Hypnotherapist offers ways to make New Year’s resolutions reality
Hypnosis is an approved method to help with smoking cessation, weight management and stress
DUBLIN- After the ball drops in New York and 2015 begins, many are faced with a list of New Year’s resolutions to change their lives, but many miss out on changing their thought patterns to help them overcome negative habits.
The History of Hypnosis
Hypnosis extends back to ancient temples of the Greek Gods and comes from the Greek word “Hypnos” meaning deep sleep. Anton Mesmer theorized in the 18th century that disease was caused by imbalances of a physical force. He would put people in a trance like state to help them overcome their disturbances. This was called mesmerism.
Fear reactions may range from simple “hang-ups” to specific (or non-specific) fears which affect the activities or enjoyment of life, to full-blown phobias which may be part of serious mental illness. (Always work with a physician if mental illness is involved) Under certain circumstances or in specific situations virtually all people experience a variety of rational or irrational apprehensions. Fears seldom travel alone. One may be dominant, but usually several may be present.
Hypnosis and Well-Being
A competent consulting hypnotherapist, like me, working with highly suggestible clients, can help create change for one’s betterment. Relaxation can be induced to relieve pressures of stress at home and at work or to alleviate sleep disturbances; habit problems can be brought under control, whether smoking, overeating, alcohol drugs or unwanted mannerisms.
Hypnosis, with physician referral, has proved effective in countless physical and mental illnesses, dealing with phobias, degenerative conditions, anesthesia requirements and especially attitude modifications.
