Most of us have at least one important relationship in our lives but none are without their own challenges. Relationships are complex because the human mind is complex. They can bring joy and happiness, or frustration and sadness when they begin to break down. It is our individuality that makes relationships so unique and, because of this, there is no ‘one size fits all’ treatment for relationships issues. In couples therapy and relationship coaching I use hypnotherapy as a powerful tool to prevent relationship breakdown.
Here are just a few of the ways this accessible treatment can help.
Drinking, smoking or drugs
Alcohol and other substance abuse can be a disaster for a person’s health and relationships. If you feel that what once seemed like a harmless vice is driving a wedge between you and your loved ones, it might be time to seek help. Once you are free to enjoy life without this addiction, you can start to reconnect with your partner and have fun again.
Many relationships seem strong until one or more parties are put under increased stress. Whether this is a new job, a house move, financial worries or a new baby, times of stress can wreak havoc on relationships. Hypnotherapy can help couples find ways of dealing with these new challenges and learn relaxation techniques. Once you are free of the physical and emotional demands that stress can inflict, there will be more time and energy to enjoy your relationship.
Jealousy and trust issues
Whether it’s our own insecurities or a partner’s misdeeds that triggers them, trust issues can be hugely damaging for any relationship. Hypnotherapy can help you get to the root of these problems and find new ways to start to trust each other again. Dealing with past pain or jealously effectively is vital for the health of any partnership.
Relationships can be difficult when one or more parties have a temper or anger issues. Anger is a destructive force that hampers effective communication. It can lead to fear, control and sometimes even abuse – not good foundations for a long and healthy relationship. Anger issues often stem from poor communication, past experiences or unspoken grievances, and hypnotherapy is the perfect tool to help you deal with these.
Self-belief and confidence
If one person in a relationship struggles with poor self-confidence or low self-esteem, it can be a strain. Do you avoid going out of the house because you feel anxious, worry about your weight or are nervous in social situations? Perhaps you just feel down or insecure? Whatever the issues holding you back, hypnotherapy can help. You could soon be back out enjoying date nights again!
We have only scratched the surface here. There are many other ways hypnotherapy could save your relationship, including help with toxic relationships or co-dependence, blame or guilt issues, improving communication, setting realistic visions and expectations, re-aligning values and exploring hopes for the future.
