Fighting Sexual Assault With Hypnotherapy

Many times the victim ends up blaming themselves for the sexual assault and the shame that takes hold of them so deeply prevents them from revealing the truth. So many factors play a role in victims not reporting it to anyone. For example, if the perpetrator was a family member like an uncle, brother, dad, grandfather, close family friend, etc. sometimes they don’t want to cause havoc in the family or be the reason the family breaks up or kill each other so they keep it a secret.

What Else Keeps You Silent?

If it’s in the workplace, for example, the victim may feel powerless as they may not be in a role of authority as we have seen in cases of women reporting their sexual assault by Harvey Weinstein or the men reporting their sexual abuse by Priests as children. Prior to the #MeToo movement, authorities did not pay much attention to men or women reporting their sexual assault especially by a person of power or celebrity in the case of Bill Cosby.

How Deep Does It Rip You Off From Inside?

Millions of women today are revealing that Dr. Ford’s raw testimony brought up their own secretive painful past of sexual abuse or sexual assault. Some women are revealing that they thought they had dealt with it but the testimony brought it all back to the surface for them. Cases of sexual abuse and sexual assault are quite prevalent in therapies of all kinds. Sexual assault and sexual abuse affects victims in so many different ways as they continue to live on in life. Whether its weight issues, substance abuse, relationship issues, fears, anxieties, serious mental illnesses like schizophrenia, chronic depression, body aches and pain that are sometimes unexplainable, it even affects the way a person thinks, behaves, and communicates with others.

The scope of how much sexual abuse and sexual assault affects a person is extremely vast, affecting the individual from physical level to emotional level to mental level and even on spiritual level too. In hypnotherapy, we are able to help the individual on all these levels so they can move on with the flow of life no longer having the horror of their past shown to them through issues they are currently facing in life.

How Hypnotherapy Can Help You Finding Courage To Deal With Sexual Assault?

It takes a lot of courage for a person to face their past and deal with it in a way that would help them transform and feel empowered to no longer consider themselves as a victim anymore. As a hypnotherapist, sometimes individuals that knows they have been sexually abused or assaulted reveal they are not ready to deal with it or it’s too much for them to handle or they just don’t want to go back there again, even though going back there again is within the mind from a different perspective and with guidance to support them to transform in unique ways.

Stop Bullying! Get Hypnotherapy!

With First Lady-Trump of the United States giving attention to the widespread issue of bullying, people are taking this prevalent issue of bullying more seriously.  Bullying appears everywhere from the schools to the workplace to the city streets to social media and even in the White House.  Bullying can show up in many forms, whether is physical abuse, verbal abuse, emotional abuse, social bullying, sexual bullying which is basically shaming, and the newest one with the existence of social media, cyber bullying.  No matter the form of bullying, they all aim to demean a person to make them feel inferior in some way or like an outcast as if they don’t belong.

Instances Where You May Feel Being Bullied

While there can be many causes of bullying, it seems to be that when someone looks different or acts differently from the majority, it creates the pattern for being bullied. Often times, the one who is considered the bully has been bullied by someone else and therefore spreads this form of communication. In little children, being bullied by a bigger sibling or relative could then lead them to bully a classmate in school. Bullying is the act of intimidating a person whom you perceive to be weaker in order for you to feel more powerful. This means that in little children, they felt as if their power had been taken away by the bigger sibling or relative so they counteract that feeling by doing something and saying things to their classmate, the victim, so they feel that they take back their power.

Been Bullied As A Victim?

The situation comes about when the one doing the bullying sees a response from the one being the victim that makes the bully feel like he or she has won. The bully will therefore continue to demean the victim to receive a response that produces feelings that makes the bully feel strong, powerful, or superior to the victim. When the one who is the victim responds to the bully each time in a similar fashion, crying, backing down, or losing the fight in some way, the situation further exacerbates into continuous bullying. In other words, bullying is all about a power play.

How Does Bullying Affects Human Behaviour?

It’s such a tricky situation when a child is going through this sometimes on a daily basis and does not have enough tools at his or her disposal to counteract the bullying. I once had a client who as a child had his food swapped by a classmate every day for a full year and though he tried so many different pathways to fix the situation, nothing worked. As an adult it led to him being overly controlling because he could not control the situation as a child. With another client, a negative statement from a classmate caused her to cry in kindergarten which then resulted in daily bullying for 10 years growing up with this particular classmate. As an adult, this led to very low self-esteem and eventually symptoms relating to OCD behavior.hypnotherapy-near-me

How Hypnotherapy is Helpful In Coping Up With Such Situations?

Sometimes bullying results in suicide because the victim feels as if there is nothing they can do to win, to take back their life, and to get out of the situation. In the news these days, we hear little children as young as 7 years old taking their life as a result of bullying. In other extremes of this situation, cases of mass murder happens where the victim unleashes their wrath onto everyone as evidenced in the recent Parkland MSD School shooting. This happens because there is a lack of resources for the child to learn how to handle situations of bullying, and most importantly the feelings that comes up as a result of being bullied.

Many people are not aware of the effects that bullying has on a person which can sometimes be lifelong. Fortunately lots of different kinds of therapy, including hypnotherapy exists that can help children and victims of bullying. Hypnotherapy has many techniques that can be taught to a person to help them feel empowered. Techniques are taught so the victim can help himself or herself in the present situations. At the same time, we help the individual deal with the negative feelings that emerges as a result of the being bullied, and focus on raising self-esteem. If the bullying has happened in the past yet it continues to affect your present day life as an adult, sometimes in ways that you are not aware, we help you process the internal memory with the underlying feelings so it no longer continues to affect your present day life.

Are you ready to help yourself overcome bullying? Most importantly, are you ready to help your child who is a victim of bullying? Do you think that your child is a bully? Then Hypnotherapy can help bring forth resolution to help each person transform.

Stop bullying in its tracks. Help yourself and your child to embrace friendship and kindness instead.

Transform Depressed Feelings with Hypnotherapy

Do you know that just about everyone has been depressed at some point in their lives? Whether it’s a traumatic event, emotional stress of some sort, or just a change in environment that had a negative impact, and so many other situations, when feelings associated with these situations are not felt and expressed, this can lead to what we know today as depression.

Exactly what is depression?

Depression itself is not an emotion even though depressed means to be sad. Rather, it’s a condition used to describe the suppression of emotions. Feelings are depressed or suppressed which is like bottling up of all the negative or unwanted emotions. This happens on a deeper level within the mind and often times we are not aware that we are suppressing our emotions. Suppressing the emotions means turning those feelings inwards into ourselves rather than expressing them and allowing them to be free. Hypnotherapy for depression or depressed feelings can help the emotions to be free to express their energy.

hypnosis-for-depressionBut what causes depression?

Though there are many studies about this, including chemical changes within the body of those that are diagnosed with depression, let’s explore it on an emotional level.

E-motion is energy in motion. When that energy is not allowed to be expressed, it gets stuck in the body, which would then affect the chemical change in the body. When the emotions are held inside and remain unresolved, this leads to depression, or depressed feelings. Since the subconscious mind is in charge of the autonomic system and the emotions in the body, the emotions are directly related to the chemical changes in the physical body.

Where does it come from?

Think about a child who is uncomfortable in a situation. From birth, that child cried when feeling hurt, sad, scared, etc. If at some point that child is told, “Don’t Cry” the child may start to think that it’s not okay to cry. Since no alternative to “Don’t Cry” was provided for the child, that child has no idea how to deal with these kinds of emotions. The child may then stop crying and decide that it’s not okay to cry, and therefore think that it’s not okay to feel any of these unwanted emotions. The energy of these feelings are not flowing in motion so they become blocked. The child may grow up feeling like this and since no one teaches that child what to do with the emotions, they remain suppressed. Using hypnotherapy for depression or depressed feelings is so successful because we get to cause of these feelings that have been bottled up for years.

How does Hypnotherapy really help depression or depressed feelings?

Every emotion affects us physically whether we are aware of the feeling or not. Joy can be felt within our bodies. Peace can be felt within our bodies. Anger can be felt within our bodies. Fear can be felt within our bodies. All of our emotions are felt within our bodies. Hypnotherapy for depression or depressed feelings helps to heal and express these emotions in a way that’s comfortable and healthy. We also go deeper to transform the thoughts within the mind that are causing the emotions.

Exploring and healing the root cause of the feelings that are brought to consciousness is why Hypnotherapy has been recognized as one of the fastest and most effective natural ways to help resolve depression or depressed feelings.

As a Clinical Hypnotherapist, Renukha helps you to clear the blocks to feeling that joy and peace that’s already inside of you so you can have that energy and the drive to open up the passion inside of you for life and the expressions in life wholeheartedly.

What is Hypnosis?

I am choosing not to use the word “relaxation” to describe hypnosis because one is not always aware of being relaxed during the state of hypnosis. Think of a time when you were so absorbed into a video game, a movie, a story, a book, or a theater production that you temporarily forgot your surroundings for a while.

This is an example of hypnosis. Also, think of a time when you were driving as your mind raced along in thoughts and you arrived at your destination only to question yourself on how you got there so quickly. In these examples you were so engrossed within your thoughts that you were experiencing the hypnotic state, yet not so relaxed that your body and mind was aware of that relaxation. Therefore, hypnosis is a natural state of being absorbed into trance whereby the conscious mind is relaxed enough to give access to the subconscious mind to communicate effectively with you.

You are aware of what is happening with you. In fact, you are more aware in the state of hypnosis than you are during your regular waking conscious state. This is because your subconscious mind has the ability to take in massive amounts of data. While there are currently no accurate data in terms of numbers for the mind, according to research, the subconscious mind can take in what is equivalent to over 20 million bits of information per second versus the ability of the conscious mind that takes in only 40 bits of information per second. Regardless of the exact number of information the subconscious mind can process at once, it’s as if it can be equal to 12 supercomputers versus the 1 supercomputer equivalent of the conscious mind. So imagine the immense potential you have within you just by entering into the state of hypnosis!

How does it feel to be in hypnosis?

During the hypnotic state you may notice different sensations in your body. These sensations may be one or many of the following:

  • heaviness of the arms and legs
  • tingling in the hands and/or the feet
  • a feeling of sinking into relaxation
  • a feeling of lightness in the body and/or the mind
  • clear mind with fewer thoughts than normal
  • vibrations in the head and/or different body parts as you relax
  • a sensation of floating
  • a totally blankness of the mind at various times

The wide range of feelings and sensations can go beyond this list, however it gives you an idea of what you can experience simply by being in hypnosis. Also, while in hypnosis, you may notice that you are hearing my voice at certain times, and then you are not hearing my voice at various times because your mind just relaxes you that much deeper into your hypnotic state.

In hypnosis, you may hear my voice at the highest point of the curve in the diagram and my voice can fade “into the distance” when you are drifting deeper into hypnosis at the bottom of the curve. Just like the curves in the diagram, you can go in and out of hearing my voice until you are brought out of the hypnotic state completely.

In this example of hypnosis, you are aware of hearing my voice at the beginning, then my voice fades until we come closer toward the end of the session where you hear my voice again as you come back to being in the full conscious state, out of the hypnotic state.
