Hypnosis to Quit Smoking

May 9th, 2013

People often overlook one of the most effective uses of Hypnosis and that is to Quit Smoking. I see quite a few people every week for just that purpose and over the years have helped thousands to stop smoking for good.

Hypnosis is quicker and easier than most of the other methods. My clients report no cravings, no desires, no unwanted effects and genuinely enjoy finally being smoke-free. Another great thing about using Hypnosis is that you stay quit and rarely resume smoking.

Many of my clients have tried other methods. Everything from pure willpower (highly overrated) and the extremely psycho-active Chantix (horrible dreams) and been wonderfully happy with the successful results they’ve achieved through hypnosis.

I routinely get a success rate of over 90% in a single session and higher when clients complete my several session program. The freedom and sense of relief people receive from quitting is something that changes their lives. One of the best advantages is that people actually change with Hypnosis and can just walk away from an old habit that has made them unhappy for years. There really is an easy and painless way to Stop Smoking for once and for all !

Habits are like computer programs than run continuously in our subconscious mind. It’s difficult, if not impossible to change them with will-power or conscious effort. The average success rate with effort-based, conscious programs are a dismal 2%. No wonder people think it’s close to impossible to Quit Smoking.

However, with Hypnosis, it’s a different story. One we change on the subconscious level, we change entirely. We can go from a smoker to a non-smoker quickly and easily. Onew we change our internal program, we are different. Not only do I find Hypnosis is the easiest and best way to Quit Smoking, my clients report it was the easiest thing they ever did.

We have a choice, the hard way or the easy way. Don’t make life any harder than it is.

Weight Loss Success Stories

March 28th, 2013

Not many people are aware that hypnosis is the quick and easy way to Lose Weight.  Being overweight is often the result of accumulate “bad habits” that include eating, and overeating, for all the wrong reasons.

When we are young, we are often conditioned to equate food and comfort. Parents, meaning no harm, will often give their children something good to eat when they are in times of distress. We accept and learn the comfort and, unfortunately, that follo9ws us through life. I’m sure we are all familiar with “comfort food”. Well, it’s real and often we can take it to the extreme.

Sometimes this eating for comfort is subtle, but other times it can become extreme, such as an emotional upheaval often linked to a failed relationship, loss of a job or death of somebody close to us. It’s something we all do to some extent, but only when it becomes unhealthy for us does it present a problem. When we gain 20 or more pounds over the weight we should be, it’s a problem. That’s what often happens as we get older and don’t burn off the calories that we used to.

So what do we do ? We stop eating for comfort. However, there’s a problem with that. We end up with no comfort and miserable. That’s no good for us and eventually we will revolt and usually end up eating even more than we did before. A true Catch-22.

However, with hypnosis we can learn to achieve that level of comfort we need without eating. We can change old habits and easily replace them with new, more desirable ones. While it is usually very hard to consciously change our old habits, with hypnosis it’s done easily and quickly everyday.

I teach clients Self-Hypnosis as part of my Weight Loss program and find it to be very effective when used along with my sessions. I’ve found that if a client will do Self-Hypnosis a few times a day, it only takes a minute or two, they get the results they want. It’s as simple as that.

Hypnosis for Gephyrophobia or Fear of Bridges

February 27th, 2012

I’ve recently been doing some work with clients for Gephyrophobia, or Fear of Driving over Bridges. I’ve learned a great deal including how widespread this fear really is and how generally unknown the use of Hypnosis to help it is.

Living in the Northeast part of the US, we are faced with the likelihood of traveling across bridges to get most anywhere. I’m in Pennsylvania and we can’t get to New Jersey without crossing a bridge. Any journey to the western part of the state in PA requires us to cross the Susquehanna River, by bridge and Maryland, to our South is absolutely loaded with water and, of course, bridges. Any travel to New York City requires a bridge trip or a tunnel or ferry trip (that’s another story I’ll leave for later). For anyone with a fear or aversion to bridges, it’s a difficult, if not impossible situation.

The truth is that many people suffer high anxiety and even panic when approaching these bridges and often cannot get across them without help. It’s terribly debilitating and often leads people to avoid traveling to certain destinations or often going miles and miles out of their way to avoid these crossings. It’s a terrible loss of freedom.

But, in as little as two or three sessions with Chester County Hypnosis, I can change your life in a most positive way. Call me at 610-296-4929 and get these fears behind you.

Dr. Oz shows Hypnosis and the Virtual Gastric Band on TV for Weight Loss

February 13th, 2012

I was glad to see Dr. Oz on TV the other day showing the success attained by hypnosis using the Virtual Gastric Band technique. It’s not often that the medical community recognizes the benefits that hypnosis brings to people. Dr. Oz took a big step in not only highlighting what hypnosis can do for us, but also showing the valuable services hypnotists provide everyday.

The Virtual Gastric Band concept in hypnosis actually came out of Europe a few years ago. In fact, one practitioner went so far as to set up a clinic that actually simulated the medical Gastric Banding operation for clients, including the pre and post operative care. While this has been well received and has produced good results, hypnotists like myself have been getting excellent results for clients all along without all of the theatrics.
Chester County Hypnosis Weight Loss
When you think of it, if we can realize that our mind can help us to get to our ideal weight, it doesn’t need much more than the determination, expectation and realization that it can occur for it to really occur. It’s as simple as that.

I’ve always felt that if I were to tell you that you had a Gastric Band installed, and you really didn’t, that you would hold that truth within your mind and know at a deep level that you had no limitations on what you could eat. I’d be lying to you and you’d always know that I was lying to you. However, I could tell you that you could eat less and become pleasantly satisfied and you could believe in that fully, because I’ve done that with hundreds and hundreds of clients.

The main concept I’d like to get across is that hypnosis is highly effective for weight loss. On that, Dr. Oz was clearly right and I experience it every day in my practice with my clients. We do it by changing habits and cutting down our portions, it’s a simple and easy as that. It’s highly effective, highly successful and, I believe, the easiest way to lose weight and get yourself to a place where you are happy and healthy.

So remember, that hypnosis is the key. It enables us to change habits easily and quickly and go from the counterproductive to the productive right away. My clients usually start losing between 2 and 7 pounds per week and continue losing right up until they reach their “ideal weight”. It’s healthy, simple and easy as long as they follow some basic instructions. No pills, no diets, no painful time at a gym, no expensive products or foods are needed. Your mind can do all the work for you.

If you think of it this way, our mind allowed us to become overweight and it can also take us to our “ideal weight”. Hypnosis is the key that can unlock that change. It can help get our wishes and desires across to our mind at a deep, automatic level with the result being that we just naturally change what, when and how much we eat.

Don’t accept being overweight, it just doesn’t have to be. Even if our parents and siblings have been overweight, it doesn’t mean we have to be. We all can change and it is our mind that makes the difference. Visit my Weight Loss page to see how you can get to your “Ideal Weight”.

Cheek Biting or Oral Frictional Hyperkeratosis and Hypnosis

January 19th, 2012

Oral Frictional Hyperkeratosis or “Cheek Biting” has been something I’ve become aware of in the last few years. Basically, it is chewing, biting or pulling the skin of the insides of your cheeks. Most people who do it think they are unique and do it alone, but many people do it and hypnosis can help them change the habit.
Joseph Nunan CH,CI
The reason that most people think that only they do it is because it’s an internal habit. If we bite our nails, others can see the effects. when we bite the insides of our mouth, only we know. However, when we do that we create an open wound and some of my clients have said their dentists or doctors have expressed concern that they could develop mouth cancer.

I’m not qualified to make a judgement on that, but I assume it is better that you don’t do it. that is where hypnosis helps. In a short program, we can help you change your life so you don’t do it anymore. It’s as simple as that. when you don’t do something, it really doesn’t matter what the effects are, it really just doesn’t apply anymore.

So, if you do this, call me. Hypnosis helps amazingly well and you don’t have to keep doing this and worry about your health.

Hypnosis for Nail Biting

January 13th, 2012

I’ve worked over the years with hundreds of people who used to bit their nails. Notice I said “used to”. Hypnosis is one of the truly remarkable solutions to a problem people can’t wait to get rid of.

I’ve never met one person who bit their nails who liked it. Sure, it provides some comfort, but almost universally most of the people who do it absolutely hate it. They can’t wait to stop doing it and most of them were unaware of how effective hypnosis was in changing their lives.
Joseph Nunan CH,CI
I’ve found that Nail-Biting is socio-genetic. That means it usually comes from within your family, with 75% being a mother-son and father-daughter transference. It is not like a disease that travels in one’s family, being that there is no pathological part to it. It’s not anything weird, actually it comes from when we were young children and we learned, unconsciously, to react to stress the way our parents, or even a sibling did. It’s not deeply psychological or a sign of deeper troubles, it’s just a habit we picked up at a very young age, as simple as that.

In fact, it has no more significance than a patterned response and if I was to ask the parents of most of my successful Nail Biting clients, they would say one of their parents did it too. You are not crazy, there is no deep seated emotional issues. It is a simple habit you picked up when you were very young. You may not have started doing it until later on, but it always was impressed upon your subconscious as a response.

The bad news is that it is a big deal to you and a habit like this is hard, if not impossible to break. Many Nail Biters go through their entire lives doing it. The good news is that hypnosis can help to change it, stop it and make it not happen anymore.

I find that we can make great changes in as few as one or at the most three sessions, where people will never, ever, bit their nails again. Most of the clients I see for this tell me they have a great sense of relief, like they overcame a tremendous burden in their lives. I never did it, so I don’t really know, but I do know how much they appreciate what we do here. They say their lives are changed so very much for the better.

Hypnosis to Pass a Driver’s License Test

January 13th, 2012

I recently had the wonderful experience of seeing a young client who was having difficulty passing their driving test. They had failed several times and each subsequent attempt was accompanied with more anxiety, more tension and more dread. The situation had become desperate as it seemed that success was just getting farther and farther away. The prospect of attaining this very important right of passage for any young person seemed to be fading fast.
Joseph Nunan CH,CI
Fortunately, the teen’s father made a call to me to inquire if hypnosis could possibly help and I was happy to tell him that yes, it is very effective with Test Anxiety and Performance Anxiety. I am often called on to assist clients in passing Medical Boards, Law Boards, Real Estate Boards and other Professional Board Exams. I am also called in to help sports teams and individuals to improve performance. Passing a Drivers Test presents the same issues in that the need for us to relax to do our best is of great importance.

The first thing I had to determine was if we had a competent driver who was capable of passing the test. Passing a driving test requires adequate vision, familiarity with laws and practiced motor skills. After speaking with the father, I was assured the teen had completed a driver education course, knew all the laws and was, in fact, very proficient in driving. He said he was comfortable and felt very safe while his teen was driving. That was frustrating to both the teen and the parent, because all that required was there, except passing the test and gaining the license. He told me the teen was calm while driving and he had no doubts about safety or skill, the problem was just a case of “nerves” when it came to the test.

Getting a driving license is a big milestone for a teen. It is a rite of passage, a true indication that you are becoming an adult. Because of that, the actual event that holds the key, the driving test, can become emotionally charged. Fear of failure and anxiety can turn a dream into a nightmare.

With hypnosis, we were able to create a trigger with the teen that would produce a calm, confident state. We used a color that the teen said suggested that calmness, the color blue. We were able to have the teen produce this state immediately after the session, so the teen now had the needed confidence that it could be done at the time of the test.

Well, you can imagine the result. I received an excited phone call a few days later proudly announcing to me that there was a new, licensed driver on our roads. I was thanked profusely, but made a point to tell the teen that it was their doing, not mine.

This is just one of the ways that hypnosis can make your life easier and help you to accomplish things that you didn’t think you could. I wish more people would come to know that this a great tool to make their lives better, just as this father and teen did.

Make Your New Year’s Resolutions a Success

January 2nd, 2012

The New Year brings optimism and many of us will traditionally make resolutions for positive changes in our life. It is a time to turn the page, not only on the calendar, but from our past to our future. It’s a positive, optimistic time.

Most of those wishful resolutions usually end up in failure within 3 weeks. Our best intentions end up on the junk pile, maybe to be revived for next year. However, that doesn’t have to happen to us and I’ll tell you why.
Joseph Nunan CH,CI
Many of our resolutions center on our habits or behaviors. We may want to Quit Smoking, Lose Weight, or Stop other of our undesirable Habits like Nail Biting, Cheek Biting, etc.  and these are definitely good aspirations for us in our lives. They are positive changes. They will make us better.

However, we usually try to make these changes with Will Power.  While often thought of as what makes a strong person, Will power is usually misunderstood, overestimated and used for things it doesn’t work well with. Habits are one of those things.

Will Power is like mental adrenaline and its’ purpose is to give us a short-term blast of concentration and focus. When we are in difficult situations, it can make the difference between life and death for us. But it’s only can last for a short time.

Hypnosis allows us to communicate with our Subconscious Mind, our Inner Mind, where our habits live. With Hypnosis we can get across to that Inner Mind that we want a change. Will Power just can’t do that. When we get across our wishes, the change takes place. It’s as simple as that. Normally, we can’t get our wishes across to our Subconscious Mind, we have natural blocks in place. Hypnosis helps us to overcome those blocks so that we can tell our Inner Mind what we really want.

My big message is “Don’t Give Up”, when you attempt New Year’s Resolutions and fail. You have the right idea, have the right intentions and you deserve to make the changes you want. At Chester County Hypnosis, I can help you to succeed at your 2012 resolutions, so you don’t have to accept a needless failure.

With a little help, you can feel better about yourself, enjoy your new accomplishments and have the satisfaction of knowing you made a New Year’s resolution and stuck to it.

I’m Joe Nunan, Certified Hypnotherapist at Chester County Hypnosis and Hypnosis Instructor at The Hypnosis Academy. Let me help your 2012 begin on a successful note.

Learning a new language in your sleep

December 26th, 2011

Here is a great question, can you learn in your sleep ? Of course you can, but not in the way we normally do. You see our conscious mind sleeps, just as we do. However, our subconscious mind, our inner mind, never sleeps. That is why you always should be careful saying things when people are sleeping, they will remember what you say. Maybe not consciously, but they will.

In the 1940′s, the US military was in a dilemma. Because of the internment of most Japanese-Americans, they had virtually nobody who spoke Japanese in the armed forces.  Without getting into the morality of that, it left them in a dilemma. Japanese, like Chinese and Korean are tonal languages, much different from English and European languages, where it’s not what you say, but how you say it that determines the meaning. tonal languages cannot be learned from books.

So, as an experiment, the US tried “sleep learning” on a group of recruits. To do this they played records or language lessons through barracks after the troops went to sleep each night. They also had one day of awake language instruction per week. The results were that withing 4 months they has virtually all fluent Japanese speakers. Back then, it would have taken several years of courses to accomplish that.

Dave Elman mentions that in his famous book, Hypnotherapy. He was supposed to interview the director of the program after the war and apparently they decided it was confidential and cancelled the interview.

So, I figured, lets give it a try myself. I’ve got some Plimseur CD’s and I’m going to see if I can learn Mandarin Chinese in my sleep, just as they did in WWII. Now, this is not going to be easy, Mandarin Chinese is considered one of the most difficult languages for a non-asian to learn, but I’m game. Also I have a good evaluation point set up as my wife is a native Mandarin speaker and has seen me attempt to learn Mandarin for 10 years with little or no success.

So, I’m going to use some of the Self Hypnosis techniques I teach along with the US Army “Sleep Learning” techniques from WWII and see how we do. If all goes according to plan, I should be fluent by May 2012.

However, the biggest problem is that I love to leave the radio on and listen to Coast2CoatAM every night, what a great show.

So, stay tuned, I’m going to do my work (subconsciously) each night with my MP3 player and then do a few hours of conscious listening to the same material each week. What I think that does is create the link between the subconscious learning and subconscious learning.

I’ll update you monthly and see if this valuable knowledge from WWII can help all of us.

Always remember, our subconscious mind is 88% of us, it’s our automatic, our habitual mind. Our conscious, our logical mind is only 12% of us. When our superior, logical, conscious mind wants to make a change, and can’t, that is where hypnosis helps greatly.
