If you were alone in the jungle you’d be happy to be constantly alert to the dangers all around you, wouldn’t you? Just in case? Similarly, athletes and public speakers (and others!) use stress to their advantage. Importantly, stress can give us strength, which makes us fearless, fast and powerful! But this type of anxiety isn’t always useful, in particular when it continues for any length of time.
Thankfully we aren’t exposed to those kinds of dangers or challenges on a daily basis. Again, it’s when we become overly stressed that our brains can get fixed on full anxious alert. As a result we can be left feeling exhausted and unable to cope with our daily lives. In the long run, we may find ourselves unable to sleep, or even having a full blown panic attack. Moreover, decision making becomes difficult or impossible. On top of that, some people may experience other unwanted physical symptoms including pain and obsessive behaviours as in OCD.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool which helps to relieve that stress and bring anxiety levels down. Consequently putting you back in control of your thoughts and emotions and therefore your life. Likewise, you can find your real self and focus on what is important. Just as important, you’ll be putting problems in perspective and rediscovering your creativity.
Hypnosis in a clinical setting brings about a very natural state of deep relaxation where you can focus your mind. Your subconscious is open to suggestion for your benefit. Therefore you quickly begin to feel calm and confident again. In addition to the benefits to your mental health, reducing anxiety also has enormous benefits for your physical health. For instance, hypnosis for anxiety can lower heart rate and reduce levels of inflammation. This has implications for pain relief as well as general and mental wellbeing.
