World Mental Health Day

This is an opportunity to invite you to think about your mental health and how it can affect your relationship with other people you love.

When I started treating people with mild depression and anxiety, I came to a realization that most of the clients had few common complaints. They were all complaining about their relationships with their partners/bosses/parents. The relationship was not working and they thought that something had to be done in order for them to feel better in life. It turns out their mental health was the issue and not the relationships.

Surely you might think that sometimes other people can change their behavior or at least the way they respond to us, but it turns out we are the ones who determine how others behave towards us. If we say always yes, we don’t know how to set boundaries and have low self-esteem, and low confidence turns out humans can sense all of that and it is easier for them to manipulate the situation.

Of course, you might say, and how do I change all that? well, there is no magic pill, it all starts with you.

Firstly we have to understand that the way we think is not the same for everyone around us. We are all unique in a way and have unique ways of processing thinking and deciding. Understanding that you are unique is fundamental to making logic around the world. If we all had the same parents, same teachers, friends, and experiences in life we would still be different. Imagine 2 children from the same family. They both had the same parents, but they are so different from each other, and that is the blessing that we all carry in this world. We all have unique gifts to give to the world.

So moving now to the next on the list that is to find a purpose in life. How? you may ask. Again the answer is within you. You have to identify your own skills and talents. usually, the easiest way to do this is to see what we do so much easier than others, without too much effort. If you can identify one congratulations! You now know one gift that you have and can use to help the world become a better place!

And of course, I will also include some tips for general well-being.

Number one on the list starts with sleep. Sleep is the number one priority you have to make on your list to improve your mental state. Improving the quality of your sleep can dramatically improve your mental health. Aim for 7-8 hours of uninterrupted sleep each night!

2. Social media. What we see on social media it is far from the truth. The way people present themselves is actually not very accurate on social media and that is something you need to make a note of. You only see a snapshot of their day. Most individuals are using social media to promote their businesses. This is something most of us are unaware of unless you had some marketing class!

3. Exercise and food choices! Okay, I know this you probably heard it many times. But it is crucial for your mental health. How often you exercise and what foods you eat can play a role in your mental state. Avoiding processed foods, and increasing your intake of whole foods, fruits, and vegetables alongside protein is another way to improve your mood! Omega 3 from fatty fish has proven to be the number one food choice that can have a positive effect on your happiness!

4. Caffeine! Yes! That’s right! If you are overdoing caffeine it can have the opposite effect that you desire. The mental clarity that you crave from caffeine can turn to anxiety and panic attacks and that will have an effect on your mental health. Limiting your caffeine intake daily can help you achieve high-quality sleep and also become more productive as a result of that!

5. Your Social Life! Being too restricted with work can have a negative impact on our mental health. You have to make sure that your social life is on the list of your priorities. It’s all about balance! Meeting a friend for a coffee, going to a gathering, and exchanging ideas is an ancient activity that humans have used to express themselves. Turns out that this habit can increase your overall happiness! Finding people that you enjoy spending time with and making you laugh is the secret!

That’s all for today. I wish you start looking at ways to improve your mental health and start with you!

And don’t forget, when things are not easy, you may need a little help from a professional. That is ok too!

With love,

Hypnotherapy for Anxiety

For many of us, the term Anxiety sounds very familiar. We hear it every day, on the TV, on buses, on trains, and when talking with our friends and colleagues.

Surely we think we understand what they are talking about when someone says I have Anxiety or I feel Anxious. The truth is that we all understand this in different ways. For someone, it might be just rushing thoughts, headaches, or lightheaded, for someone else could be a pain in the chest and for others a loss of appetite or interest in activities. Anxiety has many different faces.

The problem starts when Anxiety interferes with our daily routines, quality of life, and pleasure in general. Often people who come to see me complain of sleepless nights and palpitations without a conscious understanding of it. This is where Hypnotherapy comes in and helps individuals deal with the unconscious response of their bodies.

Hypnotherapy has proven in these studies an effective treatment for Anxiety and Stress. Although some people don’t quite understand how it works, the truth is that when the results come they feel amazed by the speed and efficiency of the therapy.

If you also suffer from Anxiety, stress, or insomnia, why wait? You can contact me, send me an email at [email protected], or phone at +447586755862 now and discuss how I can help you overcome your Anxiety for good.

Yes, Hypnosis Really Can Treat Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Using gut-directed hypnotherapy to treat IBS can have long-lasting benefits.

When you have abdominal pain — and bathroom issues — wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could send your digestive tract soothing messages?

U.S. medical centers have begun to do just that — using “gut-directed hypnotherapy” to treat irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and ulcerative colitis.

They’ve been looking especially for a new option to treat IBS, as up to half of IBS sufferers are dissatisfied with the results of standard medical management, and continue to have frequent symptoms like diarrhea, constipation, bloating, and sharp stabs of pain in the abdomen or continual aches.

For Anna*, IBS symptoms had become so unpredictable she was afraid to book trips. “When I filled out my symptom checklist,” she said, “I broke down and cried. I realized how much IBS had taken over my life.”

Nine months after completing an online hypnotherapy program, metaMe Connect, Anna says she’s returned to “normalcy.” She’s now able to plan ahead without worrying that she won’t be well. “I don’t have fear and I don’t make decisions based on fear,” she said.

A new option

Gut-directed hypnotherapy is a form of hypnosis. Patients meet in person or by video-conference with a therapist, or listen to recordings that guide them step by step into a relaxed state.

Once patients enter the hypnotic state, they are taken through visualization exercises and hear suggestions designed to calm their digestive tract and wean them away from focusing on gut sensations.

Unlike a meditation tape anyone might pick up, this therapy has been standardized and tested — a key reason it has won acceptance from gastroenterologists at major hospitals.

More than 20 years ago, clinical psychologist Olafur Palsson, PsyD, at the University of North Carolina, in Chapel Hill, began using a specific set of scripts in a protocol that now has been studied extensively.

From 53 to 94 percent of IBS patients responded to the treatment, depending on the trial, with benefits lasting as long as a year.

The therapy addresses a problem that seems to accompany several gastrointestinal ailments: miscommunication between the gut and the brain. The smooth muscles of the intestinal wall can be hyper-reactive, altering the normal patterns of muscle contraction. Additionally, the brain can also be misinterpreting normal signals from the gut.

This disconnect between the gut and the brain can trigger the many possible symptoms of IBS — and play a role in other problems.

Recent early research suggests, for example, that hypnotherapy can prolong remission in colitis patientsTrusted Source and soothe unexplained chronic heartburnTrusted Source.

Hypnotherapy has been found to be most effective with abdominal pain, cutting it by an average of half or more in many studies.

“This is not a psychological issue, it’s neurological,” observes Daniel Bernstein, who has Crohn’s disease and who launched metaMe Connect. “You are retraining how your brain and gut communicate.”

When does a sensitive gut need treatment?

Many people struggle with digestive symptoms but never mention them to a doctor. It’s common to try many remedies on your own — probiotics, avoiding spicy foods, or going gluten-free.

But after one or two close calls of barely making it to the bathroom, people begin to rearrange their lives to avoid crises.

Anna’s experience of growing fear is common.

“The things I was trying weren’t working, and it seemed to come out of nowhere,” she explained.

Over time, and especially in periods of stress, that fear makes the problem worse.

Getting a diagnosis is a step to effective help. To diagnose IBS — which is estimated to affect up to 15 percent of American adults — doctors look for these signs: at least three months with frequent abdominal pain that is relieved after you defecate and that originally began with a change in the frequency or quality of your stool.

IBS also tends to follow a stomach flu or round of antibiotics.

Blood in your stool, weight loss, fever, or anemia suggests other possible diagnoses. You should be checked for an autoimmune problem like Crohn’s, colitis, or celiac if you’re experiencing these symptoms. You may also want to have a radiologic test of your abdomen looking for growths.

By definition, IBS does not have one clear cause. But new science has been suggesting possible factors like genetic variations and altered gut microbiomes for subgroups of patients, Palsson notes.

One of the more common treatments is the low-FODMAPs diet, which rules out many vegetables and fruits as well as gluten. FODMAPS stands for fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols, all molecules in food.

In a 2016 studyTrusted Source, gut-directed hypnotherapy matched the results of the low-FODMAPS diet. This is welcome news for IBS patients since it clears a potentially easier path to eventually enjoy a broader, healthier diet.

How it works

The program takes three months to complete and requires daily attention. Patients receive a 15-minute recording to listen to every day, or at least five times a week.

They also have seven 40-minute sessions with a therapist (either in person or in a video conference) at two-week intervals.

During the sessions, listeners are invited to an imaginary setting and asked to visualize a number of images such as a mountain cabin with thick and strong walls that “allow you to be comfortable and at ease inside no matter how ferociously the winter storms blow outside.” They’ll also hear reassurance in the scripts that they don’t need to be successful at visualizing, just to experience what they can.

The scripts do not address diarrhea or constipation or any other symptom directly. Instead, they describe the goal, with suggestions such as: “You become more comfortable and healthy every day, undisturbed and peaceful inside like this beautiful secluded garden.”

A hypnotic state doesn’t look strange to an observer, though it’s ideal to listen to the script in privacy, without any risk of interruption. After the trance, people are completely alert, so it’s possible to listen at any time of day.

Hypnotherapy can work for children, too

The imaginary play makes the program seem ideal for children with digestive trouble, typically unexplained abdominal pain.

Colicky infants, toddlers with heartburn, and any child with chronic unexplained diarrhea or constipation, sometimes accompanied by nausea, dizziness, and pain may have IBS.

Working with Palsson, his colleague Miranda van Tilburg, Ph.D., developed a shorter protocol designed for at-home use by children ages 6 to 12.

These sessions invite listeners to float on a cloud, drift on the ocean in a gently rocking boat, or fly a magic carpet controlled by their minds. In shorter sessions, they go down a slide, swing on a swing, ride a sleigh on a snowy mountain, or bounce on the moon.

Because children often rub their painful stomachs or ask for heating pads, the kids’ tapes describe a brightly shining gem-like object with magic healing properties, which melts into the hand like butter, and can heal.

In another tape, children hear that their favorite drink applies a protective coating to their stomach, and each time they drink it, the coating gets thicker.

Six months after completion, more than 60 percent of children who went through this program had maintained their progress, cutting symptoms by at least half, the team reports, adding that “most children with both abdominal pain and headaches reported improvements in both.

Additionally, many parents reported improvements in sleep and focus at school.”

Separately, a Dutch teamTrusted Source concluded that after gut-directed hypnotherapy two-thirds of a small group of children with chronic IBS or stomach pain were at least 80 percent better almost five years later.

5 Ways to improve IBS

KEEP A FOOD DIARY

This will help you to identify any dietary triggers, typical triggers can include spicy foods, caffeine, alcohol, fats and fruits. You can use this diary to make initial adjustments to your eating habits. A food diary can also be helpful when discussing IBS with your GP or dietician. Don’t dive into a heavily restricted diet without professional guidance. Always seek the support of a qualified dietician, especially if considering a low FODMAP diet.

A point to remember: Gluten is a protein that will only cause issues if you have an allergy or coeliac disease. If you have a wheat intolerance, you will be able to tolerate small amounts of wheat. The same goes for dairy products – they only cause issues with your IBS if you have a milk protein allergy (rare) or lactose intolerance (more often). Some dairy contains very little or no lactose, so you can switch to these products.

FIND WAYS TO RELAX

For IBS patients, sleep quality is paramount. A good night’s sleep will help your body restore itself and give you the energy you need to face a new day, even with an upset tummy. If you often wake up too early, buy a silk sleeping mask – it works wonders! Go to bed at the same time and avoid blue light exposure too, it suppresses melatonin, a hormone essential for our sleep rhythm. If you must work at the computer, use blue light glasses.

One of the most effective ways to reduce your IBS symptoms is hypnotherapy. It is a form of guided hypnosis that helps you to address the brain-gut axis. Your brain and your gut are interconnected and receive the wrong messages, causing flare-ups and pain. Hypnotherapy addresses that. You meet in person or by video with a specialised therapist, who will guide you step by step into a relaxed state. It is most effective when it comes to abdominal pain- many studies showed it can reduce it by an average of half or more.

In the U.S., there has already been a change: Mount Sinai in New York, the University of Michigan, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, the University of Washington in Seattle, Baylor College of Medicine in Houston and Loyola University Medical Center and Northwestern Memorial Hospital in the Chicago area all offer or suggest hypnotherapy to IBS patients.

GET PLENTY OF EXERCISES

Regular movement will help your body digest food better and keep you – well, regular. Incorporate 30 minutes of daily exercise into your routine. That doesn’t have to be as hard as it sounds- you can simply increase your NEAT. Non-exercise active thermogenesis (NEAT) accounts for calories burned outside your typical exercise. That can be standing, walking, climbing stairs or reaching for that cookie jar (excluding the cookies eaten afterwards).

Thanks to our largely sedentary jobs, food deliveries and labour-saving devices, our NEAT has decreased substantially in the last few years. That’s bad news as it burns between 15- 30% of a person’s daily calories and keeps your body in shape. Here are some ways to increase your NEAT:

Take the stairs

have a little dance in the kitchen when your favourite song is on

stand and move during T.V. ad breaks of your favourite show

walk when talking on the phone

Put your tea bags up high, so you get a nice stretch in every time you reach for them

Get a standing desk if you work a lot in front of a screen

EAT THE RIGHT KIND OF FIBRE

You might already know that fibre is a non-digestible carbohydrate. Why is it essential for the body? It adds bulk to our diet and makes us feel fuller for longer. Fibre also helps digestion and can prevent constipation. There is strong evidence that eating plenty of it helps to lower the risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and bowel cancer. Yet, most of us don’t eat the recommended 30 g per day. Foods high in fibre include whole grains, vegetables (potatoes with skin are great) and fruits (especially pears, berries, melon and oranges). Nuts are also a good source of fibre.

Here comes the interesting part for those with IBS. There are two types of fibre:

Insoluble

soluble

Most plant foods contain both, but some foods are high in one type of fibre. Soluble fibre, also known as viscous fibre, absorbs water when ingested. It then creates a thick gel in the colon, and it is this gel that creates the feeling of fullness.

Soluble fibre is concentrated in beans, fruits, and oat products and is an excellent choice for most people with IBS. The American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) recommends taking soluble fibre supplements for people with IBS – try and see if taking these help you.

Insoluble fibre breaks down in the water and passes straight through the digestive system, helping to eliminate unwanted leftovers in the gut. It is typically found in the roughage of foods like fruit skins and seed husks. Foods such as beans and nuts, and grain products contain good amounts of insoluble fibre. It may make the pain and bloat worse.

As you know, IBS is not a one-size-fits all- some have problems with foods rich in insoluble fibre, and others with IBS have no issues with them. Even more, some foods high in soluble fibre, like beans, can cause problems for some people who have IBS.

That’s why a food diary (see above) is so helpful. Try taking soluble fibre supplements instead if you experience pain or bloating from certain foods.

DRINK LOTS OF WATER

Drinking more water has many benefits, no matter what your IBS symptoms are. Furthermore, water intake could improve constipation. If you suffer from diarrhoea, drinking more water will prevent dehydration. If you don’t fancy drinking only water, you can buy a mint plant from the supermarket and add a few fresh mint leaves daily. Ginger tea can also be an alternative. If you are going out, punches or beers are safe if they don’t contain sweeteners on the high FODMAP list.

Is Hypnosis Real? And 9 Other Questions, Answered

Is hypnosis real?

Hypnosis is a genuine psychological therapy process. It’s often misunderstood and not widely used. However, medical research continues to clarify how and when hypnosis can be used as a therapy tool.

What exactly is hypnosis? 

Hypnosis is a treatment option that may help you cope with and treat different conditions.

To do this, a certified hypnotist or hypnotherapist guides you into a deep state of relaxation (sometimes described as a trance-like state). While you’re in this state, they can make suggestions designed to help you become more open to change or therapeutic improvement.

Trance-like experiences aren’t all that uncommon. If you’ve ever zoned out while watching a movie or daydreaming, you’ve been in a similar trance-like state.

True hypnosis or hypnotherapy doesn’t involve swaying pocket watches, and it isn’t practiced on stage as part of an entertainment act.

Is hypnosis the same thing as hypnotherapy?

Yes and no. Hypnosis is a tool that can be used for therapeutic treatment. Hypnotherapy is the use of that tool. To put it another way, hypnosis is to hypnotherapy what dogs are to animal therapy.

How does hypnosis work?

During hypnosis, a trained hypnotist or hypnotherapist induces a state of intense concentration or focused attention. This is a guided process with verbal cues and repetition.

The trance-like state you enter may appear similar to sleep in many ways, but you’re fully aware of what’s going on.

While you’re in this trance-like state, your therapist will make guided suggestions designed to help you achieve your therapeutic goals.

Because you’re in a heightened state of focus, you may be more open to proposals or advice that, in your normal mental state, you might ignore or brush off.

When the session is complete, your therapist will wake you from the trance-like state, or you will exit it on your own.

It’s unclear how this intense level of inner concentration and focused attention has the impact it does.

  • Hypnotherapy may place the seeds of different thoughts in your mind during the trance-like state, and soon, those changes take root and prosper.
  • Hypnotherapy may also clear the way for deeper processing and acceptance. In your regular mental state, if it’s “cluttered,” your mind may be unable to absorb suggestions and guidance,

What happens to the brain during hypnosis?

Researchers at Harvard studied the brains of 57 people during guided hypnosis. They found that:

  • Two areas of the brain that are responsible for processing and controlling what’s going on in your body show greater activity during hypnosis.
  • Likewise, the area of your brain that’s responsible for your actions and the area that is aware of those actions appear to be disconnected during hypnosis.

Are there any side effects or risks?

Hypnosis rarely causes any side effects or has risks. As long as the therapy is conducted by a trained hypnotist or hypnotherapist, it can be a safe alternative therapy option.

Is the practice recommended by doctors?

Some doctors aren’t convinced that hypnosis can be used in mental health or for physical pain treatment. Research to support the use of hypnosis is getting stronger, but not all doctors embrace it.

Many medical schools don’t train doctors on the use of hypnosis, and not all mental health practitioners receive training during their years of school.

That leaves a great deal of misunderstanding about this possible therapy among healthcare professionals.

What can hypnosis be used for?

Hypnosis is promoted as a treatment for many conditions or issues. Research does provide some support for using hypnosis for some, but not all, of the conditions for which it’s used.

ResearchTrusted Source shows strong evidenceTrusted Source for the use of hypnosis to treat:

  • pain
  • irritable bowel syndrome
  • post-traumatic stress disorder
  • insomnia
  • depression
  • anxiety
  • smoking cessation
  • post-surgical wound healing
  • weight loss

What happens during a session?

You may not undergo hypnosis during your first visit with a hypnotist or hypnotherapist. Instead, the two of you may talk about the goals you have and the process they can use to help you.

In a hypnosis session, your therapist will help you relax in a comfortable setting. They’ll explain the process and review your goals for the session. Then, they’ll use repetitive verbal cues to guide you into a trance-like state.

Once you’re in a receptive trance-like state, your therapist will suggest you work to achieve certain goals, help you visualize your future, and guide you toward making healthier decisions.

Afterward, your therapist will end your trance-like state by bringing you back to full consciousness.

Is one session enough?

Although one session can be helpful for some people sometimes different people with more complex issues might need more sessions to address the root of the problem.

Can Hypnotherapy help me with Anxiety?

A lot of people are experiencing anxiety throughout their lives. Sometimes easier and sometimes not so easy to manage. Anxiety is a coping mechanism of your brain to keep you alert. This can happen for many reasons, although many times anxiety just co-exists with us we do not like the feelings associated with anxiety because it can make us feel uncomfortable.

For millennia humans used to live in nature, surrounded by trees and flowers. Nowadays we have moved to more civilized societies but our brains have not evolved so fast with technology and the new lifestyle we now live our lives.

We now have to manage a working schedule with a lot of stress involved, finance, career, relationship, social media, etc.. our brains feel overwhelmed and sometimes they give us the signal of anxiety when we are in a similar (life-threatening) situation but without any predators. 

Why someone has anxiety is very personal and there is no one formula that can solve everyone’s anxiety.  Now I will introduce you to the idea of inner search, creativity, and let go. Hypnotherapy and hypnosis can actually help you tap into your unconscious mind and reprogram any negative thoughts, situations, or habits that contribute to your anxiety. Hypnotherapy can also enhance your creativity and discover new ideas and create new patterns that will increase the sense of relaxation in your life. 

With Hypnotherapy you can of course get rid of your anxiety and stress, allowing your parasympathetic system to start working again at its normal rhythm and increase your overall well-being. 

I have worked online and in person with different people and from my experience anxiety is easily curable and requires very few sessions.

Hypnotherapy is a drug-free – pain-free alternative method to get rid of your anxiety with very minimal effort from your side. If you would like to learn more about how I can help you overcome your anxiety with Hypnotherapy just contact me.
