Hypnosis Helps Postpartum Depression

Can Hypnosis Help Postpartum Depression?

PostPartumDepression-DivineMindInstitureOf all the complications from childbirth, in today’s world, Postpartum Depression (PPD) is the most common. It is estimated that between 10% – 20% of women in the United States, after childbirth, are suffering with PPD. What most people don’t realize is that it can affect women either during or after giving birth.

A majority of new moms get the “baby blues” for a few days after childbirth, but PPD lasts longer, is more severe, more serious and can interfere with your daily activities.

The signs and symptoms of PPD can be very serious and should not be ignored:

  • Having feelings of sadness, emptiness, hopelessness, moodiness, irritability, anxiety or restlessness
  • Unusual amounts of crying
  • Eating too much or not eating enough
  • Difficulty making decisions or concentrating
  • Frequently feeling angry or full of rage
  • Doubting yourself, especially doubting that you can care for your baby
  • Unable to bond with your baby
  • Uninterested in things or activities that you normally enjoy
  • Having sleep problems, you may oversleep or you may not be able to sleep when your baby is
  • Thinking about harming your baby, yourself, or both

Some of these symptoms seem like everyday feelings, but when they are in conjunction with other symptoms, are intense, and last too long, you should seek help. As a new mother you should never feel shame, or embarrassment…it’s not your fault, it is not a personal flaw, there are outside factors that can lead to PPD:

  • Mental health issues in your family line
  • Changes in hormones after childbirth
  • Psychological adjustment to motherhood, accompanied by fatigue
  • Changes in relationships
  • Lack of support
  • Outside stresses such as finances, job related issues, illness or death

The Effects of Hypnosis on PPD

HypnosisEffects on PPD-DivineMindInstituteHypnosis is very powerful, because it works directly with the subconscious mind…it essentially changes how your brain interprets feelings and thoughts, and can therefore become a very effective way of treating PPD.

Postpartum Depression affects the emotional part of the brain, overpowering rational thinking. During hypnosis, your subconscious will be allowed to get rid of irrational thinking and once again be allowed to have rational thoughts – replacing negative with positive (called reframing). Hypnosis can help you eliminate the feelings of anxiety, guilt and fear and allows you to be the mother you hoped you’d be.

Don’t let PPD take over this special time of your life…

Inner Child Therapy

What is Inner Child Therapy, and Can it Help You?

InnerChild-DivineMindInstituteEveryone one of us has an inner child within us… memories of events or experiences from our childhood, often tucked so deep within our subconscious mind that our conscious mind doesn’t always remember them. Although the event may not be consciously remembered, the impact of the event, which is stored in your subconscious, plays an important part in our everyday lives.

These experiences have contributed to your core beliefs, whether about you, someone else or particular situations. They play a big part in the decisions you make and the way you react to different situations. Their effect is triggered by current challenges you may be facing.

Positive experiences from our early childhood, such as praise, encouragement, hugs and kisses from those we love and trust help build your self confidence, self-image and self-esteem.

Negative experiences such as being ignored, physically or verbally abused or being made to feel unnecessary or unwanted can cause emotional damages that may never heal on their own.

Impact of Childhood Trauma

Negative experiences actually wound your inner child, and can prevent you from achieving your full potential as an adult.

Incidents from early childhood trauma can manifest themselves in various ways:

  • Depression
  • Fear
  • Phobias
  • Anger Issues
  • Addictions
  • Lack of Self-Worth
  • Inhibition
  • Self-Defeating Attitude and Actions
  • Guilt
  • Anxiety
  • Weight Issues

Misophonia

Can Hypnotherapy Help Misophonia?

Misophonia-Divine Mind Insititute“If I hear that sound again, I’m going to scream!”

“Stop making that noise…it’s driving me crazy!”

There are sounds that each of us prefer not to hear…squeaking chalk on the chalkboard…but Misophonia is a condition that is far beyond that.

Misophonia is kind of a funny word, but it’s definitely not a funny condition! It’s an extreme sensitivity to different noises or sounds, not just a mild irritation.

About the Sounds and Noises:

The sounds don’t have to be loud or grating, they are noises we hear everyday. They are typically noises made by other people, and can be as simple as someone clearing their throat, eating or drinking.

These noises can cause you to become irritable, irate and even sometimes irrational.

People who struggle with it often feel:

  • Anxious
  • Angry
  • Depressed
  • Disgusted
  • Rage
  • Stress
  • Panic

These sounds can cause you to avoid people or situations, and if you’re in a situation and the offending noise begins, you might find yourself trying to escape or worse yet, being offensive to the person causing the sound.

Misophonia Interview on 20/20


In the interview it was mentioned that this condition is probably caused by the way the brain is processing the sounds. What better reason to use hypnotherapy, a treatment that works with your subconscious mind?

During your hypnotherapy session, you will be in a relaxed state, where together we can discover what triggers are causing your reaction to specific sounds.

You need to know you are not imagining things, you are not alone and you’re definitely not going crazy! Misophonia is real, and you can get help.

Anger Problems

Do You Have Anger Problems?

Anger Problems - Divine Mind InstituteBeing angry is a natural, healthy emotion we all experience it at one time or another. In fact, it is a necessary emotion for self preservation.

It’s when your anger takes over and you lose control, that’s when it becomes a problem. That’s when your anger is in control of you.

Anger manifests in different degrees, from very mild and irritated to extreme rage…which is when it becomes a very destructive issue leading to emotional, physical and mental problems.

The Effect of Anger Problems

When out of control, your anger issues can prevent you from living an enjoyable life, they can affect your:

  • Health – mental and physical
    • People who have excess anger have actually been known to be at higher risk of heart disease.
  • Relationships – professional and personal
  • Work performance

Anger can cause:

  • Stress
  • Elevated heart rate
  • Sleeplessness

Controlling your Anger

Anger is an emotion that can be hard to control, and you can be angry at things, people or situations. It can be dealt with in different ways; you can try calming exercises, you can try expressing your anger to the offender or you can try to suppress it and keep it bottled inside.

Bottled Up Anger - Divine Mind InstituteKeeping your anger bottled up is not a good option, because you are not letting go of the feelings, and they won’t just go away.

If you have ever been around a person who is extremely angry, someone who seems out of control, you have probably thought to yourself…”relax, just let it go”. Which is exactly what they can’t do. They can’t release the anger.

That is where hypnotherapy can be a great tool, it can help you let go of your anger. Hypnosis helps the mind and body to totally relax and communicate with your subconscious mind. It is then that you may discover why you react to things the way you do, and retrain the way you think to be able to deal with people and situations in a calmer and more acceptable way.

Take back control of your life – let go of your anger – lead a happier life

Imagine your life without anger!
