Newcastle Hypnotherapy offers help and coaching to assist you in finding freedom from your anxious thoughts.
The trouble with anxious thoughts is they are very difficult to stop and they are just about impossible to stop with other thoughts. After all how do you stop a cloud with a cloud or a wave with a wave?
Anxious thoughts, when they run wild, changing how you feel, yes thoughts can change your emotional state, are usually non-conscious ways of trying to discover solutions, ways out of problems that may even be unsolvable.
There are lots of wonderful ideas such as mindfullness and lately three principles that advocate a psychological approach to a solution. Sometimes a person actually get’s the concept of ‘just thoughts’ more often than not you don’t.
Approaches like Buddhism or Avedavidanta are life long practices where some form of Yoga ( Hatha or even Raja ) are essential aspects of doing more than just psychological development. They are, at least initially, effortful practice.
Hypnotherapy Newcastle for Anxiety is more than a quick fix. You will need to address the behaviours that are creating anxiety and will require effort to create new habits and also to drop problematic habits.
We live in a technological age, where many people are wanting a quick fix to everything. And you have to check your own honest experience here, it usually doesn’t happen that way no matter how many self books or online apps you have. At least not for the real problems you face in life.
If these quick fixes or ‘life hacks’ ( I hate that term ), which are essentially effortless, really worked, for instance the UK governments appalling diet advice to combat obesity and metabolic syndrome, we would be seeing real change in peoples wellbeing, mental health and positive human interactions. We are not.
Trying to pause, stop and change negative anxious and stress causing thoughts with a positive ones is challenging at best. Getting the concept, ‘its just thoughts’, into practice takes a kind of committed effort. Making changes with concepts alone and missing the practical experience seems doomed to fail.
You are much more than your thoughts. You are your behaviours ( which may include thoughts ), your relationships and your environment. You are a very complex system of interactions and drives and importantly habits.
To get help and assistance making changes to anxious thoughts with Newcastle Hypnotherapy you can consider making changes in both your environment and your behaviours gives a great deal of scope to discover yourself what works best for you. This is almost certain to include stopping certain behaviours in specific environments.
If you take a careful and critical exploration of your habits and environment, you could find as an example that you really have no need to check your phone anywhere as much as you do. Phones are designed to grab your attention, to make you dependent on them, in my opinion addictive. They also steal your time from many interactions you could be having. Do phones create long term unhappiness?
Finally it is valuable to consider the anxiety inducing problems. These seem to me to be about a lack of doing and a lot of overthinking and overplanning. We all know the concept or definition of happiness but how many people are doing what makes them happy, its certainly not sitting with anxious thoughts.
So there may well be a huge value in doing as opposed to thinking when it comes to changing anxious thought patterns with Newcastle Hypnotherapy where change is likely to be effortful, paced and not without fun.
