Hypnotherapy can help with a wide range of problems or symptoms. This list is not exhaustive. Please get in touch for an informal chat.
We all know what it’s like to feel anxious from time to time. These feelings usually pass and we return to our happy selves. However, when suffering from anxiety/stress, breaking from the cycle of constant worry is difficult. There is a tendency to worry about future events and negatively introspect about the past. This heightened emotional state can prevent us not only from achieving our goals, but can stop us enjoying ourselves socially too. Hypnotherapy is an excellent tool to reduce anxiety permanently. Once anxiety is reduced, we are able to focus on how you will manage these feelings in the future.
Depression is caused by negative thought patterns. It has a significant impact on the person and those around them. Symptoms can include experiencing sadness, anxiety, irritability, restlessness, withdrawing from social activities, lacking in energy, motivation, disrupted sleep patterns, changes in appetite, and dreading each day. If this sounds familiar, it’s likely that you are suffering from depression.
Hypnotherapy can assist to not only reduce episodes of depression, but even prevent recurrences. It is a very effective tool but also works really well alongside anti-depressants, increasing their efficiency.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is when the person has intense and insistent thoughts of such a nature, that it has a significant impact on their life. The person experiences obsessive thoughts followed by repetitive compulsions or urges.
People with OCD are aware that the thoughts are irrational but are driven to carry out the compulsive behaviours and rituals. They believe this will relieve them of the anxiety that is causing the unwanted thoughts.
Hypnotherapy will enable you to regain control of your life by increasing your skills to be calm and in control.
Pain is our natural way to let us know that something is wrong and should not be ignored. It can range from discomfort, acute or chronic pain.
Acute pain is sudden and the body is aware of the immediate concern. This pain is usually a result of an accident, burn or broken bones. When the underlying cause has been treated, the pain usually subsides.
Chronic pain is persistent even when the underlying cause has been treated. This can result in muscle tension, limited mobility and a lack of energy.
By using hypnosis, deep relaxation becomes the focus and perceptions of pain messages can be changed, helping to reduce the intensity of pain and sensations.
Fears and Phobias
Phobias can cause different physical reactions. Usually the person is aware their response is irrational, which can be harder to accept. The mind is unable to differentiate between real and imagined. The response with any phobia will be the same as if you are in an actual life threatening situation.
Phobias can be quickly reversed regardless of the length of time you’ve suffered. By calming the anxiety and equipping you with tools to deal with the symptoms when you face the phobia.
Modern day living is full of pressures. We’ve become accustomed rushing from commitment to the next, failing to fully appreciate the moment.
Relaxation is important for maintaining a healthy mind and body. Research supports relaxation. How we feel physically can be influenced by the mind. When we are in a relaxed state, our heart rate, metabolism, oxygen consumption, and respiration slow down. Blood pressure and muscle tension are lowered too. Other benefits include the stimulating the release of endorphins and supporting the immune system.
Hypnotherapy is an effective method to help you to stop smoking. The British Medical Association acknowledges it is the most effective help for smokers and is more effective than other methods such as nicotine replacements. Health and well-being is better understood and is becoming a part of everyday life. The pressure to stop is much higher than ever before. The expectations of others particularly those close to us, can have impact upon on our success and this may have contributed to lapses in the past.
Like all Hypnotherapy, it is important that you are ready and you are highly motivated to quit.
Athletes and sports enthusiasts alike are constantly striving to maximise or develop their skills. This is not to suggest that mental practice can replace physical. Hypnotherapy is an effective method because it is goal orientated and builds confidence. It is widely accepted in the sports world that hypnosis can enhance performance.
Food is very emotive. It is important to understand our relationship with food and our behaviour patterns in order to successfully manage weight. There is little to be gained from examining what we eat. There are strong links between stress and appetite impacting on choices we make about food.
Hypnotherapy helps you focus on your long term goal rather short term unsustainable fad diets. By remaining solution focussed, you will be able to move towards your wonderful goal of managing your weight. This will include changes of lifestyle and habits. The sessions are not a ‘quick fix’ but long term change.
