Although you may see the benefit of hypnosis and neurofeedback for anxiety treatment, you may still have some questions and concerns about the process…
I doubt hypnosis and neurofeedback will really change my life for the better.
Change is possible. It’s perfectly normal and honestly very easy for our lives to get off track. This method can help all ages from toddlers to seniors address a variety of issues. Many people have successfully used it to become more focused, elevate their moods and feel less stress. And, it doesn’t matter whether the problem is physical, mental or emotional because, by addressing the central nervous system, we address every aspect of our functioning. My holistic approach can help you break bad habits, overcome fears and transform your life for the better.
I’m afraid of making significant changes to my relationships or way of life.
I know that change can be frightening. Often, we form relationships that are self-sabotaging. We often empathize with people that share our fears, anxieties and other negative emotions. As you begin to recognize and heal those negative patterns in session, you may have to learn to re-navigate those relationships in a way that promotes your positive health. You can make positive changes that allow you to foster healthy, supportive relationships and long-term wellbeing. Often when one partner has a healthy transformation, it can help bias the other partner to make healthy changes.
If I do the neurofeedback or hypnotherapy, will I re-experience painful memories or possibly realize something terrible about myself?
Your experience in the hypnosis exercise is similar to meditation, where positive suggestions are given to experience, and you will only take the suggestions that support a healthy thought, feeling or vision of what is possible. It’s not something I can force you to do, so anything that you experience from the neurofeedback or hypnosis are of your volition. Plus, hypnosis is just like relaxing. It’s something you do naturally all the time. When you’re driving and miss your exit because you’re spacing out or when you can’t remember what you just read—that’s hypnosis. It’s like daydreaming.
In session, you will close your eyes and relax every muscle in your body. Then your mind will go quiet, and it’ll feel good. As I give you suggestions, your brain will introduce itself to new possibilities. This is all meant to promote positive, healthier ways of thinking and being. You can do all this without traveling back into the past or ruminating further in your fears and anxiety.
