Anger - Sadness - Fear - Anxiety
Phobias - Procrastination - Limiting Decisions
These are just a handful of negative drivers that continually drain our energy levels from day to day and often, throughout our life. At these times, it is usual to lose an objective focus on normal situations impacting us and this significantly reduces both the enthusiasm and joy ‘life’ offers.
Negative emotions come in all shapes and sizes and no matter how well equipped we believe that we may be to handle these, their sting is not something to underestimate. The advanced techniques available through Neuro Linguistic Programing, Time Line Therapy TM and Hypnotherapy provide powerful tools that are equipped to tackle these situations and, in so doing, restore a sense of peace, purpose and meaning back into the defragmented life.
The following is an overview of many of the areas that fall within this arena and further information on each is available below.
Anger is a very normal emotion experienced by all people and is triggered through frustrations. For example:
- Situations may not turn out the way they were expected to.
- We do not get what we want.
- Other people are not acting the way we want them to.
Sadness is most accurately viewed as an ‘emotional pain’ that is often associated with feelings of sorrow, helplessness, loss and despair and it is common for people suffering sadness to become lethargic, cry and even isolate themselves from the company of others. Paul Ekman, a pre-eminent psychologist, included sadness as one of the ‘six basic emotions’ namely: Happiness, sadness, anger, surprise, fear and disgust.
Anxiety, unlike fear which is a response to an immediate real or perceived situation, is the anticipation of a threat that may, or may not, occur in the future. It embraces the draining feelings of fear and worry and usually involves making a generalised disproportional focus on the situation.
Phobias present themselves in many different ways and most people suffer from at least one or two of these irrational fears, for example the six monthly dental check-up or mice. Most often, these do not cause that much trouble and the individual is usually able to keep them under control.
Today, drugs form an intrinsic chunk of societies social fabric; whether they be of a legal or illegal variety they can and do become a true substance of dependence and many, of abuse.
Other Negative Emotions
There are so many more feelings and emotions that creep into our lives shaking us about and draining our energy levels. When these are lingering around, it becomes very difficult to move forward as obstacles arise that inhibit the free flow of our thought and decision making process
When we limit our decisions or beliefs we are doing nothing more than jumping to conclusions without there being any evidence for the conclusion we reach. This concept is often referred to as a ‘critical voice’ and is a problem that occurs with many people.
