Five words that help you move forward

Committing to change can be a scary thing, even if it’s something you really want. This last weekend, for example, we signed the lease agreement for my shiny new office in Waterman House. It’s a lovely office space. Bright, clean, comfortable, air conditioned, with a manned reception and everything. And after months of being without […]

Beating Low Self-Confidence

We’ve all experienced times where we feel more confident than others, but sometimes a bad experience can knock our confidence so much that it stays low. Low self confidence doesn’t always follow from a failure or bad experience, however. Sometimes, it can simply be a natural progression of having low self-esteem over a period of […]

Stoptober Giveaway

At North Kent Hypnotherapy, we’ve spent over 10 years helping people to stop smoking for good. Over that time, as you might imagine, we’ve gotten pretty good at it. However, there are only so many clients that we can physically see in each day, and we wanted to find a way to make a difference […]

Some great advice for today (and every day)

The weather gurus have tipped today as being the hottest day of the year so far… so we thought this video would be most appropriate. The video is based on the hit song, Everybody’s Free to Wear Sunscreen, which was a 1999 hit for Australian film director Baz Luhrmann – who is best known for […]

Why Gravesend people are brave and resilient

We’ve been serving the people of Gravesend for 10 years this year, and over that time, we’ve been quite surprised how many people we see for stress related conditions, such as anxiety, panic and phobias. Perhaps it’s not surprising, being based just a few miles from the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge and the Blackwall tunnel, […]

Are you wasting your jelly beans?

The other day, I found this great little video. It uses jelly beans to show you the value of your time and how precious each moment of your life is. In our work, we often help people overcome their limitations, so they can enjoy life more fully. Perhaps its a fear or phobia that stops […]

How to make sure ‘Stoptober’ doesn’t lead to ‘Noshvember’

The NHS ‘Stoptober‘ campaign, now in its second year, has seen nearly a quarter of a million people pledge to go without smoking for 28 days. The idea is that if you can stop smoking for 28 days, you are five times more likely to stay ‘smoke free’. The problem for many people, however, is […]
