Brain Fog Hypnotherapy

Therapeutic Hypnosis Counselling Therapy Treatment for Brain Fog

Typically, brain fog symptoms include having moments of experiencing:

  • Feeling like your head is cloudy or foggy
  • A general lack of mental clarity
  • A sense of detachment from what is going on in the present moment
  • You might feel emotional quickly
  • You may feel like you have to work really hard to process everyday tasks or think of a simple plan in relation to everyday life.
  • Have difficulty concentrating on the task in hand
  • You feel as if your mind constantly wonders making it difficult to concentrate or focus on what you are doing.
  • You might be forgetful regarding simple tasks like taking your keys with you when you go out.

If you are suffering from brain fog I can probably help you to recover your clarity of thought.

 

But I'm probably getting ahead of myself. Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm Peter Back.

I’m a hypnotherapist and psychoanalyst in private practice here at the Surrey Hypnotherapy clinic, in the Woking and Guildford area of Surrey, UK.

 

Brain fog is a general term for a set of symptoms that affect the cognitive processes.

 

Brain fog (also known as Mental fog, or Clouding of Consciousness) is not a medical condition in itself, but rather brain fog occurs as a common feature of other conditions.

 

These conditions include:

  • Autoimmune disorders like lupus, coeliac disease and multiple sclerosis;
  • Neurological conditions such as myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) and chronic migraine;
  • Depression and anxiety;
  • PTSD;
  • HOCD;
  • Covid-19;
  • Long Covid;
  • Joint Hypermobility Syndrome/Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome
  • The systemic pain syndrome fibromyalgia;
  • And following treatment for cancer.

When brain fog strikes, a person can have trouble processing information and remembering things.

 

They might also find it difficult to concentrate and pay attention, or that their thoughts are disorganised.

 

Neither progressive nor associated with declining intellect, brain fog can be completely bewildering and erode a person's self-esteem and confidence.

 

Some people with brain fog experience problems with speech and language; it can be hard putting their thoughts into words and finding the right words, and their speech might be slow and confused.

 

Brain fog affects sufferers to varying degrees and with varying frequency, but people commonly report that it's the most debilitating part of their illness.

 

I discovered that I could help people with brain fog by accident !

 

Essentially I would be using my therapy on clients to help some other problem and then, part way through their therapy I would ask my clients how well they felt they were progressing with their therapy ?

 

And I started to notice an increasing number of clients would report, in many cases, that, yes, they were starting to feel better with regard to the problem that they had originally consulted me for help with etc. (as expected) - but also they would say things like:

  • My head feels a lot clearer now.
  • My head's feeling a little firmer.
  • I can keep focussed on what I'm doing at work for longer periods.
  • I don't seem to have times of struggling to remember things any more.

I noticed that there was almost a pattern emerging. My clients were consulting me for help with one problem, and in the process of providing relief for that problem they were also experiencing relief for a problem, or symptom, that they hadn't mentioned during our initial consultation meeting, and they weren't aware of it, and they didn't even know that they had the problem !

 

After a while I 'put two and two together' and realised that what they were talking about was likely to be something that is generally known as 'brain fog', and it seemed to be something that would almost 'magically disappear' for these clients during their therapy, whilst on the way to resolving their other problems and issues that had brought them to me for therapy...

 

In effect, these clients had been experiencing brain fog for a number of years, and for so long, that they hadn't even realised that there was anything wrong - they had been thinking that what they were experiencing was 'just them' and 'that was the way they were' !

 

The therapy that I specialise in is similar to the traditional, and established, psychoanalysis type therapy that you may have heard of, where you effectively lie on a couch with your eyes closed, speaking out your thoughts to me, your therapist

 

The difference with what I actually do is that the traditional psychoanalysis type therapy approach only really works well when the client is nicely relaxed - and so I help the client to first get into a nicely relaxed state by using Hypnosis before starting the therapy.

 

The effect of the enhanced relaxation is that it makes it easier for you to access, and identify, the particular problem areas that you have. And with this therapy, and my special techniques, we work together to identify and rectify the cause(s) of your brain fog and maybe also any other symptoms that you might have, as well.

 

And the benefit of using Hypnosis in the way that I do is that it greatly accelerates your therapy – and reduces a traditional, 'old fashioned', psychoanalysis type therapy down from about 1000 hours, of seeing a therapist maybe 3 times a week for 4+ years, to something more like just 9-12 hours of therapy over 6-8 weekly sessions !

 

If you would like more information on how this successful treatment could help you to recover your mental sharpness, and your clarity of thought and thinking, please contact me to arrange a FREE initial, and confidential, consultation, and get started on changing your life straight away.

Please Note

With the advent in the UK of the coronavirus, and the UK government's sudden 'lockdown' insistence upon travel restrictions, social distancing and social isolation, I was encouraged by many of my clients at the time to see if it might be possible for them to continue their therapy with me using an on-line, internet based, approach - maybe based on using a Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) provider, such as Skype, or similar.

 

I might stress that I really am indebted to those clients, for all their encouragement at that time, because it did eventually prove possible to overcome the early 'teething problems' and establish a reliable method for providing effective therapy to people online, over the internet - and all without them having to leave the comfort of their own homes !

 

And of course the effect of this is that travel is now no longer the obstacle to accessing effective therapy that it used to be - and I am now able to easily provide effective therapy to many, many, more people, who may be almost anywhere in the world !

What is Brain Fog ?

Brain fog is a loose term which describes a feeling of mental fatigue. It can occur if you are experiencing chronic stress, chronic fatigue, post -traumatic stress disorder or have had a recent traumatic experience.

Symptoms of Brain Fog

Your brain fog symptoms might include one or all of the following:
 

  • Feeling like your head is cloudy or foggy
  • A general lack of mental clarity
  • Tired eyes
  • A sense of detachment from what is going on in the present moment
  • You might feel emotional quickly
  • You may feel like you have to work really hard to process everyday tasks or think of a simple plan in relation to everyday life.
  • Have difficulty concentrating on the task in hand
  • You feel as if your mind constantly wonders making it difficult to concentrate or focus on what you are doing.
  • You might be forgetful regarding simple tasks like taking your keys with you when you go out
  • You might feel chronically fatigued a lot of the time even if you have had a reasonable night’s sleep.

Causes of Brain Fog

Possible cause of brain fog include:

  • Diet can contribute to brain fog. You may experience brain fog if you have a deficiency in vitamin B12. Foods which can also contribute to brain fog symptoms include MSG (often found in processed food and Chinese food), aspartame (artificial sweetener) peanuts and dairy. Eating an unhealthy diet full of unprocessed sugars and trans fats can contribute to brain fog. Unhealthy vegetable oils can cause brain inflammation resulting in brain fog.
  • Hormonal changes can lead to brain fog. Specifically low oestrogen levels when going through the menopause can impeded concentration and thinking. The hormones of progesterone and oestrogen can increase during pregnancy which can cause difficulties relating to memory and thinking.
  • Some medications can have side effects including brain fog. If you think you are experiencing brain fog as a result of medication consult your local pharmacist or local doctor to find an alternative medication.
  • Substance Abuse and addiction to alcohol and recreational drugs can lead to brain fog.
  • Medical conditions can also contribute to brain fog symptoms. These might include: Anaemia, autoimmune diseases, hypothyroidism, migraines, diabetes and depression.
  • Lack of sleep or lack of quality sleep
  • Prolonged periods of stress, anxiety and depression

And the last one in the above list 'Prolonged periods of stress, anxiety and depression' can easily occur whilst coping with, or having had to cope with, the effects and/or care and treatment of a major medical health condition, such as, for example:

  • Autoimmune disorders like lupus, coeliac disease and multiple sclerosis;
  • Neurological conditions such as myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) and chronic migraine;
  • Depression and anxiety;
  • PTSD;
  • HOCD;
  • Covid-19;
  • Long Covid;
  • Joint Hypermobility Syndrome/Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome
  • The systemic pain syndrome fibromyalgia;
  • Cancer treatment.
