Hypnotherapy- a natural approach

KEY POINTS:

How the natural approach of hypnotherapy can:

  • Give you the motivation to get out more and explore the benefits of being in a natural environment.
  • Help you use all your senses to be in the moment.
  • Promote a good night’s sleep; an intrinsic part of good mental health.
  • Produce more feel good hormones; in healthy ways that reduce stress and help us feel more in control.
  • Encourage a relaxed state using hypnosis; through which we can turn off the fight, flight or freeze response and enjoy the many associated benefits.

Getting out more and being in nature

 

Research shows; there are far reaching benefits of connecting with nature.

Using evidence collected at the University of Washington; Professor Gregory Bratman cites:

‘…contact with nature is associated with increases in happiness, subjective well-being, positive affect, positive social interactions and a sense of meaning and purpose in life, as well as decreases in mental distress.’ (Science Advances, Vol.5, no. 7, 2019).

It could be our gardens, woodland, near water or in the mountains. Spending just half an hour in such an environment is effective. Even better; would be spending a few hours or a whole day. If you are experiencing anxiety, fatigue, depression, panic attacks or some other common issue, getting the motivation to do this can be challenging. This is where hypnotherapy can really help you.

Solution focused hypnotherapy

Solution focused hypnotherapy is a natural approach which encourages us to shift our thoughts away from focusing on what we perceive to be the problem and more towards the solution. This can help to kick start a new way of seeing things that creates a sense of hope and opportunity. We are then better equipped to overcome the stress response that can be triggered if we are thinking negatively for much of the time. Naturally choosing to engage in positive activities, like walking in nature, becomes easier because we are going to be much more focused on the associated positive gains. In time; these can effectively outweigh the perceived negatives.

By using our senses to explore the natural environment; such as pausing to smell the roses, listen to the birds and feel the grass beneath our feet; brings us into the present moment. We can then learn to quieten our minds if we are used to over-thinking and worrying about the past or the future.

Visualisation techniques used in hypnotherapy naturally support. Aspects of hypnosis, using natural imagery and positive suggestions can also create this response.

Sleep better

If we learn to focus more on the positives and potential solutions to our challenges; we reduce the negative thinking that can lead to anxiety, anger and depression. With practice, this becomes more habitual and our natural way of thinking.We are therefore in a much better position to manage challenging situations that invariably come our way, as we learn to navigate through difficult emotions and events.

Solution focused hypnotherapy encourages you to understand the processes involved that result in the stress response being triggered. We don’t have to contend with dangerous animals and tribesmen in modern day life. However, the primitive part of our mind that puts us into fight, flight of freeze mode can switch on even if our lives are not in immediate danger or crisis. Using hypnotherapy we can train our brains to maintain intellectual control when modern life becomes challenging. This natural approach puts in a better position to keep a good perspective and not give reign to unhelpful, negative thoughts.

This reduces the amount of stress in our lives. It is common for sleep problems to be stress related, so the impact of managing stress better can be huge in terms of sleeping better.

Increasing the release of feel good hormones

Through focusing on the positive aspects and taking a solution focused approach; we are encouraging increased production of the feel good hormones. These include serotonin, dopamine and oxytocin. In turn; this   motivates us to make good choices and carry them out; like developing good sleep routines, eating well, exercising more and being outdoors. All of these things contribute to good sleep.

When we feel happier and sleep better; our body’s natural healing processes can work more efficiently. Our brains can process events of the day during the REM or rapid eye movement phase of our sleep cycle. So anything that has upset us during the day isn’t carried into the next day. This natural process helps us to manage stress in the long term. Neuroscientist and sleep expert Professor Matt Walker describes this REM phase as ‘emotional first aid’.

The natural aspects of hypnosis

We actually go into a trance many times during the day. This commonly occurs when we are watching something light-hearted on TV, jogging, swimming, gardening or just staring out the window! Hypnosis is a very useful state to be in because we are focused on the positives, as we relax and have our goal in mind.  Entering into a state of hypnosis can help to calm down the stress response area of our brains.

This can be incredibly useful; especially if this red alert, hyper vigilant way of responding (even when there is no polar bear present; not even hiding around the corner) has been switched on for a long time. This makes it easier to consciously shift our thinking in positive ways. Because we are accessing the subconscious mind and getting it on board with creating a new perspective; it is better matched to a proper assessment of situations.

The exciting potentials within neuroplasticity

I am forever excited by neuroplasticity! In other words, this means we all have the potential to rewire our brains and change the way we think. All of us can therefore tap into this amazing ability. Because of this, we can take responsibility for our brains! Solution focused hypnotherapy can help us achieve this.

Hypnotherapy and weight management

Key points

  • How hypnotherapy can help with long term weight management
  • How stress can contribute to weight gain
  • Why it can be difficult to lose weight
  • How being overweight can impact on our health
  • Positive chemical responses in our bodies and how hypnotherapy can help produce more of them; in ways that support weight management

Managing weight in the long term

Many people I work with talk about their experience with weight loss. They have often been yo-yo dieters; successfully losing weight, only to put it all back on again. Hypnotherapy can help you break this cycle so you can gain control over your weight in the long term.

Key to achieving this, is to take a different perspective on the situation;  where it is less about food itself and more about our relationship with food. Reducing stress and focusing on all the positive aspects of our lives is also encouraged with solution focused hypnotherapy. This can help us feel happier and more in control.

Using hypnosis can help to access the subconscious mind and overcome unhelpful beliefs or behavioural responses, which may previously have prevented long term weight management. We can then focus more on how we would like to respond to food and eating.

Stress and weight gain

Dieting and restraining what we eat can be stressful in itself! When we experience prolonged stress, we produce an excess of the stress hormone cortisol.  In turn, this increases our appetite. Modern day life is often sedentary and we are burning fewer calories than our more active ancestors.  If we are eating more; it doesn’t take long to start putting on weight.

How excess cortisol levels can make it harder to lose weight

Fat stored in the abdominal area contains cortisol receptors, which produce yet more cortisol. So you can see how carrying excess weight in this area can put us into a vicious cycle of wanting to eat more. This can often take the form of ‘comfort eating’, where we crave fatty,  sugary foods.  If we have high levels of cortisol in our bodies it can also affect how we handle stress.

Because cortisol levels are not capped at a manageable level, we can over-react to what we perceive to be stressful. This can make us feel threatened and put us into red-alert flight/fight mode. When our cortisol levels are within normal range, we can feel challenged by stressful events. However, we can be confident about dealing with these challenges. In this way, we are managing stress and can feel more in control.

The good news is; that by reducing our weight in the abdominal region, we reduce our cortisol levels. As we become lighter, it becomes easier to be mobile and exercise. This helps produce the feel good hormone serotonin, which also helps reduce cortisol levels.

The health benefits of maintaining our optimum weight

Evidence shows that excess cortisol can impact on our immune system. It can increase our risk of developing chronic conditions such as heart disease. Excessive cortisol levels can also disrupt our metabolism. The list goes on. So the benefits of reducing our cortisol levels, which are often higher when we are overweight; could prevent numerous potential health conditions.

Unexpected life changes

More often than not, when clients go on to lose weight and then manage their weight, their lives take off and they find themselves doing things they had never believed possible. One client went on to become more active and ended up cycling all round the world. Another gained the confidence to start dating and branching out socially.

The benefits of the feel good hormone serotonin

These positive actions generate the feel good hormone serotonin, which helps us feel motivated and positively impacts on our mood, sleep, digestion and many other bodily functions. When our body weight comes into balance, there are many hidden advantages happening internally. Our hormones can come more into balance, helping to effectively regulate hunger and feelings of satiety. Our metabolism can work more effectively too.

All this helps us to regulate our eating and develop confidence in our ability to do this in the long term.

The reward hormone dopamine

As we feel calmer and more in control, we can take life’s challenges more in our stride and effectively manage our stress levels.

When we are happier, we are also generating the reward hormone dopamine. This could be through positive activities such as going to the gym, meeting up with friends or walking the dog. As a consequence, the emphasis is taken away from rewarding ourselves through food. Hypnotherapy can help us to focus less on what we perceive to be the problem and more on the wider picture. It then becomes easier to generate dopamine and get that sense of reward and satisfaction through pleasurable activities beyond eating.

The exciting potentials within neuroplasticity

I am forever excited by neuroplasticity! In other words, this means we all have the potential to rewire our brains and change the way we think. All of us can therefore tap into this amazing ability. Because of this, we can take responsibility for our brains! Solution focused hypnotherapy can help us achieve this.

Hypnotherapy for sports performance

Self-discipline

We all need discipline to help us stay on track and achieve our goals. your goal may be based on sports performance. I remember when I represented my school in the relay race. The four of us trained weekly. Not only were we perfecting our physical performance; we were also focusing our minds on successfully working as a team and achieving our best. There was no room for doubt or negative self-talk.

Although I didn’t realise it at the time; I was using my imagination and creating positive mental images. As a result; these helped me to keep my mind focused on successful outcomes. This was helping me combat my nerves in readiness for sports performance.

The power of positive mental rehearsal

Scientific research shows us that mental rehearsal and visualisation can affect the chemical responses in our bodies; helping us to produce the feel good hormone serotonin. This drives us to succeed. Added to the positive chemical mix of neurotransmitters are dopamine and endorphins, giving us a big energy boost and enabling us to push ourselves further on a physical level.

In turn, we are also building and strengthening very useful neural pathways. These help pave the way to success; as we actively practice what we need to do to achieve this. Muscle memory can also become more ingrained through repetition and the perfection of certain moves. Because we are also developing the skills needed to stay positively focused; less helpful neural circuits that generate unwanted responses such as self-doubt, can more easily be controlled.

Positivity and self-empowerment

As a solution focused hypnotherapist, pro-action and positivity are key components of the therapeutic process. These skills are also required for peak physical performance in whatever sport we choose. Solution focused hypnotherapy can be very effective for emotional regulation. In a pressurised situation; for example serving at match point in tennis, keeping your cool is essential. Possessing the ability to stay in control is the mark of a champion.

Visualisation can be a powerful tool

By delving into our tool kit of inner resources; we can feel more in control of our thoughts and emotions. Therefore, we are able to keep a mindful focus on the present. This creates a useful space to concentrate on a preferred future. This process that can be enhanced through visualisation. Such heightened focus can help to produce strong and enduring ways of thinking and intensify the expectation of attaining success.

Successful sports personalities

Often referred to as the greatest heavyweight boxer of all time, Muhammad Ali is a significant and widely celebrated sports figure of the twentieth century. Behind the scenes, he was successfully using visualisation to focus on how he would fight his opponent, rehearsing every detail; move by move and through each round of the match. When he was confident he could defeat his opponent, he would announce this to the World in a press statement, even stating the specific details of how he would do it. When matched with his skills and talent, his desired outcomes invariably came true. Visualisation can add real power to the realisation of our goals, whatever they might be.

In the Melbourne Olympics of 1956, accompanying the Russian team were several hypnotherapists to help with the process of visualisation to help the athletes create images of the exact movements they wanted to achieve.

Our subconscious may be hindering our sports performance. Hypnosis helps to lock these actions in to our minds on a subconscious level. Having the confidence to then trust that the subconscious mind knows what to do and has done this many times over can help with the ability to enter into the flow of sporting excellence. By reducing anxiety and increasing positivity, we can challenge and override any negative thoughts such as negatively forecasting or overthinking. We can still remain in intellectual control, whilst trusting the subconscious to get on with it.

We can train our brain

Positive mental rehearsal is intrinsic in solution focused therapy, as well as the ability to be calm and mindfully aware in the present. Research carried out on Buddhist monks using brain scanning equipment, shows that meditation alters activity in the brain.

This mental training produces enduring changes in the brain. It’s amazing and potentially a life changer, or in the world of sport, a game changer to think that a positive mental state is a skill that can be trained. Just as we train our bodies, so we can get our minds on board and train them to perform well in sporting contexts and potentially in all areas of our lives, or whatever we bring our minds to bear upon.

The exciting potentials within neuroplasticity

I am forever excited by neuroplasticity! This means our brains have the potential to change. There is the capacity for areas and circuits in our brains to rewire in ways that can enhance the way we think and therefore function in our lives. This can also include sports performance. We can take responsibility for the thoughts we create and adopt new ones because we know that neurons that fire together wire together and we can therefore create new neural pathways that better serve us. We can all tap into this amazing ability and take responsibility for our brains!

Fertility- how hypnosis helped me

After struggling to get pregnant, I was then told having a baby was not a guarantee

After wondering why I wasn’t getting pregnant, I received the news that this could be a challenge. I was devastated. Like many women, I just assumed it would be easy and natural. My biggest conundrum had been mulling over how many children to have; whether they would be girls or boys.

Challenging times on my IVF journey

I eventually came to terms with my predicament and decided to start IVF (in vitro fertilisation) treatment. This took time and came with many stresses and demands. Hanging over all our emotional, physical and financial investment, was the higher than 50% likelihood that it wouldn’t work.

This was impacting on my mental health. I recognised that I was feeling increasingly despondent and anxious. Living in the leafy suburbs of Washington DC; there were constant reminders around me of women with babies.

Having worked as a primary school teacher, I was very attuned to the world of young children and the notion that I might not have my own child seemed like a cruel twist of fate. At times I felt angry, frustrated, and powerless.

Time to take more positive action!

In a bid to do something positive and get a sense of control back, I explored alternative therapies and went on to study Holistic Health at The Washington Institute of Natural Medicine.

I practised meditation techniques which I found incredibly beneficial and studied with some very interesting and upbeat Americans. The positive interaction was doing me the world of good and I was learning to feel calmer and more at peace in my own space at home. Studying kept my mind focused and gave me a sense of achievement as I completed my modules.

I was changing my brain chemistry and feeling so much better

As a practising hypnotherapist, I now know I was generating a healthy flow of the feel good hormones serotonin, oxytocin and serotonin. I was helping myself in a big way. The knock on effect meant I was spending less time in the fight/flight part of my brain which could be very unruly, running away with worrying thoughts like ‘what if I never get pregnant- how can I be truly  happy?’

I was successfully bypassing the painful emotions that would accompany these thoughts and instead; spending more time generating positive thoughts in the sensible, flexible, intellectual part of my brain.

Hypnobirthing and self-hypnosis

The results were subtle but powerful; I found myself looking into Hypnobirthing as I had read so many positive reviews and purchased some relaxation CDs focusing on a joyful pregnancy and birth. I was actually learning self-hypnosis, which can be very effective for getting the subconscious on board with what we want to achieve on a conscious level. This can be very powerful.

A successful pregnancy first time around

I went on to become pregnant after that first round of IVF. Studies show that women, when treated for depression increase their rate of achieving a viable pregnancy by 60%. Those left untreated achieved only a 24% rate.

Reducing my stress levels was beneficial for  fertility 

By taking action to reduce my stress levels, I was also achieving a healthy fertile state on a physical level. Prolonged periods of anxiety and stress can affect production of the hormones needed for ovulation, implantation and also sperm quality.

The stress hormone adrenaline can inhibit the production of progesterone, which builds and maintains the uterus lining. When women experience stress it can trigger higher levels of prolactin. This is produced naturally when breast feeding to prevent pregnancy at a time when her energies are needed for her baby. This can affect fertility levels when we actively want to conceive.

Getting myself into a good state of balance on every level

Being switched onto flight/fight mode for long periods can result in the sympathetic system becoming hyper-stimulated. This, in turn, reduces blood flow to the uterus and ovaries. Our bodies become more geared to escape danger, when we experience threat or stress, and so nurturing a foetus and caring for a baby could, from the perspective of the primitive mind, hinder survival.

How hypnotherapy can help

So the benefits of reducing stress were enormous, bringing my body, mind and feelings into a state of greater balance. As a clinical hypnotherapist, I now work with women who are looking to achieve this, either as part of their goal to achieve a viable pregnancy, or to feel calmer and more confident about giving birth.

A natural birth using the skills I had learnt

The double positive was that I also successfully achieved a natural and joyful birth. I had the confidence to fully embrace the birthing journey, again, not allowing my mind to run away with negative thoughts, and instead bringing my attention to feeling calm and trusting in my body’s natural abilities.

Having an incredibly supportive and encouraging midwife by my side was also a big bonus! My daughter’s heart beat remained calm throughout the birth and she is now blossoming as an individual on her own journey through adolescence.

If you are struggling with fertility, hypnotherapy can help

Maybe you have also been thrown a curve ball in relation to fertility and need to reset your thinking about the options available to you. Or you might be experiencing stress and anxiety around the challenges fertility issues can bring. I am happy to have a chat with you about how hypnotherapy can help. You can also book an initial consultation with me, to find out more.

Take positive steps, now, to feel calmer, happier and more in control.

Is anxiety hijacking your happiness? Take the control back.

When does anxiety become a problem?

It is natural to feel anxious at times; maybe you have a talk to deliver, have a difficult meeting coming up or you are about to take your driving test. It can even be as a result of exciting, big events like getting married. However, do you feel like your anxiety is pervasive and won’t go away? Maybe you have been feeling anxious for weeks, months, even years. It may have been building up gradually, like a dripping tap in the background. So if something negative or unexpected happens it can feel like it’s the last straw. Daily life, with its usual ups and downs, could then become a struggle.

How solution focused hypnotherapy can help reduce anxiety

Taking steps to get support can help you break the vicious cycle of worrying and negative thinking. Solution focused hypnotherapy looks at how we create anxiety, how it affects us and what we can do about it.

Through the advances of neuroscience, we can see what is going on in our brains when we experience anxiety.

Break unhelpful thought patterns

Hypnotherapy can help you break the thinking patterns that create anxious feelings and put new ones in their place. You are encouraged to build confidence in your ability to change the way you think and focus more on the positive aspects of your life.

Through hypnosis you can experience a deep level of relaxation, whilst focusing on what you would like to achieve. This can be a very powerful tool to help you feel calm and confident so you are ready to make positive changes. Being in a trance state/hypnosis is completely natural and you are always in control of your own mind.

Common symptoms which indicate you are overly anxious

When we experience high levels of anxiety we are on red alert mode, scanning for danger and preparing ourselves to fight, flee or freeze.

Physical symptoms can include:

  • Fatigue
  • Muscle aches and tension
  • Tight feeling in the chest
  • Shortness of breath
  • Stomach ache and digestive issues
  • Sickness
  • Headache
  • Changes in your heartbeat or increased heart rate
  • Dizziness
  • Trembling or shaking
  • Trouble sleeping

Other symptoms:

  • Difficulty concentrating and remembering things
  • Feelings of dread and depressive thoughts
  • Feelings of panic
  • Excessive worrying
  • Overthinking
  • Feeling on edge and hypervigilant
  • Inability to switch off and relax

Heightened anxiety and fear responses

You may have anxiety around something specific such as an intense fear of spiders or heights. When it is extreme this can impact on your life and stop you doing the things you need to do or want to do. Hypnotherapy can be very effective for helping you overcome fears and phobias. You may be experiencing anxiety around past events and trauma and this could be holding you back.

Adopting new and more helpful ways of thinking

Solution focused hypnotherapy can help you process these events so they are no longer producing an emotional response, putting you back in control and able to respond differently. You are encouraged to look at where you are now and moving forward, where there is no need to delve into the past. Neuroscience shows that our brains have plasticity and we can effectively rewire the way we think. We all have the potential to adopt new ways of thinking, and as we do this more and more, we are strengthening new neural pathways. So many clients have commented that the things that used to make them anxious are just not in their thoughts any more.

Take positive steps, now, to feel calmer, happier and more in control.

Not enough time. Can we learn to live more in the moment?

What if we had plenty of time

To keep myself in tip-top form, I regularly participate in reciprocal hypnotherapy. When I had my session this morning, I explored many positive aspects of my life. I then set myself the goal of managing my time better and making my time a richer experience.

There are several definitions for the word ‘rich’. The one that most closely matches my goal is where I would experience time as plentiful and abundant. How many of us have said to ourselves if only I had more time. The mind boggles. I could finally finish decorating the bathroom, spend more time with friends, sign up for art classes!

Get into the driving seat and steer your thoughts

Our brain doesn’t know the difference between imagination and reality. Because of this, this thought is creating an enjoyable sensation of motivation and excitement. I am exploring the potential that we all have to shake ourselves out of old, habitual ways of thinking and adopt a new perspective.

As you read this, you may be thinking, don’t be daft there aren’t enough hours in the day. The funny thing is, when I slow down, time seems to expand. I begin to relax and feel more in the moment.

So much to do

I have just moved house and I am in the process of planning my wedding. This is in addition to keeping all the other aspects of my life ticking over. Before I went into my hypnotherapy session, I realised that my stress levels had gone up. I was tipping into overwhelm and trying to do too much at once. I felt like I was running out of time and began to panic. My usual sense of inner calm was slipping away.

Focus on the positives

Luckily, as I got into the swing of solution focused hypnotherapy, my mind began to focus on more productive ways of thinking. I was in the right frame of mid to appreciate what I was doing well. As I did so, could feel my confidence and energy go up. After experiencing hypnosis, I was ready to get on with my day and enjoy it.

And breathe…enjoy the moment

That hourly session was definitely a rich experience. It also had a positive affect on the hours that followed, in that I remained relaxed and highly productive. Taking my tea break in the garden, savouring the cheese and pickle sandwich I ate at lunchtime, sharing my bumper crop of pears with neighbours, all helped to enrich my day.

I realised that I did have time. And it’s interesting that I got more of my ‘to do’ list ticked off when I wasn’t sweating the small stuff. I had been so busy trying to tackle everything at once and this was not good for my emotional and physical state. When we feel under threat, anxiety can kick in; raising our cortisol and adrenaline levels. This can make us feel hyper vigilant and on edge.

Time can be golden

So, yes, I think we can explore a new take on our relationship with time and consciously slow it down. We can stand back and observe. Put things in a wider perspective. I know that when I take even a few seconds to appreciate what I do have, it can transform the way I think, feel and behave. How we choose to use time can be worth its weight in gold because we are investing in our wellbeing and future.

The exciting potentials within neuroplasticity

I am forever excited by neuroplasticity! In other words, this means we all have the potential to rewire our brains and change the way we think. All of us can therefore tap into this amazing ability. Because of this, we can take responsibility for our brains! Solution focused hypnotherapy can help us achieve this.

Take positive steps, now, to feel calmer, happier and more in control.

Being joyful- a shout out to your playful side

Play matters

Ralph Waldo Emerson cited that:

‘It is a happy talent to know how to play.’

Is the ability to play something we can develop as an adult? I believe it is. Hypnotherapy can help us access our playful side.

Someone recently reminded me about the importance of having fun. I remember bright, fun-filled days as a child, which seemed to go on forever. Playfulness is something humans are designed for. If we can recreate this sense of joy as adults, it can really enrich our lives and guard against stress overload.

Coming out of lockdown

As we come out of lockdown, I have been thinking about the positives I have gained from this experience. Restrictions on where I can go and what I can do have steered me to appreciate the little things.

I know that, each day, I can invariably find something to feel glad about. Just watching the leaves and flowers growing these last few weeks has been pretty amazing. I have also discovered many things on my doorstep that I never noticed before. Playing with my cat has been a highlight too.

How can hypnotherapy help us embrace being playful?

I was speaking to a client today about tanking up on those moments of contentment and peace; really embracing the positive aspects to be found in our lives. That is; if we care to notice them. Too often, we can be scanning for potential threats and danger and focusing on what we perceive to be wrong. Sometimes, we can even extend this to ourselves and overlook our strengths and abilities.

A solution focused approach

Drawing on elements of cognitive behavioural therapy and neuro-linguistic programming, solution focused hypnotherapy can help you become more aware of your thought patterns and change them if needed. This approach encourages you to discover your inner resources and find solutions to your challenges. The added advantage is that it also incorporates hypnosis. This element can help to lock in changes on a subconscious level. It is also a very enjoyable state of relaxation to be in, where both your mind and body really can relax and let go.

When I played as a child, I know I was carefree and fully immersed in the moment. I was also very focused on what I was doing. Hypnosis is similar, where we are relaxed and focused at the same time.

The power of hypnosis in my life

Hypnosis was a revelation to me. As I practised self-hypnosis, I found it easier to achieve a state of deep relaxation. I was also focussing on using my mind in positive ways, which was something I had struggled with when I was overly worrying about many aspects of my life.

As a hypnotherapist I feel uplifted after each hypnotherapy session because it is solution focused and geared towards making beneficial changes.

By also focusing my mind on the positive aspects and creative, problem solving ways of thinking, I was able to find solutions and breakthroughs that had alluded me before. These skills are called upon when we play, especially when there are no rules and we need to think on our feet and be creative.

What happens in our brains when we play?

In Psychology Today Rob Parr explores why having fun is not taken more seriously in our society:

https://www.psychologytoday.com/gb/blog/animal-emotions/201405/the-importance-play-having-fun-must-be-taken-seriously

The same article looks at research which shows how play benefits the prefrontal cortex. Play is described as a ‘banquet for the brain’: a great way of summing up what a rich and nourishing experience play can be. Using this area of the brain, especially the left prefrontal cortex, is encouraged through hypnotherapy.

Changing our perspective

This is where we can be confident and open to changing our perspective on things. New thoughts can lead to new actions, just as Einstein famously quoted:

‘No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.’

This makes sense. Hypnotherapy can help you change the way you think, the way you feel and the way you respond to situations. It can also increase our motivation and capacity to be playful.

A more positive mindset

As clients progress, I find their use of language often changes as a result. Words and phrases like ‘happier, having fun, being present, smiling, laughing, playing with my children more’ start to pop up. They are able to envisage and then take steps towards increasing joy in their lives. This is often very different from earlier sessions, where negative language was used more habitually.

Modern day life

With the stresses of modern day life, it can be easy to overlook  our playful fun-loving side. This can result in us feeling fed up, flat or uninspired. Perhaps anxious thoughts are stealing away your happiness. Hypnotherapy can help you overcome anxiety and feel happier.

The exciting potentials within neuroplasticity

I am forever excited by neuroplasticity! In other words, this means we all have the potential to rewire our brains and change the way we think. All of us can therefore tap into this amazing ability. Because of this, we can take responsibility for our brains! Solution focused hypnotherapy can help us achieve this.

Coping well with change. Can hypnotherapy help?

Change is inevitable

Hypnotherapy can help you feel calmer and more focussed so that you can respond well to change. Change is to be expected in our lives and it can be incredibly useful to build confidence in our ability to cope. This is even more crucial when challenges seem to come all at once, as I experienced in my own life.

6 Tips to help you see a brighter future

1. Envisage future possibilities and take positive action

I can’t help but smile when I hear Timbuk 3’s pop song ‘The Future’s So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades’. I don’t know if I would go that far but I am really enjoying longer daylight hours.

These past few days I have been spring cleaning my mind; letting go of old ways of thinking and making space for the new. I want to get excited about the future! A key part of achieving this is to actively take steps to make it happen.

2. Get motivated and create opportunities

So what do you do if you are really struggling right now and taking those initial steps is proving difficult?

As we continue to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, it is good to raise awareness about the impact this might be having an impact on our mental health and wellbeing.

Perhaps you are a student or your child is currently struggling at University. This month celebrates University Mental Health Day: https://www.unimentalhealthday.co.uk/ Social interaction with fellow students is an incredibly enriching and important aspect of University life, making lockdowns especially challenging. This can apply to all of us.

Look at what you can do

Loneliness can lead to depression, disrupted sleep and even impact on our immune system. Not helpful if we are looking to feel more optimistic about the future and ready to embrace or create opportunities. Milton Berle states this in his well-known quote:

‘If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.’

Exploring our options

So when the going gets tough for all of us, creating opportunities or making the most of what we can do, is crucial. Many people have made the most of the internet to stay connected. Others are chatting safely over hedges in their gardens. Being resourceful and creating opportunities, against the odds, can ignite hope and motivate us to keep taking positive action. Being innovative in our approach can give us a satisfying sense of doing things in our own unique way.

3. Get creative

In his internationally acclaimed TED talk, Creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson talks about the value of creativity within education. He also reminds us that unpredictability is an inherent part of  the future.

https://www.ted.com/talks/sir_ken_robinson_do_schools_kill_creativity?language=en

We have all been living with uncertainty this past year or so. This can alert our primitive, emotional brain and put us on edge; ready to fight, flee or freeze if necessary. Ken Robinson talks about getting in touch with our authentic selves and being resourceful and creative in the way we approach life. A client recently said to me:

‘I finally feel like I am in touch with my real self!’. She was so excited by this revelation.

4. Positively change the way you think

Solution focused hypnotherapy encourages us to focus more on flexible ways of thinking. This can help us build self-belief and confidence as we become more open to doing things differently.

Our primitive, emotional mind

In addition, this can move us out of our primitive mind where the fight/flight amygdala region of our thinking can take over. Yes, of course we will run away if a polar bear is coming towards us. But being on red alert, just in case danger is lurking, is unhelpful. Anxiety, depression and anger are created by negative thinking, where we are more likely to focus on the worst case scenarios.

Our intellectual, sensible mind

Unless there is a polar bear standing in front of us; it is far more useful to be in the intellectual, sensible part of our brains. When this becomes more our usual way of thinking it can help us to feel confident in our ability to make good judgements and respond well in all situations. Tapping into our creativity, flexibility and ability to come up with solutions also helps us to deal with the unexpected.

So thinking more positively and tanking up on resilience is really worthwhile during times of increased change and unpredictability.

5. Focus on what you can do now

Using hypnotherapy, I have supported many people as they find ways to overcome stress and anxiety. They are then able to feel calmer, tap into their inner resources and find solutions to problems.

Serotonin

Maintaining positive interactions with others can help significantly towards generating the feel good hormone serotonin and motivate us to do more of what we know is good for us.

I have seen even the most technologically averse get outside their comfort zone and now regularly interact through video calls. Other clients are feeling more connected to people in their communities by greeting them on their daily walk. The focus is on what we can do and reaping the benefits in the present, which puts us in a better position to handle the future.

‘The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today.’  H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

6. Believe in yourself and aim high

As a species, humans have had to learn how to adapt to survive and evolve. Where hypnotherapy can help is, not just with surviving and getting by, but also with the idea we can thrive.

Stimulating motivation, thinking creatively and actively taking steps to make things happen are powerful catalysts for beneficial change. Hypnotherapy can help you stay calm, focused and on track. in this way, we can move towards our truly authentic and best self.

A bright future

If you would like to learn more about how hypnotherapy can help you feel confident and enjoy life, give me a call or drop me an email. Take that first positive step and have your shades to hand, just in case it gets so bright! After all:

‘Do not let the memories of your past limit the potential of your future. There are no limits to what you can            achieve on your journey through life, except in your mind.’   Roy T. Bennett

Hypnotherapy has changed my life for the better and I am now doing things I never thought possible.

The exciting potentials within neuroplasticity

As a solution focused hypnotherapist, I draw on neuroscience. In terms of our potential to change the way we think; neuroplasticity is key. Because it shows us we can all rewire areas and circuits in our brains. We can therefore change our neural pathways; in other words, the way we think.

Shining a light on hope

Would you like to feel more hopeful?

Having hope makes us feel good and, fortunately, we can create more of it. Would you like to have more of these qualities? :

Happiness         Optimism            Proaction           Enthusiasm

Life’s challenges

The covid pandemic and the uncertainty surrounding it can put us into fight/flight mode. It may be other challenges that create uncertainty, such as redundancy or divorce. Being in survival mode can lead to us expecting the worst and consequently rob us of hope.

When we are on red alert survival mode for long periods of time, it can take its toll on our mental, emotional and physical health. As a result, you may find that you are experiencing symptoms of stress and anxiety for the first time, such as panic attacks or sleep issues. Drinking too much alcohol or overeating are behaviours that might develop as unhelpful coping mechanisms.

Change the way you think

A simple concept:

“Stop worrying about what can go wrong, and get excited about what can go right”. Anonymous

Having hope is commonly understood as exercising a positive attitude and following the belief that positive outcomes can be achieved.

Hypnotherapy can help us feel more optimistic

As a solution focused hypnotherapist, I draw on neuroscience which shows we can rewire our brains and change the way we think. If hope is an optimistic state of mind, then we all have the potential to develop this further. Optimism brings about the expectation of positive outcomes.

We may not be in control of aspects of the pandemic or its outcome, but we can change our thoughts in response to it. I recently read that some people have found wearing a face mask beneficial. As a consequence, they felt more emotionally self-contained and secure out in the world. Some of us may find wearing a mask challenging. Therefore, it is not the circumstances in our lives that create anxiety, but rather our thought patterns around them.

Hypnotherapy can help you change your thought patterns in response to the events in your life. The upshot of this is that it can make you feel more in control and optimistic.

Feel more in control

One client had become trapped in a vicious cycle of excessive worry and always assuming the worst. Her negative outlook had overshadowed her ability to be hopeful about the future. In addition, she had lost confidence in her ability to adapt and deal with change and uncertainty.

Using hypnotherapy, she successfully decreased her stress levels and gained more control over her thought processes. This subsequently created a powerful shift of perspective. She went on to successfully overcome a negative thought pattern that had been there for many years.

Rekindle hope

By taking a more realistic, solution focused view of things, this client was able to rekindle hope and the positive expectation that she could achieve her goals. Because she was also becoming more aware of the positive aspects of her life, this helped her feel happier and more motivated.

Psychology Today writer Scott Barry Kaufman explores hope as a ‘dynamic cognitive motivational system’, dispelling the myth that sometimes portrays hope as a vague emotion that lacks real clout:

https://www.psychologytoday.com/gb/blog/beautiful-minds/201112/the-will-and-ways-hope#:~:text=According%20to%20their%20theory%2C%20hope,different%20ways%20to%20get%20there.

The benefits of being solution focused

This idea fits in very well with the solution focused model of hypnotherapy I practice, which encourages the client to be proactive and fully engaged in the therapeutic process. Changing the way we think leads to changes in the way we feel and behave. Positive thoughts, positive actions and positive interactions enable hope to manifest itself in our lives.

Feel good hormones

The wonderful cocktail of feel-good hormones that kick in when we achieve something  positive then drives us to want to do more. Serotonin is the number one neurotransmitter for helping us feel motivated and confident in our abilities to cope well, whatever life throws at us.

Dopamine and the ‘cuddle hormone’ oxytocin also contribute to this when we complete tasks and form meaningful and supportive connections with others. Success breeds more success and what we focus on increases; well- known sayings that resonate when we are embodying positive thoughts and actions fuelled by hope. In this way, we are encouraged to be more proactive. As new thought processes become more ingrained, adopting a more optimistic and hopeful outlook can feel more natural and we can begin to really embody these qualities:

“The very least you can do in your life is figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof.” Barbara Kingsolver

Hypnotherapy for heartbreak and loss

Are you finding it difficult to move on?

Spring brings growth and can symbolise hope. However, you may be feeling stuck in the past and unable to move on. This can make it difficult to envisage a bright future.

Having experienced a separation, I know how difficult it can feel to move on. It is possible to take steps to make the process of  divorce or separation easier.

How can hypnotherapy help?

Hypnotherapy can help you reduce your stress levels and feel calmer as you deal with major change. As a solution focused hypnotherapist, I offer a therapy that incorporates deep relaxation techniques, positive visualisation and a focus on finding solutions. This may involve viewing things from a different perspective so that some positives can be taken from negative experiences.

Seeing the positives 

Rather than focusing on your sense of loss, you might choose to consider what you have  gained; for example:

  • Learning from the experience and using this knowledge to have a clearer idea of a more suitable partner in the future.
  • Building resilience and the ability to deal with change.
  • Seeing opportunities in your new single status such as doing more of the things you enjoy, but may be didn’t get round to doing when you were in a relationship.
  • Devoting more time to yourself and maybe discover new things about yourself.
  • Taking time to identify personal goals and work towards them.

More about solution focused hypnotherapy

Solution focused hypnotherapy doesn’t involve delving into the past. The onus is therefore on where you are now in your life and moving forward. In line with this approach you are encouraged you to get on and take positive action towards achieving your goals. You can discover the tools to walk the talk and really make changes.

Although we can’t control everything in our lives; we do have control over how we respond to life’s challenges. Hypnotherapy helps you shift your perspective so that you become more aware of the positive aspects of living and can give you the confidence to see and embrace new opportunities. The result of this means you can begin to feel happier.

How does hypnosis work?

The hypnosis element of hypnotherapy encourages a deeply relaxed state of awareness where you can access your subconscious mind. This makes it easier to break down unhelpful thought patterns and replace them with thoughts that are realistic and beneficial.

Neuroplasticity

Your brain is plastic so new neural patterns can grow as you prune out the ‘weeds’ (unhelpful ways of thinking) and make space for healthy growth (helpful ways of thinking). Because hypnotherapy uses  metaphor and positive suggestion, this can help engage your flexible, intellectual mind and motivate you towards making positive changes. Clients often attest to how motivated and uplifted they feel after their sessions.

Hypnotherapy for bereavement

Heartbreak can be the result of loss and bereavement. You can take positive steps to make the bereavement journey more manageable and help you attain a hopeful perspective so you can move forward. Hypnotherapy can help you find the tools and inner resources to do this; step by step.

Prioritise your wellbeing. You deserve it.

Are you dealing with chronic pain?

What is chronic pain?

Chronic pain  can be defined as pain which is constant and lasts for longer than twelve weeks. Or it may be continuing beyond the expected healing period, for example: following  surgery or trauma.

Issues associated with chronic pain

Having experienced chronic pain, I am fully aware of the impact it can have on our ability to cope. Because chronic pain can cause disrupted sleep or insomnia; mental and physical exhaustion can take hold. When sleep is impaired for a long period of time, it may increase anxiety and lead to depression. In addition, side effects from taking pain killers can make these symptoms worse or create new ones like dizziness or digestive issues.

Taking an alternative approach

Many people I work with want to take matters more into their own hands. They have often explored alternative health as a way to manage pain better and, ultimately, feel more in control. Studies show how hypnotherapy can be an effective way of  alleviating pain and the emotional distress that is often associated with it:

“…findings indicate that hypnosis interventions consistently produce significant decreases in pain associated with a variety of chronic-pain problems. Also, hypnosis was generally found to be more effective than non-hypnotic interventions such as attention, physical therapy, and education.”

Gary Elkins et al. University of Washington School of Medicine, Seattle, Washington. 2009.

Hypnosis can help you reduce and manage pain

Hypnotherapy incorporates visualisation techniques and metaphor to focus your thinking on what you would like to achieve. Deep relaxation can be achieved through hypnosis, which can make you more receptive to positive suggestions and  positive visualisation.

Change the way you think

When we experience hypnosis we can access the subconscious mind. This can help us to overcome negative thinking. As an example; this might be based on expecting the worst: ‘I’ll never be free of this pain’. Using a positive focus, you may choose to replace this thought with a new one like ‘I can handle this and look forward to doing more’. You can then begin to focus on what you need to do to feel happier.

How can solution focused hypnotherapy help?

As a solution focused hypnotherapist I look at what is happening in the brain when we experience chronic pain. It can be useful to understand why we  are struggling. Most importantly, we then look at what we can do about it. You will gain an understanding of how hypnotherapy can help you redirect your focus away from pain sensations. Hypnotherapy can also help you change your perception of pain and this can change how pain messages work. The approach I take is both positive and backed by neuroscience.

Self-hypnosis

In addition to attending hypnotherapy sessions, you are encouraged to use self-hypnosis regularly at home. This can help you manage chronic pain in the long term and give you the confidence to enjoy life more.

Would you like to find out how hypnotherapy can help you?

If you would like to learn more about what I do you can book an initial consultation. This gives you the opportunity to meet me and hear my ‘brain talk’ for yourself. The consultation can be incredibly useful and encouraging.

Recognising that you might need some support and seeking it out is a step in the right direction. Through hypnotherapy, you can discover your inner strengths and resources so that you can manage pain better and experience a better quality of life.

Are you tired of too little sleep?

Are you struggling to enjoy each day?

The evenings are getting lighter and the clocks will be going forward. The resulting increase in daylight hours can have a positive impact on our mood, especially if we are spending time outside.

But what if you are struggling with insomnia and are unable to fully enjoy each day. Perhaps the knock on effect of this is leaving you feeling drained and irritable. Lack of sleep can make it more difficult to concentrate and, in other words, do the things we need to do and want to do.

Insomnia

Sadly, it is estimated that as many as a third of adults and two thirds of teenagers, for whatever reason, are not getting enough sleep.

These are the recommended number of hours:

  • School children 6-13 years: 9-11 hours
  • Teenagers 14-17 years: 8-10 hours
  • Adults: 7-8 hours

Sleep hygiene

Establishing good routines and behaviours to promote sleep; known as sleep hygiene, can help. This could include:

  • Establishing a regular sleep schedule
  • Limiting daytime napping
  • Avoiding vigorous physical exercise and intense mental stimulation too close to bedtime
  • Avoiding stimulants such as caffeine, nicotine and alcohol in the late evening
  • Limiting your exposure to bright light in the hours leading up to bedtime
  • Creating a peaceful, comfortable, dark sleeping environment
  • Limiting the use of electronic devices in the bedroom
  • Exercising regularly
  • Scheduling time to unwind and relax

Are you caught in a vicious cycle?

Maybe you have tried all these things and are still struggling. This may result in us becoming caught in a vicious cycle, where the more we don’t sleep, the more anxious we get about it, which leads to us having yet more trouble sleeping.

Hypnotherapy can help

Research shows that stress, anxiety and depression are often the underlying causes of insomnia. Thankfully, hypnotherapy can be a very effective tool in overcoming sleep difficulties. By addressing the underlying stress related issues, hypnotherapy can help you overcome anxiety and depression.

One of the first things my clients notice, after just a few hypnotherapy sessions, is that they are sleeping better. The impact this has on their ability to cope, for example by better regulating their emotional responses and having the confidence to deal with challenges, is incredibly positive.

Perhaps tinnitus is keeping you awake?

Tinnitus is usually linked to hearing loss and part of the ageing process. It can also be caused as a result of exposure to loud noise or ear conditions. It is estimated that about 1 in 10 adults in the UK have tinnitus.

People with tinnitus experience sounds in the ear that aren’t produced by external stimuli. These sounds can be constant, intermittent or pulsating and occur in one or both ears. Sounds commonly  range from hissing, sizzling, buzzing, whooshing, white noise or even hearing fragments of tunes or songs.

Tinnitus can be very distressing and can result in increased anxiety and difficulty sleeping.

Hypnotherapy can help you manage tinnitus

Hypnotherapy can help reduce the stress produced by tinnitus. Self-hypnosis can be used as a tool to promote relaxation and break down unhelpful thought patterns in the subconscious mind that are creating a stress response. Sleep can be achieved by allowing both the mind and body to relax.

Manage chronic pain

Chronic pain may also be preventing you from sleeping well. Hypnotherapy can be a useful tool. Research shows hypnosis can significantly reduce pain associated with a range of chronic pain conditions. Read more about this in my April blog. There may be other physical challenges that you are dealing with that impacting on your sleep. Hypnotherapy can help you manage these better and consequently improve sleep.

De clutter your mind with hypnotherapy

Is it time for a good clear out?

Did you know February is named after the purification ritual ‘Februa’, which is an old Roman spring cleaning festival?

Are YOU ready for a spring clean this February? Perhaps your mind feels cluttered. As a consequence, you may be finding it hard to focus.

Let go of the past

Letting go of things that are no longer useful can be incredibly freeing. Thanks to neuroplasticity; we can all move on from the past and free ourselves from thoughts and memories that no longer serve us. In other words, we can rewire our brains.

Solution focused hypnotherapy doesn’t involve delving into the past. Instead, it is about embracing the present and moving forward. It is interesting how many clients talk about how they are de-cluttering their homes. In a nutshell, sorting out mental clutter can motivate us to do the same in our living environment.

Exploring the potential benefits of clearing out

From a psychological perspective, de-cluttering can bring about many benefits. This is explored by Psychology Today:

https://www.psychologytoday.com/gb/blog/in-practice/201802/6-benefits-uncluttered-space

Are you getting side tracked by your thinking?

If our thinking is cluttered we could also feel muddled and therefore lack good judgement. Excessive or prolonged stress can drain us emotionally and deplete our motivation. As a result, any sense of excitement about the future can diminish. Negative overthinking can begin to take over because we are losing sight of the good things.

When I have been stressed in the past and look back now, I can laugh at the absurdity of the things I was worrying about. None of the bad things I was envisaging actually happened. In short, most of the things we negatively forecast when we are overly stressed don’t ever happen!

Hypnotherapy can help you focus on what is useful

Catastrophising in this way can cause us to get us trapped in a cycle of negative thinking. Hypnotherapy can help you break free and let go of negative thoughts. The solution focused approach I use helps you re-direct your thinking in positive ways, therefore encouraging positive thoughts to increase. The benefits of positive mental focus mind can be far reaching. Similarly, often our enjoyment of life also increases. Solution focused hypnotherapy can give you the confidence and motivation to create a more sparkly future for yourself.

Light up the love

February’s celebration of  St.Valentine’s love can be a great reminder to appreciate others. Whether single or with a partner, we can celebrate love in its many forms, including our beloved pets. Acknowledging the positive and supportive relationships in our lives is good for our mental and emotional health.

Let go of negative self-talk

Is the relationship we have with ourselves loving? Is our self-talk positive? For example, are we using encouraging words as part of our internal dialogue? Even spring cleaning can be seen as an act of self-love. In that, as we care for our homes, we are creating a beautiful space that we can enjoy and feel comfortable in. Building on the cleaning metaphor, do we need to pick up a feather duster and clear away those negative thoughts? This can be very useful because the dusty cobwebs of old negative belief patterns can hide our good aspects.

Are you struggling to think positively?

Maybe you are struggling to break free from negative thinking and self-sabotage. Hypnotherapy can help you develop the ability to manage stress, overcome negative thinking and confidently step into a brighter future.

I have helped many people tap into their innate strengths and capabilities, often discovering new ones along the way. You can take steps to be the person you want to be and know you can be.

Prioritise your personal well-being! You deserve it!

 

Struggling to achieve your goals?

It started off so well

It’s a new year. Your intentions were so good. You had everything mapped out. You were ‘good to go’…. It worked for a while but then you hit a mental block and your motivation went out the window. Frustration can then set in. You are not alone. Research shows the majority of us (a staggering 80%) don’t achieve our new year’s goals.

Stepping out of our comfort zone

It is fantastic to have worthwhile goals and that accompanying sense of excitement and achievement as we work towards them. In the process, we begin to step out of our comfort zone; our state of being that we see as familiar and safe.

Stepping out of this zone can feel threatening, even though the changes are invariably good for us in the long term. These goals may be to eat more healthily, quit smoking or get more sleep.

Seeing the wider perspective

It is natural to experience some anxiety as we make changes. If we reframe this sense of discomfort, it could be seen as a sense of excitement and anticipation. By stepping back and looking at the wider perspective we can expand our comfort zone. Embracing change gives us the opportunity to develop new ways of thinking and behaving.

Changing isn’t always plain sailing

If you feel afraid at times, this can indicate that you are in the midst of changing. When I was studying and giving group presentations I was feeling the fear but doing it anyway. I was learning to feel confident and believe in my ability to give talks. When learning new ways of thinking and being we may stumble at times and default back to the old ways. There were times when I felt like running away!

It’s okay to make mistakes

It would be great if our progress was linear and straight forward, but that expectation can be unrealistic. Mistakes can offer fertile ground for greater learning, flexibility and compassion towards ourselves.

Keeping a realistic perspective is useful and hypnotherapy can help you achieve this. Giving talks is much easier for me now and, if something goes wrong, I can laugh about it and even turn it to my advantage.

Confidence is the key to success

You might be thinking; ‘well that’s easier said than done’. This is where confidence is crucial; to be confident in your ability to achieve your goals. Solution focused hypnotherapy helps you ‘walk the talk,’ taking practical steps towards making those goals happen.

Your confidence levels naturally increase as you focus on the positives, where you appreciate the progress you are making, however big or small. Hypnotherapy can help you be more receptive to change so that it becomes easier and you realise that the changes you’ve made are just what you do now.

Find out more about how hypnotherapy can help you

Recognising that you might need some support is a step in the right direction. Hypnotherapy can help you discover your inner strengths and resources. You can have the confidence to really achieve the goals you set for yourself and enjoy your achievements. Become the confident, healthier, happier you! Grow into the person you want to be and know you can be.

Hypnotherapy for children

Are you concerned about your child?

I know how upsetting it can be when your child is struggling. Perhaps you have already tried to help, but nothing has worked to improve things. This can result in you feeling frustrated and powerless.

Children often respond very well to hypnotherapy. The hypnosis element is completely safe and natural. Because sessions are positive and solution focused, they encourage children to discover their inner strengths. There is no need to focus on the past or the problem. Instead, the emphasis is on how to move forward. In other words, children are encouraged to take positive steps to realise their goals.

Your child may be finding it hard to regulate their emotions

If left unchecked, excessive stress and anxiety can manifest itself in challenging behaviours. The Child Mind Institute explores this in more detail:

https://childmind.org/article/how-to-help-children-calm-down/#.W08DAORxpEI.facebook

Anxiety can build up over time and then spill out in explosive ways. Children who are defiant and oppositional may be suffering from heightened anxiety.

How can hypnotherapy help?

In my hypnotherapy sessions I use the metaphor of having a full stress bucket. If stress levels keep building up this can cause the bucket to overflow. Because of this, we may feel overwhelmed and this can affect our ability to cope with life.

A key goal of solution focused hypnotherapy is to feel more confident and in control. Sessions include focused relaxation and visualisation. When practised regularly, this can lower anxiety and reduce negative thinking. Focusing more on the positives then becomes easier. When we feel calmer it can also be easier to respond to situations in more useful ways.

Disrupted or insufficient sleep

When we are not getting enough sleep, it can have a negative impact on many levels. For children, this can be particularly challenging. Lack of sleep can affect friendships, learning and participation in school life. It may also lead to irrational fears or obsessive behaviours.

Solution focused hypnotherapy can help your child reduce the anxiety which often causes sleep issues. As your child becomes calmer and happier,  it will become easier for them to feel confident and cope better in all situations.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

OCD in children can manifest itself in various ways; from a fear of germs to obsessive rituals. These may include repetitive counting and re-checking things. Another sign may be experiencing recurring, intrusive thoughts. If you are worried or unsure about whether your child is struggling in this area, you may find this article useful:

http://raisingchildren.net.au/articles/obsessive_compulsive_disorder.html

Hypnotherapy addresses the underlying anxiety that can intensify obsessive and compulsive behaviours.

Nail biting and hair pulling

Learn more about these common childhood behaviours:

https://www.psychologytoday.com/gb/conditions/onychophagia-nail-biting

If left unchecked, they may even continue into adulthood. Hypnotherapy can be very helpful in breaking down potentially harmful habits and replace them with new ones that are beneficial.

Hypnotherapy can help children overcome a range of issues

I have supported many children as they take steps to feel happier. It is a pleasure to see them grow in confidence and feel proud of their achievements.

Looking to feel more fulfilled in life?

 Are you feeling as if something is missing?

Maybe your children have left home and you are in the process of redefining your role and personal goals. Having more time to devote to yourself could mean you are asking yourself some big questions.

Going through life changes can be challenging. We can feel unsettled and ‘at sea’ as we adjust to these changes.

Periods like this may coincide with middle age and are commonly referred to as a mid life crisis. Hypnotherapy can help take the ‘crisis’ out of life changes and help you navigate through unchartered waters feeling calm, hopeful and confident.

Hypnotherapy can help alleviate the symptoms of menopause

Middle age can also bring physiological challenges for women as they go through hormonal changes. Common symptoms include hot flushes, mood swings and disturbed sleep patterns. Hypnotherapy can help you take steps to cope better with these changes. As a result, you can take this period of transition more in your stride and continue to enjoy life.

Research carried out by The North American Menopause Society concludes there is solid evidence that hypnotherapy is beneficial for the treatment of menopause.

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/women/womens-health/11885468/Miserable-menopause-How-hypnotherapy-could-help.html

Maybe anxiety is gnawing away at you as you struggle to cope

Anxiety can be caused by events or it can build up gradually if we experience stress for long periods. When we reflect on the past or forecast future events in a negative way we cause our stress levels to rise. We may then find that we respond with excessive anger and frustration to minor irritations. Something relatively minor can then b the ‘last straw’ leave us floundering.

Hypnotherapy can help reduce stress and overcome anxiety.

A solution focused approach

I practise solution focused hypnotherapy which doesn’t delve into the past. My approach is all about working from where you are now and moving forward in a positive way that builds confidence and helps you make positive changes in your life.

Do you need a new sense of direction?

Having a sense of purpose leads you to greater contentment and happiness. You can explore this further in this article from Psychology Today:

https://www.psychologytoday.com/gb/blog/friendship-20/201803/5-questions-help-you-find-your-sense-purpose

When your role in life shifts it can leave you feeling empty and uncertain. Solution focused hypnotherapy can facilitate your quest to find what will inspire and fulfil you.

As you find your own sense of direction, the next step is to build your confidence so you can boldly step forward. It is possible to take positive action each day as you work towards realising your goals. With this comes a sense of meaning and purpose. When you are fully committed to change you will reap the benefits; feeling happy and inspiring others to do the same!

Are you juggling too much at once?

Overwhelm

Are you seeking a better balance work/life balance?

Maybe you are juggling too many tasks at once and beginning to wonder if you can cope. This can lead to feeling overwhelmed. Experiencing high stress levels, especially over a long period of time, can produce anxiety related issues. These may include panic attacks, eating disorders, weight management issues, insomnia, IBS, OCD and difficulties in your relationships.

Relationships

Positive relationships are an intrinsic part of our mental health and wellbeing.

Managing different aspects of your life more effectively can enhance your relationships with others and, most importantly, yourself.

Low self-esteem

Recognising what is helpful and building on this by making good choices develops self-esteem. Taking time to honour our own needs can lead to positive changes.

Hypnotherapy can help you adopt positive thought patterns and behaviours so that you can live more to your own drumbeat and explore your true potential.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Did you know that IBS or irritable bowel syndrome is stress related and affects 1 in 5 people?

Hypnotherapy can be an effective treatment and is recognised by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). Not only can hypnotherapy help you manage the symptoms of IBS; it can also have a more wide reaching positive impact on your life where  your overall sense of happiness and wellbeing increases.

Fertility

Perhaps you are struggling with fertility issues. Being in a calm, relaxed state increases your chances of getting pregnant, both naturally and with fertility treatment.

There is clinical proof that hypnotherapy can assist women with fertility issues. The link between mind and body is an important factor when dealing with infertility. Hypnotherapy can also help achieve a calm pregnancy and birth.

Obsessional Compulsive Disorder

Are obsessive behavioural patterns taking up too much of your time and energy? This can impact on your daily life and prevent you from spending time doing the things you really enjoy?

I have helped clients with OCD gain a more balanced perspective and change their behaviours so they can feel free to live the life they want.

Stress Overload

You are not alone. In today’s fast moving world I see many clients who are struggling with stress. With dedication and a commitment to change, hypnotherapy can help you feel more in control and achieve a more balanced life. I use a positive, solution focused approach to help you adopt a healthier outlook and change unhelpful behavioural patterns.

When you feel more relaxed and in control it often becomes easier to manage your time effectively. Solution focused hypnotherapy draws on the latest neuroscience and, by unpacking the brain in the therapy room, we can get a better understanding of what happens in our minds when we experience excessive stress. More importantly, we can look at what we can do about it and then get ourselves back on track.

Spring into action with hypnotherapy

Spring into action and see how hypnotherapy can help you grow

Snowdrops are pushing their way up through the soil and lacing the countryside and gardens. Spring is just around the corner. A wonderful time of growth and change.

When you are struggling with issues in your life, making changes can seem daunting. The graceful snowdrop arises from a small bulb beneath the ground. This doesn’t happen all at once. It grows slowly and steadily, day by day, strengthening its stem so that it can eventually unfurl into its full beauty. All the while, it is drawing on its resources hidden beneath the ground to support its growth.

Solution focused hypnotherapy for change

Solution focused hypnotherapy encourages you to take the first small steps towards change and personal growth. It encourages you to become more aware of your inner strengths and resources. Recognising and building on these strengths can be incredibly empowering and enable positive change to take root.

Perhaps you feel stuck and unable to progress in the way you would like? You are not alone. Many of my clients turn to hypnotherapy when they are at this point in their lives. More than often, they go on to achieve things that they previously thought impossible.

You too can take the first step to changing your life by booking yourself in for an initial consultation or give me a call to have a chat about how hypnotherapy can help you.
