Counselling and Hypnotherapy

Equator Therapies - Joe Busuttil offers Clinical Hypnotherapy, Counselling and Couples Therapy.

Equator Therapies specialises in Counselling and Hypnotherapy.

Contrary to popular belief, hypnosis does not involve deep sleep. We gradually ease you into a deep level of relaxation, allowing you to tune out from your conscious mind and daily activities. We can then acquire access to your willing-to-change subconscious mind. We help you understand hypnotherapy techniques, recommendations, and affirmations so you can reach your goals.

The conscious mind is on standby, whilst the subconscious mind is working overtime. After an in-depth session to determine your specific needs, we suggest ideas, thoughts, and lifestyle changes to you while you are hypnotised. Everyone is different. If you want to overcome a fear of flying, for example, you can accomplish everything consciously, but you will fail if your subconscious mind retaliates.

Reprogramming your subconscious / unconscious mind landscape can aid in long-term growth by confronting and modifying deeply ingrained habits and ideas. During hypnosis, you can remain fully awake and aware of your surroundings and circumstances.

It is vital that you have a strong desire and motivation to quit your behavioural habit or addiction.

What is the definition of counselling?

Counselling is a broad term that refers to a range of talking therapies in which you are given a safe and supportive environment in which to express your concerns and are listened to in a way that allows you to better understand yourself. Counselling’s purpose is to help you find more productive and fulfilling ways of living your life.

Counselling is not the same as talking with a friend. It is far more effective because it does not typically offer advise, but rather provides you with a new perspective, supports you in discovering your own understanding of the problem, and teaches you coping strategies. Furthermore, because your therapist is not personally invested in your situation, talking to a professional is often easier than talking to a friend or family member.

What is Solution-Focused therapy, and how does it work?

As the name implies, Solution Focused Treatment Therapy is a time-limited psychotherapy approach. It helps you improve your current circumstances, acquire confidence, and set goals for your ideal future.

SFT is based on the principle that just because an issue is complex does not mean that its solution must be as well.

Unlike other talk therapies that concentrate on your past, solution oriented therapy only looks backwards to help you uncover your strengths and recall times in your life when things were more how you wanted them to be. This gives you a more balanced perspective of yourself and shows you the skills you may use in your life to restore your sense of accomplishment.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Do you find yourself enslaved by negative thoughts?

It’s easy to blame yourself when things go wrong in life – from breakups to troubles at work or with family members – but if you become locked in a downward spiral of negative thinking, you’ll feel hopeless, sad, and physically fatigued.

CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) can help in this situation. CBT, unlike other types of psychotherapy, focuses on the problems and difficulties you’re having right now, rather than concerns from the past.

CBT is based on the idea that it is the interpretations you attach to events that upset you, not the events themselves. If you continue to hold on to the same attitudes and habits of behaviour while failing, this might become a problem.

Couples Counselling

Is there an issue in your relationship?

Are you and your partner always arguing or complaining, with no end in sight? Is it conceivable that your communication has totally failed? Perhaps you don’t trust each other or are struggling with intimacy as a result of an affair? Or has one of you been hiding something from the other, such as bills or an addiction?

While all relationships can suffer from the rising demands of daily life, unresolved stress can leave you exhausted, depressed, desperate, and low on self-esteem.

When a relationship reaches a breaking point, it may appear that the only option is to separate or divorce, but discussing your concerns with a qualified relationship counsellor can help.
