Hypnosis is a powerful tool to reduce the reaction of being defensive in situations. Hypnosis is 100% natural and prescription-free. Easy online scheduling available 24×7.

Do you feel like you are too defensive and sensitive to constructive criticism?  Someone who is too defensive always looks for an emotional attack toward them.

Many times, constantly being on the prowl for something bad tends to cause us to find it, even if its not realistic.  If you continually think someone is “coming toward you for trouble” it becomes difficult if not impossible to grow, learn and develop.

Why be so defensive?

The American culture along with many others put a high value on perfectionism.  We are to find all the reasons for criticism and eliminate them.  This makes it seem like no one should ever say a bad thing about you.

Commonly, people who are defensive have been criticized a lot in the past and being defensive is a method of protection.

Being defensive is emotion-driven

Being overly defensive is a response to emotions — it is not logical.  In fact, many times we have that feeling we are over-reacting but the emotional part “takes control” and we act irrationally.  Some people relate this feeling with “losing control.”

Studies prove defensiveness causes relationships to break-up

In a study by Psychologist John Gottman, married couples who communicate in a defensive nature were destined to destroy their relationships and not survive the long term.  Study results showed:

• Being defensive wrecks all kinds of relationships, including work relationships
• Its difficult to want to be around someone who is highly defensive as they appear as rude and aggressive

Hypnosis Helps Reduce Being So Defensive

Hypnosis works directly with the subconscious part of the mind, which deals directly with emotions (the change agent).  Hypnosis is a method to calm the part of the brain down that responds without thinking, allowing more level-headed, rational behavior to emerge.

In a study in American Health Magazine, hypnosis and hypnotherapy have a 93% success rate compared with lower results from other methods of therapy which require far more sessions.  Click here to learn more about hypnosis and its high success rate.
