ANXIETY AND STRESS
Anxiety and stress affects many of us and can be a total beast. I have been there and understand how challenging and scary it is. It can deprive you of doing things that you used to love. It affects us emotionally and physically. Anxiety is caused by negative thinking. Hypnotherapy and Solution Focussed Brief Therapy can help you look at the world in a more positive way and help you find ways to resolve any anxieties or fears and help you move forward.
CONFIDENCE AND SELF ESTEEM
We all have times where we are lacking in confidence and self esteem. Lack of self-confidence is due to negatively forecasting the past or the future which leads to unwanted patterns of behaviour. Solution focused hypnotherapy can help with changing your way of thinking and in turn your sub-conscious will naturally become more positive and motivated.
This form of therapy is highly successful when related to exam nerves, public speaking, interviews and exams.
Depression is very common among people from all walks of life. It can leave us feeling sad, worthless, unmotivated, embarrassed and lonely. It impacts our physical health too.
Hypnotherapy can help by turning this negative cycle around by encouraging you to concentrate on gaining control of your thoughts and setting goals. It has a dramatically lower rate of relapse than with anti-depressants alone and is now considered the most effective treatment for depression.
FEARS AND PHOBIAS
Lots of people have phobias, whatever your phobia is, there is no need to feel judged or silly. When a fear or phobia starts to impact our lives negatively, it can really start to have a negative affect on us and the people around us. Phobias and fears are generally caused by a traumatic or upsetting event in early life.
Hypnotherapy can help by taking the emotion out of the past experience so you can disassociate it from the fear or phobia.
POLYCYSTIC OVARIAN SYNDROME
Also known as PCOS, it is very common and affects around 1 in 10 women and I am included in this statistic. The only way to successfully manage PCOS is to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Having low self esteem is a big part of PCOS. As suffers tend to struggle to lose weight, take hormone medication that can leave you feeling horrid and often see gynaecologists which can make you start to disconnect with your body. Hypnotherapy can help build up your confidence, self esteem, self worth, sleep, relaxation and to celebrate your body as it is.
The struggle to conceive can be so hard, I have been there and understand how it can impact every aspect of your life and your relationship with others. Hypnotherapy can increase the likelihood of conception by reducing stress alone or in conjunction with medical help. This is because stressful situations and stress hormones affect the hypothalamus, pituitary glands and reproductive organs.
Feeling consumed by trying to loose weight can be a huge burden that lowers our self esteem. A common cause of being overweight is an individual’s attitude towards food, developed during childhood and throughout life. Hypnotherapy can help change this by encouraging you to develop a healthier attitude towards food. Once the sub-conscious understands the purpose of food, losing weight and keeping it off will become much easier.
Trying to get to sleep after a long day or waking up during the night regularly can impact our physical and mental health. Approximately one in four people will suffer form insomnia at some point in their life. The most common cause of insomnia is anxiety or a change of circumstance in your life. Hypnotherapy can help reduce anxiety and encourage you to cope with life in a more positive and relaxing way, making insomnia a thing of the past.
