Can hypnotherapy help you get a better job?

It's not easy to move your career forward if you find it difficult to promote yourself. Although I write about stress management on this blog, I'm also an Advanced level hypnotherapist, and I'm going to look at how including hypnotherapy in your stress management programme could help you achieve more in your career.

Improving your career is not easy if you don't have the basic tools. Without life skills to provide you with the push you need, in all likelihood you won't be able to move ahead as you want, no matter how good your academic accomplishments, experience or contacts are.

Hypnotherapy could help you put your best self forward.

Can you identify with any of the following problems?
  • You end up avoiding interviews because you feel certain you will fail. 
  • You get exceedingly anxious before and during interviews, and feel reticent or  embarrassed about revealing your life skills and accomplishments. 
  • You avoid talking with management wherever possible in your current job because you feel that it's only a matter of time before they determine that you're not worthy of your current job position. 
  • You dodge networking events because you feel unable to communicate effectively with other people. 
  • You avoid putting yourself forward for promotion as you feel that you won't represent yourself well, or that you're not suitable for the promotion. 
  • You judge yourself more harshly than other people judge you.
If any of these problems ring true with you, hypnotherapy might help you to achieve that promotion.

What holds you back in your career?

When your own thoughts stand in the way of you and your next career step, there are ways to change your thoughts for the better. Hypnotherapy could help you discover why you feel the way you do, and most importantly, help you to move forward.

Hypnotherapy is different from other 'talking therapies' because it helps you to get into the unconscious beliefs that drive your negative thoughts, so you can make the changes you need to make. It is not just about thinking positively, it's about creating automatic and better responses to events like interviews, that in the past would have made you feel anxious.

Hypnotherapy could help you:
  • Rely upon yourself, your capacities and your talents so you feel more confident. 
  • Communicate effortlessly, confidently and calmly in all of life's situations, not just interviews. 
  • Gain understanding into why you used to get anxious, and redirect those old responses into more advantageous behaviours.
Of course, we are talking here about confidence and not competence! Training and career development are probably what you need if you lack the practical knowledge or qualifications that  employers are looking for (though hypnotherapy could help motivate you to get them).
 
However, if your skills and abilities on paper are just what you need and you’re still not achieving all you are capable of, then think about whether it’s your thought processes that are preventing you from moving forward. If so, it might be the perfect time to consider some hypnotherapy to help you build a new mental skill set and become the best you that you can be.
