Affordable Hypnosis MP3 Downloads Bring Hypnosis Into Your Home

As a professional hypnotherapist helping many people with a variety of problems, I recognize that not everyone can afford one-to-one help.

To make hypnosis affordable and accessible to everyone, Hypnosis Downloads produce an extensive list of Download hypnosis MP3s which you can listen to on your iPod, your Smart phone, your computer or burn to a CD.  You then have them to listen to again and again should you so require, particularly the ones about relaxing or de-stressing.  Just make sure you do not listen to them when driving!

They have over 800 single subjects, covering all sorts of subjects, for example:

Act on Your Ideas
Boredom Eating
Breastfeeding Relaxation
Business Networking Confidence
Chemotherapy Nausea
Relax after work   

Most single subjects cost just few a pounds.  They do supply the MP3s on a CD if you cannot or do not wish to download them.

There are also several packs or programmes, for example: 

10 Steps to Powerful Public Speaking

10 Steps to Overcome Insecurity in Relationships

Complete Stress Management Pack

I really recommend Hypnosis Downloads.  I use some of the MP3s myself eg 10 Min Power Nap and Tinnitus Treatment.  This last one really helps me cope with the constant gushing noise in one ear following surgery.  

All the hypnosis downloads are created by a team of four experienced hypnotherapists, all with a British accent.  They have this to say:

"Not all hypnosis is the same, and some is downright peculiar. But we work hard to ensure our psychology is sensible and research-supported, plus we have 5 main points of difference...
  1. 4 experienced therapy brains work on every download. And we work very hard to ensure every download is a work of art.
  2. We're experienced therapist trainers - formed in 1995 we've trained over 24,000 people since then at face-to-face events.
  3. We've served over 500,000 hypnosis downloads and are the biggest hypnosis provider in the world.
  4. Between our team of 4 hypnotherapists, we have treated over 5,000 patients in personal 1:1 therapy.
  5. Over 600,000 people have taken our email courses since 2000 when we launched our online business."

There are also some subjects for children.  Children really enjoy hypnosis and we usually recommend that they be at least 7 years old so that they can concentrate.

Have a look at the wide variety of MP3s offered by Hypnosis Downloads.  There are bound to be some that catch your eye and I know you will find them useful.  Just being in a wonderfully relaxing hypnotic state is a feeling you will enjoy.

I Can Help Solve Your Child's Problems with Hypnosis

You want the best for your children and it pains you to see them unhappy, without friends, struggling at school, lacking confidence or plagued by an unwanted habit, fear or phobia.  Talking to them does not solve the problem and the doctor just says they will grow out of it.  But you want to help your child now.  Good.  I can help.  I am a Mum and know how precious children are and have lots of experience helping children using hypnosis.

Children really enjoy hypnosis.  They love the “magic chair”, pretending to “fly on a magic carpet” or seeing themselves “scoring the winning goal”. 

Any parent knows that children pretty much live in a trance state.  Call it daydreaming if you like but they can easily be somewhere else in a flash.  In fact younger children can enter hypnosis with their eyes open and not even sitting still. 

Children also respond well to hypnosis and there are several key areas which bring effective results ie habits; self-confidence and overcoming shyness; coping with pressure at school and exam nerves; coping with divorce or death in the family and chronic health conditions.

As with an adult, there is far more going on in the subconscious mind (below the water) than in the conscious tip of an iceberg (above the water).  Even at a young age, a child has already clocked up thousands of experiences, any one of which could be causing a problem.  You only have to read how big a problem child obesity and eating disorders are becoming to know that is true.

What sort of problems do I help?  

  • Habits eg bedwetting, thumbsucking, hairpulling.

My blog post on the Ericksonian Approach to Thumbsucking

  • Fears and phobias such as spiders, dogs, school, needles, blood, medical treatment, the dentist, the dark.
  • Weight problems, obesity, eating disorders ie anorexia or bulimia and fussy eating.
  • Children can be badly affected by divorce, arrival of a new step-parent, a new sibling or a death in the family.  I know.  Don’t let your child carry these issues into adulthood and affect their relationships.
  • Children can hate school because they are being bullied, are left out, are shy or a favourite teacher has left.  They cannot concentrate because the teaching methods do not match how they need to learn.  That is where my NLP skills can help.
  • Children are under tremendous pressure in these uncertain economic times.  Competition is fierce and the need to do well at school is paramount.  Some sail through but many suffer from stress and bad exam nerves.  Occasionally we hear the sad news of a teenager ending their life because of the stress.  It can be avoided.

     “I can’t thank you enough for helping my daughter (16) through her exams.  She was so stressed, had developed an eating disorder and was even cutting herself.  She is a changed girl and this is all thanks to you.   She scored excellent results in her exams and now has confidence.  She has gone to China for a year to work as an au pair.  This was unthinkable before you helped her. ”  - Eva, Sweden

    Whatever problem your child has, I would like to help.  I have the knowledge and experience to do so.  

    We can do this face-to-face in the UK or over  video anywhere in the world.

    90% of Our Mind is Beyond Our Conscious Control

    "If only I could find a way to......"  We know what we want but somehow cannot quite achieve it.  Why is this?  

    Only 10% of our brain is conscious thought ie the bits we control.  The other 90% is unconscious or subconscious and hidden deep in our mind.  It is said that every person we have ever seen, every doorway we have walked through, every comment we have ever heard etc - are all stored deep within us.  You know the feeling when you cannot remember a name or a word and say, "Oh, it's on the tip of my tongue" then hours later you remember?  That is dragging the information out of our subconscious mind.  We never really forget anything.  Everything we learned at school, every word of a foreign language - it is all there somewhere.

    So what?

    A lot of this information is positive but much of it is negative.  Throwaway comments made about us as a child.  Other people's beliefs we heard.  All of this impacts who we become, the values and beliefs we hold and the habits and behaviours we develop.  We know we want to lose weight yet yo-yo diet for decades until we find out that it all goes back to a comment made when we were 12 which was forgotten consciously...but stored unconsciously.  

    It is like a battle between the two parts of the mind only as the subconscious mind is so much larger and outside our conscious control, we do not even know what we are battling against.

    The good news is that hypnosis can help reach that subconscious mind and rewrite the programming.  Under deep physical and mental relaxation, hypnosis bypasses the critical factor between the conscious and the subconscious allowing positive hypnotic suggestions to replace the negative ones.  

    All permanent change must take place at this subconscious level.  Saying affirmations over and over, day after day, may eventually get through but hypnosis can make the change quickly, often in just a single session.

    Hypnosis works with your own powerful subconscious mind to stop smoking in one session; shed unwanted weight and finally control your eating habits; overcome fears, phobias and habits; give you greater self-confidence; improve how you cope with stress, worry, anxiety and change and improves many stress-related health issues.  Hypnosis is suitable for everyone over the age of seven and children really enjoy hypnosis.

    When would now be a good time to change?

    You Can Overcome Stage Fright with Hypnosis

    Even famous singing stars can feel terrified when invited to perform live at major events. Panic and insomnia set in. A pounding heart, clammy palms, sweating and the terror can affect voice quality. Why would that be when they have performed live so many times? Maybe it is the thought of performing in front of thousands or even millions if a global televised event.
    Stage fright can even be so bad that it causes a performer to vomit in the lavatories before appearing on stage.
    However, visiting a hypnotherapist is a good solution to calm nerves and overcome the stage fright.
    Under hypnosis, events and situations do not seem so scary so you can face whatever it is that you are afraid of whether that be fear of heights, flying, spiders, public speaking or in this case - singing live in front of millions. The hypnotherapist uses a process of detaching you from reality so that you become desensitized to whatever is making your heart beat too fast. The result is that your mind is reprogrammed to see the object of your fear in a non-scary way and maybe even enjoy the experience.
    Once the mind is re-programmed at the deep unconscious level where all permanent change must take place, life will never be the same.
    I know because I overcame my life-long phobia of spiders through self-hypnosis.
    An opera singer once approached me for help with her stage fright. Her contemporaries were coping with beta-blockers which are prescribed to cope with the physiological symptoms of the "fight or flight" response (pounding heart, cold/clammy hands, increased respiration, sweating, etc.) The symptoms are significantly reduced, thus enabling anxious individuals to concentrate on the task at hand.
    However, Wikipedia (1) quotes the following adverse drug reactions (ADRs) associated with the use of beta blockers include: nausea, diarrhoea, bronchospasm, dyspnea, cold extremities, exacerbation of Raynaud's Syndrome, bradycardia, hypotension, heart failure, heart block, fatigue, dizziness, alopecia (hair loss), abnormal vision, hallucinations, insomnia,nightmares, sexual or erectile dysfunction and/or alteration of glucose and lipid metabolism. They must also not be prescribed if the patient suffers from asthma or takes cocaine.
    So this very sensible opera singer preferred to learn how to overcome her stage fright with natural, relaxing hypnosis.
    Hypnosis is available now through Skype for anyone who wishes to overcome stage fright or any fear, phobia or anxiety state. This takes place in your home or office over Skype anywhere in the world. You will be guided into deep mental and physical relaxation and in this wonderful state the uncomfortable anxiety is replaced with cool, calm, relaxed confidence. Hypnotic suggestions are installed and techniques offered for you to easily recall these feelings whenever needed.

    What Are the 21 Myths and 30 Truths About Hypnosis?

    I first had the privilege of working with my first client using hypnotherapy in 1990 - 23 years ago.

    Over the years, I have experienced change first hand with people.  Some of these people were desperate having spent years and a huge amount of money seeking help elsewhere.  There is nothing more rewarding than hearing those simple words, "Thank you for all you have done for me."  The truth is that I do not have a magic wand but work with my client's own inner resources to effect change.

    Sometimes what needs to be changed is so obvious to me that I wonder how the person has not found the solution themselves but of course that is problem; we can become so invested in our own problem that we cannot see any way out, or simply refuse to believe there is a way out.

    When someone says, "I've tried everything and I finally found what I needed", then I know my day was worthwhile.

    Yet despite all the evidence of hypnosis being such a powerful tool for change, I still hear such nonsense and false beliefs about what hypnosis is and more amusingly, what it isn't.

    I wanted to dispel these myths once and for all and counter them with some truths about the simple truths and how hypnosis is used everyday, somewhere in the world, for an amazing variety of applications.  You may know that hypnosis is effective in stopping people smoking - in fact the most effective method there is - but did you know that hypnosis is used to help the process in a woman's mind who is undergoing fertility treatment to fall pregnant?  We call this simply Hypno-fertility.  Or that hypnosis is now medically recognized in the UK as helping sufferers of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).

    When cynics say, "It's all in the mind", be glad because it really is!  Hypnosis works with the deep, hidden unconscious or subconscious mind where all permanent change must take place.  Just trying to do something consciously rarely works.  (Terrible word "try"; it sets the mind up for possible failure.)

    I have written an e-book "21 Myths & 30 Truths About Hypnosis".  You can receive it free simply by visiting  You will also receive occasional information from me in your email inbox about applying Hypnosis, NLP and Personal Development to effect the change you want in your life.
