One of my most-asked questions is this: “Will hypnotherapy help my anxiety and depression?”
No one can promise a cure for anxiety and depression without a medical license, but my clients have had some amazing results.
For some people, anxiety and depression are medical issues. (If you have clinically diagnosed depression, seek the services of a medical professional — physician, psychiatrist, or psychologist.)
For others, their sadness and fear comes from painful life experiences that have changed the way they interact with the world. For those people, hypnosis can offer a spectacular transformation for the good.
Why does hypnosis work? Because it gets to the underlying causes of your condition.
Past incidents, often unremembered, such as poor parenting, trauma at school, painful relationships, and other events can make us fearful and sad, even after the events seem to be healed on the surface and are forgotten.
In response to those painful events, people sometimes turn to bothersome behaviors, such as overeating, drinking too much, or taking drugs. They may find themselves with no energy or angry and yelling or crying for no obvious reason. They may find themselves in the same negative relationships over and over again.
My clients often say, “I have no idea why I do what I do.”
Hypnosis gets quickly and easily to the core pain and neutralizes it. You don’t forget the incident; you simply take the energy out of it. It doesn’t carry the same punch it did.
Once you understand why you do what you do, you can make rational decisions in your life without pain manipulating you into repeating unhealthy behaviors.
If you are suffering from a non-medical depression or anxiety issue or if you’re practicing behaviors that aren’t serving you, hypnosis might be the answer to help you to start living the life you want and deserve.
