Insights from Over 1000 Sessions on the effectiveness of Hypnotherapy for Anxiety

Over the course of more than 1000 sessions with clients struggling with high levels of anxiety, including daily panic attacks, I’ve learned a great deal about how our body and brain work in relation to anxiety. While anxiety can manifest in various specific ways, such as driving anxiety or social anxiety, underlying all of these is a common thread: unhelpful thought processes that keep anxiety at high levels. Let’s dive into what anxiety is, how it develops, and how hypnotherapy can help you unlearn these patterns and regain control of your life.

What is Anxiety?

First, let’s clarify what anxiety is not. Anxiety is not a chromosome you inherited; it is not an unavoidable genetic destiny. Rather, anxiety is a learned, unhelpful way of dealing with stressful events. It is our response to stress, which we may have learned through trial and error, sometimes consciously, sometimes unconsciously. Often, we learn these responses from our parents, either by observing their behavior or through direct interactions, mostly unconsciously.

The Nature of Learned Anxiety

Anxiety can develop in various ways. For some, it may manifest in specific scenarios, such as:

  • Driving Anxiety: Fear and panic associated with driving or being in a car.
  • Social Anxiety: Intense fear of social situations and being judged by others.
  • Health Anxiety: Excessive worry about having or developing a serious illness.
  • Performance Anxiety: Fear of performing tasks in front of others, such as public speaking or work presentations.
  • Separation Anxiety: Intense fear or distress when separated from a loved one.
  • Generalized Anxiety: Persistent and excessive worry about various aspects of daily life.

Regardless of how anxiety presents itself, the underlying mechanism is the same: unhelpful thought processes that keep anxiety at high levels. The good news is that we can unlearn these responses. With the help of hypnotherapy, we can interrupt old, unhelpful patterns and instill new, beneficial processes so you can deal with stress differently.

The Impact of Long-Term Anxiety

After long-term high levels of anxiety, many people start experiencing bouts of depression. This combination can lead to a very deep, dark hole that feels impossible to climb out of. However, I have seen people truly turn their lives around with hypnotherapy. Some see results after just one session, while others may take three or four sessions.

Clients have reported numerous positive changes beyond just reduced anxiety. Some of these unexpected benefits include:

  • Quitting Smoking: Reducing anxiety can alleviate the need for coping mechanisms like smoking.
  • Relief from Chronic Pain: Years of pain in the body can disappear.
  • Improved Fertility: Some clients have even reported suddenly falling pregnant.
  • Enhanced Relationships: Many clients talk about how their relationships have improved as they are no longer so highly strung.
  • Pursuing Passions: Others have pursued activities and passions they were too afraid to try before.

The Role of Relaxation in Hypnosis

Part of our hypnotherapy process at EcoMindz includes relaxation techniques. Although technically one does not need relaxation to induce hypnosis—rather, a focused state of attention is required—relaxation is useful for the mind and body to re-learn how to relax and understand what that feels like.

Common Questions and Concerns About Hypnosis for Anxiety

Many clients come with questions like “Am I doing this right?”, “Is this working?”, or even fears around losing control. These concerns are perfectly normal, especially since most of my clients have never done hypnosis before. I make sure to cover all of these questions before the hypnosis session and remind you of them during the session as well. This way, you can feel comfortable and safe, knowing exactly what to expect.

What Our Clients Say

To give you an idea of what our clients have experienced, here are a few Google reviews:

  • “I went in for anxiety, expecting it to take a few sessions for the anxiety to ebb away. Literally the day after my first session I felt that my anxiety was tame compared to the beast it had been.”
  • “I noticed a difference from session 1 and have had such a sense of relief after suffering for years. Hypnosis was nothing at all like I expected, and I felt very comfortable and safe the entire time.”
  • “Hypnotherapy really helped me to gain independence and control over my life, as well as enjoy social situations more without uncontrollable worrying and overthinking.”
