The Value of Relaxation

16 May

Relaxation is something I work on with all my clients – it’s so important whatever the issue, be it weight loss, fertility or anxiety.  The importance of relaxation has been brought home to me personally this week.  I have a big event this weekend and have been rushing around trying to get everything finalised for it.  My sister had arranged a spa day for me yesterday, knowing that I might need some me-time in preparation for the weekend.  When we were driving there I noticed that I was thinking how I didn’t really have time for this, there were other things I could be doing with the day, getting things done and being productive.  I felt quite stressed about taking time out!

Once I was at the spa, all of these negative thoughts changed.  I started to relax and enjoy being away from everything, knowing that I couldn’t do anything if I wanted to.  It was bliss!  I ended the day feeling totally chilled out and much more energised.

This experience has reminded me how important it is to take time out, however busy you are.  Clients often tell me that they don’t have time to relax, even for a short period.  I was lucky to be able to take a whole day to relax, but it doesn’t have to be that long.  Stopping, even for the shortest time, will recharge your batteries meaning that you have much more energy for the rest of the day.  So why not sit and watch the world go by, lie back and listen to your favourite song, or take yourself for a 20-minute walk outside?  I guarantee you will feel much better afterwards!


Hypnotherapy for Fertility

18 Apr

Spring can seem like a very fertile time of year, with buds appearing on the trees and baby animals playing in the fields.   However, for couples struggling to conceive time can pass by in a blur as they focus on trying to get pregnant.

Many people don’t consider hypnotherapy when looking for ways to help with fertility, as they see this as a physical issue.    However, there is a very powerful connection between the body and mind and hypnotherapy can help to use this link in a very positive way.  When we are stressed, the body can go into ‘fight or flight’ mode taking the focus away from any systems that aren’t deemed completely necessary, one of which is the reproductive organs.  By using hypnotherapy to relax, the body will feel more in balance and more ready to have a baby.

There can also be underlying emotional reasons which may prevent conception; this may be something from your own childhood or perhaps you have worries about how you will cope with a baby.  Hypnotherapy can help to identify these unconscious emotional issues and help to reframe them in a positive way.

If you are struggling to conceive at the moment, why not contact me and we can talk about the ways that hypnotherapy can help you.  I’d love to help.
