Accepting Change Through Hypnosis

The Dictionary defines change as “an act or process through which something becomes different.” While this may sound straightforward, things can get a little complicated when it comes to actually accepting change.

Our entire life is defined by change. From the day we’re born, this ongoing process is happening all the time. From physical changes in our bodies and environment to changes in how we think and interact with others, as we get older, these changes can get very difficult to accept. We become comfortable with the status quo, refusing to let go of the things we’ve become familiar with, and this can lead to us resisting change.

The brain is a stubborn organ. Despite the infinite complexities of how the mind works, it still struggles to process and deal with change. Human beings have evolved to resist changes that we are not comfortable with or accustomed to – irrespective of whether these changes are good or bad for us.

Change is almost always associated with risk, and our resistance to change originates in our natural adversity to risk. For example, switching jobs may generate a better income, but we risk taking on new, unknown responsibilities we may not enjoy or be able to handle. A new partner might bring us excitement and happiness, but we risk regretting ending a relationship with someone we know intimately. And a different, improved diet may mean a healthier body, but we risk missing out on the foods we love.

Overcoming resistance to change is a process. It requires a concerted effort to accept the evolving nature of things and then learn to live with them. Many people think of change only when it has a significant impact on our future. In reality, the overwhelming majority of change occurs among the smaller things in our lives, and this is where we can use hypnosis to prepare our minds for significant changes.

Change at Home

Home is where the heart is, and any change here can greatly influence our state of mind. From parents dealing with a child heading off to university to a teenager having to move away from their friends, these changes have the potential to cause discomfort and anxiety. Death in the family and even the birth of a new family member are realities that we must accept. Dealing with this upheaval, however, can be challenging at best and overwhelming at worst.

Hypnotherapy allows us to identify and better accept these changes without letting other aspects of our lives interfere with this important process. At home, we trust and love our families, but when changes begin to affect our relationships with loved ones, we often find that we have nowhere to turn. Hypnosis is an effective method of dealing with the emotional stress caused by changes at home, allowing us to confront and accept them gently.

Change at Work

One of the most disruptive forms of change can occur in our professional lives. When our job security is threatened, we experience high levels of fear and stress, over and above the pressures of making a living and financially preparing for the future. Many jobs come with constant workplace changes in personnel, responsibility and station. While a change in seniority – like a promotion – may seem like a good thing, we risk failing in our new position or becoming overwhelmed by work.

Changing a job or career can be extremely high-risk, so many people simply remain in positions that make them miserable. However, this damaging unhappiness can be challenged through various hypnosis techniques that help us find the strength to choose our professional path. Through steady affirmations and positive thinking, patients can find the courage and motivation to make a move into something new and exciting.

Change in Health

The older we get, the more likely our bodies are to break down. This is a biological fact of life that affects every living thing on earth. So why do we resist accepting our physical limitations? Because of fear. With so much information about terminal diseases and illnesses peppering the internet, it’s no wonder we’re always living in a state of concern about our health.

So when our bodies start to show signs of wear and tear, we either ignore them or obsess about the state of our health. For hundreds of years, therapy has allowed people to explore and accept the changes in their bodies. By encouraging the mind to acknowledge our finite existence, hypnosis can foster a much more positive outlook on our future, unlocking our ability to accept these changes.

Accepting Change

While change is both difficult and important, it is a crucial and unavoidable aspect of life that defines how happy we are. We instinctively resist change, often without looking at the potential positive long-term effects it can have on our lives. Change is stressful and challenging to accept, but we can focus on using it to our benefit once we stop resisting it.

At Hypnocare, we work to assist our clients in accepting change beyond their control while managing the changes they have an influence over. Our therapists base their sessions and techniques on guiding the mind into a state that is open to change while using positivity and affirmations to reinforce our acceptance of it.

Change is unavoidable. How you handle it defines how easily you can overcome resistance to changes in life, work and health. Embrace the changes in your life with ease and in comfort with Hypnocare.

Here's what our clients have to say

Have been seeing linda for a few months now and has changed my life for the better greatly! I was sceptical at first but Linda made me feel so comfortable and she really is great at what she does My issue was with alcohol and no longer is an issue for me. Thanks again Linda

I was a habitual worrier. If all was ok my mind would search for the next problem. I came out of my second session with Linda and this had disappeared. I felt light. I had a realisation that whatever my situation, I had a choice. It was highly liberating and has persevered. I ended up studying hypnosis and have a new respect for what Linda helped me achieve. She's genuine and down to earth. Thanks Linda

Linda is a very experienced practitioner in the field. I feel very lucky to have had support from such a seasoned professional. Thank you for all you have done to help me progress Linda. It is much appreciated.

It’s been 8 weeks smoke free and the idea of picking up a cigarette is so unappealing I now sometimes wonder how I was ever a smoker. My skin is better, I'm not carrying around guilt every day, I don't stink, I'm not as anxious, basically I'm so happy it's all behind me and count my lucky stars I don't have to live that smoker life anymore. I think I was really ready to quit this time, and can't thank Linda enough for helping me make that happen. I didn't know if I had the strength to quit for good, but the session we did reminded me just how strong I am. Thank you millions and millions Linda, that one afternoon in your chair has changed my life and helped me kick a habit I've struggled with for over 10 years. Thank you so very much 🙏🙏

In 2008 I visited Linda in her Subiaco clinic to treat a psychological tick involving constant jaw clenching/clicking (probably around 200 times per day - for years). After just 1 session it stopped dead immediately - 100%. It has now remained a forgotten habit for 9 years... had I not gone to her, I would have probably developed an arthritic jaw by now!

Wow! There are no words that can really express my transformation after a few sessions with Linda. When I initially came to see Linda, I was suffering from anxiety and depression from a number of traumatic experiences I had been through in recent years. My anxiety and depression had started impacting my work, relationships and health. I averaged 2 HRS of sleep a night and sat on my couch every painfully stricken day, debilitated by everything that was going on. After my first session, I drove out of Linda’s office feeling light as a feather; I slept like a baby that night and signed up to a gym. By my 3rd session, I was comfortable with speaking to a group of people, I was sleeping regularly and had a huge motivation to go to the gym six days a week. Not only is my life on track, I am following my dreams. Things that I promised myself I would do one day, I am already doing. What stood out for me, was that Linda’s work taught my inner being to help myself, rather than rely on other people to help me find my way. Linda’s work not only instantaneously helped me, the effects of Linda’s work has unfolded over the last 3 months. Thank you Linda. You are truly a blessing.
