FOR LASTING POSITIVE CHANGE

11/02/17
Here is a simple technique for calming emotions, whether its anxiety, anger, sadness or even just 'overthinking'.
All you need is a Snowglobe and the desire to change how you're feeling.
1. Take two deep breaths.
2. Close your eyes for a moment and observe how you're feeling. Give a name to it.
3. Open your eyes, two more deep breaths.
4. Shake the Snowglobe and focus on the snow jumping, falling. Each flake represents the thoughts in your mind, the emotions swirling all over the place.
5. Now just watch the snow settle, your thoughts, emotions settling, calming as they float to the ground, just sinking, melting, calming, disappearing.

Anxiety is much more common than you would think. It can affect even the most positive of us, at any point in our lives, male or female, whatever our profession, whether we are in our teens or seventies, anxiety does not discriminate.

Many people struggle with their anxiety on a daily basis yet somehow manage to keep it secret from their friends and even their family. The secret is often hidden by excuses, excuses to avoid doing the things that trigger their anxiety.

Some don’t realise that the cause of their issue is actually a form of anxiety, they just know they are avoiding things; others don’t acknowledge it because of the negative associations attributed by society. And when anxiety is not confronted or dealt with it can rapidly spiral out of control affecting many areas of life, social life, work life, family and relationships.

See below some of the most common anxiety symptoms reported by my hypnotherapy clients.
  • Heart racing
  • Rapid breathing
  • A need to escape a place or situation
  • Avoidance
  • I.B.S
  • A sudden or unnecessary need to rush to the toilet
  • O.C.D, constant checking
  • ‘Irrational’ fear of driving
  • A ‘racing’ mind
  • Feelings of worry or disquiet for no discernable reason
  • Excessive emotions
  • Teeth clenching or biting cheeks
  • Fear of meetings or talking to certain people

Everyone’s anxiety is different, personal to them; there may be just one main symptom or a number of them. Depression and insomnia can often also accompany anxiety.

Hypnotherapy can be a very effective way of dealing with anxiety, with positive changes possible in just a matter of weeks. Just the simple process of learning how to really relax with hypnosis has its benefits, however the greatest changes can take place by identifying and healing the original cause, often consciously unknown but revealed during hypnosis. This then leaves you free to replace the old behaviours with new more positive ones, created and anchored during hypnosis.

If you’d like to read some of my clients stories about how hypnotherapy has helped them with anxiety please take a look at the testimonials page on my website.

Whatever your sport, whether it's golf, tennis, martial arts, marathon running or even kick boxing you'll know that how you feel on the day can have either a positive or negative impact on your results.

Successful athletes are often able to control their state of mind so they have a psychological advantage which prevents them from under-performing or giving into their nerves. Your mental attitude is a crucial element, a secret weapon, that can focus your attention, boost your confidence and give you the edge over your competitors.

Hypnotherapy can be used to help you to eliminate negative thoughts or doubt, focus your attentions and help you get into the 'zone'.

During hypnosis you tap into your ability to imagine and visualise success and if the human mind is capable of imagining something it's capable of making it happen.

Hypnosis can help athletes:
  • improve their confidence and self-belief
  • remove negative thoughts or beliefs
  • increase motivation and dedication
  • use deep relaxation and concentration to imagine success
  • maintain composure and overcome distractions.

Interested in finding out more and getting that winning edge? Then give me a call or book a 'taster' session to discover the true power of your mind.

If you could flip a switch right now and change something about yourself, that would improve your quality of life, what would it be?

At times our zest for life and general contentment can take a dip as a result of stress, health problems, emotional issues or simply circumstances. It’s often the easy option to just ‘put up with it’ when there is no simple solution in sight or perhaps you’ve tried medication or counselling and nothing seems to be helping.
Maybe all is well with you, but you just feel like you’re not reaching your potential because of lack of confidence or low self-esteem.

Hypnotherapy can help you to make those positive changes you’ve been considering; it can help you to achieve those goals, build motivation and guide you through the process of change. All you need to do is make a decision, commit to it and take action for the first step towards living the life you want to live. Can hypnotherapy help you? Take a look at the benefits below and you decide.

“I’m a hypnotherapist.” These three little words are a great ice-breaker when meeting people for the first time.  A number of questions typically follow, the most common, “Does it really work?” And my reply, “If people are willing and ready to make a change, it certainly does!”

Every day is different in the life of a hypnotherapist. This week I’ve helped someone conquer the fear of leaving the house, another to beat depression and anxiety; I’ve built confidence and self-esteem, healed the grief of bereavement and brought an end to comfort eating.

It’s a role that’s really rewarding, what could be better than bringing back smiles? Clients often say, “I can’t thank you enough for giving me my life back”.

If you’d like to find out how hypnotherapy could help you please take a look at the testimonials to see what my clients say or give me a call on 023 92 264464.

Anxiety starts very small. At first it's a gentle inclination, but through avoidance the brain learns two things: that the thing you are by passing is scary, and that avoiding the thing makes you feel good. The more you avoid it, the more it is reinforced in your brain.
 
If something makes you panic or feel anxious you cannot avoid it, you'll only exacerbate the problem. So 'feel the fear and do it anyway'. Start gradually, small steps lead to bigger ones.

If you would like help dealing with your anxiety then please give Serenity Hypnotherapy a call. Why not take a look at my testimonials and see how I've helped others with anxiety.

Stress and anxiety affect our digestion. If you are experiencing these negative feelings your body goes into fight or flight mode and to allow it to focus on the threat the body switches off some of the digestive processes, such as the production of enzymes that break down food. This means your body doesn't extract as many nutrients from the food, even if it's a healthy salad or a plate of pasta. To find out how Serenity Hypnotherapy can help you to reduce stress, beat anxiety and kick start weight loss please call and make that positive first step to creating the new you.
