The Cow Path Model of Change™ is a structured, systematic 6 part model developed by Hypnosis for Life. Hypnosis for Life is the industry leader and one of the longest running clinical hypnotherapy businesses in the Edmonton region. 

The majority of individuals who access services at Hypnosis for Life have, at one time or another: 1) made good use of traditional clinical psychology services  2) made good use of needed medication  3) attended community funded support programs (community counselling, 12 step programs and/or treatment centers).

These options provide initial needed relief, however, relapse is common. Challenges tend to re-occur until the subconscious mind has fully accepted and absorbed new paths of least resistance (aka cow paths).

MAKING THE DECISION TO BECOME MORE CONFIDENT

Becoming more confident requires the decision to build confidence.

The decision to become more confident must be backed up with deliberate, well chosen, incremental action that can be measured.

Often, we know that something needs to change.

Yet, we waver about making a concrete firm decision.

This is because we know that a new decision must be followed up with new actions.

There may be a plethora of individual reasons for failing to make a concrete decision and backing it up with measurable action steps.

However, at the heart of this inertia these “rationales” often exist:

1. we have convinced ourselves that we can learn to be comfortable “enough” with current circumstances -this is a settling mindset.

2. we have convinced ourselves that taking measurable action will be too painful-this is an avoidance mindset.

3. we have convinced ourselves that effort without certainty is wasteful-this is a rigid mindset that sees no value in incremental learning.

If we convince ourselves that any circumstance is “good enough” we will lack the motivation needed to make changes. If we convince ourselves that change is painful we will continue to avoid it. If we convince ourselves that any expenditure of effort without a guarantee is wasted…we may as well retire our vision of a better future.
