Currency trading is very much like gambling. You trade a certain amount based on market trends and analysis and whilst you aim for growth, there is very often loss. So how can hypnotherapy help? Every trader will experience a loss - fact. How the trader reacts to this loss depends very much on his state of mind. Many traders go on to experience a deterioration in attitude. Some have not quite accepted the risk of loss and so it hits them hard. They blame the market, not themselves. The loss causes emotional pain. Some traders get angry, some traders get thoughtful, others let it affect their self esteem. This emotional pain then influences thier ability to trade appropriately. Many will stop trading for a few days, others will try breaking away from their strategy in a desperate attempt for a quick win. Inevitably, this leads to loss. This leads to more negative emotional reactions and it can spiral very quickly into a bad pathway for the trader.
Hypnotherapy can help the trader. Firstly, through the use of regression, the trader can understand their reactions to a loss. Logically it should be similar to a win, the inevitable becuase traders have to win and have to lose. But its not always so easy for some traders and the pleasure to pain reaction experienced will be based on and reasonate with pleasure pain experiences in their part. By enabling them to deal with this, they can start changing the way they react emotionally to a loss.
Hypnotherapy can also help becuase it can increase focus and attention, enabling the trader to stick to their strategy rather than deviate, to pull out at an appropriate time when the market is heading towards a loss, and to keep in the trade for a good enough time to make a better win. Many traders are 6 or 7 pips up when they leave a trade, they see it soars to 20 pips and then feel bad about themselves for not staying in the trade.
Hypnotherapy cannot influence when you win and when you lose, it cannot dictate how much money you can gain, but it can help you believe in yourself, maintain focus and self control, and it can help you understand your reactions and change your behaviours.
Exhulation at winning can lead to a boom bust style of working - this is not succesful becuase you are up and then you take too many risks and read the signs wrong. Why? Becuase you are so busy looking for positive signs that you ignore the negative signs?
New Trading Package for 2012!
In addition to my highly personalised sessions I am now offering an eight session package specifically for traders. The eight sessions will target the following areas:
- Welcoming financial abundance
- Overcoming obstacles e.g. fear/issues with success
- Stress management
- Opening up success
- Confidence building & self acceptance
- Becoming a powerful trader
- Modelling effective traders
- Hypnotherapy session tailored using your methodology
Based on these sessions I can create a personal trading CD highlighting important elements for you at an additional cost. You will also have a free consultation. Each session lasts upto 50 minutes and depending on what we discuss during the consultation, the content of the 8 sessions may change slightly and uses a combination of both hypnosis and NLP.
Additional sessions can add the more personal in depth therapy whereby we get more into the detail of exactly what you do. If there are specific issues you need help with, for example, how you react to losing a trade then I would also recommend hypno-analysis which looks at resolving any subconscious issues that may be blocking your path to being an effective trader.

Trading - Improving consistency
Case study: This client came to see me to investigate whether hypnotherapy would be able to help him become more consistent in his approach to trading and help him to follow his trading methodology of choice. This client would find that when he lost at a trade, he would suffer with low mood and either stop trading for a bit or make rash decisions and trade badly. This would affect his self esteem and his self belief and turn into a cycle of failure. Through a combination of analysis and suggestion work my client was able to move past emotional issues that had caused him to react the way he used to. As a result, he now follows his methodology religiously and has begun to grow his trading success.
Case study: Female 29, approached me to find out whether I could help her trade better. After the initial consultation, it was revealed that a lack of confidence and no goal management was in place. Using a combination of regression and suggestion work, my client came to realise she needed to review her trading method and decided she felt confident in her abilities to find a method that worked better for her. We spent time planning a realistic approach to her becoming a full time trader and she now has confidence in her future as a successful trader.
Case Study: Male 42 - This person had been trading for almost 10 years and had developed his unique techniques. However, he was still making consistent losses and was unable to leave his full time job to become a full time trader. Using regression therapy, talking therapy and suggestion, my client was able to understand himself better. He began to accept himself more as an individual and this increased self-liking and confidence, led him to begin revising his trading and he has gone on to trade in a better frame of mind and is now making consistent profit.
