How Hypnotherapy can help you “get out of your own way” when you want to change yourself

Sometimes we can be simply outstanding at preventing ourselves doing what we really want to do. Hypnosis is here to help.

So, are you getting in your own way?

If we are looking to change something about ourselves be it an anxiety, phobia, our eating habits, our weight, our stress levels, how well we sleep……....you’d have thought we could count on us rooting for ourselves in our endeavours.

Some lucky people have no self-doubt, no inner voice warning them of what might go wrong if they try something new, no deep seated fear they are “not good enough” or “don’t deserve this” or telling them “you’re a fraud, when will you be found out?”.

But for the rest of us, this critical voice can lead to us becoming experts at self-sabotage. What we need is a way to quieten that inner voice and to re-train it so it becomes our best supporter, our super-fan if you like.

That’s where hypnosis comes in.

Skeptical about hypnosis? Ask a scientist

Researchers and therapists have liked to argue over whether hypnosis is anything special, does it even exist? It turns out neuroscience is the Hypnotherapist’s friend and is starting to provide evidence via brain imaging that hypnosis is a distinct form of consciousness. Brain imaging has shown that when someone is in hypnosis, as compared to just resting or daydreaming, different patterns of brain activity are recorded. This includes differences in the areas of the brain associated with thinking or cognition. This research supports the Hypnotherapist’s view that hypnosis enables us to enter a status of focused attention, where the conscious mind is quietened and we have easier access to our subconscious or unconscious mind.

Why's it important we get access to our subconscious mind?

Your subconscious is where your heart’s true desires lie and where your life-time of wisdom and learning is stored. Think about how much you must have learned and experienced over your life-time; now think about how little of that you consciously have access to.

Trying to listen to your subconscious thoughts can be a bit like trying to listen to someone tell you something important in a crowded room; you might catch one or two words of what they’re saying but the message is drowned out by the ambient noise. Get rid of the noise and interference and the conversation makes sense.

Hypnosis can be used to get that critical inner voice out of the way so you can listen to what your subconscious has to say.

Get accessing those positive resources for free - we all love free stuff

If we listen to our subconscious we have access to all the positive resources we have stored within us, to help us re-train that inner critical voice. All the times in the past when we were less anxious, were more confident, knew what to do, felt good about ourselves.

We can finally understand why all those self-help books keep saying “the power is within you” – it really is. And hypnotherapy can access and use those positive resources to change the way you think, feel and act today.

It’s finally time to “get out of your own way”.
