Doctor Hamilton’s book emphasises the connection between what happens in the mind and body and the effect this can have on physical, mental and emotional health. Inside us all is is an inherent capacity for healing, self development and for positive change. Modern life with its stresses and strains can often inhibit these innate abilities with a consequent loss of self esteem and self confidence and lead to the development of negative and limiting thoughts and attitudes and beliefs.
Thomas Hepburn is the sole practitioner at Hepburn Hypnotherapy and from his Glasgow of base, Thomas practises Hypnotherapy and Reiki, two complementary therapies which can harness the connection between body and mind and allow us to access our own inherent abilities for healing and self development and lead to more satisfying and fulfilling lives.
Prior to becoming a psychotherapist / hypnotherapist, Thomas worked with social work services and community education for over 30 years in Glasgow as a community development worker. During this time he also became attuned to allow him to practice Reiki. Throughout his working life as a community worker Thomas admits to suffering from mild depression, lacking in self esteem,being a smoker and a serial yo yo dieter. However on discovering Reiki and Hypnotherapy , he was able to manage or overcome these issues.
Hypnotherapy and Reiki are two powerful complementary therapies which can harness the connection between body and mind (so intertwined) and allow us to access our own inherent abilities for healing and self development and lead to more satisfying and fulfilling lives.
Thomas’s role as a community worker was to assist deprived communities to identify their issues and concerns and to help and encourage them to tackle these with their own resources. On taking voluntary redundancy in 2006, it seemed appropriate that Thomas should train as Hypnotherapist/ psychotherapist as there is a similar ethos in both fields (ie, encouraging people to tackle their issues trough their own resources).
During his Hypnotherapy/ Psychotherapy training it soon became apparent that obesity is not only related to poor diet and lack of exercise but can be rooted in emotional issues. Constant worry, that often ill defined , indertiminate something in the back of the mind can lead to to stress, anxiety and insomnia and give rise to panic attacks and phobias and can often (but not always) have its roots in in lack of self esteem and confidence and lead to obesity, smoking addiction and other negative habits.
Thomas’s experience of tackling his own issues with regard to anxiety, self esteem smoking and obesity and avoidance of must do tasks has given him the insight and motivation to assist others with similar issues. Understanding how life can sometimes seem like an empty void when worry and stress become the norm leading to sleepless nights smoking and obesity, ensures that Thomas obtains satisfaction from employing his skills, knowledge and experience helping others to overcome such problems
