Health is crucial, but it can be elusive for many. So many of our clients come in complaining about their inability to overcome unhealthy behaviors and habits. From smoking and overeating to dangerous sexual behavior and street drug use, people often struggle to win the battle against urges to engage in behaviors that are risky and harmful.
Human beings are infinitely complex, and as therapists, we have the privilege of working with the wonders of the inner world of our clients. While this is rewarding, addressing our clients’ idiosyncrasies can get very tricky, especially if we don’t consider all there is within a person’s innermost experiences.

In addition, self-hypnosis is a tool many people use to manage stress and reduce strain so that it has less of a negative impact on their mental and physical health.
Words can get therapists into a lot of trouble these days. A client can be insulted or alienated by your implying there is something about them that you don’t quite understand or accept, simply by the language you use. It can be like walking a tightrope without a safety net.
