I’ve been doing some training recently, as I do, and I just completed the exam for – ‘passed with flying colours’ apparently, which is nice!
It’s an exciting thing, because passing the exam means I’m the first Hypnotension Practitioner in Berkshire.
Good question. Well, it means that I have had extra training to help people to naturally lower their hypertension high blood pressure, or hypertension, using hypnosis, NLP and various other psychotherapy ‘tools’.
Did you know that around 90% of hypertension has unknown medical causes. It’s possibly due to emotional stresses, maybe from childhood, perhaps because of beliefs about identity – ‘my mum had high blood pressure, so I’m going to get it too’ – that sort of thing.
The trouble is that GP’s don’t tend to have the time to help with anything but the physical symptoms. They want to get your blood pressure down if it’s too high, and quickly, but they don’t have the time or resources to look into the emotional stresses that may be underlying the problem.
I do. And together I’m helping clients to take back the control around their hypertension. And who knows, that may be the difference that makes the difference. It may be that in a short time from now, they go into their GP’s surgery, and their BP is consistently lower than it’s been in a long time. It may be that in time, their GP is happy to think about reducing their medication. Because that’s the GP’s job, not mine, and we always work complementary to the medical professionals, not instead of.
Anyway, if you’re interested, or know someone who’s hypertension might benefit from a the Hypnotension Programme, get in touch for a chat. I’d be happy to talk about it with you.
