Improve Emotional Health with Hypnosis
Through the use of hypnosis, self-image and personal confidence can be significantly improved, persistence increased and general and event-specific anxiety alleviated. Hypnosis is of benefit to sufferers of emotional instability and to those experiencing grief.
It can also be effectively utilized to assist those who may be involved in troubled relationships. Eating disorders and sexual dysfunction (both of which often have emotional origins) can be effectively addressed as well.
In addition, over 40% of people suffer from some variety of sleep disorder. Sleep disorders, too are caused by a combination of physical and emotional factors. Hypnosis is currently the most effective non-medical sleep intervention available.
In addition, Hypnosis is an extraordinarily powerful adjunctive tool in helping eliminate the distress of phobias and PTSD*:
Phobias – Any uncontrolled, persistent, irrational fear that is accompanied by a compelling desire to avoid the object, activity, or situation that provokes the fear, is called a phobia. Phobias typically result from the corruption of an ordinarily useful mental process called “pattern matching.” Pattern matching refers to the tendency to reference prior experience and behavior when encountering present experience.
Ordinarily, this process is fairly reliable. Of necessity, humans refer to the past all the time. But if for some reason, we inappropriately connect a current experience to some past event, the result can be an ongoing and often disabling phobic reaction.
It is important to understand that because the unconscious mind cannot tell the difference between imagination and fact, phobias can also occur as the result of an imagined or fictional events. For instance, children can develop powerful phobias as a result of exposure to television and movies.
Phobias are not insignificant conditions and can often be disabling, even crippling barriers to the experience of a normal, happy life.
PTSD – comes about in just the same way as does a phobia, but in the case of PTSD, the event being referenced in the memory is a significant trauma or traumas. Traumatic memories may cause any or all of the following problems: panic attacks, intrusive memories, nightmares, sudden irrational anger outbursts, depression and other unpleasant emotional states, even intense flashbacks where you actually hallucinate going through the terrible event again as if it were in the present.
By using hypnosis to facilitate systematic desensitization and through a process is known as the “Rewind Technique,” phobic reactions can be effectively deprogrammed and reprocessed so that these inappropriate fear reactions are no longer in control of the client’s life.
