Start using Hypnosis right away to calm your mind
Hypnosis has long been used to alleviate stress and anxiety and now we have the proof that it works. Research undertaken by Dr Spiegal, Psychiatrist of Stanford University, stated that there is now scientific evidence that, under hypnosis, something happens in the brain that does not happen ordinarily.
When you experience hypnosis, you are not in a trance. You experience deep relaxation. You experience this state of relaxation in both your body and mind.
This state is achieved by guidance given by the therapist to allow you to quiet your mind and achieve relaxation at levels not ordinarily experienced.
Hypnotherapy for stress and anxiety
Using hypnosis for stress and anxiety is effective, as it creates a state of deep relaxation. In all anxiety conditions, there is one common factor – getting a stress response in situations where it is not necessary. It is the stress response that is responsible for the physical symptoms experienced in the body.
How does it work?
In my own programs you are guided by myself into a state of deep relaxation. You do not have to do anything, just listen.
All of us have the ability to experience deep relaxation, but for most of us, our head gets in the way. We try to relax by watching TV, sport, walking, but usually our head is engaged. Thinking, analyzing, chatting. In the guided hypnosis, I help you to disengage with your thought processes, and guide you into relaxation. You are not in a trance, you are still in control.
During this deep relaxation, when your mind is quiet, your mind is more open to change. I will help you to change your emotional responses and encourage your mind and body to produce a relaxation response.
Hypnosis programs are included in the online anxiety management program.
