Hypnotherapy for Anxiety
If attaining a calm mental state were straight forward, anxiety issues would be far less common. Yet, according to Anxiety UK, an estimated 13% of adults in Great Britain will develop a specific form of anxiety during their lifetime.
Anxiety is as a physiological response and differs from fear in a few key ways. Fear is the response to an immediate threat, which whether real or perceived has a rational cause. Anxiety is caused by the expectation of a future threat. It can inhibit self-realisation by stopping one from moving forward, making major decisions and taking actions, consequently resulting in procrastination, social withdrawal, relationship issues and self-sabotage. It prevents self-fulfilment and living the life one desires. Anxiety disorders are diagnosed when someone experiences these negative expectations on a regular basis.
Hypnotherapy for Anxiety release
The relaxed state at the core of hypnotherapy treatment makes it an ideal method to handle anxiety and the issues caused by it. Hypnotherapy is carried out by accessing the underlying reasons for negative behaviours and feelings by working directly with your subconscious mind.
While under hypnosis, clients are in a state of deep relaxation. In a hypnotherapy session, you’ll explore feelings of anxiety to understand your own reactions to stressors. This will help to resolve anxiety at the foundation of the problem and teach vital skills in mastering your ability to stay calm in stressful situations.

Excercise: Anxiety release & mind control using self-hypnois, imagination
- Find a relaxed, comfortable position and take ten deep, fast breaths. Fill yourself with oxygen. Feel it flooding through your stomach, chest and all the way up to your brain. This may make you feel light headed but you will notice a sense of realignment and relaxation.
- Think about the idea of calmness – hold the concept of it in your mind and reflect on it.
- Imagine yourself in circumstances common to your daily life that trigger feeling of anxiety. Visualise the positive aspects of the situation, practice maintaining a sense of calmness and control, while keeping that stressor in your mind. Picture yourself facing the stressors calmly. Visualise the positive results. Practice this a few times per day.
Remember that whatever you imagine, you will eventually experience. Your brain doesn’t know the difference between what is real and imagined. Expect and have faith in that you can and will resolve any challenges that come your way. Spend time practicing this simple exercise. This will encourage your brain to change its pattern of protection when faced with difficult situations.
