Can Hypnotherapy Really Help To Conquer Anxiety?

  1. 1. Most anxiety begins with either an incident while young or due to fears shared by the people who raised you. Symptoms of anxiety vary widely in severity. Some people experience anxiety occasionally and are able to deal with it without major life disruptions while others are debilitated by long lasting and severe reactions.

  2. 2. Many experts recommend a combined cognitive behavioral therapy approach with techniques from hypnotherapy. Understanding the motivations behind anxiety helps to understand which method is the best choice for an individual.

  3. 3. Here is how hypnotherapy is used to conquer anxiety: 1. The hypnotherapist must first evaluate the type of anxiety a client suffers from. Not all anxiety can be treated using hypnotherapy. More info on: http://www.integratedhealthspecialists.com.au/stress-anxiety-phobias-panic-attacks/
  4. 4. If anxiety is caused by an underlying physical condition, such as hypertension or a thyroid problem, then the best course of action is to see a trained medical practitioner. Additionally, anxiety is part of many psychiatric illnesses and treatment should be reserved for specialists in the mental health field.

  5. 5. 2. Once medical and psychiatric diagnosis have been ruled out, the next step is to determine the type of anxiety present. These falls into three major categories: free floating or generalized anxiety, short intense periods of panic between periods of relative calm, and a mixture of the two.

  6. 6. 3. Further work must be done to determine if the anxiety is part of a situational phobia, a post-traumatic stress reaction to a previous event, a disturbance when tension is induced by the need to perform certain actions in individuals with an obsessive compulsive disorder. More info on: http://www.integratedhealthspecialists.com.au/stress-anxiety-phobias-panic-attacks/
  7. 7. Once diagnosis has been completed, a plan of action should be put into place. The most successful use of hypnotherapy to conquer anxiety is when the anxiety is generalized. A hypnotherapist actively works to create a relaxed state within the patient. More info on: http://www.integratedhealthspecialists.com.au/stress-anxiety-phobias-panic-attacks/
  8. 8. This can be done using one of several methods that include: 1.Direct suggestion. 2.Counting method. 3.Stepwise relaxation. 4.Counting using imagery suggestions. 5.Feelings of heaviness. 6.The use of touch during the process to relax the body.

  9. 9. Patients have the opportunity to relax during hypnosis, the support of pharmaceutical drugs to maintain that relaxation, and cognitive behaviors training to recognize anxiety triggers and retrain their bodily response before and during the onset of anxiety.
