Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy for habit change

Have you ever come up with amazing New Year’s resolutions like losing weight, starting to save money, setting up your own business, exercising regularly, changing your career, eating more healthily or quitting smoking?

You probably pumped yourself up full of enthusiasm and the belief that this year will be very different. Fast-forward, and what happened a month down the line? If you are like the majority of us, you probably went back to where you started.

The process of trying and failing to change is soul-destroying – we have learned to believe that if only we try hard enough and have the willpower, we should be able to change.

When we fail to change, we start to doubt our own abilities and personality, and we develop low self-esteem.

Now more than ever, people realize that willpower – the ability to control their attention, emotions and desires – influences their physical health, financial security, relationships and professional success.

We all know this.

After years of watching people struggle to change their thoughts, emotions, bodies and habits, I realized that much of what people believed about willpower was sabotaging their success and creating unnecessary stress.

People continued to rely on worn-out strategies for self-control.

The science of will power

Neuroscience and behavioural research in several universities has been helping us to understand why is so difficult to change and what is the best way to improve our willpower.

It is fascinating because has been showing that much of what people believed about willpower was sabotaging their success and creating unnecessary stress.

Science shows us what works and what does not work, rebated several misconceptions and is helping us to change without stress.

The newest insights about self-control from psychology, economics, neuroscience and medicine explain how we can break old habits and create healthy habits, conquer procrastination, find our focus and manage stress. It illuminates why we give in to temptation and how we can find the strength to resist. It demonstrates the importance of understanding the limits of self-control, and presents the best strategies for training willpower.

Each of these studies teaches us something about ourselves and our own willpower challenges. They help us recognize our natural capacity for self-control, even if we sometimes struggle to use it. They help us understand our failures and point at viable solutions. They even tell us something about what it means to be human.

For example, we’ve seen repeatedly that we are not one self, but multiple selves. Our human nature includes both the self that wants immediate gratification, and the self with a higher purpose. We are born to be tempted and born to resist.

Self-control is a matter of understanding these different parts of ourselves, not fundamentally changing who we are.
