Your unconscious mind is what is underneath everything you do, say and feel. Your unconscious mind’s job is to keep you safe and it controls 90% of everything about you.
People come to see me for many reasons and my favourites are anxiety, stress and PTSD; weight loss and also help to quit smoking and other habits.
In all cases it is what is underneath that matters so let’s look at these:-
- Quit smoking is generally very easy, it’s simply a matter of changing a habit that usually started as a teenager and the problems times to taking it up again are when people have a few drinks with their mates and return to their teenage habit. I help them to change that habit.
However there are a few who smoke as their “safe place” to help them cope with what is underneath. My job is to identify this and help them to get rid of the problem so that their body understands that it is safe.
- With anxiety, stress and especially the extreme anxiety called PTSD discovering what’s underneath is critical to healing so that the person feels safe, often for the first time in many years, or even their entire life.
Having suffered from PTSD myself I understand that the worst thing is being told to go over the past again and again like most therapy requires. If you’ve been there once you don’t want to revisit those memories.
I ask for a list of dot points with ages and who else was there. Then I help you to work on what is underneath in movie scenes, or dreamlike states where your unconscious mind can re-write history so that you know you are now safe and that memory is no longer current or worrying. What is underneath has been defused then deeply know you are safe
- Too often over weight is associated with bad memories, bullying or abuse so what is underneath causes your physiology to insulate yourself, perhaps make you appear bigger, or even to be less attractive where some forms of abuse are actually what is underneath.
In that case changing your food, doing more exercise or even having surgery does not result in long-term weight loss because your unconscious mind still believes that you must be fat to be safe. Using hypnosis allows me to help you to sort out what is underneath as well as changing your unconscious beliefs about food and drink.
If you have any of these issues simply come and see me, phone to talk or even book in for a 15-minute free consultation. Conscious willpower alone does not fix what is underneath.
