Cognitive Hypnotherapy for Procrastination

in Milton Keynes

 

If you ask most people if they are a procrastinator they will often reluctantly tell you about all the things they ‘put off’ doing.

Most people will procrastinate about certain tasks at certain times in their life.  Studies have found that around 20% of adults in the general population are chronic procrastinators.  So this means procrastination is a fairly typical behaviour for a lot of people, so remember you are not alone!

However, there is a difference between general procrastination, which we all do at certain times, and more problematic procrastination.

So if you are a person who finds procrastination has taken over and stopped you from doing the things you want to do; you may want to think about using a combination of Cognitive  Behavioural Therapy and Hypnosis.

This is likely to help you to understand and deal with your procrastination, leading to a more fulfilling life.

What Is Procrastination?

Often people mistake procrastination for laziness and believe it to be a character flaw. However procrastination has nothing to do with being lazy. So, if it isn’t laziness, then what do we really mean by procrastination?

People will often describe procrastination as ‘putting off’, ‘postponing’, ‘delaying’, ‘deferring’ or ‘leaving to the last minute’ – all of which are valid ways of looking at it. My definition is “making a decision for no compelling reason to delay or only partly finish a task or goal you’ve committed too; and instead doing something of lesser importance, despite there being negative consequences to not following through on the original task or goal”.

Where does procrastination reign?

Being a procrastinator doesn’t mean you are necessarily a person who delays or doesn’t complete everything in life, although this may be the case for some people.

There are so many different areas of our lives in which we can procrastinate. Some of these areas may be more obvious (study or work projects for example) and others may be more subtle (health check-ups, changing our diet or exercise routine). Any task we need to complete, any problem we need to solve or any goal we might want to achieve can be a source of procrastination. For many people, there will be certain areas of their life they are able to keep on top of, and certain areas where procrastination reigns.

 “From our first meeting Leigh made me feel comfortable and assured. It’s been a great experience working with her and I’ve made great steps forward in conquering my difficulties with focus and procrastination. Leigh helped me understand the causes of my ‘faffing around’ (as I called it!) and has given me the tools I can use to improve. I often felt overwhelmed trying to juggle my children, work and running a home. The hypnotherapy helped calm my thoughts and emotions, enabling me to concentrate on the tools I can use to focus on getting things done and ultimately relieving stress. With very little time to spare I don’t have the luxury of lack-of-focus and procrastination. I’ve learnt, with Leigh’s help, that in order to tackle the reasons I keep burying my head in the sand, I actually need to start ‘doing’ and this will help break the cycle. It’s a work in progress – but I feel with the tools, tips and CD’s she has provided I can make real progress, now and in the future, towards being the person I’d like to be”. Philippa*
