Creativity is the spark of ingenuity that provides us with the ability to think out of the box. It is a trait that is difficult to pinpoint, but it is apparent in works of art, well written novels and other forms of creative work. The importance of creativity within certain fields cannot be underestimated and it can become a serious problem, when someone who is working within a particular creative industry has a creative block and is unable to come up with new ideas for a project. Imagine a writer, who has been commissioned to write a book, who suddenly finds themselves in front of their computer screen unable to think of anything to write, or a choreographer, working with talented dancers, unable to think of a suitably stunning dance routine. The point is that creativity pervades our lives and for those who rely on it, for the profession, then having any form of creative block causes a wide range of problems that can effect their livelihood. What can cause problems with creativity? For one, it is a well known fact that stress affects creativity. Stress has the affect of diminishing our ability to think clearly in several ways that then has an effect on creative thoughts. Other forms of psychological issues such as depression can also adversely affect creativity and cause what is known as a creative block. The reasons behind a creative block can be much more complex and are not always evident. This is why many seek the help of a hypnotherapist to help them find the root cause of the problem. Hypnosis through hypnotherapy can help to unblock creativity. The key to a successful outcome is to find out what is causing the problem and eradicating it, as well as reprogramming the mind to stimulate new ideas and solutions. Hypnosis has the power to do this quickly and effectively. As with any form of therapy, a qualified hypnotherapist should always be used.
