Hypnosis for Guilt

We’ve all experienced guilt at some point. Sometimes it’s what we term rational guilt, which holds us accountable for our actions and allows us to decide our own moral compass and change our behaviour in a logical, mature and responsible way relative to who we want to be.

In many ways, rational guilt is part of what helps us to shape the people we become and it can be used positively to improve ourselves.

Irrational guilt, however, is more emotionally corrosive and as a result causes the individual the most problems. Long-held irrational guilt is rooted in the past and often derives from ‘Toxic Rules’ in childhood. It resides in our subconscious and becomes the driving force behind self-destructive behaviour.

It has the power to distort both the truth and our true feelings, locking us into the game of self-blame, acting as a defence mechanism against anger, sadness, hurt and pain.

And because guilt craves punishment either of ourselves or others or both, it needs to be resolved.

What is Hypnotherapy for Guilt?

Hypnotherapy for guilt is a therapeutic approach that aims to address and resolve both rational and irrational guilt. While rational guilt can be constructive and guide us towards positive behaviour change, irrational guilt is emotionally corrosive and rooted in the past. It resides in the subconscious and can lead to self-destructive patterns of behaviour. Hypnotherapy for guilt helps individuals identify and release long-held irrational guilt, allowing them to embrace the present and create a future free from the burdens of guilt.
