How much do you value yourself?

December 11th, 2018

Sometimes people don’t see the value in getting help for themselves and instead feel outraged by needing to pay. So how much do you value yourself?

What are your unconscious beliefs and how important is caring for yourself?

One problem is that people have become conditioned to having much of our medical treatment free or very heavily subsidised.

So let’s be clear, I am stating facts, not whinging. I am a qualified health professional, charging comparable but slightly lower fees than those who are subsidised by Medicare. Government does not pay for hypnotherapy although I am covered by most of the private health funds (not Bupa).

What I do for anxiety, stress and PTSD costs $1,300, takes 3-4 sessions plus a follow up after 2-3 months and is highly effective. It is quick, gentle and most importantly it works. I do not get people to go back over things that are best forgotten and I do allow split payments. I use a special hypnotic process called TRTP or The Richards Trauma Process, which has remarkable results.

The usual subsidised Cognitive Behavioural Therapy treatment or talking therapy takes months, re-traumatises the client every visit and the cost to Government is commonly around $13,000. Ten times more for a worse result. You choose.

What is the value in getting rid of your anxiety, sleeping better, becoming healthier, losing ongoing underlying anger in less than a month without revisiting things you would rather forget?

What would you do if your car broke down, or your fridge? Would you decide it was worth finding the money? Or would you say the price was outrageous and leave it broken?

What is the value in helping YOU?

Sometimes it happens that people feel shocked about the cost of healing themselves. The question is really… How much do you value yourself?

So many clients come to me with the unconscious beliefs that “I don’t matter” and a background of putting themselves last. These feelings have built up throughout their childhood and then are carried on and built up in their adult life.

This belief allows you to be neglected, bullied, to come last in the family’s expenditures.

You don’t matter enough to spend money on getting help for you. You need to spend that money on a new phone or for expensive presents for your kids. There isn’t any left for you to spend on yourself. Has it occurred to you that the best gift for your kids would be a parent who is no longer anxious, angry or unpredictable?

So I return to the first question – how much do you value yourself?

Identifying and clearing clutter

I moved two months ago and it has been a very interesting experience. Downsizing to a smaller more manageable house meant that two thirds of my belongings had to go and this was a slow process and surprisingly difficult.

It’s about identifying clutter and this can be complicated because clutter is not just physical stuff. Its also old ideas, toxic relationships and bad habits.

Some clutter becomes fairly obvious and can be sorted but then there is the rest…

Some things hark back to m...

There is a pattern of behaviour at Christmas

I love Christmas and enjoy looking for thoughtful gifts for my special people at this time of the year but beware of the pattern of behaviour at Christmas. Gifts don’t have to be expensive, just thoughtful.

However the pattern I see in many people is forgetting about the fact that THEY matter, running out of time and money and even cancelling their own care - they don’t want to “waste” time and money on themselves.

If you are falling into this trap please stop and remember that YO...
