Work place issues are a popular topic on social media – articles on Linked In by Dr. Travis Bradberry, President at Talentsmart, discusses the “9 Worst Mistakes you can ever make at work.”

Dr. Bradberry mentions backstabbing, gossiping, negativity, telling lies and even eating smelly food can create a negative impact on the morale of your entire workplace.

Clinton Buelter, a recruiter and founder of discusses “12 things I learned the Hard Way.”  His advice focuses on self-improvement, ways to be yourself and develop a mentality to serve others.

If you have issues in the workplace, get assistance from a professional to assess your strengths and weaknesses.  After an impartial assessment, cognitive behavior as well as hypnotherapy are excellent ways to build on your strengths and direct your focus on areas that need improvement.  For example, many people suffer from public speaking anxiety, which can usually be helped with a few sessions of hypnotherapy.

Learning to improve your work place performance will help to maximize your professional opportunities, advance your leadership potential and improve relationships both personally and professionally.

How to Overcome Fear of Flying

Many people, regardless of age, gender, or social status, suffer from a fear of flying (aviophobia).  This is understandable, particularly since the September 11th tragedy and the more recent air tragedies.  The anxiety that is experienced due to flying may be a combination of other phobias, such as fear of heights (acrophobia), fear of closed in spaces (claustrophobia) along with some of these other common fears:  fear of what might happen, loss of control, terrorism, fear of technology/mechanical failure and/or fear of pilot error.

Although statistically flying is safer than driving, it is not very reassuring for someone who suffers from fear of flying.  Cognitive therapy is a good way to learn to separate the reasons for your fears from reality and to re-evaluate your thinking patterns and behavior.

Hypnotherapy is very effective in learning adaptive automatic reactions through the use of imagined exposure of flying while relaxed through hypnotherapy.   Through these techniques Dr. Rebeck can probably alleviate or even cure your fear of flying.  Many people experience a pleasant surprise after treatment with hypnotherapy, removing the fear and dread of the return flight after vacation and find that they enjoy their entire vacation.

Emotional Aspects of Medical Illness

Medical illness affects your life in many ways, depending on the type and severity of the illness.  While medical illness is diagnosed and treated, often the emotional aspects of medical illness are overlooked.  Chronic illness, long-term treatments and terminal illness will most certainly affect you and your family.  Many of the emotional aspects associated with illness are:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety/Fear
  • Grief/Sadness
  • Anger/Denial

Emotional problems can occur at any age during an illness and are often compounded by sleep disturbances or medication side effects related to the illness.

Talk therapy and hypnotherapy are effective treatments for these emotional issues and can help you and your family to work through the emotional issues and come to terms with the reality of the medical illness.  Learning how to cope with the emotional issues will also help in the long run, whether the medical illness is chronic or temporary.
