Do you dread getting up in the morning for work? Or are you up and out the door before the alarm goes off, raring to go?
I was back to the office today, catching up with appointments I had to postpone before my holiday. Loved catching up with all they’ve been up to and, like a proud Mum, listening to all their achievements so far.
I am lucky enough to have a job I love, and most importantly I get to feel proud when I make a positive difference to someone’s life.
Have you ever wanted to change careers maybe, become that Lion keeper or boat maker… so many careers are there for the taking.
I use hypnotherapy to build up individuals’ self esteem, confidence and even interview confidence.
If you feel it’s time for a change and feel you are missing that certain factor to achieve it, just give me a call and I’ll help you get the ball rolling.
After seeing a couple of clients today, it reminded me why I think I am good at what I do. With all my clients, whether they are hypnotherapy, Personal Training or sports massage clients, I try to put myself in their shoes, so to speak.
No I don’t have some strange foot fetish before you start to wonder, I mean in the metaphorical sense.
Let’s take, for example, a highly skilled executive that comes to see me. When I first met him he came across as bold, confident and sometimes quite abrupt.
What I might find underneath is an unconfident introvert inside an extrovert shell.
What I try to do with my skills is unravel the layers of protection that have been built up, a bit like an onion with its outer layer thickened by the environment.
I help take the layers off one by one until I reach the centre, then, and almost as important, I help them to use those layers to make something even better.
So if you would like a hand unpeeling that onion, I have the utensils to give you a hand. I’ll even give you a tissue if it makes your eyes water. As we know teardrops are made of 1% water
So are you one of these people that sleep soundly or are you up and down all night, unable to sleep soundly?
The clients I’ve been working with report that the more they think about trying to sleep, they more they can’t sleep.
I use hypnotherapy to teach relaxation techniques to use whilst nodding off but also encourage them to forget about trying to sleep!
I suggest maybe reading a book, writing down the thought in a notebook or diary.
You get what you focus on so if you focus on not being able to sleep, then…
So if you want to sleep more than 40 winks or as soundly as a baby why give hypnotherapy a try?
May sleep envelop you as a bed sheet floating gently down, tickling your skin and removing every worry. Reminding you to consider only this moment.
Too much talking last week, now I’m losing my voice. It’s so important to remember one’s own advice sometimes and take a ‘time out’.
Put down the phones, pack away the computers and allow yourself some ‘me time’.
I am as guilty as everyone else of picking up the phone to check, just in case! Tonight I can’t I’ve left it in Tinsley Green, and do I miss it? No I don’t!
There are so many ways you can just enjoy the moment. Take a walk in the country with your phone turned off, meditate, or book in for a hypnotherapy relaxation session with me. Even if you don’t feel you need hypnotherapy for anything in particular, that 30 minute time out is so refreshing.
Imagine being able to go into a meeting focused, full of energy and refreshed.
Hypnotherapy lunchtime power booster, now there’s an idea.
If you want to take your lunch break imagining you’re on a beach, or relaxing in a hammock planning your next strategy, give me a call and I’ll give you a lift up to that perfect place to relax for you.
Not so long a go I visited a friend of mine who is a medium, who told me about some changes that would happen in my life. Now some of you may not believe in mediums. I am open to all experiences and it’s probably why I’ve ended up doing such amazing things in my life.
I was looking at my bucket list today and realised that I have almost ticked everything off my list, so I’ll need to start a new one soon.
So what’s left on my list? I’ve still got to buy my converted barn, so I think I may have to work 24:7 (or smartly) to achieve that by the end of 2013, or I need to find a rich husband (laughs out loud). Funnily enough I feel the first one is more likely, as I look in the mirror at this rather independent individual known as myself. Although I am still looking for that pint sized blonde snowboarder, but that’s another story.
Have you got goals or a bucket list but not the self-confidence to go out and do them?
Why not give me a call? Hypnotherapy may be life changing for you. It certainly was for me.
I like to think of my change in career from employee to being my own boss, like the journey of a mighty oak tree. Last year, in June, I planted an acorn into the universe when I set up Becky Wells Limited. Over the past six months I have been feeding it and nurturing it, helping it to start from a strong foundation.
In the last couple of months I have really started to see the roots start to stretch out, testing unknown grounds, some never making it further than a few yards, others continually expanding.
Each root, even if it doesn’t survive, provides feedback for me on routes to avoid or to take extra care of in the future.
Now that the roots have firmly taken hold in the ground, I look forward to watching this tree grow into a mighty oak.
As it grows it will provide shelter and energy for others and that, to me, is just as important as having something that can last for many years to come.
So if you want to spin a web on my tree to give yourself a rest, or just climb aboard for help looking into your future from my top branches, then feel free to grab a branch and enjoy the view with me.

Such a small word, but it can make a huge difference to how you go about your daily life. For example “if I go out and talk to that chairman of the local women’s group, I may create a whole new network of links”. In comparison to “When I go and see the Chairman, I will form new networks”.
The self-doubting “if” is like a little nagging gremlin on your shoulder saying ‘what if they don’t like me; what if I can’t answer the questions they throw at me?’.
I always go with the ”when”. ‘When’ I go to that meeting I know that I have a great foundation of knowledge from inspirational sources. I do not know everything and I know I am not expected to. I like my head to be small enough to still fit through a doorway. I also go there expecting to absorb more information from those I meet to make me an even better therapist.
In the career I have chosen I always expect to learn, and I don’t mean from textbooks or courses.
Take time to observe the people you work with, my job is never going to be 9-5 and to be honest. I’d have no idea what to do with my spare time if that was the case.
Be a listener… be a ‘When’ person… not an ‘if’ person.
I look forward to bumping into you ‘When’ our paths cross because I know they will.

I wonder if the type of art we love is linked to the person that we are? I absolutely love Salvador Dali’s work, my favourite painting is the ‘Persistence of Memory’. Even if you haven’t heard of this you’ve probably seen it. The clock is melted over a twig. Lots of gadget shops have been selling these clocks this year.
I love surreal but understandable images. Maybe this is how my subconscious feels to me sometimes.
What is your favourite artist? Can you link that to how you feel within yourself?
Do you have an emotion you just can’t get the better of? Can you describe it as a piece of artwork? Consider hypnotherapy, it helps the subconscious mind take control again.
It may sound strange but you’d be surprised what a painting can tell me.
I am quite a visual person so painting a picture in my mind of what I see helps me to lead you to your own easel to paint your new and positive future.
Unleash the artist within and give me a call.

I was listening to the local radio station this morning and they were talking about how, as we get older, we lose that childhood magic that encourages us to go out rollerskating, playing hide and seek in the local woods and leap frogging over the bollards.
The radio station said ‘we all feel as we get old we need to grow up’. Someone forgot to tell me. Some of my friends see me as a 21st century Peter Pan. Does that bother me? No. I’m pleased. I hope that having magic in my life gives people a sprinkle of fairy dust to go and do the same.
I went out rollerskating the other day with a friend and felt the same excitement that I did 20 years ago. If my friends’ kids ask me to play hide and seek, I am the first to climb in the washing basket to hide.
That Peter Pan spirit is what has lead me on my amazing journey. How many of you have wished upon that second star to the right? I wished, I flew and I’ve been there and done that and I’ll probably head back to Neverland several times this year taking a few friends along the way.
So if you want to go a round of ‘follow my leader’ with me, let me unlock your inner child. Mine is an Elf and a cheeky one at that.
So grab my hand, a quick sprinkle of Tinkerbell’s dust, and we’ll be off.

Sussex, and probably most of the UK, has a glow tonight as the whiteness of the snow lights up the usually dark night. I love the glow at night. It has that almost mystical feel.
How many of you went out and enjoyed the weather today? I went out and took some pictures of the amazing countryside and wildlife around us. You can find some of them on my twitter feed @beckyjoewells
Vistas, which recently were looking quite sad and unloved, were turned into views, which looked like the opening scenes of Narnia.
My dream one day is to have a converted barn with a big roaring log fire burning and my Labrador at my side! It will happen, I’m working on it!
Do you find if difficult to look forward to the future? Did you know hypnotherapy may help you. It can help you to unlock that inner self, that can then say ‘Why not let’s go for it”. I used hypnosis many years ago for this and look how far I’ve got now.
Ask yourself where would you like to be this time next year, in five years or maybe just next week.
If you find it hard to answer this yourself, just give me a call and allow me to give you a hand looking for your answer. You’ll have the answer in some part of your mind, you just need to open the right page in your book.
