It is sometimes difficult to be the person you truly want to be. It is a very true saying that we are the sum of our experiences - so if you have spent your life being pushed and pulled about by people in your life (overbearing parents or siblings, friends/ bullies, life partners, work colleagues) it is likely that you are not the person you truly want to be.
Do you worry about pleasing others all the time or meeting unrealistic targets? Are you constantly trying to conform? Do you regularly fail to live up to other people’s expectations?
Sometimes people treat you in a particular way because they genuinely believe they are acting in your best interest, whilst others will belittle you or be unkind to you for the sheer hell of it.
So if you are reading this now, is it possible that you have reached a point in your life where it is time to stand up for yourself, be confident and independent? If you have a friend or family member that you can trust to give you advice then why not confide in them? They may be able to help you develop some sort of action plan or timeline and support you through difficult choices.
At this point hypnotherapy would be a good investment of your time and money. A skilled hypnotherapist will enable you to work on self-esteem and self-confidence and will be able to teach you control strategies to moderate how you react to situations. You may be able to revisit past experiences; whilst you cannot change what happened in the past you may be able to get a different perspective on it or the people involved so that it no longer causes you pain.
If you are stuck in a rut at work and barely surviving because “any job is better than no job” and you can’t face the pressure of an interview, then this is also something that hypnotherapy can help. In the same way that a top athlete rehearses and visualises success, you can use hypnosis to guide you to success.
Remember that you can be anyone that you want to be…
