Do you find yourself in an environment that refuses to accept your identity simply because it challenges the norm? Are you struggling with an inner dialogue that criticizes and shames any honest expression of yourself? Perhaps you’re in constant search of a validation, even a small reason, to believe you’re enough.
If any of this resonates with you: It’s time to step into your truth.
For years, Coral Gables Hypnosis has worked closely with the LGBTQ community to heal the guilt and self-rejection often associated with sexuality and identity. By using hypnosis, we’re able to access deeply held feelings of contempt and self-rejection that have kept clients stuck with feelings of low self worth, low self-esteem, and issues of intimacy and acceptance. By identifying past triggers and changing the inner conversation, hypnosis creates a space in which clients can break through internalized homophobia and learn to accept who they are without the shame and guilt.
Our aim is always to help empower the individual to overcome feelings of isolation, anxiety, and identity issues. According to a Stonewall report on gay men and women, over 15% of queer persons are currently experiencing moderate to severe levels of mixed depression and anxiety. Factors that contribute to poor mental health include bullying, homophobia and general sexual health issues including excessive drinking and “partying” that stem from the intention to feel better.
In addition to the challenges of gay life in a predominantly straight world, gay persons are more concerned about body image, self confidence and self esteem, phobias, motivation and weight loss. Most gay persons experience growing up knowing they were “different.” Dealing with that and the process (often ongoing) of coming out and rejection by friends, colleagues, families and communities leads many to leave home area to express themselves more fully.
As an LGBT advocate and mental health expert, we acknowledge what is happening and take the first steps to combating anxiety, depression and isolation.
