People who explore hypnotherapy for anxiety often have perfectionist tendencies. People who are perfectionists are often told that their standards and expectations are too high. Having standards and expectations that allow us to grow and expand is important. However, if they are unrealistic people will eventually become frustrated and anxious. 

Not being perfect and making mistakes is viewed as failing rather then as a simple learning opportunity. The fear of failure may result in over extending one’s self and missing deadlines due to the need to cross all “Is” and dot all “Ts”. Avoiding projects all together is a strategy used by procrastinators but often results in guilt and diminished sense of self. Trying to be perfect can be incredibly stressful and can result in self criticism, anxiety and depression. Failing to do what needs to be done can become a habit for people and coupled with the cognitive distortions of perfectionism, the need to be perfect can be debilitating. 

Another important consideration in perfectionism and procrastination is that these attitudes/behaviors can signal a conflict within. While one part of the self wishes or feel compelled to complete an activity in a timely manner with sufficient efficiency, another part has learned to feel helpless and ineffective. 

We are born to be active, to move and to grow. Being a perfectionist and procrastinating causes stagnation. These are learned, conditioned ways of being that can be replaced with healthier alternatives.

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).
