Connecting You with Your Mind

 In a time when we are becoming more aware of Mental Health and the impact it has over our whole life a greater number of people are reaching out for help.  

Whether this is for overcoming problems or to enhance and improve from their current state, it is becoming more important for people to begin taking control back of their lives. 

Information is Knowledge, ‘Knowledge is Power’ and the more information you have on how your mind works the more power and control you will have in acting and being the 

person you want to be.

Taking the first step in any direction can be a huge leap.  And sometimes it’s difficult to know which way to turn, so many choices, so much information out there.

Perhaps you’re looking for yourself or for someone else, either way a simple message is a start, a good start.  If you’re curious, even if you don’t quite know what you want yet, thats ok, get in touch in your own way. 

I help people get through tough times and so much more.

 Whats written below describes in more detail how i work.  You may want this information or you may just want a bit of time to get to get to grips with the idea of doing something to begin making changes.  Sometimes just asking for help can be the game changer.


As a Mind Coach using iSwipe I educate and guide in How Your Mind Works drawing on your body language to convey your below conscious communication back to you.  This causes an interruption of neurology, old subconscious patterns, which causes you to change naturally in an upbeat, interesting and light way.  This can also open up learnings as to what is driving any destructive behaviours on a below conscious level.  This educational based approach is all done in a conversation and has been developed to effectively treat a myriad of mental, physical and behavioural conditions in a fraction of time when compared to other conventional methods.

95% of clients noticed an improvement in symptoms in 3 sessions

‘The Screen’ – The Hudson Mind Theory© (HMT)

The Screen’ The term coined by Matt Hudson to help people understand and get to grips with where we store information in our minds.  Our Biofield, this is what we subconsciously respond to which allows us to interact in life as human beings.  The most current up to date science is showing that our mind is outside of us.  This means memories, information, experiences, all our life’s ‘happenings’ are stored in a Biofield outside of us.  All this information could be simply called ‘learnings’ because it allows us to interact with world and others around us.  These learnings are continually being referred to and replayed in our minds, outside of us, giving us this ability to function and interact.  Problems arise when these experiences are stored with an emotion.  These are know as Emotional Memory Images (EMI’s) and they can be limiting, preventing us from thriving and developing in life.  They cause us to stay stuck and can lead to many of the following common conditions.

Memories can be linked with all the emotions we experience but it’s the memories that are perceived as a trauma that will often be the root cause of our problems.  A trauma is simply put a memory linked with a negative emotion, an Emotional Memory Image (EMI).  This could be an incident in the past that was a threat to our survival, a situation that we didn’t understand or felt helpless in. If these memories have not been processed, understood, resolved (how ever we could be choosing to word it) by the subconscious mind, it will still be repeating and playing on our screen influencing our thoughts and actions.  And because it is coming from the outside in, this means the memory has the ability to trigger our fight or flight mechanism in our brain.  We are firing a fight or flight response in our body from our own thoughts and experiences – HMT

During a session I work with you to gain access to what is causing your problem.  As an iSwipe trained practitioner I observe where you are storing this information in your mind using your body language, and all your below conscious cues and markers.  This brings new information in to you and we can then work to alter and change how or what you are experiencing.  I check in with you moment by moment recalibrating as the changes are happening.  You will be learning how your mind works and what has been driving you on a below conscious level.

The subconscious mind is super fast at communicating and indicates before we vocalise.  So it is the moment of accessing the problem that is most important.

This means the problem doesn’t need to be described in detail, if at all. The more we talk about a problem the more we are bringing it up on our screen which fires up our fight or flight response creating stress in our body.  As we talk about the problem, bringing it into our mind has in itself a physiological effect of shunting blood from our forebrain to our primitive brain, and this means we can not think logically about our problem and simply put we produce more stress hormones.   

Its fascinating watching how the mind is working and so beautiful witnessing the changes.

Want a bit more science?  Below for you……….

The Cerebellum or the small brain is responsible for the regulation of motor movements. Posture, coordination, stability and even speech are linked to this part of the brain that allows all of this information to run smoothly through our muscular activity. Although about 10% of the total weight of the brain it holds over 50% of the brain’s neurons, so it may be an older part of the brain from an evolutionary stance, yet it’s input to our everyday lives is crucial. 

The Amygdala is associated with emotions, pain and pleasure and it drives motivation for both. A simple way to think about the amygdala is as a fear response, if there is any sign of danger the amygdala will act as a turbo booster and thrust the rest of the body into taking action. Sometimes fatigue and lethargy are actions too, as by appearing sick, a predator may leave you alone. 

Brodmann’s Area 19 (BA19) is where raw images from the eyes are first registered and then the information is quickly distributed to other areas of the brain where by meanings can be interpreted about what has been seen. 

Emotional Memory Image (EMI) is an image that holds emotional content that has not yet been processed via Brodmann’s Area 19 

The Screen is the term given to the holographic working space in front of a person. It is here, we hypothesise, that the Emotional Memory Images are stored intact until they are worked with, using the Hudson Mind Theory©, to allow for Brodmann’s Area 19 to disseminate the EMI as it would any other raw images.   

Fight, Flight, Freeze, Flock…  are all the ways the Amygdala can choose to cope with a threat.



Skin Irritation

Skin Conditions, Eczema, Psoriasis, Dermatitis?

Whats getting under your skin? Whats irritating you?

For our skin to react to something, for us to have allergies, more often than not an event, a shock, causes our system to have a very strong reaction, and it gets stuck on this. I can help you uncover what you’re scratching the surface of.

Skin complaints can also lead to depression, anxiety and other mental health problems. It’s difficult, embarrassing, uncomfortable and can be helped. Drop me a message,


Why is it so Difficult?

Ever wondered why it’s so hard for people to speak out when they’re suffering from depression?
You hear of people taking their lives without anyone else knowing, seeing the shock of the others they were closest to.
Our mind keeps us inside our head, in a problem state we internalise everything, even to consider talking about it can be an uphill struggle. So much going on inside and don’t know how or where to begin.
When in it, you know it.
A start can come from sending a message, just a gentle enquiry can open so many possibilities……

What is the difference between how I work and other conventional methods of helping people with Mental Health Disorders.

It uses the most current up to date information on how the mind works.

Life coaches, who have been taught to read non-verbal communication to the highest level, are more likely to be able to help you to change your mind for the better.

You dont go into detail about your problems. Sessions are kept upbeat, light and with humour and learning.

It uses the most current up to date information on how the mind works. Can you imagine what it was like making a phone call in the early 1900’s? Having to go through the operator, shouting, crackly and difficult to hear?! Then how it evolved and improved in speed in clarity, let alone the size of the device. And now? Wow, the speed, quality, size and add on’s…. conference calling, seeing someone face to face no matter what the distance between you.
This is how the Hudson Mind Theory compares. Matt uses the latest science and understanding of the mind coming to give us the fastest, clearest most efficient and effective way of helping people to change. Why crawl when you can run?

95% of client’s working with a Body Mind Worker have reported that their condition has improved within in three sessions or less.


Life coaches, who have been taught to read non-verbal communication to the highest level, are more likely to be able to help you to change your mind for the better.
The Hudson Mind Process (HMP) has been used effectively to treat many different mental health conditions and the reason it can be applied to so many diverse issues is simple, these life coaching sessions focus directly on how you access the area right in front of you whilst you think about your problem. Each tiny micro movement and ideo-motor response that your body produces is analysed and fed back to you; creating a direct pathway from your below conscious communication to your consciousness.


You dont go into detail about your problems. Sessions are kept upbeat, light and with humour and learning.
This unique life coaching process is carried out with the minimal amount of content, which means that you don’t have to tell your life coach the story behind your problem. As you begin to do your problem that is when we can read your below conscious communication back to you. Going into detail only perpetuates the cycle, reproduces the negative chemistry and deepens the wound. No detail means a lighter upbeat session and we bring humour in to the learning to create the best chemistry in you which is proven to enhance learning and creativity. All this creates a win-win scenario for both you and me 🙂



We all perceive things so very differently……
Knowing this may allow you to respond to mis-understandings with a bit more ease and peace.
We are all so individual, we take information in and use it based on what we have learned already through our senses, through experiences.
If there is ever a mis-understanding (which lets face it, there so often is!!) just take a moment and remember this.
We have all had different experiences and learning and this means no two people will ever be the same.
If you have a moment now, read this poem below it may allow you to get a feel of this in another way

First Day at School  – Roger McGough

A millionbillionwillion miles from home
Waiting for the bell to go. (To go where?)
Why are they all so big, other children?
So noisy? So much at home they
Must have been born in uniform
Lived all their lives in playgrounds
Spent the years inventing games
That don’t let me in. Games
That are rough, that swallow you up.

And the railings.
All around, the railings.
Are they to keep out wolves and monsters?
Things that carry off and eat children?
Things you don’t take sweets from?
Perhaps they’re to stop us getting out
Running away from the lessins. Lessin.
What does a lessin look like?
Sounds small and slimy.
They keep them in the glassrooms.
Whole rooms made out of glass. Imagine.

I wish I could remember my name
Mummy said it would come in useful.
Like wellies. When there’s puddles.
Yellowwellies. I wish she was here.
I think my name is sewn on somewhere
Perhaps the teacher will read it for me.
Tea-cher. The one who makes the tea.

Hair Loss

According to the NHS, Alopecia affects 2 in every 1000 people in the UK.
Stress is tough enough to be dealing with, and then to be loosing hair as a side effect is devastating for people. Or hair loss being the result of an illness or medication causes severe emotional stress.

It’s not only loosing hair that can be a problem but the condition, ie dull, dry and thinning, premature greying, can all be as a result of stress.
Ive just been browsing through a health magazine and saw a spread of pages on advice, supplements & hair treatments which more often that not only temporary supports. I used to work in a herbal remedy shop and recall numerous times people were coming in for lotions and potions to help them stop loosing their hair. It surprised me how many people were affected by alopecia, or just loosing chunks of hair at a time. If only I had known then what I know now! (When have you heard that before?!)


Don’t support it, SORT IT.

Your hair is produced naturally and effortlessly by your body, how often have you sat there and thought i’m going to grow my hair for today? Bit of a laugh right? You’ve just grown it naturally right? With out even thinking about it, haven’t you?

If your body is stressed then all of its resources will be going into the fight or flight response, and as we’ve mentioned before in this post Gut Health Blog.  The last thing your body does is digest food which means lack of nutrients does it not?  So you can eat all you like to support your hair and consume supplements and if your system is not digesting you will not be able to assimilate and process any ofit! You may as well be throwing your money down the loo….

Invest wisely….

SORT the stress by simply learning how your mind works and this means you can unlock your own problems, form your own solutions all with your own resources which you already have in side of you, that you just didn’t realise yet………

I can help you unlock your full potential

Allow your body to get back to doing what it does best…….                       Thriving, Living, Being

New Year Resolution same as before?

Depression, Anxiety, Insomnia are just some of the Mental Health Problems that I help people work through and resolve.

As a Body Mind Worker (BMW) using the Hudson Mind Theory I educate and guide people in how their Mind Works. Learning about your subconscious communication causes an interruption of problems and patterns and creates a new awareness of your below conscious drivers.

Your conscious mind is your decision maker and it is only 10% of your being.   Every decision you make is based upon all your previous learnings, which forms the other 90%.  Imagine how much more focused and successful you will be when you’re able to relearn from old learnings and get your subconscious mind on your side so you can achieve those goals you have been wanting for so long.

In a session you are given the opportunity to learn what your subconscious is communication and this learning allows for natural changes that fit in with you that you choose.  It’s all done in an upbeat, interesting and relaxed session in person or online.

Just in a conversation, using the art of language you can over come and change from physical, mental and emotional problems.
If you know someone who is really ready for change now, let them know help is available & share this post 🙂

Silent Communication

If verbal communication is only 20% what is the other 80% saying?

After two days up in NEC at the Therapy Expo, we had the opportunity to share the HMP with people already in the field of helping others.
What do we do? We create a learning environment which allows people to understand how the mind works
How can this help? Learning how the mind works gives you the most incredible skills to observe how and what a person is truly communicating. If verbal communication is only 20% what is the other 80% saying? and how do you learn to interpret it?

Reading the silent communication, that which is below conscious, as a practitioner helps you to notice what your client is really saying. What are they genuinely communicating to you?

The Therapy Expo gave us the opportunity to show other practitioners what they could be learning to enhance their already existing practices.

Learn all that you can about the Body & Mind. For more details click here.

Remembrance Day

Lest we forget that those that survive can often return home with more that what they left with. A traumatic incident can Leave an imprint on a mind and PTSD can rarely be changed with medication. The mind needs to change what it is experiencing.

How can HMT – Hudson Mind Theory help?
What if the mind is outside of us, a screen in front of us where our memories are stored.

If a significant event is imprinted on our mind and is continuously playing on our screen outside of us then this could answer the long asked question of “why is it someone with PTSD has a highly stimulated visual cortex when they are just looking at a blank wall?

Brodmann’s Area 19, part of our Visual Cortex is continuously lit up in someone experiencing PTSD.  Anything coming in from out side of us goes through the visual cortex, if a viewed image is traumatic, not understood or unknown then our fight or flight response is triggered.  If this trigger is not understood, changed or filed away then it gets stuck and repeatedly plays on our screen causing a constant stress response.  Stuck in fight or flight.  For a more scientific description, click here  The Hudson Mind Theory

As a body mind worker the HMT uses language and you, your mind to allow you to process and change what is on your screen, on your mind. You don’t have to talk about the experience, some people don’t even remember the experience or block it out, and this is ok, because its the subconscious thats stuck in the problem and this means your subconscious is doing the problem and it knows how to make your change.

Medication can not change a memory, it can make it hazier or easier to manage, but until that memory is processed, mental health problems, flash backs, physical health issues, addictions will almost certainly arise.
As a Body Mind Worker using the HMT I can help.
