It all started out like any other day. The sun was hot and the day began to get into full swing. Since it was a nice day I thought it would be nice to go for a walk with my folks along Brighton sea-front here in the UK. The walk started of peacefully and we made good progress, as the cool wind blew in our faces keeping us cool and refreshed. When we got to the pier, we decided we would push along and walk another 2 miles to the marina and stop and have a much needed rest and lunch. As I walked passed the pier, I saw the road running alongside the pier was closed. I thought great I can have a nice quiet walk along here, without those insane motorbikers breaking the calmness. As I kept walking I saw my worst nightmare, lots of old loud sports cars. It was some kind of sports car get together. Definitely not my thing. I decided to relax, and you can imagine my walking pace quickened quite considerably. I wasn't hanging around, sorry mum and dad, but when you have had a life long phobia of loud noise, you don't hang around admiring the view. I was just focused on getting as much distance between me and these crazy sports car drivers. Luckily they were all to consumed with admiring each others vehicles, and not starting them up. I knew I had to be quick through here, and put some…

Overcoming Anxiety The Lester Way

For those that aren't to familar with my background I thought I would take the chance to share with you a little story about myself. I do this in the hope that it will empower you and show you that no matter how bad your anxiety or fear is, there is a way out. In my early years both at school and through to university I was badly bullied. At the time it was a very unpleasant experience, and no doubt played a very big role in my social anxiety. I used to dread that people were always making fun of me, or was anxious about what their opinions were of me. Over time this anxiety grew stronger, and lead to me being depressed and frustrated with life. I did the good old counsellor thing and saw people who were supposed to offer help and suport. I often found that I left those sessions more distraught than when I entered. I desperately sought answers as to why I was always feeling depressed and anxious. For many years I couldn't find any answers. I remember that everytime I walked outside and particularly if I saw other teenager groups walking along, I felt scared that I somehow would be attacked or worse. Of course I now know that these thoughts were just my mind going out of control, and these beliefs were totally unfounded. At 20 years old I decided that none of the counsellors really understood me or could help me.…
Welcome back to this very special 4 part series on Emetophobia. I really hope you are finding this valuable and useful. If you have any questions or would like me to go over something, then just contact me on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. // I’ll take it from there. During my research on this post and countless hours looking through forum posts, something really stood out for me about what people thought worked really well for Emetophobia, and that was Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. The only downside was CBT is very expensive and people were crying out for information on how they could use this technique to better help them. The good news is you don’t have to pay anything because I’m going to give you a snapshot of CBT as it relates to hypnosis, yippee!!!   So let’s get the background out the way. CBT works on both parts of the belief, a bit like we did last session, but with a big difference. We basically encourage ourselves to bring up those negative beliefs and play them in our head, and just erase them from there, using a secret technique that CBT doesn’t use. Then I’m going to take you though the positive belief, and really get you fired up and ready to being free from your Emetophobia. Sound good?? Step 1: The first thing we need to do, is get a sheet of paper. On the sheet of…
Welcome to part 2 of this unique blog series about tackling Emetophobia. One of the things that seems to be quite common with people suffering anxieties is they seem to have alot of mental turmoil about what is going on. It can seem you just don’t know what to do, do I do this, do I do that. So I guess it’s not surprising you can find yourself getting overwhelmed by it all. Being overwhelmed seems to stem from the fact that parts of you are pulling you in different directions. It’s like being on a crossroads, and part of you says turn left, and the other part says turn right. So let’s look at something we can do to reduce this mental agitation we experience. Before we do this process let’s just explain a little bit about how this works. The process is called Parts Therapy, and as the name suggests, it looks at the part of you that is holding onto your fear of being sick, and the other part of you that wants to be free from your fear of being sick. The part of you that holds onto your fear of being sick is known as the ‘Original Part’, and this part has a positive reason why it is holding onto the fear. The part of you that wants to be free from your fear of being sick is called the ‘Positive Part’.  Great now we have set the basics down, let’s get stuck in... Step…
Hey guys welcome to this special 4 part all about Emetophobia, the Fear of Being Sick. Now I should say from the outset that this condition affects people in many different ways, and this post can’t tackle this issue in the detail it really needs, that is far better done face to face with someone like myself who is a professional therapist. However through these 4 specific posts I thought I would give it my best shot and so feel free to post below and let me know your thoughts:) Emetophobia causes the sufferer to feel paranoid about being sick in public, or even seeing someone be sick. This leads to sufferers taking excessive action and avoiding certain places, or not eating certain foods for fear that it might cause them to be sick. It also can cause various levels of anxiety depending on how bad the situation is. Some people might be fearful of getting ill, and the two conditions are very much interlinked in some ways. The fear of being ill and contracting some kind of illness can also cause that particular individual to take excessive action. Everytime winter comes they fear that they are going to get ill, or they have to continually check that they are okay and get re-assurance from those close to them or from Doctors. Dr Larina Kase mentions that Emetophobia is the 6th biggest fear around. The fact remains there are many sufferers out there who find the concept of being sick…
Hey everyone Hope you are all doing well:) Welcome to this latest blog post. This post is really inspired by 2 different reasons, 1 is that ASN is going to have a therapy programme which is very exciting indeed, and the other was inspired by a recent client session I did. In this post i'm going to share with you my personal opinion of how you can use hypnotherapy to help you, and what this strange thing called hypnosis really is all about. A Little History: Hypnosis goes back to the days of biblical times according to general consensus. My favourite story about hypnosis was in Greece.The greek god for sleep was called Hypnos, and back in ancient greece it was said that when people were really ill they went to special temples where the god of sleep would visit them and relieve them of their condition. They used to use suggestion, and prayer, but also music as well. Fast forward to 1734 and the father of hypnosis, Mesmer hits the scene. What I like about Mesmer was his belief that the moon and planets had a profound affect on how we felt. If we felt ill it was because we were out of alignment. You can see the link here with things like universal energy and being at one with the universe. Alot of the more spiritual elements of self help really stemmed from this period. The next key guy, and i'm missing quite a few people out is…

Smashing Through The Anxiety Wall

Learn how to overcome your beliefs and thoughts using nlp Hey everybody. Hope you are all well. It's coming close to winter here in the UK and it's getting colder and colder. How I wish I lived in a hot country lol. This post is inspired by a client session I did this week. This person suffers from de-personalisation disorder, and we have been trying different approaches to tackle not only that but depression and anxiety as well. Sometimes as a Hypnotherapist I come across things that challenge me, and I love a challenge. I had been trying to think of how we could have a breakthrough in these sessions, how could I best help my client. After trying different techniques and thinking of different things to do, I have to admit I was beginning to doubt my own abilities. Then, the strangest thing happened. I was doing a hypnosis session, and from nowhere I just threw in this concept, which i'm going to teach and share with you today, and the results of this, were really exciting, and my client noticed a difference, which was so rewarding. Maybe your similar, your beliefs about your condition wear you down, your depression tires you out leaving you feeling exhausted and frustrated with youself. There are times I guess when you feel like life is one big spiral, and nothing you seem to do changes how you feel. It's the same feeling as being trapped, trapped with no way out, stuck within…

Tackling Those Health Anxiety Thoughts Today

Hi everybody, it's been a while since i've blogged here. To be honest i've been getting really busy lately working with clients from Anxiety UK, launching my Stress Relief 2 mobile app which tackles work stress, and writing a book, soon to be published on Kindle and lots more. Anyway, it's great to be back, and I thought I would kick things off with a topic that affects many of us, and that is health anxiety. Health anxiety is when someone excessively worries about their health, some people think that whenever they get a pain, they are going to die, or something terrible is wrong with them. It can cause the sufferer to constantly check themselves and be on guard or see the doctor on a very regular basis just to see if everything is okay. I actually have worked with quite a few people now that suffer from Health Anxiety, and it is suprisingly simple to let go of. However, I will also say that it takes a firm decision on your part to really take the action needed to get over your anxiety. In this blog post we are going to look at the very first thing that causes Health Anxiety in my opinion, and this is those thoughts and beliefs whirling around in your mind. Now these thoughts and beliefs you have about health anxiety are really acting as a protective mechanism, even the most negative belief you have is trying to warn you or protect you…
