My name is Thomas Hall. I’ve been practicing as a hypnotherapist for over eleven years now, and a couple of years ago I set up my own YouTube channel providing users with free access to my self-help hypnosis videos.
By far the most popular are those dealing with common mental health issues such as anxiety, panic attacks, stress, and depression. Videos that help manage health and lifestyle problems such as smoking and over-eating are also increasingly in demand.
Those of you who are already familiar with my channel will know that I’m continually up-dating and refining the videos, and that I’ve recently up-loaded many video subjects in ‘Affirmations’ and ‘Sleep Subliminal’ formats, which I hope will appeal to a wider audience, enabling more people to benefit.
If you would like to know more about how the video recordings work, please check out the FAQs page. If you have any additional questions, you’re welcome to send me a message at any time via the Contact Me page.
So, a bit more about me. I was born in Leicester, England, 33 years ago, and now live about 30 miles away in Birmingham. I originally became interested in hypnosis when I was 16, after seeing a hypnotherapist myself. I found the session to be incredibly helpful, and a few years later, after leaving university, I went on to study therapeutic hypnosis.
I decided I really wanted to have a full-time career in hypnotherapy, so I bought some recording equipment and began making and selling hypnosis CD's. More recently, my YouTube channel has enabled me to expand the range of recordings to include hypnosis, subliminal, binaural beats and affirmation videos for a much wider variety of ailments and conditions.
I’m very interested in animals and the environment. I really enjoy learning about animals and their behaviour, and over the years I’ve volunteered in several animal rescue centres, and also spent a week looking after elephants in Thailand.
Whilst in Thailand I also lived for ten days in a Buddhist monastery. It was a real challenge for me because we weren’t allowed to talk, we had just two simple meals a day (usually a small bowl of rice and cabbage), and we had to sleep on a wooden bed with a wooden pillow. During the day we attended lectures about mindfulness and Buddhism and were encouraged to meditate for several hours at a time. We weren’t allowed access to our mobile phones or laptops, and my only contact with the outside world was a large gecko that came to visit most evenings!
It’s an experience I shall never forget, which definitely helped me to re-evaluate my life and focus on what’s important to me, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to take some time-out for self-analysis.
In the summer of 2018, I began to think about improving my fitness. I wanted to do some sort of exercise, but as I’m not really interested in team sports, and I don’t enjoy going to the gym, I wasn’t sure what to do. When I was young I had a bicycle, but until last year, I hadn’t ridden one for about fifteen years. Yet the more I thought about it, the more it appealed to me, mainly because it also provided an opportunity for adventure! I decided that I wouldn’t just use it once or twice a week, I would set myself a long-distance challenge… I would cycle from one side of the USA to the other!
So, a couple of months later, with very little in the way of preparation, I flew from the UK to Los Angeles. I spent a few days purchasing a bike, lights, pannier bags etc., and then I set out from Santa Monica Pier (California) early one morning, and gradually made my way across country, arriving at Neptune Beach in Jacksonville (Florida) nine weeks later, having covered 2,902 miles!
I kept my laptop and mobile phone with me at all times, so I was able to keep in touch with close friends and family, and maintain my website and social media platforms. But it was a difficult physical and mental challenge nonetheless, and in the early stages there were days when I doubted that I would get through it because I was overwhelmed by the many hundreds of miles ahead of me. So I changed my way of thinking, and just focused on what I wanted to achieve each day as it came, rather than worrying about the days and weeks ahead. I gave myself a (metaphorical) pat on the back each evening when I reviewed how many miles I’d covered, and then set myself an achievable target for the following day. Breaking down a seemingly insurmountable challenge into smaller bite-sized challenges, and focusing on the positives rather than the negatives, really helped me to visualise achieving my goal, and is an approach that can be adapted to a variety of situations.
We all face challenges in life, sometimes by choice, but more often than not as a consequence of events such as a relationship breakdown, unemployment, or the death of a loved one. Facing challenges is a way to push ourselves and see what we are capable of. What's more, it develops our resilience and understanding and makes us stronger. Training for a marathon or learning something new can be very enjoyable, so why not give yourself a fun challenge today?
