We don’t consciously intend to create problems in our lives, but many times our subconscious patterns of thinking can make life more difficult. We often get in our own way.
Many people think that Hypnosis means giving up control, actually that is not true. Hypnosis is used for entertainment (Stage hypnosis) and it was historically used in occult rituals and that is why people may not know that Hypnosis is a bonafide intervention used for behavioral change. In the past Hypnosis was used for surgeries and it can still be used for surgical procedures where a person cannot take anesthesia. It can help with fears and phobias of all kinds. It can help with recovery after surgery and or chronic pain. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis and the Hypnotherapist is actually just facilitating the client to make the change they need to make.
Hypnotherapy can mean making a deeper change than using talk therapy alone, because it means changing the sub-conscious programs that lie beneath the surface. Hypnotherapy can mean a deeper level of emotional processing. The nice part is that people emerge feeling better right away, unlike talk therapy where the sessions can be quite tough emotionally.
It can help especially with anxiety related behavioral issues such as exam anxiety, math anxiety, financial worries, general anxiety and somatic stress related issues such as panic attacks, IBS, insomnia and public speaking. Hypnotherapy helps you take back control of your life from the problem that makes life harder.
“Hypnosis can be used to help you gain control over undesired behaviors or to help you cope better with anxiety or pain. Hypnosis that’s conducted by a trained therapist or health care professional is considered a safe, complementary and alternative medical treatment.” – MAYO CLINIC
