The Guessing Machine! What part does it play in maintaining and generating anxiety? What can we do to mitigate its power to enable us to feel more relaxed.
Anxiety responds really well to hypnotherapy, However, there are some things that we train our clients to do that assist in the process, and even without hypnotherapy they can really help someone with anxiety. In these articles I explain these techniques.
Phobias although fairly simple in terms of anxiety disorders can themselves be underpinned by many different facets and reasons. However what this study shows is that we are not born with them so it has to be conditioning. The great news for those who suffer with phobias is that if it’s conditioning then it can be changed.
As a society we start to pick up inappropriate habits right from childhood. Things like using food as a treat or reward. “If you’re a good girl you can have a sweet/biscuit/ice cream” or who remembers a parent saying something like “eat all your dinner and you can have a pudding” or “you must eat all your dinner as there are starving people in Africa”. This is just one area where we are hypnotised in our life into inappropriate beliefs.

The government has announced this week its new mental health strategy for England and promises an extra £400m for therapies, such as counselling, so as to increase access to them by 60% by 2015. This together with the shift of NHS spending to the GP’s might explain why we at The Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy have been approached by two local GP’s this week to discuss sending their patients to us for effective help with smoking cessation.
How is anxiety generated, maintained and enhanced. There are ways to combat it that perhaps you haven’t tried. Hypnotherapy is backed by a raft of scientific research and is very effective in the fight to remove anxiety.
The man that could not eat in public.
This case study explains in detail the treatment stages we use in helping someone to resolve their anxiety issues using Hypnotherapy.
What is Anxiety? How does it develop? Most of us have experienced anxiety at some time in our life but for some of us it becomes a debilitating force that if left untreated can continue to get worse.
