How Hypnotherapy Can Help You Relax

Okay, so it may not be your usual “I want to lose weight this year”, or “I’m going to give up smoking this year”, but taking the time out and deciding that you want to relax more and have some more ‘me time’ is a great New Year’s resolution, and one that everyone should implement into their busy lives.

Relaxing isn’t just a waste of time either, if you don’t watch out stress from not relaxing can lead to all sorts of things that you may not even realise are stress related. Everything from tense muscles, difficulty sleeping and grinding your teeth to aches and pains, racing heartbeat and loss of appetite can be caused by stress, not to mention stomach upsets, persistent tiredness and difficulty concentrating.

Most people become accustomed to a low level of constant stress, and they actually get used to the feelings associated with it. So, whether it’s stress from work, at home or in our social lives, it’s now more important than ever to actually relax. It’s not just about having some down time in a quiet room either, real, true relaxation can be hard to achieve, and that’s where hypnotherapy comes in.

If you feel that you can’t achieve true relaxation by yourself, then hypnotherapy is a great way to teach yourself how to switch off and take some time for yourself. Not only is it important for your mind to relax, but for your body too!

Hypnotherapy involves putting you in a modified state of consciousness in order for the therapist to introduce new ideas and practices for you to embrace. If you have tried various meditation and relaxation techniques that haven’t worked, then hypnotherapy is definitely worth a try, and even the very process of hypnotherapy will put you into a deep state of relaxation, never mind teaching you how to relax and unwind whenever you aren’t in a session.

Over time, regular sessions will ease any built up pressure or tension that you are carrying around with you, and the benefits from finally relaxing will be clear to see such as a strengthened immune system; lowered blood pressure; the lessening of chronic pain, migraines and back pain; emotional release and improved concentration and energy levels; as well as better sleep quality. Depending on each individual person, your therapist may send you home with some self-hypnosis techniques that you can do yourself to bolster the effects.

A comfortable, safe and liberating experience, hypnotherapy is a great way for you to introduce yourself to the feelings associated with relaxation and to help you take your first steps towards becoming a happier, healthier and more relaxed person.

Losing Weight With The Help of Hypnotherapy

Every single time January rolls around do you find yourself making promise after promise that this year will be different? That this year you will stick to your goal? This this will be the year that you lose that unwanted weight once and for all? If this sounds like you, then hypnotherapy could be the solution to all your formerly empty promises, and 2018 really could be the year that you achieve your dreams.

We’ve all been there: it’s December and the mince pies are being passed around for a fourth time, you take another scoop of roast potatoes with your Christmas dinner, and have another glass of mulled wine, because “It’s Christmas!” after all, and anyway, in a few short days you’ll be starting your traditional New Year diet, so you might as well stock up on all of those treats you won’t be allowed while there’s still time. Sound familiar?

Research shows that approximately 90% of New Year diets will have failed by the end of January 1st each year, so if you don’t want to fall into that startling statistic, then why not give hypnotherapy a go to help you become slimmer and healthier this year?

Hypnotherapy is a form of psychotherapy that involves putting the person into a fully conscious state of deep relaxation in order to communicate with their subconscious to create change. For this reason, hypnotherapy is a great choice for those who want to cut down the amount of food that they eat, and ultimately lose weight.

When it comes to overeating, there is usually an underlying psychological or emotional cause for this addiction to food, and although we need food for sustenance and to survive some people have developed a much more complicated relationship with how, what and when they eat, changing these attitudes and feelings towards food is pivotal in overcoming its hold on your life.


The key to all addictions, no matter what or how severe they are is ‘control’, and through one or more hypnotherapy sessions you too can learn how to control the impact that food has on your life, as well learning how to control your emotions if and when times get tough. It is these stressful and unpredictable times that will really be the challenge when overcoming a food addiction, and if you can use hypnotherapy to teach you how to manage your emotions without turning to food then you will live a longer, happier and healthier life overall.

Giving Up Alcohol With The Help Of Hypnotherapy

Whether you’re taking part in Dry January, giving up those cigarettes once and for all, or just trying to stick to whatever resolutions you’ve decided on, achieving those “New Year New You” results are often easier said than done. Let’s be honest, those first few booze free days are usually a breeze until it hits the weekend that is! And if you do manage to make it through Saturday night without a glass of wine or two, then going out for a meal for your brother in-law’s birthday, or a night out with the girls can end up proving a real challenge. No more cocktails after work, no more meeting your mates for a pint, making a commitment to giving up alcohol (even just for a month) can actually grow to be a near-impossible task for some people. So, if this sounds like you, then luckily hypnotherapy can help!

Hypnotherapy involves putting you into a fully conscious state of deep relaxation which makes your mind more open to taking on positive suggestions which in turn allows you to more easily change your habits or decide on new pathways so it is perfect for those who want to cut out alcohol, or even just reduce the amount that they imbibe. Safe, quick and easy to do, hypnotherapy is not an invasive therapy and is one that anyone can undergo at any time. Aimed at giving you back control over your life and your choices, after anywhere from one to eight sessions you will start to feel the cravings and pressures to drink alcohol melt away.

Whether you are trying to overcome a full-blown alcohol addiction, or just a penchant for a night-cap or two, hypnotherapy won’t make you repulsed by a drink entirely, but it will make you content and happy with the choice not to have another one. In the case of alcohol addicts, the relaxation techniques involved in hypnotherapy will allow the individual to access their unconscious mind and discover the cause of the unhappiness and the addiction, and understanding why alcohol is a problem is a key factor in making sure that that problem goes away. Once the problem is identified, then hypnosis will help the individual to come up with better attitudes towards alcohol, ultimately helping their dependence. In the case of people who have a serious alcohol dependence, additional medication may need to be prescribed from a doctor alongside hypnotherapy treatment to help the person cope with withdrawal symptoms, vitamin deficiencies and malnutrition associated with chronic drinkers.

For those with a serious problem more hypnotherapy sessions may be required, but if you’re looking to simply lessen the amount you drink, but you don’t have the will-power, then hypnotherapy is the perfect solution to kick-starting a healthier and more productive year!
