Everyone else seems totally in control... right?

Have you ever thought that everyone else in the world seems to be in total control of their lives? You would be forgiven for thinking that everyone around you seems to be able to manage a job, a house, kids, fitness... whatever life throws at them... whilst you feel like you are struggling to keep up with just day to day activities.

Well the good news is... you are not alone! The fact is that we are all good at 'keeping up appearances' to the outside world, even when our own private world might be about to crash around our ears. This is usually partly down to the fact that we don't want to appear 'weak' or to admit that we can't cope to the outside world... but it is also partly a self-protection mechanism as we all like to feel in control of our lives.

So if you ARE one of those people who wonders just how other people manage to seem always in control and on top of things, what can you do about it? There may be a number of things you can do - it might be that you would benefit from delegating jobs to others, getting a cleaner, or finding someone to help you out - and you could also book in for a few hypno-coaching sessions!

'Hypno-coaching' is a term I use to describe a process where I use a techniques taken from personal coaching, combined with hypnotherapy. Coaching can be very useful for helping people get direction in their lives for sure, however our critical, judgemental conscious minds often resist taking action; usually as a result of a lack of self-belief. Combining coaching with hypnotherapy enables me to help my clients tap into the power of their subconscious mind, which enables people to bypass their own self-critical judgements and to work out exactly what it is they want out of life. This process is not an 'overnight change' of course - good things don't come easily - but it might just help you get that vital element of control back in your life.

If you'd like to book in for a session of hypno-coaching, please email me today at christy@christyhypnotherapy.com or call 01252 334377.

Hypnotherapy for pain and injury recovery

On Friday 7th February at 11am, I will be again hosting my hour long show on Natural Health Radio.

This week on my show I an lucky enough to be joined by Tim Dalby-Quenet. Tim runs his own business called ‘The Massage Hut’ where he offers clients a range of bespoke massage therapies including deep tissue, Indian head  massage and even Himalayan hot stones. During this show I will be interviewing Tim about the different types of massage, the many benefits and also about the range of issues which can be improved using massage. If you have ever wondered whether massage would help you specifically, during this interview I'm sure you will learn that pretty much anyone can benefit! Whether you are just looking for some relaxation or whether you have pain resulting from an injury or more serious physical condition such as Lupus, Arthritis or even MS - massage can work wonders!

I will also spend some time talking about injury and pain – both of which can be hugely improved using hypnotherapy – and will be exploring some of my recent experiences with both these after some recent ankle surgery. Don’t worry – there won’t be any graphic detail…!

As always I’d love to hear from anyone with feedback or comments: please email me at christy@christyhypnotherapy.com or Tweet me @ChristyRoxburgh.
