Why coach your mind?
Mind Coaching has been used successfully to treat pain, anxiety, fear, phobias, asthma, bedwetting, stool-withholding, nervous tics, smoking, obesity and many more other problems. The value of mind coaching goes beyond its ability to help with these ailments. Increasing one’s ability to control symptoms through hypnosis can strengthen confidence and mastery. Personal success in self-hypnosis increases self-esteem. Self-hypnosis is a skill that increases with practice. The technique can be used to meet new challenges throughout life.
What is Mind Coaching?
Mind Coaching derives from forms of hypnotherapy but unlike hypnotherapy in mind coaching the client is only deeply relaxed and not induced into a trance for the therapy to take place. It has been found that clients get better results from being relaxed rather the being in a trance.
Mind coaching is a very old healing modality, a safe, gentle, and effective way to heal, reduce stress, relieve pain, and effect changes in one’s life. It is a state of mind similar to experiencing a pleasant daydream. People in a relaxed state may look like they are asleep, but they are actually deeply relaxed, concentrating and using their imagination.
If a therapist is involved, they act as a coach or facilitator, building the person’s daydream. The individual client controls entering and exiting this relaxed state of consciousness. An individual can learn self-hypnosis so they can enter that state of comfort and increased self-control at any time for their own benefit. Learning self-hypnosis is a valuable lifelong skill that is good for the body, mind and spirit.
When a properly trained and credentialed health care professional uses mind coaching as part of a treatment, it is a practical way of helping people manage physical and psychological problems. The therapist uses relaxation, focused guided imagery, suggestions, and therapeutic metaphors to build self-control over physical and emotional problems.
All mind coaching is self-therapy that can be used for one’s own benefit.
What are the risks of Mind Coaching?
When used correctly, there are no risks with mind coaching, nor any adverse effects. The technique increases one’s ability to control symptoms. The brain is incredibly powerful, and contains priceless resources which can be mobilised for personal growth and healing. This therapy helps the individual to use their own imagination to tap into their own strengths and resources.
Mind Coaching should only be used as part of a treatment plan for a specific problem after a careful evaluation by a trained health professional.
