Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy, Hypnotism and the Truth about the Funky Chicken!Written by Richard MacKenzie
So what’s Hypnosis? Is it Funky Chicken, Tina Turner impression or eating a juicy lemon thinking that is a nice ripe peach? In around 1780’s a European medic called Mesmer began a fascinating journey that would change world of therapy and entertainment forever! This outwardly appearing eccentrically wonderful flamboyant character took his therapy to stage and created Stage Hypnosis.
Over two hundred years after this momentous event world is still saying WOW in amazement to this gracious art. “Hypnotherapy has come so far and I believe that we are now in an age where we now know so much of how mind works and what makes us tick, that it is possible to successfully change our lives into dreams that we wish them to be! During my time as a Hypnotherapist I have enjoyed tremendous results from my clients, I put this down to my main work ethic, which is – When I work with someone my only aim is to help them achieve kind of life that they desire through empowerment!” Said UK’s top Hypnotist, Richard MacKenzie, he followed by saying, “Eventhough Hypnotherapy is a serious mainstream therapy, I believe that it should not forget its roots and separate itself from Stage Hypnosis, but see it as a vehicle to promote wonderful benefits of Hypnosis in Therapy.
stutter helpWritten by Stephen Hill
There are many different treatments for people who stutter/stammer. In this article I will describe some of experiences and types of stuttering or stammering therapy people experiment with.
One of first places people go to when seeking help for a speech impediment is speech therapy. I myself started attending speech therapy at age of five and I continued at different times to attend until age of eighteen. Now I am sure some people have some very positive experiences and results from this type of therapy, however I was not one of these people. From what I remember main advice I was given was to slow down my speech and to take a deep breath before starting to speak. When I observed fluent people speaking, I rarely heard them take a deep breath.
Another area people try is hynotherapy. This was something I really wanted to try for myself at age of around nineteen. Unfortunately each session cost nearly as much as my weekly wage at that point of my life. I never managed to experience this form of stammering therapy.
