What is Hypnosis for Anxiety?

Anxiety is your body’s natural response to stress.  It's a normal and often healthy emotion.  However, when you feel anxiety recurring every day, you may need help to reduce it and hypnosis is an excellent vehicle to reduce those feelings and get relief.

Know that you're not alone as anxiety affects 40 million Americans each year.  It’s the most common mental illness in the U.S.

Definition of Anxiety

Definitions of anxiety are all over the place but some anxiety disorders include fears, phobias, PTSD, panic attacks, OCD, social anxiety, constant worry and separation anxiety.  Some anxiety symptoms include panic, fear, IBS, migraines and insomnia.  Whenever you don’t feel right in a given situation, you may have anxiety.

Hypnosis for Anxiety

Hypnosis for anxiety can be very helpful by relaxing your mind helping you to let go of fear, worry and stress.  Many times, anxiety can be traced to a traumatic event at some point in your life.  In other instances, anxiety can build over many years as the feeling of being in control fades away.  Using hypnosis, we use the healing power of your mind to make changes in the way your subconscious mind processes events that cause anxiety. 

When caused by a traumatic occurrence, the event creates an emotion that is triggered by certain actions in your current life.  Hypnosis can explore repressed memories and traumatic experiences and then deal with the negative emotions created by the event that continues to surface in the present.

Once those emotions get released, hypnosis will relax and calm the mind and install a desire for healthy thoughts and habits.  You will feel like a new person and ready to accomplish the goals you have set in your life.

I was having problems with my medical boards

I was having problems with my medical boards. I had failed a few times due to stress and psyching myself out. I knew the answers at home and I did well on practice tests, but every time the real exam came around I second guessed myself, changed answers, and didn’t know what to do. I went to Tom as a last resort of sorts. Over two sessions, I found the tools to relax and calm myself and how to put myself into a state of peace and clarity. Tom was not only helpful, but he was kind and accommodating. He walked me through the process before we began and continuously checked up on my progress while I continued to work toward passing my exam. In the end, I did pass! I was cool, calm, and collected and worked through it with a clear mind. I recommend hyponosis to anyone struggling with anxiety, stress, or anything they wish to control better in their lives.
