My Experience With Hypnotherapy

. March 28, 2020 .


In today's post I want to talk to you about Hypnotherapy. A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to have an amazing session with a lovely human called Richard Maule out in Bali, which helped me shift some old stubborn behaviours and thoughts I had related to body image.

Right now it’s extra important to look after our mental health, being stuck inside indefinitely can feel overwhelming and a particular struggle for those suffering with things like anxiety, depression and eating disorders. So today I wanted to share my hypnotherapy experience with Rich, our session really helped me and if any of you are facing struggles right now hypnotherapy might be something to consider.

What we worked on isn’t something I’ve talked about a lot (if ever) on this platform – I try to keep this a super positive place and especially when it comes to things like self love and body confidence. But my road to self-love has definitely been a long one and I’ve faced a lot of internal struggles along the way. In my late teens I struggled with an eating disorder. Im well ‘recovered’ and have been for several years now but, when you go through something like that, it’s easy to retain some stubborn negative thoughts in the back for your mind – despite the fact that nowadays I consider myself a generally happy and healthy person.

And so when Rich asked me what problem I’d like to target within my hypnotherapy session, it saw it as a sign and opportunity to finally see the back fo these negative thoughts and behaviours for good.  Hypnosis works by tapping into your unconscious mind (where these thoughts and behaviours of mine remained) and redirecting these thoughts to help you achieve your goals and essentially what you want out of life.
To go deeper into yourself and access your subconscious, you need to enter a hypnotic state. This part of my experience with Rich was the most crazy/ surreal/ interesting/ amazing. I was guided into a hypnotic state, but was still aware and remember every part of the session. During this state, lots of suppressed memories and experiences came up, some I’d suppressed so much I’d almost forgotten about but were obviously still playing a part in my struggles. But letting them out, releasing them with Rich’s guidance was very cathartic and as I let go of them, sad tears turned to happy tears. We then worked on redirecting my subconscious to thoughts of self love, health and kindness towards myself.

I left the session feeling incredibly happy, like a weight had been lifted. I remember riding home on my scooter with the biggest smile plastered across my face and happy tears rolling down my cheeks at the internal shifts I was noticing so immediately. And as the days followed, it amazed me how the shifts were having such positive impacts, for the first time in years I felt happier looking in the mirror, I felt more drawn to things that made me feel healthy and a lot of guilt I struggled with around food had disappeared.
I’ll forever be grateful for this experience, and if you’re struggling with something or even just want to improve your thinking around certain aspects of your life I definitely recommend looking into hypnotherapy and in particular the wonderful human that is Richard Maule – thank you Rich for helping me make such positive changes. Let’s use this time to be kind to ourselves, be mindful, show ourselves love and if you want to work deeper, maybe even try something new like Hypnotherapy.

Rich is hosting a guided visualisation, meditation and breath-work tomorrow morning at 11am UK time on his Instagram Live  (6pm Bali time) so if you’re interested in his work you can join tomorrow from anywhere. I for one definitely need this right now and can’t wait.

Lots of love and stay safe everyone 💕
