When the problem involves a relationship, it is preferable to work with both people at the same time. This is still the case even if the source of the problem appears to be the apparent insecurity, jealousy or blocked emotions of only one of the people involved.
It is recommended that interpersonal difficulties be dealt with in an interpersonal manner, that is, with a partner whenever possible. By involving the partner in the process, it then becomes possible to alter the outcome of the undesirable behaviour and to break down the dynamic that had supported it in the past.
For example, insecure persons seem unable to trust either themselves, or the relationship, their constant demands for reassurance can exasperate even the most loving and caring of partners, and eventually destroy the relationship. This disastrous outcome only reinforces their insecurity. Similarly jealousy tends to produce the very outcome the person is trying hardest to prevent.
Finally, blocked emotions, or the withholding of interpersonal commitment, appears to be the most common form of protection against getting hurt, but by holding back their emotions that person almost guarantees that their partner will eventually end the relationship. Once again, the original concerns are confirmed and the outcome that was feared is exactly what occurs.
Hypnotherapy can and will help partners overcome these problems by offering each member of the relationship suggestions for an alternative approach. The goal being to break down the destructive cycle and create a rewarding, and meaningful relationship. Relaxation once again plays a very big part in this approach, because only when partners are absolutely relaxed in each others company, will the relationship bloom.
