During the Olympic Games in Rio earlier this month, I saw an interview on TV with the man who used to be the coach to the GB cyclists’ team. He was asked what has made them so successful now, in comparison with the results that they used to get, and the answer was not necessarily what you might expect. Yes, the additional money that has come into the sport from the National Lottery has helped, but what he said was even more important, was that they had developed a real desire to make improvements, and a determination to change elements of what they were doing just a little bit. The accumulation of each of these changes, sometimes with very small margins, has resulted in quite dramatic achievements, as we saw in the number of medals that the GB cyclists won at the 2016 Olympics.

 

I see a link here with what I have learned from working with my hypnotherapy clients. It is important for them to have the motivation and to want to make a change in their lives. Simply making an appointment with me and turning up, can be a brave first step for some clients, and a really positive one. I can help them to focus on this motivation and to enhance it even more. I work with each client to identify what it is they want to change and during the session we often find an area where they have a pattern of unwanted or unhelpful thinking. It really is true, that “the way that we think, affects the way that we feel, and the way that we feel, affects our behaviour”.

 

I help my clients to realise that making a small change in how they think, or how they feel and their emotions, can have a huge and positive impact on their lives.
