Do you find yourself waking up in the middle of the night? Perhaps you struggle to settle down for a decent night’s sleep? Do you find it difficult to sleep as work troubles start to go through your mind?
If the answers to any (or all) of these questions is a resounding ‘yes’ then Solution Focused Hypnotherapy may be helpful for you!
A course of sessions, each lasting an hour, is designed to help ease insomnia and help clients have a more restful night’s sleep.
As we head towards summer, our stress levels can increase as we try to meet deadlines before heading off for a well-earned break!
So, if you find yourself working long hours or feel you are on an endless treadmill, perhaps you could look to Solution Focused Hypnotherapy to help you feel calmer, brighter, and happier about life.
One of the most common areas of their life that people come to see me about is connected to stress and, in particular, stress at work.
Workplace stress can manifest itself in a variety of different ways – not just in the office but also at home and socially.
I provide a free initial consultation for potential clients to explain why we sometimes respond negatively to stress and how SFH can help. In addition, I offer a free CD or MP3 track to get you started.
There are parts of our brains that are very adept at dealing with the perception of threats and our negative reactions to stress are an evolutionary coping mechanism, which might not be helpful in our day to day lives.
People who struggle with stress in the office may find they have anger issues or that they struggle with sleep patterns – perhaps becoming insular in their thinking.
With every negative thought a person experiences, it goes into, what Carrie terms as being, their “stress bucket.” As the levels increase so the person struggles to cope.
Achieve Change Hypnotherapy uses Solution Focused Hypnotherapy to help empty the stress bucket by encouraging the client to be able to look towards positive solutions, which can help to propel them towards a brighter future.
A key part of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is the safe use of a trance state, which is a natural way to aid in the reduction of stress so that, after a number of sessions, the client can start to feel better placed to cope with life.
Some clients have also found that it helps to improve their thinking ability, productivity and confidence – both in and out of the workplace.
By emptying the stress bucket, we allow the brain a greater degree for flexibility in being able to think positively, act positively, and interact in a productive fashion.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can also be used to help to take control over other aspects of our lives, ranging from stopping smoking through to reducing phobias and weight management.
The brain is a complex and fascinating organ. As a therapist and clinical hypnotherapist, I spend my time working with clients aiming to make their brain work better for them. But how much do you actually know about the brain? Here are 10 amazing brain facts:
A normal brain is approximately 2% of a body’s weight, but uses around 20% of its total energy and oxygen intake.
Pain is processed in the brain, but it has no pain receptors and feels no pain itself. This is why brain surgery can be performed while patients are awake.
Neuroscientists estimate that 95% of decisions take place in your subconscious mind
The brain’s composition is approximately 73% water. Dehydrating by 2% can affect your memory, attention levels and cognitive skills.
The suggestion that we use only 10% of our brains is not correct. Modern brain scans show that we use most of our brain during day-to-day activities and even while we’re sleeping.
The brain reaches full maturity at around 25 years of age.
Scientists estimate that a piece of brain tissue the size of a grain of sand contains approximately 100,000 neurons.
Your brain generates on average 14-25 watts of electricity. This would be enough to power a single low-watt LED light bulb.
Scientists estimate that more than 100,000 chemical reactions are taking place in your brain every second.
Current scientific estimates are that we have 86 billion neurons in our brain
