|Hypnotherapy + Managing Stress & Anxiety |
Did you know that anxiety is the most common mental health disorder among US adults and if left untreated, the ways in which your body and mind respond can be exacerbated by the lack of healthy coping skills? These responses could be physical, such as muscle tension and jaw clenching, or mental, like negative self-talk. Hypnotherapy can help.
In hypnotherapy, we’re undoing these bad habits and replacing them with healthier, more effective scripts. The goal is to tackle things at a subconscious level, meaning the automatic processes that happen in our minds and bodies when we find ourselves stressed or anxious — sometimes we aren’t even aware of these because they’re so ingrained in us! Once you have the tools, you can apply them to any stressful or anxiety-inducting situation that arises.
What happens in a hypnotherapy session? In your first meeting, the hypnotherapist will ask how you’re currently managing your stress and anxiety. What have you tried? What has or hasn’t worked? What are your triggers? Then you’ll get to experience a hypnotherapy session, during which your body is relaxed and the mind is alert to receive post hypnotic suggestions on how to better respond to your triggers.
Because you’re more relaxed, alert, and open to suggestions during hypnosis, you’re more likely to automatically use those new (and better) techniques in your day to day life. You’ll also see what it’s like to calm the body and mind. It reinforces the concept that you are in control, no one else; this power relies within you.
So, how fast can you expect results? It depends on a variety of factors like how chronic the stress is and whatever the root issue of your stress and anxiety may be. Likewise, it also depends how great of a student you are. Those who are present in each session and put in the work in between sessions will see faster and better results.
However, stress and anxiety is evergreen. Maybe your previous coping mechanisms are no longer effective or actually getting in the way, or you need to work with a hypnotherapist to combat an issue that wasn’t prevalent prior. Don’t hesitate to schedule a tune-up with your hypnotherapist. Whoever complained of feeling calm and relaxed anyway? Learn more.
Did you know hypnotherapy can also help manage habit control (like smoking or nail biting), insomnia, and weight control? Book a 10 minute complimentary consultation with our in-house hypnotherapist.
