If you are looking for quotes on hypnotherapy, you’ve come to the right place. Here are some of my favourite Milton Erickson quotes.
Milton Erickson was a very famous hypnotherapist, who many people have studied and learned from. Feel free to share the quotes you like the most on social media.
You can pretend anything and master it ~ Milton Erickson
Enlightenment is always preceded by confusion ~ Milton Erickson
A goal without a date is just a dream ~ Milton Erickson
Life isn’t something you can give an answer to today. You should enjoy the process of waiting, the process of becoming what you are. There is nothing more delightful than planting flower seeds and not knowing what kind of flowers are going to come up ~ Milton Erickson
I have no intention of dying. In fact, it will be the last thing I do! ~ Milton Erickson
People do not come into therapy to change their past but their future ~ Milton Erickson
The most important thing in changing human behavior is the person’s motivation ~ Milton Erickson
Most people walk through the world in a trance of disempowerment. Our work is to transform that into a work of empowerment ~ Milton Erickson
Trance is a natural everyday experience ~ Milton Erickson
The unconscious mind is decidedly simple, unaffected, straightforward and honest. It hasn’t got all of this facade, this veneer of what we call adult culture. It’s rather simple, rather childish It is direct and free ~ Milton Erickson

Last Friday I hosted a Lifestyle and Wellness Event in Carmenta Life in Berkhamsted. I work as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist in Berkhamsted and I have the use of a lovely room in Carmenta Life on Tuesdays, so I felt it was appropriate that I hold it there.

The stalls on the evening were as follows:

Her Mini carrot cakes, lemon bliss balls, easy cheesy flapjack and beetroot, raspberry and chia seed smoothie went down really well with everyone. Her body composition analyser was also a big hit with everyone too, with a lot of friendly banter as to who came out as the youngest age by the statistics it provided.
And finally, of course myself, Heather Hall Hypnotherapy who was answering questions on how Cognitive Hypnotherapy works, and how effective it is at making the changes you want to make in your life.

Research has shown that if you stop smoking for 28 days you are 5 x more likely to stop forever.
Public Health England encourages smokers to stop smoking from the 1st October every year with this 28 day challenge. Paddy McGuinness, Al Murray and other TV personalities such as Phil Tufnell, Craig Revel Horwood and Natasha Hamilton back this worthwhile campaign, swapping fags for gags.
To help you break the habit and the addiction, they are providing a range of free supportive tools which include an app for your phone, tips for quitting and a new stop smoking pack. To join the biggest stop smoking campaign in the UK you can sign up here.
So if you want to give up smoking, why not use Stoptober as an incentive to start? You’ll gain better health, more money and social benefits quicker than you may imagine.
Cognitive Hypnotherapy has been shown to be a very effective way to help you stop smoking. The reason I became involved in hypnotherapy was because one of my friends gave up after after one session. I was really impressed. Alongside my hypnotherapy training, I also trained with The Simmons Method which is a science based approach to stop smoking, which covers all aspects of breaking this habit and addiction.
If you are interested in how hypnotherapy can help you to stop smoking, please give me a call with any questions you may have on 07761 586529 with no obligation to book an appointment.
