During my time working as a therapist I have witnessed many incredible hypnotherapy for anxiety success stories.
“The therapy I had with Abbey was so helpful…such a kind manner and made me feel relaxed and able to talk about anything, very empathetic and made me feel comfortable. Takes a lot to make me relax and with Abbey I felt relaxed at each session. Highly recommended. Thank you!” – GM
I am often asked if hypnotherapy for anxiety works. The short answer is YES, hypnotherapy can be extremely effective in reducing and even completely eliminating anxiety symptoms. The first step towards freeing yourself from anxiety is understanding that it is a by-product of chronic stress; although you might not conscious know what it causing it, there is usually a root cause.
When life stresses turn into anxiety
Many different things activate a stress response in your body, sometimes they’re actually good things like being given more responsibility at work or caring for a new baby. When you have demands placed upon you, your body responds by releasing a cocktail of chemicals into your bloodstream. These chemicals prime you for ‘fight or flight’ which is a helpful response if the cause if some kind of physical danger. But this chemical response can be unhelpful if the external demand is emotional and there is no need for the extra energy, leaving these stress chemicals still inside your body.
Because your body remains in their heightened state of awareness you can feel jumpy or jittery, find it hard to concentrate or sleep and become snappy or irritable. When this state continues for a prolonged period of time it can tip over into anxiety.
“I recently had several hypnotherapy session with Abbey as I was struggling with PTSD symptoms. Within a month I was no longer experiencing night terrors or anxiety during the day. I would highly recommend Abbey to anyone seeking assistance. She is wonderful, very sweet, caring, and incredibly professional.” – MT
When a person suffers from an anxiety disorder they may start avoiding situations, people or events as they fear they may trigger these anxiety symptoms. Obviously this negatively impacts their lives, potentially causing them to miss out career opportunities, personal relationships and social opportunities.
How hypnotherapy can help
Hypnotherapy works to reduce anxiety in a number of ways, reducing feelings of fear and worry while increasing positive thoughts and feelings. You will learn techniques to help you feel more confident and self-assured.
