Everybody experiences highs and lows at some point in their lives. The majority of people manage their variations of mood with the support of family members and friends. But sometimes there are instances that professional help may be needed. This blog explores a number of situations where hypnotherapy may be able to help.
1. A problem that interferes with your daily life
A variety of issues including depression, substance abuse or bipolar disorder can affect your day-to-day life. They can hinder your ability to interact with your family, function at work and have a good night’s sleep. If these problems persist, you may want to consider seeking professional help. Hypnotherapy can help treat underlying causes of addictions, anxiety and depression.
2. You are unable to solve the problem by yourself
We develop coping systems throughout our lives to get through difficult times. But sometimes we encounter problems that don’t lend themselves to these coping mechanisms. This is where hypnotherapy may be able to help. You can discuss your goals, triggers and new thought patters that you can adopt instead. Just remember, hypnotherapy can help, but you will need to put a lot of effort in with your hypnotherapist to work through your problems.
3. Your emotional problems are causing physical symptoms
Sometimes people who suffer from emotional issues may visit their GP with physical complaints (fatigue, headaches or nausea). If your GP cannot find the physical cause, a consultation with a hypnotherapist may be beneficial. Through hypnosis, coaching and NLP, together you can try to discover the root cause of these problems.
4. You turn to alcohol or other substances to make it through the day
Using substances to navigate through life’s problems will only make them worse. A hypnotherapist who specialises in substance abuse and addiction may be able to help you with both your problem and your addiction. Hypnotherapy can be used in conjunction with groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous to great effect.
