Hypnotherapy - Stress Management

There are many things that can cause people considerable stress, fear and worry. The list could be endless! Subjects seeking hypnotherapy can have any number of issues they wish to address through hypnosis. The more common conditions people want to address are:

  • Quit Smoking
  • Weight Loss
  • Alcohol Treatment
  • Illness
  • Anxiety/Stress Disorders
  • Insomnia
  • Emotional Disorders
  • Claustrophobia
  • Fears of flying, heights, public speaking,

These aspects of one's life can cause extreme upset, frustration and even physical pain depending on the severity of a condition and the level of control it has over a person. After exploring various avenues for effective treatment, many turn to Hypnotherapy for help.

Almost everyone probably has some type of a fear, phobia or disorder. Many experience mild symptoms that have no real noticeable effect on their everyday happiness. More extreme cases are those individuals with full blown symptoms that prevent them from reaching their goals and aims in life. It is these individuals that seek Hypnotherapy to overcome whatever it is that is holding them back from feeling fully fulfilled and in control.

Hypnotherapy is undeniably effective when dealing with phobias because fears are manifested in the subconscious mind. When looking up phobias/extreme fears in the dictionary, you will learn that a phobia is an irrational, excessive and persistent fear of something or a situation. Regardless of what the rational or conscious mind is telling you, the fear persists in the subconscious mind and overpowers all rationality. In extreme cases, no matter how much a person assures themselves that they are in control their subconscious mind will strongly persist.

As Hypnosis is a direct way to the subconscious, it is no surprise that this type of therapy can be instrumental in disarming irrational fear. With the use of Hypnotherapy, most phobias can be traced back to a defining event in one's life. A profound fear of heights for example could be related to a nasty fall as a child. A fear of flying could be traced back to a time when an individual lost a loved one in a plane crash. The aim of Hypnosis is to discover the cause of the fear and desensitize the patient for its grasp.
