In all my years in Hypnotherapy and NLP the majority of issues I deal with are related to the beliefs being held by the client. Beliefs can be positive or negative and it is the latter which cause the problem!
Beliefs are not necessarily truths but will feel as though they are to the individual who holds the belief. They may be aware of the belief or they may not!
Beliefs can be formed at any age but those formed in our formative years of 0 to 7 years old can often be the most long lasting and powerful. We change beliefs all the time but some stick with us either on a conscious or unconscious level. They then go on to have a massive influence over what we then do and don’t do in the rest of our lives!
A belief can be formed by many things, it could be something someone said to us when we were much younger such as “you’ll never amount to anything!”, or “you are a bad kid!” or “you’re not good enough!”. For some people, not all, these remarks can hit deep and a belief is then formed inside of us that we believe to be true and act accordingly.
Once a belief is formed our mind looks to gather information to support that belief and dismiss evidence to the contrary!! That is why someone who has low self esteem will laugh off any compliments others pay them as them “just being nice” rather than taking them on face value. How could they mean it? That would call into question one of their core beliefs!!
My job is to help the client identify the beliefs that are causing the issue or problems they are experiencing and then to expose those beliefs for the fraud they are and how holding that belief has been damaging their lives all this time and how things would be once it was gone!
Beliefs can be changed quite quickly once the part of you that is holding the belief can see how this is having a negative impact on you. A combination of Hypnotherapy and NLP can be very effective in helping a client to let go of these old beliefs and create new positive ones in their place! Believe me, your mind wants you to be happy and healthy even if if it doesn’t always seem to be the case!
If there is a belief holding you back or that is plaguing your life then you don’t have to live with it forever!
