In this Moment
So many of my patients are working in the very high pressured corporate arenas and are fairly consistently challenged to perform, compete and excel. This pressure causes stress, anxiety and many times depression. If the level of self confidence is lacking, the path to success is definitely harder. There are many tools available to help with this. The most exciting work I do is helping people in this area. Utilizing insight oriented therapy along with hypnosis is one of those excellent tools. In particular it is helpful with feeling more confident with presentations in small and large groups. Many times I have found that the stumbling blocks for many people are small incidents in their early life that left them with feelings of unease, embarrassment, and self conscious. These uncomfortable feelings can become barriers to moving successfully forward. Hypnosis is an excellent way to manage and to let go of these uncomfortable feelings. Hypnosis is also a very good mechanism to impart positive suggestions for success and achieving goals by utilizing the power of the subconscious mind.
The combination of psychotherapy and hypnosis is also very helpful with stress management.
With technology and social media, people are constantly bombarded with information that leads many times into overload. Just look around at how many people are on their iPhones or computers. Because of this, there is a definite hyperarousal of the nervous system in a way never before experienced. Learning to manage stress is essential not only to feel more in control, but to lower the over all stress reaction in the body. If this is not taken care of and the stress level builds, the overall health is affected both mentally and physically.
