In simple terms, Anxiety is the creation of an imaginary future event followed by the churning, worry of that imagined event.

In hypnotherapy we talk to the subconscious mind, estimated to be 30,000 times more powerful than the conscious, critical mind... that's a lot of power to enable your change.

There's so much that can easily and pleasantly be achieved through hypnotherapy that it makes you wonder why it's not more common, simply, there's no money in it, unlike drug therapies that rake in $billions daily for something that is non-healing and for the most part little more than a band-aid therapy. With hypnotherapy, we're talking about changing your life, bypassing fear triggers, turning them into positives, building confidence, contentment, strength, resilience and self-belief. Creating new life paths of positive, fun, feel-good living. Learning how to live, something that's not taught, even though you all have super-computers in your heads... which tend to run amok if improperly or ignorantly used... or if not used at all.


Hypnosis in the treatment of anxiety- and stress-related disorders.

Expert Rev. Neurother. 10(2), 263–273 (2010)

• Hypnosis has been shown to be effective in reducing state anxiety associated with cancer, surgery, burns and a variety of medical/dental procedures.

• Self-hypnosis training has also been demonstrated to effectively treat anxiety-related disorders, such as tension headaches, migraines and irritable bowel syndrome.

• Six studies have demonstrated changes in trait anxiety from self-hypnosis training, but further randomized controlled outcome studies would be desirable on the hypnotic treatment of generalized anxiety disorder and in further documenting changes in trait anxiety.
