What is anxiety?
Anxiety is an uncomfortable feeling in the body that is usually accompanied by negative thoughts in the mind. Anxiety might feel quite overwhelming with a rapid breath and heart beat and thoughts being out of control.
What is the consequence of anxiety
Anxiety can limit people’s lives leading to avoidance of the people, things or places that “trigger” the anxiety itself. Anxiety can have an impact on career and personal relationships and lead to fears and phobias.
It is common for people suffering from anxiety to be stuck in a pattern of trying to push anxiety away. Quite literally, there is anxiety about anxiety leading to what is known as “cyclical anxiety”.
The sufferer may feel anxious about other people seeing their anxiety, and a negative circle is formed. Anxious people often go to great lengths to try and hide the fact that they are feeling anxious; which only serves as an additional fuel for the pattern of anxiety itself.
It is important to bring acceptance to the presence of anxiety itself as well as both learning strategies to process anxiety when it arises, and to explore and resolve it’s causes in therapy.
Where does anxiety come from?
Anxiety is usually created by:
- Unresolved emotions from the past.
- Inner conflict in the present
- Negative projections into the future.
Each of these causes of anxiety can be resolved with hypnosis.
Therapy treatment for anxiety
Treatment begins with emotional education. The client is taught about what anxiety is so and how they may learn to feel comfortable with emotions.
Hypnosis might be used to teach the client how to enter a state of safety and relaxation. From there, it’s causes can be explored from a safe and relaxed state of mind – perhaps leading to regression work or parts therapy.
Emotions as explored as being being signals from aspects of the psyche and the client is guided in the development of “inner relationship” – to understand oneself and the motivation behind every feeling.
Breath work and anxiety
Clients are taught how to “go into” anxious feelings and change them through conscious use of the breath. Proper breathing facilitates emotional change with a corresponding shift in patterns of thinking and behaving. Breathe work is often combined with EFT and EMDR therapy as a precursor to hypnosis work to process old feelings and change anxiety at it’s root.
Relaxation and anxiety
Relaxation is the opposite of anxiety. Therefore learning strategies to induce conscious relaxation at will is beneficial for the treatment of anxiety. In a therapy context, this may include training in self hypnosis techniques.
How many sessions does it take to resolve anxiety?
The number of sessions required depends upon the individual circumstances. On average, many forms of anxiety can be resolved in 3-5 session of hypnosis work.
