These days there are many ways modern expectant women are planning to manage the pain of birthing their babies and this occasionally includes one method you've probably never really thought of.

Hypnobirthing is becoming more and more popular because many mums, feel that it helps them relax and prepare for the process of childbirth. Going into hypnosis allows the mind to get into a tranquil state before childbirth. Hypnotherapy for childbirth puts the mum to be in a relaxed mental state that helps keep her calm while focusing on positive feelings rather than outside distractions and the physical pain her body may be experiencing.

Expecting parents can go through a childbirth hypnosis program, where they learn new positive and reinforcing words to use during the process in order to break the association of birth with pain and discomfort. Since the brain controls our bodies, repeating these affirming mantras during labor can help put the mind in a calm trance like state which in turns minimises the feeling of pain and the stress on the baby.

Celebrity mums such as Gisele Bündchen, Jessica Alba, Angelina Jolie and even the Duchess of Cambridge have been using hypnobirthing to assist with the pain free birth of their children.

Are you an expectant mum looking for a way to manage the pain of childbirth in a safe and effective way? Every woman is different and it all really depends on your body and what you're most comfortable with. The best way to learn more and find out if childbirth hypnosis is for you; is to consult with a professional hypnotist in your area.

Unlock your Bitcoin Fortune!

Recovered Bitcoin

Everyone has a hard luck story about losing their Bitcoins. Whether it be throwing out an old computer or suffering a hack, nothing compares to the most frustrating situation of all - you have your wallet but you can't remember your password. With hypnosis, however, I can help you remember that password.

Fortune recently reported that a study by Chainalysis, a digital forensics firm, indicated that between 2.8 and 3.8 million Bitcoins are lost forever. A percentage of these lost coins can be attributed to people that have forgotten their password.

In November 2017, Elon Musk
tweeted he has forgotten where he kept part of a Bitcoin sent to him by his friend a few years ago. Even one of the most intelligent men on the planet is not immune to being forgetful. Hypnosis is also a great tool to help people remember misplaced items. While Elon is probably not going to lose much sleep over misplacing part of a Bitcoin, I'm sure plenty of people would like to have part of a Bitcoin at its current price.

It was reported by the
Wall Street Journal in December 2017 another Bitcoin Investor, Philip Neumeier had forgotten the password to his wallet. In an effort to recover the password, Neumeier built a supercomputer to use a "brute force" attack to crack the password. He bought 15 Bitcoins back in 2013 for $260 USD ($325 AUD). At current prices this would be worth $191,000 USD ($240,000 AUD). He mentioned it would probably take the supercomputer about 300 years to work through all the possible combinations of letters, numbers and symbols. I'm sure Bitcoin will be even worth more money then. Can you imagine how frustrated he must feel? If only he was open to using hypnosis…

Wall Street Journal also reported the case of Youssef Sarhan, whose dad formatted his old laptop where he kept his password. Mr Sarhan said "It's a slippery slope to going crazy. It's like trying to crack open your own brain. (2017)" Thankfully using hypnosis to remember a lost password is not that painful; more on the simple process later.

But the biggest reported loss of Bitcoin was by Welshman James Howells from Newport. An IT worker, Howells mined 7,500 Bitcoin in 2009 on an old laptop prior to the requirement of specialised computer hardware. However, after a clean-up of his office, he threw the hard drive containing the coins in the rubbish. At current prices, that hard drive is worth $95M USD ($120M AUD) … and it is buried under tonnes of garbage in the Newport dump. Unfortunately, the council won't even let him search the dump for it. You have to feel sorry for poor James.

I use a three step process to retrieve the password from your subconscious mind:

  1. Relax your mind.
  2. Rewind your mind.
  3. Use visualisation techniques.

Consequently, the first and most important step is to relax your mind. Hypnosis is one the quickest and easiest ways to relax your mind. The law of reversed effect (Coues Law) states the harder we try and remember something, the more difficult and frustrating it becomes to remember. When you relax and stop making a conscious effort to remember, what you are searching for will "pop back into" your mind.

Once you are in a hypnotic trance, I use time line therapy to rewind your mind back to the moment when you created your password.
The Human Memory website suggests: Long-term memories are widely distributed throughout the cortex and not just in one part of the brain. Memories are stored as groups of neurons that fire together in the same pattern that created the original situation. They are also encoded several times for redundancy, just like your external hard drive backup. They are stored in various parts of your cortex, so if one engram (memory trace) is wiped out, there are alternative pathways through which the memory may still be retrieved.

Finally, I use visualisation techniques to help jog your subconscious mind into remembering your password. The picture superiority effect states we are more likely to remember pictures and images rather than words. Using visualisation techniques, I can trigger the memories of the pictures and images associated with your password.

So, if you are reading this blog and have a wallet of bitcoins you can't access because of a forgotten password, book a
free consultation or contact me now and let me help you unlock your Bitcoin fortune. I can even do a hypnosis session over the internet via Skype, so you don't need to live in Brisbane for me to help you.

Why do we eat Junk Food?

Junk Food

A study published by Dr Benjamin Schuz, of the University of Tasmania; entitled "Stimulus control and affect in dietary behaviours. An intensive longitudinal study", has determined a number of factors that make it hard to give up junk food.

The study involved 53 adults over the period of 10 days, and looked at the factors that influenced eating and drinking habits.

A summary of the main findings were as follows:


If you have food easily available to you, you are more likely to eat it. So that packet of Tim Tams you have stashed away for guests, those Lollies in your pantry or even those fundraising chocolates at work make it easy for you to eat junk food. You are more likely to consume them whether you are hungry or not. So if you don't want to eat junk food don't purchase them in the first place. As the saying goes: "Out of sight, out of mind".


Seeing other people eat, psychologically gives us permission to eat whether we are hungry or not. This can be observed in food courts where people are generally always eating whether it's meal time or not. A 30 year study (Framingham Heart Study) indicated that we become like the people we spend our time with. So if you are surrounded with people eating junk food you will more likely eat junk food. But the opposite is also true, if you spend time with healthy people you are more likely to eat healthy. So to avoid this at work, make your own healthy lunches and don't go out to the food court to eat.


Some people use food to relieve stress, to cope with depression, sadness, loneliness or boredom. This will then trigger even worse feelings of guilt for the overeating. But this is just a learnt behaviour that we either learnt while were children. Or became influenced by media to feel better after we eat junk food. There are a few ways to control comfort eating; firstly choose portion controlled treats. And secondly identify when you are feeling down or sad and learn new ways to cheer yourself up. This is where hypnotherapy can help; to change your bad eating habit and remove negative emotions.


Put simply, keeping yourself busy helps you control your food intake. By engaging your mind and body in activities other than eating, resulted in fewer snacks being consumed. This explains why we eat more at night when we are at home relaxing on the couch.


Everyone loves the company of other people; especially when you have an engaging conversation. The study actually found when we are around friends and family there is a significant decrease in consumption of snacks. So when you are due for a snack or meal seek out company, it's another simple way to control the amount of food you eat.
