‘I Have Two Actions You Can Take Today Which I Hope Will Excite You… But PLEASE Read Through This Blog Because I am Looking For ‘Go-For-It’ Venture Partners!!
Let me first of all wish you a Happy and Prosperous New Year with the New Years greetings I sent to my friends with pictures of me and my family on Christmas Day.
I Mainly Want To Talk About YOU … BUT Let Me Briefly Explain What and Why I Am On This Retirement Project
The main reason that I wanted to start with that recent picture is that I am keen for you understand my current health situation.
I want to work with some of you that are reading this so you should know all about me.
That is me up front, hopefully looking ok for a 72 year old guy, with my daughter Zoe (Art Curator and University Lecturer), my son Tom (teacher – computer science) and my better half, Babs (Health Visitor)
So all is good…
Mmm – well not totally
We all have issues, be them health, relationships, money etc and I have my own specific personal challenge at the moment BUT it is not being allowed to get in my way. I have to say that the family you see with me in the photo are the most supportive and caring family I could possibly have and are as positive as I am about my current health problem.
I have cancer and am having clinical trial immunotherapy treatment which I have been having at the Royal Free Hospital in London every two weeks for treatment.
Many of you will NOT know me but it is easy to find out whatever you like in my blog where I write, hopefully with some humour about my life travels and travails.
I hope if you read that article, you will understand the ‘WHAT and WHY’ section below.
****[I had a scan on New Years eve and I will find out when I return for treatment on the 14th January, exactly what is the progress of my treatment and the cancer.]
The WHAT and WHY
I spent my main career working life as a registered nurse [physical and psychology and mental health].
When I retired from from general nursing in 1996 I set up a business developing websites.
One of the websites I developed was for a Clinical Hypnotherapist Adam Eason [self-hypnosis, cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness and so on] .
And now I am getting the best training of all, about the link between mental and physical interaction, AS A PATIENT.
I now have accumulated knowledge about the incredibly intimate relationship between the physical and mental aspects of health. The knowledge I have now I so wish that I had in my early nursing days.
BUT what I want is for you to have the same access to all the therapeutic resources that I have, to to ‘on-the-shoulder’support, advice and hypnosis sessions from top hypnotherapists.
I am passionate about holistic care and want to get as much help as I have from trained talk therapists.
‘Self-Hypnosis Streaming’ is the Membership website I am really pleased to introduce to as many people as possible.
In other blog articles you will find why I think that this membership area can offer self-development and mental behavioural support.
My 2020 Goal -To Be Bought With Online Income Only
Yes that is quite an ask – BUT the preparation has been done and I am ready to fly with this.
I have set up a streaming service of Self-Hypnosis audios and videos which I want to promote with a team of Affiliates and Joint Venture partners.
YES – I am on the recruit!! This blog is the start of my streaming project.
There is no way on earth that I could do this on my own, and every message I put out there, will be to find people with ambition and determination to overcome whatever is holding them back.
This is a Win-Win situation and I want to be paying YOU well.
The reason – I will be getting closer to my motorhome.
There is no excuse – as you can see I am not letting health issues slow me down. Just use whatever is available in the membership website to motivate you, make you more creativity, overcome any behaviour problems etc. No excuses – just take action and things can change.
I told you about my health challenge so that you can see I am not letting anything get in the way of what I want to achieve this year.
My blog in two days time will tell you more about becoming an affiliate and working with me for 50% or higher commissions.
So What Is Your Goal? Maybe … Positive Mindset AND…
I nearly did a second image with a female on it. He/She is only a cartoon though.
I really would love to hear from you.
If one of your resolutions is to earn an online income. Well do I need to say it? – Just keep tuned.

It is three months since I wrote my last blog post which was about taking up cancer screening.
Since then, I have been having my cancer treatment at the Royal Free Hospital in London. I have had lots of travel, lots of examinations, lots of side effects. BUT I still have a positive message for you!!
One in two of us will get cancer sometime in our life and this blog is aimed at those of you who are newly diagnosed or if you are caring for somebody who has is having cancer treatment.
The treatment will take time and it does affect your life …. No getting away from that!
The story so far…
Six years ago I had a kidney removed when cancer of that kidney was diagnosed.
It was about this February last year that I went to my surgeon who removed my kidney six years ago.
I was well and he was expecting to discharge me from his care, but he said I had better have a scan first.
I was called back very quickly after that scan and was told that a tumour had grown in that area and that it needed more than surgery – I needed to be referred to Oncology.
It was a surprising and sobering moment !!
It was pointed out to me that my cancer cells were non clear cells (not good!!) which meant that current cancer treatments had only a 20% of slowing down the tumour growth and spread.
But God moves in mysterious ways.
That local Oncologist Consultant had an Oncologist friend about to start a Clinical Trial at the Royal Free Hospital, London in combination with a German University and a large Pharmaceutical company.
They are using two immuno-therapy drugs (they have long names but I call them Ippi and Nimmi) together for my particular situation and my screening (many tests) showed I would have a better chance of control of the cancer with this new treatment. No guarantees of course – BUT an option that I accepted even though the daunting 28 page consent form had pages of information about possible side effects.
This is the moment – you realise this is all real and life changing.
I remember thinking as I walked into the Oncology Department, that I had always hoped, that I would never have to be referred to this department. But what can you do?
BUT I was quickly surprised...
I want to take you behind the scenes a bit in this blog post and offer as much assurance as I can that you quickly realise everybody is totally on your side. The staff are very aware of the emotional pressures that show in so many different ways depending on the patient.
And I must say, I’ve been so incredibly surprised with the Oncology Department care viewed from a professional background in nursing.
My background is nursing (it was my career).
My own nursing career was very technical – typical male thing. I worked in intensive care, accident and emergency, operating theatres and urological surgical wards
All very good stuff…
Great work which I incredibly enjoyed and it gave me great satisfaction.
When we had an unconscious patient with tubes everywhere who was not able to recognise us or talk to us – there was something missing for me. Knowing the person!
The medical and nursing teams absolutely wanted in every way for that patient to survive and they did everything possible, however long was needed.
However – the moment that patients recovered from that intense work of course they moved to the rehabilitation areas of the hospital for personal care where the patients personal needs could be met.
So I got a technical impression of what nursing was all about. How wrong was I. On the whole I missed that more personal approach to caring.
What a Difference with Medical and Nursing Teams in Oncology.
As I’ve been watching in the oncology clinics and ward, I’ve seen really great care. More importantly great personalized care.
As I have sat in the waiting rooms and watched I have found myself thinking I wish I had spent some time doing this sort of nursing, solving everyday problems.
The cancer is the bug bear the nasty, nasty piece of work and the treatment unfortunately has to be aggressive to attack it.
There are different treatments, radiotherapy, chemotherapy and now the new man in the block – immuno-therapy.
This modern treatment is systematic, it’s not like the old chemotherapy which were drugs trying to kill the invading cells.
Immuno-therapy – which works inside the body to build the body’s defenses to stop the growth and spread of the tumour.
As the immuno-therapy treatment is systemic you can get side effects in all parts of your body and it is those side effects that need monitoring and solutions applied when they appear.
The problem is that – time wise – they are very random and patients need to observe and note any body changes and work with the oncology team to resolve each problem as they occur.
Some Of My Side Effects
Just a few – but typical examples.
After my first cycle of treatment I quite quickly got an itchy rash. The rashes were spread out on arms, legs, and worse, my back. Of course that meant sorting out creams, emollients etc.
Great fun getting your clothes on properly afterward with shirt sticking to your back. However – various creams gave total relief from the itching.
Easily solved – just tick it off – that was a challenge now under control.
Unbelievably – Loss Of Appetite
I love my food and yet I couldn’t – WHAT! . Nutrition is essential to assist recovery.
You know how it feels when you have eaten too much – that Christmas afternoon feel. For a couple of weeks I felt like that from day to day. My wife got me fruit in jelly, omelettes etc. But of course there is advice around and the MacMillan Cancer Support website and leaflets of volunteer staff advice at the clinic offer the answers.
They have seen them all before!
Here in the UK we have a major charity MacMillan Cancer Support and I got a nutrition leaflet from them.
In fact MacMillan is a must for all cancer issues including financial support.
My wife Babs and I also had advice from a hospital dietitian who suggested adding supplement up juices – Fortijuices and also using anti emetic for a few days.
Oh and there was lots of other good advice.
Just ask – there are answers out there for all of the challenges – get it sorted and just tick it off.
My Worst Challenge To Date – Painful and an EXPLOSION
[This should be X Rated – Constipation the subject]
Let’s lighten up and have a smile at my expense – as there are times we are pushed into abnormal situations which we would rather not be happening – but you are there – and there is no way out but to take extra measures. You will smile about it all later.
Probably because I had an issue with my nutrition I went several days without being able to go to the loo.
I will spare you the details but it got to the stage where everything was so hard and impacted and very uncomfortable.
The only way to avoid having to go to the hospital (some embarrassment for me a former nurse) to get sorted out was to go to the pharmacy and get glycerin suppositories.
The instructions on the pack were to wet and insert suppository. Lay on the bed for 15 minutes while the suppository melts.
Easy! NOT! !!
Every minute felt like five. I put the TV on to try to block out the crampy painful moments.
Five minutes… The thoughts were there – this must be like baby delivery.
Nine minutes… Wow – that was bad!!
Ten minutes… How far is is to the loo – 15 metres – why didn’t I put paper down on the carpet?
Thirteen minutes... Where is the cat – he is always laying in the corridor? Don’t fall over the cat.
Fourteen minutes and 30 secs – that will DO!!!
There is no other word to describe it – EXPLOSION!
The relief was immediate.
Sore – very sore. But utter, utter Relief.
The lesson of course had been learned. I had to sort out what laxative regime I needed to prevent a further episode like that.
The doctor’s take on it was amusing. “There are three approaches – laxatives are softeners, shovers or soft AND shove”
Anyway I have it sorted the prevention out for my next cycle of treatment – you can bet!
I have ticked it off.
Some Side Effects Will Only Found From Blood Tests
Whatever therapy treatment you are having I can assure you will be having regular blood tests which will show up other bodily changes. AND – yes they need treating.
My thyroid, renal function and liver have been affected by the immuno-therapy . I have had to empty a cupboard to get all of my medications acquired into order.
I have had to double my intake of water – which is ok except it is a bit of a problem overnight.
BUT WORSE THAN THAT!!
There can be some sacrifices and changes you may have to make.
My big one IS – what am I going to drink with my mates down the pub on a Friday evening?
I am now sampling non alcoholic beers, lager and cider.
My Cancer Treatment Also Had a Positive Side Effect on my General Health in Fact – a Pleasant Shock
I have had high blood pressure for or nearly all of my adult life a genetic gift from both of my parents I have had treatment for it as far back as I can remember.
There was a chance I would not get on to this clinical trial if my blood pressure had been so high during my screening.
Two weeks into my treatment my blood pressure dropped quite dramatically over two days – so much so that I found myself looking out for signs of internal bleeding.
My local GP has taken me off of my regular blood pressure medication and and as he had my health history he was also surprised.
Currently I have lost my florid looking face and for about four weeks the blood pressure remains low – will it last?
Very pleasant SHOCK!!!
Family, Friends and But More Importantly YOU
One of the first things you have to do when you are diagnosed with some cancer is to decide who you are going to tell. Prognoses of different cancers can vary tremendously and it all depends on your support network and your personal emotional response to your news. Here is a good article to help you decide what is right for you.‘Telling Friends and Family That You’ve Been Diagnosed With Cancer’
I will tell you about my own decision and the reason for my approach.
I was clear that I needed to be totally open about my cancer and was totally easy with accepting that.
After all my blog is all about physical and mental health. Well equipped as I have was a nurse for a career, have studied mental health as I have worked with Adam Eason a clinical hypnotherapist with all his teaching in a college of hypnosis AND I have been the other side of the sheets as a patient.
The patient bit I have to say is the most revealing as I fully understand that even with all my previous knowledge it is totally different to treat yourself and I found I needed as much help sorting out my side effect issues as any other patient.
My support has been exceptional and has been good for a number of reasons.
My wife and grown up children are open about whatever any of us is having to care for. I won’t go on telling you how good they are – it is just said by saying they are lovingly there.
I have told all our friends (in fact I have told the world on my blog). It makes life easier. I have tried to carry on with whatever domestically and socially. But one evening I was not feeling well, and a quick call to cancel a dinner party we had organised was not misunderstood in anyway. We have met friends whenever for walks or NOT.
Of incredibly great importance to me is my faith. My God gives me strength and hope. Friends at church pray and in fact I mentioned that I was having problems eating to a couple at Sunday morning service and on Monday they turned up with basket of fruit and a Blessing Card. Touched – YES!
I have also learned over the years of working with Hypnotherapist Adam skills to turn off that chatter in the brain. Most of that brain chatter is so negative. I have learned how to concentrate and reinforce the positive emotions. I know from working with patients all of my nursing career that those that were positive got well faster than those that worried negatively about everything. I can put on a mindfulness audio and totally relax and still the mind. What a tonic!!
What About You?
You may have a equally good set up and support OR you may NOT.
The treatments take time and you may need temporary help.
I plead with you to seek and ask for help.
Your medical practice and Macmillan’s is the place to start. They can recommend groups of people who meet with other people with long term care. Everybody and every type of cancer is different and your difficulties will need personal tailoring of care. This is what I have found the Oncology Departments are exceptionally good at.
Also – many people who are alone will worry more about the challenges at every stage. You will be more likely to see any new side effect as something awful instead of something new to get a grip off and ticked off. You will get a special phone number to use whenever necessary to talk to someone in the Oncology Department if you are needing advice.
Your Mental State
What you will find me going on and on about in my blogs is your mental health. What is going on in your head is so personal and crucial to how you accept and take on board all that important to a successful outcome to your treatment.
If you look through all of my blogs you will see that I am enthusiastic about the mental health help that can be achieved with talk therapies. Anxiety, stress, panic attacks, low self esteem, lack of confidence, insomnia, motivation etc etc can be so helped with self-hypnosis sessions recorded by clinical hypnotherapists
IN FACT I HAVE A COUPLE OF AUDIOS TO SEND YOU
I am offering anyone a couple of audios to listen to.
One is a relaxation hypnosis session and the other is a self-hypnosis for stress recording. Just contact me and I will happily send them on to you.
DO ASK – get all the help you can!

Here are the products that I promised you in the blog
My problem was transportation. I live 150 miles from the hospital that I am getting my day care treatment in.
Going into London by car is a congestion lottery and time lottery, finding a parking space lottery.
Public transport coach – cheap but same congestion problems as car.
Train expensive because I had to travel at peak times. £115 for a hospital appointment and double that cost when Babs my wife was with me.
To get the train I had to get up at 4:30 to get to the hospital early because the day consisted of getting bloods taken early,
Doctors examination appointment later in the morning.
All before the therapeutic drugs can be manufactured by the pharmacy department (preparation time approx two hours).
The drugs are then delivered to the day care ward for afternoon infusion.
My treatment infusions took about two half hours to administer.
Then the 115 mile trip home.
At the time to travel London tubes are packed to capacity with head home commuters and so are the trains. One trip I had to travel half of the journey standing. Not ideal.
So that was not good but there was worse to come!
After my third cycle of treatment I had a set back in that the ongoing treatment had to stop as the bloods went squew whiff!
One of the treatment drugs had caused my liver to become inflammed and not functioning correctly and that need steroid treatment. The dose of steroids has to be varied depending on response and that needed bloods taken frequently – 3-4 days apart.
Travelling up to London every four days when not at my best was the prospect.
BUT guess what – as no specialist immuno-therapy treatment was to be administered the Oncology team in London organised an Oncology department in Bournemouth (a small 10 mile drive from my home) to organise those blood tests and liaise with the research team in London.
What can I say again!
Totally focused appropriate care.
I could add other personal help given but I HOPE I have made my point.
I can’t of course speak for Oncology Departments elsewhere but I expect they are similar in approach.
The story continues of course – but there are two final points I would like to make.
The treatment for my cancer started in November and as you have seen above I had a few things to get ticked off and sorted.
Big QUESTION – especially as I am on a clinical trial – IS IT WORKING
Last week I had a scan which is the only way to find out.
It is very early days but the report from the scan was really encouraging – no tumour growth or spread! We are not looking for cure of the tumour that is there – the objective is to get it under control.
Of course all cancer patients – no matter what treatment they are receiving all have the same wait and expecatation for good results. Not EASY !
We just all have to be very patient in waiting for those results
A Final Comment – Kindness
I have been to Poole Oncology Unit, Bournemouth Oncology Unit and of course my main treatment Oncology Department at the Royal Free Hospital in London with my medical team led by Dr Boletti.
In all cases they were professional and positive with hard working staff. Somehow they always made time for all of the patients – never seeming to tire from their questions.
I could go on and on, BUT I won’t.
They were always professional – giving caring attention – and giving more than can be expected.
The cancer treatment cycles in the Oncology units I have used are full of staff showing TRUE KINDNESS. That is amazing if you can imagine that this is in very busy and demanding clinics and day care wards. I appreciate all of this support with my thanks to them all. I really must add personal thank you.
My special thanks to my research nurse Anna Pejnovic who has been my real link and kept me incredibly well informed. Thanks Anna!!
Well the times are strange and therefore strange lockdown things are happening.
I have been:
shredding years of old documents,
removing a wonky shower curtain and putting up a shower panel (why did I not do this before?);
old paint tins have had their lids levered open and covering marks on the wall painted over.
and so on.
Then there is this one new venture to complete in my 12 week lockdown
One of the Big Things on My ‘To Do’ List is Now Underway.
I have an online digital store where I sell hundreds of self-hypnosis audio and video downloads. Now when these were uploaded we were working at such a rate that they didn’t get the time for the love and care needed to really promote the recordings well.
For each self-hypnosis product – Adam Eason wrote some background information that you can see on the digital sessions that can be downloaded. The information was put in place in a simple format and quite honestly didn’t look great. My aim is to edit and format all of the products in the store.
The task is actually large and has long been on my list to do BUT as I have just said the TASK IS LARGE.
My Mental Chat
Yesterday was the day when I had a mental chat to myself and I started the renovation.
Where to start? I asked my brain
‘The bundles’. said my chatback brain – (such as the Anxiety and Fear Bundle below).
The thing that struck me as I edited, sorted out the typos and formatted the look was just how informative Adam’s explanations are about the hypnosis processes he has recorded .
So informative that my chatback brain said ‘Keith get this information out on your blog’
That makes so much sense as I am really working at getting more people to appreciate and learn more about self-hypnosis. I am offering here the thoughts of a leading Hypnotherapist Adam Eason, who is author of the book ‘The Science Of Self-Hypnosis.
So please make sure that you get a coupon code for purchasing this Anxiety and Fear Bundle.
ABOUT THIS ANXIETY AND FEAR BUNDLE:
The Hypnosis audios that you will be able to download straight after purchase are:
Fear Into Power
It is very well documented these days… Focusing on the breath and breathing is very important if you become anxious.
Breathing slowly and deeply activates the vagus nerve, which is the major quieting nerve of the body. This nerve helps to calm you down automatically, so if you become anxious, deep breathing can help.
In addition and as an alternative, hypnosis is a very positive way to help you conquer anxiety.
You knew I was going to say that, didn’t you?
Here, I want to share with you a very simple and incredibly powerful hypnosis session for overcoming anxiety.
If you ever get anxious, then now is the time to abandon that anxiety.
Firstly, anxiety resulting from trauma and secondly; signal anxiety, which is in effect when someone is trying to protect himself from anxiety resulting from trauma.
No matter what the theory, anxiety relates to a future time and is usually about a future situation.
It also comes from scattered attention and lack of focus.
It is the unknown what causes apprehension and anxiousness.
Living in the moment can help stop anxiety.
We deceive ourselves into thinking we can control, manipulate, or modify the future. In actuality, there are so many variables that we really can’t see all the possibilities that can occur.
In fact, worrying or being anxious causes more anxiety and may cause missing a moment that could be truly valuable.
There is a paradox to anxiety: the more you anticipate what’s going to happen, the more anxious you become.
To eliminate anxiety, becoming quiet and allowing things to happen works better than being anxious about what might happen.
Learn to give your full attention to everything you do at the moment.
By letting go of the anxiety, you conquer it.
Living in the moment does help. Since anxiety is based on the fear of a future outcome, you can learn to cope with this fear by using positive thought.
Remember: you are what you think!
Negative emotions bring negative results.
Positive emotions bring positive results, so learn to laugh at the outcome and think positive!
Yes indeed, laugh more!
Here I offer you a process and technique that is often overlooked by many therapists yet is one of the most empirically researched and proven ways of affecting progressive change within people.
A few years ago, I had a client who was experiencing anxiety for much of each day. He came to one session with me and was shaking, I mean shaking with dread, anxiety and was in one heck of a state.
I asked him to run me through the cause of his anxiety and he explained in great detail.
His explanation was very vivid, he was almost inside of the experience while he talked about it. He was filled with tears and was sobbing in a way that made it difficult to understand what he was saying at first.
So I asked him to explain it all again.
He looked at me oddly and then proceeded to run through the entire thing again, though with no tears this time.
I told him that I was still unsure of all the details in my mind and so could he please explain it once more for me.
He looked at me as if I was being heartless and unsympathetic.
When I asked him to repeat it all a fourth time, he nearly left the room.
At the end of that explanation, he seemed bored of talking about it and was totally unaffected by explaining it all, whereas he was earlier sobbing while explaining.
I pointed this out and he realized what had gone on.
It is this process that I want to explain in more detail today and show you how to use it for some amazing effect in your life.
If you have experienced anxiety in the past, it is most likely a learned response, an old habit.
Just like any other habit, physical tension and emotional anxiety can be learned over time and become associated with certain circumstances, events or situations in your life, and it is those events that stimulate that anxiety.
Learning and Unlearning
It is a core and fundamental belief inherent within modern personal development and certainly within my consulting rooms that anything that can be learnedcan also be unlearned.
That is, all habits can be broken.
I am certainly not saying that it is easy to break an established habit… Unless of course, you have the right kind of help and processes at your disposal.
This process is fabulous for dissipating those unwanted feelings
Our Cat Spooky
When my wife first took in our cat Spooky because he had been abandoned by his previous owners and left without food or shelter for a long time, he mistrusted humans. He actually feared people, which we suspect was due to his poor treatment.
You see, even animals can learn to be anxious when they do not necessarily need to be.
Our own experience as well as much documented and researched evidence shows that animals can also be trained to overcome their anxieties. Spooky now loves the affections and attention of humans and loves being around people in general…
So much so that when I am working from home, he jumps all over me and my laptop to get my attention!
New Habit To Replace Old
One way to break an old habit is by replacing it with a new habit…
Anxiety and relaxation are two mutually exclusive states; they cannot dominate the same body at the same time, the stronger one tends to progressively cancel the weaker one out.
By training yourself to relax very deeply, and by facing your fears gradually and systematically, you can use the relaxation response to cancel out anxiety, in steps and stages, and replace it with feelings of calm.
All it takes is a little patience and focus.
In the example I used earlier, it happened quite quickly and immediately, however, much continuance and consistency were required over the following weeks to maintain that, and stop any sliding back into old ways.
So here I want to share with you a process known as hypnotic desensitisation which has been used successfully for over fifty years in clinical practice to help people overcome anxiety.
It is used in hypnotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and many others besides.
You’ll begin by easily and simply rehearsing some basic relaxation skills and then facing your fears in the safety of whatever comfortable room or place you choose at the same time.
You just use your imagination to picture the things that you want to overcome and dissipate.
By running through such a process, you then find that the same feelings of relaxation remain with you outside in the real world when you have finished the process.
This is a marvellous process I am delighted to share with you.
Wherever you are sat this very moment reading this, if I were to run into that place, clapping my hands loudly and shouting “Fire! Fire!” you may well panic and rush to save your own life.
And no doubt be irritated that I was testing my notion and subsequently smiling cheekily.
This is an expected kind of panic — unlike the type of panic that this hypnosis session is aimed at quelling…
In my therapy rooms at the time of writing this, I have had more than the usual numbers of people panicking…
I am certain it is not actually to do with the messages we are getting from the government announcing “Don’t Panic” with regards to the seemingly devastating financial situation here in the UK at the moment — that the media seems determined to terrify everyone about.
So what is it? Is it that people are more self-aware? Does our enhanced sense of self and self-consciousness make us more capable of scaring ourselves?
I have no idea, to be honest.
It has raised some fascinating thoughts and encounters recently in my therapy sessions though…
Many hypnotherapists are reluctant to interact formally with their clients while they (the client) is in hypnosis.
With this hypnosis session, I offer you a really simple technique that can be done by anyone to let go of panic…
The idea of the strategy within this hypnosis session is to identify and then to obtain information from within your unconscious mind, about each part of the panic symptom complex.
What do I mean by that?
By that, I am referring to the set of symptoms that people experience when they panic.
So this hypnosis session is going to describe for you a way in which you can have a tool immediately available to you for relieving an anxiety attack of any kind.
‘Immediately available’ sounds good, doesn’t it?
Bear in mind, you do not have to have an ongoing panic issue for this to be something you use — it can be something you keep in your mind in case it is ever required.
I know you are going to love this session.
How to go into your mind and start letting go of any fears of any kind!
I went to an engagement party recently. A close friend of mine is now engaged and planning on marrying next year and had a celebratory party. It was great fun and I got to catch up with lots of old friends.
Of course, no party is complete without balloons. Some of the children were playing with balloons and I was helping them have some fun with them, not to mention tying the knots at the end of balloons that had been blown up too much. I showed a couple of kids how to rub the balloons on their heads and make it stick to the wall or ceiling with the static. It kept them amused for ages, though our hosts may have become less amused with their new wall decorations.
Balloons are such fun, aren’t they?
Well, I associate them with having fun.
I am going to come back to balloons later…
I have mentioned the idea lots of times before and quoted excerpts from my favourite self-help books, such as ‘The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind’ by Joseph Murphy and ‘As A Man Thinketh’ by James Allen.
They mention that rather wonderful idea of your mind being like a rich, fertile garden.
Of course, the garden needs tending — you need to plant good healthy seeds, and if you do not take care of the garden, weeds can grow.
The thoughts you allow into your mind — especially the ones that you think of the most and focus on continually — are the fruits that are going to grow and manifest in your life… it is as simple as that.
This notion is familiar to regular readers of my ezine and I am not going to repeat it much more here.
Instead, I want us to go into the garden of our minds and do some major cultivation. This is like primo-dynamite weeding!
With this fantastic hypnosis session, I show you how to go into your mind and start letting go of any fears of any kind.
You just have a particular direction in mind as to how you are going to benefit from this hypnosis session…
By that, I mean that you should think of a specific area of your life that you may have some fears or apprehensions about.
What with the garden of your mind and lots of fun with balloons, this session is a remarkable journey!
When you have an old notion in your mind, as guided throughout the session, you then proceed to let go of what you no longer need… A bit like popping balloons, or at least, like letting the air out of them!
It really is as simple as that with this hypnosis session — enjoy the freedom you get with this session.
I know you are going to find it as liberating as everyone else does.
FEAR INTO POWER
F.E.A.R. What a word.
Many people allow themselves to be debilitated by fear…
And they allow the fear to hold them back in many areas of life without ever even realising it…
They are scared of certain outcomes, scared of failure, scared of humiliation…
And their brain makes it go wild and fantastical and increases the fear…
With this session, I want to show you how to turn fear into power and strength.
Within the fields of modern personal development, a phenomenon known as anchors is talked about a great deal…
We have anchored responses to all sorts of things, like when we see the new trainers we bought at Christmas, we start feeling guilty for not running in them since the first week of January…
Or when we smell the coolness of the air (it has been snowing here in the UK and the freezing air has a real particular smell to it) it reminds of us when we went skiing…
Or when we see an old friend, we go all warm inside and smile or even laugh as we connect them to lots of good times in our lives…
These are all anchored responses that occur in our lives.
Many of us have even more negative anchors too…
Like guilt associated with spending time caring for oneself… Or fear associated with approaching someone with a view to dating, or starting a relationship…
And that fear is unattractive and can be sensed and is communicated to the world and makes it even harder for us to be perceived as attractive by the people we want to.
So with this session, I want us to start turning old fears into empowerment.
You can use this for any circumstance that in the past used to make you feel fearful…
You are going to love the freedom you feel following this!
Why You Need A “Start Here” Page If You’re Making Money With Blogging
Give your reader what they need when they need it – fast and easy.
As you spend time building a blog, creating attractive content, inspiring others and providing helpful information, the truth is that the internet moves too fast to stop and have a second look. Unfortunately, that also means that users move on somewhere else with a similar speed.
What if there was a way to make them stop and look a little longer?
That could provide the necessary exposure for users to get to know what your online presence is about and what you can do for them.
As much as you may provide insightful information in a well-crafted blog, you may just be missing a great chance to make money blogging by ignoring the clues. It would not only keep your users there but improve their experience to have them returning.
My Start Page on This Blog
I have in fact three blogs that go into some depth about the purpose of this blog. So I have summarised with links to the three parts.
I am really keen form relationship with visitors and find people who are interested in mind therapies and mindset development and who want to make money online.
These blog posts are an invitation to check me out and see if our vibes are right.
About Page vs Start Here Page
You surely have your “ABOUT” page. You’ve rewritten it over and over again to perfection – keep it there.
It lets others know who you are, what your blog is about and what moves you. There’s nothing wrong with that and you are doing well in keeping that information available for people that want to know more about YOU and some general insight on your blog.
Your “START HERE” page is for people that want to know about your blog, more precisely, for those that want to know where to head to grab exactly what they want.
It has to be the starting point to the voyage that you want them to take – ideally one that goes through plenty of content you created, ending up in plenty of revenue for you.
Think of it as a map for visitors to easily navigate your content. As much quality as it surely has, this is your chance to let people find what they want in an easy way.
Your start page should include easy-to-follow information that will make your visitors know exactly what they can obtain from it.
Simple information that should include:
Who you are. It will inform the visitor of your credentials in covering the areas that brought them there. Be concise, you want people to go through it straight to your content.
What you offer. If you deliver a service, be detailed about it. If you write about flowers, tell people what to expect.
Where they can easily find the required content. Give them a map, structure it easily by subjects and go through what’s most popular. Direct links to content or categories help, a search bar goes a long way.
How to connect. Let people know how to reach you at any time in case of need.
Have the information ready. Anticipate what people are visiting you for and what they want to find.
Your “Start Here” page may just be the factor that decides how to start a blog to make money and if you’ve made it this far without one, you can only imagine the lengths it will take you once you’ve decided to include it.

Make Money Blogging: The Importance of Resource and Tools Pages
There are many ways to make money blogging.
You can monetize with AdSense, sell ad space directly, sell an eBook, etc.
However, resource and tools pages are commonly overlooked as avenues of making money with a blog. Once you start a blog and gain followers or subscribers, besides getting useful information, they’ll want to know the resources and tools you use.
Readers appreciate hearing honest opinions and experience with tools. And it goes a long way to creating more trust with readers AND more money.
If you have an active blog, a significant number of your followers or subscribers want to know how to start and run a blog like yours.
What better way than have a resources page?
Without a resource and tools page, you leave your followers on their own to find tools for their businesses.
How do you set up a resource and tools page that makes you money?
With the importance of a resource page clear in your mind, it’s time to ask yourself how you can make the best resource and tools page.
To do this, you’ll need to ask yourself some questions.
1) What does my ideal visitor need right now?
Using resources and tools pages is a great way to teach readers how to start a blog to make money.
You need to understand your target audience first though.
If your blog is about web design, your ideal visitors are people interested in web design. They could be fellow web designers, individuals looking for web design services, etc. Profiling your ideal visitors is the first step.
That’s called an “avatar”.
2) What is the problem my ideal visitor needs solved?
Visitors of a web design blog (for example) need information about the niche, tools for web design, web design services, etc. There are many tools and resources that you can provide such visitors to help solve their problems.
This can range from simple graphics tools to templates you use in your own site.
Modify the tools for your own niche focusing on the primary tools everyone needs.
3) What resource or tool did you discover that changed everything for you?
If you want to offer unique game-changing tools in your resource pages, ask yourself what tool changed everything for you.
Continuing with our example of web designers, it could be special software that enables you to design unique websites. You should include such software on your resources page and include an affiliate link to earn you commission every time a follower clicks and buys the software from your blog.
4) What moved you forward?
Every blog has a turning point.
If your blog grew because of creating great content consistently because you used an article writing service, you should have such a service on your resource page.
Given that content is king when blogging, your subscribers want to know how you create your content.
In your niche, you probably have a tool that save you days of work, or made you an incredible amount of money.
Be sure to highlight the benefits of that tool specifically.
5) What questions do you get from members on social media?
If you still find it hard to create a resource page at this point, think of the questions you get on social media and use the answers as a basis for creating a page.
Social media is a huge resource to figure out exactly what your community needs in the way of time and money saving tools.
6) What comments and questions do you get on your blog?
Your blog comments section can also give your ideas on what resources and tools to offer your blog readers. Watch for specific or related questions in the comment section of your blog.
Such questions will direct you to specific resources or tools that your readers need.
And be sure to encourage readers to tell you what their favorite tools are because you may find something better and possibly something that will pay you even more as an affiliate.
Trust and Integrity is The Most Important Thing
Answering the above questions will give you an idea of what your blog subscribers or readers find valuable.
Use affiliate links wherever possible.
But this is key: Do not promote or recommend anything you haven’t used or tried before for the sake of your reputation.
You risk losing your following if you betray your follower’s trust and promote dubious products or services.
It’s difficult to make money blogging when you don’t offer real value consistently over time.
That is why I can say with total honesty that I totally recomment MyNAMS Profit Planners. It’s a complete, but concise low-cost training program that delivers step-by-step implementation plans for a new topic like “Making Money with Blogging” each month.
Making Money With Blogging While Growing Your List
If your visitors see an interesting article on your blog when they visit, how do you make sure they come back again.
The sad truth is that they may never return to your blog again unless you grab the opportunity to get them on your email list. And if you want to make money blogging, getting them to opt-in is a necessary step.
List building gives you a better chance of converting them into a customer when you send out emails later. The bigger the list you have, the more you can grow your business.
Don’t ignore this crucial when asking the question “how to start a blog to make money.”
Placing an opt-in box in your sidebar is one option, but there are many more which produce better results.
Sidebar email capture, can and will, be ignored by many visitors to your site, however. Introducing a pop-up email capture is going to increase the number of people who join your list. This is because they simply can’t miss that you have an email list, and they have to act to either remove the pop-up or join.
What About Pop-Ups?
While pop-ups can be annoying, the data confirms that it doesn’t make a difference to visitors overall behavior. Since they are so common on blogs these days people expect them, but there are some things you can do to make them more effective and different types to choose from.
Let’s take a look at some of them.
You can have a pop-up trigger as soon as the visitor lands on your page. This may not be the most effective for your site since the visitor could see this as a hurdle to viewing the content they wanted to learn about from you.
When the site visitor is moving their cursor towards the back button, an exit pop-up will trigger them for their email address. This can be a very good time to ask since they will have already read through your blog post and are going to be more likely to convert.
If someone has scrolled down the page, it is likely because they have read through your content. This is a great time to ask for their email. If they have read your post to the end or a certain percentage down the page, they will have received value from it and are going to be more likely to want to hear more from you.
Triggering a pop-up after the visitor has been on your site for a certain amount of time can be very effective. This could be after only a few seconds or a minute or longer, depending on the statistics from your site. Some experimentation with the timing could potentially produce better results.
An email pop-up can be triggered when a visitor clicks on some text or an image on your page. They have the potential to be very effective as the visitor has had to take action to make the pop-up appear. You could offer additional information to the reader if they provide their email, for example.
Whichever of these pop-up types you choose for your blog, they can be used alongside a sidebar opt-in.
Not all blogs are the same and what may work for one might not work for your audience.
Trying out some different pop-up options for your site could produce unexpected dividends, so it is worth taking the time to try out the different methods. If you want to get serious and make money blogging, you need to put the work into list building to really explode your revenue.
Making Money With Blogging By Understanding Metrics
Blogging is a great way to work from home, but to claim that making money with blogging is easy would be misleading.
The learning curve can be steep, but making simple tweaks can increase the effectiveness of your blog. But how will you know what tweaks to make?
The answer is follow the metrics. In this article, we’ll look at some of the most important metrics in Google Analytics when monetizing a blog.
The section of Google Analytics labeled “pageviews” is just that: the raw, unquantified data showing the volume of traffic coming to your site or a specific page on your site.
While this information is not so useful on its own – it needs to be given context, which is exactly what the rest of the metrics in this article provide – it can give you an idea of what types of posts on your blog are most popular, giving you future direction on what to publish.
Keywords Used to Find Your Blog
If you’ve read about SEO (search engine optimization) before, you are probably aware of the importance of keywords. Knowing what keywords led a user to your page will help you to further target those keywords by optimizing your pages, thereby increasing traffic but also the right kind of traffic: i.e., people who are interested in what you have to offer.
Pages User to Enter Your Site First
Seeing which page a reader enters your blog through is vital as it will let you know which page to optimize as a landing page.
If you’re trying to sell something, the landing page is, of course, one of the most important parts of the sales funnel. Beyond that, though, if you see that many people are entering through a certain page, you may want to produce more content with that page’s theme or take a look at where exactly that traffic is coming from (for example, from a social media site).
How Long Users Stay on the Site
Someone coming to your site and leaving within a few seconds is a sign that something’s wrong. This problem is known as having a high bounce rate. You want to be sure people are actually reading your content. If you want someone to complete an action, they’ll probably need to be on your site for more than a few seconds.
Additionally, the amount of time a user spends on a page is a positive ranking signal for Google, meaning if you provide high-value content that makes the person want to stay on the page more people will find your site through search because it will be ranked higher.
On a related note, Google Analytics also has a section detailing average pages per session. This will tell you how many pages a user visited during their stay.
What Actions Your Visitors Took
If you get a huge volume of traffic, but people aren’t converting, is that really so great? The traffic needs to work for you, especially if you’re paying for it.
There’s no benefit if someone just comes to your page and leaves after 5 seconds without performing an action.
Setting Up Goals With Google Analytics
Using Google Analytics, you can set up Goals to see what percentage of visitors are taking the desired action. That desired action may be signing up for a newsletter or making a purchase.
Looking at metrics is so important because they add context to the blind data of how many people visited your site. Luckily, there are many tools available – such as Google Analytics and a whole slew of plugins – that make it easy to track these metrics, so there’s really no excuse not to.
You will thank yourself for putting extra work into your blog when you’re getting the shares, views, and conversions you want!

I Know Some Of You Will Have Reservations – But I Wonder Why? I have watched hundreds of hypnotherapists train – and I know that your one-to-one approach is the best thing possible.

However sharing your skills and advice with self-hypnosis audio sessions is practical and possible. I say to you – please make your knowledge and skills available to a massive audience.

Affiliate Selling Has Appealed To Me For Many Years – Let Me Explain Why, And, How My NEW Hypnosis Streaming Can Give You Ongoing Income.
This morning I looked up one of the first websites that I set up back in 1996 when I started website development business.
I had just returned from working out in the Oman in the Middle East where I had been training nurses in a new University Hospital. I had put my first few websites while working there. I returned to the UK in 1996 to set up a business in website development.
The website that I put up was dorsetweb.co.uk and it is still there (oh I have to admit that 23 years later it looks different now.)
Dorsetweb, is still there and is small part of my friend Tony Rayboulds web development business.
I remember buying that domain and here is the registration information for that website.
Hi Tony – You need to update this page – it is 2020 now
Back To The Present – In Fact A Story With A Subtle Affiliate Approach To Show You.
Back in 1997 I got an e-mail from Amazon looking for my help. I so wish that I had kept that message as it may have been written by
YEP – this is true!
They must have been happy that I was there to give them a shove start!
It took Amazon 14 years for Amazon to get to making a profit. But they worked hard at it and were very inventive and creative in the things they did.
Affiliate marketing – first with books was rewarding recommendations. AND why not. AND so they approached website developers with books for the market they were serving.
The e-mail from Jeff Bezos’s team was explaining an affiliate arrangement which I had never heard of. They wondered if we would like to recommend some books about Dorset on our DorsetWeb website.
My reaction was – well let’s give it a go. I liked the idea and it made sense.
So I made up this page which wasn’t easy to do in those days. The books all had long IDs and I had to download any images I wanted. There were no software shortcuts.
Anyway there it was, our range of Dorset books sitting inside DorsetWeb.
All done BUT then frankly forgotten.
However a few weeks later to my amazement I received a cheque for about £60 for my affiliate referral commissions.
You can probably guess, over the years I have set up many affiliate situations and earned from them all.
Back To The Present – In Fact A Story With A Subtle Affiliate Approach To Show You.
This happened only last week – but I will give you a quick background framing.
Back in 1998 my mate Tony Raybould and I had totally different views about the direction the DorsetWeb business should go, and we went separate ways with our internet businesses. Tony was interested in setting up local businesses with their branded websites and marketing. He has been very successful and he manages the websites of hundreds of businesses at https://radikls.com/
[There Tony – that was a nice quick advert for you 🙂 ]
I was more interested in a close relationship with entrepreneurs who were setting up e-commerce and websites that were much more functional and central to make their business work.
An example is working with Adam Eason a hypnotherapists who was setting up a training college with online training content videos and audios. It of course made his training available internationally and so on. So the relationship is partnership arrangement.
Last week I got an e-mail from Tony and this an extract from that message.
“As a separate work matter where do you store videos that people subscribe/buy before they can view?
We have a ******* ********** who wants to make some videos and charge for viewing. He will make 1 video free as a sample, then the other 11 you pay for which will be approx. 30 minutes long each. Charging maybe 59p per video or £5 for all 11. What would you recommend?”
Now Tony knows that any recommendation will be based upon me having sold videos online for many years. He knows he will get my experienced advice.
Here is a bit of my response:
“As for the videos what you need is secure storage and a delivery platform that is secure. The storage is very cheap. You need an Amazon Web Services (AWS) account. You are only paying small amounts for the storage space and a cost per download. That is not an issue at all.
What you will need though is a secure delivery and payment system. The system I use encrypts all of the links to the videos in AWS and sets up the product delivery. It also links to as many payment service options that you need. I have PayPal and Stripe linked up on all of my products.
This networking system costs $399 annually or lifetime access $499. So the lifetime access to a very sophisticated and safe system is affordable.
Here is the best solution I have found and have been using this product for three years.
I can thoroughly recommend the service as I have used it for about four years now and I have never had a problem with the system.”
So What Is Going On…
This blog is all about affiliates and I want you to appreciate what is going on here.
I have introduced into this blog post a link which is an affiliate link. You also know from what I have said that this is an important piece of software that I have used. Furthermore you know I am recommending it to my friend.
If you are selling digital products online I guess you will want to check out my link. I haven’t told you what the product is BUT if you click on that link I will be happy because you will have your answer and my affiliate link will have been registered if you do purchase it.
On And On Getting Cheques
The two stories above are just examples of the sort of promotion of digital products high have recommended over the years. I remember that excitement of getting that first Amazon cheque and I was tempted to put it in a frame and hang in my office.
Nearly every service and software that I have purchased and used and LIKED I have got an affiliate link so that I could promote it where appropriate. I have NEVER recommended a product that I valued and used regularly. It is EASY to promote something that you have researched and assessed.
I am deliberately moving further into field this year.
AND YOU CAN COME WITH ME!!
Anyone that joins my Self Hypnosis Streaming can join my Private Self-Hypnosis For Streaming Facebook Group where we can work together to get you earning an online affiliate income.

The key to it all is building your mailing list and getting social media traffic.

Affiliate Training From Transparent Winners
Over the years I have set up affiliate programmes for hypnosis products – they worked but the income was limited because the price of products was low – so the 50% commission didn’t look that great.
This time I have set things up with the knowledge that I have learned from the Internet Marketing Training.
The Real Strength Of This Affiliate Programme is That It Is Evergreen.
Many affiliate promotions are for new products that tend to have a short shelf-life.
With an evergreen product the programme is ongoing and your promotions and advertising can be left in place once successfully set up. This all means that you will be able to have more affiliate products being sold elsewhere. Yes you really can make it an ongoing business.
My Affiliate Programme is Ideal For Newbie – OR Experienced Affiliates
I have set things up as a membership which is great because it gives affiliate RECURRING income.
The membership price low because I want it to be easy to market. In fact affiliates only have to get their potential customers to sign up for 7 free days. Now that is easier than most ways of promoting a new service.
The commissions start at 50% but I have new options for members to get larger commissions than that – they have to be earned. That is fair – isn’t it.
There is an upsell that isn’t made available until the member has joined the Private Facebook Se;f-Hypnosis Streaming Group
There is a second level of income available. Your SHS customers will have the same options that you have – they can become an affiliate etc.
“Never look down on anybody unless you’re helping him up.”
“The purpose of human life is to serve, and to show compassion and the will to help others.” –
How Can I Say This Without Sounding Schmoozy? Not Sure – So I Just Have To Say It. I Think You Guys Are Amazing and The Question Above is Right – I Don’t Know How You Do It?
I know a lot of Hypnotherpists.
I am not a hypnotherapist myself but I have videoed hundreds of hours of Hypnotherapy Training in Adam Eason’s, College Of Hypnosis.
One thing was obvious from the start, it was hard to find a student who wasn’t a great human being with an empathetic and caring disposition.
I was able to see the complexity of the training, especially in the advanced courses.
I could ALSO see just how hard it is to get to know your clients, and maintain an empathetic and professional relationship. It is hard for you !
Hypnotherapist Students have so much to learn because:
The demands from Clients are enormous. Their mental issues can be very complex. Communication can be awkward while the therapist and client are sussing each other out. There are social skills and coping techniques to learn overcome any barriers, There are so many exploratory conversations using things like Socrates Questioning (where did that memory come from)
The reason I am saying all of this to trained therapists is that I am wanting you to understand that I would never claim that any ‘one to one’ intervention is not better than therapy offered by qualified practitioners.
I totally get that.
So the ideal thing for anyone with a phobia, addiction, behavioural issues and so on is to find a hypnotherapist to give them the necessary and personalised hypnosis sessions.
However – (I guess that you knew I was going to make a different point) I want to make you think about this…
To throw the spanner in the works – from a clients point of view – that takes time, research for right therapist, money, traveling, evaluation all for one problem.
When you think about all of this it is not surprising that many well qualified hypnotherapists actually have problems marketing in the right place to get enough one to one clients.
Bear all of this in mind when you see my section below about Advantage Of the Internet and Self-Hypnosis.
Your Clients – Special To You
‘What About Your Acquisition Of Clients.
I believe (please challenge me if I am wrong) the majority of your clients will have come through referrals from previous clients.
You will know the answer to this question – How many appointments are you completing every week?
I have already pointed out above that there are obstacles, time, money and so on.
AND yet we know – it is not the place to do it just now – but the figures of mental health need is enormous.
People are becoming much more open about there mental issues. How many of those millions of people with needs will show at your door?
You want to help people like this and in a fraction of a percent you are meeting some need.
Now I stand outside your personal desires to provide the ideal ‘one to one’ solution BUT what about the fantastic (ok let us call it semi help) opportunity to help thousands of people with your knowledge and approach to mental therapies.
I believe that this is where your opportunity lies…
Your Clients – The Lessons You Learn and Leverage
,,My career was nursing so I hope you will understand that I understand the confidentiality of patients and all of their privacy. Please understand that as you read the next bit.
Please – Just Use and Leverage…
The personal relationship that you have with your clients doesn’t stop you learning from the experience and using in all future patient situations.
In fact I know you will be able to use all of that experiential knowledge to construct amazing insightful generic scripts.
If you have battled with a difficult case client wanting help with say weight control and other inter-related mental issues – you will have heard the narrative from the client, and witnessed, first hand, the emotions and descriptions given by your clients about how hard it was living with the obesity.
The reality is that you would have written a specific script for your client and used different inductions, education or whatever to specifically hit the right mental response.
Your aim was to equip the client with the correct knowledge – you will have been working things so that the client will be able to own the answers and how to proceed alone.
the core of the interactioncan be used by you for all future interactions.
it will enable you to write excellent topic specific content for self-hypnosis session scripts.
In fact – I would love you to write my sales pages for specific topics
I bet you could come and totally re-write my sales pages. You have heard the descriptions of the client problems and the emotional language and descriptions used.
Without any confidentiality issues, you can write hypnosis scripts that target the problems experienced by millions of people with identical problems to your client.
I can recall so easily lessons I learned when nursing, that made me change my approach and improve my skills going forward.
You of course are the same – AND it means that you can put together audio sessions that will help topic specific problems.
AND what an amazing thing it is when experienced therapists can share, and talk, to so many other people with similar problems.
That is ONE of the reasons I am anxious to get more hypnotherapists on board.
What are the Advantages of Online Purchases of Self Hypnosis?
1. Easy To Find Solutions
The great advantage of the Internet is that someone looking for a solution to a troublesome behavioral issue can easily locate through search engines such as Google –
Furthermore the solution is available immediately even if it is the middle of the night.
I fear that a lot of the solutions purchased are created by hypnotherapists that the purchaser is not interested in. He wants the solution on offer and that is that. Sorry that probably hurts you if you are a therapist – but reading all about you is not going to affect a purchase of a £2.99 audio download.
Not worth saying much about this – BUT to many people having a solution that is a private purchase is
I have talked to many of the people who have bought self-hypnosis download MP3 audios from our Hypnosis For Download website over the last five years. The majority of the clients that I have spoken to tell me that they are using hypnosis for the first time. That is just the people I have spoken to – not a researched finding.
However I have looked into repeat purchases and 65% of new clients buy several more products over the next year.
3. Price – Cheap and Cheaper – That is the Reality
Over the last two or three years there has been a fall in the number of new clients purchasing our self-hypnosis audios for download.
The trend was so noticeable that I put some of our products out as apps on Android, iTunes, Amazon. What a nightmare as the set up was troublesome – oh I won’t go on with it. After 6 months of messing around and trying meet the demands of the network platforms I packed up that approach.
Cheap and Cheaper – Holiday Discounts
Every now and then – over a holiday for example – I would reduce the price of our products by 50% to 70%. Every time I did that the response was dramatic and visitors to the website were purchasing many products in one go.
The positive point for me though was that the products bought were self-help (such as creativity, motivation, positivity, wealth mindset for example)
The temptation of course was to lower the prices permanently. The problem is that if your competitors are selling their products at a higher price, then they would appear to have less worthy products.
4. Timing – The Help Is Available Exactly When Clients Need It
When clients meet Hypnotherapists for an appointment the interaction is at a specific time – and the mood of the client is what it is! The activities and pressures of the day can affect any hypnosis or talking therapy interaction.
Obviously the opposite is the case with therapy recordings as the user will have taken a positive action by deciding to use the audio.
Hypnosis Sessions and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy CAN be Very Specific
I have been talking about the Self-Hypnosis Sessions for online downloads as generic because they are not written directly for a client.
When you, as a hypnotherapist, deal directly with the client, you can get down to the gritty details and write scripts specifically designed to meet their CURRENT needs.
That is brilliant and it may put you off writing scripts that can be used by thousands of people.
However there is a place I believe for almost ‘keyword rich’ self-hypnosis scripts which have a very specific topic related focus.
There are so many times that I hear people with mental issues on the morning Breakfast programme that I really want to help. I know I have hypnosis scripts that would really work for them.
Topic, Story, and Well Described Hypnosis Session
This is an example of how specific the audio sessions can be.
If you take a look at this set of hypnosis sessions available on my Hypnosis for download website you will see that Adam has produced a series of hypnosis sessions with a narrative introduction all about insomnia. Each product has a related story.

In my New ‘Hypnosis For Streaming’ Membership we Have a Great Starting Team.
All of the Hypnotherapists who I am currently working with have special interests. AND I am now on the recruit for others to join – (more about that below).
In particular I like adding material and speccial areas of interest.
What We Have Currently
Apart from all of the general self-hypnosis by Adam Eason, he has a particular interest in running and has run several marathons – great charity work.
Dr Janet Hall specialises in Sex issues and Tom Smith in Addictions.
I am also adding this month several sessions recorded by Andrew Fogg who’s area of special interest is Golf.
In My Radar – Going Forward This Year
I am currently in conversation with a Hypnotherapist in America who specialises in Golf.
I am really keen to find hypnotherapists to contribute topic related content.
Also I can identify hundreds of individual hypnosis sessions I would love to add to my membership vault. For instance sessions aimed at the teenage market, such as, overcoming exam nerves, or relaxing going into exams – and so on.
Members Can Seek Out Hypnotherapists They Like and Relate To
How important this is. You may well not know anything about me just now but if you are to want to join my venture you will certainly want to find out more about me. So natural.
Are you male, female, what is your accent, where are you based, what are your interests.
If you become a contributor to my Self-Hypnosis Streaming website I tell you now that i will not worry at all if you are the third or fourth contributor of a weight control programme. Why not? Some people will prefer one hypnotherapist over another because of things as basic as the dialect, voice, sex or style of presentation.
Why Self-Hypnosis Streaming –
Make everything available therefore offering so much content at a very low price. Great value low price. Getting the resources out to as many people as possible.

Education – Get more people to have a better understanding of hypnosis and related therapies.
The very first bit within the membership area is education including videos and self-hypnosis sessions based upon Adam Eason’s book ‘The Science Of Self-Hypnosis’ – The Evidence Based Way To Hypnotise Yourself. You can even learn to write your own scripts.
Hypnosis Sessions are there of course – but I am after countless numbers more.
Addictions, Phobias, Simulated programmes (Hypnotic Gastric Band) Sex Issues etc
There are Self-Improvement programmes, Self-Esteem, Creativity, Motivation, Wealth Mindset as examples.
This is a project that can easily be promoted by members as affiliates. Only members will be able to promote and they will get 50% commission recurring for any new members they introduce.
What Improvements Do I Want Wish Self-Hypnosis Streaming?
Lots of Hypnotherapists with their audios and videos. I would like to double the content this year.
I am very keen to add specialist interests.
I really don’t mind if there are similar titled audios – people will choose the hypnotherapist they prefer, (male, female, old, young, accent and so on.)
Self Branding – Each Hypnotherapist will be able to add as much about themselves as they like and include videos of themselves.
There is a private Facebook Group for members which will enable them to communicate with hypnotherapists and arrange online one-to-one sessions on places like Zoom or Skype.
Stories about the audios and why they were created.
Improve the lay out – I would prefer the products were in categories and a bit like Netflix with rows of special interest.
Add a search facility.
How This Can Help Your Business
Your Business Income
Here is the most important point I can make.
The need out there for therapeutic mental support is enormous, and getting worse with the pressure of today’s lifestyles.
I know that it is not the complete answer, but I think that there is so much that can interest new users and help people as they try out the self-hypnosis sessions and the Self Development programmes.
It is a bit like reading a book about the problems they are facing.
You as a Hypnotherapist can help people locally BUT there is a really important limitation on income because it is your TIME.
WHY stop there?
Second and Potentially Limited Online Income
One of the first things I learned when I was first looking at marketing on the internet was about limitless income.
Why shouldn’t you share your knowledge, and help people, so that they can improve their lot by listening in to your programmes, and using the your self-hypnosis sessions.
BUT what about your income.
Remember that this is a high value, low priced vault of self-help. How many people can you encourage to get this online support?
I am a inside mastermind member of a group that trains online marketers. Please get in touch with me and we can work out how we can work together on this Self-Hypnosis Streaming project

I feel a little strange at the moment writing about obesity and being overweight, because I now have my weight under control.
Is that control easy?
The answer is YES and the reason is that my behaviours and mindset are learned as a result of using self-hypnosis. My new weight mindset has given me new behaviours that are totally learned and permanent.
BUT let me first of all Offer Some Caution.
Self-Hypnosis WILL work AS LONG AS YOU WANT THE CHANGE.
My MOMENT Of Wanting To Change
Until I was forty I was basically TOO slim. After that, the middle age ballooning gradually crept upon me. I ignored most of the visible clues like having to use different holes on my belt, and the large numbers on the scales.
My own self image was that I was ok. In fact I thought that I looked right for many in his middle years.
Then came the awakening.
Babs (my better half) put some pictures (snaps!!) together in a frame and it was on our dining room wall.
I was shocked – yes really shocked when I saw this picture below. It was the moment that was decisive. My self image fantasy was exposed! I realised my justification about middle age rounding was rather self deluding!
What To Do?
Diets, surgery, hypnotherapy or what – I wanted a permanent change.
Diets: I looked into diets – but what restrictions, and there is so much evidence of yo yo results. A ‘no go’ area for permanent change.
Surgery: Surgery did not appeal – besides which I wasn’t massively obese.
Hypnosis: However Virtual Surgery with Hypnosis did appeal. You can go over the top with self-hypnosis and let the focused imagination get you to your desired results – permanently if done well.
Operating Table Bariatric Surgery or Virtual Hypnotic Gastric Band For Obesity
In the last couple of weeks obesity has been in the headlines. In fact the outgoing chief medical officer for England Prof Dame Sally Davies says children are “drowning in a flood of unhealthy food and drink options”. She has opened a public debate about adverts and banning eating food on local buses and trains.
Obesity is a growing problem throughout the developed world and is strongly correlated with ill health with a serious risk of ill health and then early death.
There was also another headline that caught my eye.
Obesity surgery can harm mental health.
A study has found that mental health problems including self harming, can increase after weight loss surgery. Researchers in Australia discovered that self harm was five times more common after gastric surgery operation than before.
Gastric Band Surgery – The Good News
In fact we are not talking about small numbers here in this study reported in the JAMA Psychiatric Journal. The Gastric Band surgery (Bariatric Surgery for Obesity) was carried out more than 6500 times in England in 2017 and 2018, that is an increase of almost 250% in a decade.
Weight loss is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach with a gastric band or through removal of a portion of the stomach, or by re-routing the small intestine to a small stomach pouch
The surgery, can lead to dramatic weight loss. And even better there were also improvements in diabetes, and high blood pressure.
Gastric Band Surgery – The Not So Good Bits!
But there seems to be a downside with this physical surgery as There is concern that the surgery can exacerbate existing or underlying mental health problems.
Explanations range from
disappointment, not losing as much weight as expected through to a surgery altering levels of hormones, and gut bacteria that might affect the brain.
Obese patients are a vulnerable population when it comes to mental health, with as many as 40% having a pre-existing issues.
While bariatric surgery is the most reliable form of sustained weight loss. However there is still a high number of patients who who fail to lose the expected weight and or develop complications. Such a failure to meet original weight loss expectations could lead to increased anxiety and depression.
Tam Fry chairman of the National obesity forum said it was vital that patients receive psychiatric backup both before and after their operation.
However Surgery is Surgery and there can be all sorts of Side Effects – Physical as well as Mental.
The operation is now very safe.
Nonetheless, every single surgical operation carries some risks, in particular the risk of blood clots which can be increased with seriously overweight patients.
The other major disadvantage of physical surgery is cost which can be several thousand pounds to have the operation.
Both of these disadvantages are eliminated with a hypnotic gastric band.
Virtual Hypnotic Gastric Band – An Alternative Approach
Hypnotic suggestion works best with those with the right mindset and if you want the change!
HYPNOTIC GASTRIC BAND is a non-surgical ‘mind simulation surgery’
Gastric Hypnotherapy is a non-invasive form of weight loss hypnotherapy using suggestion and cognitive behavioural therapy to achieve the desired results.
There is no need to visit a hospital, doctor or nurse, ideal if you have a fear of any of these.
No form of hypnotherapy will work if you are not 100% committed.
Hypnotic Gastric band Is a scientific procedure. Also it can be used by people (a bit like me) who are overweight but not as obese as many that need surgical intervention. In other words without the risk you can go for this without the fear of surgical side effects
You listen to an audible programme, you can be as sceptical as you like.
You follow and focus on the audible instructions
And suddenly, your eating habits start to change.
You eat less.
You leave food on your plate, and you don’t feel like you’re missing out.
If you try to eat more, your body won’t let you
It makes you feel full. If you try to over ride it.
The weight drops off,
You feel an overwhelming sense of liberation. And best of all it almost seems too good to be true.
I know this because I have used our Hypnotic Gastric Band set of self-hypnosis audios which is in our Hypnosis For Download store and our Self-Hypnosis Membership website.
Your hypnotic gastric band is a psychological procedure that convinces your mind that you’ve had a gastric band fitted, so your body behaves exactly as if you’ve had the gastric band
Feeling happy with smaller portions and your stomach saying that’s enough
Losing weight and enjoying your food.
A hypnotic operation also resets and natural signalling system for your body so your brain knows when you’ve had enough to eat.
You will simply find smaller portions completely satisfying
You will naturally seek out the healthy nourishment your body
You will discover that often you do not want to finish all that is on your plate.
On the contrary, your body will give you a very clear undeniable signal that you’ve had plenty to eat long before the plate is cleared.
When you reach your natural healthy body weight, the same hypnotic process will adjust your gastric band so that you continue to get all the nourishment your body requires.
I have now got a mindset where all of the behaviours that I took on board when following the Hypnotic Band process are now in place. The behaviours are working six years after going through the Hypnotic Gastric Band programme.
The snacking, second portions, eating too fast and all of the other stuff are gone.
BUT the best thing is that this Christmas – I will eat my food slowly and fully enjoy every mouthful – but in a controlled way.
Oh and Enjoy Your NEW body and the comments from friends and family.
Take your weight off of your mind – for good. Yes PERMANENTLY
So here it goes – I am breaking a basic rule – the experienced internet marketers advise against, people like me, getting potential clients to take more than one action when they read your post or e-mail.
BUT – I have two actions that I would like you to make today.
So what am I doing?
Well – I have an incredible 10th Anniversary Membership (NAMS) that I invite you to join if you have ever wanted to develop an online income.

Let us look at what is on offer here – the value of this special offer at NAMS.
I have been selling audio products on the internet for many years but during the last three years we had sold less products than we had in the past. There were very many reasons and I needed to get some help with my marketing and whizz voom – I found it.
After some research I joined NAMS about two years ago, which is run by David Perdew and his daughter Jen.
What a find!! I have recently re-developed my whole business using marketing skills learned at NAMS.
I am a full insider member and have access to all of the resources of a huge library of training material.
BUT even better than that there is a weekly webinar where members can and ask questions (in fact are encouraged to). It is in these meetings that you can see the integrity of David and Jen and learn from their experiences and failures. This is a really helpful community etc etc.

My new approach to offering our self-hypnosis audios is via a streaming service, which offers incredible value, sound and video files, in a very efficient and effective delivery system.
This self-hypnosis membership website is fully of in demand self-help and educational audios and videos. The members are the very people that will have experienced and appreciated the value of membership and will be the best people to be affiliates and promote.

I have run affiliate programmes in the past and the sad point was that a handful of our affiliates made good money – but about 90% of our affiliates earned nothing at all.

If you are already an experienced affiliate, and understand the rules of the game – then just get involved – get in touch with me and we are off. In fact – let’s talk today.
However What About You If You Are a Newbie To Affiliate Marketing?
The reality is you NEED training – and I want to introduce you to the BEST.
I have been working on the internet since 1994 and I have trained with so many people
For the last two years I have discovered an amazing training resource led by David Perdew. I will write about David and his Internet Marketing Membership website later this week.
I am feeling well. YES – I AM FEELING WELL – VERY WELL AND I have cancer!
It has been strange for me this year as I learned in February that I have a tumour with some smaller deposits in my abdomen and in my lungs.
Well because here we are in November and I still have not got any symptoms and YES I am still feeling well – even though my treatment has now started.
No symptoms – but a secret, silent, hidden cancer.
I will tell you my story below – but first of all let me explain why I am writing this blog.
[The figures I quote in this blog are from UK studies]
50% of Briton’s will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes. So this is an issue which will affect every family.
But even with this alarming statistic I read this in the paper this week: levels for breast cancer screening are at their lowest for a decade according to NHS digital data. NHS figures showed uptake of screening checks for cervical cancer fell for the fourth year to hit 71.4% in 2017-18.
What a crying shame as early cancer diagnosis makes all the difference to treatment outcome.
In fact – UK cancer survival rates have fallen to the bottom half of world league tables for seven cancers and only come in the top 10 for two.
This is really disturbing when you look at what is possible with early detection and screening.
A pilot program in Manchester recently scanned more than 2500 people in three deprived areas of the city where lung cancer is more prevalent and discovered 46 cases of cancer. Of these 80% were early stage one, the scheme funded by the Manchester Clinical Commissioning Groups and Macmillan Cancer Support has quadrupled the early diagnosis rates for lung cancer in Manchester
The difficulty is that the majority of cancers present with vague symptoms and are much more likely to be something else.
headaches are rarely brain tumors,
abdominal pains, rarely bowel cancer,
lower back pain and tightness, rarely, kidney cancer
GPs (doctors) are gatekeepers and have to decide which merit urgent investigation. Money and politics get in the way! Why the GP practices are not working well to achieve good fast referrals will be for another blog.
This week, the former National Director of cancer Professor Sir Mike Richardson published a report on how NHS treatment could be transformed and speeded up. It is driven by the new understanding that delays of a few months really matter. It requires a radical rethink, including investment in many more machines and staff so that diagnostic tests can be done far more rapidly alerting people to the importance of having their symptoms seen at the earliest point, more screening and specialist cancer centers and pushing GPs to refer anyone whose chance of cancer is higher than 3%.
Let Me Tell You My Story Which Has a Quirky Twist and a Touch of Romance.
I had cancer of the kidney five years ago, which I discovered through finding blood in my urine. So I had a clear symptom and followed up right away. I had that kidney removed and have been for yearly follow up since.
This year was the fifth anniversary, and in February I went along to see my consultant surgeon, Mr Wedderburn at Bournemouth hospital.
All was looking good – bloods were fine, my renal function from the remaining kidney was good. I felt well. So Mr Wedderburn said that he would get a scan done and if that was ok I could be discharged from his care.
Three days after I had the scan a letter arrived with an appointment (I nearly wrote invitation :-)) to see the consultant. It had been two years since my previous scan and a tumour had not been apparent at all then. However now two years later there was a growth near to where the kidney was originally – but also there were some new small deposits including in my lungs.
The thing to stress is that from that day in February right through to this day in November – I have had no indication or symptoms that anything is wrong. Everything normal, pilates classes, badminton and daily walks all carried on as usual. A strange situation really – knowing you have cancer but totally well. A fortunate scan giving earlier warning and earlier treatment.
Isn’t Life Strange – Location – Randomisation – ROMANCE thrown in.
Bournemouth – 5 miles from home
My starting point was locally. I was referred to Dr Delgart an Oncologist at Bournemouth.
In a nutshell – the cancer cells that I have are papillary. Now that apparently is not good as clear cancer cells respond more easily to the standard treatment currently available. Trust me to have the wrong sort!
However the doctors world being very research based meant that Dr Geldart had colleagues working elsewhere that were doing clinical research into the papillary cells that I have.
Southampton – 30 miles from home
So from Bournemouth – I was referred to Dr Wheater in Southampton where they were hoping to start the new clinical trial in September.
The study has a great name SUNNIFORECAST which is a European randomised phase 2 study of Sunitinub/Ipilumumab immunitherapy. Basically attacking the tumours with two antibodies at the same time.
I had another scan arranged for September and with a bit of luck I would meet all the right criteria (checking other things medically such as my heart background – heart attack and stroke in the past!) That scan showed that the tumour was growing slowly.
However a disappointment. In September it became clear that the clinical trial was not going to start till next year.
BUT here was the big surprise for me!
Dr Wheater also had a colleague who was going to start the Clinical Study in London at the Royal Free Hospital and that had the go ahead to start in November.
Royal Free Hospital – Hampstead, London – 120 miles from home
The Royal Free is a 120 mile journey from my home in Poole – but the thing that made it attractive was because I had worked there for four years as a Charge Nurse on a Surgical Ward in the 1970s. AND I had also met my wife Barbara there as she was a student nurse when I first got to know her. She came to work on my ward as a staff nurse when she finished her training and – well – I was her boss then. (Guess she is the boss now). Love her.
Anyway it is an area of London we both love. I was due to start my treatment at the Royal Free on Monday and so we made a weekend of it. We spent last weekend around Hampstead and the picture is me and Babs with our daughter Zoe and a friend of hers.
My Clinical Trial For a New Combination Of Immunotherapy Infusions.
Doctor Boleti is my new Oncologist and she has a terrific team at the Royal Free. My real champion has been the renal cancer research nurse Anna Pejovik who has arranged tight schedules for investigations and frankly everything!!
I had one concern because there is a slight lottery about all of this.
It is a randomised trial and there is a chance that you will be selected for the old treatment rather than the new therapy. I prayed that the computer would pull my name out and it did. A week ago Anna rang me to say that I would be getting the new combination immunotherapy and it would start on Monday.
After the treatment on Monday all has been well. No side effects to date! AND Yes I am Feeling Well!
I Am Telling My Story Here For a Couple of Reasons.
1. Cancer Treatment is changing fast and Immunotherapy is the name of the game.
My journey over just a few months show how much is changing and new treatments are emerging all of the time. Dr Boleti told me that dealing with cancer is like control of any chronic condition, and that most people will die from some other cause.
In last weekends Times Supplement there was an article about James Allison who was one of the first research scientists looking into Immunotherapy.
The long article was entitled (which I can’t give you the URL link because it is a paid subscription)
‘Immunotherapy could revolutionise care for cancer patients. So is this the end of chemotherapy as we know it?’
Quote from Times Article:
Cut, burn, poison, aka surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, were the options for cancer sufferers. But one man had other ideas. James Allison pursued his belief in immunotherapy for years when the medical world was doubtful. No longer. Last month he won the Nobel prize for medicine (with help from his brilliant colleagues and brainy wife – Dr Sharma). Now his research is changing everything we know about treating cancer.
What do I owe this man and his team?
And yes, it is quite amazing that treatments like the chemotherapy treatments (which I was involved with at times in my nursing days) that we hear about from the past, which were pretty onerous and very toxic drugs – have now been replaced by much better treatments.
2. Cancer Screening
I was lucky because my original cancer was obvious because of the bleeding. The cancer this time was not obvious but post surgery after care highlighted the problem.
So I got my scan 9 months ago and the secret, silent, hidden cancer was revealed. If my cancer had got to the stage where I was showing symptoms … need I say more.
The answer is to really improve our screening rates. Get those take up figures rising.
Depending on your age, sex, occupation – there are various screening checks available. PLEASE seek them out and give yourself a better chance of picking up any issues early.
Cancer Screening picks up the problems before symptoms occur and at an early stage where the treatment and control will have a better chance to work. The solutions and treatments are improving daily.
