Weight Loss

How many times have you chosen one of the possible hundred diets? Then, finally after weeks or months of struggle you reached your goal and even lost five extra pounds. Unfortunately, later on, you find yourself you have gained all of that old weight back and sometimes even more. If this is a familiar tale for you, you might be a good candidate for hypnosis.

The loss of pounds is not permanent when you restrict foods from your body without considering the causes of overeating. Hypnotherapy will help you find the causes and reprogram your subconscious mind to create healthier and long lasting results.

Anxious Feelings/Emotional Strain

Along with causing physical strain, constant or frequent anxiety can also put you in a strained emotional state. The bodily energy required by the physical symptoms of anxiety, in combination with the persistent feelings of discontentment and worry, can make you feel drained and/or on edge. Hypnotherapy will help the client to move in a more positive frame of mind, altering unnecessary negative beliefs and implanting more helpful ones.

In addressing this symptom, a hypnotist may focus on implanting the belief that you feel happy, content, and confident in your ability to address and resolve the causes of your anxiety. In many cases it is your thoughts of potential danger, not the actual danger that produces the symptoms of anxiety and panic. These symptoms do not arise from actual dangerous or painful situations. Your mind has great impact and control over this phenomenon. Reprogramming you subconscious mind is a great way to change the way your body responds to seemingly frightening situations.

Pain Control

Management of pain problems remains one of the first and most enduring uses of hypnosis. The utility of hypnotic intervention in acute and chronic pain is now widely appreciated. Pain and suffering work together by are two different things. Some of the components of suffering are: non- acceptance, fear of the unknown, pessimism, feeling that suffering has no end, guilt and resentment. The removal of sufferings aids the alleviation of pain. Hypnosis can alleviate much otherwise unapproachable pain and can help maintain the functional ability and dignity of the client otherwise dependent on large quantities of medications.

Self Esteem

You begin forming your sense of self at very early age. By age two, you are able to differentiate yourself from others and you are aware of parents approve and disapprove of you. Unfortunately every negative attack is retained in your subconscious. Because subconscious memories and beliefs are difficult to influence with “logic” of your conscious mind, you need to learn the language of the subconscious, the language of images and suggestions. During hypnosis, you can communicate directly and effectively with your subconscious and begin to challenge some of your deeply held negative beliefs.

Healing the Adult Survivor of Child Abuse

There are three categories of abuse: physical, sexual and emotional. In many cases physical or sexual abuse is obvious and the trauma it causes is apparent. However, the grown victim often masks the memory of suffering by adopting defense mechanisms such us denial and amnesia. These childhood traumas are a great influence in our personality. If you suffer from low self esteem, lack of confidence, eating disorders, you feel fearful or choose abusive partners, you might have been a victim of child abuse. Often, especially when emotional abuse is involved, the damage can be cover and therefore go unrecognized as abuse. Hypnosis will to help you heal your inner child, raise your self-esteem, take away guilt, and improve your motivation.

Fears & Phobias

Hypnosis has been shown to be an effective treatment for many individuals with phobias. A significant percentage of the population suffers from a phobia of one type or another. For some individuals it can be mildly distressing but manageable.  For others it can be seriously debilitating. A phobia is an irrational fear of a particular stimulus. This stimulus can be a situation, a thing, or an activity.  People with phobias will either go to great lengths to avoid whatever it is they fear, or they will tolerate it with considerable anxiety. For some people, a phobia can trigger panic attacks. In severe cases the phobia can end up literally controlling a person’s life.

Hypnotherapy works by accessing the underlying cause of the phobia and eliminating the person’s conditioned response to the stimulus. When hypnosis is used to treat a phobia, the initial goal of the hypnotherapist is to discover the initial event from which the phobia developed. The cause is often a traumatic event which occurred at an earlier time in the person’s life. Often the phobic individual does not remember this event. It may be a memory which has been repressed for many years. Repression is a protective mechanism our mind utilizes by keeping memory of the trauma out of our conscious mind until we are ready and able to deal with it.

In order to access this memory, the individual will first need to be in an extremely relaxed state. The hypnotherapist will use techniques in order to help the person become very relaxed and focused. This state of heightened relaxation and focus is referred to as the hypnotic trance. It is during this state that the subconscious can be accessed. While in this trance state a person is very receptive to suggestion, which is what opens the door to bringing about the desired change.

Also, it is during this trance state that subconscious memories can be unlocked and brought to conscious awareness. The hypnotherapist does this by taking the person back to the place and time where the distressing event occurred. Addressing this old memory consciously will enable the individual to better understand it as well as begin to see it in a way which is no longer threatening. When this is achieved, the phobia will generally disappear.

Difficulty Sleeping

Many people with anxiety also have difficulty sleeping well. Getting to sleep in an anxious state and sleeping deeply when nightmares and muscle tension are keeping you awake can be nearly impossible. Hypnotists can assist with sleep deprivation by implanting positive suggestion that of relaxation and plenty of restful sleep. Alternatively, or in addition, they can help you to alter your anxious thought patterns so that they do not spiral out of control and keep you awake.
