Suffering, in a rut, feeling empty or blue? People seek hypnotherapy for a number of reasons. Sometimes we can label these problems with well used words like: hurt, anger, sadness, loss. Often the words just don’t seem to flow. What words can you use to describe your experience? How can you research or reach out if you don’t even know how to describe the problem? Most people will feel negative emotions from time to time and that’s normal. However, that’s not what we are referring to here. For some, the problem persists or recurs and begins to affect our overall well being. This is when we should take note and start to explore the issue… gently.
Ultimately, it doesn’t really matter what words you use to describe a feeling. Accuracy is less important than action… And, sometimes we just need to reach out. Below is a partial list of words that have been used as a starting point. Hopefully, you can use some of these words to move away from suffering and towards health, well-being and happiness.

Well, I guess one has to start somewhere. Once, we have a sense that we’re not quite right, we’ve got to take some action to change our situation. Contact your physician and arrange for an assessment. Determine your options and explore your possibilities. Are medications appropriate? What about therapy and counselling? Are drastic changes necessary? Will this problem go away on its own? Is this serious? What if I leave it for now, what can I expect in time?
