Pain Management

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO LIVE WITH PAIN…

Chronic pain syndromes are caused by many different diseases and conditions. These have created serious disabilities, lifestyle limitations, incapacitation, and led to useless surgeries, causing great suffering and needless expense. Mind-body connections play a crucial role in all pain relief. No condition is all physical or all emotional but eighty to eighty-five percent of diseases are exacerbated or completely caused by psychological emotions.

 

You have probably been endlessly chasing the cure for any persistent or recurrent body pain. You are stretched, manipulated and twisted like a pretzel. You try acupuncture… you meditate or practice yoga or take Pilates classes… you do specific exercises like special core training… you stretch… you swim. In desperation you take dangerous and addictive drugs and, you may even have contemplated or undergone surgery to alleviate the pain.

 

But what if we been working in the wrong area of the body… what if where the pain is situated in your body is not the source but merely the symptom of your pain?

Heal Your Pain… permanently… with NO Drugs… NO Surgery… NO Physical Therapy…

 

What if the source of you pain was accumulated stress psychologically trapped in your body and, your body, in an attempt to alert you to the stress overload, creates pain in different parts of your body? Pain shifting to different areas of your body is one clear sign of stress related pain.

 

When the stresses of life get too much, your mind and body will react in a variety of different ways to try to handle the stress… one way the body copes with stress is by creating tension, which creates a change in blood flow to muscles, nerves and/or tendons… it creates what we call an emotional pain blockage.

The tension is the result of stress… and this can be in the form of repressed emotions stemming from relationship stress… family stress… workplace stress… stress about finances… stress concerning you or your family’s personal safety… and stress from exposure to a traumatic event.

 

These emotions are considered too terrible and dangerous by your unconscious mind and therefore, your unconscious emotional mind represses these “dangerous” emotions.

 

This repression begins a process that produces the emotional blockage… the pain and other symptoms including weight gain or chronic weight loss.  It is a condition that affects your muscles, nerves and tendons, and can cause pain, sometimes very intense pain. Common symptoms also include burning, tingling, numbness and/or weakness, and fatigue anywhere throughout your body.

 

As I said, many times these blockages will show up initially as pain or excess weight in the body and many times both… and eventually, if not resolved, these emotional blockages can lead on to more serious conditions such as anxiety, depression, and illness in the body.

 

Did you know that it is estimated that over 90% visits to the doctor for aliments is stress-related? Hypnotherapy is a powerful way to not only eliminate pain in the body but also to address a multitude of other stress-related issues including depression, eating disorders, OCD, ADD, ADHD, migraines, and anxiety and panic attacks.

Do you or someone you love suffer with pain? I have worked with numerous people, with all types of different pain, and being able to alleviate their pain and reduce it to a point where it is manageable and often, eliminated the pain completely… forever!

Testimonials:

“Hypnotherapy? It works! If you like reading miracle stories, then this one’s for you!

 

I’m a 32 yr old woman who suffered from chronic Sacroiliac joint (lower back) pain for 17 years. I had tried everything from therapeutic remedies to cortisone injections to assist with on-going pain not to mention daily pain relief tablets.

 

Long story put short, I have now been pain free for four months straight and have waited this long to tell my story in case the pain decided to come back and prove me a liar, but it hasn’t!

 

After seeing Paul Holcroft, an International Certified Hypnotherapist stationed at Port Macquarie, my dreams of living a pain free life has finally come true. Between his professional first consult to write a personal script that met my needs, to a comforting session where my integrity and sense of well being was put first, I cannot fault Paul’s passion to want to heal others.

 

Despite my sceptical preconceptions regarding hypnotherapy, I was and am still shocked of the results. I’m a different person! I no longer have to spend loads of money and time suffering from chronic pain. I can get in the garden and play with my kids without knowing I will suffer later for trying to do everyday stuff that I ‘should’ be able to do.

 

So why did it work? We all have ‘old baggage’ and sometimes we store negative emotions which our body shows through physical pain. Our sub-conscious mind is super clever and holds on to stuff which may be detrimental to our health, and we may be doing it without even realising it!

 

So if you are someone who has suffered from long term pain, maybe you too can benefit from some mind cleansing stress relief. I highly, highly recommend seeing Paul because let’s face it, life’s stressful and we can all benefit from unpacking some ‘bad luggage’ whether you have long term pain or not. Hypnotherapy had changed my life! Live, love, laugh.”

–Leemarie C.

 

And hypnotherapy is not just for pain…

“Hey Paul, Thanks for the call regarding my progress… doing really well. There is a subtle little stream of renewed energy coursing through my veins. I feel relaxed, energised and calm. Have slept really well the past two nights and my anxiety in the mornings has reduced significantly to almost unnoticeable. Thank you.  This renewed sense of myself is exciting and I thank you sincerely for the calm, caring, safe environment you created with my treatment… much gratitude and respect.” –Annie N.

 

And this one…

“Hi Paul, I wanted to say thank you for your hypnotherapy sessions…

They have really helped me got to the origin of my feelings of worthlessness and understand how it has impacted my life in all areas of my life. It was preventing me from moving forward in my career.

It impacted on the quality of my relationships and it often left me feeling helpless. I am now feeling more powerful and in control of my life knowing that I have the strength, ability and determination to achieve anything I have set my mind to.

This quiet self assuredness allows me to face challenges on my own in a confident manner. From the bottom of my heart… thank you for your help and believing in me when I did not believe in myself…that reflection of myself that I saw from you really helped me in ways that I am still comprehending. THANK YOU….xx”

Are You Investing in Your Health?

We are all willing to work hard and invest our time and money into buying a home, a new car, new clothes, new furniture and the latest new phone or gadget… We also invest time with our partners, children and family… but what about investing in us… in our health and wellbeing?

 

While all those things are important… without your mental and physical health they mean nothing. If you are not physically and mentally the best you can be, how can you give your loved ones the type of attention you want to shower on them…? When your mind and body is fatigued other stuff begins to get in the way.

 

If you are not taking care of your mind… feeding it with positive empowering thoughts, beliefs, patterns and habits… and if you are not empowering your body with the right nutrition and physical exercise you are fighting a losing battle… and in the end you just burn out… you no longer have the energy to do things… and fall into negative thought patterns, which can lead to anxiety and depression… and your body begins to create aches and pains and you begin to gain weight…

So how do you fix it? The first thing you must do is stop worrying about anything external from your self… now I do not mean be selfish and self-centred… bus as we have already mentioned… if we are not functioning at our best… then how can we expect to be able to help and support others… to provide adequately for our families? Get you mentally and physically right and everything becomes easier…

 

The first question you want to ask yourself is are you eating right and getting all the nutrition your body and mind needs for optimal performance? If you are not sure then you need to start really thinking about what you are putting into your mouth… ask yourself… while this food may taste fantastic is it going to nourish me… or is it just dead food.

 

Are you taking nutritional supplements on a daily basis…? And we are not talking about the cheap multivitamins and minerals regularly available on your supermarket or chemist shelves… w e mean a powerful effective quality nutritional supplement program that covers all the bases; vitamins, minerals, probiotics, enzymes, amino acids and antioxidants. If not then you need to get onto one now.

 

And do not kid yourself that you will get all you need from the food you eat. Our soils are so depleted of natural minerals and nutrients, it makes it near on impossible to get all the nutrients we need from the food we eat… even if you eat only organically grown food.

    Eliminate Pain and Stress with Hypnotherapy

The next step is to address your stress levels. Latest research has shown that stress is a major factor in pain, illness and disease in the body. We are constantly bombarded with stress on a daily basis through relationship stress, family stress, workplace and schoolyard stress, environmental stress and media stress through our TVs and social media sites.

 

These constant stresses build up and eventually create emotional and psychological blockages in our bodies. These emotional and psychological blockages are the source of a lot of the pain in our bodies… even long-term chronic pain. Add to that the stress of our bodies trying to deal with all the toxins created by these stresses and you have a toxic bombshell… no wonder our populations are becoming obese.

 

Stress release methods like yoga, meditation, mindfulness, counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and emotional freedom technique (EFT) are all useful ways to handle stress in our lives, but by far the fastest and most effective way is through hypnosis, and results can often be achieved in just one session.

Are You Holding onto Pain?

What causes pain in our bodies? We know that knee and joint pain is a condition in which a tendon and or its ligaments become irritated and inflamed, causing pain and tenderness around a joint. The condition can occur in any of the body’s tendons, but is most common in the knees, ankles, elbows, shoulders, heels and wrists…

 

We also know that when muscles become stressed and tense they tend to tighten up, restricting movement, and can cause acute pain, even throwing other parts of the body out of balance to compensate…

 

So when we injure ourselves inflammation and swelling takes place, which is part of the body’s protective process, and the body immediately sends an emergency message to the brain (pain) that something is not right and instructs all our internal healing processes to go to work to heal the affected area.

 

But what happens when the area is healed but the pain persists… sometimes for years… and all the treatments and pain killers just don’t seem to work? So what if I suggested to you that the treatments and pain killers are not working because you are treating the symptom not the source of your pain.

 

You see the greater part of human pain is unnecessary. It has been said that it only takes only 6-8 weeks for pain to dissipate, even after a major injury… so much of the pain we experience in our bodies is not injury or surgery related… it is an emotional blockage created when our unconscious emotional mind runs its programs unchecked.

 

This type of pain is always some form of non-acceptance, some form of resistance to what is… and it stores itself as an emotional pain blockage in our bodies. So the pain in your body can be caused as a result of stress in your life… family stress, relationship stress, workplace or schoolyard stress, and environmental stress.

 

Emotional stress blockages in the body can also be caused by a traumatic event in your life that has not been resolved. The body sends a message to the brain and the brain creates pain somewhere in your body… and sometimes it moves around to get your attention. When this happens and you get treatments or pain killers… or even surgery for the pain… it doesn’t work because you are dealing with the symptom of your pain not the source.

 

THE EMOTIONAL PAIN PATH

  1. External & Internal Stress – Physical & Psychological Activity – Signals Sent to Brain
  2. Changes to Nervous System – Reduction of Blood Flow – Oxygen Deprivation
  3. Inflammation – Muscle, Nerve & Tendon Pain – Weight Gain or Weight Reduction

 

Stress and negative thoughts create emotional blockages in the body which mainly manifest as either pain or fat storage… or sometimes both… stored somewhere within the body… It can also cause weight reduction (anorexia and bulimia).

 

On the conscious thinking mind level, the resistance is some form of judgement you have made, and on the unconscious emotional mind level, it is some form of emotional negativity.

 

These manifestations of the emotional blockages, pain and fat storage, are the “symptoms” of the emotional blockage… not the source. This is why diet and exercise programs, and traditional pain treatments from a physiotherapist or chiropractor, or strong prescription drugs sometimes do not work… they are all working on the symptom… not the source, which is the psychological or emotional blockage… and they operates on an unconscious level in the emotional mind.

 

Emotional pain and stress are the main causes of physical pain and disease in the body. Emotional negativity like self-pity, depression, resentment, anger, hatred, jealousy, feelings of rejection or unworthiness can all contribute to emotional pain blockages. Many people already know from their own experience how easily and quickly an intimate relationship can turn from a source of pleasure to a source of emotional and sometimes physical pain…

 

There are two levels to your pain… the pain that you create now… and the pain from the past that still lives on in your mind and in your body. This, of course, includes the pain and/or traumas you suffered as a child. The accumulated emotional pain is a negative energy field that occupies your body and mind… and it’s very real!

 

This emotional pain blockage does not want you to observe it for what it really is… because once you observe it, and feel its energy field within you… take your attention into it… the identification has been broken… a higher dimension of consciousness has come in armed with your inner guide…

 

Your emotional blockage wants to survive just like every other entity in existence and it can only survive if it gets you to unconsciously identify with it. And when you identify with it, it rises up, takes over you, and then lives through you… by “becoming you”… but it needs to get its “food” from you…

 

It will attract and feed on that which resonates with its own kind of energy vibration… anything that creates further pain in whatever form… destructiveness, hatred, grief, sadness, emotional drama, violence, and even illness… pain can only feed on pain… pain cannot feed on joy or happiness… it finds it quite indigestible…

 

Once this emotional blockage has taken over you, you want more pain… you become a victim… or a perpetrator… you want to suffer pain… or you want to inflict pain… and sometimes both… there is really not much difference between the two…

 

The dilemma here is you are not consciously aware this battle between the conscious and unconscious mind is going on and will vehemently claim you do not want pain… but on an unconscious emotional level that is what has been happening… and if you look closely at your behaviour and thinking you will see they are designed to keep your pain persisting…

 

In order to remove persistent pain… to remove the emotional pain blockages from your body you must work on an unconscious level… and the most effective way is with hypnosis…

What is Stress and how is it Created?

There are many external and internal forces that trigger stress within our bodies and throw our lives out of balance. Many people will say “that type of thing always stresses me out” or “she or he stresses me out”.

 

Stress is any change in the environment that requires your body to react and adjust in response and can be triggered by relationship difficulties or breakdown, workplace related stress, schoolyard and workplace bullying, serious trauma such as a serious accident, domestic violence, sexual assault and sexual abuse. And we haven’t even looked at the numerous environmental stresses we are bombarded with every day.

 

The body reacts to these changes with physical (chemical changes in the body), mental (fatigue and constant worrying), and emotional responses and these emotional stresses store themselves in the body in what are commonly called emotional stress blockages.

 

Forty-three percent of all adults suffer adverse health effects from stress and seventy-five percent to 90% of all doctor’s office visits are for stress-related ailments and complaints. The earlier we detect and relieve stress, the quicker we can get ourselves back on track.

The first thing we need to understand about stress is it is created from within. It is not the event that causes the stress in our body… it is how we interpret, react and respond to the event or embedded internal triggers which creates the stress and creates what are commonly called emotional blockages within the body.

 

So the event is outside, and the stress and emotional triggers and blockages are created from within.

 

When stressed, the body thinks it is under attack and switches to ‘fight or flight’ mode, releasing a complex mix of hormones and chemicals such as adrenaline, Cortisol and norepinephrine to prepare the body for physical action and, excess Cortisol can interfere with a bunch of different processes causing poor health.

 

First is Immunity.

 

If you have too much Cortisol, you suppress immune function by suppressing the activity of the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. This prevents the release of neurotransmitters that help immune function.

 

So basically, all you’ve heard about stress being related to illness is dead on. If you’re stressed out, you’re going to get sick.

Second is how your Metabolism is Regulated and what you Crave.

 

When you have too much stress, you can crave salty or sugary foods. Cravings of these foods are very real; because the body is looking for minerals or fuel (in the form of sugars) to continually adjust to your metabolic imbalances.

 

Many times, when you fix the adrenals and eliminate the stress, you can get rid of some of the physiological cravings – the emotional ones require a different set of skills to eliminate!

 

Third are Cardiovascular Issues.

 

Poor adrenal function leads to changes in how your body regulates heart rate and blood pressure. Inability to regular your cardiovascular system can lead to poor circulation, high or low blood pressure and all diseases related to these issues, particularly hypertension.

 

Fourth is Thinner Skin and Weaker Bones.

 

Excess Cortisol is directly related to thinner skin and weaker bones. Weaker bones are related to the inability of hormones to regular body processes, as well as the excess acidity that is created in the body when excess Cortisol is present.

 

Managing stress and making sure you have plenty of minerals and vitamin D is a much better strategy than drugs for those who have symptoms or signs of osteoporosis.

 

I hope that helps you understand why you need to take care of your adrenals. I know from experience what it’s like to have adrenal fatigue and it’s not anything I’d wish on anyone.

 

The best thing to do is take preventative steps to make sure it doesn’t happen to you, instead of waiting until you’ve damaged your adrenals and then struggle to fix them.”

One of the quickest ways to remove stress and emotional blockages can be achieved quickly and painlessly through hypnosis.

However stress is not all bad, stress is necessary and can sometimes even be desirable. Exciting or challenging events such as the birth of a child, participating in a challenging sport, completion of a major work project or moving to a new city generates as much stress as does tragedy or disaster. And without it, life would be dull.

 

In the modern world, the ‘fight or flight’ mode can still help us survive dangerous situations, such as reacting swiftly to a person running in front of our car by slamming on the brakes. The blood flow is going only to the most important muscles needed to handle the situation.

 

Stress related issues arise when we put our bodies into unnecessary states of stress or by becoming stressed in inappropriate situations. This can lead to an inability to ‘think straight’; and if not addressed, can lead to panic attacks, anxiety, suicidal thoughts and depression.

 

Stress targets the weakest part of our physiology or character; if you are prone to lower back pain, joint pain, headaches, acne or eczema, this will flare up.  If you have low levels of patience or tolerance for others, this will be the first area to present under times of stress.

 

Many people will try to relieve their stress by turning to alcohol, tobacco, or drugs to try to relieve their stress. Unfortunately, instead of relieving the stress and returning the body to a natural relaxed state, these substances tend to compound the problem by keeping the body in a stressed state which eventually leads to more problems… physical, mental and emotional.

 

Unless these emotional stresses are addressed; they can build up on top of each other and eventually show up in the body as skin disorders, excess weight and often chronic pain (often lower back pain). When years of stress blockages like this build up, they can contribute and lead to serious diseases in the body.

 

Fortunately Hypnotherapy is a powerful way to address and release emotional blockages and stress triggers from your body and mind. When released many benefits are almost instantaneous… and others gradually improve over time. So Hypnotherapy is holistic in nature and is about bringing about harmony and balance within… emotionally, physically and mentally.

 

What is Hypnosis and how does it Work?

Hypnosis is a really powerful tool. It can help establish the right neural patterns in the brain to establish a new way of interacting with certain situations. And this includes establishing new, healthier habits (and breaking bad ones).

 

Hypnosis lets you access deep seated behavioural patterns without the emotion, you become deeply relaxed and highly focused which in turn enables you to escape old habits and disassociate from traumatic events, even from childhood.

 

Once in this state of deep relaxation and heightened awareness you are able to communicate with the unconscious part of your mind where you can uncover any unconscious patterns you may be running that are controlling your life… and many times you are not even consciously aware that these patterns even existed.

 

Hypnosis empowers you with tools that you can use to adjust and tweak these unconscious patterns to better serve you and the goals you have for your life. Hypnosis allows you to transform yourself… and the transformation happens from the inside out… it comes from within. The transformation comes from the insights you discover inside (the unconscious mind)… not from the external information you receive (conscious mind).

 

Did you know that many famous people from all walks of life including sports stars, business executives, professional speakers, singers, stage actors and movie stars use hypnotherapy on a regular basis to remove stage fright, emotional stress, self-confidence and self-esteem issues as well as keeping themselves positively on track with their life goals. Hypnotherapy is one of the most powerful methods for getting permanent results. You only need to Google this to discover more.

 

You see there’s nothing strange or mysterious about hypnotherapy. It’s just a profession like any other profession. Hypnotherapists are trained professionals just like a psychologist or a solicitor or an architect… except in our case we are a profession that leads the way for business goal setting, getting the right mindset, creating abundance, tackling self-confidence and self-esteem issues, dealing with stress, anxiety and panic attacks, phobias, pain management, quitting cigarettes, weight-loss, sports performance enhancement and many, many other issues people have to deal with on a day-to-day basis. And it all has to do with the power of the unconscious mind.

 

You may have heard people describe the mind in many different ways but let’s look at the structures of the mind – the conscious part of the mind and the unconscious part of the mind.

 

The conscious mind is what we are consciously aware of at any point in time, in the present moment. The conscious mind is where we do all the analysing an evaluating. It is where we make all the day-to-day decisions.

 

The unconscious mind is where everything else is stored, everything we have ever seen, heard, felt, smelt or experienced… good and bad… much of which, we may no longer be even consciously aware of. Your unconscious mind is also responsible for all of the body’s automatic functions. It makes your eyes blink, your heart beat, makes you breath faster or slower when you need to.  It digests your food and controls your hormones.

 

What I am saying, metaphorically speaking is to look at your unconscious mind as your automatic pilot. Your unconscious mind runs your life for you.

 

Every event and experience you have ever witnessed is all stored in the unconscious mind. All learning, all behaviour, all change is in fact programmed into your unconscious mind. And you have been programming things you learn, beliefs, values, morals, habits (good and bad) and all sorts of other things into your unconscious mind since the day you were born. These habits and beliefs then create neurological patterns.

 

When we learn things, we store them in the unconscious mind and they become automatic.  You see, everything you do automatically, without thinking, is an unconscious habit. Even you’re breathing… it just happens for you.

 

If you run and your body needs more oxygen pumped to the cells in your muscles, you don’t need to think about it, you automatically breathe faster and heavier and your heart rate increases to pump that extra oxygen around your body quickly to get it to where it is needed. Your unconscious mind takes care of all of the body’s autonomic functions for you.

 

When you need to think about something to do it – it is a conscious process. For example when you first learnt to read, you really had to think about every letter – every sound – and just take in small pieces of information at a time – because that is all the conscious mind can handle.

 

When you learnt to drive a car – it was think, think, think … gears … blinkers … brake … check mirrors ….  And so on. It was difficult concentrating on so many things at once. That’s because the tiny conscious part of the mind gets overloaded very easily.

 

So what happens is that when we practice something over and over again, the conscious mind downloads that information to the powerful unconscious mind which then handles all those sorts of things and they become automatic – an easy habitual behaviour.

 

So you learn something, you practice it, you relegate it to the unconscious mind, the unconscious takes over that function for you – and then you get access to it on automatic pilot. So you see, when you no longer need to think about something … when you do it automatically, it is unconscious.

 

It has been programmed into the unconscious mind which then takes it on board as an automatic behaviour or habit.  Now some of these habits and learning are useful – like driving a car or reading and writing.  But some habits and learning are not useful – such as smoking or overeating … or phobias or panic attacks.

 

Whatever we program into the unconscious mind will become an automatic function that is no longer under our conscious control.

 

You may have tried previously to change unhealthy habits or unwanted programmed responses with conscious willpower but how hard is that?  You see, the reality is we come hardwired to actually protect those old habits because it’s the job of the unconscious mind hold onto them.

 

It doesn’t forget or let go of them. It holds onto them to protect us and keep us alive. You don’t unlearn something that you have programmed in. And remember… the unconscious mind does not analyse whether it is a good or bad habit or response or program… it simply accepts what you have programmed into it, runs that program and holds onto to it to protect us.

 

Take for instance; driving a car, you wouldn’t all of a sudden forget what you have to do. The unconscious mind holds onto everything so we don’t have to relearn them all over again… it is our survival mechanism. The unconscious mind protects the body by protecting the habits and learning that you have formed and programmed into the subconscious mind.

 

That’s right!  The unconscious mind never forgets. That’s why when you consciously try to break a bad habit, the unconscious mind holds onto it… to protect you… and it feels like there’s a battle going on inside. This is because that is exactly what is happening. There is an inner conflict between the conscious and the unconscious mind.

 

So whenever you try to stop smoking or lose weight, or break any of those unwanted habits or responses, the conscious mind may be trying to release it – but the unconscious mind hold on to it because it thinks it is protecting you..

 

So it naturally follows that when you want to make changes to these programmed patterns and behaviours the changes must be made at an unconscious level… and this is what is achieved through hypnotherapy.  Hypnotherapy, simply stated, bypasses the conscious mind and speaks directly to and reprograms the unconscious mind.

 

By using hypnotherapy we can bypass all that difficult practice/relearning stage… the hard way… and then changing unwanted habits and behaviours becomes easy… an automatic process.

 

It is a method of controlling or breaking a habit in a quick, easy and effortless way and regaining control of our lives.  And when hypnotherapy is done correctly, that’s exactly what happens.

 

So where do habits come from?  Let’s look at smoking. Many people tried smoking in their younger days because it was ‘cool’ or for some other ‘feel good’ reason. They did it consciously and battled through the coughing and spluttering – the awful taste – and then they kept repeating this behaviour until the unconscious mind said okay… I’ve got it… I’ll make this an automatic habit for you.

 

And the unconscious mind programmed it in as a ‘feel good’ habit because at the time, that’s what it was… it was “cool” or you felt part of a group, or you believed it relaxed you. And from that moment onwards you became a smoker.

 

Now you can tell yourself consciously “I will not smoke, I will not smoke, I will not smoke” but you find yourself desperately wanting to reach out for a cigarette because the conscious mind is the thinking part of the mind but the unconscious mind is the feeling emotional part of the mind… and it runs the show.

 

The unconscious mind is much larger, much stronger and far more powerful… it’s your survival mechanism. And your feelings (emotions) will always over-ride your conscious thoughts unless you elicit tremendous will-power.

 

Therefore, it is a simple fact that when you try making changes consciously, it is difficult because the unconscious mind holds the power and it will keep running the programmed behaviour – in this case, smoking because it is programmed in as a “feel good” habit.

 

The reason hypnotherapy is so powerful in changing unconscious habits and behaviours, is because you do not have to consciously try over and over again to think a certain way or to behave a certain way. Hypnotherapy speaks directly to the unconscious mind so the change is instantaneous – automatic. It makes it easy and effortless… and it makes it permanent.

 

So now that we know that hypnotherapy is a totally normal and natural everyday occurring state where you’re totally safe and in totally in control, the question is, does hypnotherapy really work? The answer is a definite yes.

 

So as you can now see, during a therapeutic hypnotherapy session, you and the hypnotherapist are working together toward the same positive outcome. This is the reason we tailor our programs so carefully for each individual and the reason we maintain such a high level of success.

STRESS CRISIS Where does it Originate?

Stress happens when we are not meeting our basic primal emotional needs, and it builds more and more as we worry about not meeting those needs. Stress is merely a signal of ‘thirst’ or ‘hunger’ on the emotional level.

 

Relationship breakups, job loss, illness, bereavement, poverty, being bullied or threatened, the residual effects of unresolved trauma and any other stressors all have the potential to precipitate a crisis. Even boredom is a type of stress, signalling that our innate needs for challenge or excitement are not being met.

 

But other stress signals include fear, depression and anger. Strong unremitting emotion leads to an overactive imagination that can conjure very real fears or ideas about the self – ideas that can start to feel more real than life itself.

 

This happens partly through disrupted sleep and partly through stress’s effects on how the brain normally works to question and modify the imagination.

 

When someone is in crisis they will invariably have come to believe stuff that may seem bizarre, even to their normal self. This is called ‘trance logic’ and can happen to many people in crisis, not just those prone to psychosis. This explains the scary changes in character of those in crisis.

 

Often a person veering toward crisis will not have strong enough self-objectivity (because of the distorting effects of high emotion) to realize they need a break, to make the effort to talk to someone about what they’re going through, or to identify what needs to happen to help them out of the crisis.

 

And unless someone in their community sees the warning signs and takes steps to help, that person may tumble into crisis after crisis.

 

Emotions fuel beliefs, and until the emotions are dealt with, the beliefs or delusions will tend to remain fixed.

 

The human body communicates directly to us any imbalances with sensations we have learned to call ‘symptoms’. The word ‘symptom’ comes from an ancient Greek word simply meaning a ‘happening’. So symptoms are simply happenings or messages that command our attention, requiring us to first listen to them, and then to change our ways or unconscious ‘patterns’ if we are to avoid further discomfort, misery and pain.

 

Many times the pain we feel in our bodies is just the symptom not the source of the problem which is why many conventional forms of medication and therapy are not working. The good news is acute trauma and pain can be treated… you can break free of the cage trauma and acute pain has you trapped in.

That perches in the soul

And sings the tune without the words

And never stops at all.”
