Hypnotherapy for Anxiety and Depression

“The disorders [ anxiety and depression] are two sides of the same coin. Over the past couple of years, clinicians and researchers alike have been moving toward a new conclusion: Depression and anxiety are not two disorders that coexist. They are two faces of one disorder” (Psychology Today).
Your anxiety/depression began as an emotional reaction or urge in the unconscious mind. When you interpreted events, you did so at a feeling level, as well as a logical level. Using hypnotherapy for anxiety and reactive depression targets the problem at its emotional inception, while also working through the issue consciously.
You may not remember where or how it all started, but your unconscious mind knows, even when your waking mind doesn’t! Using hypnotherapy and NLP for anxiety and depression can heal trauma, phobias, panic attacks, chronically low motivation, or other problems. These and other symptoms can be overcome with hypnotherapy and neuo linguistic programming (NLP) in many cases, where it is psychologically caused. The approach will depend upon the individual.
Some of the types of anxiety I have successfully worked with includes generalised anxiety disorder, social phobia or social anxiety, illness anxiety, claustrophobia, fear of vomiting, fear of heights, fear of certain creatures, anxiety over travel motion, and separation anxiety, to name a few.
Symptoms can often be ‘dislodged’ with the use of timeline therapy, as just one example, as we uncover and resolve the original trigger. Regression is one in a series of techniques to help you overcome anxiety and depression. There are also useful techniques that I can teach you to manage symptoms while we resolve the underlying trigger(s).
Using hypnotherapy for anxiety and depression as well as trauma and phobias often has spin-off benefits which help with additional symptoms such as as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or eczema. In other cases you may find that binge drinking, smoking addiction or weight issues are resolved as you understand and reframe the cause of your problem. Where the issue is psychologically based, hypnotherapy and NLP can help.
