Relationship counseling and hypnotherapy. Relationships are important and meaningful part of our lives. Big chunks of our happiness and overall wellbeing depend on the relationships we share with our loved ones, friends, family, colleagues and the society we live in. Often this part of our life is quite challenged and we find ourselves in a blame game. We judge people while being caught up in anger and frustration and end up feeling helpless, lonely, guilty, betrayed and misunderstood. And so, it is understandable that much of our stress comes from our relationships.
The most important aspect of a relationship is communication. Communication is an ongoing process and whether we express verbally or not we are always in communication. Even silence is a communication of some understanding or emotion. In our interpersonal communications and when it comes to others, we are exceptionally tuned into words that are spoken, the body language we observe and the tone of the voice we hear.
When angry or frustrated, we too say things that we don’t mean, or we choose to stop talking completely. This is communication without awareness. The longer such a miscommunication continues, the bigger the rift becomes in a relationship. Whenever issues arise, it is advisable to seek professional help, or it could lead to affairs, betrayal, emotional separation and ultimately, even divorce.
Every relationship needs nurturing. A keen gardener would educate himself on what helps plants to blossom and grow and what makes a toxic growth environment causing the plants to be stunted and feeble. In much the same way, there are rules and guidelines for happy and healthy relationships. There are actions and responses in a relationship that could serve as either expansion boosters or as growth suppressors.
What is relationship counselling with hypnotherapy?
The hypnotherapeutic approach is different from any other relationship counselling method. The role, scope and impact of hypnosis in couples’ therapy is unquestionably valuable. Initially both the partners are invited to attend a session together. Subsequent sessions are continued individually and the last session is again conducted with both partners present.
The very first relationships we form are with our parents. As we grow up, we become conditioned by childhood experiences of our own early relationships and those that we observe around us. Naturally then, each one of us have our own unique beliefs about relationships, about ourselves and our partners. Subconsciously, it is possible that we hold negative triggers from our early years that guide our communication and behavior. Hypnotherapy is a powerful, effective method to bring up these subconscious beliefs and patterns to our conscious awareness. You begin to know who you are, what your priorities and values are and how can you effectively communicate them to others.
