    Katy Perry sings about Hypnosis to forget about an Ex.

    Katy Perry has had hypnotherapy for herself and in fact I wrote about the fact that she was seeing a hypnotist in the USA to help her with the break up of a relationship with John Mayer well that was back in 2014 and yet her new single “Never Really Over” hints at the fact that perhaps she needs a little more help to let go.

    Back in 2014 I wrote this.. Like many people at the end of the relationship she has struggled to find a way to move on and so Katy has turned to hypnotherapy to try and help her cope.

    "Katy was devastated when they broke up," a source told British magazine Grazia. "But she is a firm believer in alternative therapies and she wants to wipe him from her life for good, so she decided to see a hypnotherapist. She wants to retrain her brain to prevent John coming back."

    She reportedly used the treatment after her marriage to comedian Russell Brand ended in 2011 so she already knows how well hypnotherapy techniques work for her. 

    Katy, 29, and John split on a couple of occasions during their two year courtship, but she took him back both times. However she is said to be determined to stick to her latest decision.

    "They had talked about marriage and she seemed to think he was a changed man, so she is beyond gutted, she doesn't want to find him attractive anymore."


    In the song she sings about her thoughts of dealing with an on-off relationship.

    “I guess I could try hypnotherapy

    I gotta rewire this brain

    ‘Cause I can’t even go on the internet

    Without even checking your name”

    It’s actually a very common thing that people come and see me about. With so much social media around it can be tempting to check out what your ex is doing and see the pictures of them and their new life.

    Perry sings about “losing self-control” in the lyrics to the song when she starts thinking about an ex and says,

    “Two years, and just like that 

    My head still takes me back

    Thought it was done

    but I Guess it’s never really over 

    Oh, we were such a mess 

    But wasn’t it the best?”

    The song mentions her dabbling in hypnotherapy because she has to “rewire this brain,” admitting she “can’t even go on the internet without even checking your name.”

    Back in the olden times we couldn’t do this kind of thing, so perhaps that does make it easier to move on after a split. The problem is that you are not moving on if you keep on wanting to know what your ex is up too. It really isn’t helping you to stop the thoughts of them popping into your head when you keep putting them in there yourself.

    If you want to know more about how hypnosis can help you with those bad memories..it isn’t about forgetting them, it’s more about breaking the emotional link. You can read all about that here:


  2. Why do we have weird and obtrusive and inappropriate thoughts?

    Have you ever been somewhere up really high and just wondered about jumping off and what would happen.

    Or have you ever stood on the side of a train track and wondered about if you could jump in front of a train, or even what would happen if you pushed someone else off the platform ?

    Maybe you have been driving a car and the idea has flashed into your head about driving straight into incoming traffic or off a bridge.

    Sounds crazy doesn’t it. It all sounds quite scary. But if you have then you are not alone and you are not really going mad.

    Here's my latest video that shows you exactly what is going on and why you don't need to worry about those thoughts. You can watch it right here...


    So, what’s actually happening? Well, all of our thoughts have to come from somewhere. They are based on our experiences in life and what path we want to take as we move forward.

    So, in order for us to decide what we want to do, what we want to happen ,we have to think about what we don’t want to happen.

    Imagine that the dragon from game of thrones was Pink and fluffy and had rainbow coloured wings.

    You don’t need me to show you a picture though do you? You can already imagine it for yourself.

    You didn’t know you were going to think about a pink rainbow dragon but now you are thinking about one. I made you do it just like advertisers may make you think about things. Things that you didn’t know you wanted.

    I really fancy some Pringles or a coke.. do you as well now?

    So our unconscious mind is thinking of all sorts of things. It wants to keep us safe. This is so that we can rule them out and not do them. So, pretty much everyone may find they get thoughts that seem a bit random and even inappropriate

    It’s just your brain thinking... do I want that or not?  It’s a bit like if you start to wonder if you fancy your best friends wife..or husband.  Or both!  It doesn’t mean you are going to do anything. You are just processing everything and deciding what is the right path for you.

    So of course this stuff can actually be really beneficial because it helps us to decide to step away from the platform or not to get to close to a really high edge. It keeps us safe.

    Sometimes when we think about what we don’t want then it helps us to think about what we do want.

    Spend more time thinking about the stuff you want to happen and then you can make that stuff more likely to happen.

    So don’t fret about those weird thoughts. Just think about what you really want to do rather than what you don’t want to do and all will be great.
