Overcoming Fear and Anxiety with Hypnosis
It's very difficult to combat lack of self-confidence yourself, but there are confidence techniques you can
use. You can learn to let negative feelings go, and turn negative thoughts into positive ones. You can
re-programme your beliefs and goals in a positive way, and see yourself in the future being confident.
Many people struggle each day to overcome fear and anxiety. We're not talking about being afraid that you
didn't pass your last test or anxiety over a job interview. Anxiety and fear become deep rooted elements of a
person's life and can create havoc in relationships and make it impossible to function on a day to day basis.
Anxiety often creates a snowball effect of emotions that take place when something, even the smallest thing,
goes wrong in a person's life. For example, for someone struggling with anxiety, even the minutest
intrusion can throw his or her entire day out of line.
Let's say you are getting ready for work and your cat throws up on your carpet. Automatically your mind starts racing. This means you are going to be late for work, which means your boss is going to think you are irresponsible, which means you are never going to get the raise you need to buy your first home which means you are going to be stuck in an apartment forever and your whole financial life is ruined. In an instant cat vomit is equated to a destroyed life for someone dealing with anxiety.
Fear Is Often Related To Anxiety Individuals often become afraid of things that have led them to anxiety in the past. The individual in the above example may never look at cats the same way again. Fear leads to the avoidance of things that people fear and can create havoc in their lives such as the example given above. People may become phobic of snakes, spiders, clowns, chickens and many other things.
A New Approach Perhaps you are someone struggling to overcome fear and anxiety. You may have tried different methods including counseling and anti-anxiety medications to make it go away but nothing has worked. You may have spent hours in the self-help section of your local bookstore with no luck.
You still have one more option available to try and that is hypnotherapy or hypnosis. No, hypnosis does not mean that you are put into a trance by a freaky man with a pocket watch. The problem with basic therapy is that it simply uses the conscious portion of your brain. The conscious part is the portion that controls and assists you with day-to-day thought processes.
The purpose of hypnotherapy is to relax the conscious level of the brain and subdue it so that the subconscious portion is allowed to come forward. What is the subconscious? The subconscious mind is that portion of your brain that takes care of your automatic day-to-day business such as riding a bicycle. You have done it so many times that conscious thought is no longer required for these tasks.
Once the subconscious is accessible to the hypnotherapist, he or she will work with you to rewire your subconscious. For example, if you are afraid of spiders, a hypnotist can help you relate spiders to something light and funny instead of something to be afraid of. Over time, you will learn that you are significantly bigger than your fears and can overcome fear and anxiety, along with other things, all through hypnotherapy!
