How Hypnotherapy can help Relationships

As human beings are social beings we have many relationships starting with our family of origin, friends, our partner/spouse, and into the wider circle of people, we encounter throughout our lives. Relationships are complicated and most of the time we strive to make them work but when any relationship breaks down it can be devastating with long-lasting trauma for individuals involved.

The Holmes And Rahe Stress Scale was compiled by two researchers in 1967 who combined the medical records of over 5,000 patients to see if there was a connection between illness and the most stressful life events. The death of a spouse was number one on the list and a marriage break up the second most stressful event in someone's life. Medical science has shown that unresolved trauma can lead to the onset of illness. Breakdown of marital communication and breakups can leave the person grief-stricken and facing huge fear of the unknown. So finding coping mechanisms to get through broken relationships to rebuild lives again is essential to the physical and mental well-being of an individual.

The best long-lasting relationships are built on mutual respect, trust, and open communication. As people, we grow and change year by year, the person you married in your 20’s or 30’s is very different from the people they are 20/30 years later. So how do some couples last the test the time and others don’t. It boils down to each individual person and how much they are willing and want to invest in their relationship to keep the love and the intimacy alive. Growing closer as the years go by and not further away from each other takes commitment and effort on both parties. A relationship is built on two people, with their own personality, ideas, thoughts, and feelings which need to be met and understood by their respective partners.

Hypno psychotherapy can help you with all kinds of relationship issues from resolving marriage issues, finding the right partner, coping with the emotions of a breakup and helping to heal broken hearts. If this sounds like you, then you could benefit from Hypnotherapy.

What does this mean? Hypnotherapy will help resolve deep-seated issues from the past, creates self-love to focus the mind to achieve fulfillment in intimate relationships. Hypnotherapy works on a number of levels. Firstly, working closely with each individual to explore the deeper mind, whereby, exploration of the past can help reveal any recurring patterns of behavior where hypnosis can move you forward from the endless repeating of certain negative behaviors. In Psychoanalysis the aim is to resolve any past trauma and work with issues that present themselves in each session. A number of sessions vary depending on circumstances but are limited to a maximum of 8-12 sessions. Its solution-focused and therapy brings huge awareness to the person as they can see and hear their own patterns of behavior for themselves and in that awareness brings permanent and lasting change.

As humans, everything that has ever happened to us is stored in our unconscious mind. We have a huge memory bank and if an unpleasant event happened and it is repressed, even though we have forgotten about it, this can have a negative effect on us in our present-day lives. The endless cycle of being continuously triggered into a negative emotional state and projecting this unto our partner can have devastating consequences over time. Until that trauma is resolved it will continue to happen. So for example, if someone had a negative sexual experience in the past that remained unresolved emotionally, it might lead to sexual problems in a current relationship. This would have a knock-on effect on a relationship and neither party would know what the real reason is for lack of intimacy and would usually end up in a range of upset emotions where communication eventually breaks down. As a therapist, I work with the person on healing the past trauma while building self-love, self-esteem, and self-confidence to live a more fulfilling life where they are free from the binds of the past. In this, a lot of inner child work is done, as it's important to connect with the younger selves to integrate and work through issues around childhood.

People need to get to know themselves. I am also a yoga teacher and the aim of Yoga is Union with self. We need to get to know ourselves and from that place, everything changes around us.

By building a realistic vision of what individuals want and need from a relationship, learning how to create fulfillment between you and a partner. Relationships are about two people, where the needs of both have to be heard and respected. An unselfish giving to the other's needs if worked both ways create a beautiful and harmonious sharing of love and intimacy where neither are taken for granted and unappreciated.

Whether you are in a marriage or a relationship and feel you are struggling in it, or you are single and looking for the perfect person for you, Hypnotherapy will focus your mind and release any negative blockages around love and relationships stemming from past experiences. Unresolved trauma that may be buried deep in the unconscious is stopping you from living life to your fullest potential.

After Hypno Psychotherapy, psychoanalysis you leave armed with self-confidence, self-awareness, and a clear vision of what you want to bring into your life. One of Napoleon Hill’s famous quotes is this one: “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve.” Focus the mind on what you want and watch it happen.
