7 podcasts to help inspire change and build new habits

What really inspires us to make positive changes, and build new, sustainable habits? It’s easy to feel a spark of momentary motivation, but all too often, our initial enthusiasm fades and fizzles out as quickly as it first began.

Transforming our habits is a process that takes time, effort, and continued work to see lasting progress. Hypnotherapy can be a positive way of learning and implementing the new thought processes and ideas needed to help us keep these changes in a successful and meaningful way.

If you are considering hypnotherapy, discovering more about the different types available and how they can help can be a great starting point. But if you’re not a huge fan of reading or are short on time, wading through so many articles can feel cumbersome and daunting.

We’ve put together a list of great podcasts from hypnotherapists, well-being practitioners, counsellors, and more, to introduce you to some of the different areas where hypnosis may be able to help you make changes – big and small – in your life.
