Hypnotherapy can completely change a person’s life, by accessing deeply held beliefs and breaking long term habits for a fresh and new approach to life. There’s no doubt that the overall benefits of hypnotherapy will surprise you, but what are they?
Have you ever wondered what hypnosis can do for you?
Take a closer look at these 7 surprising benefits hypnotherapy can achieve, and how it could help you.
Kick Bad Habits for Good
Are you aware of a bad habit that you have, that you would love to be rid of for good? Such as smoking or compulsive gambling? Biting your nails? Blushing? Do you have a tendency to always react in a certain way? Got a behaviour that’s a pet peeve of someone close to you? No matter how hard you try, it seems like sometimes you can’t kick those pesky habits to the curb!
We could all benefit by learning to give more consideration to what our stressful thoughts and emotions are really doing. Because while we are re-living gloomy thoughts from the past or fearing and stressing about something in the future, our nervous system is producing a response in our body as though it is happening now.
If you have to work hard at anything, then work hard at being your own best friend and learn to think thoughts that are helpful to you, not working against you.
The good news is that hypnosis can help you access deep levels of your subconscious, and release some of those deeply entrenched negative beliefs, behaviours and habits that are difficult to overcome.
Hypnotherapy helps to dig right down to the cause of your particular behaviour, transforming and overcoming your bad habits for good.
Using hypnosis along with dieting increases weight loss by 30% over just dieting alone. Hypnotherapy can help you to want to change eating patterns and habits from the inside, rather than forcing that change on yourself from the outside.
When your negative self talk changes you can actually become more motivated and want to eat healthier and choose healthy foods, losing weight becomes so much easier!
In order to get the best possible results three or four sessions of hypnotherapy for weight loss are recommended. Each session is designed to help you better deal with your own underlying reasons for being overweight. For some people the problem is binge eating or overeating, for others its comfort eating or snacking on sweets, chocolates or chips.
Hypnosis sessions provide much needed ongoing support for changing your eating habits and staying motivated to reach your desired weight loss goals.
There are so many different factors from genetic to cultural to behavioural that can influence the development of an addiction, but once addiction takes hold of someone’s life, it can seem almost impossible to overcome.
If you are suffering from an addiction, it’s important to release yourself from its clutches and seek help as quickly as possible.
Whether it’s an addiction to food, alcohol, drugs, sugar or chocolate, hypnotherapy can be a part of addiction treatment therapy that changes a person’s mind and outlook from the inside out.
Relieve Chronic Pain and IBS
Some people never get long term relief from pain and discomfort, such as back pain, no matter what treatment, medication or exercise they try. But not many people know that the pain control receptors are within the mind itself, and can be greatly modified by hypnosis and hypnotherapy.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome or IBS is the name given to a host of otherwise unexplained symptoms relating to a disturbance of the colon or large intestine. IBS can become chronic and debilitating. About one in 10 people suffer symptoms severe enough to seek help from their GP.
Hypnosis, mindfulness and meditation techniques can provide an all-natural boost to produce relief from IBS symptoms as well as relief from back pain and discomfort, all within the power of the mind.
Experience a Joyful Birth Experience
Expectant mothers can experience a huge range of fears, worries and anxieties in the lead up to birth, especially if they are first time mothers. Worrying too much about the birth or excessive fear of the pain can ruin what can actually be a very calm and frequently a pain free experience.
Hypnosis for birth can promote the more joyful aspects of pregnancy and birth, while allowing mothers to naturally manage their birthing and bring the power back to their bodies.
Millions of people suffer from distressing sleep disorders that range from insomnia to night terrors, which can not only affect health and productivity, but gradually decline the mental health as well.
Insomnia hypnosis can help you prevent the side effects of lack of sleep which causes fogginess, lethargy, low moods and irritability.
Medications and sleeping pills can actually make these issues worse. Hypnosis works on a deep subconscious level to alter the sleep patterns, allowing you to have peaceful, rejuvenating and refreshing sleep naturally.
Recover from stress, anxiety, panic attacks and trauma
Sometimes our reactions, anxiety and emotional issues and life circumstances are the results of losing touch with deeply hidden trauma that has been buried over decades.
Carefully structured stress release suggestions and guided hypnosis can help you access these hidden and buried memories, allowing emotional release and breaking stubborn old patterns.
Hypnosis can provide you a huge range of transformational and life-changing benefits, far beyond what is listed here. A qualified and experienced hypnotherapist can help you identify your issues and problem areas, and work with you one-on-one to free yourself from troubling emotions and habits, and to change your life for the better.
