Sophie is 8 years old, and she's been working with me on a plan to help her manage her anger and temper. She's been having a tough time lately because her family is going through a big change, and that's been making her feel really upset and angry. Sometimes, when she feels that way, she ignores her teacher, kicks at furniture, and even walks or runs away!
To help Sophie overcome her anger and temper issues, we decided to use a combination of hypnotherapy and emotional freedom technique (EFT). First, we worked on getting Sophie into a relaxed state through hypnosis, where we talked to her subconscious mind to find out the root cause of her anger. We discovered that Sophie was feeling neglected due to her family's busy schedule and that this was causing her to act out.
Next, we used EFT to release the emotional blockages and negative feelings that were causing Sophie to feel angry. This technique involved tapping on specific energy meridians while focusing on the negative emotions and sensations associated with her anger.
Then, we used subconscious negotiation to come up with a plan to manage Sophie's anger in the future. We talked to Sophie's subconscious mind and asked it to come up with a solution that would work for everyone involved. Sophie's subconscious mind suggested that she could ask for more attention from her parents and also find ways to express her feelings in a more positive way.
Together, we drew a picture of a volcano because Sophie said her anger feels like a volcano about to blow! But we also talked about how we don't have to 'burst up and out' like a volcano. We can slow down and calm down instead.
So, we came up with a plan for Sophie to use when she feels angry. She can try closing her eyes and counting backwards from 10, or doing calm breathing by counting slowly to 2 as she breathes in and out. We also talked about how it's okay to ask for help from her teacher or a grown-up when she needs it.
With this approach, Sophie was able to overcome her anger issues and find a positive way to express her feelings. By tapping into her subconscious mind and negotiating with it, we were able to find a solution that worked for Sophie and her family.
