Stress & Insomnia
Life is increasingly stressful stressful. We may not be able to control everything that happens but we can control how we react.
Life is full of things that cause stress but we often don't realize how destructive prolonged stress really is. Stress causes our body to function differently, literally wear down. It's called "Allostatic Load" It weakens our immune system and negatively impacts our digestion. It worsens pain and discomfort. It causes a fatigue AND leads to distressed sleep.
SLEEP DEPRIVATION increases the negative effects of allostatic load because we aren't getting the physical and mental rejuvenation that comes with a good night's sleep.
Hypnosis and Mindfulness practice are proven methods of reducing stress, changing our reaction to stressful situations and even reversing some of the negative consequences of stress.
Let me know if you have trouble sleeping and we can easily add that facet of hypnosis to our session.
Anxiety And Social Anxiety
Anxiety often grows out of constant stress. It may become constant enough that we don't even remember when or how it started. But we can still address it with great effect.
Hypnosis addresses even the unconscious sources and causes of anxiety as well as dealing with the external triggers for elevated anxiety or panic. It is an excellent practice to complement any treatment you may be receiving. Many find hypnosis, learning self-hypnosis or practicing mindfulness and excellent remedy on its own.
SOCIAL ANXIETY is a specific kind of anxiety that results in a person being overly cautious, unduly frightened or even incapacitated in social environments. For many, even the prospect of having to function socially, can cause anxiety and panic. Hypnosis can help you manage the symptoms of social anxiety while relearning the skills and confidence of successful social interaction.
Fears & Phobias
Fear is a basic survival strategy that is part of being human but we were never meant to live in fear or to allow it to control or limit our lives.
Whether you experience situational phobias like fear of heights, public speaking, enclosed spaces, text anxiety, spiders or have a general fear of problems that never actually seem to materialize, hypnosis can be a powerful wan to reducing or even eliminating those fears and phobias.
If your fear stops you from doing what you want to do, it's a problem. Hypnosis facilitates desensitization, can reveal long-forgotten root causes, and establish new patterns of reactions to situations and events which trigger the phobia.
One to three visits is usually enough to deal with common phobias.
