Overcoming Anxiety with Hypnosis

Welcome to my very first blog post!

Have you ever felt trapped in the overwhelming grip of anxiety? Do those racing thoughts and constant worries steal away your moments of peace and joy, keeping you up at night? If you’re nodding along, just know you’re not alone. Anxiety is a common struggle, but there’s light at the end of the tunnel.

What is Anxiety, Really?

Let’s start by exploring anxiety together…

Have you ever felt that knot in your stomach when faced with an upcoming challenge or uncertain situation? Yep, that sounds like anxiety. It’s a natural response to life’s uncertainties, but when it starts to overshadow our days and hijack our thoughts, it’s time to take a closer look.

When we face a perceived threat or stressful situation, our body’s stress response kicks into high gear. This triggers a cascade of physiological changes known as the “fight or flight” response. Our heart races, our breathing quickens, and adrenaline floods our system, preparing us to confront the perceived danger or flee from it.

But here’s something to consider: in today’s fast paced world, our stress response can become activated even in non-life threatening situations, like a looming deadline at work, a disagreement with your partner, that unexpected bill, or like me running late for the school run today because of a fallen tree and roadworks. And when that happens, anxiety can spiral out of control, leaving us feeling overwhelmed and stressed!

The Power of the Subconscious Mind

Now, let’s consider the mysterious world of the subconscious mind…

Have you ever wondered why certain thoughts seem to pop into your head seemingly out of nowhere, or why certain situations trigger intense emotional reactions? That’s the subconscious at work, quietly pulling the strings behind the scenes.

Our subconscious mind is like the hidden engine that drives our thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. It operates below the level of our conscious awareness, influencing everything from our habits and beliefs to our deepest fears and desires.

Think of it as the autopilot of our minds, guiding our actions based on past experiences and learned patterns. For example, have you ever found yourself reacting to a situation in a way that seemed completely irrational? That’s your subconscious mind at work, drawing on past experiences to shape your present behaviour.

But here’s the thing: while our subconscious mind may hold the keys to our deepest fears and insecurities, it’s also the gateway to our greatest strengths and potential for growth. It’s like a treasure trove waiting to be unlocked, holding the secrets to lasting change and transformation.

Struggling with Anxiety: My Personal Journey

I’ll share a little secret: I’ve been in your shoes. Social anxiety was a constant struggle for me, making social interactions tough and leaving me feeling alone. When I started university, the pressure of being the first in my family to attend, coupled with undiagnosed dyslexia, made me doubt if I belonged there. This doubt only further triggered my anxiety. That’s when I turned to hypnotherapy for help.

Maybe you’ve experienced something similar in your own life. Perhaps you’ve struggled with anxiety for years, quietly struggling with those inner challenges while putting on a brave face for the world to see. Maybe you’re curious about hypnotherapy but sceptical, with worries and doubts about whether it could really make a difference.

How Solution Focused Hypnotherapy Works

Now, you might be wondering: how does solution focused hypnotherapy compare to other forms of therapy like CBT and psychotherapy?

Solution focused hypnotherapy works by addressing both the conscious and subconscious aspects of our mind. Through a combination of mindset coaching, including techniques like NLP, CBT, Solution Focused Therapy and deep relaxation through hypnosis, it helps reframe negative thoughts, develop effective coping strategies, and rewrite limiting beliefs stored in the subconscious.

  • Efficiency: Solution focused hypnotherapy often requires fewer sessions compared to traditional talk therapies, making it a cost effective option for many.
  • Effectiveness: Research, such as a study conducted by Smith et al. (2019), suggests that solution focused hypnotherapy can produce rapid and profound results, offering relief for a wide range of issues, including anxiety, phobias, and PTSD.

Hypnosis, a key component of solution focused hypnotherapy, induces a natural and relaxed state of focused concentration. We experience similar trance like states in our daily lives, such as when driving a familiar route or reading a good book. In this relaxed state, hypnotherapy helps alleviate anxiety by promoting feelings of calmness, reprogramming negative thought patterns at a subconscious level, and unlocking the potential for positive change.
