As Winter starts to draw in, I like nothing more than to get the fire roaring, grab a cuppa and cosy down for some trash TV. Whilst surfing, I came across a show called “This Time Next Year”, which intrigued me. The basic premise behind the show is that guests make a pledge about what they will have achieved by this time next year. A year passes, but in an instant the viewer sees whether they have achieved what they set out to. Cue Davina McCall crying, congratulating, commiserating and gurning!
It is indeed great TV, and I admit that I am hooked, but it has also made me think. How many times has every single one of us said “This time next year, I’ll…..” and done absolutely nothing about it? What is stopping us from making the change? So what do the guests on the show want to change? All sorts of things – lose a lot of weight, overcome a stammer, have a baby, become a competitive body builder. All things that course of hypnotherapy can help with.
Solution focused hypnotherapy will help you to focus on those things that you really want to achieve, and to stay focused. The biggest stumbling block to all of us achieving what we want to is anxiety. And anxiety is caused by negative thinking – what if I say I want to lose weight, but then I can’t? What if I try and talk to a stranger about my business goals, but end up making a fool of myself? All of these negative thoughts are converted into anxieties, which get stored (SF Hypnotherapists say they are store in a stress bucket!) and cause us to enter a cycle of negative thinking, spending far too much time in our primitive brain, instead of in our sensible, positive, intellectual brain, where we should be – you’ll understand a lot more about this after your first consultation with me!
So what is holding us all back? If you are ready to achieve your goals, whether it is losing weight, conceiving a baby, succeeding with your business, or just getting a decent night’s sleep, contact me and find out how Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help you. I look forward to seeing your achievements this time next year!
