The unconscious mind automatically strives to minimise discomfort and maintain an inner harmony / balance. But what the unconscious mind thinks is harmony, is based on patterns of behaviour that have become established over time. What it assumes, through practise, are comfortable behaviours, are not necessarily healthy or beneficial to us.

Whatever habit people develop over time, whether it be nail biting, thumb sucking, blushing, reliance on alcohol, bed wetting or disturbed sleep patterns, their quality of life will be influenced by it. For many people the impact is manageable. But, for some, habits have a far reaching effect, constraining choices, negatively influencing behaviours and reducing perceptions of self control, self-confidence and self-worth.

When a person attempts to alter a habit consciously, perhaps through will power, feelings of conflict often result because the unconscious mind is not experiencing what it expects. Individuals typically become uncomfortable, restless, irritable, fixated and stressed. So, to become comfortable again, the individual reverts to old ways.

Hypnosis can melt away this conflict. Habit transformation hypnotherapy is becoming an increasingly popular form of treatment for those individuals who are committed to transforming their habits. It addresses the root causes of individual habits, helping to override old, automatic patterns of behaviour and physical responses, rapidly establishing new, more positive responses to specific triggers. Habit transformation hypnotherapy also helps to build self-confidence and self-esteem in the process.
