  1. Footloose and sleeping soundly with Hypnosis

    Kevin Bacon Hypnosis for insomnia

    Speaking to Women’s Health Magazine, the actor Kevin Bacon, who is perhaps best known to the younger generation as the star of mobile phone adverts talked all about his problems with getting a good night’s sleep and how he found out that hypnosis was the best way to learn to switch off and sleep soundly.

    Six degrees of Kevin Bacon being mindful and meditating

    “I recently started exploring hypnosis apps, at first because I was having trouble sleeping, and it helped me with that. Then I started to see a hypnotherapist to see what it was like to actually do it with a person. I find hypnotism to be really fascinating and powerful—in terms of health, sleep, and relaxation, but also in terms of happiness and inner peace. There was a cool thing that happened where I was guided to watch another version of myself going down the street. The exercise was to kind of walk into yourself and join yourself. The message was about being accepting of who you are and not trying to reach for something outside of yourself. It was powerful.”

    Like many people he tried online methods to listen and they can be a great introduction to letting go of your worries.

  2. How did I get this irrational fear? Can I let go of my Childhood Phobia?

    fears and phobias from childhood

    Here is a BBC Radio Interview I recently did to talk about fears and phobias from childhood.

    So many people who come to see me with fears and phobias say to me "This will sound silly", or "I feel stupid" but the truth is that no fear or phobia sounds silly or stupid to me. We can pick things up as a child that seem to defy rational belief. Once we find out where they came from then it can be easy to let go of them. Somtimes we don't even need to know where they come from, although of course finding out can make a real difference to our understanding of why we may have them.

    In this radio interview we explore some of the listeners fears and phobias and look at how they can let them go. From a fear of Sharks coming up through the toilet to Grass, you may be surprised how common many fears and phobias are.
