SOME OF THE AREAS IN WHICH HYPNOTHERAPY CAN HELP:
Self Esteem & Confidence
In a world where beauty is the result of Photoshop and social media gives the impression that every else leads a full and exiting life, many people have insecurities, little self belief or lack confidence. This often results in self consciousness, lost opportunities and a lack of general happiness. Why should anyone feel like that when hypnotherapy can help by encouraging the mind to be a supportive partner in life rather than one that gives worry and doubt.
Stress & Anxiety
Most issues which affect us in modern life can be traced to stress and anxiety. A huge list of conditions from substance misuse to IBS, negative thinking to insomnia, poor concentration to an inability to relax can all be the result of stress. However, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Self-doubt, nail biting, feelings of being overwhelmed, a failure to look after yourself, weight loss or gain and unexplained aches and pains can all be the result of living with stress, and this is by no means an exhaustive list. Hypnotherapy is an effective way of dealing with stress and its associated conditions.
While fear is a necessary and important part of survival, a phobia is an unreasonable fear response. There are no poisonous spiders in the UK, but some people are still terrified of them. Flying is statistically safer than driving, but there are people who drive everywhere who won’t even consider getting on a plane. Phobia becomes a problem though when it starts to limit the opportunities people have in life. Hypnotherapy can help you overcome a phobia and move on with your life.
Pain is a paradox. Our ability to feel pain acts as a signal that something has went wrong in our bodies and needs to be addressed. However, we can continue to feel pain long after the message has been received and we are taking steps to rectify the issue. By this time, pain isn’t serving a purpose, instead it is causing suffering and discomfort. Hypnotherapy can help people living with chronic pain find relief.
A word of caution, while hypnotherapy can help with pain management - it won't cure the condition that is causing the pain. If you have arthritis the discomfort can be helped but the arthritis will still be there.
