“Millions of people are suffering mental anguish and are striving unsuccessfully to find help. Hypnotherapy is the answer for most of them because it is short-term, safe, practical and effective.”
Quite often some of the problems we face in life, whether it’s an emotional problem such as depression or anxiety, or fears and phobias, or bad habits operate from a subconscious level. The subconscious mind knows to make your heart beat, how to make your hair and nails grow, and to shut down your digestive system and make you sweat when you get nervous. It also acts as a short cut to allow us to respond to the world and take action without always having to spend time analysing and thinking things through. For example, the last time you drove your car, for the most part unless you’re a new driver, what you did was led by your subconscious mind as it has learnt all the combined actions needed to operate a car safely, and that’s why when driving you might find yourself coordinating multiple actions all at once without needing to ‘think’ about it. This is also why just trying to think differently is so hard when trying to stop anxiety induced panic attacks, phobias or compulsive behaviours and habits as often the subconscious mind is in charge and repeating what it has learnt to do.
I use hypnosis among other psychological techniques as part of my coaching services, because hypnotic trance is a very natural state for human beings and is a very effective way for us to learn new ways of thinking, feeling and behaving. It is a very quick, effective and effortless way to bring about personal change at a subconscious level so that your subconscious mind runs in a way that work best for you right now, rather than ways which were once helpful, but are now less so. Even better is the fact that hypnosis is a very pleasant, relaxing state to be in and can be used as a tool to provide relief from stress, anxiety, and depression, while also developing new thought processes and beliefs.
Unlike the way hypnosis is portrayed on TV or in films, when you go into a hypnotic trance state you are still aware of what is taking place, the hypnotherapist is never in control of you and cannot make you do anything against your will.
Hypnotherapy can be used for all sorts of psychological and behavioural changes and is used by people from all walks of life with all sorts of goals from company CEOs, to actors, professional athletes and people wanting to stop smoking, overcome fears and phobias, better manage their weight, and develop greater self-esteem and confidence. Some famous people who have used hypnotherapy include Barak Obama, Kate Middleton, Angelina Jolie, David Beckham, and even Albert Einstein!
I use hypnosis to help my clients overcome certain obstacles that stand between them and their goals, which can include such things as social anxiety, performance anxiety, fears and phobias, and confidence. I also incorporate hypnotherapy into my coaching packages as and when appropriate and according to client needs, to help them achieve a deep sense of relaxation, and for relaxation to become a learned habit which is particularly useful for those who suffer with depression, anxiety and stress.
