Hypnotherapy for Anxiety – Richmond
Everyone has experienced feeling anxious at some point in their lives. Whether it’s nerves before a test, a first date or perhaps when having to give a speech. For most people this feeling is an appropriate response to a pending situation, but one that is at a tolerable level. However, sometimes this feeling gets to a level where it is inappropriate for that person. Perhaps the level of anxiety or even the duration of it becomes unreasonable. It’s at this point that a person’s anxiety can start to have a negative effect on their life.
When is it getting out of hand?
What if you’re anxious to leave your apartment? What if you’re too anxious to get out of bed? At this point the anxiety has become so overwhelming that it dominates your life.
What does hypnotherapy have to do with anxiety?
Hypnotherapy for anxiety can help the sufferer very quickly. With the sub-conscious part of the mind learning behaviours from experience and repetition, it tries to protect us using what’s known as the “flight or flight” response. This response can manifest itself in many ways, one of which is anxiety. Have you ever anxious about:
- Speaking in public
- Going to parties
- Using public toilets
- Sporting events
- Giving presentations
- Having to please everyone
- Meeting new people
If so, this is your sub-conscious believing you are in a threatening situation and therefore raises your senses in case you have to fight or flight, (fight or run away, a primitive brain reaction).
How can hypnotherapy help me?
Hypnotherapy communicates with this part of the mind to reason with it so that it understands that the basis for anxiety being felt by the person is inappropriate and therefore not needed. By using hypnotherapy for anxiety I can talk to you sub-conscious mind and bring its thinking into line with your conscious mind. As a result these inappropriate reactions from your sub-conscious stop, giving you back your life. Too many people live with anxieties, which they could be quickly free of with the help of hypnotherapy.
