Anxiety is known to be one of the most common psychological trauma people do experience. Anxiety is the initial complaint psychiatrists get to hear from most patients, and it is prevalent among women than men. Anxiety is common with many conditions both psychological and physical.


Hypnotherapy is a form of alternative medicine that aims to achieve a state of trance through guided relaxation, intense concentration, and focused attention. In a state of trance, the happening around the individual is suspended, and attention is drawn to specific thoughts, and this is done with the help of a trained therapist.

How Hypnotherapy for Anxiety Works

Hypnotherapy is a form of psychotherapy which comes in the way of counseling and not a treatment in incense. Hypnosis state gives the opportunity to explore feelings, memories and painful thoughts that are from the past and hidden in the subconscious mind. Hypnosis also helps to block the reality of pain from the mind. Hypnotherapy works primarily in two forms as listed below namely; suggestion therapy and psychoanalysis.

Psycho-analysis allows us to explore certain factors from the subconscious mind which might be responsible for some psychological disturbance such as tragic events of the past that is locked deep down in the subconscious. Psychotherapy can be employed when such factor is identified using Hypnosis.

Hypnotherapy is carried out by a licensed mental health practitioner who is certified to perform this procedure on people following the ethics that are laid down for Hypnosis.

The 3 Anxiety-Related Problems Hypnosis Can Address

  • Moodiness and Emotional Strain                                                                          Frequent and persistent Anxiety can strain an individual emotionally. Anxiety drains physical energy as it has characteristic symptoms that make a person be persistently discontented and easily worried. This negative feeling can keep a person perpetually drained and on the edge. Hypnosis corrects this anomaly by restricting the mind frame through changing of negative mindset and beliefs with a better positive outlook to things. The therapist focuses on implanting belief of happy feeling, a bold and confident mindset who appreciates himself/herself. In so doing, Anxiety is erased from the mind.


  • Strain and Physical Tension                                                                               Physical pain and tension can be responsible for emotional tension, and this can be managed using Hypnosis. Hypnotherapy works towards addressing the belief that triggers Anxiety and this will eventually reduce the frequency and gravity of the physical strain symptoms. These symptoms include bodily shaking, rapid breathing and faster heart rate. Hypnosis will substitute feeling of discomfort with suggestions of comfortable feeling in the real sense. This makes the mind to overcome the triggers of Anxiety and subduing the strain that comes with it.


  • Sleeping Difficulty                                                                                               Anxiety is usually characterized by the difficulty to sleep at night. Anxiety makes sleeping to be a struggle, and when sleep is achieved, it lacks depth and sometimes riddled with nightmares and so much muscle tension. A therapist through the help of Hypnosis can help a patient to implant a suggestion of having a good sleep in recent times. Also, the thought pattern that contributed to this anxious state can be altered by keeping thought with a safe limit so that it does not get out of hand by keeping a patient always awake which is extremely dangerous to the physical well-being.
