    Can Hypnosis Help Alleviate My Anxiety and Stress?

    Can Hypnosis Help Alleviate My Anxiety and Stress?

    Do you often find yourself worrying unnecessarily? Regardless of what the issue is, is your mind racing constantly, crowding other, more important mental activities? Are you even too anxious to sleep — but you’re not even sure why?

    One of the most common questions we get asked is, “Can hypnosis help alleviate my anxiety and stress?”

    Our answer is, “YES! Outside of quitting smoking, stress and anxiety are one the most common reasons people seek our help.”

    Our clients typically report a reduction in the symptoms of anxiety (e.g. nervousness, tension, excessive worry, etc.) resulting in improved concentration, better performance, and even better sleep after only four or five sessions through a powerful, interactive and fun process of hypnosis whereby the therapist guides the client to the appropriate level (depth) of hypnosis for the presenting problem through a series of suggestions.* Once at the appropriate level of hypnosis, your subconscious mind is optimally open and receptive to the combination of positive suggestions co-created by you and the therapist during the intake portion of the session. Because hypnotherapy occurs on the level of the subconscious mind, change is often more dramatic, noticeable and permanent then when the conscious mind is engaged.

    Some clients can even experience significant relief after only one session.*

    Hypnotherapy is gaining more recognition nationwide as an established option for relieving the symptoms of anxiety. Specifically, research has shown hypnotherapy can be very effective for improving confidence, self-image, and levels of serenity. In a 2011 study, individuals who used repeated self-hypnosis reported the highest levels of self-esteem and serenity, and the least anger/impulsivity, in comparison to the minimal-practice and control groups.1
