ANXIETY DOESN'T HAVE TO CONTROL YOU
You know what your anxiety feels like... that uncomfortable sick feeling that means something is wrong. For some people it feels like "butterflies in the stomach" or for others, a tension in the chest. The drain of anxiety is exhausting and it can feel like there's no way out.
But it gets worse. This anxiety prevents you from going out and doing the things you used to enjoy. It keeps you from connecting with your loved ones, and it takes more and more effort just to keep your head above water and maintain everyday life.
If you experience anxiety on a regular basis, you are not alone. In fact, anxiety is one of the most common psychological conditions in the world. It's a condition that plagues modern society.
But anxiety doesn't have to plague you.
Hypnosis is an effective treatment towards reducing or even eliminating anxiety.
"The tremendous volume of research provides compelling evidence that hypnosis is an efficacious treatment for state anxiety and anxiety-related disorders"
- D Corydon Hammond (2010) Hypnosis in the treatment of anxiety- and stress-related disorders, Expert Review of Neurotherapeutics, 10:2, 263-273, DOI: 10.1586/ern.09.140
Anxiety Is More Than "Just Stress"
It's obvious to you, but unless your friends or family have experienced anxiety themselves, they likely don't understand what you're going through. You might have even received advice (or sometimes pleas) to "just relax" and "don't stress out." But as you know, anxiety is more than "just stress."
Anxiety can be one of the most difficult feelings to explain, because it's multidimensional. Anxiety happens through recalling past experiences of being out of control, paired with worries about being unable to handle anxiety in the future, brought about by a present feeling of physical anxiety. It loops in on itself like an ill-fated time traveller.
Stress, on the other hand, is one dimensional, which makes it easier to explain. But while stress and anxiety have a shared relationship, there is a simple, yet significant difference between stress and anxiety.
Stress is your body's natural response to any change, positive or negative, that deviates from your expectations.
Stress has a purpose as well as an external source. It motivates you to address the external challenge at hand.
Once the issue has been resolved, the stress goes away.
But anxiety is different...
Anxiety Is A Solution That Grew Into A Problem
Anxiety is a signal from the body to be mildly apprehensive. Its purpose is to motivate you to be prepared for when something goes wrong.
In the past, this danger signal might help to ensure we secure shelter for the night, or keep an eye on our children as they played nearby in the river. Then, once the potential disaster had passed, the anxious feeling would recede and everything would be in order.
But when anxiety doesn't have an external source, there's "no thing to resolve." The anxious response gets becomes disordered. The danger signal loops in upon itself, becoming the source for more anxiety and the cycle continues. You feel like you have to take preventative action to protect yourself even though you consciously know everything is ok.
At some point, your subconscious mind had learned that this danger signal was a solution, and it continues to create anxiety to keep you safe. It's done an effective job at keeping you alive, but at the cost of losing out on opportunities that people normally enjoy that makes life rich.
Hypnosis Allows You To Live With Less Anxiety
Hypnosis can help you to escape the anxiety cycle by teaching your subconscious mind effective coping skills to better manage each of the multiple aspects of anxiety. With some training, you'll find that you begin to automatically alleviate the physical, mental, and emotional symptoms of anxiety as they come up.
You'll develop proactive skills to help you be better prepared to handle stressful situations before anxiety rises as well as reactive solutions to reduce the effects of anxiety when they do arise so you can take back control of your life.
Worried You Can't Relax?
That's part of the problem, isn't it?
Sometimes people with anxiety worry that they won't be able to relax enough to go into hypnosis. Luckily, relaxation isn't required in order to experience hypnosis. Rather, hypnosis creates relaxation.
Take a moment to consider this:
Tension is an unconscious behavior, while relaxation is often a conscious behavior.
With that in mind, when was the last time you stopped to consciously and effectively relax?
Too often, my client's answers are measured in months or years. It’s no surprise, given the complexities and constant demands of today’s society.
Hypnosis will have you feeling more relaxed and in control in just a few sessions.
