Hypnosis for anxiety
The British Psychological Society has now officially declared Hypnosis a proven therapeutic medium to curb stress, anxiety, pain, 

insomnia, irritable bowel syndrome and migraines. "Improvements in hypnosis can be as specific as eliminating erectile dysfunction or 

premature ejaculation, remaining committed to a workout plan, delivering a dynamic sales presentation or as broad as improving 

motivation and increasing confidence?, said psychologist and certified hypnotherapist Marty Lerman, PhD, author of Mindshift






Anxiety can be experienced at different degrees and although most people experience a relatively mild form of anxiety when facing 


particularly stressful situations (such as a speech or a presentation), anxiety disorders are severe and can disrupt the everyday life of an 


individual. Anxiety can be brought on by fear of something that happened or what we think happened and dread happening again.

          


          Stress and anxiety are everywhere in our society and, if not dealt with, can cause real health problems i.e. back complaints, 


          stomach problems, migraines, depression etc. There are even links suggested between living a stressful lifestyle and diabetes. 


          Relaxation exercises and other stress management techniques will help you not only to combat stress and cope with it but 


          ultimately, and far more importantly, to prevent it in the first place.



Hypnotherapy is an effective treatment for anxiety disorders. It aims to seek out the root cause of the anxiety and change an individual?s 


perception of a past event or release emotions from it.


    Hypnosis can incorporate lots of different therapeutic models to help you deal with the present stress and anxiety but also to help 


you avoid developing high underlying stress levels.


    It can help develop subconscious learning and, by teaching you relaxation techniques and exercises, it can enable you to develop 


natural responses i.e. a relaxation reflex as opposed to a stress reflex.


   It can also help with positive thinking and assertiveness. By understanding stress and your body?s reaction to it, you can start to 


create new positive reactions which become a self- fulfilling prophecy.



Basically, the better you feel about your ability to cope with stressful situations, the better you will, in fact, cope with them. Hypnotherapy 


is not only effective for stress symptoms such as insomnia, muscle tension, rushing, worrying etc. but is also a great approach to dealing 


with stress and anxiety before it even happens.
