Almost everyone has felt dissatisfied with their nose, or their chin, or their elbow, or some other body part at some time or another. They may even have become depressed about it for a while. But in most cases such concerns usually fade with time. Most people just wake up one day and realise that it isn’t as significant as they first thought.
But for someone experiencing Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), the preoccupation with the supposed ‘wrongness’ of some physical feature becomes so overwhelming they can think of nothing else. When they look in the mirror, they actually fail to see what others can see, and instead, they see — and believe — a completely distorted image of themselves. But what the mirror is telling them is wrong… people are more interested in inner beauty!
These negative beliefs, feelings and emotions can be overcome using hypnosis, getting people to see themselves in a different way.
The same is true of something as simple and straightforward as posture.
In times past, posture was taken so seriously that classes were given in how to stand, walk and sit correctly. Correct structural use of the body is beneficial in terms of efficiency and physical health, and in terms of well-being, there is a strong correlation between posture and feeling confident.
Just a single session of hypnosis can help correct any postural imbalance or strain and teach you how to deport yourself well — and at the same time instil a new, positive feeling of confidence and self-esteem.
So the answer is… Head up… shoulders back… big smile… and you’ll be ready for anything life throws at you!
