Hoffman Newsletter: February 2015
hoffman... When you're serious about change

Confront Fears
Many of us attribute our stress levels to the hectic pace of today's lifestyle but our nervous system is actually conditioned from a young age. So if you're stuck in 'flight or fight' mode or anxiety is easily triggered, it can pay to take a look at your childhood. Hoffman Graduate and singer songwriter Lotte Mullan did exactly that and after years of therapy and depression she found unexpected peace. Her haunting new song about the experience of growing up during her parents' divorce is now the most requested at her gigs. 
If you're just finding out about Hoffman, you can learn more at our Introduction day on February 7th or at our next Information evening on February 24th. Hoffman graduates can also join us at our New Hoffman Support evening in London on February 18th as well as joining the Support Call on February 9th.

We are thrilled with the powerful feature by journalist Keith Cairncross that has recently appeared in 'NewYou' magazine - see more below. And finally, remember to check out our Hoffman Top Tip!

Wishing you courage and adventure   


With love from The Hoffman Team

Living on the EdgeFeatureanchor featureanchor

Lotte Mullan Singer songwriter Lotte Mullan achieved critical acclaim with her debut album 'Plain Jane'. She set up her own record company and wrote a blog about her adventures in the music business that was snapped up for a book and film deal by Elton John's Rocket Pictures. Despite creative success she found herself increasingly unhappy and unable to move on from her turbulent upbringing. After doing the Hoffman Process in 2012 she was inspired to write the haunting song about her childhood 'You must have loved him once' available on the link below.   

'Before I did the Hoffman course I walked around with a constant sense of unease; a feeling that gravity would lose its grip and at any second I'd be flung out into the unknown. There is a strong history of mental illness in my family and I grew up around a lot of unpredictable behaviour including domestic violence...'

NEW! Hoffman Article

New You Magazine Cover"When you have reached a point in life when you are fed up with being fed up, and feel you could be more fulfilled, it becomes obvious that something is holding you back. 

If staying in the 'trance' of daily life is becoming intolerable, then maybe the prospect of getting away from it all to explore the Hoffman process, a residential programme that fosters deep behavioural and attitudinal change may be an option. That's what I did..."

Journalist Keith Cairncross reports on his personal experience of the Hoffman Process in the magazine 'New You.'

Hoffman Monthly Top Tiptoptip

Ducks upside down

Are you a good listener?


Think about it before you answer - listening is not the same as hearing. Very often, we are so taken with the importance of what we have to say and our need to say it, that we interrupt, which literally means 'to break between'. 

It is very simple yet surprisingly difficult to focus actively on what someone is saying to you. To really take on board what they are trying to communicate, reflect on it and respond appropriately.


Today, decide to become a good listener. The other person or people will appreciate your listening and will naturally become more inclined to listen to you.  

Until Next Month...
Fear is just your feelings asking for a hug
