Disorders

Disorders can benefit from developing new learnt behaviours (positive habits). By helping your mind develop positive learnt behaviours you can begin to take back control of your life, and bring a disorder under control.

Through learning specific techniques that become second nature we can use our ability to form habits which are there to protect us, to improve the effects of disorders. For someone who experiences the smallest relief from a persistent and long term problem can give them the ability to live happier lives and the motivation to work towards event greater relief.

Typical areas we can help with are:

Aspergers Syndrome Relaxation – characterised by preoccupation with a subject to the exclusion of other activities.  Repetitive behaviours or rituals, socially and emotionally inappropriate behaviour and interpersonal interaction and clumsy and uncoordinated movements.  The good news is that your subconscious mind can control all of these things – all we have to do is to show it how it should behave and it will follow accordingly.

Depression Relaxation – Depression can result after any number of life changing events and often we feel as though we just don’t have any control over our own life.

It can be like a spiral that revolves down and around – and it seems so much effort to break free of those miserable feelings.

We have to experience the lows of life in order to really enjoy and appreciate the good times when they come – and they do – because life is a series of ups and downs – like that spiral – you can go either way – you have a choice.

And making that choice sometimes requires just a little bit of effort to change your direction – but you can do it – one of the Universal Laws of Life is that we have free choice.

Some things in life can be changed – you can change your mind – you can change your direction – you can ascend and feel elevated again.

But there are other things in life that we cannot change – and when we encounter these obstacles – for example – like losing someone we love – we just have to accept that situation, and meet the real challenges that are presented to us – like changing the way that we feel.

When this happens it is truly exciting because you can learn to live again – to love again – to be really free of those uncomfortable feelings and enjoy the anticipation that something good is going to happen.

You can reach even greater heights and fulfil your true potential – the potential to live a full and happy and productive life.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) – It is generally considered that people who suffer from obsessive thoughts are often highly intelligent people – and a lot of excess mental energy is invested in carrying out compulsive behaviour.

And even though they know, deep down – that those thoughts are irrational – they find that ignoring compulsive urges to carry out certain repetitive actions would cause anxious and jittery feelings.

Its possible to make friends with OCD – and use your skills and intelligence – and your wonderful, creative mind, to develop a new and healthier obsession – one that will cause you to feel proud of yourself and in control. 

Bladder Control – Urinary incontinence is the unintentional passing of urine. It is a common problem and is thought to affect millions of people worldwide.

It’s not clear exactly how many people are affected, but it’s estimated that between 3 and 6 million people in the UK may have some degree of urinary incontinence.  Urinary incontinence affects both men and women, but it tends to be more common in women overall.

Signs and symptoms – The symptoms of urinary incontinence depend on the type you have, the most common are:

– Stress incontinence – when urine leaks out at times when your bladder is under pressure, for example when you cough or laugh.

– Urge incontinence – when urine leaks as you feel a sudden, intense urge to pass urine, or soon afterwards

It is also possible to have a mixture of both stress and urge urinary incontinence.

Insomnia – Sleep remains mysterious, even to long time sleep researchers, but falling asleep involves slowing the mind and body. People suffering from insomnia find that all but impossible.

People troubled by insomnia often become convinced that sleep is simply unachievable.

The power of positive suggestion enables you to bypass the doubts and worries of the conscious mind… and communicate directly with the subconscious mind. That part of the mind which doesn’t say, “I can’t.”

For most people, the process takes just a few sessions, for more difficult cases we can gently explore possible causes and by resolving these you can look forward once more, to peaceful and restful nights of sleep.

Nervous Twitch Relaxation – There’s no denying that anxiety affects your body. It often seems like anxiety has the ability to move your body involuntarily. Whether it’s something as small as a finger or as large as your entire leg, some type of twitching or shaking is incredibly common.

Muscle twitching can be a strange sensation. In some cases your muscle may even move involuntarily. For those suffering from serious anxiety, it’s also one of the symptoms that can cause a lot of concern, especially in those with health anxiety.

Controlling your anxiety is extremely important, because the mind can cause you to create the body reactions that you fear.

In other words, if you’re worried about your muscle twitching, your muscles may be more likely to twitch. It’s just another reason that regaining control of your thoughts and worries is such an important tool for controlling anxiety.

Anxiety reduction is not something that will occur overnight,  but there are several proven techniques for essentially eliminating anxiety from your life altogether.

Bulimia – Bulimia nervosa is an eating disorder and mental health condition.

People who have bulimia try to control their weight by severely restricting the amount of food they eat, then binge eating and purging the food from their body.

As with other eating disorders, bulimia nervosa can be associated with: low self-esteem, alcohol misuse, depression, self-harm.

Eating disorders are often associated with an abnormal attitude towards food or body image.

Everyone has their own eating habits – for example, people with a food intolerance need to avoid eating certain foods to stay healthy. However, people suffering from eating disorders tend to use their eating habits and behaviour to cope with emotional distress, and often have an abnormal or unrealistic fear of food, calories and being fat.

Vertigo – Have you been experiencing uncomfortable feelings – feeling unsteady, giddy, or having a sensation of movement, spinning, or floating which as you probably know is a symptom of a balance disorder within your ear.

Vertigo is a symptom, rather than a condition itself. It’s the sensation that you, or the environment around you, is moving or spinning.

This feeling may be barely noticeable, or it may be so severe that you find it difficult to keep your balance and do everyday tasks.

Attacks of vertigo can develop suddenly and last for a few seconds, or they may last much longer. If you have severe vertigo, your symptoms may be constant and last for several days, making normal life very difficult.
