It’s quite common to think of hypnotherapy as being particularly suited to certain types of problems and this is partly down to certain types of problems being more common in people's lives or at least having the greatest light shone on them.
Of course many people struggle with weight issues, or want to quit smoking, or have a long term phobia that afflicts their lives, and in their search for help they sometimes turn to hypnotherapy. So perhaps it's understandable tht hypnotherapy has come to be strongly associated with these types of issues.
The truth is that hypnotherapy can be used in so many more helpful and creative ways (and not just to solve problems) that it’s a shame that we’ve become so focused on just the treatments we’ve come to associate it with. From pain management, to improving sports performance (and work performance), even helping to improve relationships, hypnotherapy can have a huge beneficial impact in so many people's lives.
In any situation where you as an individual have an element of control, Cognitive Hypnotherapy and NLP (Neuro Logical programming) techniques can be of great use. After all we live a large part our lives in our mind and by changing how we look at any given situation we can have an impact on the world around us. We have a thought, the thought becomes an action, and the action leads to a real life situation. Change the types of thought that pop into your mind and you can change your life circumstances. Of course the trouble is that it’s not so easy to ‘stop’ thinking about something just by deciding to on a conscious level. In fact it’s pretty impossible...the more you try to not think of something, you can be pretty sure that that’s exactly what your next thought will be. They way around this is to change at a subconscious level, and the way to do that is of course is to work at the subconscious level.
