Providing clarity in difficult times
Sallie Shaw Therapy provides a time for you to re-evaluate your current situation using a combination of coaching, hypnotherapy and mind mediation. You can declutter your mind, resolve issues, relax and move forward.
Anxiety and Stress
Anxiety and stress can affect us both physically and mentally. Hypnotherapy can help you to find new ways to deal with potentially stressful situations. This is achieved by looking at how you feel and respond to problematic situations and triggers. During the relaxed, focused state, that hypnosis brings, you have the opportunity to replace unhelpful responses with more beneficial alternatives. You can be in control, feel light when before you felt panicked and weighed down.
Relax and Resolve
Hypnosis is a wonderful way to explore a dreamlike world of fantasy and luxurious relaxation. All relaxation therapies start with deep breathing which helps us to switch off our busy minds. Some of the therapies guide you further into a deep relaxation by focusing your attention on the muscles in your body. Then we are ready to take a visual journey.
For many, chronic pain causes considerable distress, immobility and fatigue. Lower back pain is the most common, and a major cause of disability around the world. But there is hope. Hypnotherapy can reduce or eliminate chronic pain; that is pain for which the original cause has healed.
Phobias and Fears
We all recognise that phobias are irrational, but unfortunately that doesn’t prevent us from being paralysed by them. These reactions to certain places, things or animals usually start as a useful response to a difficult situation. Frequently the experience relates to when we were very young. Perhaps a parent reacted dramatically in order to protect you? Or maybe your own imagination perceived a greater danger than was actually occurring? For whatever reason, your unconscious mind has been keeping hold of an extreme fear that is no longer useful to you.
Nail biting, hair twiddling or pulling and drumming ones fingers are a few examples of unconscious habits. These range from being mildly annoying to bordering on self harm. They are all things we do without consciously thinking about them. They may have been learned from an early age, they may have developed as a coping mechanism for stress, or be a combination of the two. With the help of hypnosis unwanted habits such as these, can be changed for the better.
