Hypnotherapy is a successful approach in releasing past experiences and emotions that are stuck in your subconscious mind. This is "free floating" anxiety or trauma response, which appears to come out of nowhere and for no likely reason. Your subconscious is recalling a the unwanted emotions. Your senses can trigger a subconscious response such as smelling or seeing something that reminds you of the past experience. Hypnosis retrains your subconscious to create new emotional responses.
Anxiety Disorders can be very mysterious to those that experience the racing thoughts, constant worry, panic, lack of concentration, intrusive thoughts, palpitations, or feeling of impending doom. When in reality with psycho-education to learn what anxiety really is and where is comes from and tools are learned through cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, clinical hypnosis, and lifestyle changes, clients can easily tame this "beast" once and for all!
As a woman who has experienced pregnancy, motherhood, marriage, 2 auto-immune disorders, working full time and running my private practice, I KNOW how much life can take out of you! It is inevitable that women will face many life transitions and stressors. This alone can wreak havoc on our physical and mental health. I provide a comprehensive and integrative approach to help women manage this "roller coaster" with all the many hats we wear!
Chronic Stress causes more damage to our bodies than we realize. Whether it is headaches, digestive issues, insomnia, moodiness, brain fog, sadness, fatigue, or low motivation that you experience, all can be a result of the body being in a constant state of fight or flight. A rush of stress hormones are released and the body has a difficult time returning to homeostasis. Through an integrative approach, the mind and body can start to move towards homeostasis/balance with a relief in symptoms
