My favorite issue to help people with using hypnosis is ANXIETY. Why? because people with anxiety tend to respond so favorably to hypnosis! People suffering from anxiety tend to take subtle or minor cues from their environment - suggestions, if you will - and run with them. Minor cues trigger bigger fears, and they’re off to the races. The panic races, that is.
People who do well with hypnosis tend to take suggestions well, and there’s the connection. The ability to take suggestions makes for a great hypnotic experience and positive outcomes.
Consider something entirely different for your anxiety: consider hypnosis. You may have tried any number of other approaches to reduce your anxiety, but hypnosis is a terrific tool because it gets to the root cause of the anxiety. Assuming there isn’t a health issue or over-indulging in coffee or other stimulants, hypnosis can help reduce the source of the fear. This is far more effective than most other approaches that typically focus on building skills to cope anxiety that has already kicked in. Often, it’s too late at that point for the breaking exercises or distractions to be of any use.
Most clients experience significant relief from their anxiety in 3 to 7 sessions. Hypnosis works very well for generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), panic attacks, specific fears (such as fear of flying or fear of public speaking), and mild obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD).
