Creating new habits, new pathways, with the help of the unconscious

When I work with clients, I put them into a deep state of relaxation, and then I access their unconscious minds. I say to them that it is the part that looks after them, and knows everything about them. Which is true, it is the control centre, if you will, and my task is to trace back the real underlying root cause of an issue and resolve it at source.

Very often, a client comes to me with very set beliefs – “everyone does that, don’t they” or “I’m never going to get better” or “that’s just the way it is”.
Well, actually, no. What we think, becomes our reality, because when we constantly think in a certain way, we are creating a pattern that the unconscious takes as an instruction, and does its best to create whatever it may be. It’s called a neural pathway and, like any pathway, the more you tread it, the more pronounced and ingrained it becomes.
Those of you who drive will understand – when you start driving a car, it seemed impossible to keep your hands on the wheel, then put one hand on the gear stick, have your feet doing different things on the pedals without looking, while keeping your eyes on the road and in the mirror – right?
But eventually it all became totally natural, you didn’t have to think about it.
That’s how habits are formed – it takes around three weeks to re-programme the brain into a new way of doing something (that’s why in the bad old days, cigarette companies would say in their advertisements “give it 21 days”).

The unconscious loves imagery which is why so much of my work with clients who are in that state of relaxation is done through visualisation. I use this technique, for instance, when “fitting” a hypnotic gastric band, or when helping people to give up smoking. I use it when I explore traumas that have impacted on clients in this lifetime. When I am going through the process of what I call “cord cutting” – cutting away negative emotions – I actually use a large pair of scissors. The sound of cutting, combined with the strong suggestion that I am cutting away what is no longer needed, is very powerful for the unconscious.

I use similar visual techniques to help people literally shape a new version of themselves, or to “turn down” the level of nagging pain they may be suffering. Because the unconscious responds to such visual suggestions, it is highly effective.

It is all about creating a new pathway to change the habit, the reality, and sometimes I will do just that. I will set up a roadblock, a fallen tree across the road or a diversion sign so that the client has to take another route – which turns out to be a far better way to go. The unconscious accepts the instruction more readily with the added benefit of the visual aid.

The unconscious really does control our reality – but we have the power to create new pathways, new ways of thinking and, therefore, new ways of being!

I work from Vinings Natural Health Centre in Haywards Heath; The Practice Rooms in Hove and a lovely stand-alone treatment room in  Ifield (Crawley).

I’m now working in Hove, actually!

I’m delighted to say that, as from September, I shall be available to see clients in the lovely setting of The Practice Rooms, in Church Road, Hove, East Sussex.
The treatment rooms are light, spacious and very comfortable, but they are on the first and second floors, so not suitable for those who cannot manage stairs.
I’m looking forward to offering my blend of hypnotherapy, past life regression, spirit release and soul retrieval work to a whole new audience. This blend is very powerful across a very wide spectrum of issues, from anxiety & overwhelm to fears & phobias; from emotional trauma and relationship issues to weight management and giving up smoking.
There is a spiritual overlay to my work, and I am happy to offer mentoring to anyone on their spiritual journey – which can be somewhat bumpy at this time!
Feel free to get in touch on 01444 459 433 or 07597 020 512 for a completely free, completely confidential chat.

Haywards Heath, Hove, Crawley – which is easiest for you?

I have been working from Vinings Natural Health Centre in Haywards Heath for several years now. It’s a lovely place to work from, right in the centre of town, yet quiet and peaceful and with its own parking. Very easy for those clients who come to see me from south London too – hop on the train from Victoria or London Bridge or Clapham Junction or East Croydon and in less than an hour there you are in the Sussex countryside!

I shall still be working from Vinings, but I am also spreading my wings: from September I shall be available in Crawley  and in Hove.
The treatment room in Crawley is in Ifield, not far from the golf course.
A delightful stand-alone room, it has a beautiful energy in a peaceful garden setting with free parking. It is a couple of minutes from the Nº 2 bus route from Crawley, and about 15 minutes’ walk from Ifield train station.

In Hove, I shall be working from The Practice Rooms in Church Road, almost opposite the large Tesco store there. These are beautiful rooms – there are seven available, so never a shortage – on the first and second floors in a lovely old characterful building. There is parking just 5 minutes away in the Norton Road multi-storey car park opposite Hove Town Hall.
Please note – there are stairs up to the first floor here, so not suitable for those clients with mobility issues.

From a base of hypnotherapy I blend past life regression, soul retrieval and spirit release work to trace the real underlying root cause of the issue, and resolve it at source, allowing the client to move on with his or her life.
My clients often say, “Jude, that’s weird – but it works!”
Whatever the issue, from fears & phobias to emotional trauma; from anxiety or that sense of overwhelm to addictive behaviours; from relationship problems to giving up smoking – my “inside out” approach has worked wonders for clients of all ages.
If you feel I might be able to help you, feel free to give me a call on 01444 459 433 or 07597 020 512: it’s totally free and totally confidential.
