Many of our difficult times and traumatic experiences (assaults, accidents, surgeries, chronic illness, developmental and long-term exposure to stressful environments and situations etc) over our lifetime cause strong physical and emotional reactions that can be stored in the body. These traumas can accumulate and take their toll on the brain and body. Subconsciously the body reacts in contraction (tensions and resistances) as a protective measure, and we may become 'stuck' in a state high alert, always scanning for threats, with our autonomic nervous system response acting as though we are constantly under attack. Over time, this is very draining and takes a great toll upon body, mind and emotion. When this inner tension, fear and stress becomes chronic, it leads to hyperarousal of our freeze, fight and flight survival responses which in turn may impair the natural regulation of bodily processes (dysregulation). This dysregulation restricts the free action of the systems of the body and diminishes our ability to handle stress, pain and life's challenges effectively. This results in interruption of the natural 'free-flow' of life and health causing a state of ‘stagnation’ in which we may experience a loss of vitality, increased pain, tension, gut issues, anxiety and depressive states of being. Common signs of this disorder include; insomnia, tension headaches and migraines, chronic neck, face and jaw tension, grinding the teeth (especially during sleep), fibromyalgia and 'wandering pain' syndromes, anxiety, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), looping or ruminating negative thoughts, feeling dissociated from the body, increased use of drugs, alcohol or pornography, increased feelings of frustration and anger, feeling stuck or a sense of hopelessness. Our Healing Hypnotherapy can safely and gently help free your inner tension and wounding to free the return to a spontaneous flow of energy and consciousness within, helping your body to heal and recover, become more present and engaged in life and restore ease and peace of mind.
What is Healing Hypnotherapy?
The aim of Healing Hypnotherapy is to safely guide mind and body into a natural Healing State so that the intrinsic healing capacity of our brain and body can learn to regulate and calm our nervous system, release chronic tension, diminish pain, calm the mind and restore the body to health and wellbeing. This healing state is a deeply restful, safe, and relaxed liminal space- something akin to the in-between state we experience between wakefulness and drifting off to sleep- with a healing intention behind it. In this Healing State we can safely and comfortably start to slow down, relax, and let go of our inner contraction and begin to safely and gently heal our wounds of mind, body and emotion.
How does Healing Hypnotherapy work?
Every time we enter this safe, relaxed Healing State the deeper part of the subconscious automatically ‘takes out the trash.’ Helping restore health, balance and integrity to mind, body, and emotion, comfortably and naturally without having to sort through all the scraps of the past. Images, thoughts and feelings are allowed to come and go, at their own pace and their own rate, in a natural flow of consciousness and energy. It all happens peacefully, safely, and comfortably ‘behind the scenes’ at the deeper subconscious level. The subconscious runs all the physical and emotional responses automatically, so it knows exactly what is required to strengthen, clear, resolve and relax in the right way for us automatically and naturally. Our subconscious permits all the inner resources within us to go to work ‘behind the scenes’ so to speak, and arrange new learning, new possibilities and access the healing potential of mind and body at deeper levels. .So, we can relax and allow the intrinsic healing, creative and new-learning capacity within work for and with us.
