Do you find yourself limited in some way. Perhaps there is something that stops you from reaching your full potential and going out and doing all the things you’ve really wanted to. Whether you are suffering from anxiety, depression, speaking in public or something else, we can help you get to the root of the problem.
At Bloom, our strategy for success is no secret. There is no question that hypnosis is a powerful tool for change, but when used in combination with Personal Development Coaching, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and aspects of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, we take hypnosis to a whole new level, where success is inevitable. Using this multifaceted approach to change, what we are essentially doing is breaking down ineffective behaviours, beliefs, attitudes, emotional states and perceptions, and modifying them in a way that will enhance your abilities. We do this through the use of positive suggestion, and the addition of new and powerful strategies and techniques that will give you the necessary skills and resources you need to get the changes you are looking for.
How We Do This
To determine the root cause or originating source of the problem.
To discover if there are any unconscious internal conflicts going on that need to be resolved.
To break down one’s current state of limiting behaviours.
1) Create a vision for your goal.
2) Get to the root cause of the problem though Hypnotic Regression.
3) Remove the obstacles that are standing in your way, which includes: Addressing internal conflicts, releasing trauma, transforming limiting beliefs and breaking down ineffective habits and behaviours.
4) Implement new and resourceful strategies, behaviours and ways of being through: Human Repattering, Positive Suggestion and aspects of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
Step 1: Creating A Vision Of Your Goal
“People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But the self is not something one finds, it is something one creates.” Thomas Szasz, “Personal Conduct,” The Second Sin, 1973
Very often, when we find ourselves unable to move forward, we have already determined what it causing the problem, “I have anxiety, or I don’t have the confidence and motivation I need to more forward with my goals.” In other words we know what we don’t want anymore. “I don’t want to have anxiety, or I don’t want to be lazy or unmotivated.”
Knowing what you don’t want is only one side of the equation though, and it isn’t enough to provoke substantial change. It can be like telling a child what not to do. “Don’t sit on the couch” rather then directing them where they can sit – “go and sit in your special chair please.” The first step in influencing movement towards change is to create a vision of your ideal self which includes laying out a set of resourceful and effective behaviours. This will serve as a map for your mind and your unconscious to follow, will give direction to your behaviours. This is your opportunity to reinvent yourself, the way you have always envisioned you would ideally like to be. We will help you to create your ideal vision and discover what is inspiring you to change at your deepest core level. Discovering what is truly important to you is the first step in making your journey both motivating and compelling. In addition, creating vision and a set of ideal behaviours also gives us the criteria to track and measure the progress of your change, so that we can ensure that our work together has been effective.
Step #2: Getting To The Root Cause Of The Problem Through Hypnotic Regression
What is regression, it and why is it useful?
Regression through hypnosis allows us to bypass the conscious mind and explore the unconscious mind in order to access information that may not be readily available to us. There are three main reasons why hypnotic regression is essential:
Getting To The Root Of The Problem
The process of regression is what we use in hypnosis to take you back and explore the root cause or originating source of the current limitation you are experiencing that is stopping you from reaching your goals. Discovering where the problem stems from allows us to see what the drivers of your behaviours are. This realization alone can be valuable in advancing you towards your ultimate goal. But, it’s only half the battle. The other half lies in programming your mind for success, with new and empowering behaviours and strategies that will take you to the next level.
Step#3: Removing The Obstacles That Stand In Your Way
“When the impossibility has been eliminated, whatever remains, no matter how improbable… is possible.”
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Discovering Internal Conflicts
At some point in our lives most of us have been faced with a variety of internal conflicts. We can often recognize an internal conflict by the way we express them to ourselves such as: “A part of me wants to lose weight, but a part of me also wants to treat myself to with food.” Or, “A part of me wants to get married but a part of me enjoys having freedom. Internal conflicts become problematic when we feel stuck and unable to move forward, not realizing that the source of our problem is a deeply rooted in an unconscious internal conflict. Regression allows us to discover your unconscious internal conflicts and bring resolution to the issue through conflict integration. This will leave you a with a sense of inner peace and harmony, with all parts of you working together so that you can move forward into the life you are creating for yourself.
Breaking Down Ineffective Or Limiting Behaviours
Many times the drivers behind our behaviours are unknown to us, especially when they are unconscious. It is essential to discover the internal or unconscious process we go through to enact these behaviours before we can create new and effective ones. Once again, when we bring light to our limiting behaviours, we have won fifty percent of the battle, the other fifty percent lies in the creation of new and effective behaviours. We do this through the use of positive suggestion, implementing new and resourceful behaviours and strategies, and calling upon your unrealized potential.
You will find that through this process of exploration, that you will gain deeper insights and clarity about yourself and your behaviours that you may not have been aware of. These realizations can profoundly affect change and be a great source of enlightenment. The benefits of this discovery are two fold: 1) We now know what we were doing wrong and why it was ineffective, so there is no need to repeat the behaviour in the future. 2) In order to strategically rebuild a new and useful set behaviours that are effective, we need have an awareness around what isn’t currently working.
Transforming Limiting Beliefs In Empowering Beliefs
Beliefs are one of the most fundamental and motivating forces in human behavior, they are the things that we believe to be true which are instrumental in creating our actions and experiences in life. Our identities and lives are shaped by what we believe about our self and the world around us. Many of our beliefs and values reside outside of our conscious awareness, therefore it can sometimes be difficult to change existing belief systems through using logic or rational thought.
How a Belief Is Formed
Our beliefs are shaped early on, before we even had an awareness that we were being influenced. They are shaped by the way our parents, the media, our teachers and our friends perceive of the world. Socially we are impacted before we were given a choice as to what to believe. Beliefs can also be formed as a protective mechanism, so that we can learn from our experiences in order to stay safe both physically and emotionally.
At Bloom we can find the limiting beliefs that are holding you back, and help you to transform them into positive and empowering beliefs, so you can finally move forward and do exactly what you have always known you had the potential for.

Step #4: Implementing New & Resourceful Strategies and Behaviours
Resolution Through Human Repatterning
Part of the process we use at Bloom to resolve our deeper unconscious issues is called Human Repatterning. Human Repatterning is when we bring a sense of resolution to an issue back when, and where is was created, and bring that sense of resolution forward in time to our present day age. Many people who have experienced Human Repatterning feel a profound sense of empowerment and confidence that they can now do anything they put their mind to.
Creating New Strategies & Resourceful Behaviours Through Positive Suggestion
“The possibilities of creative effort connected with the subconscious mind are stupendous and imponderable. They inspire one with awe.”
Many hypnotherapists will give generalized positive suggestions such as “you are growing more and more confident every day”. At Bloom we believe in optimizing the use of the hypnotic trance state. Once we determine the obstacle that is standing in your way, we will not only give you positive suggestions, but in addition we will create a set of personalized strategies and resourceful behaviours, in order to program your mind for ultimate success.
Tapping Into Your Unrealized Potential
Brian Tracy once said “The potential of the average person is like a huge ocean unsailed, a new continent unexplored, a world of possibilities waiting to be released and channeled toward some great good.” At Bloom we believe this to be true and we have helped many to see, and tap into their inner reservoir of potential. You are both more creative and resourceful then you know, it’s just a matter of accessing that unrealized potential.
We have all had the experience of life throwing us a curve ball or setting out to achieve something we may have believed was beyond our capability. But it is through accomplishing that task that seemed impossible at the time or making it through the difficult times we learned something very important about ourselves. And that something is that we can rise to the occasion and are far more powerful then we know in the face of life’s challenges. Through hypnosis we will help you to draw on your unrealized potential and use it to your benefit NOW rather then waiting for life to throw you that curve ball.

Further Reading On The Structure of Limiting Beliefs
Belief change work is often difficult to do with oneself because the basic structure of a belief is made up of 7 different components: 1) Judgments and evaluations about ourselves, others and the world around us. 2) The meaning we give to our experiences. 3) Complex equivalences. 4) Causes and effects. 5) Unanswered “how” questions. 6) The result of an underlying positive intention. 7) A feeling of hopelessness, helplessness and worthlessness.
1) Judgments and Evaluations: Beliefs are judgments and evaluations about ourselves, others and the world around us. Most often they are a reflection of our core values of how we identify our selves. E.g. “That person is not good (does not have good values) because they are not Christian, Muslim Jewish”. “I am not successful because I don’t have a good job”
2) The Meaning We Give To Our Experiences: We give meaning to events and information based on our existing belief systems. An example of a belief in which someone assigns meaning might be: “If you are dressed nicely (means) you are successful”, likewise “if you dress sloppily (means) you are not successful”. “If I can’t make money (that means) I am a failure in life”. “When you are quiet it means that you are mad at me”. These assumptions can cause us to behave in a way that can be detrimental to ourselves as well as others around us.
3) Complex equivalents: Complex equivalents are statements which imply equivalences between different aspects of our experience. (A=B) “If you work hard in life you will be successful in life” is an example of a complex equivalent. Complex equivalences are not specific and tend to be broad and generalized.
4) Cause and Effect: When a person believes that one action will cause a specific reaction or that something is the result or consequence of something else. A causes B. E.g. “If I express my feelings nobody will like me”. The true expression of oneself will lead to or result in dislike from others. Beliefs that are based on cause and effects are also usually made up of broad generalizations without being specific.
5) Unanswered How Questions: Limiting beliefs can also arise as the result of “unanswered how questions”. If a person has one or more questions that cannot be answered about how to change a behavior that they are have then this can then cause one to form a belief that the behavior cannot be changed. Unanswered how questions usually come in the form of a statement. “If I fully express my emotions, I won’t be loved.” The unanswered how questions that arise from this belief are, “How can I express my emotions and still maintain my relationships”.
6) Positive Intentions: Some beliefs originally came into being as a protective mechanism, so there is typically a positive intention or motivation behind their conception. The principal behind positive intention is that people make the best choices available to them, based on the situation at the time, and what they feel their options where especially as it pertains to keeping safe. For example, in a situation where a female child was physically abused she may have formed a belief that “I am not safe around all males that raise their voice. A part of this woman believes that in order for her to remain safe, she must always get away from males that raise their voice. As a consequence she becomes scared and wants to flee in any situation where a male raises his voice. She cannot distinguish difference between a male raising his voice because he is excited or angry. Her behavior has become generalized to all males that raise their voice. Once a positive intention behind a behaviour has been discovered it can be updated to a more positive and discerning belief.
7) Hopelessness, helplessness and worthlessness. According to Robert Dilts, author of the Encyclopedia for NLP, the three most common areas of limiting beliefs center around issues of hopelessness, helplessness and worthlessness. Hopelessness: The belief that the desired goal cannot be achieved regardless of your capabilities. Helplessness: A belief that it is possible to achieve the desired goal, but you are not capable of achieving it. Worthlessness: The belief that you are not worthy of or deserving of the desired goal because of something you are, or have or have not done.
