After the blissful feelings of the proposal comes the reality of planning your wedding.
Time can run away with you, and the mix of emotions you feel, coupled with choosing the perfect venue and dealing with wedding dress dramas or family problems can cause a lot of stress. Not to mention the wedding nerves you might have over being the centre of attention or having to make a speech.
Hypnotherapy can help to banish wedding nerves and stress by clearing the mind, improving your focus, and giving you the tools to make your wedding day a happy and positive experience.
How can hypnotherapy help?
Engagements tend to be longer these days, and this means there’s a longer period of stress. This is not mentally or physically healthy for brides or grooms. Hypnotherapy can help to reduce stress and nerves from the wedding planning stage to the big day itself.
Hypnosis and wedding planning
There’s enormous pressure for everything to be perfect on a wedding day, and it’s common for couples and their families to argue and lash out at each other when the stress builds up. Hypnosis can help you keep perspective and approach your wedding day with happy anticipation instead of anger and hurt feelings. It can also help you to learn to relax, which will encourage a healthier state of mind during wedding planning. If you’re a habitual worrier, you might feel like that won’t change, but hypnotherapy can change your habits and behaviour, so you won’t sweat the small stuff so much.
Wedding planning problems and what your hypnotherapist can do
Feeling stressed about everything going to plan – This is very common, but deep down in your subconscious, you know your wedding day will be amazing. Your hypnotherapist can work with you to encourage positive thoughts and beliefs, and to stop wedding stress before it hits.
Feeling overwhelmed – Seeing family and friends you haven’t seen in a while can stir up emotions, and so can having a million things to deal with at once. Your hypnotherapist will be able to help you work on thinking about one thing at a time and being in the moment.
A note about self-care
Even when you’re busy and feeling the pressure, make sure you take time out for yourself. Whether you go for a massage, a mini spa day, or you just do something as simple as go for a walk regularly, you need to look after yourself, mentally and physically.
Hypnosis and your wedding day
Even if you planned everything down to the most minute detail, the surge of emotions you get on your wedding day can cause nerves. You’re in love, and you’re happy, but you’re also about to make a huge commitment. Being nervous is completely normal.
Hypnosis can help you think about how you feel and why you feel like that, and you’ll learn a lot about yourself in the process. After your hypnotherapy session, you’ll be equipped with the tools you need to be able to enjoy every minute of your wedding day, just as you deserve to.
Hypnosis and public speaking nerves
The Groom, Best Man, Father of the Bride or other members of the wedding party will be called upon to make a speech and speaking in public is enough to make even the most fearless person nervous. A fear of public speaking is one of the most common phobias. Hypnotherapy can really help people overcome nerves and make them feel confident and in control by using techniques like suggestion and visualisations to remove the fear of speaking in public.
