Avoiding burn out- become selfish to be selfless

Thu 03 Oct 2019 - 12:12

What burn out is and how to avoid throwing yourself off the cliff edge.

Definition: A state of emotional, physical and mental exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress.
Often in my work as a Clinical Hypnotherapist clients will present themselves in a state of burn out or heading towards it, at the speed of an express train.

“I have tried everything else and coming to see you is my last hope” No pressure to perform eh?

When you decide you want to do something new, or reach that goal you have always wanted, just how exactly do you do that?

Let me look at some of the things I decided when I was a child that I wanted to be:

Here in the heart of West Lothian, close to the town of Livingston and nestled in the middle of Linlithgow, Dechmont, Broxburn, Uphall, and the The Calders lives a wise and gentle soul, a bit wacky, a bit unusual, certainly a dedicated Crone who serves the community as best she can providing a warm welcome, hypnosis, and support to those both living here and passing through.

​One of the most delicate areas of work that I have the privilege of working with parents in, is in the realms of conception, pregnancy and birth. I have often considered the fine line between life and death. Nothing focuses my attention on this balance more than working with both women and men in and around fertility and parenthood. This includes when that journey involves the loss and grief of infertility, recurrent miscarriages, stillborn babies and infant mortality.

I wondered how to share this message with all of you who will read it. I decided simply to tell it as it is and to give you an inside picture of my mind. That’s right… an inside picture of your Hypnotherapist's and Doula's mind…

This month just gets better and better. As I say to ALL my hypnosis clients…repeat after me: “Every Day in EVERY WAY, I AM getting better and better”. So, EVERY DAY for the next 10 Days say this x 10 daily and see for yourself...say it like you mean it, emphasis on the I AM. It makes little difference whether you want to change bad habits into good ones; stop self-sabotaging eating patterns; gain more confidence; or reduce anxiety this short mantra will help you in your efforts to get more out of life..

Hello peeps, today I am in warm Glasgow sitting outside drinking frothy coffee and appreciating the opportunity of being ‘On  Call’ for a west of Scotland family. Glasgow, like everywhere else, is beautiful in the sun and the people smile more while the sun shines; and because they are not all encased in winter coats and hidden under umbrellas, I people watched. In about 30 minutes, I am sure I saw many from the Far East, the Middle East, Europe, America and South America. Aren’t humans colourful!
