Significant life events and the day-to-day grind sometimes leave us vulnerable to negative self-talk and stuck emotions. A sort of counter-productive programming can occur in the subconscious mind and become so ingrained that we are no longer aware that the negativity exists at all. These counterproductive thoughts often cause individuals to become depressed, anxious, and often both. Hypnotherapy is a beneficial practice that changes negative patterns, enhances your strengths and creates balance, contentment, and fulfillment.
1) Heightened Motivation, Centering and Becoming Your Own Best Self
To better understand the benefits of hypnotherapy, picture your hypnotist as a guide to help you overcome obstacles and achieve your goals. During our sessions, you enter a relaxed state and begin to let go of negative thoughts and patterns.
My goal is to bring those things that are stuck to the surface and then provide you with suggestions that empower you to find motivation, become centered in the life and grow to be the best person you can be.
2) Becoming Unstuck after a Traumatic Event
Many clients visit my practice to overcome life events such as the death of a loved one, a job loss or divorce. Although the reality of the trauma is static, your attitude surrounding the event or reaction to it is not. When emotions and reactions change, it is easier to move forward and overcome the unhelpful feelings associated with it. Hypnotherapy offers great advantages in this area because it can bypass the conscious mind and provide you with the suggestions you need for recovery.
3) Overcoming Procrastination
Procrastination is often associated with a fear of failure, uncertainty or insecurity, and can impact one’s professional and personal life. You may consciously want to move forward on a path or take on new challenges, but your subconscious beliefs prevent it. The good news is that these unhelpful beliefs can be changed into positive, healthy ones so that you once again experience a natural sense of curiosity about your own potential and abilities. Hypnosis provides you with the essential motivation and the necessary tools to make this happen. The result is a more positive outlook on life’s possibilities and higher expectations about what your future holds!
4) Moving Past Phobias
Phobias are often able to be addressed and treated with the use of hypnosis. As one addresses their ability to face their irrational fears through visualization and also pairing it with relaxation cues, the anxiety decreases. Once this happens, many find it easier to move past these events and overcome the associated phobias that are currently imposing limits on their life experiences.
5) Inducing Healthy Sleep
Sleep disorders are another common problem that people seek therapy for. Often, the cause of nighttime restlessness is a psychological condition that can be effectively treated with hypnotherapy. According to Certified Clinical Hypnotist, NLP Practitioner and Life Coach Matthew Fallon, C.Ht, at Attain Your Full Potential, invoking a meditative trance allows one to actively problem solve and address what is preventing deep sleep. Additionally, hypnosis provides a period of relaxation and resulting feelings of rejuvenation and restfulness that naturally lend to deep, healthy sleep.44
6) Anger Management
Anger is an emotion that we all experience, but it can lead to problems if it gets out of control. Sometimes individuals do not know how to control their anger and act inappropriately when they become angry, lashing out at loved ones or causing self-harm. These reactions often result from behaviors learned in childhood, or perhaps, they are related to a stressful event from the past. Hypnotherapy offers a very effective solution. While in a deep hypnotic state, clients are provided with suggestions to replace negative thought patterns and change hurtful behaviors so that they can manage anger and regain their ability to maintain healthier relationships.
7) Overcoming Anxiety and Depression
Anxiety and depression are conditions often triggered by physical, environmental, social, spiritual and emotional influences. While pharmaceutical medications are available to assist individuals faced with anxiety and depression, none are without risks or side effects or help individuals to deal with the root cause of their condition. Hypnotherapy, especially paired with cognitive behavioral therapy, is a natural alternative that helps to release stuck emotions and reverse negative thought patterns. After a few sessions, most clients benefit from reduced symptoms and a healthier outlook on life.
8) Physical Healing
While hypnotherapy sessions offer many emotional benefits, it is also worth noting how the induced state positively affect the physical body. Dealing with stuck emotions empowers you to make positive changes in every area of your life. From losing weight to alcohol addiction (for additional information on this type of work, refer to Hypnotherapy in Ireland with Larry McMahon), making healthier dietary choices or finding energy to exercise, hypnotherapy can have a profound impact on your ability to increase positive expectations and refocus your energy on the things that are truly important in life.
