Are you suffering from Anxiety and Depression?
Anxiety and Depression Hypnotherapy in Sydney is an effective way to deal with Anxiety. Anxiety is a part of who we are as humans, but in some cases, it can become an extreme matter that interferes with how we live.
Hypnotherapy for Anxiety and Depression at our Sydney clinic helps patients to access the power of the mind to improve the way you think and feel about your life as a whole.
Everyone is aware of how it feels to be nervous. Whether it’s a job interview, a test or a date – we’ve all experienced this emotion in some way or another. However, anxiety should not be excessive or consistent, nor should it hold you back with how you are progressing at work and in life. You should be able to do all the things you enjoy doing without anxiety interfering with your relationships or your level of confidence.
Anxiety and Depression is influenced by our thoughts as it manifests in our emotional body and then in our human body as disease. Whether the actual situation at hand is a good or bad one, anxiety and depression can hinder the way we respond and cope with them. How we think about challenging situations reflects how we deal with them emotionally.
Hypnosis for Anxiety and Depression can help calm the mind and body
It does this by introducing positive thoughts to provide support, calmness and strategies to deal with confidence. This practice of hypnosis is a powerful method to create a brighter focus on the present moment. Usually, anxiety of associated with the anticipation of the future. Mostly associated with a potential threat, discomfort or uncertainty of future events. In Hypnosis, we learn to resolve the feelings of uncertainty and use our inner wisdom in realising that the potential threats are no longer there. These beliefs in uncertainty may come from the past and can be easily resolved so the present is filled with comfort, acceptance and harmony.
The more you practice generating these messages and patterns of thinking, the more you will experience an improvement in mood. Neurotransmitters in the brain are activated when a trigger sets off the survival part of our brain. We then excessively sweat, our heart rate increases and we release stress hormones in our body. When we relax and reframe limiting beliefs, our mental, emotional and physiological functions change as we use the higher mind (neo-cortex) to reason in situations of stress. When we do relax, our body will be able to embrace natural chemicals that feel good. If you can learn how to switch off the “fight or flight” response that happens in the brain, you will access a relaxed state that allows for recuperation.
Hypnotherapy for Anxiety and Depression in Sydney is a great place to start. Depression is often a reaction to a distressing or traumatic event. The people and situations who are associated with the traumatic event in our lives are referred to as traumatic triggers.
Someone can have a trigger from Depression as a post traumatic feeling after a traumatic event. For example, we may feel depressed after loved ones pass over. After a loved one passes on, there are many things we have to deal with that we normally wouldn’t in everyday life. Taking on responsibility we didn’t have before. All of these things can become traumatic triggers. If we lose a loved one and don’t have time to recover and grieve properly, depression may set in almost immediately. We can experience traumatic triggers from losing a job, losing money, divorce or home foreclosure. We then create limiting beliefs which stop us from experiencing joy and happiness in our lives.
Depression can manifest when our expectation in life have not been met, either from ourself or another person such as a partner, friend or family member. These expectations can also be a job, a relationship or an existential hope of reaching a level of spiritual development that hasn’t been reached. We sometimes give up when these expectations haven’t been met and loose hope that these expectation will ever be met. In this therapy, we will look at ways to aim for things that are realistic that compliment your true authentic self and find strategies to make things work for you to reach your goals in life.

Healing the Inner Child hypnotherapy is offered here in this Sydney clinic. Hypnotherapy, suggestion and regression therapy is used to create a landscape for self-healing. As we begin the process of Inner child healing, we tap into feeling states we may have experienced in our younger years by changing negative patterns and clearing emotional blockages. We can release deep anger, rage, guilt and painful wounds that exist deep in our unconscious mind.
Do you suffer from Mental Illness or Depression?
Often these symptoms will be treated with drugs prescribed by a doctor. Anti-depressants, sleep medication, and perhaps a diet or stop smoking program will be prescribed. It’s a good idea to see a doctor first before seeing a Hypnotherapist.
With duty of care for my clients, I need to ask before we proceed with a session. I am not able to facilitate Hypnotherapy if you have a mental illness such Schizophrenia, Bipolar or Borderline Personality Disorder. If you are on Depression medication, you will need to get a doctors referral first before the session and bring the referral to the session.
Masking rather than treating with Medications
Medications are not dealing with the cause of the problem and can mask the problem. Counselling and other mainstream therapies can deal with the issues for a short while but don’t deal with the deeper underlying causes of Depression. Hypnotherapy can be a great complimentary therapy with other psychotherapy techniques. Clinical Hypnotherapy is now considered as an advanced form of therapy and considered as an effective treatment option for depression. If you are on medication for depression, always check with your doctor if Hypnotherapy is right for you. Never change or reduce medications for Hypnotherapy without consulting your doctor. So don’t stop any therapies or medications. Always consult your doctor first and if you aim to get off medications or stop other treatments, always seek advice from you doctor first.
A consultation with a Doctor or Psychologist can work well with Hypnotherapy for Anxiety or Depression
A medical practitioner will eliminate any other possible cause to how you are feeling. If you are experiencing severe anxiety, adding hypnotherapy into your treatment plan will fast track a positive change.
