Hypnotherapy for Anxiety

How Hypnotherapy Works

A hypnotherapy session usually lasts about an hour. A trained therapist uses various relaxation techniques to guide the patient into a hypnotic state. In this state, the patient is still conscious and aware. But the body becomes more relaxed and the mind more responsive to suggestions from the therapist. The therapistís suggestions will depend on the condition or behavior being treated. Hypnotherapy can be used to help target unwanted or unhealthy habits and possibly replace them with healthier behavior. This can include being able to better control pain or anxiety or adjusting negative thought patterns that are causing depression. By using hypnosis, everything from phobias and addictions to stress disorders have been cured.

The problems dealt with most consistently include:

  • Stress and anxiety
  • Phobias
  • Insomnia
  • Weight loss
  • Stop smoking
  • Pain management

It is believed that in a session, hypnosis is not something that is 'done' to you, but rather a state of mind that your therapist helps you to achieve. Did you know that you can stop anxiety attacks with self-hypnosis? This does not refer to swinging a pocket watch in front of your eyes and repeating "I am getting sleepier and sleepier..." During a panic attack, your rational mind is under siege and difficult to access. But because hypnotherapy works on your subconscious mind, you can use it to calm yourself with a simple physical trigger.In many instances, she teaches her clients how they may take themselves in and out of hypnosis, enabling them to continue work begun in the session at home. Hypnotherapy is generally considered a safe method of treatment.
