Our thoughts directly affect how we feel. It is our feelings that attract our life experiences. There is a very good reason why you keep attracting the same kind of people and the same situations into our life. Examine how you feel and think for most of the time and this will give you a clue as to the cause of where you find yourself today!
Your thoughts are like trains pulling into a station. You don’t have to board a train of thought that makes you feel miserable but because you have boarded it so often it becomes a habit. Like any habit, you attempt to break, the first step is to recognise that you are boarding the wrong train. The next step is to teach your subconscious to board the trains that bring you to destinations that make you feel better.
Physical and mental illness result from continuing to let the mind dwell upon thoughts that make us feel resentful, critical and guilty. These are all feelings that result from us habitually boarding the wrong trains of thought.
Hypno-Psychotherapy is another name for Analytical Hypnotherapy and uses a combination of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy to uncover and address the emotional root cause of any illness. This is the therapy we provide at Setanta Hypnotherapy Clinic in Peel, Isle of Man and we have found it very effective in dealing with conditions such as Depression, Anxiety and Insomnia, to name but a few.
The emotional root cause for any condition depends on and is unique to the individual. The emotional root cause for one person’s depression could turn out to be as a result of being abandoned as a child and for another could be something completely different. There is no formula for doing this kind of work and that is why it can be described as a journey of self-discovery rather than a ‘quick fix’.
Following are examples of the root causes for depression, anxiety and insomnia uncovered in therapy with us:
Depression: Anger and resentment turned inward on yourself as a result of being abandoned, neglected or abused as a child. Physical and/or emotional abuse resulting in a feeling of hopelessness and/or never being good enough. Trauma, such as rape, that results in feeling self diminished and self loathing and with little or no self confidence.
Anxiety: Lack of trust in yourself and in life as a result of being abandoned or neglected as a child. This then results in the need to be in control in order to minimise surprises. Fear of the unknown would prevent the individual from experimenting or
trying something new or even making a decision.
Insomnia: Guilt arising from something the individual did or failed to do and which continues to haunt the person. Insecurity, feeling inadequate and worried about how others perceive you. You seek approval to validate self and you yearn recognition.
Having uncovered the underlying emotional root cause of the condition the next step is to remove the negative emotion associated with it. Once this is done the client spontaneously feels better as if a weight has been lifted and they can’t imagine what life had been like for them before they did this. They remember that they came for therapy with a problem but it just does not affect them any longer so it no longer takes up any space in their psyche. I liken it to a woman who experiences excruciating pain during labour and childbirth. While it was happening it became central in their lives and they were unable to feel anything else. Once it was over, they remember it happened but it does not occupy their minds any longer.
Once the condition has been resolved in this way it cannot return because in order for it to do so you would have to relive your life exactly as you had done in order to recreate it and this is simply not possible!
