Defining your own day. Not letting others do it for you

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
