Stand up to the bully in your brain
Anxiety is a learned pattern of thought. When we perceive a situation as dangerous, our brains release stress hormones which motivate us to fight or run away. Centuries ago, this was useful in dealing with harmful animals or aggressive strangers. The problem is that many of our perceived threats in modern society are things that can’t be attacked or run away from: things like career performance, social judgements, public speaking, important decisions. But when we feel threatened, our brain still responds with that fight or flight impulse—and the more often our brain takes that path, the more of a habit it becomes.
Hypnosis can help
Hypnosis allows people to break the habitual thought patterns that keep them stuck with undesired experiences. Once the patterns are broken, we can form new responses to old triggers. Using hypnosis in conjunction with the latest neuroscience can create calmness, collectedness, and capabilities that become automatic responses to formerly triggering situations.
What is hypnosis like?
Unlike what you see in the movies, hypnosis is not a loss of control. Hypnosis is the deliberate use of communication to guide the subject into a natural state of concentration and imagination. Hypnotized subjects usually retain full awareness during a session; there is no "blackout" or loss of memory. Hypnosis is different for everyone, and many subjects report feeling calm, comfortable, curious, and even energized. Won't it be interesting to find out what hypnosis is like for you?
