Hypnotherapy is not stage hypnosis! Posted on 15 Jan 17:27 , 0 comments
Learning hypnotherapy is not stage hypnosis...
was something of a surprise to a chap who came to see me recently. He was initially a little nervous about coming to see me. This was because he confused the hypnotherapy services I do with stage or entertainment hypnosis, which may have folks barking like dogs – you know, the shows where people are encouraged to act as stupid as their moral and ethical code will allow them. He was relieved when he learned that clinical hypnotherapy is entirely different.
The work I do assists people to achieve their goals, even to help them find their goals. Goal finding and setting can be very empowering in itself, working through issues and developing solutions and applying them is even more empowering and enjoyable. We do not have to be stuck in negative thoughts, routines or beliefs.
If we can learn one thing;
then we can learn something else, that’s one of the many wonderful things about being human.
Make no mistake; nothing has to remain the way it is if you don’t want it to. We can choose to make a difference to our lives or we can choose not to, either way it is our decision. We can decide to say yes to ourselves or no. Some people may think that sounds selfish, but sometimes it’s about self-preservation.
Many times, negative thoughts, feelings and routines can keep us captive for the rest of our days. That might be the brave, selfless stiff upper lip approach encouraged by some, but then I have to ask, whose life are you living? You don’t get a second chance at life, this is it. It’s our responsibility to live our life to the full, helping and sharing and encouraging where we can. We should make the best of our skills and talents and gifts to ensure that when we look back we can say to ourselves “I made a difference”.
We can feel great about ourselves when we do our best, to make the most of what we have, to learn to develop and achieve what we want to achieve, and that includes living the life we want to live not only for ourselves, but for those we love.
Sometimes it is scary to make changes,
sometimes something as trivial as “what will other people think” may stop some individuals from making positive changes to their lives.
The answer to that is “It’s what people know about us, not what they think which matters”. When I first started doing hypnotherapy in the mid 1980’s, it was largely unknown, and many people were unsure of what it was; some thought I had gone ‘strange’.
The simple matter was,
they did not understand the power of the mind, which really is the authority in our life. But now people are more aware, willing to learn and investigate the possibilities hypnotherapy can bring in making positive changes to their lives.
And the chap I mentioned earlier was one of many, and I am pleased to say he now understands the benefits of hypnotherapy. If you want to change something in your life to something better, visit www.healthyaudiohypnosis.com
