What is Hypnotherapy for anxiety?

Hypnotherapy has been used for many years as a therapy treatment for anxiety, to help manage stress and boost confidence and performance. Hypnosis for relaxation and stress relief has been shown to help to reduce and manage levels of stress and anxiety using a variety of evidence-based techniques.

Following an extensive review of the existing literature on hypnotherapy, the British Medical Association concluded that hypnotherapy was not only effective but may be ‘the treatment of choice’ in dealing with anxiety (‘psychoneurosis’) and stress-related (‘psycho-somatic’) disorders.

Of course, if you have never experienced Hypnotherapy before, it can seem a little daunting. It’s completely understandable to feel nervous when visiting a Hypnotherapist for the first time. Your ideas about Hypnotherapy may stem from film and TV, which is often dramatised for entertainment purposes. It’s important to find a Registered Hypnotherapist that you trust.
