Until relatively recently scientists believed that our habitual thought patterns were laid down in our late teens, early twenties, and that they were pretty much fixed for life. But modern brain scanning techniques have turned this idea on its head. It seems that our brains remain 'plastic' right up into old age. Neuroplasticity refers to our brains' ability to forge new connections, essentially changing the way we think.
As a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist I help clients tap into this natural ability of the brain, enabling them to change unhelpful thinking habits (anxiety, fears, worries, obsessive thoughts etc). I love this short video which explains the way we can all change the way we think. In fact, I often show it to new clients to set the scene for the work we'll be doing during therapy.
