Anxiety and the present moment…a contradiction.

If you are experiencing the present moment through your senses it is likely that you are not feeling anxious.

Anxiety is usually a thought about the future. Or perhaps a thought about the past that we call regret. But what about the present moment? Focus on what you can hear or what you can feel in the body and your mind will quieten down bringing down the anxieties as it quietens.

It is quite difficult to be in the moment and to feel anxious at the same time…try it. Notice that your mind will roam to other times and places but if you here and now you are probably feeling calm. Spooky eh?

The ideas behind mindfulness are quite a blow to traditional therapy which seek to do a lot of thinking about the past. For some it seems, it is the nature of our consciousness that is the issue and the source of our problems and not anything more than that.

How to be in the moment is a learned technique and not as hard as you think (joke).

Hypnotherapy To Build Confidence

Confidence to do what has got to be the first question a hypnotherapist has for the client. What does confidence mean to the client,what do they want to do with the confidence when they get it. These are important questions.

Changing the negative mindsets and ‘self talk’ is part of the process of building confidence as well as getting the encouragement of talking though your plans hopes and dreams with another person who is not a close friend or relative.

Getting comfortable with yourself and letting go of the fear of being arrogant or too strident is also an important part of feeling more confident.

Getting A Guarantee From Your Therapist

The main question that many clients have for the therapist is,will it work and what is the success rate?

In other words, what guarantee is there that your money and time will be well spent.

Let me answer that though the medium of video.

A level of service is the only genuine guarantee that a therapist can offer. Expectation of success is an important part of getting results but ultimately the power resides with the client as to how the therapy concludes. It may sound like excuses but its the truth.

Success rates are often published by therapists. These have to be taken with a big dose of salts. Any therapist’s personal success rate cannot be compared with clinical trial effectiveness due to the massive difference in the way the evidence is collected and treated. This is the reason it is considered unprofessional to publish one’s own ‘success rate’ because it cannot be properly compared to any other therapist or clinical trial in an accurate way.

The best safeguard for the client is to get a good sense of the therapist before starting therapy, to ask all those awkward questions and to have a clear sense what you are entering into. To ask about therapy methods,number of sessions and aftercare are all important issues to address before shelling out cash.
