Hypnosis for Anxiety
Do you feel trapped by your own thoughts and emotions?
Do you overthink a thousand ways things can go wrong only to find you’ve worried yourself sick for no reason?
Are you ready to stop letting anxiety define who you are and start living the life you truly deserve?
Living with anxious thoughts and feelings can be crippling. However, you aren’t alone if you are battling with anxiety symptoms and ongoing anxious feelings. Current statistics indicate that there are two million people living with anxiety in Australia today, making anxiety disorders the most common mental health condition in Australia.
The fact is, though, anxiety is actually a perfectly natural response to potential harm and exists as a biological function to get you out of the way of this potential harm. So, for example, say you suspect something bad is going to happen – maybe a storm is coming, or you have heard someone approaching who wishes to do you harm.
Your body kicks into ‘fight or flight’ mode, which means that you are ready to act – which also results in the often unpleasant symptoms of anxiety. These include physical symptoms, like cold sweats, flushing of the skin, and a release of adrenaline. While these things are helpful when getting away from a threat, they’re not particularly welcome when they are with you every hour of the day. Anxiety manifests when you have an overreaction from your anxiety response which continues on even when a threat is not present.
If you feel as though your anxiety responses outweigh the input of potential threats, you may be experiencing an anxiety disorder. Anxiety is a mental health condition that occurs when the sufferer is constantly in a state of fear without reasonable input to initiate this fear response. From social anxiety disorder to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), to panic disorder, to a generalised anxiety disorder — anxiety disorders look different for everybody. Some people with more severe anxiety disorders also suffer from panic attacks.
If you are seeking help for your declining mental health, have recently experienced a panic attack, have either been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder or suspect you may have moderate anxiety — we can help you to reduce the overwhelming thoughts and feelings associated with anxiety disorders.
A hypnotherapy session is completed with a mental health professional to ensure that your anxiety disorder is treated with the care and expertise you deserve. You may have tried other psychological or counselling treatments and found the experience made your anxiety worse or just didn’t help the overthinking at all. In that case, hypnotherapy with a trained therapist could be the best treatment for you.
By using hypnosis to treat anxiety, you can free yourself from anxiety and mental health concerns and feel happier and more confident.

How Hypnosis for Anxiety Can Help
Chances are, if you are reading this far, you are here because you are living with anxiety, and you are sick of it. Sick of the fear in the pit of your stomach, the tightness in your chest, the impact overthinking is having on your relationships and your life; you want to change. That’s where we come in.
Hypnotherapy can help to reduce anxiety significantly. However, if you feel anxious about how hypnosis works and want to research the treatment plan first, that’s natural — let us talk you through it.
Generally, being in a hypnotic state is very relaxing. It can be described as becoming so focused on one thing, that everything else seems to temporarily disappear. While hypnosis is normally very relaxing, it isn’t always. Some people find hypnotherapy euphoric, some feel extreme happiness when hypnotised, and others find the process of being hypnotised very freeing and liberating to experience. The trance-like state redirects the subject’s attention. However, they generally remain aware of themselves and where they are. Please note that you cannot be made to do or say things you wouldn’t feel comfortable with. This heightened state helps you to reduce anxiety and be more open to suggestions, allowing the qualified professional to speak to your conscious and unconscious mind. In this state of focused attention, the mental health professional can help you focus on letting go of specific symptoms of your mental illness and focus on your goals.
Hypnosis can also be used to help those with underlying issues such as sleep problems, losing weight, making needed lifestyle changes and accepting stressful events. Hypnosis can also be used for pain control for illnesses like arthritis, patients undergoing radiation treatment or experiencing phobias such as a phobia of dental procedures.
People suffering from mental disorders like anxiety often struggle to explain their problem because it doesn’t make sense. Hypnotherapy differs from other talk-based behaviour therapies because you don’t necessarily need to explain it in great detail. You just need to explain and connect with the issue in whichever way you already do.
While many people claim that hypnosis is like magic, it is not. Hypnotherapy is collaborative. It is not something that is ‘done’ to you. Your therapist’s job is to guide you into a trance where your conscious mind is bypassed, and a direct connection is formed with your subconscious mind. It is best to begin your sessions ready to engage, follow along, think about, and use your imagination in the ways your hypnotist suggests. Hypnosis for anxiety allows you to open up the powerful resources within to treat your anxiety and give you the tools to move forward confidently into the future.

How does our Gold Coast Anxiety Treatment work?
We offer our anxiety treatment as a four-session face to face program. We like to space these sessions out over six weeks to ensure that you have sufficient time in between each session for integration and to be with you through some ups and downs of life. We also provide you with various hypnotic audio tracks and techniques and appropriate strategies to implement into your daily life and practice self-hypnosis at home.
During your first session, we will take the time to explain how hypnosis works, what to expect and find out exactly what you want to change. This way, we can go into
clinical hypnosis with the awareness of what you want to achieve and tailor your sessions around your goals.
This will then progress into your first hypnosis session, which may go in any number of directions depending on the matters you want to address and what hypnotic strategies work best for you as an individual.
Most people notice a significant shift from their very first session. But for some people, it is more gradual. No matter your situation, you will begin to notice the difference as you move through the hypnosis treatment.
The outcome of your anxiety treatment is such that you will experience a lifting feeling where you will be able to move through life without the hindrance of anxious thoughts and feelings fighting your progress. You will move towards a life where you are free, and your constant anxious overthinking comes to an end.
