Presentation: Mind Over Matter – The Placebo And You

Our thoughts are very powerful and we are all open to suggestion.

Clinical research uses a placebo as part of the controlled experiment to check how well a new drug or clinical intervention works.

Over the years there has been more and more evidence that many of those taking the placebo also make improvements in health outcomes.

This ‘placebo’ effect can also work when participants know it’s a placebo.

Anne, who uses nlp and hypnosis to help her clients, will be drawing upon research on placebo and other evidence to explore the possibility that we can train ourselves to use our own powers of suggestion to help resolve issues.

Anne says “I don’t know if we can but if we could just imagine the possibilities”

Desserts anyone?

This session will look at comfort eating. During the session we’ll explore the physiological and psychological triggers that lead to comfort eating and how the response can be changed.

Over the years Anne has worked with many clients who comfort eat and helped them to stop and learn other ways to cope with negative emotions and situations.

She has researched the links between food and the impact that sugar, salt and fatty foods have on our brains and how we can become addicted to them.

So if you have ever turned to food when you feel down, stressed or just plain bored you might find this session helpful.

Presentation: Metaphors Of Life

“Metaphors of Life” – an interactive workshop exploring the ways in which we describe our lives, including the problems we may be having.

We hear people say “I reached a plateau”, “I’ve come up against a brick wall” but what is it like to live within those metaphors?

This workshop will help you explore some of the metaphors you use in your life and how they can be used to solve problems or improve your life.

Please bring paper and pen.

Presentation: Watch Your Words

We use words all the time: to chat, in letters or emails, but what do those words really mean?

In this interactive presentation Anne will help you think about the words you use and what they may say about you.

She will help you start to think about some of your own ‘self-talk’ and the assumptions you may make about yourself and others based on what they say.

Please note: This presentation runs from 2:15 pm to 3:30 pm
