Self Hypnosis retrains the brain to understand that these situations are actually safe, and that it does not need to generate anxiety responses. Although medication is often prescribed as anxiety treatment, detraumatisation and relaxation is what is required.

Hypnosis is so effective for doing this because it keeps the mind calm and relaxed while reviewing the difficult situations or experiences, so teaching the mind to respond differently.

As this happens, you will begin to feel differently about the prospect of situations that used to be frightening, until actually going back into them is a realistic prospect.

This is not an 'overnight cure' of course, but can be a great self help tool for curing anxiety, especially when used repeatedly over time. Hypnosis is a powerful, effective and 100% natural part of you...
