Strategy 5 – Deconstructing Negative Inner Dialogue

Thursday, June 25th, 2015
Sally Stubbs

Sally Stubbs

So here is my next Top Tip Video – Number Five in this Special Series of powerful strategies to deconstruct those negative inner dialogues.
Here I am again!! – I don’t ever give up on you – I’m back with you for a few immeasurably valuable minutes!
Why are these minutes with me so valuable as to be beyond ‘measure’?

Yeah: truly the most powerful thing you can ever do for your self – is to end the seemingly ‘endless’ negative inner chatter, inner ‘bullying’ and free yourself to be yourself – no more lies about yourself in your head!

The lies we ‘hang onto’, often not even knowing we are telling our self lies about our self, are like a damn, damning up, our natural life force flow!

So I’ve renamed these awesome Top Tips, as Golden Keys – they’re not just bl**dy Tips – they are powerful, empowering of your self – they un-damn the damned up natural energy life force flow within you – as with the ‘turn of a Golden Key’ – Click-Unlock!

If you have not been using my first 4 Golden Keys – hey – go do it now! Free your self from the damaging negative inner chatter. I promise you won’t find these Golden Keys in any other
Therapeutic Strategies – not anywhere. You’ll be forever grateful for my ‘Golden Keys’.

My video here will explain about ‘Golden Key’ Number 5 –

Just to recap  – you’ve deliberately, through your own choice, been taking charge of your negative inner chatter – by listing ‘Where did this one come from?’

They came from one of two places: They are messages imported into your mind from ‘big people’ in your life. Or they came from your ‘self’.

Your ‘self’ in emotionally or psychologically vulnerable situations will create inner negative dialogues in an attempt to keep our self ‘safe’.

Such as my example, we say to our self: ‘I’d better keep quiet, not speak up – or they will get annoyed with me – they won’t like, they won’t accept me, they won’t love me’.

Result is that this self-imposed injunction plays on and on – deep in our minds – and we refer to our self as ‘shy’ ‘withdrawn’ ‘scared to speak up’ – ‘I have a tightening in my throat’, ‘there’s a churning in my stomach’ ‘I’m not breathing properly, my heart is pounding’.

The ‘negative inner chatter & bullying of our self’ that came from others – you’ve been recognizing as ‘their messages’ and choosing to return these messages to ‘them’.

Now you need to negotiate with the part of your self who created these negative dialogues.
Negotiation is the ‘Golden Key’ here. Imagine your ‘younger’ self who created this negative dialogue – say to this fragment or part of your self – congruently ‘I understand…….. (you were scared, frightened….)’
Work your way gently – towards being able to say: ‘It’s now safe to give this up…..’

Do go and visit the Amazing, Brilliant, Famous Dr. Tranquility – support her in her Awesome efforts to bring True Healing to all. She is also Great Fun, upbeat – and full of valuable ideas and advice for you. She always has Hope in her voice.

I Love hearing from you: 

“I don’t think there is any such thing as an ordinary mortal. Everybody has his own possibility of rapture in the experience of life. All he has to do is recognize it and then cultivate it and get going with it. I always feel uncomfortable when people speak about ordinary mortals because I’ve never met an ordinary man, woman, or child.”

Rapha Therapy – ‘Cures that Endure’

YOU CAN ……….

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014


Henry Ford

Henry Ford

 ‘Whether you think you can or you think you can’t – you’re right’ Henry Ford

When You Think You Can – You Can!
So how about we pause – just a few seconds for you to Wonder – upon your Beautiful Dream – Authentic Valid & Real.

As we’ve been discussing you ‘journeying across your page’ to Achieve what you want – for You – how come we so often don’t achieve, fully achieve, our Beautiful Dream – when we’re saying here: When You Think You Can – You Can!
So: what’s the problem? Because it seems if we ‘think’ – “I can achieve my Beautiful Dream – today – in an Authentic, Valid, Real – lasting way” then you can.

You can think your Dream – for example:
To stop being anxious, nervous, frightened…….
To stop having no, or little, self confidence.
To stop stressing and stop constantly ruminating.
To sleep well every night.
To say “NO!” and mean “NO!” – to too much food – to someone who ‘door mats’ me………
When You Think Your Beautiful Dream – You (have to) Think It Consciously!
We might think it – however, rarely do we pay the Right attention to our Unconscious Response.

I’ve ‘been there’! Before I ‘journeyed across my page’ I would get anxious about all kind of occasions, for example going to a party. Not the ‘sex drugs rock ‘n roll’ type!! Just something fun & enjoyable.
So, I’d consciously think, there’s no need to be anxious. I’d consciously think my Beautiful Dream: “I’ll have a Great time! I’ll meet someone ‘drop dead’ gorgeous & have an Amazing time. Oh Yeah!”
I’d arrive at the party & have a brutal time – and end up ‘wall flowering’ myself! Because……….
Our Unconscious Mind is ‘Thinking’ something Entirely Different!

We ignore our Unconscious Minds at our peril.
Our Unconscious Mind absolutely is the driving force behind our feelings, therefore our Behaviours. (A behaviour, for example ‘wall flowering’ our self!)

I’ve discovered – it’s taken me over 30 years to do so – the how to Communicate with our Unconscious Mind – elegantly, lastingly & easily. You too can do it.
Communicate with Your Unconscious Mind to Create Lasting Results of Your Beautiful Dream
You can Effortlessly Work with this Unconscious Communication Strategy:
(by the way we’re still Working ‘across your page’)

Take a few minutes – that’s all you need, to write again – ‘Your Beautiful Dream’. To be honest, at this stage we can’t write it too often! So let’s take my example: “I will go to the party.. I will meet someone ‘drop dead gorgeous’. I will have an Amazing time”
Once you’ve got your words for your Beautiful Dream, speak them slowly & out loud. The deal here is – you need to listen, with the wonderful sensitivity that I know you have, to your very next thoughts.
These very next thoughts are a huge ‘Key’ to you achieving ‘Your Beautiful Dream’. Your very next thoughts are Unconscious thoughts – and they will basically be responding with: “I can’t!!

You may well ‘go the party’ (as I did) – then ‘withdraw’. You may well say “NO!” to the food or to the person who has been ‘door matting’ you. You may sleep well for a few nights.

However the “I can’t!!” will eventually ‘block’ – again.

Next week we are going to explore, easily together, what is contained in your:
“I can’t” and how you can differentiate and Resolve your: “I can’t!!”
All the therapeutic audio courses I have recorded use the knowledge I have gained in how to communicate with the unconscious to bring about permanent resolution to problems.

Rapha Hypnosis - cures that endure!

We would like to introduce you to the term Rapha Hypnosis in case you’re not yet familiar with it.

We needed a description to distance and distinguish Sally’s therapy work from Neuro-linguistic Programming, (NLP), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, (CBT), the Emotional Freedom Technique, (EFT), tapping and others, which we collectively refer to as fast food therapy. Why ‘fast food’? Because whilst these therapies appear to work, and quickly, they teach managing skills presenting plausible insights but do not cure the root cause of the problem.

Managing skills means that you need to keep up weekly or daily management of a problem state.

Accessing plausible insights means that you now know why you have a problem, however the problem state persists and needs to be managed or controlled.

At Sally Stubbs Ltd we are only interested in providing curative therapy: work that gets to the root of the problem and resolves it permanently. And this is what Rapha Hypnosis does.  And that is why our strapline is cures that endure!

The word Rapha has its roots in the Hebrew language; Jehovah Rapha being The Lord that Heals.  We are non religious and our focus is on the healing aspect of the word.

To better explain the term, we developed this acronym:


So now to expand on the acronym!

Dictionary definition – ‘(human) Readily recovering from shock, depression etc, buoyant’.
We humans, enhanced by informed action, have these qualities.

Dictionary definition – ‘Combine or unite to form one structure, organisation etc’.

This word has been chosen to indicate that the therapeutic techniques employed in Rapha Hypnosis are many and varied.
They have been learnt and developed over a period of 30 years in private practice and committed continual learning, research and study  over the same period.

We amalgamate:

  • the ‘Clean Language’ approach developed and taught by David Grove;
  • the complexity of Ericksonian therapeutic technologies;
  • the eminent work of Dr. Ernest Rossi and Jungian techniques where appropriate;
  • thirty years of Sally Stubbs’ exceptional experience;
  • NLP – as this can be useful as an aid to communication;
  • Other –  too many to single out!

All of the above strategies have been refined and incorporated into the amalgamation to make Rapha Hypnosis the powerful curative therapy it is.

Dictionary definition – ‘The science of the relation between the mind and the body’.
Sally has been studying and applying numerous therapeutic approaches to connect mind and body for nearly 30 years.

Dictionary definition – ‘To cause a wound, disease or person to heal, be cured or made sound again’.

This is what Rapha Hypnosis audio treatments achieve.

Dictionary definition – ‘A way of dealing with a person, individually’.

There you have it! Rapha Hypnosis – cures that endure!


The Experts

We continue this article by providing you with a brief overview of the above mentioned experts’ methods of working, for your interest:

Dr Milton Erickson
Erickson didn’t use clean language but at least he was aware of the presuppositions of his language.
He is considered to be the Master of Metaphor, i.e. the art of getting the message across by metaphorical suggestion in story form directly to the unconscious mind. Erickson is also considered globally as the Master of Psychotherapeutic and Hypnotherapeutic strategies. “More than any other individual, Milton Erickson has been responsible for shaping the modern view of Hypnosis. His great contribution came from his ability to locate an individuals inner resources for coping creatively with the real problems of every day life.” (Rossi and Ryan)

Erickson himself endured two bouts of polio and was in a wheelchair for much of his later life. He learned to use the healing methods of self-hypnosis and uncovered ways of experiencing living at more profound levels.

Jungian Techniques
Sally studied Jungian work with the eminent Dr Ernest Rossi and Dr Stephen Gilligan
Particularly relating to Jung’s work on individuation, simplistically; The development of the self achieved by resolving the conflicts arising at life’s transitional stages, in particular the transitions from childhood to teenager, and from teenager to adulthood.

Clean Language – David Groove
“I used to watch other therapists work. I wondered, why did they ask that question? I started analysing the questions major therapists used; people like Virginia Satir and Carl Rogers. To begin with I thought it was because they had this huge vast experience. After a while I twigged that, jeepers, they were coming out of their own hallucinations, their, the therapists model of the world. Take Carl Rogers, who I thought would be really ‘Rogerian’! I found his language wasn’t clean in the sense that he kept shifting people. He would use past tense in the present, and then use the future tense and move them back to the present.

So he was often redefining verbally whatever anybody said. He would amplify or redefine the words the client used. Well, when you do that it robs the client of some of their experience. I wanted to know the questions you can ask that don’t have any presuppositions.
So I came up with a set of basic questions and strategies which are neutral and do not interfere with a client’s process. They all start with the conjunction ‘and’… and what that does is facilitate a trance. So the use of clean language is very trance inducing without a traditional induction. It’s a natural induction because the questions don’t pull the client out of their experience. The questions are aimed at the metaphoric part of their experience so they don’t go through normal cognitive processes.”

Of Dr Rossi’s book “The Psychobiology of Gene Expression” Jeffrey Zeig PhD Director of the Milton H. Erickson Foundation writes: “This book is a contribution for the ages. It shows in practical terms how the inter-twined genetic genius of the brain and body can be unlocked.

Ernest Rossi an internationally renowned psychotherapist, hypnotherapist and neuroscientist has discovered fascinating keys to better health and better living. “No chemistry required it is all within.”
Rossi says: “The new understanding of the relationships between gene expression and human experience emerging from the Human Genome Project is setting the stage for a profound expansion of our understanding of life. The new neuroscience discoveries about enriching life experiences, neurogenisis and gene expression, are poised to profoundly expand our understanding of psychotherapy…..”

Sally Stubbs
Rapha Hypnosis  is the application of Sally’s  accumulated knowledge, whether gained from text books, studying with acknowledged field leaders or through experience.
Sally:- “I make no presuppositions in my Rapha audio treatments! If I did, that would be my hallucination about your needs! (David Grove) I do not know your way to a happy stable, well balanced inner ‘home’  but I know that you  know the way. I set you on the path, and I journey beside you. Your unconscious mind is driving your problem state, paradoxically your unconscious, not me,  knows the way out “.(Erickson)
Sally continues; “Rapha Hypnosis does not use any direct suggestion! Direct suggestion does not work to effect change within the unconscious. If it did work our hairdresser or best friend could tell us to relax and suggest we stop eating too much food and lose weight, or be calm and confident or whatever it is we need, and we would not need the genius of those pioneering therapists and me! If I simply tell you by suggestion when you are in a relaxed or hypnotic state to: Be calm, be confident, an unconscious part of you will certainly, sooner or later object and resist! If I tell you by suggestion when you are in a relaxed hypnotic state to: Stop eating so much food, your mind is instantly thinking of food and off you go to the fridge, larder, cake box!”
“There are many, many more ‘nourishing of your inner growth ingredients’ in Rapha Hypnosis – cures that endure!

If you have read all of this article, then that’s quite a lot to digest right now, so I’ll explain more another time”

A gift for you from Sally Stubbs


Happy New Year to you – and of course I know that you want to achieve your New Year’s Resolutions – or why would you have bothered making them!

This time of year generally finds us feeling ‘bloated’ one way or another with Christmas indulgencies or stress of it all or feuds with friends and family, or biting our nails or tearing our hair out! Then – we get a ‘down’ on ourselves, feeling low self esteem because we did not achieve our last New Years resolutions – or the years before – yeah we’ve been here before!

At the same time, we are trying to convince ourself that this year we will lose that dreaded added weight, or be calm no matter what, stop the smoking, feel great and comfortable in our own skin is really what we’re saying! What do we actually really need to achieve all of this, achieve what we want – to be happy, in our own skin? We need mind strength and inner resources and strength.

This has been a subject close to my heart since I went into full time practice in 1982, because until that time, I personally had dealt, with my own mind issues and struggled for many years: I was stressed, scared, yo-yoing weight, lack of self belief, disastrous relationships!

In 1982 – I knew – it was time to: do something different!

I used my learnt and developed therapeutic strategies for me! And I became and still am happy in ‘my own skin’

So here’s what I would like to do: I want to give you the gift of the chance to take control in the area of your life that you feel you need it: Weight, Stress, Self Confidence, Sleeping, Relationships, Smoking, Annoying Habits, Nervousness……

If you would like to do this, do something different, that will really make a difference, and you are prepared to commit half an hour of your time each day for forty days, then you’re with me.

My gift to you is one of my twelve Rapha Hypnosis Treatments on five CD’s or the same on MP3 download if you prefer.

I have three of each title to give away; there is nothing as good or effective available anywhere else to buy. I’ve been perfecting my Rapha Hypnosis audio treatments since 1990.

First come first served! But I won’t say Hurry! Take your time to think about it!

Chose either a Rapha curative hypnosis treatment CD set or a Rapha curative hypnosis treatment MP3 of your choice from my site:

All you need to do is either use the contact us icon on the home page  ( type in preferred CD/MP3 in subject box) or DM me via Twitter using @sallystubbs

After your forty days, I will then be asking the ‘winners’ to write a short review of how my Rapha hypnosis treatment worked for you. I’ll only need one or two lines from you. And like my clients who have given me their testimonial your identity will remain totally confidential, as theirs are.

Read all about me and what I can do to help you on

Watch client testamonials on YouTube – just type in Sally Stubbs!

I am looking forward to hearing from you – and good luck!



Ditch your Demons – The Unconscious Mind

Friday, November 25th, 2011

Using hypnotherapy to ditch your demons

A very warm welcome, and thanks for reading……..

Have we really given serious thought as to exactly ‘where’ our ‘demons’ come from? And then, our next question needs to be ‘what’ exactly are our demons?

These two questions, I warn you, are my special Soap Box, so I make no apologies for being controversial! Controversial is great in my book, because when we think differently from the usual, we get unusual results!

Let’s just consider the second question, just briefly first, (and in more detail later): What are our ‘demons’?
Our ‘demons’ are the thoughts, beliefs and feelings we have that ‘freeze’ us, that stop us ‘dead in our tracks’ that create destruction in the quality of and the celebration of our life.
Thoughts, beliefs and feelings such as fear, nervousness, panic, anger, fury, self doubt, lack of self worth…… exhaustion…… Our list can go on and on……..

So, where do these debilitating, destructive thoughts, beliefs and feelings come from? Well, before we consider the answer to this question, let’s, first of all, ditch our blame culture! Let’s stop blaming our parents, siblings, education, bad relationships, the government, the weather……….
Just go along with me here, and take our first step on a vitally important journey to ‘ditch’ the demons by owning them! By owning them we can then resolve them. They, the demons, come from our own unconscious. If you think about this for a few minutes, it makes sense. You see we do not consciously want to live in dread, thinking and feeling nervous, scared, fearful, tired of it all, hopeless.
Basically we all consciously want to feel and think and be up-beat, optimistic, happy!

OK, our demons reside in our unconscious mind and my speciality, my absolute passion, for the past thirty years has been to devote myself to learning the language, and the ability, to communicate elegantly and successfully with our unconscious mind.
And that basically is what hypnotherapy does – communicates in the language of the unconscious.

Some hypnotherapists today still generally believe that we can say, state, suggest, demand: ‘Demons leave!’ as if speaking to an uninvited, unwelcome visitor in our home! I know this unfortunately isn’t true.
If this type of communication worked to ditch our demons, our best friend or our hairdresser could do this for us, and I’d be out of a job! You know, I wouldn’t mind at all being out of a job, because that would mean we could all of us celebrate our life with a sense of optimism, hope for our future and happiness.
Behind every face we see there are worlds within worlds within worlds of the unconscious mind, and within those worlds reside our demons. We can ‘ditch’ them all when we learn to communicate with them, which may sound to you totally counter intuitive! Let me tell you more about my own special method of hypnosis, which truly does work, next time.

Thanks for listening.

Thinking of you fondly – Sally.

Freedom to be Our Self ?

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011
Using hypnosis to help you break free

Using hypnosis to help you break free

So, what exactly are we discussing together? What do I mean by Freedom to be our self? Freedom to be Happy in ‘our own skin’? Freedom to grow in our unique potential?

And what stops us from being and experiencing and enjoying these Freedoms?

We cannot be Free to fully be our self when we get ‘stuck’. The ‘stuck’ experiences in our minds, in our psychology, are literally that, we are ‘stuck’ we don’t move, we don’t move forward and we don’t ‘grow’!

Why would we be so daft as to get ‘stuck’, you might well ask? Well, for one thing we are not being daft; we are attempting to protect our self, in a crisis or in a trauma, from the next moment getting even worse.
Bottom line? As long as we are ‘stuck’ in that particularly moment and even though it’s horrific, we’re in ‘the firing line’, the ‘bombing’ is happening all around us, we are terrified, but at least we are alive.
We stop time in our mind in case, in the very next moment the ‘bomb’ blows us completely away. Consequently, getting our self ‘stuck’ makes total sense to our unconscious protective mechanisms.

Of course, you could be saying: “Sally, I’ve never been in the ‘firing line’, I’ve never been in a ‘bombing raid’ in my life….. My life has been really peaceful.”
I am so glad you haven’t. I’m so glad you have had a peaceful life.
I have been in the ‘firing line’! That’s one of the reasons I’m so brilliant at, and proud of, what I do and what I achieve for others.
So, you may be like the young lady who came up to me at the Vitality Show after I’d been speaking about this kind of Freedom. She said, (what you are maybe thinking about your life,) that her entire life had been ‘peaceful’
But, she told me that she was a chronic worrier.

As we talked she gained the insights that she had learnt to worry as a little girl because her mother was and still is a worrier.
You too may have got ‘stuck’ with learnt experiences, like worrying, that do not serve you or celebrate fully your life’s expression and experience.

The feeling of being ‘stuck’ is the opposite of freedom to be our self and to be happy and grow in our own unique potential.  Hypnosis sets you free! So, what are you waiting for?

Thinking of you warmly………

Stop Smoking Day

Wednesday, March 9th, 2011

Good idea! Non smoking for a day! Or would you like non smoking for more than a day? For the rest of your life perhaps? A day – or a day at a time is a good way to do it, whatever you choice. Are you really up for it?

If your choice is, this is just one day to be a non smoker – how are you doing? I do hope that it is going well for you. If you are struggling in the least here is a great tip to help you have a really easy time with this.
First of all let me just say that all our behaviour has a purpose, whatever our behaviour.
So discover what is your real purpose in supporting this one No Smoking Day? Our purpose can be multilayered, here’s an example of what I mean by this: My purpose for not smoking today is to prove to myself that I can do it! The next layer could be: What is my purpose in proving to my self that I can do it? Well – if I can do this I will have more self confidence. Next layer: And what is my purpose in wanting more self confidence? I could then have confidence to go out and make some new friends!
See how this has moved from supporting this one no smoking day – to a deeper goal, making some new friends! The want or need for new friends will then really fuel our motivation to achieve this goal for this one day.

And if you want to carry on taking this a day at a time, then really get down to your purposes for doing that. Write them down there will several. Perhaps for you the most obvious purposes will come to you to begin with, Health, finance. There will be more purposes unique to you, keep searching like my example, for the depth of the layers ‘hidden’ within purpose.
Second tip – stop saying words to yourself like “I will stop smoking…” “I will never have another cigarette…” Why? Because your mind and brain are ‘hearing’ Smoking, cigarette and that will cause an enormous inner struggle for you, and suddenly you have to go to the garage and buy a pack of cigarettes and smoke three at a time!
So, What can you say to yourself? Find your own words, but something like: I want and chose to have a really healthy body. I want to save those hundreds of pounds this year. I will use the money for something really special. Then make pictures in your mind of your health improving, and also make pictures of that something really special that your extra cash can achieve for you. Enjoy your health and enjoy affording that something special….. Enjoy achieving all your other unique purposes….
