which highlighted the role that practitioners on accredited registers can and do play as part of the wider public health workforce.

Tips to reduce Stress

By | Anxiety / Panic Attacks, Emergency Hypnotherapy, Fear of Flying, HypnoBirthing, Hypnobirthing Enfield, Hypnobirthing North London, hypnosis, Hypnosis in London, Hypnotherapy London, Hypnotherapy North London | No Comments

Stress is the feeling of being under too much mental or emotional pressure, when you feel unable to cope, which can cause health problems

We all experience stress at one stage or another. It can be caused by health issues, money worries, constant worrying, loneliness, pressure at work, no work, lack of control, family problems, bereavement, divorce and many other reasons.  Stress is recognised to be one of the main causes of sick absence from work and it seems that more and more children are suffering with stress due to school or peer pressure.  However, a situation that feels stressful to one person may be motivating to someone else and this can be down to our past experiences, our leant behaviours, our thought processes and our own level of self-esteem.

So how can hypnotherapy help reduce stress levels……………..

Stress is caused by our subconscious protecting us.  We may go into a fight or flight response when we are in an uncomfortable situation.  Our subconscious can’t tell the difference between what is real and what we are imagining so it sometimes acts as if we are in a life threatening situation when in fact all we are doing is for eg. a presentation in front of 20 people or starting a new job!  We are then left with all this extra energy with nowhere for it to go.  This can leave us with feelings of stress, anxiety, anger, depression, frustration, insomnia and mood swings

Being stressed is a physical reaction as much as an emotional one. Stress is everywhere in our lives these days. You cannot change that, but you can change your reaction to it.  The aim is to find ways of managing stress and using it to our advantage

Self-hypnosis – tips for relaxation

Hypnosis is known to be a powerful tool to help reduce stress.  In fact, hypnotherapy for stress can be effective even after just one session

You can complement your hypnotherapy sessions with self-hypnosis at home.

1. Find a place where you can relax and be free of too many distractions e.g. your favourite chair, lying on your bed.

2. Take in a slow deep breath, imagining you are breathing in positive thoughts and feelings and then gently close your eyes.  As you exhale, relax your body as much as you can and blow away any worries, stress and negative thoughts.

3. Count down from 10 -1 with each deep breath, feeling yourself sinking deeper and deeper into the chair.  When you get to 1, imagine the most peaceful place for you, whether it’s a tropical beach, a beautiful garden or maybe your home.

4. Then repeat positive affirmations.  For eg.  I am calm…..I am relaxed…..I am in control

Whatever you say to yourself in your mind, make sure it is positive (so don’t say to yourself…I am not stressed… as the subconscious does not recognise the negative.)

After approximately 2 mins, you can count out 1,2,3, open your eyes and continue with your day.  I if you do this every day for two weeks, you will find that you start to think more positively.


Hypnobirthing – The Wise Hippo

By | Anxiety / Panic Attacks, Fear of Flying, Hypnobirthing Enfield, Hypnobirthing North London, hypnosis, Hypnosis in London, Hypnotherapy London, Hypnotherapy North London | No Comments

Hypnobirthing, the Wise Hippo Way is a fun, educational preparation class for pregnant women and their birthing partners.  Why a hippo you may ask?  Well, if a female hippo can go off and birth her babies easily and without a fuss, why can’t us human females do the same?

I absolutely love teaching this course as it enables women to actually look forward to the birth of their baby, rather than fearing it.  Hypnobirthing is not just about birthing babies, it’s empowering women to make the right choices for them and their babies.  Hypnobirthing is not against medical intervention, it’s against unnecessary intervention.

Wouldn’t it be great to look back at your birth experience as a positive one whether you have a natural birth without pain relief, a caesarean, an epidural or water birth.  Whatever turn your birthing takes, you will look back at it feeling in control.

Group classes are run on Saturday mornings or Tuesday evenings in N21 / Enfield

Top tips for Christmas

Top tips for Christmas

I love Christmas – watching the kids open their presents, spending time with friends and family, fantastic food, a tipple or two, singing on the karaoke, winning all the board games…I could go on but that’s enough about me!

However, sometimes this time of year brings over indulgence, arguments and having to put up with relatives you haven’t seen all year!

So here’s a few tips to help you to stay in control.  It’s all about moderation.  We all need to have fun and enjoy ourselves or life would be very dull.

  • For those of you who like to have a drink, make sure you have a glass of water in between each alcoholic drink.  Just doing this will not only stop you drinking as much but also keep you hydrated so the hang over won’t be so bad.
  • Have a glass of water before you put anything to eat in your mouth. This will help you to realise if you are actually hungry or just thirsty.
  • Only eat when you are actually hungry for food and not hungry for love, excitement or to overcome boredom or stress
  • Take a deep breath and relax your shoulders when in the company of someone who irritates you!  Don’t over react and cause an unnecessary scene!

The Many Uses of Hypnosis

By | Anxiety / Panic Attacks, Fear of Flying, HypnoBirthing, Hypnobirthing Enfield, Hypnobirthing North London, hypnosis, Hypnotherapy London, Hypnotherapy North London | No Comments

Hypnosis is most commonly associated with losing weight and stopping smoking. However, you can use hypnosis for many, many other things

For example, hypnosis can enhance your athletic performance. Not only can it be used to increase your self-discipline, it can be used to help you focus on your shot, your stroke, your accuracy (depending on the sport you are playing) to improve each little movement which in turn improves your overall performance. The results of using hypnosis for fitness and competition have proven amazing, making this a valuable training tool for athletes in all sports, at any level.

Hypnosis can be used for overcoming your fears. The fear of public speaking, social engagements, claustrophobia, stage fright, a fear of heights, flights, driving or spiders or snakes … these are all areas that can improve dramatically when hypnosis is administered by a professional hypnotherapist.

Then of course, hypnosis can help you to change your bad habits and behaviours such as nail biting, gambling, drinking too much alcohol, drug abuse, pulling your hair, picking your skin, nervous twitches, OCD,  procrastination, anger etc.

Relationships can be improved at home and at the work place by working on any issues that may be holding you back.  Hypnosis can be an excellent tool when applied to school work, studying, or academics in general by giving you the tools to calm your nerves and taking the edge off your stress.

Self confidence,  determination, motivation and concentration … pain control, depression, anxiety, social anxiety, memory improvement, healing, relationships, tension and stress – the list goes on…..hypnotherapy can help you to  overcome all of these issues which can open up an entire world of new opportunities.

Do you have any fears or phobias?

By | Anxiety / Panic Attacks, Fear of Flying, HypnoBirthing, Hypnobirthing Enfield, Hypnobirthing North London, hypnosis, Hypnotherapy London, Hypnotherapy North London | No Comments

Do you have any fears or phobias?

Do you fear flying? Scared of heights?  Scared of spiders?  Frightened of feet?  Afraid of appearing on stage? Terrified of trains? Petrified of presentations? Wary of water? Anxious around animals?  Dodging the dentist?

A fear of flying is a learned fear, which may stem from childhood (perhaps if the individual’s parents showed fear) or could have developed after experiencing a particularly terrifying experience (such as bad turbulence or the plane having to make an emergency landing). Fear of flying may also be caused by other fears and phobias such as claustrophobia, fear of heights or agoraphobia. Misunderstandings of the principles of aviation can fuel a fear of flying too.
Hypnotherapy can often really help individuals suffering from fears and phobias.  Hypnosis can be used to communicate with the subconscious mind and re-evaluate thinking patterns and behaviour. Hypnotherapy can also help an individual to relax and access a calm, focussed state of mind to help them control their fear.So why contact us?  No matter what you are facing, we are sure that we can help you.  We have a proven track record of success – just look at the testimonials .  We are friendly, informal, affordable and here to help, so no matter what your concern is – get in touch and we can have a no-obligation chat so you can “set yourself free”.
