Hypnotherapy … Powerful … Quick … Life-Changing

Hypnotherapy for Trauma and Addiction

julia webpageConsider if healing and change are about more than talking about the problem… Have you ever felt like your problems are bigger than you are? If you don’t know how to heal, consider that you may need help to heal trauma and addiction. Hypnotherapy can be a powerful adjunct therapy because it can take you into a special healing state. If you never really recovered from a traumatic event or difficult childhood, healing and “resetting” may require you to go deeper than your everyday state of mind. Consider this … almost every culture in the world has a tradition of healing that requires the patient go deep into a healing state as part of recovery. If you are not sure how to do that, hypnotherapy makes it easy.

What if you’ve tried everything and haven’t seen much progress… when you’ve tried and tried without seeing results.  It’s is easy to lose hope and stay “stuck.” Don’t give up! Try something different! Most often clients try to “get rid” of their problem by trying to ignore it, deny it, hate it, minimize it or talk about it. These are techniques that rarely work, and if they do “work” often the problem seems to crop up in a different way.

Consider that you may need to try a different approach…  Often the problems you are trying to get rid of are symptoms of a deeper, core issue. Trying to fix the symptoms is the reason why so many people find change difficult. The truth is that present-day trauma- and addiction-based behaviors and symptoms are the system’s way of coping with unhealed trauma from the past.  Whatever approach you take, make sure it is going to help you heal at the core and not on the surface.

Addiction … what is it really and why is it so difficult to overcome? The first step to understanding and healing addiction is to acknowledge that addiction is a way to meet a valid need. It may be the only way you know how to find a feeling of freedom, love, acceptance, peace, connection. Pretending that addiction doesn’t work is a form of denial. If you didn’t get anything from your addiction, you wouldn’t be addicted. However, every person under the influence of addiction knows that it is a very ineffective way of meeting your real and valid needs.  It’s false gold. No matter how hard you work, how much you drink or drug, how much sex you have, how wonderful that romantic relationship is, how many video games you play, the terrible need under the addiction is actually getting stronger, and because these addictions don’t really fulfill the basic need, a vicious cycle of need and ineffective coping is created; it’s called addiction… and its motto isnever enough.” Learning how to meet your deepest core needs is the only way to take the power from your addiction. If you don’t know how to do that, it is time to explore and learn something new.

If you don’t know how to heal and change… make sure that you are doing everything you can to heal from trauma and addiction. Are you completing the steps that are required for healing and lasting change? Have you gotten to the core of your trauma or addiction? Do you know how to proceed safely? Conditions like PTSD and severe addiction can be treated but be sure to seek expert assistance before proceeding.

It takes courage to try and change, but real healing and change are possible! The first step is to find out more… call for a free consultation at (505) 204-5210 or email julirish@yahoo.com.
