Going Under The Knife Using Only Hypnosis

At first glance, the scene unfolding around Philippa Plaisted as she lay on the operating table appeared completely in keeping with the setting.

A Hypnotherapist Perspective On London Marathon

Well it was my slowest recorded marathon time by over 40 minutes at 4 hours, 28 minutes… Yet this Sunday just gone was the most enjoyable marathon I have run, for many reasons. What a day.
