Hypnotherapy for Behaviour Change
What issues can Hypnotherapy help me with?
The answer to this question is ‘virtually anything’. Given that hypnotherapy can be used to access a person’s inner potential and that probably no one is performing to their full potential, then this answer is literally true. However, it’s not just with potential that Hypnotherapy may help, but also one’s inner resources to effect beneficial change. It’s therefore the innate healing capacity of our own body that may be stimulated by Hypnotherapy.
With this in mind, the list of issues which may respond to Hypnotherapy is far too long and varied to list here, but certainly includes: stress, anxiety, panic, phobias, unwanted habits and addictions (e.g. smoking, overeating, alcoholism), disrupted sleep patterns, lack of confidence and low self-esteem, fear of examinations and public speaking, allergies and skin disorders, migraine and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Additionally, it has proved of value in the wider sphere of pain management and in the areas of both sporting and artistic performance enhancement. As an adjunct to other counselling techniques, it can also assist in helping to resolve relationship difficulties and be useful within anger management strategies.
Although there remain many other areas of pain or dis-ease in which Hypnotherapy may bring relief, there are instances in which it may be contra-indicated. These could include some manifestations of depressive illness, epilepsy, psychosis (e.g. schizophrenia) and some breathing problems.
