Relationship Hypnotherapy

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, couples around the world are searching for the perfect romantic gift, card, or gesture to express their passion and appreciation to their loved one. However, not all relationships are hearts and roses. In fact, most relationships experience their fair share of ups and downs, and trials and tribulations.

Whether it's a significant other, parent, close friend or another family member, our interactions with those closest to us can provide the greatest source of love and happiness. While successful relationships are the key to a joyous and fulfilling life, they can also cause problems and unhappiness when they break down.

Regardless of the nature of your relationship, everyone will experience relationship problems at some point during their life. While typical, these problems can seem overwhelmingly hopeless if they are not managed properly. Relationship hypnotherapy is an extremely powerful tool for working through relationship difficulties to generate positive relations with your romantic interests, friends, colleagues and family.

The Ups and Downs of Relationships

All relationships experience their occasional growing pains as they progress and evolve. However, when left unchecked, relationship problems will lead to animosity, resentment, and contention as they build up over time. An unhappy or toxic relationship can influence your happiness, as well as many other aspects of your life. In fact, individuals are much more likely to be fulfilled with other aspects of their life when they are in a happy, fulfilled, and positive relationships.

At the root of most relationship struggles is lack of communication. When one or both parties in a relationship are not able to express their feelings in an effective manner, it may place tension on the relationship. We all react differently to situations and emotions. It can be hard to know how, where, or why the initial conflict started to resolve the problem.

Applying Hypnotherapy to Relationships

Hypnosis is a natural state of deep relaxation and heightened awareness. In 1955, hypnotherapy was officially recognized as a legitimate therapeutic technique by the British Medical Association. Since then, hypnotherapy has become an accepted and celebrated component of traditional health treatment.

Relationship hypnotherapy is designed to help you to communicate with your subconscious in a more effective and productive manner. This will ultimately enhance your communication skills within your relationship. As you experience difficulties through the course of your relationships, you will become more adaptable.

With hypnotherapy, we engage the full 100% of our mind, which allows us to bring conscious awareness to the root of our relationship problems. As you meet with your hypnotherapist, they will speak individually with each person in the relationship to gain a better understanding of personal truths.

Once you have both spoken with the hypnotherapist, you'll meet with your hypnotherapist together to discuss the benefits of hypnotherapy and the plan for treatment. Both individual and couple sessions are designed to understand the root of relationship difficulties. They allow the clients, as well as the therapist, to become aware of all the facts to gain an overall perspective, integrating the two personal viewpoints and narratives.

Additionally, hypnotherapy will equip you with the tools to empathize and see alternative points of view. Ultimately, you'll gain greater proficiency to resolve future challenges and issues (should they arise again).

New Year, Healthier You - The Benefits of Hypnotherapy

A new year is upon us, and with comes the time honored tradition of New Year's Resolutions. Whether you have plans to lose weight, eat healthier, save money, sleep more, lower your stress levels, or want to stop smoking, you are not alone.

Every year, millions of people around the UAE and the world set out to transform their mind, body and spirit through their New Year’s Resolution. A series of studies, published in the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin in 2016, found that 55% of resolutions were related to health, and another 20% involved paying off financial debts. However, within the first few weeks of February, as many as 55% of people give up on their resolutions.

While this may sound a bit discouraging, there is help! The benefits of hypnotherapy have been proven to help individuals live healthier lives with long term results.

What is Hypnotherapy

Hypnosis is a natural state of deep relaxation and heightened awareness. In 1955, hypnotherapy was officially recognized as a legitimate therapeutic technique by the British Medical Association. Since then, hypnotherapy has become an accepted and celebrated component of traditional health treatment.

The only way to defeat a habit, fear or addiction is to rewire the brain and change the neural pathways which drive you to carry out addictive behaviors. Hypnosis directly affects the subconscious mind and changes your habitual patterns. For example, most smokers smoke out of habit rather than necessity (i.e. after a meal, on a break at work, or before bed). Most people overeat when they are sad, angry, or frustrated (i.e. comfort foods). In-office hypnotherapy sessions, combined with self-guided hypnotherapy techniques at home, help individuals change their thinking patterns, which will help you live a healthier life.

The Health Benefits of Hypnotherapy

Endorsed by both the British and American Medical Associations, hypnotherapy has a wide range of medical applications and benefits. Regular hypnotherapy sessions can transform an individual's life in many ways.

  1. Conquer bad habits with hypnotherapy- We all have a habit or two we’d like to change. Hypnotherapy helps to correct bad habits by addressing the negative underlying habits and subconscious messages which cause us to repeat our unwanted and unhealthy behaviors. With hypnosis, the internal urges that contribute to a bad habit can be replaced with positive messages for a healthier life. Hypnotherapy can be used to address a wide variety of habits, such as -
    1. Overspending
    2. Overeating
    3. Smoking
    4. Consuming controlled substances
    5. And more
  2. Hypnotherapy can improve physical and mental health- Science has established there is a powerful connection between the mind and body. Hypnotherapy helps patients capitalize on this bond to address the symptoms of a number of medical concerns, such as addressing and treating -
    1. Fears and phobias
    2. Anxiety disorders
    3. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
    4. Chronic Pain
    5. Insomnia
    6. And more
  3. Hypnotherapy can improve the way we think- A powerful ally, our mind can become our own worst enemy. Negative thought patterns and thinking can quickly undermine our daily life and happiness. Hypnotherapy works to engage the subconscious mind and can help change negative thoughts into positive thoughts.

Changing the way we think can be very beneficial to our health, leading to increased self-confidence, increased self-esteem, and increased belief in self-worth. Additionally, hypnotherapy can reduce feelings of worry, stress, and frustration.

Hypnotherapy - Tips for a Healthier You in 2019

With the new year just around the corner, it is time to start considering how you can progress on your journey to a healthier you. Hypnotherapy can help you on your path to a healthier mind and body.

What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is a set of techniques designed to enhance concentration, minimize distractions, and strengthen responsiveness to suggestions in order to modify an individual's thoughts, behavior, feelings, and/or physiological state. Research indicates that hypnosis works as part of a treatment program for a number of psychological and medical conditions, including pain relief and pain management.

Hypnotherapy typically takes place with the help of a therapist who will use verbal repetition and mental images during a hypnotic trance-like state. During this trance-like state, patients have heightened focus and concentration.

The Hypnotic State

The human brain has several types of consciousness, which range from drowsy and fully alert to fully asleep, with many variations in between. Hypnotic states can occur both spontaneously and naturally. Researchers believe that hypnosis promotes particular brain wave activity that "allows the mind to take in and adopt new ideas, while others suggest that hypnosis accesses the ‘unconscious mind,’ which is more open to new ideas than the rational ‘conscious mind.'"

Common examples of the various types of consciousness include daydreaming, becoming absorbed in a fun activity, losing track of time, and falling asleep. During hypnotherapy, a hypnotherapist deliberately induces a state of relaxed awareness. Once a patient’s mind enters a relaxed state, therapeutic suggestions can have a very positive effect on perceptions, attitudes, and behaviors.

Benefits of Hypnotherapy

The hypnotic state allows a person to be more open. Hypnotherapy provides an effective method for coping with stress and anxiety, as well as managing chronic pain. Hypnosis has also proven beneficial for other conditions, including:

  1. Phobias, fears, and anxiety
  2. Sleep disorders
  3. Depression
  4. Self-esteem management
  5. Stress
  6. Post-trauma anxiety
  7. Grief and loss
  8. Weight management
  9. Smoking cessation
  10. Pain management
  11. Addiction
  12. And more

How does Sleep Hypnotherapy Work?

You'll learn how to switch off your active mind before it turns into the troubling thoughts, anxiety, and stress that keeps you awake. Together with your hypnotherapist, you'll determine the areas of your life you would like to treat with hypnotherapy. Your hypnotherapist will also teach you how to practice self-hypnosis to aid your sleep.

Together with your hypnotherapist, you will also be given hypnosis specifically tailored to help you with your specific area of concern (i.e. insomnia, addiction, pain management, etc.). Additionally, learning the art of relaxation will help you on your path to a healthier lifestyle.

Hypnotherapy and Addiction – Can it Help Recovery?

Hypnosis is a set of techniques designed to enhance concentration, minimize distractions, and strengthen responsiveness to suggestions in order to modify an individual's thoughts, behavior, feelings, and/or physiological state.


Research indicates that hypnosis can be an effective tool in the early stages of addiction, as well as throughout the recovery process. By introducing relaxation therapy, hypnosis can help remove physical barriers to recovery, such as the body's symptoms of withdrawal, anxiety, muscle tension, spasm and pain. Along with reinforcing the commitment to sobriety or abstinence.

 

What is an Addiction?

In general terms, an addiction is something that you have no control over taking, doing, or using. What may start out as a small and perhaps harmless occasional habit can quickly become a behavioural pattern that can escalate over time. When left untreated, addictions can become more powerful and advanced, eventually interfering with and destroying your quality of life.

In addition to the commonly recognised addictions, such as drugs and alcohol, there are many other types of addictions that would benefit from addiction hypnotherapy, to include addiction to social media, gambling, pornography, food, eating disorders, and many others. Regardless of your addiction, if it's something you do regularly, is detrimental to your life, and is habitual, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

 

Overcoming Addictions

Hypnotherapy addresses the mind-body link recommended for individuals looking to conquer their addictions. Individuals suffering from addictions are in a continuous battle with their conscious mind to control and stop their harmful addiction. However, they fail to recognise their subconscious mind plays an essential role in whether they can free themselves from their addiction. Unfortunately, conscious willpower alone rarely provides an individual with the ability to overcome their addiction.

The only way to overpower an addiction is to re-wire the brain and change the neural pathways which drive you to carry out the addictive action or behaviour. Addiction Hypnotherapy works with the unconscious part of the mind and aims to get to the root of the problem by inducing a state of heightened awareness in the patient.

 

How does Addiction Hypnotherapy Work?

As you begin your addiction hypnotherapy session, you will focus on relaxing and letting go of distracting thoughts. This will help to temporarily tune out the conscious part of your mind, opening your mind to the power of suggestion. During this relaxed state, the patient is more receptive to suggestions and ideas that are compatible with their addiction goals and prolonged recovery.

At this point, your hypnotherapist will make suggestions and offer ideas to facilitate control over the addictive substance or activity -  helping patients to gain control over their addiction. Your hypnotherapist will also provide post-hypnotic suggestions, which will allow you to carry out self-hypnosis in between onsite sessions.

Pain Management Hypnotherapy

Working as nature intended, pain signals provide us with beneficial information. However, when left untreated, persistent pain negatively impacts our mental health and every area of life, including relationships, work, hobbies and interests. Typically, a variety of approaches are required to help lessen pain, improve independence, and to help cope with the emotional implications associated with chronic pain management. While pain medication can prove beneficial in the short term, they produce many adverse side effects and are not intended for use as a long-term solution to manage chronic pain.

 

Whether you’re dealing with transient or chronic pain, you may be able to use hypnosis as a natural, non-invasive approach to diminish or eliminate the need for pharmaceutical pain relief. Clinical hypnotherapy creates a natural bridge between the body and our mind. It provides individuals suffering from pain a non-pharmacological option for pain relief.

 

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a set of techniques designed to enhance concentration, minimize distractions, and strengthen responsiveness to suggestions in order to modify an individual's thoughts, behavior, feelings, and/or physiological state.

 

Research indicates that hypnosis works as part of a treatment program for a number of psychological and medical conditions, including pain relief and pain management. Perhaps the most beneficial aspect of hypnotherapy, as cited in by the American Psychology Association, is its ability to alter the psychological components of the experience of pain that may have a direct impact on acute, chronic, and severe pain.

 

How does Pain Hypnotherapy Work?

Hypnotherapy addresses the mind-body link recommended for individuals dealing with both acute and chronic pain. The way the mind responds to pain directly links to the perception of physical sensations. Over time, persistent pain can lead to stress and anxiety, which can make the sensation of pain more intense.

 

Hypnotherapy is designed to reduce stress and change the thought patterns related to pain, which has a positive impact on how the body perceives pain. Rather than persuading you that your pain doesn't exist, pain management hypnotherapy aims to help individuals control any fear and anxiety they may have relating to their pain. Additionally, it also helps to reduce stress and anxiety on the nervous system, which can help the body become less reactive to pain.

 

As you begin your hypnotherapy session, you will focus on relaxing and letting go of distracting thoughts. This will help to temporarily tune out the conscious part of your mind, opening your mind to the power of suggestion. At this point, your hypnotherapist will make suggestions to encourage pain relief. You will also be provided with post-hypnotic suggestions, which will allow you to carry out self-hypnosis in between onsite sessions.

Hypnotherapy to Treat Fears and Phobias

Many people suffer from a phobia in one form or another. For some people, their phobia can be mildly unsettling, but manageable. For others, when left untreated, their phobias can become seriously damaging.

Hypnosis is frequently practiced as an effective treatment for many individuals suffering from phobias.

 

What is a Phobia?

We are not born with fears and phobias. Our minds and bodies learn to associate a particular object or situation with feelings of anxiety, panic, and disgust.

Fear is a natural response caused by real danger, such as being afraid of wild animals or being mugged. It's also a survival instinct that warns us against certain objects or situations. On the other hand, a phobia is a completely irrational fear of an object or situation that typically produces little or no danger.

In many cases, phobias develop without a clear single traumatic event evident as the cause. For some people, a phobia can trigger panic attacks. In severe cases, a phobia can end up controlling a person’s life. However, you do not have to suffer indefinitely. When it comes to phobias, a reaction is unconscious. We do not consciously decide to react with fear or panic, it just happens.

Hypnotherapy is designed to treat phobias. Hypnosis connects with the unconscious part of the mind. It provides our mind with the tools to overcome our fear and phobias to create long-lasting improvements.

 

How Can Hypnotherapy Treat Fears and Phobias?

When hypnotherapy is used to treat a phobia, the initial goal of the hypnotherapist is to discover the underlying cause of the phobia. Typically, the phobia developed as the result of a traumatic event in a person’s life.

In order to access this memory, the individual participating in hypnotherapy must enter a state of complete relaxation. A hypnotherapist will apply techniques to help their patient become very relaxed and focused, known as a hypnotic trance. During this relaxed state, a person is receptive to suggestion, which is what opens the door to obtaining permanent relief from phobias.

 

The number of hypnosis sessions required to treat a patient suffering from phobias will vary from patient to patient. Treatment depends on several factors, to include:

 

1- How severely the phobia affects him/her

2- Maturity level and personality structure

3- How determined the patient is to be free from their phobia

4- The type, depth, and severity of the phobia

 

Annie Browne Phobia and Fear Hypnotherapy

Research demonstrates that treating fears and phobias can be achieved through techniques such as hypnosis, mindfulness, and relaxation. Annie Browne uses hypnosis and relaxation techniques to help her patients understand the underlying causes of their phobias.

 

Some of the phobias you can conquer through hypnotherapy include:

 

1- Fear of flying in small planes or large jets

2- Fear of driving on freeways, bridges, or being afraid to drive at all

3- Fear of public speaking

4- Fears associated with taking exams

5- Fear of animals or insects

6- White coat phobia (fear of hospitals or doctors)

7- And many more

Benefits of Hypnotherapy for Anxiety and Stress

Life can be hectic, and given the climate of our world, a little stress now and again is a common part of life. However, dealing with daily, recurrent stress can be detrimental to your physical and mental well-being. In fact, any level of anxiety has a significant impact on our physical and mental health. When left untreated, symptoms of stress can affect your concentration and focus, sleep, ability to fight infections, and seriously affect your body and health.

Fortunately, you are not alone. Anxiety Hypnotherapy is becoming a recognised method for reducing the feelings of anxiety. Hypnotherapy for anxiety can help boost confidence while reducing feelings of fear and constant worry. Hypnotherapy will help you develop the ability to access the calm state of mind required to overcome the often-overwhelming stressors and emotions in your daily life.

 

What is Hypnotherapy

 

Hypnosis is a natural state of deep relaxation and heightened awareness. In 1955, hypnotherapy was officially recognised as a legitimate therapeutic technique by the British Medical Association. Since then, hypnotherapy has become an accepted and celebrated component of traditional health treatment.

Stress and Anxiety Hypnotherapy concentrates on understanding and changing the patterns of behavior that trigger stress and anxiety. When left untreated, stress and anxiety can lead to a host of physical, psychological, emotional and behavioral problems. Common symptoms include:

  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Decreased self-esteem
  • Problems with attention and concentration
  • Insomnia and other sleep disorders
  • Physical aches and pains
  • Stomach complications (i.e., stomach ulcers)

How does Anxiety Hypnotherapy Work?

Anxiety Hypnotherapy will teach you various methods to relax quickly and respond calmly. Your hypnotherapist will also teach you how to practice self-hypnosis to aid your anxiety between sessions.

 

Suggestion Hypnotherapy

 

Anxiety Hypnotherapy leverages a relaxed hypnotic state to access your unconscious mind. This hypnotic state helps an individual better respond to suggestions. Therefore, hypnotherapy can help some people change certain behaviors, including how they respond to their stress triggers. It can also help individuals change their perceptions and sensations, which is particularly useful in treating anxiety.

Using the power of suggestion, your hypnotherapy is designed to promote positive changes to help you manage the causes of your stress and anxiety. These suggestions can be tailored to help you learn what triggers your anxiety and why, as well as how to change the way you react towards them.

Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy - Your Key to a Nicotine Free Life

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), “The tobacco epidemic is one of the biggest public health threats the has ever faced, killing more than 7 million people a year. More than 6 million of those deaths are the result of direct tobacco use while around 890 000 are the result of non-smokers being exposed to secondhand smoke.”

We all know that smoking kills you, and secondhand smoke can kill our loved ones. We also know that even if smoking doesn't kill us, it’s extremely harmful to our health and the health of our loved ones. Smoking and secondhand smoke is the leading cause for cancer, and heart disease, as well as a long laundry list of other harmful diseases and health ailments.

Yet, try as you might - you just cannot stop smoking.

You are not alone. Smoking is a bad habit and addictive. And like any other bad habit or addiction, it’s hard to just stop. Hypnotherapy can help you quit smoking and lead a healthier life.

 

Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy?

Hypnosis is a natural state of deep relaxation and heightened awareness. In 1955, hypnotherapy was officially recognized as a legitimate therapeutic technique by the British Medical Association. Since that time, hypnotherapy has become an accepted and celebrated component of traditional health treatment.

Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy concentrates on understanding and changing the patterns of behaviour that make you crave cigarettes and nicotine. More and more frustrated smokers are turning to hypnotherapy to help them stop smoking once and for all.

Generally, smoking hypnotherapy will focus on three main ideas:

  • Smoking is harmful and poisons the body
  • You need your body to live
  • You should respect your body and protect it

 

Hypnosis Changes Neural Patterns

The only way to defeat a habit, fear or addiction is to rewire the brain and change the neural pathways which drive you to carry out addictive behaviours. Hypnosis directly affects the subconscious mind and changes your habitual patterns. Most smokers smoke out of habit rather than necessity (i.e. after a meal, on a break at work, or before bed).

Working with the unconscious part of the mind is the most effective method to do this, because the behaviour itself is unconscious. That is to say, you find yourself smoking before you've had a chance to stop it, and even when you know you are doing it - you still cannot stop yourself. Hypnotherapy will change the way you look at cigarettes and help you change your thinking patterns, which will help you quit smoking.

 

Hypnotherapy Reduces and Eliminates Cravings for Cigarettes

Unlike nicotine patches and other smoking secession medications, hypnotherapy successfully fights and eliminates patient’s tobacco cravings. No two people smoke for the same reasons. As such, hypnotherapy sessions are tailored according to the individual patient and their specific needs.

During a Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy session, your practitioner will identify the reasons why you want to smoke and use positive suggestions to reduce your cravings. You will also learn techniques to help you eliminate your cravings when you are at home, work, or any other place you would usually be tempted to smoke.

The Benefits of Sleep Hypnotherapy

Sleepless, Restless Nights - Sleep Hypnotherapy Can Help!

At one point or another, we have all found ourselves obsessively glaring at the clock, trying to calculate how many hours of sleep we might hope to get if we finally fall asleep. Lying in bed and trying to sleep is remarkably frustrating when it does not happen naturally.  Our inability to sleep can be influenced by many factors, to include stress, anxiety, and depression.

 

Whether you are anxious about what happened the previous day or simply just worried because you can't sleep, lack of sleep can have a serious impact on your health and wellbeing. Luckily, sleep hypnosis can help you get the rest you have been seeking.

 

What is Insomnia?

Insomnia is when an individual experiences difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, even when they want to and have the chance to do so. However, insomnia is not only defined by how long it takes to fall or sleep or the number of hours a person sleeps, but insomnia also relates to the distress and day-to-day damage a person experiences as a result of one or more of the following:

 

  • Difficulty falling asleep
  • Difficulty remaining asleep through the night
  • Waking up too early
  • Receiving nonrestorative sleep (which can leave a person feeling unwell, irritable, distracted, or tired the next day)

 

An Active Mind

Our 'daytime' state of mind is very active. During the day, our active imagination contemplates the future. Our brain runs through upcoming activities, troubleshooting any potential obstacles we may encounter along the way.

 

While this is essential to functioning at maximum levels during our daylight hours, it can become troublesome if our 'daytime' mind carries over into the evening hours. An active mind can cause sleepless nights and subsequent groggy days. When we lack sleep, we worry. When we worry, our mind races and we can not fall asleep naturally. It becomes a cycle, which often leads to watching the clock and worrying what sleep (if any) we may end up getting.

 

Sleep Hypnotherapy

Hypnosis is a natural state of deep relaxation and heightened awareness. In 1955, hypnotherapy was officially recognised as a legitimate therapeutic technique by the British Medical Association. Since that time, hypnotherapy has become an accepted and celebrated component of traditional health treatment.

 

Sleep Hypnotherapy concentrates on understanding and changing the patterns of behavior that hinder your sleep patterns. Although the causes of sleep deficiency and insomnia vary for each person, many conditions may increase your risk of developing a sleep disorder.

 

How does Sleep Hypnotherapy Work?

Together with your hypnotherapist, you'll determine the causes of your sleep disorder so you can change the way you respond to certain triggers. Sleep Hypnotherapy will teach you various methods to relax quickly and efficiently. You'll learn how to switch off your active mind before it turns into the troubling thoughts, anxiety, and stress that keeps you awake. Your hypnotherapist will also teach you how to practice self-hypnosis to aid your sleep.

 

Generally, the fact that you will be able to put yourself into a deep state of relaxation will naturally help your sleep. However, you will also be given hypnosis specifically formulated to help you learn how to get to sleep quickly and easily. Additionally, learning the art of relaxation will help you return to peaceful, natural sleep patterns.

 

Annie Browne Hypnotherapy
