Hypnosis Can Help You With Stress
Using hypnotherapy for for anxiety and stress relief helps a person to become very relaxed and attain an altered state of consciousness known as a trance.
In the hypnosis condition, a person becomes very focused and attentive and is subject to suggestions made by the hypnotherapist. The job of the hypnotherapist is to help the person develop a better understanding of the conditions that have contributed to the stress that he or she feels, to see how stress can be beneficial and how it can be harmful, and to understand how he or she can make changes to better deal with stressful situations.
The end result of a successful hypnotherapy session is that a person will have a more realistic perception of the seriousness of problems he or she faces, and become less likely to overreact to stressful situations and instead find healthier more productive solutions.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Hypnosis may also be combined with other types of therapy, such as cognitive behavioral therapy.
Cognitive behavioral therapy is a form of psychotherapy in which a person learns how to replace negative, unhealthy thoughts and behaviors with ones that are positive and healthy. The state in which hypnotherapy can place a person often helps achieve this conversion more easily, and thus the two techniques are often used to compliment each other.

Hypnotherapy and Anxiety
If you are an anxious person you may think it would be difficult to relax enough to enter the trance state required for hypnotic work to be effective.
However, both your subconscious mind (feeling and behaviors you are not aware of) and your conscious mind (the awareness of what you are doing) are always present and listening on some level. If a person consciously wants help for their anxiety, the subconscious mind will go along with it.
Anxiety comes in many forms, and for some people it manifests in physical ways such as pain or illness.
It’s a bit like a coffee cup being filled to the top and then continuing to be filled even though it’s overflowing. The extra coffee has to go somewhere so it spills out of the cup because the cup can’t hold anymore.
Our excessive anxiety can overflow from our minds taking over a vulnerable part of the body causing a variety of issues such as migraines or back pain. Many times the painful conditions people have which doctors aren’t able to diagnose or find an origin for are caused by our minds not being able to contain any more perceived stress or anxiety.
In a sense the brain tries to relieve some of the burden by letting it overflow to the body. The pain or illness then becomes a distraction so that the person can avoid dealing with a difficult emotional issue. In many cases, a person becomes so ill that they have to take a significant break from their daily lives in order to heal or get better.
Oftentimes people are suffering from high levels of stress and anxiety which can include, insomnia, headaches, stomach pain with no medical diagnosis, fears or phobias, nail biting, PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder).
You may even be experiencing situational stress and just need realignment to get back to your normal carefree self. Hypnotherapy is a drug/medication free approach to physical and psychological well being.
Please keep in mind that everyone is different, results and length of therapy varies for each individual.
