Therapy comparisons

Fortunately, there are a myriad of successful treatment options available for various mental health concerns in the 21st century. But, as with everything in life, there is no one-size-fits-all remedy!
Because we are all unique individuals with distinctive experiences, histories & circumstances there is no single style of therapy suitable for every single person. For some people a Psychologist could provide the best results, a Psychiatrist could be beneficial for others, perhaps a Counsellor may deliver the desired outcomes for some & for others, Hypnotherapy could be the solution they've been seeking. It's about finding the right fit for you!

Mind Makeover Techniques Explained

Clinical Hypnotherapy

Hypnosis has existed since the beginning of time, is completely natural & is merely a state of focused attention or absorption

We can all enter hypnosis three ways -  in a naturalistic way, via self-hypnosis or through facilitated hypnosis. If you've ever become so absorbed in a book or movie that you're completely immersed in the characters & their emotions, or you've driven somewhere & can't recall the journey when you arrive, you have achieved naturalistic hypnosis or trance. And we've all done that! Many people have mastered self-hypnosis to alleviate stress or pain, to put themselves into a confident state of mind, to relax or even to achieve an important task. We actually allow our environment, beliefs & self-talk to self-hypnotise us each & every day - & not always to our benefit! And then there's facilitated hypnosis, which is what you will experience at Mind Makeover.  

Facilitated hypnosis will often feel as though you are in a deeply relaxed state while still being able to hear everything that's being said to you. Some people say that it's similar to having a daydream. But in this deeply relaxed state your subconscious mind is open & responsive to the positive suggestions being presented to it. For most people, the more you experience hypnosis, the deeper your trance state will become each time - subsequently allowing for even more transformative change.

The conscious mind is logical, it's where we think, where we rationalise, but it's not where our actions emanate from. Our actions, habits & behaviours are almost exclusively controlled by our subconscious mind, which is ruled by emotions & instinct, is the storehouse of beliefs & morals & has the foundational intention of protecting  us. And this is why hypnosis is such an effective therapy for providing significant, long term positive change - because it bypasses the logical conscious mind (that's not really in control) to communicate with the emotive subconscious (which is actually in control). 

And the outdated misconception that a hypnotist can make you do something you don't want to do is completely untrue. Your subconscious will negate anything that goes against your values, morals or ethics. But positive suggestions that will benefit you are accepted & acted upon.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming

NLP uses perceptual, behavioural & communication techniques to make it easier for people to change their thoughts & actions. It is a set of mind-tools, based upon transformational language, that was created in the 1970s as an alternative psychology. 

NLP is utilised by professional athletes, successful business people, renowned academics & master coaches worldwide to enhance both physical & mental performance. In a therapeutic context NLP is an extraordinarily effective method of changing the way people deal with problems, how they create solutions & to lift them from states of helplessness to empowerment

Many NLP processes work simultaneously with the conscious & subconscious minds but effectively implement change at the subconscious level.

NLP can be used to break phobias, change people's perceptions, increase confidence, reduce & eliminate anxiety, create healthy eating habits, as well as countless other wellbeing related personal change areas. It can allow you to adapt & thrive psychologically & emotionally. It is incredibly empowering, forward focused, positive & often works wherever other approaches or techniques have failed.

So, if you would like to take control of your emotions & become more confident, discover the owner's manual to your brain, become more optimistic & motivated, lose weight easily & sustainably, improve your self worth & generally enjoy a more pleasurable life, NLP may be your answer!

    Thought Field Therapy

    Thought Field Therapy (TFT) is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on energy fields within the body. It rapidly reduces psychological distress and negative emotions by balancing the bodies energy system, leading to natural healing and improved mental health. It has been successfully utilised in treating a wide variety of issues, ranging from anxiety to trauma, PTSD, addictions, weight management, stress and depression. 

    TFT is based on the premise that energy flows along pathways (meridians) in our bodies and when blockages occur in these pathways we experience physical and/or mental health issues. By tapping on particular meridians in a specific order, blockages can be released and health improved. This technique for decoding the psychological distress within our body's energy system was developed by Psychologist, Roger Callahan, in the 1980s and is the original version of tapping.  

    This therapy is a powerful technique on its own and when used in conjunction with Hypnosis and NLP, the impact of each modality is elevated exponentially.
