Lower your Golf HandicapThey say 90% of golf is in the mind so if you want to lower your handicap, take your game to the next level and enjoy it more then you need a great mental attitude on the course.

I am a Buckinghamshire based hypnotherapist and have designed hypnotherapy sessions specifically for golfers helping them to achieve success and gain confidence during a round. The yips can be eliminated; your short game can be improved as well as your driving, fairway, wedge and bunker play.

Hypnosis is a receptive and focused state of awareness which helps to promote learning and retention of new ideas. This very natural state can be utilised to bring about positive changes in the way you think about your shots and game of golf. Free consultations are available.

Stop Smoking The Milton Keynes Citizen has run a competition for me to win a Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy session.

Gastric Hypno BandChanelle Hayes doesn’t need to lose weight as far as I’m concerned and she certainly doesn’t have the recommended BMI of around 30 or more to benefit from having a Hypno-Band but apparently she really wants either a real gastric band fitted or a virtual gastric-band. You can read about her thoughts here:- www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1385189

If you do have a BMI of around 30 or more and would like a free consultation please visit my website for more information:- www.hypno4weightloss.co.uk

Fears and phobias can be eased or dealt with entirely using hypnotherapy. I use a combination of suggestion therapy and NLP to help clients. I have helped people with fear of driving, insects, flying, public speaking and dentists, along with many others (maybe the most unusual being frogs). For more information on fears and phobias visit the relevant page of my website: – http://www.thehypnopractice.com/fears-phobias.htm

Here is a testimonial from one of my happy clients:-

“When I first came to see you, I was almost 50 years old and so terrified of driving that I couldn’t even think about being behind the wheel without feeling ill. I was embarrassed to not hold a driving licence but there was no way I could get into a car to drive. You quickly got to the root of the problem in one session. I was amazed and impressed. There was a huge problem right in front of me that I hadn’t even realised. Thankfully you managed to guide my thinking into better ways in just one session. In the weeks following our hypnosis session, I started to be more comfortable with the idea of driving and then decided to give it a go and book a lesson. Only a few weeks later my instructor tells me that I’m a very good, safe driver and well on the way to passing my test. In the 20 years before my hypnotherapy session with you, I couldn’t even think about a test! Weirdest of all – I really like driving now! How amazing is that?” Marian Martin, Milton Keynes

Childbirth Anxiety

When an expectant mother is anticipating discomfort during the birth process, stressor hormones such as adrenaline, epinephrine or norepinephrine are released. These will be travelling around her body in large amounts prior to and during labour. On a subconscious level she is expecting discomfort.

If she cannot flee or flight then her only other means of defence is to freeze. Blood is then channelled away from her uterus (as it’s obviously not used for defence) and the arteries surrounding the uterus are subjected to a restricted flow of blood and oxygen. Instead of the usual relaxed, easy flowing movement of the muscles around the uterus, the lack of blood and oxygen will result in shortened, tighter muscles in the areas most essential to the progress of the birth i.e. the muscles used to thin and open the cervix.

These muscles criss-cross the outer and inner uterus walls, the lowest ones responsible for stretching and widening the cervix, the opening through which the baby will descend; the uppermost being responsible for a downward pressure on the baby’s bottom, which in turn presses down on the cervix as a means to further thin and widen, to aid the birth process. Starved of sufficient oxygen, those muscles are under-performing, slowing the birth process and adding to the level of discomfort due to their inefficiency.

It makes sense then to suppose that in a situation where the mother is relaxed and looking forward to the birth, there will be more synergy between the muscles and the birth process will become faster, easier and will result in a significant reduction in discomfort.

By being relaxed during childbirth, the body responds in a very different way to the fear scenario described above. When we are relaxed, our breathing is even and rhythmical; ensuring a high level of oxygen is entering our bloodstream. This oxygen goes through to the baby, ensuring he/she remains calm and stable.  Increased oxygen stimulates the production of Oxytocin (the hormone responsible for birthing waves) and endorphins. Blood pressure remains at healthy level; and as the body is limp and relaxed the mother is able to conserve her energy; with all excess energy being channelled through to the muscle that is really working hard, namely the uterus. As the uterus has no resistance or tension from surrounding muscles, the contractions are more effective and more comfortable. As childbirth progresses unhindered by artificial hormones, other natural hormones kick in to aid relaxation, which allows the cells of the birth canal to relax, soften and stretch, so making the baby’s descent easier.

If you are local to Milton Keynes and are expecting a baby and want to be calm and feel in control during labour, read details on my website about Hypno-Birthing. www.hypno4childbirth.co.uk
