What is hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis for therapeutic benefit. People can be suspicious of hypnosis, imagining that they’ll lose control of their own actions and be forced into uncomfortable situations. In fact, hypnosis is a national and relaxing state of mind, and you can often reach a similar state by focussing completely on a film or book that you’re enjoying. Your hypnotherapist is there to guide your subconscious mind but never to force you, and you’ll be in full control at all times. You’ll feel deeply relaxed, both during and after hypnosis, and most people find the process very calming.

Have you heard that a doze in the daytime can give you diabetes? I don’t think it’s quite that – I read about it in the paper – they’ve found out about it in Japan  I think that the paper may have got hold of the wrong end of the stick.

Cannabis – a case study

  • October 6th, 2016

Craig* had rung me about stopping smoking.  Over the phone it hadn’t sounded too extreme at all.  It had started off as a social thing but he was increasingly smoking when he was on his own.  He smoked in the evenings and at weekends, but never at work.

A rubber glove and two paintbrushes are all you need for this experiment. It’s easy to do, but the result can be quite unnerving.
