When you come to Mulberry Hypnotherapy for an initial consultation, we work with you to determine whether you have an unwanted habit or dependency. We would work with you to help you regain control.
Unwanted habits are easier to treat because they are behaviour patterns that are stored in the Hippocampus area of our brain and force us to repeat them over and over.
The sufferer will have little or no control over this, and failing to follow the habit or behaviour will cause anxiety and possibly a physical reaction, particularly when chemicals are involved but anyone can stop with the right treatment.
Unwanted habits can relate to a multitude of symptoms all the way through from nail biting to hair pulling to more serious conditions like excessive drinking or other substances.
Hypnotherapy aids in quitting by altering subconscious belief systems in the hippocampus and strengthening your resolve and determination.
The hippocampus is a part of our primitive brain that was crucial to our survival. Our survival needs are mostly met in modern life, but the hippocampus continues to act in the same way, learning behaviours that it believes are necessary for our survival and encouraging us to repeat them over and over.
It doesn’t have to make any logical sense to the hippocampus; if you survived the day before, it must be an excellent strategy for surviving the day after that!
At Mulberry Hypnotherapy, you’ll learn how to ‘switch off’ these hippocampus-stored behaviour templates and regain control of your life using solution-focused techniques.
