When you are in a stressful relationship with a partner, friend, somebody at work or a family member, you can find yourself distracted, insecure and a feeling of general low-ness. It’s an emotional stress that carries personal pain. These feelings are made all the harder by a confused mind or a heavy head. Too many thoughts to process? Too much emotion so rational thought is difficult?
Hypnotherapy eases this stress by allowing the thought processes to look at these stresses in a different way. Of course it can’t take the stress away, nor can it fix the damaged relationships, but what it can do is manage the stress in a way that is not confusing, not manic, but rational and calm. So this stress no longer consumes your thoughts. You’re able again to regain control your life. Put yourself back in the driving seat and make rational decisions that are of positive benefit to your life.
Many people spend a lifetime falling in and out of bad relationships. Fearing being alone and hoping that happiness can be found in the arms of a partner. The truth is that happiness comes from within, and without the ability to love yourself you will find it very difficult to accept love or even give love. This month we are going to tackle the tricky business of love.
We are going to start by looking at our relationship with ourselves. How do we view ourselves? What perception do we give out to the world? Could we work harder at loving ourselves?
In this manic 24/7 world we live in and with the rise of social media, it has become the norm to give out a positive perception to the rest of the world. How many times do you edit a photo before posting it to your wall? Do you spend time looking at the photos of friends and peers and wishing you too could be as happy or as perfect. Do you flip through the glossy magazines and envy the glamorous celebs and then beat yourself up because you don’t look that way? It’s very common and a lot more people than you think do it.
However it’s time to break the cycle. If you must compare yourself to anyone don’t make a comparison with an airbrushed picture. Find somebody whose attitude to life is inspiring. True beauty shines through from within when you are happy. You give off a natural glow, a charm that people are attracted to.
I would like you to try an exercise, beginning with looking at yourself in the mirror and finding three things that you like about yourself and say it out loud. ‘I have nice eyes’ or ‘my hair is really glossy’. Try looking again and remind yourself out loud what personality traits you have that are good. Saying these things out loud re-enforces your positive self-image. We all like to hear it and hearing it from yourself is just as good and can be even more meaningful.

When you first hear the word ‘relationship’ you may automatically think I am talking about a lover, a partner or spouse.
Relationships are more than this. We have relationships with all those around us, friends, family, the shopkeeper from the local shop that hands you your newspaper each day, and many others.
If I asked you to create a circle with ten layers in it, each one numbered by how important you are compared to other people, I wonder where you would place yourself in comparison to them?
Let me give you an example. You have been in a relationship for many years, so you would place yourself on the same circle as your partner. In a social situation you feel inferior to the opposite sex, reluctant to join in conversations, worried that everyone will laugh at some incorrect comment you may make.
How about allowing hypnotherapy to help with gaining a whole new perspective on your social status?
Some of the areas I have worked on with individuals are:
Feeling an equal partner in a relationship
Helping you to appreciate your own position in society. Everyone is important, no matter what or who they are.
Helping you to open up, allowing other near them for future relationships, whether this is for friendship or a sexual relationship
So let’s start today building that positive relationship you have with YOU first right now.
