How do I work with you? 

I am totally client centred, very patient and caring and I have a highly self-confident disposition both in my therapeutic approach and my beliefs about what hypnosis can achieve for the individual. One of the cornerstones of successful hypnosis treatments is in helping the client get to that place where they too really believe that they can make that change with the assistance of hypnosis.

To quote a favourite proverb or two.

Faith can move mountains.

Whatever you believe, you can achieve. 

They may sound a little hackneyed, but they are universal truths and it's my job to help you with the creation of those beliefs !

For successful hypnotherapy treatment outcomes to take place, confidence and belief in the therapeutic process on the part of both the therapist and client working together are essential alongside an understanding of the nature of the problem and its root cause. I believe these are key essential ingredients of successful hypnotherapy. I have seen this for myself working alongside other professional hypnotherapists over and over again. From the very beginning I work with my clients to help them understand the root causes, how they might have happened and why they may be experiencing the limits, blocks and frustrations that are holding them back from living the life they want to live. From understanding comes progress and the ability to make change, walking from limitation frustration and darkness to freedom happiness and light.

Have you ever noticed how the best and most successful hypnotherapists such as Paul Mc Kenna achieve such successful results with their clients and subjects time and time again? It is because not only is he an expert in his field he is so confident in his own expertise and his ability to put his clients totally at ease and to help them understand how hypnosis works and to help them believe in the possibility of change that his results are so successful……

"The best therapists understand the importance of managing their clients expectations and belief is the cornerstone of helping clients to make the changes they seek"Trevor Wales.Dip Hyp BWRT

 I have a very passionate belief in the power of the mind and what hypnosis can achieve and I am very confident that hypnosis can produce profound changes in people to help them improve their lives. I am very confident in my abilities to help my clients anchor and strengthen their beliefs to make their desire for change a concrete reality. I realised a long time ago just how important it is for my clients successful treatment outcomes to put them completely at ease right from the beginning and project an air of confidence and assurance that strengthen and emboldens my clients belief systems that they have made the right choice in using hypnosis and have come to the right person, a true professional who understands them and who can help them overcome their problems and help them make the changes they want.

As you can see above, Successful Hypnotherapy treatments rely largely in part on the confidence of the client really believing that change IS possible and a therapist who is unable to build that belief in their client and project that confidence is unlikely to be able to help their client make that change. It’s a bit like getting in a taxi where the car is a bit of a beaten up wreck and the driver is uncertain of where they are going and how they are going to get there. You wouldn’t take that journey would you? You want a totally confident professional to get you to where you want to be. You would not put your trust in anything less.
My track record and success rates are very good and I have received great testimonies from my satisfied customers, which you can read here on my success stories link.

So what makes my hypnotherapy treatments deliver results they do?

At Trevor Wales Hypnotherapy Solutions each client is treated as an individual and as no two people are alike, my hypnosis scripts are personally tailored to suit your unique needs, to help ensure the right results for you.

From the outset of the consultation I will gather a lot of information to get to the root of the matter in order to make the best decisions as to how best to treat you so you can get the results you want. So you can expect quite a lot of questions and suggestions. This is because occasionally some clients come along who have other deeper issues which need resolving first before we can start working with the main suggestion therapy for it to be successfully accepted. Just like an onion we all have many different layers.

Another very significant factor which determines whether hypnotherapy will be delivered with maximum effectiveness so that the client gets the results they want is that the right type of hypnotic induction style needs to be established during the consultation. During this session I assess each client's basic personality profile to decide which style of hypnotic induction technique I will use that will yield the best treatment results for you.

I use a personality profiling technique pioneered by one of the UK's leading hypnotherapy and psychotherapy trainers, Terence Watts. His groundbreaking research and subsequent book, 'Warrior, Settlers and Nomads', establishes the fact that as no two people are alike, a totally unique induction style for each person is required to deliver the most effective result. Using this targeted method of hypnotic induction is one of the main reasons that my hypnotherapy treatments are so successful.

A person who is quite analytical and has difficulty in letting go control needs a completely different approach from the person who is quite flamboyant and outgoing as does the person who is very easy going and likes to be liked. If you want to know more you can take your own personality test by clicking on the link here and spending a few minutes answering some questions about yourself. The results may Surprise you!

I also incorporate NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and EFT (Emotional Freedom Therapy) into my treatment services which are highly recognized therapy tools which compliment Hypnotherapy treatments very well, giving me greater diversity in the treatments which I can offer my clients to help them on their individual journeys to successful life change. All of this ensures you the customer, that you will always receive the very best level of effective Hypnotherapy treatments. I hope I can look forward to helping with whatever it is that you would like to achieve.

 

 


 

Why letting go of limiting beliefs and fears is the only Path to healing and moving forwards

 


New Blog added 28th Oct 2016. Author. Trevor.R. Wales. Dip Hyp. GQHP. BWRT. 

Human beings have a great many qualities both positive and negative. We have the capacity to love and be kind and nurturing. We have the capacity for generosity and caring. As a species we are hard wired like many of the animal kingdom to be social and tribal. We are better as a collective working together. However, we have the need for individualism, our free will of self determination and to make our own choices.

We are as a species capable of great cruelty unkindness, greed and prejudice. These are just some of the negative qualities that human beings are capable of. We are in part driven by fear when we should be driven by love. Our subconscious is tasked with fight, flight or freeze and is there to keep us safe; however, our subconscious minds do not always work in our best interests.

The path to inner peace of mind begins by being brave enough to move forward taking one step at a time

Some unhappy people are in a prison of their own hatred and prejudice and the beliefs they hold about themselves and who they are. Some of those prejudices, dislikes, fears, hatreds may be born out of experience whilst some are generational beliefs passed on from generation to generation. The person who doesn’t question those beliefs is in reality living someone else’s perceived truth and not living their own lives through their own objectivity. We should in essence question everything done and judge things by our own ideals assuming we are strong enough to be of independent thought and reasoning. 

Some people will unknowingly subconsciously sabotage their own happiness and success because of what is going on beneath the surface. It’s not until a person is prepared to hold a mirror up to their soul and stare at the  true reflection they see staring and  then  decide to let go of what isn’t helping them in life that progress and change can be made. That change has to come from within. No one can help a person to change who isn’t brave enough to take the plunge. We can try to help people through kindness, listening, advice etc but ultimately the person who knows that they have a problem and who knows that in order to feel better and knows that they need to change is the only person who can make that change. Family, friends, professionals can ‘facilitate’ but change has to come from a deep desire and willingness to do whatever it takes.  Some people are strong enough to do this and work with what they see and challenge the unconscious beliefs and behaviours held deep and some people will freeze in the light of what they see and remain stuck in fear not wanting to let go because their pain is knowable and familiar and it is fear of letting go and what is on the other side that keeps them stuck.

Over the last ten years I have seen many people with all sorts of issues some of them very complex and difficult and there are some who remain firmly in memory, both successful clients who made the changes they wanted because they dared to expand their comfort zone and move forward and those who’s fears and difficulties with living with their presenting issue just kept them stuck, stuck and with the rigid belief that could never change..... like the person who on the day of coming to see me for quitting smoking , suddenly found they couldn’t go through with it because they were so very lonely and smoking was their only friend. Nothing we talked about could change the views held by this client and it was clear that this was a secondary gain for the client.

 If a client will not believe they have the capacity change then nothing a therapist can do within the boundaries of ethical working practices will help to break down the resistance if the secondary gain is so strong to create huge internal resistance in the mind.

I have had clients whose prejudices and limited thinking they have been bought up with from early childhood has made it so very difficult for them to let go and find the happiness they seek because those beliefs have stood in the way. Those beliefs can be challenged and together if the client is willing this is something that both therapist and client can work on together to resolve so that they can find new ways of seeing life and seeing possibilities.  

I once heard a story from a fellow therapist about a client who came from a family background where the family held very firm views about the Second World War and who were not inclined to try and see the bigger picture and move on. The story goes that this person grew up with a view that persons of a certain nationality were all the same and tarred with the same brush.... ..that was until they met someone of that very nationality and who on first sight they were deeply attracted to and who subsequently fell head over heels in love. For this person that created a huge inner conflict that went beyond their own inner boundaries and which no doubt meant that difficult choices had to be made within the family. The relationship floundered and failed and the person was left scarred and heartbroken. At that point they realised they had to change and went on to seek help from a therapist to work through their issues and learn to see the world in a different way. A few years went by and the couple met again and the flame of love was rekindled. That person is now married to that person with a family of their own and moreover the prejudices held by that persons family was healed and dissolved . Sometimes it is only in letting go that our own true happiness can be found.  

Some of those people who could not move forward had issues which clearly held them back from moving forward such as believing that nothing could fix them  and some didn’t like themselves at all which is a very sad situation. I’ve had people who really hated themselves believing that they were useless and somehow less than worthy because of all of the experiences they have gone through in life..... perhaps with abusive relationships where their core identity had been eroded .. These situations have a tendency in today’s society to be supposed that it is within the framework of a partnership or marriage or just the persons fault through their own bad attitude but in fact in my experience it can non of those and can be events as far back as childhood with volatile dysfunctional family life and parents who abuse and bully and who project their own fears and limitations upon their children such as telling them that they are not as good as other siblings or telling them that their birth was a mistake and that they should never have been born for example. The behaviour a small child experiences in their young years can have far reaching consequences into adult life.

It’s also true to say too that some situations with how people view themselves, looking within can be born of experiences in adult life, workplace bullying whether in the private or public sector for example which can really erode a person’s confidence and belief in themselves. Over the years I have encountered a few ex armed forces service personnel whose experience in the forces caused them a great deal of personal inner conflict but if the will and desire is there progress can be made to find a better state of mind and feeling. ~
At the end of the day it is only in letting go of the past that a person can move forward.
The journey may well have its difficulties, its twists and turns, its setbacks and triumphs but it is only being brave enough to put one step in front of the other and taking the plunge that the journey into a better state of mind can be achieved.

How hypnotherapy changed my clients life and how my client lost two stone in weight


New blog added 24th Oct 2016

 

At the foot of this blog is the latest progress report from one of my weight management clients I have been working with over the last few months. 
When my client came to see me they had been stuck as far as slimming went. They had been on various diets none of which consistently worked for them. When this client came to see me they knew two things.
Number 1. They knew that because of the failed diets they had been on before that their thinking had to change.
Number 2. They knew that the root of their problem lay in their eating HABITS. You see a lot of people eat when they are feeling down to help themselves feel better or they will eat when bored for something to do.

To succeed and lose weight, my client knew they had to change dramatically in their thinking and habits because everything else had failed. What my client had learned to understand is that the subconscious part of our minds has the greater control over our conscious minds and they understood that working with hypnosis and bypassing the conscious mind it was possible the create changes at the subconscious level where all of our beliefs and habits are formed. 
They understood where their inner conflict lay and the very thing that they did differently as to what most people who yo-yo diet all through their lives, going from one diet to another, is that they came to the consideration of using hypnotherapy with a completely open mind.

 

Why has my client been so successful?
One of the first things which was immediately apparent is that my client had some self esteem issues and I explained that in order for progress to be made the foundations had to be put in place and this is where we started. I also explained that this weight management programme was unique and custom tailored and needed to be taken very seriously and that everything I advised them to do in the pursuit of becoming healthy and fit need to acted upon without fail. This they did!  They joined a gym, took regular exercise even at the end of a busy day, they went for regular long walks, they now Skip regularly (Did you ever see a fat Boxer?) More importantly they changed what they eat and keeping a daily food and exercise diary was pivotal in helping them to create their success.

Not so long ago I received a message on facebook which said this:-  

"Hi Trevor. Just wanted to share some success with you... I've just done a double dance fitness class. The first one was strictly steps which copies some of the dance steps from strictly. Very good exercise and was sweating by the end if the first dance! This class lasted 1 hr. Then second class was zumba... lots of movement and cardio exercise. Again this lasted 1hr. So this evening I have completed 2hrs of exercise.... My instructor has said I should try Zumba extreme (advanced class!) As lots of the newer people are copying me :) Absolutely shattered but very happy. Before I started hypnotherapy my evenings would be sat on sofa watching telly and eating fast food... never would I have thought that I would be able to complete 2 hrs of exercise in 1 evening. When I first went Zumba I was out of breath within minutes and thought I wouldn't make it though the class... now I'm being asked to go advanced class and doing back to back classes. Thank you very much and see you on Saturday. "

Hypnotherapy was the key to helping my client access their own best inner resources and change not only what they eat and the way they eat and to make regular exercise a part of their daily routine. Hypnotherapy helped shift their ideas and behaviours towards certain foods. It also helped them change their beliefs about themselves and who they are and how they feel in themselves. Hypnotherapy is a skill that can help access the subconscious mind and help clients create strong personal behavioural changes that are in line with their deepest desires and beliefs   

At the beginning like most people my client probably thought that their behaviours and beliefs around eating habits and their views on food were 'unique' to them with their problem of not being able to get their weight under control..... and for most, when people have problems that they can't seem to solve, the thought that they must be the only ones with that problem tends to be human nature and so they try hard and fail and then try harder and harder and still fail and they come to think they must be the only one stuck in this way and perhaps think there is something wrong with them even though there are most likely thousands of people out there with the same problem.

When we are stuck with a problem, because we tend to focus on it a lot, it becomes big and we tend to think we are the only ones experiencing that problem. We try harder and harder and what we find is that the harder we try the harder it is to achieve.

What is happening is in fact the law or reverse effect. This law was conceived around the turn of the twentieth century by Emile Coue, a French psychologist and pharmacist who introduced a popular method of psychotherapy and self-improvement based on optimistic autosuggestion.The father of autosuggestion referred to it as the "Law of Reversed Effort." Coue's law stated, "whenever there is a conflict between the will (conscious effort) and the imagination (mental imagery), not only do we not do that which we wish, but we do the exact opposite." When one thinks that he would like to do something but feels he cannot, then the more he tries the more difficult it becomes. 

This is where the unique power of hypnosis comes into play where we can reprogramme me the subconscious mind..... I will say no more now but let my clients words speak for themselves:-

"Morning Trevor. I hope you're well. I've just weighed myself, fist time in couple of weeks. And good news, I'm now 17 10. This means I have lost 2 stone since starting with you. I'm very very happy with this progress. Going to work extra hard to get to 16 stone asap as 17 is my unlucky number! Have a great day. Thank you"
