Feeling a lack of motivation can be a crippling thing. Many of us go through times in our life when we feel that we are going in the wrong direction but we cannot see any alternative.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a very positive upbeat form of therapy that lends itself well to working with people who want to make changes to their lives. Often the ‘stuff’ in our lives can cloud our decision making, if we are lacking motivation it might feel like we have no time or energy to make beneficial changes.
Neuroscience tells us that that there are areas of our brain that, for evolutionary reasons, can work against us when we seriously contemplate change. At the most basic level we are encouraged to keep doing the same things (again and again), our brain decides that what we have been doing so far has kept us alive! Now this would have actually been very helpful to our early ancestors when their very survival may have been assured by performing necessary tasks, you would not have been very popular if you had let the fire go out in those days.
However, we are not doomed to keep doing the same things over and over because we also have the ability to take intellectual control, which is generally how we make good decisions in life.
Neuroscientists have also confirmed that contrary to popular belief, the neurons in our brain do not remain fixed; in fact, we have the power to change the brain by building new connections at any age.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy uses these insights to assist people in discovering achievable goals, targets and solutions. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help us to overcome the negative primitive parts of the brain and improve our motivation by using the intellectual brain to gain control of our thoughts and feelings. We are able to work quickly and we would expect to see most people making real improvements after only 8 to 12 sessions. However, the speed at which we can work also depends on the commitment of the client to the process.
