If you are asking negative questions your mind will focus on the negative and take you down into a negative spiral.  Whereas if you ask yourself positive questions your mind will start to find out solutions to your problems.

I decided to search on this topic before I wrote this blog.  To be honest I wasn’t impressed with what others had written on this subject.  I thought the questions were closed and quite negative from where I was standing.  I didn’t feel very enthusiastic after reading these blogs and they didn’t give me the answer I was looking for  There maybe some very good articles out there, but they aren’t being ranked highly by Google, which wouldn’t surprise me.  I hope this article creates more enthusiasm in you to change the questions in your life.

Questions versus affirmations

I will go into this in more detail in a future blog.  Let’s stay focused on the questions for the moment.

New discoveries

Many of these happen by chance.  But more often than not a great scientist will focus on a single question in their mind until they find a solution to the problem.


You maybe saying to yourself.  

Why can’t I make ends meet?

Why am I not being paid enough?

Why can’t I pay my bills?

Why are they being paid more than me?

While ever you ask these questions in your mind, your mind is going to search out this information and provide the evidence to you.  You will just drop deeper down into the above problems.  You have most likely learnt these questions from those around you as you grew up.

Better questions to ask yourself about your finances are.

How do I live more comfortably?

How do I earn XXXXX amount a year?

How do I become a millionaire?

How do I earn enough money from my business to live comfortably?

How do I live debt free?

How can I afford my ideal house?

How can I afford to go on a dream holiday every year?

Find an appropriate question to ask yourself about your finances and just keep asking it quietly in your mind every day until you have the evidence right there in front of you.   Big questions aren’t going to be answered over night, persistence is the key.  Try and find one short positive question that will remove all your financial concerns.


I believe that most disease starts in the mind.  I would say 95% of disease is psychosomatic.  What you tend to focus on in your mind will tend to appear in your body.

Asking the following questions aren’t going to help you.

Why am I ill?

Why am I overweight?

Why am I depressed?

Why do I feel so bad?

Why am I so unhappy?

What negative questions are you currently asking yourself about your health?

Change the questions you ask yourself about your health and let your unconscious mind come up with new solutions.

How do I become completely healthy?

How do I attain my ideal weight?

How do I feel good?

How do I become a happy person?

Ask these questions until you are blue in the face.  As well as seeking out health care professionals if you have a serious issue.


You maybe asking yourself the following questions.

Why am I so lonely?

Why have I no friends?

Why don’t people like me?

Why can’t I meet a member of the opposite sex to have a long term relationship with?

Why do I always go for the wrong man or woman?

Change to some more positive questions.

How do I meet my soul mate?

How do I make new friends?

How do I have more charisma?

How do I become more assertive with other people?

It’s best to find as few questions to ask yourself as possible and stay focused on these questions.

What other areas of your life aren’t working for you?

I reckon if most people answered the above three questions they would go onto live life’s that they loved.  There may be a specific question that doesn’t fit into the above areas.  Just write down the questions you are asking in that part of your life and change to positive outcomes.

How do I ask questions?

I don’t believe you have to ask the questions out loud.  Just keep repeating them silently in your mind throughout the day.  Be persistent and ask the question until you have the solution.

Write the questions down

As above.  Try and find as few questions as possible that will cause the greatest improvement in your life.  Write them down on a piece of paper.  Read them morning, midday and evening.  Say the questions to your self all day long.   Nobody knows what is going on in your head other than your self.

If I can help you in any way on a specific area of your life give me a shout.

If you have a common goal to achieve, I can work with groups of 2 to 10 people.

Stopping smoking and Weight loss

I can either come to your home or find a suitable local venue to use.  Give me a ring on 01909 282435 to discuss further.

To start with we will have a 10/15 minute group talk on the goal you are trying to achieve.  Once we have looked at the beliefs blocking you from achieving your goal.  I will then relax you into a deep trance using Hypnotherapy and Visualisation exercises. Once in a deep state of trance.  Positive suggestions will be made deep into your subconscious mind.

Tailor-made Hypnotherapy recording

After each group Hypnosis session, you will be provided with the tailor-made recording via a Mp3 download link.  It is so important to listen to this tailor-made Hypnotherapy recording daily between sessions.  Repetition is so important with Hypnotherapy, there are no quick fixes and Hypnotist stage shows are tricking people into false beliefs about Hypnotherapy.


Repetition with Hypnotherapy is so important.  The more that you listen to the tailor-made recording, the deeper you will fall into Hypnosis.  The more you fall into Hypnosis the more the positive suggestions will be acted upon by your subconscious mind.  You will gradually change your beliefs and behaviours and will attain your ideal weight or become a non-smoker.

How often

I recommend a monthly Hypnotherapy session, however daily use of the tailor-made Hypnotherapy recording is important to get maximum effects.   It could take anything from 1 to 10 sessions to achieve your goal dependent on the level of your issue.


One of the benefits of group Hypnotherapy to quit smoking or attain your ideal weight is that you can support each other between sessions, especially if friends.

Slimming clubs

These may work for some people losing weight, but it may take years for many people.  The cost can be excessive when added up.   Break the boom-bust cycle for good using Hypnotherapy.

Stopping smoking

All too often people who stop smoking either transfer the behaviour to overeating or dependency on another crutch, such as nicotine replacement products or vaporisers.  These nicotine replacement products cost and can also be addictive to some degree or people stop using them and start smoking again.   Stop smoking for good with Hypnotherapy with no side effects.

One to one

You may not feel confident to deal with issues with other people in attendance and I do cater for people dealing with the goal on their own.  These sessions allow me to tailor make them more to you as an individual and can result in quicker effects.

Contact me

Give me a ring on 01909 282435 if I can assist you further with stopping smoking or weight loss one to one or group sessions.

For those living out of my radius, I can do telephone consultations and then provide a tailor-made Hypnotherapy recording via Mp3 download link.

All the best





Recently I saw an article about how a number of people had won a dieting competition, but years later were back up to their original weight.   There were a number of pictures of these individuals when they became slimming champions and how they now look.  Today another so called “expert” reckons that it is better to Yo-yo diet than not at all.  I think that is a very negative attitude and not the right attitude to put in people’s minds.  This inspired me to write this article today.

Diet classes

Too often I have seen people losing weight, but then putting it on again months later.  Diet classes seem to have sprung up all over the place where I live in Anston and Dinnington and may work for some.  Diet classes may help many but also leave many frustrated.  Feeling bad about your body image isn’t a good way to motivate you in the long term.

Diet classes seem to be a good stream of income for those who run them.  £5 a person for 52 weeks a year is £250.   Diet classes may seem cheap at £5 a class versus £60 for an Hypnotherapy session.   But let us say on average it takes 3 sessions of Hypnotherapy to help you at £180.   Diet classes become very expensive in the long run.

Some of these national diet classes are selling expensive weight loss meals to individuals as well, rather than teaching you simple and effective diets to lose weight.

I suspect diet classes are happy for their members not to be too successful at attaining their ideal weight, as it is the loss of an income stream.  Personally, I like people to advance as quickly as possible even though I have lost a revenue stream.

Newtons third law

For every action, there is an equal an opposite reaction.  Forcing yourself to do something in the short time may work, but in the longer term, you will be back where you started.  I am reluctant to stop people smoking in one session, as in most cases they will substitute smoking for another behaviour and add weight instead.  Weight loss of 2lbs a week is the most effective for long-term sustainable weight loss.

Gastric band hypnotherapy

I have always said that this is another fad, that people jump onto hoping for a quick fix solution.  However, a customer once came to see me after having had a real gastric band fitted because they started to put weight on after a time.   They were forcing food down using a blender.   After three sessions of Hypnotherapy, they were able to release the air from their gastric band and eat normally again as they were losing weight naturally.


How would Hypnotherapy work?  You can see me face to face in Sheffield.

Everybody is an individual with me.  So the first part of any one to one Hypnotherapy session is finding out more about your circumstances.

You are then relaxed into a deep state of Hypnosis using language and guided meditations.  Once in a deep state of Hypnosis positive suggestions are made into your subconscious mind.

The 2nd most important thing is to be provided with a tailor made Hypnotherapy session after each session of Hypnotherapy.  It is so important to use this recording daily between sessions.  I recommend a monthly repeat session, it can take from 1 to 5 sessions to be in complete control of your weight.


Learning to relax is a key essential to losing weight.  As you relax daily using the tailor made Hypnotherapy recording, you will start to carry that feeling over into your daily life.

Repressed emotions.

As you learn to relax correctly you will start to find negative feeling about your past being released by your subconscious mind.  As you release negative memories from your past, you will face these as an older wiser person.  You may have failed a number of times in the past to lose weight.  Your childhood programming maybe a reason why you overeat.  Or you may overeat due to feelings of low self-esteem or boredom.   If the negative feelings aren’t inside you, they can’t trigger you to overeat.

Positive suggestions

Positive suggestions made while in a deep state of Hypnosis will have a greater effect on your subconscious mind.    Your beliefs and behaviours will gradually change.  The daily repetition is so important.  Positive suggestions can be made to help you become more motivated to exercise regularly.

Positive suggestions can also be made so that you eat smaller portions and also so that you choose food more wisely.  It isn’t necessary to buy expensive diet replacement meals.  You can eat sensibly and  have decent size portions that fill you with the right nutrients to have more energy.


You may have to change your lifestyle to accommodate your weight loss.  But you will find yourself becoming more assertive and finding balance in your life.  You may have to make an odd drastic change in your life, if that part of your life isn’t supporting you, you will find the confidence to do this if necessary.

Support and group

One good thing about diet classes is the support network.   I can achieve this by seeing groups of 10 ladies in Sheffield, Rotherham and Worksop and doing a tailor made session for the group.   It will work a little like one to one Hypnotherapy, but be a little diluted down.   After the session you will all be provided with a tailor made Hypnotherapy session via a Mp3 download link.   Rather than having to go to diet classes for years on end, 10 group sessions of Hypnotherapy would be an absolute maximum for you.

I can work with groups in the Dinnington area or can even visit you in South Yorkshire or North Nottinghamshire at a suitable venue.

Further afield and international.

If you don’t live close to me, I can do a consultation over the telephone and then send you a tailor made Hypnotherapy recording via Mp3 download link

Mp3 downloads

I do have a number of off the shelf Mp3 downloads on my Hypnotherapy website shop.  You can purchase my weight loss recording, but do set aside daily time for the next month or two if you want sustainable results.
