A child will grow out of bed wetting, but adult bed wetting can be a serious embarrassment. It can be difficult to stop (How does one control the bladder when asleep?) But remember, you are not alone. There are thousands who suffer from the same condition. And it is a myth that those who suffer from this condition have weak brains or submissive personalities.
If your bed wetting started when you were an adult, you must, first of all, seek medical help. The problem may be diabetes. a urinary tract infection, bladder stones or even an early sign of bladder cancer.
However, frequently, the problem may not be physiological, but mental. Your subconscious, which controls functions such as heartbeat, breathing and
bladder control during sleep, may be allowing your bladder muscles relax at night.
The wonderful news is that there’s a technique to help stop bed wetting without surgery.
CAN HYPNOTHERAPY HELP?
The answer is hypnotherapy. Bladder control is a subconscious function, whether you are awake or asleep. Hypnosis is helpful because it addresses your over-active bladder at the subconscious level. Your subconscious mind is extremely vulnerable to suggestions.
Hypnotherapy makes use of this by suggesting action or change to your subconscious mind when you are put to a relaxed state. Even while you are asleep at night, your strengthened subconscious, empowered by the suggestions will take over. These subliminal suggestions can effortlessly strengthen your bladder muscles and help to stop bed wetting once and for all.
You may have tried training your body, going to the bathroom several times before sleep, abstaining for drinking water, strengthening your bladder muscles, but to no avail. Or you may just be looking for an alternative to medicines, alarms and diapers.
We know that coping with it can be considerable. On practical terms, there is the chores involved – the daily washing and drying of sheets.
Emotionally there is the fear of humiliation, the embarrassment when someone comes to know of your problem. It can also affect your self esteem and lead you to believe that you are unworthy of respect. A problem shared can be a problem halved. Take the first step by talking to our therapists.
You can get your life back to how it was before your adult bed wetting problem – the carefree days without the worry. There is a cure to adult bed wetting. Don’t let embarrassment stop you from seeking help-talk to our therapists today.
Is your jaw stiff when you wake in the morning? Do you experience sore cheeks or ear aches? Do you have dull morning headaches? Does your bed partner complain of grinding sounds from you when you are asleep? If you experience one or more of the following symptoms.You may have sleep bruxism.
Bruxism is the act of involuntary teeth grinding or clenching, either while awake or asleep. Most people who are inflicted are from 15 to their 50s. Many sufferers are not aware of the problem until permanent damage has been done to their teeth and bone structure.
Here are some of its common signs and symptoms –
– Chewed insides of cheek
– Chronic facial pain
– Unusual wear and tear on teeth
– Tooth sensitivity
– Tender jaw muscles
– Ear aches
Doctors and dentists have not determined its exact cause, but a link with the following psychological factors have been found.
– Anxiety, stress or tension
– Suppressed anger or frustration
– Aggressive, competitive or hyperactive personality type
A common belief is that it is caused by malocclusion (misalignment of upper and lower teeth). Alcohol, tobacco and caffeine is also reported to worsen the habit. Dental check ups are the best way to screen against bruxism, especially if you don’t have a sleeping partner to feedback on any occurrence of night grinding.
In its advanced stage, nerve and blood vessels in the gum may be exposed. Teeth may be worn to the gumline and other complications may arise. Severe pain will be inevitable and by then, surgery will be necessary.
How does hypnotherapy works?
Because stress is often the root cause of bruxism, hypnosis, which aids relaxation, can help.. Teeth grinding is an automatic, unconscious habit and hypnosis reaches the subconscious and works with it to reprogram the grinding response into something more positive and relaxing. The therapist will suggest to your subconscious mind ideas that will create triggers to relax the jaw muscles and release the tension in your cheeks. Your mind will be trained to release tension from your entire face, your neck, and your jaw. After repeated sessions, the trigger patterns will be set. The jaw will be trained to relax and soften.
Relief can be felt as early as the first session. If you know you are suffering from bruxism and are desperately seeking a solution before the condition of your teeth worsen, you may consider hypnotherapy as a remedy if mouthguards and botox are not your desired options.
To concentrate is to direct your mental powers or your efforts towards a particular activity, subject or problem.
For some people this is difficult. They find it immensely hard to focus on the task at hand, as worries or insignificant thoughts swim at the back of their mind. For others, boredom or lack of motivation is the cause for the lack of focus. Constant fidgeting and an unnecessarily long duration spent results in impaired productivity.
Focus is the key to success. If you can engage your entire being into a single activity for all that you do, you will succeed. Light, when focused can cut through the hardest metal and kill cancer cells.
Whether you are finding difficulties or just want to enhance your present ability, hypnotherapy can help.
Why hypnosis is effective?
Consciously willing yourself to concentrate requires immense effort and it cannot be a lasting option. Hypnotherapy helps you achieve unconscious competence, where you operate on autopilot, successfully and effortlessly.
Changing external factors like lighting and ventilation to improve concentration is external, and cannot produce a powerful or permanent effect. It is like putting on a new coat of paint over a dirty coat. This kind of change is superficial and not thorough. Those with superior concentration do not focus excessively on external conditions to immerse themselves. The conscious mind is limited when compared to the subconscious. We operate mostly on autopilot. Bodily functions like digestion, breathing and the beating of the heart are controlled by the infinitely superior subconscious mind. Hypnosis, which works at a subconscious level, is the tool of many influential and successful people worldwide.
Few people have tapped the power of the subconscious. According to research, humans are only using 10% of their potential. Because of the infinite power of the subconscious, there is no way of knowing what is humanly achievable and what is not. Whatever your mind can conceive, it can achieve. The only limit is that which you place on yourself and your mind.
Tap the remaining 90%! Achieve your full potential by harnessing your latent mind power with hypnotherapy.
Whatever your mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve. The only limit is the limit you place on your self and your way of knowing for sure what is not achievable.
You know you shouldn’t do it, yet you can’t control it. Why? Because there is a pay-off. The tension as you pull, the relaxed, high feeling as the follicle comes off – Just for that brief moment, it makes you feel good, so your subconscious tells you to do it again. Your conscious, logical mind is no longer in control. You get used to giving in to the urge over time, and the habit reinforces itself, trapping your mind in a cycle of compulsive behaviour. You feel helpless.
The shame, horror, disgust and fear you feel is common among hair-pullers! You imagine yourself to be weird and deviant because you do something like this. You spend an inordinate amount of time covering your dark secret… imprisoned in the guilt, always fearing that someone will discover. And you panic when your hairdresser notices the thinning spot.
Nobody understands your frustration as you wonder if you are close to permanently losing your will and self esteem.
Don’t despair, you are not alone, you are not mad. There are millions like you and there is a cure. First, don’t be embarrassed to ask for help.
Trichotillomania isn’t just a habit that a person can easily stop. It’s a medical condition which affects 1 – 3 % of the population, mostly women.
Hypnosis has proven highly effective in treating trichollomania. During hypnotherapy, your subconscious mind is gently reeducated that you can and will stop pulling. This empowers you at a deeper, inner level and erases the past feelings of failure. Negative emotions are released and limiting beliefs like “I’m not strong enough to overcome this.” or “I can’t have a full head of beautiful hair.” are banished. Hair pulling will be equated with something negative, like nausea.
Just as counseling helps correct behaviours, hypnotherapy works by changing the impulses from within. The underlying reasons are determined and its elimination can then be worked on.
Over some sessions, that hand will no longer creep up to your head surreptitiously. And be further reassured – research shows that hair almost always grows back for hair pullers, when the urge is finally curbed.
Free yourself now, with hypnotherapy.
*You are not responsible for the fact that you have trichotillomania, but you are responsible for how you approach it. You can either decide to be a victim or learn to walk with grace”* – Christina Pearson, Founder/Executive Director of the Trichotillomania Learning Center
Are you constantly late for appointments? Do you find yourself deferring tasks, putting them off till the last minute? Or constantly doing unimportant tasks, while the urgent ones lurk at the back of your mind? Do you feel pressure and guilt afterward? Do you dread approaching deadlines?
Chronic procrastination, other than robbing you of your peace of mind, ruins self esteem and can jeopardize your relationships with family, friends and colleagues. In some cases, it may lead to health problems, debt, divorce and job loss.
Procrastination starts with perceiving a task as difficult, or overwhelming. Once habitualized, it becomes a persistent problem, hampering you from success and efficiency. Contrary to popular notion, it is not a sign of laziness but a mark of a disorganized and unsettled mind. If you have the habit of procrastinating, you are likely to be distracted and unrealistic about time. You feel victimized as you fail to understand your inability to complete your tasks like others, despite putting in the same hours. You are frustrated because you do not know the reasons for your behaviour. You may procrastinate because of, inter-alia,
– Fear of failure or fear of success
– Lack of clear goals
– Limiting beliefs
You may possibly have these characteristics-
– Underdeveloped decision making skills
– Inability to focus
– Poor time management skills
– Inability to prioritize
If you are a procrastinator, it is important that you know you were not born one. You learned the habit unconsciously. And that habit can be unlearned. That habit involves a complex pattern of recurring behaviors including emotions, thoughts, and actions which can be best broken down with hypnosis.
Can hypnotherapy help with procrastination?
Hypnosis can help you eliminate subconscious blocks and create new thought patterns. In a relaxed state, your subconscious, prone to suggestion, is fed ideas to build your self-belief and confidence. Your goals are visually and mentally rehearsed and formulated subconsciously, so it becomes almost second nature to work toward them. Hypnotherapy also has an aspect of self-discovery, allowing you to look inward and analyze the reason you procrastinate, unpick the problems and overcome the barriers that hold you back from achieving your goals. Each session builds on the previous, so further positive will be experienced over time.
Experience renewed strength and purpose, competence and liberation by breaking the procrastination habit with hypnosis.
And as Newsweek reports that “The easiest way to break bad habits is through hypnosis”
Nobody ever died of stage fright, but many people would rather die than speak in public. According to the universal list of fears, the fear of speaking in public is the #1 fear of all fears. The fear of dying is #7!
Stage fright is a phenomenon that has to be overcome if you want to be good at public speaking. Stage fright isn’t technically an accurate term as most of the fear takes place beforehand.
Try to think of stage fright in a positive way. Fear is your friend. It gives you motivation to prepare thoroughly. It sharpens your reflexes, heightens your energy, and makes you more conscious of your posture and breathing. Harness it positively, and turn it into vitality and enthusiasm.
Everyone, even experienced speakers, has some anxiety speaking in front of a group. This is perfectly normal. The best way to deal with this anxiety is to first acknowledge that it is normal and you are not alone.
Many stage fright victims are terrified of failure and humiliation, and incorrectly believe that they will never measure up to their audience’s expectations. “I’m not polished enough.” “They know I’m nervous” “They think I don’t know what I’m saying.” But in perspective, what any audience wants is just to listen to a well-prepared, honest speaker who believes in his message.
Audiences often admire and respect the speaker for the courage to present publicly. It may help if you know that even before you start, they have a positive impression of you.
How hypnosis can help?
For some, the fear may have stemmed from childhood, when they received strange looks or giggles by classmates in a class presentation. This negative reinforcement might have created a lasting effect. Hypnosis can help to negate the effect by regression.
Visualization during hypnosis can help you view the situation as non stressful and enhance your confidence. Impressed upon your subconscious, will be images of yourself relaxed and calm, coolly walking to the lectern.
You will envision the audience smiling, nodding and applauding. On speech day, these positive triggers will enable your vision to materialize.
Hypnosis can help you acquire better breathing techniques, which will aid immeasurably in your ability to relax. It can help you attain mental clarity and a positive mental state.
When you hear that applause and see smiling faces, it will be the most wonderful feeling in the world. Discover the joy of public speaking with hypnotherapy!
Perhaps you are looking for your perfect partner. Perhaps you are trying to build more success in a current relationship whether in a family or romance.
Hypnosis has been successfully used to enhance, enrich, and cultivate relationships.
Shyness or discomfort around new people can be nerve-wracking. Hypnosis can program your mind to be confident, especially around attractive people of the opposite sex. It can help you develop a very positive relationship with yourself, and once you feel comfortable and happy with yourself, others will start to feel very comfortable with you.
Fear of commitment may let a potentially beautiful relationship slip away. The fear may cause a good man or woman to be frustrated as he or she cannot understand why you cannot love him/her. Hypnosis can help you identify the reasons for your behaviour and make more balanced judgments about when to commit.
Hurt from a previous relationship may be preventing you from being fully able to experience the love you deserve, the love that is freely available, if you only allow yourself to receive it. Hypnosis can help you heal your wounded heart. Hypnosis enables you to re-experience past memories in a more positive way, allowing you to gain new perspectives. You can be freed of your heavy emotional baggage and face the future anew. You can learn to love again.
Insecurity, feelings of “I don’t deserve you, because I’m not good enough” may sabotage an otherwise sound relationship. It may lead to the end of a relationship and a lot of unnecessary heartache. Hypnosis can help you develop confidence and self worth.
Many times, we have found the person we want to spend the rest of our lives with. We share similar interests, dreams, values and ideals. But unexpectedly issues and conflicts arise. Problems are viewed from different perspectives and they cannot be harmoniously resolved. Frustration is felt, because we know we can salvage the situation. But it’s difficult because we cannot openly ask others for advice.
Hypnosis can allow you to re-appraise key events, to look at situations from a completely different perspective and to gain an appreciation for another’s position. Strained relationships between friends/ colleagues or your spouse, or your rebellious teenager can be salvaged.
Or perhaps the passion, once bright has dimmed. You can put the spark back again. Re-experience, through hypnosis, how you used to feel towards each
other and experience that wonderful glow all over again. Recapture that lost feeling of love!
Self esteem is a basic human need. It means a respect for the self, or, a quotient of how you regard yourself. It is based on the belief that “I am a worthy human being.” And the feeling that “I make an essential contribution to life.”
People with healthy self-esteems value and accept themselves unconditionally. They feel appreciated, and recognized, and are competent, confident and successful people. They are able to assess themselves accurately and realistically understand their strengths and limitations.
It is a precious asset and the lack of a healthy esteem can lead to unhappiness and failure. Many murders and assaults are committed because of perceived insults to the self esteem.
Your self-esteem develops and evolves throughout your life as an image is built of yourself through experiences with people and successes or failures. Childhood experiences are crucial in affecting in the way we see ourselves today.
If you have been harshly criticized, or yelled at in your youth, or have experienced numerous failures, your self esteem may be impaired now. Watch your inner voice. Is it a harsh critic, constantly belittling your accomplishments?
Do you have unreasonably high expectations of yourself?
Do you blame yourself for consequences that aren’t your fault?
Low self-esteem causes unhappiness and hinders your success. It can have devastating consequences.
– Anxiety, stress, loneliness
– Increased likelihood for burnout or depression.
– Damaged relationships.
– Impaired academic and job performance.
– Increased vulnerability to drug and alcohol abuse.
These negative consequences can cause your self- esteem to be even more fragile. We can help you take away the insecurity. We can help you learn to love yourself. Try hypnosis. It can make a great difference to your life.
How hypnosis can help?

It’s a fact that sports gold medals go to the athlete with the stronger mind. Great athletes attribute their success to calm minds during times of intense pressure. The moment they tense up, (physically or emotionally), their performance rapidly declines.
In hypnotherapy, the conscious mind is the weaker, rational mind. The subconscious is where all the strength and potential for achievement lies. When an athlete doubts or under performs, the conscious mind is allowed to rule. A good example of the weaker mind in charge is when a player loses to less experienced opponents.
Remember those moments when you performed way beyond your expectations and made every shot perfect? It’s likely that your conscious mind had stepped aside for a moment then, and permitted your subconscious to reveal a hint of its potential. Hypnotic conditioning can develop this potential and enable you to repeat these peak performances more frequently thus raising your performance level.
Hypnosis can help you eliminate your mental obstacles and identify your limiting beliefs. It can help you retain positive thinking patterns even when there is doubt. You will then be able to compete with a cool, clear mind, without anxiety. You will be able to focus on the task at hand and not be distracted by fear or worry of the outcome. Your mind and body will be able to work harmoniously instead of conflict.
Hypnosis can also help to …
– Achieve a more positive attitude
– Improve motivation, morale and confidence
– Visualize and orientate goals
– Eliminate fear of failure/humiliation
– Relax, control performance anxiety
– Reduce recovery time from injuries
– Achieve heightened mental focus/concentration (eg snooker)
– Secure consistent, peak performance
– Achieve personal best
Hypnosis can be used in all sports, including weight lifting, golfing, tennis, canoeing, cycling, triathlons, etc. Even for first time marathoners or weekend athletes, the right mind training can push your performance further and higher.
If you participate in a sport – at whatever level – hypnosis will help you compete more consistently at a higher level, and give you a lot more fun.

How hypnosis can help
Our reactions to stressful situations are learnt responses, reinforced through habit. Hypnosis can help us view and respond differently to situations which previously have been perceived to be stressful. Hypnosis can trigger our natural relaxation response and cause waves of endorphins and feelings of tranquility to wash over our tensed bodies. Since hypnosis works at a subconscious level, we can, without conscious effort, experience less physical reactions during stress. This means reduced hyperventilation and heart palpitations.
Negative thinking will also diminish as positive suggestions are fed to your subconscious. You will feel better about your capabilities and strengths. You will also experience less emotional dependence on caffeine, alcohol and nicotine. Over time, performance anxiety and the feeling of rushedness will be greatly reduced. Other benefits we will experience include improved clarity of thought, better attention span, improved decision making, and focus and a stronger immune system. A single session can leave you rejuvenated and recharged.
Renew your life and performance with hypnosis today.
