Have you ever seen anyone having mild anxiety or panic attacks during stressful situations? Do you also struggle with the same? Are you looking for ways to tackle anxiety?
For many individuals, anxiety can be a constant struggle. Anxiety is a widely misunderstood and troublesome mental health condition that affects millions of people every day. It can trigger panic attacks, crippling fear for no apparent reason, and even lead to depression.
One of its symptoms is insomnia, which has resulted in plenty of sufferers turning to hypnosis to help them sleep more soundly at night. A recent study showed that hypnosis could be an effective anxiety disorder treatment by assisting patients in identifying the roots of their problems and changing those beliefs through hypnosis.
Hypnosis is a delicate practice that lays the foundation for long-lasting change and an increased sense of well-being. Hypnosis is a state of awareness involving focused concentration, reduced peripheral awareness, and an enhanced capacity to respond to suggestions.
The mere idea of hypnosis might make some people feel anxious before treatment, but Hypnotherapy sessions are safe, effective, and recommended by professionals worldwide. That, combined with its ease of use and relative affordability, makes it an excellent choice for those who suffer from anxiety or any other problems related to it.
WHAT IS HYPNOTHERAPY?
Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis to achieve a specific outcome such as releasing anxiety, overcoming a phobia, quitting smoking or alcohol – basically breaking any unwanted habit and addiction.
Hypnosis allows the therapist to communicate directly with the subconscious mind and embed new suggestions.
The therapist will guide you into a trancelike state where your subconscious mind will be focused and responsive to suggestions so that change can take place.
HOW IS HYPNOSIS USED TO TREAT ANXIETY?
The way hypnosis works to treat anxiety is through a process of releasing and healing.
By addressing those negative feelings and beliefs in your subconscious mind you will be able to let them go so that you are no longer connected to them. This will allow healing to take place and you will feel freer and lighter as you will no longer have that trash in your subconscious mind.
You will feel transformed and due to the strong mind-body connection, you will physically heal as well.
DOES HYPNOSIS WORK?
Even though hypnotherapy isn’t as well-known for treating anxiety as psychotherapy and medicine are, academics and scientists have been examining its effects on mental health conditions like anxiety for several years.
Researchers scanned people’s brains while they were undergoing guided hypnosis sessions in a 2016 study. They discovered that when a person is hypnotised, their brain undergoes modifications that allow them to have:
- less self-consciousness
- more concentrated attention
- stronger physical and emotional control
Hypnosis can improve the effectiveness of other therapies for anxiety disorders.
Hypnosis can be a great tool to help those suffering from an anxiety disorder. In the trance state, it’s possible for deep changes in thought patterns and behaviour to occur. It is often used as an effective way to reduce or eliminate anxiety. Nowadays, many therapists are turning to hypnosis to help their clients learn how best to deal with their anxiety on a deeper level. According to research it appears to be useful in assisting patients with ‘trait’ anxiety (a tendency towards anxiety as part of your personality).
