Manage Change

Facing a big change in your life? Anxious about the future? Shocked by bad news? Don’t know how to cope?

Change is the only constant in life. As a rule, we accept it and get on with things. But when we face a big change, receive bad news, or have unwelcome change thrust upon us it can be very unsettling. Natural reactions are shock, denial, fear, or hurt. Bad change can cause a lot of emotional pain leaving us feeling overwhelmed and unable to cope.

Whatever the change you are facing – good or bad, anticipated or a surprise – it is important to have a strategy for coping. As your hypnotherapist, I can help you manage change, anticipate outcomes, avoid feeling trapped by self-limiting beliefs and focus on positive outcomes.

Let me help you empower yourself with the confidence and inner strength to manage your change challenge.

Types of change

Gradual change 
Change is a natural and continuous feature of life. It is often said that the only constant is change. By and large, we are accepting of continuous and gradual change and each of us strive to make the most of things along the way. For example, as we grow-up we learn to walk, suffer the angst of teenage years, get a job, make a home, retire. We adjust and get on with life.

Planned change
Then there is change that we plan for and make happen, for example moving house or going on holiday. In these cases, we are in control of the change and we can look forward in anticipation.

Sudden change
Sometimes change can come upon us as surprise, like finding out we are going to be a grandparent or we have won the lottery. Welcome change can make us happy but we can still be cautious or even fearful of how to handle the new situation. For example, at work we may be comfortable in our role and then get promoted. We could be excited about the new challenge and the extra money, but on the other hand apprehensive about the greater responsibility.

Sometimes change can be thrust upon us in an unwelcome manner, such as news of being made redundant, serious illness, or the loss of a loved one. A natural reaction is one of shock, maybe denial and then hurt and anger. Bad change can cause us lots of emotional pain, particularly if we feel we cannot control the cause or outcome.

Change strategies

In all cases of change – gradual or sudden, good or bad – we can manage the transition best if we have a strategy for coping. This is particularly important if the change is unwelcome and we feel disempowered and not in control of the circumstances.

Hypnotherapy is ideal for helping you deal with your change challenge and for developing a strategy just right for you. By relaxing mind and body, I will enable you to use your unconscious to explore in a safe place how the future could unfold. Here you can anticipate likely events, explore your feelings, and rehearse what to say and how to behave in different outcomes (scenarios).

Pushing back the boundaries of self-limiting belief
When facing change, it is very important to push back the boundaries of self-imposed constraint and to see positive outcomes. I will help you identify and reframe any self-limiting, pessimistic beliefs that might otherwise hold you back. I’ll enable you to equip yourself with the determination to achieve your desired outcome and then to live it as a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Let me help you find within yourself the power to make the most of your change challenge. I’ll also provide you with practical tools to make your strategy work for you day-by-day. How wonderful it will feel to be back in control again and confident in your ability to face the future.

Top tips for managing change

Five things to help you manage your change challenge with confidence.

  1. Be positive, choose new aspirations (unbound by fear) and strive for the best outcome. Focus all your energies on what you can do rather than on what you can’t.
  2. Make a plan to tackle the things that need to be done – get practical.
  3. Gather the things needed to carry out your plan.
  4. Prepare yourself emotionally to anticipate the good things and address your worries. There is very little purpose in worrying about situations or events that you can’t control. Choose to affect those things you can. Learn to create room for hope in your life.
  5. Seek advice from a professional, or someone you trust, with experience and knowledge to help you make the right decisions and give support along the way.
