Hypnotherapy for anxiety - has anyone tried it?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Has anyone got any experience of hypnotherapy for anxiety?  I have been diagnosed with GAD and had one session of hypnotherapy after exhausting many other options.  Too early to tell at the moment but would be interested to hear others experiences.

    Hi. I had hypnotherapy when my anxiety was really bad. It really helped. Think I had 4-5 sessions. Didn't cute it but def helped with minimising the physical symptoms xx

      Thanks for this. I have a second session  this week on Wednesday. I had first one last Thursday and had virtually no palpitations that day or the next. They have come back over the weekend so I felt a little disappointed. He gave me a recording to do which makes me feel very relaxed at the time but not all day. Early days, I guess!

      Yes just remember that there is no quick fix - although I wish all the time there was! 

      Def do the recording - my hypnotherapist gave them to me too and I use to listen to then every night and morning to help prepare myself for the day. The only thing that I have found that has really actually helped is a mixture of counselling, tapping and EFT. Hypnotherapy def helped me when I was at my worst and needed to deal with the physical symptoms x
