Recently I have seen a few clients who’s main presenting issue after discussion of what they thought was their issue, was actually allowing other people to determine their mood. It can be a tricky subject to talk about for some, as it can mean admitting and owning that they are more effected by others than they thought. Of course, as a therapist I reassure them that allowing another to change your mood is fairly normal in day to day life. But the trick is to learn how to build a shield around yourself and not allow that negativity into your own mind.
This may seem like a difficult task, but it really isn’t. NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) is a brilliant way to create visuals in your mind to extinguish negative feelings or counteract negative comments or situations. I have used in therapy sessions many times and found it to be a useful tool. Giving a client the empowerment back in their own mind, reactions and feelings is the reason I love doing what I do. It truly is the core of my “being” as a therapist. Putting NLP into hypnotherapy screeds creates a feeling of safety and regained power it can be hard to get by simply reading books or talking to peers alone.
Creating visuals will materialise a more positive energy from yourself to others. You will gain more positive energy from those around you. If anyone is being a drain and you feel exhausted after you have been around them, maybe it is the time to really analyse who you share time with. Are they good for me? Am I good for them?
Have a wonderful day and stay positive. xx
