Caroline Armstrong from Healthy You Hypnotherapy came to Mama Social and gave us a few tips on self hypnosis, as promised here is the guide…
This is technique you can use several times a day to help you to take a short break from what you are doing and refocus on your goal and how you want to feel.
Follow these simple steps…
1. Take a deep breath in, close your eyes and breathe out.
2. Count backwards slowly from 100-95
3. Say your positive statement slowly and with conviction, 3 times.
4. Count up slowly 95-100
5. Breathe in a revitalising colour, and open your eyes and breathe out
During May we have two very different meet ups ….
On May 12th Caroline Armstrong will be coming in to Mama Social. Caroline is a hypnotherapist and owner of Healthy You Hypnotherapy. She has over 10 years experience in successfully working therapeutically with children and adults and prior to setting up Healthy You Hypnotherapy worked as a Social Worker and Mental Health Practitioner. She now specialises in women’s mental and physical health.
Caroline will be talking about Hypnotherapy, how it works and how it can help improve women’s mental and physical health and wellbeing with a focus on importance of self care for women and mums.
On 26th May, for the first time, we’re taking Mama Social on the road!
As our usual venue is unavailable we’re instead hosting a meet up at Whirlow Hall Farm at The Barn Cafe. We’ve arranged a farm tour and there’ll be animal handling for the little ones if they’re feeling brave!
Both meet ups start at 10am
Jessops Superheroes will be taking place on Sunday 21st May at Graves Park. The aim of the event is not only to raise money, but also to celebrate the superheroes that care for and save the lives of Sheffield’s tiniest patients each day.
More than 7000 babies are born at Jessops Hospital every year. The hospital supports families through all stages of pregnancy, from conception to care after birth. This includes caring for critically ill and premature babies in one of the largest and most specialist, Neonatal Intensive Care Units in the country.
Babies being treated on the unit require constant 24 hour care, sometimes for weeks or even months. Each day can be a struggle and your support can help these families, during what can be one of the most stressful times of their lives.
The day will start at 10.30am where you can choose from a buggy friendly 2.5k route, or a more challenging 4k route, with a few bumps and lumps along the way. Bikes, Trikes, buggies, slings and even dads shoulders are welcome to help you around the course.
Rather than buying a ticket for the event, the charity are asking that each attendee raises £15 in sponsorship; with 100% of the money raised going to help the Jessops Hospital continue their great work.
For more information about the event you can visit the Jessops Super Heroes page on event supporters DuoCall’s website.
Who are you?
I am Caroline and I have been living in Sheffield for the last 17 years. I live with my husband and my young daughter who is an amazing little girl. I have a pretty dry sense of humour and love Alan Partridge!
Where are you from?
I am a Yorkshire girl and was brought up just outside Leeds. I moved to Sheffield in 1999 to go to university and have been here ever since!
What do we need to know about you?
I am a trained social worker and have additional therapeutic qualifications in counselling, cognitive behaviour therapy, psychodynamic work and hypnotherapy. I have provided successful therapy to a wide range of people over the last 12 years, including spending over 6 years working with the mental health charity Mind, before deciding to focus on hypnotherapy full time. Over time I have developed a specific interest in women’s health and wellbeing and have tailored my work to this. I believe working on your mindset is fundamental in creating positive changes in your health and have seen how hypnotherapy makes significant changes to people’s quality of life.
Where can we find your business/product?
You can find me on Facebook – Healthy You Hypnotherapy Instagram – Healthyyouhypno twitter – @hypno_healthy Website – www.healthyyouhypnotherapy.co.uk
What is your favourite thing to do as a family?
I absolutely love being by the sea with my family. We recently had a amazing autumn break in Wales which involved sandcastles, paddling, running on the sand, listening to the waves and having the wind in our hair. Awesome!
Top Mama tip…
Try not to compare yourself to other people. Motherhood can be challenging and we shouldn’t feel we have to match up to a certain ‘ideal’.
Your mama confession…
I generally don’t buy ‘naughty’ food but I have been known to pinch some of my daughters giant chocolate buttons! They taste so much better than the normal size ones!
Caroline will be coming in to talk at Mama Social on Friday 12th May 10am at The Showroom
