The prevailing medical treatment for depression and anxiety involves medication. Usually it involves trying a number of drugs that don’t work, in order to find the one that “does work.” When the drug “works” it means that the worst symptoms subside (often only for a few months) — but a new set of symptoms may be added that the depressed individual wasn’t dealing with prior to taking the drugs! Drowsiness, nervousness, lack of libido and weight gain are some of the most common side effects experienced with antidepressants and anti-anxiety drugs.
With hypnotherapy it is possible to expose the root causes of most forms of depression, anxiety, and panic attacks. The root cause may be an unresolved, emotionally traumatic experience and/or an unfortunate habit of destructive thinking. In either case, once the nature of the problem is revealed in trance, it can be corrected through hypnotic communication with the subconscious mind.
It’s not that medical professionals are trying to make things worse for their clients; it’s simply that their training places heavy emphasis on pharmaceuticals as a “treatment.” But when drugs create a fresh slew of problems for people who are already suffering, can that really be considered an adequate way to address the issue?
Working with the root of the problem at the level of the subconscious mind, I have used hypnotherapy with my clients who suffer from:
Anxiety and Worry
Typically it takes between 3 to 10 sessions for someone with any or all of these issues to experience dramatic relief from their symptoms. Better yet, using my method of transpersonal hypnosis and hypnotherapy/NLP, the problem is pulled out by the root, so to speak. Rather than simply treating the symptoms with drugs, the client is empowered by learning how to tap the vast resources of their own subconscious mind. What they learn in their sessions can then be applied in many other areas of their lives as well.
May we all experience freedom from suffering!
