“What gets rid of anxiety?”
These are direct questions I receive from curious people around the planet, and I love answering them according to my observations as a Hypnotherapist.
Traditionally, Psychotherapy and medications are the most popular methods of treating anxiety. I must say, for the most part, both methods work. You’ll need to make a decision that is best for you.
Hypnotherapy has become very popular recently (and this poses positives and negatives). First, in many regions hypnosis is not regulated. The client must make sure to research with whom they are speaking. Ensure the “therapist” has adequate knowledge and experience to help you overcome your struggles. Some only care about money, will not listen to you, think they know how you feel, or promise “miracles!”
Hypnosis cannot perform miracles, and cannot transform you into a “superhero.” If you hear any of these statements, I suggest you look elsewhere.
There is nothing wrong with a prospective clients asking questions and being involved in their healing. I love it when clients become involved it is necessary.
Hypnotherapy is very effective for treating the effects of anxiety and stress. It will help you manage and in most cases excel (please do not discontinue taking your medications or therapy without speaking with your Physician first). Hypnotists are not permitted to provide a diagnosis (unless they are a Doctor) many do that and may cause more harm than good.
A professional Hypnotist will guide you through the entire process, helping you overcome what was agreed to. Please make sure the Hypnotist knows exactly what the issue is. They should be asking you many questions, please be prepared.
And in closing, hypnosis is a very powerful tool to help you feel better and will not take years to do so. Expect a few sessions until hypnosis and the new coding become apparent (no quick fixes or magic wands sorry).
Feel free to contact me personally with your hypnosis questions, or consider hypnosis as your therapy.
