Solution Focused Hypnotherapy

School Time!

I can nearly hear the sigh of relief from some parents as their little darlings are returning to school after the summer holidays!

Whilst it may be a relief for parents it can be quite a stressful time for some youngsters. They may be moving up to a new class/year or just starting or changing school. These stresses/anxieties if not treated quickly can turn into full blown phobias and come out in all sorts of different ways. Sometimes these can be very subtle and you may not notice for a while, but usually they start to show extreme anxiety in the form of tummy aches, headaches, feeling sick and in some cases depression or self harming.

School Phobia/Refusal

As you will know, if your child suffers with school phobia (sometimes referred to as school refusal), trying to get your child to school can turn into a nightmare situation; they are likely to go into a full blown tantrum, which can be very disturbing for you as the parent. This phobia is thought to be present in 1 - 5% of the population.

If you have a youngster showing signs of anxiety/stress, seeking professional help before a bigger problem arises can be a prudent step. The sooner you can enlist help, the smaller the problem will be.

What you can do in the first instance:

  • Listen to your child and give them one to one attention - they need to feel that they are being listened to and that someone can help them with their anxiety or fears.
  • Always check with your GP that there is not a physical problem.
 

Learn to face your fears.

We fear the unknown. When we learn to face the fear, it becomes a 'known', and the fear disappears.

Fear is designed to stop us. Fear keeps us safe on a subconscious level.  However, when our fears and phobias take control over us, then we are in danger of not living in a free and liberated way.  

Fear affecting your choices?

Are you governed by what you do or don't do by your fear or your phobia?  If so, you are not in control over your choices and your fears are controlling your life choices.  You can take back the control again, you just need to learn how.

 


Fear gripping your mind?

Are you convincing yourself that you can live with the fear, work around the fear, avoid the fear or even pretend the fear doesn't exist.  If this is the case, then the fear has it's grip on your intellect and you'll be pleased to hear, you can learn to take control again.

 


Fears getting worse?

Does your fear feel worse than it did, almost like a weed in the garden that has overgrown and taken over?  Well, you will be pleased to hear that hypnotherapy helps like an organic weedkiller, and helps you see the beautiful garden in your mind again.

 


Fear or Phobia?

A fear response can be useful to keep us safe and out of danger.  However, a phobic response is a panic and anxiety based reaction that is designed to completely stop us in our tracks.  These reactions are primitive and usually not necessary in our modern world.

Here at Tammy Foley Hypnotherapy in Pembrokeshire, we take things slowly, at your pace, and together find the way through the depression. You will learn to take control over your mind in a safe and supported way.

Your Hypnotherapy programme is tailored specifically for you to help you identify the ideal goal, and supports your progress in a way that is gentle and subtle.  

Your action steps become apparent along the way that are achievable to your own suitability and pace.  The actual sessions on the couch are designed to get your mind in a positive trance state, where you learn how to relax at a deep level.  

During this trance-like relaxation, your brain is working at least 70 times as hard for you accessing your own internal resources and abilities within you that will be useful for you to move along the path of your purpose in a measured and disciplined way.  

Your focus will improve as well as your confidence.

Trance is of course a natural state that our brain finds itself in approximately every 6-7 mins.  The brain needs to be in this state often to be able to process events and experiences that are happening around us on every sensory level.  The brain is like a sophisticated computer processor that responds and reacts through what is being coded into it, and then performs the operations and tasks that are necessary to function.

When we go into trance on the hypnotherapy couch, this experience is called REM and is very similar to a deep relaxation, where, your body feels comfortably heavy, but your mind feels comfortably light.  you begin to notice a detachment from the everyday thoughts and it's almost like the drifty, floaty feeling you have just before you wake up in the morning, where you are not quite awake, but not quite asleep.

This state is hugely beneficial, as your brain is at it's optimum resting point, but also at it's optimum productivity.  So, all suggestions that are positive and solution focused will be taken on board and given an action plan by you when you return to your daily tasks.

Depression is like a big dark cloud.

Do you feel like you have fallen into a dark well of despair? Hypnotherapy helps to shine through those gloomy days.

It seems like a lonely and unforgiving place to be.  The depressed brain is starved of positive chemicals and this literally restricts your ability to think clearly and resourcefully.

Hypnotherapy is designed to manage the chemistry inside your brain to help you move towards an optimistic outlook.

In the depressed brain the primitive part of the mind is much more active.  This part of the brain is normally very negative and worst case scenario focused.  This makes us feel hopeless and unable to see a way out. Depression takes away our confidence and our ability to remain rational and positive about ourselves and our situations.  We feel so low and need some help to get us boosted and back on track again.

Do you want to be more motivated? Just get on with it!

You tell me your goal, or your plan and as I understand how the brain chemistry works, I will help you identify your action steps and move towards the goal you have set. Hypnotherapy helps you get into the resourceful place in your mind to be able to 'just get on with it'.

Do you want to perform better?  Beat a record?  Win a title?  Train for a triathlon?  Improve your game of golf?  Whatever it is, we use a technique called an inner rehearsal, where the brain becomes familiar with the goal and knows how to move towards it.

Hypnotherapy sessions are very much tailored for you and your individual goal or purpose.  We, as Solution Focused Hypnotherapists know how to help you stay focused and keep on the right track that moves you forward with the goal you have set for yourself.

Your action steps become apparent along the way that are achievable to your own suitability and pace.  The actual sessions on the couch are designed to get your mind in a positive trance state, where you learn how to relax at a deep level.

Clear the memory clutter!

We all know what happens to our computer when its memory is full....it slows down. So it's no wonder that our brain starts to creak when it's overloaded.

Mindfulness meditation and relaxation help memory maintenance....

Relaxation is your body’s way of rejuvenating. Relaxing allows time for your mind and body to repair.  It has also been shown that relaxing improves your mood and improves brain function and memory.

I have found the importance of relaxation in my own life.  I’ve discovered when I neglect finding time to relax; I do not perform as well in any area of my life.  It’s not that I don’t like to relax, but in the midst of a chaotic schedule, I found it hard to find the time.

Here are some ways I’ve learned to incorporate relaxation into my daily schedule.  If you try them, you may find they work for you as well........

1) Making time for downtime

If you want relax, sometimes you have to make time.  You may want to wake up a few minutes earlier and give yourself time to enjoy that cup of coffee instead of running out the door with it in hand.  You may also try to have “scheduled relaxation” – having designated times just to relax, even if only for a few minutes.

We schedule other important aspects of our lives – why not relaxation?

2)  Free your mind

This idea was a hard one for me because I’m a thinker.  I think ALL day long. I think about what I’ve done, what I didn’t do, what I need to do and how I’m going to do it.

Challenge yourself to have a least a few minutes every day to free your mind.  I’ve found it easiest to incorporate this into my weekly runs around Manorbier and Jameston. For 30 minutes I run in silence, just enjoying the countryside.

3) Get away

We can all appreciate a nice getaway, and more often than not associate getting away with a vacation. What about when we can’t take a vacation?  Getting away can be as simple as changing your surroundings, and if you are unable to do that, visualize being somewhere else!

If you find yourself having a stressful moment at work, take a walk outside.  If you don’t have that luxury, escape to the bathroom – no one really ever questions that.  If you find that you have to stay in your seat, close your eyes and find your happy place.  Sometimes a little break is all we need to relax.

Find time to relax and take care of yourself....if we don’t take care of ourselves, who will?
