Anxiety  and Chronic Stress Therapy


 

cycle of anxiety edited
Anxiety and panic attacks can be resolved in as little as 1-3 sessions... Anxiety symptoms affect many people. Its natural to be anxious at times, but when the anxiety is constant or when anxiety and panic attacks are frequent then it needs to be managed and dealt with. But how?

My hypnotic approach to treating anxiety disorders incorporates two aspects:
    

◦    treating the symptoms
    

◦    uncovering the root   causes

I address the symptoms by getting instantly to the source of the problem, your mind.You see the subconcious has many functions, its where "habits" get formed or programs , but its also in direct communication with your body.So the subconcious effect the way you feel emotionally and how your physical body responds.So in treating your anxiety at a subconcious level, we can stop those ruminating thoughts, release anxiety, slow down a rapid beating heart, sooth gurgling stomachs and add additional external anchors to reinforce CALM.Through the power of hypnosis we can imbue deep subconcious cues so you have  instant relaxation  to help you cope with stress, tension, and anxiety episodes on the fly, immediately, wherever they occur. These skills include refocusing, distraction, cognitive reframing, thought interruption & deep breathing.

Fears, generalized anxiety, panic and phobias can be controlled using Clinical Hypnosis, Cognitive-Behavior Therapy and Relaxation Therapy. Through the use of hypnosis, you can learn to "un-install" anxious thoughts and in their place, "install" positive, realistic coping thoughts into your subconscious and conscious minds.

Anxiety can be a result of genetic predisposition or situational caused by events in your life and or a cumulative series of events.Often when anxiety comes into your life it is a sign that you need to observe yourself , some how you haven't been micromanaging YOU .This lack of looking after you even when you don't think you need it, and pushing down your voice, feelings, feeling powerless, creates emotional bricks.As these bricks accumulate your body and your mind become walled in creating a physiological response.

Added to this overwhelment is that internal switch that is then easily "revved" from 0-100 producing a multitude of umcomfortable feelings'breathlessness,knot in stomach, ruminations,fears,powerlessness,foggy brain, negative mindset and  more.

Hypnosis  effectively  imprints coping skills into your Subconscious Mind in a way that is FAST, INSTANT and PERMANENT. When you learn and practice Self Hypnosis, you can mentally practice and rehearse effective cognitive, behavioral and relaxation coping skills so that they become conscious AND subconscious habits. This is a very important component of your healing.

CHRONIC STRESS:

 

stress-symptoms

The first law of wellness is to Calm the Turbulence. By “turbulence,” I mean chronic psychological stress.

Chronic stress is much different than acute stress. Acute stress is our natural reaction to danger. Like other mammals, we have evolved to be constantly on guard for possible external threats. And when we perceive a threat, our body reacts immediately. This reaction is called the stress response.

For example, suppose you’re hiking in the woods and see a bear (or agressive Male Kangaroo) on the trail in front of you. Your body immediately responds by pumping a host of hormones into your blood. These hormones cause a number of physiological reactions. Your heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing rate increase. Your cells pump out extra energy. Your sensory acuity increases. Other physiological changes also take place. This stress response to perceived threat is natural. It helps you prepare for a dangerous situation very quickly. Once the danger has passed,your body returns to its normal state.

Chronic stress is different. Chronic stress can develop from continually worrying about finances, relationships, health, or countless other life issues. In today’s world, we may feel under stress from the time we get up in the morning until we lay our heads down at night.

It starts in the morning with finding you’re out of your favorite cereal. Then you get stuck in traffic and arrive late to work. You find your computer is down. The girl in the cubicle down the hall says something snide to you. At lunch, your order is late. The meat loaf is cold. Back at the office, phone calls keep interrupting your work. You have to stay late to finish up. You get stuck in traffic again on the way home. You arrive at 8:30. The kids are irritable. Dinner is cold. Having felt stress almost constantly throughout the day, you just want to go to bed.

The Toll of Chronic Stress

The problem with chronic stress is that the stress response occurs again and again, sometimes without letup. Your body doesn’t return to its normal state. The extra hormones—such as cortisol, catecholamines, and vasopressin—continue circulating in your blood, gradually doing damage.

The excess cortisol suppresses the immune system, which is so crucial to fighting off bodily threats such as dangerous bacteria and cancer.

Both cortisol and catecholamines contribute to type 2 diabetes by elevating blood glucose levels.

Catecholamines and vasopressin increase blood pressure, which increases the risk of cardiovascular disease.

In addition to overproducing stress hormones, psychological stress increases the activation of blood platelets, which play an important role in the evolution of plaques and the arterial clotting that leads to strokes. Research also shows that chronic stress increases the risk of asthma, gastrointestinal disorders, cardiovascular disease, and even cancer.

In a word, over time, chronic stress can be a killer.

Chronic stress also takes a large toll in the other three dimensions of our lives. It decreases our enjoyment of life. It interferes with our problem-solving abilities. It can impair our social relationships and detract from the spiritual dimension of our lives. It has been called “the ailment of our time.” Its prevalence in today’s society and the damage it does to our lives is why Calm the Turbulence is one of the Seven Laws of Wellness. In today’s world, it is crucial to learn strategies for dealing successfully with chronic stress so we can stay calm in stormy seas.
