Hypnosis for Anxiety is frequently used to assist people with their levels of stress and anxiety.

Stress and anxiety are responses to external threats. The body responds to the external treats via the Hypothalamus, Pituitary, Adrenal loop. In response to perceived external threats a lot of stress chemicals are released that place the body on alert and in a hypervigilant state.

As an occasional response to external threats to your body it works brilliantly. However, in environments where the stress is constant and ongoing it can have profoundly negative effects on a person’s peace of mind and physical body. Ongoing stress has been said to have a contribution to 80% of all modern diseases.

Hypnosis works very well with stress and anxiety in that it can reprogram the internal response to the external environment. Once an internal response in automated it is perpetuated.  Hypnosis retrains the brain to experience the external environment as less stressful or to solve the problems presented in the external environment thereby reducing the stress.

Anxiety and panic attacks are similarly learned responses to stressful environment. From an evolutionary perspective this makes a lot of sense.  Learn a strong response that assists survival given in strongly negative environment that could affect survival.

However, responses to stressful environment can be learnt. When anyone undergoes pilot training a significant proportion of that that training is committed to learning functional responses to foreseeable highly stressful potential happenings, eg. Your engine stops working just after takeoff. This practice of response to stressful environment is fundamental to performing well in those environments.

This can be rapidly done with hypnosis so the unconscious mind, the part of you that knows and chooses how to respond in any situation, can choose a different way of responding to stressful situations so that you can get a lot more of the results that you like.

Additionally, once those ways of responding are repeated they become what you do.
