With the sunshine finally giving way to rain and the nights starting to draw in, it’s not uncommon for people to experience a low mood in the autumn months – especially if we have enjoyed a summer break with a spot of sea, sun, and sand.
It can also be tough to get back into the swing of things when darker mornings and early commutes become combined with working in a stressful environment.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help to improve people’s moods. “We all have what we term a stress bucket,” a fully qualified and insured Solution Focused Hypnotherapy practitioner based at The Observatory Practice could help.
“When we experience negative thinking, that metaphorical stress bucket starts to fill up until, eventually, it starts to overflow and then we can find it difficult to cope.”
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can really help. “We help people to empty their stress-bucket levels by encouraging them to focus on positive aspects of their lives and to work through solutions with them so that they can move forward in their lives.
“Each session also has a hypnosis aspect attached to it where the trained and qualified practitioner can work with someone when they are in a trance state. Trance is actually perfectly normal and we go in and out of trance on a regular basis every day – it is simply the brain’s way of processing information and emptying the stress bucket.
“When a client goes into the trance state, we are effectively aiding them in emptying their stress bucket and so allowing them to be able to cope with life in a more contented fashion.”
Stress can manifest itself in a number of ways and Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is designed to help people by focusing on future events in their life. At The Observatory Practice, “Our job is to help someone move forwards in their life by looking at ways to make tomorrow better than today.
“Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a fantastic tool for helping people to reduce their stress loads but, obviously, it is important that people also remember that their doctor is there if they feel they need to discuss any stress-related issues with their GP.”
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can also help with stopping smoking, weight, anger and sleep management, along with phobias (such as a fear of flying) and easing pain.
