It's the biggest mental health challenge of our times - Anxiety and Anxiety-related conditions are the most common psychological afflictions affecting us today. They account for a major percentage of visits to doctors and psychiatrists.
It’s important to remember, that these conditions are NOT the result of personal weakness or even character flaws. They can be caused by a combination of factors, including environmental stresses, chemical changes in the brain, and often autonomic nervous system imbalances within the body.
So what exactly is anxiety and how can hypnotherapy help…
Anxiety is the misuse of the imagination, because anxiety is a normal part of life, it can be difficult to recognise when it is becoming a problem. For instance, it’s perfectly fine to be anxious about an exam or presentation at work.
But what if you are experiencing strong feelings of anxiety, or they are lasting for a long time, it can become exhausting and overwhelming. The symptoms and problems associated with anxiety will differ between each individual. But depending on the kind of problems you experience, you may be diagnosed with a more specific anxiety disorder.
Here’s a table with a quick overview of the different types of anxiety disorders:
Can Hypnotherapy Help with Anxiety
Absolutely, in fact hypnosis has such a clear role as a potent anti-anxiety agent! You must remember that your brain is the MOST POWERFUL organ in your body. Numerous studies have shown how hypnosis can dramatically improve people’s ability to counter anxiety.
When the subconscious mind is reprogrammed with the power of positive self-belief, dramatic changes take effect in your body to deal with, and eliminate unnecessary anxiety.
With the power of positive suggestions, hypnosis can address and resole many of the underlying triggers which cause chronic anxiety:
Physical pain and tension (often having roots in emotional tension) can be addressed by hypnosis. Addressing and working to alter the beliefs that you have about the triggers for your anxiety. Can help reduce the frequency and/or intensity of the physically straining symptoms of anxiety such as a rapid heart rate, rapid breathing and shaking. In addition, it can ease feelings of discomfort and strain by implanting the suggestion that you feel more physically comfortable than you actually do!
Along with causing physical strain, constant or frequent anxiety can also put you in a strained emotional state. The bodily energy required by the physical symptoms of anxiety, in combination with the persistent feelings of discontentment and worry, can make you feel drained and/or on edge. The very aim of hypnosis, is to put people in a more positive frame of mind. Altering unnecessary negative beliefs and implanting more helpful ones. In addressing this symptom, you are left with the belief that you feel happy, content, and confident in your ability to address and resolve the causes of your anxiety.
Many people with anxiety also have difficulty sleeping well. Getting to sleep in an anxious state and sleeping deeply when nightmares and muscle tension are keeping you awake can be nearly impossible. Hypnosis can assist with sleep deprivation by implanting the suggestion that you have gotten plenty of restful sleep recently. In addition, hypnosis can help you to alter your anxious thought patterns so that they do not spiral out of control and keep you awake (as well as causing the panic attacks that can result in muscle tension).
Hypnotherapy for conquering a phobia (for example, a fear of social situations or crowded rooms) can be far preferable to regularly taking medication in order to remain calm during everyday activities. Hypnosis can replace your unhealthy or illogical beliefs about the object of your phobia with more logically sound and useful beliefs.
