Obsessive thinking eased with Solution Focused Hypnotherapy
Do you ever struggle with unwanted and intrusive negative thoughts? Or do you sometimes find yourself checking that the front door is locked? Or ensuring the kettle is definitely switched off for the umpteenth time? Maybe you find obsessive thinking is getting in the way of leading a positive life, by obsessing over past relationships or even future ones?
If the answer is “yes” then you may find Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help. It can ease your mind away from thinking endless negative thoughts which can lead to, in extreme cases, people struggling to leave their own home.
I often see people who come to seek help with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder or OCD. As our daily lives are increasingly stressful in the modern world so, sometimes, our brains struggle to adapt to the challenges we face.
As such, it tries to protect us by re-checking things again and again, or introducing obsessive thinking into our lives. Negative thoughts then end up in something we term as a ‘stress bucket’.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy helps empty the stress bucket allowing clients to have a more relaxed and confident outlook on life. This in turn, helps them to stop worrying and focus on the positive aspects of life as a whole.
I offer a free initial consultation to explain how the brain works and how Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can be beneficial for my client. I also provide a relaxation CD for prospective clients during the course of the meeting.
Each session is designed to focus the mind into a mode of positive thinking prior to entering the trance state which is designed to be relaxing and soothing for the individual.
The number of sessions to help people who have feelings for strong negative compulsions can vary and, obviously, as with any medical issue then it is important to remember that your GP is also there to help.
I was awarded the Hypnotherapy Practitioner’s Diploma (HPD) following extensive training as part of the Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training course. They’re members of the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH). They ensure its members adhere to a strong ethical code and engage in regular supervision sessions.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can also be used to help improve sleep and increase confidence. Also to reduce phobias and fears, and help people to stop smoking.
