Can you be too anxious for hypnotherapy to work?

Has somebody told you that you have to relax for hypnotherapy to work? Or have you tried it with somebody who didn’t realise that you can’t be too anxious for hypnotherapy to work?

Hypnosis is not about relaxing, although that is a commonly used method to attain a trance state. However, it is a fallacy that you need to be able to relax in order to benefit from hypnotherapy.

There are many ways to get into trance and one of my favourites for people who are afraid of ‘letting go’ or using relaxation is a combination of EFT and NLP where you are always awake and aware.

Having said that, relaxation is obviously a very useful skill to learn for anxiety!

EFT – Emotional Freedom Technique

EFT is a Meridian Therapy, in that it uses acupuncture or meridian points to help fast track emotional traumas, phobias and help with addictions.

It is a method of emotional and neurological control based on acupressure and involves tapping on acupressure/acupuncture points. Since acupuncture meridians extend to the brain, tapping on these points allows brain function to be modified by releasing negative emotions and even ameliorating some neurological conditions.

Energy EFT

Using EFT with energy in mind, you can experience faster, more focused, more logical EFT self help treatments and go much further into the realms of empowerment, mental clarity and having all the energy you need to succeed in life.

The EFT tapping techniques are a series of astoundingly fast and easy processes can help just about anyone to achieve genuine freedom from the emotions that have created problems in their lives. These techniques have been described by some as one of the most important breakthroughs in the area of psychology in this century. They have been used successfully with thousands of people with a broad range of difficulties.

EFT has been successfully applied to treat a wide range of emotional problems and issues, including anxiety, fears, phobias, trauma, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, grief, anger, guilt, etc. It has also been applied to enhance performance and improve relationships. In relationships, EFT can help us by reducing the emotional upsets towards our partner, many of which have their origins in our past. Using EFT, couples can overcome many of the barriers to friendship and closeness.

Some problems do require persistence with the technique over a period of time, and some therapists will use a combination of EFT, EMDR and Hypnotherapy, CBT or NLP.
