Hypnosis for Anxiety, Fears & Phobias

Hypnosis has been described as the most potent non-pharmacological relaxant known to science. As such, it is an extremely effective remedy for many ailments such as anxiety, fears and phobias.

How do we get fears and phobias? In the psychoanalytic world it is widely believed that phobias develop as a result of deeply buried early traumas. They can happen quickly, often with one event such as falling into a swimming pool as a young child and almost drowning, or watching a traumatic event such as a car accident.

Fears and phobias may also be modeled by parents and thus imitated by children. Also this behavior may be reinforced and rewarded causing it to remain unchanged.

The effects of these events can become hidden and repressed by the subconscious mind all the while influencing our thought and behavior. This results in exhibiting unexplainable anxieties, fears and phobias which negatively impact and limit our life experiences.

In the field of medical research, phobias are believed to be a physiological disorder resulting in the inappropriate triggering of anxiety responses.

Medical professionals commonly treat anxieties and phobias with drugs such as Xanax, Atenol, Valium,Lexapro, Paxil, Sinequan, Stelazine or others. Chemotherapy drugs are also prescribed to reduce the anxiety. These drugs include beta-blockers that block the anxiety pathways so the patient does not have to experience the anxiety caused by fears and phobias.

Using medication is a temporary fix for these conditions, not a cure. Once you stop taking them, unless you addressed the underlying cause, the symptoms return. And often there are unwanted side effects in taking these drugs such as those listed below.

Drowsiness, Lack of Energy, Clumsiness, Slow Reflexes, Slurred Speech, Confusion and Disorientation, Depression, Dizziness, Lightheadedness, Impaired Thinking and Judgment, Memory Loss, Forgetfulness, Nausea, Stomach Upset, Blurred or Double Vision

In hypnosis we use effective techniques to eliminate fears, phobias and anxiety and the only side effect is the elimination of the unwanted experience these feelings produce.

These techniques often provide immediate results. For example after utilizing specific techniques with a client with agoraphobia for two hours they were able to leave their house the next day while feeling more and more confident and comfortable in open spaces.

These techniques are used successfully with various anxieties such as math anxiety, dental anxiety, surgery, public speaking, performance, fear of spiders, heights, snakes, elevators, clowns, and many others.

Through the potent and relaxing qualities of hypnosis you can easily learn to replace anxieties, fears, and phobias with a permanent, non-toxic remedy that will allow you to live your life as you desire, free from these unwanted experiences. So if you or anyone you know is experiencing these limiting feelings, beliefs and behavior you just may want to try hypnosis.  Contact me for a Free consultation at (206) 459-2898.

  1. Life Coach Dave Says:

    It is truly fascinating . . . and scary too, how often we use medications as the solution to a problem that most clearly has emotional, spiritual or environmental roots. I’m one of the first people to go get antibiotics when I have strep throat, but clearly, medicated approaches like hypnosis have a real place in healing, especially in terms of anxiety remediation. I bookmarked your article for others to find, thanks!

  2. Patricia Eslava Vessey Says:

    Thanks for your comment Dave. It is so true about medication. Rather than supporting and educating people on learning to participate in mind body healing, we have all been hypnotized into believing medications are the only cure. Hypnosis can be a wonderful addition for overall wellness. Take care.
