Have you ever really wished you could forget something that happened to you? Maybe you have a memory that’s often replaying in your head, out of your control, taking you back to somewhere you’d rather not be.
Our memories are a big part of who we are and we need some ‘fear’ memories to keep us safe, how else would we know not to touch a hot iron or run out into the road. Our brain is really good at using fear to keep us from harm but problems arise when a strong fear memory hijacks you and begins to take over your life triggering anxiety, panic attacks, phobias or flashbacks, sometimes even leading to coping mechanisms such as using alcohol to blank things out and generally stopping you from being the person you could be and living the life you could have.
Did you ever see ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’? It really stuck in my mind and I wished I could erase some of my own memories. I always kept an eye out for anything that might help and years later I discovered Cognitive Hypnotherapy which finally helped me be free from the old loop playing in my head. We all have things we’d rather forget and if you’re feeling like this the good news is Cognitive Hypnotherapy can help you too.
