When I started my career as a Therapist, I was always on the lookout for a model of therapy that was safe, effective and relatively fast. I wanted to find a way to work with clients that didn’t require endless costly hours of psychotherapy. I knew there was intrinsic value in talking therapies, for self reflection, support and awareness, but in terms of deep healing at a core level, I was unsure. In my own experience I know how enticing it can be to ‘talk story.’ Talking story allows you to stay in a safe, familiar place, without risking vulnerability, exposure and feeling those difficult challenging feelings that, let’s face it, we would all rather avoid.
We can go to great lengths to avoid feeling, from overeating, taking drugs, alcohol, drama, dysfunctional relationships and fast living. Our bodies can be in a constant state of fight or flight, causing untold stress, challenges to our self-esteem and wellbeing and in some cases, physical illness. Somewhere down the line, something has to give. You have to drive yourself pretty hard to keep one step ahead of any deep seated issue that has remained hidden up till now. However, these deep issues are never quiet; they are like old tapes constantly running their programmes in the background of your life. Erica Jong said “When you risk nothing, you risk even more.” I believe her. I believe there is profound value in taking the risk to delve into your feelings, into a new way of being and addressing difficult issues at a subconscious level. This is where those deep issues ‘hang out.’ The subconscious runs your life by default, and your level of self esteem, as you remain unaware on a conscious level. Your conscious mind is the part of you that likes to avoid, that can reason and justify allowing you to live in a state of denial. Therefore, your conscious mind cannot solely be relied upon to make significant and profound changes that will give you the relief and results that you deserve.
The way to by-pass the conscious mind and access the subconscious is Hypnosis, I also use Inner Child therapy for deep healing. I have helped hundreds of people using effective processes that deal with issues on a deep subconscious level, giving powerful and permanent results. Whatever traumatic event you experienced in the past, please know that there is a way out. When you take a risk, you open to new possibilities and opportunities.
Now, that has to be worth it.
