Your mind is much more powerful than you think!
Your conscious mind governs your rational thinking and thoughtful actions, while your subconscious mind operates like an automatic pilot guided by your instincts, habits and feelings. Although they work so differently, the consciousness and the subconsciousness work together to help you survive and thrive.
By tapping into the vast resources of your subconscious mind you can unleash your potential and get thus what you really want out of life; you can become happier, healthier and more confident, you can improve your life and live it in the present. Happiness, health and serenity do not happen accidentally to some people, and not to others. These are long-term goals and aspirations that you can actively envision, seek out and attain. Discover how to use the vast resources of your subconscious mind to beautify your life.
Fifty years ago, when the cognitive behavioral model was launched, its enthusiastic promoters had wrongly assumed that intentional thought alone could control emotions and behavior. Although the cognitive model is still very popular, this theory is only one of the 82 contemporary theories of behavior. Nowadays, the scientific community and health professionals agree that emotions have a powerful grip on all aspects of everyday life. In real life, when you are overwhelmed by intrusive feelings, you tend to think, say and do things you would not think, say, or do if you were in a neutral state of mind.
You can not ignore your feelings, because they are not only the most important aspect of the quality and meaning of your existence, they are the most undeniable proof that you are human, and not a heartless biochemical machine. Learn to listen to your feelings, because what makes the difference between a fulfilling happy life and an unhappy life is the quality of your feelings, the balance between the good and bad feelings that you experience throughout your life. Since your feelings don’t spring out of your desires but are the outcome of your subconsciously driven emotional responses, the quickest and most effective way to control your unwanted feelings is to control the patterns of your emotional responses to life events.
When you are trapped by uncomfortable and overwhelming feelings, you have the choice to accept them as part of your life and learn to live with your intrusive feelings, or uproot them by reprogramming the patterns of your unpleasant emotional reactions. My belief is not only that you can, but you should free yourself from your unpleasant feelings that keep you trapped in your past. If you'll neglect them, negative feelings can accumulate and wreak havoc in all aspects of your emotional and somatic health. Thus, whether you are at the beginning of your misery, disappointed with other approaches or you are already living with unpleasant negative feelings on a daily basis, somatic hypnotherapy is an option to consider. Do not fall into the trap of the false belief that there is nothing left to do to improve your fate. Whenever looking for outstanding results, try out of the ordinary approaches. Dare to think outside the box!
Hypnotherapy has evolved considerably since Dr. James Braid described it in terms of medical approach, in 1843. Nowadays, there are several types of hypnotherapy whose philosophy and results differ considerably. Thanks to its customized approach, somatic hypnotherapy can help you break free of various unpleasant feelings that keep you trapped in your past and prevents you from living in the present moment. Somatic hypnotherapy can help you significantly improve your unwanted feelings such as stress, anxiety, traumas, phobias, grief, guilt, shame, pain, as well as unwanted behaviors, addictions, insomnia and mu ch more. With time and experience, the principle of "no results - no pay" has become the guarantor of the seriousness and ethics of my work and applies to all my therapies.
Although in everyday conversations the words “fear”, “stress” and “anxiety” seem to be interchangeable, for the sake of academic rigor and linguistic hygiene, I must say that these words do not have the same semantic or academic value since they describe different feelings, with a different neurobiology. A fearful reaction to a real danger, in real time and as long as the reaction is proportional to the danger, is called fear. When the fearful reaction is unfounded, disproportionate or time-shifted, the reaction is called stress. When stressful experiences of the past are projected into the future, the fearful reaction induced by the anticipated fear of a future negative outcome is called anxiety. Fear is an innate emotional response that is not only helpful, but essential to survival. Persistent or intense stress and anxiety are negative, toxic and energy-draining feelings.
Improving stress and anxiety is at the core of my approach because not only are they an exponentially growing epidemic, but persistent or very intense stress and anxiety have a negative impact on many health and wellness issues. Unfortunately, discouraged by their unsuccessful attempts to reduce their stress, many people will fall into the false belief that emotional stress is unavoidable because it is caused by everyday life stressful events that are beyond our control. Yet, people living under similar stressful conditions of traffic, work, finances, health and family, won’t experience the same level of stress and anxiety. This is because no one passively undergoes the facts of life. It is up to us to evaluate them, to make sense of the facts of everyday life and perceive them as stressful, traumatic, emotionally neutral or joyful events.
Stress, anxiety and other unpleasant emotional feelings are the outcome of disproportionate or unhealthy emotional responses to life events. Disproportionate emotional responses are very difficult to handle by the rational mind alone because they stem from patterns of emotional reactions stored in the subconscious mind. Although the process of conscious learning of a certain reflex, habit, or emotional response may require a long and sustained effort, things can go in no time for the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind needs only a split second of a situation perceived as life threatening, dangerous or very tensed, to learn an unhealthy emotional response. The good news is that by using the right approach, the subconscious can unlearn the disproportionate or unhealthy emotional response patterns as quickly as it has learned them.
According to contemporary scientific models, emotions are complex experiences leading to coordinated changes across mental, somatic (physical), physiological (hormonal release) and behavioral response systems. Thus, an emotional response pattern always has a cognitive component, which is the meaning the mind makes out of emotional feelings, a chemical (hormonal) component and a bodily feeling, called somatic component. Since these manifestations are coherent, you can control your emotions by controlling either the physiology (chemistry) of your brain, the thoughts that caused or have been caused by the emotion, or by controlling the emotional feelings. While cognitive approaches focus on the cognitive aspect of emotions, hypnotherapy focuses on feelings.
Unlike conventional approaches in hypnotherapy that aim to help you "learn" new patterns of positive emotional responses, somatic hypnotherapy aims to help you "unlearn" your unhealthy emotional patterns. Thus, while conventional hypnotherapy focus on adding successive layers of positive feelings on top of persistent negative feelings, somatic hypnotherapy aims to help uproot the unwanted negative feelings, thoughts and behaviors. As a matter of fact, the quickest and most natural approach to rebalancing a diseased living system is to eliminate the imbalance factors rather than adding new elements in the hope of regaining balance and health.
That's why my pragmatic approach is to help you identify, evaluate and overcome your unpleasant feelings, as you wish. While under somatic hypnosis, the moment your subconscious mind agrees to break with the unpleasant feelings of the past, your new emotional reality takes place and you will clearly feel that there are no more unpleasant emotions associated with the events we worked-out. Right after your somatic hypnosis session, you'll feel as if your heart has eased or completely forgotten the stressful, anxious, traumatic or painful component of the unpleasant events of your past, while your cognitive memory keeps intact the factual details.
Although it is little known on the North American continent, somatic hypnotherapy is very popular in Central and Eastern Europe. With somatic hypnotherapy you won't undergo a passive script therapy. The beauty of this approach is that I’ll assist you in the process of self re-arranging the perception of your reality. Your subconscious mind will submissively respond and follow your instructions. I will be there for you, mostly guiding and assisting you throughout your process of change. Thus, you will become the craftsman of your own change.
My promise is that you’ll experience a significant improvement in your issue right after your first session of therapy, provided that the issue you want to work out is within my area of expertise and the somatic hypnotherapy is your therapy of choice. With the right therapeutic approach, good results always appear immediately, such as the immediate improvement after the treatment of a venomous snake bite with the right anti-venom.
This innovative approach to health and well-being is so effective that not only you will be able to solve several interrelated problems during the same therapy session, but you will assess your good results on the spot, throughout and mainly at the end of your session. The only "magic" ingredients of such a spectacular change are the talent of your hypnotherapist, his know-how and your willingness to change.
