If you've ever seen hypnotists in the movies or in pub shows you probably expect that Hypnotherapy will take control of your mind, leaving you barking like a dog or seeing leprechauns!!
Thankfully, in a holistic and healthcare setting Hypnotherapy offers treatments which help you to make positive changes to your perceptions, self-defeating behaviours and bad habits.
Hypnotherapy involves making helpful suggestions for relaxation, calmness and well-being, to your subconscious mind when you are in a deeply relaxed state. Remember that your subconscious mind controls 95% of our lives!!
Hypnotherapy can benefit your health and well-being in any number of ways.
Here are four common issues which Hypnotherapy can successfully help, there are many more:
1. Insomnia or Sleep Issues
Hypnotherapy can be a useful tool if you struggle getting to sleep or staying asleep throughout the night. If you suffer from Insomnia or Sleep Issues, Hypnotherapy can relax you to help you fall asleep more easily, and to stay asleep, so that you wake feeling refreshed and ready to face your day. Hypnotherapy may improve the amount of time spent in restorative, deep sleep by as much as 80%!
2. Anxiety and Stress
Relaxation techniques, especially Hypnotherapy, can be useful in helping to deal anxiety and stress. Hypnotherapy guides you into deep relaxation where helpful suggestions are made, personally tailored to your needs, to make it easier for you to cope with the anxieties and stresses that life throws at us, including workplace issues, relationship struggles, worries about the future and concerns around our post-Covid lives.
Hypnotherapy can also be tailored to a specific, one-off event, like a job interview, driving test or wedding speech.
3. Smoking Cessation
Stopping smoking isn't easy and whether you want to stop for health or financial reasons, Hypnotherapy is a successful alternative to nicotine replacement therapies and medication. Hypnotherapy can work in two ways: by finding a healthier alternative action and re-programming your subconscious mind towards this new habit i.e. chewing gum or having a quick walk; or by training your subconscious mind to associate smoking with undesirable feelings i.e. a disgusting taste or foul smell.
4. Weight Loss Management
Maintaining a healthy weight and removing the urge to comfort or over eat, especially at times of stress or anxiety, is often easier said than done. Hypnotherapy will help to identify and re-frame your unhelpful thoughts around food, helping you to gain control of your diet and weight. Hypnotherapy though is not a magic solution to weight loss and you will also have to commit to healthier eating and exercise, but the helpful suggestions made to your subconscious mind will help you think differently about food and your body image.
