Mindfulness Meditation Vol.1
What is Mindfulness?
The skill of ‘mindfulness’ focuses on being open to new possibilities. One skill of mindfulness is learning how to focus your attention on one thing at a time. This includes being aware of and able to recognise all the things that are going on around you (for example, sights, sounds, smells), as well as all the things that are going on inside you (for example, thoughts, feelings and emotions).
Mindfulness also refers to observing or looking at things as they truly are, as opposed to what we think they are or evaluate them to be or imagine them to be. For example, going into a situation with a preconceived notion of how things will turn out or how we think they ought to be, will almost certainly colour our experience. This can prevent us from getting in touch with the true experience as it is there and then. Being in touch with the present moment as opposed to being caught up in thoughts about the past is a much healthier way to be.
Simply looking at things in an objective way as opposed to labelling them as either “good” or “bad” stop automatic negative thoughts from taking hold and sending us in a downward spiral.
What is Hypnotherapy?
The state of Hypnosis is achieved by completely relaxing the body then entering into an altered state of mind, very similar to day-dreaming. Once this is achieved the mind is open to accept new ideas, concepts and behaviour patterns. The suggestions, metaphors and guided imagery offered during Hypnosis sink deep into the subconscious part of the mind where all our memories and experiences are stored. If we want to change how these past memories or experiences impact on our present day life, or we want to change a learnt pattern of behaviour or reaction, this is where it can be done.

Does Self-Hypnosis work?
Hypnotherapy and Self-hypnosis can have a powerful, instant effect on some people and for others the benefits can be more subtle over a period of time and it’s only when they look back they can see the changes that have occurred. If you have an open mind, can relax deeply and follow the voice of the Hypnotherapist you will experience the most impressive results. Self-hypnosis can be used by almost everyone as a self-help tool for implementing long-term change and improvement of health and well-being.
Why should you use our self-hypnosis mp3 Downloads or CDs?
Unlike many Hypnotherapists, Sharon qualified as a Counsellor before adding a Hypnotherapy qualification to her repertoire of skills. The reason for this is that in order to understand the complexity of the psychological issues experienced by many people, Sharon believes you have to have more than the ability to induce a hypnotic state of mind. It’s paramount that the Hypnotherapist understands the underling causes that can create feelings such as fear, panic, anxiety and depression or behaviours that seem irrational or self-destructive.
In Sharon’s opinion, this cannot be accomplished by studying Hypnotherapy as a stand-alone form of therapy.
With 4 years of training as a Counsellor, Group Therapist, Relationship Therapist and Hypnotherapist and 16 years working in the field, you can be sure that you are getting the best.
Sharon’s caring, empathetic, non-judgmental, congruent approach and her years of experience working as a Counsellor, means you are getting a product that is safe, effective and above all, professional.
