In today's hectic world, we continually search for ways to bring about positive change. Hypnotherapy is a natural and effective process that utilizes the strength of your subconscious mind to improve your life by changing unwanted habits, enabling you to accomplish your goals. Hypnotherapy enables one to overcome stress, anxiety, depression, addictions, eating disorders, phobias and pain.
Many doctors are utilizing hypnotherapy to enhance their prescribed treatment of diseases and disorders, and dentists are utilizing hypnotherapy as an enhancement to anesthesia.
I encourage my clients to utilize hypnotherapy for stress management, as stress is something that everyone deals with at one time or another. In fact, the most troublesome of all stressors in life are the ones that we create for ourselves. Recognizing that we create most of our own stress is extremely important...it is the first step in dealing with it.
Our quality of life is not so much dependent on how much money we make, or even how much leisure time we have, but on how much we enjoy and appreciate what we have right here and now.
Remaining in the present is very important to our well-being. It is here, that we have all the power, control and serenity to direct our lives and our thoughts. We are not promised tomorrow; therefore, we should not allow ourselves to stress out over it. The same holds true for our past...given the opportunity to make the choice today, we may chose differently; however, every choice we made in the past and the experience we encountered because of that choice, made us WHO we are today!
Our subconscious mind "helps" us to reflect on the thoughts that are currently dominating our conscious mind. Being non-judgmental, the subconscious mind actively supplies us with the kind of thoughts that it thinks we want.
This is why it is so very important to be aware of what our messages are to ourselves, what words we use, and how they affect our current thinking. We have the ability to select our thoughts, as we desire and hypnotherapy guides the process. Avoid negative self-talk, pessimistic thinking, self-criticism and over-analyzing. Don't undermine your worth by comparing yourself to others. Don't set YOUR goals by what other people deem important. Looking at things more positively, seeing problems as a chance to show off your talents and keeping a sense of humor are key factors in coping with and managing stress.
