    Take Your Head on Holiday’
    Experience a virtual holiday using the power of hypnosis
    Wednesday 13th January 2021 @ 7pm

    Amid the anxiety and grief of the pandemic, it might seem silly to focus on holidays. However, they undoubtedly play a huge role in our mental health and wellbeing. Holidays provide escapism from everyday life. The coping process of escapism is common to many people at difficult times in their lives. Escapism is key to our mental health self-care, and it can be good to seek a happy escape when things
    seem impossible – that feeling of “I just need to get away”

    So why not experience a Virtual Holiday using the power of hypnosis?

    Would you like to feel relaxed, rejuvenated and refocussed?

    Come along to this group hypnosis session where I will take you on a journey to a wonderful beach holiday destination.

    When we create a hypnotic state, we can access the sub-conscious mind. The sub-conscious (your imagination) doesn’t know the difference between
    real and imagined.

    The body and mind respond to suggestions given and to what you are imagining! When you imagine it, you FEEL it!

    We will go on a holiday journey and you will also be given suggestions that will benefit your health, wellbeing and your emotional state.

    It’s only £10 and all the money will be donated to one of my favourite local charities, MK Centre for Integrated Living, who have helped so many people I’ve known over the years. MK CIL is an information centre which provides a very wide range of free and confidential information on any disability related issue for people with a disability, their families, carers, and anyone else with an interest
    in the field of disability.

    Please contact me at sue@apaininthemind.co.uk if you would like to join the session and include your email address. I will arrange for you to receive an email with payment instructions and later the joining instructions to this session which will be held via Zoom.

    A Pain in the Mind

    Wednesday 3 March at 7pm-8pm

    Sleep is a built-in ability that usually doesn’t take much effort at all. After all, how simple can it be to sleep? You just close your eyes, relax and get taken away to your dreams. But for many people living with chronic pain, sleeping isn’t as easy as that.

    There are so many great reasons to learn British Sign Language 

    Join our FREE taster session on Monday 12th April 6.30-7.30pm

    Sign Language taster session

    Sign languages are visual languages that use hand, facial and body movements as a means of communication. There are over 135 different sign languages all around the world including American Sign Language (ASL), Australian Sign Language (Auslan) and British Sign Language (BSL). There are also signed representations of oral languages such as Signed Exact English (SEE) and mixes such as Pidgin Signed English (PSE). Sign language is commonly used as the main form of communication for people who are Deaf or hard of hearing, but sign languages also have a lot to offer for everyone. Check out this list of why sign languages are awesome!

    1. Important for Deaf people

    Of course we can’t ignore the most obvious reason why sign languages are awesome. Sign languages are an extremely important communication tool for many deaf and hard-of-hearing people. Sign languages are the native languages of the Deaf community and provide full access to communication. Although sign languages are used primarily by people who are deaf, they are also used by others, such as people who can hear but can’t speak.

    2. More expressive

    Sign languages aren’t just about the hands, they're also about the movement of a person’s arms, body and facial expressions. Facial expressions in sign languages can express both emotion and grammatical information. For instance, eyebrows can be raised and lowered to change the structure of a sentence from a statement to a question. So if you’re ever using sign language, make sure your facial expressions are correct or you could be saying something completely different to what you mean. Plus, with all the extra movement that goes into it, anyone who speaks a sign language is probably burning a few calories every time they talk.

    3. Listening with your eyes

    People who know a sign language are often much better listeners. When using a sign language, a person must engage in constant eye contact with the person who is speaking. Unlike spoken language, with sign languages a person cannot look away from the person speaking and continue to listen. This can be an extremely beneficial habit to have for spoken language as well as sign language. By maintaining eye contact in spoken language, it shows that a person is genuinely interested in what the other is saying.

    4. Helpful for people with Autism Spectrum Disorder

    Some children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) struggle developing verbal communication. Learning a sign language can be a helpful communication tool for some children with ASD. Many children with ASD have demonstrated higher quality communication when using a sign language instead of or in addition to a spoken language.

    5. Having a private conversation in a public place

    This will only work if the conversation can’t be seen by someone who knows a sign language. Sign languages can be a great way to gossip without anyone else knowing, and passing on confidential information. We know more than a few kids who learned a bit of sign language with their friends so they could talk in class without their teachers knowing!

    6. Children can acquire sign language the very same way they acquire spoken language

    For a child, the stages of acquiring a sign language are the same as those for spoken language. The muscles in a baby’s hands grow and develop faster than their mouths so signing can be a better option for early communication, especially when the child still can’t speak. If a baby’s first language is a sign language, they will often start “babbling” with their hands rather than their mouth.

    7. Advantages over spoken languages

    Sign languages can be used when the spoken word is physically impossible, such as talking underwater, talking through glass, from a distance, at a loud music concert, and talking with your mouth full. Sign languages can also let you talk to someone without interrupting others with noise. You can tell your friend how much you hate the movie while in the cinema without disturbing anyone.
