hypnotherapy

HYPNOTHERAPY (HYPNOSIS)

Within the subconscious mind resides our imagination, emotions, memories, our automatic body responses, habit patterns, and our most deeply held beliefs about ourselves and what we believe is possible for us. It is these deeply held patterns and beliefs that drive our decisions and shape our lives and the quality of our perceptions. When we desire to make a lasting, positive change in our lives, it is these subconscious patterns that we must change. Hypnotherapy is a safe, proven, and effective tool for directly accessing the power or the subconscious mind Simply put, it is therapy under hypnosis.

During hypnosis, the body and conscious mind are in a relaxed, natural state, while the subconscious mind remains awake and receptive to suggestion. Hypnosis is an education-communication process to a person’s mind that allows his/her conscious and subconscious minds to believe the same message. Hypnotic suggestions bypass the intellectual mind, called the “conscious”, and zero in on the subconscious. When given a new suggestion that is within the bounds of a person’s belief system and moral orientation, the subconscious mind accepts it literally as a new reality. The ability to re-program emotional attitudes and reactions is a latent talent within every human being.

Hypnosis is the most functional and reasonable way to build new behaviours, create new patterns and find alternate ways of dealing with situations, thereby enforcing positive changed and restoring well-being of mind and body.

COGNITIVE BEHAVIOUR THERAPY

The Talking Therapy. It is a type of psychotherapy that looks at: * How you think about yourself, the world and other people * How what you do affects your feelings and thoughts. If Hypnotherapy is not for you, then this is another tool to tackle your problems. CBT aims to solve problems concerning dysfunctional emotions, behaviors and cognitions through a goal-oriented, systematic procedure in the present.

CBT is a “Here and Now” approach to understanding and overcoming psychological problems. By making links between what we do, think and feel, CBT can help us make changes in the way we think (“Cognitive”) and the way we act (“Behaviour)”. Making changes in what we think will affect what you do and feel, and changing what we do, affects the way we think and feel. Making these changes then can help us feel better. Whilst it is is helpful to discuss the past and understand how our pasts have influenced our lives and how problems have arisen, CBT mostly focuses on looking for ways to improve your mental wellbeing now.

CBT says that it’s not the event which causes our emotions, but how we interpret that event – what we think or what meaning we give that event or situation.

mindfulness

MINDFULNESS

Mindfulness is a mind-body based approach that helps people change the way they think and feel about their experiences, especially stressful experiences. It originates in Buddhism, but has gained worldwide popularity as a distinctive method to handle emotions. Mindfulness exercises or mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) are ways of paying attention to the present moment, using techniques like meditation, breathing and yoga.

Mindfulness training helps us become more aware of our thoughts and feelings so that instead of being overwhelmed by them, we’re better able to manage them. It is being employed in psychology to alleviate a variety of mental and physical conditions, including obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety, and in the prevention of relapse in depression and drug addiction. It can be easy to rush through life without stopping to notice much. Paying more attention to the present moment – to your own thoughts and feelings, and to the world around you – can improve your mental wellbeing. Some people call this awareness “mindfulness”, and you can take steps to develop it in your own life.

Good mental wellbeing means feeling good about life and yourself, and being able to get on with life in the way you want. You may think about wellbeing in terms of what you have: your income, home or car, or your job. But evidence shows that what we do and the way we think have the biggest impact on wellbeing.

nlp

NLP

Is a method of influencing brain behaviour (the “neuro” part of the phrase) through the use of language (the “linguistic” part) and other types of communication to enable a person to “recode” the way the brain responds to stimuli (that’s the “programming”) and manifest new and better behaviours. Neuro-Linguistic Programming is an extremely powerful concept. It is said by many to contain the most accessible, positive and useful aspects of modern psychology, and so can be helpful in virtually every aspect of personal and inter-personal relations.

NLP has many beneficial uses for self-development, and for businesses and organizations; for example NLP enables better communications in customer service, and all types of selling. NLP enables better awareness and control of oneself, better appreciation of the other person’s feelings and behavioural style, which in turn enables better empathy and cooperation. NLP improves understanding in all one-to-one communications, especially interviewing and appraisals (whether used by the interviewer or the interviewee).

NLP certainly features strongly in facilitative selling. NLP is an enabling tool of Emotional Intelligence (EQ), which is an aspect of multiple intelligence theory. Neuro-Linguistic Programming can also be very helpful for stress management and developing self-belief and assertiveness and confidence. The empathic caring principles of NLP also assist the practical application of ethical and moral considerations (notably achieving detachment and objectivity), and using loving and compassionate ideas (simply, helping people) in work and life generally. These few examples illustrate the significance of NLP as a concept for personal and organizational development.

eft-tapping

EFT Tapping

Emotional Freedom Technique is a modern energy healing technique that works on the energy system, not on the physical body. Unlike acupressure, you tap or touch very lightly, sending small energy pulses from your healing hands into your energy system, balancing and re-energizing it and clearing blockages as you do so. Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), which is clamed to be effective at treating anxiety, phobias, physical pain, trauma, addictive urges, depression, anger, shame & embarrassment, obsessions/compulsions, and other various psychological disorders swiftly, gently and very effectively.

Meridian Energy Therapies use the Discovery Statement, “The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system”. When experiencing the emotion, whilst using one of the METs, we can correct the energy flow. Tapping on the body’s acupressure points – the points at which the main meridian energy lines are close to the body’s surface – affects the energy flowing through those meridians. Tapping on one meridian also impacts on the others, as they are all inter-connected.

EFT is easy to use and learn, and can be done by anyone at home, for use in their own personal development. Individuals are encouraged to seek the help of a qualified MET Practitioner for specific psychological problems.

emdr

EMDR

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing. It is a psychotherapy that has been proven to be effective in treating trauma, and is recommended by the UK’s National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Practitioners are also finding it effective in the treatment of other anxiety related disorders.The mind can often heal itself naturally, in the same way as the body does. Much of this natural coping mechanism occurs during sleep, particularly during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. Francine Shapiro developed EMDR in 1987, utilising this natural process in order to successfully treat Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Since then, EMDR has been used to effectively treat a wide range of mental health problems.

In addition to its use for the treatment of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, EMDR has been successfully used to treat: anxiety and panic attacks  •  depression  •  stress  •  phobias  •  sleep problems  •  complicated grief addictions  •  pain relief, phantom limb pain  •  self-esteem and performance anxiety.
