The cage door is open

The caged bird is a metaphor often used in literature representing those who have lost their freedom…the kind of freedom I want to talk about is freedom found within regardless of adversity, circumstance or environment.

Often a perceived freedom, freedom from a relationship, from a job, from conforming to conventional ways of living and the lure of greener pastures, the promise of change to our circumstances may appear to be the solution to that situation.

But what if the solution is a lot closer to home, within you and you just don’t know it yet?

On the eve of another New Year, I am reminded of Thomas Hardy’s poem The Darkling Thrush, who on 31st December 1899 amid the grey sky and bleak landscape, unphased by the inclement  weather that had ruffled his feathers, the aged bird chose to fling his soul//Upon the growing gloom and when he used his innate talent, his song, to project his happy out on to the world, that joy was felt by all.

So little cause for carolings 
      Of such ecstatic sound 
Was written on terrestrial things 
      Afar or nigh around, 
That I could think there trembled through 
      His happy good-night air 
Some blessed Hope, whereof he knew 
      And I was unaware. 

We are often mistaken for believing that our environment, people, places and things are what create our experience, but it is actually the way you think about those things that creates your experience and perspective of the world. The thrush was not phased by his gloomy environment but chose instead to look within and project his beautiful song out to the world and in doing so experienced joy and offered a new sense of hope.

I have had the privilege of witnessing amazing transformations in clients this year, who through their courage to embrace their best self have been able to let go of those things that have caused them pain – and have found freedom in doing that. Now, they are living a healthier and happier reality – one of their own creation.

When we experience even the smallest shifts we form new understandings and new perspectives and that’s when we realise that the door of that cage is open – and the freedom that we discover within is the love, joy and peace that we project on to the world.

Do you hypnotise swans?

It was a Schindler’s list type moment the day ‘Hypnotherapy 4 Swans’ was born.
I was sitting in Glasgow airport, having attended another training weekend, when I was contemplating who my ‘ideal client’ was. Crowds of people were rushing past me, going about their busy lives and that’s when it struck me…

Swans! Graceful on the surface while paddling furiously below the surface.
I had often been described as swan like myself, in my old marketing and event management days, and I know this way of being well – juggling the pressures of a professional life, while also trying to manage home life. It occurred to me then how many people are being ‘swans’ in our fast – paced world.

So, I don’t hypnotise swans – but I do de-hypnotise people using a large toolkit of positive psychology and mind coaching including Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and hypnosis.

I have been training, alongside my husband, for 4 years. We seek out the best in the industry to improve our skill, we read daily, watch videos and listen to podcasts. Mindfitness is a passion and watching the transformation in people is magical.

Now a Licensed Master NLP Practitioner and Hypnotherapist, I have worked with over 400 clients, I have developed a Transformational Change programme that is highly effective with clients by re-patterning their mindset and enjoying the benefits of that in an average of 3 sessions; I have written and delivered a natural weight loss programme with clients losing up to 105Ibs and transforming their relationship with food and also a Sleep programme for children where clients have reported their child who refused to sleep was now asking to be taken to bed within days.

My coaching is a partnership between me and my client. Each programme is as unique as they are and their circumstances at the time. Each session is about letting go and building on new and existing resources to create new ways of thinking, feeling and behaving that will help them lead a happier, healthier and more successful professional and personal life.

Since starting my full time practice in 2017 I have been shortlisted in two awards: Healthcare Provider of the Year, Exmouth Chamber of Commerce and Best Sole Trader/Micro Business, 373 Awards.
