It is my opinion that any living being is going to experience anxiety at some point in their life. Anxiety is a good thing as it helps us manage risk and see situations from all aspects, Anxiety can help insure that we are prepared for challenges such as academic tests or physical responsibilities. Those with increased anxiety may be more deliberate thinkers that exercise stronger judgment. So there are many ways that anxiety can manifest and present positive outcomes for people.
For some though, too much anxiety can produce a limiting effect that slows one down and inhibits the full experience of life. If this is you, hypnosis may present an alternative solution in addition to meditation, spiritual exercises, a mental health provider or medication.
Using hypnosis, I have helped many clients manage anxiety, reframe past trauma, and mitigate limiting behaviors. Life's too short to let anxiety rule your experience. If you are seeing a mental health professional, consider asking them if hypnosis would be an option for you. If you are not seeing a mental health professional and would like to learn more about hypnosis, just Google some key words - "hypnosis and anxiety" for example and you will see lots of helpful information. When you are ready, contact me and I will be happy to consult with you specifically about your situation and the outcomes you desire.
