A small, yet powerful moment of Duncan Price’s childhood became an important part of who he is which lead to the vital part of creating the business he has today. At approximately 7 years of age, Duncan was eating in his garden when his mother brought him a drink. The drink was in his favourite cup along with a spiral straw. His mother took a sip and this drove to Duncan to react in a manner of which struck an emotional chord of melancholy as she far from asked for permission to drink from Duncan’s cup. Duncan darted off to his room and reflected on the way he reacted to the situation. He realised then the reaction might have been far from a logical response, however, as a child it mattered vastly and he decided at this age he aimed to make a difference in his mindset.
About 12 years ago, Duncan met a hypnotherapist. The hypnotherapist explained the difference between ‘stage hypnosis’ and hypnotherapy, explaining how natural hypnosis is and how powerful it may be. Duncan researched further into hypnosis which led to conversations and knowledge enabling Duncan to take the time to train and develop his understanding of the mind. With training and further understanding, Duncan set up a business offering hypnotherapy, NLP and other techniques to help people enjoy productive and healthy life changes. Duncan aims to educate his client to be more responsible for their lives. He states “Change your reactions = change your outcomes.”
the Jupital had the opportunity to ask Duncan some questions:
the Jupital: What is the most interesting thing you have learned about yourself as you have developed throughout your career?
The most interesting thing I have learned about myself, as I’ve developed through my career, is how much I am capable of. The human mind is an amazing thing and by working with it one may achieve so much more than I had ever imagined. There are many limiting beliefs to which people subscribe and breaking those beliefs is amazingly empowering, offering great opportunities of self development.
the Jupital: What advice might you suggest to someone who is keen to setup their own business?
“Do it”. If you want it, you have to make it happen. If it is unable to go a certain direction to begin with then use this to learn from, adjust as needed and find a new approach – embrace your experiences, embrace feedback. Step out of your comfort bubble and you experience new things.
the Jupital: What do you think the most important aspect to ones well being is?
The most important aspect to ones wellbeing is mindset. It’s the foundation on which wellbeing is built. People may often make their reactive decisions when mentally uncalm, looking after one’s mental health and focusing ones mindset allows for better decision making and greater awareness of ones own needs. All too often I have seen people focusing on money as if this may be answer to all their challenges. Yet with the correct mindset the money flows and the challenges release.
Many clients who come to Duncan have challenges with emotions and confidence. Duncan supports them with a free guide to enjoying a better quality sleep.
