Davina McCall has Hypnosis
TV Host Davina McCall, still remembered for her Big Brother hosting duties, has been talking about how she underwent hypnosis to deal with her own personal traumas. It all started when she was due to be submerged in a submarine and worried about how she would feel underwater.
In an interview with The Sun's Fabulous magazine, Davina talked about how she felt after the loss of her mother and how seeking hypnotherapy helped her to come to terms with this loss.
She talks about a method of hypnosis called timeline therapy which can be used to help you see things that happened in your past differently and teaches you to let go of the hold that they can have on your present and future.
“I went back in time to my younger self, when I realised my mum wasn’t coming back. I was sitting at the kitchen table when I was about four years old, and the hypnotist said: ‘Take her outside to your safe place in the garden.’ So I took myself to my tree and sat down. He then said for me to put my arm around and comfort her. I did it like I was comforting one of my own children.”
“I started crying and said: ‘I can’t.’
The hypnotist asked me why not and I replied: ‘Because it’s not going to be OK. Life gets really tough.’
And he went: ‘But look at you now.’ And it was the biggest epiphany.
This affection from Davina to her younger self became the turning point as she gave her younger self a cuddle and stroked her hair. "She (her younger self) looked a bit bewildered. He (hypnotist) said: ‘Now tell her it’s all going to be OK.’ I started crying and said: ‘I can’t.’ The hypnotist asked me why not and I replied: ‘Because it’s not going to be OK. Life gets really tough.’ And he went: ‘But look at you now.’ And it was the biggest epiphany."
Davina Has Counselling and Hypnotherapy to help
She has undergone counselling and hypnotherapy many times to help her cope with all of life’s ups and downs. This has included the loss of her sister and mother and also a well publicised battle with drugs and alcohol.
"I've been hypnotised to get me through going to the bottom of the sea in a submarine.
She also talks about how reading self help books and talking to her friends has helped her cope with the obstacles she has had in her life.
It is always good to see celebrities talking about the fact that we do not need to go through our worries and troubles alone. It is always good to ask for help and face them stronger and with support.
