You know the feeling of worrying about something, a niggle you can’t get rid of? Sometimes these feelings occur when you go to bed at night and wake you up half way through your night. I see people who have broken sleep due to worries and anxieties, people who simply feel exhausted. I have experienced it myself so understand how it drains you.
When we feel anxious, and it can happen in different ways, it is that part of your mind that is programmed from your experiences in life that keep your mind alert. Often this part of your ‘primitive’ mind can be over cautious, over anxious, always watching out for possibilities that may trip you up. Possibly health worries, financial events, relationships, self image, confidence and more.
Where does hypnotherapy fit in? It can help to relax your mind (and body – think of aches and pains). When you relax it sends a sign to your ‘primitive’ part of your mind that actually, life is safe. Gradually this becomes a learnt behaviour and the feelings of anxiety become less as you manage your thoughts and your life more easily – you are back in control.
