New! Taster Sessions and Stress Less Feel Good

If you're feeling stressed and too busy to think straight this is for YOU! One hour with me for a deep relaxation hypnotherapy session!
If you're sceptical about hypnotherapy then this is an ideal way to "give it a try". I'll spend time explaining to you what I do (it's not magic but it is very powerful) and then you can experience half an hour of deep relaxation, stress relief and generally feeling good! And leave me feeling GREAT!
If you're a past client then you can have this session to get stress relief and deep relaxation anytime you want! Better and longer lasting than a massage!
£50 for new clients - including a Stress Relief CD to use at home.
Only £45 for past clients (who will already own the CD!)
Some hypnotherapists offer a personal consultation before you decide but who's got time to come in just for a chat! You're busy and and I'm busy so I'll talk to you for as long as it takes on the telephone, answering any questions you have. But the best way to experience hypnosis is to book a session. So why not come in and experience hypnosis and NLP now? Limited sessions available and this special price won't be around for long!
Call me on 0113 380 1758 to book.

The Weekly Blog! Still trying?

Well another week goes by! Snow, snow and more snow! Well it looks very pretty outside and I've been lucky that it hasn't stopped me getting to see my clients - or them getting to see me!
I'm off to Huddersfield this afternoon so watching the AA roadwatch CCTV cameras on the motorway very carefully until then! Isn't it wonderful that you can see what's happening on your route? Unfortunately, things can change so quickly as some idiot does something daft and causes an accident!
Some people will be finding it difficult to get out on the regular walks for fitness and weight loss in the snow and ice. This is why you need something in your home that can help you keep active! Exercise videos can be good - but what about just dancing around to the radio? Or running up and down stairs a few times? Or a bit of vigorous hoovering? Some of my clients have got the Wii machine (if you've got kids you may have the machine already) . You can get the Wii Fit and do yoga and balancing and if you're not used to exercise this is a great way to start.

I find my mini trampoline the best way of quick and easy workouts - some people like exercise bands - those long elastic bands that you can use instead of weights.

Whatever you do, do SOMETHING! It will help with weight loss, general fitness - and keep you warm!

Another week goes by...how's the New Year Resolution coming along?

Well it's been nearly a week since my last blog - so I must have been busy!

Many people reading this will have been busy too - busy trying hard to stop smoking or lose weight and keep to their New Year's Resolutions! Is this you? Well how about making it easy? No-one said changing your lifestyle had to be hard! It's not cheating to get a bit of help - especially if that means getting the results lots faster!

I've started a number of new weightloss clients in January - and they'd all lost weight (between 4lbs and 8lbs) by their second appointment two weeks later and will all have reached their goal weight by the end of 2009 - some a lot sooner.

Sometimes it's easy to get overawed by the amount of weight you want to lose so try this:
Assume just 2lbs a week weightloss (anything over 3lbs is water anyway). Some weeks it will be more, some well, life will happen and it will be less, but take 2lbs a week weightloss as your average goal. So that's half a stone a month. So how many stones do you want to lose? In 12 months you can lose 6 stones at that very steady rate! Some of my new clients will reach their goal by the summer, some will take longer - all will stay at their new goal because they will have changed their eating habits, exercise habits and lifestyles - for good! If you're ready to join them give me a call.

Here's a small tip to get you on the right path: Buy some raw almonds.

Almonds can lower cholesterol and help with weight loss They give you fibre, protein, and monounsaturated fats - and fill you up. Recent research from St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto showed that almonds minimize the negative effects of a processed carbohydrate meal - so if you're out and about and are still eating McDonald's or sandwiches for lunch almonds will help! In the study, men and women ate 50 grams of white bread, along with one, two, or three ounces of almonds. (A one-ounce serving is about 22 almonds.) Adding the almonds to the white bread prevented the rapid rise in blood sugar caused by eating white bread alone. What you're doing is bringing the glycemic load of the "meal" down by adding the almonds to the bread and it's the glycemic load of the meal (or, if you like the sugar in it) that needs to be kept low. Of course, this doesn't mean that if you eat almonds you can carry on eating white bread! But just occassionally, think on, stock up on almonds and make them your snack of choice.
