How Does Hypnotherapy Help to Treat Anxiety?

Anxiety is an issue that affects 1 in 10 people across Australia. Sufferers live with this problem every day. Most non-sufferers of anxiety do not realise how terrifying anxiety can be; to what extent it interferes with many aspects of life. If you suffer from anxiety, then you know what I mean when I say that anxiety is a debilitating condition that prevents you from living your life to the fullest. It is also difficult to find a treatment for anxiety that gets rid of anxiety as opposed to just managing anxiety. Many anxiety treatments revolve around changing your thoughts alone in an attempt to control anxiety. For high levels of anxiety, much more than changing thoughts is required.

Anxiety is a complex issue that requires an integrated approach to achieve permanent results.

Hypnotherapy is a therapy that uses the state of mind called hypnosis in conjunction with other modalities of therapy. Hypnosis provides access to the subconscious, which in turn may be used in a few different ways to alleviate anxiety.

The simplest way of using hypnosis to treat anxiety is by offering suggestions of calmness and feeling in control while you are in hypnosis. These suggestions are more readily accepted while in hypnosis and then are acted upon at a later time.

Hypnotherapy is one method that can help sufferers take control of their issues. But how does hypnosis work? 

  • Hypnosis can can also be used as an access tool to find the root cause of the problem. I then help you to untangle yourself emotionally from whatever those past experiences are.
  • Self-hypnosis techniques can be integrated with other modalities of therapy to take back control of your thoughts and feelings. 
  • It is this unique integration of hypnosis with established approaches that has enabled me to effectively help over 2,000 people who suffered from anxiety.
