Newsroom star Olivia Munn Used Hypnotherapy to motivate herself to exercise

The 'Magic Mike' actress claims she only started working out a year ago when she went to a hypnotherapist who motivated her to hit the gym every morning at 6am - and she has been doing it ever since. She originally attended the hypnotherapy session for help her with her trichotillomania - a condition where a person feels compelled to pull their hair out. 

She explained in an interview with cosmetics guru Bobbi Brown for Yahoo! Beauty: "I used to never exercise because I just hated the idea of all of it. But I saw this hypnotist (I have an OCD called Trichotillomania) and in one session he threw something in about working out and by the next week I was up every morning at 6am. "I've been working out consistently ever since, and it's been almost a year now." 

Olivia also revealed she invented her own diet which involved only eating meals where she could see every single ingredient. She said: "In 2009, I lost 16 pounds in two months because I came up with my own diet which was if I can't see it I can't eat it. If I go to a restaurant and say I'll have the soup, I can't see every single ingredient they put in - how much salt? How much sugar? "I can't see it unless I make it myself at home, so that takes away breads and other hidden ingredients." 

While Olivia admits she sometimes feels insecure about her Chinese heritage, she thinks it's important to change the all-American standard of beauty. She explained: "When I was younger, what I saw as the face of beauty was very standard all-American white blonde hair blue eyes. "So any time I feel uncomfortable, or I wish something was different, I just have to wash it away because I have to be a role model for my niece, and if I have daughters be role models for them and be comfortable with myself."

In all areas of life, be it sports, business or just having a happy life the most successful people are often the most motivated. It is especially important to have clearly defined goals to achieve what you want. Hypnotherapy can help by allowing you to focus your mind on your goals.

If you feel you need to constantly find ways to motivate yourself then it's likely your goals are not well enough defined. A goal of becoming more motivated is not good enough. If you have a goal of achieving something specific in your life then the motivation will probably take care of itself. 

Hypnotherapy can help with motivation whether it be for sports performance, exercise, weight control, studying, career development or even just motivating yourself to develop a more positive outlook.

Retired Woman Uses Hypnotherapy to Beat Chocolate Addiction and Lose 7 stone

An ex-chocoholic from Litherland, Merseyside has shared an interesting story on how she managed to beat her addiction to sweets and chocolate using hypnotherapy.
Janet Tansley, 63, resorted to hypnosis after becoming worried about the amount of sweet treats she was consuming every day.  
Ms Tansley admitted to she was starting to feel "desperate" after becoming hooked on chocolate during her time working at a vending machine firm.
Janet would typically go through six chocolate bars every single day whilst picking at tins and selection boxes of her favourite brands.
After ballooning to 18 stone and with "absolutely no willpower", she sought the assistance of a trained hypnotherapist in a last-ditch attempt to fend off her demons.   
"I had tried other weight loss plans and, while I lost weight, I would always put it right back on. So I researched hypnotherapy for about a year and, eventually, my sister-in-law said 'go for it'," she told the Liverpool Echo.
Ms Tansley's addiction was treated using "hypnotic aversion therapy", which included  natural techniques like a 'hypnotic gastric band and mind management strategies.
As reported by www.miaminewtimes.com, this technique was used by Kate Middleton
in her battle against an acute aversion to food whilst suffering from morning sickness. 
Eventually, with the help of hypnotherapy and its various techniques, Ms Tansley managed to gain control of her habit and claims to have never touched chocolate since. 
She now weighs just 11st, goes swimming every day and says the whole experience has changed her life.

An Absolutely Fabulous way to get motivated

hypnotherapy for procrastination Get yourself motivated - Hypnotherapy for Procrastination

We all struggle from time to time to get going. Have you ever woken up and just not felt like doing a thing? Or maybe you know you should go to the gym but you just can't get yourself motivated - "I'll go tomorrow" or "I'm owed a rest" .

Working from home can be hard too- you find ways to distract yourself - "I'll just do the washing up before I start" or "I'll just have another coffee and then I'll get going". Before you know it the day has gone and you've have achieved nothing.

This is not new; Abraham Lincoln famously said “You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today". And Charles Dickens said “Procrastination is the thief of time; collar him” Of course collaring it is not always that easy to do or there would be no problem.

Procrastination is the big word used to describe this habit and hypnotherapy is being increasingly used to help all sorts of people stop procrastinating and motivate themselves. Believe it or not it's not just laziness that makes you procrastinate. There can be a variety of reasons including fear of failure, fear of success and even fear of the unknown.

Hypnosis is a tool that utilises a person's subconscious enabling them to create new habits and change their perspective on life. Internalising a new view of yourself automatically change your behaviour in line with this new perspective.

This can be helpful when you are trying to change your habits for things such as smoking. If you view yourself as a non-smoker, it just doesn’t make sense to have a cigarette. Your personal view yourself is largely an automatic process controlled by your subconscious mind. It makes sense then that if you can change the view held by your subconscious mind, then creating new habits becomes much easier. 

hypnosis  for motivation
In a revealing article written by Nick Clark for The Independent Jennifer Saunders reveals that she is using hypnotherapy to overcome her procrastinating habits and deliver the script for the long-waited Absolutely Fabulous big screen debut.  

Nick Clark writes: The big screen version of her hit television show “is going to happen”, she told an audience at The Independent Bath Literature Festival yesterday, adding: “I’m writing it now; I have a deadline for the treatment.”

Saunders also revealed that she plans to start appearing on comedy panel programmes after BBC bosses introduced a ban on all-male shows.

Revealing for the first time the extent of the struggle she has faced in writing the script for the planned film, first mooted in 2011, she said: “I am actually having treatment, hypnotherapy, for procrastination. It’s true, What my hypnotist said was to get rid of the backpack of negativity.”

The 55-year-old has a great incentive to finish the script this year: she’ll be out of pocket to the tune of £100,000 to her former comedy partner Dawn French if it isn’t finished.
“Dawn tricked me on the radio,” Saunders said yesterday. “She bet me £100,000 that I don’t write it this year, so I have to.”

The Silent Enemy - Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Hypnotherapy

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Hypnotherapy - The Silent Enemy
Hypnotherapy is being increasingly used to help people suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. When people suffer from PTSD their thought processes, reactions, actions, behaviours and emotional responses become conditioned to the trauma experience. For the healing process to be effective it’s helpful to look at these thought processes and negative behaviour patterns and retrain the brain. This is basically what an hypnotherapist does on a daily basis. 

The infographic below describes the Silent Enemy and the effect it has worldwide. For more detailed information click The Silent Enemy PSTD
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Hypnotherapy

Indeed in the therapeutic arena hypnosis is now being frequently used with trauma survivors because it is proving highly effective.
Look at these statistics fro the American Medical Association (AMA) which has officially recognized hypnosis as a valuable and beneficial treatment as applied and used since 1958. In “Psychotherapy” magazine (Volume 7, Number 1), various types of techniques were listed and profiled in a review of relevant literature by Alfred A. Barrios, PhD. The techniques that proved to generate the greatest success in providing lasting change were the following (listed in order of success rate):
Hypnosis93% recovery after 6 sessions (approx. 1 1/2 months @ 1 session per week).Behaviour Therapy72% after 22 sessions (approx. 6 months @ 1 session per week).Psychotherapy38% recovery after 600 sessions (approx. 11 1/2 yrs @ 1 session per week).

More on the Medical Profession and Hypnosis

The medical profession is embracing the use of hypnotherapy. In a fascinating article by Quincy Walters for “The Oracle” - the University of Florida magazine the author describes a fascinating account of how Doctor Shenefelt from the James A Haley Veterans' hospital uses hypnotherapy.

Dr. PhilipShenefelt, a professor at USF College of Medicine’s department of dermatology and a dermatologist at the James A. Haley Veterans’ hospital, sometimes uses an unconventional method to treat ailments ranging from uncontrolled chronic pain to weakened immune systems that make it hard for warts to go away: hypnosis.

But the technique is not quite the dangling of a locket in front of someone’s eyes that one may imagine.
The brain has four main states of consciousness: alert/awake, trance, dream and deep sleep,Shenefelt said. The trance state — or the state one may experience after reading a book or watching a movie and then realizing they can’t recall what they just saw — can be used to help facilitate hypnosis and treat several medical conditions.
There are misperceptions based on movies about the hypnotist controlling the person being hypnotiszed,”Shenefeltsaid. “It’s not a valid thing that happens with hypnosis. The term hypnosis has almost a pejorative scent to it.”
As a teenager growing up in Wisconsin in the 1960s, Shenefelt said he “had a curiosity” about meditation and hypnosis, and obtained several self-help books on both topics, but it wasn’t until the 1990s — a little more than two decades after graduating from medical school — that Shenefelt had the opportunity to learn the technique at a workshop held by the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis.
Usually conducted in an exam room, each hypnosis session lasts approximately 20 minutes.
Before entering the trance state, Shenefelt said patients usually hear the following words:
You’ll experience something where you will still be aware. And you will still have control, but your conscious will not—it will be set aside—and your subconscious will be in control. You can come out of trance at any time.”
Along the way, Shenefelt will help the person learn self-hypnosis.
There’s an eye roll technique that usually induces hypnosis in about a minute or less,” he said. “It requires some homework on the part of the person. The person needs to be motivated to allow hypnosis to give them their full effect.”
Shenefelt said he doesn’t use hypnosis as the first option, and sometimes hypnosis doesn’t work for all patients.
I use conventional treatments first,” he said. “If the conventional treatments don’t do enough then I consider an alternative treatment such as hypnosis. There are some people that get no benefit,” he said. “There are some that get tremendous benefit, and most people are in between.”
If hypnotherapy has been deemed the appropriate treatment option, he said, the therapy has to be conducted over the course of multiple sessions.
Typically you don’t rewire the nervous system with one session,” Shenefelt said. “It typically takes 30 to 40 times to change a habit or sensation.
Shenefelt’s patients vary in terms of age and ailment.
I see an age range in my clinic of infants to people in their 90s,” he said.
As long as the patient has the ability to understand language, they have the ability to be hypnotised, he said.
Dr. Eleanor Laser, a psychologist in Chicago, also utilizes hypnosis with her patients. She met Shenefelt at an American Society of Clinical Hypnosis conference a few years ago.
Together, they now co-present hypnosis workshops at conventions.
While Laser and Shenefelt practice in different fields of medicine, both experience cases that coincide.
Twenty years ago, Laser used hypnosis to help a patient break his smoking habit. Last year, she received a call from the same patient. He was experiencing a debilitating, prickly sensation in his feet; it was so bad, he couldn’t work. In an attempt to relieve the pain, he stood for hours in a bathtub filled with cold water and ice.
He went to multiple doctors, here in Chicago,” Laser said. “But no one could help him.”
He then met laser and mentally took her back to a recent vacation to the Dominican Republic. His mind took him to a specific restaurant, and he saw the menu.
I asked him to point to the item he ordered on the menu,” she said. “He ate the grouper.”
Grouper, she said, swim near a red coral reef that emits toxic poison that the fish absorbs.
You can’t cook it away.”
She diagnosed him with ciguatera, a foodborne illness. Laser called Shenefelt to tell him about the case
He didn’t believe her at first, she said.
Since she knew the problem, she was able to successfully use hypnosis to relieve the man of his symptoms.
Laser used a form of hypnosis called memory regression.
The purpose is to help the patient realize when the symptoms first manifested, and locate the origin on their body.
Take us back to where it originally started,” she tells her patients.
By finding the memory, she said she has the ability to “neutralize the memory and eliminate the symptoms.”
Both doctors co-authored and published a case study about the ciguatera diagnosis, and the successful hypnosis treatment.
It will be presented this March in San Diego at the national American Society of Clinical Hypnosis conference.
