It is said the senior community are poor subjects for hypnosis. That tends to be far from the truth. We have found that age is just a number and it tends to be more of a state of mind rather than a condition of the body. Many of our seniors with a younger state of mind have the ability to think, act, and even look younger than they actually are. This has given them the ability to walk circles around their younger counterparts at times. Read on and find out why seniors are great subjects for hypnosis.
What are the Problems?
Seniors, for the most part, deal with a lot of the same issues as the younger generations. They too have hopes, dreams, and fears. When they are experiencing problems in their lives, they too are subject to anxiety, stress, depression, and other emotional difficulties. For most of these problems, hypnosis is the perfect solution whether you are young or old.
Seniors too have to deal with habit control, attitude adjustment, phobic reactions, and fear of illness. As their earning days come to an end, concerns of assets and liability as well as income loom overhead.
Then it comes to new scientific and technological breakthroughs. These advancements place them behind the times, making it an overall stressful situation for seniors. Self-esteem and self-confidence go into a decline and those types of downtrends will make them feel they are no longer interesting to others. Withdrawal follows, accompanied by loss of sense of self-worth. This will increase withdrawal tendencies and enters into a cycle that can be completely devastating.
It’s All So Unnecessary
Hypnosis and hypnotherapy have special capabilities. Attitude and behavior modification, the regeneration of self-esteem and self-confidence and motivation are necessary. Clients can be brought to realize that they don’t need scientific savvy to be interesting people. The senior community can discover that younger generations have much to learn and must turn to the older and wiser seniors for information and guidance. They can rediscover themselves through part-time jobs and volunteering in their communities, quickly convincing themselves that they’re needed and are of high value to the younger generation.
Most hypnosis or hypnotherapy achieves success by focusing on one problem at a time. Dealing with what has been sometime referred to as “The Fountain of Youth” program can take a broader approach. Meaning several elements can be involved and all add up to a single problem; feeling old and out of touch.
With hypnosis and hypnotherapy, the first step is the establishment of trust, the development of a rapport in which the client is willing and able to listen without a pre-established disbelief.
Some members will respond more rapidly and with greater enthusiasm than others. Not only that, but the inter-communication will tend to elevate the laggards. Once participants become comfortable with hypnosis, individual sessions can use regression to recall periods of high self-worth.
With progress comes increased self-esteem and the development of self-confidence. The power of visualization can be used to create mental pictures of success, achievement of goals, and new levels of acceptance.
