Many people today suffer from anxiety. Most of them are afraid that something is seriously wrong with them, and even worse - they have a fear that it might be incurable.
The facts are that in today's Western society EVERY THIRD PERSON SUFFERS A CLINICALLY SIGNIFICANT ANXIETY DISORDER at some time in their life.
Symptoms of anxiety are wide and varied.
Anxiety often expresses itself in physical symptoms such as increased heart rate, difficulties in breathing, tension in different places of the body, dizziness, weakness, vomiting, hyperventilation, and more.
People suffering anxiety typically experience a lack of energy due to all their energy being channeled to a 'fight or flight' body mode, and to constant worrying.
Sleeping difficulties are common. Many people cannot stop thinking about their worries while in bed, and fail to sleep.
A big anxiety challenge is that it produces a FEAR OF THE FEAR. Anxious people often spend much time and energy worrying and fearing "when and how will the next fear come?", living in a nightmare, constantly replaying in their mind all the worst scenarios HAPPENING TO THEM at the worst times, places and situations. It is an overwhelming feeling of lack of control.
Stemming from all the above, anxious people become experts in AVOIDING. They do their best to avoid everything that might trigger these symptoms and thoughts. As a result, they miss out on many beautiful things in life. Unfortunately, even the things they don't have to avoid are being missed out on, because spending most of their energy on avoiding leaves them little time and energy for the rest of the good things that life has to offer.
As mentioned, in today's Western society anxiety is highly common. Every third person suffers a clinically significant anxiety disorder at some time in their life. Overwhelmed by anxiety, people turn to the doctor for immediate help and relief.
Doctors frequently prescribe anti-anxiety medication. The medication can sometimes be helpful as a crutch, when it numbs people's emotions, including the overwhelming anxiety. Often people report that medication numbs all emotions, and so they are unable to fully experience the positive ones. The problems with anti-anxiety medication are that it does not cure the anxiety, and dependency is very common. In many cases the dependency on these widely prescribed drugs is to a severe degree, that is very hard to overcome. Some people suffer years of severe withdrawal when they make the brave decision to overcome common anti-anxiety medication dependency.
Hypnotherapy and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) use completely natural ways that people have successfully used since the beginning of time to cure and heal people from anxiety for good, and with NO SIDE EFFECTS.
How does Hypnotherapy and NLP cure people from anxiety?
To simplify, anxiety is the habitual focusing on the negative and on the future. Instead of having a balanced view of things, anxious people tend to over think about bad things that might happen and about what could go wrong. In their perception they often delete and forget about positive things in their life and positive possibilities.
There is a simple principle in life: What you focus on is what you get.
When you focus on the negative, you'll feel bad.
The major difference between anxious people and happy or calm people is their focus of attention. Happy calm people don't necessarily have less traumas or less sad or negative things happening in their lives. They are simply focused on the good things that have happened and that are happening and that will happen. Hoping for good things to come does not promise it will. Yet, it has a good effect on the person, as well as increasing the chances for these good things to happen. Your mind works best with a clear picture and a clear direction of where you want to go. Your mind will follow the direction you give it, whether negative or positive. Neuro Linguistic Programming modeled successful people from different realms of life. The first factor that is common to all these different successful people, is that when they started out they all had a good outcome picture of how they will be after achieving what they set out to do.
Hypnotherapy and NLP help you automatically be refocused on helpful thoughts and resourceful body sensations. With the help of different techniques you relax, you choose what you want to automatically appear on your own 'screen'. Hypnotherapy and NLP then create the link to your own helpful pictures, thoughts, sensations and memories so they subconsciously and automatically replace the negative ones.
Some of the techniques involve conversation and imagining pictures and sensations while in a wakeful state, eyes open. Some techniques involve different trance work and depth. According to the client's preference, therapeutic work can be focused on the here and now, and/or by exploring the past and healing it in trance. When clients choose to explore their past it is done in a safe and pleasant way, bringing positive emotions, resources and healing to where it was needed.
Hypnotherapy and NLP access your subconscious level, thus bringing a lifelong change. You don't have to think about it anymore, it ends the struggle and the conscious effort to stay calm or reach calmness. Instead you become naturally calm from within.
During the process you will be assigned some homework, such as visualization, breathing, exercise, and focusing on specific things a couple of times a day. This takes a few minutes daily, and people who do this tend to achieve better and faster results.
How long will it take?
Successful results can be achieved from a single session, and more often a few (4-6 average) sessions are needed to reach a full life-transforming change, and to live free from anxiety, waking up every morning joyful and at peace.
