“A change in bad habits, leads to a change in life….”
Living with a habit or even a compulsion can be extremely limiting for you. Imagine being ableto live without it, with the freedom to make the choices you want to make, to think and act in the ways that you desire.
A short course of hypnotherapy is often all you will need if you are looking to change a old habit. This treatment has been proven to be highly effective at stopping undesirable patterns of behaviour in their tracks. Some examples of habits that can be treated with hypnosis are:
- Nail Biting
- Thumb Sucking
- Skin Picking
- Hair Pulling
- Smoking Cessation
So why is hypnosis so effective? Quite simply because 80% of our decisions are made subconsciously. This means that many of the decisions that we think we have conscious control over, we actually do not. When it comes to habits such as smoking the subconscious mind plays an important role in maintaining the habit, and this is where hypnosis is so valuable.
By working with the subconscious mind, hypnotherapy gets to the heart of the issue and changes the automatic behaviour that sustains habits such as smoking.
Habits are maintained because the subconscious associates certain things we do with getting a reward. If this part of the brain associates smoking with reward it will continue to do everything it can to encourage you to continue – even if it is against your better conscious judgement. This is why so many people feel powerless to stop, even though they know deep down that they are slowly poisoning themselves.
If there is something you cannot stop doing then you can learn how to manage it or control it. Many destructive habits are difficult to overcome because we are not always consciously aware of when we are doing them. For example, many people bite their nails when they are watching TV or worrying about an upcoming event, which is why working at the unconscious level is so powerful.
Hypnotherapy is very effective and allows you to resolve the cause of the issue, helping you to change your life significantly in a short space of time.
