There are many reasons why people look to hypnotherapy. They may have heard success stories, seen it in the news or researched hypnotherapy online.
Here are three reasons why it may work for you:
It can be highly effective and transformative.
When we have a problem, most of us know what needs to be done to address the situation. For example, if we want to lose weight, we know that we need to cut down on the comfort eating, or when we want to quit smoking and live a healthier life, it should be as simple as not smoking, but it never is that easy.
Often the “I should” and “I shouldn’t” mantras you tell yourself can only take you so far. Your willpower weakens and however conscious you are of your choice, it can be difficult to follow your own rules. Hypnotherapy can help the mind confront this lack of willpower through engaging the subconscious.
It can be a quick treatment option.
A common question when considering hypnotherapy is, “How long will I spend in therapy?” However, no set answer can be given. Each person is different and the need for therapy will vary. That said, many talking therapies require regular meetings over the course of a year, whereas hypnotherapy may last for around four to six weekly sessions.
It is versatile and applicable to a range of ailments.
Common uses for hypnotherapy include weight-loss, smoking cessation and phobias, but it can also be effective in pre and post-childbirth and help to increase self-esteem. Hypnotherapy can help teach you how to relax and manage stress levels when under pressure or suffering from anxiety. It can also boost your confidence and improve communication skills.
Hypnotherapy can also be effective in treating insomnia. A therapist will target the cause of the issue, teaching you methods to calm and quiet your mind, helping you to rebalance your sleeping pattern.
