Releasing The Inner Child

Discover Hypnotherapy as a Safe, Effective, Non-invasive, All-natural, Drug-Free Alternative Treatment For Depression and live a happy, fulfilling life.

If you’ve ever been diagnosed with Depression, you’ve probably been told it’s a medical condition caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain and if you Google it, you’ll most likely read that it’s a mental illness that can be caused by anything from genetics, brain biology, trauma, grief, difficult relationships, adverse childhood experience or extreme stress.  So while Depression is one of the most common conditions with over 300 million sufferers worldwide – it is also quite possibly one of the most misunderstood disorders of the mind.

History Of Depression 1

History of Depression Treatments

Still known as “melancholy” right up to the Victorian era, it wasn’t until 1856 that depression was considered a medical condition.  Ever since then the treatment for depression has been predominantly drug therapy with anti-depressant medication. More recently talk therapy including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) has been paired with the drugs as the most popular treatment – HOWEVER – there are people who have been on anti-depressant medication for decades which has many people questioning the validity of their use.

Anti Depressants 2

It’s one of the questions Johann Hari, best selling author and social scientist from the UK wrote about in his book Lost Connections – Uncovering the Real Cause of DepressionHe, himself suffered with depression for years and wasn’t getting any better with ever increasing doses of anti-depressant medication.  Whilst no-one is dismissing the use of anti-depressants as a  treatment option, there’s an ever-increasing number of people who challenge their effectiveness in actually alleviating the problem.  Many, including the World Health Organisation have concluded that depression is in fact, not caused by lower levels of  serotonin in the brain but is an indicator of the state of our mental health as a society.

Professor Andrew Skull of Princeton University is quoted saying that – the story about depression being caused by low serotonin levels [in other words a chemical imbalance] is “deeply misleading and unscientific”  while UK Professor of Psychiatry David Healy says “that the story can’t be discredited because there was never a time when it was credited!”

 

Don’t settle for outdated treatments…ask more questions.

If you’ve been diagnosed with depression and have been living with the condition for years and don’t feel like you’re getting any better, start asking more questions. Look for alternative therapies, like Hypnotherapy.  To put some perspective on this, the Hamilton Scale measures depression based on a number of questions and gives a rating between 0 (no depression) and 56 (severely symptomatic, suicidal).  Regular meditation could lower the score by up to 8 points whereas anti-depressant medication lowers the score by around 1-2 points.

“I believe that depression is an emotional disorder more so than a mental disorder, but because they’re so closely related it gets categorised as a mental health problem – it’s often unclear which comes first since our thoughts trigger our feelings which then add meaning to our thoughts.  It’s almost a never-ending cycle.  I would absolutely love for people to consider this – depression is caused by not having one or more of our inherent needs met,” says Roberta.

We have inherent physical needs for air, food, water & warmth to survive, but we also have inherent emotional and psychological needs for love, belonging, senses of significance, certainty and variety as well as a need to contribute to others in order to thrive.  If any one of these inherent needs are not met, we can’t thrive and in the case of our physical needs not being met, our survival is under threat.  UK Professor Michael Marmont (educated here in Sydney) said, “our culture is not meeting our needs” as we become more and more isolated, by the way we live.  We’re no longer tribal, we each go home to our own little box, with less and less interaction with other people, we don’t chat with the cashier at the grocery store check-out anymore, drones are delivering our pizza. You can see how this is happening and why it is getting worse as time goes on and technology improves.

In addition to not having one or more of our inherent needs met is the presence of harsh, critical words we hear in life, which in times of stress, we repeat to ourselves.  For example, if our inherent need for a sense of significance is not being met, our subconscious mind will often look for an explanation for that and actually create a notion that we are not “good enough”.  We then look for, (or create) evidence to back that up; not finding a suitable partner, being overlooked for a raise, etcetera.   It plays over and over in our mind as a looping thought that we come to believe, which ultimately leads to depression, its very difficult to break out of that cycle without knowing how it started; that’s how hypnotherapy helps. 

In Part II of this discussion, we discover how Hypnotherapy is a safe, drug-free, all natural and very effective alternative treatment for Depression.   In hypnosis, you can uncover the root cause of those looping thoughts and break the cycle without the harmful side effects of drug therapy. You will also discover ways to meet your inherent needs to live a happy and fulfilling life. Alternatively, you can book a Free Discovery Call by clicking on the link below.

Ringing in the Ears?  Cure Tinnitus Naturally and Permanently with Hypnosis.

What is Tinnitus?

Commonly known as ringing in the ears, Tinnitus can also be characterised by a high pitch whine, buzzing, clicking, tapping or chirping sound and is often associated with a hearing loss or impairment.

Tinnitus1

What Causes Tinnitus?

Tinnitus has been related to incidents of head injury, whiplash, exposure to excessive noise, as a side effect of certain medications or even a build up of ear wax.  However, there is strong evidence to suggest that the presence of these conditions can be co-incidental to the tinnitus and therefore not the cause at all.  In fact, there is thousands of documented cases of tinnitus with no apparent cause – it just showed up out of nowhere.

The truth is our ears are particularly sensitive to changes in pressure – which in turn is affected by energetic charge in the atmosphere.

It’s why dogs can “sense” the coming of a storm even before the clouds appear – we too can sense the change in vibrational energy through the changes in atmospheric pressure.

Our ears don’t just react to the shifts in physical energy, but also the shifts in emotional energy which also vibrate the way sound waves vibrate.   Our bodies are transmitters and receivers of information through this vibrational energy and our ears can pick up on emotional vibrations.

 

Wait! Emotions Vibrate? And We Can Hear TTinnitus2hem?

Yes, you can “hear” when someone’s happy, sad, angry or afraid even when you can’t see their face or hear their voice – they send out a vibrational energy that we inherently recognise as a particular emotion.

 

 

Map Of Consciousness

Dr David R. Hawkins, Psychiatrist and author of Rediscovering Yourself created a Map of Consciousness in which he measures the frequency of vibration emitted by emotional states similar to sound waves.  The lowest vibration emotions like shame and guilt are measured at 20 while love is measured at 500.

“That’s why you can usually tell when someone’s not happy – we “sense” the way people around us are feeling.  Our bodies pick up on the vibrations that others give off – at a subconscious level,” says Roberta.

How does this “vibe” become Tinnitus?

Crying Boy2An emotional memory has been triggered in the subconscious mind, and the body is responding to it by adding a ringing in the ears to get our attention. Possibly an emotion you don’t recognise  or an emotion attached to an event you don’t remember – it may have been too painful or frightening to remember. The amygdala in our brain senses something foreign, unfamiliar, or frightening it sends a message through the sympathetic nervous system to activate fight or flight mode and we experience a sense of distress which presents as tinnitus.

 

 

For example, I saw a middle-aged gentleman, who had fallen down an old mine shaft as a 2 year old – he didn’t remember the experience, only what he’d heard his parents tell about the story… but as you can imagine it must have been quite frightening for him as a child – not to mention how much of a fright it would have caused his parents.  He developed tinnitus after watching a news story about a group of kids trapped in an underground tunnel – because at a subconscious level, his mind was remembering his own experience and was triggered to vibrate the sound of the emotions he experienced as a kid.  In hypnosis, he was able to remember the childhood incident and make the emotional connection between that and the news story; and help his mind understand that any perceived threat had passed; then… the tinnitus stopped.

How can Hypnosis cure Tinnitus?

Quite simply, hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation in which we can help a person unlock the subconscious mind and discover the emotion or the event in which they first experienced that emotion that might have caused them enough pain or fear that they needed to shut it away.  Even if the tinnitus was triggered by a more recent event such as an injury, the subconscious mind is using this as an opportunity to show you something that it wants you to know.  This is called regression and it’s just like opening up an old file from a filing cabinet to help you better understand something that’s happening in the present.

Not only that, hypnosis is the state at which our minds are at their most receptive to new ideas, so it’s the perfect way for a person to change the way they feel about something and decide not to be bothered by it any more.  This is the transformation stage of the process and the reason why, the results can be made permanent.

Hypnotherapy is an all-natural, drug-free, non-invasive treatment for many issues and tinnitus is one of the latest and most exciting issues to be tackled using hypnosis because it has previously been thought to be incurable.  Hypnotherapy is the answer.

I had been searching  sometime for a Hypnotherapist that would focus on past life regression, it was difficult to find someone I felt comfortable with right away until I was introduced to Roberta through a friend of mine, from the moment I spoke with Roberta I knew she would be the one that I could put my trust in to get the answers I needed. Roberta made me feel comfortable from the moment I walked in her friendly and caring nature made the experience very pleasant and I have since referred several friends that have all had a great experience’s. If you are searching for answers within, yourself or to overcome underlying issues that just can’t seem to be resolved I would highly recommend a session with Roberta.
