You Can Walk Away From Anxiety

Anxiety can have a severe negative impact on life, as sufferers are well aware. So many of the healthy things we need to do are obstructed: social contact, self improvement, physical activities, self care, and the list goes on.

Are you ready to experience life as a calmer, peaceful, fearless person? I say fearless rather than courageous, because, if you struggle with anxiety you already have a ton of courage, that’s what gets you out of bed everyday and out into the world. How would it feel to not need courage, to be fearless instead?

Anxiety goes by many names and can be as simple as normal exam jitters, or as severe as crippling fear and panic, and everything in between. Now, this primal reaction is hardwired into us and has been crucial to keeping our species alive; however, an over-reactive fear response is no good for anyone. It’s like your home fire alarm going off every time you turn on the stove, light a candle, or even think about turning on the stove or lighting a candle. Can you imagine? That’s no way to live. But you already know this.

If anxiety or any of it’s symptoms and manifestations; FOMO, panic, PTSD, depression, OCD, social fear, GAD, procrastination, fatigue, irritability, tension and body pain, headaches, IBS and other chronic digestive issues, excessive sweating, insomnia, phobia, chronic worry, bingeing, self harm, and so much more, are limiting your ability to fully enjoy your life, and get the most out of it, try hypnotherapy.

Anxiety has become a serious concern for many of us in the modern world, and even very young children are suffering. Who can say why? Past trauma, prevalent social media, pressure to perform and succeed, genetic factors, unattainable goals? All of the above?

We know that these emotional reactions do not come from the logical conscious mind, they come unbidden from the illogical subconscious. We also now understand that our conscious mind constitutes only about 5 to 10% of our total mind power, and that the subconscious makes up much of the rest, a whopping 90 to 95%! Understanding what is going on consciously isn’t enough to make meaningful changes to reaction to triggers, for significant change to take place, the message has to make it through to your subconscious mind, where the reaction originates.

In the safety and comfort of hypnosis we gain access to the subconscious and will gently address the initial cause of the condition, the trigger, update the subconscious so that the new understanding goes deeply in to make changes on a profound level. Then, using language that your subconscious understands, we strategically shift old ways of thinking, old patterns, and replace them with your personal vision of how you want your life to be. And it works!

The tremendous volume of research provides compelling evidence that hypnosis is an efficacious treatment for state anxiety (e.g., prior to tests, surgery and medical procedures) and anxiety-related disorders, such as headaches and irritable bowel syndrome.” https://doi.org/10.1586/ern.09.140

Cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy has demonstrated 70% enhanced treatment outcomes and long term remission compared to CBT alone, in meta-analysis of 18 relative studies.
Additionally, hypnosis sessions can also deal with associated phobias, substance abuse, eating disorders, low self esteem, social behavior patterns, motivation development, etc, commonly encountered in such patients, at the subconscious level.
Methods like reframing, ego reinforcement, releasing tension, taking responsibility, age progression, physical dissociation, metaphor, anchors, confusion techniques for facilitating specific amnesia, have profound long term impact.
Furthermore, overall necessary treatment with sessions of clinical hypnotherapy is much shorter than sessions of CBT.”

The author compared a hypnotic procedure consisting of positive suggestions and mental imagery to another group that listened to quiet music (movements from Mozart symphonies) and to a control group. Both experimental groups met in their respective groups for 30 minutes for three weeks. At the end of treatment, both experimental groups experienced a significant reduction in their anxiety, whereas the control group saw minor changes in their anxiety levels. Moreover, the reduction for the hypnosis group was larger. Finally, the therapeutic gains were maintained for the hypnosis group only at six month follow-ups.” https://www.intechopen.com/books/new-insights-into-anxiety-disorders/using-hypnosis-in-the-treatment-of-anxiety-disorders-pros-and-cons
