What is negativity bias and could scheduling worry time help you hack the brain's negativity bias, and give you more overall peace of mind?
You're noticing the brain's negativity bias when:
- you recall negative comments more than complements
- you dwell on unpleasant experiences more than pleasant ones
- you give more weight to the cons than the pros in your weighing things up (your evaluations).

Do you ever struggle with unwanted and intrusive negative thoughts? Do you sometimes find yourself engaged in small ‘rituals’ whereby you check your car door is definitely locked again and again and again?
Are you tired of this cycle of endless checking and obsessive behaviour? Are you looking for help to break away from it and so embrace a positive way of managing your life?
If the answer is “yes”, you may find Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help to ease your mind away from thinking endless negative thoughts that can lead to, in extreme cases, you struggling to leave your own home.
We often see people who come to seek help with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
As our daily lives are increasingly stressful in the modern world so, sometimes, our brains struggle to adapt to the challenges we face. As such, it tries to protect us by re-checking things again and again, or introducing obsessive thinking into our lives. Negative thoughts then end up in something we term as a ‘stress bucket’ and people may find themselves re-checking things as part of an unwanted habit.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy aims to empty the stress bucket so allowing the client to have a more relaxed and confident outlook to their life which, in turn, helps them to stop worrying and focus on the positive aspects of life as a whole.
At CFH, we offers a free initial consultation to explain how the brain works and how Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can be beneficial for the client. We also provide a free relaxation CD at the initial consultation.
Each session is designed to focus the mind into a mode of positive thinking prior to entering the trance state, which is designed to be relaxing and soothing for the individual.
The number of sessions used by people who have obsessive feelings can vary and, obviously, as with any medical issue, it is important to remember that your GP is also there to help.
