Raleigh Hypnotherapy

hypnosis in Raleigh


Sometimes we all get a little stuck – stuck in old thought, emotional and behavioral patterns. It can leave you feeling powerless in finding a way out. Perhaps you’ve processed through different therapeutic modalities but feel there is just a little lingering something that is effecting the way you function in life. Maybe you feel ready to go to the next level.


You may feel stuck when holding unresolved emotional experiences from the past.  You have protective mechanisms around them that continue to cause us you behave and live the same way in present day. New experiences arrive and trigger what was unresolved beneath the surface of the conscious mind. Now, you find yourself experiencing the feelings all over again… the anxious feelings, grief, irritability, and more.  There is a way out!



Hypnotherapy near me

The key to developing a permanent shift in yourself is to learn how to transform the relationship you have with your emotional experiences and the world around you. You are going to have feelings, but how do you relate to those feelings when they show up? Do you notice yourself automatically distracting yourself or doing anything you can to not feel unpleasant emotional experiences? For example, some of the ways you might distract yourself from feelings of stress, grief, anger, overwhelm, anxiety and more are to overeat or eat unhealthy foods, shop, get online, watch TV, etc…  You might even find that you avoid engaging in activities you want to be involved in due to fear holding you back.  The actions of avoidance in an of themselves are not harmful but it is the intention behind them that matters. These intentions will either reinforce old behavior patterns or free you from them.


If you engage in activities as an automatic reaction designed to distract yourself from not feeling the feelings, those feelings frequently intensify and get stuck. You might notice you begin to feel anxious more often or more intensely. You might have pervasive thoughts that say, “I shouldn’t be doing this”, “I should be doing this”. Your inner critic kicks into high gear. These protective functions have a purpose. They are there, from their perspective, to help you “get it together”. They feel that if they can just get you to “do everything right” or “pay more attention”, that you will be safe. You needed these protections at one time in your life but they are no longer serving you.
