Easing Anxiety with Hypnosis: Three Effective Solutions

Anxiety – it's like an uninvited guest that overstays its welcome, isn’t it? But what if I told you that you have the power to show this guest the door? Welcome to our exploration of easing anxiety with one of the most powerful tools at our disposal: hypnosis. Today, I want to share three effective hypnosis solutions that have helped many find their path to a more peaceful mind.

Before diving in, remember that hypnosis isn’t about losing control. It’s about gaining control over unconscious processes that run in the background of your mind. So, let’s explore how we can harness this power to alleviate anxiety.

With that said, here are 3 effective solutions to anxiety that hypnosis can provide! 👊

Solution 1: Guided Imagery in Hypnosis

  • The Power of Visualization: Imagine a place where you feel utterly at peace. This could be a beach, a cozy room by a fire, or a quiet forest. With guided imagery in hypnosis, we transport you to this place of tranquility. It’s not mere daydreaming; it’s a structured process where a hypnotist helps you engage all your senses to create a vivid, calming experience.

  • Why It Works: When you’re deeply immersed in this peaceful imagery, your mind receives a signal that it’s safe to relax. This process significantly reduces anxiety as it directs your focus away from stressors and engages the relaxation response in your body.

Solution 2: Suggestion Therapy

  • Harnessing the Power of Suggestion: Suggestions are powerful. In a state of hypnosis, your mind becomes more receptive to positive suggestions. These suggestions are tailored to counteract anxiety-producing thoughts. For instance, replacing the thought “I am always stressed” with “Each day, I grow more relaxed and at peace.”

  • The Science Behind It: This isn’t just wishful thinking. It’s based on the principle that our thoughts greatly influence our emotional state. By altering these thoughts at a subconscious level, we can induce real and lasting changes in our feelings and behaviors.

Solution 3: Self-Hypnosis Techniques

  • Empowering Self-Relief: Self-hypnosis is a skill you can learn to manage anxiety on your own. It involves techniques to enter a hypnotic state, where you can deliver self-guided positive affirmations and relaxation methods.

  • Long-Term Benefits: The beauty of self-hypnosis is that it empowers you to take control whenever anxiety begins to surface. It’s a tool you carry with you, offering a way to regain calm and control in moments of stress.

Now, let’s talk about why hypnosis might just be the solution you’ve been searching for. Unlike medication, which often treats the symptoms of anxiety, hypnosis aims to get to the root of the issue. It’s about reprogramming those automatic thought patterns that fuel your anxiety. Think of it as updating the software of your mind to run more smoothly and peacefully.

The beauty of hypnosis lies in its versatility and its ability to be tailored to your individual needs. Whether it’s through one-on-one sessions or learning self-hypnosis techniques, the goal is to equip you with the tools to manage and reduce your anxiety effectively.

I’ve seen firsthand the transformative power of hypnosis. From clients who’ve struggled with anxiety for years, to those facing new stressors, the relief and empowerment they experience are profound. It’s not just about reducing anxiety; it’s about rediscovering a sense of inner peace and control.

But don’t just take my word for it. The true test of hypnosis’ effectiveness is in your experience. It’s in that moment of relief, that newfound sense of calm, and the ability to face situations that once seemed overwhelming with newfound serenity.

If you’re curious about how hypnosis can help you specifically, I encourage you to reach out. Book a strategy call with me, and let’s discuss how we can tailor a hypnosis approach to suit your unique situation. It’s not just about easing anxiety; it’s about unlocking a more relaxed, confident, and joyful you. Together, we can chart a course towards a life where anxiety doesn’t hold the reins – where you are in control.

Remember, the journey to overcoming anxiety is just as important as the destination. And in this journey, you’re not alone. Let’s embark on this path together. Book your strategy call now, and let’s turn the page towards a more peaceful chapter in your life.

Hear more about me on the Work Smart Hypnosis Podcast with Jason Linett

I recently had the honor of being a guest on the Work Smart Hypnosis Podcast with Jason Linett where I got to share some of my story about how I became a hypnotist, my perspectives on hypnotic change work and why I believe that difficult situations we find ourselves in aren't problems but opportunities for change, growth, and personal transformation.


My Story


In the beginning

For far too long, I had a bad case of the "sposetas." I was living my life based on what I thought I was "sposeta" do, and not living for myself. When there is a conflict between the emotional and logical mind, the emotional mind will always win. This is when I first started struggling with anxiety - because I wasn't living my life in a way that was authentic to myself. So I changed, and I thought I had those old anxiety issues under control until...


And then..

In 2014, I had Bell's palsy, and things never went back to normal. I had basically given up on life. My anxiety went through the roof and I would have constant panic attacks any time I went out in public, so I quit going out. I barely ever saw my friends, became agoraphobic, and gained a ton of weight. Which of course made everything much worse! I didn’t just lose all hope - I lost myself.


My Breakthrough

I knew that wasn't who I was, and eventually enough was enough. I was determined to take back control of my life, and no longer be a prisoner of anxiety. That is how I discovered hypnosis. Thanks to hypnosis, I was able to take back control of my life and not only regain my confidence - but dramatically increase it. Now, the very idea of having a panic attack is as foreign to me as it was before I ever even heard of the term let alone experienced one.


Why I Do What I Do

I became a hypnotist because nobody should have to go through what I did on my journey. And if there is a silver lining to it then that is I can use the wisdom I gained to give others the tools they need to keep growing and succeeding - so I can help others free themselves from whatever old stories they've been telling themselves that kept them stuck. Nobody should have to go through what I did and I want the world to know that nobody has to.


We are all not that different

Use this section to address concerns someone might have about YOU - which they think makes you unique, special, or have super powers? Explain to them that you are just a person. You are human just like them and if YOU can do it, so can they. It doesn't take magic or mystical wisdom to achieve success and victory.

Are you ready to unlock your full potential?
