How Hypnotherapy Can Help Overcome the Effects of Bullying

With October being National Bullying Prevention Month, I wanted to talk about different kinds of bullying and how hypnotherapy can help to treat the repercussions.

Kids are often bullied — stats say that 1 in 5 children are the victims of bullying and that a child is bullied every 7 seconds.

Children often won’t tell you if they’re affected. This can be due to fear or humiliation and it can make it hard to know if your child needs help to overcome the effects.

It’s not just kids though. Adults can be bullied too, and it can be just as difficult to admit to.

For children and adults alike, the effects of bullying can be devastating. Anxiety, depression, loneliness, and poor self-esteem can occur because of bullying. In extreme cases, it can result in suicide.

Why Self Care is a Priority and Not Just a Luxury

Hands up if you panic when the battery on your smartphone starts to rapidly deplete? Most of us will take action to keep our devices charged up but don’t apply to the same rules to our own reserves.

Self care can often seem like a luxury rather than a priority, especially if you’re very busy and are juggling several different roles in any given day . In reality, it can be the difference between burnout and staying sane and it can also help you to bounce back more quickly when life gets stressful.

Think of self care as a way to keep yourself firing on all cylinders from a physical and emotional perspective. Instead of always putting yourself last, it’s time to get into the habit of focusing on what you need too.
