Flowers are Blooming and Spring is in Full Swing. This is a time of refreshing and renewal.
You might be thinking, why do I feel so awful? Let’s face it, we’re all dealing with a lot of change these days. Since the shutdowns basically changed everything for quite a while, it’s understandable that you or perhaps someone you love is dealing with the fallout of uncertainty. Good news is Hypnosis can be very helpful in overcoming the effects of fear and sadness. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, depression and anxiety are two of the most common mental disorders in the United States. More than 16 million adults suffer from depression, and more than 18 million suffer from anxiety. Sadly, the rise of depression in our youths is climbing at an alarming rate. The seeming lack of control these feelings evoke can have a devastating impact on every aspect of a person's life, from work and school performance to personal relationships. Unfortunately, since the shutdowns, traditional counselors such as marriage and family therapists, social workers, psychologists and even psychiatrists are completely booked with waiting lists, and that is if you can even get them to return your call to get on one. Fortunately, there is help available if you’re willing to look outside the box. One treatment option that has been gaining in popularity for several years now is hypnosis. Hypnosis has been shown to be effective in treating a variety of mental and physical conditions, including depression and anxiety. During hypnosis, a person is in a state of deep relaxation. When you’re relaxing, this allows your mind to be open to suggestions that can help to change negative thinking patterns and behaviors. As a result, hypnosis can help people suffering from depression and anxiety to find lasting relief and happiness. Hypnosis is a powerful tool that can be used to overcome depression and anxiety, without the use of medication. By tapping into the subconscious mind, hypnosis can help to change negative thought patterns and behaviors. This can lead to a greater sense of happiness and well-being. Been indulging in some unwanted bad behaviors, like overeating, smoking or just being lazy? (don't feel bad about it, we all have moments.) Hypnosis can also be used to help you break free from unhealthy habits, such as smoking or overeating. In addition, hypnosis can be used to improve sleep quality and reduce stress levels. Hypnotherapists are highly trained and qualified in getting to the heart of the matter, and are a wonderful alternative to traditional therapists. You may even find you like it much more than talking about your problems. Sometimes talking about your challenges feels great for a little while, however, the more you focus on your problems the bigger they become. That is just the way our minds work. It may help you to know that many studies have been done comparing traditional talk therapy to hypnotherapy….Hypnosis has been shown to have a 93% success rate after 6 sessions…Talk therapy may take years and does not achieve even close to the same results. Of course, not everything is right for everyone and what works for you may be different from someone else. However, if you’re currently having trouble finding a psychotherapist open to taking new clients, consider finding a hypnotherapist instead. You just might be glad you did. If you'd like to talk, give me a call. We can set up a consultation to find out if hypnosis is right for you.
