7 Compelling Reasons to Use Hypnosis for Anxiety

Updated: Jul 10, 2023

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is an increased state of awareness and relaxation that results in clients experiencing improved concentration and focus. Certified practitioners use mental images, verbal repetition, and visual cues to guide clients to this state. Most people feel very relaxed and calm while under hypnosis and are more open to behavioral changes and helpful suggestions. Therefore, hypnosis can help you gain more control over activities or behaviors you'd like to change.

How can Hypnosis Help Anxiety?

People who suffer from anxiety experience feelings of being tense, nervous, fearful, and the inability to relax. They manage these painful emotions by avoiding stressful situations. Avoidance gives them short-term relief, but these negative feelings tend to return and reoccur without intervention. This cycle repeats itself until these fears and anxieties become more intense and difficult to manage.

Hypnosis can assist these individuals by reducing the anxiety and stress associated with fears, phobias, personal relationships, the pain associated with medical problems, and more. Studies have shown that hypnosis can be an effective intervention for reducing anxiety.

Hypnotic Spirals

Hypnosis can help by assisting clients to a deep state of relaxation. Anxious thoughts lessen, and suggestions for healthier replacement behaviors can be more easily accepted. Hypnotists can also help clients to reframe or view their anxiety issues from a different perspective, which promotes personal growth and increased self-awareness. Clients can also learn coping strategies and techniques that reduce stress and anxiety before it begins.

What are the benefits of hypnosis?

  • Hypnosis for anxiety is a natural solution

  • Hypnosis promotes client self-awareness

  • Hypnosis can teach clients to manage anxiety with self-care

  • Hypnosis is a short-term intervention (as compared to therapy)

  • Hypnosis can increase motivation, goal setting, and managing habits

  • Hypnosis can help with social anxiety

  • Hypnosis can help you relax more in your daily living

If you’re willing to give hypnosis a try...

  • Find a hypnotist you trust. Do your research, inquire about their training and certification, and ask to speak to past clients of theirs. Confidence in your care provider is key.

  • Focus on your motivation to change. When you are ready, remain open-minded and stick with it, results will likely follow.

  • Hypnosis is a partnership. Both you and your hypnotist work together in the healing process.

  • You don’t need to be actively listening for hypnosis to work. The commands and messages your hypnotist gives you are absorbed by the subconscious mind

  • You are in control of your session. You still have free will. The hypnotist is just there to facilitate.
