The Hypnotist: Escaping the Village of Fear
To what extent is fear real, and to what extent is it an illusion? Childhood is often conditioned with constant reminders of what could go wrong, with fear being used as a primary way of controlling behaviour. However this can lead into continual anxiety about potential negative consequences as an adult, handicapping our ability to live life to the full. Imagination often amplifies fear: Adam Cox helps to put it into perspective in this episode. Image: Wikimedia

The Hypnotist: The Gift of a Near Miss
We can all think of near misses which could have been devastating, but instead resulted in a massive sigh of relief; but do we always learn the lessons for the future? The real value of such experiences, the real gift, is to see such experiences as an opportunity not to test fate again in that way. In aviation, near misses are generally analysed carefully with a detailed investigation — Adam Cox uses that metaphor to show how the same logic can be applied in our personal lives.

The Hypnotist: The Boy Becomes a Man - Hypnosis for a Chaotic Part
The teenage years are often marked by periods of insecurity and awareness of all the things that can go wrong, and this inner dialogue can persist well into adulthood. However the journey into those later years helps by building resilience based on experience, so that these conflicted paths can be addressed on the basis of a growing store of knowledge. Adam Cox helps those challenged by this anxiety based on an inner dialogue to build a more positive, forward-looking approach.

The Hypnotist: Rekindling Sexual Interest and Attraction
It's hard to think of a better week to publish this episode than just before Valentine's Day: and the research which hit media headlines the week before on the impact of Viagra on reducing Alzheimer's must be a good motive as well! Adam Cox uses regression techniques to re-build relationship chemistry in order to tackle the dynamics that can follow life events such as pregnancy — but of course love is a many-splendoured thing, and eros is only one dimension.

The Hypnotist: for Healing with Slow and Steady Progress

The Hypnotist: for Healing with Slow and Steady Progress
Adam Cox helps with building a positive mindset for long-term health conditions, but the episode also provides an interesting analogy with national economic recovery after the twin shocks of Brexit and the pandemic. He explains how impatience in expecting instant recovery is not helpful, that it's unrealistic to expect to 'wake up and find everything back to normal instantly'. Healing is not binary: it's slow and steady, and an appreciation that 'progress is more important than perfection' leads to a mindset of optimism and possibility. Isn't that just what we need as a nation?

The Hypnotist: Impostor Syndrome Hypnosis - to be yourself
People increasingly resort to 'Alter Ego's to develop a resilient or 'tough guy' persona: possibly resulting from criticism in childhood or difficult experiences in adolescence. Being true to oneself calls for having the internal resources to build emotional resilience, for developing coping strategies to deal with those difficult times. Using analogies and metaphors, Adam Cox looks through those facades to find a resilience based on honesty.

The Hypnotist: Hypnosis for Overeating and Self Control
Excess intake over Christmas and the New Year often leads to constraint in January, but how best to exercise self-control? Adam Cox helps to temper that urge to overeat by resorting to a technique called 'Neuro-Linguistic Programming', through which those compulsions can be collapsed as a result of switching them to a disassociated third person.

Gadgets & Gizmos: Hypnosis for Technology Addiction
Time is the scarce resource in human lives, and technology in its various forms swallows a lot of it for many of us. When its absorption into our lives becomes almost a habit or an addiction, it can cause us to miss opportunities and it can impact our character and even our identity. Whether it's gaming, social media or other online activity that turns you on, the emotional appeal is generally that instant gratification which pulls us away from experiencing real life and relationships. If you're concerned about being drawn into this trap of gaming and virtual experience, this episode could help you restore balance into your life. Originally broadcast on 4th February 2023

The Hypnotist: The Free Wolf in the Wilderness
For many people, there's a continuing internal struggle between the need for comfort and security and the yearning for freedom and adventure, but once settled into the former it can be difficult to face the risks and unknowns of the latter. Doubts about capability and resources can take over, and thoughts about taking a different path can be very challenging. It's really about re-building one's self-belief, and Adam Cox uses hypnotic analogies in order to help you find that confidence.

The Hypnotist: A Daydream of Self-Acceptance
If concerns about how other people think of you develop into seeking to manage those relationships, it can result in giving away control of your thoughts and actions to others. This episode puts forward alternative approaches which help re-build self-confidence, encouraging self-acceptance and self-empowerment to make positive life choices for yourself.
