Hypnosis for Anxiety, Fears and Phobias
Hypnotherapy works extremely well for anxiety. Anxiety is fear that manifests in the body as physical sensations. It also manifests in the mind as overactive mental processes. These can range from mild to severe and can even be debilitating.
These physical sensations and mental processes can include:
- Elevated heart rate
- Muscle tension
- Racing Thoughts
- Over thinking and negative thoughts
- Nauseous feeling in your stomach
- Feeling dizzy or lightheaded
- Strong desire to flee from the situation you are in
- Feeling awkward in social situations
- Feeling like you just don’t fit in
Hypnosis is extremely effective for anxiety. I understand first hand what you are going through because I have been there myself.
I developed generalized anxiety and had my first panic attack in my early 20’s. I was at a social event at work and suddenly I started to feel completely unreal and spaced out. I felt dizzy, lightheaded and felt like I was going to faint. My chest was pounding so hard that I worried that something was seriously wrong with me. I felt nauseous and kept thinking about how embarrassing it would be to throw up in front of coworkers. Fear was flooding through my veins. I was terrified. It felt like I was going to die. So I told my boss I had a very bad stomachache and I had to go home sick. As soon as I left, all of these feelings immediately went away.
But this kept happening, over and over again. It started happening more frequently. I became more and more afraid to leave my house. It became hard for me to even go to work. For some reason, maybe it was the social aspect of it, but lunchtime was the worst. So I often went home at lunch instead of eating and socializing with coworkers. I would do a lot of sit-ups to try to get rid of the weird feeling in my stomach, but it didn’t help much. I thought I was losing my mind. I was terrified to tell anyone, even my mother, because I thought I would be locked up in an insane asylum! I had no idea what was happening to me, or what to do, so I went to the library, searching for some kind of answer. By pure luck (or divine intervention), I stumbled across a book on anxiety and panic attacks. That is when I first realized what was happening to me. I didn’t know what to do so I flipped through the Yellow Pages and came across a practitioner who specialized in anxiety. I immediately made an appointment.
Many of the techniques he used were hypnosis, although he did not call it that and I wasn’t aware of it until many years later. This completely saved my life and returned me to a normal functioning human being. The feeling of being free of this was incredible. This was my first experience with hypnosis and I will be forever grateful that I walked into this person’s office. Even though I have overcome my anxiety now, and 20 years have passed, I still use many of the techniques he taught me when life gets challenging.
Because of my experience using hypnosis to overcome my own personal anxiety, I am very passionate about helping others. This does work and you can take control of your life. Whether you are suffering from generalized anxiety, social anxiety, panic attacks or have specific fears, hypnosis can help.
Hypnosis will help to reprogram your thoughts and help you to take back control. I make recordings of every session so you will have these to use at home. I want people to feel very empowered and to be self sufficient, so I teach people a lot of tools and strategies for when life gets difficult. Hypnosis will help you to feel calmer, more relaxed, and more in control.
Hypnosis for Anxiety – Read What People Are Saying:
“I had a huge fear of flying, I was barely able to get on a plane. After working with Susanne, I was able to fly! Not only was I able to fly, but I was able to survive one of the most turbulent flights I had ever experienced. When before I would have been panicking and getting sick, I was able to remain calm unlike the other people in the plane. It was amazing! Also, I have been able to use all of the tools she taught me to improve many other areas of my life. Thank you!”

“I have been working with Susanne for almost a year for a variety of issues. She has always been extremely professional and caring, and always invites me to take part in my own healing process. She has helped me learn how to deal with my issues surrounding death, and now my panic attacks have all but vanished. She has used a variety of techniques, all of which she has taught me so I can use them at home or when I’m out. But, never the less, I find working with Susanne directly to be the most beneficial. I will continue going to Susanne for weight loss. I can say that Susanne is extremely knowledgable, and with her healing presence, can do wonders!! She’s the best!! “
