Our emotions are housed in the subconscious mind, felt in the body, and often run the show. Emotions are easily connected and expanded to other emotions due to old beliefs, behaviors and attitudes, chronic exposure to toxic situations and people, as well as exhaustion from overwhelm and depending on the longevity of our unconscious inner programs, patterns, and circumstances.
It is possible, however, to alleviate and often eliminate emotional responses that show up in unhelpful ways; I mean not just manage those emotional responses, but change them for the better by a proven methodical process of addressing each one independently. In other words, they may be interrelated, but have their own path within us that must be addressed to break the connections to other emotions.
On occasion, clients come in with the idea that one or two sessions can take care of many emotional challenges at once. This strategy is not recommended because it again creates overload for the subconscious and conscious minds creating an inability for true and permanent change at a deep level.
Therefore, for long term effective relief, it is best to take steps and work on each emotion individually (especially starting with core emotions that are often the underpinning trigger for being out of control emotionally that translate and trigger other emotions). Hypnosis is really about learning and retraining the inner mind to reinforce a new behavior and to literally rewire the brain (science today calls it “neuroplasticity,” i.e., to grow new neural pathways) so that new ways of thinking, believing, and behaving can actually take place on a more permanent basis….instead of continuing to get caught in the rut that can so easily become deeper and deeper over time.
No one wants to suffer and I don’t want them to either, but the work we do is not Hollywood Magic. Yet “The Covington Method” process has proven over and over again to work well at retraining our client’s mind and therefore their behaviors (with their participation and commitment to seek relief and willingness to change for their greater good).
Changing the mind makes changing behavior a lot easier…one step at a time.
Impatience is a common theme for many (we live in the “I want it yesterday world”). Remember, as Einstein said, “Too much is too much.” Know also that our struggles have most likely been happening for a long time.
Although hypnosis, hypnotherapy, education, and appropriate coaching can make huge headways into helping people change for the better, steadily moving forward is what works best rather quickly, permanent learning and retraining takes some time and participation!
Warning: if you are promised that you will become a new person in one or just a few sessions…..be skeptical! Not everything you’ve seen on TV is true. Change simply takes time, but hypnosis, hypnotherapy, education, training, coaching can help make it really work for the long term, and more quickly than virtually another other method(s).
If you don’t change, life won’t change for you. If you are counting on your self to do all the changing…well, how well has that worked for you? Successful people ask for help when they need it. You don’t have to struggle any longer and try to go this alone. We’re here for you!
Wishing you all the best,
