woman sitting at a computer, looking worriedIs constant anxiety ruining your life? Feel like the world is coming to an end, nothing is going right, and no matter what you do you just can’t escape it?

You might be the 1 of 5 Australians that experience anxiety on a regular basis, making it one of the most common mental disorders in the world. There might not feel like there’s a way to overcome it…But there is.

Hypnotherapy has shown fantastic results in dealing with a variety of mental disorders and its use in the treatment of anxiety has gotten more recognition in recent years.

Why You Should Give Hypnosis a Try

  • Safe and amplifies effectiveness of other treatments: If performed by a trained and licensed hypnotherapist, hypnosis offers no side-effects or potential dangers to patients. At the same time, it can be used in combination with more mainstream psychotherapy treatments and it often improves their effectiveness.
  • Discover the root cause of your anxiety:  Most of the anxiety and phobias we have are rooted in some past trauma or stressful event. Our brain develops a defense mechanism due to those traumas in order to protect us from potential harm. Hypnotherapy can uncover these root causes of anxiety and link them to the traumatic events in our past that started it all. At a subconscious level, hypnosis can offer guidance on how to retrain your mind to overcome your anxiety, rather than just dealing with the surface symptoms like a bandaid.
  • Results in just one session:  Although it is highly unlikely that a single hypnotherapy session can completely cure anxiety in a patient and retrain their thought processes, the patient should still feel significant relief after just one session. As the patient progresses with further sessions, hypnotherapy can reinforce new thought processes and help further alleviate anxiety and panic attacks in the future. At the same time, with each additional session, the patient gains further emotional control and understanding of the process.

Anxiety can seriously affect our quality of life and is often tied to a higher-than-average rate of depression in people who suffer from it.
