I really do beleieve that hypnosis is such a powerful tool for treating anxiety.Having successfully treated many clients who suffer from anxiety/panic/stress.It still gives me great satisfaction watching a client leraning to control/reduce/elimante their anxiety.
how is hypnosis so good for this.As someone once said to me.It really
gets at the anxiety.Of course finding out the root cause of anxiety is
so important.Identifying negative self talk.Healing and reprocessing old
trauma memories.Most decient psychotherapy will help you achieve this.
the first I do with a client is help them relax.Before we do any
analysis.Talking deep breaths,progrssive relaxation techniques.Positive
healing visualizations.Because clients FEEL anxious. Don't.Don't under
estimate how useful relaxation is.
Hypnosis can really help you
achieve deep states of relaxation.For some who has been suffering from
crippling anxiety,its so powerful.I use a technique called
revivification. This.This is where you emotionally relieve a memory.First Talk the
client down into trance.Then the get the client to relive a
happy/relaxed memory,maybe a time when they felt so safe.But its the
feelings that are most important.Releasing feelings of calmness.
often say that their not sure if they can do this.Its always me me
smile a little.Because once you go down into trance.Its often quit easy
to release these endorphin memories.Because this ability is already
within us.We often do this in our waking life.When we meet friends,or watch a favorite Tv program from our childhood.It triggers a memory,a
Often I find people who are most anxious go the deepest.I
think they are just waiting for someone to show them how to let go of
Of course everyone responds at a different
rate..Hypnosis is not magic.Hypnotherapy helps you to help yourself.Its
not mind control.
I had a client last week who went so deep so
quickly.It still impresses me.He had been suffering from anxiety for
over 2 yrs.After 20 mins he said he hadn't relaxed like that in over
2yrs.It was the first break he had from his anxiety.Also said he was
slightly skeptical about hypnosis at first.He just tried it as a last
He had tried CBT .But it didn't do much for him.
Anxiety treatment that doesn't involve relaxation techniques fall short I believe.
of my clients have tried cognitive behavioral psychology.But they found
it a bit dry.Don't get me wrong I use some of the CBT techniques
myself.But on its own sometimes not enough for anxiety.
Hypnosis really helps to get at the anxiety.Helping the client to work directly on calming their nervous system.
As the client starts to feel less anxious and more relaxed.Then its easier to work on deepers subconscious programs.
I hope this blog helps someone to find relief from their anxiety.Or maybe point them in the right direction.
Majority of my clients don't go past four/five sessions.Hypnosis can treat anxiety so quickly.
course as I say everyone is different.Hypnosis is very powerful.But its
not magic.Its nothing like what you see on a stage show.
Anxiety is often called "misuse of the imagination "seeing things go wrong before they actually happen. Thoughts can create feeling. Change your imagination through visualisation, see the other side. If you have any questions , please email or just ring me. Always open to having a chat.
All the best and good luck on you journey.
