It has been said that human beings are ‘creatures of habit’. Habits are routines of behaviours that occur outside of conscious awareness, many are helpful, in that they help us to manage our time, and complete important and routine everyday tasks.
However, most people admit to being troubled by unwanted habits at some time in their life, and attempt to eliminate them. How many of your friends start the New Year full of good intentions to kick an unwanted habit, and give up by the end of January? Maybe this has happened to you too!
We may struggle to overcome unwanted habits and our conscious mind will tell us that we should stop but somehow we continue with that old habit.
Hypnosis works for a full range of unwanted habits and behaviours which are carried out unconsciously, usually in search of comfort and often as a result of perceived stressful situations. They are often irrational and can cause a great deal of distress, such as trichotillomania (hair pulling) and bruxism (grinding teeth). Maybe you suffer with blushing unnecessarily or biting of nails which can be a learned behaviour (often from a parent or sibling).
Hypnosis can stop unwanted habits and can eliminate them by effectively re-programming our subconscious mind. Hypnosis sessions can help you to break the old cycles which for many of us originated from childhood.
