Our quality of life is greatly governed by the harmony we experience everyday in our life. Our thoughts, actions, experiences all create an impact on the satisfaction we derive from each day.
The moment we find that any fear is not only taking away the joy in our life and we are unable to overcome it on our own, it is time to consider the various options to get rid of it. Healthy options that would enable us to get the professional help we need in overthrowing this fear from our life. The selection of the professional help we may require to overcome our fear is greatly dependent on the intensity of the fear. Hypnotherapists, NLP Practitioners and Psychologists are a few of the professionals who could effectively help individuals overcome fears. In extreme cases, however, where the fear triggers a severely psychologically and physiologically crippling anxiety attack or panic attack, the medicated support of a Psychiatrist is needed.
Elimination of Fear through Hypnotherapy
Many have fears that emerged because of an experience, situation or some seemingly unexplained reason. Among the unexplained reasons, the most common ones are repressed memories. These memories may have been so traumatic that we may not have a conscious recollection of it.
In such a scenario, Hypnotherapy could be one of the effective solutions that could help.
Through hypnosis, a person would be able to understand the memories that lay repressed due to their unpleasantness and distressful nature. It is also a technique that helps us replace negative associations with positive and helpful thoughts. As a therapy it focuses on the impact of constructive suggestions in generating a positive transformation to our perception and demeanor at a subconscious level. Through this therapy, the hypnotherapist eradicates the objectionable or traumatizing associations of the client by altering them with affirmative ones.
Tackling your Fear through NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming)
In the 1970s, Richard Bandler and John Grinder, created a remarkable concept that enabled people to communicate and develop themselves. Their findings helped people to positively change their perceptions, emotions, verbal and non verbal communication and those around them through effective communication. It basically enabled people to be in sync with those around them, thereby enabling them lead more harmonious and productive lives.
Through careful study of the client’s conscious and subconscious mind, an NLP Practitioner, is able to support an individual in overcoming fear.
The aim would be to enable the client overcome the fear by replacing negative constructive behavior with a positive behavior. The positive behavior would enable the client not only behave in a manner that will help themselves but also induce others too to behave towards them in a respectful and positive manner.
As a mind tool, NLP is not only seen to be extremely powerful in bringing about improvement and positive transformation in people but also successful in helping them overcome fears.
Psychologists & their Role in Eliminating Fear
Fears often lead people to lead a challenged existence. It is an existence where the anxiety causing fear takes dominance of the day they lead.
A trained Psychologist can diagnose and relieve the person seeking help to overcome the daily challenges they face due to fear through various techniques. Some of the diverse psychotherapies that are known to be effective in their treatment, include Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Group Psychotherapy. The aim of the treatment is to provide professional support and understanding to the individual handicapped by the fear.
Positive Thinking in Conquering Fear
Last but not least, one of the great ways to get over a fear is to be a positive thinker. Any positive change we wish to see needs to begin with ourselves. Give yourself positive self talk and encouragement to have a positive approach to life. Avoid negative thinking, self talk or the companionship of toxic relationships. Even self doubts and trust issues can play havoc with our happiness in life. Value our life and what we can be grateful for. Regularly giving ourselves positive affirmations would not only make us more positive but one who would have no hesitation in leading a bold and fearless life.
One our biggest hurdles in achieving our happiness in life is fear. As long as we consciously make steps to eradicate it to lead a fear free life, we are closer than we think, to enjoying every moment of our existence.
