Why suffer in silence when help is at hand with ABC Hypnotherapy.
We all experience anxious feelings from time to time which causes the body to respond in various different ways. Quick responses will come automatic, some will be manifested later. The body has learned how to cope in terms of familiar situations which could either create more anxiety or create new anxiety. How we respond depends on whether we had previous support or learned coping mechanisms of confronting the perceived threat.
Think about all the things that you tend to do to cope with anxiety or to make yourself feel better. If these strategies really help, why do you still have the problem? It is important to distinguish between feeling better and getting better!
A phobia is a persistent, irrational fear of an object or of a situation generally considered as harmless. Phobias can take the form of:
- Situational type phobias – fear of flying, enclosed spaces such as lifts etc.
- Natural environment type phobias – fear of thunder, heights, being underwater etc.
- Blood/Injection/Injury type phobias – fear of needles, blood, operations etc
- Animal type phobias – fear of dogs, cats, snakes, spiders etc
Hypnotherapy enables the client to safely experience the object of their fear in a gradual and systematic way using desensitisation methods which are proven to be successful.
Clients will learn relaxation skills which can be applied very rapidly and in any practical situation. These skills aid natural restorative processes – including sleep, generates feelings of security, safety and well being, increases self-control and self-efficacy and lowers tension leading to greater emotional freedom.
Learn to trust you deepest nature and learn to flow with your deepest instincts and feelings, this is what true sense of self is borne of. Step out of your comfort zone and find that you are strong enough to spread your wings. Social skills needed to navigate successfully through everyday situations that may arise in conflict,will be rehearsed during therapy through role playing.
The most important components of the method to treating habits is awareness training and social support from friends and family. Habits treated with the help of cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy, typically consists of hair-pulling, nervous tics,knuckle cracking, chocolate eating, excessive swearing and apologising. Therapist and client will work on keeping records of your habits, identifying the behaviours associated with the habit, increasing your habit awareness and learning relaxation techniques.
Thought stopping is a way of dealing with anxiety-evoking thoughts by training the client to prevent the thoughts from entering the mind. The essence of thought stopping is to teach the client to develop the habit of switching to another thought whenever an undesirable thoughts intrudes. The technique is used as a way of concisely challenging the trust or falsehood of a thought.
Social phobia or performance anxiety has its roots in the fear of seeming silly, clumsy or shameful in the presence of others. Therapy will involve asking the client to focus their attention on their environment, on the audience and on the task at hand, rather than on themselves. The client will be provided with plenty of opportunity to learn and practice ways of recovering from minor setbacks, instead of focusing on how to be a perfect speaker. Once you stop caring about making mistakes, you will stop making mistakes.
Here the focus will be on acquiring a healthier self-image, one that is consistent with your needs as an individual and one that you are able to realistically maintain.
Self-acceptance is important here and we will look at helping to change your relationship with food as well as your eating habits.
Exam Stress Relief
The more you seem to worry and become anxious the less productive and motivated you are to succeed. The anxiety felt can manifest in various different ways such as loss of appetite and loss of sleep making you less likely to be able to cope with stress, creating a vicious cycle. This doesn’t just affect students at school who are perhaps writing final exams, this can affect you as you are making certain life changes, such as applying for a new job. Therapy will include resilience training and ego strengthening.
Work will be done to learn to increase awareness of the habit, identify the behaviours that are associated with the habit and some of the thoughts that sustain the compulsion to maintain the behaviour.
Common issues dealt with are:
• Drug addiction
• Alcohol Addiction
Addiction is a composite of learned habits and chemical reactions and as such recovery may be helped by means of behaviour therapy combined with therapeutic advice and guidance from other interventions.
