2024: Celebrating A Fresh Start


New Year offers a unique opportunity to embrace change. The air is charged with possibility, inviting you to reflect, to leave behind the old unwanted habits of the past and reimagine yourself in a fresh new start.


Across the globe, people usher in the New Year with hope and resolutions, but nearly 80% will have let these lapse by the time February comes around according to polls conducted in the USA. For the determined, there are several ways to strengthen one’s resolve including an often overlooked yet profoundly impactful method called clinical hypnosis.


This simple tool has the power to expand your horizons and maintain the commitment to change. It is simple to use and learning it could unlock the hidden reserves of strength and resilience that reside within each of us.


Positive Energy


Hypnosis feels like a harmonizing flow of energy —a graceful dance between the conscious and subconscious minds as a gentle yet profound, recalibration of energy frequencies takes place. During clinical hypnosis, alignment or synchronicity takes place allowing the conscious mind to naturally move aside, and the unconscious mind to take centre stage. This shift in energy dynamics creates a channel enabling access to the deeper layers of our psyche and exploration of the spiritual aspects of our being.


Just experiencing this flow creates a conduit for healing, growth, and self-discovery. As part of our celebration of 2024, we have organised a delightfully discounted two-day Masterclass on Energy Psychology and invite students, graduates and new friends to collectively share these experiences as they embrace the new year.



The energetic realignment facilitates a profound sense of balance and inner harmony, akin to the feeling of being in tune with the universe. The experience where the spiritual and energetic aspects of our being merge opens the door to transformative healing allowing personal evolution to unfold in ways that are never forgotten.


Reflecting With Kindness



Times of transition offer a unique opportunity for introspection. Research shows that the habit of reflection separates extraordinary professionals from mediocre ones. It can take a little discipline to get started but reviewing one's past experiences, irrespective of whether they are joyous, or challenging is empowering. These moments of our lives, contribute to the person we are today. Embracing the lessons learned and carrying them forward is the beginning of personal acceptance and confidence, making the time spent gently contemplating the chapters of the past year a valuable investment of time.


One of the remarkable facets of clinical hypnosis is that the experience of just going in and out of the state facilitates self-compassion and self-awareness. It is easy to learn and fun to share, and the benefits stay with you through your life’s journey. 


Many people fall in love with the experience, incorporating it into their work as teachers or healers and even in the corporate sector as trainers and managers. A common sharing from our students over the years is that the hidden bonus of learning clinical hypnosis is the friendships and collegiality that take place in the classroom. As part of the New Year celebration, they will be offering self-hypnosis sessions to people curious to discover a new useful balancing tool, for coping with inner challenges, work-life pressures and helping people at home


Setting Intentional Goals


Resolutions often focus on tangible changes, but they are equally effective for prioritising personal time and the quality of personal mental health. The challenge is to create and maintain an intentional objective.


One of the easiest ways is to write down your goal in clear simple terms and imagine how you will feel after you have achieved your outcome. Reflecting on the benefits creates vivid markers that help keep you motivated and guide you towards success. People who use clinical hypnosis will make suggestions to their unconscious mind which helps to keep them on course. The dual power of conscious determination and emotional energy blend together making it much easier to achieve these goals. 



New Year resolutions do not need to be grand gestures. Small, consistent steps towards self-care or specific goals can yield profound results. Learning to celebrate these small achievements and enjoy the process helps to maintain one’s motivation. This removes the pressure allowing you to evolve at your own pace rather than becoming fixated on the end goal which often creates a burden of stress and ends in abandoned resolutions.


Cultivating Self-Compassion


Self-compassion is a fundamental component in the pursuit of personal growth. Treating oneself with the same kindness and understanding that we normally extend to a cherished friend is an important first lesson. The second involves learning to embrace our imperfections, to accept them as a part of the human experience and to utilise the reflection as an opportunity for self-discovery and growth.


Being good to oneself in this way permits moments of rest without guilt. It allows us to take a respite and permits forgiveness when we have not been perfect. Acceptance is not an excuse for letting the people we care about down, but self-forgiveness creates a powerful motivation to prioritise activities, honour boundaries, value others and keep working towards our goals. Research shows that nurturing a compassionate relationship with one's self and others creates a foundation for robust mental health.


Embracing Community and Support


When the stress of life or failure strikes it is easy to forget that human beings are social creatures. No person is an island, and it is important to cultivate a support system that uplifts and encourages your mental well-being.


The culture of post-COVID invites us to be more open in our conversations about mental health. It has become marginally easier to discuss or find safe spaces to talk about things that matter, whether with trusted friends, family members, or professional therapists. And a value that we take with us into 2024 is the recognition that seeking support is a sign of strength, not weakness.


Many people are exploring courses on personal growth and clinical hypnotherapy skills. For some, this is about a new career in the helping professions. But for a growing number, it is about an investment in the world we live in and the decision to become a beacon of support to others. Kindness has a ripple effect and engaging through compassion can inspire others to value themselves, prioritise their mental health journey and have the courage to take the first steps that bring meaningful change to their lives.


Embracing the Journey


As we step into this new year, let us embark on this journey with openness and resilience. Embrace the moments of joy, navigate the challenges with grace, and always remember that your mental health is a priority worthy of attention and care.


May this new year be a testament to your strength, a celebration of self-discovery, and a canvas painted with the vibrant hues of mental well-being. Here's to nurturing your mind, heart, and soul—a journey that deserves celebration every step of the way.
