How hypnotherapy for anxiety works

Allow up to 1.5 hours
A standard hypnotherapy session is typically 1 hour, but I always allow 1½ hrs to ensure we have plenty of time and so that you don’t feel rushed.

Work in-person or remotely
In person work from my private secluded home address in Stow-on-the-Wold. Or remotely via Zoom, you just need to have a quiet space to talk and that you can lay back and relax during trance.

First part of the session involves psychotherapy / talking therapy
My approach is primarily solution focused. I prioritise exploring how you would like to feel in the absence of anxiety, emphasising forward-focused strategies. While occasional discussions about the past may occur, my main objective is to help you shift away from the problem and towards a more positive future.

Second part of the session involves trance
The second part of the session will involve trance which is a deep, relaxed state where your brain becomes highly receptive to positive suggestions.  It re-balances neuro pathways allowing you to feel calm, relaxed and confident.

Ending the session
Feeling a little lighter and brighter than when you first walked in and able to maintain this positive feeling going forward.

Hello, I am Lisa, a qualified hypnotherapist and anxiety therapist. You can find out more about me here. As your therapist I work with you to help you gain control of your thoughts and emotions.

Negative thought patterns can be self-limiting and can prevent us from achieving our full potential. By identifying and challenging negative thought patterns, we can learn to reframe our thoughts in a more positive and empowering way.

Combine this with hypnotic trance to access the subconscious mind, where the neuro pathways in the brain are re-balanced, clearing your head of intrusive thoughts, allowing you to work more logically and rationally, ultimately leaving you feeling calm, confident, and happy.

When calm and confident, you exude an aura of inner peace and self-assurance. You can feel comfortable in your own skin and approach life with a sense of purpose and direction.

You can have a sense of resilience, and setbacks can be seen as challenges that can be dealt with positively, calmly, and confidently.

Lisa’s a miracle worker! I highly recommend”.
