Breaking Unwanted Habits
Our subconscious mind is like our automatic pilot. Once it's programmed, it continues to do the same thing the same way for the rest of our lives. In general, this is a positive and useful system. It saves us time and thought in the many repetitive activities we do, day in and day out. Showering, dressing, driving and so many other tasks can be done quickly and smoothly thanks to our “automatic pilot”.
However, when wishing to change a habit, many people get stuck because the habitual subconscious mind doesn't respond to their usual approaches to self-improvement. There are times when even a tremendous amount of willpower and a highly logical approach just don't work.
However, unwanted habits can respond very well to hypnotherapy because they are unconscious behaviours so treating them at an unconscious level can be very effective. The most commonly treated habits include:
. nail biting
. hair & eyebrow/lash pulling
. teeth grinding
How does Hypnotherapy help?
When you've decided you want to break the habit, hypnotherapy helps because it reaches the source - the subconscious. It can be surprisingly easy to replace an old habit with different routines which feel good and are more acceptable to you.
However, you have to want to stop - that's your choice. And if you make that choice, you will be able to enjoy doing so with a bit of help from me.
The treatment needs to recognise your specific experiences of the old habit and your motivation for stopping. It also needs to help you to build resources so becoming free of the habit can feel easy for you, as you actually imagine yourself enjoying the change permanently.
How long does it take?
Everyone is different and I treat them according to their individual needs. Typically though, Hypnotherapy for breaking unwanted habits usually takes anything up to 4 sessions. However, this can vary from client to client and we will always discuss and agree the proposed length of treatment for you as an individual. The notable exception to this is the Quit Smoking therapy, which takes a single session.
Some habits can be connected to specific conditions such as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), which require specialist treatment from medical professionals. If you suspect this might apply to you, then it is advisable to start by consulting your GP. Otherwise, feel free to contact me.
