Habits

Problem

Your ‘auto pilot’ did not get an off switch!
You know you want to stop but something overtakes you and you just end up repeating old habits, that annoy you…and maybe others.

The unconscious mind is that part that holds every piece of information we have ever learned. It holds all our beliefs, memories, habits, opinions, ideas, thoughts, knowledge – everything that we can consider to be part of our minds. We need to access the unconscious mind to draw information out and put new information in.

Firstly, your will need help to stop engaging in the automatic behaviour such as smoking or overeating. Then we need to develop positive automatic behaviours.

The number of sessions required to habits can be between three and 12, depending on the presenting issue.
Typically, with most presenting issues I work with people for three to six sessions.

Solutions for habits may involve

  • Brain Working Recursive Therapy (BWRT®) a therapy that is effective in working with fears and phobias.
  • Hypnotherapy, can benefit in calming the mind and creating new positive behaviours
  • Hypno-analysis is a great therapy for resolving a subconscious issue that is creating a psychological or emotional block. It can release repressed events that have caused further effects throughout other parts of your life. It can help resolve multiple problems simultaneously on a deep and long lasting level.
  • Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is like a form of psychological acupressure. It involves tapping different areas of your face and body while talking about traumatic experiences or verbalising your goals to simultaneously alter your brain, energy system and body.

For some individual’s habits may feel more like an addiction and will need further work and the Butterfly Freedom aims to ‘unlock’ the feeling of being “an addict” for example.
