Ashley Madison Hack

Cheating boyfriend checking out another girl

Back in August 2015 the Ashley Madison website was hacked and the details of it's users were released online.

So I did a bit of statistical analysis on each city and worked out the percentage of users per population.

And I've uncovered a disturbing trend for some major Australian cities. (see table below)

Las Vegas
San Antonio
San Diego
Sao Paulo
New York
Rio de Janeiro
Los Angeles

Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Melbourne take out 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th respectively. Significantly higher than some of the major cities around the world (except Calgary) and even more than Sin City (Las Vegas) itself.

So now the question begs why are there so many Australian men prepared to have affairs with married women? ( has reported almost none of the "women" on the site were real)

It could be:

He doesn't feel appreciated in his current relationship?

He is immature and thinks he can get away with it?

He is insecure and the affair makes him feel good?

He has past trauma issues such as physical abuse, neglect or sexual abuse?

I guess there could be many, many reasons for men cheating, but the point of this blog is not to point fingers or place blame.

It's merely to present my findings, all relationships are complex changing environments which both parties are responsible for maintaining to a healthy level.

And in my humble opinion the best way to maintain a healthy relationship is to work on yourself first so you are not bringing fears or past traumas into the relationship.

Hypnotherapy can be a great way to clear these fears and past traumas.

Forget Motivation

When it comes to achieving your goals, most people will likely tell you that motivation is the key. But unfortunately motivation is short lived. That's why it's more important to use discipline in your life. Motivation is defined as "having a strong reason to act or accomplish something". Whereas discipline is defined as an "activity, exercise, or a regimen that develops or improves a skill". Muhammad Ali was quoted as saying "I hated every minute of training, but I said, Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion". So even one of the greatest athletes of all time was never really motivated to train but it was his discipline to train that made him successful.
So if you use discipline to exercise or accomplish your goals your motivation to do them is irrelevant; you just get in and do it, no excuses. But how do you cultivate discipline? One method that can help is hypnotherapy. You can see a hypnotherapist such as myself to help you develop your self discipline or even listen to hypnosis MP3s from regularly. It is my belief that it does take time to build discipline. But if you are willing to work on it you will always have the energy and commitment to succeed in life.

Other ways to cultivate discipline is to do something physically hard like Qigong, Martial Arts or Bikram Yoga. I can say on a personal level that my martial arts training has definitely given me discipline which I have applied to all areas of my life. And I would not be the man I am today without it.

However, discipline is nothing without a clear path in your mind about what you want. No amount of discipline will help you find a goal, but simply help you achieve it. Once you realise what you want to do, the consistency you receive from your discipline will allow everything to fall into place. We all have one thing that we wish we could accomplish. Do not let anything, or anyone, stand in the way of what you want to get out of life and take control of your decision making today.

Hypnotherapy for Sports


An article on named Hypnosis: Does It Really Work discussed about the success that people achieved in different fields through hypnotherapy. The article suggests that hypnotism helps to create a mental shift that affects body functions. A lot of people know that they have the potential to achieve more in their life but struggle to get there, this is where hypnotherapy comes in. It gives your mind the power to make your body perform up to its maximum level. The article also discusses that Hypnotherapy has had some success in sports as well. There has been a lot of research on the use of hypnotherapy in different sports. In every sport there have been occasions where seasoned athletes experience a drop in their performance and then over time start performing well again. The question one should ask is why did they start performing poorly when they have loads of experience. The answer is simple, because of their mindset. When they correct their mindset they get back to their peak performance or better. Hypnotherapy can work for athletes from all sports because it allows them to remove their limiting beliefs. Even at the international level, sports trainers use hypnotherapy to relieve the athlete’s stresses of competing at this peak level.

Hypnotherapy can help players become more confident. It can help them concentrate more on their game. An athlete with good technique might succeed but an athlete with a combination of good technique and a good mindset will definitely succeed. There are certain athletes in every sport who stay calm under pressure when a lot of the other athletes make mistakes. This all comes down to having the right mindset and positive self talk. Hypnotherapy can help an athlete remain calm under pressure. The toughest opponent an athlete will face is themselves, hypnotherapy helps change their internal belief system. Once the athlete’s limiting beliefs have been removed they will experience a positive change in their performance. This was proved in 1952 by Roger Bannister. He was the first man to run the mile in under 4 minutes, which had been deemed unbreakable as the world record stood for 9 years. But within a year, 30 other runners had achieved a similar time.

I’ve successfully worked with a lot of martial artists to help them increase their performance in the cage/dojo. Many have requested to be able to better control nerves before a fight or remain relaxed during a fight so they can react quicker. It is my belief that the next level of increased performance in the mixed martial arts arena will be from mental training. Because as the saying goes “it is the mind that moves the body.”

The results of the study showed that 85% of people stayed with a regular workout program the entire six months of the project.

Hypnotherapy is becoming more and more popular because many mums, feel that it helps them relax and prepare for the process of childbirth. Going into hypnosis allows the mind to get into a tranquil state before childbirth. Hypnotherapy for childbirth puts the mum to be in a relaxed mental state that helps keep her calm while focusing on positive feelings rather than outside distractions and the physical pain her body may be experiencing.

Expecting parents can go through a childbirth hypnosis program, where they learn new positive and reinforcing words to use during the process in order to break the association of birth with pain and discomfort.

Every woman is different and it all really depends on your body and what you're most comfortable with.
