Break Free from Anxiety and Boost Self-Confidence with Hypnotherapy
Anxiety, worry, stress, self-doubt. These are words used to describe thoughts and feelings that all of us experience from time to time. For the most part, these thoughts and feelings are temporary, perfectly normal and actually useful. They're a signal that something needs our attention.
But in some cases anxiety can become habitual and problematic. It might hold you back from doing the things you want to do in life. Things like advancing in your job, starting a business, participating fully in school, or even normal everyday things like shopping, family get-togethers, enjoying intimacy or going out for a good time.
Some people seem to know exactly what causes them to feel anxious, while for others it’s harder to pin down because it’s become more pervasive in their lives. Certain types of anxiety are related to the future, a fear of something that might happen. Others types of anxiety might be connected to an event in the past either known or unknown consciously. It may be a combination of both.
In our Hypnotherapy sessions we’ll discover the best approach for your particular situation so we can free you from the anxiety habit. This is not about me "fixing" you while you sit there passively. You will be actively engaged through your thought, feelings and imagination. In addition to our work in the sessions, I may share some tools (techniques, recordings, homework) to reinforce the change. Again, your active engagement with these tools will make a big difference.
Think of habitual anxiety as an unconscious skill you’ve developed. Your unconscious mind is doing its best to protect you from something. It's a behavior you're doing--and you can change this behavior.
Sure, there are things in life we need to be cautious about. But unnecessary worrying about things that will probably never happen is not healthy. There’s no need for it. If you’ve read this far, you’re probably well aware of whether or not you’ve crossed this line.
But there’s good news--Hypnotherapy shines in this area. There are many techniques we can use to help you break free from unnecessary fears and anxious feelings. As the anxious feelings dissipate and you stretch beyond your old self-imposed limitations, you’ll inevitably find your level of self-confidence rising. Feel free to call me to discuss your particular situation. I look forward to speaking with you.
All the best,
As a Hypnotherapist, one of the most common questions I get asked is “Can you help me stop smoking?” And the answer is yes, absolutely. Hypnotherapy can help free you from this destructive habit.
Of course you are the one that must decide to stop. I don’t think you’d want me to do that for you. But once you've made the decision, Hypnotherapy is a quick, natural and effective way to quit. You’ll love the change.
And there can also be other benefits to working with a Hypnotherapist for smoking cessation. You’ll gain valuable insight and learn techniques you can use to improve many areas of your life. You could find yourself paying more attention to your overall health, eating better, getting more exercise. You may find that you deal with challenges more directly, rather than lighting up first as an avoidance strategy. You might develop better social skills realizing you don’t need the cigarette as a prop or security device. You may even develop new friends who are non- smokers or inspire current friends to quit simply by your example. Your children can learn by your example also. Not only that smoking is harmful, but about the value of healthy habits, self-discipline, reaching higher, self-respect and meeting challenges.
If you follow the program I offer you, you will stop. Guaranteed. How do I know? Because one of the basic components of my program is that you agree not to smoke. Am I trying to pull a fast one here? Not at all. If you want to stop, guess what?--you have to stop. Pretty basic. So when you're ready to do this program, you will agree not to buy, borrow, accept, smoke, chew, vape or in any other way acquire or consume any tobacco products whatsoever.
But Hypnotherapy sessions can make it so much easier to take this step while minimizing any discomfort. And I'll give you tools to use (techniques or recordings) that will enhance the work we do in the sessions and help you navigate any difficult moments. My goal is to empower you, so that you take back control of this area of your life.
When you’re ready to take the next step in your evolution, give me a call or send me an e-mail to discuss this further. I’d love to help you realize your desire to be a natural non-smoker for the rest of your life.
The start of the New Year can be an important milestone. It gives you an opportunity to take stock of the way things are and re-evaluate your current direction. It’s a wonderful time to clarify your personal goals and work goals, plan family events and social activities, review your finances, sketch out travel plans and vacation plans for the coming year and many other things. I especially like to take note of any really positive things that happened during the previous year—achievements, progress on projects, personal relations, even seemingly accidental good fortune. This is all great stuff.
So how about New Year’s resolutions for personal change like quitting smoking or losing weight? Well, they’re a great place to start. They serve as as a type of “pattern interrupt.” A stimulus that breaks the unwanted behavior pattern. This opens the door to change, and here’s a way you can make your New Year's resolutions even more powerful, effective and long lasting.
I suggest you transform your New Year’s resolutions into New Year’s evolutions. If you’re repeating an unwanted behavior like smoking or overeating, go ahead and review the behavior along with everything else you review at this time of year. Honestly consider the positives as well as the negatives the behavior gives you. What are you getting out of it? There must be something. Isn’t there a better way to get the same thing? Give yourself permission to explore this with an open mind. Be true to yourself. Do YOU really want to STOP?
Now you’re basing your decision on something more authentic than the calendar date. If you decide to continue you might as well go ahead and enjoy it. But if you decide to stop the behavior, don’t be surprised if you suddenly find yourself absolutely fed up and maybe even disgusted by it. You can reach a genuine tipping point very quickly. When you reach this point (whether it’s Jan.1 or any other date), feel free to call or send me an e-mail. I’d love to help you take the next step in your evolution. Hypnotherapy can be the difference that makes a difference.
