A podcast for those wanting personal development but want it made simple and easy to understand and more importantly use, take action and make a difference to your life and the world you live in.

If you want to change the way you feel and the way you act and react. If you have negative emotions, behaviours, that you want to lose forever and create something special in your life then I think you will like what you hear.

This genre of self-improvement, self-development and mastery of your mind has, I believe, been made over complicated and secretive and here I am de-constructing the processes into their simple forms that we can all understand and easily use. There’s no interviews just little ol’ me ;0)

Who am I and what do I do?………Paul Clough.

I now love helping making changes in people and guiding them to create the life they really want.

A personal look at me:

The above sentence was not always the case and being the best in the financial realms of the building industry was my aim and getting there by any means. I now know this is, and was, the worst way ~ even if I did make director of one of the largest building companies in Cambridge by the age of 30.

One of the major realisations came on my first ever training in hypnosis. I found that it’s not a win lose world and that a win win is only a low basis to live.

Being true to your beliefs and coming from a place of integrity where service is paramount. This understanding together with lots of NLP skills helped create my last partnership in the building industry grow from a turnover of £800k to £16m in less than twelve years and that can only be done with giving more than expected.

Another shaping of me came from two traumatic events in my life that happened within six months of each other which created a number of major changes in me and by beliefs in what is possible. I have written about my experience and how I dealt with it but more importantly it really showed me my love for my three boys and theirs for me and resulted in the step up to become a trainer of NLP (which I never intended) and my close and exciting work with two of my sons. In supporting Joseph and help create change in people in our training’s and his wonderful life changing ‘Be your potential weekend’ and with Luke the continuing development of Cambridge Hypnotherapy and Hypnosis processes. My relationship with my third son Daniel just keeps getting better and better too.

Not knowing how good I had become in change work in the beginning I generally studied, practiced and saw clients then things started to happen when I started to work following just my instincts. Two clients come to mind both in effect dying from the effects of what was happening to them and the way they felt and within one and two sessions respectively not only won the will to live they changed virtually in front of my eyes and being apart of that process was and is the best feeling alive.

The above are just three of many brilliant learnings I have had in my life.

    FMQ 327 Old Advice or Good Advice

    Old Advice or Good Advice It seems to me that some people will only take new advice, maybe only when scientifically offered as confirming what we already know because the other advice is out of date. Well, take the teachings of the Stoics, Lao Tzu, Marcus Aurelius, Huna and so much more just going to prove there is very little new new. The real skill is how to use and adapt those teachings in this time, in your life, and in your style. Take it and develop it. And then make sure you share it. Because when yo

    # 222 When is It Not Good To Forget

    When is It Not Good To Forget and remember in the right way We all have things/events in our past we would live to forget as if they never happened. As we think of them, remember them we still feel that negative emotion, in other words- still feel bad. Now as a hypnotist I could make them disappear. I could but I wouldn't. Now you might be fooled into thinking well if you can make these memories disappear that would be a good thing but there are good reasons why they are still affecting you and there's a ve

Love listening to Paul

Paul Clough has a great voice to listen to and has gotten me interested in looking into NLP training. I listen to his podcasts regularly and everything makes sense and is explained in easy language. His inner confidence series that he offers is great.

Great Tools for Self-improvement

I really enjoy Paul’s podcast. He explains a lot about how to get past the limiting beliefs and stories that you’ve been telling yourself, and to finally break free from negative emotions. Definitely recommend.
