Treatment

 Today there are many alternative therapies to traditional pharmaceutical therapy for creating permanent changes in the mind and body. Hypnosis, NLP, CBT, Kinetic Shift and OldPain2Go are just some of the amazingly effective tools used to help people recover from past traumas, chronic pain, stuck states, fears and phobias. For those that prefer change while they sleep, subliminal tracks specifically target areas in the mind for effective change.

 

Knowing when you’re ready change is very important.

 

According to doctors DiClemente and Prochaska there are six stages to recovery.

If after reading you find you are at the Action Stage (Stage 4) then you are ready and should contact me.

 

1. Pre-contemplation

People in the pre-contemplation stage of change are not even considering change. They may be in denial of their issues or believe that anyone who might point out their problem is exaggerating.

There are four reasons someone might be in the pre-contemplation stage: reluctance, rebellion, resignation, and rationalization. This means reluctant people in this stage may lack motivation or knowledge about change and the vision of their problem may not have come into their awareness.  They have an issue letting go of negative habits because they don’t like being told what to do. This group have given up hope about the possibility of change and are overwhelmed by their issues. 

2. Contemplation

This is the stage of change where a person comes to the realization that they have a problem. However, these contemplators are doing just that, contemplating. This can be a messy process. They might want to change but might not feel like they can commit to it. At this stage, people are researching treatment. They may have a list of reasons but they still cannot make that first step toward change. 

3. Determination

This is the stage where the change actually begins. The weighing of the pros and cons becomes a decision to make a change. They are ready and committed to action. People in this stage also put together an action plan. This is the stage where individuals will assess the difficulty it takes, possibility with the help of a professional. They will come up with solutions to follow for a long-term treatment plan.

4. Action

This is the stage where the plan gets put into action. Normally a person will make a public statement about their commitment and get encouragement from others in their life. They may start attending outpatient treatment, or counseling. People in the action stage are motivated to succeed and have found the support they need to do so. They will continue on their path and new schedule for life. This stage lasts approximately three to six months.

5. Maintenance 

Sustained change takes time to commit to, create, and stick to.  As they become stronger in their recovery, the threat of going back to patterns becomes less of a reality.

 

6. Termination

According to DiClemente and Prochaska, the ultimate goal for the stages of any recovery and change is termination. This is the stage where the person no longer feels threatened by their  choices. They have the confidence to live a healthy and happy life and truly thrive in recovery.
