Most fears are learned and are a response to a perceived threat. Fears can affect you both physiologically and psychologically. Hypnosis works well when dealing with fears such as air travel, dental work, test taking, and heights,
Anxiety can transform an otherwise normal day into a stressful experience. This can limit your accomplishments and activities. Through hypnotherapy for anxiety you can learn to calm yourself with more positive self talk, and feel more control of your life.
Hypnotherapy for anxiety, fears and phobias is very useful; according to The British Psychological Society, hypnosis is a proven therapeutic medium to curb stress, anxiety, insomnia, and more. Most of my clients respond in as few as two to five sessions. Let me help you feel more ease and comfort allowing you to experience more joy from life, and work productively.
Many Americans struggle with irrational fears or phobias. The percentage of people with anxiety disorders has been on rise in recent years, and continues to grow according to the National Institute of Mental Health.
Phobias are the types of fears where a person harnesses irrational panic in something that poses little or no danger. These reactions are often referred to as fears, phobias, and anxiety, but I often use the term phobia with my clients to ease understanding.
Phobias often develop during childhood and become more severe during adulthood (although phobias can develop during adulthood as well). People often struggle phobias for decades without knowing that hypnosis can easily treat them. Phobias can be characterized by unreasonably exaggerated fear; my patients with phobias often feel as if they have no control over their feelings of panic even if they know that their phobias are irrational.
Phobias inconvenience victims: acute anxieties can limit individuals’ activities. I often find that my clients construct their lives around their phobias. When left untreated, phobias can incapacitate the victim in situations that cause fear.
We can characterize phobias according to these four general categories:
1. Natural environment—fear of heights, darkness, water, storms, etc.
2. Animal—fear of snakes, dogs, frogs, bugs, etc.
3. Blood injection injury—fear of injury, blood, injections, etc.
4. Situational—fear of flying, dentists, driving, public speaking, etc.
Regardless of the type of phobia, they are formed the same way subconsciously and manifest in similar ways. One can think of phobias as “mis-wiring” two unrelated things together resulting in the fallacious association between the object and the feeling.
In addition to feeling extreme anxiety when exposed to a situation which triggers fear, common symptoms include:
• Racing heart
• Difficulty speaking
You probably already know that you experience hypnosis often when you’re in a relaxed state of mind. That focused state of relaxation you experience when you watch a movie or go for a long drive are examples of hypnosis. It is during this time that you are most susceptible to suggestion. Hypnotherapy helps you overcome fear by reprogramming your reaction to situations that trigger fear. The techniques used by hypnotherapists vary from patient to patient, but hypnotherapists have the same goal: to detach the stimulus from the emotional response. Hypnotherapists will also teach their patients relaxation and visualization techniques to stay calm and relaxed.
