Whatever your problem, you don't have to keep struggling on your own. I really encourage you to set aside any reservations you may have about hypnosis. With a little help, you can approach your problem in a new way and start experiencing real changes in your life.
Our subconscious has been looking out for us since the day we were born and, on the whole, has done a good job of keeping us alive and well. But like a well-meaning friend, sometimes it influences us to feel and behave in ways we would prefer not to. And life can be so complicated – things that we used to take in our stride seem more difficult; we don’t recover from set-backs like we used to; and sometimes it feels like nothing we try makes any difference.
Hypnotherapy helps the rational mind to exchange information with the subconscious mind and update ways of thinking and behaving which have accumulated over time. This is a completely natural process and something which we do already but hypnotherapy makes this flow of information much quicker and easier. By creating the right conditions, hypnotherapy can get you back on track, re-calibrating your thinking and, whatever your situation, giving you renewed enthusiasm to get the most out of life.
Hypnosis is nothing like you see on television. Hypnotherapy simply helps you to access your own inner resources to resolve your own problems and dilemmas. When people say that they will ‘sleep on a problem’ it is because they instinctively know that their subconscious mind will continue to work on the dilemma while they have effectively ‘switched off’ their conscious mind. Sure enough, the morning often brings new insight. But you don’t need to be asleep or even in a deep trance for this process to work, just open-minded enough to give it a try.
I consider myself a very logical person, with a previous career which spanned law and finance, yet I still found myself struggling with thoughts and feelings which bemused me and which I could not logically seem to be able to deal with. Experiencing and studying hypnotherapy was a revelation to me personally and, since then, nothing has brought me more pleasure and excitement than watching my clients experience breakthroughs in areas of their lives that they thought were too difficult for them to change.
