Can hypnotherapy help me with jealousy?

Updated: May 30

Jealousy is a complex and often misunderstood emotion. What is its purpose? From a survival perspective, it would have made sense a few million years ago - we had to compete for resources, for a "mating" partner and our safety depended on being part of a tribe. We need to have essential basic needs met. Wanting what others have is one way Jealousy shows up. Sometimes at its root, jealousy is linked to being abandoned. Spotted your SO talking to another man/woman and it fills you with dread? Is it because deep down you are worried that they will leave you. Or that you are not good enough. In modern times, unmanaged jealousy can be a huge paradoxical and counter-productive emotion. Going back to the example of spotting your SO talking to another man/woman. You feel hugely uncomfortable, very jealous and it results in you behaving in a way that starts an argument. You might say "I bet you fancy them" or behave in a clingy insecure way. These behaviours can drive a wedge between you and your partner or spouse. It can lead to the very circumstance you dread the most - being abandoned! If you have ever been on the receiving end of jealousy, you will know how horrible it can feel. So, what can you do about it - before it starts to ruin your relationship? Can hypnotherapy help with jealousy? Hypnotherapy can help with the underlying "drivers" - low self esteem, fear of being abandoned/alone, and people-pleasing/co-dependent tendencies. Imagine if you fully loved and accepted yourself, and you believed you possessed everything you need to have a fulfilling and happy life? What difference would it make to your jealous, even possessive, feelings? Hypnosis is a safe effective therapy that can help you explore your own mind, and change unhelpful beliefs you might hold. These are often hidden. Want to know more? Then get in touch!
