Resisting Hypnotherapy

Often people with a conventional background resist Hypnotherapy. Things are said like “I like to have control.” I can’t be hypnotised, I am too strong minded.”  “It makes you do stupid things like people on the stage.” “It’s weird.” “I will sort it out myself.” “I don’t need help.”

The same people who resist hypnotherapy often have stressful jobs and are used to coping. The same people often have sleepless nights; worry about workload and office politics, struggle with giving presentations. Sometimes they are moody at home and snap at their partner. Hypnotherapy combined with a cognitive approach can help you with these things and make you function better. This leads to a better life both at work and socially. In such a fast moving world we need something to help us along that isn’t addictive and in the long run harmful. Hypnotherapy does this.



Stress and the work place

Having a business background I often get teased about hypnotherapy from former colleagues and current friends. You would expect it from essentially successful people who are predominantly positive thinking.

I take it with good spirits but when I question them about their lives they tell me that they often wake up at night find it difficult to go back to sleep. They also find it difficult to relax and calm down.

Sleep is important and learning to handle stress helps you cope with a busy life. Understanding the brain in these situations together with changing your pattern of thought through hypnotherapy can relieve the stress and eliminate the LONG TERM effects which can occur if stress is poorly handled.    #hypnotherapystress
