Counseling is an incredible way to get a unique perspective on your thought processes and the overall experiences that you are currently enduring. However, it wasn’t until I began experimenting with hypnotherapy in coordination with my counselling sessions that I truly began breaking ground on some of my core issues. There are not many avenues in alternative medicine that can generate the kind of results that this practice generated for me. Because I have seen such incredible results, I wanted to share my experience and help to encourage others to consider the implementation of hypnotherapy, as it helped me to relax and take an objective look at the areas that I wanted to improve. And, while I understand that this may seem a bit “outside of the box” for some, I felt that it was prudent to outline the various ways that counselors implement hypnosis and how it can help you. Understanding the ‘State of Consciousness’ When exploring the various ways that we can alter our perceptions and gain perspective on our actions and lifestyle, it is important to understand that the subconscious mind can hold us back. Often times, we are seeking relief from self-destructive behaviors or other negative thoughts or actions. Accessing the subconscious mind can help to alleviate these stresses and get the conscious mind working in coordination with the subconscious and vice-versa. If these differing states of consciousness are properly organized, the negative thoughts and self-defeating habits will fall by the wayside, leading to a clearer mental state and a more productive lifestyle overall. Uncovering ‘Core Beliefs’ Core beliefs are thought patterns that have developed over our lifetime. The experiences and teachings from your childhood have a direct impact on the individual you are today. When a psychotherapist is able to access this realm of your mind, they can better understand how you think, which in turn can help them develop a plan of action for you to “undo” specific patterned behaviors that you deem unnecessary or harmful. The primary goal of counselling is to help you better articulate your feelings and expose any self-destructive thoughts or habits, giving you a solid plan of action to improve your lifestyle in general. Of all of the various counselling options that are currently available, anyone that is having trouble kicking specific habits will find the practice very helpful. A good hypnotherapist can help you with quitting smoking, alcohol abuse, or negative approaches that are affecting your social life. Just about anything that you deem self-destructive can be aided by these professionals. All of this being said, however, how can you determine which behaviors are affecting you the most? This is why the counselling aspect is an integral part of a successful game plan. A therapist can help you uncover any specific, imbedded issues that are causing you harm. And, after sessions centered on uncovering the sources of these issues, hypnotherapy can help you to eliminate their impact on your personal relationships. Plenty of information is stored by the human brain in subconscious levels, which is why access to such information can be difficult, yet very important. Hypnotherapists are experienced in the workings of biological psychology, and understand the necessary techniques to help you access this information. When coordinated with counselling, the entire experience can generate incredible results, as I can attest to. I visited several therapists over the years and could never understand why the “core issues” that were holding me back continued to linger. It wasn’t until a psychotherapist helped me, and my therapist, unlock the experiences from my past that were affecting my future that I started to see results. If you are conflicted internally, remember: there are professionals out there that can help you uncover your true potential and eliminate any negatives in your past!
