A new you ? What are your new years resolutions?

 


New blog added 3rd January 2016

A very happy new year to you. I hope Christmas was a truly wonderful time with many happy memories for you to take into this year. Trevor Wales hypnotherapy Solutions will be open again for business on Monday 4th of January at 9:00 am. For my hours of business please see the information on my contact page 

 

Have you made your list yet?

Remember,as you engage with your new years resolutions its not about discarding the old you and making a new you. Many people start each new year with a list of resolutions that they hope to achieve.Whilst starting off with good intentions after a few weeks of progress where change was beginning to happen things may start to get get sticky and the results may not be encouraging or they may even stop for a while as a natural plateau is reached. What happens next is that they get disheartened and give up.

If you really want to change something in your life you have to go through several steps and start by making a step by step plan and review it often. The first thing is to accept things as they are and to accept yourself as you are even though you may want to change and evolve. Dont discard the old you and write yourself off. Reinventing the wheel is never a good idea, but we can perfect it! its also important to factor in the fact that things may not go to plan and that it is a good idea to manage your expectations realistically so as not to cause disappointment. If you have prepared well and have a good plan in place, when those hurdles and challenges arise you are far more likely to succeed. Unfortunately many people dont make a plan at all, they think to themselves that they need to be a new person,that somehow that existing person is flawed in some way and not worthy. That is setting oneself up for failure right away.

Dont throw away what is already unique and precious, rather evolve and become that better version of you that you may want to be. Perhaps you want to enjoy being fitter and more active by quitting smoking or losing weight and eating more healthily or maybe you want to have more confidence .... Whatever it is you want to do Hypnotherapy and BWRT can help and it may just be the best thing you ever discover and give a chance to. 

Success

 

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will.

When the road you're trudging seems all uphill.

When the energy is low and the reasons to carry on seem few

and you want to smile, but you have to sigh.

 

When care is pressing you down a bit-

rest if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns, 

As every one of us sometimes learns,

and many a fellow turns about

when he might have won had he stuck it out.

 

Don't give up though the pace seems slow -

you may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than

It seems to a faint and faltering man.

 

Often the struggler has given up

When he might have captured the victor's cup;

and he learned too late when the night came down,

how close he was to the golden crown. 

 

Success is failure turned inside out -

the silver tint in the clouds of doubt. 

And you never can tell how close you are,

It might be near when it seems afar;

So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit -

It's when things seem worst that you must not quit

 

 Attributed to author Betty Rich of Wakefield, Massachusetts. who wrote the poem in her kitchen. Circa 1970

 

Don't re-invent yourself and throw the old wonderful you away, just be the best that you can be and grow and evolve.

How hypnotherapy can help with depression and self esteem issues. A blog about a clients journey from suicidal thoughts to wellness.

 


 

 

 

Suicide is a very difficult and taboo subject to discuss but in it is sadly more and more commonplace  in society these days and affects many people from all walks of life, both rich & poor, the well educated and the poorly educated.

 

There have been various preconceptions generated in the press and media about suicidal personality types over the years and some of those preconceptions were not always helpful seemingly creating stereotypes. However in recent years thankfully those perceptions have changed and most enlightened people understand that what happens to people on their life journeys can create the circumstances that lead to severe depression and suicidal thoughts.

Earlier this year I attended a short course run by ASIST which stands for applied suicide intervention skills training. This course was a very valuable course which looked at a very broad spectrum of circumstances and situations and trained attendees in how to intervene in a suicide situation to keep the person safe for now and moving forwards finding them the help they need.

As a therapist I work with a broad range of presenting issues but over recent years more frequently people are coming to see me presenting with #anxiety and depression. This year I have worked with three clients from various backgrounds and various parts of the country who when they came to see me and started therapy with me were suffering serious depression and were experiencing suicidal thoughts.  The backgrounds of the presenting issues were  varied, one was relating to long term marital troubles where they could see no way out ,another was surrounding isolation and family troubles and financial problems and another was a long term sense of identity relating to childhood abandonment issues and abusive relationships.  

 

This morning I received an email from a client who I began working with back in July. This person comes from a professional management business background and has gone through some dramatic life changes.  When this person came to see me they had already been suffering from a long term issue of loneliness, low self esteem and self worth and an identity crisis. This persons circumstances had led them to contemplate suicide and to make matters worse their GP they felt was completely unhelpful. That is when they turned to me. The journey in therapy was not always an easy one but slowly and steadily good progress was made and month by month both client and I have been able to see good improvements  using the therapeutic  evaluation tools that I use such as the ‘wheel of life’ analysis tool along with patient health questionnaire and general anxiety disorder scales.  The advantage of these tools is that it gives both client and patient an overview of how things are changing. The most important thing of course is listening to the client and taking on board how they feel and using somatic questioning to determine the quality , validity and depth of those answers which helps the client to really connect with themselves and understand themselves and judge whether those answers or how they feel reflects their own inner truth. The email this morning talks of feeling self empowered, feeling calmer and having a strong sense of self belief where they can step away from therapy and go forward into the world on their terms with confidence looking to lead and not follow and to believe in themselves once again.

 

To receive an email like this is very good leaving me with a very good feeling to have been instrumental through the use of applied solution focussed hypnotherapy to  able to help this person upon their life journey in making significant change and is further testimony to the power of good therapy and in particular hypnotherapy to help create positive inner change, all of this without the intervention of  anti depressants or drug therapy of any kind. 

Hypnotherapy is capable of creating real lasting change in all areas of life not just anxiety and depression.

Sailing the stormy waters of life. Are you prepared mentally,physically and spiritually?

Ask any sailor about the importance of preparation before a voyage and making good on the course they are sailing and they will tell you their wisdom and why it is so important.

When sailing for a destination one has to prepare both mentally and physically. A sailor will have assessed the weather and tide conditions and consulted charts for tides and obstacles. A decent sailor will have checked the preparedness of his vessel making sure all is well and in working order. Fuel, sails, flares, anchor, life preservers etc.   No sailor will ever set to sea without taking on board a compass, charts and everything necessary for a successful voyage.

Mentally a sailor must prepare for the journey too, making a good plan and having contingencies in place. Whilst sailing the sailor and crew constantly trim the sails and rudder to stay on course. One cannot expect to set the sails and hope that the boat will somehow end up at its destination. Indeed the chances of that happening are very low to zero in fact.  Sometimes an unexpected squall appears from nowhere or the wind drops completely and one can almost end up going backwards especially if the current is strong, strong tidal currents can knock the boat of course as can sudden wind shifts, other shipping can get in the way which may mean avoidance tactics to keep safe and on course...

And so it is in life too. There are obvious parallels which can be drawn in the journey of life with sailing. Plan well, have a purpose in mind, keep focussed. Keep your dream or purpose in mind and enjoy the journey but be prepared for changes. The essentials are a good chart, a compass and an understanding of the territory and the weather. Sometimes a storm may blow you of course and obstacles may stand in your way but just as a good sailor knows what to do and adjusts for the course accordingly, even if that means making for a safe harbour for a while to take a rest and take on necessary provisions and wait out the storm so too do we need to develop these qualities of courage, strategic planning, focus, commitment, determination and tenacity to succeed with our own life goals. The interesting thing is even people who believe they do not have what it takes to develop these life skills can through leadership coaching learn and develop these skills along with  the confidence to integrate them into daily life.

 

 

Using NLP techniques and Hypnotherapy the subconscious mind can quickly integrate and learn these success skills which leads to a more positive confident knowledge base in life skills and a more confident and enriched personality a quality of life.
