Welcome to our ‘in the media’ section, where you can download articles that have appeared in the National press about the uses and benefits of Cognitive Hypnotherapy, many written by Trevor Silvester.
“You’ve spilt yoghurt down your tie” said Bex, with not as much disbelief in her voice as I’d have liked. “No I haven’t” I said, without even looking down. That kind of denial didn’t even work when I was 6, but I still seemed to cling to the hope that wishing it untrue would make […]
It was a surreal sight to see my name featuring beside Stephen Fry last week, because while I believe that we create the future we expect, I mainly mean that in terms of the state our thoughts of the future put us in, which then tends to cause us to behave in particular ways when […]
Ideamensch is an online community of ‘people who bring ideas to life’, so I was really pleased to be asked for an interview by them. Bex and I remember when Cognitive Hypnotherapy really was just an idea, on a piece of paper that we were doodling on as we watched TV. Now, 13 years on, […]
The story of Darin McLoud has been a feature of Cognitive Hypnotherapy over the last year because he’s been such a potent symbol of transformation. At forty years old many people pretty much conclude that they are who they’re going to be, and yet he demonstrates that we make a choice about who are every […]
After less than a year in the marketplace it’s brilliant news that the weightloss downloads developed by Trevor in collaboration with Thinking Slimmer have had such an impact already. It’s particularly pleasing because the philosophy is all about forgetting diets and creating a healthier relationship to food. As a true lifestyle change it means the […]
Quest has a growing network of great Cognitive Hypnotherapists, many of whom are making great inroads into increasing the public’s awareness of the benefits our approach can bring. I always get a buzz seeing people we’ve trained appearing in the media, and this article by Kirsty Hanly is a great example. Click here to get […]
Our job as agony aunt and uncle on the Jeni Barnett show BBC London 94.9fm (apart from us hating that description) has been one of the new things of 2011 that we’re enjoying the most. I pinched myself on Sunday when I turned to my left during the broadcast and looked into the studio next […]
Ten months ago I had a therapy session with a wheezy fat bloke. I’d been asked to see him by Sandra, the founder of Thinking Slimmer, who had contacted him after he’d been crucified in the press for suggesting that he should put on weight to get a gastric band operation that he had been […]
We’re very happy to have become Jeni’s resident Agony Aunt and Uncle – reducing it, rather than increasing it, we hope. The subject this time was anxiety, and Bex and Trevor share a Cognitive Hypnotherapy perspective on the issue, along with some tips on how you can take more control of your fears. The songs […]
I was invited onto the show by the lovely Jeni. As well as talking about Cognitive Hypnotherapy I also got to speak to some listeners about insomnia, low self-esteem and procrastination. Oh, and weight loss and the producer’s jealousy. It was a busy time. I’ve edited out the music to save you time. Ooh – […]
The Daily Express recruited several of their staff to listen to a Slimpod, a recording designed and recorded by Trevor to help people lose weight, and available through Thinking Slimmer. As you can read, the results surprised them. The use of hypnotic suggestion has been one of the key elements of Cognitive Hypnotherapy from the […]
Quest-trained Cognitive Hypnotherapist Lesley McCall describes in the Guardian what it feels like to help people as a therapist. Read it here.
ThinkingSlimmer is a new approach to weightloss using short recordings (known as Slimpods) to adjust our unconscious relationship to food. It only requires 10 minutes listening per night and we’ve had some brilliant successes. I used Wordweaving to create them, and I’m ‘the voice of the Slimpod’. Darin is one of our most inspiring successes – from couch potato to running the Great South Run in just a few short months.
“You’re in the Evening Standard on page 3!” After over ten years of working bloody hard to develop Cognitive Hypnotherapy into an approach that not only works, but which the public come to recognise, that has got to be a great message to get, so you can imagine how much I was looking forward to […]
Trevor has been working with the Times columnist Katie Pearson. In this article, published on Tuesday the 18th August 2010, Katie talks about how Cognitive Hypnotherapy is helping her with cancer. Isn’t it a shame that doctor’s don’t go on to investigate these positive ‘abnormalities’?
