Sliding Scale of Depression.
Your mood changes from jolly, happy, outgoing, confident and so on. You feel the weight of the world getting heavier and heavier on your shoulders and your posture begins to be bent over as you walk looking at the ground as if you are walking through treacle.
Mind & Body.
Your mind is easily affected by the way you hold yourself. Even a child knows this. Say to a 6-year-old, walk like an old person, they will walk slow and bent over (the typical archetype old persons posture). As an adult or (grown up) you do the same by walking and copying someone who has depression – there is no real difference. The only thing is that you are just adding more feelings to this as a method character actor would do.
How To Change.
Remember that you are in control and so you have to create a posture that looks, acts and shows others what they are feeling. This is done by walking holding your head up high, wearing a smile because you are never fully dressed until you wear one. Breathe deeper also start to pay attention to your surroundings. A dog does this with ease, sniffing at every lampost. No, I don’t suggest you do that, but just be present by paying attention.
7 Tips and Tricks To Use.
Everything Will Pass.
Remember that everything comes to pass and it is up to you how you want to feel each day and not the responsibility of anyone else. This is your life and you have to live it and sometimes unpleasant feelings are a part of that. You have the choice to stay there and take medication or you can start to rise above your negative feelings.

Overeaten and feeling bloated?,fat and uncomfortable? The New Year will soon be here and you are going to make your New Year Resolutions, being healthy, going on a diet, going to the gym, eating less, eating healthily and cutting down your drinking… Well, that’s not going to really happen, is it? How many years have you said the same thing over and over and ended up with negative results as your willpower diminishes to a point of saying what the hell, I’m going to treat myself and that’s it!
New Years Resolution.
A new attitude that will work for you such as dieting, will work if you go about it in the right way. Let’s face it, you know exactly the right foods to eat to be healthy and you know the bad foods and the junk foods. You know about fat and sugars as well as taking more water and less alcohol. You know all of this, don’t you?
# 7 Tips and Tricks.
Food and Calories.
Cutting down on calories is fine, but did you know that calorie controlled food from shops can provide you with fewer calories. But there is no way that you can make food have fewer calories. The only way is to eat less. You cannot make a doughnut have fewer calories. If you only want half the calories, then cut the doughnut in half and only eat half.
180 Degree Turn Around.
Everyone will do a 180 degree turn around, If you are lazy, then in the New Year you will go to the gym and exercise, if you are fat, you will stop eating, we all do the 180 degree. This is why we fail to sticking to our New Year Resolutions because of the 180 degree complete turnaround.
Your Personal Diet.
A diet has to include all aspects of your life and not just food. Your diet needs to be your health, positive thinking, what you listen to, what you watch on TV. mindful of negative thinking, staying calm, contributing to society, how you help others, your bad language, use kind words and thoughts. How you contribute to your own wellbeing and walking in nature. A diet is not just food and drink, it is your way of life. We also offer Reki Treatment, click here to read more about our Reiki Therapy.
All of this is my opinion and I cannot be held responsible for the way you chose to interpret my words. I am not a doctor or nutritionist. You are in control of how you want to feel, be and act in this world. If you really want to lose weight you will find the right way for you, if you want to grow muscle, you will do it. In other words “take this with a pinch of salt”. Always seek medical advice when doing a change of diet or exercise.

So I’m In a Trance?
We are all running some type of a trance no matter what it is because this is what we do. Driving your car is you being in a trance. Doing anything mundane is you in a trance, in an awaken state none the less. Although non-mundane things are also achieved, this can be seen with a musician that can play the guitar exquisitely and never looks where his fingers are placed. Why? because his unconscious can do the work for him i.e. in a trance.
A Trance Is a Trance.
Nexus Hypnotherapy helps these people out of a negative trance. Negative trance can be one that becomes detrimental to you and/or others around you. Going to work can be a good thing but if your trance makes you become a workaholic, then you and your family suffer. A drinker that starts to consume too much is in a negative trance so is a smoker or someone overeating. This can also be parts of you that have a Fear, Low Self Esteem, Lack of Confidence and so on. At Nexus Hypnotherapy we help you become the person you want to be, i.e. to help you be Confident! Once Philp helps you to realise your negative trance, you will come out of this and go into a trance that is helpful and beneficial to you, so you can shine with your Confidence.
How Many Sessions To Change?
At Nexus Hypnotherapy, Philip has his own particular style of working, more often than not change happens in just one visit. Sometimes people can find this hard to accept and so they will need one or two more and that can be it, job done so to speak. Obviously, if there is deep trauma then more visits will be required until that person feels well enough emotionally to be able to cope on their own. But even in suicidal thoughts and sexual abuse, these have been dealt with in one session. But we are all different and so you are best not to put unrealistic results on your change, but rather go with how you feel at the end and work from there.
We Are In Walsall?
Nexus Hypnotherapy is based in Walsall, we offer you a free phone consultation to find out the best way in which to help you. We can find out your own expectations also what have you done previously to help you with your current problem. It is amazing how people can change from the fearful to the fearless. Your change can be so simple, you have always thought away from a totally different way of thinking. Once the problem has gone, then everything else seems to fit into place.
Contacting Nexus Hypnotherapy In Walsall.
We have a few ways in which you can contact Philip Ayres: Phone 07939905388 or email us email@example.com Use our contact page on the Nexus Hypnotherapy website or go onto our Book an Appointment page or find us on FaceBook under Anxiety Hypnosis. This is your first step to change.

Help with Depression, Suicide, Self Harm, Panic Attacks, Anxiety. Confidence for Bullied Children to name a few. We even help with relationships whether Gay, Straight, Siblings, Parent-Child.
The Sliding Scale of Anxiety.
Anxiety affects us all in varying degrees from mild forms to severe attacks and it is relentless as it can come on at any time no matter where you are or what you are doing. This can lead to Panic Attacks and IBS (Irritable bowel syndrome) Most often this can just start on waking up and lying in bed, the feeling of dread can be overwhelming to say the least.
But What Is My Anxiety.
A few things can cause anxiety. but anxiety is and always will be just the symptom and not the cause. Most people deal with the symptom and not the cause and so they never really get better. Start to notice the cause of anxiety.
What To Do?
It’s hard to switch off and no one said you should, but rather use the power your fertile imagination gives you to help you get well and recognise that you can start to deal with the cause and not the symptom. It can feel, to begin with, that you start to change because you have been hardwired from birth to think and feel anxious. Most people’s anxiety is 50% of somebody else’s and so in a split second, you can halve your anxiety. Now to get rid of another 25% of your anxiety is too realise that you are the experiencer of the anxiety and NOT the anxiety itself. So now you are down to 25%.
Master Your Thoughts.
Mastering the mind is one of the hardest things you can do, but you can treat it the same way as you would with keeping yourself clean. Do things that help clean your mind and your thoughts, just as you wash, you get dirty again and then you have to bathe again, all your life this happens. Your mind and thoughts are no different. Run a mental antivirus programme in your head by not letting your negative thoughts dictate how you should feel, in other words, don’t let people steal your happiness. Don’t download their problems.
What To Do Now.
Change by doing subtle things, walking, playing music, singing, feel lighter, stop gossiping, swearing, moaning, and judging others.

Nexus Hypnotherapy Helping You.
Nexus hypnotherapy can help you get rid of any old unwanted emotional problems. This can be achieved by introducing many different techniques as well as using hypnosis. Many of my previous client’s are better in one session. This is down to how I use all the combinations I have learned, particularly my own wisdom and the magic of change just happens. You too can experience this for yourself if you are willing to experience my style of healing…
Change Of Direction.
Nexus Hypnotherapy is forever evolving, this means that I have started to introduce a small element of Shamanic Healing into the sessions. What does this mean at this time? This is the instruction of different sounds to invoke your healing from using drumming sounds, rattles and so on. The sound is used to heal you at a deep level and with the words I use in your hypnotic trance, it will help heal you in a profound way. All of this is none invasive, but it helps to get down to a deeper level of you! This is where the changes take place.
Some But Not All.
Change can happen at a rapid pace. The length of time you wish to see a therapist is down to you, some but not all therapists can hold you back by saying that they need to see you time after time. At Nexus Hypnotherapy we possibly only see you once and a followup if you feel you need it. Why Ony Once? This is because of how I am using and integrating my learnings to help you in a simple and effective way. Once you get this in the session as my previous clients have done, then your problem disappears.
Nexus Hypnotherapy With A Difference.
If you are looking for a traditional hypnotherapist, then there are plenty out there and this style works. But for me, I have always been different, I don’t follow the crowd so to speak. If this type of thinking is resonating with you, by how I am wanting to put this across to you in this short blog, then you know where I am coming from.
Life has many dimensions, just as we feel different emotions, smell many different fragrances and how there are many flavours of food and drink. So my method of bringing different dimensions or flavours to your session is needed as we are all different. So if you are after normal then please don’t come here because we are different.
You And YOU…
You are in a constant state of flux, by this I mean that there are many ‘yous’. (U’s) The hugely you is different to the full and satisfied you. The You waking up is different from The You going to bed at night. When people see me they are very different to the person that came into the one that leaves. This is because there are many YOUS or dimension of who you are. Without going too deep into this, I hope you understand what I mean about the YOUS and how I help you bring out a different YOU.
All This Said!
All this said I can only help you if you are willing to change and to accept the change with an open heart and mind, also to release and let go of your negative past. If all of this is aligning to your spirit and you know there is a whole new you wanting to emerge then let me help you find you. Just as a butterfly can emerge from the chrysalis, and not know how to fly, but trusts in the process and as she lets go, she is free to float in the beautiful dance of life.
Contacting Philip at Nexus Hypnotherapy couldn’t be easier in Walsall, Lichfield, Cannock and the surrounding areas. You can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07939905388 or contact me here via website form.
What Is An Addiction?
We pretty much know when addiction is mentioned that we are talking about hard drugs and alcohol, on a lesser note about pornography or smoking. So is an addiction just a way of repetition, as we are brought up on repetition. In other words to constantly do the same things over and over again. And so would going to work every day for 50 years be classed as an addiction. If addiction is defined as we have a behaviour that we can not control and we have to act the addiction out because we find support in that, then surely going to work to a place that we don’t want to be in, then that must be an addiction. Going to school every day and many children being forced to be separated from parents is a trauma, but we have to bend to the will and be conditioned which could be the spark that leads us into addictive personality and then feels that we have no control…
Is the addition an escape to all the suppression that was built into us at that young age, but because of the conditioning of our young fertile minds had no other way, it must believe that this is the only way to act. This unconscious action then makes us feel that we have no control and so the addict will say that is an addict and have little control over any recovery.
When we talk of remission it is through the problem, illness has gone or lying dormant within us, but could fire up at any moment and so we must be on our guard. A recovering alcoholic must not be around temptation because that might start to drink, which is depicted in many comedy sketches on TV, and we all know whats going to happen…
Diet Can Be A Major Player?
Your diet can be a major player in what we became addicted towards because of the lack of certain minerals and vitamins will make the mind-less coherent and will lead to substances that can have a negative impact on our lives.
9 Top Tips.
# 1 Notice what triggers your addictive behaviour
At Nexus Hypnotherapy we understand that the process of change is not always as straightforward as one would like. That is why we are here to help you through the process, whether Alcohol, Drugs, Gambling, Gaming or help to Quit Smoking.
Getting angry is an emotional feeling that we all experience at some point in our lives, let’s face it, even a baby will show angry in the early days of life. So I guess that anger is hard-wired into us from the beginning. That said, what is its purpose? Is it a form of self-healing? After getting angry, you release all the pent-up tension, this can make you feel cleansed in a weird way. Then you feel sorry or guilty if you have hurt someone and then if the anger is unresolved you have an argument in your head and that leads to frustration.
What Is The Cause Of Your Anger?
You may think that others have led you to the point of getting angry because it is a demonstration of how you are feeling inside, no big surprise there! But what if your anger is deep unresolved issues that you have never dealt with. As I said before a baby can get angry, it will go through different emotions, just as you would before you get really angry. This can be stress, hurt, frustration, anxiety etc and you begin to seeth, then you blow your top, so to speak.
Making Baby Quiet.
Have you noticed how quickly we are to calm down a baby, child or adult if they start to show signs of crying, upset, aggression and so on? How do we do this? By pacifying that child with a dummy, bottle, food, toys, hugs, rocking and so on? Later we use smoking, alcohol, drugs, more food or consumerism. There are practical reasons like feeding and changing a baby, but what if the separation of that child going into its own room was one of the causes…
We are separated at birth, then into our own bedroom, from our childhood toys, from home by going to school, we are forever being separated as we grow up. We are separated by people and loved ones that die. And yet we are taught not to lose anything as we must keep things safe, such as your gloves that get sewn into your coat etc… This is why we panic when we mislay things, such as car keys or mobile phones etc…
It makes sense that we should feel angry, but are we not just feeling hurt as we are not only being separated but feeling the lack of love. But when we are given love, it can be hard to accept it as it is laid on all the bad feelings that keep surfacing.
What Is The Answer?
I think the only real way is to minimise separation as separation comes when a child wants to leave home, rather than being made to leave. But all the time love can help and if a baby needs to cry and let out any hurt, let it happen. You know yourself that after a good cry you feel better, but if someone keeps stopping you from crying, then you never feel the relief.

How Fearful Are You?
People have constant fears that run in the background of their minds. Fears have to be there in order to help and not to be seen as a negative. Fears can protect or make us take avoidance actions. Fear creates longevity by stopping us doing dangerous things. This protocol seems to get either switched off or at least turned down when under the influence of alcohol. This is why people will do stupid, crazy and foolish things that result in getting themselves killed in the process. A Phobia is a more heightened state of Fear.
Running Your Fears.
People are fearful of many things, as one can be fearful of heights another is not, as this applies to everyone at some stage in their life. Some controlled fears are good, such as a rollercoaster ride as it is fun but scary at the same time which leads to excitement and exhilaration. But fears can also run deeper, as you can fear not having enough money or job security, will your kids grow up ok and get the right qualifications for that job they want, fear of being late or missing something. fear of not being good enough or doing something right. This list of fears can be multifold and this type of fearful thinking is not good.
Head And Heart.
People who have fears are those who live in their heads too much, we all know someone like this, such as an over worrying mother for example. They look mithered, if not a little unstable in this type of fearful thinking and you can act the same because you have been brought up in that sort of environment. People who have very few fears, tend to be those who live in their hearts and care little about what their minds think. They have greater control over their thoughts. Their hearts are in a state of comfort and so there is little to fear. Because fear is an illusion that the mind tricks you. Do you remember being scared of something maybe as a child and now you’re not scared. So where did the fear go? …It was a trick of thinking,
Child vs Adult.
Naivety as a child can be great because you know that you will live forever and are unbreakable. This leads to doing crazy and daring acts or stunts which make you feel alive as the powerful adrenaline rushes through your body which is the best feeling ever! But later in life as you grow up, wisdom now kicks in as you know that you will not live forever and you are breakable and not indestructible. That tree you climbed as a child is now the one that shows you danger because you could break your leg, which means you aren’t going to earn money and this is not good, but why? This is because of wisdom, the child tends to lack wisdom compared to the adult, but wisdom can steal your confidence and this can create fears. It’s a neverending cycle of related emotions that torment you.
What Can Hypnotherapy Do For Your Fears?
As you know children can be fearful, at Nexus Hypnotherapy we help younger people to conquer their fears with therapeutic techniques that help them to become fearless or help them to reduce their fears. Some very young children can be scared of going to sleep etc… Of course, adults can also run their fear, as if driving a car with the rev-counter in the red zone, this is not healthy. So we at Nexus Hypnotherapy get you to turn down this emotion as your internal rev-counter drops down and is working in the safety zone, so to speak.
Help Is Here.

Confidence, Confidence, Confidence & More Confidence…
How Confident Are You?
Confidence has to be one of those emotions that we find hard to have or at least hold onto when others try to knock our confidence. See how parents take your confidence away as they tell you how cocky you are in your puberty years, they say ‘you’re getting too big for your boots’ as well as many other sayings. Rather than saying that they should help you temper and channel your confidence. People are too eager to take other people’s confidence away from them.
Here’s Some Good News With Confidence.
You cannot take anyone’s confidence away from them, but you can surrender it. You are born with confidence which is a natural inheritable state of life. Have you noticed other’s dictate how they have no confidence, but they are very confident in telling you that they have little or no confidence?
Confidence can sit on the back burner so to speak as you use other coping methods that help you avoid situations and so you stop using your born right to be confident. Other emotions have masked your confidence so much that you believe that you don’t have any and this is not true. All therapist’s do is convince you to remove your old coping mechanisms and to build on positive past experiences and cement those seeds to use your new found confidence in your future.
7 Tips On Being Confident.
#1 Use your power pose to emit your confidence to others. Do 2 mins practice every day or more if possible.
#2 Wear clothes that have a powerful effect on you. Dress powerfully, but act relaxed. Remember the duck, on the surface of the water he is calm, but below, he paddles like mad.
#3 Start to reinforce your confidence with posture, relaxation and positive mental thinking.
#4 Take control back because you are in control and all it takes is practice. Look at life, how to master anything competently, you have to practice, as do footballers. musicians, actors to name a few. You are in control.
#5 Help bring out confidence in others, this will help you to feel more confident with how you act. It’s self-help and free.
#6 If you know someone who has the confidence you admire, this could be an actor or a family member, then notice how they act and here’s the easy bit, copy them on how they stand or notice how nothing phases them.
#7 Confidence comes from your breath and so use your breath. Singers have breath control. People lacking confidence will speak in a scared way, timid and nervous. Confident people as you will know will speak with a more commanding voice. Your confidence lies in your breath because no one has the power to take your confidence. YOU are in control.
Help Is Here.
If you feel you require that professional help to boost your confidence particularly for a special occasion. This could be a job interview, speaking to a group of people, for your own self-development or you just want to get rid of the negativity that has stopped you feeling confident, then you may just want to visit me to see how I can help you either in London or in Walsall in the Midlands. You can Contact me here. Not using your confidence can make you feel frustrated, angry and even depressed as you breed self-doubt by your inhibitions crate anxiety.
Are You Really Depressed?
Are you really depressed and if so how do you know? Depression is set on a sliding scale, from first feeling a bit down or melancholy then all the way up to suicide. Suicide is the most extreme which is definitely not healthy. But of course how bad do you have to feel to do something about your depression. Why not get yourself help when you are just feeling a bit low rather than waiting until it is so bad that you have to be on prescription drugs to help you.
Are You A Victim Of Medication Side Effects.
Drugs can only do so much, there is new evidence to suggest that they don’t work on your brain chemistry as was first thought. Could this be a placebo effect? You will also notice that some prescription drugs don’t suit everyone and you may feel you need to find one that suits you. Make sure that the medication is not causing you any undue stress, such as Anxiety. etc… It’s always better to be sure what’s going on. The same way you would check for ingredients in food.
Nature Is The Best Healer.
But what about intervention on self-help before your depression is too bad. Nature is the best healer, also medicine that is very easy to administer. If you’re in a deep depression it may take time to heal, but what about if you recognised the sad feelings and you went into nature for your healing.
Depression takes a lot of negative energy to sustain the negative feeling. No one is suggesting that you can never feel low because sad things happen to us all or all around us. It’s a normal feeling to experience – the main point is that when you are feeling low and becoming more depressed is not to stay there, see it as more of a visit. Depressed is really telling you to have a deep-rest! How often do you get a deep-rest, such as a good sleep at night…
Everything Comes To Pass.
Take stock of your mental health and thinking in a positive way, no matter how difficult things become because everything comes to pass, Even the wildest seas will become still if left alone, as muddy waters will eventually come clear.
7 Easy & Useful Tips.
#1 My tip is to notice your first signs of low feelings that you can instantly do something about it.
#2 Remember no one knows you better than you, so you are the first person that can start the process of helping yourself.
#3 Only visit your low feeling if you have to, but just don’t stay there, because this is what other people do who are on lots of medication for the never-ending cycle of their depression.
#4 Look up at the sky and find the many shapes and patterns in the clouds (of course only when safe to do so).
#5 Start to like yourself once more as most people hate themselves. You do have love inside you or you wouldn’t be able to love anything, such as puppies, kittens, food, music, reading and so on. Now start to include you in this love.
#6 Depression is a mental way of making you feel heavy, this can make you walk slow and hunched over. Stand tall, also move faster as well as feeling the ground beneath your feet when you walk.
#7 Think if your diet, medication or even people around you are causing you to feel depressed. Remember that you can always do something to help improve your life.
#8 Bonus tip. Stop acting depressed, this means any actor that plays a convincing performance, you can do the same in your life. Start acting today on how you want to be seen and the feelings will follow. It may not always be easy, but give it ago-you maybe suprised…
