Hypnosis and New Year Resolutions

New Year’s Eve is next week, and it is often accompanied with resolutions made with the best of intentions that may difficult to keep.
Only a small number of us will actually experience success and continue with new behavior patterns past January. Only 8 percent of people actually keep their New Year’s resolutions, according to one commonly cited statistic. There are many reasons people can’t stick to their resolutions; from setting too many of them to getting derailed by small failures. Setting overly ambitious and restrictive goals ― like quitting sugar when you haven’t already been making small changes to improve your diet ― is one major cause of failure.
We may decide to start on a healthy regime of exercising and losing weight and to start off with, our motivation is high – only to lapse at the first sign of temptation or stress. The same applies to stopping smoking, quitting alcohol and so on. What’s going on here?
The reason it can be difficult for some is that we are all creatures of habit and in times of adversary we revert to our old coping mechanisms. And of course, one cigarette or one cream cake isn’t going to make much difference is it?, we kid ourselves, and this often leads to failure.
Or we may be eating all the right things and exercising more yet no weight is being shed so because the results aren’t immediate will stop ‘punishing’ ourselves with denial and go back to the old, well-trodden path.
It doesn’t have to be like that though. People can and do lose weight, stop drinking, smoking, being lazy and so forth.
They may do this the hard way, using willpower or choose to change their mind-set with the help of hypnosis.
Hypnosis can help you stick with your resolutions by focusing on the tasks you want to achieve or problems you want to overcome.
The most popular New Year Resolutions tend to be along the lines of:
Get fit and lose weight
Be more organized in work/life in general
Save money, spend less
Enjoy life and welcome new experiences
Find love/a relationship
Studies show, these tend to be the dominant themes in everyone’s resolutions most years.
The biggest theme is to be or better yourself in some way.
Some people don't even bother making resolutions for fear of failure. If this sounds like you then hypnosis can help put you in the right frame of mind and motivate you to achieve your resolutions with confidence.
Likewise, healthy eating and learning to enjoy exercise can help you with your weight loss goals.
The key to success is to make attainable resolutions and set yourself a realistic time scale to complete them. This way you can celebrate your successes as you reach each milestone, or re-evaluate your plan of action if things aren't going as planned.
Hypnosis works and don’t you owe it to yourself to use all the tools available that will help you ataain your goals quickly and easily?

Can hypnosis help overcome addictions?
I have always understood the phrase “pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.” It is true, but just knowing it doesn’t stop you from hurting. Whether your addiction is to a substance, a person or a behavior, the emotional pain, the confusion and the mental paralysis that keeps you from making the changes you really want can be debilitating.
That is because physical pain and emotional pain are experienced in the same part of the brain. So, when you suffer emotional disruption, your pain receptors light up just as quickly as if you had cut your hand or bumped your head.
It is well known that addictions are often a misguided attempt to soothe emotional pain and distress, When you realize this, then you will understand that finding a way to face your pain head on, and learn the lesson from it, the pain will quickly pass bringing you back to a state of emotional freedom and wholeness.
This is where hypnotherapy is at its most effective. The latest neuroscience shows that the brain continues to grow new circuitry throughout a person’s lifespan. This new circuitry or what we call neuropathways create new ways of being, new habits, behaviors, and perceptions.
When hypnosis is conducted by a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist such as myself, the process can be used to bypass the critical mind (that part of the mind that acts a sentry at the gate to your subconscious) From there, together we can ‘rewire’ or "rewrite" the mental programming that created the underlying pain, or root cause, of addiction and allow you to take back control of your life.
Did you know Hypnosis can be conducted using Skype of Hangouts and a good internet connection from the comfort of your home? I have been conducting internet sessions successfully for years. Stop the addiction, heal your pain. There is no longer any excuse not to seek help.
Can Hypnosis help with holiday stress?
Stress and the holiday season often go hand in hand, but it doesn’t have to be this way. After all, the key to dealing with stress is having the right state of mind. This is precisely why hypnosis is an ideal form of therapy for helping you manage your stress.
In fact, you may not have noticed it, but you’re actually in a hypnotized state all throughout the holiday season. Hypnosis isn’t some magic trick or form of mystical mind control. Instead, it involves using mental conditioning and the power of suggestion, and this is evident in the way advertisers create messages that try to make you spend and buy as much as possible.
Similarly, hypnosis can be used to help you manage your stress, as shown in a number of studies on its viability on stress and anxiety management. Below are a few ways hypnosis can help you stay cool and relaxed during the holiday season.
Hypnotherapy can help you put the brakes on the holiday freight train. With hypnosis, you can help your mind find life balance, where you can focus on peaceful and happy memories.
2. Hypnotherapy Can Help Fight Weight GainIt’s no secret that the holiday season is also where we’re most prone to gaining weight. All that food and time spent indoors over the winter create a perfect recipe for putting on the extra pounds. Not to mention that many people deal with their stress by overeating.
Using the power of suggestion, your hypnotherapist can condition your mind to avoid overindulging. You can still enjoy your favorite dishes, but with limits, of course. By delving into the subconscious mind, your hypnotherapist can “teach” you to control your eating habits all while enjoying your meals.
3. Hypnosis Helps You Focus on the PositiveThe annual holiday rush often takes away from the joy and wonder of the holidays. With hypnosis, you can plant positive messages into your subconscious mind, allowing you to focus on the positive aspects of the holidays. So even if you’re running errands and meeting with family and friends, you can still put a genuine smile on your face.
Just about anyone can benefit from hypnosis to manage stress, not just during the holidays, but all year round. Hypnotherapy is for everyone, and with regular sessions, you can get through the holiday season staying happy and positive.

Can Hypnosis help with allergies?
We’ve all been told that allergies are allergies. They may appear and disappear for some, but we have been led to believe that we just have to live with them, taking drugs to suppress the symptoms, but walking around in an anti-histamine induced stupor or unable to eat foods we like.
BUT… when you think about it, pollen or cat dander or dust are NOT cold viruses or pathogens and there is no reason why we should have a histaminic (sneezing/congestion/runny nose/itchy eyes) response to them.
Peanuts, strawberries, fish, seafood, etc. are NOT dangerous to our bodies. Often food allergies appear if we are eating something when we get bad news are or are suddenly very upset (although you may not consciously remember the connection). For example, a client developed a food allergy to pineapple after her husband told her he wanted a divorce – and she had pineapple in her mouth at the time. Our unconscious mind tries to find something in a traumatic situation so it can protect us from it in the future.
Here is the explanation:
Your brain is making a mistake. An allergic response is a reaction that your immune system has to certain substances. If you have a cat allergy, your brain believes that this is a life threatening substance and your immune system goes into action to fight the substance. Your immune system produces histamines which are trying to remove the offending substance- thinking that this substance is life threatening.
Here is the truth about your allergies. Your brain is triggered by this substance, sends the message to your immune system which goes into immediate attack mode. You don't have to actually be exposed to the substance. In most cases just seeing or thinking about the allergen starts to produce the response. In a hypnosis session, if the therapist suggests you are in a field of flowers, you will begin to produce histamines and start sneezing!
Your brain does have the ability to change. Hypnotherapy produces amazing changes in the subconscious mind... changes that often amaze doctors. We don't really understand how the subconscious mind makes these changes, but the best part is that it works, it is extremely safe and you will be breathing freely, with a clear head, bright eyes.
