Negative Thinking. Excessive Worry. Catastrophising. Helplessness.
Negative thinking can have a serious impact on your confidence, self-esteem or self-assurance. It can lead to depression, anxiety or social phobia.
We all experience negative thinking at times, we all have negative thoughts that hold us back occasionally. But when those thoughts become our outlook, when everything we do or think about is undermined by our own negativity or pessimism then it can have a huge impact on a person’s life and on those around them.
- Feeling uninteresting or boring or that you have nothing of interest or use to say;
- when all your luck seems to be bad and nothing ever works the way it should;
- thoughts of death, illness or mishap;
- when tasks feel they need a supreme effort yet gain little reward;
- a sense of dread, doom or feeling “What’s the point?”
- concerns of what other people may be thinking about you or judging you in some way –
… . . negative thinking will affect people differently, but always has the same effect – to make life hard, to remove the sense of enjoyment and to hold you back.
Negative Thinking can have a serious impact on your confidence, self-esteem or self-assurance. It can lead to depression, anhedonia, anxiety or social phobia.
Most often, people are encouraged to change their attitude or think positively – which would be fine if it were only possible for them! No one chooses to suffer in this way and if it was possible to simply change their outlook or attitude they would have done so eagerly.
Affirmations are another common recommendation – ‘being kind to yourself’, positive self-talk, telling yourself how good, kind, attractive, interesting, capable or lovable you are – however this often only increases the problem and makes a person more certain that the opposite is true as, logically, they know that the only reason they are having to use these positive messages is because there is a problem there, so such affirmations only serve to reinforce the fact that things are not as they should be.
Clearly there must be some reason why you are so hard on yourself, why you feel the way you do, why your expectations are low or negative or doom-laden – and Lesserian Curative Hypnotherapy aims to identify what that reason is so that it can be disposed of completely.
In disposing of the cause of those thoughts, your outlook and attitude automatically change – there will be no need to try to think positively as there will be no negative thoughts to attempt to overcome.
While the type, severity and effect of these thoughts differs with each individual, and of course the reasons why they suffer will be entirely unique – on average, it is likely to take in the region of 6 to 8 sessions of LCH treatment to change the way you think – automatically.
When negative thoughts no longer infect your mind, when you see the positive in yourself and in situations, your humour returns, your life becomes oh-so-much easier and you are allowed to become the person you were meant to be.
