By now many of you will be looking back over your list of New Year’s resolutions and realising just how few of them you managed to keep. Frustrating isn’t it? You feel fully motivated and up for the challenge when making the list but two or three months down the line you are wondering why you ever tried in the first place. It doesn’t have to be this way though. Wouldn’t you like to one day look back over your list of things you want to change and put a big fat tick next to all of them? Well with hypnosis you can.
If you’ve ever been told to beware of things that sound too good to be true then mark this off as an exception because hypnosis really can be a viable option when making vital changes in your life. And if you’ve tried willpower alone time after time then what do you really have to lose?
A Universal Cure
It might be hard to believe that one type of treatment can be the answer to so many different problems but it really can turn your life around in so many areas. If you suffer from any frustrating phobias that hold you back then hypnotherapy for phobias can help you to overcome these, if you want to quit smoking or lose weight then hypnotherapy for smoking or weight loss will aid you in breaking these habits and hypnosis for insomnia will help you get a peaceful night’s sleep.
Hypnosis can also help you with some other problems that may be a bit more vague or difficult to find tangible treatment for elsewhere. For example if you suffer from a phobia then you know that you don’t like being around whatever it is that you’re scared of but self-esteem issues are harder to pinpoint. Hypnotherapy for self-esteem problems is also available however.
A Bad Press
Over the years hypnosis has received a bad press from many areas but it is quickly becoming a creditable and effective treatment. Myths regarding what it involves and elaborate stage shows have not helped along the way, but thanks to extended scientific research it now seems that hypnosis is finally getting the credit it deserves.
Scientists have conducted brain scans on people after they have been hypnotised and these have showed interesting results. The scans showed brain activity in different areas of the brain that alluded to the fact that the subject was not simply ‘putting it on.’ This activity was different to that which they would have expected if this was the case.
A Caveat To Will Power
Anyone who has ever tried to stop doing something that they are addicted to will know that often willpower alone just doesn’t seem to cut it. This is most likely to do with the fact that when a habit such as smoking or over eating takes hold, we begin to carry out the actions involved involuntarily and this can be harder to control. Any smoker will know that cravings can hit at any time, even if you are not consciously thinking about smoking and that is why the sub-conscious needs to be addressed to break these habits.
By tapping into the subconscious part of the brain it will be easier to use your own willpower against the things that you want to stop doing. The psychological barriers will be broken down and you will find it easier to forget about those nasty habits. So whether it’s hypnotherapy for self-esteem issues, for a phobia cure or simply for confidence; it really can help you turn your life around today.
