Our SubConscious minds are wide open until around the age of 7 years old. During this time everything we see, hear or experience enters our minds unfiltered. This means that anything traumatic, real or imagined, is stored deep inside and can affect our emotional and physical health indefinitely if not made sense of as we grow up. Think of a baby that is born into a busy family where her mother has postnatal depression. She could easily grow up with a false belief that she is unlovable. Hypnotherapy is a magical way of revisiting these beliefs and reframing in a way that is healing and helpful.
“Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways.” Sigmund Freud
