"Perfectionism often lays beneath procrastination, although not always"

Can Hypnotherapy Improve Productivity?

There can be any number of reasons why we procrastinate and at sometime or another, you will have put off doing a task until the last minute. Even though these tasks may well have been important, like meeting a project deadline, instead we seek out and look for distractions.

Some procrastinators will tell themselves that they work better when under pressure. If, I am honest, I have told myself this and as I approach the deadline to have my new website ready, and it is only through the help of a very understanding web designer, that I have gotten close to finishing something that I could have completed weeks ago.

Will I feel better when I finally complete the task?

Of course, I will, there will be a real sense of satisfaction and I know I will have a better approach to my next project, as I have started to work upon my own personal mindset through the use of hypnosis. I will look back and say, why did I not start sooner.

"Perfectionist often put off doing a task, to avoid the possibility of underperforming or wait until everything is perfect to proceed"

Perfectionism often lays beneath procrastination, although not always.

Perfectionist often put off doing a task, to avoid the possibility of underperforming or wait until everything is perfect to proceed.

I have seen at least one good TED talk on this subject, and I cannot help thinking about my inner chimp, having read ‘The Chimp Paradox’ by Professor Steve Peters.

As I ready myself for my next project, I have invested in a Simple Elephant Planner and I will make use of clearly defined goals. As a qualified Coach, I enjoy helping clients to plan and above all else, holding individuals accountable and I really would recommend seeking out an accountability partner, whether that is me, or someone working on a similar project like completing a degree.

Having a to do list can help, although, this can sometimes lead to overwhelm, and fuel the distraction monster.

Past failures can be another element in how we choose to proceed.

It would be easy for me to bullet points an extensive list, do you have this problem or that, instead, I want you to realise I understand how the mind works and we all have different reasons why we procrastinate.

I am skilled in several different areas and whatever your reasons might be for reading this page, know that help is at hand. Left me help you discover the best solution for you.

Why choose me to help?

Around 1% of UK Hypnotherapists complete an advanced hypnotherapy qualification and whilst I am unsure of the actual numbers within each professional body, and even less so overseas, I know that this is the case with the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council and within my membership of the General Hypnotherapy Register. I have made the effort and investment required to complete this next phase of my professional development and can call myself an Advanced Practitioner.

In studying for my Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma (NQF 6), I was fortunate enough to study with ex-Sheffield Hallam University lecturer Doctor Paul Peace, Philosophy (PHD), Psychology, and Karen Bartle who holds a master’s degree in Health/Medical Psychology.

Throughout my career as a Hypnotherapist, I have been fortunate to study with people whom I consider to be some of the best in the business and in addition to studying with Karen and Paul, I trained with Matthew Ferguson and he has worked with Olympic athletes, Doctors and Psychiatrists to name but a few professions and he has over 25 years’ experience of Hypnosis and Clinical Hypnotherapy, and he also shared some fantastic knowledge and expertise with me.

I was also, fortunate enough to study with Nick Davies who created the BLAST Technique®

The studying I completed with Nick, sees me able to resolve negative memories through eye movement, and this is one of the most valuable skills I possess. I have studied numerous times with him and there are less than 50 Advanced BLAST Technique practitioner® in the world (3/2/21), of which I am one.

In short, I have an Advanced Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy, I am a Master Practitioner of Neuro-linguistic programming, a skilled eye movement therapist, a qualified Advanced BLAST Technique practitioner®, as well as also being a Motivation Therapist and Coach. I have helped thousands of people and I am confident that my help will positively make a difference, however, rather take my word for this, I would encourage you to read the reviews left by others, you can do this by clicking the link below.



So, if you are looking for a skilled hypnotherapist, with a wealth of experience in helping people to excel in their chosen discipline or field, then I recommend you get in touch, knowing that I can help wherever in the world you might be.
