Childhood issues can vary according to each family, but the usual consequence is that people who have had a dysfunctional childhood often grow up to have emotional issues.
These can lead to problems with self-esteem such as lack of confidence, feelings of worthlessness and limiting self-beliefs. Thoughts that often feature are ‘I’m unloveable’, ‘I don’t deserve to be happy’ and ‘I’m not good enough’.
Problems in childhood and their manifestations in adult life often also lead to depression and relationship problems. They can also result in alcoholism, anxiety, drug abuse and eating disorders.
How Can I Help?
Using Emotional Freedom Techniques aka Tapping and/or Hypnotherapy we will work together to remove the negative emotions, minimise the bad memories and re-frame the beliefs formed during childhood. We will also, consider the role of forgiveness and self-compassion in the healing process.
Often, the roots which started in childhood were reinforced throughout life creating neural pathways in the brain and coping mechanisms which no longer serve. Once we have identified the early events that caused this reaction, we use EFT and Hypnotherapy to eliminate the limiting beliefs that have been formed, and we create new positive responses in the brain.
The process can be extremely quick when you consider that we are dealing with things that you have likely carried with you for decades.
