Reese Witherspoon hypnotized to overcome her insecurities
Reese Witherspoon who was nominated in the Best Actress category for her portrayal of Cheryl Strayed in 'Wild' at the academy awards last night was hypnotized to overcome her insecurities.
She would have panic attacks and feel insecure before starting a new role in a movie.The insecurities came from being told that she was too short or not thin enough to have the kinds of roles she would like to play. She was told she was "too cute and girlie."
She is quoted saying: "[Hypnosis] was so helpful. I get panic attacks, especially right before I start a movie "Half the time on set I feel like I'm hanging on by the seat of my pants and I don't know what the heck I am doing."
You might wonder does hypnotherapy work. Could it be that easy to solve some of your long standing problems? The answer is yes. First you need to understand what hypnotherapy is. It is a totally natural state of mind. When doing hypnotherapy with a trained hypnotherapist you will feel very relaxed and peaceful. You might even wish that the session could last forever, it is so enjoyable!
Hypnotherapy has been widely misunderstood perhaps because of stage hypnosis. It is a form of entertainment and has nothing to do with hypnotherapy. There is a misconception that you might loose control, when in fact you are actually more in control and more focused! Hypnotherapy is a professional partnership between the hypnotherapist and the client. A person cannot be hypnotized unless he or she agrees and co-operates.
Hypnotherapy is a valuable therapeutic tool for enhancing a client’s self-awareness and helps them to assume responsibility for healing themselves as well as giving them the tools and skills they need to do so.
Hypnosis is one of the quickest ways to get where you want to go and the most enjoyable that I know of, because all the while you are in a deeply relaxed state, the work is being done! You and your therapist go on an inner journey together and when things come up your therapist can guide you through it in a way that can help heal past traumas, wounds, addictions, whatever it is that you are struggling with. It is done in a gentle but very effective way. Usually in 4 to 5 sessions most of my clients find the relief they were looking for or resolve the problem that they came in with. That isn’t to say that more work doesn’t need to be done on their own; and scheduling a tune up once in awhile but that has been my experience.
