Looking for Help with Motivation?

There are many kinds of motivation.  Motivation can be positive, negative, helpful or constructive.  You might think that motivation is always good, but there’s a little more to it than that.

To understand just how Hypnotherapy and Hypnosis for motivation can help, then you must begin with an understanding of how the brain works, and how our physiology may help or hinder our best intentions, even though we really are trying hard. This is all covered at the initial consultation.

The mind doesn't work in mysterious ways.

In fact, we now know that feeling motivated is actually a chemical process in the brain that produces these things called neurotransmitters.  The one we talk about the most is called serotonin. When the brain and the body produce a constant flow of serotonin, then we absolutely do feel positively motivated towards achieving positive outcomes.

The operative word here is ‘positive’.  And as a side effect of this, we also feel calm and relaxed as opposed to stressed and on edge.

What's Positive Motivation?

What many people don’t realise is that if you take a step back from the situation, and consider the effects of our actions, then it’s safe to say that getting in too much of a hurry to complete a task can be counter productive.  

It’s easy to wait until the last minute and then over do our efforts to complete a task or tasks, racing from one thing to the next, then getting completely burned out.  We’d argue that this is a very common strategy, which does not yield the best results in the medium to long term.

Long-term Motivation help

The problem with an adrenaline-fueled approach like this is that it directly affects our physiology in a way that does not optimise the brain for peak performance.  We need to be working smarter, not faster if we are to have stamina.  So, motivation is not just about getting things done, but rather getting the right things done in the right order.

When we can bypass old established default thought patterns, then we can use our intellect to simply know better. This is where we start to see the best results.

We help YOU identify the BABY STEPS and take the BIG LEAPS in order to achieve positive and lasting motivation

Get Started

Many people get the order wrong

Waiting for the moment when you feel motivated is not the most helpful approach, becuase this strategy totally misses the point.  We first need to get on and do what needs doing so that we then get the reward for that achievement.

This reward is actually a chemical process in the brain that produces serotonin. Serotonin then helps us to build our levels of motivation consistently over time, to a more self-sustaining level.

It does not matter where you begin this journey.  In fact, you have already begun. If you are reading this you are already considering ways to get moving forward.

Anything that's positive is positive

You might like to consider that anything which you do that is inherently positive for you in some way is a good place to start.  Any positive action, interaction, or thought will contribute to your motivation, but you must been looking for this consistently.  

At the same time, you must turn your attention away from anything that is negative for long enough to gain objectivity in how you assess your situation.  And you must look beyond you current reality to get clear on what is the right thing for you tomorrow, and put your best foot forward.

Hypnotherapy for Motivation

Our hypnotherapists help with the motivation not by telling you what to do.  They believe instead that you know better than anyone how to move forward.  But they do not what questions to ask to help you identify your goals and the required actions.

They also offer an alternative perspective on what you think and how you interpret situations. They teach you methods of altering your thought patterns and interpretations in a way that allows you to go on promoting the production of serotonin. It’s more about getting the right toolkit for life than a form of therapy.
